Hairy & Fowl tales

This is one lame pic. But it tells the story.

The story of the badly-draining bathtub.

Which wasn't so bad before, but once I got here what with my long hair and the fact that I was/am shedding or something, it slowly got worse and worse...

to the point where unless you took a lightning fast shower, you were gonna be standing in a few inches of greywater. Ugh.

Yesterday the maintenance guy finally turned up to clear it out, whoohooo!

So after that, i tried to remember to not allow my hair to get into the drain again... so draped the loose hair on the wall instead.

Yum!

But hey, it's probably not clear at all - but that is actually a work of art! There's a female lying back with wild hair around her head giving birth to The Scream.

Seriously!

Now on the shopping list: bathtub drainage protector thingy.

Last night was the SECOND aborted attempt to go to Greek Town for dinner with KTN: the first time Kosh got back at almost 10pm instead of 7pm. This time we'd postponed the meet from 5 to 7pm, hung out a bit, then made our way there,,, only to find the roads cordoned off - for some greek Festival going on this weekend! If we'd known about it we'd have planned accordingly, gone earlier, etc etc etc... as it was, we kinda circled around a bit, then decided we'd just head elsewhere.

Where?

Penang restaurant, in Chinatown - a Malaysian restaurant. LOL!

I gotta say, their belacan fried rice is pretty good!

And they serve roti canai as an appetiser??!! ROTFLMAO

KTN's Kari Sayur [vegetable curry] was okay, but overall curriness was not as good as the little bit of curry served with the roti. Kosh tried the crispy onion duck - which was surprisingly edible! I've tasted duck twice before, and both times have just been barely able to swallow the gamey smokey ickky fowl taste [pun intended], but this time around, I would have been hard-pressed to identify the dead animal as a duck.

Walked up and down one part of Chinatown - I'm surprised at how NOT happening the place was,,, I suppose I assumed it would be like Petaling Street or Chow Kit or something :p

So... that Greek Town meal? Maybe 3rd time'll be the charm?

Today ... champagne & orange juice and leftover belacan fried rice! For breakfast! Yum!

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)

Background
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…
