Wonder World Cup



A celebration we've long await, bringing back the joy and tears 4 years ago. This time, again, we experience something different, and expect the unexpected. An action that's all about strength, stamina, speed, analyze... and did some beautiful footwork to bring the Adidas Jabulani into the back of the net. YES! The South Africa's FIFA World Cup 2010!!

For me, this championship is really thrilling. Usually, you can differentiate which team is stronger depends on the players, team history and the team manager. I'll tell you what. Everything is a lie when they're playing on the pitch. Even the lucks and referees can decide a game. It's not how a star player's experience or killing act or what, it's about the spirit and the best you can perform. Really!~

If you ask me which team I curse, I'll tell you... there's none. All the teams that qualifying for this final round, means they're working really hard. They deserve to gain the respect from all the people of the world.

About the team I support the MOST... Netherlands.


But here it's quite pity to herd that Netherlands took the runner-up. But for me, they're trying the best, doing the best and expecting the best. Love those spirit the team have.
The Netherlands are not always at their best at big tournaments but this time they've make a difference with a lot of creativity in midfield and across the front line. Creative players like Robin van Persie, Wesley Sneijder and Arjen Robben stand up and be counted at this World Cup. When it doesn't work with creativity there is always Dirk Kuyt, the workhorse of the team.


And that, had gain more respect to to him, Dirk Kuyt~
- tiredness running
- play logically(do what he should do)
- trying hard to get the ball back to possession(even form GK)
- surprise sudden attack
- assist
- good try for troubling opponent's GK
- VERY HARDWORKING!!!!


+ Deserve to be the 1st choice Goalkeeper of oranje due to his consistency - Stekelenburg.
+ Clinical defence by Heitinga and Mathijsen, important clearance and tackle.
+ De Jong is a short but though midfielder! He gave all his best shot on stopping opponent's possession and gain in back.


+ some technical dribbling from Robben to confused the opponent, 'NOS' running and dangerous cross from the outside the box.


+ killing spot kick from Sneidjer, shoot from distance, smashing shot to win a dramatic match.


And very happy to found out a future talent like Eljero Elia, Van der Wiel, Di Maria from Argentina, Thomas Muller form Germany and Valter Birsa from Slovenia. Surely they can be the bright star in the future.



Meanwhile, there's some team I'm impress by their playing for trying to land the bast place in World Cup. Ghana, Ivory Coast, Germany, Japan, Korea Republic, Mexico, Slovakia, Slovenia, South Africa, USA and Uruguay. Certainly amaze by their performance and entertaining "Giant Killing" match!~



And for me to "haiz" for, is Italy, Frace and England. A little disappointed for the flop which they gone through.


For other teams like Argentina, Brazil, Cameroon, Denmark and Portugal. They should done better and play better next time with those star player in their team.


The unforgettable match for me... hmm...

I would say when Argentina against Germany. It's rare to see the "Argh" being triumph like that by the "Germs's" possession. 4-0 le~ A big win... I watch that match with my brother and our friends in Mamak food court. So, it a lot livelier and I simply enjoy myself in that.


&&


The match of Brazil against Netherlands. Venue: My room. Attender: N and his brother. Live: PC live streaming
Yes, another dramatic and bounce back win for Netherlands, 2-1. This is a very important game for them. Still remember from the start, Robinho's early attempt really shock me. And it cost a goal for Brazil and Neth need to bounce back. I though Neth's tour would stop here. Certainly it's NOT!! Seems like the Neth's position is shaking after Kaka and Dani Alves's try. But the Neth come back with a stunning distance goal by Sneidjer. Yes, we're happy about that. After some struggling, Robben create a chance by corner and again, "GOAL!!!" Sneidjer head for points. We're so happy that Neth can defend against the unbeatable. We scream happily.



And about the champs, Spain. They deserved to win this tournament with such powerful squad. There's star player everywhere, even in the bench. But looking for news and article, seems they're overestimated them. They shouldn't lose to a team like Switzerland and should win big. They just win their last four match 1-0. Still, this monster squad can be improved.


And it's important for us to grade this... ENJOY~



About the player I'm impress, there are a few. Diego Forlan, Luis Suarez, Keisuke Honda, Robert Vittek, Landon Donovan, Luis Fabiano and David Villa. The dangerous predator in this tournament.



Between, for such a small country like Netherlands, you defend very well into the final and I'm impress. Become stronger 4 years later!! Believe ya~



Write the future~

Around the 'Private Corner'



神,香港媒体是这般称呼他的。予我, 他只不过是个爱唱歌,而且把歌唱得很好的人。至于封好,是沉重的身外物,更是混肴视听的根源。张学友说,做音乐很难,而他只想纯粹的唱歌。

这张澳语专辑《Private Corner》让我苦等了四年,累积的期待超越了世界杯的发烧程度。TARA LABS 铜线录音带来技术成面的突破。以 Live 形式,把歌手与乐器安排在同一空间,同步录音,把录音室里每一个角落的细致都送到你的听觉神经内,更清楚感受到乐器、乐手、乐章的生命力。

蓝调爵士乐,实力歌手们都争相挑战的曲风,学友也走了这一步。音乐不外是十二个音的组合学问,学友还是学友,有趣的是歌序。歌序,就是歌曲在专辑中播放的先后次序。就像一场响宴,从 appetizer 到主菜,然后甜点,自有规则可循。然而,自数码科技打入音乐市场后,改变了听歌的习惯。把几张专辑的歌曲拷贝成一张杂镖CD,或者把几百首毫无关系的音乐上载到MP3里,打乱了音乐的纹路,养育了一个失序的音乐生态。


把播放器设定成Random play,将《Private Corner》专辑中的9首全新澳语新歌随意播放,大胆地解除了规则与次序的魔咒。〈不只有缘〉、〈迷你〉、〈找对你〉、〈伯爵茶〉、〈十二个音〉、〈恋上你背面〉...... 歌曲与歌词的互动相当微妙。〈月巴女且〉,看来奇怪歌名,四个单字结合成对 “肥姐” 的怀念,有些感情非生死可磨灭的。

以桌上的一片 Dark Chocolate Mint、一杯咖啡或红酒,躲进私人角落,再没有人看见你的时候,慢慢地放松紧绷的情绪,把压力与烦忧都丢掉,慢慢的聆听张学友,平静而温暖,全是监制杜自持的一番苦心。
