    Yes………….

    Late night thought – Perhaps, I should start saying yes more. Ever thought that the thing that has been holding you back from accomplishing great things is, well, yourself? Seize the opportunity, they say. Stop being your anchor. The mountain is you. All those quotes I have come across throughout the course of my lifetime and yet, every time an…

    The things i look forward to.

    I have been so restless and upset with everything that’s happening so I would like to remind myself of the things that I look forward to once we are granted freedom to live somewhat freely again. Like being at the beach during sunset. The sand beneath my feet, the gentle salty breeze against my skin and the euphonous sound of…

    FREEDOM

    It has been a while since I last wrote anything. Exhausted, demotivated, anxious, all felted into one fabric.  I have tried disconnecting myself from social media for a few weeks and it felt like a breath of fresh air. I was completely oblivious to what was going on – I did not want to know about the politics or the…

    In The Midst Of The Pandemic

    Exactly a year ago, who would have thought that in a few months’ time, we would find ourselves in a situation that is simply unthinkable to many. This time, a year ago, little did I know and little did we know, we were only a few months away from experiencing history-in-the-making. And suddenly, nothing else seems to matter anymore. This…

And so, I bought a bunch of books from Kinokuniya and began rummaging through my bookshelves for books I haven’t had the chance to read and buried my nose in them until we were able to partially continue with our…

    My trip to The Datai, Langkawi

    I am writing this in the midst of a 10-million-year-old rainforest – accompanied by the luscious green as well as the cacophony of insects and other mystical creatures. Occasionally, the trees will start dancing in the wind and other times, it is because of the little playful monkeys that would swing from one branch to another. The sounds and ambience…

    My IPL experience @ Bubblegum

    Waxing can be an excruciating experience especially when it comes to waxing your bikini area. At least, it is for me. Fortunately, the pain is bearable for other parts of my body but bikini area is just…hell. Coming from a person who was dumb enough to go through such agony for almost two years (every session involves me wanting to…

    Hari Raya, 2020

    And just like that, the first day of Eid has come to an end. Unlike previous Eids, our house was oddly silent – no guffaws at the dining table, no children screaming in excitement and running around the house, simultaneously, getting berated by their parent; no sound of chairs scraping against the floor in every few minutes, dishes clattering, chatters…
