很高興又可以到倫敦去~實在是很喜歡英國,哈哈~~~

四月二十五日-四月二十八日
倫敦

星期六那天去了Stamford Bridge,做半天小球迷。

我不算球迷,也不是經常睇波;不過家俊在我出發前告訴我星期六那天會有英超的其中一場重要戲碼-車路士主場對曼聯,於是便打算到場外感受一下氣氛~真的是人山人海呢,我幾乎淹沒在藍色波衫的人群中!



只可惜我沒有門票(那是當然的啦,有很多人站在球場外,拿著牌希望有人賣票給他們!),附近的酒吧又全滿,可惜可惜!不過恭喜車仔最終贏波~~~

這次還去了看Chicago

雖然舞台細了一點(可能這是紐約和倫敦的劇場都是如此~),不過還不錯吧!我坐在第五行,看得很精彩!樂隊全坐在台上,演員全坐在台的兩邊等出場,兩個女主角的歌唱得很不錯啊!當然不得不提的是大部分角色,不論男女,他們的舞姿和舞衣都非常性感!最重要是他們跳舞很好看~

p.s. 煲了幾集《強人》,幾好睇喎!

Chelsea 2-1 Manchester United

Michael Ballack’s penalty blew the title race open as Chelsea moved level on points with leaders Manchester United with only two matches left.

Joe Cole’s shot hit the bar as United, who lost Nemanja Vidic to injury, backtracked before Ballack headed Chelsea in front on 45 minutes.

Wayne Rooney drove in the equaliser after Ricardo Carvalho’s error to put United back in the driving seat.

But after Michael Carrick handled in the area, Ballack won it from the spot.

It was the first penalty United had conceded in the league all season and could prove decisive at the end of the season when silverware is handed out.

And as United pressed at the very end of the game, it took goal-line clearances from Ashley Cole and Andriy Shevchenko to deny first Cristiano Ronaldo and then Darren Fletcher and ensure Chelsea claimed a vital three points.

Chelsea, with their inferior goal difference, knew a win was their only realistic chance of keeping alive their hopes of overhauling United – and they started the match powerfully.

Although the Blues were much the better side in the first half, Cole’s volley against the bar aside, they created few clear-cut chances.

Whether United were affected by the loss of Vidic, who was stretchered off on 11 minutes after catching a knee in the face from Drogba, is debatable.

United’s reshuffled defence, which saw substitute Owen Hargreaves come on at right-back and Wes Brown moved to centre-back, had coped well with Chelsea’s threats.

But questions will be asked as to how the German international was allowed to ghost in unmarked at the far post to score the opener.

Michael Essien’s running from deep was causing United problems, but too often the midfielder was not played in when in a good position as Chelsea made the wrong decisions.

But the power of Drogba, the combative qualities of Essien and Cole’s darting movement had United pinned back in their own half.

And when United did find an outlet, often in right winger Nani, they failed to make any impact as time and again Chelsea snuffed out a limp attack and hit back themselves.

A quiet Rooney looked isolated, and United seemed toothless without Ronaldo, who had been left on the bench.

After the interval, Chelsea again tried to pick up the pace but their game plan appeared to be in tatters when Carvalho made an awful mistake to let United back into the match.

The Portuguese defender casually played the ball towards his own goal, straight into the path of Rooney, who raced clear of John Terry and scored with an excellent low drive.

It proved to be Rooney’s last contribution as he was went off injured shortly after to be replaced by Ronaldo.

Regardless, United were now in the ascendancy and Chelsea looked shell-shocked.

Ryan Giggs had a fierce shot well saved by Petr Cech and United were stroking the ball around confidently.

Frustration was building for Chelsea and Ballack and Drogba argued with each other as they prepared to take a free-kick.

Drogba eventually took aim and was only denied by a magnificent save by Edwin van der Sar.

And there was still time for more drama as Carrick was penalised for blocking Essien’s right-wing cross with his arm.

Up stepped Ballack, who brilliantly sent the keeper the wrong way and put Chelsea back into the lead.

Yet it almost did not end there as United came so close to snatching another equaliser but Cole and Shevchenko cleared efforts off the line.

Two New Additions to Periodic Table of Elements!!!

WOMANIUM
Symbol: WO
Atomic weight: (Don’t even go there!)
Physical properties: Generally soft and round in form. Boils at nothing and may freeze any time. Melts when treated properly. Very bitter if not used well.
Chemical properties: Very active. Highly unstable. Possesses strong affinity with gold, silver, platinum, and precious stones. Violent when left alone. Able to absorb great amounts of exotic food. Turns slightly green when placed next to a better specimen.
Usage: Highly ornamental. An extremely good catalyst for dispersion of wealth. Probably the most powerful income-reducing agent known.
Caution: Highly explosive in inexperienced hands!

MANIUM
Symbol: XY
Atomic weight: (180 ± 50)
Physical properties: Solid at room temperature but gets bent out of shape easily. Fairly dense and sometimes flaky. Difficult to find a pure sample. Due to rust, aging samples are unable to conduct electricity as easily as young samples.
Chemical properties: Attempts to bond with WO any chance it can get. Also tends to form strong bonds with itself. Becomes explosive when mixed with KD (Element: Childium) for prolonged period of time. Neutralize by saturating with alcohol.
Usage: None known. Possibly good methane source. Good samples are able to produce large quantities on command.
Caution: In the absence of WO, this element rapidly decomposes and begins to smell.

 

昨天執屋時找到這封印了出來的電郵,那是高中年代阿恣forward的電郵呢,現在再看仍然覺得很有趣。

今天天氣差了很多,天陰陰又大風。慶幸昨天的天氣很不錯!

父母昨天都放假,便即興的帶了他們和三哥去大嶼山逛逛,去對他們來說久違了的寶蓮寺,也試試昂坪360

自己不是第一次坐昂坪纜車,反而家人卻是第一次,大家都異常興奮,哈哈。上次我坐纜車時很大霧,今次天氣好多了,景色怡人。纜車越過彌勒山後,再也看不到東涌和機場,換上一大片的綠油油和遙遙在望的天壇大佛,感覺很好!更好的是這天是平日,並沒有太多人爭相湧到昂坪去,即使是寶蓮寺也不算是人頭湧湧。


我的爸爸媽媽

遊過天壇大佛之後,我們又去了心經簡林~


置身簡林裡,對著鳳凰山和大海,感覺很好!


鳳凰山下的鳳凰


鳳凰觀日-啊!我還未到過鳳凰山看日出呢!

下山之後我們又即興的到了國泰城。(這是我臨時建議的,本來也沒有這樣想過,只是打算回公司拿那一箱子的manuals回來;後來又想可以帶他們入公司參觀一下也不錯,於是大家就坐巴士入去逛逛了。)到了公司裡的Cathay Pacific Experience,那是今年新開的展覽,可是我也是第一次進去呢!


媽媽好像對這款舊制服情有獨鍾!

最後再帶大家坐公司車到二號客運大樓,再吃了一個下午茶才回家去~

以往陪伴父母的時間實在太少,今年開始不同了。我要帶他們到處去。

雖然如此,但是這次的香港-新加坡-可倫坡-新加坡-香港總算不錯,至少比預期之中好得多了!

最重要是這一程機大部分同事都很好玩,大家一起出去吃飯說笑,很開心。老總很好人也很supportive;FP6 Ricky、J1 Gary之前飛過,很nice;拍擋們Gina、Sindy、Phoebe、Cindy、Sunny都很好玩,因此儘管第一程機有些不愉快事件發生(多得一些Singapore-based阿姐,幸好只是對一程),但一切仍然順順利利。更開心的是新加坡-可倫坡-新加坡的乘客不多,舒服地通了一個頂。

最大件事只是最後一天,本來是一早回程由新加坡回香港的,但竟然得悉航機延誤到晚上十一時多,真係啤一聲-如果不是我們收不到wake up call而打給接待處的話,我們是不知道航機延誤的!幸好最後本來的乘客都被安排到其他航班,本來我們是full load的,結果變成一個乘客都沒有!哈哈哈!起飛後大夥兒還一起開派對,玩非洲話事啤

最後凌晨三點半才回到香港,坐的士回家去~

Rest in peace, my beloved sports anchor…

I was so shocked. Last night when I was working in the flight from Singapore to Colombo, I helped my colleague to set up the newspaper trolley. It was totally a coincident that I read the headline of Apple Daily when I first knew my beloved sports anchor passed away with his untimely acute leukemia. I nearly cried. I have been looking forward to seeing him in 2008 Olympics. Now his unique style of reporting sports news could only retrieved by memory. Rest in peace.

上星期收到李駿遠同學的媽媽電話,知道小學校友會舉辦了一個與老師重聚的活動,時間竟然與我放工的時間配合到。昨晚從大阪回來之後,回家更衣後便趕往旺角了~重遇十年沒有見過的一眾老師,還有我最掛念的陳兆鎧主任、梁群卿主任和梁贊主任~很開心~當了一整晚的侍應生,為各位老師師兄和師姐送上飲品也不算辛苦,我每天的工作也不過這樣嘛,哈哈!

小學畢業已經快十三年了,舊址新建的公屋,停工多年後也終於有望落成。時間過得太快了。但在老師的眼中,我們永遠是小孩子~

在我的眼中,你們也永遠是我敬佩的老師。
