#thursday3 [19.06.2014]

This is definitely one of the most hectic week so far this year. I am just can't stop, take a breath and prepare for my birthday. I had so many things planned in my head but somehow when it comes to executing the plan I seem to have failed.



#1. Teambuilding at Ismah Beach Resort Melaka for two days

#2. Currently reading Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell

#3. Last week I have finished reading The Fault in our stars by John Green. Can't wait to see the movie.

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

My book Wish Lists June 2014

Ever since I got reacquainted with books, ebooks and audiobooks I have been obsessed with all these amazing stories out there waiting to be read and discovered. Things are definitely different this time around. It's more rich with varieties of genre and content from authors with great imagination.

And after I stumble upon booktuber, things have become out of control for me. In less than a month I have read two books and I am already on my third book which definitely a record for me. My younger self might think this was nothing because she used to read two or three books a month and probably 15 books a year. But my older self is definitely a different story. Finishing a book in a year is consider great achievement! 

Since my birthday this coming this Saturday, I am planning to buy myself books as a gift to me. I know I might not have the time to finished them all but owning a hardcopy books that I can touch and smell is totally different experience. I just love the smell of books. Period. There's nothing like it.

So here are my book wish list for June 2014. I am not sure if I can find the book at my local bookstore but one thing is for sure I can order these from wish lists

1. The Begining of Everything - Robyn Schneider
Varsity tennis captain, Ezra Faulkner, was supposed to be homecoming king, but that was before—before his girlfriend cheated on him, before a car accident shattered his leg, and before he fell in love with unpredictable new girl Cassidy Thorpe.
As Kirkus Reviews said in a starred review, "Schneider takes familiar stereotypes and infuses them with plenty of depth. Here are teens who could easily trade barbs and double entendres with the characters that fill John Green's novels." Funny, smart, and including everything from flash mobs to blanket forts to a poodle who just might be the reincarnation of Jay Gatsby, The Beginning of Everything is a refreshing contemporary twist on the classic coming-of-age novel—a heart-wrenching story about how difficult it is to play the part that people expect, and how new beginnings can stem from abrupt and tragic endings" excerpt from

2. Vampire Academy - Richelle Mead
"St. Vladimir’s Academy isn’t just any boarding school—it’s a hidden place where vampires are educated in the ways of magic and half-human teens train to protect them. Rose Hathaway is a Dhampir, a bodyguard for her best friend Lissa, a Moroi Vampire Princess. They’ve been on the run, but now they’re being dragged back to St. Vladimir’s—the very place where they’re most in danger. . . .
Rose and Lissa become enmeshed in forbidden romance, the Academy’s ruthless social scene, and unspeakable nighttime rituals. But they must be careful lest the Strigoi—the world’s fiercest and most dangerous vampires—make Lissa one of them forever." excerpt from
3. To All the Boys I've Loved Before  - Jenny Han
"Lara Jean’s love life goes from imaginary to out of control in this heartfelt novel from the New York Timesbestselling author of The Summer I Turned Pretty series.
What if all the crushes you ever had found out how you felt about them…all at once?
Lara Jean Song keeps her love letters in a hatbox her mother gave her. They aren’t love letters that anyone else wrote for her; these are ones she’s written. One for every boy she’s ever loved—five in all. When she writes, she pours out her heart and soul and says all the things she would never say in real life, because her letters are for her eyes only. Until the day her secret letters are mailed, and suddenly, Lara Jean’s love life goes from imaginary to out of control" excerpt from
"Beth Fremont and Jennifer Scribner-Snyder know that somebody is monitoring their work e-mail. (Everybody in the newsroom knows. It's company policy.) But they can't quite bring themselves to take it seriously. They go on sending each other endless and endlessly hilarious e-mails, discussing every aspect of their personal lives.
Meanwhile, Lincoln O'Neill can't believe this is his job now- reading other people's e-mail. When he applied to be "internet security officer," he pictured himself building firewalls and crushing hackers- not writing up a report every time a sports reporter forwards a dirty joke.
When Lincoln comes across Beth's and Jennifer's messages, he knows he should turn them in. But he can't help being entertained-and captivated-by their stories" excerpt from
5. Lola and the Boy Next Door - Stephanie Perkins
"Lola Nolan is a budding costume designer, and for her, the more outrageous, sparkly, and fun the outfit, the better. And everything is pretty perfect in her life (right down to her hot rocker boyfriend) until the Bell twins, Calliope and Cricket, return to the negihborhood. When Cricket, a gifted inventor, steps out from his twin sister's shadow and back into Lola's life, she must finally reconcile a lifetime of feelings for the boy next door." excerpt from
6. PODs  - Michelle Pickett
"Seventeen-year-old Eva is a chosen one. Chosen to live, while others meet a swift and painful death from an incurable virus so lethal, a person is dead within days of symptoms emerging. In the POD system, a series of underground habitats built by the government, she waits with the other chosen for the deadly virus to claim those above. Separated from family and friends, it's in the PODs she meets David. And while true love might not conquer all, it's a balm for the broken soul. After a year, scientists believe the population has died, and without living hosts, so has the virus. That's the theory, anyway. But when the PODs are opened, survivors find the surface holds a vicious secret. The virus mutated, infecting those left top-side and creating... monsters. Eva and David hide from the infected in the abandoned PODs. Together they try to build a life--a new beginning. But the infected follow and are relentless in their attacks. Leaving Eva and David to fight for survival, and pray for a cure." excerpt from
7. Anna and the French Kiss  - Stephanie Perkins
"Anna is looking forward to her senior year in Atlanta, where she has a great job, a loyal best friend, and a crush on the verge of becoming more. Which is why she is less than thrilled about being shipped off to boarding school in Paris - until she meets Etienne St. Clair: perfect, Parisian (and English and American, which makes for a swoon-worthy accent), and utterly irresistible. The only problem is that he's taken, and Anna might be, too, if anything comes of her almost-relationship back home.
As winter melts into spring, will a year of romantic near - misses end with the French kiss Anna - and readers - have long awaited?" excerpt from
8. Delirium  - Lauren Oliver
"In an alternate United States, love has been declared a dangerous disease, and the government forces everyone who reaches eighteen to have a procedure called the Cure. Living with her aunt, uncle, and cousins in Portland, Maine, Lena Haloway is very much looking forward to being cured and living a safe, predictable life. She watched love destroy her mother and isn't about to make the same mistakes.
But with ninety-five days left until her treatment, Lena meets enigmatic Alex, a boy from the Wilds who lives under the government's radar. What will happen if they do the unthinkable and fall in love?" excerpt from
9. The Innocent - David Baldacci
"It begins with a hit gone wrong. Robie is dispatched to eliminate a target unusually close to home in Washington, D.C. But something about this mission doesn't seem right to Robie, and he does the unthinkable. He refuses to kill. Now, Robie becomes a target himself and must escape from his own people.
Fleeing the scene, Robie crosses paths with a wayward teenage girl, a fourteen-year-old runaway from a foster home. But she isn't an ordinary runaway-her parents were murdered, and her own life is in danger. Against all of his professional habits, Robie rescues her and finds he can't walk away. He needs to help her.
Even worse, the more Robie learns about the girl, the more he's convinced she is at the center of a vast cover-up, one that may explain her parents' deaths and stretch to unimaginable levels of power. 
Now, Robie may have to step out of the shadows in order to save this girl's life . . . and perhaps his own." excerpt from
10. The 9th Girl The 9th Girl - Tami Hoag 

"On a frigid New Year’s Eve in Minneapolis, a young woman is found brutally murdered—the ninth so far this year in a string of grisly slayings. Homicide detectives Sam Kovac and Nikki Liska fear that it’s the work of a serial killer they call Doc Holiday, a transient who has brought his gruesome game to a new and more terrifying level. But as Kovac and Liska uncover the truth, they find that the monsters in the ninth girl’s life may live closer to home. And even as another young woman disappears, they have to ask the question: Which is the greater evil—the devil you know or the devil you don’t?" excerpt from

11. Gone Girl: A Novel  - Gillian Flynn
"On a warm summer morning in North Carthage, Missouri, it is Nick and Amy Dunne’s fifth wedding anniversary. Presents are being wrapped and reservations are being made when Nick’s clever and beautiful wife disappears. Husband-of-the-Year Nick isn’t doing himself any favors with cringe-worthy daydreams about the slope and shape of his wife’s head, but passages from Amy's diary reveal the alpha-girl perfectionist could have put anyone dangerously on edge. Under mounting pressure from the police and the media—as well as Amy’s fiercely doting parents—the town golden boy parades an endless series of lies, deceits, and inappropriate behavior. Nick is oddly evasive, and he’s definitely bitter—but is he really a killer?  excerpt from
12. Unlucky 13 (Women's Murder Club)  - James Patterson
"San Francisco Detective Lindsay Boxer is loving her life as a new mother. With an attentive husband, a job she loves, plus best friends who can talk about anything from sex to murder, things couldn't be better.

Then the FBI sends Lindsay a photo of a killer from her past, and her happy world is shattered. The picture captures a beautiful woman at a stoplight. But all Lindsay sees is the psychopath behind those seductive eyes: Mackie Morales, the most deranged and dangerous mind the Women's Murder Club has ever encountered.

In this pulse-racing, emotionally charged novel by James Patterson, the Women's Murder Club must find a killer--before she finds them first." excerpt from

Project Life [ Week 24]

I am happy with my week so far. I tend to focus more about my life and experience and less on design and decorative aspect of Project Life. I am too tired today to make anything fancy. I intend to write more in my DayOne app. I have been neglecting my one little world lately. I intend to go full swing this month and read more. I just realise that I can write easily if I read more. Somehow along the way I forgot that.

Project 365 [Week 24]

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 160 - The third day we went to Johor Premium Outlet. This is the first time we went here in 2014. My intention was to visit Kate Spade boutique. Wow! I love all the beautiful begs and purses they have.
This little guy also enjoy the trip. We bought him tshirst and let him wear a pair of kids sunglasses. He looks so dam cute in them

day 160

day 161 - We are finally home and resting. While my baby boy is sucking his milk in a bottle on my lap, I just realize how cute, small and adorable his two little feet were. I know that in less than year these feet will grow and they would not fit in my hand anymore

day 161

day 162 - Since I am still taking the day off and there's no eletricity in the house, I took my kids to watch Maleficient in 3D

day 162

day 163 - I love watching these two together. He just knows how to pose in front of the camera and have fun
day 163

day 164 - Finally I went back to work even though I don't want to. Luckyly it's Friday and there's not much going on today except meeting and jamuan makan tengahari.
And I am also wearing my new black jubah

day 164

day 165 - Saturday again and it's almost the middle of June. I love watching this boy playing with his toys. For now he seems to forget about iPad.

day 165

day 166 - My new favourite Universal Studio Singapore mug. I love collecting mugs.

day 166

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

see your work and a glimpse of your life in 2014
