Filler: Quizzes

This one was t.o.u.g.h!! But looks like I did quite well...
You Are Incredibly Logical

Move over Spock - you're the new master of logic
You think rationally, clearly, and quickly.
A seasoned problem solver, your mind is like a computer!

Wonder if i got them all right? Gave me a headache, though! I don't like thinking so carefully and logically!

... and maybe because my brain was so fried, I *so* failed this one!!
You Scored 30% Correct

You know some 80s stuff
Like that Paula Abdul was a star back then
But you're not sure who Suzie Q was
And you don't know what Samantha Fox was really famous for!


I'm so ashamed! sob sob!!

but indignant too! I know sam fox was more famous for her chestal appendages than her singing. but, well, I somehow associate Suzie Q with Prince & the Revolution [and vaguely with CCR], but looks like I'm waaaay off - can anyone help? [btw - i retook it, changed some answers after reading more carefully... and *still* scored 30%, LMAO!]

Then there's this other quiz ... but I won't reveal my result [but I *will* tell ya it had a skull, LMAO!] - why don't you go see what you get? The quiz is here. Created by Dave2.

  2. The only Samantha Fox song I remember is "I Wanna Have Some Fun". Beyond that - yeah, all cleavage and ass posters, as far as I can recall.

  3. Well what can I say!? A true 80's kid I was. HUGE fan of Sam Fox. I think I "only" had 250 posters of her in my gigantic room... (I was 11-13 then)

    I got 80% right. Don't know if I should be proud or embarrassed... hihi...

    Love Monsoon

    Ps. Thanks for your comment, and I will definitely look into those What if books you mentioned. Sound really exciting!! Thanks so much!!
    Sad isn't it, how a teacher can destroy one persons will to learn history... Tragic!

  4. Kev> tell me about it... i gave up when my 2nd try with quite different answers also got me a measly 30% :p

    Zero>hi, good to see you! How'd you stumble across this small corner of the blogosphere? :-) and yeah, I remember my brother being a big fan of Sam Fox, and, well, I figured it was for the pix and *not* the sound!

    Monsoon>80%?! Whoohooo, congrats. I think. LOL! The "What If" series - omg, if only I had the book with me [it's in Malaysia, packed away in a box somewhere] I'd gladly send it to you!! I'd bought it with good intentions, but lost my interest realllly fast! :p

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…
