The Netherlands.


We are pleased to announce that in a bid to sensitize the entire world, we have embarked on a promotional lottery and you have been randomly selected as one of the winners. This process was carried out using our bulk emailing software to randomly select email addresses from a pool of over 50 Million email addresses worldwide. The monies accrues from the bulk sum of monies we have unclaimed in our “unclaimed account” from jackpots winners who never came to claim their winnings either as a result of being unaware of due to some negligence on their part as regards proper handling of their tickets/winning numbers.

This effectively qualifies you for the selection along with five other winners to jointly share the total prize of 15 Million Euros (Fifteen Million Euros) of which 3 Million (Three Million Euros Only) is your Prize money.
... any idea what they mean when they wanna "sensitize the entire world"??

It goes on with "Conditions for claiming Prize" and right at the end, warns me that:

There are a lot of emails circulating round which either claim to be Dutch National Lottery or some many other forms of lotteries. Please note that they are no good and their primary aim is to scam you of your hard-earned funds so beware!
aarrrggghhh... please tell me this is for real???!!! har har har... i can only dream.... friggin scam spam... pui!

calling all web-crawling email addy-collecting bots!! more addys for y'all!!

(UPDATE: found this site, and forwarded the email to the addy provided, supposedly the Netherlands authorities are interested in receiving copies of correspondence pertaining to a Dutch address or telephone number. Hope I didn't inadvertently spam someone!)

(UPDATE#2: wow... i just checked sitemeter, and it looks like, of the past 100 hits recorded.. THIRTY of them were searches for essentially "spam email" ... because of this post, obviously. wow. lots of people got that email recently 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…
