They said you don’t win English Premier League in February. However, the way Manchester United is playing and how Man City is collapsing at the moment; you don’t see the League title going anywhere but to Old Trafford. It looks like the first part of the Treble is all but in the bag and the bookmakers have begun to pay out for bets on Manchester United to regain their Premier League title after Sir Alex Ferguson’s team finished the weekend 12 points ahead of their city rivals, with only 12 games to go. Well, the Red Devils may have blown an eight-point lead with six games to go last term, but the clinical manner of yesterday win showed they are not in the mood to make the same mistake twice. I certainly hope they won’t!
If Manchester United go on and win their 20th EPL title this season, then many will point out to the signing of Robin Van Persie (RVP) at the start of the season as one of the major factor. The Dutchman has scored 23 goals from 30 appearances since leaving Arsenal for Manchester United. Little wonder he was given No. 20 shirt by the club. He certainly plays a huge part in bringing title No. 20 to Old Trafford. Continue reading
Hansel & Gretel
The day I went to the cinema, Rotten Tomatoes average reviews have rated the movie Hansel & Gretel, featuring Jeremy Renner and Gemma Arterton, a dismal 18%. But the reviewer in Cinema Online has given it a 4 star rating. Rather than watching ‘The Last Stand’ and ‘Bullet Head’, I took my chance and sat at the GSC cinema at 1Borneo Hypermall, watching Hansel & Gretel. I think there were barely 10 people with me inside the theatre. My 1 hour and 37 minutes were not wasted.
Directed by Tommy Wirkola, this Paramount Pictures / MGM fantasy supernatural action movie did not disappoint me. Sure it’s illogical. The superhuman prowess of the main characters was unbelievable. But the same can be said for Thor, Iron Man, etc. It’s a movie, a make-believe world. I could think of worst, such as, well, I’d rather not say. Continue reading
Well, I did not attend “Sepetang Bersama Blogger 2013” (SBB 2013) though I wish I did. Honestly, I don’t feel disheartened about it or jealous seeing other people enjoying the big event but after reading several postings by bloggers that attended the annual blogger gathering, I feel like writing something about it.

Lately, I read fewer stories on politics and concentrate on other things that I enjoy more. However, I have many friends that are involved in politics and help me keep abreast with what’s happening in the country especially with the 13th GE ‘just around the corner’ (how many times have this phrase been repeated?). Some even asked my opinion about certain issues like the RCI and Kalimah Allah. Continue reading
