Feature Blogger: Millimilo

This is my second time doing this. I did this segment last month with Firzara’s Fairyland. I kinda enjoy it, getting to know fellow bloggers who inspire me. I think I might be doing this on a monthly basis.
I am very lucky to have meet her during our last year meet up at Mid valley. She is very cute and sweet in person. Full of life and energy. I am so happy that she is willing to do this little interview with me.
The name: Kamiliah a.k.a millimilo (checkout why)
The blog:
A Law Student from UIA.
millimilo04 (I think we look cute together.. heheh… )
Q&A Session
#1. I notice you've mention that you study law. What kind of law do you study?
In IIUM, there's only two types of law; whether civil or shariah law. I only take civil law because shariah law in IIUM requires excellence in Arabic language. I take laws course just because I love reading and I’m not really good in Math and Science. I guess so. Open-mouthed smile
#2. How do you describe your life as a student in the 21st century?
Hectic and have lots of distraction. Internet is the most distractive one. Studying law requires lots of reading, memorizing and also some lawyerly skill. Quite tough. I can't wait anymore to finish my student life.
(I totally forgot that now student has to deal with Internet. I agreed it is very distracting.)
#3.  I love your vlog. It looks real and energetic. What inspire you to do vlog?
My friends from UMVC (United Malaysian Vlogger Channel) youtube/UMVC inspire me to start vlogging. It's really nice seeing them consistently uploading their vlogs and they have lots of style. Seeing them make me wanna try become vlogger after long time been blogging. I'm just an amateur. I wish I can be more creative in my vlog.
(Wow! This is totally new to me. I didn’t know you have UMVC. Interesting!) Check out her vlog here.
#4.  What are your 5 essential things you bring with you everywhere.
Depends on places.
Usually if go to class, I always bring my netbook, hand phone, purse, organizer, lotion and Polo (a must thing)
If I hangout outside campus, I always bring all stuff above including my make-up kit. =)
#5. 5 random surprising facts about you that your friend might not know.
  • Every morning, I always buy 1 Dutch Lady strawberry milk before class, my favourite.
  • I cut my hair twice a year and I usually cut my own hair myself in front of mirror.
  • Currently, I prohibit myself from dating anybody because I am not ready for any commitment.
  • I love to sew plush toy or hand-made stuff during my free time.
  • I don't use any skin care product because I don't have skin problem. Not yet. =)
(You are one lucky lady. No skin problem. ooo I’m so jealous Open-mouthed smile)
#6. How do you manage your time between studying law, blogging and having fun?
Actually, I don't actively blogging. I rarely update my blog. Only once a week. Sometimes, if I have free time on weekdays and not busy with exams, I just type something and posted it right away. Usually, weekday’s night, I spent my time to finish my homework and do some revisions. Sometimes I go to library. On weekend, I spent my time with my friends; hangout and having fun. Actually, I’m not really good in managing my time. Hope you can give some tips. =)
(The only tips I can give you is prioritize and schedule your blog time at lease once every two days. And blog at the same time every time. Than only it can become a habit.)
#7. Where do you see yourself 5 years from now?
Be somebody wife and a mom. Winking smile I want to have my own handmade boutique or open a nursery. Because I don't want to be lawyer.
( This is a surprise to me. I thought 5 years from now you will be one cute hot shot lawyer……Smile)
I found these cute doodling while browsing millimilo’s picsa album. So so cute!!!!!
That’s all for now. I hope you enjoy my little interview with Millimilo. Don’t forget to send her lots of love here.  Thank you again for doing this with me. Keep on blogging girl!

America’s Next Top Model at our office! Really!! Anyone up for the challenge?

I've spend the whole evening discussing concept and design for our new portal with my team. Wow! It was so tiring! Thinking outside the box is not easy. Making others think outside the box is also exhausting. I can’t believe that I was beat up at the end of the day. We are amateur web designer trying to be professional. Somehow this whole proses feel like the journey of America’s Next Top Model. Finding the supermodel, in my case finding or creating the super model portal! At the end of the day is market a product that people want to buy.
There are a lot of example out there that are clean and simple design which we can lift. The challenge is to make the non gov. design look like gov. and to make our portal different than any other portal out there! Here are a few examples that captured my eyes
#1) from 4template
#2) Winchester ammunition – heheh I know it’s a gun website but I really like the look and feel of this portalimage
#3) America’s Next Top Model
Here are four reason why I think upgrading our portal is like America’s Next Top Model
#1)  Research, research, research
In other words you must know you field :
ANTM – fashion, practice, know designers, makeup artist, camera man, how to portray your body
Portal – design, what is pleasant to the eye, the tools, giving public what they want, know your audience, know your stakeholder, sharpen the skills
When you want something so badly, you will do anything to get it. You will forget about fear, you will forget about getting home early and you will forget about eating. Basically you will sleep, dream and obsessing about it all the time.
#2) It’s all about reaching out
ANTM: you can take a pretty picture, but the audience don’t feel a thing. They don’t buy what you are selling
Portal: you can have the best and beautiful portal but if you don’t have useful and amazing content people won’t come back
#3) Being technically perfect isn’t good enough. You must put your personality , heart and soul into it.
ANTM: Once people can’t feel or see your personality , you will not stand out from the crowd. Personality makes a model
Portal: It goes the same here. There are hundreds and thousands of portal out there. Without personality (what makes us different than the rest) we will just be another portal
#4) you have to do your best every time
ANTM: it doesn’t matter what life throws at you, you have to bring it every time you are in front of the camera. What ever challenge that you have to face, you can’t let it show.
Portal: you have to be the best 24/7. The same goes here, what ever challenge that you have to face, you can’t let it show on the portal.

These are all the inspiring quotes I found at tumblr!

Good night my beautiful and sweet “haniz*eyecandy* readers.

random Tuesday, a tagline and Parmapetit font

* I arrived late at work today due to horrific traffic jam at the highway
* I intend to do a little bit planning but I ended up in a long discussion the whole morning and afternoon
* And continue with another discussion in the evening
* I decided to make these as a tagline for my development team in 2011. Things have to change either they way we do things and the way we think.
* This year is going to be a bit tough and challenging at work, personal life and financially
* Malaysia is changing and I am not sure if is for the better or for the worst!  All around me things get a bit tough, expensive and the sense of security is getting lower and lower. The price is higher especially for food and crime rate is also out of control.
* I just realize that in today’s world , being technically perfect is not enough . You have to put in your character, heart and soul into anything that you do. That what makes what you do unique and different than anybody else. * font for today Pramapetit. I used this font for the above tagline
* making a lemonade out of theses lemons is getting more and more challenging.
* I am so thankful that I have this blog to record my random thoughts, my fear and my concern.
* I am also thankful for my reader and other fellow blogger for making my life a little bit brighter with your presence and your blogs.

something cute and silly to share

I found something cute at my other youtube account. I think I’ve created this account 3 years ago and I totally forgot about it. Than a few months ago, I created another youtube account just to keep all my favorite playlist.

She was so cute.. and young….

Just another Manic Monday, I wish it was Sunday!!!

Hello Monday!!! Hehehe I think it’s a bit late for me to wish happy Monday. My Monday started with a bang! And as usually I’ve managed to piss off somebody early in the morning. I really hate when that happened. Life shouldn’t be this stressful. I felt like I don’t have the freedom to do what I love and to my job with passion.

Enough about that. Now I would like to share something I’ve created for cik betty.


This is my first attempt making a header for someone other than me and my children. I am a bit nervous because people taste are different and very subjective. I am glad that she like them. Thanks girl for giving me a chance to explore something different. Apparently we share a lot of things in common. Maybe one day we could meet in real life. Happy blogging girl!!!
