audience participation required!

Got this from Dariush Shafa:

It's an unusual meme in the sense that it needs audience participation.

Here's the deal. If you comment here:

1. I'll respond with something random about you.
2. I'll challenge you to try something.
3. I'll pick a color that I associate with you.
4. I'll tell you something I like about you.
5. I'll tell you my first/clearest memory of you.
6. I'll tell you what animal you remind me of.
7. I'll ask you something I've always wanted to ask you.
8. I'll pick a song that reminds me of you.

And how does this propagate?

Well, u drop me a comment, I'll respond with those 8 points, and in "payment" YOU post this same deal on YOUR blog.

Kinda cool, eh?

I'm wondering how this will turn out.. so come on, get those comments in!



  1. I actully hate memes but I guess I am in. ;-) First one to comment.

  2. Hmmm, this looks interesting. Shoot! :-)

  3. Adam> heehehe well glad u overcame yr hatred for memes for this most unusual one! :-) It is, after all, a great challenge for me... but let's see how this goes...

    1. RANDOM: You helped me educate myself a bit more on the "i love you" vs "satanic" sign on a recent post

    2. CHALLENGE: this is a bit of a cheat cos it was featured prominently by Dariush: i challenge u to post just a wee bt more often that u have in the past. *grin!*

    3. COLOR: blue. like the logo that appears on the tab when i load your blog page :-) used to say "OK" (or was it OK LAH?) and now is juat "A")

    4. LIKE: i like the simplicity of your posts. i feel you're writing for yourself, as opposed to posturing for what you think "people out there" want to read.

    5. MEMORY: Stumbling across yr blog while checking out the MyCen blog directory.

    6. ANIMAL: tough one, seeing as i don't usually associate people with animals, heeehhee!

    7. QUESTION: what on earth is that picture u use as your blogger avatar?

    8. SONG: gotta be Hotel California by the Eagles.. but the live version from teh Hell Freezes Over album (i *assume* that's the album u got cheap-cheap? that's the only live version i know, and i'm amazed u haven't heard that version before).

    (if these responses are weird, it's not *just* the meme or just me... it's me plus vodka plus Milli Vanilli, heehehehe!!)

  4. SG> i figured you'd be the first to comment on this one, was totally surprised Adam beat ya to it! :-) here goes...

    1. RANDOM: I was kinda jealous that kevin had dropped a line in your blog (and not mine) about the Lost Bloggers thingy.. but hey, i participated anyway and found a bunch of kewl bloggers to add to my list, whoohooo!

    2. CHALLENGE: I challenge ya to look for the silver lining in any/every cloud that comes your way (okay so u do that most of the time, but you've been down recently, so maybe this'll help?)

    3. COLOR: ummm.. grey?

    4. LIKE: I like that you take the time to drop a comment almost every time u visit.

    5. MEMORY: Stumbling across ya via Opty's blog: noticing ya precisely because u had a [supportive] comment in practically every post she had at that time :-)

    6. ANIMAL: errr... that Hush Puppy type dawg that's currently on yr blog?

    7. QUESTION: what ultimately caused the divorce? [as if there's ever just one simple answer, i know... ]

    8. SONG: urgh somehow this is tough.. no one song in particular.. i do remember that you had a COOL "oldies" playlist on your iPod tho :D

  5. Hehehe, yeah I know, somebody beat me to it. Okies, so it's my turn to post this comment and my replies, right? :-)

    Oh BTW, have a nice weekend.

  6. I am curious about this too... :-)) Third to comment... My ecuse: was away in Austria for the weekend...

  7. Posted up my responses.

    as for 7. That's a pic taken underwater a few years ago while snorkelling off Pulau Kapas.


Post a Comment

Dear legitimate commenters: all comments are welcome! My sincere apologies for making you go through the word verification hurdle, tho.

Dear spammers: please don't bother... I'm just gonna delete any spam that squeaks through word verification anyway, so why not save us both the trouble, eh?

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…
