Sunday This n That

  1. Random Technobabble Generator: generate fun stuff like "Proffessor [sic], the power supply of the prototype bioneural gelpack has been modulated."

  2. ... page after page of knuckle tattoos: kinda cool how someone's attitude can get condensed into eight letters. Look for the DAMN FOOL one - I dig it! btw, you can create your own with the Knuckle Tattoo Gun too, I unfortunately ran out of creative juices, but would love to see what you come up with!

  3. anyone wanna go on a 12 week, multi-continent backpacking journey? From London to Sydney? Then look to Ozbus to get you there. Sounds incredible... and the scaredy-cat that I am would only do it is I knew a whole bunch of people who were going at the same time :p

  4. yet another free online book resource: ReadPrint. Not for downloads, you just read off of the screen, if you're okay with that. Right now seems to be concentrating on "classics". There's William Blake, maybe I'll actually read something of his then :p I looked for Kafka but he wasn't there, bummer.


And a small description of yesterday's noteworthy event:
    So yesterday Kosh and I were in the mood for breakfast food, made our way to IHOP but wow we couldn't even find a parking space, maybe it was the rainy weather that drove everyone out for comfort food? I was willing to settle for a crappy burger from a fast food place, but Kosh was kinda longing for pancakes and/or eggs since I'd gotten him in the mood for 'em, so we drove around elsewhere, soooo hungryyyyyy, came across Pindos (?) at Archer & Pulaski, a family dining place with a twist of Greek. We took the last real parking space, but there were still plenty of free tables, cool! Apart from the din of the busboys pushing carts of rattling glasses and dirty dishes along the tiled floor, it was a pleasant experience. Nothing outstanding service-wise, although it was amusing the waitress, an older woman with a rather loud raspy voice, kept calling me "Babe". But the food! MmmmMmmmMMMMmmm!! I had Palestinian Crepes, the crepes themselves with a strong lemon taste, wrapped around generous amounts of sour cream topped with their "crepe sauce". Kosh had a spinach & feta cheese omelet and wow you actually tasted both ingredients, it wasn't bland [unlike most omelets ordered from any other breakfast-type place], the hashbrowns were mega crispy, parts that weren't crispy just melted in your mouth, and it came with a side of two pancakes. The portions were just right, and prices reasonable. We might go back there instead of IHOP the next time we feel like breakfast food!

  1. Love the knuckle tattoo site. I'm gonna have to come up with a clever one so I can use the picture on a post.

    Of course it would be easier if were actually clever.

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…
