the saturday do..

the weekend was quite packed. choc full of activities. hehe. first it was off to shop for the little munchkin's raya get up. we got up quite early and drove off to midvalley to see what metrojaya has to offer. keluar rumah before ten because we didn't want to have parking troubles. true enuff banyak lagi empty spaces when we arrived but it was filling up fast. when we got there, metrojaya was still closed so we waited for a bit.

tunggu kedai bukak..

i remembered when i was a kid the cool raya clothes would almost often be kiki lala or kiko or what ever name brands that were there at the time. but the little munhkin has pretty much outgrown those brands. we have to look for stuff at the teenager sections. dapat la some nice cargo pants and nicer kotak shirts. we also got him some nice pants at cape cod. size 30 okay. i was like size thirty when i was doing my a levels. hehe takpe kanak-kanak tengah membesar.

buying the pants was a bit of a chore. no one was attending the cape cod section. we had to get the east india guy to do alterations for the pants. kena potong sket sebab panjang. then we have to wait for more than an hour sebab ramai orang kot. so the senorita did her round of shopping. blamed me for her getting some shoes coz she waited too long. hehe i managed to add to my work attire with a maroon shirt from wan husin aka van heusen.

lama gak dekat midvalley. we manage to go to the gardens just to see what the new place was like. i liked the layout. tapi tak sempat la nak round habis robinsons, isetan semua.

before making our move, the senorita reminded me to get something for my parents since it was their 36th anniversary together. got some nice chocolates at leonidas. hehe hopefully adik-beradik yg lain will keep their hands off those. hehe.

the plan was to berbuka puasa with my parents and all the crazy gang yang ada kat rumah. we'd have a little celebration for my parents and basically just chill aje. semua ada except for asyiq my dr to be brother in russia and also my sister jannah kat penang. the little munchkin again was busy melayan the two terrors aidil and nabil. dok main ps2 and make believe wrestling. risau gak sebab budak dua ekor tu kecik aje compared to tlm. but semua okay aje.

my sister ita baked a cake, chocolate with strawberries on top. i bought ice cream and air tebu. my mom cooked my favourite masak lemak kobis, and daging dendeng. my dad bought kari kepala ikan and crabs. pergh. mewah sungguh makan. masa nak tiup lilin tu the two tikes to yang sebok, nak niup. pantang ade lilin. hehe.

happy anniversary..

afterwards we chilled a bit la sambil my aspiring artist sister ana belt out some tunes on the guitar. kitorang dok ngaco dia bila dia nak buat album eh. hehe album gambar dah banyak :) missed all those fun family moments. hehe can't wait to create more fun family moments of my own.

we left the house around 10. i wanted to stay and watch the footie but tlm was getting restless coz it was close to his bedtime. arsenal won 1 -0. so it goes to show that i don't have to watch them play anymore coz they still win anyways. hehe takbur.

all that leads up nicely to the highlight of the weekend which is the follow up to the whole can't cook, won't cook du da.. to be continued..

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…
