Rest in peace, Malaysia.

all pray to the almighty god...

Robbie Fowler 'The God' is back. It's time to paint the town red.

After a disastrous period where Fowler seemingly drifted into faraway corners in the country, the God has finally came back to where he belong.

He may not be the best striker in the country right now, but he remains the true Red all Liverpudlians love. Hopefully his prolific form of old returns together with him to Liverpool.

All hail the GOD!

ah damn...

Liverpool lost 1-0 to Man Utd.

Hoo boy, didn't see that coming. I really wanted to say that Man Utd didn't deserve the win, but let's face the fact: Liverpool did not do enough to earn the point. Toothless attack, as many would say. You don't expect to win high profile matches like this if you can only blaze the ball over the bar with the empty net 6 yards in front of you.

Ferdinand scored a good goal. Man Utd played well. It only hurts because the goal came in injury time. Had they scored earlier it would be a lot easier to digest the pain. I hate last-minute goals, but Liverpool has their fair share of luck throughout the season too. So yeah, credit to Man Utd. Neville with his regular anti-Scouse celebration, but no big deal really. I really can't imagine if people would try to bring it up later cuz it's just a stupid argument. I mean, every Liverpool fan hates Neville, so it's natural that the feeling's mutual.

In the end of the day, the only winner would be Chelsea as they pull further away. But pray and with fingers crossed that Liverpool will do well enough for the maiden place. One match doesn't determine the course of the entire season.

Let's hope that the only thing Liverpool lost today is the bragging rights.

food for thought...

Saw this in friendster's buletin board...

1) New York City has 11 letters.
2) Afghanistan has 11 letters.
3) Ramsin Yuseb (The terrorist who threatened to destroy the Twin Towers in 1993) has 11 letters.
4) George W Bush has 11 letters.

This could be a mere coincidence, but this gets more interesting:
1) New York is the 11th state.
2) The first plane crashing against the Twin Towers was flight number 11.
3) Flight 11 was carrying 92 passengers. 9 + 2 =11
4) Flight 77 which also hit Twin Towers, was carrying 65 passengers.6+5 = 11
5) The tragedy was on September 11, or 9/11 as it is now known. 9 + 1+ 1 = 11
6) The date is equal to the US emergency services telephone number 911. 9 + 1 + 1 = 11.

Sheer coincidence..?! Read on and make up your own mind:
1) The total number of victims inside all the hi-jacked planes was 254. 2 + 5 + 4 = 11.
2) September 11 is day number 254 of the calendar year. Again 2 + 5 + 4= 11.
3) The Madrid bombing took place on 3/11/2004. 3+ 1 + 1 + 2 + 4 = 11.
4) The tragedy of Madrid happened 911 days after the Twin Towers incident.

Now this is where things get totally eerie:
The most recognised symbol for the US, after the Stars & Stripes, is the Eagle. The following verse is taken from the Quran, the Islamic holy book:"For it is written that a son of Arabia would awaken a fearsome Eagle.The wrath of the Eagle would be felt throughout the lands of Allah and lo,while some of the people trembled in despair still more rejoiced: for the wrath of the Eagle cleansed the lands of Allah and there was peace."

That verse is number 9.11 of the Quran. Still unconvinced about all of this..?!
Try this and see how you feel afterwards, it made my hair stand on end:

Open Microsoft Word and do the following:
1. Type in capitals Q33 NY. This is the flight number of the first plane to hit one of the Twin Towers.
2. Highlight the Q33 NY.
3. Change the font size to 48.
4. Change the actual font to the WINGDINGS

What do you think now?!

You really wanna know what I'm thinking now? This is one heck of a lengthy bullshit.

Tell you what, George Washington Bush has 20 freaking letters, okay? Tissue paper has 11 letters, so it must have something to do with the bombing. Wow, what a discovery!

That's not all, look. 911 days after the terrorist attack, I was channel surfing in my living room. Isn't that a freaky coincidence? Man, I am so shocked that it happened on that day! And hey, coincidence has, like, 11 letters! Oh my, this is so darn freaky people!!!

Okay, let's get serious now. I am pretty disturbed reading these stuff written.

I'm sick with people trying to justify the fact that deaths of hundreds of innocent lives has something to do with words from the holy book, because IT DOESN'T. Lives are lost because of IDIOTS who can't think properly with their brains, and the consequences of living with these numbskulls result in tragedies like this.

You don't KILL in the name of religion.

So what if the author of the useless script above managed to find facts relating to the number 11? What the hell is the significance of the number 11 in the first place? Why, in the bloody hell, does the author even thought of writing such bullshit in the first place? Aaargh!!!!

I almost feel like ripping off both my arms reading this piece of shit.

a brand new year...

It's been a healthy two weeks since my last post and I just feel like it's about time to update.

I'm feeling a bit exhausted, largely due to the fact that the new semester has just begun and I'm still trying to revert back to normal sleeping hours. The other reason would be the crazy workload for my thesis project, which saw me working overtime for the past week. Barely had time to sleep, let alone concentrate in lectures.

Thankfully this sem I'll be taking plenty of lightweight papers, it is my final sem after all (provided that I don't screw up). Besides, with my CGPA mathematically out from 1st class, there's nothing much to look forward to. And the introduction of standard curves in grades didn't help much. Thus, I've decided to let my hair down and enjoy this semester and make up lost times.

For my thesis, though, my supervisor had just gave me a deadline for my labwork, which is on Valentine's. By that time I'm supposed to have gathered all the results that I need and start concentrating on my draft instead. Now, as each of my protocol would require a minimum of 10 successive hours to complete, and having at least 9 more of this protocol before I can finalise my benchwork, I've came up with a conclusion: I would be seriously deprived of sleep by the time I hand in my results.

Already had a preview of this hectic schedule. I spent the past three days attempting to finish three protocols in a row plus attending lectures at the same time. My Thursday lectures begin at 9am and end at 8pm, then headed straight to the lab and worked till late evening yesterday (Saturday). Some occasional breaks in between, obviously, to take showers and meals and catnaps. It'll be a long month till 14th of February.

Studies aside, this New Year has been unimpressive on a personal pov. No celebrations this year, too busy and occupied to organize a gathering like the ones we had for the past few years. The poor turnout also adds to my decision for the no-show this year. Instead of working my ass off trying to gather up old friends who don't really give a damn anyway, I spent the eve out having a drink with a coursemate while enjoying a live telecast of Liverpool vs West Brom.

Which feels a lot better cuz Liverpool won 1-nil.
