Things will never be the same again..

Let's see..

I don't remember the last time the senorita and I has watched a movie together.

Our last outing together just the two of us was also another vague memory. It was at a company annual dinner where we tried leaving little jj with her grandma. It lasted for a couple of hours before the senorita had to rush home coz grandma was at her wits end trying to figure out why lil jj wouldn't stop crying.

Our traditional chili's birthday treat was also off the menu.

No more dating dating together gether.

No more, bunch of other stuff too.

Boo hoo.

Thing is I've kinda known all along that life will never be the same again when we found out that lil jj was coming. I did have some practice with tlm. But a baby would be more demanding than a grown little boy.

The first few years are very important and you need to ensure that you know your priorities. It would be great if you can call upon help where possible but I guess when push comes to shove, u need to be able to make the decisions that matter.

When you're single, ur used to living your life a certain way. When your married, ur lifestyle evolves. And when u have kids, ur life is over. Hehe. Just kidding. Ur life as you know it IS over.

That doesn't mean that life has to suck. It can be frustrating at times but the quicker you stop fighting it, the quicker it will be for you to adjust to your new life.

We found that since lil jj would require our utmost attention most of the time, we would appreciate the time that we do get to spend together. Like now for example, with the kids all sleeping, we're spending some quality time updating the blog and Facebook. Ooh and me catching up with the wrestling on telly.

When we do go out we pretty much tailor our activities to a more family oriented affair. Tlm and I would be the designated dancing clown monkeys for lil jj while the senorita would make sure everything else is in order.

Sure for now, romantic dinners are out of the question but its nothing to worry about. The good thing about kids is eventually they do grow up. So a little patience will go along way.

I'm not saying that it is easy. It's not. But I tell ya the rewards are well worth it.

That look lil jj gives when she responds to ur 'good morning good morning sayang' song.

That little laugh which we still haven't figured out the reasons for.

The adorable way she would climb up the stairs.

The way she ambles towards you when you open the door after a hard days work.

All those precious moments, I wouldn't trade for anything in the world.

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…
