So, you happen to have a week of Christmas break and you feel like going somewhere but you have a tight budget. Where would you go?
Well, I chose Malacca. Why?
Because I get to shop, eat and take beautiful photos while still following my tight budget.
What i can recommend from this trip is that whenever you visit Melaka, make sure to taste the oh so tasty "Cendol durian" besides the Malacca river, take pictures at Pantai Klebang (which can make you look like you're in Egypt) and also to have a dinner at Restoran Ikan Bakar Sungai Duyung( because it's super cheap and tasty).
For women that love adventurous activities in the wood, there are definitely a long list of things that you need to consider to ensure a smooth trekking. Out of all the aspects, your comfort should be your number one priority and this, starts with your SHOES.
Yeap ladies you heard me right, SHOES
Let me tell you why.
Ever heard the word "blisters"? Most importantly, have you ever felt the excruciating pain of foot blisters?
For those who have experienced this would certainly agree that a good and comfortable pair of shoes plays a major role in preventing this from happening. This is extra important for ladies who will spend hours in the wood. So, the solution is? ....
A pair of comfortable sneakers with a slight hint of style from Zalora
Plus, the sneakers are super duper comfortable to run and walk in for a long distance without having you getting foot blisters.
But, what if you discovered a hidden waterfall or lake along your journey and you just wanna take a dip without ignoring your safety?
A flip-flop of course!
Flip flops is a must to carry along especially when you are resting or about to take a dip in a lake. The best thing about flip flops is that it allows you to free your legs after a long day wearing covered shoes. Besides that, the flip flops are thin and not heavy to stuff in your backpack.
What if you're the kind of woman who is not only adventurous, but also stylish? What's the win-win choice for you?
No worries ladies. Zalora has got the answers for you
Just imagine, you can travel in the nature admiring the beauty of flora and fauna with stylish boots the entire day. Plus, boots also has that certain element which helps boost up your confidence and mood into a positive vibe.
One blog post is definitely not enough for me to cover on the wide range of shoes in Zalora and that's why you should check out Zalora now. I guarantee that it will cater to every single needs and wants of yours.
So what are you still waiting for? Gooooooo check out Zalora nowwww !
It has been so long since I updated this old blog of mine. There have been so many things happening all at the same time that almost made me feel like giving up. Like I don't know if I can endure this any longer.
My first test started as soon as I received my IB result. Getting 35 points, I can't really feel happy eventhough for others it would mean that the points would have definitely passed to fly overseas. Because my story is way different than others. But still, I tried going to MARA office, Peneraju office to appeal but somehow I found a dead end. So I thought well that's it. I'm just gonna continue local then.
But then, I got an email from UCAS stating that there has been a change in my uni application and as I checked, I found out that I got an unconditional offer from my dream university, University College London. I would have jumped except for the fact that I knew my sponsor would not send me there because I didn't get 36 points.
A friend of mine motivated me to remark my paper because I'm only one point away from getting 36. So I did. And hope starting to blossom again. While waiting for the remark, I did try contacting other scholarship but the answers all the same. It's whether the date has been closed or they didn't sponsor medical students anymore.
While waiting for the result, I was tested again as I heard the news of my big brother that suffered second degree burn when his house was burnt down due to short circuit. Watching your own brother clenching his teeth to endure the pain, I felt numb. It was really hard seeing the person you care about suffering so much and there's so little that you can do.
And the remark result came out. My result did not change and there goes my last hope to study in ucl.
Hope after hopes crushed, I started to feel hopeless. I thought maybe I'm supposed to give up then.
But wallahi, every single time that thought crossed my mind, Allah showed me how others are tested way harder than I am right now. Going to the hospital back and forth every day to take care of my brother, I saw others that are in so much more pain than what I'm going through. There are others that have to sacrifice so much more for their loved ones.
And so I realise that He's trying to teach me something through this. He's trying to show me that there are better things waiting for me. And as long as I remember that He never leave my side, I'm going to be just fine.
So, here is a verse that He gave to me when I was so tired fighting for my dream and Subhanallah.. indeed there is no words as beautiful as His ;)
The thing about us human is that, we plan and we work hard to achieve our goals and when we fail, we felt so disappointed we forgot that Allah is the best planner of all. And I, was one of them. I forgot.
I forgot that despite of how hard I studied to achieve my dream to study overseas, despite of how tired I was when I went to and fro to my college, Pejabat MARA and pejabat Peneraju to appeal, the thing is when it's written so, you can try so hard but still you can't change it.
And so I learnt the value of acceptance the hard way.
The same way I will learn to embrace my new journey here. May Allah ease
Here's to the most amazing, caring and loving person I have ever met, my mom
Happy 58th birthday ma,
I miss you so much over these years,
That i grew numb to the pain,
Eventhough by mere eyes i cannot see you,
But I feel you,
Flowing through my vein,
Through every lonely night I faced missing you,
Through all the times I thought I was done but your memories keep me going,
Through every happiness I wish you'd be there watching me,
I love you mom,
And I never meant to make it past tense,
Because it's a forever thing,
It's the kind of love I would keep for the rest of my life,
You know why?
Because loving you is so effortless,
And painful at times,
But it hurts me in a good way,
In a way it reminds me how losing you taught me to grow up,
And I did ma,
And i know you're always watching me,
And i hope i make you proud,
