Goodbye 2017, welcome 2018!

Personally, 2017 was a year of new discoveries and challenges for me, perhaps it was a year of revelation. 

In 2017, I came to realize my full potential as well as my limitations. I had stopped running from the reality and faced the cold-hard truth instead. I tasted both saccharine sweet moments as well as the bitter ones. I had swallowed both and learned to live with it. I also discovered that there were so much more to this life than meets the eye.

For better or for worse, 2017 had made me stronger.

Knife

Hello peeps!
I guess this is not the best way to make my comeback to this page after a 9-month hiatus. But well, I guess this is exactly where I want to be at this moment.
I came across this old song 'Knife' in one of the CDs that I found in my car. It's so ironic that I keep on repeating that song in my car on my way to and off work almost everyday. It felt so true, especially when it comes to the chorus part:
Cuts like a knife How will I ever heal
I'm so deeply wounded
Knife
Cuts like a knife
You cut away the heart of my life

When I pretend
Wear a smile to fool my dearest friends
I wonder if they know
It's just a show

Little did I knew that yesterday my world crumbles, again. It is caused by the same knife that had stabbed me at the same spot, and yet the pain remained just as deep 😢 
But I still got to wake up, put on a fake smile and face the world today, as if nothing ever happened despite the fact that I'm dying inside right now...


A Fresh Beginning

Hello everybody!!

As of February 2017, I'm no longer a student sob..sob..sob. Alhamdulillah, I'd completed the 3-semester course and had report back to work early this month. See how fast the time flies when you are having fun? Ahaks! So this is it. No more surviving each day in jeans and T-shirts, carrying the backpack around campus. I'm now back to work, back to the real working world..hush!

Well, truth to be told, while I was enjoying my time with my studies and new friends, I think the 15 months break from the office is just enough for me. Not later, not sooner. 

I'm so grateful that the opportunity to pursue my studies came during the time when my motivation was very low, the environment had become so toxic and I literally had to drag myself to work.

So, the study leave was very much (read: desperately) needed. I enjoyed my student life - making new friends, interesting discussions with the lecturers, undertaking the tasks and most importantly, I really value the nove…

Welcome 2017!

Happy New Year!
Well, let's start the new year by reflecting of what had been happening to me last year. The year 2016 had been quite a roller coaster ride for me. There were a lot of great things happening to me in 2016 and of course there were some that were not so good. I'm not complaining though, because I guess that is life - we will have our share of good times and of course the opposite. It is the thing that hurt you the most that will teach you the greatest lessons in life. In order for us to appreciate the food is to be hungry first, right? 
That is why I don't really agree when some people said things like "Oh let's hope that 2017 will be a better year" and that kind of stuff. I mean, it is not the new year, the change of numbers at the end that will change our future, or our fate. It all depends on us - we are the one who are supposed to make the change. It's got nothing to do with the year etc.
But, I do agree that the new year is like the beginn…

Cuti-cuti Malaysia: Fifty4Ferns Janda Baik

Salam uols,

Ini adalah entri super tertunda kerana kejadian ini berlaku lebih sebulan yang lalu. Tetapi demi mengambil semangat cuti persekolahan yang baru bermula, mungkin timingentri ini adalah tepat sekali! (*statement sedapkan hati!)

Ini kisah short family vacation kami pada 15 - 17 April lepas di Janda Baik, Pahang. Kisahnya,MH super busy dengan kerja, sampaikan weekend pun tak lekat di rumah. Jadinya, bila anak-anak mula keluarkan soalan seperti "Dah laaama kita tak tidur hotel, kan?" (kali terakhir bulan Januari lepas semasa Pak Ucu mereka menikah) dan bila Ustazah di tadika mereka bertanya, "Cuti sekolah pergi mana?" dan jawapan innocentsi anak adalah "Saya pergi Alamanda!" - maka tercari-carilah kami kesempatan (dan kewangan heheh) untuk bawa mereka bercuti.

We wanted to go somewhere exciting but not too far as we were not up for a long drive. Then, the place must be suitable for family activity and last but not least, percutian sederhana, sesuai de…

Spread the Love - Free Breakfast!

Spread the Love team is back!!
After we got 'disconnected' for so long, the Spread the Love crew is back spreading happiness and kindness at the unexpected times and place in our community. Yeay! All thanks to Shiefa, a.k.a. The Chief who re-activate the team through a new WhatsApp group - now we have more friends getting on board =)

This time around, we go on with our project based on our 'Impian' or wish. All of us were to share our wish to bring happiness to the subject matter which is close to our hearts  and the rest of the team will help out in what ever possible ways that we could think of in order to make the wish comes true - one at a time. We are hoping that through this random act of kindness, they know that someone cares about them. Everybody needs a little love, right? =)

About my wish...
For the past couple of months, I had been frequenting the hospitals - public hospitals to be exact, where so people coming there everyday. With the stream of people coming th…
