there's always a lesson to be learned..

the monkees attempted, and would have probably done much better than the 14th out of 54th if not for some careless mistakes and just takde luck. well not la takde luck sangat la kan. muz menang lucky draw kasut. hehe i got myself a micro hi-fi system. but we were still a bit sore la with losing not winning. but fun was a lot to be had. another sore point was a rival company won first place. hmm but then again they had 2 masters in that team. ah well. tak pe takpe. next year cuba lagi..

apart from that, we all had a very good weekend. some much better than others. came home on sunday and the family planned to have a bbq. sempena man utd vs liverpool kinda thing. been a while since we did a bbq. the senorita dropped by after we had lunch. hehe showed her some picture from the not so 'sehat' days. she must wonder where the guy in them pictures have gone. hehe gues she's stuck with this hombre aje laa.

the senorita couldn't stay for the bbq. nabil and aidil came soon after along with my sister and brother in law. had loadsa fun la with the two rugrats. macam-macam aksi diorang berdua tu. at one point my brother had to literally pry them apart coz nabil didn't want to give his brother aidil this toy. aidil, more and more the biter that he is, almost got a bit of nabil. nasib baik tak kena.

with the bbq well on its way, we entertained my sister ana's friend. and later that night ahmad came after a full day of work. caught up with his recent developments. hehe i realized that my sister and my mom knew more recent stories about him than i did. hehe ah well kira dah part of the family la kata kan.

overall it was a very full weekend.

p/s man u 1 liverpool 0 if anyone's interested.

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…
