well malam raya to we arrive at our apartment around 2ish am. sok sek sok sek dah nak pukul 3. gosok baju anak semua, masuk tido.

usually it takes me around 30-45 minutes to drive from KJ to my parents' place. pagi raya punye drive with senorita schumacher took about 20 minutes kot. i think my mom still tak tido lagi from last night's worth of cooking. sian. after everyone dah balik from the masjid we were ready for another of the raffali clan's long time tradition. the salam-salaman pagi raya bit. now for those uninitiated to our family, this has the potential to become an overwhelming event.

abang long start dulu..

i think everyone will go thru the pagi raya drama bits right? well when ur in a big family like ours ni macam-macam telatah and gelagat dapat dilihat. my dad was trying his best not to get too emotional by being as sarcastic as possible. but i think towards the end tu dia terasa jugak la kan. dekat rumah tu, adik beradik yg kerja la kan will give duit raya to adik-adik diorang. so my youngest brother ariff tu la yg paling untung.


muka smug dapat duit raya banyok..

we have this award for the most dramatic performance pagi raya. my dad said that if my sister ita was there she wud have won hands down la but this year anugerah globe untuk "mintak maaf paling beremosi" sekali jatuh kepada .. ariff. hehe. and if there was an award for potong stim moment, it must fall to my dad. as my brother adi was starting to mintak maaf semua, dengan selamba saja my dad tanya.. ko plak adi bila nak kawin? hehe potong.

afterwards it was time for maakan. ayam masak merah mummy. masak lodeh. abah's lemang. pagi aje dah dua round kalu.


tiga dara pingitan..

the senorita was all over the ayam masak merah. hehe bagus la. makan laa. makan. hehe. the little munchkin was in between eating and the ps2. i was well eating oso. my brother ijai put his hotel experience to good use. hidangan and the drinks was all him.

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…
