apabila singapura dilanggar todak..

last week i went to singapore for a couple of days because the company had an annual reception which i was told to go to. took the opportunity to meet some of our counterparts to compare processes and what not. don't really wanna dwell on that.

had a taste of some local delicacies. sup tulang. murtabak singapore. but didn't get the chance to really take my own sweet time for sightseeing and stuff.

they managed to get free broadband bundled with the hotel rates so i got to skype the senorita, little jj and tlm at home that night before my flight back. funny how internet is still considered a premium at an already premium hotel? do they really make money out of the broadband charges? why can some quirky bed and breakfast type establishment in the city of paris can afford to give you free wifi but then a 6 or seven star hotel still charges u an arm and a leg to access the net? something must not be right somewhere.

i got back home on saturday and was just flat out wasted until later that night. must be all that hosting duties i pulled at the reception. lenguh gak senyum and salam salam. although one of the recommendations to minimize the spread of contagious disease is to limit physical contact, u can't really avoid it at times. just take the necessary precautions la kot.

we went to digital mall on sunday to look for a bluetooth keyboard compatible with the senorita's phone to facilitate her doing her work. there was a blackout at the apartment and she couldn't do work. now barring me getting her a laptop and by laptop i mean a macbook, she has to make the necessary adjustments la with a keyboard aje. just for typing on the go la kan. it turns out we couldn't find it at digital mall. seriously. all that tech and no bluetooth keyboard. hmm one dude commented that its not the 'in' thing now. dunno la about that. i did find a portable dvd writer for my netbook. matching lagi color hehe.

we then left for keramat. my sister's ana had her song HBKL on the preview list at era.fm so we were all voting for the song to be number one. since if a song gets to number one untill the end of the week it will be bumped to the proper charts. so we had ana's tech brigade racking up votes and telling all our friends to do the same. if u wanna listen to the song, u can watch this remixed version with little jj doing her dance to the tune here. now the song is at number one. hehe i think my brother asyiq is working hard to try and maintain it. go la have a look if ya'll don't have anything to do. 

i ended up buying the bluetooth keyboard on ebay. it will be a few days jugak la kan for it to be delivered. banyak gak beli barang from ebay. 

lil jj was being extremely playful yesterday. i put it down to the fact that i had shaven off my beard and mustache and she feels weird. but the senorita said that lil jj has been playful the last 2 or 3 days already. this morning, she woke up early and as i was getting ready for work, she was all smiles and cheery. climbed over the senorita and started to play with the senorita's phone. the other day she managed to unlock the keypad. smart budak ni. trust me on this. i have a feeling that she will be a techie like me (or the senorita - since she is MORE techier than me. she did her whole xml blog template editing on her own - which till now i could never do)

interestingly, the english premier league is about to start.. wei hei.. but those damn folks at astro has decided to raise the subscription rates for the sports package. an extra 10 bucks per month. granted its not really that much but for someone who just watch footie, paying extra for golf and other unrelated sports event is just ridiculous. what to do? i think it's okay if u support man u or liverpool. coz their games are always shown at ur local mamak and what not. and if there's a clash between an arsenal game and man u or liverpool or even chelsea, the mamak owners would gladly pick the latter. so ur kinda screwed la. so whatcha gonna do? bayor je laa kot. 

i have a feeling that this year will be a fruitful one la for the gunners. hehe famous last words.

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…
