As the nich had put it..... the wait will be worth our while..... the nonsense davids is gonna get smashed..... u know i have never been as psyche up for any match as this..... its like the whole botakgang... left flank, right flank, centre... everyone wants a piece of them.... i can feel myself kicking their butts already....

u know... we must not neglect the rest of the gay ass choir boys.... sure there is "the ONE who wears goggles on land".. but there is also "the ONE with J-Lo's ass"..... the other centre mid who thinks he is playmaker shen..... and there is also " the ONE that thinks he is human ICQ" ..... the one and only dot dot....

now i have reasons to believe that they croon to the tune of champions league theme song before the start of their matches...... a form of pre match ritual...... unfortunately.... the only tune which they will croon after the match against the botaks will be " i'm juz a teenage dirtbag baby.... cos i'm juz a teenage dirtbag baby...."

the revenge is ours... make no mistake......

wah... nich u quite king leh... managed to remember the pirates of carrebians talk... neway i'll offer a much more understandable phrase to stress on our match agst the davids team... JUST FUCK THEM...

Ahoy me hearties and all land-lubbing one-eyed swabs..this buccaneering corsair of yours truly just looked over the monkey-ass of "The One who wears goggles on land"..he was so shit scared the bilge-sucking addlepate was actually stammering!i'll betcha all a doubloon each that no-good son of a lubber wet his pants.not that we could ever fault him for that, make him walk the plank and vist Davy Jones' locker..or hang him top-over-bottom and flog him..no no no we self-respecting corsairs would ne'er do that,savvy?even pirates play by the rule sometime,ye know.

so the situation lies herein..them scurvy poxies've declared no-show on weekdays..that leaves weekends to do battle.no worries lads..even if war is waged on rough seas,we're gonna make 'em kiss the grub just the same.then they can swab our decks for us while we count them booty.

so maties..prepare to weigh anchor and make full the sails..raise the Jolly Roger and make 'em cower!keep yeselfs in shipshape..this wait would be worth our while. i say we put the Black Spot of their brethren on 'em..raid 'em handsomely after..then feed 'em to the fish,si?and wipe them poxy grins off them grimey faces while we sail away into the setting sun, all joy and merry-making, singing the old shanty and tasting the rum of our labour, aye?

to arms me bruvers, to arms.revenge is ours.the blood debt shall be repaid.
the dead shall tell no tales.

Hallo one and all this is Melanie! Shaun teoh just accidentally on purpose deleted his own entry and so i have to type for him now cause he is too busy tearing out his hair. Cause he wrote some super long entry about how he has been secretly in love with Huang Jian An for the past five years. Ever since he saw Jian An buying fishball noodles in the RI canteen... and they both reached for the same chopstick in the chopstick holder... it was love at first sight...

    hey guys the photos are up!

    1:02 AM

    hey man...guess one of the most impt thing in soccer n often neglected is THROw-IN...so i found a huge chunk abt throwing in n share with u guys...v interesting so muz read

    Soccer throw-in technique and tactics is one of the more deglected skills of the game of football. With the correct technique, effecttive training drills, and some tactical awareness, a team cab make much better use of opportunities during a game.


    The throw-in technique starts by gripping the ball firmly, but comfortably. The ball is brought back over the head, and the back is arched. Using the full extent of the arms, and the power of the back and shoulders the ball is released in front of the head. The feet position is a matter of personal preference with some player standing square and other placing one foot in front of the other. The final ingredient is to add a short run to generate rhythm and momentum.

    Tactics at the throw-in in soccer depend on where on the pitch the throw is being taken from. In the attacking third of the pitch, the objective is to get the ball into the penalty area as soon as possible either by a direct throw, or by creating an opening for a cross. In the middle third, the tactic should be to make forward runs. In the defensive third, the team must play safe, and try to create space to clear the ball away from danger. Useful tactics for creating space are overlapping runs, sudden changes of direction and decoy runs. In an overlapping run, players run towards each other overlapping in the middle. A decoy run could take a marker away from the player, you would like to throw to.

    10:30 AM

    hey guys juz 2.5 hrs frm my maths s paper... tried to do prelim s paper of last year and thus i GAVE up cuz even though i had the solutions to the question i still didnt understand how to do it...

    AY choo when we playing the david's team.... hurry up arrange cuz we must avenge our horrendous draw agst them the last time. Abt what nich said earlier on, i dont tink u are totally at fault for our defensive laspes on sat. soccer is a team game cant point the finger at one individual... similarly, we cant balme choo for missing one on one chance...actualli we can!haha

    maybe the mid shud haf backtracked a little bit more on sat... however with our present fitness not many or maybe only benedict can afford to run up and down...
    so the bulk of the responsibily in holding the fort lies with our defence.. if we play like rj where our mid mark the other mid the we will prob achieve what rj achieved... lots of goaless matches.

    ok gtg now... hope to play soon.

    hey fellow botaks... heh just wan to say something after the match.... i think we played well today...although we will need to step up a gear or two against the likes of the mat team and maybe the ali baba team... oh just wan to thank the people that assisted the goals today... yah thanks du... the goal should be credited to you and not me lah.. u did the work i just had to put it in the net..... haha actually for those that didnt know du assist quite a few for me already lah.. for rjc and now for botaks... thanks again... hope more assist to come from you.... the square ball backwards after u run down the flanks is dem good...i told shaun and keith to do it many times but they havent done it yet...but i know they will soon....cos i will always be there to shoot and most of the time i'm open....the defenders all like to chiong towards the goal so if u square out sure can score one....
    sometimes in soccer the assist is more important than the goal so maybe a column in the website should have top assist also haha... but choo and his stupid argument abt his indirect assist is really ridiculous haha... But choo had a good assist today..great cross and not one of those rolling ten metres KILLERS...haha..
    Yah and ANdy scored a good goal today... first time shot..great things to come from Bellamy...although newcastle looks like they will join the likes of west ham and fellow Division 1 clowns next year...
    OH yah things i think we can improve on....
    1. Calmness on the ball- sometimes we tend to want to chuck the ball to someone else because we are afriad of losing the ball and getting scolded. BUt the right thing to do is control the ball if u are open and look out for options....
    2. Support to the guy with the ball- always give the guy with the ball two options so that we can form a triangle and then it will be hard for the opponent to get the ball.
    3. Build up the attack-pass the ball around in the defence and wait for people to be open then pass dun pump blindly cos we will just lose possesion. switch play in the midfield and always look back for the support.

    K thats all for now.....hope to see u all soon and maybe we will put in yet another sterling performance.......

    ok guys it was a really good win today..haha din realise isaac hasn't scored before this match..it was a good goal..hope there's more to come dude..
    regarding wat mian said bout our defence..sigh i really hoped tt this would be our second clean sheet..we've only got one so far..but due to their last minute effort we still let in a goal..e 'abiel' centre mid also hit tiang twice..and i was totally responsible for e major blunder in e second half after wayne missed e ball..i apologise guys..so i think e defence got let off e hook major.
    i think e rest of e defence played really well today..though liang was spending a lotta time holding his hips..but i think i made most of e mistakes and bloopers today..so e defence shouldn't take e blame.
    like i said before..i'd try my very very best to play well and improve..hope this bad streak doesn't last too long..but kudos to e rest of e team..we excelled in almost every department..scoring good goals tt were really pleasing on e eye..looking forward to our next match man..smash e davids team..i'll try my best.

    11:25 PM

    yoz dudes..... this is POST MATCH COMMENTS by your friendly neighbourhood soccer analyst

    Match : Chueng Cheng Boys vs Botakgang (A)
    Score : 1-3 botak victory

    it was a rather interesting match today.....

    chueng cheng team was quite an attacking one...... especially the cambodian....... "he is fast man" according to the liang who was out ran by him.... but i'll have to say that cambodian is a sly and cunning customer..... lets analyse the cheeky tatics he used....

    firstly.... he frickin took off his shirt to show that he is cambodian..( sun-burnt black body... signs of a cambodian ) this was an effective barrier to stop opponents from tackling him... wats more..... his body was full of black mud...... so defenders would think again before barging against him...... effective tatic.... i will give it 2 stars

    secondly, he keep falling......... think his legs quite lembei.... (wobbly).... where got anyone nudge nudge a bit then fall down so easily one..... but to make his stunt look credible.... he manages a loud "ARGH..." and then gives a bitter face when he stands up and says " i don't anyhow shout for fouls one ok" and " tackle pple like that no good larh...." indeed he reminds me of those "kare le fare" (extras) in movies and drama serials... where they are required to get killed on a massive scale and then fall to the ground shouting curses at the pple that killed them..... ( imagine saving private ryan ) occasionally... promising "kare le fares" will emerge.... and the director will upgrade their roles to the ones that carry their dismembered arm running across the screen ( again recall saving private ryan ) or head kenna blown off those kind...... back to the serious topic... i shall give him 2 stars and an oscar.... and maybe an audition to maureen's next video production.....haha

    lastly.... he was sneaky larh...... so sneaky until i find it very dumb.... he was standing near the edge of the field as tho he got substituted out... acting non-chalant to the happenings on the field..... again i stress the word...."ACTING".... then he suddenly sprung to life when the ball reached our half.... and chiong down the flank..... for his inventiveness and innovation with coming up with such a sneaky, underhand and shameless cover up which we saw thru even before it began.... i shall give him 2 stars

    now.... back to analysis of the match..... it was good larh our play..... tho our fitness is like shit..... really..... even the usually won't get cramp shaun teoh was limping off the field today.... a rather clear indication that we are dem dem unfit already...

    bellamy andy chong (chiong) scored on his debut for us.... it was a stunning goal which he thoroughly deserved.... then izac went on to shoot between the hands of the keeper.. making his goal debut for botak.... so 2 fresh new scorers for the botaks.... to add icing on the cake..... mian (me) scored a header (tempted to say a well aimed header which left the keeper no chance ) ..... to make the score 3-0.... total dominance.... ( also tempted to say: the mian is now joint top goal scorer with teoh, keith, choo...hahaha)

    to sum up the first half.... we were all like dem tired.... firstly i have to apologise for slakcing so much in the first half..... really not mentally prepared enough.... thats y kept walking..... wats more, the opponents kept the pressure on us and was the better team for first half..... if this trend continues arh we may have difficulty playing the davids team cos they have fricking unlimited subs......

    2nd half everyone played their game better, tho there was nearly a major screw up back in defence...... today.... botak defence was dem shaky...... we need to strengthen our defence to have any chance against stronger attacking opponents... so far we haven't kept many clean sheets..... and we were lucky to escape unscathed (only one goal) today..... i guess after slacking for the first half everyone played harder (including the mian who started to run at last)..... incidentally... records have shown that mian's strike rate as cm is quite high... played centre mid 4 times in all of the botak matches and has already scored 3... thats a 75 percent strike rate.... quite good....hahahaha ( actually its only 3 matches larh mian was injured when playing the esmond team ).....hahahaha

    ok.... to conclude.... botakgang seems to be heading in the right direction..... winning matches comfortably..... but they'll have to improve their defences if they want to challenge the big teams in singapore... and they must also have their resident striker start scoring.... if not...ahem ahem......hahaha......

    by the way.... today we juz signed our new coach.... han boon ( aka carlos boon quieroz )..... who will lead the charge by also playing as the striker, right mid, right back, and goalkeeper.... the utility man with 5 positions.... an asset to any team lacking a striker and right mid and right back and goalkeeper and coach.....

    thats all folks

    neway viets or davids also anithing la... can play good already... but wads this bout rj players and kadir? whatever happened to the love and equality? whatever happened to frenship and humanity? cannot intergrate them into our squad da although to discriminate is to generate hate and when u generate hate ure bound to get irate... but then think we shld leave out kadir and his recruits lor unless we all know the recruits then it mite be another different story altogether...

    mianster..life is good la dun think of silly thoughts.
    ok i think i shouldn't talk bout e prelims cos it's not a very nice thing to talk about..no one likes to talk bout e prelims(unless u've done pretty damn well for it or unless u're e du)..so i think i'll talk bout soccer cos it is e one thing tt we live for.
    e only thing tt keeps me going now is e match this wkend..cos it's been a really bad week..bad exams.so i hope tt it'll be an enjoyable match where e BOTAKS meet up after a long time of not seeing each other.whatever e result against e viet cong..i hope we have fun and play together and support n encourage each other as a team..a band of brothers.
    wow i'm becoming like e mian now..philosophical and sentimental.there's been some talk bout kadir becoming so desperate to beat e viet cong that he's asked some rj players to play in e match..hope it doesn't spoil anything.........fingers crossed.
    4 more papers for me in 3 more gruelling days..cant wait.see ya guys.

    hey guys.... hows everyone's prelims..... haha.... juz a week or 2 more only..... everyone must hang in there and survive ok!!!

    actually..... i'm here because i'm rather irritated.... haha... maybe its exam stress.... perhaps it is a process which we call "growing up"....... i dunno..... i went to check the dictionary juz now on a word which i knew little of juz now.....( pai seh... my vocab is not very good ).... sanguine..... the funny thing is that i always thought that it meant the same thing as melancholy....... haha..... but i am enlightened..... sanguine, on dictionary.com, means a cheerful and optimistic outlook...... ( ok jain?... following?... haha)

    if that is the case..... then i may describe myself as having a sanguine personality..... for its been a long time since i was last depressed..... i mean.... i could never find reasons enough to fill me with sadness....... life is always full of interesting things..... SOCCER..... BOTAKs..... i cannot even come close to grasping the meaning of the word melancholy....... Interesting enough, when the Pope in the Vatican City found out that his Pastors from around the world have been involved in sexual activities with young church boys, his famous reply was.... " I am saddened....." In a twist of ironical fate....right now...i too am saddened...... ( no no..... don't get me wrong i wasn't molested by any pastors don't worry.......)

    why? there is no simple one line explaination..... lets juz say that age has caught up with me.....

    in my last 1 plus years at Hwa Chong Junior College... ( yes yes the school which still instils communist idealogy... ), i have learnt a great many things.... how to do binomial expansions..... how mitosis and meiosis works..... haha..... stuff like that......

    As much as i disliked coming to HCJC in the first 3 months of last year.....right now i begin to feel that it has been ( for me and shaun ).... the ideal choice.... As former RI boys..... i think u would all agree with me that RI environment.... though fun and neat and squeaky clean on the surface.... there exists a conniving side to some of the more superficial friendships...... but RI was not as bad..... i gather from most of the botaks at RJ that this situation is worst there..... well..... i am not in a position to comment... but again thats wat i gather.... THE only reassurance that i have is that at least the BOTAKS are staying true to themselves and to each other..... that is so important..... that we are TRUE to each other and not hypocrites........ well..... as we get older..... we begin to lose this innocence.... thus.... the reason why i say that HCJC is the correct choice was that for the last one plus years.... HCJC has slowed down shaun and my decay of innocence.... it has retained in us wat little innocence we had.... made us see wat innocence is really all about.....

    innocence...... that we may see the truth behind things.... see the real "MATTERS of Consequence"......

    the story of the little prince ( please go read it guys ) had it that one day he was on his journey to a small planet.... and he saw a businessman doing his accounts..... when the little prince asked wat he was doing... he simply said that he was doing "Matters of Consequence"...... he said he was counting the number of stars there are out there.... and said that he owned them.... he has been doing that for all his life.... without doing anything else.... because it was the matter of upmost importance....... Perhaps we are like that as we become older..... but i don't wanna lose the innocence of seeing an elephant within a boa constrictor..... or the sheep in the box.

    with whatever remaining innocence left in me..... i suddenly had another insight.....

    those pple in 4a u should remember Chen Pei Fu our chinese teacher..... remember he said that the younger generation of pple are a sad bunch.... because they have no religion...... ( he said in chinese the words ke3 bei1 ) i must.... with all respect to all religions and Mr Chen, differ.......

    religion has always been part of my life.... when i was younger.. i was in a methodist school... so i prayed every single day and went to boys brigade to praise the lord on saturdays... i also went to temples on sundays with my parents and grandparents to burn offerings to Buddha... i basically thought that all religions are good..... to be respected.... because they teach us to be good....... Perhaps as one grows older.. his ideals of faith changes... he loses sight of wat is the fundamental of that religion...... loses innocence..... and strays from the original path which he had devoted to adhere to....

    wat makes me sad is that these pple regard themselves religious pple.... strong in faith.... and my main concern is that Hypocrisy springs from every corner of their lives.... Hypocrisy which they cannot see....... Hypocrisy which they are Unwilling to see....... Talking to such pple about such things vex me greatly..... and the last i tried i could only afford spurts of mindless laughter to fill in the silence after they had finished about their theology. they might have thought i was a little dumb or slow in the mind or something.... and they may even have the impression that i wasn't thinking hard enough about wat they said.........

    But i laughed........ because i could have easily dispelled every single theory they had to offer...... for they were brimming with hypocrisy so evident that even a child could discern....... Still..... i couldn't bear to dispel what they believe so strongly.... couldn't bear to argue with them for they are my friends..... SO..... i laughed.......

    what saddened me even more was that i was accused of not thinking enough.... and was rash in my decision..... ( what differentiates pple from animals is the ability to think.....) that was vaguely wat i was told...... but i am no orator...and i couldn't respond to them at that moment........ that is why i took my time to type this entry on exactly wat i wanted to express.... for i believe i am more gifted at writing than at speaking wats on my mind.....
    ( hopefully by some twist of fate that the intended readers of this entry will stumble upon the botakgang blog.... )

    that is why i think authors of children books are the least hypocritical pple around... they take their time to write what they want..... and they appeal to children...... which is indication that they have, in a way, imbued their innoncence into the books...... i like Roald Dahl......

    to sum everything up..... i'm not here to gather sympathy from all my fellow botaks..... i am sad... but will get over it.....

    I am here, spending 2 hours of my precious studying time.... because i feel it is a "MATTER of CONSEQUENCE" that i share my insights with u guys....... in time... i hope i am able to make my peace with GOD ...... and make peace with myself.......... and when my time comes... i hope i will have no regrets when facing him.....

    suddenly feel like writing something here.....haha..... and that is with regards to the issue of the botaks campaigning on multiple fronts......
    wat do i mean?..... let me explain.....

    first and foremost.... we have to deal with the most crucial event thus far in our 18 years of life....( with exception to the old cock.... make it 20 plus years of our life.....) and that is the A levels.... to view it in a way.... i think that preparing for A levels.... going to school and stuff is juz like campaigning in a soccer league... the consistent teams will of course emerge high up in the table...... of course the botaks are not really known for their consistency.... ( except for their consistency at slacking....... after wat issac said about 2 years of slacking that day.....) but some of us are gunning for a place in the champions league.... ( actually only adu is in the running for it...) So all the best to everyone for their campaign in this front.... and hopefully a last minute burst may propel us to the top half of the league table and not get relegated.....( like newcastle )

    secondly.... it is with regards to relationships...... i have come to realise that back in the good old days of RI...... our dinner time talk was always about soccer.... wat kinds of super goal one has downloaded from super Ulu sites........ there was seldom personal heart to heart talks about relationships....( ok not that i knew of larh..... ) the most vivid experiences of heart to heart talks that i could remember were 2 instances..... one at the Big mac donald's with a bunch of us surrounding Jain and forcing information and bed time stories from him...... and the other was at the chalet where we were consoling nich..... of course as usual i viewed these things as a waste of time back then..... so i didn't really go forth to say anything comforting to the Nich.... ( sorry arh dude.....) but somehow all these has changed...... now.... it seems that many of the botaks are also campaiging in another front..... which is the front regarding relationships...... ( eg. jio-ing girls... making them happy...) stuff like that......

    it is a heavy task to undertake....... in my opinion...... especially at times as crucial as these..... but according to Nich.... one shouldn't take such things as a chore...( celest... if u are reading this.... u got yourself a good bf.......) but i don't see how it may not affect studies...... perhaps it is a delicate balance which must be struck..... i really do not know...... ( due to the lack of experience )......... so all i can say to those campaigning in this front is....... good luck in finding the right balance........

    there are still other fronts which i have not explored.... but i don't feel like typing anymore......haha......... so i shall stop here and go eat something.... then maybe go study....... ( by the way soccer was quite fun yesterday....) yups ok see ya.......
