no this is NOT a scheme to make you hit F5 / refresh so that I log more page views per visitor... but you'll only see the result of my latest tinkering with this blog if you *do* hit F5/refresh... so humor me please and refresh this page? Thanx! You like? Me being me, I'm going to go for overkill and load up like TEN or MORE since I found so many I liked, LoL!

- hack: here
- images: here, here and mostly here.

P/S> the next step is to incorporate elements of / change this into a Neo-type blog. Work in progress: here


  1. Good grief - I never knew there was so many cool things you can do with Blogger. I just wish I had the time (and energy) to try some of this stuff. I'm quite sure you'll find the exact same template at my place 5 years from now ;b

  2. Thanks for dropping by. I've to revert back to my old Thur's three column Minima classic coz I can't get the drop down menu working. I've to do some experiment before I'm up to par with the new layout. I'm a classic guy, the new layout is beyond me. Maybe you can help me out or I might be using your Flooble's Expandable Contents. FYI, I got the four column template from Mauriya's. BTW, love your new header. Got a lot of ideas coming, eh? I can see the bulb blinking, lip lap, lip lap, lip lap...

  3. whoa~
    cooooool la! as for me, dah pening pusing2 trying to find one i really like so going to stick with what i have now

  4. Very cool. Now if only I can convince Typepad to let me do that as well. I've been wanting to implement a rotating header image for some time now.

  5. HH> you're missing out! But there's certainly something to be said for maintaining your brand/image too...

    Noor> thanx for the link! But yeah, I think the most I'd go to is 3-col. I'll go see how yours looks right now. The Flooble Expandable Contents work good enough for me - I bet there are other options available, but the few I came across required a LOT of messing around within the template - after trying anf failing a few times, the Flooble thing was ideal!

    Ummi> heehehe I can relate, totally! I noticed that your source of new template only provides blogger classic/old templates, what a bummer! I'm getting more appreciative of all these widget thingies in Beta/New blogger, so I suppose I'll just keep tinkering some more over here...

    Kev> Yeah this is where I go blur - just how different *is* the coding stuff from one platform to another? I'm glad there are plenty of hackers around on blogspot to feed me the tweaks I need :-)

    Karl> yup, well *i* certainly think so, anyway, LoL! btw - nice to "see" ya! Guest posts are *not* satisfying! :-D

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…
