salam raya!

assalamualaikum wbt.

lagi seminggu dah nak raya. kejap nye masa berlalu. as usual, aku pasrah menyerah sebab lab masih belum setel. i have a few in mind, lepas raya ada kursus, kalau clash dengan hari laki balik kampung, memang tak balik kampunglah nampaknya tahun ni. wuwuwuwuu..

oh ye, this year memang tak balik kampung untuk raya sebab laki kerja. aku pula insyaaAllah kerja jugaklah hari rabu khamis jumaat tu. sedih? tak lah, sebab rancangannya mak and abah ada lagi kat kl until 1st raya petang tu.

cuma tak adalah kemeriahan raya tu sangat. tapi kita sebagai orang dewasa ni, apelah erti raya tu sangat. sebab saudara mara boleh berjumpa time tak raya jugak. and jimat duit raya, boleh gitu? hahahahaha (gelak jahat). and tahun ni sebab tak beraya sangat, baju raya pun ala kadar je. hari tu ada beli baju kat dina, so itulah baju raya i. ingat nak pakai baju nikah time raya nanti. fefeeling muat lettew. tengok macam mana nanti.

persiapan raya macam kuih raya pun bebiasa je. ada jugak beli kuih sebalang dua. buat kuih sebalang dua. hari tu geng kuih raya buat kuih raya ramai-ramai kat rumah azmilia. memang bestlah walau ngantuk dan banyak askar serender. dapat lah dua tiga balang jugak, alhamdulillah. serius this year kuih raya sikit je. sebab last year memang banyak berlebih. plus, this year, memang aku and laki dah sebat sebalang kuih raya habis dah pun! konsepnya, makan kueh raya fresh lagi best so balun je walaupun tak raya lagi.. hahaha.

dalam kita meriah nak buat persiapan raya tu, jom jom lah kita tingkatkan amal ibadah kita ye! especially nak last-last puasa ni. selalunya, malam 10 terakhirlah kita terbabas. sibuk buat kuih raya, sibuk beli baju raya, sibuk menjahit, sibuk segala selain beribadah. peringatan untuk diri sendiri juga tu. hehe.

itu sahaja untuk kali ni. salam ambang aidilfitri untuk kamu semua. :)

13 going to 30?

assalamualaikum wbt.

alhamdulillah, kita dah berpuasa selama enam hari dan alhamdulillah, aku dah mencapai 30 tahun this year. Ya Allah, 30 tahun dah usia aku. apa pencapaian yang aku peroleh sepanjang aku hidup selama 30 tahun ni?

what happy people don't do. 

alhamdulillah juga aku rasa pencapaian aku not bad (untuk aku). mungkin tak sebanyak macam orang lain, tapi aku rasa okay. aku rasa aku semakin matang sebab aku akui, memang banyak dugaan hidup yang aku lalui sepanjang 30 tahun aku hidup ni.

aku rasa nak strive for life after graduation in 2006 adalah susah. maybe because my life is not according to plan. but setelah beberapa tahun, dan sambung belajar, aku rasa segala usaha yang aku dah buat selama ini berbaloi. dulu aku memang kadang-kadang menyalahkan takdir dan rasa hidup tak gembira, but now i understand that everything Allah planned for me before has its own good. aku tak rasa rugi langsung dengan cabaran yang aku hadapi.

dengan cabaran belajar, cabaran untuk ttc, dan cabaran-cabaran lain now i feel happy to face all that. tak rasa terbeban pun sebab aku rasa aku boleh mengawal diri aku, dan dari diri sendiri aku rasa aku boleh handle benda-benda di sekitar aku. in fact, aku selalu ingat, even aku rasa susah pun, ada orang lain yang berganda susah dari aku, yang cabarannya lagi hebat dari aku. jadi nikmat apa lagi yang aku nak dustakan?

and age is just a number.

so untuk aku, no matter how old am i, and how life treats me, as long as i'm happy, i am okay. i am thankful because i have a great husband, great friends around me, great family who supports me along the way, great food, great home, great everything!

happy 30th birthday to me.

and of course the gratitude goes to mom, sebab melahirkan aku di dunia ni 30 tahun dulu.

love you and love you all.

assalamualaikum wbt.

currently reading;

experiment yourself

assalamualaikum wbt. 
obviously i copied and pasted this one, because i am to lazy to change the font. by the way, would love to share with you guys. just try to experiment your lifestyles and see what happens. 
Take your pick.
1) Absolutely no social media 
For a day. A week. A month. A year. It’s up to you. The idea is to realize how much your life can improve without being glued to your phone or computer.
2) Throw away your crap
I bet there’s a ton of unwanted clutter in your room. Take the leap and get rid of them. It will feel slightly uncomfortable at first, but you won’t miss them. I promise.
Aside from clutter, you may want to consider getting rid of something valuable even. It could be your first car or your ex-girlfriend’s photo. The attachment could be weighing you down in life.
3) Go all out with a good deed
Don’t just drop a few coins for the homeless and call it a day. Go further. Buy them food. Talk to them. Give them a hug even. This is to help you know how real human life is and that we’re pretty much all one.
4) Buy an impromptu ticket to somewhere
If there was one impulse buy I approve of, it’d be buying a travel ticket. So do it. Travel is always exciting.
5) And travel alone
Do it alone though. That’s one awesome experiment on being independence right there. If you want to step it up, go to an exotic place you aren’t familiar place. You’ll return home grateful, guaranteed.
6) Take a break from your unstable relationship
If your relationship is on the rocks, then the solution is to take time apart and get some space so that you can start thinking in the right state of mind. This is obvious, but hard to do as feelings get in the way. Try it out. Your relationship will improve after that (and that may mean calling it quits).
7) Talk to a random stranger
Guy, girl, attractive person whose number you want to get, it doesn’t matter. Even if you simply smile at somebody passing by, checking their reaction alone is a fun experiment in the field of opening up others in life.
8) Walk
And make it a great distance! Forget public transport or driving where you can only see faces. Walk and appreciate your surroundings. It can be tiring, but it’d be worth the insights you gain from whatever you see. If you want to take a step further with this, do it without your mobile phone.
9) Write a personal blog post or Facebook status
Get out of your comfort zone and share a personal story. Tell others how you’ve changed and what you’ve learnt. Be vulnerable. The number of subsequent likes, shares and comments you get will make you think and grow.
10) Tell somebody you’re grateful for them
Do it on the spot. Do it even though they didn’t do you a favour or anything like that. The power of gratitude alone is best expressed when you show it to somebody who means something to you.
11) Go on a juice fast/vegetarian diet
I’m not an expert on eating green only or juicing, but I’m sure that’d be some good results in terms of overall health and energy. Just do your research. This experiment would especially work wonders if you’re constantly eating garbage like MacDonalds.
12) Absolutely no internet
Want to take it beyond a social media sabbatical? Go all out and stave from the internet. Who knows? You may find a new, offline passion or form better habits, like reading.
13) No coffee
Tons can be said on the benefits of abstaining from coffee. If you strongly rely on it in the morning, try something new. Your health, state of mind and mode of work can change for the better.
14) Don’t read the news at all
I personally don’t read the news because I find that most of it is just upsetting. Try being out of the “know” for once. Your overall happiness may improve. And you may realize how much you really don’t need to know.
15) Ask him or her out
No more mind games or whatever. Romance isn’t about games or trying to play it right. That is an experiment waiting to fail. Just ask them out and see what happens. Get it over with.
16) No videogames 
Just like social media and the internet, it’s worth a test to stave off the controller and online gaming worlds.
17) Send in an extremely different and creative résumé
Yep. Defy all the rules in the application process. I’ve read of people sending in résumés in the form of cups and even cereal boxes. That’s a sure way of standing out amongst hundreds of boring emails and documents.
18) Get drunk and create art
Many acclaimed artists have said that their moment of inspiration comes when they get “high”. Perhaps you’d be able to create your best art too when you’re in an elevated state.
Note: I’ll never condone taking drugs for the sake of art. I do think it’s okay to drink a little excessively in your own environment though. Still, please do everything in moderation. You know yourself best.
19) No alcohol
You’re just going to have a find another way to kick back and relax!
20) Offend somebody
Because sometimes, you shouldn’t hold back your beliefs or principles just for the sake of avoiding trouble. Stand up for yourself instead, even if that means offending somebody.
21) Try living alone
Let’s see how well you do when you try to take care of yourself and your shelter. The experience alone will do wonders for you.
