My Spring-Break plan

I am a junior in college now. Honestly, I have not done anything that interesting or crazy so far. So I am thinking that by the time I graduate from college, I have to do something that I can brag about haha. I am not an alcoholic so there is impossible to brag how many shots I can take.

But I love football, and I love Barcelona. Therefore, I am planing to go to the Real Madrid VS Barcelona game on the 22nd of March. It happened to be the last day of the spring break. When I knew this, I was like OMG I AM DOWN!!!

After this winter break, I will go and get my Visa ready. I have been looking at the ticket. It is expensive but it is ok haha. It is my dream to watch an  El Clásico.

So far, I have found 4 friends coming with me. We are planing to fly to Paris to do some shopping at Galeries Lafayette, one of the best department store in the world. Then, we will fly to Barcelona to watch the game and come back.

I am sure it will be a amazing experience. I will post pictures and details after the winter break.

Meeting with Bayern

I do believe that I have a boring life so far, because I am not a very emotional person. Alcohol or parties cannot excite me. However, there is a one thing that can actually enlivens me is football. The past summer was the best summer in my life. It was not because I had my first internship but I had chance to meet with the second best team in the world Bayern Munich. The following pictures were taken with all the players.

His name is Franck Ribéry, a french footballer who was nominated by FIFA alongside with Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ro

naldo on the three final shortlist for the 2013 FIFA Ballon d’Or.  Ballon d’Or is the most prestigious personal award for football player across the world.  The winer of this award will be regard as the best footballer in the world.

I may look funny in this picture because I was in the picture with a back of a person. However, this person is my God for the past a couple of years. His name is Pep Guardiola. Before he came to the German giant, he was the coach for the best team in the world–Barcelona. He coached Barca from 2008 to 2012. Under his leadership, Barca won 14 trophies and an over 70% winning percentage.  He introduced a revolutionary style of playing, which changed the football world. He foreseen the talent of Messi, and moved Messi from an attacking winger to the “false 9”, which make Messi becomes the best player in the world. I wish I could take a “standard” picture with him but refused and told me that “No picture today, I am too ugly”.  I was a little bit disappointed but I am satisfied to have this picture.
