there's still hope for everyone..

so i went to this wedding yesterday. the lovely senorita breaking from her normal 'don't wanna be going to any functions on a sunday' routine to accompany me. as any normal weddings go, this one went along just fine. the food was good and people were generally enjoying themselves. what i found amazing was how the couple met and subsequently decided that they wanna spend the rest of their lives together.

they met on friendster. the guy messaged the girl. the girl replied. and after like 3 months of online chats and phone calls, the guy decided to move across the sea to be closer to her. hehe okay la sarawak to kl is across the sea also right? i mean talk about knowing what u want and doing something about it eh? i really respect that la.

when fate presents u with certain opportunities, u need to be smart enuff to take a chance la. be it a chance encounter on an lrt. random comments on a blog. calling a number that ur friend gave ya just for the heck of it. or even coming across an interesting profile on the friendsters and the myspaces. when that opportunity comes - just take a chance. u never know where it can lead ya.

friday's vista hunt was a flop. hehe again? hehe its becoming like a trend plak for us monkees. suffering a dip in form kot. alas the top 4 winners were ur regular masters. hehe have to seriously buck up la to make any dent in their domination. i didn't even wait for the results as i had more pressing matters to attend to. the senorita came back from her trip. and i wanted to see her (having opted to enter a walkahunt instead of picking her up at the airport - hmm dah la tak menang plak tu). we had dinner and caught a movie afters. Babel. why? after all the buzz the movie created, potential oscar winner and what not. saja la nak tengok.

the movie is, for me personally is a big 'aah okay.. but what was the fuss all about again??' experience. there's like different stories interwoven together. of course there was a central theme to but u kinda got like a rojak feel to it then a properly crafted sequence of images and portrayal of emotions. apela aku merepek ni. tengok dvd aje la kot. hehe. but if u wanna see it for urself then by all means pegi ler.

aha lupa plak. that sunday also, i managed to relive my childhood dream of wanting to front a rock band by joining ahmad's project band rocking it out at this one studio dekat ss2. dok melalak lagu jeremy (pearl jam), like a stone (audioslave) and a bunch of other patched up numbers ranging from wings to gnr to ape kemende entah lagi. pearl jam tu buleh la makan lagi. tapi chris cornell dalam audioslave.. pergh. hehe semput pakcik. especially cochise. fcuk. hehe was like so in denial. hehe buleh.. buleh sampai. hehe. flat out screamed tepehape entah in the end.

ni kira macam side project abg ahmad kita ni. grouping some friends together to chill out and make music. hehe kalau dah confident sket nanti maybe we might just perform la kat memana. hehe. yeah. ada berani ke?

so sekian sahaja update untuk kali ini. hingga bertemu lagi di rancangan yg akan datang.

p/s congrats again to sherrie and reza.

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…
