Just got back from Kota Kinabalu a couple of hours ago.

Cilakaknye, banyak sales but my budget sik cukup. I wonder what did i blow my previous month's salary on? Regrets, regrets.

Anyhows...I GOT INTO KPLI!!! WOOHOO!!! I surfed the Ministry of Education's website as early as 5am using my mobile phone after waking up to go pee. So I'll be registering for the course on the 14th of next month at IPS in Miri.

That time of the year

No, I don't mean Christmas.

I'm talking aboout Manchester United vs Liverpool. The big game will be on Sunday night at Anfield. As a devout and extreme United fan, this is the fixture you look forward to whenever the season fixtures are released. And this season's fixture couldn't have come at a better time, about a week before Christmas. The rivalry is so huge and intense that the result of the match could either make or break your week, depending which side you are rooting for.

For myself, this game could influence my mood for the following week. On the 19th, I will know whether I have successfully enter the KPLI programme. So I'm hoping for positive results for both events.

This weekend's match will be really big compared to those for the past couple of seasons. Liverpool in all its stinkiness, looks to be a more formidable this season with Torres upfront. Torres, how I have dreamt and fantasized about him joining United before he broke my heart. No, I'm not gay, I'm just a football fanatic, so mind the corny language.

As a team, I don't really know how good they are because I don't watch Liverpool games, they are mostly too dull to endure.

On the other hand, I am confident that United will be able to triumph if not match the Scousers on Sunday. In Hargreaves, I have never seen such a dynamic midfielder who has tremendous energy, physical presence and decent technique in a United shirt for some time. With him and Anderson, they will be more than a match for Stevie G in that potential midfield battle. Talking about Anderson, I just love that kid. He had a poor start to his Old Trafford career, but the Wigan game seemed to be the turnaround. His performances has been so consistently good that I don't miss Scholesy.

At the back, we're very solid with the Vidic and Rio partnership. Both very quick centerbacks who are also very comfortable with the ball. Upfront, we have the Trinity of Rooney, Ronaldo and Tevez, good enough to take on the world's best defences to say the very least.
As for my prediction, like Ndru I would say it will be a very close game, with United winning 3-1.
