has it been 22 weeks already?

Ah the weekends. Its always great to be able to just lepak after a week of toiling with work. Hehe. Macam la kerja buruh kasar yang nak toil-toil la kan. As usual we had our antenatal class on Wednesday night. The topic at hand was labour. Since labour is quite an important part of the whole course, we will be covering it in the last 3 sessions.

Well labour is exactly what it is. Kerja berat. Labour of love perhaps? We were shown a simple diagram of the whole three stages of labour. The contraction timings during the early, active, transitional and when ur in labour. The options available to relieve pain during delivery. The misconception people have, well I guess this is more to us being fed by tv la ni, bila water break aje terus masuk spital terus keluar baby.

The whole delivery process takes hours okay.

The thought of that aje agak scary don’t u think?

But of course la I’ll be there every step of the way la kan.

It was also interesting to find out more about pain relieving alternatives. You hear a lot about epidurals but I never knew that it actually involves inserting some fine fibre thingy down the back of your epidural cavity along your spine. Although the procedure is fairly routine nowadays, the jury is still out on the long-term side effects to the mom. Some say that they experience back pain long after the procedure. Ada yang okay aje. So entah.

Time sure flies eh. We’re already close to our 22nd week already. Passed the halfway mark of the pregnancy. Everything is going okay. Little JJ is kicking hard, u’d wonder if betul ke little princess ni? Hehe but the gorgeous senorita dulu apparently pun kuat menendang. So tak tau la kan. Hehe.

Have a good weekend everyone.

p/s waah not even a mention of the big game this Sunday. Hehe.

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…
