Assalamu'alaikum.....ada orang kat rumah...? Lama betul tak jenguk ke sini...( bahasa melayu pulak..hehehe...)

Well, actually today is not really a happy day, I was partially heartbroken....why...? Portugal lost their semis, of course, the only saving grace is they lost to Spain, another favorite of mine and they fought all the way up till the penalty shoot out.

During Europe war period, I have been pretty occupied keeping myself up to date on the games and scores. Despite being in the group of death (again!!) Portugal really showed their true capabilities. C.Ronaldo did well as captain, but its not a one man show. I think critics would tend to agree that this Portugal team are among the best that they have seen with Pepe & Fábio Coentrão holding the fort tightly at the back. Solid defending, even the German attacking machine only managed to score once.

I've said this since 2004, they just need to have a better finishing. No doubt C.Ronaldo did managed to score, some good ones I might say, but they still lacking on forward. Nani has been slightly under the radar, but still very helpful with the passes. The best forward that they have maybe Helder Postiga, but still needs more polishing. Too bad my favorite no. 6 Carvalho was not playing, else it would have been more interesting, especially for last night's game against Spain, where most of their teammates from Galacticos were playing :P

Anyhoo....I was entertained in all the games, especially with fluid movements of João Moutinho & Raul Meireles, indeed a world class performance.

I leave you with my closing statement. I love Portugal since.....2000 (I think). Way before C.Ronaldo make headlines worldwide. I supported them since the days of Pauleta was their top scorer, since Luis Figo was not the most cap holder, since João Pinto was among their biggest star, and even since my first ever Portuguese crush was on top of his form, who else, Nuno Gomes. So kids, Christiano Ronaldo did not seal the deal...I was a fan way back when.. :)

the magnificent 11!!

June is here!! :)

Warning : this is not an educational post :P

Its my month!! Many happy things happen this month. In school, there used to be not less than 10 of us celebrating birthday this month. So a whole bunch of Geminis and Cancerians will be happy this month. For me, personally, many life events also happened this month. I celebrated my work anniversary this months :) I made my umrah trip, and my world cup trip also in the month of June. For the past two cycles, the company's major turn around was also scheduled in June, and I get a surprised birthday celebration in one of the occasion :D. Well, that was the story from 4 years ago.....sigh....I am the company I mean!!

Do you know that June is known for the large number of marriages? Yes, it is, it occurs over the course of the month. According to one etymology, June is named after Juno (Hera). Juno was the goddess of marriage and a married couple's household, so some consider it good luck to be married in this month.[1] -

This is from wikipedia of course, for Malaysians we couldn't care less about Greek mythology, its school holiday, and that is why your mailbox will be jammed with invites comes June...and this is why you keep seeing June babies increasing, year in and year out :P

For my friends out there celebrating birthdays in June, HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!! may Allah grant you his utmost blessing and a fruitful year ahead ;)
