My answer to your question

Who doesn't want to get married in young age? and me? 24 isn't young anymore. By now most of my friends are getting married, planning on honeymoon with husband and some of them already get pregnant! Whenever i bumped into those married couples or baru-nak-kahwin-couple, the same question coming out of their mouths. Truth to be told, i'm already getting used to it---
Bila nak kahwin?

I know. It's torturing. Peer pressure.

I know they got good intention, they cared for me so they wanted to know more about me and my relationship. But asking bila nak kahwin bila nak kahwin so many times while you guys are getting married real soon?? That was so wrong on so many levels, guys. You guys don't even know the struggles we've been through. Sometimes, i do get offended when my people asking me stuff like this. I know they didn't mean to hurt me with that question but i am a human, bro. I do have feeling and i get offended easily :)))
But that's not really the point. My point is, everyone wants to get married but not everyone is lucky like you. It's just a matter of time. 

I don't know. 

I always think if i ever get married by now, i'm a selfish. My parents gave almost everything i want, they gave me a perfect life, good education and i can't simply drop them just like that. I gotta do something to repay everything they did for me until what i am today. But if your parents let you to get married now, then you're lucky. You got their back so keep going.

Some of my friends said "kalau nak tunggu semua cukup sampai bila pun kau tak kahwin!" or even worst
"kahwin jelah untuk elak maksiat"
"kahwin dulu, rezeki datang kemudian"
"kahwin itu sunnah"
Deep inside of my heart, i wanted to get married as early as i can but God always has a better plan for me; for us.
Perkahwinan bukanlah satu pertandingan siapa kahwin dulu dia bahagia atau siapa kahwin cepat dia menang. No such thing.

I know someday, i will get married, i will have beautiful kids, i'm pretty sure i'm gonna own a big house with fancy stuff, driving expensive car and i'll be on plane with my loving-handsome husband. My time will come and i will patiently waiting for the day to come. Good thing takes time, remember?
I'm not saying that i want everything to be perfect but i just want everything to be great after i get married. And you gotta know, perfect and great are two different things ;P 

Married life sounds great but there's a lot to take in. You know, two things became one. It ain't easy like what you seeing everyday in movie, it's more than just that. 

Let's hope for good things to happen rather than complaining, questioning or maybe wondering. You pray for me and i'll pray for you as well :)
inshaAllah, he knows the best.

Thank you for reading!

What's good in ipoh?

Assalamualaikum!

Good food & rare stuff. These two things are the only reasons why i always wanted to be there again and again.. i've been there more than three times and i came just because of food. Yes guys ain't kidding about that and you must be surprised. I know.

So, what's good mate? I listed out a few things that you can find in ipoh so yeah... You guys should check it out.


Usually i went to ipoh during weekends and i akan bertolak at 7am so i akan sampai around 10am from shah alam. I don't mind waking up early in the morning just for the sake of breakfast food in New Hollywood. Ok, like this one. This is my all time favourite and must meal everytime i come to ipoh. It is a chinese food! They have two choices which are chicken and prawn but my usual is always chicken chee cheong fan cuz i'm kinda allergy to prawn. So, chicken it is.


Don't be too suprised others can eat more than me. *blink eye* My second meal in New Hollywood is this one! It tastes like mee biasa but inside it they put cendawan, ayam and kicap. I can't remember its name so you gotta and look around the place ya.


I didn't like this one because i don't eat telur kuning but for telur goyang lover i'm sure you gonna like this. 

foods in new hollywood

Ohh!! They also got pudding caramel and kuih bakul. It's available at the other stall. You guys can order dekat luar but still can sit makan in New Hollywood. Cool innit? Hmm.. i miss that! I miss having breakfast in there with all these chinese, indian people eating together at one place. You know the feeling i have for ipoh is kinda unreasonable. Hahaha
Location : New Hollywood Canning Garden


After had my breakfast, around 12.30pm you guys boleh lah rasa ice kepal dekat Plan B! It is just a small shop at Plan B and yeah people will drop by there and lepak-lepak, take photos and stuff. Anyways, a lot of flavour offered but my favourite is roselle ice kepal. It tastes really niceeeeee! I still can feel it in my tongue. Told ya i'm being dramatic. 
Location : Kong Heng Square (Plan B)


This is how i do. Cehhhh semua orang makan style macam ni so yeah.... it's a trend so why not give it a try mueheheh =p


The only curry meal yang i paling suka. Fyi, i don't eat curry food (to be specific mamak food LOL). Not that i'm a picky person but i don't like rempah that kind of stuff. If i ain't got no choice my last option would be curry :> So, this is the only nasi ganja/nasi kandar yang i boleh makan.. Kalau you come over but you tak try, you rugi okay. I can eat two plates in one time! How's that? hehehe
Location : Nasi Ganja Yong Suan 


Laksa telur bersarang. Yes, people! imma laksa lover. Before i discovered this place, i've read somewhere on facebook that they've best laksa in town. So, i cari sampai jumpa and finally i found it! The first i went takada lagi stall beside their shop but now if korang pergi korang akan nampak banyak stall yang jual various food and drink so i think it's cool. A bit far from ipoh town but i think it's worth it. Telur goreng bersarang dia rangup macam keropok tau. I never tasted it before so masa i makan i was like mashaAllah this is like a real heaven on earth!! Loved it!!
Location : Laksa Telur Bersarang Taman Seri Botani


But if you guys ada somewhere in manjoi area, you guys boleh try juga Laksa Saranghae! I heard rumors this one way better than laksa telur bersarang (well, actually it's the same. laksa with telur rangup)  but because they also serve mix fruits so takpayah lah korang pergi ipoh dessert street dekat Tong Sui Kai semata-mata untuk mixed fruits. I know ipoh's cool. Damn, why am i writing this post on night and currently far far away from ipoh? Haih! Anyway, the shop close on Sunday tau!
Location : Laksa Saranghae Manjoi


Before headed back to Shah Alam, i singgah petit mary buying some breads and cakes untuk makan-makan dalam kereta. My boyfriend approved so i guess this is nice place to chill. You know, lepak makan roti or desserts sambil minum air mineral is our thing so yeah........................ :> i like this place too! 

I know you guys will be like "oh-em-gee banyak nya kau makan tapi tak gemuk pun?" excuse meh, i puasa dua hari before nak pergi food hunting tau! That's why i slim je ;P (joke)

Actually ada banyak lagi kedai makan yang i tak sempat explore lagi. However, i already read the reviews before i went unfortunately,  i can't keep up. But, i definitely will come again for food, obviously. Maybe after this i'll stay for one night with my friends and exploring more food in ipoh.
I like ipoh more than my place you know.. Ipoh got nicest food, coolest small town and most important thing makanan super cheap mana lah nak cari dekat Shah Alam kan.. if i nak settle down if and only my future husband let me choose a place to stay i definitely will go for ipoh. But i understand sometimes dreams do not come true. Hahaha

ANYWAYS, if you're planning drop by during sunday after breakfast you guys boleh pergi Pasar Karat Memory Lane in ipoh town. Banyak rare and antique stuff you can buy and boleh bargain price dekat those uncles yang meniaga dekat situ. Street food pun ada, clothes, tudung and such pon ada.


Location : Pasar Karat Memory Lane

In case you're wondering, even though i went to ipoh several times i tak pernah tidur in ipoh even for one night. So, please don't ask me things like "kat mana eh hotel best to stay in ipoh?" Guys, i don't work there. I took more than three months by reading some reviews on internet. And of course, with some help from my friends who've stayed in ipoh. Like usual, before pergi please please do some extra reading. 
So, i guess that's it. I hope this is helpful in any way!
Hope you remember me when eating those foods *cry* and you can always send some at my doorstep!


Thank you for reading!

My everyday skincare routine

Assalamualaikum!

I tried blogging more often but somehow masa tu lah perasaan malas datang and then suddenly something came out of nowhere thus it's very hard for me to keep blogging.
As promised, in my recent post i wanted to answer any question or give tips regarding anything you require from me and yes i've picked randomly question from my instagram. So lucky and i'm too generous, i know i know.

Ok let's start!
Even I had oily face when i was a teen but my face was perfectly fine takada pimples then one day ada lah this one friend of mine, she asked me to buy her product and at  that time i was totally noob and very desirable nak kulit putih so i bought the local products from her. When i got into these bloody local products my skin suddenly glowing within two weeks and i totally looked like opera cina, very white like snow white. Seriously i tell you.. Unfortunately, i only got excited the first year i used the products coz i started felt uneasy so i did some research on google and it was proven that the products got mercury inside. Surprisingly, it could lead to skin cancer!! I was so scared then i bragged and meroyan like crazy takut lah kan mana tahu bila my putih-glow-skin will turn out to something terrible. I tell you, it was.

this pic was taken a year ago

For your information, i was having breakouts on my skin one year ago after i stopped using this one local product. I never had blackheads but after i stopped, eh dia duk mai pulak... lepastu whitehead and then the pimples pun taknak kalah berlumba-lumba dok datang atas muka ni. Then, the pimples leave black scars and it wasn't normal. haish, poning den..

At that moment, i always felt insecure, taknak selfie or upload gambar kat instagram coz that bloody thing. So, i stopped using the local product a month and then my boyfriend introduced me Himalaya products which good but it doesn't work so well on me pun. I mean, it heals my skin but somehow i feel the products didn't improve my skin or tak buatkan warna kulit i sekata or tak glowing compared to before. But it still good though coz my skin wasn't bad as before. Stick to Himalaya for one year because i was too scared to change another product takut if i tukar my skin akan jadi lebih horrible. You see, i'm paranoid ='(

And since i am too rajin googling and found out many information about skincare products, i tried many of them. But, of course la i usually go for drug store products coz for me it is definitely safe =')

So my currently skincare products are.. well, actually quite a lot and it came from various brands, yup.

I've two different types of cleansing form yang i guna but it comes from same brand. Satu i guna masa pagi and the other one for malam.

These three scrubs are my favooooooourite! It smells so good, 100% natural ingredient, dermatologists tested and paraben free as well. I absolutely loooooooove it. I love trying out new scrub but so far these are the best.

My previous toner was himalaya and hada labo. I didn't like them so much coz it made my skin straight dry up and it feels really uncomfortable. So i bought these two recently just to try it on and guess what? It is great. Jelita.KL i bought from my friend it makes my skin fresh and Mars toner i purchased online from Mars. As usual, i went through reviews first and the feedback mostly said okay so i guess no harm trying.

Left: my day cream. Right: night cream.
Oh and by the way i'm changing Himalaya products to Bio Essence coz i think it suits on my skin well. I want to look natural without any make-ups so, day cream helps me a lot on that :)

These two act as moisturizer! I gotta admit aloevera gel from Guardian save my face from dryness. Organic aid tu pon okay jugak but not really my type, i must say. 

Besides scrub, I also love pampering my face with mask once a week. I just bought clay mask from Jelita.KL a month ago and it feels good as well. But honestly i prefer face mask from Himalaya.
Right: The only product from Himalaya that i've been using up until right now. You guys only know the truth when you try this on your face. This is just too good. I guna twice a week and i like the feeling water washing off the exfoliants and dead skin off of my face makes me feel owh-semmm! Compared with clay mask, maybe my blackhead/whitehead terlalu degil so i think it only worked 60% on my face.


So mesti you all macam "banyak nya skincare tak takut ke if breakout lagi?" Honestly for me, i didn't mind spending money on skincare cuz you know it's my face mannnnnnn.. hahaha kidding! Skincare product is like try and error kind of stuff.  I don't know if these products may help you in the future, perhaps it works on me but not on you. I strongly believe brand doesn't matter but it's the effectiveness on your skin. Tapi jangan lah simply nak ambil jalan mudah by using local products. My advice is, before nak cuba any product please be rajin. Do some research, browsing internet to look up on the reviews especially ingredient yang ada dalam that product.

Anyway, no matter what beauty drink, collagen, vitamin you consume everyday or whatever available in the market right now, i'm still stick to taking care of my skin by using the right skincare products and eating right. I avoid drinking carbonated drinks and try my very best drink at least 2 liter of mineral water per day. 
Hence, i hope it helps and good luck!


Fun Fact: fyi, oily skin slower rate of aging!

Hijrah

Some people might say Hijrah is hard, Hijrah is tiring, Hijrah is scary or Hijrah is unacceptable. If you ask me, macam mana kalau kita buat satu perubahan tapi tak consistent? Hari ni pakai labuh esok pakai senteng pula.. Hari ni buat baik esok buat dosa lagi.. Jangan risau, kalau belum istiqamah tapi niat kau baik, Tuhan tengok effort tau. Tuhan pasti akan mudahkan. Sikit-sikit lama-lama jadi bukit, kan? :)

Hijrah is easy if you believe in yourself and you ignore what people will say about your changes.
Contohnya, dulu kau tak kisah langsung bab solat tapi sekarang kau dah mula ambil wuduk dan bentang tikar sejadah.
atau mungkin dulu kau tak suka tolong orang tapi hari ni bila kawan kau kata dia takada duit nak makan and she needs your help so you give her rm10, that is a hijrah to me.

Hijrah is subjective. It's not about changing your physical looks only but it's about how you treat people, it's about the way you think dulu childish sekarang dah matured or it's about how you deal with your surrounding. It is about;
"dulu biasa-biasa now better"
Tak kiralah apa-apa perubahan baik yang kau lakukan dulu kau tak pernah buat tapi sekarang kau dah start buat, itu lah hijrah sebenar untuk diri kau.
Hijrah ni bukannya sebab kau nak nampak alim dan di pandang mulia semata but you do hijrah to be better, better than the old version of you. Remember that.

Tapi hidayah tak sampai-sampai, macam mana ni?
You have to look for it, you gotta fight for it. Betul, hidayah memang milik Allah but if you really want it, seek for it. Hidayah tak datang dari langit, macam tu juga rezeki tak datang bergolek. Kau kena kerja keras to earn the money, same goes to hidayah. Kalau kau tak start cari sampai bila-bila kau tak akan jumpa. So start lah cari dari sekarang, mana tahu jumpa?

Joy

Having a partner (unmarried) who refused holding your hands in public doesn't mean he doesn't love you, doesn't mean you're unlovable, doesn't mean you guys are not happy.

He's a genious but you're blind.

Wearing syariah compliance clothes doesn't mean you're ugly, doesn't mean you outdated, doesn't mean you're not stylish.

She's a genious but you're moronic.

Jangan prejudiskan tindakan manusia. People do what they feel right and happy. So, do you. Kalau kau rasa membuka aib sendiri satu tindakan yang bernas, go on. Nobody stops you.

Options yang relevant

I never wanted to do what I am doing right now. I never had the options. Butang a, b, c dan e adalah jawapan yang sama. Tiada talian hayat. Keliling langsung tak cuba untuk memahami. At first, I understand and follow the flow. Well, I'm on that flow and almost done.

Tahun lepas aku di beri peluang untuk memilih. So I had these two options, to choose. Dan ianya melibatkan banyak pihak. Antara a dan b. Well, kalau aku lepaskan peluang bersama a, mungkin hari ini hidup aku masih lagi tersesat arah. Pilihan b nampaknya seperti tidak relevant lagi.
You see, you know you could do better if you had the options.

I wish I could have many options this year like I can choose between benang atau pensil. Butik atau sekolah. Bawal atau shawl. Baik atau jahat. Hidup atau mati.

Because I remember my sister said these...
"Dan akhirnya, hidup ini cuma tentang pilihan" (asa, 2016)

Sabr kata lelakiku

Ada banyak benda yang aku tak boleh nak express walaupun dah berkali-kali aku cuba. Apa aku nampak, rasa di hati dan segala yang aku alami adalah benda-benda ghaib yang sangat tak realistik. Di sebabkan unrealistic matters ni lah anasir jahat untuk aku hilang sabar. Separuh iman aku dah di bawa lari si setan mana mungkin untuk aku kejar dan dapatkannya kembali. Separuh lagi iman dalam diri cuba aku pertahankan. Sukar tapi aku cuba.


Konsep sabar ini sama je macam bertahan. Jadi sabr dan bertahanlah, itu juge pesan Tuhanmu. Unless, kalau kau dah tak hairan dengan pahala.

Alter

I hate changes. Perubahan buat aku nampak total dayus. Sebab bila kau sedaya upaya untuk ke fasa perubahan, kau terpaksa berdepan dengan pelbagai risiko yang kau sendiri rasa tak boleh langsung nak hadap.
But somehow, changes is good though. Maksud aku, bila kau dah terlampau intim di takuk yang sama kau perlukan perubahan. Kalau dulu-dulu kau terpaksa setia dengan teman lelaki kau yang kaki curang tu, mungkin sekarang kau dah boleh perlahan-lahan angkat kaki.
Bagi aku perubahan tu tak salah, tapi kau yang nampak ter-sangatlah pathetic bila takut untuk berdepan dengan perubahan. Kita ada balls, Don't be a coward.
