yummy, a list for breakfast!

For the weekend, figured I'd supply reader(s) with random items discovered while surfing the 'net recently: many, but not all, the result of following the Entrecard rabbit down the yellow brick road (more on that in another post).

1. From Dawn at The Quiet Whispers Of A British Angel, I got sucked in to the 100 Most Common English Words challenge. There's also a 50 largest countries challenge - I did better at that than the words one, strange... warning - addictive!

2. From Acadia at Superficial Gallery: Want your computer screen cleaned? Here's an excellent tool to help you out :) [A similar but slightly less effective one here. Click!!] warning - hilarious!

3. Also from Acadia: The Duck Game. (Dave, I immediately thought of you & your artificial duck!) I made it past Level 14 but was then stumped. If *you* do better, tell me! warning - music lulls you into spending MORE time than your realise!

4. From Melissa at Your Fun Family: A Vision Test that tests more, or other than, your vision! I got into a few questions at Level 3 before hitting a wall, maybe you can do better? warning - puzzling!

5. Didn't take note of who (whom?) I'd gotten this gem from: Unnecessary Knowledge. Just hit the generate button for seemingly bottomless trivia, like "The only man in ZZ Topp without a beard has the last name Beard" and "A group of ravens is called a murder". warning - total time waster!

6. and before you think all I'm doing is pointing you towards time wasters, here's a jaw-dropping account of how much effort, time and care goes into the crafting of wedding cakes, in this case, an ivory wedding dress cake. Found on Wedding Cake Hints warning - may make you want to get married all over again!

... and we'll stop at seven because I'm tired and this post has more links than an average chain-link fence:

7. finally, the titular breakfast list found at 'Story' the Great, who funnily enough didn't actually fill in his breakfast, LoL!. warning - may influence you to participate!

The Longest Breakfast Menu List

Everyone likes to start their day with a comfort food for breakfast. What kind of food do you take? This would be a good way to find out your blogger friends’ favourite food for breakfast.

All you need to do is to put your name down, the country you are in and your favourite breakfast meal. Let’s see how we can have this breakfast ‘menu’ travelled all around cyberspace and learn what each blogger living in different country and what do they eat for breakfast. This meme was created by a little lady with a penchant to spy around little baskets while marketing. Her favourite breakfast of the day is none other than Roti Prata, an Indian flat bread. What about you? What is your favourite breakfast meal of the day?

1. Spymama, Singapore - Roti Prata 2. CaramelCorn, Singapore - Half Boiled Eggs and Toast 3. Proud Mommy, Philippines - Fried Rice, Ham and Scrambled Egg 4. It's My Party, Dubai - sunny side-up egg, frankfurters and glass of orange juice 5. Chubz, Philippines - Pan de Sal with bacon or ham and a glass of juice 6. Lord Story 7. *lynne*, USA - eggs, either over-easy or cheesy "dirty" scrambled with turkey sausage and hash browns. 8. You next?

Wanna participate? Just copy between the ** and paste to your site. Please try to keep the links intact too; me being me, I followed the list back to its source in order to have all the links in place. Yes, I *am* a freak sometimes!!


Have a good weekend, y'all!

  1. I found you because you did the Entrecard drop thing on me.

    Here's one post that I could spend my whole Sunday on... unfortunately I can't. I might do the breakfast thing though

Dear legitimate commenters: all comments are welcome! My sincere apologies for making you go through the word verification hurdle, tho.

Dear spammers: please don't bother... I'm just gonna delete any spam that squeaks through word verification anyway, so why not save us both the trouble, eh?

Thanks!

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…
