Why 127? Dunno!

... so it turns out this dude Idham decided to propagate a meme with a difference: for every response to the meme by early August 2007, he donates RM127 on the blogger's behalf to his chosen charity: the Darul Izzah Orphanage, Bangi, Malaysia. He'll hand over the dough on August 11th, 2007. So far, I count 64 entries logged on his post although he's got 87 comments, so probably he's close to 90 now. Dude, that's a very generous amount of dough there, biar betul?

Well, I figure, if this is a sincere intention, then by all means let me invest a little time to play with this... and if it's not for real, oh well, the only harm is I subject y'all to a meme, and that's usually not too too bad, right? Right?

The Rules:
  • The meme is about completing at least seventeen out of the twenty seven sentences provided
  • If you are tagged, you need to write an entry related to the meme.
  • At the end of your entry, tag as many people as you like. You will then leave a comment in their blog to let them know they have been tagged. Please include this message: "By doing this meme you are contributing RM127 to the Darul Izzah Orphanage".
  • Then, please leave a comment in here - so that Idham can keep count.

The meme:
  1. A person is only as good as: his/her own true self
  2. Friendship is always to be treasured
  3. To love is to be vulnerable
  4. Money makes me uncomfortable
  5. I miss nasi lemak with sambal ikan bilis
  6. My way of saying I care is by not getting in your face
  7. I try to spread love and happiness by not getting into people's faces
  8. Pick the flowers when they are ripe?
  9. To love someone is to take them warts and all
  10. Beauty is skin deep
  11. When I was thirteen, what I remember the most was wanting to be a junior prefect SO badly...
  12. When I was twenty one, I remember waking up on the floor of my friends' dormroom...
  13. I am most happy when I can be myself
  14. Nothing makes me happier than helping people expand their horizons
  15. If I can change one thing, I will change nothing!
  16. If smiles were money then I would be filthy rich by the time I was 20!
  17. Wouldn't it be nice if we could all just get along...
  18. If you want to be successful then you have to work at it
  19. Money is not everything but it is an unfortunate necessity
  20. The most touching moment I have experienced is [heh... I'll skip this one... blank! ... sad, eh?]
  21. I smile when I hear a joke?
  22. When I am happy, I smile? Gawd, who came up with these questions?
  23. If only I don't have to [nothing!], then [N/A]
  24. The best thing I did yesterday was snuggle with hubby
  25. If I ever write a book, I will give it this title,"On the outside looking in"
  26. One thing I must do before I die is write a book?
  27. Doing this meme, I feel like an exasperated meme participant
The Tag:
Haaahaha I ever so rarely tag anyone. Anyone who wants to participate, go ahead, by all means! I do hope the race/religion of the charity recipients doesn't matter to potential meme participants, just as the race/religion of participants is not [or isn't overly, anyway] an issue with the meme originator.

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…
