World Cup Feva dan Demam AF

Dah 2 minggu tak update blog aku ni.... macam mana nak jadi blogger macam ni... actually the first week tu aku sibuk dengan final exam paper law aku.... then minggu lepas balik kampung.... cuti seminggu.... so, now, i'm back and also world cup is back....

Of course, macam world cup yang terdahulu, team yang disokong semestinya Argentina.... tak percaya, sila tengok gambar yang dilampirkan.... (diego maradona dengan batistuta, tak dapat pegi world cup, so melepak depan tv, tapi bukan tengok world cup... tapi tengah tengok AF.... hahahah)... Actually ada satu lagi team, Italy, yang aku sokong.... sentimental value sikit dengan italy ni.... punca dari kekalahan euro 2000 dulu.... tapi, teringin jugak nak tengok England menang tahun ni sebab ada Gerard and Crouch... hehehehe... tu la pasal...

Team yang disokong
1) Argentina (sebab sokong dari 1986 lagi)
2) Italy (sda)

Team yang tak disokong
1) Brazil (bosan, selalu sangat menang)
2) France (sebab ada henry)
3) Germany (berlagak)

Team yang gitu2 disokong
1) England (sda)
2) Spain (kesian, tak pernah menang)

So, permulaan yang baik buat Argentina... nasib baik menag 2-1.. padan muka Drogba...

Satu lagi demam AF... AF4.... waimah apa pun, AF4 kali ni tak macam last year.... macam hambar la sikit tahun ni... biasa jela... nasib baik ada lotter dengan farhan, kalau tak aku tak tengok dah... Konsert first biasa saja sebab semua lagu lama... the concept is good but the performance bohsan.... Second punya, tak dapat tengok sebab ada kelas tadi.... tension betul

Yang best this year
1) Lotter
2) Farhan

Yang ok lah
1) Faizal
2) Velvet

Yang tak best
1) the rest yang tak disebut.....

So selamat menonton apa yang nak ditonton....
