Sadistic Saturday?

Slept at 230am or something :p Woke up at 730am: 5 hours only, LOL!

Got online a bit later - no new mail within the last 6 hours, bummer.

:p

Thought I'd share the view I had this morning: >>

That's the KL Tower, and side view of the Twin Towers, btw.

Tried to capture the slight blanket of fog at the base of the towers, above the immediate trees/horizon.... but of course can't see all that much detail since it *was* taken using my phone, no zoom, not too great resolution... but still, came out much better onscreen than on my phone (for once!)

And while I was at it, decided to go ahead and share my LRT before and after pix.

BEFORE: yellow box heeded.

Of course, the need to HAVE these yellow boxes, which previously existed just on roads, at intersections, indicating to vehicles not to block the area (i.e. even if stuck in a traffic jam, leave the area free), is already a sign of how kiasu people are...

Then again... if the administrators know that a particulr stop is gonna have lots of in/out traffic, just program the doors to close a few seconds later lah! If we don't want to miss the train, because too many people hogged the doorway getting out, then unfortunately that does mean rushing the doors while people are struggling to come out!

AFTER: forget da box as everyone just heads into the train as others are getting off the train.

typical.

Hey people, it was at 845pm - no need to rush- rush loh!

What, afraid to get out of practice over the weekend izzit?

...

So today, have 1030am pseudo-interview (more about that whole thing later), then about 2 hrs later getting picked up by SS to head for the ex-colleague's wedding reception makan-makan thingy. I had picked out a pseudo-kebaya to wear, but i think i will play it safer and just wear a normal baju kurung. There's just enough extra padding in my hip & thigh area added over the last 1.5 years that the already snug kebaya sarong is even snuggier(?), making it not comfortable for me to walk my normal walk, or maneuver in/out of vehicles! :p

Still have some time to decide...

Kinda.

Gonna have my glass o' milk, mandi, get ready... hitching a ride to the LRT with dad at 10am. Now is 9am.

byyyyee!

  1. Looks like people and LRT's are the same everywhere in SE Asia. It's anarchy during rush hour...

    And I hate it when people purposely position themselves at the entrance even though there's still a lot of room in the middle of the train.

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…
