pink elephants..

times are hard. its getting more challenging just making a living. i was walking back from lunch when this girl stopped me just as i was about to enter the office.

"hi there, my name is bayani can we exchange business cards please?"

i saw her card. works in a bank. probably looking for contacts to pitch her investment fund ideas.

i said no thanks. partly because i don't really trust strangers i meet of the street to invest my money and mostly because i don't have much money to spend anyways :). she didn't look that disappointed and quickly moved on to the next prospect.

i remember this one time when i think somebody leaked our departmental phone list to some telemarketer and they started to call up everyone one after the other. i tend to not entertain these people. no personal touch. heck i don't even entertain friends who wanted to give a spiel on what new fangled multi level du da that they want to introduce me to.

anyways difficult times call for a different, more creative approach. you have to put all shame aside and just go for it. for every 10 people who ignored the girl i'm sure there's one or two who did exchange cards and what not. in fact a colleague of mine said he got that girl's card although he didn't actually give his..

investment banker turn mascot.. hehe yeah right

i don't even know where i'm going with this..

p/s when i told the senorita about this she said the exact same thing -  ala kalau 10 orang di approach takkan tak de satu yang accept. great minds think alike? hehe.

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…
