Don't make it too easy..

There was a major disruption on the kelana jaya lrt line yesterday. Got delayed for quite a bit. Told the senorita that i was going to be late because of work, it turns out i was made even more late because of the lrt. Dude, i love u and all but sometimes u just like to have delays at the most inoppurtunate moments. Is that even a word? Entah.

Anyways, whilst i was waiting for the train, i asked this chatty mak cik what was going on. She explained quite laboriously on how the trains were delayed, how u need to change trains at kampung baru and change again at pasar seni. How u need to keep ur ears open for the onboard announcements coz trains were not going the full trip but rather a taxi'ing service was scheduled for kampung baru to pasar seni.

What the fuck. As i'm writing this, the train is stalled for yet another unscheduled delay. WHAT THE FUCK.

But that's public transport for ya. Or rather that's Malaysian public transport for ya. Because there's only one service provider, all delays and cock-ups get magnified la kan. I'm digressing.

Anyways, in the lrt yesterday, i believe it was just after pasar seni. This girl walked in and stood in front of me. I notice she was wearing her company tag and u could clearly read out her name, department and company name from the tag. Mebbe she didn't mean to do it la kan. But it got me thinking. How much info can one gather out of someone's real name and company like that.

I did a quick googling. And lo and behold, just from the name, i manage to get her office number, her designation and some other details. Granted it would depend on ur individual online footprint but that's a bit scary to think that it's not that difficult for people to find out about u from just googling ur name.

If u don't like that kinda attention don't make it easy for people la kan. My company pass doesn't have my full name so that's okay. Plus i seriously doubt if anyone would be interested to google me out pun.

That got me wondering, what is my online footprint? What sorta information have i been sharing to the world. Does anyone give a flying f...??

Train service will return to normal in 1 hour time?? What the fuck!!!!!!!

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…
