Archives for category: Imperfect Blogging

I’ve also updated my comic blog’s design a little. Check it out.

As well as got myself enrolled in ComicSpace.

Where did the weekend go?!

I have shamelessly nominated my own blog under “Best Topical Blog” (since there is no ‘Asian American’ category and I’m not in Asia anymore for the “Best Asian blog” category, so this was the most fitting one I could, well, fit my shameless fat arse into).

Now I am shamelessly asking you to vote for me. Why? So I can get pregnant again. And I’m shameless.


Please vote for me. I promise I’ll be good.

I read quite a lot of feeds. Lokes takes a look at my Google Reader and goes, “I’m not exporting that OPML and stuffing it in your mobile Newsreader!”

Most of the stuff are feeds of friends and what I consider to be the ‘bloggerati’ of Malaysia: Marina Mahathir (outspoken AIDS activist daughter of Malaysia’s ex-PM), Rocky’s Bru (erstwhile editor of Malay Mail), Bibliobibuli (Grand Duchess of the Malaysian literature scene). And then there’s the usual Boing2, Techmeme and Memeorandum-type feeds to keep up with the Joneses.

Ever growing is my list of mommy blogs, all of which inspire me to write and blog more from a mommy’s perspective: Mom on a Wire, Mom-101, Finslippy (and her Alphamom column Wonderland), Breed ’em and Weep, Mamatulip and so many more. I know some of you may cringe at the term ‘mommy blog’ but like it or not, you guys rock!

From today, I’ll start sharing some of my favourite feeds here. Will stick this up on my trusty sidebar if you’re so inclined.

Like you don’t have a million feeds to read yourself already.

I’ve created a WordPress blog for my new strip here. I’m trying to draw one each day. Please visit it regularly!

Perhaps this could be the start of something fabulous.

(or maybe it’s just me)

Happy New Year, all. Here’s to another 365 days of shameless vicarious blogging.

Ooh, I got tagged by Karli, the Fabulous Balancing Juggling Mom on a Wire to participate in a Virtual Cocktail Party by telling you five things you might not know about me.

Hmm. I’m usually quite forthcoming about things. So these must be things I’ve somehow forgotten to mention the last 3.5 years, or have deliberately kept away from you, like:

1. how I used to have CRAZY dandruff and Lokes did too, but the moment we came to the States, it stopped! The only other times I stopped flaking was when I began taking folic acid when I was pregnant. The minute I popped and stopped, those pesky things came back. But now, I’ve not had one piece since a week after we landed in Washington. Isn’t that weird? Get rid of your dandruff! Move to the US!

2. how I still don’t know how to use chopsticks properly. Oh, I cross them obscenely like Sharon Stone in Basic Instinct. But they work, so who cares?

3. I am obsessed with buying stationeries and crafts. I love the smell of new paper. I love looking at the rows and rows of neatly arranged oil paints and brushes. I love love love the aisles and aisles of scrapbooking supplies, and beads of all shapes and sizes, and imagining THE POSSIBILITIES! Oh the beautiful, useless crap I will make!

When I discovered Ben Franklin (this huge crafts supermarket that sells beads and art supplies, yarn and knitting stuff, frames and canvases and easels, fake flowers and tailoring supplies – EVERYTHING UNDER THE SKY you can think of that you’d want to go nuts creative about. How come Malaysia does not have a store like this?!) and Joanne and Michaels, I just…thought I’d died and gone to heaven. It takes every ounce of my resolve every single time, to walk in and not just lie on the floor and make dust angels and then roll around a bit and kiss the ground and kiss the people who work there, and not spend all our money on craft supplies. It’s crazy.

4. I used to be a pretty good squash player. I mean, wore a short skirt, played for my school and everything.

5. I’m a great noodles cook. Anytime you guys wanna have chao mein, let me know. I’m also quite handy with pasta too.

Now, lemme see. I tag Sweetisu, Vien, Simmie, Pelf and Snooki!
