Merry Christmas

I’m going to be away for around 2-3 weeks. No, I’m not going anywhere special, it’s just that my internet is running low and it won’t renew itself until the 9th January 2009. The blog will be dead for a while.

So yeah, have a Merry Christmas and a happy New Year. =]

Emotional, exciting, sad, happy...

Pretty much mixed feelings today.

Screaming kids, celebrating, hugging, crying.

OMG, I can't believe I'm actually leaving my school! :'(

Thank God I didn't cry though. I was about to but being infront of the entire school and parents stopped me from doing it.

Embarrassed ourselves when we sung and dance...

'Moving on, reaching out. We're gonna fly up to the stars. The time has come to make a bold new start...'

Argghhh, the song's still stuck in my head.

Anyway, I'm happy with my report =]

I actually improved in maths! I got a B not a C, yayy.

I got an award for english and an A on my report for it.

It really is my best subject, I suppose.

One more week to go...

But on the plus side -


Yessss. Haven't been there since I was 6!

Well, I should go and pack then.

2nd Test, 4th day at Adelaide - Aus win

Australia has won against New Zealand in the 2nd test and has claimed the series.


You know, at one point I was saying to my friend that NZ player O'Brien was going to get out by Brett Lee soon.

And guess what?

A few balls later he was goneskiezz!

Bwahahaha, I'm so skilful.

Brett Lee was on fire...all those bouncers...

I think I even heard Brendon McCullum say "Oh S**t!" while Brett bowled another bouncer at him.

Hilarious. He swore on national television which kids like myself are watching.

Loved the commentators reaction, "Oop, I think I just heard an expletive there." One of them said something like that. I can't recall the exact words as I was laughing my head off.

Immature I know but I just find it really funny. I'm 12, get off my back =]

I absolutely love those stump microphones.

Good job Australia.

2nd Test, 3rd day at Adelaide - Go Hadds!

Brad Haddin got his first Test century today against NZ. Congrats.

He got out on 169. It was a brilliant innings.

Michael Clarke did great as well with his 110.

But going back to Hadds; he's definitely the right man to have replaced Adam Gilchrist.

There are a lot of wicketkeeper-batsmen nowadays.

They are a great advantage to their team.

Taking catches and making runs too! Doesn't get any better than that.

Go Hadds.

Go Australia.

2nd Test, 2nd Day at Adelaide

The last time I saw the cricket on Channel 9, Brad Haddin and Michael Clarke were at the crease.

They were going very good.

I don't know about now; my dad changed the channel.

Here's the bulletin.

Boredom has taken over



My day's boring.

I want to watch the cricket but I can't because my mum's watching something else so...

I'm bored.

Well, at least Ricky Ponting is steering Australia well. That's very good; happy to know that Australia are right on top.

Too bad Matthew Hayden got run-out on his 100th test match. It would've been great if he made a century but eh, what can you do?

I'm bored. I should just play with my dog then.

Bridget out.

Thanks SFA


The people that go there are awesome.

The teachers are awesome (some of them *cough*).

That's why I'm going to miss everything and everybody.



7 years of building relationships with other people; aka 'friends.'

7 years of getting to know the teachers. (more like 7 years of homework torture).

7 years of going to assembly, having library, doing homework, playing on the playground, singing our national anthem, sitting on the ground, being bossed by teachers, having fun, falling over, crying, being happy, work, doing assessments, having spelling words, smiling, laughing, enjoying, excursions, talent quest, hats, school uniform and other random stuff that I cannot think of at the moment.

Next year is going to be different. 2009 is coming.

And since this blog is something that can be viewed all across Australia and the world, I'd like to take this time to thank some certain special people.

Let's start from the beginning.

Mum and dad - for letting me be the best I can be. Both of you have been an inspiration to me and have taught me to respect, love, and honour the people that are important and special in my life. Thank you.

Kindergarden teacher: Miss Murphy
Class: Kindy Blue
- Helping me on my first day and telling me where to put my bag and teaching me my ABC's and 123's. Thank you.

Year 1 teacher: Miss Cox
Class: 1 Red
- Being cool and accepting my present of a giant chocolate block of Toblerone (if that's how you spell it). Thank you.

Year 2 teacher: Mrs Doulub
Class: 2 Blue
- Letting me reach my potential and helping me realise that I could achieve more. Thank you.

Year 3 teacher: Mrs Sultana
Class: 3S
- Building my knowledge and help me improve my reading. Thank you.

Year 4 teacher: Mrs Strong
Class: 4S
- Making me a sportier person and letting me know that I had neat hand writing. Thank you.

Year 5 teacher: Mrs Bracken
Class: 5B
- Helping me improve on my public speaking and speech writing. Making me think more positive, read more and for inspiring me to become school captain for 2008. I thank her a lot for my success. Thank you.

Year 6 teacher: Miss Byrne
Class: 6F
- My current teacher.
For being a humorous teacher and letting us have fun once in a while. Making school work easier and letting us see the good side of things by making us laugh. Thank you.

Principal: Mr Mahony
- Being a great principal and leading assemblies good, lol. Thank you.

Tanvi, Erica, Dana, Jasraj, Nicole, Adriana, Laiza, Japneet, Jenica, Jherrico, Luke, Lysander, Jayce, Brayden, Aurelyn, Natalie, Adem, Callum, Kayetana, Elvin, Courtney, Danielle, Glenn, Ian, Mitchell, Mathew, Liam, Eric, Damien, Sam, Christian, Zac, Alisha, Dale, Alex, Rex, Emilio, Ravjyot, Damon, Terrence, Jordyn, Ivan, BLAH BLAH BLAH; you people know who you are, (sorry I'm just lazy to type all your names up) THANK YOU FOR BEING SUCH GREAT CLASSMATES. I LOVE YOU ALL.

Finally, thank you ST FRANCIS OF ASSISI for being a great school.

It was great to go to you. Hm, yes if that makes sense.

Ok, well, since the Year 6 graduation is coming up, I'd just like to share my School Captain graduation speech. Here goes...

Six years ago, I was still in kindergarden learning how to write my name. That was in 2002. But now in 2008, I'm standing right infront of you here today giving a graduation speech. How fast does time go? In my opinion, I reckon it goes too fast. Time is gold, that's what my mum says. And yes, I agree with that. My time with my friends and teachers are pure gold. I will never forget about them. Ten years from now, I'm sure that I'll look back at the past and remember all those who were important to me back in primary school. These sort of memories stick with you forever, no matter what happens. But now I have to move forward, look to the future. High school is going to be different. New friends, new teachers, new environment. No more waking up late, no more playing handball or tennis in the playground. It's sad. I honestly wish that I could stay at St Francis School forever but yeah, that's impossible. I really thank my parents for sending me to such a great school, with such great people. The education was the absolute best, the excursions were fun and the teachers were funny...sometimes. There never was a day that did not consist of laughter and humour. In every single room I went into, there was happiness. The air always gave me a good feeling. Seeing all of those smiling faces; learning and talking to their friends. To me, that is what life is about; being happy. It doesn't matter if you don't have much money, the things that matter are the simple things: learning, friends and most importantly family. Yes, at times your family are a pain in the back, but you have to appreciate and thank God for them as they will always be there for you through the good times and the bad. They will always be by your side. They will also push you and push you, just to make you achieve great things and I cherish that a lot because that is how I got here today. And finally, now that the year is coming to an end, I'd like to thank all my friends, classmates, teachers and just everybody for helping me through seven years of my life at St Francis of Assisi. Thanks for the memories.

Finito. Thanks for reading, thanks for being my friend, thanks for helping me, thanks for teaching me, thanks for inspiring me, thanks for making me laugh...


What's happening Roy?

Was Andrew Symonds involved in a pub fight or not?

The cricket sites are confusing me.

Cricinfo is saying that he was involved in an incident while is saying that he did nothing wrong.


Make up your minds.

Gosh, change the title of your articles; freaking confusing people.

Anyway, Symo's ok.

I don't think he did anything.

Hopefully not.

I don't want him to be dropped again.

The Australian team don't need that right now.

Cricket Australia are just plain stupid if they drop him again.

Australia win first test

Australia won against New Zealand at the 'Gabba.

Very good.

I didn't have any time to watch this test so...

No comments from me.

Here's the bulletin.

Happy birthday Gilly

Adam Gilchrist got a very good present last night.

His team, the All*Stars beat the number 1 side in the world:


Ahahahaha, Gilly's team won by 64 runs. This has made me very happy.

This exhibition match was for me, a great start to the season.

Michael Dighton and Adam Gilchrist got off to a great start, as they shared an opening partnership of 67.

But it was the great Justin Langer (52*) and the big-hitting Brad Hodge (65*) who gave the All*Stars the score of 203.

Australia got to a very slow start but then the return of Andrew Symonds who made 45, was definately the best run-scorer for the Australians.

But the All*Stars' bowlers just proved to be too much for them and were all out for 139.

India win series

India deserved it, I suppose.

Australia sucked and they were getting suckier by the minute. They got owned/thrashed/pwned/killed/murdered/slaughtered... you can call it whatever you want; they still lost.

India did it.

They beat number 1 and they are now number 2. Good job.

For the Australians...

Please lift your game up.

I'm getting bored with your performances. At one stage it was extraordinary and then BANG! two minutes later it went to shocking.




And I dare say...



And it takes a lot of bad playing for me to say that.

What happened to that arrogant Aussie spirit??

That's what I want. That's what Australians want.

We want to see aggression. We want to see that attacking performance.

We don't want to see slow over-rates. We don't want to see crap. We want to see what Australia does best when focused: Winning.


Friday, November 7, 2008

Are Australia finally losing it?

Um, no they're not?

...Or maybe they are?

I don't know.

All I know is that Australia are not the team they used to be. It's either that or India is one hell of a good team and finally getting it up there with the Australians.

Yes, I thank Jason Krejza and Simon Katich for keeping us in the game while the others struggled. But maybe that was just another day. You have bad days and good days. You can't predict what's going to happen.

Gilchrist, Warne, McGrath, Martyn, Langer have all retired recently and it has seriously affected Australia. It's hit them right in the gut.

But I reckon Australia can still cope.


They can still remain Number 1 if they put their minds to it.

Go Australia.

I tried out for the MILO in2CRICKET team at school last Thursday.

I did great.

My batting was controlled and I did pull the occasional slog.

My fast bowling was at its absolute best. I got 2 wickets.

Friday was when the team was announced. I hurried over to the sheet of paper. I searched for my name and there it was; the second on the list. I was freaking going crazy. Well ok, not really. I was over-powered by a state of happiness that I just stood there staring at the piece of paper. I clenched my fist and whispered "Yes" to myself. Relief went through me. I had FINALLY made it into a cricket team. I now classify myself as an official cricket player which sounds so cool.

I assume that the sheet was the batting order. I'm an opener. Sweet. I always wanted to open an innings.

Also, during the try outs the teacher-coach pulled me and one of my fellow players aside and said that we could be wicketkeepers and take turns keeping during the matches...that is if we made it in...and we did. So yeah.

I'm a wicketkeeper. How awesome is that?

Pretty awesome. I love keeping.

The matches are 16 overs. So it's kinda like Twenty20. You gotta hit a lot of 6's and 4's...

and I love doing that ;)

A new book

I bought Adam Gilchrist's autobiography today.

So far, so good.

He has, apparently, a very interesting life especially when he was in the Australian cricket team :)

I loved the intro. He explained why he titled the book 'True Colours.'

Really great stuff.

Got the book as a bargain too - $34.95 use to be $50.00 (bought at Angus and Robertson bookstore)

I'm so glad.

Well, it's back to reading for me. I just typed this post randomly because I was bored, lol.

Sunday, October 26, 2008

Lol, Gilly

Adam Gilchrist has slammed Sachin Tendulkar in his autobiography that will be going on sale next week. It is called 'True Colours: My Life.'

I so want that book.

Anyway, Adam has questioned Sachin's evidence in the Harbhajan-Symonds racism clash which happened earlier this year.

And of course, Harbhajan Singh got ticked off.

What a noob.

Singh even said that they didn't respect Gilly.

What kind of NOOB doesn't respect Gilly?!

He's like the most honest guy to have ever played cricket.

During his career, he walked every time he thought he was out.

And that's really hard to do.

Harbhajan should've just kept his mouth shut because we didn't respect him either.

*cough* he slapped his own team mate *cough*

Besides, Gilly could smash him for six any day.

It was his own point of view. Stand up for what you believe in, is what they always say.

Adam defended himself and said that he did not accuse Sachin of lying.


A lot of stuff going on just because of a book.

I can't wait to get my hands on it.

Saturday, October 18, 2008


I haven't written anything for a while.

It's been a pretty hectic week soo...yeah.

I've got this swimming programme thingo for school.

...which kinda sucks.

I mean, I like swimming but not swimming up and down non-stop.

I'm not an olympian.

Neither are my classmates.

It's just too much.

But I suppose I can cope.



It so happens that Australia are struggling against India.


Matty Hayden went cheaply again. Maybe his age is starting to catch up with him.

Hope he finds his form soon.

Some dude with the name Amit Mishra took five wickets.

So uhh, well done whoever you are.

You're going good India.

Come on Australia, do something.

Wednesday, October 8, 2008

As if!

Virender Sehwag made a shocker of a comment.

He said that the Aussies cheated in the Sydney test last season.


That is totally untrue.

Australia won fair and square.

He's just upset because his team didn't win.

Bad sportsmanship.

So sad.

Now, he just made the Aussies angry.

Boy, he's gonna get it.

The tension between these two sides are shockingly scary.

The ICC banned sledging, which I didn't like at first but now with Australia and India having a go at each other, it has kind of changed my mind. Not completely but almost.

Probably if that law hadn't been passed, players will be getting heaps of fines.

Sehwag should just stop whinging.

According to
Cricinfo, Ricky Ponting is insulted with what he said. (You can read about it here)

The catches were fine.

Anyway, the umpires or the third man have the last say so don't argue with their decisions.

They'll fine you for it if you don't be careful.


Shane Warne is gone.

He's not playing international cricket anymore.

How hard is it to understand that?

For the people who have a brain, yes it's quite easy to understand.

But certain others lack the brain knowledge and reckon he can make a come-back.


Just because Australia is finding it hard without star spinners, doesn't mean a retired player can come back.

Our current spin bowlers are fine thank you.

I'm sure Australia can cope without Warnie.

Yes, everybody knows he's an absolute legend at the art of spinning but enough is enough.

Forget the past and move on.

You can't rely on him every time the Aussies need help because he's not there anymore.

Let the other guys work it out.

They've got talent; they've got skills so they can do it themselves.

Just let them learn and leave Shane in peace.

A great rivalry

Oh snap!

The test series between Australia and India are definitely striking up some tension.

Well, at least it's not as bad as before.

But it's still nerve racking.

India's got guts to stand up and look at the Aussies straight in the eye without being scared.

They've been fighting like savage dogs.

Nobody's won yet though.

The fight's still going and India's looking strong but Australia are making a come-back.

These two cricket teams are tough. As in REALLY tough. They will never back down from a challenge.

Over the years, no other teams could step up and make an impact but India have finally done that. They're making the Australians struggle which makes the game even more interesting.

Yes, Australia have lost its big superstars like McGrath, Warne, Gilchrist etc, and they have a new look side now. A more younger one. Unexperienced but still has a lot of talent. The older guys will have to guide them.

On the other side, India's got some old players. This may be holding them down a bit. Sourav Ganguly's retiring after the test series so maybe some of the senior players might follow letting the younger ones show the world what they've got.

Matches between these two great nations are never boring. Every second of every minute and every minute of every hour, there's always something happening to make the day even more entertaining.

I believe that this rivalry is good for the game of cricket.

Gilchrist in All-stars

Adam Gilchrist has been confirmed to play for the All-stars against Australia in a one-off Twenty20 match on November 14.


You can read about it, here, here, not here, but here

Anyways, there's nothing like an exciting T20 match.

...Boundaries, wickets, commentary from the players


Cricket Australia also said that the All-stars might have other 'returning icon players.'

The Aussie Cricinfo mentioned Glenn McGrath and Darren Lehmann.

Great stuff.

This will definitely be interesting.

Oh and wait...isn't November 14 Adam Gilchrist's birthday as well?

Yes it is.


The match couldn't be held on a better day.

Advance happy b'day Gilly.

White to replace McGain

Cameron White is going to travel to India on October 6 to replace injured spin bowler Bryce McGain.

Well, ok.

Cricket Australia can get anybody they want but the main thing is, that person has to help their team win.

We need all the help we can get.

India are a tough competitor.

The Aussies are finding it hard dealing with them but Michael Hussey and Stuart Clark did a brilliant effort making a 96-run stand for the last wicket.

We'll get through this in victory, no worries.

...I think.

Thursday, October 2, 2008

McGain's out due to injury

Bryce McGain has been ruled out of his first test due to shoulder problems.

Now, I don't know much about this Bryce guy but according to other cricket sites, he's pretty good.

Well, ok then.

I'll see once he's on TV.

He's 36 and a spin bowler.

A spinner is what Australia need at the moment.

You know, to level out the bowling.

If that makes sense.

Hopefully, he gets better soon.

Trust the fielder's word

Ricky Ponting says that we should trust the fielder's word.


Trust, is something hard to get from your opposition when you're on the field.

Unless you're already friends with them.

There's a saying 'Trust no-one.'

I don't believe it but there's sometimes liars in the game of cricket.

Who lie just because they want to win.

People who have no respect.


I think this is a good thing.

If people start to believe in each other, it would bring out the good in everyone and bring peace to the game.

But the ICC might just stuff this up.

Well, whatever.

It'll be good if we stopped using technology just to prove if the person who took the catch was fibbing or not.

But just in case, make sure the catcher is a good person before trusting them.

Gilly to lead DC

Mr Adam Gilchrist is going to lead the Deccan Chargers next season of the IPL.

Do you know how happy that makes me feel?



I should calm down.

Gilly's certainly doing a lot of things after his retirement.

*Cough* like saying cricket should be in the Olympics.

Not a bad idea actually.

I can picture Ricky Ponting and the Aussies standing tall, with gold medals around their necks, singing their National Anthem.


Gilchrist could be commentator.

Awesome again.

Anyways, back to the IPL.

I go for the Deccan Chargers...

Even though they came last this year.

That's sad.

Maybe Gilly can change that.

YAY, if he does.

Let's just see next year, shall we?


He's almost back.

Andrew Symonds has been named Queensland captain for a Twenty20 match against the Kolkata Knight Riders.

The match will be happening on Tuesday.

Roy also returned to his state cricket team on the weekend.

...And hopefully he'll be returning to International cricket soon as well.

If, in my wildest dreams, he ever reads this;

You have my entire support, mate.

God save Roy

It's Sunday today.

Yes, people like to call it 'rest day.'

Hmm, yes it is.

Well, it's not a rest day for Andrew Symonds.

After shoulder-barging a streaker, you'd think that he'd stay as one of the most popular cricketers in the world.

But nooo, Cricket Australia had to axe him just for missing ONE team meeting. Honestly, they're becoming softies.

The man went fishing, for Pete's sake.

He didn't kill anyone. He didn't commit a crime.

What's wrong with fishing??

Absolutely nothing.

I like fishing...even though I never tried it before.

Vice-captain Michael Clarke made a statement:

"When I was given the vice-captaincy, I knew part of that role was making sure you put the team first. The one thing that has probably been misinterpreted is that I didn't make the decision to send Andrew Symonds home on my own, it was the leadership group."

Stuff the leadership group, Pup. Defend your best mate. Geez.

Sorry if I sound like a whinger but I strongly believe that Symmo should not have been axed just for missing a meeting. It doesn't matter just as long as the man performs at his best to make his country win, win, win.

Enough said.

My friend Jherrico MADE me write a post about Runescape (RS).

He came out of retirement...apparently. He stopped playing RS 5 months ago and only started playing it again yesterday, Sunday.

Shocking, I know.

His addiction is getting serious.

No, not really.

But he should be careful.

I had to start wearing reading glasses because of that game.

Ruined my eyesight.

But it's a good game. Sometimes.

Let me explain -

Runescape is like a cricket innings on a very slow day; it gets boring at times but you still want to play/watch it.

Weird comparison but bear with me.

Runescape is a Massively Multiplayer Online Role-Playing Game. MMORPG for short.

There are over 150 worlds and Jerri thinks he pwns the entire game and everyone who plays it.

You can become a member and get more benefits. The bad thing is that you have to pay which really sucks.

But being non-member is still ok, I suppose.

You make your own character. Name it. Level up your skills. Train on monsters. Do quests. Play minigames. Chat to friends. Make new ones. Try to get in the high scores and be happy when you do because it's hard.

Here, let me get the expert...

Jherrico explains: "There are many skills. But let's take woodcutting for example. You have to chop trees for logs and once you get 99 skill level you can get a skill cape but it's only for members."

Sounds great?


And just to add, make sure you got virus protection.

Better safe than sorry.

You can go and play it now if you want.


Jherrico - what do you reckon?

Jherrico's his name.

A good friend/classmate of mine.

He tried out for the cricket team as well but unfortunately, didn't make it.

So here's the question: Do you think he should have?

He's a pretty nifty batter, his bowling is good too.

Likes to bowl 'em straight and fast. Obviously, he's a fast bowler.

His batting is controlled but sometimes he gets carried away and likes to slog it once in a while which is how he gets out.

Not really a HUGE cricket fan but still likes to play.

Well, he's Jherrico and what do you reckon?

Can he play cricket?

Or did the teachers make the right decision?

You decide.

Just a little info

This is my first blog.

Well, technically, my first blog that can be searched on the net.


I have another blog but it's dead now. I hardly use it. It's about cricket as well you know.

Here -
(You gotta gave a msn account to view it)

Anyways, let me introduce myself. I know you can just read the 'about me' thingo on the right but yeah whatever.

I'll add more info.

My name is Bridget Anne Garcia. I am 12-years-old and I go to primary school. I am school captain which is a pretty hard job but you get use to it...eventually.

I got into cricket 2 years ago (when I was 10). One day, I just randomly turned on the TV and there it was, the Ashes series. I thought: "Meh, boring," and switched the channel. Apparently, nothing else good was on so I went back to the cricket. Suddenly, I was hooked. I became addicted and continued to watch the rest of the series during the summer. I started to understand what you had to do.

Batsman: Hit the ball, score as many runs as you can without getting out.
Bowler: Get the bastman out.

Simple. It so happened that the Aussies won against England 5 nil and regained the Ashes. Outstanding.

I watched the one-day series and loved that as well.

And that's the reason why I made this blog today.

Amazing how TV can change your life, isn't it?

In a good way, of course.

Also, this was the first year that I tried out for my school cricket team. didn't go so well.

My bowling was too wide. (It's not my fault I can't bowl as far as the length of a basketball court! I'm a girl, for goodness sake.)

My batting was not so good either. I got out like 3 times. I kept trying to slog it.

Most of the people that got in already played cricket outside of school which is unfair.

Oh well, in year 7, I'm signing up to play cricket. Hopefully, I become successful.

But I still blame the teachers in charge for this.

They just didn't see my good shots.

Stuff them.

But whatever. Past is past, that's what my mum always says.
