Merry Christmas 2009

Merry Christmas
No matter where I was, I had to rush back to turn up for school staff meeting around this festive season before my retirement. As usual, after the staff meeting, I would busy preparing teaching material for next year school term.
Now, I am retired, I don't have to worry about my school duty. I am free to go anywhere at any time.

After grumbling, I am really in good mood. I would like to wish all my visitors and friends a Merry Christmas.

2010 FIFA World Cup South Africa

2010 FIFA World Cup South Africa
As the draw ceremony had been held in Cape Town of South Africa, the grouping of the 32 finalists of 2010 FIFA World Cup was completed.
2010 FIFA World Cup will begin on 11 June next year in South Africa. Mexico from Central America will challenge the host of the tournament that is South Africa in the opening match at Johannesburg's Soccer City.

France was so lucky to have a fabulous draw. It's in Group A with South Africa which is the lowest seeded team. Argentina, England and Germany are among the lucky teams which were drawn in Group B, Group C and Group D respectively. They clear their path to semi-final because they avoid meeting strong opponents such as Brazil, Portugal, Spain, Italy and Netherlands.

Since I had retired, I can enjoy watching live broadcasting of the 2010 FIFA World Cup until the next morning. My favorite teams are Spain, England, Brazil, Italy and Argentina. Hopefully one of these teams will be the Champion of this tournament.

South Korea Envelope Opener

Korean Envelope Opener
Time really fly, Christmas is just around the corner. Last year December, my son returned from South Korea. He brought back a full luggage of snacks and souvenirs. This envelope opener is one of the souvenirs that my son bought for me.

Korean Envelope Opener
The knife-shaped envelope opener was made of bronze and carved with Korean words on its surface. It was adorned with a small bell and a pair of affectionate mandarin ducks at its shank. Besides using it as an envelope opener, it can be used as a bookmark and a knife for cutting papers.

I greatly treasure this multifunction lovely and beautiful small bronze knife which was made in South Korea.
