not jobless, but it didn't last

I have been meaning to update this blog's tagline for a while now, because, hey! I wasn't jobless anymore! I landed a part time massage therapist job in June, started for real in September (you know, after Nev) ...
... and within 4 months that position has been eliminated.

Yup. Guess who got served a 30-day notice this week?

I was assured it's a "purely financial decision", I was last in and therefore first out, blah blah blah.


I won't go into details about it, but let's just say that many balls were dropped, and it's really frustrating that I was finally just about to start pushing for making my presence known within the organization, and that's when they cut me loose.



Now to start the job hunt all over again.

At least this time all I need to do to my resume is add a new entry in the "Previous Experience" section. Still gotta cast a wide net, compose cover letters, make some calls, attend some interviews, and land something else within those 30days, otherwise the kids get pulled out of daycare and I will then go nuts.


In the meantime... Here's Nev wishing you a happy 2013!!


  1. You'll get there! It's never fun (unless it is) then that would be a little weird :/

    Just keep your head held high and I think that is the cutest baby picture ever!

  2. Oh, bummer. I sure hope you get something you like soon. :)

  3. I recently went through this with nannying. It's left me horribly depressed, as I was attached to the kids. Bloghopping and happy I found you! Keep on keeping on!

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…
