Lewis Hamilton - The Tiger Woods of Formula 1


Everyone knows the story of Tiger Woods, the story of an African-American who can into a predominantly Caucasian majority sport and turn it around with his brilliance and consistency. Well, I think this story has arrived in the sport of Formula 1 as well. The buzz name, especially in Britain is Lewis Hamilton. So much so that 6 races, 3 months into the 2007 season, people has almost forgotten about the dominance of Michael Schumacher for the previous 13 years. Cause, Formula 1 has a new hero and refreshingly, he aint white:) With Kimi Raikkonen being so horrifically terrible at Ferrari, think I've found a new guy to support in Formula 1. Still adore Ferrari but I've finally jumped on to the Lewis bandwagon.

The fact that he made Fernando Alonso, his team-mate and another super young-talent ( youngest pole-sitter, youngest F1 race winner, youngest F1 world champion and (deep breath) youngest double world champion) so desperate in wanting to win the Canada GP that he hack-sawed his car into the grass at the first corner (apology for this extremely long sentence) and subsequently spoilt his race just shows how good Hamilton is. 6 races into his first season, 6 podiums (3-2-2-2-2-1). Dont think Schumacher was this good this young although it's all about timing as well in F1 with Hamilton joining Mclaren at a time when the car is just super good (who needs Adrian Newey after all:P). We'll see how the season goes but Lewis's the man of the moment for sure!

BMW Sauber's Robert Kubica's Horrific Crash


Scary crash but the amazing thing is Kubica escaped with nothing but an ankle sprain and concussion. Apparently the first question he asked after regaining conscious was "Can I race in Indiannapolis next week?" Crazy stuff!

Expressions of love

Attended Charlotte Chapel this weekend and sermon was on marriage relationships. One particular point caught my attention and it was on expressions of love. Think this applies not just to married couples but to friendships and relationships in general. There are five main areas in which love can be expressed and received:
  • Words spoken
  • Deeds done
  • Gifts given
  • Time spent
  • Affirming touch
The pastor also mentioned that for each individual, some of these five areas are stronger in terms of how love is expressed and received. In order to make a relationship work, there is a need to understand how each other expresses love comfortably so that the relationship may be fruitful and rewarding.
