Ramadandaily // Day 12

Day 12 // #ramadandaily

Day 12. - 28.05.2018

Happy Monday my lovelies! I am feeling a little bit tired because I spent my weekend cleaning up and packing. The more I packed, throw away stuffs and donate, the more I stuffs I found. Moving is so stressful that I found peace and calm at the office. I am so looking forward to go to work today. I love being around my colleague and friends. They have become like a family to me.

Ramadandaily // Day 10 and Day 11

I was super duper busy this weekend because this is the last weekend that I have to make sure everything is pack and was in order. I feel like I am finally free to start my life in a new place.

Day 10 // #ramadandaily


These two are also excited to move and were willing to sacrifice their weekend to help out cleaning the house. There are so many things to do and so little time. 

Day 11 // #ramadandaily

Day 11 - 27.05.2018

The last Sunday spending time here. I took the opportunity to hang out here for awhile, reminisce on what life was like for the last eight years here. The best memories I have here was the birth of my fourth son. He grew up here for the last six years. I hope he will be ok.

Scrapbook Pages // Ramadandaily 2018

It has been awhile since the last time I made scrapbook pages using Project Life app. I really need to finished making my photo book for my Balkan trip. In the mean time, I am happy to open up my Project Life app and make a few pages for my ramadandaily project.

Being creative, documented life and scrapbooking is one of the things that makes me happy. I really need to do this more often. One of many ways to increase your vibration is to do things that makes you happy, things that makes you feel like you are in cloud nine.

Here are my two pages that I made so far.

Ramadandaily // Day 09

Day 09 // #ramadandaily

Day 09 25.05.2018

By the ninth day of Ramadan everybody wanted food for other than rice. So today I made fried spaghetti with what ever ingredients that I have in the house. Today theme is so simple, just main dishes and peel fresh orange juice. No additional carbs or additional sweet drinks. Simple is always the best.

Ramadandaily // Day 08

Day 08 - // ramadandaily

Day 08 - 24.05.2018

I am supposed to take the day off today to deal with all the legality of life after a divorce. It didn't happened as I hope. I was a bit disappointed because I've wasted my time on him, not only today but for the past twenty three years. I took a deep breath, say thank you three times, got in my car and drove to work. I'll be damn if I'm going to waste my time and energy on him ever again. 
Alhamdulillah people that matters in my life are here and support me through out this ordeal. 

I received this pencil case for my apple pencil this afternoon and this alone managed to make me happy. I have been wanting to try this for the longest time. Now I know why people are obsessed with Ztylus Apple Pencil case. Writing with this casing on is so much satisfying. I like that I can finally hold this apple pencil easily.

Ramadandaily // Day 07

Day 07 // #ramadandaily

Day 07 - 23.05.2018

I would have love to just stay in the office during lunch break and take a power nap. Somehow that didn't happened in the last two weeks. There's always things I wanted to do and things I want to look for. There are so many option and choices that you have and sometimes finding the right one can take time.

Ramadan daily // Day 06

Day 06 // ramadandaily

Day 6 / ramadandail

I can't believed that I meet Kak Zai at IndexLiving IOI City Mall Putrajaya this afternoon. I was still looking for a ready made curtain for my sliding door and browsing bedding at IndexLiving. When I was about to pay for my purchase I saw a familiar face. At first I thought I was dreaming, am I in Balkan? Hehehe.. than I called her name and she looked up. I didn't have much time to really catch up with her because I have to be in the office. But we did make plan to meet up after Ramadan and catch up. This is definitely the highlight of my day. 

I have a feeling that this Ramadan is going to be a great one for me.

Ramadan daily // Day 05

Day 05 // #ramadandaily 

Day 05 - #ramadandaily

I love Monday. I am happy to be at work. I am still waiting on the direction the government will take especially when it comes to my ministry. I am not sure if in the next few days my ministry will cease to exist. 
Anyway, business is moving as usual. We still have to go to work and do the job as what we were hired to do. The best thing about going to work is I can go to Bazar Ramadan near my office to buy food for iftar. There are so many stalls here that it's impossible for me to visit all of them. Somehow this place feels like home to me.

Ramadan daily // Day 04

Day 04 // #ramadandaily

Day 04 #ramadandaily

It's day four of Ramadan. I am freaking out! Deciding what to bring and what not to bring into your new house is so stressful. The more I put stuffs in a box the more stress I get. I need to calm down, take a deep breath and enjoy a cup of Al Jannah Mahkota Dewa coffee during iftar. I am obsess with this coffee. I wanted to wait until I am in a new house but I just can't take a day without this coffee. This is one of the things that give me joy on a daily basis.

Day 03 // #ramadandaily 

Day 3// ramadandaily
Today was a lot of fun. I have to go to KLCC to do some financial management. And then we went to our new house to do some light cleaning and measured all of the windows and doors. I think I can buy some ready made curtain at IOI. 
After that we went hunting for some new furniture for our new home.
Alhamdulillah I finally got what I wanted. I can't wait to do some decorating in my new home. My theme for this year is simple, minimalist and modern style. Now moving on to research mode to be inspire by others.

Day 02 // #ramadandadaily

Day 2 / ramadandaily

I am definitely in relocation mode. I can't believe that in a few weeks I'll be moving into a new house. It feel so surreal. Never in a million years I would thought that I'll be moving again. Life sure full of surprises. Now I am looking at a few furnitures for my new home. This sure is so exciting! This Ramadan is going to be an exciting one for me.

Ramadan Lists 2018 [1439 H]

Ramadanlist 2018

Ramadan is coming in less than five days and I am so excited. This year is going to be different. I pray to Allah that I am able to meet the month of Ramadan and be healthy enough to perform my "ibadah" as intended. 

As a list maker and a planner, what better way to celebrate this holy month other than making a lists. My one little word for this year is SIMPLIFY and this year l intend to make a lists that can help me do that. I don't want the month of Ramadan to passed me by without doing anything about it. I love planning and I love lists.

I am going to use this list to help me lead a simple life. Going back to basic and focus on what is important to me. For the first time ever I am not anxious about Ramadan. I can finally focus more on being a faithful servant of Allah instead  of worrying too much about food. 

HERE ARE MY LISTS FOR RAMADAN [more or less the same as last year]
  1. Eat dates during sahur and iftar
  2. Recite Quran at least three times a day 
  3. Listen to Quran recital during my commute to work
  4. Continue reading a book.
  5. Captured my Ramadan is photos. Take more than one and less than ten a day. No prompt, just anything that speaks to me
  6. Instagram stories, try to do that at least once a day in Ramadan
  7. Document daily in DayOne app. Make it a part of my miracle morning routine
  8. Intentionally drink 1.5 litter of water after iftar and 1.5 litter of water during sahur. I still have to maintain 3L of water daily
  9. Salah Tarawih every night either by myself or with my kids. Hopefully I can inspire my kids to embrace Tarawikh
  10. Continue to take supplement like Vitamin C, Calcium, Omega 3, Primrose Oil, Collagen,  Biotin, Vitamin B and many more
  11. Daily gratitude in my journal
  12. Do 21 days fix workout this Ramadan
  13. Daily Push up 10x
  14. Plan a healthy meal during Iftar and Sahur
  15. Donate RM1 daily 
  16. Try to get a quality sleep every chance I get including power nap during lunch break
  17. Moving to a new house before Eid Mubarak
  18. Be happy and be thankful always
May Allah help me and ease my way during Ramadan. AMIN.

What are your goals for Ramadan? 
Any special preparation and planning for the month?

It's official - the new government for the new era

Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad is our new Prime Minister. He is really one of a kind. At the age of 92, he still has the passion and the drive to be a leader again. The people has spoken very loudly during General Election on last Wednesday (9 May 2018) by choosing Pakatan Harapan party to fill in the majority seats in Parliament. I was shocked actually. I never thought that BN will loose this bad and I never thought that the counting of votes will be done without any corruption involved. I think when the votes were that high, there's no amount of corruption could cover it up. The counting of the votes were so intense and they kept continued until 3:00 am the next day.

I didn't wait until the end results because I have to wake up at 4:00am and I am sure by then I will know if Thursday is a public holiday or not. To my surprise Pakatan Harapan has won 122 seats on Parliament and they became our new government. 

Wow! This is definitely going to be a lot of changes in the government sector. I wonder who will be our new minister and the biggest question is will NRE cease to exists?

"The secret of change is focus all of your energy not on fighting the old, but on building the new"

In the end it's going to be ok

Wow! It's five years already since the last general election in Malaysia. This year there are so many new parties formed and new manifesto documented. As a citizen of Malaysia and as a voter, I am ready to cast my vote today. I do believe that one vote does matter in our path to choose the right leader for Malaysia. It's the future of our children get decided today.

Some voters are so dedicated and loyal to one part no matter what, some voters are still undecided about which political party to choose, some people didn't have the opportunity to vote due to other commitments and some people just don't care enough to vote.

Tonight is definitely going to be an interesting event when the votes has been tally and they announce the winner. Who will be our next leader? Who will be our next government? Can this new government lead Malaysia to be the best nation among the best? Can they develop the country, focus on the people and be ruthless at making the right decision? It's not easy to rule a country especially in a world where information are every where and communication move as fast as light.

Now more than ever that we as a nation need to be aware of "the Law of attraction", we attract what we like as much as we attract what we don't like. Just be aware of this law. Focus our mind, energy and feelings into what we love and what we want to see happen. Visualise it's already here and be thankful for it.

Anyway, as a documenter I love to capture a few random things about  general election 14.

#1. Google celebrate our General Election 2018 with this image on google search.

#2. These are the people / party I have to choose today

#3. Some random photos from yesterday

#GE14 time untuk mengundi #GE14 time untuk mengundi #GE14 time untuk mengundi #GE14 time untuk mengundi #GE14 time untuk mengundi #GE14 time untuk mengundi

Life can be difficult and hard no matter who rule the country. I am still looking for a place to stay, I am still adjusting to life as a single parent, I am still a happy person, I am still working for the government, I am still missing my mom, I am still hoping that there will be justice, I am still hurt by the betrayal by the people I trust, I am still finding myself, I am still obsessing over Damon Salvator ( I know I know I should move on, the show has ended a long time ago), I am still learning to practice law of attraction to be in my favour and I am still me.

Choose wisely, believe that you make the right choice, feel it in every fiber of your being, believe it already happen and let go. In the end it's going to be ok.

Twenty One

05.05.2018 - Happy birthday to my dear son, may all of your dreams comes true.

He is finally at the age where he can vote. Unfortunately the General Election is on 9th May 2018 and he has not registered as a voter yet. 

Congratulation my son for reaching 21 years old and entering adulthood. Being an adult has it's perks but the best thing about growing up is being independent. Enjoy it, celebrate it and make good choices.
No matter what I will always love you.

PL// Balkans 2018 Part 1

It has been two weeks since I came back from traveling through Balkans. I had the best time there and it's not easy to forget. There were so many things that I wanted to share but I don't know where to begin. 

I decided to share my story through project life pages. I do plan to make a photo book with these photos. I am so thankful for project life app for making this process so much easier and a lot of fun 

 HERE ARE A FEW PAGES FROM DAY 1 - DAY 3 Balkans-01 Balkans-02 Balkans-03 Balkans-04 Balkans-05 Balkans-06 Balkans-07 Balkans-08 Balkans-09

I have like more than 300 photos to go through and turn into project life pages. I am glad that this time I was very selective with taking photos. I used to have like 300 photos for three or five days holiday photos.
