we're off to moscow! (man utd 1 barcelona 0)

"Follow, follow, follow...United are going to Moscow!"

Yessssss!!! Man Utd have qualified to the Final of this season's UEFA Champions' League on a single goal aggregate. A Scholes' peach of a goal in the 14th minute settled matters, though it was far from over during the remaining 76 minutes after the goal. But United stood firm, and a majestic performances by the defence marshalled by Rio Ferdinand ensured the stars of Barca were kept at bay. Credit to the fans too, who abide the pleas from the club and made the atmosphere electric! United also had their chances to kill off the game, but it was Barcelona who had the chunk of the possession (58% to United's 42%).

Nevertheless, it was the ginger-haired midfielder's long range goal that counts. Zambrotta made a mistake at the edge of the penalty area by passing the ball straight to Scholes, and a few steps later, he struck a sweet, swerving strike that was always going away from Barca's goalkeeper, Victor Valdes, to send Old Trafford into ruptures. How fitting it was, for his goal was the one that would bring United through to the final, 9 years after he missed the epic '99 final, due to suspension.

United's win also ensured that we will have an all-English final this season, with Chelsea and Liverpool to slug it out in tonight's 2nd Semi Final. Can we win in Moscow? BELIEVE! That is the one word that will bring a whole new hope and meaning for the team.

My previous post mentioned that hopefully a positive outcome from this match will bring the momentum to finish off the league. We certainly believe so! C'mon United!

end of season beckons!

Tonight is another important evening for Man Utd. A huge European night clash against Barcelona will see if United can make it to Final of this year's Champions' League.

After last week's Semi-Final 1st Leg matches, here is how the teams stand

Matches

1st Leg

2nd Leg

Agg

Liverpool (ENG) v Chelsea (ENG)

1-1

30/4

Barcelona (SPA) v Man Utd (ENG)

The 2 home teams (Chelsea and Man Utd) obviously have the so-called advantage, but in football anything can happen. Let's hope United won't fluff it this time and deliver. We have been frustrated in the last 3 matches; 1-1 at Blackburn, 0-0 at the Nou Camp, and most recently the 2-1 reverse at the Bridge. Another performance like those, then we will rue the chance of making it to Moscow. Please get the momentum back, so that we can also nick and retain the Premier League crown.

GLORY GLORY!

14012008178

Last Monday, on 21st April, after 3 years, 7 months and 21 days, I tendered my resignation from Maribumi Sdn Bhd on a one-month's notice. After cancelling off my remaining leaves, my last day working will be on 3rd May, which is this Saturday. It has been a pleasure working with Maribumi, as I was only a fresh graduate when they hired me. There were of course ups, and downs, but the experience was worth it. So as a tribute, this post is dedicated especially to all Maribumi Sdn Bhd's personnel, for whom I have been together since 30th August 2004.

kk freeze in city mall [pending post :)]

As I mentioned here, I have have few things to post since the beginning of the week, but I was so tied up last week, so they are pending till today.

First up is the KK Freeze event, which was held in the City Mall at exactly 8 pm, 20th of April, in conjunction with the World Earth Day. It was also held at the same time in Sunway Pyramid, Petaling Jaya. So officially, Malaysia held its Freeze at 2 places simultaneously. Cool eh. No idea what Freeze is? Well, hop here, the brainchild of this event's site!

I myself was not supposed to attend the event, when Elaine called me that evening telling there's something going on at City Mall. There were already a few people gathering in City Mall's Pizza Hut when I arrived, amongst them Jacq, Amie and Dinoza.

Nevertheless, the event went well. Never had the longest 5 minutes in my life! Anyways, if you're looking for photos, and stories, I suggest you visit my fellow friends' sites, then you might get the best idea what Freezing is...even if it is the slightest of ideas. Big Grin I've seen the photos, they are great! Credit to my photographer friends!

chelsea 2 man utd 1

The Match of the Season of the Barclays Premier League was played last night, and the match fully lived up to its bill as the 'Battle of the Bridge'. A potential title decider certainly provided everthing; end-to-end stuff, tough tackles flying everywhere, dodgy refereeing decisions (oh...that penalty...), bloody jaw, incensed manager, on-the-line saves (one of them by a forgotten striker!), an offside that was not, argie-bargie among players (especially the one Ferdinand threw to that bastard John Obi 'cry-baby' Mikel), and of course last but not least...the goals. Phew, enough to make me biting my teeth at the edge of my seat. But in the end, Chelsea prevailed, an 86th minute penalty converted by Michael Ballack decided the outcome of the match.

As much as I do not want to admit it, Chelsea deserved it, with Avram Grant winning his tactical battle with Sir Alex Ferguson. There were suspicions about several of Ferguson's tactical decisions from the start (Ronaldo, Evra and Tevez didn't start, only Ronaldo came on as one of Ferguson's substitutes, Giggs started, Scholes didn't, and I am never a fan of 4-5-1!), and questions were still there to be asked when he made his substitutions. We know all too much about the crunch Barcelona tie, but to lose against a team hot on your heels, probably losing your momentum and morale, and probably losing the title back to London, is still unacceptable. And you're not even sure of winning the European title...yet... Confused Trophyless season? Let's hope not... Sigh

United still leads the table, but now level on points with Chelsea. With 2 more matches to go, United will need to win both matches against West Ham at OT and at Wigan on the last day of the season. Going to the wire? Definitely!

Chelsea 2 (Ballack 45, pen 86)

On a lighter note, Sunderland is safe after their 3-2 win against Middlesbrough, leaving 6 teams to battle it out against the drop; Wigan, Middlesbrough, Bolton, Reading, Birmingham, Fulham (they lived through another day after beating Man City away 3-2).

GLORY GLORY!

welcome to heaven...hehehe...

After a long illness, a woman died and arrived at the Gates of Heaven. While she was waiting for Saint Peter to greet her, she peeked through the Gates. She saw a beautiful banquet table. Sitting all around were her parents and all the other people she had loved and who had died before her. They saw her and began calling greetings to her.

When Saint Peter came by, the woman said to him, "This is such a wonderful place! How do I get in?"

"You have to spell a word," Saint Peter told her.

"Which word?" the woman asked.

"Love."

The woman correctly spelled "love" and Saint Peter welcomed her into Heaven.

About six months later, Saint Peter came to the woman and asked her to watch the Gates of Heaven for him that day. While the woman was guarding the Gates of Heaven, her husband arrived.

"I'm surprised to see you," the woman said. "How have you been?"

"Oh, I've been doing pretty well since you died," her husband told her. "I married the beautiful young nurse who took care of you while you were ill. And then I won the lottery. I sold the little house you and I lived in and bought a big mansion. And my wife and I traveled all around the world. We were on vacation and I went water skiing today. I fell, the ski hit my head, and here I am. How do I get in?"

"You have to spell a word," the woman told him.

"Which word?" her husband asked.

"Czechoslovakia."

Since small, I have always been an avid follower of sports. Although my favourite sport has to be football, I follow other sports as well; athletics, badminton, tennis, sometimes golf, rugby, etc. And when the big events come; Olympics, World Cup, Commomnwealth Games, European Championships, Asian Games, I am certain to follow the updates. So since this year is Olympic year, it is an honour to have Malaysia one of the countries chosen to host the Olympic Torch Relay.

Img214038700

That is why I think what had happened in this country during the run, as reported in today's The Star article, was a total disgrace. I've actually seen a few names from the list and I thought this was done more for publicity, then for the real Olympic spirit. It was a shame, after all the aftermath in Europe, now it has to endure the criticisms of Malaysians.

KUALA LUMPUR: The selection of torchbearers by the Olympic Council of Malaysia (OCM) for the Malaysian leg of the Beijing Olympics Torch Relay held on Monday has come under fire from former Olympians.

Isthiaq Mubarak, who represented the country in three Olympics, namely the 1968 in Mexico, 1972 in Munich and 1976 in Montreal, was sad that he and a number of former Olympians who were well into their 60s and who might not be around when the next torch run comes around, were sidelined.

“There were so many torch bearers who were not even part of the Olympics but were included while people like me who has been inducted into the Hall of Fame was not even considered. Where is the Olympism?” he asked.

Former Asian Games bronze medallist Rajemah Sheikh Ahmad, the wife of former Olympian Kamaruddin Maidin, had called the selection of torchbearers for the Torch Relay a shame to the Olympic ideals.

“My husband represented the country in the 1960 Rome Olympics but the OCM did not even have the courtesy to invite him to witness the run, let alone become a torchbearer. I would not mind if there were too many former Olympians that my husband had to be left out but when I saw the list, I was shocked.

“Since when did astronauts, someone who went on a solo expedition to the North Pole, Inspector-General of Police, director-general of the National Sports Council, National Sports Institute and Youth and Sports Ministry secretary general and Datin Paduka Marina Mahathir became Olympians?” asked Rajemah who contacted Bernama to express her dissatisfaction.

Kamaruddin was a national triple jump and long jump champion during his heydays in the 1960s while Rajemah was part of the 4x100m quartet who won a bronze medal in the 1966 Asian Games.

Apart from Kamaruddin, former men’s 110m hurdles champion Isthiaq Mubarak, javelin thrower Datuk Nashatar Singh, sprinter Datuk M. Rajamani, who were all Olympians, were also not part of the event, while Marina Chin, who had only represented the country at SEA Games level, was chosen ahead of them.

In 1966, Rajemah together with Rajamani, Jackie Clieman and Cherryl Dorral, clinched a bronze in Bangkok which remains the highest feat by a Malaysian women relay team at the Asian Games till today.

Meanwhile, OCM secretary Datuk Sieh Kok Chi said the torch relay was not meant for athletes alone, but for a mixed group, namely former athletes, current athletes, public sector, non-governmental organisations and sponsors.

“We had requested the respective associations to nominate some names but only squash and tenpin bowling replied, so we had to make other arrangements.

However, if these people were really interested in participating, they could have come forward, but now it is too late,” said Kok Chi.

He said the distribution was done fairly and that OCM could not accommodate all former Olympians. – Bernama

Taken from The Star, 23 April 2008. A few names were mentioned in the article. Maybe to some, they also deserved it, but it's those who deserved but was not even chosen that really disappoints me. When will Malaysia learn, no one knows. There are too many people to blame, so there is no point. Maybe everybody is still too engulfed with GE12, that's why! I think it is just pathetic!

blonde bimbo

Another joke about blondies...

A blonde was driving down the road listening to the radio and was quite upset when she heard blonde joke after blonde joke

.A little way down the road, she saw another blonde out in a field rowing a boat. The blonde stopped her car and angrily jumped out yelling, "You dumb blonde bimbo! It's blondes like you that give the rest of us a bad name! If I could swim I'd come out there and give you what's coming to you!"

In my mind
Recast as child and mystic sage
Who wouldn't be the one you love

And for the first time
I'm telling you how much I need and bleed for
Your every move and waking sound

i still believe - mariah carey

#1's

I used to think that the lady above has probably the best pair of legs in the whole world! Still naive bah that time! But I was still in my secondary years and when I saw her album cover I was like wooooooooo!!!!! She had many good songs at that time, even her albums before this. Too bad she's not the same nowadays. However, there was this one song that stands and will always make my playlist anytime...

I Still Believe
Mariah Carey
#1's

You look in my eyes
And I get emotional inside
I know it's crazy
But you still can touch my heart

And after all this time
You'd think that I
I wouldn't feel the same
But time melts into nothing
And nothing's changed

I still believe
Someday you and me
Will find ourselves in love again

I had a dream
Someday you and me
Will find ourselves in love again

Each day of my life
I'm filled with all the joy I could find
You know that I
I'm not the desperate type

If there's one spark of hope
Left in my grasp
I'll hold it with both hands
It's worth the risk of burning
To have a second chance

No, no, no, no, no, no I need you baby
I still believe that we can be together
If we believe that true love never has to end
Then we must know that we will love again

game on! c'mon united!

Blackburn 1 (Santa Cruz, 21)
Man Utd 1 (Tevez ,88)

Last night was a disappointing one for Manchester United, but my expectations that it would be a very hard and physical game at Ewood Park proved right. United got their second consecutive draw on the road after the draw at The Riverside. They managed to labour themselves out of the trap in the same manner as they did against Middlesbrough, when Rooney scored late, albeit this time, it is much, much later..

Carlos Tevez scored with 2 minutes left on the clock, to at least save a point, after a mix-up by Ferdinand and Vidic in the penalty area when handling Pedersen's long throw led to Roque Santa Cruz scoring in the 21st minute. It was a vital point won, rather than 2 points lost, ahead of their crunch visit to Stamford Bridge next weekend, which is a win-or-bust match for both Manchester United and Chelsea in terms of their title aspirations.

The faces of the goalscorer, Tevez and his team-mates showed it all, the importance of the point, as the team was lacklustre throughout, especially in the 1st half; Ferdinand and Vidic weren't too composed, old heads Giggsy and Scholesy were looking 'old' at times, Ronaldo was kept quiet, Brown's efforts were strewn with errors, only Evra, Rooney and Tevez were at least looked above the others.

The next 2 weeks will be vital for Manchester United. The 2 legged semi-final matches against Barcelona looming, with Battle at the Bridge in between, with 9 points to play in the Premier League, and a trip to Moscow at stake, it's squeaky bum time for Ferguson and his troops.

GLORY GLORY!

ALHAMDULILLAH!!!

Yesterday was a Friday. There were no more phone calls, but yesterday was very much better. I received a couriered package from that so-called-oil-and-gas-company. The content? I've been offered! I made it! YEAY!!! Party Sorry, but I'm so good in making this post sounds excited! My first day of work will be on 16 May, that's in barely a month's time.

I went straight to their appointed clinic to have my medical check-up done. Everything went well, except for the lung and hearing tests, and the X-ray, which had to be done at Sabah Diagnostics Centre at Sedco Complex. But when I reached there, the place was on the verge of closing, cause apparently, there was a short circuit on one of their X-ray machines, causing sparks, and machine shut down. So, I had to postpone that part of the test to tomorrow (today la tu...)

puh-leassseeeee!!!

Yesterday The New Straits Times came with a 'this-is-what-I-have-been-waiting-for!' article in their website. I meant to post this yesterday itself, but workload caught up on me. The title of the article was 'Get to Work', and I felt it was so aptly named. It's so coincidental that the article was published just a day after I posted this. Here goes..

It's been five weeks since the general election. The Barisan Nasional was returned to power, albeit with a smaller majority and the loss of five states.

Despite the shock of the result, it was still a mandate that no one could argue with, not even Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim in his wildest allegations of electoral fraud. But what has Umno, the leading partner of the coalition and largest party in parliament, been doing since March 8? Bickering, pointing fingers, baying for vengeance and doing everything imaginable except rolling up its sleeves and getting down to the work of governing.

Enough is enough.

People are getting fed up with Umno’s moaning and groaning, the political wayang and sandiwara its cast of characters is playing up and down the country.

The truth is that the people have long been disgusted with the kind of boorish, loutish behaviour that Umno leaders had exemplified because of their grip on power since independence in 1957.

Brandishing the kris was hurtful to the non-Malays but the party leadership did nothing to take the Umno Youth chief to task for the menacing and insulting gesture. Which was why he was emboldened to repeat it and provide extra impetus for the Chinese and Indians to abandon the BN at the polls.

It also did not go unnoticed that the leadership put up with the racist and inflammatory rhetoric of the delegates at the televised 2006 Umno general assembly.

Then there was the desecration of the temple under the watch of the then Selangor Menteri Besar Datuk Seri Dr Mohd Khir Toyo which did so much to outrage the Hindus throughout the country and turn them against the ruling coalition. And Dr Khir had the cheek to award a broom to a local council president, when neither he nor the party president could control the warlords who held the party to ransom over the choice of candidates, and stabbed the party in the back when they did not approve of the candidates.

Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi is now paying for these and other acts of omission, including the undeliverable promises of change that he made when he first became prime minister in 2003.

Every other day, he has had to deflect attacks by party members and ex-leaders who conveniently have absolved themselves of any fault. But every day that he is sidetracked by party bickering is another day affairs of state are neglected — the nation and the people are the losers.

Abdullah has said that he has got the message; he has accepted responsibility for the unkept pledges; and this time, he vows he will deliver on his promises and set the country in order before he retires.

That is, in fact, the verdict of his mandate, and he should be allowed to get on with it. But all the worms crawling out of the Umno woodwork — especially the retired and those with shelf lives past due who have found new breath in their calls for a party coup — won’t let him.

They don’t get it. Abdullah is not solely to be blamed and everything will not suddenly be all well again if he goes. Umno from the roots to the high branches all have to share the blame for their silence, their greed, arrogance and shenanigans that have turned off voters. So stop the navel-gazing and infighting.

If they have to fight among themselves, at least have the decency to keep it civilised and behind closed doors. They don’t have to drag the whole country through their infernal politicking.

There are more important things than private peeves and settling of scores.

Neither the brewing crisis over soaring food prices nor other major issues are going to wait for Umno to put its own house in order. Now is the time for the grand old party to move on, do the things its leaders have promised and show that it still has what it takes to lead the nation.

NST Online 16/04/08

Very true! They will never learn do they! Rotten species! Do you know the food crisis is a worldwide issue, and there's no apparent solution for it? This is claimed by the United Nations people!!!

my Abah and his watch

Last night I was a bit on the nostalgic side with Abah. He showed me this one very ancient looking watch. I wonder where he found it, but to my surprise the watch was still working well. As usual as he is, he asked me that trivial question about the age of the watch. Well I remembered his story that he got it from my Atuk, but I was kinda blur so I couldn't really figure out which year he got it. Abah and I have very much the same characteristics so instead of waiting for me to calculate the answer inside my slowing brain, he answered, '35'. Man, that was in 1973! Vietnam was still at war!

Abah's Old Watch
The watch comes with day and date...canggeyyy!!!

Abah's Old Watch 1 

As I said, there is a story behind the watch, that will be etched forever in Abah's heart, and maybe those closest to him, like me. Happy It may be short, but it has an impact to some of us, as a reminder of someone we really love. The story is a bit vague, so I apologize if it lacks accuracy.

My Arwah Atuk went through a lot to buy the watch for my Abah. If I am not mistaken, Abah teased him about buying him a watch or maybe not specifically a watch but a gift, to commemorate an occasion. I don't remember what occasion it was, probably it was Abah's graduation or something. Big Grin

So Atuk had to painstakingly borrow some amount of money from his friend, or member of the family to buy the watch as a gift. Isn't that so touching...Abah comes from a poor family, so to get him a Seiko at that time was probably out of everybody's mind.

Anyway, not so long after that, my father went to the States to further his studies, with the watch always with him, of course as a reminder of his father and his family back home. Until one day, the watch went missing. Not so long after that, he received a telegram, saying that Atuk was gravely ill, asking Abah to come back the soonest. By the time Abah arrived home, Atuk was already buried. Imagine the sadness that sure grips Abah's heart.

It always touched me when I remember the story. Abah and Ami always tells me and Ajan (my brother) stories of their past, which made me wonder, if there ever be a chance for us for life to be that hard again. Not that I want life to be hard, but I believe that was why we became what we are today. Without the life Abah and Ami experienced in the past, there might not be a chance for Ajan and I to achieve what have achieved now.

If I get the job in that certain-oil-company, Ajan (by the way, Ajan is with Shell) and I would like to dedicate our achievements to Abah and Ami. Though it may not be enough, but thank you for making us the way we are. Being a pain in the ass as we are, we love both of you so much. Nothing compares. Big Hug

Kissing A Fool - Michael Buble

I like this song. It's from Michael Buble. It was originally by George Michael, before Michael did a cover of the song.

Kissing A Fool
Michael Buble

You are far
When I could have been your star
You listened to people
Who scared you to death
And from my heart
Strange that you were strong enough
To even make a start
But you'll never find
Peace of mind
Till you listen to your heart

People
You can never change the way the feel
Better let them do just what they will
For they will
If you let them
Steal your heart from you
People
Will always make a lover feel a fool
But you knew I loved you
We could have shown them all
We should have seen love through

You are far
I'm never gonna be your star
I'll pick up the pieces
And mend my heart
Maybe I'll be strong enough
I don't know where to start
But I'll never find
Peace of mind
While I listen to my heart

People
You can never change the way the feel
Better let them do just what they will
For they will
If you let them
Steal your heart from you
People
Will always make a lover feel a fool
But you knew I loved you
We could have shown them all
We should have seen love through

But remember this
Every other kiss
That you'll ever give
Long as we both live
When you need the hand of another man
One you really can surrender with
I will wait for you
Like I always do
There's something there
That can't compare with any other

You are far
When I could have been your star
You listened to people
Who scared you to death
And from my heart
Strange that I was wrong enough
To think you'd love me too
I guess you were kissing a fool
You must have been kissing a fool

latest in malaysian politics

This is the latest for today in Malaysian politics

  • Anwar Ibrahim is back! His political ban officially expired yesterday. Throngs of supporters greeted him last night at Sultan Sulaiman's club to hear his address. He reiterated his statement that the Pakatan Rakyat is ready to form the next Federal Government (but not in a hurry), easily wresting it from the more-than-obvious weakened Barisan Nasional.
  • Chua Jui Meng will be contesting the Party President's post in the upcoming MCA election. He hopes to bring the glory days back to MCA after the disaster following the recent General Election. Applause
  • As usual, Pak Lah says there is no need for him to step down, and leave the party (which party? UMNO? BN?) in disarray. BLAH! Time out Can someone hand him the magic cane please, maybe he can convince us better using that.

Honestly, it's obvious that in politics, power is more important than the needs of the Rakyat. Everyone in politics talks first above all about retaining, regaining, or obtaining power before talking about the Rakyat. I know, people will argue that power is the vehicle to take care of the Rakyat. But sometimes it has gone too much. And we all know, with politics, comes money, comes fame, comes everything else that will make people eventually forget, and take GOOD care of their own pockets and arses. Take a look at these 2 tales of our so-called leaders.

Pak Lah is not one to budge from his responsibility and resign, yes, probably some people will respect that. But what would you expect when you don't even get the support of the upper echeleons, let alone the grassroots. Didn't he read the newspapers yesterday (I am referring to that interview with Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin)?

Anwar meanwhile constantly speaks about running the country eventhough he does not even have a seating in the Parliament. Although there are imminent rumours about him making a comeback by contesting in a by-election, as soon as Tan Sri Khalid Ibrahim vacant his Bandar Tun Razak seat, but a little bit of modesty is very much appreciated.

Is there anyone out there who actually care about us, the Rakyat? The way I see it, even with the so called 'Political Tsunami', and all the hype around it, I dont' think so. It seems that everybody is busy trying to become PM, DPM, Ministers, Deputy Ministers, Secretaries, so on and so on. In politics, nothing is ever black and white, it is always grey. Sad isn't it? Confused

a cigarette, a whisky and a golf club

A man is stranded on a deserted island for 10 years. One day, a gorgeous blond woman wearing a wet suit and scuba gear arrives on the island. She comes up to the man and says, "How long has it been since you had a cigarette?"

"Ten years!" he answers. She reaches over, unzips the waterproof pocket on her left sleeve and pulls out a pack of fresh cigarettes. He takes one, lights it, takes a long drag and says, "Man, oh man! Is that ever good!"

Then she asks, "How long has it been since you had a whisky?"

He replies, "Ten years!" She reaches over, unzips her waterproof pocket on the right, pulls out a bottle of malt whisky and gives it to him. He takes a long swallow and says, "Wow, that is fantastic!"

Then she starts unzipping this long zipper that runs down the front of her wet suit and she says to him, "And how long has it been since you had some real fun?"

And the man replies, "My God! Don't tell me you've got golf clubs in there!"

The image above shows an advert by Swedish Absolut Vodka, in Mexico. The American public is calling for a boycott on the product to express their protest on the advertisement. Well, you guessed it why...this was the border between the two countries before the Mexican-American War of 1848. That meant Texas and California would be under Mexico. Imagine if it stayed that way till today eh! Tongue

A relatively poor but effective Manchester United side took Arsenal in a cracking game today needing to win to march closer towards the 2007/08 Premier League title. And they did just that!

Adebayor scored first moments after the 2nd half started. Though as dubious as it seemed (it was clear handball okay!), United continued pressing and rewarded a penalty moments after when Gallas (isn't he a former Blues? Thinking Rolling on the floor) handled the ball. A cheeky Ronaldo penalty followed to make the score 1-1.

After a man-of-the-match performance against Roma in midweek, Owen Hargreaves stepped up in the 72nd minute to score a majestic free-kick which left Lehmann (YES, LEHMANN THE JERMAN!!! Hee hee) rooted. A frantic and nervous 18 minutes followed but although Arsenal barraged United's goalmouth, including a Bendtner's header which went against the post, the 2006/07 Champions held on, to collect the elusive 3 points. 6 points above Chelsea, 9 points above the Gooners, let the ball rolling United!

My friend Anne introduced me to this video. I thought it was funny, hillarious, but this is what we always face in life...CONFUSIONS, CONFUSIONS, CONFUSIONS... Tongue

Tall, Grande, Venti...
