Football & other stuff

My beloved Liverpool have won 3 games in a row, the latest being a nerve wrecking 2nd half experience against the mighty Galatasaray of Turkey. Despite leading 3-0 at one point, the Reds again nearly blew it by some piss poor defending. Luckily we managed to hang on for the win. Must do better next time. Finnan is no good in the air. And neither is Aurelio.

But the Reds have been improving, I must say. Wins against Newcastle & Tottenham probably gave the well needed injection of confidence to the side, and the marked improvement showed so obviously during the first half against Galatasaray as Liverpool were intent on getting an early lead.

Anyways, it was really nice to see good old Danny Murphy back at Anfield, albeit in a Spurs shirt. I thought he played well the other day, and deserved the applause & cheers as he was substituted late in the game. He's not the most talented individual but his commitment to the team was never in question. I've got a soft spot for Murphy and I wish him well at Tottenham.

On another note, I'm back in good terms (I think) with one of my long lost friends. It's not that there was any "bad" terms or anything like that, it's just that we ended up growing apart and left things being really awkward a few years back. But a chance encounter during work had us talking to each other again, and suddenly, to me at least, whatever happened in the past was gone. I guess we just grew up wiser and decided to ignore the foolishness of our past. We began to remember how well we "clicked" and just hit it off straight away. I'm glad that we managed to bump into one another. It feels much better now.


It's a Sunday.

It's a Sunday but I don't feel well. AND I have to work. Shit.


10 Things I Hate About You

I like Julia Stiles in 10 Things I Hate About You.


What the...

3-0. Three fucking nil. What the hell.
It's been a while since we've been humiliated in this manner and to make matters worse, it was at Everton.
I was so disgusted with the Reds' performance that I stopped watching the game by half time.
It's time to drop the frustratingly out of sorts Alonso, and to never ever play Garcia again.

I'll be away for my vacation starting tomorrow. So that should be fun.
And for the next 2 weeks starting Wednesday I'll be back at work. Probably minimum updates to this site during that period. But anyways, feel free to post a comment. Or if you want to belanja me makan you can also post a note in the comments section. Or if you want to introduce someone cute to me, you are most welcomed to do that too. Ahah.


Cerita Melayu

Once in a while, I watch drama Melayu on TV1. Why? Because I'm not a snob who thinks he's too good to watch Malay dramas, plus I don't think I "look stupid when I speak Malay".



Today, for me, was one of those rare days where you seem to bump into people that you know wherever you go.
I just can't seem to not see people that I know today. It's too good to be true. I met my ex-colleagues, transferred ex-housemates, long lost friends, my old boss & even my schoolfriends. All in one day! Wow. It felt really nice.

On another completely different note however, is this piece of observation:

If you manage to pick up a girl at a bar, she's probably a GRO.

And to tell you the truth, I'm intimidated by GROs, really. Sure, it sounds wussy and I'll get ridiculed as fuck if I admit this to my mates, but honestly, I find GROs scary and frightening(!). They always have too much make-up on, most likely to be drunk and/or high on drugs, slutty and horny. A combination of all, on several occasions, had made me feel uncomfortable. And I'm not too keen on being uncomfortable. It's not a good feeling.


Whatever happened to..?

Whatever happened to Anthony Le Tallec?? Once rated as the one of the most promising talent in the world, Le Tallec nowadays can only find himself rotting in the Liverpool reserves.Which is sad because I had high hopes on Tony Le T. And probably, so did the bloke I saw wearing a Liverpool shirt with Le Tallec printed on the back.

Mind you, I saw this bloke a couple of years back at the mamak during a Liverpool game, in the Houllier era. That was the time when Le Tallec was expected to provide some magical touches to our forward line. It's always fascinating how fans eagerly anticipate and have impossibly
high expectations whenever someone with considerable talent and a certain reputation joins their club. These expectations would escalate to an even higher degree if the player is young, and in this case poor 'ol Tony Le T was only about 17 - 18 when he joined the Reds. He played a couple of games, scored maybe a few goals, showed flashes of brilliance but never played in the playmaker/Sheringham role which I've always imagined he'd play. And then it all went downhill. Fast. He's still around, but I doubt he'll ever realise his potential anytime soon. Yet another talent wasted.

Tony Le T, enigma with a ridiculous hairstyle to boot!

I wonder whatever happened to the bloke's shirt? Is he still wearing it to the mamak when there's a Liverpool game?

And... on another totally different note, I wonder what ever happened to mIRC? Is anyone still using it? I remember those days where I killed my time at night chatting with random people using mIRC. Phrases like a/s/l were the common language. Haha. I smile everytime I remember those days.

Remember this?

And just for fun, I tried using Yahoo Chat last night, which is probably the closest to mIRC these days. I'm sure someone out there still uses mIRC but I didn't have the program on my laptop, and I couldn't be bothered to download it so I figured Yahoo Chat should be an able replacement. And I tried chatting with random people, and they still use a/s/l !!! But I'm surprised at how many scam sex webcam messages I get within minutes of logging on to the chatroom. I guess chatting days are gone, people are all for websex or something.

Ahh, I miss the old days.
