EURO 2012 : Who Will Lift The Trophy?

Not until today will only I write on Euro 2012. Living half across the world from Ukraine and Poland makes you have to get up in the middle of morning to watch every single game. I only watched a few games when the Orange, Germany and England were playing. They were my favorites. I thought either the Orange or England could win this time. And I always knew that the German had a good chance. But what a disappointment!

That’s the thing with football. You can’t expect anything which is wrote on paper will decide the game. Though the Netherlands were displaying such excellent performances but fate had never been on their side.

That went on Germany as well. What a tremendous campaign they had so far but they fumbled in the semis to the Azzuries. Yes, Italy played better. They outperformed the English boys and the Germans in their last two games. They cornered every single opponent when they entered their half. And they had good attackers as well. So scoring goals were nothing to them.

In conclusion only the best team will win. They need not only to display the best performance but also to have the best tactical, skills and quality players to outwit the opposition. After witnessing the Azzuries or the BLUES I strongly feel that they will rule the finals and win the championship to themselves. So best of luck guys.

ps- I’m not a fan of Balotelli but I think he is the man who will rip apart the defense of the Spaniards.

Overrated Portuguese


Obviously, at time like this the only channel MUST WATCH is Astro 805 – Côte d’Ivoire (Ivory Coast) vs. Portugal. Most people expect the Portuguese can easily wallop Ivory Coast but boohoo even without Drogba in the first team, Deco, Ronaldo, Carvalho, Ferriera and the gang still cannot score any goal. The game ended scoreless. Praise to the Ivorians for their impressive performance. The only thing that they missed is to score A GOAL, at least. Here are some stats (soccernet.com) about that match. I’m hoping that the North Koreans could do the same thing with the Brazilians afterwards. Some people said – cukup cukup lah tu

Tapi tadi while waiting for the game, I was browsing my old collection of mp3s. Aik 4U2C? Yup, but that was while in sekolah menengah. It’s been a while. Sesekali best jugak. All the memories flashed back. Silly moves and pick up lines to get girls. Very very very embarrassing to think ’em back. But kids will always be kids. No joke!
Anyhow, look where is AC Mizal now? AC Di Mana? AC Di Sini! He’s so successful and even has his own show. To me he’s very talented artist. He can host a program, make you LOL, jual gelang, sing (duh!) and his wife is goddamn beautiful.

Guess people change and so do we… KAN KAN!!!
Get back to the songs collection. Wah Man Bai – Sebenarnya… I really love this song especially the guitar part!!! and the wording as well. I first heard it when a friend of mine showed this one video recorded at a Malaysian Night or somethin’ at RPI at Albany (if not mistaken). Those Malaysian students performed it. I tried to look for the video, alamak it must be in my old hard disk. So lazy to go and get it. Anyway, I managed to get this from the wonders of the internet :-
Even he now has become ‘Tun Hussein Onn‘ in 1957:Hati Malaya. Mantaplah lu Man Bai!!!
Talking about movie, remember Almost Famous? Kate Hudson? That’s in my ALL TIME FAVORITE movies. Two thumbs up. Other than hot sexy Kate, the song Tiny Dancer by Elton John really moves me. Nothing more to say but enjoy the video clip and if you are a rock n roll hunk, definitely you wanna watch it again (this movie reminds me the good old time in the States).
