happy birthday du da..

birthday girl and boys..

my mom's ayam masak merah is da bomb. hehe the birthday do was overloaded with cake. hehe. but like i always say, u have to make room for dessert. in this case, u have to make room for cake..

5) does it really matter who's wrong or right?
hehe what kind of question that? entah. its 2 am and i'm watching the rerun of the AF concert, so go figure. btw, the two girl/boy duets were really interesting eh.

growing up, i use to have this strong inclination to always be right. most of the time i am la kan, sheah right. it even came to a point where i would rigorously defend my position. now things are easier, u can google a lot of stuff if ur not sure. back then u pretty much rely on books and ur ability to bullshit. hehe. but i seldom had to apologize because i'm seldom wrong. this kinda led me to always want to win arguments. this was not good la.

it's one thing to always want to win an argument because its ur job, like if ur a lawyer or something, or ur in a debate, the one with 'this house believes" as the opening line. but do we really need to win every argument when it comes to love?

well it may depend on the point of argument i hear u say? its kinda hard to pick and choose because arguments are aplenty. so which one do u choose?

can u choose not to argue? well u can try but that's kinda hard. besides arguments are not always bad. u just don't have to win them all.

where am i going with this? ah yes, couples should try to see every argument from the "us" viewpoint instead of the "me" and "u". take this example, the senorita and i were talking about this bathroom cleaning agent cif. she was telling me how it was supposed to be better than jif. i told her that its the same thing, but she insisted that it was different. now, had i argued with her and did my usual lemme google it u moron bit, i would have easily won the argument and she would probably have to admit that she was wrong. cif and jif are the same. but u'd bet la that somebody might be sleeping on the couch la afterwards eh?

is it really worth it? hehe. i know i know the fact that i'm citing the example here now might get me in some hot water later but hey its only academic. hehe. its trivial yes, but the trivial has this habit of snowballing if ur not careful. if u look at it from the "us" standpoint u'll quickly realise that it's not worth it to even try to win the argument, and just let it slide and move on.

there are things more important to think about.

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…
