here's to a new year..

unlike last year's new year's eve celebration, this year we opted for a low key thingy. the experience of getting stuck in that god awful jam dekat the curve last time was enough la. this time its dinner at muz and eju's. we made our way around 8 pm. had to stop at the local petronas for a quick fill up. nope this wasn't because i'm duped by them sms messages saying that there'd be a fuel price hike come 1st jan, nope my car was running on empty. saw a colleague of mine just a few car's infront at the next pump. tak la call takut meletup plak nak isi minyak. hehe.

we got the necessary stuff to bring over. juice (hehe tak minum fizzy drinks la konon), snacks (or as muz would say - jajan) and some bread. we stopped by restauran subang coz the gorgeous senorita said the baby dah lapar. hehe makan roti cappati and air asam boi. the drive over was relatively smooth. there was a lot of cars on the road as u can expect la kan.

arrived at the couples house around 8.30ish i think. dinner was still being cooked. some exotic recipe eju got from her (kazakhstan ke?) colleague. ade soup. mash cauliflower, and the main course was roast chicken stuffed with potatos. drinks was sparkeling ribena. woot. hehe. habis makan, we were joined by ezanee and ross. bringin jajan as well. teman la makan jugak.

sila makan..

there was not much entertainment on tv. hehe we ended up watching bits of the nujum pak belalang movie on channel 2. p ramlee never fails to crack me up la, hehe even picked up this annoying habit from the little munchkin, nak bagi ulasan time movie. hehe. flipped across the channels and what not. nengok concerts ni tak berahi la plak kan.

so we had to make our own entertainment la. ezanee/ross brought taboo. so we had a go at that la. interesting jugak the game. the first time the senorita and i played it. it was 3 against 3. lai li tam plom to pick sides and all. hehe kelakar. very the healthy way to spend new year's eve ain't it.

we stopped for a bit to watch the fireworks. we could see clearly the fireworks from klcc, dataran merdeka and i think the other one was from where eh? entah. but the one at dataran merdeka was definitely the grandest. a good 15 mins of burning money eh. hehe.

it was a fitting end to the year la. here's to 2008 and whatever challenge it may bring..

tak payah tunggu lama pun for a challenge. keluar aja from the couple's place, i found out that my car's front tyre sudah kena some metal clip thingy and angin sudah keluar. sheesh. terpaksa la call muz up mintak tolong. not that i really needed pun saja aje ngengada. hehe.

and that was the new year's celebration. with the new year ni plak come la the new school year. the little munchkin is now in standard 5. he starts today. the senorita and i were on hand for the school fees payment and what not. semangat betul bebudak nak sekolah. tried to teach him how to tie his school-tie. ended up doing it on me first. and just give him yg dah siap ikat punye.

first day of school
hehe hensemnye dia.. alolololo

the plan now is to be more involved with tlm's education. nak sit down buat homework and what not. bila lagi nak practise all the things i did with the kids at ilham and wangsa maju tu with my own son ye dok.

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…
