    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, I was simply preoccupied with wedding things. Little did I know and little did we know, we were only a few months away from experiencing history-in-the-making. And suddenly,…

    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 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…

    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…

    Live today as if it was your last

    “Your mind should be like a room with many open windows,” Bapuji told me. “Let the breeze flow in from all, but refuse to be blown away by any one.” – Arun Gandhi It also means to be open, to listen and let every information comes from whoever without any shred of judgment – regardless of race, religion, their status…

    The Wedding Day ( Sara x Faris)

    It has been almost two months since the wedding day and often, I would still wake up in the morning and forget that I have a man who is also my husband sleeping next to me. With everything that is happening in this world, the covid-19, predominantly, I find it a blessing that I get to go through this peculiar…

    A remembrance

    Looking back, a lot has happened, a lot has changed. Within a course of one year, I can’t believe I am in a position where I thought I’d never be. For a long time, it felt so much like I was floating in the midst of the ocean, braving through one day after another, yearning for the time that I…
