my best friend's wedding...

2008 is coming to an end, and I'm not gonna let the year pass by without a mention of my best friend's wedding. ; )

I must say this is one of my best moments in 2008, seeing a close friend for over 10 years, getting married. And for sure, this is the most memorable day for Ang and Pei Li.
A very belated Congratulations to Ang and Pei Li, and I hope you'll live happily ever after!

liverpool's early christmas gift...

Well, what do you know.

Christmas is in a couple of days, and Liverpool are surprisingly STILL at the top of the league table.

One would’ve guessed Liverpool would be slumping down the table with two successive draws and with some dreaded displays of late, but then again who would’ve thought the rest of the big guns are having their patchy mid-season form on as well?

Chelsea is having some tough time themselves, and with John Terry now out for three matches during the festive season, that will surely be a major loss for the men in blue.

Arsenal are already choking all the way this season, and although nobody’s writing off anybody, I sincerely believe it’ll be a huge challenge for Arsene Wenger’s side to mount a credible climb up the pecking orders with the league getting so competitive now.

Man Utd may be having 2 extra games in hand, but that doesn’t mean there are 6 points in the pocket. They can be as close as 1 point behind Liverpool, but they can also be as far as 7 points away if results go our way. And let’s not forget Evra is having a lengthy ban himself, and he has been one of the most consistent performers in the Man Utd squad now.

And let’s not forget Aston Villa is making a statement to break into the Big Four stronghold, and at the moment they certainly look like they are more than capable to do so.

It’s a fun festive season this Christmas, and though Bolton and Newcastle aren’t totally pushovers, I certainly hope Liverpool will end 2009 top of the league, and it’ll be a bonus if we can pull away from the chasing pack. ;)

Merry Christmas everybody!

I would really liked to blog about my friend's and my brother's wedding in these past week, but until today I still can't find myself capable of reaching to my home PC and download some photos into it. And well, to be honest, I am kinda in a rush to finish up all the pending jobs I'm currently holding, and then take a week off work (and home too) for a breather.

First weekend in December:
At work, followed by Ang's wedding.

Second weekend in December:
My brother's wedding. And it's pretty stressful to be the punching bag of many stressful people around you.

Third weekend in December:
Which is this coming weekend, my girlfriend had planned a river-rafting trip near Gua Tempurung with my ol' housemates and uni friends, and then perhaps going to the hot-spring in Sungkai as well.

Fourth weekend in December:
Right after Christmas, my girlfriend's mom and sis will be visiting KL, and will spend the entire week off from work and home too. Well, I had to since there'll always be traces of work back at home I have run away in order to escape from work!

can the reds stay top?

I've never seen Liverpool leading the table so many months into a season and as far as I'm concerned, this may well be one season that we can finally be challenging for the title.

I don't really want to set the expectations too high so I won't be disappointed come end of the season next May, but to watch the current Liverpool team play is pretty much all the joy since the team has proved to be able to play some beautiful football at par with Arsenal and Man Utd. Of course, grinding out results and points along the way make the games more enjoyable too. ;)

And on top of everything, the team actually looks like they are not playing up to their best yet, Keane hasn't got into any sort of goal-scoring act, Torres in-and-out with injuries, inconsistent fullbacks of Dossena and Aurelio, long-term injury to Skrtel, and Mascherano looked like he's quite jaded after going for the Olympic games. So how good can this team be when everyone's back and hitting form? I don't know, but I'm excited if the team gets to show the entire league what they're capable of.

Blackburn up next without a win in their last 9 games. Let's see how Liverpool will cope with this physical side and make a statement.

It's a great season to watch Liverpool play, and it's a great month to catch plenty of matches!
