It's already Wednesday??

I am on to my 4th book in 5 days.

  1. Storm Front – Jim Butcher: Excellent. I’m gonna be looking for the next few books in this series.

  2. The Magic of Recluse – L. E. Modesitt Jr: Okay lah. A good read but not good enough for me to buy any other books of this author/series, that’s what libraries are for :D

  3. The Joy of Work – Scott Adams: I think I’ll just concentrate on his comics. And an occasional visit to his blog. But I *am* considering picking up his “serious” non-Dilbert book God’s Debris. But maybe that’s also gonna be a library thing :p

  4. Zen and the art of Motorcycle Maintenance – Robert M. Pirsig: Am about a third of the way through. Wow. This is very thought provoking. And it’s really amusing to recognize what the Ferrari-less Monk was trying to imitate but failed oh so badly!

On another note or two:
  • anyone else have problems with blogger my last night? I couldn’t sign in, couldn’t view any blogspot blog. What the heck is wrong with them, that their service has taken such a nosedive in the past two months??

  • for those who know about that article I got assigned to do: All I can say is unfuckingbelievable. *gasp!* that’s right, no self-censorship this time! I will control myself and rant AFTER it is all over. Give that one person one last chance to redeem itself. And for me to trudge through and just churn out some good enough piece of crap, seeing as my motivation to do this has been shot to hell. It’s been a great trip down memory lane dealing with someone who to me epitomizes what’s wrong with the place I used to not just work, but pour my heart and soul into.



  1. I still have a half hour of Tuesday left. Enjoy the rest of your week. Loved reading your blog by the way.

  2. 4 books in 5 days? How do you have time to post about it. That's neato. I'm not a book person so I can't relate.

  3. Matt> hi, thanx for stopping by :-) and the kind words :-) hope to see you more often! I just dropped by your blog too - all the best for this summer before college!

    TNChick> heehehe well it helps that i'm a jobless bum *grin!* and I really so like reading. Tho I have my "seasons": like now, the reading seson has started, it was in a slump for quite a while. and now i'm making up for it, LOL!

  4. Hey Lynn... Either you are a very, very fast reader, or you have gobs of time on your hands. Perhaps it's both. Read on woman. Read like the wind... (ever seen Three Amigos?)

    And I like your choices. Especially Zen and The Art of Motorcycle Maintenance....

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…
