from samui..

a quick update from koh samui..

hehe heheh hehe hehe..

well we touched down at samui airport around 8.05 local time. it was a smooth journey. the guy that was supposed to pick us up from the airport was waiting as we cleared immigration. the hotel was about 10 km away. the chaba samui resort. we checked in and as expected the hotel welcomed us honeymooners with rose petals on the bed and a cake. the room was decent enough. we were upgraded to the ocean wing but u can't really see the ocean, nope not from our balcony tho. but it is within walking distance.

on monday we were treated to a half day's tour of the island. our guide chaiyouk took us around in a van - just the two of us! now that's what u call a private tour eh. we went to most of the major tourist spots on samui. took the opportunity to go on an elephant trecking tour. it's not comfortable at all. imagine what it may have felt for the elephant.

the gorgeous senorita has stipulated that she will only eat thai food. so tom yam till u drop la ni. but we went to this one indian restaurant who surprisingly had halal food. so i had myself some chicken briyani. which was good. and the tom yam there ain't half as bad. ironic. good tom yam at an indian eatery.

then this morning we went on a snorkeling trip to koh tau and koh nangyuan. i gulped on some seawater the first time i went in. the gorgeous senorita - who was hot ala halle berry in that james bond movie - didn't need any help swimming. i utilized a safety jacket coz as we all know i can't swim for shizzy. the corals, fishes were beautiful. its really amazing. rasa tenang aje berenang dengan ikan-ikan. we went there via speedboat. the outward trip was okay, but the return trip.. god i tell ya.. sheesh. i was scared. the waves were crashing and we bobbed and bounced on the open seas. the weather took a change for the worse and i was pretty much hanging on for dear life. some people can just look calm and collected. the beach was a sight to behold.

anyways, we just had our dinner. the sexy senorita is beside me checking up on urgent work matters. will update later on the rest of the holiday..

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…
