Espana Campions?

I managed to catch the last 10 minutes of Spain's match against Ukraine and I must say I came away very, very impressed!

The Spanish team played like champions... they kept possession well and passed the ball around fluidly... they also chased every ball that was lost and when they finished, they finished clinically. The goalkeeper, defenders, midfielders and forwards all worked together like a team and played very, very well. There does not seem to be any weaknesses anywhere... they are THAT good.

The Brazilian, French and English fans must have wished that their players had played like that...

Will the Spanish finally shed their images as perennial underachievers? We shall see... :)

Double O Bond

I've just watched the latest trailer of the next Bond movie, Casino Royale and guess what? it is very impressive and I can't wait to watch this latest installment of the Bond series. This movie brings us back to when James Bond first joined the Double-O ranks.

If the trailer is anything to go by, this new Bond is more hard-edged than his predecessors... which I think is very, very cool. Back to basics, Mr. Bond?

Oh yeah, one more thing... Daniel Craig, the new Bond, bears a striking resemblance to a young Sean Connery! If you don't believe me, just pay attention to the last scene of the trailer.

Rooney and his metatarsal

I am beginning to wonder if Rooney's injuries was over-stated... a smoke screen... hmm...

This is bad, only 2 postings in the past month... I'm afraid I don't have much time to blog lately, with Su Yin back in Penang permanently (yay!) and student's coursework to mark (boo!).

Lots of things are happening... Mei Ching and William is back in Penang with my nephew, Isaac. Very cute, with large head! hehe... They will be back for a week or so, then its off to HK for a week before flying back to KL for Daw Swee's wedding.

Su Yin is bz getting her career life started... it was kinda stressful initially cos she din get much offers or replies... but lately it has been better. Offers are coming in but I think she's settled with teaching for now... until March next year when she will try and start her Master's paper again... no grants yet this year.

Willie will be back next week and we'll have a real big reunion in KL. Hopefully everyone can go down this time.

Hopefully I'll post abit more this month... hrm... maybe not, cos World Cup is starting in 2 days time! Woohoo! Samba, boys! :)
