Viva la Vida

Finally, biggest football party event of the year, Euro Cup 2008, is over. Spain is the King of Europe after beating Germany 1-0 in the final. My prediction missed. Well, not missed too far. Germany went through final so it was only one spot missed. Although I like football so much, I didn't write comprehensive report of Euro 2008 because I though many blogs had already wrote that. So I was just enjoying others' posts while enjoying good Euro matches too. This post is my farewell to Euro 2008. I'm gonna miss event like this.

Like its slogan "Expect Emotions", it did bring emotions to all football fans all over the world. Millions felt happy and millions felt sad. Happy fans decreased day after day as usual. I too did kick my furnitures or throw my remote control many times when my favorite teams played. Like other millions people I'm sure.

So many emotions watching Euro 2008; happy, angry, disappointed, amazed, stunned and so on. Turkey and Russia had a chance to do like what Greece did 4 years ago but again, no more than had a chance. The staying power Germany and the impressive Spain conquered all 'third countries' to make a 'still' dream final.

Anyway, Spain had won the cup. I say congratulation to Spain and all its people and fans. No matter what, the best team would be the winner. And no matter what too, sport entertainment will always come and go. There will be Olympic Games in August, another entertainment for sport freaks.

Viva la vida (living life) everybody!

Our Lives

I'm now crazy about a song by The Calling titled Our Lives. Ever since the moment I heard of the song, it automatically became my favorite. The song sounds great, but it is the lyrics that do 'the calling' for me. It speaks of love, life, hope and faith. That no matter disappointed and heart-break we are, there's still a reason to continue on, to move on and there's a reason we're here in this world.

This song makes me excited to live my life - today! This song is awesome! Check out the lyric:

Is there love, tonight
When everyone's dreaming
Of a better life
In this world
Divided by fear
We've got to believe that
There's a reason we're here
Yeah, there's a reason we're here

Oh, yeah...

Cause these are the days worth living
These are the years we're given
And these are the moments
These are the times
Let's make the best out of our lives...

See the truth, all around
Ohh, our faith can be broken
Yea, our hands can be bound
Ohh, but open our hearts
And fill up the emptiness
With nothing to stop us
Is it not worth the risk?
Yeah, is it not worth the risk?

No, yeah...

Cause these are the days worth living
These are the years we're given
And these are the moments
These are the times
Let's make the best out of our lives...

And even if hope was shattered
I know it wouldn't matter
Cause these are the moments
These are the times
Let's make the best out of our lives...

We can't go on
Thinking it's wrong to speak our minds
I've got to let out what's inside

Is there love, tonight
When everyone's dreaming
Well can we get it right?
Yeah, well can we get it right?

Cause these are the days worth living
These are the years we're given
And these are the moments
These are the times
Let's make the best out of our lives...

And even if hope was shattered
I know it wouldn't matter
Cause these are the moments
These are the times
Let's make the best out of our lives...

Oh, yeah, let's make the best out of our lives...

Oh, yeah, let's make the best out of our lives...

It remains on my favorite list. Every time I hear this song, I will feel that I am needed by somebody and the urge to live the best of my life - so touching and so encouraging the song is.

Listen to this, get inspired to be the best of yourself and make the best out of your life.

China Punishes 128 Companies Over Performance-Enhancing Drugs

In preparation of welcoming World Olympic Games, which open in Beijing on August 8, this year. Chinese authorities are trying to show that they are intended to host a clean Olympic Games. They've just revoked licenses for 3 drug companies and punished 125 other companies for manufacturing, selling or distributing performance-enhancing drugs.

The government did not release a complete list of companies involved in production and distribution of illegal drugs, but said it would all be punished according to law and that tougher penalties should be measured on companies that illegally distribute performance-enhancing drugs before or during the Olympic Games.

Chinese authorities disputed the claim by the United States that China have accounted for 99 percent of the illicit performance-enhancing drugs uncovered in the largest drug-enforcement action in U.S. history last year.

Last year, the Drug Enforcement Administration said that the U.S. government has not been approved for imports and counting on China to stop the flow of the resources, China was asked to investigate the 37 drug manufacturers.

The investigation of the Chinese Ministry of Public Security showed that 13 of 37 companies had exported certain ingredients but most of them were doing legal business, some even with the consent of the Drug Enforcement Administration itself. Of the remaining 24, he said, 17 were not registered and provided false information so further investigation would be continued.

In periods of 1980's and 1990's, China faced a series of doping scandals involving some of its top athletes. But after that, China has produced a large numbers of world-class athletes with only a few doping scandals, although some international competitors accused the Chinese athletes of cheating.

Maria Ozawa is Out of Top 50 AV Idols

Based on latest list by Japan Heat, Maria Ozawa is no longer top idol in Japan adult video (AV) industry (view complete list here).

"Hey, who's Maria Ozawa?"

Oops, sorry. I thought you knew Maria Ozawa since she was on top of google search for couple of months. Okay, I'll tell you who she is. Maria Ozawa aka Miyabi is a Japanese adult video star. She is of mixed-race parentage. Her mother is Japanese and her father is French-Canadian, which gives her a look that has been described as "a perfect balance of Japanese beauty mixed with a dash of exoticism." Here is her profile:

  • Birthdate: January 8, 1986
  • Zodiac: Capricorn
  • Birthplace: Hokkaido
  • Blood type: A
  • Height: 162 cm (5 ft 4 in)
  • Measurements: 88-58-86 cm (35-23-34 in)
  • Cup: E
  • Hobby: Guitar
  • Special skill: English language (I'm sure this is not her only skill)

"All right, now I know her. You can continue writing."

Thank you.

AV industry, just like any other showbiz industry is a tough dog-eat-dog business. People come and go. A new-born star rises every week. Younger girls keep coming ready to dethrone mature princesses. This is supply and demand law. While demand is so high now - as any other times, producers need to up their supply. That's why this thing happen; Maria Ozawa got stepped out of top list.

However, no matter what list her name's on, she's still my favorite. I'll still search for her videos when I'm out of stock. I hope she keep performing on new videos.

Oh by the way, other prominent names not on Top 50 Japan AV Idols anymore are Mihiro Taniguchi, Azusa Ayano and Serina Hayakawa.

"Wait a minute, who are those names you mentioned?"

Well, I'm quite certain now that this post is not for you.

Do you like celebrity gossips? Fashion shows? Sport Illustrated swimsuits? Video music clips? Or even Indie movies? Good news, you can have it all on internet for free.

People who might need to look for the videos badly.

Marhaban Ya Euro 2008

Welcome Euro 2008, the biggest football event in Europe this year. It's only two days from first whistle blow. I've been waiting this event for months. I'm so excited to see the first kick off.

Well, I'm sure every football lover has his/her own favorite. My favorite, like always, is Germany. I like Germany Bundesliga since the time of TVRI as the only broadcast station in Indonesia, aired Bundesliga in late 80's. I watched almost every match accompanying my grandpa who also loved it. May be because I had no choice that time. No other leagues aired here. Italian Serie A aired in Indonesia in early 90's but I still couldn't watch it until '96. RCTI frequency couldn't reach my village until that time.

After Italian Serie A, then came other European leagues one by one; English Premiere League, Dutch Eredivision and Spanish Liga Primera. Thank God I live in Indonesia so I have the privilege to choose any match I want to watch from top European soccer leagues for free. The privilege even origin citizens don't have.

I can watch the coming Euro 2008 on 3 stations for free even though I'd love to fly to Austria-Switzerland if I have money. Thank you MNC media for bringing this quality event to us, football lovers. I hope you'll get big profit in return.

To express my excitement, I can only say, "Marhaban Ya Euro 2008!".
