England Crumbles. And you wanna know why?

1. Because it was 1 player against 11. Gerrard vs Germany. He is the captain, but yet he had to do all the works. He takcled, he saved, he passed, he assisted, he shot. The rest of his teammate, well, what teammate?

2. Defenders flop. Where the hell is John Terry? Okay it might not sounds the right question, I rephrase it. What the hell is John Terry doing? The two latter goals, John Terry was nowhere near the defend position. You are the defender for God sake! And great partnership there you formed together with Matthew Upson. Matthew Upson? Are you kidding me? He played for West Ham man. And where was West Ham again last season? Near relegation man! Doesn't that give you a clue? And Glen Johnson, wait a minute. He was there? I didn't even notice!

Fabio Capello should've started with Jamie Caraggher. Yeah yeah I know, he kinda a fumble player himself, plus, he's already been booked. But he is the best you got for the time, and you didn't actually have any other choice, but why the bloody hell you did such a big gamble by gave up the place to Matthew Upson?

3. Dull, fruitless, lifeless and vague midfielders. Except for Gerrard. The others, they seems to be loosing ideas everytime they got the ball. And as a result, they always lost it, which then brought advantages to the Germans when they counterattacked because John Terry was already up and ready to score, and then Matthew Upson got panicked and shitted in his pants because nobody other that himself was around, and Glen Johnson, wait, Glen Johnson didn't even play.

Frank Lampard, well he is good with his club, but when it's come to international level, he never performed. Last 4 years in Germany, he got 22 shots but none of them got in. And this year, it seems like the same, and count also the disallowed goal, poor lads. And James Milner, I don't think he should've been in the starting line up. He is indeniably is great, but played it on the right midfield? Come on! Capello should've started with Aaron Lennon. The boy is fast, great skills, and have a great crossing, what more do you want from a winger?

4. Dysfunctional forward. Yes, dysfunctional. Rooney got a really bad day. Okay wait. Make it four days. He couldn't even make a shot, what more to test the goal keeper, or even score. The others? Well, it was okay, they were not that good anyway.

To the Infinity, and Beyond!

I love it! In fact, I think it was the best movie I've ever watch this year so far. I dare to say it was better than Kick Ass, or at least I think it was. And I might say it is the best among the trilogy. So you can just imagine, Toy Story 1 and 2 were already in the league of their own, how good can the third one can be?

It is funny, yet touching, and full of messages that we can take into account. And we could learn a lot from those toys.

What the movie is all about? You lazy bump. Alright, let me google it for you.

"Woody, Buzz and the whole gang are back. As their owner Andy prepares to depart for college, his loyal toys find themselves in daycare where untamed tots with their sticky little fingers do not play nice. So, it's all for one and one for all as they join Barbie's counterpart Ken, a thespian hedgehog named Mr. Pricklepants and a pink, strawberry-scented teddy bear called Lots-o'-Huggin' Bear to plan their great escape."

That was taken from IMDB. It sounds simple, but believe me it was far more complicated that it sounds. As usual more new characters, new villains, a lot of funny moments, and also touching scenes. Talking about funny, I couldn't stand it when Buzz Lightyear addressed Piggy as "Musical Hog." Musical Hog. LOL. I even chuckle when I wrote this. Who the hell came up with an idea to addressed a harmonica-playing-pig as musical hog?

After the movie we went downstairs to look for the merchandises, and we found Lots-o'Huggin' Bear and guess what? It does smells strawberry! LOL.

Anyway, a movie I strongly suggested you guys to watch. Altough I could say the 3D effects didn't impress so much though, but you should watch it because the storyline is so good, you will forget about the effects.

I read somewhere that there will be no more sequel after this, but believe me, we'd love to see a lot more of them in the future. We will never get tired of them. Muchas gracias Pixar and Disney for the lovely ending of the trilogy. We sure will miss Woody and his friends.

ps: Ah forgot to mention, before the movie starts they showed a short movie titled Day & Night. It was a nice movie though, about a creature representing Day met a creature representing Night, and they fight each other to prove that they are the best before they realize that they actually need each other.

World Cup 2010

Let me make this simple:

1. This is the most boring World Cup I've ever watched. So far. Or maybe the Italia'90 is the worst, but I can't barely remember back then, it was 20 years ago. Is it because that Jabulani ball? Seems the ball moved too fast and the players have problem to control it resulting in they will loose the ball so often and the ball will just go around in the middle of the field. Come on man, people wanna see goals, and great moves!

2. Argentina will win. They and the Germany are the only most promising team so far, but then again no European team has ever won the tournament outside the Europe. So Argentina it is.

3. Prediction 8 teams that will qualify to quarter finals, Germany, Argentina, Brazil, Netherlands,England, USA, Ivory Coast and Spain. What? No France or Portugal? Eat shit man. They should've sacked their manager even before coming to the tournament. They were useless! But wait, how come Spain is in the list? They just lost their first game! Well, Brazil lost 1 game during the group stage in 1998 but they still manage to reach the final.

4. I hate that fucking vuvuzelas!

5. South Africa is not capable enough to hold such a big tournament. They will go bankrupt within 5 years.

6. Mourinho said, Champions League is bigger than World Cup. I guess he is right, but maybe "bigger" is not the correct word. I would say "better". Champions League is better. Not just in term of the quality of the players, but also the referees, the commentators, even the camera shots! Champions League is way better. Don't believe me? Tune in to channel 806, and watch the highlight please. And then you compare it with EPL highlights, and after that you tell me.

7. Ahh I missed the 2006 World Cup. As far as I can remember, it was the best ever held. So many quality players, tactics, good teams, legends, and great goals.

8. I think FIFA's decision to organize 3 friendly matches before the tournament is stupid. We almost lost Drogba and Arjen Robben because of it. We already lost so many star players even before the friendly matches, and it is a big risk to organize even a single friendly match before the tournament, what more three!

Review of Iphone Apps #2

I've been using it for 16 months, and I have to admit, I never felt this satisfied when using a phone. The OS is very stable, rarely hanged, great graphic processor, hundreds of thousands apps to be downloaded, and furthermore, you can jailbreak it some more. Okay lets jump to the review already.

Admit One - Now Playing

This apps is rock! At first when I look at the review, I was curious, why the hell everybody gave 5/5 to this apps. Then after I installed it, wow this apps is awesome. Or at least to a movie freak like me. It listed down all the movies that currently showing, including the local movies, with rottentomatoes rating besides it. And it also shows which cinema will play it and the showtime, the synopsis of the movies, plus you can watch the trailer online! Awesome man. And some more they even listed upcoming movies and DVDs. For an avid movie goer like me, this apps definitely is a must. Plus it's free!

TVU Player

This apps gonna cost you USD2.99, but I got the jailbreaked one so it's free! And this apps rock too! They listed all the online tv available on the net and dump the links here, so you can watch movies, sports or even news online wherever you are. The quality of the video, hmm well, what can you expect watching video streaming online over 3G network? Not so fast, but I assure you it does worth it.


Not so useful except for the live traffic application. It listed down a lot of traffic cameras along the busy roads of KL, capture a picture and then send it back to you when you requested it so that you will get the idea on how busy the traffic is. Kinda useful though, and it's free. So no harm while trying.

BioDefense - Zombie Outbreak

I loved it, and I know somebody will, because it involve killing a lot of zombies! Haha. It's pretty much like C&C: Red Alert but not that complicated, easier to play as what you have to do is to defend you base from being attack by those zombies. And it also features some missions and connect the database to the net so you can compare your rank with other people around the world.
