this post is long due. oh my. I think the world cup fever has subsided and the young olympic fever is coming to singapore.
So happy that Spain won the 1st world cup title. well done! I only watched the last few mins of the world cup during the extra time. I woke up and saw the spanish guy no 6 scored a goal. and the end of the game with no penalty. I actually wanted to watch the 3rd/4th placing but I had to miss it because of volunteer work. But was so shocked that many people went to Kopitiam square at Sengkang to watch the 3rd/4th placing when the bus stopped there.
