the langkawi escapade part 2..

Langkawi 023
the pool life..

when we arrived at the hotel we were already tired and not really in any mood to go out so we decided to hit the swimming pool. twas quite a big pool. the water was just nice and it was good to just chill. our room was strategically placed in the sense that when u open the doors to u can just walk straight to the pool. the beach was also a few steps away.

the pool had this deep area. which was like 2.49 meters. the little munchkin swam effortlessly and commented that he was a 'lelaki sejati' because he can swim at the deep end. the senorita also was 'le.. perempuan sejati' coz she oso can swim at the deep end. apparently i was not that sejati. hehe. tried to swim and panic overtook me as i gulp in some o that swimming pool water goodness. nasib baik la tak buat drama like lemas or anything like that. malu aje.

that night the plan was to make our way to pantai cenang and find a place to eat. there were some eateries at pantai tengah where we were tapi biasa la gatal. drive punya drive i think we i missed a turn and we seemed to be going on for ages. last last tukar plan and we drove on to kuah to see what can we find over there. susah gak nak drive bila tak familiar with the route. my bad oso sebab tak plan properly eh.

lapor nak makan.

tak banyak kedai yang bukak. or maybe we didn't look at the right places. anyways we settled at this eatery la. sebelah dia kedai nasik campur yang quite ramai orang. the tom yam place. next to it dah full so we sat at this pakcik's place which only sells mee soup and nasi ayam. we ordered food from the tom yam place. but we ordered the drinks from the pakcik. he makes a mean nescafe ais. the senorita and tlm already got their food. i was still waiting. tunggu punya tunggu last-last when i checked with the tom yam place the guy can just say er sorry la bang kita tak buat abang punya. wtf? so ended up makan nasi ayam aje.

for a tourist spot langkawi sure shuts up shop quite early. some shops 9-9.30 dah tutup. we went back to the hotel and planned for tomorrow.

now the packaged we got came with breakfast for two so we were prepared to pay for the little munchkin. the funny (not ha ha funny tho) bit was instead of having ur standard kids are under 12 bits u have this one line next to the wall and those above the line will be considered as adults. ridiculous aint it? hehe the little munchkin's only 10. hehe but then again we won't be calling him little for long la kan. he's already as tall as the mom.

anak mak..

after breakfast the first order of the day was to go to the underwater world. the little munchkin was excited. ala kids and fishes and animals. i had high expectations for the place. but then i remembered that there was that incident with the dead fishes and all so we don't know if they'd did anything about that.

the penguins were great..

it was very educational. we even got the little munchkin to read all the information on the board. but true enuff a big chunk of the exhibit was closed because of the dead fishes. but there were a lot more la that u can see. the 3d cinema also was under maintenance so u got like a 3d movie with no 3d.

japanese carp..

keeping to the routine we had lunch at kuah. mcdonalds. hehe. did a spot of shopping for a bit before making our way back to the hotel. the senorita had her spa appointment. so it was off to the pool for myself and the little munchkin..

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…
