Concatenating randomly-generated words

My second BSB post HERE, with a lesson in vocabulary (and spelling?) in the comments; do drop by :)

And since I am (was) downloading stuff and needed to keep the connection going, figured I'd concatenate some of those randomly-generated words, just for the heck of it... here goes!!
A:What are the odds of coming across a small stone / piece of gravel in your rice?

B: Not that high, I guess.. rice is usually well-polished and cleaned and processed by the time it is put into those bags to be sold... but I must say, if you *do* come across it while chewing, it makes such a horrible noise in your head, does it not?

A: Yep, like you broke some teeth or something, so terrible the sound...

B: Hey, ever had bird's nest soup or not?

A: No, never. And now, scared lah to eat anything related to birds, what with that bird flu thing!

B: You know, unless and until it's wiped out, I aint touching no poultry! In the interim, I'm considering going vegan!

A: Hmmph. Go ahead lah. The trials and tribulations I faced just by being an egg & dairy vegetarian were bad enough, what more to be vegan?? Good luck lah to you!

B: Aiyah, healthier what, in SO many different ways! You know how you feel obligated to eat all of the courses served when attending a Chinese dinner? Now, I have good excuse mah! Then I won't overeat... concentrate on just having the kailan, taufu and other veggies...

A: That argument almost makes sense... except that unless you are very strong-willed, no way are you going to be "good". The food would smell too good mah.

B: Patience is one of my virtues. No worries.

A: *cough!* *seems to be gasping for air*

B: Ayoyoyo, are you all right? You are turning red in the face!

A: I'm okay,,, Haahahahaha... I just don't remember you being patient with that poor lad at the restaurant yesterday - he hardly understood English, how do you expect him to understand you saying that the meal "... failed to satisfy" you? Cakap je lah you didn't like the meal! You raise your voice at him for what...

B. heehehe and then he pointed to that poster on the wall thinking I wanted the brand of cigarette that promised satisfaction... that was hilarious! [pause] Okaylah, so maybe "patience" isn't the right term for me...

A: you got THAT right, bro!

Wow... that bites... LOL!

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…
