the virus and the cure..

 we watched snakes on a plane last saturday. it was a toss between watching superman returns or the samuel l. jackson movie. muz and eju had no preference. the gorjes senorita waived her movie veto rights as well. so we decided on snakes on a plane. this was to cap a day of food, food and more food. but more on that later. so the movie wasn't la oscar material ke ape. the snakes oso look cgi'ed. the plot of the movie was simple enuff. a mob boss wants to neutralize the threat of a witness testifying against him by rigging an airplane with like crates and crates of deadly venomous snakes. so it was up to mr lele jackson to rally the other passengers to safety by all means necessary. there were some 'terkezut' scenes in there la kan but i think that's mostly down to the extra sound effects provided by eju. there's a scene in the movie that somewhat answers the question of what would happen when a deadly snake meets a one-eyed snake. hehe in the end we all had a good laugh je la.

anyways, that saturday was pretty much filled with invitations here and there. earlier in the morning, the kids at that school i volunteered in had their prize giving ceremony and they all performed on stage. they sang 'i believe i can fly'. its really amazing how much these kids have developed. it was really a proud moment la for myself, the kids and also their parents la. to see them on the stage when for some of them ni, dulu dengan ultra shy nye. banyak perubahan yang they have gone thru.

afterwards, i had the pleasure of accompanying the senorita and co to this wedding in gombak. always a good thing to go to weddings nowadays. at least can compare notes la kan. planning weddings ni never is an easy job. it rained when we got there but by the time the groom was ready to proceed it stopped and the event was in full swing. sometimes u get to see some 'berbalas pantun' with 'kena bayar tol' and all. the last time i got to see all this pantuns and tolls was back when ahmad's sister got married which was in johor. kat mana lagi ade tol-tol ni eh? hehe so always make sure that ur best man is prepared la kan. luckily it was not that elaborate a set up coz i think diorang lalu dua tol aje. as compared to like four kot masa kakak ahmad kawin. in any case, here's wishing the bride and groom all the best.

after the wedding, we were off to cheras, for an open house. and then another one in puchong. makan tak ingat. i didn't binge or anything like that. in fact i thought i did well for myself by eating less than what i normally would have. hehe which by some standards is still a lot la kan.

after all that food, i wanted to end the night by just chillin. went to the local mamak and ordered some drinks. this dude selling fake dvd's came to our table and i asked whether they had talladega nights or not. bought a copy which he claimed was 'clear baik punya' and then i called to see if muz and eju were interested to watch. yeah la, me and the senorita asyik dok tergelak the two of us aje with the jokes, nak la share the joy. when we got there, the dvd turned out to be an out of focussed cinema copy yang malap semacam. hehe serves me right la kan. we ended up watching snakes on a plane instead.

which brings us back to the beginning. its funny how sometimes u find natures analogy describing life pretty much spot on. take snake venom for example. u get bitten, u die. but the venom that kills ya is the same thing that can help save ur life. okay la tak la drastic macam tu. when u miss someone, u ache, the thing u ache for is the same thing that would make the ache go away. missing someone, wanting them to be close. when they are gone we ache deep inside. when ur together it's like bliss in ur pocket. u want that feeling to remain with u, but ironically, u won't experience the feeling if they aren't gone in the first place. funny kan? hehe.. entah ler..

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…
