World Cup fever and more selfie...

The World Cup tournament has gone mid-way and it's been a great tournament so far. There were some surprises as defending champions Spain was kicked out of the tournament after two matches while home favourites like England also went out. Some other heavyweights like Brazil, Germany and Italy  have to wait for their last match to confirm qualifying for the next round.

Although the time difference is almost 12 hours here, there's no stopping me as well as my friends from watching. Usually, I will catched the first match at 12am or the last match at 6am. That means I needed to sleep late or wake up early. Sometimes, I only watched the first half of the first match and the second half of the last match. There are no problems on weekends as I can stayed up to watch the matches.  However, with the second round beginning soon, it will be harder to watch as the matches will starts in the wee hours of the morning.

World Cup fever ... yours truly again selfie with my little princess... lol

Anyway, all the 'sacrifices' are worth it as this is a once in a 4 years event but I needed to take care of my health too. It will be easier to watch in the next edition as it will be Russia where the time difference is not that great. For now, let's enjoy the current one! :)
