How to Fly at the Speed of Sound, REALLY…

Saw an interesting info-graphics on how to skydive and reach Mach1. Makes you feel like a Superman doesn’t it..

Twelve Days before Singapura Hari Jadi

New Theme: Cutline.. Seems quite slick and nice but still I prefer black ones which are rather difficult to find especially those good ones. Gonna try out with this new set-up for the time-being.

Its been almost a weeks since the last blog post. Finally, Special Sem ended and finally get to enjoy a short 3 week break before the new Sem begins. This 3week break is actually a god-send due to Singapore hosting the inaugral Youth Olympic Games. While writing this, the flames for the dungeons or ever-burning flame of Mount Hera(The Birthplace of Greek Gods & Ancient Olympics), are slowly being escorted to our shores. I reckon the flame is somewhere over the Western Sahara as it travels to Dakar, Senegal(Yes, the birthplace of Rapper, Akon!).

Hmm, as a Singaporean myself, I am not really so enthusiastic about the games even though television, radios and SG websites are flooded with songs, pictures, commercials on YOG. Just couldn’t be bothered I guess. I think i rather look forward to National Day 2010 which will be held in Padang. This field has a special place in my history cos exactly 10 years ago, I participated in the millenium year 2000 NDP parade. Really.No BS.

One thing I am really amazed about Singapore is the continual new NDP songs the produced each year. You know those songs that are forever etched onto the young minds of Singaporeans like, “We are Singapore” and “Stand up for Singapore” . Yes, they may sound cheesy but surprisingly are catchy and easy to memorise. Well, there also bad songs over the years which are just terrible. This year however they brought Corrinne May- Song for Singapore. Well, the song’s not bad but I don’t understand why singers nowadays have to sound americanised. Just sing Singlish lah, that way then we know it is really a Singapore Brand song. I let you judge the song for yourself, watch the vid below.

The day after Fifa World Cup 2010… Viva Espana!!!!

VIVA ESPANA, SPAIN CAMPEONES!!!

As per my title, Spain is victorious and thus lifting a 55year old international drought. They deservedly won not just by virtue of their status of 2008 European Champions but also by being the best playing team in the tournament. They are truly the proponent of masters of the beautiful game.

Highlights of the match was dominated by 14 yellow cards and 1 red card given out by the botak English referee, Howard Webb. 11 of those belong to the dirtied and rough playoff Dutch. Simply said, the Dutch was a total rugby team, tackling players and kicking the Spanish players to the ground..So much for the Total Football of the fancied Dutch.

Just like I predicted, Spain won the match at extra time, with a  goal by Andres Iniesta.After a gruelling 0-0 full time, with most possession by Spain, the match saw several clear cut chances by both team. Arjen Robben had 2 one on one encounter with Iker  Casillas. One was saved by his outstretched feet and one covered by him with Carlos Puyol impeding Robben along the way. Whilst Spain had an open goal missed by David Villa and open header by Sergio Ramos, which is definitely one of the best right backs in the tournament.

Now, we have to wait the next Fifa World cup which will be in Brazil. Now I can’t wait to savour the samba team playing on their own homeground. Waka waka eh eh, this time for Africa.

Why Az thinks Spain will win..

Before I start blabbing on my theory of Spain winning the world cup, let me first tell you my prediction for the Uruguay vs Germany match: 4-0 to the Krauts… just have that gut feeling, they will knick 4… no offence to Uruguay but the Krauts are way too strong…

Ok now my theory to as to why Spain will win:

1) They are the current Euro2010 champions
2) The total value of their players in the squad costs higher than annual GDP of Kiribati(an island nation in the pacific)
3) David Villa is on fire…Golden Boot for sure…
4) The Spanish league is just to superior in terms of national players quality
5) Because Paul the Sotong says so..

SO as you can see all my theories are pretty solid and justified of Spain superior strength while I still regard Netherlands as strong just not world champs yet… This will be a great final due to both team entering the first finals in their history.

OK NOW as for predictions, here it goes…

      SPAIN 2- 1 NETHERLANDS (1scored during extra time)
