go ahead.. make my day..

my mom came over that sunday. my wan alang from pahang wanted to come visit. so my dad, fresh from one oh his more successful fishing jaunts and my sister ana came along. i asked my mom to call once they left the house. the senorita wanted to get the timing right because she was preparing some cucur. didn't want to do it too early in case it gets cold but u won't wanna do it too late oso.

anyways they came over just around half past five. my wan alang used to be a midwife u see. she can tell a lot from looking and listening to the mom's tummy. i kid u not. in those days without ultrasound and 4d scans, the more experience midwives usually can guess it right.

when she was listening to the senorita's tummy, she commented that the little jj is "kembar air" or water twin as opposed to "kembar darah". something about there's a lot of fluids inside the amniotic sac causing little jj to "swim" easily inside the senorita's belly. hehe i'm just hazarding a guess here. this was not wan alang's exact words la kan. apparently, "kembar air" more often than not means that the birthing process would be less troublesome. wan alang also confirmed what the doctor said and what the scans were telling us that it's a pwincess. hehe.

but we still bought neutral baby clothes just in case.

11) how has she made ur day?
hmm when u say made my day what do u mean eh? apart from waking up next to her every morning i think she has made my day countlessly. but i guess for me it was when she broke the news la. ala the news that we were expecting little jj.

when she said yes, i was happy. when she said she was late.. i was slightly optimistic but i didn't want to get my hopes up. when she showed me the test and said it is positive.. i was ecstatic! i even manage to not crack that joke about have u wash the stick or not.

when we got married we figured that we should take things easy. we thought of planning for a bit but that only lasted for two months. then we decided we didn't want to wait and we tried for it. after a few false alarms i was beginning to get worried. the senorita had already had the little munchkin. i was unlucky (or maybe i was) not to have one the last time. so ada sket risau juga. u don't know la kan, firing blanks ka. got problem ke.

i know its not easy to conceive. it's no longer as simple as insert part A into slot B. u have to consider the timing, u need to get everything right. the planets need to be aligned or some shit like that. when u think that u've finally got it. out pops the red flag.

anyways, the senorita really had me when she broke the news. she was running 2 weeks late. i said lets just get a pregnancy kit and test. she said she would get one and do it. i think i got a call and she said that it was negative. frust jugak. coz i had a feeling that this time would be it. little that i know of what she had planned.

it was her birthday. and we had dinner at the free dessert's place. i should have realised when she kept on hinting that she needed to get more comfortable shoes. i wanted to get her this nice pair of heels but she said she wanted something more comfortable. duh. stoopid init?

anyways we had dinner and there it was. she asked me to look at this pregnancy test stick and lo and behold.. its positive! hehe felt liked going across the table and give her a big kiss. that made my day, nay that made my year.. er i think getting married made my year.. ah never mind la kan everything that had something to do with the senorita made my whatever.. hehe

so now how many months later, we are in our 29th week. hehe. i think come july she'll be making feel that which i have never felt before..

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…
