My 2017 Bucket List

Time is running so fast that January 2016 felt like just last week. But nope, it was 11 months ago sheesh. Prior to my previous post of 'What Happened in 2016', I thought why not write a sequel to it, thus 'My 2017 Bucket List' came in mind. 


Travel




Who wouldn't want to go travelling, right? I'm sure to travel around the world is our shared dream. Since I started to earn money myself, I've been planning to go travelling at least once a year. I miss being on the plane, the last time was 2 years ago so I plan to go over the sea next year, maybe to Bali...or South Korea, hopefully.

Losing weight

Since two years in a row I thought of losing weight but typical unmotivated me failed to do so. I'm short and my current weight makes me listed in the overweight class and it's not cool. I should at least lost 10 kg to achieve my normal BMI. My cousin's transformation is another reason that I should lose weight and get that dream figure so dear self, let's kick it in 2017, okay?

Master Study

I finally made the decision to try my luck for Master study. I survived 4 years of degree life so how hard could it be for only another 2 years...right? Since it has been my dream to study abroad so I plan to apply for oversea universities, mainly in Australia. Wish me luck!

Play Guitar

As I mentioned in my post 'To Learn New Skills' before, to learn to play guitar made in one of the lists. I don't plan to learn professionally by attending classes but I just want to learn by myself, by watching video tutorials, during my free time. By then I can add one more hobby of mine. I wish I could at least smoothly play one full song by the end of the year. Oh wait, I'll need a guitar first *checks bank account

I hope to tick off all the lists above before ending 2017. Wish me luck!

What's your 2017 bucket list?

Till then,
Lya.

My Brother is Getting Married



I appreciate the people who visit my blog, no matter if you're just a silent reader or just leave your mark in the Chatbox. The growing numbers on the stats really would make my day. But the one I'll always be grateful of are those who leave kind words in the comment section. They just give me the stronger feeling of wanting to blogging since I know there's someone who actually read my blog and loved it. I always reply each comment to show that I appreciate them but I think it's not enough. Well, call me lame but I just discovered the 'Top Commentators' widget, yeay. I added it in the sidebar, in the hope of people who visit my blog would click your profile and visit your blog too. Go hit them profiles, readers!

Back to the main topic, first of all, it's not my sibling who is getting married but it's my cousin, whom I cherished as a brother of my own. The family called him Abang Long. We both are at the same age and we're the oldest grandchild of the family of our arwah atok.

Typical of being the same age, we got compared a lot in term of our study results (he's better at studying), our attitude and now it's marriage. Honestly, the first time I heard that he's getting married, I had emotions conflict and 'sincerely happy' wasn't one of them. I've always thought I'd be the first one to get married out of the two of us, because hey, I'm a girl and girls usually get married first. 

I don't know how to put the feelings I had in words but 'the burden' of getting married became heavier since people around me kept asking "kau bila pulak?" and man I hate those words. It's maybe safe to say that I was jealous because I thought I should be the first one handing him the invitation to my wedding, not the other way around.

As we Muslims know that jodoh, rezeki dan ajal merupakan ketentuan yang ditulis di Luh Mahfuz so who am I to judge what has been written by Him, right? Plus, I do think that it's still too early for me to get married and I still want to enjoy the freedom I have for being single so I just simply ignore the "kau bila pulak?" questions. 

And I finally can say that I'm sincerely happy for him. He's getting married at the end of January, so please send him good and kind wishes. Congrats on your marriage news Abang Long, can't wait for a baby next, I'll become an aunt! Teehee.

Till then,
Lya.

What Happened in 2016

2016 is coming to an end and looking back, there had been various events happened to me. I think I've hit rock bottom for some events happened and I was on could nine for some others. I was like, riding roller coaster the whole year because of so many emotions - happiness, also sadness along the way.

Convocation

The 4 years of hell (read : study) finally ended. Though things happened regarding convocation but it is surely the one event I couldn't forget. The proud faces of my parents at that time was something I would cherish forever.

Work

After months of being unemployed, I finally got the position I wanted at an architecture firm. Though it would be just for a year, the experience and knowledge I gained is something I'll never waste and for sure would be helpful for me in the future. Thank you to my colleagues, and of course my mentor architect, En Ramli Mat Ishak.

Vacation

Since I just started working, I didn't get to go on vacation that much as almost 70% of my income goes to paying bills. But I went on a memorable trip to Penang on Chinese New Year. Couldn't wait for 2017 vacations!

Raya

What Happened in 2016

The exciting part of Raya this year was because it's my first time giving out duit Raya! Though it means I lost money but somehow it felt good giving my siblings and cousins their duit Raya. Kids, Along is a grown up. Teehee.

Concert

What Happened in 2016

My first ever concert experience was in August, for iKON. I didn't plan to go to the concert at first but since it wasn't so expensive because it was iKON's first time coming to Malaysia so I just grabbed the ticket. I was glad I decided to go to the concert as it was AMAZING. Definitely was my most exciting event of 2016. 

There were unhappy, terrible events happened but why would I ruin the happy mood, right? Let's just spread the positivity and hopefully 2017 would be better.

How was your 2016?

Till then,
Lya.

My Worst Distractions

I have too many important things to do especially my freelance works but I'm honestly in a deep relationship with procrastination. In this entry, I want to share with you my reasons of procrastinating.


K-Related


Be it K-drama, K-movie or even K-variety, I love everything Korean related entertainment so it is my worst distraction of all. I tend to prioritize the shows I missed rather than my actual works that needed to be done first. Once during my study days, I watched a K-drama non stop for three days so I was late for submission project and got my mark deducted. Regretted? Maybe. . .

Games



What gamers wouldn't be distracted, especially if you're addicted to online gaming, right? Well, that's totally me. I may not am a pro gamer but I do play online games especially Blackshot. I loove shooting games. The worst thing is I own a Playstation at home so I would grab that game console whenever I feel distracted from my works.

Internet

I am one of those freaks who couldn't live without internet. It's bad, I know, but I couldn't help it. I'm on my phone for 24 hours if I have nothing to do. Just scrolling down my social medias and of course, my blogger reading list!

Books

I can't say that I'm a bookworm as I'm not the type to read when I have free time (I would be on my phone or gaming instead) but I do love reading. I won't touch a book when I have works to do or I'll ended up not able to finish my works as I couldn't get my hands off the book when I started to read the first page. That's how devoted I am towards reading.

I really should learn to manage my time and restrain myself from any distractions before I finish my works. I will try...hopefully. 

What are your worst distractions?

Till then,
Lya.

Can We Stop Criticizing People?


I found that we, netizen often tend to find something or weakness in people and criticize them for it despite their outstanding achievement that should've been talked about. (in case you don't know what netizen stand for : The term Netizen is a portmanteau of the words Internet and citizen as in "citizen of the net"-wikipedia)

The best and easiest example is regarding local artists. I watched Anugerah Industri Muzik (AIM22) yesterday and Yuna won a special award for her achievement in USA. To no surprise, more netizen criticized her appearance of wearing turban and fitted dress (for not being muslim enough? Duhh) rather than congratulated her for receiving the award. I'm not saying that it's wrong to criticize her as we muslim should tegur menegur each other for our mistakes but why can't we do it in a polite way rather than condemning SARCASTICALLY?

The same goes when Datuk Sheila Majid received her award, she gave a long speech she prepared in three pages A4 paper. But rather than listening and be inspired by what she was saying, netizen commented, "enough Sheila, no one wants to hear you". How do you know that no one wants to hear her speech? As far as I know, people clapped for each encouraging or touching statement she gave and she even received a standing ovation when her speech ended. Plus, she deserved to give the speech as she was the one in front of the mic, receiving a special award for her achievement in the industry.

I'm also furious at netizen bashing so called 'budak wechat', the broken English they posted on their timeline and the act became viral. Well if you're that great in English, why not politely corrected their mistake rather than humiliating them? Don't you think that we should help them instead of laughing at their mistake? Also, there's more important news should be viral such as the attack of Aleppo.

Just remember that the tip of the pen is sharper then the tip of the sword. Well, in this case, it's the tip of our fingers on the keyboard. Watch what we say as it could hurt others feeling and who knows what our words would affect them? Please noted that some people even attempt suicide for being a victim of cyber bullying.

Netizen please, we are better than that. Stop bashing, stop condemning sarcastically, stop criticizing, shall we?

Till then,
Lya.

Wishlist #3 : To Learn New Skills

Apart from the desire wanting to own something, I've been thinking to learn something, to gain more knowledge, more skills to add in my talent. The problem is I'm not a fast learner and I have a deep relationship with laziness so I tend to procrastinate what I plan to do. 

Still, I'll list what new skills I've been wanting to learn here, so that whenever I stumbled upon this entry, I would be reminded to start learning, if I didn't yet. And who knows that you whom read this would want to learn too, we can be in this mission together!


To play musical instrument


I always adore people who can play any musical instrument. Also, it's so fascinating to watch movie or drama which are based on music such as Page Turner. I really really want to learn to play guitar or piano. As far as I know, most of the music prodigies learned to play when they were young so I kinda been discouraged as I think it's too late for me to learn. But now that I have a lot of free time, I think I might be able to play if I'm determined enough to learn so why not to give it a try, right?


To learn new language


It is a blessed being born as a Malay as I can speak Malay and since English is the lingua franca so learning English is a must but I think it's not enough with just the two language. I adore the work of an interpreter, my mom wanted me to be one, but at that time, the thought of having to memorize things made me wanna puke. 

Now that I started to work and do interact with Chinese and Indian, I always felt left out when they're conversing with each other in their language. Then I started to have the idea to learn Chinese and Indian so that I could understand them, not to mention that the best thing is I'll know if they're badmouthing me. Teehee.


To play sport


I was a volleyball player back in my school days, ahh how I miss those moment. But since volleyball is a team play so I don't play it anymore, now that I don't have a team. The sports I want to learn are swimming, roller blade and skate boarding, things I can do alone. I think I'm most desperate for swimming as I can't fully enjoy playing in water park since I can't swim and that sucks real bad. Oh and I even want to try surfing when I get the chance someday.


I'm giving you a pat on the back if you have any of the skills I mentioned above, I envy youu. Is there anything else that you think I would love to learn?

Loving The Eyes

Just so you know, I rabun actually. Both my eyes power are 250 and I think it's quite high. I first discovered that I'm short sighted was during my study days, you can read it here (kisah si mata). But I really really hate wearing glasses. I think a first timer can relate to this, our tudung wouldn't 'jadi' when we wear glasses, well I think I look hideous with spectacles on. That's why I love wearing contact lenses. 

But it just recently that I fell in love in colourful lenses. And I want to brag to you about my latest collections. I bought these two pairs online at qaylaa_lens Instagram. It was during promotion that they cost only RM40 for two pairs include postage, so cheap!

Loving The Eyes

The brown colour code : Winnie Brown. It has no rings and I love lenses with no rings!
The blue colour code : Premium Anna Blue 
Specification : 
certificate lenses
made in korea 100%
water content 52%
3 months disposal

Qaylaa_lenses was super efficient, it's my first time dealing with them actually and without a doubt I'll repeat order next time. As for the lenses, they're super comfy and easy to apply on.

Here's a look at the blue one I wore earlier today. Aren't they beautiful? Yeah I mean the lenses, not my eyes. Teehee.

Loving The Eyes

So for contact lenses lovers out there, I would recommend you to buy these lenses, they're gorgeous.

What Scares Me The Most


When I had my trainee days two years ago, I rented a room in a house. There were two other girls, my housemates at that time, but they didn't stay long as they were ending their semester. So practically I lived in the house alone.

I rented the master bedroom, with a private bathroom. It was unoccupied for a long time so it was so dusty and all, I had to clean it for two days for it to be livable. The bathroom was okay, fortunately. No greeny wall and stuff but damn cockroaches would magically appeared at night, suggestively they came from the floor trap and maybe they hated the dark? I mean that much explained why they only appeared at night, since the underground was dark and I switched on the light of the bathroom.

Well, I wasn't afraid of cockroaches so I just killed them using my bare hand, okay that's exaggerating, I used tissue. Can you believe it? While everyone would kill them by slamming slippers or brooms or books on them but I just used my hand with only a piece of tissue separating my skin and the cockroaches. That was badass of me. Was.

Then there came one night when my friend, Yaya accompanied me so I decided to switch off the light in the bathroom, to sleep with complete darkness. It was okay until I felt something creeping on my body and guess what? Yeap, a cockroach. Yaya turned on the light and we found that many, MANY cockroaches in the room! Hell, I can't remember how loud we screamed at that sight. 

We basically was in a war with those freaking cockroaches, with brooms in our hands each, trying to kill those creatures that invaded our room. And that moment was the first time I witnessed flying cockroachessss, trying to avoid death. How the hell didn't I know that COCKROACHES CAN FLY? 
I regretted I switched off the light. They should just stayed in the bathroom!

Thanks to the incident, I now have a phobia towards cockroaches. I can't kill them, too afraid they would fly onto my body. I'm terrified even to have a look at them, or even their photos.

There, cockroaches scare me the most. How about you?

Favourite Artist : Bigbang


I know all of us have that one particular artist that we fangirling over...okay maybe not ALL of us but majority do. Well, my forever favourite group is Bigbang (yeah, I'm a Kpopper). 
The group consists of 5 members, GD, Taeyang, Daesung and my bias, TOP. I can't say that I followed them from the very beginning, which was 10 years ago because I know nothing about Korean entertainment back then. I also can't tell exactly when I first heard about Bigbang or when I first listened to their song because I don't really remember. Teehee.

I just became their fanatic fan (I'm saying REALLY fanatic) when they released their 'ALIVE' album back in 2012. But even before ALIVE came out, I did listen to their old songs. At first, it fascinated me that I could actually enjoy listening to their music even though I have no idea what the lyrics were about. But then I guess it's because of the melody, or is it called rhythm?. I'm no expert in music but I think everyone loves the melody first before we actually listen to the lyrics.

However, ever since I started to listen to Kpop, I tend to look at the lyrics first before letting myself addicted to the song as I afraid the lyrics might contains something I shouldn't sing along to, especially religion related things. So I've read every lyrics to the songs and I madly in love with lyrics to the song 'blue'.

And after idolizing these guys for years I finally got the opportunity to attend their concert in October. Even though TOP wasn't there, the concert still was amazing, I can't get over it for few weeks and I still can feel the excitement as I recalled it. Here is a photo of the concert, a poor quality, I knoww.


They just released few new songs, their final as five members of Bigbang before they start their military duty one by one, starting from TOP on 9th Feb *crying a river*. Click the link below to watch the MVs (if you're interested), also to contribute on the view counts.



I don't think I will ever get over Bigbang. So who's your favourite artist?

A Bad News To Celebrate New Year


It finally was a very nice sunny morning, after a few days of rain and thunderstorm, and it was payday. I went to work in a happy mood, working my ass off to finalize the drawings that needed to be done by the week when suddenly I've been summoned to the boss's office. 

If you think it's not a big deal, know this, I've NEVER been called by the boss EVER so it was my first time after a year I started working so it creeped me out actually. Plus, the old man wasn't the kind of boss that you could have a laugh with. He's strict. VERY strict. Trembling holding my notebook, I marched toward his office with complicated mind, thinking what could possibly be the reason that he wanted to see me.

When I thought that he wanted to discuss the matter about work, man I was wrong. He asked about my family, my future plan to continue my studies, how long have I been working and how it was for a year working in the company. I knew he was just beating around the bush and even though I was so eager to ask him to just get to the point, I just played along. I mean, I'm just an employee, duhh.

"You know that we're short of projects and the work aren't that much anymore so I've been thinking to reduce staff,"

If you ever experienced being told to resign then you know how did I felt at that moment. The first thing that came in mind was my parents. How would I tell them? How can I help them and not being a burden again? (I've been helping with money, not that our family is poor but that's what a working child would be a help of, right?).

My boss kept telling me that it's not my fault, me working was excellent, I'm a good worker, yada yada but sir, you still broke my heart *insert crying emoji*. Anyway, I figured I've been asked to resign because I'm the newly-est hired. So if you're newly hired and working in a private sector, brace yourself. Not trying to scare you, but with our economy in its worse state right now, anything could happen. Well, I obviously didn't see that coming.

So there goes my not-so-happy new year news.

p/s : on the bright side, I finally get a long holiday I've been wanting to, yeayy!

Till then,
Lya.

My Reading List


If you looked at my Blog Archive, you'd know that I wasn't that consistent in updating my blog before. The main reason (apart from lacking in ideas) was I've no motivation to update my blog. As I stated before in 'How Did I Started Blogging', I took the first step to start a blog was because I fell in love in blog Realiti Konspirasi and I couldn't find the love anymore after the author stopped blogging.

Don't Judge


It's really hard to live in the world where there's no hiding spot for you, the world where everything is public and the most upsetting thing is you can't avoid being judge for everything you do.

People won't stop judge you, their disgust eyes eyed you from top to bottom when you're different from them, when you do something out of the norm, or made a mistake. Despite you wanted to change, they would still look at you with those eyes, never intended to give you a second chance at living.

The saddest part is, you try to convince yourself that it doesn't matter how people look at you, to hell with those eyes when you actually doing something that makes you happy and tell them to mind their own business but no. It actually does matter! How they think of you would effect your mood and especially your confidence.

Don't be. They don't know the true story behind your actions so they have no right to affect your emotion, your life. 

To the people who always judge others, without knowing the story, the people who think they're ALWAYS right, I'm sick of you guys. Stop trying to be the hero of someone else's life.

Till then,

What Do You Do For Fun?


It was a sunny day and I was chilling with a hot chocolate (since I hate coffee) on my hand and my phone on another. When I thought of having that happy alone moment, my friend texted me. We chatted for a while, the girl was having a rough day. After all the rants about how our day was, she suddenly asked, 

"What do you do for fun?"

I unknowingly froze at that moment, my mind went blank, trying to figure out what should I answer her.
'What do you do for fun?' I guess have the same vibe as 'what is your hobby?'
The kind of hobby you do whenever you're bored or when you have free time to spend. I don't know about you but it's a very difficult question to answer for a grown up me.

I remember that I loved cycling when I was a child. I was jealous of my friends who went to school by cycling with friends. While me, abah dropped me off school, riding his motorcycle. I can still remember how happy I was the moment abah brought me to a bicycle shop. He got me my dream bicycle and since then, I was rarely home during the evening. I'll ride my bicycle around the neighbourhood with friends. Fell off the bicycle and hurt my knee? Been there, but still loved cycling nonetheless.
The time I got my motorcycle license, I ditched the bicycle. That's how the cycle, right? New toy, got rid of the old one.

In uni days, I've been busy with projects and all so I don't really have time to have fun. But I made sure I went to the cinema every time a new movie was released, no matter how bored it was. I mean, the trailer was always interesting so it's not my fault that the actual movie was boring. Damn you, trailer makers.
Growing up now, I regretted what I did, it was a lot of money. Imagine that I never went to the cinema, I might can open one already.

But now, I don't really have the answer to that question. It's always the same routine everyday, going to work, eat and sleep while doing absolutely nothing during weekend. If there's something I did during that two off days, it's blogging and drawing. Uh right, maybe those can consider as fun, a hobby...I guess?

I think it's only fair if you get the tricky question so, what do you do for fun?

Till then,

The Thirst For a Compliment

I don't know if it's a nature of being human or particularly being a girl or it's just me but a compliment sure can change my mood to be happy all day and it made me feel on cloud nine every time I recalled about it...with a silly smile plastered on my face, making everyone around me wondered "gila ke apa dia ni?". There, that's the effect of a compliment on me.

The one thing I'm good at, and being complimented on, is my sketching skill. Knowing that I'm the only one in the family who can draw, I always post my drawings in the family WhatsApp group, wanting a compliment from my family members. My typical younger brothers, of course, wouldn't compliment me but my parents would, so it's enough to make my day.

I first get inspired to draw was when I get drawings update from my seniors, Syahmi and Mey Kamal, in their Instagram (click their names to go to their Instagram). They both started as an architecture student, eventually improved their sketching skill by practicing and now both of them are well known among people who loves art. 

Yes people, practice does make perfect, I've proved it. My sketching skill wasn't good from the beginning. In the early year of studying architecture, I was always down for not able to draw while people around me could produce a realistic drawing. But I never gave up, and keep practicing until I now can proudly say that I can draw.

So I came up with an idea to make a sketch post at least once a month (because I rarely sketch these days). Here is my first, for December, a sketch of Taj Mahal, India. This one is my latest, proudest sketch. 

Hope you like it, AND COMPLIMENT ME, PLEASEE teehee.

Wedding Invitation


I've received so many wedding invitations from my friends for the past years. Some of them even got married when they were nineteen (too young for me). Though sometimes I did feel jealous and all but I sincerely am happy for them. Plus, wedding means reunion so I was glad to attend weddings to have that catch-up session with old friends. You know you won't be able to meet these friends until the next friend's wedding. That's why I always make sure to attend my friend's wedding no matter how far the venue is.

To talk about wedding invitation, I love to receive a card for the invitation. One of my friend even crossed the ocean to hand me the card herself (I'm not exaggerating, she lived in an island). I don't really care for how the design of the card but the effort to send me one that counts. It made me feel like we're true friends and I appreciated it.

Apart from the card, a personal text message (read : WhatsApp) also made me feel the same. Since we have technology now, I understand that it's convenience to send text message for an invitation as sending out cards would be troublesome and costing money. For example, one of my friend edited my name to be on the card and texted me the image for invitation to her wedding. This small act was enough to make me feel grateful. 

When I said text message, I mean the personal one. I'm not taking the invitation seriously if it was sent to a group chat and stuff, especially Facebook event. One of my friend, unfortunately did this. I questioned this kind of invitation each time, like I think you weren't sincere to invite me to your wedding, right? 

I'm sure not all of your Facebook friends whom you invited using the event were ACTUALLY your friends. Majority didn't even know you yet you created the event to invite them to the wedding, including me, your ACTUAL REAL friend. Maybe I'm just childish but not feeling special to be invited using the same method of your virtual friends made think twice to go to the wedding and eventually, I decided to not go.

Don't Facebook event for wedding invitation pissed you off? (lain orang, lain cita rasanya so it's okay if you don't agree with me ;))

Dear Parents, Phones Away, Please ?


I went to Secret Recipe earlier today to eat tom yum noodle as I love theirs the most. I can understand for future moms to have certain food they craved for but why the hell am I having constant cravings too? Dear stomach, you're not pregnant! Settled down at a table near the window, I browsed through the menu, not that I'll order something else but it's just a must do, just in case I want some side dishes. 

"One tom yum noodle and chocolate blended please," I finally made my order as I could sense the not-so-friendly waitress was annoyed having to wait for me.

Did I ever tell you that I don't really like kids, especially the noisy and whiny kinds. Thought I could enjoy my meal in peace but there goes my luck, a group of noisy kids, three of them, presumably siblings were all over the place. I mean, one keep running from the door to the back while sometime hitting my table and the other two were bickering, literally shouting at each other. 

Annoyed, I searched for the parents, and there they were, both were glued to their phones, fingers moving vigorously, tapping the screen. The mother did warn the kids a couple of time like, "kakak, duduk diam-diam" but with her eyes STILL GLUED TO THE PHONE while the father didn't bother to do anything. Excuse me parents, is it so important for you scrolling your Facebook timeline rather that to get your kids to behave? You know, you're not at your home.

The boy keep asking the parents random questions, typical kids, but no attention were given to him so that's why he ran around instead. I don't have kids so I might not know the responsibility of a parent but I am a child myself. Even though I'm a grown up but I still want my parents attention, apatah lagi that parents' kids yang rasanya belum masuk sekolah pon lagi. 

I witnessed this incident for almost everywhere. Even though they are parents, they still can't ditch their Instagram feed, and tweet at every single thing happened. Oh, here's and idea for a tweet, 

"I didn't care that my kids were disturbing other people while I'm on twitter because this blue bird thing in this tiny device is more important," sheesh!
Please parents, put away your phones for mere seconds and pay attention to your kids instead.

Till then,
Lya.

How Did I Started Blogging?

How Did I Started Blogging?

I love to read entries about 'how did I started blogging'. They inspired me a lot and made me reminiscence of my old days when I first started. It has been quite a while when I had the idea to write an entry about this so here we go~

It was 7 years ago, when I was 16. My English teacher, Ms Mahani, gave us a homework to start a blog, in English, of course. She asked us to at least write once a week about anything and she would monitor those and give us the marks. Its sole purpose was to improve our writing skills in English for a better writing in SPM (I still did poorly despite the interesting method, I'm sorry miss!). However, toward the end of the year, she didn't check the blog anymore. Since I wasn't fond on writing back then, I naturally ditched the blog too.

After quite some time, when it was nearing SPM, my friend who loved reading blogs told me about this one blog, Realiti Konspirasi by Zack Zukhairi. I actually loved his cute drawings more and then slowly I read the writings. His humor in writing and easy going style, like he was conversing with the readers made me fell in love in his writings (too bad he stopped blogging). 

One day after I read Realiti Konspirasi for a while, I decided to write like one. I know I won't be as good as Zack but I want to try nonetheless. So I reopened my blog, got rid of the immature posts, redesign the blog and I started to write again. That's when my passion for writing started to grow. You can read my first ever post here.
Was I doing okay for a first timer?

As a beginner and learned how to grow the blog (improving the contents and writing skill, getting followers, comments, yada yada), I was so excited and wrote so much, like I need to blog about every little things so I wrote up to 3-6 entries per day. Phew, that's a lot! Then, came the commitment of being a uni student and now working life, so I didn't write as much anymore.

Addicted to writing, I even dreamed of being a writer when I grow up but who am I to deny my already written future by Him, right? I draw more instead of writing now, not that I complained, I love my job! But the love for writing also was still there, deep down inside of the drawings ideas so I keep on writing as a hobby, a passionate one. I hope you enjoy reading my passion as I enjoy writing them.

How did you started blogging?

Wishlist #2 : Travelling

When I started working, I have this idea to save money and go for travelling at the end of the first year. Now that it has already been a year, I guess I've to wait for another year as I failed to do so (*facepalm). The past year had been hectic. I spent my money on bills, my family, shopping, foods (this means hipster cafes) and not to forget useless things I desired on top of things I needed. 

I did went for vacations but just local places so I can't count that as travelling since by travelling I mean, going to other countries, by plane (lama gila tak naik kapal thorrbang, I miss).

Since I failed my mission to travel after a year working, I think I at least should list down the countries I want to visit here so that whenever I open my blog and stumbled upon this entry, I'll be reminded that I should save money to accomplish this mission.

So here are the places I wish to visit next year.


South Korea


Don't blame me, I am a Kpopper so it's always been my dream to visit South Korea. I have a few places in mind to visit especially Busan, Nami Island and Seoul. I hope I'll be lucky enough and bump into any Korean artists, especially Bigbang or Running Man members when I visit Seoul. It's okay to dream big, right? 

Bali, Indonesia


I went to few places in Indonesia before, such as Padang and Medan but I never went to the famous tourist attraction, Bali yet. Being busy with workload, I think I need a relaxing trip for once. I love nature and culture so I think Bali would suit me best for that purpose. I heard sunset at Jimbaran and Tanah Lot was beautiful so I really want to see that. Aside from the beaches and temples, I want to go sunrise hiking on Mount Batur.

Universal Studio Singapore


I've been to Singapore for an architectural trip (it was awesome, I really love the Nanyang Technical University) but I never went to USS yet. I love theme park and I never been to one for ages so I really should go for it in the near future, to satisfy my longing towards the rides, especially roller coaster.

So these three are the places I plan to visit next year. How about you?

Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them

Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them

I'm a huge fan of Harry Potter series. I read all the books and watched the movies, twice for Deathly Hallows Part 2. I remembered crying at the end of the last book and the last movie. It was so hard to say goodbye to the best series ever. I still am a fan and I don't think I would ever get over Harry Potter. 

This is why I was so excited when I first heard that Fantastic Beast and Where to Find Them movie was coming on cinema. I rushed to the bookstore, confirming the book was coming along but I was disappointed to find out that the book wasn't a novel, it's a screenplay instead. But I'll buy it nonetheless because I'm fanatic liddat. 

A few days back I finally had the chance to have a date with Newt Scamander (the hero). I went alone, judging from the photo above, as my friend couldn't make it and I can't wait for another week to watch the movie. Obviously can't go on weekdays sebab kerja.

FBAWTFT is about Newt Scamander, a wizard from London, travels to release one of his beasts to its original home in Arizona. The fantastic beasts were kept in his suitcase, not our ordinary suitcase, of course. Inside of the suitcase was a zoo!

When Newt reached New York however, he accidentally switched his suitcase with a No-Maj's (what they call the American non-wizard, muggle for British), named Jacob Kowalski. The incident made few of Newt's beasts fled to the outside world and accused for the cause of a murdered No-Maj.

FBAWTFT show you the journey of Newt finding his escaped beasts, with the help of Jacob. Of course, it wasn't all as there's also the antagonist characters, and the dark force that was the main reason of the chaos in America, threatening to expose the wizarding community to the world.

They portray the characters so well that I immediately fell in love at the first sight of Newt Scamander. Since FBAWTFT is from the same magical world as HP so I couldn't help but to compare the two main characters. Newt is definitely my bias because he's so cool, having an easy going character.

For a fantasy movie, you can't ignore the CGI, and I assure you wouldn't disappoint with FBAWTFT's. The setting, especially the fantastic beasts were so awesome they looked so real, and beautiful especially yang rupa macam ular plus naga, can't remember its name.

For overall, I give this movie 9/10 rating. If you're a fantasy movie lover, FBAWTFT should be in your must-watch movie list. 

Till then,
Lya.

Insecurities

Kedah sky

My own interpretation of insecurities : something you think you're lacking, envious of the person who has it, and it makes you feel down, becoming someone who lack self confidence.

I trust that everyone of you, especially us girls, ada masing-masing punya insecurities. This, includes me. So today I want to share with you my insecurities and how I overcome them, not that I managed to completely overcome them but, yea.

Friends


I bukan jenis mulut becok yang senang to get friendly with other people, especially yang baru kenal so I don't really have many friends, thus I'm not in the 'popular' group (I think everyone wants to be in such group of people).

After some time, I realized it's a bless to have few friends who's always been there for you masa you susah dan senang, instead of a bunch fake friends yang cuma nak ambil kesempatan dengan you (read : masa susah, cari, bila senang, tinggal).

p/s : I love you guys, Jiha, Husna, Alia, Najwa and Muni.

Study


Masa zaman uni, I bukan one of those yang pandai, having As for design class, plus lecturers pon asyik kutuk my design. I always, repeat, ALWAYS, compare myself to the As students, which made me felt useless.

Then I sedar tahap kepandaian I and realized that I wouldn't able to beat those As students, so instead of comparing my grades with them, I challenged my old self instead. Let's say if I got B for the particular semester, I work hard to beat that B (in term of marks) rather than terus nak dapat A. Well, I improved a lot when I finally had that mindset.

Appearance

I'm chubby, so I'm envious of those yang kurus langsing macam lidi. Pimples on my face made me envious of those who are flawless. I'm short, not even reach 5' so I'm jealous of those who are tall, having model-like figure. Having no boys trying to approach me (in a more than friend manner) also made me think that I'm hideous.

Growing up, I started to have this habit of keep telling myself that I indeed am beautiful. I mean, I can't expect people to notice my beauty if I don't feel it myself. To hell with boys, I make myself look beautiful (read : having make up on) to boast my self confidence, and I succeeded.

I learned to love myself instead. I find it to be the most critical point to boast one's self confidence. When you learn to love yourself, you'll appreciate yourself more and started to live life in a more positive manner. This, is what I'm having currently and I'm happy with it.

So do you have any insecurities? How do you handle them?

Till then,
Lya.

New Me

New Me australia

If you notice the new look of this blog, I'm giving you a virtual hug (*tap tap). Being me, I memang suka nak update you guys about what new things I did, thus the title for today's entry.

The Look


Percaya atau tak, I just recently found out about responsive template for a blog. Basically, it's a template yang ubahsuai ikut your medium of using it. Like, kalau you guna phone, you can view the template muat-muat your phone screen. If using laptop but smaller tab, the writing tetap akan ikut muat-muat skrin. This, yang paling convenience for me sebab dekat office memang akan bukak smaller tab kalau nak online (read : nak mengelat).

It took me about 10 hours finding template yang I suka, yang free, dan edit the blog's appearance. Still couldn't believe I spent that long considering I'm no fan of redesigning the blog. The template was from themexpose and I hope you like it because I do.


The Language

For the past 23 years of being ignorant toward English, I finally decided that I've fallen in love with the language, thank you to myself yang started to read English novels lately. Sebelum ni pon memang I guna rojak Malay-English, but now I'm planning to use the second language more. 

Please note that English is not my forte so it's understandable for grammar or spelling mistakes, no? I'm an amateur learner so bear with me. I hope you (especially loyal readers, if you're out there) wouldn't mind, and hope that explains why I use 'I' instead of 'aku'.

The Photos

Sebelum ni I suka tempek je gambar walaupun blur semacam. I'm no professional photographer, nor do I own a DSLR so my future photos also might not be in the best qualities but I'll try my best to produce one. 

Thing is, I dah couple balik dengan Photoshop so am I doing good with the photo above? (It's mine, not from google!)

Till then,
Lya.

Andai Bisa Diundur Masa

Masa itu emas, memang tak ternilai. Kekadang rasa 24jam tu sebenarnya tak cukup untuk sehari. Contoh paling senang, student. Sifat student pemalas macam aku, procrastinate buat assignment, bila eadline esok, harini baru nak siapkan assignment. Masa tu memang berjaga bak burung hantu untuk siapkan assignment, dan sudah tentu 24jam tu tak cukup sama sekali. 

Sebagai manusia biasa, aku memang tak lari dari melakukan kesilapan atau membuat keputusan yang tidak sewajarnya dan ingin sekali mengundur masa ke waktu itu untuk mengubahnya. Kalau orang lain beratur panjang sebelum launching Iphone 7, aku akan beratur panjang untuk time machine punya launching.

Satu ketika yang ingin aku undur dan baiki kesilapan aku adalah perkara yang melibatkan umi dan abah. Kelancangan mulut melawan kata, perbuatan yang tak patut, semuanya ingin aku baiki. Kalau boleh, aku nak jadi anak yang sempurna, with no flaws. 

Pernah satu masa tu tengah mesej dengan abah melalui whatsapp. Akibat emosi yang tak stabil waktu tu, aku telah dengan sengaja membalas mesej dari abah yang aku rasa isi kandungannya mungkin telah buat abah terasa hati. Tapi aku terus hantar mesej panjang mintak maaf lah. Cuma, walaupun aku dah mintak maaf, aku tetap rasa menyesal sangat dan kalau boleh diundur masa, aku takkan hantar mesej sebegitu.

Begitu juga denga satu masa tu aku gaduh besar dengan kawan aku. Semuanya berpunca dari perasaan tak puas hati dan pendam masalah antara satu sama lain. Bila tak dibincang secara baik, timbul lah pergaduhan besar tu yang akhirnya menyebabkan kami tak bertegur bertahun lamanya (sekarang dah baik lah). Andai bisa diundur waktu, akan aku ajak dia berbincang secara elok mengenai masalah kami tu.

Ini antara contoh ketika waktu yang ingin sekali aku undur balik dan perbaiki. Banyak lagi masa masa yang lain yang tak disebut di sini.

Tapi tak. Masa tak boleh diundur. Segala perbuatan dan keputusan yang salah telah dilakukan takkan dapat dibaiki. Sebaliknya, kita perlu belajar dari kesilapan lalu supaya takkan mengulanginya di masa hadapan. Supaya takkan timbul perasaan menyesal di kemudian hari lagi. 

p/s: Reflect yourself. Ada tak certain masa yang ingin diundur?

Reunited

Assalamualaikum. Hai.

Ye, nampaknya perangai malas hapdet blog tu datang balik so here I am setelah hampir dua bulan procrastinate. Sempena bulan Ramadhan yang mulia ini jugak, aku mengambil kesempatan susun sepuluh jari untuk memohon maaf kalau kalau ada antara tulisan aku dalam entri sebelum sebelum ini mengguris hati kalian pembaca. Sesungguhnya aku sebagai penulis amatur dan pemalas kesilapan dalam tulisan itu tak dapat dielakkan.

As stated dalam tajuk entri ni, aku reunited dengan member rapat zaman uni setelah hampir dua tahun tak jumpa berempat dengan agak lama (doblasjam). Lama jugak merancang nak jumpa tapi tak jumpa masa yang sesuai tapi akhirnya dapat jugak kata sepakat untuk jumpa kat Perak sebab Perak tengah tengah antara Perlis dan Shah Alam so stategik la kan.

Bukak posa kat Aeon Klebang dengan pikiran tak ramai kot orang bukak posa kat mall. Alih alih semua restoran penuh booking bukak posa. Tapi nasib baik ada jugak tempat kat Nandos. Kira bonus untuk aku sebab dah lama sebenarnya nak try lahap Nandos. Midnight tengok Now you see me 2 lepas tu balik. Macam macam jugak yang diborakkan sampai tak tidur pun malam tu. Pukul patpagi terus gerak mamak (lama gila craving roti cheese) untuk sahur. 

Tak sabar plan untuk jumpa lagi lepas ni. Harap hubungan persahabatan ni kekal ke akhir hayat. Hiks. Jiwang lak.

Reunited with friends

Tazzabar

Assalamualaikum. Hai.

Dugaan menjadi seorang arkitek/designer/photographer atau ape ape kerja yang melibatkan berurusan dengan client memang menguji kesabaran. Pengalaman aku sendiri, aku ade buat freelance design rumah pakngah aku. Tapi biasalah sebagai client dan tuan rumah memang nak rumah yang perfect, cantik macam yang banyak terdapat dalam majalah majalah seperti anjung seri. Dan designer jugak lah yang mengalami kepeningan fikir macam mana nak buat impian seorang client menjadi kenyataan. Sabar jelah.

Setelah hampir sebulan bertungkus lumus cuba mendesign rumah yang perfect buat pakngah akhirnya siap plan dan pakngah bank in upah pendahuluan sebab kerja belum siap sepenuhnya lah kan. Jadi petang tu akupun ke bank nak keluarkan duit nak berjoli dekat bank islam Kangar. Ada tiga mesin atm tapi yang berfungsi hanya dua. Mesin A ade dalam tiga empat orang beratur manakala mesin B ade dua orang tapi mereka kelihatan berurusan sekali so akupun beratur belakang mesin B, belakang dua jejaka itu.

Sambil menunggu jejaka jejaka di depan aku menyelesaikan urusan mereka, seperti biasa aku main henpon, sekadar scroll twitter dan instagram. Namun bila terasa macam dah kesejuta kali aku scroll twitter tapi jejaka jejaka depan aku tak selesai lagi buat aku mula nak naik angin. Mesin A pon orang dah berganti ganti. Jadi aku buat keputusan beratur belakang mesin A pulak yang ada dua tiga orang.

Tak sampai sesaat aku beralih ke mesin A, jejaka jejaka yang aku tunggu bagai tunggu janggut tumbuh tu dah selesai urusan dan keluar dari bank. Dalam hati aku waktu tu Tuhan je yang tahu berapa bakul sumpah seranah aku hadiahkan kepada mereka. Orang pun makin ramai nak guna mesin atm beratur both belakang mesin A dan B. Tinggal lah lagi seorang makcik depan aku nak keluar duit. 

Tapi jantung aku berdegup kencang bila tetiba makcik tu beralih ke mesin A "mesin ni dah habis duit kot, dah tak boleh keluar duit" K.

Dengan air mata yang bergenang (hiperbola je) aku cuba jugak keluarkan duit dari mesin B walaupun semua orang yang beratur di mesin B tadi dah pun beralih arah ke mesin A. Hampa sebab gagal. Dasar mesin tak guna. Akupun beralih beratur belakang mesin A yang dah pun panjang barisannya dengan manusia.

Terapi Minda

Assalamualikum. Hai.

Aku tak pernah sangka writing would be one of my way to menerapikan minda, menenangkan jiwa dikala hati tengah bergolak marah atau resah atau sedih. Senang nak meluahkan perasaan melalui tulisan instead of menjerit, or baling baling barang or merosakkan harta benda yang tak berdosa yang kau kena ganti balik so kau rugi duit di situ.

Tapi. Bila menulis atau meluahkan kata kata ketika dalam keadaan sedang beremosi, ketika sedang dalam amarah adalah sangat bahaya, memakan diri sendiri dan mungkin mengguris perasaan mereka yang di sekeliling samada aku sedar atau tidak. 

Untuk itu, aku menyusun sepuluh jari jemariku yang gemuk gedempol ini memohon maaf atas segala apa yang aku tulis dalam blog ini, dalam twitter, fesbuk ataupun instagram ada mengguris perasaan kalian semua. Aku tahu apa yang ditulis takkan dapat ditarik balik. Bak kata pepatah, terlajak perahu boleh undur tapi terlajak kata bukannya boleh ditarik.

Kepada mereka mereka yang berperangai bij seperti aku, anda dinasihatkan untuk menulis diari. Aku pun baru start tulis diari so that bila tiba waktu hati dikacau dan ingin meluahkan ketika beremosi, aku tulis dalam diari instead of di media sosial. Lebih selamat dan berhemah. Boleh curse sesuka hati sebab takde orang lain yang akan baca dan judge. Hihi.

Some people menerapikan minda dengan sports atau exercise di gym atau sekadar hirup udara segar jogging di taman. Bila tengah dalam mood yang tak menentu it's best to busy kan diri dengan berpeluh jugak. You would concentrate in your work out sampai tak sempat nak simpan perasaan amarah tu lama lama. 

Some people especially yang berseni, can paint ke draw ke or simply just conteng conteng dan doodling. Tips untuk menenangkan hati adalah untuk melukis nature macam langit, laut dan gunung ganang.

Some people pi shopping. Golongan ni bahaya. Kalau kaya takpe lah.

Wishlist #1

Assalamualikum. Hai.

Sebagai manusia biasa dan seorang perempuan (perempuan kan banyak nafsu) memang macam macam benda yang ingin dimiliki. Tapi bila tengok akaun bank, hanya mampu mengesat air mata sebab kehendak tu satu pun tak dapat di-purchase dalam masa terdekat.

Go Pro.


Impian nak memiliki Go Pro ni wujud dalam beberapa bulan yang lalu setelah decided untuk travel ke Bali Januari tahun depan. Masa kecik kecik dulu pernah mengidam nak memiliki dslr and fortunately tak beli sampai sekarang. Bila fikir balik macam membazir je memandangkan aku ni bukan lah fotograper yang profesional dan dslr tu berat untuk di bawa bersama sedangkan Go Pro ni sangat portable dan hasil gambar pun cantik (bagi aku yang bukan fotograper ni lah).

Medifeet.



Medifeet ni jenama kasut kesihatan. Secara kebetulan bulan lepas nak lunch dekat Restoran Simpang Tiga di Ipoh, termasuk pulak kedai Medifeet ni (tapi masa tu hujung bulan so dah takde pitih nak angkut terus). Kasut dia sangat selesa untuk dipakai dan tak sakit walaupun tinggi tumitnya lebih seploh inci (okay, exaggerate je). Lagipun heels aku memang dah nazak nak kena ganti baru hehe.

Helikopter kawalan jauh.



Kecik kecik dulu pernah memiliki kereta kawalan jauh tapi usianya tak dapat nak cecah seploh tahun pun. Sejak pemergian kereta kawalan jauh tersebut, muncul pulak kehendak nak helikopter kawalan jauh tapi umi abah tak pernah berlembut hati untuk bagi. Bila dah besar entah kenapa tak terpikir nak beli benda alah ni sampai lah bila dah bekerjaya, teringat balik kat helikopter ni.

Fossil. 



Aku bukanlah jenis barang barang yang dibeli mesti berjenama tapi memandangkan dah bekerjaya dan mampu ni, apa salahnya memiliki satu dua barang berjenama kan? Jenama aku paling suka ialah Fossil untuk beg dan jam tangan. Perasaan teringin memiliki beg dan jam tangan Fossil muncul sejak dua tiga minggu lepas bila beg yang aku pakai sekarang menunjukkan ciri ciri bakal penghuni tong sampah.

Banyak lagi sebenarnya barang barang idaman tapi kalau senaraikan kat sini memang hujung tahun pun tak habes. Cuma empat perkara di atas menjadi sasaran dalam masa terdekat ni lah. Korang macam mana ? Ada barang barang idaman ? Senaraikan lah, mana tahu esok tetiba muncul depan mata. Haha.

p/s : segala gambar di atas adalah sumber dari Google....bukan hak akuu.

Boros

Assalamualaikum. Hai.

Masa zaman unibersiti, alhamdulillah aku dapat biasiswa JPA. Bebudak JPA memang paling kaya lah dapat rm4000+ untuk satu semester. Namun untuk aku, duit sebanyak itu tak cukup, dan every semester mesti mintak duit tambahan dari umi dan abah (kecuali pada tahun akhir, mungkin sebab dah sedar diri dan pandai berjimat). First time dapat duit gedabak macam tu dan adalah hak aku seratus persen jadi nafsu setan aku untuk boros cukup kuat. Boleh dikatakan hampir setiap minggu sewa kereta, pergi berjoli dan shopping. Jangan tiru perangai setan ini ye adik adik, kesian kat mak ayah (sedu kejap mengenagng kekesalan yang selamanya akan terpahat di hati).

Boros aku takrifkan sebagai perangai setan membuang membelanjakan duit ke arah benda yang sia-sia dan tidak perlu. Contoh yang paling senang, you dah ada handphone samsung yang masih sihat walafiat tapi you tetap beli iphone. Baru ada 'class' kan?

"Sesungguhnya pemboros-pemboros itu adalah saudara-saudara syaitan dan syaitan itu adalah sangat ingkar kepada Tuhannya"
(Al-Isra' ayat 26) 

Punca.

Ikut trend.

Perangai boros ni lebih dimiliki oleh mereka yang muda-muda...macam aku. Haha. Bak kata orang, 'budak baru nak up', baru merasa pegang duit sendiri. Nafsu untuk membelanjakan duit tu memang tinggi lah dengan alasan bukan duit makbapak. Perangai nak ikut trend terkini adalah salah satu punca boros berbelanja. Tudung bawal penuh almari tapi bila trend orang pakai shawl, you pun beli shawl penuh almari jugak. Skirt biasa dah berlambak tapi bila trend orang pakai skirt kembang, you pun borong skirt kembang jugak.

Sikap kebendaan.

Some people tak mampu tapi berlagak mampu. Golongan ni sangat cintakan kemewahan. Tak main lah barang bundle atau kedai tepi jalan ataupun pasar malam. Shopping mesti kat shopping mall, barang berjenama Channel ke, Armani ke, Gucci dan sebagainya. Tak main lah minum kopi di gerai kopi Pak Ali tapi mesti di Starbucks.

Kita kena cepat cepat sedar diri bahawa kemewahan ni bersifat sementara. Kalau terlalu boros sekarang kelak memakan diri di hari tua. Muda muda ni lah kita patut berjimat cermat dan menabung demi masa depan. Takkan muda ni nak tinggal dalam istana tapi tua nanti tepi longkang?

A Cheating Husband. Yea or Nay ?

Assalamualaikum. Hai.

Aku ade tengok drama 'cinta si wedding planner' dan 'isteri vs tunang'. Persamaan kedua dua drama ini adalah A CHEATING HUSBAND. Yass, capslock menunjukkan betapa aku benci dengan lelaki yang curang terhadap pasangan samada dia sekadar seorang boyfriend apetah lagi kalau seorang suami. Dan dalam kedua dua drama tersebut si isteri adalah sangat mulia bak malaikat sebab memaafkan suami mereka dan kembali bersama, happily ever after.

Aku takde boyfriend. Apetah laki husband. Takde jugak pengalaman ditipu lelaki, dicurang. So aku mungkin tak layak untuk bagi nasihat to perempuan perempuan mahupun isteri isteri untuk tidak memafkan pasangan anda yang curang but I do have the hak untuk bagi pendapat kan? So bagi aku, a cheating husband is a big NO. Second chance ? Never. Aku rasa aku prefer rasa sakit divorce and hidup sendiri rather than bersama the cheating husband, pretend like nothing happened. 

Punca.

Banyak kat media sekarang ade berita punca pasangan ada affair adalah disebabkan berhubung thru whatsapp, fesbuk dan sebagainya. Yep, aku akui zaman sekarang punya teknologi memang canggih, boleh cari ex ex korang ke lubang cacing, confirm jumpa. Tak perlu upah penyiasat persendirian macam dolu dolu. 

Ini kembali pada diri sendiri memasing lah. Kalau dah berumah tangga tu, we should sedar diri dan jaga batas pergaulan dengan the opposite sex supaya tak timbul masalah hati digoyang orang ketiga.Simple, jangan layan orang ketiga yang cuba mendekati. 

Contoh paling senang ialah contact just perihal kerja dan benda penting seperti nak jemput kenduri. Kalau sekadar mesej seperti "hai, you tengah buat apa?" atau "you dah makan? Makan apa?" tak perlu lah balas. Confirm individu tersebut cuma nak bual kosong dan nak tackle you. Tanya khabar atas dasar kawan lama? Atau bestfriend? Bullshit itu semuaa.

Poligami.

“Nikahilah wanita – wanita yang kamu senangi ; dua, tiga, dan empat. Dan apabila kalian khawatir tidak dapat berlaku adil, maka satu cukup atau budak – budak yang kamu miliki. Yang demikian itu adalah lebih dekat kepada tidak berbuat aniaya.” 
(QS. An – Nisa (4) : 3).

Ye, memang Islam membolehkan poligami dan isteri yang rela dimadukan akan diberi 'payung emas' ketika di padang mahsyar nanti. Mulia darjat isteri seperti ini dan suami yang mampu berlaku adil. Aku respect actually dekat isteri isteri yang boleh terima dimadukan, berkongsi suami. 

I couldn't even imagine perasaan seorang isteri bila dapat tahu suaminya nak kawen lagi satu. Even if si suami boleh berlaku adil. Tapi sebagai manusia biasa, tahap keadilan tu susah jugak kan kite nak nilai especially perasaan kasih sayang tu. Tak rasa ke macam "he loves her more" ? 

So. A cheating husband. What do you say ? Yea or nay?

Penang

Selalunya dalam group whatsapp member yang rapat rapat, kekadang dalam sebulan sekali mesti keluar topik travelling. Plan nak ke travel Asia lah, Europe lah, dengan member member sebelum kahwin. And finally, the first ever trip dengan member aku was last week, pergi Penang. Okayla for a start kan, local je. And bertiga je, dengan Muni dan Am. Sedih, sebab perancangan awal actually berlima tapi the other two tetiba stuck dengan kerja. Demm your boss. Haha.

Kerja hari Jumaat tu aku memang dah tak senang duduk. Tak sabar gila nak gerak Penang, mood vacation tu dah menghantui malam sebelum lagi. So last last ambik keputusan untuk half day je. Nasib baik ofis aku pun senang je nak bagi leave yang secara mengejut. So by 3.00pm aku dah gerak, drive dari Kangar, Perlis ke Georgetown, Penang. 2 jam setengah perjalanan sampai ke hotel, 56 Red Inn dekat Love Lane. Ni first time jugak aku stay jenis hotel budget macam ni, just rm30 per bed untuk satu malam. Kitorang ambik dua malam. 

Sampai hotel pon dah 5.30pm so just rilek rilek kat hotel then kitorang gerak ke Gurney Paragon Mall untuk dinner dan tengok movie Deadpool. Oh, Deadpool was fun because of the funny scenes tapi bagi aku, overall jalan cerita just so so la. Takley lawan Avengers. 

Pagi esoknya, liat jugakla memasing nak bagun last last gerak dalam pukul 10.30am. Kitorang gerak Bayan Lepas, cari tiket bas untuk Muni then gerak Kapitan untuk breakfast. Harapan nak makan briyani claypot tinggal harapan sebab katanya tak siap lagi. Roti pon dah habes sebab dah lewat. Kecewa. And aku pun baru tau yang kedai mamak kat Penang ni kalau lepas 10.00am memang roti dah habes. Kalau kat tempat lain 24jam ade roti so kejutan budaya jugak la masa tu. Takde pilihan lain, makan nasi kandar je pagi tu. Bagus jugak sebab tahan kenyang sampai petang.

Lepas breakfast, kitorang gerak Bukit Bendera. Eksaited jugak aku sebab tak pernah pergi. Dalam sejam lebih jugak perjalanan ke Bukit Bendera sebab salah jalan. Naik Bukit Bendera pakai train dia, murah rm6 je. Lain kali nak try naik pakai kaki. Lain kali la.

Lama jugak la lepak Bukit Bendera dalam pukul 2.00pm baru turun. Then terus gerak ke Batu Feringgi. Lepak Batu Feringgi sampai petang, just rilek rilek usha six packs and main frisbee. Nak balik Georgetown petang tu, ingatkan nak makan kat Esplanade so terus gerak ke Esplanade then stucked dalam jammed. Lama gila nak dekat sejam jugak stucked sebab rupanya ada event Chinese New Year malam tu. So kitorg patah balik, parking kat hotel je and jalan kaki ke Esplanade. Dinner dan jalan jalan dekat event CNY tu. Interesting sebab first time pergi event CNY, kat Penang pulak tu which is memang tempat yang meriah kalau sambut CNY.

Rasa macam cepat gila masa berlalu, the next morning kitorang check out dalam pukul 11.00am, breakfast kat Kapitan Georgetown pulak. Luckily dapat try briyani claypot tapi Muni kecewa sebab dah takde roti. Lepas breakfast, kitorang just jalan kaki along Armenian street and ke Chew Jetty.
