a mighty wind...

... a mighty wind's a-blowin'
it's blowin' you and me!

Thus ended the song from the movie / spoof documentary A Mighty Wind (a close cousin to This Is Spinal Tap, for those not in the know)

...But a mighty wind is also what's blowin outside right now!

It toppled 3 out of the 4 recycle bins ... me & Kosh righted them, plus put most of the crap back into the bins.. then just as we were halfway across the parking lot, we heard a mighty THUD and guess what? Yeah, one of them was back down again, LOL!

Well, at least we made an effort... :p

The library has a mini-display, its topic changes every few weeks. This one's been up for some time, and always catches my eye when I pass... the "topic" is "Don't Judge A Good Book by its Movie." Some books on display include The Cider House Rules (movie starring Tobey Maguire of Spidey fame), the LOTR books, and a few others.

Today I noticed a new addition - Stephen King's Dreamcatcher! I have one word for this - UGH! The movie was certainly horrendous, but the book didn't do anything for me either...

Kinda makes me doubt the other books on display... (not that I remember them right now, LOL!)

So right now I'm at the library, in case you hadn't guessed.

Actually wanted to be at the gym - was gonna have Kosh drop me off there on the way to his work, then I'd do my ~1hr then add in the 20 + 10 min walk back through the mighty wind to the library to drop off/pick up books and head back to the apartment.

Then I took a look up at the sky - it was u.g.l.y. ... ink black... yikes! Ookay, so we're not subject to tropical storms like in KL, but instinct and habit die hard - I wasn't gonna risk having to walk 30 mins in a cold rain!

So I cut the gym outta the plan... A 10-min walk in potentially crappy weather is much more acceptable than 30mins, don't ya think? *grin!*

Of course, right now it looks like it's all blown away - the sky is not forbidding anymore.... Oh well, the intention to exercise was there :p

I realise need to work on my CV if I'm going to be applying for temporary and/or part-time jobs when I'm back in KL. Bleah.

It struck me that I will have been out of the rat race for about EIGHTEEN MONTHS. I certainly will not be looking for something that puts me right back in the middle of the race.

Maybe you'll see me behind the counter at McDonald's asking "Would you like fries with that?"

Haaahahahahah. Kidding :-)

    elisette; actually, no I haven't heard of Best in Show, so I looked it up in imdb, and was then pointed to another in the same vein: "waiting for guffman". so I'll have two movies to put on my to-watch list :-) thanx!!

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…
