Photo Prompt #28: Hijab

Challenge #28: Hijab 


Suddenly I am so obsessed with Hijab. I just can't stop buying. I bought a few for myself, some for my daughter and my mom. I have not tired any new design from Freeda. I used to wear Freeda a few years back but I was not a fan back then. I am not sure if my taste has changed that much. We will see....

Project Life Photo Book Volume 01 [Week 1 - Week 27]

I realised that we are entering the third quarter of the year. In Project Life world I have about 27 set of project life layouts or  54 pages of scrap book layouts. At first I wanted to bind all my project life layouts in one book but than I thought my book is going to be too thick and heavy. 

Then I saw that Photo book Malaysia is having a July sale , about 56% off any purchased , so I decided to make a volume 1 book with layouts from week 1 until week 27. Making the book is super duper easy. I like to design my own book, so I just made a collage of my photos for the cover. For the rest of the layout I just stick my high resolution photos on the page and set it to fit page. Voila, it's done.

I got my photo book in less than a week. The delivery is super duper fast and I am pretty happy with the result.

I am so looking forward to make more project life layouts and make a volume 2 photo book. I think I will stick to the same design for the front and back cover.

A little reminder // Balik Kampung checklists

Every year I made this Balik Kampung checklists as reminder for me and others to make sure everything is in order before heading out the door.  Eid is just around the corner and most of us are heading home this weekend. Right here in Malaysia most of us will 'balik kampung" or travelling back to our hometown to be with our parents and immediate family. If not well plan we might end up stuck in horrific traffic jam.

So before we pack our bags and hit the road, here are a few things that you should cross off your checklist. Some of these are the repeats one from last year and some of them are new.

Balik Kampung Checklists

#1. Check all electrical outlets around the house. Switch off all non essential equipments

#2. Pack early especially if you are packing for three. Make sure you bring all the things that you need during your Eid celebration

#3. Inform your neighbour of your trip and your estimated date of absence

#4. Make sure there is no stagnant water in your home

#5. Clean your sink 

#6. Throw away all the garbage either the one in the kitchen, bathrooms and any other places you have a dustbin

#7. Make sure your car is in tip top condition. Send your car for a routine service if you haven't done so

#8.  Turn off your wifi. You don't need them

#9. Make sure that there's no outstanding job that requires your attention. Clear up everything before going for a long leave.

#10. Throw away all unfinished food. Don't left them in a fridge. In a week the food will not be eatable and you are going to throw them away eventually

#12. Fill up your car tank at least a day before your trip. This will safe you time and hassle on the actual travelling day

#13. Plan your trip well to make sure that the time you start your journey the traffic is light, The best time would be early in the morning before 8:00 am.

#14. If you travel with small children make sure that you have a go to bag for his needs like diaper, a bottle of milk, cookies and toys to keep him entertain in case your travel take longer than expected

#15. Doa before you start your engine, so that your trip will go smoothly without any unwanted incident

#16. SMILE and bring a POSITIVE attitude with you. Expect the unexpected and just enjoy the ride and the journey

I hope that you have a pleasant trip going back home.

Be safe, be kind and be courtesy.

Photo prompt #26: Phone

Challenge #26: Phone 

I have been using mobile phone for more than ten years but I have never really took the time to take a photo of it and document them. Time like this I wish I had captured my first mobile phone. If I'm not mistaken it was Sony Ericsson mobile phone with a green text.

I just wonder what my phone will look like in 2020.

#thursday3 [25.07.2014]

My week so far is amazing even though in some part of the world people are dying and people are killing each other. I just have to shield my heart and my mind from thinking too much about that. Otherwise I will bee paralysed and depression will creep inside my heart and mind. 
If only I have some kind of superpower which can be used to help people and bring world peace. Life can be hard and life can be ugly but if you don't count your blessing you might not see the beauty of life. 



#1. I am currently reading The 5th Wave by Rick Yancey and The 6th Target (Women's Murder Club) by James Patterson & Maxine Paetro

#2. It's the last week of Ramadan and I am feeling a little bit sad. So many unfortunate events happy to Muslim this Ramadan. May Allah gives us strength to keep on fighting the good fight.

#3. #prayforMH17 - the second incident which killed more than 200 people. Nobody seems to claim responsibility. Hemmmm....

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

#throwback thursday [25.07.2014]

I found these photos deep down in my stack of papers at work. I can't believe that these photos were  not in an album. I immediately scanned them and keep a digital copy in my computer. It does brings me a lot of great memories

5 useful apps for Eid

Eid is just around the corner. Even though we as a nation is still mourn the lost of our people on flight MH17, life still goes on. I am a little bit heartbroken with all the madness and the inhumanity happening all around. I just don't get it.

Anyway, today I would like to talk about apps. Mostly about apps that can help you in preparation for Eid or during Eid. And these are the apps that I've used over and over again over the years and there's new app that I like to try just because it is fun to try.

5 useful apps for Eid


#1. Awesome Note

I still used Awesome Note after all these years. I still think Awesome Note should be the default note taking apps for your iPad or iPhone. You can create a category specifically for Eid and it's a good place to write your do lists and your checklists. And this app look beautiful in iOS 7.

#2. BlogPress
If you are a blogger than this app is for you. Since you will be gone for about a week, it is a good idea to plan ahead your blog posts. BlogPress is also available in iPhone and iPad, so that means you can blog about your random photos and stories on the go. This is also one of the earliest app I bought that I am still using. I just love this app for mobile blogging.

#3. Waze
The most useful app ever especially during visiting family and friends at a place where you are not familiar with and have to idea what the traffic look like.  Waze can help you find the best route, estimate your time of arrival and show traffic. Don't leave home without it.

#4. Evernote Food
A free app from Evernote to keep track of food. During this festive season you need an app like Evernote Food to keep a journal what kind of food you eat in one day. Sometimes we tend to eat more that we shoot during Eid, which is not so good for your health and your weight. And this app integrate with Evernote. That makes it more accessible to you on any devices. You can also keep your recipes and collect all the recipes you want to try in this beautiful app.

#5. PartyParty

Emma and Elsie did it again. Another beautiful app from these two talented ladies - Party Party!  It's a beautiful camera apps. I just got this app and I am already loving it. Get this app if you love Photo Booth style photo and a little bit of animation / gif format. And this is a camera app not photo editing app.

Do you have any other apps that you used 
in preparation for Eid?

Photo Prompt #24: Sparkle

Challenge #24: Sparkle  

I am wearing a hijab from Ariani. I think it's from Siti Nurhaliza collection ( I don't think Siti is into this type of hijab) and it has a few rhinestones on it. And I am also wearing brooch from CK Rahim which is full with clear and colour rhinestone. I think the whole sparkle look makes my face look a little bit glowing. Hehehe...

Makeup Haul // MAC

I think everybody is in the shopping mode for Eid which is coming soon in less than a week. Most of the ladies out there are out looking for a perfect makeup to wear on the special occasion. Last week I went shopping and ended up with a bag of makeup from MAC cosmetic. I have been wearing a few of MAC product since last year. Some I love and some not so much.

I bought 7 item from MAC and can't wait to explore and experiment

#1. Concealer Brush and Blending Brush
I am adding these two brushes into my collection just because I don't have them yet. I love how the brush feels in my skin. So soft.

#2. Mineralize Powder {refill}
This is my third purchased of the same product. I just love this powder. I have been using these powder since last year and I just love it.

#3. Mineralize Rich lipstick in Good Taste shade. 
It's a little bit of red and pink. It's a strong colour.

#4. Mineralize Rich lipstick in Bold Spring
This is definitely a bold pink colour lipstick. I just love pink.

#5. NW25 Studio Finish Concealer
I have not try any concealer from Mac. This is my first try and so far it does the job of concealing.

#6. Powder Blush in the shade of Lovecloud
Oh boy! I am totally in love with this shade. It's a pretty colour of pink. Definitely stole my heart at first sight!

#7. Soft & Gentle Mineralize Skinfinish
Highlight from Mac. It looks promising. Hopefully I mastered the technique of applying highlighter before Eid.

That is basically my new makeup haul for Eid. I will be using Urban Decay Naked Foundation in Shade 4.0, Urban Decay Naked 3 Eyeshadow and Benefit Hoola Bronzer for Eid. These are three of my favourite product which I will repurchased if I've managed to finished them.

Photo Prompt #22 : Exercise

Challenge #22: Exercise

Even though it's Ramadan, I still do my daily exercise at least five times a week. Since the time after Iftar is very limited I try to do short workout between 25 minutes or 30 minutes. I just can't afford to do a one hour workout. T25 or P90x or Mike Donavanic is the best

Project 365 {Week twenty nine]

It was such a crazy and tragedy week for us Malaysian. We were shocked by the news of MH17 crashed and burn because the flight was mistakenly shoot down by some terrorist. Seriously?!!! It was a commercial flight from Amsterdam to Malaysia. 297 passengers died that day {17 July 2014}. It felt surreal just 132 days ago, MH370 missing and we are still mourn the lost and now this. What is happening to the word? Are we being bullied and we don't even know it. 

I am so thankful and glad that I am alive today and still can appreciate my life little details. This is what Project 365 is all about. Capture the everyday.

day 201

These are my life in photos for week twenty nine.  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.
