Life Must Go On

When the water has run dry, sit and watch for the rising clouds.

Hello, Roomie!

Wednesday, May 31, 2017

Last month marks the beginning of my second year living in this Sharing House and just last week, a colleague of mine decided to live with me and the reason why she gave up her place which literally 30 steps away from our office due to the building is having a major renovation. With all the noise throughout the day and night, her panda eyes is less than a concern compared to the hygiene and security issues with third of the building had been teared open. With that, after leaving my university days for more than 3 years, I'm having a roommate again and I welcome her with arms wide open.

When it comes to transportation, we usually take bus in the morning and went back by UBER or Grab; ride-hailing services. As we both usually take heavy food during the day, we don't cook for dinner though I actually already bought extra plates and mugs for her but it's okay as we do use them during weekends.

I have to say that it's gonna take awhile for me to get used to having someone in my room as I usually hang out at cafe after work while she went straight home.We totally lead different kind of lives and as I already know her as we work together the past year, she's pretty much the same in the office and while at home. She's chilled and relax. It's sort of amazing to me how she's not for lack of a better word, nosy unlike my previous roommates (oh, that exclude a Japanese roommate I once have in first year). No matter how late the time I arrived home, she didn't say anything. Or how I binge-watch drama deep into the night and feeling sleepy throughout the next day. 

All in all, things are rather fine when it comes to us living together. We totally have nothing in common but we sure have love for cute, sushi-looking Big Apple doughnuts. Though it's just our first few weeks, I'm pretty sure it'll be okay for the upcoming months. Maybe even years? 

I'll catch up with you guys next time!

10 Days In

Wednesday, June 15, 2016
It's been 10 days since us Muslims performing our obligations in this Holy month of Ramadhan.

I haven't had any problem adjusting during the day but getting up at 3 in the morning is still difficult. I at least snoozed my alarm for 3 times.

Sigh. Still aiming to become a better Muslim.

Praying while at work is definitely not easy as there's no provided space to Solat so i make do everyday to pray in the Account Department. Alhamdulillah.

Ya Allah, please make me a stronger person while facing your challenges in throughout this Ramadhan~ amin.

Ramadhan 1437H

Monday, June 6, 2016
Ramadhan comes again. I pray that we all can go through this Holy month and become a better Muslim by the end of it.

One of the things that I have made myself promise is to not buying food from bazaar. The reason is definitely because I want to encourage myself to cook healthy food at home and sharing house. Less sweet food as well.

6 Weeks In

Tuesday, May 24, 2016


So it's been about a month and a half since I moved into this Sharing House. Yep. That's what I call the house that I'm renting currently. Overall, I find my housemates are really into their own routines as some of them have been living in the house for about 5 years.

While the others have been living for about 2 to 3 years but I don't really know about them much as I never actually get to sit with them and chat.

Then there are the new ones like me who moved in about 2 weeks before me and these girls are always doing stuffs together. I tried to be among them for the first few weeks but I gave up recently. It's hard for me to intervene in their conversations as it always about them and most importantly, I don't have much in common with any of those girls.

I usually arrived around 6 in the evening at the house and I haven't started planning to cook dinner for myself yet so I usually just go up to my room right away, watching drama, shower and then off to bed like 9 p.m. haha I know! As someone who used to sleep like 2 in the morning, having to wake up early means I need to sleep early as I usually take some time to get up. But recently, I usually get up the latest at 6 a.m., be the first to shower, and getting dressed at 7 a.m. and off to work. I'm taking the bus most of the time as I don't want to drenched in my own sweat if I were to walk to the office in the morning.

I walked home most of the time but if I were to work extra hours, I usually get a ride home with my colleague or to somewhere in KK where I meet my parents for dinner. They'll send me home right after.

So that's pretty much my routine during the weekdays. It's beautifully boring I tell you. But still, I'm grateful to Allah and hopefully I can mend my parents' broken hearts bit by bit.

Sharing House 2.0

Sunday, April 17, 2016

The last time I lived in a rental house was back in 2009.

As commuting to my work place is quite time-consuming with mum having to drive me 6 in the morning to avoid traffic and pick me up in the evening right after work, I figured it's better to just get a room to rent that isn't so far from the office.

So I went on and listed out like 10 possible places to rent and went for room hunting yesterday. The first place was Chanyai Villa in Likas. It's about 20 minutes walk from my office and it was a small studio apartment with 2 girls looking for a third roommate. The whole place was a mess and it's so hot in there. We went to the next location right after.

The next place is actually a double-story house in Taman Likas and from the look of it, all my neighbors probably have been living in that neighborhood for more than 30 years if not a third generation at least. The windows are made of old-fashioned grilled with wooden panels, the switches are yellowish, probably aged 20 years, there's even old air-condition on the wall...

But I decided to choose that place as it's only 15 minutes walk from the office and the house is actually quite nice. I haven't really meet my housemates yet so hopefully all of them are good people.


Thinking About Life

Monday, September 14, 2015
It's been over 6 months since I moved back to Sabah and I'm pretty much settled in.

The one thing I realised ever since I got back is I no longer have friends that I can hang out with. Friends that are single and have no other life commitment.

I really miss my best friend especially on days like this. Where I just wanna go out and have fun with my best girl.

Not gonna happen any time soon I guess. Sigh

Anyway, Happy Birthday, babe! Just know I always love you and I hope you will finally get the happiness that you seek i.e. getting married! haha

The First Photo

This was taken at The Coffee Bean cafe. We're excited to go to the next shopping mall I think.

ah~ suddenly I miss that Charles & Keith backpack!

Rasa Ingin Tahu?

Thursday, August 14, 2014
Segalanya bermula kira-kira dalam 2 atau 3 semester yang lepas. Sesungguhnya aku pun tidak pasti.

Setiap kali kami terjumpa, dengan tidak sengaja aku akan melihat dia dari atas sampai ke bawah dan dia juga begitu.

... dan setiap kali itulah kami akan berkerut dahi sambil memerhatikan satu sama lain.

Pelik sangatkah aku? Hodoh sangatkah aku? Selekeh sangatkah aku? ... banyak persoalan bermain di minda pada setiap kali kejadian itu berlaku.

Pada kali pertama, aku masih ingat lagi akan waktu itu di mana aku sedang dalam perjalanan menuju ke kelas dan mungkin dia juga begitu, kami saling terpandang, walhal masing-masing sedang khusyuk bermain telefon pintar sendiri 5 saat sebelumnya.

Pada kali kedua atau ketiga, mungkin juga keempat, aku terperasan dia duduk selang tiga atau empat kerusi di dalam bas menuju ke stesen LRT. Setiap kali aku memandang ke arahnya, dia berpaling.

Mungkin... aku sahaja yang berperasan sebegini.

Pertemuan kali ke... entah berapa, aku ternampak dia sedang menikmati secawan kopi di luar Starbucks.

Oh, mungkin dia juga pergi ke kafe yang sama denganku, fikirku lagi.

Sudah agak lama kejadian-kejadian itu berlaku sehinggalah hari ini, aku bertemu dia lagi dan bermulah rutin kami setiap kali terjumpa.

Namun kali ini, terdetik di hati seolah-olah timbul sesuatu yang mungkin kurang menyenangkan di fikiran si dia kerana dia memandangku dengan serba tidak kena.

Apakah dia berasa aku mengekorinya seperti orang gila?

Pelik. Sungguh pelik.

Walaupun pada dasarnya kami pergi ke universiti yang sama, kafe Starbucks yang kami pergi itu adalah cawangan yang terdekat dari universiti, dan selain dari tempat-tempat itu, kami tidak terjumpa di tempat lain.

Mungkin ini semua hanya satu kebetulan.


Looking Back

Sunday, March 16, 2014
I have to admit, after living for about 8 years far from my family, I feel like as I'm on the edge whenever someone asked me about my feelings all this time. 

Truth is, I've always want to come home and just live a simple life. 

Staying at home, being just a regular kampung girl. Gathering with some girls laughing with me at malam badak on Saturday nights and having occasional shopping spree at KK while looking forward to social gatherings in the village. 

... I'm not saying that's all what typical village girls are doing but... I was like that.. at least in my teenage years. 

It's just that during those times, I feel so carefree and.. happy. 

I've noticed that whenever I come home, some of my relatives were like talking about my fashion sense and whatnot... saying I should have been wearing this and that... instead of this and that... pointing out why I don't even wear makeups... sigh. I don't know that living in KL means I have to be on pointy stilettos, wearing the latest fashion item, know where the local celebs hanging out and put on makeups while shopping for kitchen supplies. Well, I know. Sounds exaggerating, at least the last part.  

I started living in KL when I was just turning 18 and back then I feel I'm going to finish my studies like in just few years and honestly, I'm still not sure whether I'm on the right track or not.

Yep, I feel lost. 

Trip to Labuan

Saturday, February 8, 2014

Honestly.... I haven't transferred the photos that I took using my Nikon D5100 so yeah. For now these are the ones that I can share with you guys. LOL

Above photos are basically the ones that I took using my iPhone while we're on the huge ferry as we're leaving the island. 

I've been on the island for merely 2 days and one night, so there are not much I can say about this trip other than shopping on perfumes and chocolates. Believe me, the prices are crazy! I bought my Salvatore Ferragamo Signorina EDT and EDP miniatures for merely RM80! Miniatures aren't meant to be sold but I was so tempted to get them as it's great for travelling. 

So yeah, I'll update some more when I transferred those photos into my all-in-one later. 

Until then, take care!
