Traffic Update

From April 4th to around August 8th 2005, sitemeter reported a total of 666 visits to this site (no need to ask *why* I would remember such a number, eh?) Then, from August 8th to Septmber 6th, let's see.. if I do the math right, it's 1311 - 666 = 645!

wow... the same amount of visits that I got over the past 4+ months, I got in the span of just about ONE month, thanx to Little Neo :-)

I really like that I've discovered lots of new sites to visit (many of which are listed in the blogroll, in my sidebar), and it's great to know that others are also checking out this blog regularly.

Here's some graphical illustration of the change in traffic:

Image #1: Visits to blog, 20th July - 19th August 2005... TWO things that jump out at ya: the average of maybe 5 visits a day which skyrockets after August 8th... and the two spikes...

so... what's the deal with those spikes??? Maybe a snapshot of the traffic a bit further on will shed some light... so here's Image #2: August 2nd - 1st Sept 2005

... ugh... I immediately see a downward trend in those spikes, so overall I'm slowly getting fewer visits...

... and the spikes? Many people take time off from surfing during the weekends, is my guess :-)

but what the hey, *i* think it's cool to see the increase in traffic, even if it's a piddling amount compared to famous sites :-)


aaaaanyway... will be catching up with blogging while I can... will be leaving for MEAT LOAF IN CONCERT IN CLEVELAND either tomorrow afternoon or the next morning... oh my, I can hardly believe it... by this time Thursday night, I'll be yeling myself hoarse watching the big man himself!!! Whoooohooooo!!!!!


  1. Know what you're talking about.. my traffic increased drastical after being put on the LittleNeo board. I think it's both good and bad. A lot of them just pops by for a few seconds.. not to read, but to collect points... others finds you're blog very interesting and take the time to come back again.. and also sometimes blogroll you. I found 'Life after Work' through Neo and I'm happy for that, because I find the entries interesting to read.

    Have a nice weekend/Cess

  2. Good choice of concert. By now, you are "SHOUTING ALONG!"
    ps: You can count on me to be somewhere in amongst the "green peaks"

  3. hi sophie cecile,
    yeah, many of my "hits" seem to have a visit time of "0:00", I attribute most of it to web-bots crawling all over the net... Little Neo seems to have fixed the problem of multiple visits to one site - yahoo! :-)

    mensa-b: thanx for your continued presence in my green peaks :-D I appreciate your enthusiasm and comments :-)

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…
