Galaxy boss happy of Beckahms' short term loan

The Los Angeles Galaxy head coach Bruce Arena has backed David Beckham's loan move to AC Milan as being beneficial to the Major League Soccer club.

Arena said the Galaxy had insisted the England midfielder return from Italy to begin the 2009 league campaign in March.

And the former USA national team coach told reporters on Thursday he was happy to let Beckham go to the Serie A club, who have also agreed to enter into a ''technical relationship'' with the MLS outfit, the details of which have yet to be disclosed.

''I'm fine with everything,'' Arena said. ''I have a very good feel for the situation. We've been in, and we'll continue to be in contact with AC Milan and we have a technical relationship with them as well.

''We're all agreed in principle and everybody's happy. A short-term loan works,'' Arena added. ''I did this at DC United with Marco Etcheverry, with Jaime Moreno, with Ben Olsen - I don't have a problem with it. He's going to be back in March and we believe it's going to be around March 1 and he will be available for our opening game.

''I haven't seen the exact details of the loan agreement yet but we fully anticipate that this loan is for approximately two months although there is a possibility he could go in December.The most important aspect of this loan in our view is that he is back here early March.''

Arena said the length of Beckham's loan spell had been the only sticking point in negotiations between the two clubs as he bids to turn the Galaxy around after they missed out on the post-season MLS Cup play-offs for the second year in a row.

''We have a couple of objectives here. We are absolutely adamant about the fact that the club has not played well over the last couple of years,'' Arena continued.

''We think it's critical that we start 2009 the right way and that we place an improved team on the field because we have great fans and great support here.

''In order to do that we need David Beckham on the field and we need to have all of our key players here as we open our 2009 season if we're going to move forward and that was the critical aspect in this loan, there's no question about that.''

Arena also said he was pleased to have forged a technical partnership with the Italian club.

''I'm prepared to tell you how we're going to benefit from this but I think it's just a positive that we are working with a club of this stature.''

Arena added that the cancellation of the Galaxy's tour game in Australia against the Queensland Roar on December 11 in Brisbane had been as a precaution against Beckham being unavailable.

''We were hesitant to go ahead and commit without knowing whether David would be there or not,'' he explained.

''I imagine this allows David to have a little bit of a break before he heads over to Italy.''

Will be out for more than a week

How I wanna blog about so many things and yet I know I need to put it all at a side for the moment, as the date to my final examination draw closer.

I won't be blogging about a week...probably be back here by 13th November.
Love you guys lots!

My birthday...thanks everyone!!

I was a bit exhausted by the time I reached home to Ipoh on Monday, and I knew I'll be going out at night again for my birthday with a bunch of good friends. Miss them lots as I have not been hanging out with them for quite a while.

Anyway, I felt that it's different...the feeling is not the same anymore. It's as if a group of close friends coming to a time when they are going to say Goodbye.

Guys, I really wanna said that things could have change and is different. But I'm still the same Kian Hin. The guy that will stand by your side in times when the world is against you. This is the only assurance I could give you as a friend, as a brother. My birthday wish is really for this friendship to continue to last, and blossom and be a great blessing to many others.

Unwrapping the gifts...guys, I love it lots...means a lot to me

My best pal for life, Jian Yao, Liang Hin, Sam C., Yen Leng (girlfriend), Addie, Me, Alicia Yap
The person who took this photo is Aunty Lindy, a 'spiritual mother' to me in a lot of ways...really appreciate the years spent together.

This was when I went out with my friends. Today I went out with Yen Leng for HIGH SCHOOL MUSICAL 3. Maybe she don't know about it but tears were flowing out my eyes as I watched the movie. It reflected on how a lot of my friendship has come to an end as well. Anyway I really enjoy the day with her. Thanks for planning and thinking so much for me. I love you, Yen Leng.

My best birthday gift is that despite of all that's going through in my life, I know you're there for me always.

Cameron trip

Exam is next week and I was too busy to get near any of my books.
Being away during the weekend with my family in Cameron and celebrating my birthday with my friends and girlfriend on Monday and Tuesday are wonderful but definitely a REMINDER for me that my exam is just 7 days away.

Excited about the trip!!

The apartment we staying in....

A thumbs up from my bro...

Throughout this trip, it really made me realize how wonderful this family is despite of the fact that there are so much differences among us.
I knew that this sort of trip is like a family gathering for me, with my aunties and uncles joining in and that's what make the trip different, because it's not about having fun, but staying together and doing things together, as a family.

Doing the dancing walk on the road....some crazy family!!

my sister saying Hi to the cameraman, ME!!

The muscleman, my Uncle....

Here's the handsome guy, my bro...

A bit of "SPARTAN'S DANCE" during the walk...

Well, not everyone can dance right?

Reaching our destination, from Tanah Rata to Brinchang...not bad for a group of "lazy ass"...

Some of the places we visit in Cameron

That would be my trip to Cameron....not too exciting but definitely a good place and time to hang out with family.

United hit 3 against Celtic, as a goal scoring spree in CHAMPIONS LEAGUE

The Red Devils are in red hot form now...

Berbatov double and Wayne Rooney continue his on form in front of goal has put United at the top with a solid 3 - 0 against Celtic. And although both goals from Berbatov seem to be coming from the offside position, there is no denying the fact that Manchester United deserve the victory.
Another one going in...

Meanwhile, another English side, Arsenal prove to be still a threat in the Europe with their stunning form, thrashing Fenerbahce 5 -2 with Adebayor, Theo Walcott, Abou Diaby, Alexandre Song and Aaron Ramsey all hitting the target. In fact, within the first hour, 4 goals has already come from Arsenal.
This could probably be a sign that the English side might still rule Europe for this season.

This could be the winner, a relief for the coach, Ranieri.

Meanwhile, in Italy, with tragedy happening outside of the game, the Italian legendary football club, Juventus prove to still be a strong challenger for the title when they get a deserving victory against nine time European champions, Real Madrid. Del Piero hit the target in 5 minutes while Amauri double the lead. And although Ruud van Nistelrooy managed to reduce the loss, it seems that Juventus indeed deserve this victory, after not winning in their last 5 games in all competition. Indeed a relief for Ranieri.

The other results are as follow:

Villareal 6 - 3 AaB

Zenit St Petersburg 1 - 1 BATE Borisov

Bayern Munich 3 - 0 Fiorentina

FC Porto 0 - 1 Dynamo Kiev

Steaua Bucuresti 3 - 5 Lyon

Making the best out of our lives...

I was just reading this blog from a friend of mine...that it is not the length of life that matters but the depth of it.
Indeed, throughout my entire youth, at times I wonder why is it that I wasted it in the Youth group in church and not spending my time doing things in school, "leaving a legacy behind in my school", like how many of my friends did....William, Wai Hin, Keith, Kee Cheong and others.
At times, I felt I wasted my youth trying to make a difference in the wrong place.
But as I was reflecting on my past, I believe that the years spent in Youth, and how I make the most of it...I should never regret of it despite of the fact that it did not end happily.
Throughout my entire Youth, I think I have been influential and inspirational to many others...and how the lives of many others speak into mine as well. No doubt about it, the commitment and love shown to this family, TIMOTHY cell has left me dry up a little bit as time pass by and how most friendship could easily be forgotten just like that, but still there are many others that has left a great impact in my life.

I think staying in the Youth and serving in the Youth Ministry in church has taught me much and indeed, it is not the length of time that I spend in this Ministry that counts. There are those who are serving in the church for like 20+ years but what is it if that length of time is spent on selfish power and control.

I think there is much depth in my moment in the church ministry....someone who has been there, growing and giving its' best in every single way.

I believe it is indeed time to move on to something and today, I finally could put a closure to this chapter of my life.

Stuck inside UM....

I felt rather suffocated to be stuck inside UM while I could actually go home if not because of the stupid presentation on Friday.
Nevertheless, I thought why not use this time to edit my blog as well....haha!
I thought of editing the layout but then the thought of creating another blog seems to attract me in a way. Probably thanks to the comment by Evon....loL! Evon was telling me that I should blog more about my own personal life instead of being a little bit too political. I must admit that I was a bit political in a few posting but probably I begin to realize how much it means to take part of the nation's situation.

And that I'm a Malaysian who is also ready to make my stand for democracy rights and to help create a better country.

So, I might just create a blog for political purpose....but then, it's all just part of the thoughts in my mind at the moment. Not much action is taken for now.

Well, before I forgot, I must really thank Evon for waiting for me to go back together on Friday...really appreciate that a lot. My birthday is coming soon....another week...7 more days to go and it will be me becoming 20.

Haha! Anyway I'm just feeling a bit too bored at the moment, stuck inside University Malaya...
Feeling really moody now....

Rooney goal scoring spree thanks to teammates....

England striker Wayne Rooney paid tribute to his team-mates after scoring another two goals in tonight's 3-1 win in Belarus.Rooney's second double for the team in four days, following a brace against Kazakhstan, helped maintain England's 100% start to their World Cup qualifying campaign.

Yet the in-form Manchester United star, who also scored against Croatia last month, was modest about his efforts.

He told Setanta Sports: "I think I owe a lot of credit to my team-mates - great individual work by Emile for the first goal and a great pass by Stevie.''

With 12 points from their four games, England have now made their best-ever start in World Cup qualifying and Rooney felt tonight's win was thoroughly deserved.

He added: "I think it was really good, we had to work really hard.

"Belarus are a good football team, they pass the ball well, similar to Arsenal.

"We worked hard - I think we deserved three points.

"To get three points and 12 from four games is a great boost.''

England captain Rio Ferdinand was pleased with the performance but insisted the job was still far from done.

"It's good but still there is much to improve. It doesn't make us qualify because we have won four on the bounce - it puts us in a good position.

"We are happy with where we are but we want to keep going in the right direction and winning games.

"We made sure we were a tight unit and not easy to get through. The one time they got the ball behind us they scored.

"We are disappointed in that aspect but we managed to score some good goals.''

Ferdinand also praised the efforts of Steven Gerrard, who after criticising his own performances earlier this week, opened the scoring in Minsk.

"I am delighted,'' he said. "Maybe he was a little over-critical of himself. You can't always be superman for every game you play.

"He does it a lot for Liverpool and he has done it a couple of times for England.

"He is his own worst critic because you want to do it all the time for England. Tonight was a step in the right direction, it was a great finish."

Gerrard admitted he was happy to put all the debate about his role within the England side behind him after starring in the win.

The Liverpool midfielder set England on their way to victory with a long-range effort after 11 minutes.

"Playing for England you always have a point to prove,'' he told Setanta Sports.

"You are fighting for the shirt every game and it's always nice to score and win.

"A lot of people have been talking about me and Frank Lampard and where I'm going to play all week but as long as I am in this team and we are winning football matches then I'm happy.

"I thought I played well tonight. But every game I play for club or country I try and play the best I can do.

"Sometimes I haven't always hit the heights I would have liked to but I'm moving forward now and I'll continue to work hard and give everything I have got for the country.''

The 28-year-old said he was relishing his next game in an England shirt.

"When you are winning you want the next game to be around the corner, but it's nice to be top of the league going into the end of the year,'' said Gerrard.

"We have got a couple of friendlies before the next match where we can try different things and by the time the next qualifier comes around I'm sure we'll be even better again.''

Rooney received special praise for his performance from Gerrard.

"When Wayne's in this type of form he's up there with the best players in the world,'' said Gerrard.

"He's a special talent and the understanding and awareness he has is fantastic. It's a pleasure to play with him.

He did warn, however, that despite the win, England will still have to improve if they are to become world-beaters.

"We are slowly building into a good team but there's a long way to go yet before we get to where we want to be,'' he said.

England manager Fabio Capello was quick to stress the importance of team unity in his side's victory.

Tonight's win means England have got off to their best start in a World Cup qualifying campaign and Capello said he was delighted with the win, which he saw as a superb team effort.

"I'm very happy, it was a very important game for us,'' the Italian told Setanta Sports.

"Belarus are a good team. We played well in the first half but in the second half we played better.

"Gerrard played well but all the players did. It is very important for us if we want to play well we have to play like a team and not as single players.

"Tonight I saw one team and that was very important for us.

"Wayne Rooney is on good form at the moment and worked hard for the team tonight, but it wasn't just him. All the players played fantastic tonight.''

Capello urged caution, however, when asked whether England's fourth consecutive qualifying campaign win marked the start of a new era of success for the Three Lions.

"It is only one step. It was an important victory but we have to play more games before we get to South Africa,'' he added.

Tevez story of his lack of GOALS this season....

Manchester United striker Carlos Tevez believes the demands of English football have lessened his threat in front of goal.

The Argentina international has scored just once this season and he feels his form has been affected because of the work he has to do for the team in a highly-competitive Premier League.

"I'm not as dangerous. I'm not as effective in the penalty area any more," he said.

"That is something I have lost and I have to get that back. I used to score better goals, great goals.

"But something strange has happened. I think it has to do with the fact that the person up front has to do a lot more for the team than just score goals.

"They have to play more for the team and I think I have sacrificed myself recently with regards to that aspect."

I wanna fuc###### complain of these shits!!


I was feeling rather shitty today.
I have to prepare for the slide presentation for my business project in University Malaya.
Honestly I felt very disappointed with the group I was in. I might say I regretted joining this group instead of those from the same residential college as I.
I am angry and frustrated because most of the time, I have to f#!! do all the shits.
I really do appreciate those who do their part willingly and really, if not for them, I might just give up of the assignment and really, I don't mind not getting an A for it.

Sometimes it really make me wonder if these university students really deserve to be in. I mean they are not responsible, proactive and they don't give a shit to their own part for the assignment.

They want an A but seriously. they don't deserve one. At least for most of them.

I'll tell you what I did for the entire project.
The initial plan was to call Big Apple and I did. Then there were some miscommunication between Big Apple and I, which is why the whole thing was postponed. While we were looking for other products for the project, none of them really give any promising or constructive ideas.
I managed to contact some people for Spritzer POP and all that I asked the Secretary was to type a letter. And guess what, she did not do it at all and then the time was not enough for her to type the simple letter. All she told me was I don't know. And to make it worse, she only tell me when the dateline is drawing closer like never before.
And she was like giving excuses about not able to do the business proposal because she need to type a one page letter. What a stupid ass!

I did the business proposal.
I help to get 51+ orders before the day itself.
I am the one who call back Big Apple. I am the one who ask my friends for transportation. I am also the one who get the bicycle for our delivery services.

So tell me...what the shit that these university students are doing? besides wanting to get the "A" for themselves.
Firstly, most of them will not give any suggestions and when they did, they never try to come out with some solutions as well...only telling me problems and leaving it as it is.

And now I'm going to do the slide and the presentation with another 4 people.

Honestly, I really wonder if all these students only care for their own grades. Come on...if you're smart, you'll still get an A if you are darn busy.
And probably the fact was that they are not.

Next thing that I really wanna complain is that most of the UM idiots love to just leave the water tap running. Their behaviour ain't a reflection of an undergraduate, more like some nasty, selfish ass coming out to town.

And then there were these group of idiots who kept smoking.
I just felt that they didn't realized how much they are actually killing the environment with their stupid cigarettes.

Sometimes I wonder what kind of university is this, with such residents who only think about themselves. And we are not asking them to do anything extraordinary, only doing their small parts. I seriously am disappointed with my university life, although I must admit that there are some good friends in there as well.
Nevertheless, I really do believe that this kind of experience teach me more about the real world and how much it takes to make a difference in this upside down Earth.

I know that these posting is full of words that are not so civilized but I guess the frustration within me prompted me to write out this post.

I hope for those who read this post, you will also think about your part in this Earth and stop thinking about yourself. I am angry at some of them but I felt this posting help me release those anger and hopefully, I will be able to see them eye to eye the next time I see them in university.

I'm not usually against stupid people, but honestly
stupid jerk should just GET LOST!!

Where peace begins....knowing that we are one family under GOD

the uncertainties in this world

This guy could be psychotic, a criminal and yet he probably look at the world in a more detailed perspective than many of us.

It is always difficult to go through another day without having a proper plan for most people.
It reminds me of Joker's quotation in Batman, The Dark Knight:

Do I really look like a guy with a plan? You know what I am? I'm a dog chasing cars. I wouldn't know what to do with one if I caught it. You know, I just do things. The mob has plans, the cops have plans, Gordon's got plans. You know, they're schemers. Schemers trying to control their worlds. I'm not a schemer. I try to show the schemers how pathetic their attempts to control things really are. So, when I say that you and your girlfriend was nothing personal, you know that I'm telling the truth. It's the schemers that put you where you are. You were a schemer, you had plans, and uh, look where that got you. I just did what I do best. I took your little plan and I turned it on itself. Look what I did to this city with a few drums of gas and a couple of bullets. You know what I noticed? Nobody panics when things go according to plan. Even if the plan is horrifying. If tomorrow I tell the press that like a gang banger will get shot, or a truckload of soldiers will be blown up, nobody panics, because it's all, part of the plan. But when I say that one little old mayor will die, well then everyone loses their minds!

Well, probably it took me a little longer to accept the ugliness of this world. And maybe "Joker" has seen it clearer than many of us. As insane and pathetic as this man might be, he probably has noticed that the world is corrupt. No matter how noble anyone try to be.
The ending of Dark Knight probably carries a deeper meaning than it seems.

Today we look at the newspaper we wonder who is the good guy and who really is the bad guy?
Example, no one dare to say that Barrack Obama is indeed the most suitable man to lead United States. There is so much uncertainty and I probably am one of the supporter of Obama and yet I really wonder how good is this man actually. Probably like what McCain said, "Who's the real Barrack Obama?" But then again, McCain himself is not a good candidate as well.
Let's not talk so far away...back in our home, the political situation is even more complicated. Anwar Ibrahim, Najib or Abdullah Badawi?

I like the way the Dark Knight movie ended...

Joker: I took Gotham's white knight, and brought him down to our level. It wasn't hard. Y'see, madness, as you know, is like gravity. All it takes is a little...push. ...
Harvey Dent: You either die a hero or you live long enough to see yourself become the villain.
Batman: Sometimes, truth isn't good enough, sometimes people deserve more. Sometimes people deserve to have their faith rewarded.

So, is truth more important? Is it about painting a good picture?
I was doing my business project and I realized that so many times, I have to lie to make things look nicer and better. Talking about integrity and yet I probably was doing the same thing.

I think one very important lesson as I recalled the movie, Batman (The Dark Knight) was that for us to be even thinking about making a difference, the first thing is to truly check our own "heart". Lately, I must come to acknowledge the many times I failed as a human. Fail to play my part as a living being.

I remembered the Bible teaching us to take care of this Earth....yes, take control of it and care for it but so many times, we are doing the opposite.

I felt ashame to be even writing such things in my blog because I realized the many times that I was part of the process of the "corruption and pollution of this World."
Maybe Harvey Dent was right, that either we die as a hero or we live long enough to see ourselves becoming a villain.
For to live is to die and to die is to truly live. I must look beyond material world. I must look beyond cash, comfort, and selfish kind of love.

I want to be part of the new Kingdom that the Bible preach about. And that is what is shown in the character of Batman in the movie.

Joker: You just couldn't let me go could you? This is what happens when an unstoppable force meets an immovable object. You truly are incorruptible aren't you? You won't kill me out of some misplaced sense of self-righteousness, and I won't kill you, because you're just too much fun. I think you and I are destined to do this forever.

It is not about being a hero, but being true to oneself. And that is what it takes to make a difference. The ending of Dark Knight was a sad tale for Harvey Dent.
I hope it will not be a sad tale for me.

Today if we read the Star Online, then we will know that our current Prime Minister will not be defending his post as the UMNO president. I like the way my brother told me, he look so kesian. In his statement, I do not want a divided party, nor do I want a divided government. And that he would stay on as the PM until March.

"I know I've not been doing well; it's time for someone else to take over," he said, adding that Barisan leaders have received the news well.

For those many people inside Barisan that felt extremely happy with this news, I believe it is only time that you should check your heart, whether you're not greedy for the power and reputation...which is why you felt glad for such decision.

I only wonder what is next for Malaysia...

Today, my student smsed me and asked me for guidance for her SPM examination. I really hope that she will do well. In a way, throughout my last few months being a tutor, I've seen how students who hate studying start putting in the effort for a better result as they find the fulfillment and understanding in that subject. And yes, how interest and understanding could change the perspective of one. And I hope many more will begin to look at the world and start to see the "flaws", "corruption" and "dying" values of this Earth.
Make a change....do we really care?
I was on the phone with her when I realized that OMG! I'm wasting my time but something ponder in my mind...."Do I really care?"
I knew then that I am her tutor and I should care enough to listen and give the proper guidance.

It is quite tiring preparing for the "Hari Keusahawanan 08" in UM. In a way, I felt that I am doing too much but I must really learn to thank and appreciate those who do their best as well. In a way, my expectation of people was a bit far-fetched. Anyway I learned my mistakes throughout the preparation.
My group will be selling BigApple Donut and really, I wanna thank Wai Hin for the willingness to fetch me from Midvalley to UM as I had no other means of transportation to carry the doughnuts from Midvalley to UM. Your help is much appreciated.

I really am very tired....tired because of the many uncertainties and the workload.
A lot of my friends were telling me that I should take rest and stop working.
I believe it is a matter of time that I might follow their advice...

Good night!!
