searching the extrodinary in something ordinary

Am i glad i caught portugal vs nederlands game or what. Rather amusing game and the most exciting one so far in terms of ruckus during games probably. so many yellow cards and 4 red cards leaving the game to a 9 on 9 one. Its just absolutely crazy. And a few fights threaten to breakout. most ridiculous one being luis figo head butting a nederlands player. I was so shocked when i saw it. And he was lucky to get away with only a yellow card. But nost endearing scene was when a portugal player and 2 nederlands player red carded sat together somewhere off field, but basically coz they are team mates in some club or other so alls well i guess. And poor christiano ronaldo was ousted so early in the game coz of an injury from a challenge that it was a pity not to see how well he would have played. Admittedly i havent watch a portugal match yet and i forgot christiano was playing. But hopefully the next match wis injury would have healed. But by then i wonder who to root for england or portugal.

On another note, i went and watched fast and furious tokyo drift with flashy cars and hot girls. But the story line is mind numbingly bimbotic and lacking, which i guess serves mainly to parade flashy cars and hot girls. The camera works weren't as great as initial D for the drifts either. But i guess the cars make up for it. Although the drifting in the car park was pretty neat. Acting was bad mostly. Only a number of ppl seemed to manage, namely the Han character and maybe D.K. The rest just seem very fake. Oh well i guess thats usually the case with this kinda shows anyways.

can some one tell me why the tv doesnt show the host country playing live for world cup..... sigh.... prob coz it cost a bomb and free tv can't afford it. So sad, but then it would be ridiculous to get astro for world cup. i have enough things to do as it is without astro being a part of my live. And astro has to pau the england matches.... ish.... but i guess there is always something called the internet. And yes i am a kiasu football fan. But depends on what team la. but the streaming today sucked. and some apparent channel which suppose to show the live match ended up showing some stupid game show instead. waste my time only. But then all's good except for a few missed corners from beckham. But david beckham saves the day again with the sole goel comming from a damn nice free kick. No assist no nothing and i think no deflection from anyone also la. it just sailed through the defence wall and right through the goal keeper's hands into the bottom of the goal. he isn't just a pretty boy even if all the detractors says so. He does rise to the occasion. But all that's said about england, i dont see them lifting the cup. I am rooting for germany home advantage and all, and with their youthful team and nice play. Havent seen brazil play yet though although japan lost the them with a devastatiing 4 - 1. Either japan was that bad or they are starting to warm up. But sadly to say i feel its the former.

Oh well. Last time i am able to enjoy this world cup craze b4 i jump into work world. But do hope those asians do better the next time around. Another 4 yrs.

oh yeah the hols has started. But its only gonna be 3 weeks before the nightmare begins again.

i know malaysian musicians has long been working the international scene. But amazingly the korean music scene has have much of a change now that they are actually venturing into singing songs such as song nine on this page. Doesnt sound as nice in korean though, but times has change and the korean gasoos are slowly but surely taking the world by storm i guess. Some collab turned out not too bad e.g. bi and lee hom. But kangta and vaness? hmmm scandal is definitely and suitable name. but mostly wierd.

my modem is konked so i cant connect. I hope my laptop internal connection thing didnt get fried. *sob*. sigh.... anyways been one hell of a long couple of weeks. finished 2 papers along the way. And maybe having no connection was a blessing. Thank god to have such a great foresight seeing as to how i was wondering if indeed it was a joke that certain bizarre things tend to happen very near my exams which can be not the best thing. But then again no internet means i can't check my schedule whoch resulted in me panicking the last minute wondering if i hade been studying for the wrong paper. And also not able to access my pass year paper. Which at this point i guess turns out to not matter anyway. So yeah, i think it has been working out pretty fine so far. I hope its going to last, touch on wood. Pretty random this, but i happen to be looking at some site just now and i saw something submitted by a certain vincent though i didnt pay attention to the surname. And somehow i just sorta wonder if it was a certain person i knew till i stop myself short remembering he isnt here anymore. I know its pretty random and it is not as if i was that close to him. But the thing about life is that certain things just sorta nake u pensive just because you didnt expect to be thinking about it and it just happen to unexpectedly pop into your mind.

Ah well enough of rambling. back to studies, though regretfully the world cup has started and i am only able to catch the match properly after 23rd when all the group matched have finished. So i am hoping that either or both of Japan and Korea gets in and also of course Germany no doubt about it, else it be such an anti-climax and it couldn't be that brazil can't get a place could it? They just have to! and definitely England. If i go on like that i probably name all the teams silly me. But i really dunno who i hope would win, not that i think Japan or Korea will make it to the top, just because.
