    Day Trip To Malacca

    Besides Penang, I have always loved going to Malacca — akin to Penang, rich with heritage buildings, historical sites and colonial structures. I love strolling around the city and finding myself in between antiquated shophouses or buildings that could let me catch a glimpse of colonial times. I take pleasure in knowing that once upon a time, my great grandparents,…

    Marriage.

    Less than a year ago, if you had asked me about marriage, often, I’d end up sweating and trembling and have shortness of breath. It was a feeling akin to having your slightly obese brother sitting on your chest. Marriage seemed rather far-fetched from where I stood and the thought of being someone’s wife was, truthfully, nauseating. I remember having…

    Eternal memory. 7/8/2018.

    I wish memories do not fade. I wish there are ways to keep some moments last for as long as i live with not a single detail being left out — the people in the picture, the roaring laughter in the background, the food we had, the conversation, their voice and the face of people i cherish. I wish if…

    Teenage Rebellion Phase

    Thinking back, surely, everyone had gone through the teenage rebellion phase. If not, good for you, your parents are very fortunate! But to think that, at that precise moment, we were rather convinced that we knew enough everything  — no words of wisdom could get through the great wall built on arrogance and ignorance. We turned bitter towards our parents…

    7 Things You Should Do Before You Travel

    If you are planning for a trip to somewhere, i could almost feel the frustration. Surely, it is absolutely wonderful to have the opportunity to travel — going to foreign places, savouring their local delicacy,  etc etc but when it comes to planning the trip, i’d say, not so much? I reckon, it would be so much easier if i…

    Spontaneity isn’t really my thing…

    I wish i was more spontaneous of a person. The kind who would say, “Fuck it, let’s do it!” to almost every absurd plan there is. Yes, let’s drive up to Genting Highlands at 3 am for no bloody reason besides boredom. Yes, let’s book a flight to Europe and not care about accommodations because fuck it, that will be…

    The Art of Layering

    Living in a tropical country, there are days where the heat is just too unbearable for me. Unfortunately, I couldn’t even stand wearing long sleeves under scorching weather and I will always resort to t-shirts or camisoles and jeans or skirts or simply, midi dresses. And truthfully, I am always fascinated with how our stunning hijabis are dressed under this…

    Hari Raya

    It is that time of the year where i will find myself in the kitchen in my sweatpants baking cookies and cakes for the day some may rejoice and others may loathe. As for me, there was a period of time where i would be entirely exhilarated — dressing up in a brand new baju kurung that i would only…

    Kindness Is A Rarity?

    I have come to a point where i find it unsurprising to see how vicious one can be. Humans can be utterly terrifying. I mean, we have heard of Hitler, right? And it is unfortunate how kindness has become a rarity that we jump in excitement at the sight of even the tiniest gesture. It’s not to say that i…
