20050808#1: Malaysia Blogger Map

I have a bit of time to kill, so am gonna catch up with some blogs that have been in draft mode for some time. It's August 8th, 1025pm as I start this blogathon of sorts.

Happy reading!!

My first topic: The Malaysia Blogger Map

I think it's a great idea!

This is like a physical representation of let's say the MyCen directory, and much more appealing... This way I can choose to explore some Malaysian blogsites by location (i.e. Penang-based).

Pity the creator is limiting it to physical locations in Malaysia, as opposed to Malaysians all over the world, cos I don't think I'm eligible... after all, I may officially reside in Petaling Jaya, but I consider myself based in the U.S. at the moment. But heck, it's a start. Check out this link if you are interested in the more technical aspects of his quest to create the map on which to plot the Malaysian blogs:

For those who were wondering, I was pointed in this direction by a post by Adam. No I don't know this person, but this is one of the Malaysian blogs I bookmarked sometime during my web-crawling activities :p

btw, today i came across a similar service:'s Guestmap service! Your visitor can indicate where they are from on a map of the world! seems to have LOTS of other services too... aarrggghhh!!! it's sooooo tempting to put lots of these gizmos on my blog (like that daily cartoon service!), but that will start to B(L)OG down my page, I'm sure! boohooooo!
(ugh - finally got done with this at 10:52 pm! let's move on to the next topic, shall we?!)

Dear legitimate commenters: all comments are welcome! My sincere apologies for making you go through the word verification hurdle, tho.

Dear spammers: please don't bother... I'm just gonna delete any spam that squeaks through word verification anyway, so why not save us both the trouble, eh?

Noritta Samsudin: Case closed? WTF?

I was amazed to read that Datuk Mustapha Abdullah, the city police chief considers the Noritta Samsudin murder case closed. (Click here and here for some articles)

In July 2004, one En Hanif Basree Abd Rahman was acquitted and discharged by the court on the murder of Noritta. Of course, the months leading up to that ruling made for gross reading in the local newspapers… Early on I decided to just not read the papers, as it was obvious that the murder victim, who seems to have been a high-class callgirl, was the one being judged. I’m certain I did the right thing, for as time went by, more and more people started complaining about the level of detail being reported by the papers. Details about tears in the vagina, and age thereof seemed to be the focus of the court, rather than on the clients. Then again, from early on it was rumoured that many VIPs were among the victim’s “customers”, hence the blinkered focus on the victim rather than her clients. And the clients who…

BOH Seri Songket flavored teas

For many a year, boxes of BOH's Seri Songket flavored tea have served as handy buah tangans for relatives and friends in Switzerland and the USA, providing exotic teas in an exquisite bit of packaging. I'd not tasted any of these teas for myself, though, so this time around on my trip to Malaysia I made it a point to get me a few boxes of my own.

I picked three: Earl Grey with Tangerine; Passion Fruit; and Lime & Ginger; and have tasted two out of the three so far. According to Moomykin, the unlikely Lychee Rose combination is surprisingly good, so I'll grab that next time. Other flavors available in theory are Cinnamon; Clove & Cardamom; Mango; and Vanilla.

Review of the Seri Songket Passion Fruit flavored tea:
I've had this twice so far.

When you open the sachet, the smell/flavor is rather overpowering. But it all disappears when the teabag is steeped in hot water.

The first time, I used one bag to make 4 cups of tea. It seemed a touch watery, and tasted j…

It's been a while...

It's been so long.

Here's what's been going on. I had one kid, then another. Thing One / Nova was my first ever exposure to a kid. I'd never changed a diaper until he came along, and even then I deferred to the hubs or the NICU nurses before I forced myself to overcome that ?fear?.

He is my first. So I always wondered during tough times, was it just me? Or was it also him?

Turns out, it was us both.

He starts First Grade this August. He's currently being (re-)evaluated for an IEP (Individualised Education Plan). ADHD. ODD. ASD. SPD. The journey to these labels was a long one. And still ongoing because I don't think we have it quite right yet. But the labels help. I fought against getting labels. But now I seek them. Anything to help understand. Never in a million years would I have foreseen me medicating my kids. Yet here I am, seeking new meds, getting him a genetic test that should help identify which medications should help him, since the usual suspects see…
