Day Dream and random weekend

What a day! I’ve been very busy from the moment I got up early this morning until night. So many things to do and so many project to get started. I would share what I’ve been up too later. For now I would like to showcase this layout I made using a new kit from Sunshine Studio Scraps.
This is a photo of me and my mother during our Eid celebration. It has been a long time since we have the opportunity to take photo together.

white space in your daily life

I like the idea of white space. Having a white space in your digital layout also can have a great impact on your layout.you.complete.me
I read this article on having a white space in your daily life. It’s an interesting idea. Fore more details on this check out the zen habits website.
Some ideas:

  • Breathe. Simply take a couple minutes between tasks, meetings, anything that you do, to breathe. After a meeting, for example, return to your desk and just sit still for a couple minutes, focusing on your breath going in and out. When you get home, pause and breathe. When you’re done with a task on the computer, close everything and breathe, before starting on the next task. This creates space between tasks and allows you to focus on each one.
  • Schedule. Don’t overschedule. Leave space on your schedule, between tasks, instead of putting things back-to-back. The space gives you time to go between tasks, to recover, to refocus, to breathe.
  • Projects. Do fewer projects at a time. Instead of juggling a bunch of projects at once, try to do one for as long as you can before switching to the next (sometimes you need to switch because you’re waiting on information or on someone else to do something). If you can, take a short break between each project — as long as you can afford.
  • Sit. Start your day with the white space of just sitting still for 10 minutes. It can be a meditation session, or simply sitting still with a cup of coffee or tea. If you like this, try putting it in the middle and end of your day as well.
  • Remove clutter. Pick a few important things on your desk, or in your home, and remove the rest. This will give you visual space and create a more peaceful atmosphere.
  • Savor. Slow down and savor everything you eat, everything you do. Breathe before you take each bite, and enjoy each bite.” taken from zen habits.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
I think I might try these suggestions. Living in a high speed life isn’t good for you. You might miss a lot if you don’t press the pause button and try to savor and enjoy the little things.

Especially for Newbies: getting started

Ever wonder how to make this beautiful digital scrapbook layout you saw in this blog? Then today is your lucky day. I would like to share a few tips on how to start your digital scrapbooking adventure.
#1) Positive attitude is a must 
#2) Have digital photos in your computer

7th syawal and i am still at my parents' house

I am really enjoying my stay here. Don't have to worry about work, getting kids to school, putting food on the table or getting everybody to wake up early in the morning for subuh prayer. I can be the daughter.. Hehehe.. I don't think i am ready to go back to my daily routine. I love this town, i love this people and i love the economy here. It's a good place to retire and enjoy life.

the killing of Datuk Sosilawati Lawiya

This  is the hottest news in Malaysia right now. Every where you go people are talking about it. The internet and facebook is fill with this shocking news.

Sosilawati murder: Forensic team finds more bone pieces




Sosilawati murder: Police preparing charges, consider case solved

My thoughts:
#1) People are getting crazier. A lot of rage and not enough love
#2) there is no value in human life any more
#3) people are getting more materialistic
#4) she was from my hometown, most of the people here knew her.
#5) i feel sympathy for the deceased and three other victims that died with her
#6) she was murdered during the month of Ramadhan. Things like this shouldn’t happened during this holly month.  

#7) this makes me question the safety of my family. Are we safe? A lot of crimes happening every where. Is it because of the economy, the weather, the government, the high level of stress, the greed or just pure evil? hemmmm….

4th day of Syawal, yearly ritual and totally awesome

the 4th day of Syawal, we went to JB to visit a few relatives here. It's the yearly ritual that we did as a family. Last year we came here to visit my grandmother but this year she wasn't here. She passed away early this year. It isn't the same without her. While waiting for the whole family to gather, I stole a few minutes to make this layout.

Kids and Aidilfitri

It’s really amazing to watch how easily kids makes friends, how easily they adapt, how easily they can forgive and forget.

Naturally they are the one who are so excited to celebrate Aidilfitri. That means they get to ware their new outfit, eat foods and get a lot of money.   raya001 raya003 this is me posing in front of the camera  with my kids, my nieces and nephews . it was so much fun.
