new year.. new u.. new me..

still in the new year's mood. spent the new year's eve at the curve with the lovely senorita. it's a change from last year's stay in. the curve served up some local artists, the likes of jaclyn victor, reshmonu, and a few indie rock outfit i don't care to name. we stayed on to watch the fireworks. and then stayed a while longer trying to get out of the car park. but it was good fun none the less.

so as new years go, its the time of resolutions and goals and stuff like that. i've pretty much narrowed down my resolutions to 5. hehe ambitious? hehe see laa. can't remember my track record as far as resolutions go la. well here they are in no particular order..

1. drink more water..
i wanted to say i'd stop drinking coke. hehe yeah. acat without coke. the longest i've goe without coke was like 6 months kot. hehe back in uni due to a health scare. but then, why stop at coke? why not all carbonated drinks? so lets just focus on drinking more water. hehe playing it safe? naah. i think its a manageable goal don't you think?

2. be more organized..
i guess this is a bit vague. it could mean a lot of things right? more organized how? financially? personally? more organized by having a more tidy cubicle? more organized by shaving more regularly and lose that whole gruff look? well i think i'd wanna be more organized in terms of punctuality and keeping up with plans and stuff. don't wanna be losing that spontaneous streak, but it doesn't hurt to be a bit structured la with things.

3. the perfect who for the gorgeous u..
i'm actually counting the days now. the anticipation is building. some sense of familiarity, but i'm not gonna take anything for granted. i know we all have it in us. the capacity to be the better husband. the perfect father. the funny thing is, well not la funny ha ha kinda way, i have this belief that i can be all that i wanna be because of her.

4. learn another language..
been meaning to do this since ever. and nope, fake tamil and pseudo french doesn't count.

5. take up a hobby..
the gorgeous senorita suggested we do ballroom dancing. hehe if those videos of me doing that crazy dance ever get released i'm sure she'll think twice la kan about this. but hey its an idea. well there are a few other options. knitting? cross-stitching? hehe.

hehe i'm still good on all of the above. i took my sisters, ana and jannah to watch a movie at one utama with the senorita. we wanted to see that night at the museum but it was full. so we caught confessions of pain instead. the girls were entranced by takeshi kaneshiro. hmph. anyways, i didn't order any coke. hehe. and when i got home, despite there's like some vanilla coke left in the freezer, i chose to drink plain ol h2o. hehe. yeah yeah.. lets see how long he last eh? hehe.

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…
