#992: the "we've met!" list grows longer!

Last August, I kinda broke out of my shell and did my first bloggers' meet-up, courtesy of Dave (of's visit to Chicago. As a result of that, I could then draw up a separate "we've met!" blogroll (see sidebar).

Earlier this year, I met up with two Malaysian bloggers:
- Lina, who with three blogs almost rivals me, LoL!
- Chewbies, who blogs at Bubble Tea Conversations
whose names and blogs have finally been added to said blogroll...

And yesterday...

I'm happy to add the following to the list:
... and the person responsible for the meet-up:

So it was just the five of us (plus Kosh, who was at a nearby table pretending not to be listening to us while pretending to study some medical textbook, LoL!), and it was just the right number of people. Yes, I was my usual quiet and listening self, but I don't think that detracted from the conversations. Right, gurls? :D

... I now have 4 more people and 7 more blogs added to the "we've met!" blogroll.

Here's to plenty of new additions in the future!

  1. Oops, left my comment on the wrong blog. It really was a fun afternoon and I'm looking forward to getting together again soon.

  2. LOL!!!!
    Where are the squirrel masks?????

  3. Nice art work on your photo. Lol! Did you see how I went with the squirrel theme? Notice my spikey squirrel hair?

  4. Ooo, what a fabulous looking group of gals! Loved meeting you all!

  5. it's nice to see Lola's face, I visit her blog everyday, to drop EC and to read a wee bit of everything. I've never been to any blogger's meet before and would love to be in soon. :)

  6. Wasn't it just a hoot?!!! It was just so fun to meet such nice gals and chat and laugh about whatever. Now we have more to laugh about because Lola incorrectly posted us as Squirrels!! Your "clown face" work is almost as funny, except you need a clown wig!

    I hope Kosh had fun listening! I'm sure he was dying over there. And I think you had a few things to add and not too overly quiet. :)

    I'm glad we all met and hope to do it again--it was a nice experience and one I'll treasure.

  7. Hey, wasn't it you who told us about Vodka Mom and leaving blogging? I thought so, maybe I'm wrong....whatever--she's back up and running today! She's moving on in spite of her bad commentor! Hooray!

  8. Oh it must have been sooo cool to have met bloggers like that. I haven't met any of mine, but then they live in USA, Italy, Canada, France, Scotland, Iran and Argentina, and I live in Norway, so it might not be so strange... I'd love to have a blogmeet with you though, so beware if I ever come to the US... I am so sorry that I am insanely bad at both blgging myself and keeping up with others. I am writing my Bachelor thesis and I guess that amongst other things keep me busy outside blogger world. I don't understand that counter of yours because I know for fact I visited your blog several times in April, just didn't leave a comment.... Odd...

    Well take care you!

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…
