These are my life in photos for week fifty two - part 2.   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?

#thursday3 [01.01.2015]

The delayed blog post on #thursday3 project. I decided to continue making #thursday3 project for 2015 and slip them into my Project Life mini album. I feel t so much joy doing this project. I think this could be my letter to my kids. At least when I am not around they have a peace of me in a form of selfie and there little facts about me at the moment. It might now be the ugly truth but at least it's the filter version of the truth.



#1.  I have not start reading any new book this week. Plan to start reading one this weekend.
#2. I am happy that this year photo shoot I have all my family member with me. My little one is happily participate in this tradition. Love him so much. 
#3. I have so many plans, goals and projects to complete in 2015. I planned to organise  my thoughts and ideas this weekend.

[hemmm it looks like I am going to have a super busy weekend. May the time will be enough for me to do so..]----------------------------------------------------------------------------
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 on instagram using the hashtag #thursday3 dan tagged me @hanizeyecandy. I want to see your selfie and read about you

January 2015 .....

Hello everyone! Welcome to the first day of 2015! How was your new year so far? Mine was a blast. As always we went to KLCC for our annual photo shoot as a family. The tradition that I have manage to keep alive for more than ten years.
As always every months I love making small and manageable goals to accomplish in 30 days. I rarely made one year long term goals because I tend to forget about them a long the way.

January is for ....
- continuing with 2015 Project Life. My experiment with Project life in 2014 was a success. So naturally I would love to continue with this project.
- finished making digital scrapbook 2014 photo book and send for printing. I need to have them print out so my family can enjoy them
- print selected photos from 2014 and compile them in a Journal style book / smash book
- I decided not to enrolled with One little Word 2015 workshop teach by Ali Edwards this year. I decided to try and do my own version of One Little Word. My word has not come to me so far. I really need to think deep and really explore what I want to accomplish this year. So this will be my goal for this month.
- choose one little word for 2015.
- recite Quran daily
- setting up a system and workflow to get control of my weight. Do more cardio exercise to improve my blood circulation to my heart
- continue making lists either on my blog or in my journal
- write, write and write. I enjoy writing in my journal so much that I decided to continue with my journal for 2015

Happy new year

Do you make any specific goals this year?

This last day of 2014....

I would love to take this opportunity to say goodbye to 2014. The year that brought a lot of joy, happiness, heartaches and tragedy into my life. Before saying goodbye to 2014, I would love to make a lists of some random things and events that have happened in my life this year.


Something random in 2014

- the latest was , the worst flood ever hits Kelantan, Terengganu and Pahang. Most of the street or highway to that places were closed due to the flood. And School Year starts one week late from schedule due to this natural disaster

WOW! It seems like I can ramble on about random things that happened this year, which will make this entry a little bit longer than usual. So I am just going to stop.

10 favourite blog posts of 2014

In less than a week we will welcome 2015. So far life has been pretty amazing with all its up and down. So here's a look at my 10 favourite blog posts of this year. (for the first half year.. I might make part two if I have the time.... heheh... Enjoy!)

#1. I started the year with choosing Write as my one little word for 2014. It is definitely a challenge to keep up with the word. Writing does required thinking on my part and time to really sit down a write.

#2. I am also making Simple=Done as one of my motto for 2014. Life as become too complicated. We do need to simplify things so that things got done. I shared these few tips to make life more simple.

#3. I love writing a blog posts reflecting on things. Next year I am definitely will continue this tradition. Hopefully I can get one up in January 2015.

#4. When I realised that I don't have internet connection back in February I was totally panic. Suddenly I don't know how to use my computer. I shared a few things that you can do when you don't have internet. Luckily I do remember way back when computer exist without internet. There are so many things you can do without being connected.

List 21
#5. I love playing a long with 30 days of lists. This year I join Amy and Kam with 30 days of lists journey. Making lists is one of my passion which I intend to do and continue doing in a really long time.

#6. I love apps and I love productivity. When you put these two things together, so many things got done. Yeah!

#7. My youngest celebrate his two years old this year. Living with a two year old can be so much fun and challenging at the same time. Love him so much.

#8. After contemplating between Instax Share and Instax Mini Camera, I decided to invest in Instax Share instead. I am not a great photographer, so using a manual camera make me nervous just because the instax film is not cheap. I am glad that I bought Instax Share printer. It's so much fun printing from your phone.

#9. Panda is finally here in Malaysia. I had so much fun visiting them at Zoo Negara. I shared a few tips that you can do to get the most out of your visit to Panda Conservation Center.

#10. Instead of letting my Ramadan sliped by without any documentation, I decided to make the most out of my One Little Word Project and Photography project by consciously documenting my Ramadan. Ramadan is a special month for me, I like reading about them and take a peek at what's life was like way back when.

2014 has been amazing, and I can't wait to see what 2015 has in store for me. Thank you for reading and be a part of hanizeyecandy journey. Thank you so much.

Project 365 [ Week 52] -part 1

Since week fifty two is a little bit longer than any other week of the year, I am going to post the first seven days first and at the end of the year I will post the rest. I will make a week 52 layout when I get all the photos taken for the rest of the year. I am a little bit nervous to say goodbye to 2014 and at the same time I am excited to welcome 2015.


day 356 - My son got his PT3 results today. Alhamdulillah he got 4As. I am not to happy the way the authority handle the whole situation. It was unfair to creative student. Students with high IQ only can survive the exam oriented environment without proper guidance. For the rest of the student they will feel abandon.
day 356

day 357 - Night outing in front KLCC. Wow! What a view! I have never known that from this angle KLCC tower look so beautiful at night.
day 357

day 358- Dinner with my eldest son and talking about his plan and his future. Love watching him grow.
day 358

day 359 - When all the family meet, bowling tournament at BP Mall is a must. Heheh... I can only perform in the fist game. Hehehe....
day 359

day 360 - Unexpected family trip to Malacca. I can't believe that this place has changed so much. I barely recognised it.
day 360

day 361 - Second day in Malacca. It was sunny in the morning but it rains in the evening. We went to Wonderland water park near MITC. It was fun to play with water. 
day 361

day 362 - On the third day in Malacca we went to visit Melaka Bird Park and Mini Malaysia before heading back to KL. Alhamdulillah I got to spend three whole days with my family which I love dearly. May Allah protect us from harm and from cruel people.
day 362

These are my life in photos for week fifty 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.
