day 90 and all the things related to it

It's the last day of March! I can't believe that we are moving to the next quarter of the year. I feel like I am living in December because it's raining almost every day.

Day 90-365

I am glad that this little guy is oblivious to the weather or the political mess that has been going around lately. Now I understand why people said that being a child is a bless and never let go of your childhood. Being an adult is not as fun as I imagine. Things has not work out as what I imagine but I am still happy with it. Never in a million years I would have imagine myself being a mother let alone a mother the four beautiful children. All I can say is Alhamdulillah.

And as always I love making a scrapbook layout with the photos taken. Photo 31-03-2017, 10 33 11 PM

I was in the mood of cleaning up tonight. I discovered these old photos of my two boys playing in the park. I just have to make a layout about this. I scanned these photo using Photoscan app with my iPhone and made this layout using Project Life App. In less than 10 minutes I was done. Like Becky always said - Done is better than perfect.

Photo 31-03-2017, 8 41 10 PM

Those were the simplest time. Somehow I felt like I just move through the motion. Those were the time when there wasn't any blog, twitter, facebook, instagram, iPhone and digital camera was expensive. I barely remember what I was feeling most of the time. I think I was mostly tired and angry. I wish I had embark on scrapbook early on and it can really make me a happier person back then.

#thursday3 [30.03.2017] // Day 89:365

#thursday3

Untitled

1. I am currently reading Dark Matter by Blake Crouch. I have never read a science fiction before. The story is interesting but sometimes I have a hard time following the scientific explanation.

2. e-Poster war is going around now and I don't really understand it

3. I cannot believe the monsoon season is still here and it's almost April. It rains almost every single day; morning, evening and night.

It would make such an epic All About Me book — and most of the work is already done." - rukristin.com

Day 87:365 // For the love of coloring

I used to buy lots of adult coloring books in 2015 and 2016 but somehow I just didn't get a chance to do some coloring. This year I decided to subscribe to Pigment App (coloring app) because I can experience the same coloring as if I'm using a color pencils. This app allow me to import my own images for coloring. Now I can scan pages from these book and color them on my iPad.

Books I want to read this year [2017] - Part 1

I love stories and I love books. It's my sweet escape to a different world. Ever since I started reading again two years ago, I have been hunting for more books to read regularly. Now that I can read books digitally with my kindle or ibook app I just can't stop downloading some great books. 

I don't think I talk about books this year. I don't know why I have not do this already. I am a reader and I love reading especially self help book and novels. There are so many great books I am so looking forward to read this year. Some of them are in my "to be read pile" and some of them are still in the store or not yet available.

Book Lists Part 1 2017 - read more on my blog
(photo credit from Over app)

So here are my lists

#1. Dark Matter by Blake Crouch
The synopsis alone got me hooked. The thought that the life you know all your life is not your life anymore is a little bit scary.

#2. You Will Know Me by Megan Abbott
The story about gymnastic world and a murder in the mix got me intrigue. 

#3. The Chemist by Stephanie Meyer
When the author of Twilight series have a new book, of course I want to read it. I don't really care what it's all about.

#4. The Conspiracy Club by Jonathan Kellerman
I have never read any book by this author but I am a sucker for murder mystery and a little bit of romance in the mix. I don't know what to expect but I can't wait to find out.

#5. A Criminal Defense by William L. Myers
This book appeared in my recommendation list on Amazon. The storyline line look promising. It has been a long time since the last time I read a book about lawyer.

#6. Into the Water by Paula Hawkins
I can't wait to read the next book by Paula Hawkins. I know I am going to love her book. Her debut novel "The Girl on the Train" was great and I become a fan after that one book. Available in May 2017

#7. Her Every Fear by Peter Swanson
I love reading psychological thriller book and Peter Swanson knows how to deliver a good story. I've read his book - The Kind Worth Killing and I totally love it.

#8. The Good Daughter by Karin Slaughter
I am always on a look out for Karin Slaughter new book. The story about two girls who are forced into the woods at gunpoint. One runs for her life. One is left behind…This line alone is enough to get me excited to read the book. Available in August 22, 2017

#9. My Not So Perfect Life by Sophie Kinsella
I need to add a light and happy story in my lists. I don't know why her book make me feel happy even though it touches on hard issues in life

#10. The Fix (Amos Decker series) by David Baldacci
I can't wait to read this book. David Baldacci is one my favorite author. Available in April 2017.

So many books to read so little time. I am glad that some of the books that I read comes with an audiobook version. It has really help me to learned English a little bit better and help me to read so much faster than before.

Day 85:365 // Back to school mode

Today marked the last day of school holiday. That means preparation for school officially starts today. Getting a four year old to do a homework is challenging. He get distracted easily and sometime the little things can tick him off. 
Day 85-365


And I made a companion layout page in a few minutes with Project Life app. It doesn't matter if your have many photos or less photos. Project Life app has many templates for all your needs.

Day 84:365 // I love KL

Today we decided to go backpacking around Kuala Lumpur. It has been a really long time since the last time I took public transportation. In the spirit of school holidays we decided to take Hanif for a ride on a train. We choose Central Market as the destination. The place where me and my husband went too on our date back then.

Day 84-365

And I made a layout for today's photo with Project Life App in an instant. 

  I love KL

Oh by the way Apple announce iPhone 7 red edition. I would love to have a red iPhone but I just can't get passed the white front of the phone. I preferred black on red. It will look so stunning.

Day 82:365 // Kindle to the rescue

Day 82-365

Ever since I bought a kindle last year, it has always stay with me where ever I go. Currently I am reading Strange Child by Rachel Abbott. It's a good time to pull out my kindle while in queue. 

#thursday3 (23.03.2017)

#thursday3


1. I am currently reading Strange Child by Rachael Abbott. Thus is th second book of her and it's a little bit strange and I am loving the suspense.

2.- I am taking a few days of from work to spend it with my kids.

3.- I am still not good at making a healthy food that I can maintain on a daily basis. So loosing has become a challenge for me lately. People said gaining weight is so much harder than loosing weight just don't see how is that possible.

Day 80:365 // School Holiday

Day 80-365

Everybody is in the mood for school holiday. The road to work is mostly empty and not many people is working this week. I love seeing this little guy enjoying his school holiday at home playing with his beloved ipad.

Be Happy // PL layouts

I can't believe that I have been doing more scrapbook layouts with my phone or ipad. I can't believe how easy and convenience it is to just pull out your phone and make a scrapbook layout. I suddenly feel that doing a creative process on a computer is a hassle. I seldom launch my adobe photoshop to make a scrapbook layout. Isn't technology amazing. 

HERE ARE MY SCRAPBOOK LAYOUTS 2017  AT THE MOMENT

be-happy
I made this layout completely using Over app on my iphone. I still have a lot to learn about what this app can do but so far it has been an amazing experience.

Books I have read - I think I will make a layout of all the books that I have read this year. It's kinda cool to see how much I can read this year. I am so glad that I discovered audiobook. This technology definitely helped me to read more.

  books-1

The last three layouts were created with Project Life app on my phone. This is the easiest and the fastest way to make a scrapbook layout. I just add in my photos, a few Project Life card, do some journaling and I am done. I highly recommend this app for memory keeping on the go.

Different World // Day 77 - Day 79


The world that we live in right now is so much different. Thing seems to be busy but less productive. So many white noise all around. Doing things for the sake of popularity and keeping score. I am worry about my kids future. They are going to have a hard time, the competitions are fierce, education is expensive and cost of living is getting higher each day.


Day 77-365

Day 77-365
Open Day Uniten - checking out what they offered. The place wasn't that bad and the tuition fee is competitive. 

Day 78-365

Next is Open Day at Multimedia University Cyberjaya. The open day seems a bit different from the last two years

Day 79-365

Day 79-365

It's a school holiday and this boy is so happy. He has no class but lots of homework which I think beat the purpose of holidays. He is now obsess with Subway Surfer, yesterday he can't get enough of coloring app.

Too Cool for School [ Day 76:365 ]

Friday should be the day to wrap up things and get ready for the weekend. Too bad today feels like Monday. So many things to get done. I did not get a chance to take any photos at work today. 

By the end of the day I am so tired and I just have to skip doing Friday Fight Round 1. I know that this workout is going to take all of me and I just don't have the energy to give it my all.

The beautiful sight like this some how managed to put a smile on my face. 

Day 76-365
(This image was edited with Snapseed app in iPhone. Text add using Phonto app)

I took a few photos of hanif doing his homework. This is not the kind of thing that happened out of the blue. Since the school holiday has already started as usual there will be lots and lots of homework. I just don't get it. I thought school holiday should be for vacation and taking a break from school related activities.

I made this layout using only my phone with Project Life App only

I thought it would be nice to include a few of my #thursday3 project into my photo book album. I made this layout using Project Life App. The Journal cards are from Digital Project Life Awesome Edition Kit. I used Phonto App to add journaling on the card. Anything that you import into Project Life app will be treated as photo.

I just love the convenience of mobile scrapbooking. Before I can only make a layout like this using my computer with Adobe Photoshop. Now I can get the same layout by using only my phone! Isn't technology amazing!

Day 75-365

#thursday3 

1. - I am currently reading The Trapped Girl by Robert Dugoni, the fourth book of Tracy Crosswhite series. I am loving every minute of it

2.- It's official that Beauty and the Beast movie will not be aired in Malaysian cinema. I just have to wait patiently for it be available on Cinemabox

Suddenly this...

Things that have been bugging me lately ...


Suddenly this....
  • doing things on mobile devices has become the norm now
  • social media has become a place for gossip and negativity
  • being kind has become a lost art
  • patriotism has become a thing in the past
  • mobile computing is the "in" thing right now but we are still stuck in a desktop workflow environment
  • punch card feel old fashion right now since most of us work outside 9-5 time frame
  • life outside the box seems so much more interesting
  • the more modern we've become the more money we need. We need money to eat, to move from one place to another, at home with all the electrical things we need to live a comfortable life, water, internet, talking on the phone and many more
  • it's very scary when walking, running, taking the stairs are consider hard work. These things should be the norm.
I do missed life in the old days. You might not get things done faster but at least your quality of life is intact. I used to believe that the faster you can finished your job, the faster you can be at home with your family but  it doesn't happened that way. The more job you can do and finished the more they cut down people / manpower so that one person has to do more than one job.

Remember Me // PL Layouts Showcase

I have been trying a few apps in my ipad to add elements and background paper for my Project Life layout created with Project Life app. I have tried Over app and Procreate app to see which one is better. Procreate app seems more flexible but it has only 11 layers limitation, you can't add more than 11.

Day 70 - Day 73 // 365 -- Let Go

Letting go of things might be easier but letting go of memories and legacy is a little bit harder to do especially when a person who mean so much to you has passed away.

Day 70/365 : Logan
The day that I watched Logan at GSC. Even though I know that this is a goodbye movie for Logan, I still feel sad. Saying goodbye to Hugh Jackman as Logan is not easy. I am not sure of they will every bring back Logan in Marvel Universe.

Day 70-365

Day 71/365: Lego
Hanif and Lego is a very beautiful combination. Other then making beautiful creation he also made "beautiful mess". heheh.. If I have the space I would really love to make a room for him dedicated to being creative with lots of legos, pens, color pencils and anything artsy.

 Day 71-365

Day 72/365 : Saying good bye to Jalan Dedalu
I am sad, I am heartbroken. The place that I grew up in will no longer belong to us. Even though you know that nothing is ever yours, it does not make the transition any easier. 

  Day 72-365

Day 73/365 : Pigment Coloring App
I am loving Pigment app at the moment. I love that I can add my own images to color in this app. Now I can finally start to color the Adult coloring book that has been collecting dust on my table.
