January 2012


I just realized that I only post about football when there’s a big match! Hehehe… No, I’m not that kind of person! The kind that only watches big matches and whined if we lost. I watch every Spurs match, okay. Except maybe against Shamrock Rovers in the Europa League. That’s because there’s no coverage on the match. Not even in other countries, I can’t even stream live from the internet, I just relied on LIVE Updates (Soccernet, nothing else)

But… I didn’t watch the 4th round of FA Cup, Watford vs Tottenham Hotspur this morning. Solely because I was sooooo sleepy. :( I slept at 1.30 am and woke up at 3.30 am (the game was at 3.45 am) . I checked my twitter on my iPod and see the line-up on @SpursOfficial and thought, “hmm, strong line-up!” Then I proceed to sleep. :<

I woke up at 8.00 am and read the actions from the game on @SpursOfficial. We won, yes, but the few Spurs fans I followed on twitter said it was a very sloppy and disappointing performance by Tottenham. Glad I didn’t watch it. xD

But there we go, onwards to the fifth round of FA Cup! FA Cup! FA Cup! :D

I still remember the fourth round of our FA Cup campaign last season. ._____. We lost 4-0 against an inspired Fulham. Oh god, the agony. Here’s the post I made about that match. >,< Anyway, focus on Wigan! I’m not gonna miss that one, Wednesday morning (Malaysia time) MOM! I’M NOT GONNA MISS THIS GAME! DON’T STOP ME FROM WATCHING IT AT 3.45 AM IN THE MORNING, OKAY? :> Oh wait, my mom’s not at home on that day. :(

I’ve already forgotten the Man City match. What? Balotelli? Who’s that? What did he do? And Lescott? He’s that Everton player right? Oh, no? Oh he went to Man City? FOR MONEY? When did that happened?Lalala~ Ignorance is bliss.

You know, this is the problem. Every time I talk about football, I drift off from the main subject. I’m pretty sure I was talking about Wigan just now. -____-”

Right, right. Big game. Every game from now on is big. Chelsea are closing on us. We can’t afford to slip up. Not now, anyway. The Transfer window is closing. Harry, Mr. Levy, DO SOMETHING.

School holidays are ending soon. I went to Amcorp Mall today. And bought these:

April, June and October Issues 2011. Just RM9.90 each . *O* They are reissued magazines, of course they’re cheap. Probably one of the best days of my life, lalala~

THE END.

(Long opinion about the Man City vs Spurs game. I love talking about football.)

Joleon Lescott, a couple of days before Man City vs Spurs,”Tottenham are not a threat”. How ironic. I guess you have to play dirty to beat a non-threatening team? Is that the City way?

Lescott elbowed Kaboul just outside the penalty area. No cards were given. Balotelli stomped on Scott Parker (Some people said he “lost his balance” but I’m not buying it. 100% intentional in my biased opinion) No cards either.

Hmm…. I don’t think Howard Webb is a Man United fan now. Maybe he switched to Man City now? Or maybe he supports both of those Mancunians? Hahaha, okay enough bitching about refs. They’ve got a tough job, blah3x whatever. I don’t care anymore.

The penalty at the end…. It’s like a dagger to the heart. I just watched the replay of the game, I already knew it’s going to happen, but it still hurts. Especially because it’s Balotelli. It’s always Balotelli. Everything’s Balotelli. Blah3x. I’m so sick of him.

Also… I want to punch Nasri’s face when he scored that goal. Just like when he scored for Arsenal against Spurs last year (we still won, don’t worry :p ) His face showed a lot of arrogance. Really, how annoying can his face get?

But still… A lot of positives can be found in that game. Still 3rd, 5 points clear of 4th and more importantly, 10 points ahead of fifth placed Ars*nal. Feels good, yeah. >:) Also positive, how Spurs surged into life after conceding 2 goals. It’s like we were sleeping, and the Man Shitty goals were alarm clocks. Haha. Defoe did decently filling up for the absence of Adebayor. Bale was superb. Overrated? That’s Walcott for you, not Bale. :)

Ledley King… I don’t think people can blame him, really. If you said Ledley was the reason Spurs lost, then you’re stupid. If you’re a Spurs fan and you still blame Ledley for the lost, then you’re not a fan of Spurs. Easy, right? Anyway, here’s an interesting stat for you:

Spurs without Ledley King: LDDDWDDLDLLLWWLWD.
Spurs with Ledley King: WWWWWWWWDWWWWWD.

Might add an “L” at the end, but this was before the Man Shitty game. Anyway, when I saw Ledley’s face when he conceded the penalty, I just want to hug him. He knew he made a big mistake that could cost the game (and it had). But overall performance, he’s done well.

After the final whistle was heard… The devastated faces of the Spurs players.. It almost made me cry, LOL. I’m an emotional wreck, I know. :p They know they could have just win the game. Or at least a draw. A lost was just agonizing. A lost at the dying minutes was just too cruel to put to words.

But don’t lose faith. Never give up. They’re writing us off of this title race, but that’s fine. We don’t need the pressure. We don’t need the huge amount of expectations. We’re just enjoying our football like we always did for the last couple of years.

Tottenham Hotspur: Will seriously damage your heart and delight you. (:

“It’s easier to support and love your club if you accept the truth and embrace it.”

And that marks the end of my never-ending ramble. I’m calmed now. (:

Special mentions: Spurs fans at the stadium. What can I say? Outstanding. The “O When the Spurs Go Marching In” song was sung at least 4 times in the second half. Spurs fans are the most awesome fans in the Premier League in my, again, biased opinion. :P

And again, I’m not really an expert on these football-talking stuff… If you want some more in depth discussions, here’s some of it (Spurs blogs, of course):

Dear Mr Levy.

Audere Est Facere.

THE END.

The Legend of the Guardians: The Owls of Ga’Hoole 

This movie is too beautiful, I almost forgot the storyline. It’s not the best storyline they can come up with, that’s for sure. It’s quite predictable. The director focused heavily on the graphics and 3D effects in the movie.

It’s a shame I didn’t get to see it in 3D, otherwise I would really enjoy all the close-up and blah3x in the movie. I did watch it in HD though. Yes, it’s pretty.

Personally, I think it’s just a mediocre movie with fancy graphics. I just like Jim Sturgess (Soren), hehehe… And owls. I love owls.

Rating: ★★★☆☆ Kids would love it.

THE END.

This year’s English classes are so confusing. It is usually lifeless and boring but at the same time there will always be some amusing and interesting anecdotes going on.

Like yesterday for example, we were filling in the PMR registration form (or something like that). Most of my classmates got the photocopy of their respective ICs that the teacher has kept all this while. We need it to feel some infos (name, IC number etc.) on the form. Still following me? Don’t worry, you don’t need to know this.

So, I didn’t get the copy of my IC. The teacher was like “OH YEAH, some teacher told me you were changing SCHOOLS, so I’ve put the copy of your IC in your student file. Ready to give it back to you for your new school!”, And I was like, “LOL!”

I’ve never told anyone that I want to go to other schools. Heck, I didn’t even post anything about it on Facebook! :p (obligatory Facebook joke here)

On a side note, some friends praised my blog and how I use my English. I guess writing that post about the new class increased my blog readers. Or whatever you like to call them. And they supported my post 100%. :P

 
P.S: In case anyone is wondering, I still love Vincent Van Gogh.
 “what.”

THE END.

This is my first ever movie review. I hope you like it. :)

Rare Exports: A Christmas Tale (click on the picture to watch the trailer)

First of all, I really think that this is a very unique movie. Simply because it’s a Finnish film and not some overrated American film. Just kidding. Actually, this movie is somewhat exceptional because it shows the real DARK side of Santa Claus who doesn’t actually reward nice kids but instead punish the naughty ones.

Personally, I really like this movie. The settings, the characters, and I don’t know why, but I’ve always loved foreign language. I just realized that there aren’t much characters in this movie, but they successfully made the best of it. And it eventually turned out to be an amazing, unique low-budget film.

And also, I love the ending. Such a great ending it was!

Rating: ★★★★½
I recommend that anyone who thinks he/she is a hipster should watch this movie, hahaha. :P

THE END.
