Insomnia

Insomnia, a Chronic inability to fall asleep or remain asleep for an adequate length of time. That is a dictionary definition on what is happening to me lately. I have no idea why. I am not stress, I don't have anything to worry about. Oh well, maybe it is my hayfever or something, but you know, when you are not able to sleep for a long period of time, you end up thinking so much crap it is unbelievable. But the funny thing is, by the time you wake up, you forget the majority of what you were thinking at the time. There is one thing that I think about, but I wouldn't want to share it here, since it is kinda personal and I don't think this is the place to share. This website is not Oprah you know, or whatever that US chat show is called where all those actors/actresses bring up their trouble child hood etc...

Talking about my hayfever affecting my sleep pattern, I think I have worked out a way of making hayfever go away, well control my hayfever without taking tablets. I do this by using magnets. I now wear two magnets on my ear and sometime wear these magnets on my nose, which has electricity pumped through it. I know it sounds silly, but I am sure it is working, since my symptoms have dramatically reduce, to a point in which today I forgot I even had hayfever. Maybe the weather has a part to play in it, since it has been so cool lately.. only time will tell.. hehe

World cup fever is still upon us, where England qualifies to the quarter finals, and guess what, the formation used was the one that was posted in the post below. Well, not completely the same, the personnel were different, and also the tactics were not the same as what I said below, but it is getting there, but to be honest, I probably would have played a more attacking formation today, against Ecuador, since they sat back a lot, and was kinda surprised about that tactic. But oh well, In-Ger-Land are through, to play Portugal, after Portugal beat Holland, in what I would call the most funniest and enjoyable game I have watched so far, and this doesn't include the football that was played. Oh My God, 16 yellow cards and 4 red cards in the game, people pushing each other over, diving everywhere, seriously these footballers should have a career in acting, since they definitely convince the referees and also made it very enjoyable for the viewing public (or is that just me?). But yeah, the 4-5-1 formation should suit England more for the Portugal game than the Ecuador game, just because Portugal won't sit as much as Ecuador, even though they did do a lot of sitting against Holland, which surprised me a bit. Oh well, only time will tell I guess.

Anyway, late already, 12:23 am here so I better TRY to get some sleep, if I can.. lol.. I am not really that tired, but need to get something. I have been sleeping like 4 hours a day because of this insomnia... lol.. also I should go since my fingers are hurting typing all this up, and I don't want to get RSI.. lol.. so cya later.

It's Coming Home...

It's Coming Home, It's Coming Home, Football's coming home.. well just not yet.. hehe... taken from the famous Beadle and Skinner track, probably England's best footie song of all time, but will it come true, will football actually be coming home? Before I move on to the world cup, lets elaborate more on pass world cup songs and also the current one. World cup songs for England has been, well putting it bluntly, just purely awful. The only one which has been able to live up to a footie anthem is Beadle and Skinner track, which was originally a Euro 96 song, not the World Cup 1998 song that is usually associated to. Even now, a great band like Embrace who made the current World Cup Song, World at your feet is simply lacking in quality. Why can't any people out there make a good football song. Well, it comes down passion. I haven't been to a footie match, but you go to one and you will hear pure genius songs and lyrics that will make your heart skip a beat. For example, a Peter Crouch song, he is big, he is red, his feet stick out of the bed, is just pure genius. So what am I getting at, actually I have no idea what the hell I am writing about now, but I think I am coming to a conclusion that in order to make a good footie song, you do not have to be great singers, have no musical talent, must be a die hard footie fan, and maybe being drunk wouldn't hurt; just take for example the great Beadle and Skinner (Ok, over used now, sorry). Comedians doing a TV show called Fantasy Football (have to say, was an amazing show, too bad it got axe) and everyone knew that they are football fanatics, have no musical talents, and yeah drunks as well; and over night transformed into music hero's... anyway.. enough of this, back to the world cup.

Well, we are nearly pass the group stages, oh yeah before I go on, I think I better warn you that this post is mostly to do with football, so if you hate football, look away now... Ok, back to what I was on about, we are nearly passed the group stages of the world cup, and our belated team, England has made it to round 2 of the competition. WOOHOO... It's Coming Home, It's Coming Home, Football's Coming Home... ehem.. right, and we now face the mighty Ecuador, who on their way to qualifying for the world cup beat the likes of Brazil and Argentina, bar having played at home which is like ten thousands metres above sea level, are a team we got to look out for. Eh? are you reading this correctly, yes you are, we have to fear them. Look at the way we played against Paraguay, which is a team we beat only 1-0 with an own goal, who are of similar football team as Ecuador as they both play in high altitude. We didn't play well against Paraguay, and at times, Paraguay actually deserved the draw. The problem we have is that we don't play with width, we don't pass and move, play in triangles, do not hassle the teams.. I could go on and on, and also, the stupid manager, Sven what's his face tactics are just diabolical. Playing arguably the best Midfielder in the world at attacking in the holding position? What is this guy on. If I had the chance to pick a team, the team I would pick is below. (Ok, this is considering the injury to Owen and Neville)

Now it gets complicated. Bare with me, but I just need to do this for my sake and my sanity. Look at this, it is a 4-5-1 formation, which a lot of the teams are playing at the world cup and has been working. But it is also a 4-3-3 formation as well. How? Well, when you haven't got the ball, you will move into a 4-5-1 formation where you flood the midfield and try to win the ball back in the middle of the park, and when you have the ball, or more accurately you are attacking, you switch to a 4-3-3 system, ala Chelsea, which will give you more attacking success. It also gives you width, since you have the two wingers, and also give support to the lone strikers via gerrard and lampard. It also gives protection to the back 4 without hampering Gerrard or Lampard. Now here comes the genius bit. In order to win the world cup, you must let Gerrard Roam around the park. Because of the flexibility of gerrard, and the way this formation is set out, he can also be a second striker. Also if he needs to can go and play on the right and left wing, which he can do because beckham and J. Cole can play in the middle of the park. This is what he does for liverpool, and it works, with him scoring 23 goals last season. Gerrard is the success of the team, not Rooney (he isn't fit), not fat Lampard who shoots all the time (did you know lampard leads the way as the player who has shot at goal the most time, having a total shot count of 18, with no goals). I think we need to play this way, at least have this formation in order for England to play at their best. Wow, that was technical, it's ok, I won't talk anymore on this anymore.. lol.


Wow, I have written a lot today, all on world cup... lol.. yeah I am a footie fan and I think if I am not mistaken watched every game... no I think I missed one or two, but yeah.. lol.. I actually don't have a clue who is going to win the world cup this year, maybe Argentina, but I don't have a feeling they will. I predicted Czech republic before the world cup, but not too sure now. Anyway, going now to see Argentina play Holland in their last group match. There might be mistakes above, but I will correct later.. I am sorry that I have written all about football, next time I will pick another topic to write on.

World Cup 2006

So, today is the start of the greatest sport competition on earth, where over 30 billion viewers will be watching the whole contest. Today is the start where boys become men, where any other event becomes eclipsed. Yes today is the start of the world cup, in Germany. Of course, I am bias, and I hope In-Ger-Land (the way we pronounce England when the footie (In America, it is soccer) team plays) will win, and yeah, we do stand a great chance in winning this yeah competition. Do I think we can win it? Yes, of course we can, any team from 6 can win it this year, but at the end of the day it all comes down to luck. Anyway, enough of football, we can talk more about that when the competition starts, lets move on to some of the things that I have done this week


Last Saturday, I think it was the 3rd June, I went with a lot of people to celebrate Alan and Antony 21st birthday. We all went paintballing. When we got there, we got split into two teams, one blue and one gold. I was in the blue team, and of course we won. HEHE... But I got the worse battle scars. I got shot in the neck, where bare flesh was exposed, and if you look at the photo on the right, you can clearly see the damage that occurred. It has basically cleared up now, but I am proud that I had the worse injury of the day, out of everyone including the other people who were there that wasn't in our group.

Then yesterday, I played some football in hyde park, and oh my god, I can't believe how unfit I am. I can barely run like 100 metres before feeling completely exhausted. LOL... need to get more fitter man. Also, my passing as well isn't up to scratch and also lost a lot of power in my shooting as well. Oh well, haven't played football in like 2-3 years, not surprising. Oh well... and also, my hayfever is so bad man. So stupid British weather. Oh well, just have to cope a little bit longer than. Oh well, I am going to go now, nothing more to right, so I say goodbye. BYE!!

Still here, I'm not going anywhere

Wow, long time without an update. Reason because I have nothing to talk about. I am so boring. There are no more exam talk and how I feel that they are pointless and there is nothing else which is exciting in my life. So what I have been doing since then and till today.. well I have been cleaning the house. LOL I am such a domestic!! Yeah, well my mommy isn't here, she in another country enjoying her holiday and this house is in a mess so I better tidy it up before she comes back this weekend, or she will have a go at me. lol.. but I have leant a useful lesson, cleaning is pointless. You clean one day and the next day the house is messy again. What is the point... Argh I don't know.. lol..

What else have I been doing, well, I been catching up on my playstation, argh.. this sounds so crap... not going to write anymore that isn't interesting. But this is interesting... What has Florida, Tokyo, Paris, Hong Kong and Johor Bahru got in common? All of these cities have or will have a Disneyland. Johor Bahru I hear you say, well yeah, my motherland country, Malaysia is thinking of building a Disneyland there. How good will that be.. hehehe.. well knowing Malaysian it will be completed in around 50 years time. But it will be good for the country, just wish they concentrate on other things before thinking to do anything of this scale.

An update on version 3 of my site. I have done absolutely nothing to it and to be honest, I can't be bothered, I am so de-motivated at the moment. The only thing that I have done is that music player thingy, and that is quite dodgy, and if a couple of you missed it, you can now find the link on the side of the page. It only works if you have windows media player (WMP), but version 3 will also be quicktime and real compatible, so don't worry if you don't have WMP. Anyway, I have nothing to write about now, so cya guys later...
