Event-full Weekends

Its been a pleasant long weekends with my dear, thanks to Raya, and im well occupied with outings and events. Despite my busy schedule over the long holiday, i end up missing in action in three of the occasions...

Among the events that i failed to attend...
1. The PGHK gathering on Sunday in 3G @ E-Gate at 4PM. No doubt im very much interested to participate and join in the laughter, though i cant speak well in a crowd of people. By the time i came out from shopping mall, its already 4:45PM, else i would have attend. I miss the fun!!! i still prefer to be known as BoMia...
2. My college mates gathering at Mizi Bistro, New World Park on Monday evening and during that moment, i was at AutoCity Juru. Sorry guys, perhaps some other time. I know its a rare chance cause my piu mui July seldom come to Penang nowadays.
3. A meeting with YeeJunn and friends last night at Bellisa Row. My apology, i was too tired cause i've been out all day.

Today feels like Monday, dont you think so? The fact is, today is Wednesday, and im looking forward for weekends to arrive. Why? I got a feeling that its going to be another great weekends... To Arthur!!!

Things to do during this weekends, go to the newly open Hard Rock Cafe in Penang!!! Probably wanna check out on HTC Hero as well since it already here. I know my dream is getting bigger, but no harm done cause its just a dream, and only remain as a dream...

"im dreaming of a new Hero,
just like the ones i used to dream,
where the Google twinkles,
and Android sparkles..."

To Henrick and Vince, yea, i saw the HABB on RobotMaster. Its so cool!!! New mint in box, sealed and wrapped. Its quite expensive though and wasnt reasonable for me to own the figure. Poor Dann, he would rather continue on his papermade Bumblebee. As for the progress, recently its very minimal. Please be patience.

Till then, CHEERS...

Penang Hokkien Gathering At Starbucks

Its been a busy weekend. Load of events and handful of activities. My brother came back from KL, family and relatives get together for dinner and movie, "Where Got Ghost", holiday with my dear, and the most of all... the Penang Hokkien podcast gathering.

John "Miku" Ong, the creator of Penang Hokkien podcast, is back from US. Knowing that he's organizing a gathering at Starbucks Queensbay at 4PM, damn im so anticipated to join the fun. I get to meet my idol, its like seeing a celebrity!!! So cool!!!

Me and my Star participate in the podcasts as well, PGHK #215 PGHK Starbucks. Due to the fact that we go in nameless, Miku gave each of us a nickname. It will be revealed in the following podcast. LOL.

My Dear & South Park

my dear and the South Park

As you all realized from my several previous entries, i was all pumped up in my handmade Bumblebee. I was so determined to get it done, until a sudden request came in from my dear that she want those South Park characters to be made. Here's the end product, cute arent they?

Im creating those paper craft without any idea of who is who, and who are they. Thus, i have my girlfriend to download the animated movie for me. The whole movie is filled with "FCUK" and is highly rated "R". Definitely not for kids. Despite its crude, surreal, satirical, and dark humor, i found it hilarious to watch. Its enjoyable and contagious. LOL.

As a result, i got my decent mind contaminated with the nasty song...
"Shut your fucking face uncle fucka
You're the one that fucked your uncle, uncle fucka"

found this over the internet
from left: Stan Marsh, Kyle Brofloski, Eric Cartman and Kenny McCormick

Just for the record. If i were to ever make those four South Park characters again, would you be interested to own them? How much would you offer?

As for now... i can gladly remove the halt sign that jeopardized the progress and continue with my Bumblebee left arm!

South Park - Kenny McCormick

Kenneth "Kenny" McCormick almost always wears an orange parka. orange trousers, and brown gloves. Almost all of the time, Kenny has his hood on so that only his eyes and nose are visible. He is muffled when he speaks, and we are left only to guess at what he has said.

Kenny is the unlucky one and dies a different way in nearly each episode. His family is one of the poorest families in South Park and lives in a run-down shack with his violent and drunken family. Kenny is the most sexually knowledgeable of the group, and is probably the most perverted.

To UEFA, Where Is The Consistency?

I guess many had read about the news on Eduardo was condemned with 2 Champions League (CL) matches ban. Reports to articles, fans to journalists, claimed that he dived to earn a penalty for his team. The Celtic goalkeeper, Artur Boruc plead for mercy as there was no contact made upon the opposite forward, but the theater of act from Eduardo had gained the upper hand from the referee.

The match ended with Arsenal FC won by 3 goals to 1, which saw them qualified into the Champions League 09/10 with 5-1 on aggregate. As a result, the Scotland's being too unhappy with the outcome, decided to clinch on their feminine side and make Arsenal's life miserable by bombarding all the media that Eduardo should be banned from Champions League.

The UEFA Champions League had a meeting last Monday, and concluded that he will be banned for 2 upcoming Champions League matches in just 50 minutes of discussion, after rejecting their 19-pages defense of the Croatia international. Eventually it lead to a scene and created uproar back in Ashburton Grove and among all its supporters. No doubt Arsene Wenger stressed on fair play many years ago, but the decision by the UEFA CL is indeed injustice and is overwhelmed by emotions rather than being rational and logical.

"I think it is difficult with diving. Sometimes players dive to escape being hit. It's not always necessarily diving because you want to dive. Sometimes it's a way of getting out of the way.

"The borderline between being sensible, being shrewd or being a cheat is very slim so, in some cases, to assess which is which is very difficult.

"Uefa have made the case of Eduardo. If you watch the Super Cup on Friday then they will have to charge (Lionel) Messi for headbutting or they will lose credibility. They have opened something there that over the weekend I'll find you 50 situations where they can intervene, or if they don't Eduardo will be singled out for being a wrong victim. I do not want Messi to be punished but if they go for Eduardo then people will demand it. Pedro, also of Barcelona, dived as well [in the Super Cup] and so I don't think there's any logic to Eduardo's case. We have clear proof that from behind he was touched on his right leg.

"There is no common sense. I believe it was a more emotional decision really because if UEFA had said before the season starts, 'Listen, let's get together and no matter what happens in UEFA games, if we suspect someone of diving he will be punished' then you could say, OK, we've always been told they will do that. But suddenly, out from nowhere because it was an emotional situation in Scotland, we have this situation and have to live with that."

Just to make the matter worst, Eduardo did not appeal for a foul nor a penalty when he dived!

Being an Arsenal fan, i could easily identify that its a dive the moment i watch it from the reverse angle. To me, YES, yes Eduardo should be punished. And im quite disagree with it as i felt things should only remain in the pitch. However, why is it they 'witch-hunt' Eduardo or Arsenal FC? Why this instance? Because the Scottish couldnt dealt with their lost like how man do, but to infect the others?

Arsene Wenger, generally known as The Professor later said, "We have been deeply frustrated by the perfunctory and apparently arbitrary process that UEFA has followed in this instance. We believe it is imperative that UEFA’s explanation for its decision provides clear and comprehensive standards that will be consistently enforced. It is also critical that Uefa provides specific details of the processes it plans to adopt in reviewing all games under its jurisdiction."

Arsenal will have until early next week to lodge an appeal as UEFA rules dictate they have three working days from receipt of the reasoned explanation to form a counter argument but the tone of their statement makes it all but certain the ban will be contested.

If the appeal didnt get through, i believe the UEFA is going to have a busy schedule ahead entertaining all the challenges from football clubs on decision made by the referee that goes against them. If im part of the UEFA governing body, i would rather hire 2 extra linesmen on the sidelines at each of the respective goalpost to provide a better coverage and inject the match with more accurate decision.

As one of the fan commented, "Arsenal should just accept the punishment and then hire an independent body to closely watch all future UEFA, Champions League matches. If any player so much as stumbles without contact then he should be banned for two matches. If not Arsenal should sue UEFA for double standards and take Platini's balls as trophies."

LOL. Well said...

South Park - Stan Marsh

Stan is a normal, average, American, mixed-up kid. Though he's dealing with an alocholic father and a crazy sister, his home life is still fairly normal. When the crazy things happen in South Park he's usually the one who brings a sane voice into the mix. Stan has asthma, a gay dog named "Sparky", and was crazy in love with Wendy Testaburger; he experienced significant trauma after she dumped him.

Whether it's something as noble as leading his friends on a mission to return a goat to Afghanistan, or as simple as breaking into a secret military base to recover his Okama Gamesphere, Stan almost always tries to do the right thing.

Be a man, do the right thing...
