Beauty Is

In the eye of the beholder, or so they say. We have different standards in giving values to things, and that is just the natural way things works. It is rare to find things in live which we all can unanimously say beautiful, be it a person, a place or even a thing. In a way it makes the world an interesting place to live in.

Appearance matters most to me, since what I see tend to affect how I’m seeing something. I know that we should not judge a book by its cover, but I believe that the initial thought or reaction to something we see is something that can’t be dismissed. It is what we do with our initial thought or reaction afterward that matters. Read the rest of this entry »

Until We Meet Again!

Life is one giant roller coaster ride that never actually ends. It turns, it bends, it goes up and it goes down, again and again. It might not be the best of metaphors to actually describe what life is, but for now it will do. Enough talking about life, now let’s talk about football instead?

Living in a football crazed country such as Indonesia sure has its privileges, and one of them is the ability to watch ALL the matches LIVE and for FREE.

Not Good For Your Health

Riding a motorcycle through Jakarta’s vehicle laden street is absolutely not good for your health. Especially considering that there are many unseen dangers waiting to befall you if you are careless. I especially dislike how those drivers and riders lacked proper street manners.

Addio, la squadra di calcio italiana!

Goodbye, Italian football team! I hope we’ll be seeing you in another two years at the European stages and in another four years at the World stages again. I wish it could have been different for them, but I think this proves that the ball is indeed round.

It was a thrilling game two watch, especially in the latter stages of second half. Surprises after surprises keep on coming and it was joyful to watch. It was marred by the dramas that both teams made, though. It was not surprising to see the Italy players did such a thing, I mean it was kind of their ‘specialty’. Read the rest of this entry »
