Oh. My. God. I extremely can’t believe that holidays are ending in less than 12 hours! I feel like it has just begun a month ago… Why does time fly so fast? Continue reading
I’m really certain that I’m not a car enthusiast. I don’t know very much about cars. Even during my childhood, I always prefer colour pens and other craft supplies over car toys or miniature auto-mobiles… That said, don’t think of asking me for suggestions on opting for your new car. Definitely I can’t help. Perhaps this last resort might help; I shall just introduce you to the very smart buddy of mine – Google – who will cater to your needs… Lame jokes aside. Continue reading
I was drowning
in a sea
– confused, hopeless and helpless.
The six-hour sleep had resulted in myself feeling blissfully refreshed once my eyes began to observe the light that was coming in through the window and filtered by the black-and-white checked curtains. It was Eid al-Fitr and I gratefully greeted myself with the mandatory Syawal greeting – Happy Eid Mubarak – while my face was still in the just-wake-up mode. Continue reading
In the Name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.
Peace be upon you, my beloved brothers and sisters.
First things first, praises be to Allah for the chance to be the guests of Ramadhan this year. It is indeed the holy month of taqweem Hijrah, which in this month we refrain ourselves from consuming food and drinks and as well as sexual desires from dawn until sunset. During this month, we also strive to practice as much as good deeds that will increase our imaan, taqwa and thawab, and will make us closer to the Almighty, while attempting to battle our nafs and avoid all the sinful behaviours – from the major matters to the minor ones.

2016 has been an adventurous year so far, with a truck load of ups and downs. Taking risks and attempting new notions are always on the list. Those include the matter of fashion, which is beyond my forte at all. Continue reading
Weekend is always exciting! I’ve always been waiting for it every single week. Who does not like weekend though? For some earthlings, it is for spending quality time with family and beloved ones, while for other ones, it is for leisure. Personally, my weekend is always for the latter, as it is the time for me to enjoy my not-so-interesting life to the fullest by doing the things I love, that’s what I consider as leisure.

A sudden rejoicing was present in my soul when a friend of mine gave me Yuna Zarai’s album – Material – as a present. Frankly speaking, I am not a music aficionado but when it comes to this Malaysian singer-songwriter based in New York named Yuna Zarai, I will surely listen to her music. It is due to the fact that I like her unique voice, tone, genre and most vitally her personality! I adore how confident she is with her opinion, belief and how creative she is. I may seem biased, but what-so-ever, I really look up to her as one of my inspirations. Continue reading
Happiness and excitement flowed into my blood when I received a WhatsApp notification informing me that I was accepted to be one of the Dare To Be Different Camp’s participants. Joining a camp was one of my major plans for the first term’s holiday. It was a 3-days-and-2-nights-camp, conducted by the youth team of Hassanal Bolkiah Mosque, who calls themselves ‘Ibadurrahman, which started on the 19th March 2016 and ended on the 21st. It took place at a very mesmerizing and calming place, where nature covered most of it and peace was the exact word to describe it – Tasek Merimbun. Continue reading
“I’m feeling so bored! I don’t know what I should do right now.” Confessed a student who’s currently having a two-weeks-holiday.
Without a doubt, boredom does sometime strike us during our free time – when we have nothing to do. Well, that’s normal. Humans tend to get bored. Unless you’re an alien. So how do we overcome this phenomenon? Just chill and wait for tantalising things to come? That’s not going to happen. We ultimately require an effort to achieve the things we really aim for. In this case, we’re attempting to ditch our so-called-enemy, named boredom. Continue reading
