home economics 101..

so today i washed the car. saving a whopping RM 16 if i were to send it to the carwash at giant. apparently the matrix counts as an mpv so they charge u more than ur usual RM 10 for a normal sedan. which i find a bit ridiculous lah. so when we were out shopping for some baby stuff at sogo this morning we got all the necessary essentials to wash the car. sponge, wash cloth, wash and wax thingy.

so yes, got savings.

but then i spent 20 bucks to get some take out coz i didn't want the senorita to strain herself cooking.

so in the end it all evens out.

i guess its always a challenge to save on stuff when ur used to certain comforts.

the senorita was called into action for the flying monkees last saturday for my company's sports and recreational club treasure hunt. it was a last minute thing since our fourth member had to bail due to another commitment. she felt okay enough to contribute, and she put a lot of the 'not heavily pregnant' participants to shame. hehe.

tak nampak pewut..

we ended up getting second place. got caught by the tie breaker. question countdown. the winner is our closest rival. hehe. they're good. hehe. we started off pretty much on the same

level. but i guess they had more practice. but lets give credit where it is due. hehe. like rivals in a pokemon game plak. well we did get some isetan vouchers for our troubles. and muz and eju already redeemed theirs.

incidentally, khalil, asyiq and ana along with asyiq's friend entered the malaysian franchise association walkahunt held at berjaya times square. they got 7th place. hehe with no help from me pun. if the were to ask me for help, they would have gotten 4th haha. but knowing anak-anak raffali ni, we all can be a little stubborn sometimes. and confident and a little pigheaded. hehe. but i love them all the same.

we went back to keramat afterwards. wanted to come celebrate my dad's birthday which is today. my dad is 59 this year. hehe i still remember the time when my dad still celebrates his 35th birthday for the umpteenth time. hehe i love the old man. he definitely has grown softer with age. tengok dia melayan farzana, hehe, siap dengan his special song some more. hehe. kelako. anyways, we all had dinner, well those of us who were there la. the senorita was especially pleased la i guess coz she had a taste of the special iceblend that my dad doesn't sell.

we got home around midnight. i left my keys there. nasib baik the senorita brought hers. if not it was a long way back to keramat la gamak nye.

shopping for baby stuff at sogo is a revelation. hehe. you can get great bargains la. go la check it out. we had lunch at the food court. at our favourite minang food place. best. and its cheap. hehe, if i work around here for sure punya that will be the place i eat. but dunno la if it gets boring after a while eh.

the euro final between germany and spain tonight would be interesting to watch. from the gunners view point we have jens lehman in goal for germany and cesc fabregas, if he plays la that is, on the attack for spain. whoever wins, hopefully the fans get a good game eh.

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.

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…
