my typo fairy went hogwild, didn't he?

Wow... I'm only now reading what I last posted... where I didn't get to reread anything, and just hit publish assuming I'd done ok with my typing... heck, the screen was flickering and all smushed up, there was no way I *could* read what i'd typed... yikes, it was bad, LMAO! so there you have it, one reason my posts take a while to get published, or, once they are, I may republish a few times as I read and then find error after error, LoL!

anyways... time is slowwwly running out for my trip to Malaysia... next stop, Switzerland! Land of chocolates, cheese, and clocks [we'll i'd say "watches" but thought i'd stick to the "c"s]... I think i'll be taking a whole bunch of the chocs back w/ me to Chicago :-)

This might be my last Malaysian entry, so let me just mention that my parents and I went to see TUNKU the Musical last night [TQ TQ TQ TQ Lina!!], and wow, go go go go go see it! The storyline is a bit weak la, but it still serves as a good reminder/education for those who forgot/never really knew the history of Malaysia in terms of the racial divide, the separation of Singapore, and the race riots of May 13th 1969. But... what made the whole thing an excellent show is the fact that it is 99.9% song. And excellent songs. Excellent singing. A fantastic production. Look for where the cynical reporter finally gets "hit" with the enormity of the racial havoc. Prepare to be impressed at the artistry yet utterly horrified at the realistic portrayal of a rape during the height of the riots. Overall, it's 2 hours well spent. And an indication of great things to come in the Malaysian arts scene. Read/see more here and here.

Okay.. over and out!

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…
