Power dressing: taking it to the next level!

I've never bothered too much with the whole power-dressing concept...

My jackets were usually too big/long on me... what do you expect when so many of the clothes found off the rack seemed to be made for anorexics??!! ... tall(er) anorexics!

I'd usually be found with a long-sleeved blouse and pants (later, it became looser blouses/shirts that I could wear without tucking in, aaaaah, so easy to cover an expanded waistline, teeehee!).

What brought this on? This Yahoo!News article HERE, about someone who unknowingly took the "power dressing" concept to a totally NEW level!

This got me thinking... I'm the kind of person who builds up a charge quite easily (have ALREADY been zapping myself when getting out of the car, and when using other metal doors, I suppose the air's getting drier and drier already... grrrrr!!!)... so I gotta find out what exactly he was wearing (what BRAND! what material! etc..) to make sure I don't end up making the news for a similar incident!

Of course, that's subject to me getting back to work in the first place.. and whenever that does happen, I probably wanna be at some mom-and-pop type small business that doesn't require business suits... but that's a different story, for another time :D

Have a good weekend!


  1. what an incredible story...Something you'd expect to read on annova...sheeeze...

  2. hmmm, I'm not familiar with "annova" , is that like "believe it or not" or "unexplained mysteries" kinda thing?

    Prateek: kewl, thanx for stopping by! (wrt meat Loaf: true, very long songs, but the "tale" told is great.. of course, that's more thanx to Jim Steinman than Meat himself :p )

    Gibson: tell me about it... I think one of the best ways to approach life is to believe that anything is possible... so incidents like this just reaffirm that view, teehee! :)

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…
