40 lessons I’ve learned in my 40 years

I turned 40 last week and I think it’s about time I document all the things I’ve learned and pick up along the way. ( this post was inspired by this entry)

Back in April I wrote 14 lessons I want my boy to learn. This entry is all about the things I learned and the mistakes I made through out the years.  I hope my kids and all the young ladies out there who is discovering themselves can benefits from my experience.


the 40 lessons so far….

#1.  Believe in Allah – no matter what happened to you, always believe that Allah has plan for you

#2.  When it comes to love, never settle for less.

#3. Don’t be afraid to make mistakes. That’s how you learned. Don’t repeat the same mistakes over and over again.

#4. Know what you want and go for it. Never let anyone tell you otherwise. As long as it’s base on Al-Quran and Hadith, go for it.

#5.  Never miss your daily solah. That’s how you make sure you remember Allah daily

#6.  Running is the best exercise out there! Your whole body feels it! Never stop running. You are never too old to run

#7.  Have a hobby. Having something to do just for fun and pure pleasure gives you the outlet that you need to release stress.

#8.  Don’t stop reinventing yourself. Always be a better version of yourself. You can always give more.

#9.  Don’t let a man take over your life. You can be married but never loose yourself in the marriage

#10. When it’s time to settle down, make sure you find someone who accept you for who you are.

#11. Make your own money. That’s the only way to ensure independence.

#12. Make yourself see life through the eyes of the glass is half full , rather than the glass is  half empty.

#13. Embrace imperfection cause there’s no such thing as perfect

#14. Read, read, read. Never stop reading cause your brain needs them.

#15. Be creative in every expect of your life.

#16. Never stop learning. It’s the only way to survive in today’s world. Learn and teach freely.

#17. Pray (Doa’)- This is what makes us different than other religion. Doa is our weapon.

#18. Write

#19. Recite Al-Quran daily. Never stop. You might not understand it but it’s important for your soul.

#20. Fasting is the only way to control your desire. Fast when ever you can outside Ramadhan.

#21. Life is more than just a destination, it’s a journey. Enjoy the ride, learn as many things as you can and don’t worry too much

#22. Recite Al-Fatihah as much as you can daily. It’s help you to set your mind to the right path

#23. Count your blessing daily. It’s the only way to ensure that you be grateful for what you have and focus on what you don’t have

#24. When it comes to buying things, go for what makes your heartbeat  faster. It makes you enjoy them much longer

#25. Being different is ok. Don’t comply to the norm cause I don’t. It might be difficult and people might think you are crazy but originality will last longer than copycat.

#26. You are never too old to enjoy pink

#27.  Staying healthy and staying slim is a hard work. Never stop taking care of yourself. Don’t expect other people to take care of you. When the loves stop so does the taking care part

#28. Love yourself more. Don’t do things that will destroy yourself spiritually, mentally and physically

#29.  Spend more time with your kids. The window you have with them is very limited. When it’s gone it will be gone forever

#30.  Be careful of what you put out there on digital world. People might forget but Google never forgets

#31. Spend at least two hours a day internet and computer free. Be presence in the real world

#32.  Have as many friends as possible but choose your friends wisely. Good friend will help and support you but bad friends will bring you down.

#33. Between mother and friends, always choose mother.

#34. Think before you do and think before you press enter

#35.  Put your heart and your soul in everything you do. Never do things half heartedly.

#36. You are what you eat. So eat wisely and choose halal product all the time

#37.  When it comes to pleasing everybody, don’t do it. You can’t please everyone.

#38.  Quality sleep is much more important than quantity of sleep. Make sure you get the rest that you need daily

#39. Don’t be afraid to grow old. It’s just mean that you are a lot wiser and have a lot more experience

#40. Free your mind from unnecessary things. You can easily get overflow with information and it’s harder for your brain to process. Focus on one thing at time and filter things that you don’t need.

My love affair is put to a test!

I just can't believe that when I needed you the most, you are not here to entertaint me! I am so disappointed and I feel lost! Life doesn't seems right without you.

That is basically how I feel at this moment when I wanted to upadate my blog and my streamyx is out. My backup line which is maxis broadband doesn't work as fast as I would have like at home. Somehow the maxis connection seems to drop right here. I am hoping that my mobile phone will rescue me from this heartache...
Some Sunday Hipstamatic to the rescue.....

Hoping and praying that tomorrow the service will be back on....

Lookbook Style// Reinventing myself–the headcover and the style

I’ve been trying this different look with different head cover for awhile now. I am still looking for a style that fits me – which is casual, relax, modern and not too old all at the same time. It has been difficult finding your look to fit your age. I plan to reinvent the 40’s look to make it current, stylish and not too old.

These are a few styles I’ve been looking into

With Pink ShawlHorey For Life Wish me luck!! Maybe Firzara can help me out here..

Sweet Sunday morning and I like it!!!

I just love the sound and the smell of Sundays morning. So calm and relax without having to rush out the door to go to work.

Mom!!! Stop playing with your new toy!

My kids will always scream at me every time I pull out my iphone and play with Hipstamatic. This usually happened when I am in my car and snapping a few self portrait is a must! They even have to take my phone and make me focus on the tasks at hand. hehehehe.. thanks kids for making me come back to reality!
As promise I will share one new photography apps I am currently obsess with. This one is called Hipstamatic.
“Hipstamatic is a digital photography application for the Apple iPhone. It uses the iPhone's camera to allow the user to shoot square photographs, to which it applies a number of software filters in order to make the images look as though they were taken with an antique film camera. The user can choose among a number of effects which are presented in the application as "lenses", "films" and "flashes". Several of these are included with the application, while others need to be purchased separately.
Hipstamatic is part of a "retro" trend in photography, which has seen a rise in the popularity of cheap and technically obsolete analog cameras (such as Lomography and Polaroid instant cameras), as well as software filters and smartphone software that emulate such cameras. Other "vintage" photography applications include CameraBagand Instagram. Like Hipstamatic, they often include social networking features to facilitate the exchange of photos via the internet” source Wikipedia.
And this is why I am obsess with it!
This apps. reminds me of my old camera. Way back when there’s only 35mm film, it only took 12 rolls, 24 rolls or 36 rolls and it took like a week to develop the film before you can enjoy it.
I like the random effects I get when I changed the camera lens and the films. The only setback is if when want different kind of lens or films you have to pay for them.
I am still learning and exploring the different combination and the effects that came with it. This might keep me occupied a bit.
These are some of the beautiful shoots by some of the professional out there! Enjoy!! All the photos are from the big hisptamatic show
