UEFA 2009 Champions League Final

May 29th, 2009 No comments
Manchester United vs. Barcelona = Ronaldo Cristiano vs. Lionel Messi

That's what this year's UEFA Champions League Final basically came down to, the two best players in the world finally got to have a match up worth watching on such a big stage. I'm no Man U fan even in the slightest bit, so while i can admit that Ronaldo is "the man", i'm also gonna say that i've liked Messi for alot longer. The Argentinian is so deceptive on the field that its take a few seconds to digest what he just did.

Anyways, Barcelona prevailed 2-0 with Messi scoring a header late in the 2nd half. Had to watch this game at 4AM so after the first half, it looked like Man U just couldn't handle their normal confident selves. Or maybe it was because i was already inebriated. Who cares!? I was just satisfied that Man U lost after seriously dispensing Arsenal in the semi-final a few weeks before.

Wizard Woes Continue…

May 20th, 2009 No comments
For the umpteenth time in the last umpteenth years, the Washington Wizard's fans get screwed again. This past year they tied for the 2nd-worst record in the league and still managed to get the #5 pick in the NBA Draft Lottery which only solidifies the curse of changing their name from the very legit "Bullets" to the lowly and very odd "Wizards".

WTF? Without a doubt they would have drafted Blake Griffin out of Oklahoma University, the consensus #1 collegiate player who led the nation with 30 double-doubles (1 short of breaking David Robinson's NCAA record), 14.4 boards per game, and a Big 12 best 22.7 points per game as a SOPHOMORE. I'm not callin out Antawn Jamison, who is quite frankly the man and proves it every night, or Gilbert Arenas, who even though shuns the leadership spotlight is the main reason why the Wiz made the playoffs lately, but c'mon, can't we just get a little lucky? I guess we already had our luck handed to us when we traded Jerry Stackhouse and Christian Laettner for Antawn Jamison bout 6 years ago, i still think we are due for another one though...

Just think, the Wiz coulda had Blake Griffin givin facials like this every night...but no, it will be Brendan Haywood receiving them instead. Blake won the McDonalds High School All-American Slam Dunk Contest back in 2007, i guess he can showcase those talents with the Clippers next season. Will always give it up for a Sooner born and bred boy though, not to mention the Clippers' jerseys look WAY better than the Wizards, so good luck Blake!

Kanye West x Louis Vuitton

I'm sure you've heard by now but these kicks are fresh. Kanye and Louis Vuitton combine like Voltron for a June 2009 release date. Anyone got $1200 i can borrow?

Hate Kanye all you want, but sometimes when you're hating just to be hating, it "all falls down". Best diss i've read so far on these is the "Most Expensive Pro Keds Ever" label which admittedly, i can agree with. More at Hypebeast...

Ballin’ Review #18 – Nusa Dua Spa

May 9th, 2009 No comments
This month i visited Nusa Dua Spa, which is a part of Nusa Dua Beach Hotel & Spa. Already did a review on their accommodation back in 2008 you can find here but this time it was all about "da Spa". Their spa is extremely spacious with multiple rooms and honestly, not a whole lot of the "pizazz" flavor, but never judge a book by its cover. I had the BEST massage i've ever had here in Bali or outside of Bali so of course, you'll just have to check it yourself. Went with the 2-hour Royal Javanese Body Polish which was an hour of massage, then body scrub, then they smear you with yoghurt, then you chill in a warm bath and sip ginger tea. I was starving so the yoghurt wasn't helpin much but the massage was so rhythmic and perfect that i passed out, with the drool falling from my lips before i could wake up....

Word, go check it out, not bad for US$75, definitely in the realm of the mid-priced to high end treatments as you can find cheaper but its worth it. Their other packages were notable too, a lot of uniquely designed ones as well for jetlag and after sunburn care.

p.s. - girl sold separately...
