This is always the sad part.. IMO, Arsenal reserve keeper Almunia did a great job with the saves, but I guess he got tired in the later part of the game. Eto'o's goal was offside! That's an unfair decision by the referee.

So, Barca still remains as Europe's best team, Arsenal's gonna give it another shot next year!

Hot Hot Hot!! Bright Bright Bright!!

Personally, I don't know how am I going to live my days back in M'sia..

The weather here is somewhat cooling at 17-18C max during daytime, but when it goes up to 23-25 .. I can barely hang on to the heat. The body feels like little gas bubbles wanting to pop and release hot air, it feels as if it's a kettle whistling it's head off.

Another thing is .. I hate the sunlight!

In real time, when they say it's sunset.. means it's sunset, but the sky doesn't go dark till about 40 minutes later..

It's just "Ahhh, I wanna sleep" everytime I wake up at 6 because of the sun.. now I don't need any alarm clocks anymore, just trust the sun~

Chem. Practical Task :)

This time it's educational, since I've been given the practical planning paper for Chemistry OCR.


I have to try to find out the number of moles of water of crystallisation in a mole of hydrated sodium carbonate by heating the crystals. I have no idea how to do this experiment or how to work out the moles from the results. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Jenkin replies: I will suggest an outline for this task but you will need to think out some of the practical details yourself. Essentially, you need to take a known mass of the crystals and heat them to drive off the water of crystallisation. A crucible or small evaporating dish would be a suitable vessel. Allow to cool and then reweigh. To ensure that all the water has been driven off you will need to heat again, allow to cool and weigh again, this to be repeated until the weight is constant. The calculation can be along these lines:

Mass of hydrated crystals: a grams

Mass of water of crystallisation (loss in mass of crystals): b

Mass of anhydrous sodium carbonate: (a – b)

Moles of anhydrous sodium carbonate, Na2CO3: (a – b) / molar mass: call this
d moles of Na2CO3)

Moles of H2O: b / molar mass: call this e moles of H2O

So now we know that d moles of Na2CO3 are combined with e moles of H2O and , therefore, that 1 mole of Na2CO3 will be combined with d / e moles of H2O.

The second part is titration, which I am still trying to research out. So far, no luck.. Going to look into my Chemistry Bible later for some enlightenment.


Evidently I trust most people will have known what means, judging from the major ruckus caused by a newspaper in Malaysia.

The unusual time and date has attracted little attention in Britain but Asia is excitedly counting down to the event. A Malaysian newspaper is challenging readers to send in a text message exactly at the time when the numbers are aligned.

Quoted from the Daily Mail newspaper.


Seriously, little things like this do we have to make a big commotion about until it appears in British newspapers?

Daily Mail astrologer Jonathan Cainer said, 'Astroleogers don't take too seriously earth time. We are much more interested in star time. But this Thursday is a relatively auspicious time for most people astrologically. 'If we see this moment as special, it's a way to remind us that every moment is special. It's a little spark into the insight of the mechanism which is greater than us.'


Another amazing date will arrive in another 72 years. At 12.34 on June 5 2078, it will be 12345678 - or 12:34 on 5/6/78.

How about June 6 2006 or 06/06/06? Some pregnant women due to give birth on that date are concerned that it chimes too closely with 666, the Biblical number of the beast, reports the tabloid.

Hmm, what will happen to babies born on that day? May them be blessed..


A dry breeze is blowing
The city is getting cold
I wonder how many seasons have passed
without even a sound?
All of the people coming and going
bear heavy burdens,
searching for tomorrow
within the heat haze wavering in the distance.

Feelings like sand
falling through my hands...
Back then, the words that pierced my heart
suddenly started to throb with pain, but...

I've searched for pieces of myself,
counting the endless nights all the while.
These feelings are becoming so certain
I almost lose myself.
Right now, without fail, I will walk forward, however far.

I wonder, why is the sky so vast?
Even though I tried to yell,
my voice didn't come
and the tears poured out.

I wonder where the birds are flying off to,
as they freely slice through the wind?
One can't return to the same place
as it once was in days gone by.

Even if I give up my dream like this,
I won't suppress my soaring heartbeat.
Someday, I want to reach
as high as the clouds. [1]
I'll spread wide the wings in my heart and journey once again

I will reach it, without fail.

I've searched for pieces of myself,
counting the endless nights all the while.
These feelings are becoming so certain
I almost lose myself.
Right now, without fail, I will walk forward, however far.
