boys to men..

well i'm suppose to update on the langkawi trip but i guess today's events should come first. i took the day off today to accompany my son, the little munchkin on him taking his first steps to being a man. yep. ladies and gentlemen, my boy is getting circumcised.

as a boy growing up with elder brothers. circumcisions is like expected and normal. u hear stories and ur elder brothers scare u with their tales of tok mudim with parang panjang karat, batang pisang lah. the best bits that i gathered from all the stories was the whole mandi kena berendam or even kena spray dengan bomba. but at least i was kinda prepared. i didn't know how the little munchkin was gonna take it tho. he didn't have an older brother to prep him for the experience to come. but i'm proud to say that my son passed his first test with flying colors.

the appointment was set for 11 am. we came earlier just to calm our nerves. hehe my nerves actually. i was being nervous for the little munchkin. he seemed relaxed aje. the doctor was held up due to an earlier operation. there were another 2 boys infront of the que. we waited outside the room and you can hear crying sounds coming from the doctor's room.

awak takut ke?
nak sunat sekarang tak buleh ke?

sempat jugak la video call the senorita. didn't think it was a good idea to video call during the procedure la kan. anyways when it was our turn the doctor apologized for us having to wait. he proceeded to do his thing la.

now this is where i have to take my hat off to the little munchkin. there was no crying out. no jerit-jerit. so cool. even the doctor said that he was the best patient for the day. i on the other hand.. hehe seriau gak nengok the doctor. he used this laser scalpel. well i think la that was what its called. nak describe the whole procedure pun tak tau la camana. there was bius of the sprayed variety. there were clamps. the sounds that u hear when the laser thingy cut away the skin was .. hmm semacam la kan. i held the little munchkin's hand all the way through. so brave la that boy. the doctor did his thing jahit semua. he said there was no need for pantang and what not and the little munchkin can eat whatever he wants.

mcdonalds papa.. hehe which i was more than happy to oblige la kan..

my boy is becoming a man..

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…
