What the...

Okay so i'm like watching natasha 2 on telly right. Don't ask why la but is it just me or do you guys find the story line a bit tiring? I mean you actually get physically tired from watching it. Letih. No wonder i don't watch that much free telly.

Which brings us to the whole astro hiking up their fees bit. Some smart minister has been saying that if you can't put up with it just don't subscribe. Stop just watch free tv aje la. Hmm yeah that's the whole plan anyways. You get people all hooked on astro and then slowly raise the fees what you gonna do eh. Tak mampu can stop la langgan. Tak de orang nak question lansung ke the whole monopolistic grip astro has over the pay tv market?

I know some may argue that for a capital intensive set up like astro it would be more efficient to have just one big player. But look at how much control the set up have. Okay there is competition you say. But do you actually know anyone subscribing to that other service. My what's the name tu?

I guess it's in the best interest for the government that astro makes a lot of money. More taxes. But to say to the masses that hey if you can't afford it stop watching just sounds so wrong.

In this day and age of information is power one can't deny that having astro with its educational channels is an advantage. And you get the news channels which is good also. Not only af okay.

So i guess we just have to change our lifestyles eh. He he can't remember how it was like without cable eh.

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…
