Kirkland Leaves Pool for WBA for season-long loan

Kirkland on loan at WBA

It's finalised. Chris Kirkland completes the move from the Anfield side to WBA for a season-long loan.

Pool's £8m capture of goal-keeper Jose Reina from Villarreal is almost confirmed, Reina's arrival at Anfield most probably spelled the end of the road at Anfield for Kirkland.

Chris joined Liverpool from Conventry for £6m in 2001. He was highly regarded as the goalkeeper of his generation. He looked almost certain to hold the No. 1 place over Jerzy Dudek for the first-team spot. However, his back injury during the season ended his first-team spell.

It's unlikely that Chris would return to Anfield upon completion of his loan period at WBA at the end of 05/06 season. I always thought that Kirland has the potential to be England's No. 1, hope his move to WBA wouldn't hurt us.

Jose Reina

On the other hand, I'm happy that Liverpool is going to make the first signing for Jose Reina. Every other team in the League is signing someone, except us. I was seriously getting worried.

Liverpool faces TNS

Pool will face Total Network Solutions (TNS) in the first round qualifier of the Champions League.

It's supposedly an easy draw, but we shouldn't underestimate the strength of TNS (sounds totally like a IT solution company to me), afterall, they are the league champions in Wales.

We're gonna win this & I'm very positive that we will. We shall then move on to the next rounds, till we reach the final & defend our trophy.

Mr and Mrs Smith

Is the movie good? I have heard all good reviews about it, but you know film critics & friends whom had watched the movie aren't always accurate. Don't wanna burn my pocket by paying 10 bucks to watch a not-so-fantastic film.

Help me out? Should I go watch?

I know how it feels now

Probably i realised things too late, maybe i wasn't thinking far enough.
Maybe i'm just not sensible enough, yet.

It's such a huge committment to spend the rest of your life with someone, starting a family, having kids, maintaining the relationship. It's never easy. You may say that that love is enough to keep the relationship, but it isn't in reality.

With the flat on the way, i need $$$ for the renovations. Though both of us have agreed to keep it simple, there wouldn't be too much of hacking & knocking, renovations would be kept to the minimum. But i do need furniture, don't I? I need a fridge, a bed, a TV, a DVD player, a wardrobe, a washing machine & many others.

I seriously and genuinely realised that saving is so important. Having a place of your own is cool, but there are so many things you have to consider before plunging into it. I never save on my own. Luckily for me, i always apportion a part of my salary to dearie & we are just going to have enough for the stuff.

I know how it feels like to be really really cash-strapped. It's not a good feeling. I shall never fuss about my elder brother whom never brings back $$ for the family. He's married with a son & my sis-in-law doesn't hold a full-time job; on top of that, he's paying off the loan on the flat alone. I shall never be critical of my brother again, because i know how it feels now.

LOST, i'm captivated.

I wasn't expecting a great show, but knowing J.J Abrams (the creator of Alias that capulated Jennifer Garner to stardom); it gonna be hard to ignore the show. We have only seen 3 episodes in Singapore, I know the series is almost finished in the U.S.

The show plays on the mysteries & stories behind each crash victim. I'm dying to know what Kate (Lilly Evangeline) did to warrant such hatred towards her by the US Marshall. I wanna know who's the French woman still stranded on the island after 16 long years. I wanna know why is there a polar bear in a tropical jungle as depicted in the show. I wanna know what's the secret that Locke's (Terry O'Quinn) hiding, he seems so weird.

So many questions, but no answers. I hope the series get better, instead of getting stale if the story develops too slowly. It's only aired once a week, i wonder how long it would take me to finish the whole series.

I'm going to be a flat owner SOON

Click any point to centralise map

Some things in life are worth waiting for. Just like a good HDB flat unit.

My dearie & I have been actively seeking a flat near his parents in Bedok, so that we can take better of them; they declined to move in with us. Finally, Lady Luck was with us last weekend & we saw a pretty good 4-room unit that was at a reasonable price.
We paid the 1k deposit on last Sunday & the unit would be ours in 3-4 months time, our
peace haven, a place to return to after a long day at work. How nice!
From now till i get the flat, i have been thinking how should i renovate the flat? Do i want it
to look futuristic, country-like, Zen-like or comfortable? I think I'll go for comfort. I'll need
a nice bed frame with a good mattress, a friggin' good LCD flat screen tv to watch the
football matches & a couple of other nice furnishings.
This one is pretty nice, looks comfy enough.
This is so damn cool & it looks HUGE!
I could use one of those, but the flat's too small for it.
Anyway, i'm looking forward to owning my flat.

Liverpool to Defend the Champions League

This is really the best news I have heard during the past month.


Though they are gonna start from the first qualifying rounds, what matters is they are defending their title as Champions. The earlier qualifying ties would mean that they might meet Everton & Man Utd, the ties would also disrupt their pre-season plans.

Well, nothing matters for now. We are going to defend the trophy this coming season!!

I Love Old Navy & Dorothy Perkins

I love Old Navy and Dorothy Perkins.

I love the bigger size clothes they have & the wonderful sexy designs they have. Singapore isn't just made up of skinny models, mind you. I'm not your usual skinny model type, you can't lift me up & twirl me around your waist; I think you would break your back & arms if you did that.

I love that olive green (i want it in black too) cardigan & the chic turquoise dress. They don't have it in Dorothy Perkins @ Singapore & DP don't ship internationally. WHY ??

I want to own that lovely off-white cardigan & the super cute pink polo, why can't we get Old Navy in Singapore? It doesn't help again that Old Navy doesn't ship internationally too, there are some things money really cannot buy.

Don't tell me to lose weight & get the clothes that can fit me locally, you skinny people don't understand the problems we face when we get our clothes.

Anyone willing to get those for me? I would be so so appreciative, i swear.
