Yesterday & Today

Yesterday, I had this feeling that I was going to bump into someone I knew, probably an ex-colleague or something.

The plan was to meet up with Kindred Spirit at Sentral, take the train to Mid Valley, then spend most of the day there just walking around, chatting, etc. Figured if I were to bump into someone, it would be there.

So we walked, and ate, and walked, and drank, and chatted chatted chatted … all in all I think we spent almost 7 hours in each other’s company, I think that must be some sort of record for me, LOL!

Still hadn’t bumped into anyone I knew.

Headed back to the Sentral where we parted ways, and I took the LRT with the usual plan of getting off (hahaha) at the station closest to the apartment; my mother would then come pick me up.

But: by the time I got there, it was raining hard. And it was after 630pm, so the traffic in the area wasn’t all that good. Suggested that the parents head out for an early dinner around 7pm and either pick me up from the nearby shopping complex, or head to that place to eat so I’d just meet them there (dinner is always an eat-out affair w/ my parents…).

Since I requested “no rice” for dinner [seeing as I had had my first nasi lemak of the year for lunch (Madam Kuan’s) – excellent, but extremely rich, and I was still burping it up so many hours later….], we ended up having either assam laksa or curry laksa for dinner at that shopping complex. A lackluster affair, but hey, I treat that as a soup dish and don’t eat the noodles, so I was happy that I wasn’t stuffed like I tend to be when having to follow my parents’ rather unwise evening eating habits :-)

... *still* hadn’t bumped into anyone I knew.

Then parents decided to head over to Bangsar Village to visit the DIY shop, and do some miscellaneous shopping. And once we finally get the car parked, get into the building, head towards the escalator….

... I see an ex-colleague of mine!

Couldn’t chat too too long, she was there with hubby and kids, they were heading one way, I was heading another, but it was just excellent that SHE was the one I ended up bumping into yesterday.

Today, felt the effects of having mall-walked most of the day… felt soooooo tired…. ached all over…. but it was a *good* ache :-)

Despite the lethargy, I still headed to the gym,,,,, but when my usual 5 mins warm-up on the cycle didn’t raise much of a sweat, I knew it was going to be a light & slow day for me.

Which is fine.

I didn’t push myself, but I still ended up taking about an hour: 3x10 reps for various shoulder, lats, sides, chest, triceps, quads (oops I forgot biceps today!) exercises, plus some ab work. And a bit more cycling at the end.

Gonna take it easy for the afternoon, then at 4pm I need to be in the KLCC area to meet an old friend. We’ll also be watching the 5:15pm showing of Underworld 2. I did say that I hadn’t seen Underworld 1 yet, but then, turns out, neither had she, LOL! I do know it involves vampires & werewolfs, and that it looks like a bad ripoff of The Matrix. I wonder what we are in for…. I suppose I’ll say more, if needed, once I’ve sat through it :D

Okay, time to de-stink-ise myself.

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…
