20 things you can do this Ramadan


Ramadan is only about two weeks away and I am excited to meet Ramadan again. Other than not eating during the day, there are a lot of things and activities that you can do during Ramadan. I decided to make a 20 things you can do during Ramadan lists which can help me be more present and live an intentional Ramadan. Everybody knows that 29 days can go by pretty fast. If we don't plan and capture the memories we are going to miss out on a lot of beautiful things around us. Here are my beautiful lists:
  1. Eat dates during sahur and iftar
  2. Recite Quran every chance you get
  3. Listen to Quran recital during that long drive to work
  4. Organize and tagging digital photos. Keep the best ones and delete the rest
  5. Read a new book
  6. Clean out your closet to make room for new outfits
  7. Take a photo everyday during Ramadan
  8. Drink 1 litter of water after iftar and 1 liter of water during sahur
  9. Salah Tarawih every night either by myself or with my kids. I just hope Hanif will be kind enough to play by himself during that time
  10. Take supplement like Vitamin C, Calsium, Omega 3 or Primrose Oil 
  11. Use DSLR camera that has been collecting dust 
  12. Catch up on One Little Word assignments
  13. Download all the summer TV shows and watch them after Ramadan
  14. Write and capture life little details on Dayone app
  15. Organize and clean your computer
  16. Record a vlog of your Ramadan
  17. Continue doing Project Life
  18. eat less, not more
  19. Plan a healthy meal during Iftar and Sahur
  20. exercise at least 30 minutes a day at least 5 days a week 
What do you think of my list? Are any of these things on your to-do list for Ramadan too?

The Target [ David Baldacci]

I am finally started to read again and it's all thanks to audible. At the end of last month I become a member of audible and I got a free audio book. I choose The Target by David Baldacci. It's the third book featuring Will Robie. I really enjoy the audio book version of this novel. It really helps me to focus and get the hang of the storyline. I also download the ebook version of the book and this speed up my reading tremendously. 

"The President knows it's a perilous, high-risk assignment. If he gives the order, he has the opportunity to take down a global menace, once and for all. If the mission fails, he would face certain impeachment, and the threats against the nation would multiply. So the president turns to the one team that can pull off the impossible: Will Robie and his partner, Jessica Reel.

Together, Robie and Reel's talents as assassins are unmatched. But there are some in power who don't trust the pair. They doubt their willingness to follow orders. And they will do anything to see that the two assassins succeed, but that they do not survive." excerpt from

What do I think about the book?
 - I love the character portray in the book including Chung Cha
 - I never thought that North Korea is that bad. It makes me feel so bless living in my country even though the freedom of speech is a little bit limited
 - I am so sure about Earl storyline fit in this book. Maybe I should read the first two book to get a better understanding.
  - I would love to see these characters live on motion picture. It will  make a great action movie
 - Reading about the president and the first lady reminds me of Scandal... heheh

My next book: The Fault in Our Stars by John Green - this is totally not The Target but I think I need a break from action thriller novel.

#thursday3 [12.06.2014]

I am not feeling so good these last few days. It seems like I am having a common cold, sore throat and a mild headache. All I want to do is lay on bed and sleep all day long.



#1. Travelling does not do justice to my skin and my eating habit. I am having trouble maintaining a healthy lifestyle while on the road

#2. Taking a week off from work has been amazing! I love the idea of a total freedom from punch card and morning traffic

#3. I have tons of photos from my vacation to process, scrapbook and backup.

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."

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

Project Life [Week 23]

Oh boy! I had such a blast holiday with my family and I really hate to see this week is ending so fast. I had a break from my normal routine and travel. Next time maybe we will choose a land far far away. I am thinking Istanbul, Italy, Los Angeles or perhaps Australia. We will see. Things might not stay this way forever. My kids are growing up so fast and in no time they will have lives of their own. I have so little window left before they flip their wings and fly.

Project 365 [Week 23]

Oh boy! What a week! It is a school holiday right here in Malaysia and most of us take a few days off from work to spend it with your lovely family. In week twenty three I was totally not in the the mood for work and I was having a flu that is going around the office. I was so determined to get well because by the end of the week we are going for our school holiday vacation.

Moving on to the photos I captured for the week.


day 153 - Since this Monday I wasn't that busy at the office, I took my kids out for lunch. I don't feel like eating rice today so I took them to San Francisco Pizza.
day 153

day 154 - By Tuesday I just am having a hard time breathing. The cool temperature at the office didn't help with my condition. By evening I have running nose and a mild cough. I think maybe a mild fever.

day 154

day 155 - I took a sick leave on Wednesday. I wanted to take a longer rest because my body is telling me to rest.

day 155

day 156 - I started working again on Thursday and I am still taking antibiotic and I kept my tissues with me all the time.
day 156

day 157 - Friday, I am feeling so much better. It's my day off and it's also our travelling day to JB. I am always happy when I got to wake up early in the morning, no work and I can have breakfast with my family. It's the most precious thing in the world. I can't believe that Hanif is as tall as the orange cone. So cute!
day 157

day 158 - Visiting Universal Studio Singapore for the second time. This time I can ride all the roller coasters ride.
day 158

day 159 - The second day we went to Sea Aquarium, Sentosa Island Singapore. But before entering the giant aquarium we were entertain by all these historical journey through Asia and Southeast Asia. Interesting and educational at the same time.
day 159

These are my life in photos for week twenty three. 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?
