KianHin after recovery...

Finally recover from allergy. Haha!! Well, I couldn't believe my luck....went to KL with Addie and ate the wrong food...ended up with allergy that eventually spoiled my few days break...hehe!! (luckily I have about 2 months of holiday)

Well, today went for breakfast with mother and sister in McD at town.
Forgot to take camera to capture the snapshot of the moment. Anyway, I managed to finish 3 articles in McD...took me about 30 minutes plus.
After that, we went to settle the Celcom bill...(no more Celcom, time for Digi Internet...)
Well, I had lunch at home...

Guess what I had...


Now that I'm full, time for continuing my work...will need to clean and pack my room later...

Unconvincing display from football giants during friendlies...

Just as the World Cup is drawing closer and coaches are going to make their final decision on the club squad, we are seeing a very unconvincing displays by football giants.

England needed two own goals from Japan to win 2-1 in a game that shows how far the dream of winning the World Cup from reality is. On the other hand, France was held to 1-1 draw against Tunisia. Paraguay and Ivory Coast were at 2-2.

Spain win 3-2 unconvincingly and the teams were labelled as "lazy" by their own coach.

This is definitely not a good sign for some of these European giants as the clock ticks closer to the kickoff to World Cup 2010!!

Just watched Prince of Persia

the tickets for the movie

Just watched Prince of Persia with my family (excluding Chiew Lian, she needs to study for ACCA) and YenLeng.
Well, one thing that will always remained clear to me throughout the movie was that there was a lot of jumping scenes that are really cool! As usual, Disney movie...predictable and a happy ending but I still love how the fighting scenes and the how show progress.
For those of you who have yet to watch Prince of Persia, the movie started with how Prince Dastan was being adopted into the royal family of the Persia empire. The reason why a King will want to adopt someone into the noble family is simply because of his action, his willingness to do what is right despite of him going against someone who is more powerful than him.

Although his blood was not royal, his character was noble.
"Prince of Persia".

Well, after that, the movie fast forward to the time when Prince Dastan and his brothers are grown up. They attacked Alamut, of which unreliable intel says it’s harboring weapons of mass destruction. Again predictably, that too is a lie for all there is in the city is a gorgeous princess, Tamina, who is the guardian of a magic Dagger, which can turn back time by just one minute by releasing some of the Sand of Time. The Dagger is also the only object that can break a huge glass-like vessel underneath Alamut, which contains enough of this mythical Sand to swipe everything on Earth and bring it back to Big Bang. Understandably, all villains want the Dagger and will stop at nothing to get it, which sets the two unlike allies, Dastan and Tamina, on a terrific journey through the desert, which is as fun as it is apparently lacking real substance.

It is also interesting to see how the love relationship develop between the two main characters in the movie although I couldn't agree when they all said about the beauty of the Princess.

Well, if you are the type who like fantasy and adventure, this movie is for you. The casts of the movie have done an excellent job.

I watched the movie with YenLeng and my family...hehe!! played with PSP before that but was suck at the Fifa World Cup. Was happy to be out after sick for some time due to allergy....

Torres back into training and more...

Liverpool star, Fernando Torres is back into training with the Spain squad and this is definitely looking good for the team.

This is definitely a good news for Spain who is going to take the risk by including Torres in the World Cup Squad.
On the other hand, a bad news for the Ghana team as Essien has been ruled out from the WOrld Cup due to injury.

Well, we have seen the last friendly and warm up matches towards the World Cup.
Portugal and France are not doing well, with France only managed a 2-1 win. On the other hand, Portugal could not find a goal and the game ended 0-0.
Portugal must be still seeking for the right way to gel so that Ronaldo could shine during the World Cup.
The English continue their winning form although Fabio Capello has slammed his players for the lack of passion and rhythm in the midfield.
Germany score 24 goals against amateur players and it must be a great way for the players to gain confidence for the coming World Cup. Argentina is showing sign of revival as well.

Back to Jose Mourinho, the coach who left Inter Milan for Real Madrid has claimed that there is no love lost between him and the Italian club although he was never happy with the Italian press.

May 27, 2010

Inter wins and now Mourinho is moving to Real Madrid

Well, just as many predicted and expected. Inter Milan win the Champions League in style. A nice and strong defence followed by a quick and effective counter attack, the Italian club win the Champions League and become the first team to win a unique treble...the Scudetto, the Italian Cup and the Champions League.

And a warning must have been sent to all the other that Mourinho is in Real Madrid, he must be on his move to make his choices on the transfer market, and he must have notice United's Rooney's growth as well as Torres and many others in the English Premier League.

However, the focus must now be turn to the Word Cup with less than 20 days away.
More updates will be on here!!

A real frustration with HTC TyTn ii

Now first of all, I know that it is probably outdated to be talking about HTC TyTn ii now that the latest HTC Evo 4G is emerging. Well, just to let those of you guys who are changing new phones all the is great to be doing gadgets, tech and all that are real cool. But there is always this problem. If you keep changing phones, you are actually contributing to the pollution of the environment. (I'll be starting a blog on this soon enough)

Well, saying that doesn't mean I won't change a new smartphone but let us learn to appreciate and make full use of our phones.

Well, I'm having a hard time trying to use my sis' HTC TyTn ii. I'm still using my HTC P3600i which is my love. Although the specification of these phones are not as great as iPhone, HTC Desire, Nexus One and others, with the right applications, my phone is pretty useful for everything.

Anyway, back to HTC TyTn ii. To be honest, I'm at the point of giving up. (as I suspect that the issue with the phone is hardware, and my sis phone no longer under warranty.)
I tried flashing the ROM again with the official update from the HTC page and I even asked around people in the forum.
But none of them actually solve the problems with the phone. The HTC TyTn ii has been freezing and even crash at times. This happened almost everyday. I even find it difficult to be using the SMS function.

I'll give myself another week with the phone and if it really still don't work, I might consider giving up on this project and recycle the phone instead.
Just feel the need to release the frustration...signing off now!!

Sir Alex not selling Berbatov...and many other stories...

It is probably quite a surprising news to all Manchester United fans, including me.
Sir Alex Ferguson is not going to sell Berbatov. With an unimpressive seasons during the last 2 years, many people have given up on the falling star and a lot of speculation suggest that Berbatov is on his way out but United coach insist that the Bulgaria star will stay with the Red Devils.

Although the United hierachy might insist that funds are available for Alex Ferguson to use but the coach insist that there will only be one more additional star and so far, there is no spectacular signing by the English giant.

On the other hand, Barcelona has managed to buy Villa from Valencia and is targeting Fabregas. Reports are suggesting that this could be it for the Gunners star and Arsene Wenger might need to look for a suitable and well established replacement if Arsenal is to challenge for the title next
season given that they were 11 points behind Chelsea this season.

On the other hand, out of favour Ben Foster is calling for the fans backing for the club instead of a continuous protest towards the Glazer family, which eventually could do more harm to the Red Devils than the other way round. It is interesting to see how the fans respond to the English goalkeeper.

Another interesting news is that Avram Grant has agrees a deal with West Ham United. Since the coach has ditched Portsmouth who is struggling to recover from the club financial crisis.

Well, the Champions League Final is another match that will be full of excitement given that both the coach from Bayern Munich and Inter Milan might be the third coach to win the Champions League twice with two different clubs.
So, stay tune for more updates here...

Just buy a new PSP

Well, I have bought myself a new PSP. Not really for me, but it's a gift for YenLeng.
But before I gave it to YenLeng, I already played with it...Test try...

This is the PSP when I first got it....

Since the only game that I love to play is FIFA 2010, I test try the game on the PSP.
I use the Manchester United team and it was an interesting game...I played against Tottenham and yup, I win....wakakaka!!

Well, I love to play the PSP honestly especially the FIFA 2010 but I guess it's time to give it to YenLeng. I hope that she love the game as much as I do although I believe she'll prefer other games. So my next task will probably be to look for PSP games online....

Just come back from KL

Just got back from KL.
It was quite a busy schedule during the stay there.

I am glad to be able to back home...hopefully, I'll be able to update my blog more consistently...

My new shoe, Nike Mercurial

Just the other day when I went out with my family, I saw the Nike Mercurial.
I was always a fan of Cristiano Ronaldo although I must admit I kinda hate it when he left Manchester United for Real Madrid.
Nevertheless, I still like the shoe.
Here is the snapshot of the Nike Mercurial!!

Happily presenting to you the Nike Mercurial....

Have a closer look...

Yen Leng and Tuck Yuan's bday

I always believe that in a relationship, there need to be more than just 2 person loving one another. That love needs to be beyond that. That love needs to reach out to others. I cannot said that I am doing anything big to help people but I believe a joint celebration with friends are good. That is why this year, instead of going on a date with YenLeng on her birthday, we decided to celebrate with our friends, since one of our classmate has the same birthday as her. (Tuck Yuan)

Well, we did not do anything particular special. We just go and celebrate together at Pappa Rich. It was fun to be meeting up again and there is a lot of catch up to do.
Well, here are the some of the snapshots on that night.

this is the birthday girl looking for the right food...

Teik Tzuan and Carey

I can't believe the girls take snapshots of themselves in the toilet...gross!!

some of the drinks..

the three beauties...ahem!! (haha!!)

and this is me playing with the camera...

There are more snapshots and those of you who know me could easily find it from Facebook.
Well, going for the birthday celebration together with some of these close buddies brings back wonderful memories to me.
I remembered the joy of organizing birthday celebration for people in the cell group and how there seem to be a big family together all the time.
Well, hopefully more of these would come and maybe I'll learn to give more of my time for things like this...just maybe...

Fulham gave a good fight but not good enough

Fulham did exeptionally well to go into the final of the UEFA Cup but at times, you must be good enough to go all the way to win. They gave a good fight but Atletico Madrid won it eventually with Diego Forland 116th minute goal.

Forlan had given the Spanish side the lead before Simon Davies equalised soon after.
The game appeared to be on its' way to the penalty before the former Manchester United forward scored the winner.

"I couldn't in my wildest dreams imagine we would get here when we started,'' Hodgson admitted. "But unfortunately that doesn't help. Having been here and acquitted ourselves so well, you feel we could have taken a further step.

Goalscorer Davies admitted he might appreciate the enormity of the team's achievements once defeat has sunk in but it was still too raw immediately after the game.

He said: "Getting so close to penalties we were hanging on a little bit. We were hanging on and looking to try our luck there. It's a shame to get so close but once we get home after a few days we'll feel like we achieved something but now it is very painful.

After scoring an extra-time winner against Liverpool in the semi-final as well, Forlan has certainly had a lot of fun at England's expense in the competition.

"I don't know whether people in England are looking at me in a different way, but I am playing well and I am enjoying it,'' said Forlan, who will be part of the Uruguay squad at this summer's World Cup. "Manchester United were a really good team, with great players, but it was difficult for me to play.

"I spoke to Sir Alex and told him that I wanted to leave to try and get regular football. That is why I am so happy at Atletico. We are bringing a title back to Spain. Hopefully tomorrow we can dress Madrid in red.''

This is football and we have definitely see a great run by the Fulham players. Nothing to be ashamed of even though they lost at the final.

Chelsea wants to win a double

The Blues have won the EPL for this season on the last game of the season. Coincidentally, it was on the same weekend as the Mother's Day. Guess the mothers must be supporting the Blues as they thrash Wigan 8 goals to nil. Well, Chelsea is the English champion this season...
And now that they win it, they want to win the FA Cup as well. It will be an advantage for Chelsea given that Portsmouth season has been full of money and financial crisis.
However, football has always been a game full of twist and turn. You will never know who will win it until the game is over at the 90 minutes.
Hopefully, we'll be able to see an exciting game during the final.

Mother's Day

Well, every year, we celebrate Mother's Day. Although I know that the celebration becomes more like a routine with annual celebration, I think it is important. Firstly, it is because it is the time of the year to appreciate what your mother has done for you. I think it is important to at least buy your mom dinner or buy some simple gift. It is something that you showed to your mom that you care. And that is what my siblings and I do on Mother's Day each year.

This year, we went to BlackCanyon for dinner on Saturday as a simple celebration. Then, on the actual day itself, we take away Pizza and eat at home as a family, served with a white wine. I know it probably doesn't match. Pizza and white wine....but what the heck!! It is about the time spent together that matters.

I had a great time with my siblings and my parents. Yen Leng joined us on Saturday but did not join us on Sunday as she thought it was important for her to stay with her family on that night. I think it is important too. But then again, we still managed to celebrate together on Saturday night. Before the dinner, we went for the Iron Man 2 movie. Initially, I asked my entire family to watch together but then my parents was not into the idea for the movie. So, we went for dinner instead. (still had a great time!!)

Here are some of the snapshots on Sunday. (the Saturday photo will be posted some other time later...cause the photos are in YenLeng's phone.)

the white wine we had..

the real competition in the mobile world

We have heard a lot about the iphone for the past few years. Of course, it is a normal scenario given the fact that Apple products have always manage to give us surprises and the WOW! factor.
But then just as the Apple Iphone seems to be without any competitor, we have the Droid phone coming out....Google of course is at the right track.
This then leave Microsoft helpless with their old, dull and boring Windows mobile 6.5. I mean...what the heck!! the upgrade was nothing much and people hate it.
It was then that the announcement of the Windows Phone 7 being made at the WMC, World Mobile Congress. Just as Windows 7 was a hit, the WP7 seems to be on the right track as well. The WOW! factor is back....and people are starting to talk about Microsoft getting serious in the smartphone industry.
Then it was not long after that we heard about Iphone 4G and people are starting to be amazed again...although I don't see too much a difference. (forget me for being bias here) and let us not forget about iPad...the name might be quite sissy but the sales that just hit 1 million is telling us a different story.
Well, the real competition in the mobile is beginning. We are seeing a lot of major changes.
The money that you pay for your smartphone will be worthy of its' values.
For those of you who think that 2010 is awesome with all these announcements, I can tell you, 2011 brings you even more excitement.

Chelsea is the new EPL champion

Well, let's be honest.
I am a Manchester United fan and I hate the fact that Chelsea won the EPL this season. However, I must said that a win is a win. They have played the entire season with discipline. Good defence as well as good attacking forward options. A lot of good characteristics shown by the Blues especially in their final game...8-0 the score against Wigan. Something that not many people expect to see but then again, Chelsea has been really good this season especially when they are on form.
No doubt about that, the entire Chelsea squad will enjoy this season much better than the rest. United, must have been cursing the fact that they lost 2 quality forward, Cristiano Ronaldo and Tevez while keeping one who has failed to perform. Sir Alex Ferguson might not admit it but most likely, he will feel that money used to buy Berbatov might worth more if he used it to keep Tevez instead. Berbatov might just be on his way out of Old Trafford given his performance for the season.
Well, the English Premier League has been full of a lot of twist and turn, with Arsenal, Chelsea and Manchester United all three fighting for the title until the final few games before Arsenal eventually fade off. The Red Devils have shown a lot of good characteristic as well but probably the game against Bayern Munich prove to be too costly for them.
On the other hand, Chelsea might have benefited from the early exit when they lost to Inter Milan.
It is also great to see teams that are emerging into the top 4 with Tottenham at the 4th place this season and also Manchester City. Everton and Aston Villa are also a constant threat even when they play against Manchester United, Chelsea, Arsenal as well as Liverpool. Liverpool had one of their worst season and it must have cost the fans to think about the prospect of even losing out to Aston Villa and Everton.
well, now that the EPL is over, let's turn our attention to La Liga where two giants are fighting for the first spot...both Barcelona and Real Madrid are on form at the moment. Real would need Barcelona to slip up while Barcelona might need Messi to continue his magic to make sure they clinch the title for this season after losing to Inter Milan in the Champions League semi-final.
There is also the Bundesliga to watch with Bayern Munich proving to have buy a magic and worthy player, Robben as they are on course for a treble.
Just as their opponent in the Champions League final is on course for the treble, Inter Milan under the Special One, Mourinho is also going after the treble. They are at the top of the table in the Serie A at the moment and they have won the Italian Cup.
Well, there is still a lot of excitement to watch before the end of the season.
And let us not forget about the upcoming World Cup, which promises a lot of excitement.
It will definitely worth the money for you to watch all these exciting matches.

There are expectations to meet

There are times that YenLeng would smsed me, asking me "Why am I still busy despite being on holiday?"
Well, just in case if you are wondering if she meant I do not have enough time spend with her, I want to clarify that was not her meaning. What she felt was that I probably do not have enough time to rest. Well, that is normal because most people who are close to me would ask me the same thing. I mean after all, what is a university student who is supposedly to be on holiday doing every night right up til 2 to 3 am and waking up at 7 or 8 am every single day

There are things that I will not mention in my blog.
However, I just can said that there are certain expectations that I must meet. and I will be able to do that. At times, the road can be tough, tiring and even full of uncertainties.
But I know I am going to move forward...and be better each time...
As for now, I am blogging from McD...signing off now to send my brother to get his passport later...
