lbs > IQ

So nowadays when I hit the gym, I end up doing about 30mins / 300 cals on the elliptical thingy.

Then I usually follow that up with 2 or 3sets x 12 reps on the weight machines - no idea how long I take / how many cals burned.

All I know is, just like when I was in KL - my weight just seems to maintain where it is. On hand hand yay no gain. On the other hand urgh no loss!

I really would like to weigh less [in lbs] than my IQ.

Now, according to this Calorie Calculator, if I entered the info right, I need to be burning an additional 900 cals a day to be losing weight. And that's if I'm already doing an hour of "other" activities on a daily basis. Which I aint. Those gym visits are maybe 4x/week if I'm really good about it! I know, I just need to be a wee bit more active and just go out and explore the city or something... especially before it gets too cold, eh?

Or find some people to play tennis with!!!!!!!!!!! Waaaaaaaaaaaaaaahhhhhhh! I miss tennis!!!

On a related note - it's Agassi's farewell at the U.S. Open this year... man oh man, I remember totally digging his rebellious ways, neon green and black shorts ensemble, flowing locks of hair... and his tennis was pretty good too! All the best Andre, you will be missed. I'll be rooting for you to go out with a bang and win the title one last time. Cheers, dude!


  1. Or swim. I love swimming and I read somewhere that it is the best exercise. Or oga, which I haven't been practising in a long long time.

  2. Adam> yeah I agree that swimming is one of the best and most complete exercises... but when one is not happy with one's body, "exhibiting" it in a swimsuit is quite a tough thing to do... and in my case, while I have a swimsuit I can tolerate, right now I'm not sure where I'd have access to a good pool... ...

    for yoga - yeah, I was thinking I need to "up the intensity and duration" of my workout; combine/complement my gym sessions with yoga [there's a 1-hr workout I have on tape that's pretty good..]

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…
