Vanilla-flavoured day :-)

I'm at the Coffee Bean opposite PJ Hilton.
Which happens to be very close to Restoran Syed.
And today is a Friday.

For those who know: yes, Restoran Syed + Friday = NASI BRIYANI BUKHARA!

Good thing I already got my "briyani" fix a while ago...

... but this is the Bukhara one...... (kinda like the briyani gam - the chicken / mutton is cooked together with the rice or something,,,, really really yummy!)

aiyah, so tempting....

on another note - across the road from me is Stanford College PJ.

Draped on the building is a huge banner advertising their tagline "Take on the World", plus a list of courses available:
  • Accountancy
  • Economics
  • English
  • Hospitality / Tourism Management
  • Law
  • Marketing
  • MBA
  • North American Degrees
  • Pre-U (A-Levels, Foundation Studies)
  • Quantity Surveyor
  • Secretarial Studies

Anyone see anything funny there?


Tho I suppose it would involve committing to memory all the Universities in North America (USA, Canada, Mexico) and the degrees offered by each institution? In that case nvm lah.

update: the weekend drinkfest postponed, bummer. But we may head to Planet Hollywood for their ladies night next week, whoohooo!

10:15 am: F*CK! I just took a sip of my supposed Vanilla Latte - it's vanilla-free. F*CK. I *know* I specified vanilla like TWICE while ordering. F*CK. And guess what? I got charged for a plain Cafe Latte. I'm going to complain anyway - I want my Vanilla!!! Really, the only time I really like coffee is with flavours, especially vanilla. REALLY disappointing, I expect better from my Beanie!!

10:19 am: Aaaah, *much* better! They made a fresh new one for me :-) *now* in heaven, LOL!

The goals for today:
1. source articles off of the net for Rail (some last-minute newsletter thingy - the reason drinkfest got postponed too, grrr!)
2. try to do SG's porn meme :p

Okay, off to "work" I go!

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…
