la la la la..

spare a thought for khalid boulahrouz. the dutch defender was faced with a family tragedy with the loss of his prematurely born daughter. but he showed great spirits to fight on and insist that he's ready to face russia in the quarter finals. it was quite a shock la to read. its not something u would wish upon anyone. germany beat portugal to reach the semis. but that news is second to what christiano ronaldo would announce in the next couple of days. is he leaving manure? hehe let us all hope so.

its my fifth day of multi-modal commuting. the cycling to and from the lrt station has been getting much easier. the main stickler remains the whole carrying the bike up the stairs and making sure that it doesn't impede anyone in the train. today was a bit.. testing. i got my usual spot and tried as much to squeeze myself in to minimize the space that i took up. then this one stop ni, this one hiyooge auntie came in and things became a tad awkward.

it was not pleasant.

oh and i missed my stop coz this one guy stood at the doorway as the doors were closing. thought of exiting at ampang park and cycle all the way but i was already running late. i had to go pick up tlm's report card earlier in the morning.

he finally got it right this time. the teacher explained his performance and i asked about how he was behaving in class. apparently the boy talks with his friends too much. so much so that he often didn't have time to jot things down off the board. and there i was thinking that this was due to him having difficulties. i have asked him before to just copy the questions first and then start on the answers once he finish copying. he has this habit of wanting to go thru the whole question everytime. a bit like me la.

so when i found out about the 'banyak berborak' and 'main-main' bit, i'll be having a strong word la with him on this back home. time to put on my 'papa garang' hat.

i told the gorgeous senorita that i felt like i was losing some weight. hehe. she scoffed at the notion. hehe asked me to look at my 'perut' and chin. i so love la my wife. hehe. hehe still have a loooong way to go. but seriously i think all the cycling and lifting is having some positive effect. hehe. baru nak masuk seminggu, imagine after a few months. woot woot. yeah right.

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…
