Simply The Best

I know I'm pretty late with this, but I never knew how good George Best was until I watched this video.
(Via My Daily Bread, Trompe L'oeil)

One of the best players there ever was and will be.

Now we know why he's a legend.

Running On Low

Sorry for the lack of posts recently. For some reason, I've been too tired or too lazy to blog nowadays. It's probably due to work. They've been moving my shifts back and forth, so there's somedays when I work the afternoon shift (ending at 10pm), only to work the morning shift the following day.

I want to get back to blogging and reading blogs regularly. So as soon as that's possible, I'll do just that. In meantime, it's time for sleep. =)

Quote Of The Day #3

Sgt Teo: "God is always fair. He may give u alot of intelligence, but then he won't give u much common sense."

My friend's Sergeant was referring to this guy who got a GPA of 3.8 but wasn't very... smart. Apparently he brought a "How To Survive Field Camp" guidebook to field camp.

I didn't even know they made books like that.

Different Goal

(Updated picture)

I don't think anyone has noticed yet but..

In his 145 goals for Man Utd, Ruud Van Nistelrooy finally scores 1 from outside the penalty box.

Red Eye

Bloody hell. It's been a week and my right eye still hasn't recovered. Even the eyedrops the doctor gave doesn't seem to work.

I probably should cover it up to save myself the trouble of answering the question, "What happened to your eye?", at least 5 times a day.

I need to get myself one of those forehead protectors

To make it worse, my right eye constantly looks sleepy like Kakashi's in the picture, due to the slight swelling.

Where Are These Girls?

This is one of the funniest videos I have ever watched in my entire life.

I'm the strongest guy in the village where all the leaves are.

Latino Heat No More

A friend of mine me told to visit WWE.com and I found out that Eddie Guerrero has just passed away.


I don't really follow wrestling anymore because it's gotten boring but I have to admit that Eddie Guerrero was one of the wrestlers I enjoyed watching.

It's sad and shocking to find out that he's suddenly gone. Even if you follow the WWE just a little, I'm sure you feel the same way.

Bloody Eyes

Dang it. There's something wrong with my eye and my super lovable girlfriend says it's most likely Conjunctivitis, also known as Pink Eye.

It's pretty irritating to have this stupid conjunctivitis thing since my eye gets itchy and watery from time to time. And since it's contagious, I'll have to be careful about making contact with people.

What an eye sore

I shall spare everyone from seeing the other gross pictures that my image search brought up since mine isn't as bad. Of course if you would like to, you could always click on that link I just provided. Haha.

Hmm.. Maybe I'll use this as a chance to get an MC and escape from work. =D

Listening While Eating

During lunch hour on the days I work, I always go for lunch alone. It's not that I'm anti-social or anything, it's just most of our lunchtimes are different the rest of my colleagues are mostly old "aunties", so I'm not really on the same wavelength as the rest of them. Besides, I don't mind eating alone either.

So the problem is always deciding where to eat. On somedays I can't decide whether to eat at the food court or eat fast food. Usually I end up picking the location with the least people because like I said before, I hate crowded places, and also because finding a seat when you're alone can be pretty hard. I used to snigger at those people walking around, holding their food while looking for a seat, so of course I don't want to be doing the same thing.

I know that some people just cannot eat by themselves but eating alone is not so bad as many people think. As you take your meal you can eat at your own pace, day dream, take a break from interacting with people, look at pretty ladies people-watch and even listen to other people's conversations.

Alright, I know eavesdropping is not good, but when you're just a table or a seat away and someone is trying to talk above the bustling noise, you really can't help but overhear everything.

People talk about lots of things over lunch. Everything from what happened 20 years to what they're going to be doing this Christmas. But among all, the number one topic I always hear people talk about over lunch is... complaining about other colleagues.

Really, sometimes that's all anyone seems to talk about. Hmm.. Perhaps I might be a bit biased or inaccurate here because it's mostly women at the table whenever I hear this topic being talked about. Perhaps it's because men get the task done and quickly move on while the women like to converse more while eating.

It's interesting to see how they can keep a nice and friendly face in front of the person they dislike but once that particular person is gone, they change completely and all the bitchy comments start coming out. There have been 1 or 2 times when I've intentionally eaten slower just to listen more to the juciest piece of gossip. Some of the stories even typical drama elements like betrayal and vengence.

But overall, I find it really funny how grown men and women can behave like children at times through the things they say. All that badmouthing... Some of it's just really childish.

So be careful what you talk about over lunch. You never know who's listening. Or just don't talk so loudly.

Man Utd 1 - 0 Chelsea

United Vanquish Chelsea

What a classic game.

Once again this match has showed one thing: Never write Man Utd off. Alan Smith was simply outstanding in shutting out Frank Lampard and Wayne Rooney showed another good performance. Alright, Darren Fletcher scored the winning goal but he still sucks big time.

Alright Liverpool and Arsenal fans, come and celebrate with us what your teams couldn't do. Hahaha. =P

The Friendly Colleague

Work is really sucking my energy. That's the main reason I don't blog as often anymore. After work, I go home and then after a while it's time to sleep already. It's like I no more energy to do anything else when I get back home. Bah, I guess that's just how the working world is.

It's been a week into my new job now, and I'm glad that most of my colleagues are nice people. Of course, there are the occasional grumpy ones, but I just try to keep away from them.

There's this one colleague who I'm currently working with. He's a bit lazy when it comes to work but overall, he's a pretty nice guy. However, I think he might be gay. At first, when he'd pat me on the back and ask how was my day, I thought he was being nice. But after it happened many times, I started to wonder. And during those other instances, he'd pat me on other places like my shoulder or my arm.

And then today, this happened.

In the locker room:

(I'm sitting on the bench as he comes in.)

Colleague: Hey, so today wasn't very good right?

Me: Yeah, not too good. But it really can't be helped.

Colleague: Yah lor.

Me: Alright man, I'll make a move first.

Colleague: Eh... You're not going to change here first?

Me: Erm.. Not today. Last time I was going out so I changed but today I going home.

Colleague: Oh okay. Bye.

Maybe I'm being paranoid but that's the first time I've ever had a guy ask me about changing in front of him. Hopefully that's the only time. Hahaha.
