Is it the explosion of colours
that draw you closer?
Artificial shades of modesty,
drawn on the cheekbone canvas
to compensate for the lost modesty,
or for the lack thereof,
to obliterate harsh judgements,
made by those who sees nothing
but flaws and imperfections stitched together,
failing to see the values that can neither be tarnished nor corroded.

Did I just write that? Yes Nabilah you did. I decided to rant because when you can't sleep at 3.30 am thoughts came overflowing your mind.
      You'll never believe the amount of time we spent wishing to have a flawless skin,cursing and even blaming water,food,and hormones for being the culprit behind breakouts. Why is that so? Because having breakouts on your face is definitely not beautiful, according to the standard of beauty set by majority Earth's population. In fact,I myself is among one of those who spend times standing in front of the mirror scrutinising and wishing I have magic power to remove all blackheads and pimples.
      Beauty lies on the eyes of the beholder is a quote that I and most people know by heart. Some says beauty depends on a person's teeth, some says it depends on how a person smells, countless interpretations of beauty were made. Many says that outer beauty is not as important as inner beauty. Well,I think both are equally important. A lot of people says that they fall for a person's personality instead of the way they look but let's be honest ; if you were given the choice to date a not so handsome guy who's on the chubby side or a guy with David Beckham's athletic figure and charming smile who would you choose to date? The former or the latter?
 "People are like stained-glass windows. They sparkle and shine when the sun is out but when darkness sets in,their true beauty is revealed only if there is a light from within"

        Inner beauty; A K H L A Q, good conduct. Yes,you can't see it straight away for it takes time to really know someone to fall for their inner beauty. Once you recognise how this charm works you will realise how useless is a pretty face without good akhlaq. Beauty is only skin depth, what matters most is the way you use it for it will defiantly be questioned later on in the hereafter.
         Since Allah's creations are beautiful in it's own way I see no rush to be beautiful,beautiful for the wrong reason as in to attract people's attention. We don't need to attract that kind of vibe in our life, we don't need to draw men's attention by wearing excessive make ups and such. We need to focus more on having good akhlaq and building amazing personalities. Beauty is a state of mind rather than a standard that needs to be achieved. If we focus more on our behaviour and improves when necessary it will attract positive kind of people in our life. That, is a bonus point. Don't you know that good things always come to those who waits patiently? :)  
till then, Assalamualaikum.

The art of what matters;

" It's easier to sit in a painful certainty that nobody would find you attractive or that nobody appreciates your talent than to actually test those beliefs and find out for sure".

A few months ago I responded to an advertisement that is looking for medical student who could write. I gave the person a message and we even had a conversation where she explained about how they are going to provide source, give deadline and how they pay for each writing job that I'll agree to. A week after that, she called and I purposely didn't pick up the call. Why? Well in my defense, it was one of the busiest week in our posting. But to be completely honest, I was afraid that I wouldn't be able to do it. So I retreated back to the comfort of my life and just pretend that I could have done it but I choose not to. Did I regret my decision? Back then no, but as I'm writing this I wonder how long is this going to last simply because I refuse to try for fear of not being able …

Skincare routine

Skincare was a very strange concept to me as my mother (who is blessed with good skin genes) always emphasize that putting products on your face would exaggerate unwanted reactions. She was right to a certain extent, if you use unverified products (read; skincare that claims to whiten your complexion in 2 days) then in the long run it would damage your skin. I used to think skincare is such a girly thing to do. Back in high school until my foundation years, I never bothered using toner, moisturizer or even sunscreen! Life was so simple back then, I cleanse my face, let it dry and hope to God that acne would stop invading my face. Who would've thought now I have to wake up early to make sure the sunscreen sit on my face for a solid 20 minutes before going out of the room.

My skin is dry and sensitive. I concluded its sensitive as I can't use products with fragrance without developing rash. Certain products I have tried in the past leaves a tingling sensation especiall…

#PulangMengundi and merepek sikit

As soon as the date for General Election 14 was announced, people started to voice out their concern. For first time voters especially students its not easy to allocate money for transportation. Money is tight for me. Scholarship is not banked in yet and asking for flight ticket money seems so odd in this frugal situation. I saw #PulangMengundi on Twitter which was initiated by a noble and kind-hearted fellow Malaysian made to help each other especially students to go back to their hometown and vote. I am so overwhelmed by this kind gesture because never in a million year would I ever dream of someone sponsoring my ticket back home. Its just too good to be true, and good things doesn't come by that often for me. It is so moving to see people unite, regardless of religion, race, and political view. I hope someday I would be able to be on the giving side. Faith in Malaysian humanity: restored.

What comes next was history, my family and I stayed up late watching AWANI…
