Maybe Lorena Bobbit works for a mamak shop? and other rambling thoughts

Karl [and other enquiring minds] - I'd describe the t- sheets as "warm and comfy", but not overpoweringly suffocating the way flannel sheets are. I suppose compared to flannel, t-sheets are cooling. Definitely comfy! Yes, they get a bit warped when washed, just like regular tee's. And a drawback to the specific brand we ended up buying three sets of is that the pillowcases don't have "flaps" on them, so the ends of the pillows might stick out a bit. But hey, overall, I'm happy with them. :-)

Cat - somehow, Kosh had the day kinda free yesterday, so we took the cat to a vet, where Kosh agreed to put the cat through its Senior Ageing Wellness Program or whatever, which essentially means you pay mucho dinero for blood tests & urine analysis targetted for elderly cats [I think she's 8 or 10 years old]. Except that they couldn't extract her urine - it seems she has a tiny bladder that would not suffer being poked by a needle too well. So we were given an aluminium pan, fake litter [which looks like sillica gel balls, but is totally opposite - these do NOT absorb liquid] and told to get the cat to pee in that, then get a full syringe worth of pee, and bring that back over to them. Yeah. Not really sure how to set it up such that she will actually "go" there, all we could come up with was to put that aluminium pan right there in her litter box, on the existing litter. Takes up maybe 75% of the surface area. Rolled up other rugs that she might decide to "go" on instead. But. Guess what? It's been over 15hours - she ain't peed yet. Anywhere. I need to get that sample to them before we leave town this afternoon! Arrrrgggghhhhh!!

Torpedo Soup - something "discovered" in 2001 by me, my then-bf and KTN & CLB who were visiting Malaysia for the first [and so far, only] time. More details here, triggered by ToniXe. If you *still* don't know what it is [especially with the title of this post as a major clue - different species, same organ], well, I suppose you can drop me a comment and I'll tell ya how blur you are, how's that? teeheehee!

Exercise - huh? what's that??? heehehee no lah, not that bad lah... but I *was* "absent" from the gym for almost a week, then the past two days saw me doing 35 min then 40 mins at Level 2 then Level 4 on the elliptical thingy. Yesterday I burned over 400 cals (which covers two zone bars, lol!), whoohooo! This weekend, exercise is pretty much shot tho. I need to up the frequency, followed by duration, of these sessions. Don't feel like doing any of that today though. Heeehehehee!



  1. You are a fitness geek! 400cal per day? Soon, you will burnout...

  2. O.k.

    Tangily heavy spicy beef brew sounded reeeeal good.

    What if the bull wasn't.... well.... gifted?

  3. Mav> really? doesn't seem like much, somehow. No worries, I exercise in spurts anyway - haven't hit the gym since this post a week ago!

    Ganga> yup... look at the sidebar, I'm in Chicago already, since 30th July 2006 :-)

    Chanakin> you never know, it may the the same broth for all the cow/bull-related soups, then they throw in the relevant body parts [penis / tail / etc] depending what you order? And unless you know what it tastes like, maybe substitutions are made without the customer being any wiser?? btw, according to ToniXe's little post, you can oder the organ uncut/separate from the broth. yum. you can try, I will, errr, I will... I will... I will stay away, LOL!

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…
