To go or not to go...that is the question...
Recently I heard some things about you, about your past. You were one of the best in your trade, a pleasure to work with, and enjoyable to be around. Needless to say I'm not the only one with emotional ties to you. So when the time came for you to move on to the next phase of your life, I was not the only one with a lump in my throat.
But the time had to come for you to get off at your stop. As the song goes, 'it's the same old train, it's just a different time.' And one day we'll all have to get off at our station. But while we're still on the train, we'll always remember you.
Rest In Peace.
"I arrived at Changi Airport two nights ago and my friend was driving me around town when I saw along the road 'Celebrating the Singapore Spirit'. So I asked my friend, 'What is the Singapore Spirit?' He turned around and asked his wife, 'Eh, what is the Singapore Spirit ah?' and she replied, 'Dunno!' Maybe they should have a conference like the one we're having now; they'll hold workshops and seminars and discussions about the Singapore Spirit!"
He couldn't have said it any better. Which brings me to the question...what IS the Singapore Spirit?!?
...Russia?!? Or so my PES 6 simulation suggests. Well it's already gotten the Portugal v Germany result wrong so I'm not buying it...but if they really do win, you read it here first!
For the record, I'm tipping Croatia to win =D
I was just going through my archives while organising my portfolio when I came across these two photographs. A record of my past, a glimpse into my future...
As everyone knows, I'm not a big fan of spam, but once in a while something comes along that's worth a read.
I knelt to pray but not for long,
I had too much to do.
I had to hurry and get to work
For bills would soon be due.
So I knelt and said a hurried prayer,
And jumped up off my knees
My Christian duty was now done
My soul could rest at ease.
All day long I had no time
To spread a word of cheer.
No time to speak of Christ to friends,
They'd laugh at me I'd fear.
No time, no time, too much to do,
That was my constant cry,
No time to give to souls in need
But at last the time, the time to die.
I went before the Lord!
I came, I stood with downcast eyes.
For in his hands God held a book;
It was the book of life.
God looked into his book and said
'Your name I cannot find.
I once was going to write it down...
But never found the time'
(Liverpool vs Porto)
Martin Tyler: The referee today is Roberto Rosetti. He's a trained doctor, a trained physiotherapist, so he'll be able to assess any injured players on the pitch in the course of the match.
Andy Gray: He's also a trained referee too, mate!
Melvin: Wow, I didn't know Lays was more expensive than Ruffles!
Alvin: Yeah, that's because Lays is a premium brand.
M: Let's look at Pringles...
A: Pringles should be around the same price as the Ruffles. These are the midrange brands, the Volkswagens and Fords of potato chips.
M: Oh my look at the price of these Lays Kettle Cooked chips!
A: My gosh, this must be the Rolls Royce of potato chips. The normal Lays should be the Mercedes, BMWs. Of course on this side are the more budget chips, the Toyotas and Protons and Geelys. That's why we're buying so many of them.
M: How do you think our youths like Twisties?
A: Well they're ok; and not too expensive. They are also midrange, a bit lower-end though, more like your Citroens and Skodas and...
M: OK ENOUGH WITH THE METAPHORS ALREADY!!!
...well, yeah, that's the problem. We don't have a name yet. We have a young developing team, matches planned against St. John's Chapel and St. Matthew's Church, as well as a spanking new jersey...
And yet we don't have a name. Well, I guess I'll have to turn to my healthy number of blog readers for a vote. What shall we call our football club? I've thought of some suggestions...
- Synthesis FC
- Synthesis United
- Synthesis Rovers
- Synthesis Wanderers
- Synthesis Athletic
- Synthesis Borough
- Synthesis Albion
- Synthesis Rangers
- Synthesis Harriers
- Synthesis Sunday
Hmm...maybe we'll even go continental for this one...
- Atlético Synthesis
- Real Synthesis
- FC Synthesis
- Recreativo Synthesis
- Sporting Synthesis
- Gimnàstic de Synthesis
- Synthesis Calcio
- Olympique Synthesis
My, my the choices. Any suggestions or votes...the tagboard is at your service.
Who cares if we just lost to Chelsea, with a song like this, all hope is restored...
Then you definitely cannot miss Fusion 2007!
