... a good start to the day

  1. slept till 830! [as opposed to being up at 5am lah!]

  2. went to the gym, did the x-train aerobics setting & used 303 cals in 30mins

  3. cleaned out kitty litter [ok so that's not *that* great a thing to do in the a.m.]

  4. had a bowl of salad [smothered with shredded cheeze & slightly drowning in garlic vinaigrette dresseing, so sue me]

  5. while eating, had the radio on: Genesis' Land of Confusion came on.. and reminded me of something *else* to hunt down on You Tube. If you've seen the video for this song, you know what I mean. [gawd I hope this doesn't date me too much, LOL!]

  6. got online and checked email: and got accosted by two video greetings from the Chief Kodok and the St Marians wishing me a happy birthday in advance [they had a reunion / birthday bash on the 13th... I was, of course, halfway across the world...]; thanx y'all!

  7. Then went to YouTube; found only one of the two specific items: so while the Ga-Baa-Chef / Mouth-Sheep-Tongue skit isn't there, the Don't Run Ron I've tried to describe to Kosh, is! Sit back and enjoy... Spitting Image!!

Now the NEXT best thing [after all those good things listed above] is if Kosh actually gets off of call at noon like he's supposed to.

... And if the futon guys call to say that it's ready for pickup.... and that it can in fact fit in Kosh's car... and that we can assemble it... and finally have a real place to watch TV from! ... and silly us, we're saving a bottle of champagne to mark the first real piece of furniture we've bought together.

No, we're not going to mark the futon with the champagne lah, silly!

Okay... off to shower now...


[hhheeeheh Kosh got back early! watching these vids now LOL. as braindead as heis, now he wants to search for Muppets stuff... helllpppp!! LOL!


  1. salad for breakfast?

    I skipped dinner last night and did one of those "throw something together" deals.

    I took a piece of rye bread and coated it with olive oil then grilled it, then rubbed it with fresh garlic.

    Took slices of grilled zucchini and layed them on top. More olive oil.

    Covered it with a couple slices of mozzarella and stuck it under the broiler.

    Sprinkled it with fresh black pepper and fresh basil.

    Wow. Now I'm hungry again.

  2. Chanakin> that sounds yummy! but too much work! :-)

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…
