THE CUP THAT WE WON IN ISTANBUL 2005

This is the Big Ear, the 5th we got and it is placed in the lobby of LFC's training centre in Melwood, Liverpool.

When ever you feel down or anxious or unsettling, it is better to think of other positive memories. Personally, I like to rewind to the Istanbul night in 2005. I was in Japan, covering the Malaysian Prime Minister visit and had the best of time listening to the Japanese commentators screaming Alonso...Alonso... Gerrardo...Gerrardo... Goooooallllll....!!!! Being in the hotel room alone (my media mates then were not football enthusiast) at 4am-6am, it is not advisable for anyone to make a commotion, what more to shout or jumping. So I did the Mr.Bean celebration. All the facial expression but without any sounds!

I went into the Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi press conference at 9am, smiling from ear to ear but failed to ask any question. My body was there but my soul were `dancing in the streets of Istanbul'..,.!!!
Thus, when given the opportunity to be this close to the coveted cup, our 5th and the most realistic to our generation (the last time it was won, I was still a kid who prefered Hotspur's jersey) I had to do the 5 fingers! Glad to share with all of you. YNWA!

Seksanya terasa bila hati teramat gembira, tapi tak dapat bersorak gempita...hihi. Kenangan terindah buat Jo, yang akan kekal dan abadi. Bila mengingati pengalaman manis macam ni, ia lebih membahagiakan diri kita dari memberi tumpuan pada pengalaman buruk. Semoga Jo sukses dan terus berjaya... : D
