PJ Hilton Reunion

I attended a reunion dinner of my UEL students at Paya Serai Coffeehouse, PJ Hilton this evening. Everyone was there, save for Edwin who was working. It was certainly nice to see all of them again. Two of them changed jobs and one is already pursuing her MBA. Other than the great company, I am compelled to add here that the food is mediocre and the service is wretched. And to think this is a Hilton hotel.

Bottom-of-the-table Falkirk was in great form to share six goals in a thrilling tussle with Scottish Premier League leaders Celtic, producing a thrilling 3-3 draw. Falkirk’s Robert Olejnik made a double-save to keep out Aiden McGeady's penalty before Gary Caldwell headed Celtic in front (55). Scott Arfield replied from the penalty spot (61) and Pedro Moutinho volleyed Falkirk into a surprise lead (64). Scott McDonald came off the bench to restore Celtic's lead with a brace (72, 79) but Mark Stewart hit the leveler (83).

In the EPL, Arsenal whipped Wolverhampton 4-1 with another fine attacking display. The Gunners were a touch fortunate with their opener as Ronald Zubar turned a Cesc Fabregas corner into his own goal (28). Again, Eduardo's chip went in off Jody Craddock's head to make it a second own goal (36) before Robin van Persie's exquisite touch set up Fabregas to score a classy third (45+1). Andrey Arshavin struck with a low shot from the edge of the area (66) before Craddock headed in a late consolation on behalf of Wolves (89). For Arsenal, this victory is another sign that they can mount a real challenge for the title this season.
