Day 20 // Ramadan and Shopping

Usually when the remaining of the days of Ramadan is getting less and less, people are more focus on shopping activity. There seems to be a lot of things that we need to buy  and we need to have. Majority of the stores in Malaysia are having a great sales.

As for me, shopping for Eid is focus more on outfit either for me or for my kids. I don’t really like to shop for cookies, If it’s up to me, I would not  even consider buying anything.

Since today I have this itch to grab my DSLR and snapped away, I am going to share a few shoots I took which is not related to shopping at all.

When Will I See You Again?

I used to spend a lot of time on flickr for inspiration and ideas. I haven’t done that in a very long time. Today I decided to jump back into the habit and see what’s new. I was glad that I did. I found so many beautiful photos and the most interesting one would be levitation photography. It looked so much fun and the end result was beautiful.

After seeing all these beautiful images, I am itching to pull out my Canon 50D and start snapping again. It really has been a long time since I played with my Canon. I really miss the feeling of being behind the camera and capture life through my lens.

Day 19 // Ramadan and friendship

I am bless to be surrounded with so many beautiful friends and people. This Ramadan has given me the opportunity to meet some new friends and reacquainted with some old one. I used to be this girl with little or no friends at all, and I don't make friends easily. Little did I know, by smiling more I am able to meet new people and some of them become friends.

Hemm Let it be.. so far thoses words have been a popular theme in my life right now. I am so tired of fighting and in the end I just did what feels right and natural to me.

I  know I am a bit late jumping into Project Love Me this month but I just don’t care. Life has be go go for me and this project really force me to stop and take stock.

Prompt 31: iRenew
We all need a little down time, a bit of rest & relaxation to renew our souls. What do you do to relax? What activities rejuvenate you? How do you find renewal after a stressful day or week?

Journaling:”There are a lot of different things I would love to do to recharge.. These areusually the things I do to make myself calm and relax. Reading, Blogging, Going for a massage and facial, jogging, facebooking, digiscrapping, Tumblr, self portrait and many more. If only I could maintain these activites on a regular basis than things might not seem so stressful after all.”

Prompt 32: When Life Was Slower
Nowadays we seem to be constantly on the move … everything is go, go, go … everything is faster. But not too long ago life moved at a slower pace, like a summer afternoon. We had more time for ourselves. What do you remember about the pace of life when you were a kid? What forms of recreation did you participate in? What activities fulfilled you and brought joy to your soul?

read-web

Journaling:”Reading used to be the only thing that kept me company for so long. I’ve enjoyed this activity started from high school. That was the only escape back then. Now, I still do read but not as often as I would have like.”

Day 17 // Such a long day

Life was a bit hectic today, somehow it feels like such a logng day. I've been hoping from one meeting to another at a non stop frequency. Somehow the non eating ritual during the day doesn't seems to make people slowing down.

I’ve been hunting for font like this

I love fonts. I have been hunting for beautiful and creative fonts like as far as I can remember. Today I would like to showcase this font called Pea Olson from kevinandamanda. I think this font is suitable for journaling.
image
For Project Love Me, I made a layout using iRew kit using the above font. Documenting unfriendly feelings and emotions is not as easy as I thought. It’s can be therapeutic and a bit vulnerable at the same time.

Journaling:”I have my fair share of challenges in my life. Some made me stressful and some made me worry. The most challenging thing I have to face was when I found out that my whole life was a lie. I just don’t know what to believe anymore and I kept questioning everything. Living life on day to day basis was so stressful. Building back what was lost is not an easy Finding yourself without losing yourself is a bit difficult for me”
If you like my choice of fonts, go here for previous selections.

the story of Us

“How'd we end up this way?
See me nervously pulling at my clothes and trying to look busy,
And you're doing your best to avoid me.
I'm starting to think one day I'll tell the story of us,
How I was losing my mind when I saw you here,
But you held your pride like you should've held me.
Oh, I'm scared to see the ending,
Why are we pretending this is nothing?
I'd tell you I miss you but I don't know how,
I've never heard silence quite this loud.

….. “

Day 15 // Ramadan and iftar at the office

Somehow this year, I recieved little invitation for iftar at any hotels. I've missed socializing with people during iftar.












I usually attended my office iftar Ramadan with our Minister every year. I think this year wasn't got a lot of attendance. I prefer the last two years eveng which I think was great.. but I am not really sure why, maybe because of the company or maybe because of the food. The food tonight wasn't that bad but I didn't really eat much.
I think I know why this year feels a bit empty. It was because there's no special segment for "Anak Yatim". I just don't know why they decided to make that a separate event.

behind this so called happy face


* there's a lot of unfinished business that caught up with her future
* taking one day at a time approach might not be a good strategy after all
* it is time to figure out what she wants
* being brave is not enough
* may be a smooth and stress free exit strategy doesn't exist
* she might want to give life a chance

Day 14 // Ramadan and Sunday

Some random things today....
# i spend the day at bicycle shop, doing some maintenance on the old one
# I bought a new one for my eldest
# thinking about buying my daughter a pink bike. Probably will buy one for her birthday.
# i just wonder where does my hours went. It's almost the end of the day and I am still behind with everything
# suddenly I feel a little bit lost and uncertain about many things
