sharing is caring..

i was watching house the other day. the episode where 'dr sara tancredi' fresh after losing michael scofield in prison break was having some medical problems. fuck if i can be bothered to cite what it was la kan. the interesting bit to note was that the patient was in an open marriage. whats that? is it like open university? well it seems that in an open marriage u get to be married to one partner but then u can sleep with whomever u want. taub thought the idea was cool and told his wife. he had a history of cheating on her. with the whole concept of open marriage, at least he won't have to lie.

the wife was hesitant but then after contemplating for a bit she reluctantly agreed. but as u would expect, at the last minute she changed her mind.

the episode ended with taub following the girl to her car after they kissed and she asked him if he wanted to go somewhere.

of course the story has its twists and turns of sorts but the whole idea of open marriage ni got me thinking. can't u be satisfied with just the one? the concept in itself won't work when u got religion and cultural factors coming into play but regardless, people sleep around and cheat regardless of race or religion. its like built in our genes. the desire to cheat. to want more than what we're supposed to have. but some are better at controlling their desires than others i guess. some kahwin 4. some cheat selagi tak jatuh macam tupai melompat.

if and this is a big if. if letting ur partner dip his stick into someone else's engine will help u save ur marriage, would u let him? what about jealousy. what other people might say if they found out. what about all the complication that can and will definitely arise?

all this from watching house? and they say its all medical melodrama eh?

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…
