fan tail my a**

So yesterday i was looking for accessories in red/white in a token attempt to fit in the color scheme of a certain wedding I'll be attending in a week's time... found a funky hair accessory Vidal Sassoon's Hair Tail which I immediately grabbed since I'm always on the lookout for things to do with my hair [I have so many hair thingies!], costing USD3, which was a total waste of money. If you see this product on sale and you are tempted by it, take it from me, don't bother. Heck, I even had Kosh play hairstylist trying to figure out how it worked (not that he's an expert of anything, and maaan that would have made for a hilarious photo!) but he couldn't figure it out either. The directions suck! The product sucks!

For some reason, I looked online to see if there was any advice/buzz on this product. Found this. Kinda funny how the winning answer just regurgitates the useless directions. Just confirms my opinion of that whole section of Yahoo.

On to other news: It's amazing how some people are going out of their way to ruin the Harry Potter final book experience for fans [or non-fans, as Dave informs us...]... heck, even the New York Times came out with a review before the book's official release, never mind that they didn't reveal *who* dies, just how many: their "excuse" is that they came across the book by legitimate means and therefore had all the right in the world to read and review it [even though they *knew* no book was to be sold until the 21st!]. I don't get it. Not that I understand the fans either - if you don't want the experience spoilt, then don't read the friggin spoilers! Geeeez!

Me, I just roll my eyes, and just hope that amazon gets it to me before I leave!

And yes, I'm leaving on a jet plane. By this time next week, I should be already in KL, perhaps already having consumed teh tarik and roti canai... Sri Stephen's cheese naan will have to wait till after the weekend. Yummmm :-) The postcard offer is still wide open - go click on the image of the postcard up there on the top of my sidebar to get details. Go! Go! Oh come on, like you don't enjoy getting something *other* than bills in your snail mailbox...



  1. I am always buying "hair things" too... I need to quit wasting so much money!

    Have a safe trip!

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…
