one o' them days

.. or should I say "daze"?

So yeah, I am battling a cold. My throat is scratchy. I'm sniffly. I'm sneezy. Maybe even grumpy (STOP NAMING DWARVES!!). All because I got SOAKED on Friday afternoon :(

Lunchtime: i went out for like 10 - 15 mins around noon, with my dad, to go pick up some lunch - KFC drive-thru. During that time, a storm swooped down on the area from outta nowhere! And... trust the wind to blow the rain riiiiiiiiiight into the drying area - where my ALMOST DRY clothes were now W. E. T. grrrrrrr!! (later, once the rain subsided, I took the clothes down, re-washed 'em, re-hung 'em. Sometimes I *really* wish my parents had a dryer!!)

Some things to cheer me up, and hopefully bring a smile to YOURS too
1. Jill (egg in spoon) has this GREAT "burst of joy" you should read about
2. Kenny Sia contemplates circumcision
3. Moxie has something veeeeeery eeeentereeeesting on eBay
4. Moxie also has vag-pits up for guesses!

But things that brought me down?
- the police being big bullies, threatening to "let lah crime happen", among other things, because they refuse to have an independent committee that would "police the police".
- follow up on the protest fiasco. There's a video available on that link. I've downloaded it, but it's a .mov so I'm gonna have to look at it on the laptop. I'm sure it's bad.

But back to the good news:
Kosh has officially moved into the apartment in Chicago! He's sent pix of the place - nice! I like!! I'm looking forward to getting myself there... whenever THAT is gonna be??!!! *sigh!*

aaaaanyways.... It's almost my 11pm. I think i'll just kinda hang around in bed and hopefully I'll fall asleep sooner rather than later.



  1. errr...thats weird. i'm having one of those watery-nose n scratchy-throat thing as well. the rain definitely brings out the worst in me...


    oopss...excuse me :p

  2. Hey, that's me! Thanks, sister, for the pimping and I'm glad if it made you smile. Hope the cold and rain and laudry all resolved themselves.


  3. ummi> well with the weather as screwed up as it is right now - friggin HOT followed by MAJOR thunderstorms, I'm not surprised if everyone is nursing a cold. but mine came from getting soaked running form teh busstop to my apartment. 30 seconds only, but soaked :(

    SG> thanx!! (wednesday night now, and i *think* i'm over the hump, whoohooo!)

    Jill> hey there! always glad to pimp for those who made me LOL :-) thanx for the wishes too!

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…
