Italy didn’t make it to Russia. I wasn’t keeping track like previous tournaments.
I couldn’t remember which country is in which group. I can’t remember which countries are playing on which day, and after I watched the match, I forget most of the match.
Nevertheless, this is an enjoyable World Cup. Love the passion of the footballers who care.
Some of the match I remember:
Mexico 1 Germany 0
S Korea 2 Germany 0 (2 goals in the last few minutes that sent Germany home and Mexico to 2nd round)
Germany 2 Sweden 1 <Sweden would have won if they do not park the bus in the second half>
France 4 Argentina 3 (Argentina was leading 2-1 after halftime, but the better team won. The spinning goal from Pavard was like from Shaolin Soccer).
Uruguay 2 Portugal 1 ( Cavani !! He reminded me of Canniggia)
England 6 Panama 1 (the joyous celebration of Panama for their 1st World Cup goal; also Harry Kane)
France 2 Australia <1st time penalty given via VAR, 2nd goal was via goal line technology>
Half a year has gone. Decided to take a break from work on last week of June.
Decided to take care of myself.
Before the ‘vacation’, went for a dental checkup. Didn’t realise I haven’t went for a checkup for 4 years.
Went for a 2nd opinion for my knee and have an expensive injection. Still painful after walking too much but I can climb stairs 🙂 Hopefully the injection works fully as I learnt that the benefit should be felt after 4 weeks.
Have checkup on my eyes. The last checkup was a decade ago. Luckily, no major problem 🙂 Made a new spectacles.
Finally, decided to take care of the hyper pigmentation of my face. Hope it works 💸💸
I also replaced the battery on my iPhone. Really worth the $38 as the battery was draining very fast prior to the replacement.
Also bought a pair of shoes as the current working shoes are more than 5 years.
Spent so much money just in the month of June. But, 💸💸💸💸💸is for my health and personal grooming. I should not neglect myself.
Didn’t update this blog for more than a month.
How I spent my May :
Been working extremely hard. Busy does not equal to productivity. So much things are not up to my control.
Bringing parents for medical checkups.
Usually eat alone with low expectations of food. But happy that do have gatherings with old friends, new colleagues and family members.
Still playing Pokémon. Been going many places just to spin new pokestops just for the extra points. Been catching and raiding to catch shinies with no success. Been watching concerts. Been overseas for holidays and staycation with family. Walk too much for this game.
Binged watch 愛。回家.
Read a few books, including Invoices which is about invoice for emotions.
Played in the pools although I can’t swim.
Cycled for two hours. Tiring but happy.
Probably the first time I read about chaos theory was from Michael Crichton’s novel. I was very impressed then because no matter how the butterfly flaps it’s wings, life still go on and it doesn’t affect me.
WRONG. I try to ignore everything about the current USA president and all the international turmoil that he brings. I am selfish, I just don’t care over things that is beyond my control. I am not American and I didn’t choose that 人渣 to be president.
However, whenever that rascal points his finger over whichever country that he is mad at the moment, the whole world has to follow where his tiny finger points. Because of him, we have more form to ask customers to declare that they have no dealing with certain countries which offended that tiny small man.
I am getting more and more turn off by USA style of democracy. Go around telling other countries about human right, but yet allow anybody to buy a gun, a weapon designs to kill. And we have to be emphatic of mental health problem whenever white boys went around mass killing. In the meantime, three black men were handcuffed because they did not order anything in Starbucks.
I am neither rightist, leftist, conservative, liberal and those branding. I am just an individual who is sick that a tiny man in a superpower affecting my working life so much.
My rant after sick from overwork from too many deadlines because of international events.
Social justice warrior and grammar nazi, you are not welcome.
Often alone, but seldom lonely.
I am loneliest when I am in a crowd.
