Forza Azzurri -- Congrats & Thank You

What a game!

Almost drop my jaw for the first goal.
Bit my fingers for the second goal.
Lost my words when Thiago Motta left the game.
Experienced vertigo for the third goal.
Lie down for the fourth.

Full time:
Italy 0 - 4 Spain ( Silva 14' | Jordi Alba 41' | Torres 84' | Juan Mata 88' )

Football heart break is genuine heart break.
Especially when two sweethearts fight against each other.
Can't you two just be in one team?! (sincerely me, being silly~)

It is heart crushing to see Buffon leading the squad for their silver medallion.
It is epic to see Casillas with the trophy.
It would be more epic to see Buffon with the trophy ^_____^ v

Winning EUFA EURO 2012 is important for both Italy and Spain. Italy to wins after 44 years and Spain to wins their third European title consequently. My darling Azzurri has given their best; but best men win (better men win?). La Roja definitely deserve the title. We have seen how determination being redefined by Spain in World Cup 2010. They did it again last night, proving they are the best football team in the world.

Congratulations to Spain for the European title hat trick.
Congratulations and big thank you to Italy for being in the final.

Though they were defeated (thrashed 0-4 some media said), I believe the Azzurri has shown great performance. They take risk and played the game differently from their usual defensive religion. There is hope for better Azzurri - another reason for fans to keep on supporting them. Furthermore, for once the Azzurri gives impression that they could win the title and make the neutrals to consider choosing them over Spain.

It is just not their time, yet.
And yes, still a pround Azzurri fan! *wink*

[The ever inspiring] Gianluigi Buffon, Italy captain:
"It's ended badly because we faced a great team who deserved to win. Sometimes in life you need to be able to accept defeat and compliment opponents who were better. They have a lot of players who are accustomed to playing certain types of games, important games like the final of a European Championship. I think at the start we paid for this because we were not the same Italy as we have been. We have nothing to complain about. Spain were the better team and we congratulate them."

"It hurts this way. The game was already over after the first half. With Italy reduced to ten men after 61 minutes, the Spanish dominated the game and won a historical third trophy in a row." Gazzetta dello Sport, Italy

"Italy, don't cry. The Azzurri were tired and reduced to ten men for almost half an hour, and they go home with a 4-0 loss that cannot make us forget a thrilling tournament. [Giorgio] Chiellini and Thiago Motta's injuries were decisive." Tuttosport, Italy

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…
