After some good rest in Miri and a short trip to Bintulu, I am back to Singapore refreshed and ready for the semester rush! I sure miss alot of football news during the break. I totally am outdated with so many events. Diarra signing for Real Madrid and Martins signing for Newcastle United are really two good news for me. They are really good players who will help both clubs alot this coming season.

The victory of Liverpool in the Charity Shield and another defeat of Chelsea to Middlesbrough were some really shocking news to me. What happened to the strongly reinforced Chelsea? The Champions League group stage draw is out too! It is extremely shocking to see Chelsea meeting Barcelona again! Mourinho must be cursing the system this time, hahaha! Werder Bremen is in the same group too so it will probably be the toughest group.

Real Madrid were drawn into a group of average difficulty with difficult opponents Lyon and Dynamo Kiev. Valencia and AS Roma are in the same group, Internazionale and Bayern Munich are in the same group, Liverpool, PSV Eindhoven, and Galatarasay are in the same group, Manchester United with Celtic and Benfica, Arsenal with FC Porto and AC Milan with Anderlecht. This will mean Liverpool and AC Milan have the easiest groups.

Barcelona's defeat in the European Super Cup to Sevilla is another major shock. A small slim victory may be possible but a 3-0 victory? That's unimaginable. Still, Zambrotta and Lilian Thuram were not playing so maybe it could be much better if they had. The defeats of both Chelsea and Barcelona gave hope to other clubs that nobody is unbeatable. This will give them great passion to play these big clubs.

Sarawak is extremely hot and hazy. Miri is like so heaty like a microwave while Bintulu is not far behind but it cools off so much by evening. I drove to Bintulu for a one day trip through the new road and going back using the old road. The old road was like a nightmare with the condition which is extremely bad! I wonder how people can drive through that road without much complaints.

Will update soon, just arrive in Singapore.
