  • taking three months unpaid maternity leave
todays prompt is definitely fun to explore:
  • I enjoy listening to Justin Bieber
  • I enjoy watching Smallville
  • I still have Twilight fever
  • ice cream is still my favorite guilty pleasure
  • I still love to read Archie comic


I didn't do the March lists exactly on March just because I was in the last trimester of my pregnancy and preparing myself physically and mentally for the birth of my son.

This is such a fun lists to make. I realised that my style definitely has changed over the years. It's nice to read back all my lists and remember what it was like back then.

#thursday3 [21.08.2014]

I am slowly trying to get back into my normal routine including updating my blog on a regular schedule and make myself buys with projects including project life, project 365 and 30 days of lists. 


#thursday3 21 august 2014

#1. I've finished reading Divergent. I like the movie adaptation too. The book has a little bit more action.
#2. I am reading Insurgent and the Cuckoo's Calling. I hope I can finished these book by August
#3. I am already planning and making lists for my 30 days of lists September. This time around I am going digital, print them on 4x6 photo paper and slip them into Project Life Mini album.

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 Thirty Two]

I am trying really hard to be okay, to be normal again and do normal things. It's harder than I thought to pick up your life. I am forcing myself to scrapbook and do project life layout because this is the only activity than can help me mentally and emotionally.
Today I made Project Life Week 32 layouts. I really went all out with the journal. It's a little deeper than I intended but somehow I want to capture the feelings and the emotions

Project Life [Week Thirty One]

I am slowly picking up my life. It's not easy to recover from my lost. Losing your mother is not something that is easy to recover. I know if my mom is here, she probably scolded me if I cry all the time. She wants me to do things that make me happy and live my life to the fullest.
I do take photos daily but I am slowly catching up with my Project Life layout. I don't really felt inspire at the moment but slowly I am getting there. 
Anyway I got a chance to do Project Life Layout for 31 only. I have week 32 and 33 to make by this week if I want to catch up.

Project 365 [ Week thirty three]

I spend almost the whole week at my parents house. I just can't leave my father alone and I just can't face the world. I want to mourn and cry until I can't cry anymore.


day 223- Finally these two get caught playing together. It took awhile for them to warm up to each other.

day 223

day 224- Spending Tuesday morning in my parents garden. My mom really loves this garden. She loves sitting outside, watching her plants and listening to the sound of water falling.

day 224

day 225 - I am trying so hard to mend my broken heart. I feel sad all the time. Today I decided to go to Pacific Mall by myself just to see if I can enjoy the trip. It was very hard and my attempt failed miserably.

day 225

day 226 - My try at entertaining a 2 years old boy who has just lost his grand mother. He may not understand what is going on but he is sure understand how sad I am.

day 226

day 227 - The next step at trying to resume my life is finishing reading Divergent book. The book is definitely a little bit different than the movie. I still like the movie adaptation. Can't wait for the sequel.

day 227

day 228 - A lot of open house today. I only bring this little boy which is a bit of a handful for me to handle. Ever since my mom's death he seems to attach to me. I just can't do much.

day 228

day 229 - Another mini book haul for August.

day 229

These are my life in photos for week thirty 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.

Project 365 [ Week Thirty two]

Week thirty two was the hardest week of my life. My mom died at the aged of 70 years old. She was and always will be the greatest woman in my life. Everything feels empty. I want to say that I am lost but somehow I kept hearing my mom voice telling me to be strong and remember Allah. Everything in this world are just a loan. Nothing ever belong to us including our body.
Anyway these were all the photos I've managed to capture in spite of being depress and heartbroken.


day 216 - The first Monday I started woking after a long holiday. Not many people are working today. I went to Maybank today, closed my kids account bank and transfer all their money to Tabung Haji.

day 216

day 217 - My son wanted to have his own iPhone. I wanted to buy him an iPhone 5c but somehow I can't find it. It was out of stock. When I google it, apparently the sales of iPhone 5c was not that good. People tend to buy iPhone 5s. So today my son got his iPhone 5s with his own money. He paid half cash and the rest instalment to me.

day 217

day 218 - Today is my mom birthday. Too bad I was far away to celebrate it with her. I wished her Happy Birthday that morning. And this is my youngest playing with my shoes. Way too big for his tiny and cute feet.

day 218

day 219 - Thursday morning. I went to work as usual. Little did I know that today was the day my mom was admitted to hospital. It was the most terrifying thing.

day 219

day 220 - I didn't get much sleep. I was at the hospital to whole night last night. Today is Friday and this was the day that my mom passed away. She died in the hospital on Friday at 5:35pm. 

day 220

day 221 - It's Saturday. The day we buried my mom. These was the content of her beg that she took with her to the hospital. It just broke my heart to see this.

day 221

day 222 - the second day of my life without a mother. It sure feels empty. 

day 222

These are my life in photos for week thirty two.  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.
