Paul Octo and a Spanish Dream Come True


Per known to the whole world, Spain beats Germany in 2010 FIFA World Cup Semi Final with 1-0 this morning. [Big O.U.C.H] This winning not only a dream comes true for Spain; it also brightens Paul Octo's credibility as a psychic. [As a Muslim, we ought to believe that the results were nothing foreseen by the octopus, it's all fate and hard work.]

The game was intense. Both team wanted to win to gain a step closer to the cup. I had series of near-heart attack while watching the game. Spain was all determine and driven by the fact that if they wins, this will be their first time in FIFA World Cup Final. As adrenaline pumps in both teams, Spain's motivation was undeniably more powerful compare to a forth-time winning aimed by Germany.

Whether or not Paul chose Spain over Germany, with skills shown this morning, it was an earned winning. It breaks my heart when Germany lost, but Spain really was a worthy opponent. Instead of threatening a baby octopus, Germany might want to speed up the post mortem on the team itself. Yes, it is almost stupid to blame an octopus. Hahaha. There's always something -- either you don't play it well enough or your opponent play better.

I'd like to congratulate Germany's goal keeper, Mr. Manuel Neuer. He did a great job. If not for his skill, Germany might be beaten up more than one goal. To Mr. Carles Puyol, you rocks dude! Though Germany's players were higher, Puyol manage to leap over his fellow team mate and score with his header. Thanks to our Man of the Match Xavi for his corner kick. What a goal!

Oh! And I have serious issue with the referee -- Mr. Viktor Kassai of Hungrary. He is so stingy. Mesut Ozil deserves a free kick if not a penalty. Not only Ozil, there were cases in both teams that I think could be a card or a free kick -- no card at all! Mr. FIFA President, I thought we have discussed about this oddity??

Spain will meet Netherlands in final. A fact, both teams are first timer in FIFA World Cup Final. I can't wait to see the game. [After Italy goes home, I am not a supporter to any team. It's just a preference plus statistics] I foresee Spain can win this 2010 World Cup if they play as good as this morning.

David Villa and Wesley Sneijder are securing the Golden Boots award and I am sure both will want to score more. It will be an interesting battle to watch! I just hope that this Golden Boots thing will not ruin the game.

I wonder if Paul will survive today, with menus of him spread across the globe (^_^) If he survived, I'd want to know what is his prediction over Spain - Netherlands match.

Paul the Octo Oracle predicts that Spain will win this years World Cup and Germany will win third place..
It's funny how an octopus can become so famous or hated, depending on which team a person supports..

Tapi kelakar dan seronok bila ramai respon pada kekalahan Germany kepada Spain. Bukan percaya pada ramalan Octo tu, lebih pada nak menjadikan satu situasi kecewa kepada kelakar. Paul Octo ala Sambal anyone..hehehheh..

Goodbye Ben Jern

Oh my... another good bye. Why laaaaaaaaaa~!

Today, we bid farewell and we wish a great future to our one and only Loh Ben Jern of #BenHafiz FlyFM. Our heroes of insanity.
It's the final 30 minutes of flying with Ben's craziness... So sad! Huhuhuhuhu. Ben Jern has been on air since 10 PM last night - slumber party katanya - and I only sleep 3 hours plus, listening to him sambil kemas barang.
I know, some of you might think: "What is wrong with this girl, crying over a DJ...". Clearly, you don't know Ben, you never listen to these #FunnyBigBoys #BenHafiz and you never listen to Mrs. Boopathy and Pak Jamil or their Krappi Call. They are the only person on earth who can make Malaysians do *obviously* crazy stuff over a phone call. Hahahaha. Ben is the most adorable talking goat. LOL!

*** They are airing the Grandmother of All Krappi Call again - where Ben finally got krappi-ed *** I was laughing madly in the car earlier this morning... And then I cried. Oh it was su…

Celebrate the Love: Bones and Booth

I have exam at 2 pm today and I've been burning the midnight oil. But I really really really want to share this: Bones and Booth's wedding vow. Well sort of wedding conversation, actually.
I love them and I am happy that the characters finally get their happy ending.

To Bones, the coolest geek I ever known, and to Booth, congratulations!

Booth: "You know, I worked really, really hard on my vows, but you know, now that we're here—look, hey, do you remember the last time that we were here, standing right around this spot? It was right in the beginning, before we really knew each other. I was trying to get away from you, because you were irritating me, and you chased me down and you caught up to me. I said to you, 'Listen, I just have to get all my ducks in a row,' right, and then you said to me, [Brennan: "I can be a duck."]. Yeah. We had been chasing each other for a long time, been chasing each other through wars and serial killers and ghosts and sn…

Getting Out of the Slump

Sometimes I feel like crying will solve everything. When I feel like that, I know I am in the slump - "The New Moon" slump. I called it that because I am in a similar state as Bella Swan in The New Moon after Edward Cullen left her.
"It's like a huge hole has been punched through my chest."
"Normal memories were still dangerous. If I let myself slip up, I’d end up with my arms clutching my chest to hold it together, gasping for air..."
It's hard to get out from this state, but I have bounce back before. It took a lot of patience, a lot of determination, a generous amount of support, and most importantly: a strong will.
The strongest will is fueled by living up to the purpose of our creation - to submit and worship Allah.
Crying does solve everything; when you used up all your energy and cry in your solat and doa.
It is always the darkest before the new moon. And stars are the brightest during this time.

I'll find my way - I assure myse…
