    Part 1. One last time. (Fiction)

    The silly thing about what ifs is that it often comes to you only when all is done and dealt with. Like the kind of person who would throw unwarranted advices at you only after things have happened and what good does that do now? And yet, some nights, you’ll find yourself staring into your bedroom’s ceiling, thinking, what if…

    Motivational Books to Read

    Throughout the course of the lockdown, not having enough time is simply the most ludicrous excuse a person could say. 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.

    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…

    Before and After

    One of the most frequently asked questions i received would be “How do you edit your pictures?”. While i am flattered, (despite going through that one moment in time where i was overly obsessed with teal and orange for quite sometime and ignoring comments like you are so orange from my husband who knew better) i know i have so…

    Self-love.

    In the past, self-love was something completely unheard of. It was non-existent, at least, to me. I was this insecure young lady that had little to no confidence – I couldn’t even bring myself to look at people in the eye when I spoke. I was so insecure about everything – my face, my hair, my skin. I was so…

    Everything You Need To Know About Positano

    I am sure you have seen aesthetically pleasing photographs of Positano everywhere on social media – the many-hued houses, the lemon trees, the ceramics and the picturesque view of the deep blue Mediterranean Sea from the balcony, beautiful restaurants’ terraces overlooking the view, women wandering around the streets in linen dresses and lounging at the beach in bikinis. It is…

    Ciao, Venezia – 8 Travel Tips for Visiting Venice

    Venice has got to be one of the most picturesque cities on earth. The colourful buildings, the narrow streets paved with archaic stones, the canal, the gondolas, the historic bridges, and the exquisite findings you might unravel when you wander aimlessly. Even so, because of its stature, an average of 25 – 30 million tourists frequented the city in a…
