LIVERPOOL FC in Singapore (AWESOME TRIP!...)

No Daniel... call the cab now... I am starving! (Taken from Kajang-Today's photo album)

At the steps of Anfield... hmmm Kallang Stadium to be exact... (Kajang-Today's album)

While I joined the crowd brandishing the banner, that no.7 fella chose to stand still... what la... (Kajang-Today's album) And below are the photos from my own camera...

No drinks were allowed, so we have to finish it outside. It was an isotonic drink yaaa...

That guy wearing a crown paints retro kit is Zaidi a.k.a Kajang-Today. The jersey was brand new and he was nonchalantly changed his shirt in the cab - to the silent bemusement of the driver. hehehe

This were `our people'... in the Kallang Stadium...

I have to give Daniel a crash-course on how to take a proper shot. This is blur laaaa...

The chanting & singing was as loud when we're leaving the stadium and like an army of reds, the view was quite breathtaking!


  1. To be among your `own people' - in a sea of red shirts, chanting and singing the familiar songs, together in a mexican waves, celebrating the goal fiesta of 5 and of course, Fernando Torres's goal was as authentic as we see in the TV and why Dirk Kuyt is highly rated by Rafa... he was instrumental in the 2 goals and always a threat on the right flank. To see with your own eyes, to feel the magnitude of the stadium and to held high the LFC scarf while singing YNWA - was surreal for me. hmmm... I'll do it again next season...

  2. I started the journey from home at about 6.30am on Sunday and midway was met with a heavy rain. Kajang-Today was waiting for me at a mamak stall in Jalan 2 off Jalan Chan Sow Lin. That was the earliest breakfast I ever had since last Ramadan. The last member of our entourage was Daniel and we stopped again at Ayer Keroh for another breakfast. We arrived in JB at about 12.30 noon.

  3. We crossed the causeway at about 2.30pm and met with an old friend of Daniel's who took us to some interesting shopping mall. I must say that Queensway is the place that all of you must go when ever you're in that island republic. Not only the choices were great, but also if you're lucky (like us) we got some cool discounts. Kajang-Today bought himself a retro jersey with no.7 at the back. He said it was Kenny Daghlish. I got myself a rain-jacket which I have been eyeing for many moons and another shirt for a cool S$55 (in KL it is priced RM220).

  4. Because of that also, we were `almost' late to go to the Kallang Stadium located on the other side of the island. While walking towards the stadium you could see people emerging from every corner wearing the Liver bird attire. Be it the current jersey or the yester years collection, including the not-so-memorable yellow Reebok...

  5. We were eyeing also for some stalls that could be selling merchandise within the stadium vicinity but to no avail. Oppss... it's Singapore, man! They don't do this kind of business... So we went in and of course, all the lower level seating were already fully occupied and we have to find a quite high-altitude seating. Never mind, as long as we're there... the mission is accomplished.

  6. We made it back to Stulang at about 11pm and were starving like mad. We ordered some serious foods and to my astonishment, the bill was only RM50! That's a friction of what I have expected with ikan pari bakar masak sambal, tomyam campur, daging merah, kerabu mangga and two rounds of drinks. By the time we reach our hotel, it was a matter of seconds to switch off everything! Too exhausted already.And we arrived back to KL at about 12.30pm and I was sleeping the whole afternoon... jet-lag?

  7. I don't wish to write too long about the game, after all... the gap between the Singaporean first 11 were huge. They obviously not on the same par with Liverpool, thus the score line. But Kuyt was so impressive. I have never ridiculed him and now I am more determined that Kuyt will be playing forever with Liverpool and on his way to become another legend for us.

  8. I told Kajang-Today over and over again that from now on, we must start a proper planning to go to Anfield, within this year. The air ticket won't be an issue because aside than AirAsia, our own national carrier is competing nicely with them and therefore, will offer some interesting package to the UK. However, the most challenging part would be to get a ticket into the stadium. I will have to ask for your help to assist in this matter - in any way. Perhaps, we should do it in a bigger ways? All the LFC bloggers joining in and have a historic visit to Anfield? Prepare RM5k at least.
