Now That The Season Is Over

With 3rd place finally safe in the bags and the neighbour being ousted from the last Champions League place next season, we can enjoy St Totteringham's Day and a couple of good beers...

Hopefully Monsieur Wenger learned last summer's lesson well. If your player wants to leave, they WILL leave, no point pretending otherwise until it is too late...

I have a gut feeling that our Captain Vantastic will leave this summer, and as much as Wenger hints otherwise, I think he knows the club will be raking in another 20 to 25 million pounds soon... But he acted fast this time, which is good, bringing in Lukasz Podolski early on, although I truly believe he will play instead of rather than alongside van Persie next season...


Not the end of the world though... With Arsenal and Wenger, we know we will survive... when Henry left, everyone predicted we would be caught in the relegation battle. When Fabregas and Na$ri left, everyone predicted we would be caught in the relegation battle. On both occasions, did we?

No doubt when Captain Van leaves, everyone will start predicting again...

I actually don't feel that worried for next season... I mean, we're fairly covered in all areas...

Goal: Sczezesny in goal is much better than Almunia and Flappyhandski...

Defence: Would you trade Verminator and Koscielny for another pair of centre backs? Sagna and Gibbs are not the most flamboyant or full backs, but on their day, they are fairly effective. And a substitute of Mertesacker, Santos, and Jenkinson aren't too shabby either.

Midfield: The trio of Song, Arteta and Rosicky has been integral in our run to 3rd. Ramsey will be well rested, and Ox will step up, and Wilshere will be back, and Ryo is coming back, and the youngsters are coming through...

Attack: Podolski, Gervinho, Walcott. I can foresee that they will share the goal scoring load more evenly rather than rely on 1 man...

Knowing Wenger, we can stop expecting dreaming about an Eden Hazard or a Javier Pastore. That's not gonna happen...

I'd just be plenty glad if he would look lower down the league table and get a bargain or 2 to shore things up. I personally prefers these 2 man:

1. Mohamed Diame - he doesn't cost a transfer fee now, and he knows the type of football Arsenal plays. He would be an option that releases Alex Song to a Yaya Toure role...


2. Junior Hoilett - he will be cheap and he's got pace. I actually wants to see him and Ox on the wings, and Walcott moves into a more central striking position.


Actually I never understood why Wenger refuses to use Walcott in Henry's role. He learns from Henry, and he wants to play in Henry's role, and he scored a hat-trick for England in that position. Not to mention the Invincibles' are formed on Henry-Bergkamp axis.

I know 4-3-3 or 4-3-2-1 is the way to go in Europe, but for the Premier League, 4-4-2 should be the way to go...

LASTLY, I THINK WE SERIOUSLY NEED A SPECIALIST DEFENCE COACH TO TEACH THE PLAYERS TO DEFEND AS A TEAM. The problem is how we defend, not who plays the defender...

And, let's hope my prediction on van Persie becomes dead wrong...

Nescafe

话说从前,有一罐Nescafe咖啡。有一天,它在午餐时分被买下了。

Once upon a time, there was a can of Nescafe coffee. One day, it was bought during lunch time.


没想到,与其就这样被喝了,它决定和买者同归于尽,玉石俱焚。

Alas, instead of being drank, it decided to do a kamikaze on the buyer.


NESCAFE! WHY U NO STAND UPRIGHT???!!!

叉烧

难得回家,陪了妈妈和妹妹出来逛逛,妈妈说要打包好吃的 rojak,车就驾到 rojak 当旁边停了下来,让妈妈去打包。

不料,等着等着,突然就下起倾盆大雨。眼看妈妈冒着大雨打包吃的给我们,我们却坐在车里等。


顿时感觉自己真的很叉烧。

妈妈永远都是伟大的。

Desperate Measures

This was the view of our company's car park at 7PM...


Do you see the silver Myvi on the right side? Do realize what's so awkward here?

Well, you see, the driver did not park that far away from the designated parking spot just to show how stupid he is.

Let me try to show you how this scene might look like 3 to 4 hours ago...


Red arrow is where the parking spot ends, at 3PM, you would see 3 or 4 cars between the 2 cars in the picture.

You see, there were 3 car parks for the employees. Then last month, the bosses decided to close down 1 of the car park to build a new building. So, all the cars that normally park there are funnelled here. As a result, the late comers would have to park very very far from the entrance to the office.

Being the 1Malaysians we are, you know how resistant we are to the idea of walking very far under the hot sun. So some smartasses a.k.a stupid geniuses decided to 'over'-park at the parking area closer to the entrance.

It is a very frustrating adjustment period for all of us. I usually check in to the office at 8AM, and I would park on the front row closest to the door. Now, I park 5 to 6 rows away.

And the best part of it is, this is rather permanent, since there won't be any new car park being allocated to replace the closed down one.

ZZZzzzzzzz...............

Fish and Chips @ 又一城

The thing is, no matter how I look at it, the so called Chips are actually Fried Bananas @ Pisang Goreng...


And, why would 又一城 be called Boston?

孔明出祁山

最近在追 [三国] 连续剧。看到孔明 [五出祁山 北伐曹魏] 总觉得一头雾水了。


楚汉相争时,韩信也曾从汉中 [明修栈道 暗渡陈仓],出了陈仓后没多久功夫就兵临长安城下,一举拿下关中。

为何孔明却五出祁山,千辛万苦,费了九牛二虎之力,却还是未能攻到长安,无功而返,最后还病死于军营?当时曹魏的国都在许昌,而且蜀汉北伐初期,司马懿还没有被派去镇守边境,要取下关中这地盘应该不难于韩信之时。

孔明一直说,失去荆州导致他的北伐大业一直被粮草供给的问题所困,可韩信率兵出汉中时,刘邦也没有占据荆州之地啊。

难道说,三国时代军师们之韬略,根本远远不及楚汉之辈?说孔明,周瑜,司马懿等如此神机妙算,其实是大家的言过其谈?

可是如果说孔明之辈根本就是被夸大其才了,他们其实都是没什么了不起的,又怎么解释司马懿屡屡上了诸葛亮的当?难道说,他们全部都是庸才,只是诸葛亮比他们聪明一点,所以就擢升成为当代奇才了。

如果把孔明放在楚汉相争时期,以他的本事,不知道能不能被刘邦重用?

Bersih is Apolitical

It pissed me off great time when I was at the padang the other day when there were a few dickheads shouting "REFORMASI! REFORMASI!" amidst the crowd that were chanting "BERSIH! BERSIH! BERSIH!"

It also pissed me off that when PKR's people arrived, they carried with them a banner with both PKR's logo and Bersih's logo together, as if PKR is a sponsor for Bersih.

Good thing Uncle Lim and gang had the decency to not do that, all of them wore Bersih attire, and no rocket logos were seen throughout.

Fuck off, Anwar's goons, don't sodomize Bersih's noble intention. Bersih is all about demanding free and fair elections. All we want is a fair fight between BN and PR. If BN wins fair and square, so be it.

Bersih is NOT about toppling BN, Bersih is NOT about ABU, they are totally different concepts. If you monkeys can't grasp this, then you are no better than UMNO.
