#thursday3 [06.02.2014]

Some people doesn't really like facts and some people doesn't really like when I am telling the truth. #thursday3 is all about facts and all about telling the truth. If this not in your cup of tea , you can always hit the cross button at the top (just saying).
Anyway, the experience for me is to always to take stock of my life, reflect and grow. It's one of the way for me to see my life and myself weekly and document it in a way that is fun and manageable for me.



#1. I have been accused of many things. It's still amaze me that some people immediately assume that I am talking about them. They have no idea what my life is all about and they immediately have this preset mind about me.
#2. I am really happy to welcome new member to the family, my niece. She was so cute and adorable. Her name is Aishah Azzahra. Congratulation to my brother!
#3. I am excited that this week is also another short work week for me. I did take one more day off and I've been enjoying every minute of it. I am already looking forward to another long break (which I am not sure when.. oh boy!)

"Think about it this way…If you take one picture and write down three facts each week — at the end of the year you’ll have more than 50 photos of yourself and 150 facts about what life has been like. It would make such an epic All About Me book — and most of the work is already done."excerpt from

Follow along each week using the hashtag #thursday3 dan tagged me @hanizeyecandy. I want to see your selfie and read about you.

#thursday3 mini album

I have so much fun taking weekly selfie and doing #thursday3 every Thursday. It's like taking a pause in the middle of the week and reflect about my life weekly.

At first I only intend to keep this project on my blog but then I discover Project Life Mini album, it's simple and it's manageable. The moment I slipped my photos and journal card into the album I am totally hooked!
I just love this Kiwi album from the Project Life mini album line. I got this from Papier store at the Curve, Damansara. The price was a little bit expensive there, I think I can get it cheaper either from or from Scrap-n-Crop online store.

This is what I got so far...
I haven't really decorate any journal card or title card. I have been planning to put #thrusday3 as the title but I still have got around to it yet. The quotes from Greys Anatomy I found on Pinterest.


I just realised that in December I took #selfie mostly in portrait mode. It took a lot of afford, editing and adjusting to print them on 4x6 paper. From now on I am going to take selfie on landscape mode to make the process more simple. I can just print them directly on 4x6 paper and slip it into the pocket.


I am so excited to see this album grow and progress until end of the year. I am so hoping to see myself getting slimmer each week. That's definitely will be a plus in my book.


Notes: My goal for this week is to do T25 Beta Core Cardio [2 times] and Speed 2.0 [2 times]. Drink Herbalife tea 2 litter a day and one glass of herbalife shake every morning. As much as possible avoid eating after 8:00pm. Drink at least 2 litter of plain water on top of 2 litter herbalife tea

Three things // Places I would love to visit

One of my action plan for my one little word is to find a journaling prompt and write about it. So today I choose a prompt related to three things, and I would like to write about three places I would love to visit.

I was at awe when I heard of a family of six successfully arrived in Malaysia after 155 days road trip from UK. I thought that was cool and they were living my dream. I do remember when I was a little girl, I always dream of travelling the world. The first thing that crossed my mind was how did they find the time to do so. 
It has been a long time since I thought about travelling. After settling down, get married and have kids, those dreams seems to fade away. 

Since this year, my one little word is to write, I am going to put down into words about my dream of travelling and maybe one day all of this can come true. If I have the time and the money I would love to travel around the world - not in 80 days but probably for a year. I don't want to rush the journey, it's not the destination that is important to me but the experience of meeting new people, the culture, all kind of weathers, the food, the scenery and appreciate Allah's creation. 


If I am not able to have round the world road trip, there are three places that I would love to visit - they are....

#1. Rome  

What can I say, Rome the capital city of Italy. The place where you can still experience Renaissance and Baroque erra. 

#2. Paris  

Who wouldn't love to visit this romantic place, Eiffel Tower. The experience of actually going there triumph any imagination or preset mind that I might have. 

#3. Cairo 

I would love to see Pyramid , live with my own two eyes. By seeing the photos I can felt the energy and hardship people back then to make a mark. Thousands of years ago, people have this desire to leave a legacy, make a mark and memory keeping. Pyramid is one of the largest memory keeping out there. This monument leave a story of what life were like back then.

May one day my dream to travel the world will come true.

This is my Digital Project Life for Week 05

Week 05 // Project 365

I am loving my week so far. Making lists of things I would like to accomplish in February really help me focus. I have been distracted a lot lately and when I do, I waste a lot of precious time.
My mantra for this month is Simple=Done. Let go of all the toxic people, toxic relationship and toxic thoughts from my life. Take a deep breath and breathe...


day 027Start of a new week , week 5. Even though today is Monday we are already pack with planned activities like Monthly Assembly.


day 028 This is the view from my office. I love the unique design of the garden. Too bad we spend most of the time in the office, coop up in a building. We should take the time to go outside and appreciate the view.


day 029 Nice reflection of my office on the next building. It's hard to get a decent shot when the sun is right behind you. I took two photos, one of me and one of the building and I merge those two together to get this look. 


day 030 - Such a busy busy day. I thought that this year I don't have to worry about doing things that is not my area of expertise but before January ends, I got suck back into that craziness again. I just don't get it how people can just abandon their responsibilities and just left. 


day 031- Love my holiday. Suddenly I have the urge to cook. Maybe because I put living a healthy life as my goal this week. I love garlic and I can't get enough of it. Even though I don't eat them raw, at least I put a lot of them in my cooking.


day 032 I still have no idea how he search for Upin and Ipin video on youtube. He doesn't know how to type yet.


day 033 - The one thing I love the most is watching a baby sleep. So peaceful and calm. I do not dare to wake him or even steal a kiss.


These are my life in photos for week five. So many things happened and if I don't take the time to document them I might miss a lot. I still believe when you took the time to document the every day and the good things that happened in your life, you will be more grateful. Just saying.

Do you join Project 365 this year?
 If you do linked up in the comment, I would love to
see your work and a glimpse of your life in 2014
