list of fives

sometimes last year my boss who is english gave me an everton jersey. i am not a fan of everton but he is. and a few weeks back in one of our routine long distance phone conf (he's based somewhere near london) he mentioned how excited he was now that everton finally started kicking ass. i mentioned to him that if everton ends up fifth or better in the league i'll treat him to a nice curry when he comes down here next time around. i did not realize at the time that everton was in sixth place. i thought that was quite amusing .i don't know what he made of it. i don't know where everton is at the moment as i've long stopped following british soccer. in fact i don't follow anything these days. and i don't know why i said fifth or better. number five doesn't signify anything for me. i don't believe in any special numbers though surprisingly for unknown reasons i hate number 13. i hate to admit it, but at the subconscious level i'm probably influenced by the westerners' superstition.

five sounds like a good well rounded number and so i thought i'd make a list of my five bests of five categories just for the hell of it.

here goes- in no particular order:-

2) Five best Rock albums

3) Five best movies

Once upon a time in America (Dir: Sergio Leone)
One flew over the cuckoo's nest (Dir: Milos Forman)

4) Five best novels

5) five most interesting malaysian politicians
