Since a week ago, I started listening to Avril Lavigne: Let go album again and I was totally hooked. I felt like I was transported back to time when everything was so simple and happy. I like feeling this way.

day 299: a love affair with Mr. X

My relationship with Mr. X happened a few weeks ago. The moment I saw Mr. X I just can’t stop thinking about him. I can’t eat, I can’t sleep, I can’t think! The moment Mr X belongs to me, I felt complete, happy and content. I never thought I would felt this way again. I guess I was wrong. When you are meant to be every thing else doesn’t seem to matter. Life is good again. That’s the story of my day 299 – my love affair with Xperia X10.


Reminder: Keeping things simple

Way back in January I've really determine to keep things simple in my life. Cut down on the drama and all the chaos. Now in October, almost at the end of the year, I've found out that my life is slowly going back to normal, boring and simple. I really love it.
Love Sneakers Pictures, Images and Photos
This were what I've accomplished so far:
#1) Enjoying the simple things in life like hot chocolate, coffee, cakes
#2) I really love staying in my house in front of my TV and my computer
Oh sunny day!

#3) Work starting to get normal, I think and I hope for a stress free office environment
#4) I am really thankful for all the technology accessible to me. My life is not the same without it.
#5) Enjoy breathing, either through exercise or just simply clear my mind.

New Moon: the layout

Another new moon related layout featuring Jacob Black.


I just love the Dreamcatcher Kit by Flergs.

here are some of my favorite quotes from new moon
”The hardest part is feeling… out of control. Feeling like I can’t be sure of myself—like maybe you shouldn’t be around me, like maybe nobody should. Like I’m a monster who might hurt somebody.
Jacob Black, New Moon, Chapter 15, p.345”

Yeah, I’ll always be your friend. No matter what you love.
Jacob Black, New Moon, Chapter 18, p.409

I wondered how long this could last. Maybe someday, years from now—if the pain would just decrease to the point where I could bear it—I would be able to look back on those few short months that would always be the best of my life. And, if it were possible that the pain would ever soften enough to allow me to do that, I was sure that I would feel grateful for as much time as he’d given me. More than I’d asked for, more than I’d deserved. Maybe someday I’d be able to see it that way.
Bella Swan, New Moon, Chapter 5, p.124

Kit Showcase: Little Pow Wow

Something new from Wimpychompers Creations called Little Pow Wow. It has Thanksgiving theme. Available at Scrapmatters.

oh boy! what happened to my weight??!!

I realize something, my clothes don’t fit me properly. I really hate when that happen, especially when I can’t button up my jeans. I really really need to take control of my weight ASAP! It’s a high priority project for the last 3 months.
5 things that I should do but has been consistent since the last few months.
#1) Exercise regularly and intensely at least 5 times a week
      Ever since Syawal, I’ve been fallen off the fitness wagon. It’s really hard to get back on and inject exercise in my daily routine when I am tired all the time. I just need to get into  ‘Just do it’ attitude and not think too much about it.
#2) No heavy food after 7 pm
      Substitute with water instead of food.

#3) Drink a lot of water through out the day.
      I just realize that I’ve been slipping down from drinking more water since the fasting month. I really need to get  back into the habit of drinking at least 2 liter of plain water a day
#4) Cut back on sweet food
#5) Move a lot.
      Take at least 10 minutes break after two hours sitting in front of my computer
      Clean the house two times a week instead of once a week
      Take the stairs instead of lift at work

Target: 30 October 2010 –> I can fit into my Levis jeans easily

Let go of the past

, originally uploaded by F. AL-BISHER.
Let go of guilt; it’s okay to make
the same mistakes again.
Let go of obsessions; they seldom
turn out the way you planned.
Let go of hate: it’s a waste of love.
Let go of blaming others: you are
responsible for your own destiny.
Let go of fantasies so reality can come true
Let go of self-pity; someone else may need you
Let go of wanting; cherish what you have
Let go of fear; it’s a waste of faith
Let go of despair; change comes
from acceptance and forgiveness
Let go of the past; the future is here- right now.

~ Kathleen O’Brien

Sosial Media and Us

What is Social Media?

To me social media is connecting with people who cares using technology. There are thousands of social media application available out there but for this entry I would like to focus more on this three social media: Twitter, Facebook and Flickr which you can use not only for personal but also for your organisation.
Introducing Twitter
1. Micorblogging
   It is simple and can only have 140 character per tweet
   It’s asking What are you doing?
2. Real time
   what you update will be broadcast to all your followers in real time
What it looks like?
First thing you should do
1. Create a twitter account
2. Create an Inviting Twitter Profile – your profile photo, your bio and your location
3. Become a follower
5 things you should know when tweeting
#1. Hashtag – # is the way you organize your subject or your thoughts
#2. Mention or Reply – @ you use this symbol when you want to mention either your follower or any other people on Twitter
#3. Retweet – RT – you use this when you want to repeat other people’s tweet
#4. Shorten URL – it’s important to shorten your URL when your tweets are more than 140 character. example
#5. Photo – you can tweet photos either using flickr, photobucket or twitpic. If you tweet using Tweetdeck or Hootsuite, they will have a photo sharing website to host the photo
