consolidating your positions..

at any given point on my commute to work, i have on me several gadgets. my nokia E90, my philips mp3 player, my old tungsten t5 palm and my nintendo ds. i noticed that there are a number of things that commuters do while on their travels.

1. sleep - if ur lucky enough to get a seat on the train, this is definitely what u shud be doing. and this is also what u need to do if ur seating in one of them reserved seats and u don't feel like giving ur seat up for those more deserving.

2. listen to music - u can pretty much listen to music from a number of sources. most phones can do it. mp3 players are also getting cheaper. and yes u have ur ipods and what nots. so u can happily listen to ur favourite downloaded tunes while ur on the go. u need to ensure that u have the most geekiest looking headphones available to really stand out. for this purpose i have my pink sony retractable earphones.

3. watch videos - u can also watch videos of your favourite tv shows on the go. i'm having a blast watching the second part of heroes season 3. this is to the annoyance of those standing next to me of course. since they can't hear anything.

4. read - you can never go wrong with a good book. a correct book in hand can go a long way towards creating an impression of how u want people to see u. stephen hawking's a brief history of time would probably send out a more intelligent vibe than 50 stupid fart jokes of all time will ever give u. but nowadays people read on their electronic devices so u can't really tell the book from its cover eh.

5. play video games - now this is definitely my favourite. i've gone through the whole gamut of mobile gaming that there is. i played on my phone, my palm, a psp and now the ds. i noticed them iphones or ipod touch also looked cool with their games. but as a serious fan of rpg's i'm finding the ds pretty much spoiling me for choice. at the moment i'm playing dragon quest iv. i'm telling ya i never thought i can fell all these weird emotions just from playing a game. that scene when all the villagers banded together to protect you, the chosen one whilst all them monsters came attacking was.. so touching. especially when ur love interest morphed herself as you was killed by the monsters. sob sob.

other rpgs currently on my list include:-
dragon quest monsters
dragon quest v
disgaea ds
fire emblem - shadow dragon
blue dragon plus
chrono trigger ds
final fantasy xii - revenant wings
final fantasy christal chronicles
final fantasy tactics a2
suikoden tierkreis

do i really have time to play them all? not really. the thing with rpgs is u shud really concentrate on finishing one before starting on the other. but then again if the story is not engaging enough i tend to just switch to another rpg. but not really leaving the game entirely. i just have it on standby just in case.

er what is the point of all this again? hmm entah.

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…
