Choices shmoices..

When i woke up in the morning, i'm left with a simple choice. Do i drive or do i take the lrt? Would i go with the black shirt or the brown? Do i stop for breakfast or do i just hold on till lunch? Okay la the lunch bit tak apply la kan now being ramadhan and all. Putting things a bit seriously, u'd think about ur job. Do i submit the report today or wait till the last minute of the deadline. Do u do this do u do that. Well u go through these choices everyday. No problem kan?

Sometimes life throws u some choices that's a bit more difficult. When it comes to the choices that affect our own lives i guess we're pretty much in control. Well relatively la kan. But what happens when the choices we make will impact the live of others?

Do we go with our gut feel? Hehe sometimes very dangerous la this one. Kekadang tu tak bleh pakai punye gut feel. Hehe encourages u to make decisions emotionally and sometimes not rationally. The worse thing is when u follow ur instincts tu, u won't know ur wrong until u fall flat on ur face. Or until u walk out of that courtroom being part of that statistics. So lets take all this gut feel business as just indicators. U'd wanna make informed decisions. U'd wanna have all the available information before u decide. Well u got to do what u got to do la kot. Anything u can so that u won't regret the choices.

Well we can always resort to faith. Make ur choice and hope for the best. Some advocates turning to god. Pray that u'r doing the right thing. Pray for some guidance. When ur in doubt, maybe some light can be shed on the whole thing. Then again, even when ur so sure of urself pun its never a guarantee that u've made the right choice anyway.

So what now?

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…

What's in it for me.

Looking at how the campaign for the Sarawak state election is going you would think that is a matter of who can promise the most who would probably win it. Difference being one party boasts a track record and the other one, well depends on which other one that is doesn't. 
I especially love it how these promises are all presented as conditional upon winning the election. Doesn't reek of bribery at all eh? Not buying votes. Yeah right. 
You would think that given how Selangor and Penang are run, they would want to see it emulated in Sarawak? I guess loyalty goes a long way over there. 
As it is there are a couple of outstanding issues that Sarawak can use as a bargaining chip in trying to force the federal government to start giving them more.
Oil royalties, more federal projects etc. and what better way to do it than to vote for the opposition? 
If the opposition wins, then Sarawakians can send a message to the federal gov't that hey if you don't give us what we want than t…

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…
