900 times and still going…Ryan Giggs

Giggs played his 900th game for Man Utd, an awesome humongous feat.
A rare professional in today’s commercialized football game.

Our favourite Welsh Wizard, who ruled the left wing for many years.

The picture below is not really a tribute to Giggs.

It’s actually a tribute to LFC for finally winning something,
after 6 years of YNWA (You Never Win Anything).

Finally they won a cup. A Mishka Mushka one.

Full size bike on public

I was taking the train to the newly opened Gapyeong Station (2nd day of operation). It was in Seoul, late 2010, when I saw this: A full size 26″ hardtail bike onboard the train. Probably the MTB was on its way to rough out the trail near Nami Island.



If we could have this allowed on our SMRT trains…bliss. Imagine a Sunday morning train ride to Pasir Ris, onwards the bus to Changi Jetty, ride the waves on the bumboats and cycle away at Pulau Ubin for a Sunday adventure.

Definitely not going to happen though, a taxi ride to Changi would have cost SGD$25-30 easily. Multiply that with 1 bike per taxi. A $100?The train? Forget it. Every single train is packed like sardines just fished out into the boat. And the government is planning to bring in more. Not more trains or more bicycles…but more people. Sigh.Us at Nami Island

Tanjong Pagar and Tampines move

Tomorrow is S-League 2012 Charity Shield, league starts next Thursday, 7 days away and S-League has another surprise.

Tanjong Pagar United FC will now play its home game in Queenstown Stadium instead of Clementi.

Tampines Rovers FC will now play at Clementi Stadium instead of Tampines.


I stay near Clementi and had applied for Tanjong Pagar season tickets. I had not paid yet.



So now, I either:

Option A
Make my way down all the way to Queenstown Stadium to support Tanjong Pagar United FC, which will cost me 1 hour of journey time.

Option B
Support Tampines Rovers which is actually from the other side of the island at Clementi Stadium. Save on travel, but which means I will have to support Tampines only for a season, as they will shift back once the Tampines Sports Hub is ready.

WoW!! S-League is so “full of surprises”.

I can’t decide, and at this rate I might as well use the money set aside season tickets and buy a Manchester United jersey instead.

S-League 2.0? Nevermind. move news here
