The fear of the relapse of the chronic backache that has been bothering me, which I thought it'll be good for me to be seated when taking the shots. Anyway, much to my surprise that I was able to shoot under the settings of ISO3200, 1/320-400 (pending where the action took place), f5.6 and that it seems the floodlights seems stronger. Kari's penalty was deemed enough for the Warriors to see them through to the Cup final for the first time since 2008.

End of An Era - Richard Bok bow out with a Cup Win

Richard Bok left a legacy behind So it was perfect farewell gift for departing SAFFC coach, Richard Bok, as the Warriors ended their trophy drought since 2009 with the clinching of the RHB Singapore Cup at the expenses of title challengers, Tampines Rovers at the Jalan Besar Stadium with a 2-1 scoreline. The winning of the Cup this evening could be seen by some as the most significant achievement in Bok's coaching career. For the fact that the squad that won tonight is a SAFFC team that is considered the squad Bok tried to build up as his own for bigger stages after the exodus of several stalwarts such as Thai legend Therdsak Chaiman, John Wilkinson, Aleksandar Duric, etc. following their last trophy won - the League title in 2009. SAFFC players tossed coach Bok in the air after the win The following years saw the Warriors gradually revamped the squad with several new signings in effort to beef up the challenge in its second Asian Champions League (ACL) appearance, wh

URGENT!!! Don't missed out anything on BoLASEPaKO's Facebook Page

NOTICE It came to my attention only after other Facebook Pages' (FB Page) owners made the similar notice on their page wall following some changes by Facebook that I thought it's necessary to follow suit as well. I was told that according to the new rulings or requirement to be precised, FB Page owners are obliged to promote their postings by paying a fee. Failure to do so will see subsequent postings by the FB Page owner (that's me in the case) reaching out to only 10% of those who “liked” this page (meaning to say that now there are more than 710 “likes” and only 71 people will get to see updates on their feeds!). But fear not, as I managed to print-screen a number of screen shots which I hope through this step-by-step guide will help you to “bookmark” the FB Page in order not to miss out any information that might deemed essential on Singapore football. Here it goes. I hope this step-by-step guide had clearly illustrated the steps corr

In the Stands of the Heartlands to see Lions triumphed 2-0...

Rather than to be on the sidelines with the photogs, I joined the crowds at the stands of the Choa Chu Kang Stadium to watch the match between Singapore and India. The Lions walked away with a 2-0 win with goals from Khairul Amri, who came on as a replacement for Shi Jiayi, in the closing stage of the first half (barely a few touches before he found the net!). SAFFC's Fazrul Nawaz doubled the score minutes after the restart with a close-range effort off a cross from evergreen Aleksandar Duric on the right. It was noted that the 42 year-old striker drifted himself sporadically into a deeper position as a makeshift defensive midfielder or a quarterback in the second half. Therefore, not surprise at all to see the man, whose international score-rate before than Lionel Messi , struggled to stamp his mark in an unfamiliar territory. Fazrul (no.10) scored the second of the night (credit: FAS) When asked if it was pleasing to see Amri and Fazrul scoring instead of relying
