His Will

Blog

For everything happens at His will, and He will surely suffice.

***

Sometimes in our lowest moment when we feel most helpless, Allah reveals a treasure to us when we least expect it.

It might be a friendship that blossoms because of a need, a deeper insight into life’s meaning, a sudden attachment to the Quran, a tear that we learn to shed in supplication, etc.

But surely, when Allah takes something away from us, He gives us something greater in it’s place. Aaminnn.

Hugs and Love.

Time of Devotion

Blog, Health

Muslim around the world welcome the Holy Month of Ramadhan in May, when we fast from dawn to dusk. The first day of Ramadhan , called Awal Ramadhan, falls on May 17 (subject to change) this year. It also a public holiday Brunei Darussalam, as well as in the Malaysian states of Kedah, Melaka & Johor.

Breaking the Fast

Ramadhan – a period of reflection and prayer. An important observance during the month is fasting, which takes place from dawn to dusk.

The Iftar (breaking of fast) meal is a joyous occasion. Usually enjoyed with family and friends. Dates are often savored with milk, water or tea. Or we can enjoy it just as it is. High in sugar, fibre and minerals, dates are easily digested and a quick source of energy  and nutrients. Eating dates after a fast also helps the body’s blood glucose levels quickly return to normal.

Happy Fasting!

Shift Happens

Top News

Technological innovations have borne jobs that never existed a decade or so ago. Now, there are data scientists with software engineering skills, whose job it is to extract and interpret raw data into clean, comprehensible information; and cloud architects, who are IT specialists in cloud computing design, management, deployment and monitoring.

The vocations are indispensable in today’s business world, and what they lack in history, they make up for in demand. The average salary is between USD10,000 and USD15,000 per month!

I’m in awe, is that really happening? Give a try folks 😀

On the Spot – Many social media platforms with live stream have been successfully applied to ‘training’ events. One idea is you can have your marketing or sales team go live weekly to demonstrate how your product or service works.

Having said, I should’ve applied for my product many moons ago! Lol

Fab Fats

Fun Fact:

Ketogenic Diets involve low carbohydrate and high healthy fat intakes. In a low carb environment, the body switches from burning body fat for fuel. Paired with exercise, this can promote WEIGHT LOSS. Yes, you heard it right!

The keto diet is also known to help control seizures in epileptic patients, although the precise biochemical process is still being researched.

Hope it helps!

Fandom

Blog

Read: A fandom is a group, or community, of people who like a game, book, or specific topic. Usually on social media, a fandom is not a uncommon sight.

In that case, maybe I should try being a little more direct. Well? Can you hear what my heart is saying? 

Yuzu,

Inside of me, when it concerns my feelings for you, I have a part of that’s “good”, but also a part that’s “bad”.

Knowing that, do you still want to take a peek inside of me?

For me, nothing says contentment like flavorful cup of coffee and an absorbing book, one can get lost in for hours.

To get my happiness fix, a personal favorite place is a must. I must say my favorite is the GRAPH, One Nimman, Chiang Mai. There you have it – a brewed coffee for the body, mind and soul.

A nice place to experience cold brew coffee in various styles. Yes, you heard me, in various styles and a tad modern twist.

All in one go!

Sail Away

Blog, Travelling

 

Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn’t do than by the ones you did. So throw off the bowlines, Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails.  Explore. Dream. Discover.  


– Mark Twain

 

Traveling,
I love the excitement of it all–feeling like an explorer–discovering a new land, a new language, a new culture and all the little challenges that go along with it. I am more spontaneous and don’t live for the future or the past just in the moment. Being impulsive and saying ‘yes’ to nearly everything is part of the fun.

Traveling has not only been something that I do, but it has been something that has become a part of me. Having said, traveling is not only a way to get away—it’s a way to learn and experience life through different cultures and pushing yourself outside of your comfort zone. If you haven’t gotten to travel before, start somewhere small and close.

I know it can be quite intimidating to go somewhere where you don’t belong to, but I promise that it helps you grow as a person and change your persepective about life.  The best part are, you’ll always get to experience and learn something new everyday. Having a travel bucket list is always a fun idea. I like to write down places that I would like to travel someday, so when you do visit, you get to cross it off the list!

Welcome 2018

Blog, Travelling

 

New beginnings 🎉

Every experience in my life is orchestrated to teach me something I need to know to move forward. Life always seem so perfect in social media. I try to be as real and true to myself as possible, albeit my life may seem perfect, it’s not. It’s nowhere close to that. But I’m grateful with what I have now -imperfectly perfect. Couldn’t been better.

The richest person isn’t the one who has the most, but the one who needs the least. Wealth is a mindset. Have less and appreciate more.

Be thankful for your life, your health, family & friends and your home. Many people don’t have these things. Be grateful. Be humble. Be teachable.

The world is bigger than what we ever imagine of. There’s always a chance, a room, a space to improve and grow. Don’t criticize or judge people who’s trying hard to get up from zero, hard and bad time. We deserve a life chance to grow and get better.

Perspective is everything. Traveling has given me a deeper appreciation for my life and has sharpened my mindset and outlooks on things. What you see is my perspective, what I choose to see. The beauty and moments where my heart lies. ♥️
