what's that rattling inside ur pockets..

ah change is always good eh? i'm starting a new job now. suppose to move a floor down but they don't really have a place for me but i might just move anyways. hehe, do i have to change the blog title? hmm maybe temporarily or maybe i won't bother. heard murmurs that we would probably be based on level 35 anyways later so fudge it.

the training that i went to was kinda aptly timed. i found out a lot about myself, my career anchors and the things that motivates me. ideally u would want to be doing something that gives u pleasure. but the pleasure u derive from work can also change depending on how passionate u are in ur work. pleasure.. passion.. hmm where am i going with this? hehe gatal.

anyways, the new job hopefully would provide enough challenges and opportunities for me to grow and become a better person personally and professionally.

talking about changes..

16) How has the senorita change u?
in a relationship, u can't really force someone to change. u can try but most often than not it just doesn't work. the way i see it, when u meet someone, the two different personalities will clash and if the relationship is strong enough the two of you would probably come out of the whole mashed up bits with new personalities of ur own. a result of give and take and also adapting to each other's quirks and what nots.

i believe that the senorita and i have come to this level in which our personalities have pretty much been assimilated. hehe no. i have not become a male toughcookee and she has not become a female acat. but there are things that we could not have imagine doing when we were single but now when we're together it's almost second nature its freaky. but i'm not gonna talk about the senorita la.

so enough with the mukadimah. what are the changes? hmm. is it going to be worth reading or not? hehe here goes.

i listen to mariah carey. (cue stunned silence) er what's wrong with that? people love mariah. yes but not the acat of old. i mean come on la mariah? this coming from a grunge lovin dude who only has rock songs on his playlist and nothing else? but have u guys heard her latest stuff? seriously, hehe it's great its catchy. <= u see? i'm even justifying why i listen to mariah. confirm this is all the senorita's fault. hari-hari mau kasi dengar dalam itu kereta when she drops me off. mau sangkut juga. bukan saja mariah la kan. itu glen fredly pun sudah ada mau dengar. i mean the shift in musical preference is amazing. hehe.

i do house chores! i think my mom would be very proud of me with this one. it doesn't make u less of a man if u get down and dirty to do ur chores. guys tend to get stereotyped with taking out the trash and doing the dishes, but why stop there? ironing and the laundry. doing all that is just another change in me that the senorita has brought out. knowing my responsibilities.

i can be a "garang" dad. i used to have this idea that i won't want to be the strict dad. i wanna be the cool dad. let the mom be all garang and u can come in and be all buddy-buddy with ur kid. in reality it's better to set a united front. u can't be contradicting each other. i've seen the garang side of the senorita which i really thought was scary enough but i was shocked jugak at how i also could be as fierce or maybe even more at times. keshian the little munchkin eh.

i now dress smarter. hehe. really? bukan u always wear baju treasure hunt aje ke where ever u go? aha, my clothes now has already been sorted into 2 major piles, most clothes prior to marrying the senorita is now in the pile marked "never to be worn outside the house". hehe but i'm not complaining, she has taste la. the shirts she got me makes me look ahem smart. but it comes with a warning label. don't be menggataling okay. me menggatal? please la, i'm a happily married man.

hmm apa lagi?

i think i'm now more sensitive. hehe i get easily riled with stuff i watch on telly. maybe its the pregnancy hormones. yeah right. hehe, but maybe its because i like the way the senorita shuts me up when i get all excited trying to articulate my points. hehe back then it was just a look. now dah kawin ni. hehe. hmm.. nak go and start something la now. hehe i'll explain to her the whole market dynamics of the rising crude oil price plak.

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…
