Post #950: January Book Update! [January 19th, 2009]
One of my many book posts, this one looking at what I was currently-reading and what waiting to be read, hopefully before they were due to be returned to the library :D

Post #962: this is gonna raise Kosh's eyebrows... [February 18th, 2009]
... where I share my intention of looking for and partaking of MOK YEE, a type of fungus that is supposed to be excellent for reducing cholesterol, and acknowledge that my Western-minded hubby would be shaking his head at my Asian-remedy finding.

Post #973: ... my ghostly school? [March 18th, 2009]
If you're one for ghost stories, do revisit this post, where I share tales about my old school that sob! sob! doesn't exist anymore.

Post #984: What a sight! [April 10th, 2009]
Kosh and I took a walk downtown, and were awedumbstruck by some newly-installed pieces of "art" in Millennium Park.

Post #988: I won! [April 21st, 2009]
My first ever winning of tangible stuff through the internets! Of course, the card, and gift card, have since gone missing :(

With that, the ~10% recap of Life After Work's first millennium of posts now draws to a close.

'Regular' programming to follow.

Right after I...
  • respond to a 4+ month old interview by Culture Shock

  • actually ~write~ something for a planned post-exchange with Roz @ Life in Australia

  • get a handle on my queue of, umm, stuff... let's leave it at that...


Umm, yeah... this might take a while!

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…
