Squashy last night

Finally managed to play around of squash last night, not too bad, not so rusty as i thought, the strokes were still there except was a bit sluggish...seemed to lack the *NOS* factor, acceleration wasn't there but hey!! still not too bad :-)

Sifu was not himself after 10 weeks lay off, as always, he was all over the place and his shots know....

infact everyone was a bit slow (3 weeks no games leh) with the exception of Mr Goh with his power you need to do a bit more running against him...

and the best part, we're playing tomorrow too..yipee!!

English Samba?!

FA offers England job to Scolari

Luiz Felipe Scolari has been offered the job of England manager and is discussing terms with the Football Assocation. FA chief executive Brian Barwick is in Lisbon to thrash out a deal with the Portugal manager who is Brazilian. Scolari, 57, who guided Brazil to victory in the 2002 World Cup, is out of contract after the 2006 finals. If he accepts the post, he will take over from Sven-Goran Eriksson following this summer's tournament in Germany.

News that he has been offered the England job will come as a blow to those fans who favour a British appointment. The FA has also held talks with Middlesbrough boss Steve McClaren, Bolton's Sam Allardyce, Alan Curbishley of Charlton and former Celtic boss Martin O'Neill.

Scolari has helped to knock England out of their past two major tournaments - with Brazil in the 2002 World Cup quarter-finals, and with Portugal at the same stage in Euro 2004. He is a double winner of the Libertadores - the South American championship - and took hosts Portugal to the final of Euro 2004, where they lost to Greece.

Now, it'll be interesting to see Mr David Beckham doing the samba, don't you think!! :-D

Sifu's back...

Hey! Hey! Hey! Sifu's squash is *on* this evening and Friday too!! Hopefully we can play *kau-kau*, haven't played like for ages...hopefully not too rusty and slow, else can't give the Sifu a squash 101 lesson *muahahahahahah*

Good to have you back Sifu (for a while at least)....

1st real jog after so long...

Finally had my 1st real jog/run after so long............yeah! yeah! blame it on the rain/haze, had to work late (especially during CSA time), to tired after squash game, blah blah blah. But hey! I still manage to do a run yesterday, felt good about it, infact quite amaze that I can *still* run...did it slowly, took my time, paced felt hopefully I can constantly make it happen - that's the challenge!! Somehow will need motivation to continue on...

And what made me run out of the blue, well, some squash games got cancelled and its starting to take toll on me, started feeling lazy, lethargic, stamina screwed and everything else. Also something interesting I read on someone's blog ( stirred something in the head, made me take a step back and's like hey! We only live once and why not make live it to the fullest.

so keeping my fingers crossed...lets start running...

Firefox zealots offer users money to switch from IE

A group of Firefox advocates from Massachusetts is offering website publishers and bloggers $1 for each Internet Explorer visitor to their sites they can convince to switch to the Mozilla Firefox browser.

Google has recently announced that it will pay websites $1 for each referred download of Firefox it receives via the Google Toolbar. The four anti-Microsoft activists from Massachusetts have developed a series of free scripts that website owners can add to their sites that will detect whether visitors are running Internet Explorer. Depending on the script, the website will either show a splash page telling them to switch to Firefox or it will put a big switch banner at the top of the page.

What will they think of next?

The Mozilla Foundation released a new version of Firefox last week, version, which it said contained fixes for several security flaws.

According to security firm Secunia, there are a total of 21 flaws in the older versions of Firefox, such as Firefox 1.5, some of which it described as "highly critical".
