sunday sundayyyyyy

I lied.

I may have gotten off the net just before midnight, but didn't head straight to bed... I switched on the tv just to kinda wind down: and stumbled upon Star Trek: Enterprise! And it was the first episode ever (Broken Bow Part 1) too! So I just *had* to watch it, and make a mental note to program the VCR to tape that hour between 12mn - 1am on channel 10 from now on *grin!*

In my previous life, when I was using iMesh and hanging out at my beloved Coffee Bean which at that time was eqipped with a high speed wireless internet connection, I had managed to download lots of ST:E Season 2 and some of Season 3. And when I got here last year, I was glad to know Kosh was following the series, so I managed to watch its final season too.

I'm a Star Trek fan, but not fan enough to just go out and buy the series DVD just to watch episodes I'd missed (unlike Babylon 5, for example). So now that Channel 10 is playing reruns from the very beginning, I have the chance to watch it from the beginning! ... And we all know that the beginning is "a very good place to start" (Thanks, Maria, of Sound of Music fame!)

My procrastination skills are working as well as ever: reasons not to go out to the gym today include the fact that the temperatures for today will hover just around the freezing/melting point, so a walk anywhere is going to be wet, slushy and dirty with very high chances of getting splashed by cars running through dirty puddles of melted snow... teeheee!

I may just work out indoors here instead of braving the outdoor slush... need to up my metabolism a bit, feeling kinda sluggish no thanx to the friggin cold I've been suffering from. bleeeeaaaaahhhh!

~~
Whoohoooo!! Kosh will be back today. It's a 6-7hr drive from Cleveland to Urbana... the only benefit is he'll "gain" an hour once he gets back into this state (or is it when he gets into Indiana? I never know WHERE the "pacific vs central time line" is!). He's already stated a craving for the bbq turkey leg from my fave bbq place, so chances are we're having turkey tonight! yummy!!

And to day is my MOL's bd - HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!
MOL, u ask? Well, Kosh and I aren't married (yet!!); if we were, then she'd be my MIL.

Get it?

MOL = Mother-out-law.

teehee :-)

Aaaand on that note, tis the end of this post. If I'm bored (if?? haaaahahahahaha!) I'll get back online and work on those many draft posts that have been languishing on my dashboard since forever...

ciao!

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)

Background
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…
