the final stretch..

The sight of your wife going through labor is something that you will never forget. The sight of the doctor holding up your baby girl is something that you will cherish forever. The sound of her first cries. How it felt when you first hold her in your arms. It’s a feeling that you just can't describe. 

hello world..

We have already resigned ourselves to the fact that little jj would be coming out much later than we hoped. But I guess this girl just love to surprise.

The day started off like any other. The senorita cooked her Sunday nasi goreng before we sent tlm for his tae kwon do practice. We went to jusco one utama to get some groceries. The senorita was still okay with the walking and all. We went home and picked up tlm. There was some work done on the electricity so there was none till much later in the afternoon. The senorita was telling me that she felt like she was leaking. She called her mom to check. We had seen some discharges before with the mucous plug coming loose. But this time it was a bit different. Thinner. Watery. It didn't feel like the water broke though.

The senorita went to the toilet and there it was I could see clear water flowing down her legs. Okay - now confirm the water bag has burst. The antenatal lessons prepared us in a sense that we knew that there was still time to go before going to the hospital. Plus the senorita wasn't in any major pain. We waited till about 5pm before heading off to the hospital.

We checked in. preliminary check up indicated that the senorita was only 2cm dilated. So there was still a long wait to go. Tlm wasn't allowed to stay - so we got his grandparents to pick him up.

The contractions were becoming more frequent. I was looking at my watch just to watch how far apart they were. When we left for the hospital it was close to 10 minutes apart. By 8pm it was already 5 minutes apart and by the time the senorita was all ready to push it was already 9.40pm. The senorita wanted to go to the loo coz she felt like she wanted to pee. I asked the nurse to help her, the nurse decided to check on the senorita. Turns out she was already almost 10 cm dilated. So they decided to call the doctor.

When the doctor came, the senorita was already resisting the urge to push. The contractions were becoming more intense and my hands can testify to the awesome grip that the senorita possessed. Not that I’m complaining. She was doing the hard part. The doctor told the senorita to push. Hold ur breath and push. I didn't countla but the senorita pushed - and the baby was already crowning. Another push and the head is already out. next up was the shoulders and body. Finally little jj was out. Around 10:15 pm 20072008. she weighed in at 3.27 kg.

i'm so proud of my senorita. She fought hard today and totally deserved her rest. She’s asleep with little jj by her side. And I’m due for some shut eyes soon too.

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…
