Why? Because i want to use this blog as an inspiration and also as a motivation for me to do my work well.
How? i really have no ideas, but basically i will just write whatever i do pertaining to what i need to do, and hopefully i can monitor the trend chart.
what? the work i need to do is rather life and death, at least to me. I need to have at least 3 papers this year, and i need to complete at least one by june. I have exactly five months to complete a single paper.
Having this blog will, firstly as a journal that tells my progress and secondly as a rough paper so that whenever i have any ideas i would just write something in it, using my blackberry so that i would not forget about it. Thirdly, to satisfy my needs to write without making me suffocated with the limitation i have created in the other blog.
oke. here for the best. cherios

A month ago, I was in Perlis.
Emm, for the first time.
It took me around 9 hours to get there, and 10 minutes to visit the whole state, which is as large as Bangsar shopping complex. Well, that would be too much of an exaggeration isn’t it.
Oke Two Bangsar Shopping complexes!
Literally, if you move very fast from one end to another, you would not finish saying Perlis Indera Kayangan, you would probably stop at kaya.
But yes, It took us 8 hours to go there, after we missed a turn in Bidor, (then we missed a few other turns as well, let say around 6 turns and, the distance between the turn I should make, and the turn I actually made was around, let say 150 KM.
Hik, on the way to Perlis, I am supposed to pick up a friend in Lumut, but I was too busy looking for the signage to lumut, I forgot there isn’t any. So instead of taking the Bidor Intersection, we went all the way up to Taiping, and then make a turn to Lumut.
So that explains the extra 4 hours.
It was a fucking waste of time and money, but at least I know places now. Places I never know existed such as Changkat Jering, Terong and whatnot.
But, I was in Perlis, for the very first time. I meet Abun there.
Thank god I did not drive, and thank god the driver did not know that we were supposed to turn in Bidor to get to Lumut.
All he said was “rasanya dulu gih lumut 3 jam dah sampai, ni kenapa tak sampai-sampai lagi ek”
I was there for a Misi Akademik. Misi Akademik is just one way to send lecturers for free vacation, all expenses paid and got paid extra allowance for it just to meet some SPM leavers and tell them why they should apply our university and not somewhere else.
Of course we don't lie, but we exaggerate every facts.
If you learn marketing, you would understand.
Anyway, Adi and Rosdin, my colleague was there too, but they took the plane, instead. I wanted to drive (which I regret the whole journey right after we reached Alor Star, and all the way back to Shah Alam)
Perlis is so colourful. Everything is very colourful there. When you were in the town, you feel like you are in a very enormous open air kindergarten.
The people, the food, the culture, I mean everything, including the building.
colourful people, colourful culture
I met Sweet Abun there.He works in the immigration department there. So he took Rosdin and Adi to Hatyai, while I have to stay in the Hotel because the driver complaint that he was tired. So I cannot possibly leave him in the hotel alone.
It is so unfair, how come he can be sicked and tired at that moment, when he only droves from KL to Taiping to Lumut to Kangar to Penang to Kangar to Alor Star to kangar and back to lumut to Shah Alam.
Huh... some people are so ungrateful.
I love the food in Perlis, everything taste so delicious. Probably because the Siamese influence in cooking to the local food accentuate the taste of food there. Every restaurant that sells lunch we went to, prepared an excellent arrays of food.
For a great lunch, I recommend this café under a very tiny hotel which I’ve forgotten the name of the hotel. But the hotel and the restaurant are situated just on the left side of the Sri Garden Hotel.
Oke that is my Perlis story.
p/s: i give myself 10 days, and after that i would most probably just go gaga.

I have been tagged a few times, by fellow bloggers, and as promised I will try to answer it one by one, although I am not really sure, anyone would even bother to read it. But somehow, for lazy people like me, a tagged is a good way to write something in a blog, because you don’t have to think so much and force yourself to be creative to write anything for the survival of your blog.
So this is a tag by mr. panzer, and here goes.
Tag: Complete the sentence
My idea of going on a date would be
doing nothing, not even trying to find anything to talk just to impress our date that we know so much of anything, although knowing so much of anything really shows that we don’t know much of anything. Just sit there and stares at each other and shares drink while looking around to look for conversation piece and remind how everything look and resemble our date or the relation such as “the stars are so bright like your eyes” or “your chicken look so nice and succulent and juicy just like your lips” (so unromantic, yes I know) and work out the date until we finally come to the part where we said “my love to you is as much as the sand in gold coast Australia” or “I hate you because you are as bad as the Israelis taking advantages of the Palestinians”, which I prefer the latter than the former.
a good smack wallop with the buckle of the my fathers belt, on the eve of hari raya, although he did not intend to do it, but he was at rage and too mad at that time and tend to forget and somehow hold the other end of the belt, and was he surprised to see me cried my lungs out and twirl on the floor. Although the belt did not even touch my body, but you know how children can be such a drama queen.
And I got that punishment for a very minute offense, which most children would do. I mean, everyone has done it, it’s not unusual to poke flaming firecracker (the read one, with lots of smoke) to your sister’s butt because you think it would be funny, isn’t it.
Oh my father have no sense of humour at all.
It was funny at that time especially when I saw what big hole it made to my sister’s baju kurung at that time. We still talk about it until now, after almost 25 years.
My most extravagant splurge in the last six months is…
I bought a damn expensive car (at least with my salary, it is expensive), just because it look nice, although everyone told me not to do so (buying Korean car) and to tell you the truth I am not very sure I should because i am not really capable of doing it right now, and I am not really into korean car, and I am leaving the country soon for few years, but I bought it anyway because it look nice.
Then I bought a Gucci passport holder, for whatever reason I don’t know (which I used it as a wallet instead)
I bought a laptop, and last but not least I bought a Lacoste shoes which I don’t know when to use since I love more wearing the La Primavera sandals (which really look more like a RM10 slippers, although it does not cost RM10 at all) everywhere I go.
Nope, I don’t use credit card. I stop using it almost 2 years now.
And bloody proud of it.
If I can have a super-ability, I'd want to have...
The ability to read mind, although I don’t really care what people think of me (not really) but most importantly I want to know what other people think of someone else. For example if I am with B and C, I want to be able to read B’s mind so I know what he think of C (yes, so kepochi) and vice versa.
Emm, somehow I think, I have this ability already, especially after 7 years of learning economics in the university, we learn a lot on making assumption, assuming, make prediction and making false accusation.
No one, I believe you chart your own destiny and you need no one to motivate and tell you what to do, because god gives you brain to think for yourself.
I have climbed the highest mountain on earth and found the wisest man in the entire galaxy. And I can ask him only one question. I am going to ask him...
That is the person that have change my life, who teaches me well and now I am a better person (hahahahah, uwekkkkkkkkk)

Do we need another airport, when there are only two passenger aircraft provider?
We don’t know, but what we do know is, the government should not get involve when a duopolistic economy or when oligopolistic enterprise is having a strategy war. They will only disturb the equilibrium, thus affecting the economy due to enormous dead weight lost to the economy and society making the economy less productive, thus effecting social profit (environment, pollution, stabilize future price bla bla bla whatever whatever) and the profit of both companies as well.
The best thing is just to let those two industry play with their game, until both or one of the companies no longer have strategy to take that will benefit their organization.
Since the government have spent so much on the infrastructure using tax of the people, its best that they let them form a cartel and stop from competing with each others because they are only worsening the situation and take the two ceo’s head and knock both head to wall, and say…
Stop fucking competing with each other and start sharing will ya!!!
Let them prosper and actually makes profit for the betterment of the people in the long run.
We cannot develop correctly if the government keep on interfering wrongly at the right time.
Mr. Advisor, please read your economics textbook, will ya.

First, is about the development done by the new government in my state. There isn’t any, or I can’t see any big radical changes they promised before the election. All the projects and programs they are doing right now are the programs initiated by the previous government.
I think they should be more creative and coming out with breakthrough and revolutionary changes and think of development rather than staying safe with incremental and muddling through the old establishment's program. After all that is the reason why people choose them in the first place.
They want change!
Its been a while since the election, and nothing big ever happen really. Most people would say, its not fair because they are new and must give them ample time to adjust and comes out with strong state economic policy. However one should remember, they are walking into the office on a red carpet, and every infrastructures and facilities are being shoved in their face, unlike those previous one who need to develop theirs from scratches.
Not saying the old one is better, but the new one seems rather… well, the same.
But one thing I see is all the states assembly men are getting a bloody expensive plush exciting Toyota Camry.
For what ever fucking hell they do that?
And why do you need a toyota camry?
Are they getting more creative, vigor and productive driving a camry?
You tell me.
Secondly, I would want to say something about Obama, and we are all very happy looking at him, and thought what a wonderful man he is, and how he could be the new savior of world civilization and repair all the nonsense made by Bush.
One thing I would like to remind everyone, being the first black president, obama would have to be a very populist type of leaders and he would be restricted with lots of tensions and pressure from his lobbyist, political watch dog and also from his shadow cabinet i.e the republican.
And being a Christian and being born by a muslim parents and brought up in a muslim country, Obama cannot be showing too much sympathy to the muslim because he would be seen as supporting the muslim community, read : terrorist (in the eyes of the mat salleh), and being a non muslim himself, he should not be to sympathize with muslim at all, and that add the square roots to all the necessary evil (read: war and economics restriction, not the religion. all religion teaches about good deed)
It is just a simple mathematics and logic.
He might not agree with war, unlike his predecessor, but to keep the police state and world hero status of America and the Americans, he somehow need to exert some level of force to the muslim, read: terrorist country.
Justto reminds everyone, remember this picture.
Always remember this picture.
Oh by the way, i bought 2 British India's shirts that was earlier priced at RM400 something and RM500 something each, then it was discounted to 200 something and then it is discounted with another 70 percent of the discounted price.
that is a lot of discount i tell you.
Yes, to show that the price of the shirt is very expensive they did not take out the previous price tag, instead they stick new one on top, and another one on top of it. So with some cautious handwork, we can work our way to the first layer stickers, and quickly snatched it from the rack thinking you are getting a good bargain, but instead you are actually buying a 3 year old consignment shirt and the tailor person tailoring the shirt in vietnam, or china or, india might have passed away few years ago.
But you don't really care about it since you think its
But the quality of the shirt is good and the material is so nice when it touches to body, you feel so comfortable and sexy and because its British India and its supposed to be very expensive, you kinda have this feeling that you suddenly turn very handsome and dashing wearing it, like a frog changing to a prince kinda feeling, but actually you don't, instead you still look like a toad. Branded clothes have aura of its own, and it makes the wearer feel more confident.
So basically i bought a RM900 over pricccccedzzzeedd shirt for only a fraction of the price.
I dont really like it though. I like the other one, but they dont give discount to those shirt that look nice. They are not stupid, that is why they can afford to stick an outrageous price tag and still managed to sell lousy cotton shirt.
But, i still bought it, because why..
Because its British India!!!
So, what are you waiting for? Sales in British India, hurry up be a kiasu and go and buy unwanted things.
