... the heat is on ...

last night, as I lay in bed, I caught a whiff of a weird smell ...

... warm and metallic...

took me a while to figure it out....

... then it hit me ...

>>> The heat had turned itself on <<<

yeah, the temperature dropped yesterday, overnight of about 45F! I'd finally closed the windows... it's great to have winds blowing in so you get a change of air in the apartment, but it's totally another when you start to feel like you're feezing your buns (or in my case, my feet) off! I guess that was enough "fresh air" around to activate the thermostat.

today woke up around 10am ... coooollllllldddddddddd :p

it's nice and sunny outside, though: I think the weatherperson termed it as "brisk". May bundle up and go outside - make a trip to the library perhaps - just to feel the sun on my face.

on another note: tonight is the season premiere of SMALLVILLE. Last season ended quite dramatically, we'll have to see where tonight picks up. And like I mentioned earlier, "Spike" will be joining the cast this season, so I definitely want to see that happen.

tomorrow I head down to St Louis again. So long the weather holds up (cold is fine, just don't friggin rain the whole bloody day like last time!) we'll be meeting up with CB and go exploring the city zoo on Saturday. I'm not really a zoo person, not that keen on animals in captivity, but hey, it's free admittance, and it's pretty close to where we are staying, and did I mentino it's free? :p

okay, time to bring out the home exercise tape and warm myself up via billy blanks or jane fonda or cindy crawford. fun.

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…
