match & mix!

The holiday weekend wasn't too productive, but it certainly provided a combined quality *and* quantity time catch-up for Kosh & I :-)

Now, about those t-sheets: Yes, Neil, they *do* get all creased when washed. In fact, I'd call them "warped" - which is what happens to regular tee's anyway, so I did expect that. And I figure it's a minor setback to the major comfy-ness :-) So we went to the store yesterday, and saw a whole lot more color options to choose from [lavender, yelow, grey, sky blue, ...]! In the end we went with two: a maroon [not "red", so not an x-mas combo with the olive green we have], and the khaki [there was a lighter/tan one, but the slightly darker khaki was better]. And they match each other too, so we have THREE to mix and match with, whoohoooooo!!

On Sunday, Kosh and I went out looking for a place to have brunch on the nearby eatery street. I'd originally requested we look for a place that served crepes, but, well, none of that kinda thing on that street [and we needed to be closeby since Kosh was on call]. There's one brunch place that was overflowing with customers waiting to be seated - figured we'd try that some other time. So then headed to what is essentially a bar that [from a sign in the window] serves breakfast. The breakfast itself was not outstanding - heck, I was drowning my omelette in ketchup in order to get some taste :-( BUT BUT BUT the bonus of having eaten there?? We had the opportunity to observe a real-life Cliff Clavin! There were three guys at the bar [at 1030am], and the tv screen in front of them were playing some music video channel... and "Cliff" was spouting all sorts of music-related miscellaneous information about the bands [not necessarily what was on screen]: so the drummer from Rush lost his wife and daughter int he span of a few months; the Rolling Stones are in good financial shape because their finances are managed by ol' Mick himself, who happens to have a degree in economics; and oh so many more. And hey, I do NOT listen in to conversations, and we were seated in a booth away from the bar, but we still managed to bask in the glory that is Cliff. Lol! He wasn't in a Post Office uniform tho.

In other news - the Crocodile Hunter is dead - killed while doing what he loved: what better way to go? May he rest in peace.

And on another note: the clock counting down to madness and mayhem is ticking faster and louder.

Be prepared for sporadic posts - should be back to normal in a week or so.



  1. Cheer up, honey!

    Things happened and events unfold. But life goes on!

    Happy blogging!

    Eh, and don't eat too much; hehehe!

  2. So the sheets are cool and comfy? Enquiring minds want to know!

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…
