ting tang walla walla bing bang..

i remembered saving 20 ringgit to get a brick game machine at the local pasar malam at the time. played the thing to death. hehe played it till the highscore was stuck at 99999 something. i've always loved video games.

i use to go by this shop that has that galaga arcade machine after school. played on that for a bit too. this sundry shop near my mom's had like this nuts dispenser, where when u put 20 cents in u can have a go at playing western bar. hehe buleh stay kat situ berjam. this one time before the advent of all this cyber cafes and online gaming. there was this shop at taman permata which let u play on them micro genius machines. satu masa tu my brother and i snucked out of the house to have a go. hehe my dad came over and drag the both of us home. hehe tak ingat sama ade kena grounded or not.

so i've always been into games. my first games console was a gameboy. hehe i got that one during my a levels. it was a cure for boredom. kelakar. 18 year old kid main gameboy. there were some juniors at my house who also had them. hehe kelakar. i upgraded to a gameboy color back in uni and subsequently a gameboy advance. in between that time my flirtatious relationship with the playstation began. i think i got the playstation in the first year. can't remember exactly. tak mod pun. just bought a hack that u plug at the back of it that allows u to play copied cds. lasted also and when my ex and i got the ps2 i sold the playstation to a mate. staying in and playing games was like my favouritest pass time.

but i think i really prefer the mobility of a handheld more. just imagine sitting in front of the telly for 10 hours straight trying to finish off a game. hehe ahmad will probably testify to countlesss hours wasted camped trying to complete that notorious sniper level in snakeeater. hehe, man that was fun. with a handheld ni u can be more casual with ur gaming. hehe tak la hardcore sangat. a few minutes here a few minutes there. passing time on the train. tunggu bas.

so kira okay la jugak. i also got the little munchkin his very own gameboy micro. his friend had been lending him a gameboy every now and again. i figured he could have one on the account that he had been a good boy. the senorita even got him the madagascar game coz he liked the movie so much. hehe i like to move it move it.

agak nya bila nengok the two of us dok asyik main game aje the senorita pun wants to join also. so i've installed some games in her phone so she could also play whenever she's bored. hehe. currently tengah dok brag coz she past my highscore in super puzzle bobble.

anyways with all the gaming du das we haven't forgotten our sex.. in the city dvd which we finally finished watching on saturday. i tell ya, there's so much u can learn from watching sitc. hehe. thank you carrie and the gang and now true to my word i've introduced the senorita to mr michael scofield. we've started prison break. the first time for the senorita and understandably she has a lot of questions. i enticed her with the tale that she's gonna love the story because it's all about having a plan and executing it.

ah well, time flies when ur having fun. or in this case when ur playing video games or watching dvds. the fasting month is well on its way and i must say that it sure is fun fasting with a family of ur own. even the little munchkin is keeping to it. hehe i promised i'll buy him some more games if he can go the whole month all the way. don't think i'm spoiling him though. i happen to know of many kids growing up with games who turn out to be reasonable adults. hehe and still playing games some more. ;)

anyways, selamat berpuasa everyone..

3-3 Arsenal vs Bournemouth

That was a brilliant game if you're a neutral. Not so much if you're a Bournemouth fan or an Arsenal fan.
Giroud completed the comeback but it was a game that we should have played better. Still no Özil in the side. Bournemouth looked the better team from the start. Ref was pretty much spot on with some of his calls. The red card kinda swung the game to our favour but we never really capitalised as we still allowed Bournemouth time on the ball even with 10 men.
But I guess it was 1 points gained instead of 2 points loss.
Here's hoping for a draw tomorrow for the spuds and Chelsea game.

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…

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…
