the appropriateness of acting one's age..

the statement is not conjecture. we should act our age. in this sense we are required to be matured in situations that requires maturity. but do we still need to act our age when we're dealing with matters where acting our age might divert us from finding real soultions or real options to whatever the problem may be.

sometimes i amaze myself with this ability to dwell in seemingly vacuous arguments.

i didn't ride my bicycle today. the senorita missed having breakfast together and she had been hankering for nasi lemak. since she won't be able to have nasi lemak during confinement she figured might as well have her fill of nasi lemak while she still can. how can i resist la. her la not the nasi lemak. so after i sent tlm to school, i dropped by our local mamak for my roti canai and her nasi lemak. made a pitstop at 7/11 to get some chocolate milk and bread.

apparently the seven e was robbed about two months back. a group of mat rempits forced their way in. now as a precaution, from 1am to 6am all purchases will be entertained through the door. which to me was kinda pointless la since u can just break through the door with much ease. i was surprised because i used to think that this was a safe neighbourhood. heck the police station is soo near by. but u do wonder about the price of convenience. having to open 24/7 sure makes u an easy target. i remembered a friend of mine who worked part time at a 7 e was held up at knifepoint. luckily he escaped unhurt.

anyways i think it best if they have metal gratings and just conduct business through a window after hours. invest a bit to ensure safety.

the senorita always worry when i go down to the 7e at night. me in my kain pelikat. very the hazardous okay. kalau nak lari kena sinsing kain takut la teroverexposed plak. hehe. dah la awak tu suka go commando. heh. too much info.

so i didn't cycle today. we had breakfast and the senorita was her usual chatty self. she was commenting on the fact that she's having less and less options of things to wear. i got noching choo weaw.. wear nothing also can what. i jest. so she dropped me off at the lrt station before going about her business. i was running late, but the best bit about running late is u skip the madness of the morning rush. siap dapat duduk lagi kat taman bahagia. heh.

so i whipped out my psp. plug in my headphones and played pokemon emerald. heh? pokemon? what's wrong with u? hehe well i have gpSP installed which basically allows me to play all them gameboy advance games on my psp. i love nintendo. i mean their games la. eventhough the games have this kiddish look to it, it still appeals to adults as well. back to the pokemon. i think i bought a pokemon game when i was in uni. i even got muz to join me to get all the 150 pokemon in the original game. can't remember if we succeeded in doing that.

i'm not trying to justify anything. people might feel that heck if ur 29 and u still want to play video games go for more grown up games. well i do play these games. i have the scary silent hill origins and the gory god of war available but the lure of the cutesy nintendo games still appeals to me.

er. is that it? that's ur whole acting ur age bit? hehe. well no.

when it comes to age, it is a common belief that u get wiser as u grow older. and with age comes a certain arrogance in which we just believe that we pretty much know everything and if some young upstart comes in with a different view point we tend to pretty much dismiss them without a seconds thought. remember those days when we were growing up, listening to our teachers and discovering things for the first time, we understood that there was a lot more that we didn't know and a lot that we could learn. the humility that comes with this acceptance made us more open what others have to say.

it would be so easy to get all political on this but i just can't be arsed.

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…
