Americans and the World Cup 2010

AMERICA'S clueless stars scored a series of own goals when quizzed about the World Cup.

High School Musical actor Zac Efron, 22, said he couldn't wait for the States' game on Saturday - against MAN UNITED.

Jason Segel, 30, called England's team "the UK" and got his dates wrong, saying: "My best friend is British and left the room crying five years ago during the World Cup."

Jackie Chan, 56, said among his tips to win the cup were "Barcelona and Milan".

Other Hollywood stars like Eva Mendes, 36, and Vanessa Hudgens, 21, had no idea the tournament was on.

But rapper Snoop Dogg, 38, was more knowledgable. He said: "I believe Brazil are going to win."

Hello! It's been more than a month since I joined the rat race. No doubt it is a very difficult transition to begin with and I am only starting to get the hang of it. Getting up early for work is a pain. I am pretty certain I have never gotten up earlier than 8a.m for more than 20 occasions over the 365 days in 2009 and I have at least 8 hours of sleep daily in year 2009! Nowadays I only get 7 hours if I am lucky! My office isn't near where I live, so I spend some 60 minutes plus minus on the road to and fro office, it's tiring to drive back after work!

The amount of time I spend in office can be abit crazy too at times. I left office at 0700 in the morning on one occasion in my second week and went back in 3 hours later, leave at 12 a.m + occasionally and at 21.00 on average. My social life is gone if not for my colleagues and it becomes increasingly difficult to keep in touch with friends outside the firm. I'm still adapting and it is getting better by the day.

I will survive with my awesome bunch of colleagues! Apart from the heavy workload and long hours, I like the firm and its people. I'm learning alot and getting lots of exposure working for my team. That's the most important isn't it? Have a good weekend ppl! I enjoy my weekends more than I ever did now. Say hi if you ever see me in court!

New Beginning

I'd better update my blog while I still have time in hand. The past one month was an eventful one. I'm glad to say that the wait is finally over and I'm one step closer to legal practice. I passed my referral paper for Certificate in Legal Practice, went for an interview and I will be gainfully employed in the firm of my choice beginning next year! Praise God!

Joining the rat race soon.....

I'm moving into a dreadful new phase of life which will come with heavier responsibilities and a very important phase that will chart the future of my life. The signs are obvious now. A couple of friends and classmates have recently tied the knot a few years after they joined the rat race. It felt weird at the wedding receptions because we no longer talk about studies or girls but we ask questions like 'where are you working now?', 'what do you do?', 'when are you getting married?' that sort of thing. It freaks me out lah!

I'm trying to keep myself occupied with all sorts of activities while I'm still in Penang. Thank God, those from down under are all back in Penang for summer. It's a very rare opportunity for us to get together and try to relive our secondary school days.

Oh I'm getting baptized this Sunday! Finally :D Did any of you in Penang watch my church's Christmas production at Dewan Sri Pinang last night? If you haven't, tonight is your last chance to watch it. Go early, otherwise you'll have to watch it on the projector outside the auditorium. The traffic downtown will be a nightmare this weekend thanks to the long weekend and the ongoing motor-racing Cub Prix in Esplanade. Okay, I'm going out now. Till then. Merry Christmas!

Folks in KL, catch up with you guys next year! :D
