Mom's Birthday - 07/02/09

Ermmm kinda belated but due to insufficient diskspace.. :'( this post is way behind... but still, here it is.. We surprised Mom on her birthday, the same date my uncle had their wedding. While Mom was busy, we sneaked up on her and brought out the birthday cake and everyone sang. She was shocked and I could see tears... tears of happiness.. welled up in her eyes... because we, the family remembered in the midst of the busy wedding schedule. *Of course I remember my mom's birthday!*

THE RIVALS MATCH!! - 14/03/09

Watched the LIVE telecast match of the Rivals Match: Manchester United (home) against Liverpool at my house last Saturday night and due to demand from the uncles and cousins, I connected ESPN to the 42" LCD TV in the TV room.

Man U's 1st (penalty kick) goal *sound of cricket* it was quiet as we're all Liverpool fans, except for 2 of my uncles.

Liverpool's 1st goal

Liverpool's 2nd goal

This was when Vidic of Man U was given a red card.

Liverpool's 3rd goal

1 minute to go and Liverpool scored their 4th and final goal...

The cousins and uncles cheering for Liverpool watching the replay of the 4th goal

It was fun... for us. As I couldn't find the 2 uncles (Man U fans) after that. LOL.... ;p

And I have a live update in facebook (my status) for my friend (who was working that night) and my cousins (who couldn't watch due to no reception at their house). They should've come over and watched with us. 1-4 was the score. Next match, Liverpool vs Chelsea.

You'll Never Walk Alone

When you walk through a storm hold your head up high
And don't be afraid of the dark.
At the end of a storm is a golden sky
And the sweet silver song of a lark.
Walk on through the wind,
Walk on through the rain,
Tho' your dreams be tossed and blown.
Walk on, walk on with hope in your heart
And you'll never walk alone,
You'll never, ever walk alone.

Walk on, walk on with hope in your heart
And you'll never walk alone,
You'll never, ever walk alone.

BFF 2nd Anniversary

Group photo by airbiscuit

Happy 2nd Anniversary to Brunei Forever Forum the Sharp Shooters Heaven also known as BFF. An online photography forum which I'm proud to be part of. It's actually an unofficial, virtual, non-profitable organisation where photographers of all ages join, learn, do outings and have fun... the first in Brunei... really and we have the biggest member *I think* in the nation.

Although we celebrated earlier on the 8th of March, last Sunday but the forum was born 2 years ago today. On the 12th of March 2007. I'm glad I joined in 2 years ago and made lots of friends, learnt a lot on photography as well as photo editing technique.

On behalf of BFF, I would like to say a big thank you to Sugar & Spice for sponsoring the venue and food for all of us. The service was great, everything I asked for was there on the dot. The place was good, very warm environment for the whole family especially us cheerful lots and the food was simply delicious. I especially love the Chicken Shawarma and Humus as well as the Beef Kofta. I would surely come back for more. So do come to Sugar & Spice for a taste of their wonderful exotic arabic food. Especially for family dining.

If only Chef Ridhwan was there, but he was not able to be present as he was away for the launching of Aladdin *a Sugar & Spice franchise* in Kota Kinabalu, *WOW!* expanding the business abroad.
