argh...Japan lost 3-2 to Saudi Arabia...

or was it supposed to be Japan lost 2-3 to Saudi Arabia...

anyway...u get my point...

日本チーム負けた…

i didn't intend to watch this football (soccer) match...i didn't even know Asian Cup was on...haha, i'm very outdated on sportsnews these days...i have cut down watching football since i started college, i don't even watch TV now...i only watch football when coincidentally i have a tv in front of me when there's a match on, that also depends on what teams are playing...

so, there i was, in Upperstar, a cafe-pub concept restaurant...the design is like a cafe, open-air on the ground floor, partly open air upstairs, and they have another extension upstairs which i like to call 'new-wing', that actually is on the next block of building which is interconnected...

ok, i suck at describing...will take some photos on my next visit...

why was i there? my intention was to study for my insurance agent license exam...again, yes, continue from yesterday...

sat on a cozy sofa at the New Wing...a tv placed at the top front direction of my seat...yes, i was alone...i ain't going back to Ronald's place, can't study there if we're gonna end up talking about business again...

ordered a carrot juice...and opened my book...da da da...and my order came...had a sip...glanced up...and saw a match going on, 22nd minute into the match...three 'uncles' sitting on the next table were saying, "Japan match...is that LIVE?" hmm...ok...lemme see...Asian Cup...Japan VS Saudi Arabia...okay, interesting match! there's an indicator on tv showing "LIVE" ok, it's really LIVE...MORE INTERESTING...

so i watched for a while...players passing the ball, missing to the opponent team...gets the ball back...loses again...DAH! better read my book...

then at the 36th minute, i glanced up again...saw them replaying the Arabian player scoring the first goal of the match...OUCH! unhappy with Saudi Arabia's goal, the Japanese strive and their effort fruited...with 1 goal to match with the Saudi's...COOL~ go go Japan!

went back to my book again...

1st half finished with a 1-1 draw...

2nd half...the Arabians score again after 2 minutes into the match...Japan chased for another goal and finally matched the Arabians for 2-2 on the 53rd minute...

ugh...this is getting boring...if Saudi Arabia scores again, that's it for Japan...

and so i jinxed it...

4 minutes later...another goal from the Arabian side...the score maintained until the end of the match...

so for the finals, Saudi Arabia will meet Iraq...and for the 3rd & 4th place, we will have Japan vs Korea...

and after paying the bills for a carrot juice and an apple juice which i ordered seeing that there's still 20 minutes until the match ends, i went to the loo cuz nature's calling...and left for home...

how much did i study this time? 1 and a half chapter...at least some improvement from yesterday! i have too much distractions going on...why don't i study at home? see what i'm doing right now?

haha. I get distracted pretty easily. That's why I need to study in a place where there's nothing to do there except to study

Well there was a study area at the school I went to where there was nothing to do but study. The problem with that was I always fell asleep there. haha

oo...those..the study room... yeah like i can study in those...-.-" if i'm alone, i think i can...but if i'm with my friends, they'll be fooling around, doing magic tricks, hitting each other, cracking up jokes, disturbing each other when we're about to get absorbed in our books...ahh...the good 'ol college years...
