Happy birthday bb..

you know ur relationship has gone up another level when u are comfortable to share with ur other half what ur going to get her for her birthday and she would still get excited when she finally receive the item.
so the magic mouse that i ordered arrived today. one thing i love about Apple products is they really go to town on their whole minimalist cool agenda. i will probably do a full review on the senorita's review blog thingy later.

happy 24th birthday baby. its funny how by the end of the day, the senorita was celebrating her 17th birthday. she has really nice friends eh.

anyways, i took the monday off specifically for the occasion. heck, i even put it on the "reasons for taking leave" column as "wife's birthday", which was approved with no questions asked. the plan was to have dinner at our favourite place and enjoy their free dessert. but before that we had a ploy to bring lil jj to the kiddy gym first, get her all excited and tired so that when dinner time came, she would have gone to sleep and everyone can have dinner together. there was however a slight defect to what seemed to be a perfect plan.

we left the condo around 4:30, got to 1utama just before 5 and as our luck would have it, we got a nice parking spot just near the escalator entrance. luck of the birthday girl kot. we made our way to the kiddy gym, tlm and i were entertaining lil jj whilst the senorita caught up on some of her work. lil jj went nuts playing in the pool of balls and also the swing sets. they had this whole play area where kids got to climb and slide. it was all good fun. lil jj also had a go. of course with me right behind her as she climbed up. there were some other older kids who of course didn't really pay enough attention to lil toddlers mucking about. i was however very impressed with lil jj's determination in wanting to climb up the foam padded semi steep incline - should take some pictures the next time eh.

a couple of hours later it was time for the senorita's birthday dinner. we were lucky coz we didn't have to wait long. got a nice table and promptly ordered our food. the whole chili's birthday tradition thingy started coz we wanted the free dessert. hehe. in the olden days, u could order from any of the dessert menu. nowadays ur just left with chocolate brownies and ice cream. hehe. malaysians and our "free is the best" mentality eh.


notice the cheeky monkey look..

dinner came and true enough the whole plan to get lil jj all tired failed. we got halfway through our meal when lil jj started to get restless. not even mommies delicious boobies can placate her. so i decided to get some air and bring lil jj on a walkabout. lil jj was all happy again walking her tiny shoes off the shopping complex. we got to this shoe store with parquet flooring and lil jj was immediately attracted. at first i thought it was the shoes - like mommy like daughter eh - but then i realised that it was the wooden flooring and the sound her shoes make when she walked over it that got her all excited. i let her walk for a bit. she seemed not to care when i said bye bye lil jj. papa is going. nope she was content staying at the shoe store.


cheeky monkey enter frame

when i finally had to bring her out - cue the sirens. she arched her body protesting. macam-macam anak perempuan saya ni. hehe.

we finished dinner off with the staff of chili's 1utama singing happy birthday for the senorita. yeay.


happy birthday bb..

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…
