Today is all about you ... Happy Fifteen birthday

My darling Hazwan, you changed a lot in the last twelve months. Today at the age of fifteen you already know what you want. But most of them either involve with sports or musics. I hope that no matter which area of expertise you want to involve with always refer to Quran and Hadith as your guide. And remember that I love you so much and I will always love you.


23.10.2014 - Happy Birthday to my dear son, may all of your dreams come true.

All I want for you is..
 - be all that you can be
 - be the best at what ever that you do
 - be yourself
 - what ever you do in life never go beyond what stated in the Quran and Hadith
 - Remember Allah always
 - and remember me always
 - be good to others
 - enjoy what you do, love what you do and if possible get paid for it
 - work hard and work smart
 - be kind to others especially to your brothers and sister
 - love yourself and take a good care of it
 - eat well and live a healthy lifestyle
 - let pray and du'a be your weapon and tools 
 - let Quran and Hadith be your guide

And remember I will always love you no matter how old you get.

Notes: I can't believe that 13 years ago today this happened---> The iPod line was announced by Apple on October 23, 2001.  The little gadget that really changed the world!

Four Simple Goals before 2015

I am not sure if Elsie will bring back the 4 simple goals challenge  this year but I decided to do them anyway just because I love list and I love making goals. I did play along in 2010 , 2012 and  2013 and it was so much fun. I love a little reminder to take stock of the things I really want to accomplish before the end of the year. I know I can do this - Short term and achievable goals. 

{Note: I pick up the rules from last year challenge. If Elsie change the rules this year, I will update them}
"If you want, here are the "rules":
1. Choose simple goals that will make your life richer and happier on a daily basis. Choose things you may not otherwise get done but are not difficult to accomplish. 
2. Do not choose result oriented goals. Choose activity oriented goals. For example, instead of "lose 10 pounds", choose something like "eat fresh fruits and vegetables every day". Get what I'm saying? Positive actions instead of just the end result! 
3. Choose personal goals you believe will truly make your life richer just by doing them! They can be daily, weekly or one time experiences. 
4. Choose a reward for each goal as it is accomplished! It can be a small or large reward—it's up to you. 
5. Blog about your goals, each one as you achieve it and a big post when they are all finished before the new year! Be sure to leave us a link to your blog in the comments section. I'll be sure to share my experiences in a follow-up post before the new year." excerpt from A Beautiful Mess blog.

These are my 4 simple goals before 2015

4 Simple Goals before 2015

#1. Journal 3 times weekly. Since this year my One Little Word journey is all about writing and journalling, it's a good idea to end the year with more writing that when I started.

#2. Play with my son outside of the house at least once a week. I have become one of those parents who shoved an iPad to the kid to shut them up. I am making the next two months of this year to at least try and play with my son outside of the house, running and jumping around just for the fun of it.

#3. Read at least 3 more books before end of the year. I notice that this month is not a reading month for me. I would be lucky if I could finished two books. So I am going to make my personal mission to at least read three new books before the year ends. The more the better but I am not going to set myself up to fail. Plan for success is a good way to feel good about yourself.

#4. Do Insanity workout at least once a week and T25 workout at least times a week. Keeping up with my workout schedule has become a challenge lately. I get bored easily with the same routine and it's easier for me to ignore my workout appointment if I didn't put the schedule workout in my planner.

Do you still have any unfinished goals? If you do and want to make this a fun and challenging goals, come and join in the fun. It's only 4 goals and we still have two months to do it.

5 things Confession of a Blogger [ #BloggerConfessions ]

Confession of a blogger

I came across a blog post about confession of a blogger by Megan, The Nerdy Girlie, which I think is a great idea. I have be blogging a really long time, way back when blogging was just a web log nothing more nothing less. Without further ado here are my confession as a blogger.

5 things Confession of a Blogger

#1. I blog because I want to preserve memory. 
I was a scrapbooker long before I became a blogger. So when I heard about web log technology, I immediately sign up with the intention of keeping a memory of myself and family accessable anytime and anywhere. Little did I know that one day blogging will bloom and turn into a multimillion dollar business. [I secretly wish I was that lucky to land a multimillion readers world wide ... Heheh].

#2. I blog because I have something to say

I never see myself as a writer. But when I started blogging I do have to think like a writer. I am responsible with what kind of content I wrote. 

#3. I blog because I want share a little bit of my life and my creative expression

Suddenly I have this canvas in front of me to do what I please. With this tool I decided to share my scrapbook pages and my photos right here in this blog 

#4. I have never wanted to aggressively self promote my blog but getting notice is a warm welcome

With social media grow and blooming each day, self promoting becomes so much easier. I secretly wanted to self promote but somehow this technique can cause a lot of stress in my part. I need to learn to art of self promoting..

#5.Most of the time I have no idea what to write about.

This is not a good habit to have. Most of the successful blogger out there will tell you to plan ahead and have at least a month worth of editorial blog post schedule. I wanted so bad to do that but somehow it didn't turn out the way I imagine. 

So what are your blogger confession? I know you are dying to share!
