additions to the "family"

If you take a look at the list of blogs and stuff over on the left sidebar, you may notice that the numbers there have increased quite a bit!

It's great timing: I was really jonesing for new good blogs to read, after havivng pretty much exhausted my current list. Happened to login to Technorati, just to see who had linked to me recently. And found that I now appeared in a page of Random Reading, which seems to be a personal blog directory of sorts.

Well, I took it as divine intervention! Or some sort of sign, lah!

I am going thru the links on that page (right now, am at "D"), and any blogs that seem worth revisiting, I add to my own blogroll list. So, for those who are stopping by wondering how and why I'm linking to ya: now u know! :-)

(that's how I came up with a selection of Malaysian bloggers to link to, too: from the MyCen directory)

So, if *you* are in a blog drought, and don't know where in the www to go, try out my new links, or head over to the Random Reading page and click away!



  1. Again....Thank you for linking me. :D

    BTW...Are you Malaysian or American? Just curious. ;-)

  2. LOL! I'm Malaysian, but half-Swiss, who's hopefully going to be living in the u.s. on a permanent basis in the near future :-) Hope that clears things up for ya *grin!*

  3. Clear as a crystal....But wait! Here's another one...Malay or Chinese? LOL!!!

    Sorry to ask,I also have Malaysian Chinese friends,and relatives who live in Johore. :D

  4. Ey, thanks for the link. :-) Have linked you up as well. :-)

  5. do you know that my friend found you through my link and from your link he found his favorite celebrity's blog (Afdlin Shauki). I suppose this is so called "we are blogging together" *+*

  6. snglguy: to be politically correct, I am Malay. But in reality, I consider myself Malaysian, and don't see myself as Malay. I may blog on that later :-)

    Ron: you're very welcome, and I hope you like what you read :-)

    new journey: oh cool, that is so great! Yes, one of those tiny yet fulfilling moments of a blogger's life! :D

  7. Oh btw...I've been reading your fave posts,especially the one about your memories of the Reader's Digest.

    Yep,they were an indispensible part of my youth too,my "bible" actually.That's where I got most of my education,hehehe.

    I still have copies dating back all the way from the mid 60's up to the mid 90's when I stopped my subscription.... Cheers :D

  8. Thanks for the link. I have reciprocated. Will check out those on your link list as I am always looking for new sources.

  9. mondo: great to see ya! and feel free to explore the links.

  10. I know exactly how you feel. Will link up to you too.

  11. oh my GOD you picked ME!!! I am so honored.

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…
