Holland's (and my) road to the FIFA 2010 Final

Ive watched every of the Holland game, some in the warmth and comfort of my bed (the 4.30am games), some in the midst of other Dutch fans (the first game against Denmark), and one even in the outdoor FIFA Fan Fest in the cold rainy Sydney night! While they have won every game, I have to admit that Ive always worried how they will do, particularly in the Semi Final against Brazil!

Somehow the Oranje made it through......and now comes the big night. The Final against Spain, who beat Germany in the Semi final. And what a game that was, the Spaniards look really strong. All I can do now is keep my fingers crossed, put on my Oranje shirt, even put the other Oranje shirt on the panda bear sitting in my room (pics to follow!)

There is all this talk about Paul the octopus and his prediction. I thought I was the only one who needed to resort to voodoo...but seems the whole world has gone mad over this octopus. Some are ofcourse adding a lot of octopus dishes to their meal :)

Anyhow, Hup Holland Hup!!

a birthday gift from the Dutch boys!

Danes no match for the Dutch, according to report on the FIFA website :p (as per link above)

I went out to join hundreds of Dutch fans, and the Oranje did not disappoint, giving me an early birthday gift just on the verge of midnight.

See pics:

Also, a big thank you to all my friends for the lovely messages sent via facebook, sms. Only complaint is: no emails? no postcards? no phonecalls either? awwwww

Hey, what can I say......Im am old woman (getting older by the day!) and I like my old-fashioned, traditional, conventional ways :p
