My lovely November


In blink of an eye, November is almost over. Tomorrow December will greet us, the last month of the year .


  • I love doing the 30 days of thankful challenge for the month of November. Taking a pause and really appreciate all the things in your life and feel bless
  • I’ve been having the iphone 5S bug ever since it was introduce late October 2013. This item is still very limited here in Malaysia. Maybe by March 2014, the demand for the phone will subside
  • This month I am loving Insanity program. It’s tough, it’s different and it really makes you soak in your own sweat.
  • Thursday Three is the next project I am going to embark, starting this month until November 2014
  • Even though Urban Decay Naked 3 eye shadow palette still not available in Malaysia, this palette is already in my favorite list this month
  • I am really enjoying my baby boy this month. He learns a lot in less than a month. Somehow I felt like I am loosing the baby in him and I am looking at a little boy with unique personality.
  • On all of the Insanity workout, I am loving Cardio Power & Resistance
  • I am loving Chicken Aglio Olio at Padi Restaurant. It is so damn good!

I hope you had an amazing November and discover many new favorites. I am looking forward to a beautiful December and spend a lot of time with the kids.

30 days of thankful 2013 Part 4

We are on the last Saturday of November and this also mark the end of 30 days of thankful project. So far I just love making a thankful list daily. It's a little reminder to me to take a pause and be thankful for all the great things in my life right now.


Day 25: Thankful for a good night sleep
I am so glad that so far I don’t have any trouble sleeping even though I still have a baby/toddler in the house.

Day 26:Thankful for a time spend with family
I am loving the time we spend together as a family – bowling, watched movie, eating together and many more fun activities.

Day 27: Thankful for a place that I can call home
I am so thankful that I have a house which I can call a home. Even though it wasn’t big or fancy but it’s comfortable enough to fit my lifestyle.

Day 28:Thankful for undo button in an app/software
This is so helpful when you’ve make a mistake and there’s an undo button you can press to get right back to your original file or text.

Day 29:Thankful for a file system which let you cut/copy and paste file with ease
I am so loving my windows filing system which let me cut/copy and paste from one storage to the next with ease.

Day 30: Thankful for a cloud storage system
Three of four years ago people used thumb drive to move files from one computer to the next, now we use cloud storage. This technology makes our data/files available to me from any devices. I just can’t imagine my life without it.

For more information about this project you can click here. There’s no wrong way of doing this project. I did this project almost every year and it is always fun to see what were the things you are thankful for way back when.

Thursday Three : 28.11.2013

I just love challenge and project especially when it involve "me". The idea of taking selfie weekly and write three facts about yourself is very appealing to me. Thanks to rukristin for starting it up.

"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." excerpt from

Here’s my photo & facts for the week:
  1. I am wearing Naked 2 eye shadow by Urban Decay. Ever since I discover Sephora, I became obsess with makeup and beauty product
  2. I love doing Insanity workout program. It took me more than three months to start doing the program. Now I just can’t get enough of it.
  3. Finally I got an iMac today. Working with iMac is definitely a challenge because I have been a Window user for so long. Switching to Apple is definitely a challenge especially I always press the shift button when I thought I’m pressing the control button. I need to remind myself that in Mac control is the command button.
Follow along each week using the hashtag #thursday3 dan taged me @hanizeyecandy. I want to see your selfie and read about you.

Insanity // Week Two review

I have been doing Insanity for two weeks and I am so loving the result I've been feeling. I am sticking to the program schedule as much as I can with a few twist added as a backup. So far I have been mixing Focus T25 with my Insanity program just for fun and just in case I didn't have time to do Insanity at night.

My review and tips

  • By week two the moves are getting familiar and a little bit easier, so you have to push harder and faster to get the benefit from the workout

  • The thing that I love about Pure cardio is that there's no repeating moves.

  • I am begining to feel like my old self again. The athlete in me is coming out and I am loving it.

  • I can't stress this enough the important of drinking a lot of water. Drink a lot of water to keep you hydrate through out these workout.

  • Do not compete with other people. Only compete with yourself. Know your limits and push yourself when you are ready.

  • Until now I still can't do push up jack. That move is so damn hard

  • I am still in the process of making this program work for me. Nutrition wise I am still not taking any suppliment or protein shake. I just want to see how well the program works by itself with my normal diet.

  • " Eat less and Move More" is still my motto for this month

I am so looking forward to the next six days and I can't wait to see the result by th end of the month

Insanity // Week One review

I have been doing Insanity for more than a week now. I am sticking to the program schedule as much as I can. I've missed Saturday and Sunday schedule last week but I am not too worry about it because I am planning to make it up for it. So that means there's no break on Wednesday. 

My review and tips for the first week
  • I really love a program with a planned schedule. Somehow following the schedule is so much easier for me because I don't have to think about it. I just have to press play and do it.
  • Pure Cardio is definitely the toughest workout so far.
  • For the first month, this program focus more on cardio workout. My son said that cardio is the enemy workout for those who wants to gain weight. That means cardio is going to be my best friend for the next few weeks
  • The one thing I love about Insanity is that there's a 30 second break in between exercises.
  • If you are new to exercise world, I don't recommend jumping into Insanity because there's no modification for beginners. You have to know how to modify first. I recommend Focus T25 first to get the basic knowledge and the foundation
  • Know the reason why you are doing Insanity. The program is tough, your reason is the only thing that kept you going and keep you pushing
  • I still have not weigh myself but somehow I can feel that my core is tighten and I have more energy
  • I am keeping this motto with me all the time " Eat less and Move More" as a reminder
I am so looking forward to the next six days and I can't wait to see the result.

30 days of thankful 2013 Edition Part 2


Day 10: Thankful for my Sundays

It's not because of the Sunday itself but the weekend. Sometimes I do wish we still have Friday and Saturday as our weekend instead of Saturday and Sunday, just because Friday is a holy and big day for Muslim. So many things to do on Fridays.

Demam iphone lagi

As always the last two months of the year, a new model of iphone will be release. The new technology makes people go crazy.

The geek in me really really want this phone. It's now ranking at the top most wanted phone on the block. I kept telling myself that I don't need this phone. I already have iphone 5 which is still in good condition and I am still happy with the performance.
But somehow deep down inside I am still considering grabbing one of this.
3 reasons why I still think it is cool to have iphone 5s
1. Camera
A photogrpaher in me really amaze by how much the camera has improved in this model. The New iSight camera with 15 per cent larger sensor. Wider ƒ/2.2 aperture.2 True Tone flash. Burst mode and slo-mo video. The new 8-megapixel iSight camera packs in so much great technology, it’s even easier to get a great shot.
2. Touch Id
Fingerprint scanner/reader in the home button is so cool. Now you can log in to iphone with a single touch. And you can link it with your apple id. This makes shopping so much easier.

3. Gold iphone
This is definitely one of the main reason people decided to change . The gold iphone! It makes you feel like a royalty.

Maxis also has variety of plans for all your commuinication needs. Too bad at the moment the gold iphone is out of stock!

WW: Not Done

not done

“I am still learning. Life is hard,
fighting for your rights is
even harder. Sometimes I just
felt like giving up because
it’s so much easier. But
when I think of all the things
that we’ve accomplished as a
team I want to fight again.
Like Shaun T said, don't stop
when you are tired,
stop when you are done. 
And I am not DONE"

Introducing Insanity

I have been going back and forth when it comes to doing Insanity Program. I know that this program is going to be insane and tough. I am just not sure if I am up for it. Earlier this month I made 4 Simple Goals before 2014 and one of the goal is to do Insanity Program. Without thinking and analyzing too much, I just start with the first workout and push play. Five days later, I am still doing Insanity and I am loving every minute of it. My plan is not to weight myself weekly because I just don't want to be discourage if my weight doesn't move down. I rather focus on how my clothes fit me and be an athlete again.

My review and tips
  • when you start with a program like this, you really have to be prepare not only physically but mentally
  • just remember, don't stop when you are tired, stop when you are done
  • drink a lot of water because you are going to need it
  • I prevent myself from doing this workout early in the morning when I am lack with energy
  • I did this workout one and a half hour after dinner
  • for the first five days the workout focus more on cardio strength and endurance. You are going to be dripping with sweat
  • your abs is going to feel the burn
  • wearing a proper shoes and attire is going to help you when doing all the moves

I am so looking forward to the next five days. I hope that I will be motivated to move forward and be the best that I can be.

November is all about being grateful and thankful for everyday things. “Syukur” is what we called in Islam. It’s a noble thing to do and it should be done every single day.
