13 Reasons Why // Netflix


I cannot believed how addicted this Series are. I heard about the book way back on 2012 but somehow I didn't have the heart to read it. Story about teenage suicide is kinda depressing to read about. And then this year I saw 13 reasons why on Netflix and I was not sure if I want to watch it. Then on Thursday night I watched Christine Riccio's review of this tv series and I got curious.

I started watching the show on Friday morning and I can't stop watching it until Saturday night. I wanted to skip ahead to the last episodes just to know what happened. Wow! The kind of thing these kids go through on a daily basis is so scary. They are just kids and they are dealing with a lot of heavy stuffs.

[Spoiler Alert!!] 
I just finished the last episode of 13 reasons why and it really breaks my heart. I really hope that Hannah didn't die. Somehow her attempt to commit suicide failed and her parents kept it quiet. She's in a comma somewhere. The scene where she actually do it was really hard to watch. And when her mother found her lifeless like that was even harder. As a mother of teenage kids I know the feeling too well, the fear of loosing your child especially in a tragedy like that is unbearable.

The ending really leave a lot of room for more stories to grow. I really want to see what happened after Mr Porter finished listening to the tapes. What will he do. What would the Baker do after finished listening to her daughter's stories, especially the part about when her daughter was raped? Will Bryce be prosecuted? Where is Justin going? Did Alex kill himself or if other student killed him?  Urgh!!! So many questions left unanswered. I did thought that the last episode going to be the last and I have all my questions answered. Nope. I have rooting for Clay and Hannah since the first episode even though I kinda know what's going to happened. It's such a tragedy that they never had their chance to be together.

If you are a parent or a teenager you need to see this TV show. This is the kind of story that stuck with you till the end. It discuss a lot about hard things like bullying, social outcast, ignorance, friendship, gossip, the butterfly effects and many more. It's about choices that we make, about what we say and do can effect other people and we can never really know what is going on with other people especially their inner struggle. The most important lesson is BE KIND.

Day 96:365 // Sick Child

He has been sick since Sunday. His fever is getting worst each day. He is an active child and loves his iPad so much. So when he doesn't want to touch his iPad at all I am a bit worried. I don't know what to do since he doesn't want to eat or drink anything. No medicine - all he wants to do is sleep. I decided to take him to Az zahra hospital with the intention to admit him. Maybe when a nurse gave him medicine he won't be as rebellious.

 

It breaks my heart to see him this way, so weak and so sick. It's not the sight that a mother can stand. He was diagnosed with Influenza- the kind of flu symptoms which can cause high fever and muscle ache. Ya Allah please let him be okay and healthy as always. I love him so much and I want the opportunity to be his mother

Day 95:365 // Canon Powershot G7 Mark II

My old canon ixus broked and I am in search for the new point and shoot camera. I know that the iPhone 7 can take beautiful photos but the battery life isn't so great compared to the point and shoot camera. I was contemplating between sony camera and canon because these is the only brand that I trust. After tons of research I decision to go for Canon Powershot Gx7 Mark II because of the price, it's cheaper than Sony and I really like the way it feels in my hand.
 

Finding gratitude at work (even though it's suck!)

I have been working a 8-5 job for more than twenty years. I have never been unemployed before, I am constantly working even when I was in college. Being stuck in 8-5 job with punch card to worry about every single day can really make someone loose their minds.

This is where gratitude play an important role. Gratitude helps me to see the good in what I have, instead of the bad. It's a habit worth grooming. You do need to train your mind to see the good in things, the goos in every day life otherwise you tend to see the negatives.

Here are my 5 ways of finding gratitude at work (even though it's suck)

1. Schedule daily workout session at the office. Instead of taking a cup of coffee I do 25 minutes of cardio in my room just to get my heart pumping and get excited for work. This is kind of a warm up for me before I started checking emails and my to do lists.

2. Lunch date with coworker can help improve my mood. Having a great people at work and beautiful relationships can help makes a stressful day at work seems bearable. I am an introvert person and I am trying to be a little bit extrovert with people I know and work with on a daily basis. Being with other people socially is really good for me.

3. Head out from my room and be outside. The feeling of fresh air and sun can lift up my mood in seconds. Being outside is a normal thing for human being. Sitting behind a desk all day is not normal.

4. Walk, walk and walk some more. Hitting 10,000 steps a day has become my goal since last year. I am taking advantage of the stairs at work to help me be more active and get excited about the place where I work

5. Learn new technology. I have always love technologies and I always love to learn new things. Finding and experimenting new ways of doing things has become my obsession at work lately. If only I could convince people at my department to go all mobile and ditched desktop computer all together than I can happily resigned without any regrets.

Hopefully you enjoyed reading these little things I do to make work life a little bit bearable and a little bit fun. We are so much more than our job.

Do you have any tips or little ritual that you do at work to be more productive and happy? Share with me, I want to know

My Project Life App Process

Project Life has definitely transformed the way I document my memories on day to day basis. It really has changed the way I looked at scrapbooking. I no longer see scrapbooking as one 12x12 page with one or two images with pretty decorations and heavy embellishment. The system is so simple that anybody can do it with as little time as possible. 


The Project Life app has become my main app for creating the basic project life layout. I also use Phonto app and Over app to add text and elements on the layout. I can't believe that I have used Adobe Photoshop software less and less for digital scrapbooking. Now I did 99.5% digital scrapbooking on my phone thanks to Project Life app!
Me and Aisya

I am a digi gal all the way. I have been taking digital photography for more than fifteen years. I still remember the first digital camera I bought was a sony digital point and shoot camera that cost more than RM3000. Now you can get a DSLR camera with that price. 
So I have accumulate a lot of digital photos over the years. Some of them are still sitting inside my CDs.. Oo that reminds me - I have to get all those photos into external storage or cloud storage if I still want access to them. Most of my digital photos are already on flickr and some of them are on my personal cloud. Digital photo management is the key to a good memory keeping habit.


Since I took photos almost on a daily basis, it's logical for me to organise my photos in a yearly folders and then monthly folders. I know I should have tag those photos by events but I just didn't do it. Majority of my photos are from daily life nothing major or life changing events.

I have tons of Digital Scrapbook Kits and Project Life digital kit on my computer which I organised by alphabetical order in my dropbox so I have access to them all the time from my mobile devices.
My process goes something like this:
1. I have photos from current week on my phone which sometimes I edit them on the go with editing app like Colorstory or Pictapgo. 
2. I open project life app on my phone and decide which template to use. My decision is usually base on how many photos I want to include in a layout.
3. I tap on the photo mat and add photos
4. Then I tap on a photo mate that I want to add Project Life journal card. I either choose some from inside the app or choose some from dropbox
5. Sometimes I add the title and journalling from project life app. Then I was done
6. If I want to add text on an image or do journaling outside project life app or add a few elements, I usually go to either Photo app or Over app.
Then I was done. I usually transferred all of my finished photos to dropbox
Once every six months I will design a photo book album using Photobook software on my computer and send them for printing. I didn't use in app photo book option because it's still not available to ship internationally and besides the currency exchange is way too high!
Week11a
That's it , very straight forward and simple. I got most of the pages done in less than 10 minutes. My problem with Project Life app is I am always caught up and I ran out of photos to scrap easily.

Week15a-web

If you have not heard of Project life app, you are going to fall in love with this app in a second. There's nothing like it. It's a solution I have been waiting for my whole life.


If you have download the app, what are you waiting for? Go and make many layouts with it.

Day 93:365 // the day he got sick

He doesn't sick often. When he did catch a cold or fever he seldom feel week and moody. This time his fever is high and it still not going down. I am a bit worry about him because I don't think he can go to school tomorrow. He is so sick and week that he doesn't seem to enjoy his iPad.

Get well soon dear because I really missed your cheerful nature and I want to hear you sing Dunia Baru (boboiboy galalxy)

Day 92:365 // Family time

Hanif have a fever early this morning. Too bad his paracetemol is finished so I don't have anything to give him for his fever. We decided to take him to a clinic this morning for a check up. I just love the design and decoration of this clinic , so pretty.

Day 92-365

I spend most of my time today scanning a few old photos from a damaged album. I used Photoscan app on my iphone to make it digital. So I was making a few new layouts with old photos using Project Life app. If only we have this app way back when all of these photos were taken.
