October 2015 Favorites


  • The best thing about October is of course my son's birthday, iPod day and the released of iPhone 6s in Malaysia
  • I subscribed to iflix for one year and I got a great deal which was RM77 for one year
  • My son celebrate his sixteenth birthday this month
  • I am listening to Rapture in Death audiobook the fourth book in In Death series by J.D Robb. This is the first time I read and listen to In Death series. I don't hate it but I am  not excited about it. I would love to see this series made into a TV show
  • I watched Polis Evo and I was so surprised that I enjoyed this movie
  • I started reading Career of Evil by Robert Galbriath . This is the third book in this series and I am totally invested in Cormoran Strike and Robin characters.
  • I love #listersgottalist challenge this month but somehow I am slacking. I might take a break in November and just pick up when ever I feel l like it
  • I finally bought myself iPhone 6s plus in gold. People asked me why not rose gold, I just said I love Gold better.
  • TV show I am loving this month - Episodes, Empire and iZombie
  • And of course the new edition to apple echo system, the apple watch is finally mine.
  • The Kind Worth Killing by Peter Swanson is definitely my favourite book this month

I hope you had an amazing OCTOBER. No matter how hard life gets, try to stay positive and look for things to be grateful for.

5 things // Why I decided to upgrade to iPhone 6S plus

What a surprise?!! Never before I changed phone twice in a year. After Apple event in September 2015 I definitely know that I will be getting one probably by early next year. Then my husband mention that he wants to upgrade his iphone 5, so I made him buy me the new phone and he inherit my old phone. (Thanks honey!)

I am super excited when I heard the news that the iPhone 6s will be released earlier this year (middle of October) compare to last year in November. As always the released date were pretty much out of stock every where. I kept checking the online store and the physical Maxis store on a daily basis to see weather they have stock of the particular iPhone that I am looking for which is 6s Plus 64GB in Gold. I might consider Rose Gold too if they have one in stock. Buying from the Apple store or Machine is totally out of the question considering the price is way to high.

And then last week when I saw the phone that I wanted was "In Stock", I immediately order one in a heartbeat. If all things went smoothly I will get my phone sometime this week.

As promise my iPhone arrived yesterday without any delay like last year. Alhamdulillah. I think Maxis has learned his lesson this year and they are very careful about giving out the information regarding the availability of the phone. No more empty promises.


Here are the five reasons why I decided to upgrade to iPhone 6s plus:

#1. Camera camera camera . Finally Apple came out with a 12 Megapixel camera. I am not that crazy about Live Photo but it's still cool to have that option. I have so much pleasure with this camera phone. Front facing camera also got an upgrade. 5 Megapixel with the screen light acting like a flash. Brilliant! 

#2. Fast processor. The new camera comes with faster processor A9 chip to be exact and this means I can have much more satisfying user experience when using apps and doing my work and play

#3. iOS 9 - iOS 9 works better in iPhone 6s plus like Hey Siri without connecting to power, track pad like on the keyboard and many more which I yet to discover and explore

#4. 3D Touch - The next generation of multi touch is here. Finally something new on touch screen that I am excited to try. I just hope that other developers will pick up on this and make it available with their app.  I never thought that I will fall in love with this phone. Somehow it fits perfectly in my hand like it was made just for me

#5. The only thing that's changed is everything. When my husband asked me what's the difference between iPhone 6 plus and iPhone 6s plus, I just told him the only thing that's changed is everything. I don't know why that catch phrase stuck with me. And he seems to be satisfied with the answer

If you asked me " Do I need to upgrade to 6s?", if you still used iPhone 5 and below than my answered will be YES!. It's a whole new experience.

If you are looking for which telco to go for, I recommend Maxis package. It's affordable and it's value for money. Click here to see more. I am not sponsored my Maxis I am just a customer who has been using Maxis since the beginning.

I will update and give in depth thoughts about the experience with the phone after a month. I have no idea what the battery's life is like. I hope it's still last longer like the iPhone 6 plus.

Thank you for stopping by.

Digital Project Life 2015 [Week 43] and more

I am happy that scrapbooking is finally catching up in Malaysia. There's a lot of new generation catching up with memory keeping, journaling and scrapbooking. And now it's Project Life. I am having a great time with the ladies at the Facebook group (Project Life Junkie Malaysia).

Week Forty Three is fun for me even though haze is getting worst here especially at Putrajaya. I am using project life app for these layouts.

#30daysofAlhamdulillah // Day 07

The two things in my life that mean the most to me, become a mother and have Project Life app to document my life. I could not have asked for better things than these.


Day 07: Leader who cares about the people who votes for him

day 07

It has been a long time since the last time we have a leader who really cares about the people. And I am still waiting 

Project 365 [Week 43]

Week forty three was fun for me. I attended two days of conference which is outside the office. Haze was bad. Schools closed for four days.


DAY 292- This is what my morning looked like last Monday. Not much can be seen in front of me.
Day 292

DAY 293- Schools still closed. I went to PICC for ESRI User Conference. I am happy that my son is able to send me off for work. Yeah no driving today.
Day 293

DAY 294- Second day is the same. The conference started at 9:00 am so I got to go out a little bit late than usual. 
Day 294

DAY 295- I went to work as usual and I have to wear batik. My batik outfit are a bit old. I am not in the mood to hunt for new batik design because I am not a fan of batik.
Day 295

DAY 296- Happy Birthday to Hazwan today. Since it's school day today we didn't get a chance to celebrate it. So I took my baby boy to a barber shop and gave him a hair cut.
Day 296

DAY 297- Saturday is the day we went out as a family. It has been a really long time since the last time we went out as a complete family. KLCC is usually the place where we hang out and shopped.
Day 297

DAY 298- Sunday, it's just me and my two sons went out to IOI City for lunch. I really love that we live near the new mall. We can be in and out of the mall in less than one hour if we know what we are looking for.
Day 298

These are my life in photos for week fourty one for 2015  . 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 2015
