better late than never - another round of the interview meme!

A few years ago, this interview meme went around the blogosphere, and I participated here and here. It's making its way around again: I did one round over at a malaysian abroad recently. I had also requested an interview from Kapgar back in December, and he sent me his questions, but somehow, I didn't notice the email until a few days ago. Sorry Kapgar!!

So here we are.. better late than never... yet another iteration of the Interview Meme!!

  1. Malaysia and the United States of America get into a knock-down, drag-out, full-on street brawl to the death and you're a witness to it. A vendor comes by and offers you a giant foam finger to stick on the end of your hand to show your support during this time of turmoil. Do you pick the one that says "Malaysia" or the one that says "U.S.A."? Be honest.
  2. Honestly? I'd be too grossed-out to even compute the offered finger.

  3. What's the drunkest you've ever been and what did you do while trashed?
  4. Oh my, where so I start??! LoL! So many tales from college life. But there's one more recent one: back when I met Kosh's parents for the first time, his father fixed me some deceptively strong Fuzzy Navels, so much so that I was half passed out in the bathroom fighting puke urges. And when my future FiL poked fun at me for not being able to hold my liquor, in my drunken haze, I. flipped. him. the bird.

  5. What is the one thing you've seen your fellow bloggers do that you would never, ever consider doing yourself on your own blog?
  6. Soliciting dares on how to mark my birthday, then actually DOING those dares! I'm in awe of Karl and his jumping out of a plane thing, but some of the other dares? No friggin way!

  7. What is the strangest e-mail or comment you've received as a result of your blogging? How did you respond?
  8. Good question. Nothing comes to mind, really. Does that mean I have a really large comfort zone and thick shielding?

  9. List your top five sick-day, stay-at-home movies.
  10. Firstly, I would probably curl up with a good book before I would watch a movie. I'm wired a little differently, LoL! But I suppose I would take a gander at the following movies:
    - Rocky Horror Picture Show
    - Shock Treatment
    - Galaxy Quest
    - Nightmare Before Christmas
    - any of the LoTR movies - but only when I need to fall asleep, LMAO!

    = = =

    Want in on the fun? You can be a part of it by following a few simple steps:

    • Leave a comment here on this post and ask me to interview you (you'll need to give an email addy!)
    • I’ll respond within 1-5 days with 5 questions directed to you (I’ll tailor questions to uniquely you by going thru your blog)
    • Answer the questions on your blog and link back to this post
    • Invite others to participate by re-posting these steps
    • Once you’ve posted your interview, drop by here again and leave the permalink in the comments. I’ll post a link to it here.

  1. What gives? You wait a year for my question on the zodiac symbols and now how long for my interview???


  2. For question number 3 above - I thought you'd answer "exposing myself while wearing inadequate amounts of 'Davewear'" - i.e., what Avitable did after he got his shipment of items from Artificial Duck / Blogography.

    You grossing me out by showing me that might actually be my first introduction into your little group of bloggers. Strong work.

    The link, for those of you with iron constitutions, is here.

    Eeeewwww. Dave, we're all still waiting for some shorts.

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…
