AC Milan 2-1 Liverpool
Liverpool lost, n I'm immensely heartbroken. They played well but failed to score enough. I love you guys eventhough you failed to bring the 6th European Cup back home to Merseyside. Let me go to sleep while my heart mends itself.
YOU'LL NEVER WALK ALONE

Once again, another familiar on screen name. If u're not familiar with him, then either u're born too late or a girl or juz an Ah Gua. Who don't remember John Rambo, the famous "One Man Army" of the 80s, played by who else but Sylvester Stallone. The trademark topless well muscled n oiled body, long curly n normally wet hair, plus the piece of cloth tied round his head; dat's Rambo. I was a kid then in the 80s, n i didn't really understand what the movies were all abt except for the crazy gun fights n explosion. Rambo gave me an impression dat he's indestructible. One bullet in his body? No sweat, juz wrap the wound tight with a cloth n carry on fighting. Haha, I actually think it's possible. Thank god there's no guns in Singapore.
N who would have thought Rambo would have a 4th installment after the 3rd n last part screened in 1988. Juz like Rocky Balboa(Rocky 6), I was amazed but yet skeptical abt Stallone's physique to act in a physical demanding movie like Rambo. I'm not sure what's waiting for me, but one thing's for sure, I'm gonna catch it. Stallone at 60, there's no stopping this man.

Rambo II:First Blood Part2 (1985) AGE 39
Rambo III (1988) AGE 42

End of 2006/07
Finally, the English league season has ended with the FA Cup last night when Chelsea and Manchester United battle it out in the newly built Wembley Stadium. Last week's relegation battle was so intense dat it got me glued to the TV n internet for a good 2hrs. Of cos I would want West Ham United to stay up cos they're the most talented side among the 3 teams consisting of Sheffield United, Wigan n themselves. The problem was they're facing the new England Champion in Manchester United in the final day of the EPL. West Ham has been wrangled with troubles off n on the pitch the whole season.
First, they slump to a low point when they kept losing matches at the start of the season. It's quite unthinkable that they could lose matches with the same set of players dat almost won the FA Cup last season, until Steven Gerrard banged in a last minute equalizer n Liverpool eventually won on penalties. Some said the Final destroyed West Ham, causing them to under-perform this season. Well, I agree to this statement to some extent.
Things got worse when the English FA probe into their controversial purchases of Carlos Tevez n Javier Mascherano(now in Liverpool). The thorough investigation led to a maximum fine of 5.5million pounds(S$16.5m). Mind u, dat's a hell lot of money for a fine, but West Ham will gladly take it cos they would rather not get their points deducted, which will prove costly in the relegation battle. The fine caused an uproar among other bottom clubs n they were set on an appeal for points deduction n detest on why West Ham were still able to play Carlos Tevez despite of being found guilty of rules infringement.
The sole reason why West Ham managed to survive the drop has to go down to the Argentine. West Ham sacked Alan Pardew 3/4 through the season n took in Alan Curbishley as their manager, hoping he could do a miracle n prevent the club from the drop. Hopes were high when Curbishley managed an incredible victory over Manchester United at Upton Park in only his 2nd match in charge. It was his first victory over the Red Devils ever having failed to win them after a decade of management in Charlton Athletic.
However, subsequent results weren't as good n the situation looks gloomy. Then towards the end of the campaign, one man stood up made himself a West Ham hero. His name is Carlos Tevez. He had failed to shine all season until probably the last 10 matches for West Ham. This man came to England with a huge reputation as a powerful forward for both club n country. But this performance was found lacklustre when thrusted into the English game. And how he chose to pick up his form at the right moment. When West Ham needed a strong character to avoid the drop, he showed up. 7 wins in last 10 matches, with Tevez scoring an incredible 7 goals in them. West Ham hauled themselves out of the drop zone. Tevez became an instant hit with the fans n his name could be heard from the chantings in the stands.
Call it fate, West Ham survived n beaten Man Utd 1-0, with Tevez scoring the only goal in the 45th minute. Sheffield United got relegated in the end, along with Watford n Charlton. The battle oso brought the resignation of both Paul Jewell n Neill Warnock of Wigan n Sheffied Utd respectively. It'll be exciting to see how Curbishley will build up the West Ham team n make them qualify for Europe next year. One man dat will leave for sure is Carlos Tevez. He doesn't belong there. Barcelona, Real Madrid, Juventus, Milan etc etc is where he belongs. He needs to play European football in the form of the UEFA Champions League or UEFA Cup, not scraping around in West Ham. Now, the only match left to watch this season will be the Champions League Final in Athens on 23rd May, Liverpool VS AC Milan.

Tomorrow will be the day i return my trial N95 back to HWZcorp. Hai.. How sad, I really love this phone, there's no other phone comparable to it. It's multimedia features are awesome to say the least. It's such an attention puller that everytime i flash it on the MRT, people beside me will always peek over to have a look at the double sliding mechanism. Now I'm going to write a testimonial for it n hope for the best. To win it will be the best thing to happen.
Below are the photos taken using the 5MP Carl Zeiss Tessar Lens camera of the N95
Mothers' Day, went airport for ice-cream

S'pore to host F1
By STI reporter, Sanjay Nanwani
IT'S confirmed - F1 is coming to Singapore.
This was announced at a joint media briefing chaired by the Trade and Industry Ministry, the Singapore Tourism Board and local tycoon Ong Beng Seng.
The Singapore Grand Prix will be held next year.
Singapore has been abuzz with talks of hosting the annual series since F1 supremo Bernie Ecclestone met with hotelier Ong Beng Seng to discuss the possibility of holding a street race to be held at night.
There will be minor changes to race circuit but it will still be held in the Marina Bay and Suntec area.
Earlier reports had said the route will ply a 5km street circuit running through icons like the Esplanade and will be the world's first night race.
The route is designed by famed track designer Hermann Tilke.
On the to-do list now: Resurfacing and widening of roads along the race circuit, remodelling of kerbs and the installation of fences and crash barriers.
While there are 17 races in this year's F1 calendar, observers expect 20 next year.
Finally, my dream of watching F1 in Singapore has come true.... This is so exciting!!! I can't wait to hear the ultimate engine "music" coming from the F1 cars.. Gosh, Singapore will host the first ever night F1 race too... Haha... Do the F1 teams scout for talents here? Can i go for their trials? Speed SpeeD SPEED!!
Ah... My lovely Ferrari
But MOST impt of all, will there be any racequeens? I'm so looking forward to 2008!!
It's finally here!!! I won a 1-week trial from an internet competition stating why i should be chosen to be a trial user for the new N95 within 80 words. Haha, this is really unbelievable. To be chosen from hundreds of entries, I can count myself damn bloody lucky. I'll get a chance to win it though, that is if my testimonial for the phone is chosen to be the model too.. Of cos, my aim is to win it!! It's obvious that i'll never buy a phone that costs $1200+ like the N95, it's too extravagant. So right now I'll enjoy the functions of it, especially the GPS system when i drive n the wifi function to surf net outdoors on the move! But now i have to wait for the 8-hour battery charge to be completed. SLOW.......
I had to go to BV for the collection.. N i tot i dun haf to come to this place for a gd 3 months during my sch holidays
Here's the building
Sealed brand new.... How cool..
Leather cover.. Nseries
It's a shame i'll only have it for one week.... I luv it....

HOT HOT HOT
Sheesh... The weather has been bloody hot for these few days, n I'm badly sunburnt cos i went cycling from 12noon-4pm 2 days ago at ECP. The lack of a job plus nothing to do at home made me go out n battle it out with the sun, which obviously i lost. I'm now in so much pain that even little movements hurt like shit. When will i get a call asking me to report for work?! Money........
Some overdue photos
This is wad MQ did to me when she was bored when i was sleeping...
