Khadija Terri, we seem to share the same traits.
I didn’t watch the whole match this morning. It was shown at 2.30 am. It was a boring match & I rather read a book; therefore, I didn’t not catch the 2nd half of the match. Woke up at 6 am and turned on the tv and checked for the match results on eurosports…a draw. It was expected from Liverpool. They would rather get a draw during away games. Against Juve at Turin, it was a draw as well. Anyways, they had better play well at Anfield for the 2nd stage of the semis. They somehow play differently during championship matches. There’s more flair, desire to win in comparison to their premiership matches. It’s as if they have split personalities. A totally different team. In fact I was frustrated when they lost to, my God, Crystal Palace of all teams.
p/s found out Xabi won’t be playing against Chelsea at Anfield. How disappointing. But, I know Liverpool, they might just pull a rabbit out of a hat. Anything can happen with a team like Liverpool they’re like Dr Jekyll & Mr Hyde. I hope it’s Dr Jekyll.

Interested in Slangs, try visiting this site ->> American Slang – Randomly Chosen
Ask yourself this question:
Is the excessive use of slangs distorting the English language?
In some ways it does as it is very informal and sometimes we do get carried away. However, slangs do make the language interesting by using the borrowed words from other languages. I have never considered that as slang before but somehow I came across a website stating that amigo is a slang….here is something I found..the definition of slang :
Slang is language at its most informal, using expressions that many would consider to be grammatically imperfect and sometimes rude. Slang often used within small social groups where it can help draw and keep the group together. It changes very quickly in English.
ie: crap, dope
Whereas colloquial is:
Colloquial language is informal language that is not rude, but would not be used in formal situations. It is less unacceptable than Slang & Swear Words.
A colloquialism is an informal expression, that is, an expression not used in formal speech or writing.
some eg i know: flunk, moron
I am and will not discuss anything which concerns with my workplace here. No matter how good or bad the news is. Whatever concerns with work has to be left at the workplace. Notice that I did not give specific details about my working life.
In reality, I’m cracking my brain searching (buscar – search in spanish) for articles and activities.
Went to Ikano Power Station at 5 stgh. Had to get a few stuffs overthere since there are no more bookstores at the Atria. There used to be one but Popular decided to move to Ikano for a bigger & better space. So whenever I need to buy books @ stationaries I have to drive to Ikano @ OU. I went there to buy some books but they were out of stock or no longer in publication. So, I have to get something…I don’t like to go somewhere & come back empty handed..shish…so I got my self 2 paperbacks…they were on offer..gosh books these days aren’t cheap. Years ago they would only cost you RM28..these days some novels are priced at RM50…who cares…you really want them..go ahead and buy them!…but I’ll think a trillion times before I do so..and in the end I’ll just get them…that’s me..love to give myself a headache!
on the way back..there was a massive traffic jam at the NKVE…pity those people who are returning home to Subang..or even BU.
This morning, I had a surprise. There on my table was this nicely wrapped gift. A belated birthday gift. I don’t know who is it from. By the way thank you. I guess it must be someone from cyberspace. So, whoever you are thank you.
p/s there’s champions league match on thursday morning. I hope Liverpool will win..that will be one of the most memorable moments in my life, to watch LFC beat Chelsea. It won’t be my milestone but Liverpool FC’s. My milestone?….hummm…when I am awarded my Master’s degree..that’s an achievement!…I guess it will change as years past by.
