OK Go & LEGO!

I highlighted a weird music video of a great dance routine involving six treadmills in my earlier post. I enjoyed to song too, but couldn't concentrate too much on it cos I was just too fascinated by the video!

Looking thru some blogs I've neglected to read for a while, came across Matt's post that has *another* video by these guys. (Check it out here, and tell him i sent ya)

So my curiosity was piqued, decided to find out a bit more about these guys.

They are OK Go.

Wikipedia page here.

Official site here.

I kinda assumed they were some weird European group... but in fact they are from Chicago! I was waaaaay off, LOL!

But you know what? I have now more item(s) for my wish list! Any [knowledgable] OK Go fans out there who can tell me which albums I should consider adding to my collection? [and yes, I'm still kinda old-school - i'd rather have a physical album {albeit CD as opposed to vinyl} than download the MP3 versions, whether legally or illegally] I'm considering OK Go and Oh No, so if I had to choose just one, which should it be, or is there another better one? Any feedback would be greatly appreciated!

Oh... and something else I found when looking thru blogs I'd neglected for too long: some awesome LEGO movies! THIS POST has three professionally made movies and if you search for other posts around that time you'll find more, less "slick" ones too. But my fave is the Star Wars Ep V 1/2: The Han Solo Affair. I burst out laughing at quite a few places! Check it out, hope you enjoy it too. And tell Hurty Elbow I sent ya :-)

Ah, the wonders of YouTube....!

  4. OK Go is a pretty decent band. I have one earlier album and am awaiting the arrival of this one at the library. Can't wait.

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…
