points to ponder..

i need some help getting to grips with the logic of this review of the waja campro which i read on the sun today. as u may know the waja will be fitted with proton's own campro engine. "Having developed its own Campro engine, it makes sense for Proton to make this move as it means the end of royalty payments to Mitsubishi Motors for the use of their 4G18 engine". having said that, the retail price for a 1.6 manual remains at around 59K as it would be with the old engine. hmm.. no royalties shud equate to lower price right? maybe its because its a new engine and by right the improvements alone shud merit the price? been reading complaints about how the campro engine is not all that anyways. so why ah? it seems as if somebody is getting screwed and most probably its going to be u the consumer.

why ban firecrackers? because its dangerous? because many a criminal cases have been reported such as assault with a deadly thunder clap and using mercun padi to blow up bank vaults? why the sudden rigorous enforcement come chinese new year when u know that fire crackers is like part of a long tradition? why ah?

stick mawi on anything and it would probably sell like hotcakes. many are cashing in on his popularity. to come up with a compilation of songs which have been around before he came along and package it as songs that inspire him to win is kinda ridiculous la. and people who complains that they are cheated also shud realise that blind fanatism is not that good la. mee mawi, beli. camera mawi, beli. buku mawi, beli. mawi ni mawi tu. that old surfer range maui and sons pun shud ride on it oso aa. mawi and sons. hehe..

chris penn died. a decent enough actor. but for the life of me i can't remember any of his films off the top of me head. and i'm supposed to be good with that kinda thing. ah well..

donald trumps sues author who questioned him being a billionaire. the author of TrumpNation: The Art of Being the Donald claimed that the Donald is only worth no more than $ 250 million. he's suing the author and publisher for $ 5 billion. hehe, if he wins it than no doubt la of his billionaire status eh.

the makers of malaysia's most beautiful have achieved their goal. to show that beauty is much more than skin deep. i mean looking at the two finalists, personally those two won't do it for me. hence the whole 'eye of the beholder' thingy. but dang the prizes. winning a condo, jewelery and cash just for sitting pretty doing pretty much nothing? dang! that shows what gets rewarded in life eh. if u look at the winners of ibu mithali awards, or keluarga bahagia awards and stuff like that. compare that to the stuff being given out to people in entertainment. hmm. makes u wonder a bit la.

anyways, i'm stumped. have a nice day ya'll.

3-3 Arsenal vs Bournemouth

That was a brilliant game if you're a neutral. Not so much if you're a Bournemouth fan or an Arsenal fan.
Giroud completed the comeback but it was a game that we should have played better. Still no Özil in the side. Bournemouth looked the better team from the start. Ref was pretty much spot on with some of his calls. The red card kinda swung the game to our favour but we never really capitalised as we still allowed Bournemouth time on the ball even with 10 men.
But I guess it was 1 points gained instead of 2 points loss.
Here's hoping for a draw tomorrow for the spuds and Chelsea game.

Brand new year, same old shit?

2017 is here. After that very eventful 2016 one can't help but hope that the new year brings about more positive things. It doesn't look all that good though.
Will we get an election this year? I'd seriously consider it if I was the pm. I mean yes he has go a lot going for him but what he doesn't have at the moment is a credible United opposition to give him a run for his money. So yeah. Calling for an early election may be something that can be to his favour.
Will stupid acts by stupid people stop making then famous? Nope. Early on we saw a bunch of kids scaling the IPOH sign for shits and giggles. Posted everything on social media. Last I heard they've already come in to give statements to the fuzz. So the moral of the story is if you wanna do stupid things don't blab on social media with your smiling mug there for everyone to see.
Pump prices are up. No point complaining anymore since the price mechanism is partially public so we can pretty much guess th…

Of drivers and motivation.

You often wonder why folks behave the way they do. What drives them and why they behave inexplicably different from what you expect it them. You like to think that there is an element of commonality in human behaviour when it comes to certain things. Things like common sense and decency. Things involving ethics and moral behaviour. 
You would like to think that there is a baseline that people thread on and you can count on them to toe the line. 
You would like that very much. 
But the reality of it all is much different. We are all driven by different things. There's that element of unpredictability in each one of us that allows us to surprise people every now and then. The more we expect people to behave a certain way, the more likely it is for us to be surprised when they actually do the opposite. 
Maybe we shouldn't even bother. Let's just factor in all the uncertainties in life and just focus on what we can control. Yep. Let's just concentrate on our own action and beh…
