Merry New Year!


Now, lets see. Oh, the year-end is here again, hooray.

I tried to think of something noteworthy that ever took place this year but my mind keeps telling me to continue with the Bubbles game. That pretty much sums up my year. Dull.

From a OKU-point of view, apart from one stupid politician shooting his mouth vomiting turd, not all things bad. We’ve had Persons With Disability Bill 2007 passed and later on Datuk Senator Dr Ismail Md Salleh, who is visually-impaired, was appointed to the Dewan Negara as representative for the whole disabled community. Excellente.

So anyway, this is the time of the year when we get to hear people pledges on all things silly for the coming year ahead.

You get things like, slackers wishing to be a better employee which means it requires him to lick harder. Politician makes a sudden appearance and promise to look into grouses faced by the people who elected him…some 4 years ago and married men vows to be a better husband by…taking a new wife. All the ridiculous shit.

I don’t know about myself mann. But looking back, I’m not sure if I have achieved anything. The resolution I made at the end of December last year was exactly what I had hoped for since previous years back. Like any other idiots, resolutions are made only because someone might ask you. And by having your answer prepared, you’d look clever than you actually are. Screw that maannn.

This time around, I’m switching to a negative mode. I’m turning into a doubting Thomas and skeptical of every single thing that’s coming my way. Yea, sounds good.

The condo management for example. I was overjoyed and excited when they first promised to make my place more wheelchair-accessible but it turns out as mere talk. Numerous attempts have been made to get them start the minor construction work but weeks took months, and months took years just to get 2 simple lousy ramps to be built. All the follow-ups have been futile, falling on deaf ears. And this was after a promise they made more than 2 years ago. I mean, whaddaf?

Quarreling with them is like arguing to a lamp post. Even a lamp post could shed some light. So the next time they come to me and promises the same old shit, I’m gonna shrug it off as mere lies. Until of course, the two bloody ramps are completely constructed.

So I guess that would be my wish for 2008. No point fighting for the OKU rights when your own home is not disabled-friendly. Personally, the battle begins from right at the front door.


Here’s wishing you all a very prosperous 2008. I have not a clue of what’s in store but I say just bring it on.

Happy New Year to you and famlily. May ALLAH bless you and may the members of the condo management grow dicks on their forehead.

El,

Hey thanks sis! Merry merry new year to you and Jeff and little Luke too. May you guys stay the healthiest for this coming year, insyaAllah.

Cikgu nazir, sir!

Another gem from you…hehehe…let them get the job done first then they can grow 5 extra testicles for all I care.

Thanks cikgu. Have a wonderful 2008, you and the rest of the family, insyaAllah.

Bro,
Happy New Year! One of the highlights of 2007, for me, is to meet you in blogosphere. An honour, really. Maybe, in 2008, we'll meet in dunia nyata. InsyaAllah. Bukannya jauh pun.
Party On, brother!

Rita Ho said...

Kerp ... Like you, no resolutions at my end. I consider them useless reminders of objectives/tasks that don't really matter. Otherwise why wait for a new year to start?

Happy New Year to you and your family! I hope 2008 continue to bring all of you excellent health, success in everything you do and everyday happiness.

BTW, you look good in marron. :)

Kerp (Ph.D) said...

Bg mior,

Whoa…like-wise bro. never thought I’d get to know someone like you, the Man of the house. Don’t worry bg Mior, insyaAllah one sweet day we’ll do a get-together, it doesn’t have to be a big affair, over some teh tarik wouls mean a lot already, at least to me. happy new year!

Aunty Rita,

Yea, resolution normally ends up down the drain before even you get it into 1st gear into the new year. If changes needs to be done, never wait as it could prove to be costly.

Here’s wishing you too, and dear hub a wonderful 2008. it was real pleasant knowing you!

anfield devotee said...

I fer one can say I actually accomplished some changes. Although forced upon me by poor health, I managed to severely cut down on me tobacco & booze intake to nary a puff/drop. Fooking sad!

So for 2008 I hope to be back to me MONSTROUS FOOKING SELF BY DRINKING MORE!!! As classic skatecore hoodlums, Gang Green once sang, "Older . . . Budweiser"!

And fer those of you going out to party tonite, don't forget the classic adage "Beer - helping ugly people get laid since the 1800s!" So please be careful, eh . . .

ps: Ok, I'll concede smoking is a terrible fooking habit & will try to quit.

Pi Bani said...

Happy new year Kerp. Be a good boy and jangan nakal-nakal ok? :)

cakapaje said...

Salam bro,

Salam Tahun 2008! Ingat janji kat Cikgu ye...er, ada ke? :)

Kerp (Ph.D) said...

Bala,

That’s exactly my hope for you, brother. for 2008, I sure hope you to get better and whenever we meet, nothing beats than meeting this Bala fella THE REAL DEAL.

Good advice from you btw…hehehe….

Oh, I’ve been cutting down on my cigarette intake too but please, quit contemplating about quitting, bala. I mean, can you sit through out a game without a puff? That’s silly man…

Happy new year to you and missus!


Kak Pi,

Happy New year to you too!

Hey, I’ve always behaved….hehehe…but admittedly, there are still some huge space for improvement…haha…


Doc,

Selamat tahun baru to you and missus and hafiz too pak doc.

I have to say having to know you was one of the highlights in 2007. I wanted to mention every single name here but that would be a lot and risk having a name or 2 missed.

Lets make it a point to meet up. We have 12 more months to plan on something. Always keep us informed whenever you’re in KL doc.

Merry new year!

Bailey said...

Kerp (Ph.D) said...

Salam shah,

Yes, both of us, our respective promises to cikgu. But after a brief conversation we had earlier today, I can smell some nasi minyak on your side. I wonder who the mysterious blogger anyway…hmmm…

Salam tahun baru 2008, brother!

Bailey,

You too, have a great and prosperous new year, sister. Don’t you wanna meet us all bloggers? Hehe…we should you know. Plenty of time ahead, no rushing tho.

Bailey said...

Daphne Ling said...

MERRY NEW YEAR! May the ramps miraculously appear in 2008.

*Hmmm..lessee whoz I gotta beat up for thiz*

PrincessJournals said...

Wishing you a very merry, properous and wonderful new year!

Daph,

Happy new year to you too D. all the best for the new semester! *hugs*

Yea man. Merry New Year. Check out Coming To America. Mr Murphy actually said that.

Looking forward to meet you too sir. Surely one of the coming MRTs. Any chance of you revealing the real peaches? Hehehehhe…

Farina,

You too, together with Mike, have a great and blessed 2008!

Aunty Maria,

IBU!

* ni mesti dtg from Kak Pi's blog ni..hehehe...

constant_drama said...

Dude!! Happy New Year!!!

Hey maybe in 2008 we can meet up? Who know? Not in Mid though coz the parking there sucks donkey balls.

Endless possibilities in 2008. *hugs*

Kerp (Ph.D) said...

CD,

hey sure, we sure can meet up, me, you and T. we'll plan on something. i beg to differ tho, Midvalley has the best parking spots, especially if you have the OKU sticker. hehehe...

wowww, so you're back from china huh? i thought you'd be spending new year's eve somewhere in shanghai or something. welcome back btw!

Rocky's Bru said...

Happy New Year, Kerp!

2-year wait for them ramps? You want us to picket in front of their office, you tell me, bro. Teach them a lesson and we'll video-clip the whole thing and distribute the discs free of charge, in parliament.

Just give the word. Preferably, after two plates of MRT.

Cheers, all.

Kerp (Ph.D) said...

hey rocks!

somebody suggested that the other day but i'll wait a little longer before taking it into serious consideration. the MIC and MCA fellas have promised to get this issue solved in no time. i take that before the GE, which i believe is just a sniff away.

thanks, and happy new year brother!

waterlily said...

Selamat Tahun Baru Kerp. Moga ada sinar baru untuk semua.

ps: Doc TA...betui ka nak buat pejumpaan ni...yahooo...

SELAMAT TAHUN BARU UNTUK SEMUA

kita tunggu tokasid kita naik KL then hopefully we'd get to plan on something perhaps over lunch or dinner. on HIM! kahkah...

A Voice said...

MaryKate said...

MERRY NEW YEAR to you Kerp, and it was wonderful meeting up with you and D. Am sure it wont be the last :) Good to know you both on blog and in person. May you have a fabulous 2008 :)

Mat Salo said...

Merry New Year too. Macam bro' A Voice cakap, better late than never, bro'...

Yes, the battle begins in our own backyard. One step at a time. Yup kalau ada picket kat management office I'd like to join bro' Rocky too. Haha.

Kerp (Ph.D) said...

anon honey,

happy new year to you too, sweet darlin'!

MsryKate,

I swear i didnt expect at all to meet you. it was a pleasant one nontheless. wishing you and family too, a prosperous and blessed 2008. here's to more and more of such meetings to come.

sankochan said...

Happy New Year~!!!!!!!!!

Hope you get that RAMP thing build. Call someone!!!

Like me... they didn't pay me for work since November!!! I told them I'm gonna complain to the labor Tribunal already!! TOOT PEOPLE!!!!!!!

Kerp (Ph.D) said...

Sandra Teh,

Happy new year to you too girl. Lets hope for the best for both. Get the ramps done and for you, get your hard-earned salary. Give your employer another month or so and if the problem continues, reveal the company’s name in your blog…hehehe…screw them, pay up!

MS bro,

Happy new year brother. as I said in the sms, I’m glad to have jumped into the blogging bandwagon or I will never get to know such great people like you and the rest. Personally that was one of the highs of last year.

No need to picketing first. I wanna see which politician to get their ass down here first.

Thanks, guys!
