New Music for the Philippine Azkals?

One more day and the AFF Suzuki Cup 2012 is on. The first match is Philippines vs Thailand. I remember years ago when the Philippines was like a newbie to football. They were like new musicians playing their  gibson sg standard and suddenly surprised Vietnam a few years ago with an upset. But now, coming into this year’s tournament, the Azkals are now a team to reckon with and being the team with the busiest preparation, it can really work different ways for them – to be too tired or to be well prepared. But most likely it would be the latter and I hope the Philippine Azkals bags the championship this time.

Manila String Maching Plays for Wolfgang on the Eve of the AFF Suzuki Cup 2012

This Friday, the eve of the first match of the AFF Suzuki Cup 2012, my musician friend will be playing for Wolfgang. Their group, the Manila String Machine, a sting quartet, were invited to play with this band which became very popular in the 90s in the Philippines. I’m not sure how they will be preparing for it, whether they will be getting some branded instruments like Fulltone or will practice the pieces they need to play before the performance. But I am so proud that they made the cut to play for Wolfgang.

Semi-Pro Difficulty in FIFA 12

These last few days, I’ve been playing my FIFA 12 in my iPad2 on semi-pro level. I’ve tried playing a season on that level before but I reverted back to amateur because it was too difficult. But even though I’m still quite fumbling with the toggle pads I will continue playing in this level and hopefully finish the whole season and then move to another level of difficulty. The next step after that would be to get the FIFA 13.
