Another meme, a salute, lullabies and laundry

No worrries, this one is quite painless :-)

Here are rules of the 123/5/3 book meme, courtesy of SG:

1. Grab the nearest book.
2. Open the book to page 123.
3. Find the fifth sentence.
4. Post the text of the next 3 sentences on your blog along with these instructions.
5. Don’t you dare dig for that “cool” or “intellectual” book in your closet! I know you were thinking about it! Just pick up whatever is closest. (Like all my books aren’t intellectual)
6. Tag three people.

Okay, here goes nothing!!
Physical examination may reveal a pericardial friction rub, asterixis, hypertension, and/or decreased urine output. Hypovolemia suggests prerenal failure, whereas hyupervolemmia is consistent with renal or postrenalfailure. Other signs and symptoms reflect the underlying cause (see Table 3.12).
That fascinating bit of gobbledygook was brought to you courtesy of Dr Kosh Naranek and the book First Aid for the Wards: Insider Advice for the Clinical Years. And as usual, I do not tag anyone. :-)

Other stuff:

What a delightful find! Thanx to Eden, I've found the bestest stuff for babies, music-wise! By Baby Rock Records, there's this Rockabaye Baby! series of Lullaby Renditions of various groups like Nirvana, Metallica, Smashing Pumpkins and The Beatles!

Today I laughed and laughed and laughed till I had to wipe tears away from my eyes; Karl is such a brave brave brave man, I just *have* to share his bravery with y'all. See HERE. I salute you, Karl! :-) [am gonna watch the vid again - once I'm done with this post!] [watch the hands @ 2:07] [Karl i *so* want that shirt! not that particular one lah all sweaty meh; "where can i find a geek t-shirt like that?"]

And it's now 1130am. I should start on some laundry. After shower. After watching Karl again.



  1. I got that shirt from my ex-girlfriend. I believe she got it at Thinkgeek, though I'm not positive. They do have some great shirts, though.

  2. LOL, I just rewatched the damn thing to see what was at 2:07. Wow. Nice adjustment.

  3. Kev> by all means, help yourself :-) I think it's a kinda dated meme, not that that should detract from the pleasure of completing it, eh? :-0

    Karl> thanx for the tshirt tip, I'll have to check it out and drop not-so-subtle hints to Kosh/family for upcoming b-day/knot-tying things :-) And yep, those hands at 2:07, well, teeheehee let's just say that's just one of the many little things I noticed that had me cracking up, LOL! Oh, and in *my* dictionary? Look up the word brave and your picture - no your video! - is the definition. :-)

  4. I like the lullabies too. They should have a "buy all" discount, once they're all available.

    I think you could get that shirt at Think Geek or maybe at someon's Cafe Press store.

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…
