Dear Malaysia

Bless to all Malaysian, I'm greeting from London. 

If you often travel with Malaysia Airlines boeing 747, this video will play on your screen before touched down. I feel proud watching this video among all the mat salleh in my flight from London to KL. It get my nerves when I heard the Londoners ordering nasi lemak instead of steak to the stewardess. 

So here is my greeting for you, MY Malaysia. 

Dear Malaysia,
Today is your 54th birthday. I'm so proud to be Malaysian and I'm sure all Malaysian feel the same way too. Everywhere I go the world recognized you. You're so famous to the world. I still remember when I'm in Paris buying souvenirs, the souvenirs guy approach me and asked me if I am a Malay. I say yes and he says "Singapore,Malaysia, or Indonesia?" Proudly I say "Malaysia". As if your name is a mantra or something, this guy is magically give me discount. Maybe it is just the marketing strategy, but I know that I'm more than proud to carry your name with me. I never try to used your name to get any discount. I swear!

Dear Malaysia,
Do you know a lot of foreigners do speak in Malay? The word "Terima kasih" is famous as "Bonjour" in Paris. To be honest with you, I'll be more patriotic while I'm abroad compared when I was home. Don't get me wronged, I will always be patriotic everywhere I go even though I sometimes reply the "Terima Kasih" with "Welcome". Well, its supposed to be "Sama-sama"

Dear Malaysia,
After all these years, I realize many Malaysian had take you for granted sometimes (including me). Many young generation didn't know how to appreciate you. We didn't know how they struggle to get the independence. But one thing for sure, we will never let go of this independence we have, as much as we can't let go the 3-in-the morning-Roti-Canai at mamak stall. We will never give up. Don't worry.  

Dear Malaysia,
I just want you to know we, Malaysian are very friendly. Not only among us, but among others as well.  Everywhere I go, every time I encounter with other Malaysian they never failed to greet me. I know they  always make their way to the Malaysian Hall whenever they miss YOU. Many malaysian despite of races gather here just to eat our homemade dishes. Chinese, Indian and Malay are very well unite. We always wear a smile on our face. We even smile when we get to the court for divorce cases. 

Dear Malaysia,
The most proudest thing that really get into my nerves is to see our very own Jalur Gemilang flying high at Trafalgar Square. As I stare, I get this an overwhelming feeling inside me. Something that can make my eyes teary. Then I know and I realized just how much I love you. We wouldn't want to have so many obese people like in western countries. Full of alcohol, partying, and fast food. Because we are proud to ourselves. Wa are unique in our own way. 

Wish you a very Happy 54th of Independence. 
*hugs and kisses*

Yours Truly,

Hail A Cab

Back in London days, hailing a taxi won't give you such a heart attack. Just hold out your hand when you see the black cab is coming, get in, and the driver will drive you wherever you to the place. Professional? Yes. Challenging? No

Things are slightly different here in Malaysia. Held a taxi but you cant be sure they will stop. If they do, they will ask your location. If they like, they will drive you. If they don't, wait for another half an hour to get another taxi. They will be more demanding on price when you sounds desperate. 

Ordering a taxi by phone call will be more challenging. I once ordering a taxi from my place to KL Sentral. After all the "" musical sound over the line for quite a moment, the operator ask me "How may I help you" after I said my location and she ask me to hold on, the "" music when through my ear again. 

Another ten minutes gone by, the operator ask me the same question over again. I answered her the same answer. Ask me to hold on and the "ne.." music when through my ear. This process going on for another 20 minutes. After 20 minutes of waiting, she gets me to the line only to tell me there's no cab available at the moment.
Challenging? Yes. Will it ever get me bored? NO.

My Packing Tale

Packing is simply being organize and staying calm and deciding what exactly I need to take. And then fitting it all neatly into my suitcase. Just how hard can that be? 

I found an article about a woman who bring only one pair of jeans for her ten days vacation to Europe. 
Simple. Just mixed and match your tops. Work on one outfit and stick to that.

So there goes my list of things to bring: 
 One pair of jeans is enough but what if someone pour a coffee over my only-one-pair-of-jeans? 
So No! I have to bring two pair. Anyway jeans hardly take off any space of my luggage. Do they?


So let's see. Plain white is a 'must' obviously. Grey, ditto! Pink sleeveless, black cropped. But, how am I going to predict which T-shirt I'm going to wear?  It depends on my mood. So I decide to bring all my T-shirts. 

Ok, what's next? 

I've already pack up my leggings and my denim jacket. I can't count on August weather. At the moment its hot and sunny but who knows if it's going to be snow? So I bring my knee high boots. 

This is remind me on my camping trip back in high school.

Sometimes I hope my clothes can organized  themselves. Easy to say Aisha. The truth is, I can't do it. I just can't pack my suitcase like a pro!

What I don't understand is how other people manage to pack so lightly.

I Get Triple

One of the best thing about KL is you get really close to the shopping mall. In fact, sone of the sales girl being like friends. I'm not trying to boast, but I know I make them happy when I buy something. I honestly make them feel different to their life.

So I went to MAC booth the other day to get myself a new eyeliner. They are too blinking nice and made me even wanna buy the whole store but I didn't. I feel bad so I decide to buy three eyeliner on the dot. 

One is MAC Gel Eyeliner,
Second, MAC liquid eyeliner
Third, MAC Shimmery Eyeliner. (My favourite)

I swear to you, MAC had invention the best eyeliner ever. It never smudges even when you're sweating. It is so easy to apply and lasts me until I take it off with make up remover. I have tried other liquid eyeliner but I must stick to this one. This stuff is amazing. It's fabbo. No kidding.

It's just that I gone broke for the whole month again. My advice is, you don't have to buy three eyeliners at one dot. One tube will lasts forever.  I probably read Control Your Cash by David E. Barton from now on. I wait for you to laugh or at least you can give me a sympathetic smile.

Bad Karma

Do you know when they say a bad karma will hit your face if you done something bad? Well, it happen to me today. I spent all of the time in front of my laptop. I didn't cook, I didn't watch tv, I didn't go out. Who need to go out if you can see the entire world with your tiny screen?? 

So, this morning I went to the back yard of my house and found ulat (worm) inside and outside the dustbin.
Yes. I had worm inside my dustbin.







I didn't take the picture because you don't dare to look. It's gross. So time for revenge!!!
I took the mosquitoes spray and spray to them. No avail. I think they even say "look at this fool, a mosquitoes spray?? We are immune to that" *sing happily*

Next,  I pour the hot water to them and I can tell their body were shrinking become fat but still, that aren't the best revenge after all. By this time they probably say " Wohooooo.... how does she thinks she can kill us by pouring the hot water? We rocking it out beybeh!!" 

Feel disappointed, I finally give up. Pull over the dustbin and throw it out at the garbage outside my house. End of story. But not after I can't remove the stain and the smell that left on my dustbin. Another story begins. I wash it out with soap but the smell is still there so I decides to use my Calvin Klein Perfume  and spray it on my dustbin. Genius! Thank God for whoever invent on perfume. Mr Calvin Klein should be proud. ^___^

Ok. Time for wash my hands. I'm a dirty girl. But don't judge me wrong. I have this super cool Hands Scrub from Crabtree & Evelyn. It scrub away all dirties and make me clean once again. After all the dirty job I did, I deserved a hand therapy.  It keeps your hand smooth and moist. 

With affordable price, I think you would in love with this product. Happy Hands, Happy Life.

Jet Lag

Do you know I'm in the UK and try to keeping up as late as I can?

Do you know when you travel a long distance, you'll be powerless by this phenomenon?

Do you know you'll get fuzzy, tired and fatigued due to a time zone change?

Do you  will wake up at 2 a.m, and wasn't ready to wake up  but knew you couldn't fall asleep?

Do you know you will rolled over and ask "Is it morning?" to your family members?

Do you know there's no interesting program air on the TV at 5a.m in the morning and you'll feel like a zombie started typing a few thoughts about jet lag on your computer?

Left Out

Sis went away again, this time for longer, and of course I miss her.  Hooray!! No one can disturb me. 
I get excited. I gave up all my disciplinary and turn my day unproductively. I do need a break. Eat.Sleep. Eat. Sleep. 
Day and night and again day and night until there's nothing left in my life. 

On the second day, I try the other way around. TV.Sleep.TV. Sleep. I watched Keeping Up with Kardashian for countless time. So aside of asking God why he doing this to me, I finally try to catch with my life. Living alone for the rest of the week isn't fun at all. Trust me. 

Third day, comforting myself with books and scribble some words on my note pad. 

Try to BBM Yasmin.

No reply. Thanks.

Finally, I sent this a text to my dad in Malaysia. 

Me: London is so gloomy

Dad: It's all bright and sunny over here.

Cocktails For Three

I just finish the last word from Sophie Kinsella book, Cocktail For Three. This book is a lot of different from any other Sophie Kinsella books as she writes as Madeleine Wickham (her true name).  She's very intelligent author with so many ideas running out of her brain. So when I spotted this book while browsing and noticed the note of who she was, I snapped it up. 

Basically, it's about three smart, and successful great friends meet for cocktail and gossip once a month. The theme of the book is secrets and how we hide it them from our closest friend. I like the message she gives on how to avoid crises before it bottled up. 

Overall, I rate it 8 out 10. So enough of review. 

Stay Well

Sick Leave

I've been in bed, booo hoooo! I have this really bad cold (due to unpredictable London's weather) and couldn't go out which is quite fun, not having to do anything and just lying on my bed. It's just that I feel too woozy. Like my head was full of fog and my hand all sh-sh-shivery and it gets sh-sh-shaky, like a g-g-ghost. 

So here's the book I get to finish up during my sick days at home. I'm going to blog you this series of book reviews.. Be warned!!!!

I will write a proper entry soon. 

Love and Kisses

Ziarah Raya Blog

Wish a Selamat Hari Raya to all bloggers in Ziarah Raya Blog.  Maaf Zahir & Batin.

I'll be celebrating Raya in London with unfriendly London mood. *___*
So no ketupat, no rendang, and no cholesterol heaven food. 

Have a blast with family and good food while I'm cuddling  and crying in my duvet here in gloomy rainy London Day. But really, do enjoy your day and don't worry with this depressed girl. 
No, really. Have a blast Raya.

My Phuket Trip-Part 2

Before I blab on, just one advice for those who planning to go.
Always wearing a flat and long sleeves shirt because the sun here will angrily burn your skin. Unless if you wanna get tan. But I doubt many asians do.

I love being in Phuket but man.... the pollution. Aside from that, I really love this place. The city is quite exotic. 

I didn't come back from Phuket with loads of luggage.  I also bring extra fat I consumed in Phuket. I can't handle it. I just love eating in Phuket. The food is awesome and it is cholesterol heaven!! 


I went to Sherphaluck Orchid. The place where they produce and selling Cashew. I can't be bother to enter because the line was too long. So I settled for picture outside. 

There are many shops in this area which mostly sales beach wear. 

Halal food is easy to find. There's a lot of Lebanese restaurant floating everywhere. Some Tom Yam restaurant has Halal signage. 

I'm almost drool by their Tom Yam. You had to taste the Tom yam before you leave. If you have been there, you'd agree with me. If you don't you have to go one day.

I'm leaving for London in a few days. So it will be more post to come. Be warned! 
Just for now, I need to get back to sleep baybeh!

The Godfather-"I'll make him an offer He can not refuse"

Hey, guess what? I got a chance to watch The Godfather one more time. It was airing on TV. Don't go thinking I'm a loser watching an old movies. No way! Watching an old movies doesn't sound dumb, its sounds fabbo. 

Mainly is about Al-Pacino *drooling* as the college-educated son who take over his mafia family business.   Yet The Godfather is not that simple. There's a "Point" which has been made somehow more ambitious and interesting in the film. After all the terrifying, within their isolation there's such a sense of love and honor, no matter how bizarre. It plays havoc of emotions as the sweet things of life as marriage, baptism, family feast become an extricable part of the background. 

Bottom Line: It's nothing personal about this Mafias, just their way of doing business is what made their life "interesting".

What's yours

I just feeling so unmotivated and I could never bring myself to write for something great. So I decide to snap a picture of what I have in my handbag. *Boring*

A woman is judge by what she carries IN her handbag. Excuse for the lipsticks lah ok? I really have no idea why I carry a bundle of lipstick everywhere. I feel bad not bring them with me as if a bad karma will happen to me if I didn't. Like if someone wants to harass me on the road I can throw them with these bunch of lipstick I had. Ok. Moving on..  

So what do you have inside your handbag?

Hair Extension

To some extent we will do anything just to make ourselves beautiful and never care about the long term side effect.

Recently, I intend to make hair extension because it looks beautiful, thicker, wavy, and elegant. As curious as I am, I make a research about hair extension. What the Don’ts are.

So here it is…


Finding out about all the methods of hair extensions is probably the MOST important step.  You should allow extra time to understand the methods and also the next step to select the best method for your hair situation. 

And just like the drug commercials we see on television, the side-effects of hair extensions are very real and you need to know what they are

 Important notice for all hair extension methods
Hair extensions can cause permanent damage to your natural hair.  Every hair extension company out there today claims that their method does not cause damage and even more companies claim that the condition of your natural hair will be improved after wearing hair extensions. 

First, the hair that is used for hair extensions comes in wefts (hair that is attached together with a tiny little curtain at top, or in individual strands of hair.  A strand of hair is considered 30 or more individual strands of hair.   Hair can be human hair or synthetic hair.

Each strand of hair on our head has a cuticle, or layer if you will, that is going in a certain direction.  All of the cuticles of the hair on your head are going in the same direction.  So, when you talk about adding hair to your head, it is important to understand the cuticle and how it is important to the look and feel of your hair.

So I called my sis’s hair consultant, Christy. Roughly, she gave the same feedback.

Moral of the story, don’t depend on something to make u feel good bout yourself or let your confident boost by wearing something fake. Just let your natural beauty speaks to itself. Buat apa nak depend on something untuk nampak cantik kan? jangan rosakkan your natural beauty. 

Confidence is sexy especially  when u are comfortable with your own skin. Feel good about yourself. Love your skin, love your hair, love everything in you! Never leave home without it!

Take supplementary such as Vitamin E. It produce oil to make your hair  and skin grow healthier.

Excuse for make ups la. It is beauty enhancement. Anyway, there's no serious effect wearing make up. We need make up to look natural.

Back to Christy:
You wash your hair everyday la. It will grow in a month! No need hair extension one!

A Tale Of Sanitary Pad

As a still menstruating women, personally I'm not fond of having pools of blood left behind on the chair. I reached puberty at age 12 and since then I have love-hate relationship with sanitary pad. My friend on secondary school once advised me to wash it clean. If I didn't, the hantu (ghost) will come and suck the blood and I would die. 

Nowadays, when I look at the sanitary packet in Guardians, I will always think of the following: 

1) The sanitary pad must be long enough to keep me from leave any stain on my chair.
2) Non-scratchy pad to keep me  away from diaper rash. 

Men don't have a clue about what menstruation really is and have never experience it every month. I once make a boyfriend of mine buy me sanitary pad and he totally get freak. Wing-pads and non wing-pads? Light-days, heavy-days, night flow? What the heck?? It's really frighten him out of hell. He says he looks gay buying it. Will he later relate ipad to sanitary pad??  I'd give up after that  ^__ ^

Sometimes I wonder how men react when see sanitary pad's commercial on TV. Do they imagining what is behind the pad? The shape of the pad? The things under the pad?? Will the pad stuck on their brain all the time?? Aiyaa...... want to pray also cannot!

The Gift

Currently Reading: The Gift by Cecelia Ahern.

Cecelia Ahern is a creative writer. I really admire her work. When I look at the cover, I actually don't expect much. This is the third novel from Cecelia Ahern I have read and will never able to put it down so far.  Do not spoil it for me if you've read it.

Till then

Something To Perk My Skin UP

Ok, time for product review..


This is Dior Capture Total One Essential Serum. I'm not buying this myself but I got it from my sister. She claimed it was a great serum that I would notice results within a week. I was skeptical to believe her because I have never found a product that would work so fast. She changed to SKII somehow. (LMAO). 

This is the best serum I had ever used and the most expensive. *cries*
Yeah right, it would have to give me a perfect skin to be worth that.


Before this I'm using unbranded product and all I can say is it's like going from Nissan to Mercedes!  You can tell by how awful I look before this. Well, with dark circle under my eyes, oily skin and my hair all over the place. 

This product is like a bless from above as it made my pores almost visible and evened out my skin tone just after three days. I only applied it once a day in the morning. 

Base on others reviews about this product, I can tell that:

  • It helps eliminate surface toxins on the skin 
  • Help reveal clearer, brighter skin that is more line free.
  • Two drop will suffix the entire face, it soak in instantly.
  • This serum help exfoliating your skin and is supposed to help absorb the active ingredients from other cream better.
That seems to be true because my skin is plumpier and softer in the morning. 
 I took this picture right after I woke up this morning after I brush my teeth of course. 


Don't ask me if I already take my bath prior taking this picture because as honest as I can be, I hadn't yet.   

 Smelly??? That's my sacrifice effort for you, so you're most welcome. 




One thing I don't like about this product is that you can't see how much you have left in the container, So I never know if I'm about to run out.

Above else, I really love this product but the price tag is nasty. A good birthday present for me because I can't afford to buy myself. :)

So I hope you guys happy reading this while I'm taking my bath and apply this serum.

Stay Well

Oh My Choco-Date

In case you didn't know, this dates are the most delicious dates that I ever taste!! It produce in Dubai and the only way I can get this date when I fly with Malaysia Airlines. During fasting month, MAS will distribute this freebies to all passenger while boarding. 

I'm not really into dates but I just can't say NO to this one. I am really, really into this dates. If you travel in business class you can get TWO pieces but for economy class they give ONLY one. 

Unfortunately, I have to travel in economy class for this trip. As I boarding, I saw the stewardess standing there and give away this date to every passenger. So I was so excited and thought maybe I can negotiate with the stewardess to get me at least two chocodates.

Well, customer always RIGHT, aren't we? This stewardess won't lose anything if she gives me more. We should be more generous in fasting month and so does this stewardess. In fact, I pay hundreds of ringgit to fly with MAS just to get one Chocodate.

Consider it as sedekah to me, so I asked her "Can I have two?" as she handed the dates to me. With every smile on her face she says "Only One, Miss". Damn! She won't get fired just because she gave me extra dates for God sake!!! 

I can't believe I say this but I turned to her and say "Kedekut! (You stingy!)" She just smiles at me politely . Now you can call me  rude but before you judge me, have a taste of this date first. You'll know how it feels like to be in my shoes then. *hides in shame* 
ONE Chocodates will never be enough. 

Missed Home...

What it feels like to be missed?

I hate the fact that I missed home while I'm abroad. 

I missed my bed

My pillow and the smell I left on it. :)

I hate the fact that no matter how comfortable the bed is provided by the hotel, I still miss my OWN bed.

Do you missed me, Bed? 

18 Hours Shoot!!

I have a story for you... About Him.. 

He loves me, does He? Or maybe He forgotten me. 

I turn to my sis and say "He has forgotten me"
Sis:  Don't say that. He loves you that's why He test you 
*rolling her eyes*
Me: Do I need to be tested before I get what I desire?
Sis: Yess, off course!

I keep my eye on my watch. The last time I ate was 12 hours before. The clock is ticking but time has seem not moving at all. I try to focus on other thing. Watching TV, shopping, playing games, just name it. I did everything to keep me going but I feel weak. I feel like a zombie. Half dead, half alive. I can't move on. I try to get in touch with Him but to no avail. It gets disconnected. I never feel this way before. I keep on praying and keep on crying. 

Sunset makes me giddy, like there's a butterflies on my stomach. I feel alive for a second time. I feel stronger than ever. I heard the most beautiful Azan ever as the Imam from the Central Mosque of London call to pray. Yess!! That's it! I long waited for this Azan and long waited to break my fasting. 

Goshhhhhhh!!!I have prayed, begged and asked from God to give me strength. A happier life with loads of food. Is it too much to ask for?  By the end of the day, with every patience I take, He grant me with what I desired. I'm longing for foooooddddd... 18 hours of fasting is really crazy challenging. 

Anyhow to lose hope is to lose faith in God. Have patience for God will grant you with what you want. What you desire. Even you're desiring for foods... I survived! *chin up* 

This is the whole new experience for me. Fasting for 18 hours a day in London.  Two more weeks to go. Wish me luck.

 * All muslims around the world are fasting during this holy Ramadhan month during the daylight hours from dawn to sunset. When Ramadhan fell in the summer, fasting often tough.
