The running man, and other thoughts

  • Well, maybe not the running man per se. How about the heavy relaxed but happy male? Or a light nervous sad female? See how they run, see how they run. Or walk. Or something. It's about 5 minutes of fun. Try it out: the Bio Motion Lab walker.

  • Wanna know what sort of life expectancy you have? Mine's a projected 90 (without "activating" advances in things like gene therapy / stem cell research). And that's with an income of ZERO muuaahahahaaaa! What's amusing is to see the "worth" of things like mineral supplements (5 years), & active sex life (3 years). Another 5 minutes of amusement HERE.

  • Possible explanation for my "looseness" alluded to in a previous post: combination of the fat-dispering massage with my detox neem supplements which I started taking again last week. "If you consume blood purifiers, you must remember that they will cause your body to push out toxins. You might notice stronger or darker urine. It may also be more pungent. Your stools may be unusual." Ya think? :p But yeah, I realised that while I stopped a major input of toxins into my body since August 22nd 2004, i haven't actually "detoxed" myself since then. I'm sure I'm in need for it. Hence the neem. And "unusual" "output" even before the massage, LOL!

Oh, gotta share what happened last Sunday night: The parents & I got into the car at 740pm to get to dinner. The plan was to go to the Japanese restaurant at a golf club in Subang where my dad's a member. It's a bit further out than where we usually go, but it was a sunday, and i guess my dad was in the mood to drive.

We got there, parked the car, and were walking towards the building, when POOF! the lights went out! No no no no no i didn't faint, nor did a prankster creep up behind me and cover my eyes and shout "Guess who??" ... it went POOF because the power went out!

After hanging out a bit hoping it was just a matter of someone having to slip a switch back on somewhere, decided to move on elsewhere.

Since we were a bit beyond their "normal" feeding area, the parents weren't really sure what was available & nice & palatable & "up to standard". They decided to try out the pizza place next to the Subang Jaya Medial Center. I thought it was a Pizza Hut. My dad thought it was a Shakey's. Turns out it's now a Domino's, LOL! So it was a blessing in disguise that we couldn't find any parking there: it was opposite a hotel that was obviously having a function with VIPs judging from the police "assisting traffic" around there.


Drove back from the Subang area via the new highway, exiting at Jalan Gasing, and actually found a parking place right in front of Gem restaurant. Only to see a busload of brightly-clad Indian tourists walking in the door: they cater to these groups quite often, but never on a regularly scheduled basis, so we never know if they are open to walk-ins or not until we get there. This was one of the times they could NOT accomodate walk-ins.

What to do... back into the car we went, this time heading to Pizza Hut in PJ NewTown. The restaurant was bustling, but we were seated in no time.

It was 845pm.

All in all, it had taken us over an hour to get to a place that was perhaps 8 minutes away.

Yep, it was one of those days... :p


  1. You went through all that trouble, and ended up in a pizza place instead... bummer.

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…
