A day in the life ...

This past weekend, Nova had a busy busy Saturday. First, he was graduated into the big boy stroller (i.e. NOT in the bucket seat in the stroller).
Then he cheered on guys in heels...
Then he was totally knackered, and rested a while.
Daddy and Mommy then drove him around in the big boy car seat (technically this pic is from the following Monday, but, well, I wanted the story straight, LoL!)
... then we arrived at Scheels, where he said hi to some fishies...
... and to Meijer, where he totally lounged in the cart (because he kept slipping, LoL!)
... and gave his approval to the purchase of a ball for his amusement (there's a vid of him and the ball up on FB, if you're friends with me and you missed it)
We then had dinner at our fave restaurant: he didn't get any Thai food, though. A *bit* too soon for that, LMAO! Daddy played scritchy scratchy through the stroller cover fabric with him. He liked it. Can you tell?
I have more cute pix of him, but these capture a LOT of those moments already :) p/s: I do NOT like the new blogger interface!!! Waaaahhhh!!!! :((


  1. LOVE LOVE LOVE Scheels! We go there whenever we visit Colin. And then I spend a lot of money...every single time. There's always something we want there!

    We had Thai food at a little place, but now I can't remember the name of it. Gees, the portions were HUGE!

    Can't believe how fast your little one is growing. :) He is adorable!

  2. I just texted my son--we went to Little Saigon.

  3. Lin, it was our first time at Scheels ... we kinda took one small tour and went back out. Nothing for us there, at this time ... maybe once #2 is out and I'm back to trying to play tennis I can revisit the place :) Or finding a swimsuit thingy for me so I can take the kids to play in the pool.. :)

    btw: Little Saigon's good great food, but give Hawaiian BBQ a try too. They are on the corner of Monroe & Lawrence (just West of Bruns/Chatham). Their Thai menu is awesome, and seriously, best Crab Rangoon in town :)

  4. a "little" place or a "Little" place? :-) their food is good too.

  5. He sure had a fun day seeing everything, the world opened up to him.
    Yup nice blogger interface.

  6. Nice pictures, sure look like fun...
    I see his name is Nova, does he have a second name like some parents give their children?

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…
