While arranging my clothes in the closet, I realised that almost all of my clothes are from thrift shops or we call it Ukay-ukay. I don’t know, but my love for thrift shopping became huge, not just because it’s cheap but also I can find a lot of modest clothes there, believe me finding modest clothes in the mall are pain in the ass. Living in a catholic or liberated country, I have to deal with that. The cardigan and sleeveless that i’m wearing are from - guess where - Ukay-ukay! And scarf which a bought from Malaysia last summer only costs 5 RM or Php 70.

While I was cleaning my room, I came across a box that contains my journals way back high school. I buried this from the back of the closet as I buried those memories with it. 

I went down the memory lane, and there was this little pain striking me while flipping the pages. Maybe because I wasn’t a typical teen; I was bullied, I was a fool for love, was depressed, I was hurt. A friend (myrilmae007) told me, remembering the past has two sides. Which is true! You can either be happy or sad/hurt about it. And so after a few flips, I decided to burn them all. It was relieving actually, I felt happy leaving all those painful memories behind. And I said to myself i’m gonna start a new, a happy one. I realised albeit there were days that I felt weak, but actually I’m strong. Well, I’m still writing this and i’m still able to get up from bed every day. And I guess that’s just what life is, it gets shitty, it’s just seeing things in the brighter side of life and how to handle those shittyness with maturity and grace. I’m still far from what I aspire to be, but at least I’m seeing hope and happiness in little things. 

"But I believe good things happen everyday. I believe good things happen even when bad things happen. And I believe on a happy day like today, we can still feel a little sad. And that’s life, isn’t it?"

SURPRISES SURPRISES

It’s been 10 days since I celebrated my birthday, nothing fancy but I spent my day with lovely people. I woke up with my moms kiss and greetings, but I fell asleep right away cos I stayed up too late the night before. It was the most lovely thing to start a day! I owe it all to my mom, tbh it was her day and not mine. For she was the one who had labor years ago, felt pain, and who gave birth to a lovely awesome beautiful baby girl, moi. So Happy Giving Birth, mom! I love you!

Anyway, the day after my birthday, my love with the help of my 2 best friends surprised me! He even made a video for me, and I was crying while watching it. I really didn’t see it coming nor I had an idea. I can’t explain how happy I am that day. Though he’s miles away, he made to make me feel special and loved!

TGIF (Part Un)

Friday means my free day, hell yeah TGIF! I don’t have class and I usually don’t have any important things to do during this day. So earlier, I thought why not share what I do during Fridays! It’s also one way for me to do my best to be productive in some little ways. :D

July 18, 2014 

My Friday in bullets:

  • Lately, the weather in GenSan are so bipolar. This afternoon the rain suddenly poured down. So I decided to stay in our front porch and watch the rain. I love rain!
  • I made myself coffee and some pancakes. The pancakes are not that appealing to look at, but trust me it’s delish! :) What made it delish?  Eggs and milk! I ate while admiring the rain and while visiting some of my favorite blogs.
  • I am currently reading: The Abundance of Katherines by John Green. So far i’m lovin it!
  • Spent my afternoon with these two monsters. As usual they keep on fighting. I don’t know what to do with them anymore, Paris is such a b! I badly want them to be bff’s! 
  • When the rain stopped, I went to the mall to meet my best friend. Cos we just have to try this newly opened Jelly CiTea, it was their last day for free upsize! It was a bit too sweet for my taste, but it’s really yummy! :) And lastly, I ended up buying If I stay by Gale Forman so now i’m totally broke and i’m on book ban! :(

So how’s you’re Friday? Have a great weekend ahead! :) xo.

5 RANDOM THINGS ABOUT ME!

Shukran (Thank you) to my dearest thewallflowersecrets and deebipolar for the tag! :)

  • I’m a great procrastinator! I’m guilty to that, I’ve been telling myself for the past years to move my butt out and be productive, but I still fail. I end up doing things the night before the deadline or cramming for it, I hate it. But recently, I see to it that I accomplish something every day, I may not done all of what I’ve written in my “to do list” but at least I’ve done something, and I wouldn’t put my day to waste.
  • I have this “5 Year Plan” that I recently came up to. 1)Find a job. 2)Take photography or journalism course while working. 3)Apply a grant in Nat Geo (which is my dream job btw) or work for an org that help save animals and the unfortunate ones. 4)Travel and seek for adventure. 5)Pursue teaching career. 6)Settle down and be a mommy. I’ve realised that I’m too young and I have to enjoy my life cos life is f short,
  • I’m starting to collect books and eventually build my very own mini library! Not just for my own pleasure but also for my future kids to enjoy the awesomeness that is books.
  • I have this love-hate feeling whenever I see a movie or read stories about dogs/cats. I love dogs and I have two, Paris and Dashy, I treat them like my very own babies. I hate reading or seeing stories of dogs/cats cos it’ll make me cry hard and I can’t bare to imagine how am I going to say goodbye to them (my babies) someday…
  • The only things I wanna do in life are: READ, TRAVEL, SAVE ANIMALS.

I’m at the point in my life where things are neither good or bad. They could be better, but they could be worse & I can’t look at anything with a purely pessimistic or optimistic point of view. It’s that point in life where you just have to forge forward & hope for the best. You keep your fingers crossed in hopes that someday catching that happiness you tried so hard to hold in your grasp. That’s the thing about happiness, it is fleeting. Like that firefly you try to capture & no matter how many times you waver, try to clasp it in your hands, but it never wants to be kept. Keep one foot in front of the other & move along, because someday, that firefly will find it’s way back to you.

My muslimah readers are growing, I don’t know when that happen but I am truly greatful! Mashallah. So I’ve decided (from now on) to feature some modest fashion, muslimah clothing reviews, and OOTD’s of course. Yay or nay? 

Anyway, tbh, I’m not fond of buying things online except well for books. And seeing a lot of hijabi going cray about what Classic Crown Hijab Store are selling, why not give it a try! And I’ve been eyeing for their scarves for a while now since I really love pastel colors.

Classic Crown Hijab Store is ran by 2 muslimah reverts, Jamila and Marjan. They are the official Kaffah re-seller which is owned by the fashion blogger, Siti Juwariyah. As they say, it’s not just a store but a community. True that! Not only for the reason they donate a portion of their income to Muslim charities, but also they unite the muslimahs and they share knowledge especially to reverts.
