Manchester United – 4 Everton – 0

17/09/2017 Leave a comment

In a couple of hours time, Manchester United will be facing Everton. It will be an emotional game (I think) for two players on each of the opposing teams. First of all, for Wayne Rooney, it will be a return to his old stomping ground, Old Trafford. On the other hand, Romelu Lukaku will be facing his old club, Everton. Everton got quite a shock mid last week when they lost to an Italian club in the Europa League so Ronald Koeman will be desperate to make up for that loss. Manchester United, on the other hand, will be trying to make up the goal difference that Manchester City has over them, after the six goal drubbing of Watford yesterday. So, call it what you will, but this is going to be one intense match!

********** EDITOR’S NOTE after the match **********

What a game it was! Antonio Valencia started the scoring with a thunderous volley in the opening minutes of the game. This was followed by an almost goal in the 64th minute when Juan Mata took a free kick which hit the post! Damn. We could have been two up by then but it was not mean to be. But that changed in the 82nd minute when Henrikh Mkhitaryan scored the second goal! Lovely interception by Fellaini that helped it! But that was not all. In the 89th minute, Lukaku took a free kick that bounced off the wall, got bandied around and made it’s way back to Lukaku who scored! 3 – 0! I was going crazy! But that is not all. Martial comes on and then there was a penalty for united when one of our ex-players Morgan Schneiderlin was caught with a handball. A bit unfair if you ask me because the referee pointed to the spot. Martial converted it and it was a final 4 – 0 score!

It was a bit sad when the camera panned towards Rooney a few times. he looked a bit upset to see his team being decimated at his old stomping ground. But that is football. 4 – 0 is the score. Glory glory!

Yep. The bloody F1 is here again

And I here I thought we were going to tell Bernie Ecclestone and his group of organisers that they could go forth and multiply. Apparently, no, because the damn F1 is here again. Say hello to weeks of bus diversions, inconvenience around the pit area in Shenton Way, air pollution, expensive food and drink trackside and a whole lot more. Don’t believe me? Check out this one for proof. This company Saybons (who make overpriced French food by the way) charge $10 per crepe and $12 per can of beer. To say nothing about $12 mee goreng at that place too. That is why I have never supported this F1 thingy in Singapore since the start and I am not about to support it now. It is just a waste of time

Rest in peace Harry Dean Stanton

I am pretty sad to hear about Harry Dean Stanton’s passing at the age of 91. I first came across him in Repo Man and I saw that he had acted in many shows in his acting career. He acted in Combat!, Fire Down Below, Pretty In Pink, just to name a few. The man even had his own band! Debbie Harry even saw it fit to name a song after him. Rest in peace Mr Stanton

Inconsiderate people leaving trash on buses

16/09/2017 Leave a comment

That is what I faced when i got on the bus yesterday. As soon as I sat down and looked on the floor, I saw this. someone had left a milky substance on the bus and it had apparently leaked from the plastic bag it was in and all over the floor. And the person who left it there did not even have the common decency to take it off the bus. Now here you have a bus full of liquid on the floor and the cleaner is going to have a field day. I just wish that people would be considerate and not just dump their garbage where they feel like it. It just makes things harder for other people.

Huawei E5785Lh-22c 4G router

I have been using this 4G router at the construction site of a project I am working on as they have no wi-fi there. I need wi-fi to check on emails and browse the web, especially when it comes to searching for information and downloading new drawings that architects send me. This 4G router is built very well and the signal strength of this thing is strong! I am seriously contemplating getting one for myself but at the present moment, my TP-Link one suits me just fine. Maybe next time!

Frank Vincent dead at 80 years old

14/09/2017 Leave a comment

I still remember being introduced to Frank Vincent as an actor who played the character Billy Batts in Goodfellas. I remember him telling Joe Pesci (who played Tommy) to go home and get his shinebox. He also had a memorable performance in Raging Bull in 1980. Rest in peace Frank. From what I read about your private life, people are sad to lose a lovely guy. Now go home and get your shinebox!

Kentucky Fried Chicken has shrunk in size

14/09/2017 Leave a comment

My wife and I ate at Kentucky Fried Chicken (KFC) a couple of days back and I can say that I am very disappointed with the size and portions of KFC nowadays. It looks like the chicken has shrunk in size. I wonder…are they using spring chickens now? All of a sudden, going to KFC for dinner or lunch is purely not worth it at all if that is the size of the chicken in a two-course meal
