Rich wha???

Nothing much more relaxing than spend my leisure time watching movies. I really do love watch movies so much, from action movies to all the romantic stuffs (minus horror+thriller) i watch with uttermost, my life's getting better as ENL lect, miss Dil gave us the chance to watch selected movies during the class (we love u miss Dil.),in return we have to make a movie review from the movies we watched. So,l ast week we finished watch 'Coach Carter',, another typical basketball movies based on true story that sets out in Richmond,CA.
Ken Carter, a succesful sports equipment seller took responsibility as a coach where he twice became the student athlete for that school during his highschool years. It's an uphill task for him as not just the team lack of teamwork but the players also has a low morale especially giving respect to others. They use a lot of obscene and crude words to others as well as being impolite to the elders. But that's about to change as coach Carter made them to sign a contract agreement before they can join the team, the contract imposes them to maintain a 2.3 CGPA,wear ties and a coat on game day, doing charity works, attend and sit in front row of the class, etc. etc....basically its about making them to behave like professionals.
His harsh treatment in training paid off as the team enjoy unprecedented winning streak as well as maintain undefeated for 16 games,until disaster struck. As the team got carried away with their winning ways, they become arrogant and lose their self-esteem. Their morale slumped and their grades are falling. Determine to make up the lose grounds, Coach Carter take a bold step..locking up the gym and send the boys straight to the library to lift up their grades before hitting the gym once more. This has cause outburst from the boy’s parents, fans and the teachers as well as creating media spotlight for the unusual steps taken. However, the gym-lockup has been lifted after a council agreed to let the kids play after a tense dispute. But that doesn’t let the team down as the boys ignored their fans as they obey Coach Carter’s principle.
They’ve made it to the playoffs only to be beaten by the no.1 in the state by a whisker. However, that doesn’t mean they lost. 6 of the team players got their scholarship and most importantly, abright future ahead of them.
In the movie, as I see it Ken Carter wants to open the kids eye and try to aware them the future they will be when the finish school. He wanted to bring them away from social activities such as teenage pregnancy, abortion, drug trafficking, street thugs and crime that happening in the streets f Richmond. But his call doesn’t seem to be accepted by the older generations who doesn’t really think about the future of the young ones.
To conclude my movie review,,,lets enjoy Timo Cruz’s answer for Carter’s “What is your deepest fear”

Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate.
Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure.
It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us.
We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous?
Actually, who are you not to be?
You are a child of God.

Your playing small does not serve the world.
There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won't feel insecure around you.
We are all meant to shine, as children do.
We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us.
It's not just in some of us; it's in everyone.
And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same.
As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.

fOotBaLl CraZeE..!!

ahh,,it's that time again.after a few months of fasting,now epl has started once more with loads of exciting things ahead.

me,of course as a die-hard fan man utd felt a big lost due to departure of CR and tevez,,n i wonder what fergie's new tricks that he can conjure this time around as the transfer season he only bought valencia n obertan...(as usual,small name..high prospect) n injury-prone OWEN(ex-rival player liverFOOLs)..hope they going to win the title again this year.

yet,this year comes with another bang as man city has brougt in star players (adebayor,tevez,barry,santa cruz etc. etc)..i'd think that this year the domination of big four will be tarnish,,hmm, so who's gonna end up below the delights of man city,spurs,villa n everton??(my guess,arsenal)

all in all...i hope it'll we be a wonderful season of total football.
