mixed bag of nothings..

i have a funny feeling that lee dewyze will win american idol. but i'm sure america will probably prove me wrong and kick him out next week. leaving casey james a clear shot at a one miss bowersox. and we probably can guess la who would win that shoot out. yesterday whilst watching the show, they were having the thomas cup on the other channel. i wonder how many were watching the idols and not the thomas cup. malaysia is in the semi's after dispatching denmark 3-2. china awaits on what potentially could be a replay of 92. where we beat them on the way to winning the thomas cup. something to look forward to maybe? i really wanna get my hopes up. i do. sigh.

lil jj has been surprising everyone with adding more and more to her growing vocab. she's been going through the color counting book that we bought her the other day and the senorita has been teaching her some new words. she could identify cup cakes, horse, pig (pigh), onions amongst others. its amazing how she takes to reading so readily. yes she does have her toys, but she always goes back to her books. there's this basket my boss got as a hamper for raya and we've turned it into lil jj's book trove. every time we tidied up and put all the books away, she would go and pick the books and get me or the senorita to read with her. i even tried to temp her with the ps3. that didn't work. she seem to not be interested that much with the ps3.

we can still distract her with games on my phone and the ds. but her favorites are still those books. hopefully it's something that'll stick with her when she grows older. plus u can get tax rebates when u buy books. we've been buying books as gifts for the past two years. :)

with the footie season over, the championship is heading to stamford bridge. man u kept at it till the final day of the season but it was too little too late. thrashing wigan 8-0, there was no denying that chelsea were the worthy winners. arsenal's season ended with a whimper. going out of the champions league against barca proved to be the start of a downward spiral that saw us drop points, lose against the spuds and eventually dropped out of the title race. when was the last time we tasted glory? 5 years eh. i guess you could pin it down to the untimely injuries and the lack of cover. i was just glad the season is over. now, we can expect a whole bunch of silly transfer rumours for players to be linked with the arsenal. yeah. fun.

at least there's the prospect of the world cup coming up in june. i'll be rooting for the oranje. been supporting them since 98. i just love how the dutch play their game. but i don't fancy rvp turning out for the dutch in some meaningless friendly only to get his ankles mangled from a rash challenge. this year could be very interesting. spain were the favourites but injuries to key players can quickly turn things upside down. england is in there somewhere. the argies, brazilians and don't forget the african representatives.

but enuff about footie. i might do a repeat of 06 where i pasted michael ballack's picture everytime i do a footie entry just to placate the senorita. dunno what la her thing with michael ballack ni. hehe.

speaking of which, the best thing that a guy can hope for to greet him after a hard days work, apart from that lovely smile and giggle of his little girl, or the wise cracking antics of his little boy, the best thing that a guy can hope for would be the sight of his loving wife all spruced up and sexy welcoming him to her arms. :*

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…
