the (kinda late) movie meme

I saw this meme on a few folk's blogs, but with my brains being all scrambled and all, time passed by quite a bit before I got off my butt and tried it out here.

Here's what it's all about:

* Pick 15 of your favorite movies
* Go to IMDB (or wherever - if you know it by heart, even better, LoL!) and find a quote from each movie
* Post them on your blog for everyone to guess
* Fill in the movie title once it’s been guessed (and I will also link to the correct guesser's blog - free link love, whoohooo!)

These are your rules:
* No Googling or using IMDB search functions (i.e. Don’t cheat! Please! It's simple enough, really...)
* Leave your answer(s) in the comments (and even if you're not sure, just guess, have fun!)

.... and here they are, in no particular order ...
  1. "You will never find a more wretched hive of scum and villainy. We must be cautious." (Star Wars - Kim)


  2. "Margaret Thatcher naked on a cold day! Margaret Thatcher naked on a cold day!" (Austin Powers: International Man of Mystery - KApgar)


  3. "Ditto." (Ghost - KApgar)


  4. "Roads? Where we're going we don't need roads." (Back to the Future - KApgar)


  5. "Aaarrrggghhh! C*cksucker motherf*cker!" (The 40 Year Old Virgin - Miz UV)


  6. "A: Werewolf?" "B: There." "A: What?" "B: There, wolf; there, castle!" (Young Frankenstein - Eden)


  7. "I *did* knock..." (Nanny McPhee - Kat)


  8. "It's levi-OH-sa, not levio-SAR." (Harry Potter & the Sorcerer's/Philosopher's Stone - Eden)


  9. "... and since I am dead / I can take off my head / to recite Shakespearean quotations..." (The Nightmare Before Christmas - Eden)


  10. "He chose... poorly." (Indiana Jones & the Last Crusade - Kim)


  11. "A: Give me any kind of signal." "B: I'll do this: Caw! Caw!" "A: What are you, an infant? We have *these*!" (GALAXY QUEST - Kim)


  12. "A: Fahza, his dad, dad is fahza." "B: Oh, his dad. His *fa-ther* "
    (Austin Powers in Goldmember - KApgar)


  13. "A: This sure doesn't taste like an iced tea." "B: It's from Long Island."
    (Cruel Intentions - Lori)


  14. "Comb the desert!" (SpaceBalls - Kim)


  15. "Slowly, slowly, it's too nice a job to rush!"


QUALIFIER: not all of these movies are my "top 15" ... some I just quote from because that one quote might have been the highlight of the entire movie, y'know? :-) Anyways, have fun with this...

btw, I managed to get one right over at suze's - whoohooo :-)

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…
