Feb 22nd, 2006

I shudder at the significance of this date..

No, it's nothing to do with it being Thinking Day, i.e. the birthday of Lord & Lady Baden-Powell of Boy Scouts & Girl Guides fame... Now THAT was a waste of my time & life at school: the GG movement was just another society to join, and the only thing we did was organise a campfire every year which was our main way to meet boys. Spending the night at school was fun, but apart from that.. gee.. nothing significant ever happened...

But I digress... back to my shudder:

Feb 22nd is the day my sanity will start to be put to the test again.

I should be arriving in KL 7am that Wednesday.

Full-time exposure to dysfunction, here I come.

Somebody save me.

And on a related note: Many thanx to Samantha Burns who pointed me in the direction of this excellent product... It *so* resonates with me.. maybe if I get a matching "couples set" to be used as pseudo-voodoo dolls?

Oh, and were you wondering when I'll be back in the U.S. on a more permanent basis?
Well, that will all depend on hoops and paperwork and ted tape, oh my!
I'll try to stay sane till then....


  1. Hahahaha,you like that knife block? Geez,your'e begining to scare me..

  2. snglguy: LOL, if you knew what I would have to deal with once I get back "home" you'll understand why that knife block *sooooo* appeals to me... but rest assured, my first thought when I saw the product was not "omg it's great" but rather "omg that is so not safe! those knives are sticking out the back!"

    NJ: many thanx, but you're still about 1.5 months early, dearie! :-)

  3. heyya jacobite, thanx for stopping by and for the feedback! Will be stopping by *your* interesting site often :-)

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…
