Random Thoughts

It's been a while since my last post. Not really busy for last 2 weeks, but sometimes just too lazy to update ya know? Must be the KL weather, been so gloomy and rainy for past few weeks. "Blame it on the Rain, yay yay.." Remember this song?

Anyway, today I feel good. Especially knowing that Liverpool just got their 5th straight wins this season, beating Sunderland 2-0 this morning. Great job guys!

Speaking of football, I got to know that Nolberto Solano of Newcastle has his own salsa band, and he actually plays the trumpet! Talented chap indeed. I do enjoy watching him play sometimes. He's one of the few unselfish, clean and humble player that I noticed in the EPL. Perhaps he mixes his salsa skills into his game, no?

The image above, and all below, were obtained from Getty Images, which is one of my favourite daily reads. Getty Images provides up-to-the-minute images of the latest news, sport and entertainment events as they unfold around the world. Lots of their collection are award-winning photography materials. Very exclusive and the best thing is you may view all of them free.

It keeps me updated of things happening around the world, and believe me, picture speaks louder than words! Something that I've seen and learn today:

1. Robots that can dance.

Partner Ballroom Dance Robots (PBDR) of robotic venture Nomura Unison dances with a man during 2005 International Robot Exhibition in Tokyo

2. The first black archbishop in England. Very significant indeed. Something like appointing an ang moh for Shaolin Temple high-ranked master, no?

The Church of England celebrated the appointment of its first black archbishop at York Minster by enthroning Dr. John Sentamu as Archbishop of York. Dr. Sentamu now has the second highest post in the Church of England

3. The Santa is coming! Rockefellar Center. Takes my breath away. One of my must-visit places if I go NYC.

The 73rd annual Rockefeller Center tree lighting ceremony takes place in New York City

4. Galerie Lafayette is freakin cool!

Don't speak French? Go translate yourself heehee.

On the same note, when I realized X'mas is coming, I can't help but to remember the tragic tsunami that happened on the Boxing Day last year.

Former US President and UN special envoy for Tsunami Recovery, Bill Clinton, bows after laying a wreath at a mass grave of last year Tsunami disaster victims in Banda Aceh. As the one-year commemoration of the Tsunami approaches, Clinton visited the disaster devastated Banda Aceh

I wonder how does Banda Aceh looks now?

Meanwhile, on the same region..

Surfers pay tribute to the Bali bomb victims of October 1, as they hold hands while sitting on their boards at sunset next to the Jimbaran fish cafes on Jimbaran beach in Bali

Consider how lucky we are, despite all the corruption mayhem going on now.
