And that's the way the cookie crumbles.


The rains couldn't keep us away.

Neither could the massive traffic jams.

We beat all the odds and made it to the Grand Old Dame, the Kallang National Stadium close to half-time.

The red army was in full force and it was pleasing to the eye.

Unfortunately i couldn't deck myself in the national colours 'cos my red attire are all back in campus.

But i still made it.

It was great i tell you.

Singapore vs Malaysia matches are always fun to watch.

They always have drama in them.

Yesterday was no exception.

Though they silenced the crowds in the second half, we managed to come back.

I think the team owed it to the National Stadium more than ever.

It wasn't about the fans.

I think it was about letting the Old Dame bow out gracefully.

And what a way to let the fat lady sing man!

I could barely breathe everytime a player took his place at the penalty spot.

And i screamed and jumped up and down whenever the players made the goal.

Me and the boyfriend got ecstatic when Lionel saved that last penalty kick.

And when the whole game was over,

the heavens opened its skies and the rain enveloped us all in glory.

I'm a romantic. What can i say?


SINGAPORE BEATS MALAYSIA ON PENALTIES (6-5)


And then we all went for some ayam penyet.

What a great way to spend a saturday night.
