Yet to decide which of the remaining three trips I will be travelling by air.

Chelsea vs Man Utd....

Man Utd won 3-2 against AC Milan at Home. (Man Utd 1-up)

Chelsea won 1-0 against Liverpool at Home. (Chelsea 1-up)

Even though the results are in favour of Man Utd and Chelsea progressing to the Final in Athens, both teams' confidence levels and progression outlooks are totally different.

For Man Utd, everyone (team, manager, fans, media, etc) is fully confident that they will topple AC Milan at the San Siro next week and progress to the Final. However,on the Chelsea side, most people don't have the confidence that the Blues will win or draw at Anfield even though they are currently one up against the Kop. Pundits have favoured Liverpool to progress.....

Why is this happening? Is it due to the dominance of MU players in the PFA Team selection? Is it due to Cristiano Ronaldo sweeping 3 awards recently? Is it due to the lack of attacking power from the Blues?

Pundits and football analyst have highlighted that Jose Mourinho is feeling the heat, no longer from the boardroom, but from Man Utd and Liverpool. They said he is feeling nervous, which is very rare for a man who can 'smell' what will happen in the future. With only so few games remaining in the Premiership, the title race is nearing its climax and only the 'smartest' team will win it.

So, who will we see in the Finals in May? Lets find out next week.

Music and Lyrics....

Movie Title: Music and Lyrics

Starring : Hugh Grant, Drew Barrymore, Haley Bennett
Genre : Music, Comedy, Romance

Just watched this movie with my darling, and we loved it.

Hugh Grant is just so smooth and the scripts were perfectly written for him. The music was great and we learned a little more about the world of pop music.

Haley Bennett, who plays Cora Corman is hot, very hot indeed for a girl her age. I think the Malaysian censorship board might censor some of her scenes.

Recommended movie for couples and Hugh Grant fans. Overall a very good movie. No cheesy or lame lines or scenes, thoroughly entertaining.

My Rating: 4.5 of 5

First time ever....

I drove back from KL to Penang today, and for the first time I adhered to the speed limit (even the 60km/h ones). Well, I did this because I wanted to see how long will I take to reach Penang on a legal speed :)

Usually, it will take around 3 hours 30 minutes to reach Penang from KL (from the Kerinchi Link). Today, it took 5 hours. I didn't mind the travel time, but the drive was stressful.

On the highway, NOBODY, and I mean NOBODY travels at a constant 110km/h. Everyone either travels around 95km/h or way above 110km/h. Its so difficult to keep to a single lane since our 'world-class' highways are only 2 lanes wide. On some instances, I nearly fell asleep 'cos the drive was so boring because at 110km/h, there is totally no sense of speed and no body-roll when taking a corner.

Well, on the plus side, the fuel consumption of my car was low and returned an impressive 14.7km/l. (I usually get around 10km/l).

PC Fair 2007....

Haih... went to the PC Fair 2007 in KLCC today, was expecting to see something good..... but there wasn't anything good. (actually couldn't see a thing, was too crowded... promoter girls weren't attractive either....)

Anyway, I have made up my own stats about why people go to PC Fair:

10% Go there to purchase IT-related stuff.

10% Go there to check out new stuff.

5% Go there for the female promoters.

15% Go there for the sake of keeping up with whatever other people are doing.

30% Go there to 'walk-walk'.

And the rest (remaining 30%) are there just to accompany whoever that makes up the stats for any of the above.

This is just so irritating. There was a couple with a very young baby (maybe around 3 months old), and the baby was screaming his/her head off because the baby made a doo-doo (anybody within a 300 meter radius could smell). This is just plain stupid. Why can't the husband just leave the wife and baby at home when he knows they will be coming to a very crowded and noisy place? Farking idiot. Want a family outing? Go to a fun-fair or go to the beach. Anyway, malays can picnic anywhere, even beside a public toilet.

Anyway, bought a few ink cartridges for my printer and subscribed to TIME magazine, with a free 1-year subscription to FORTUNE mag as well.

Well, PC Fair really sucks.
