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.

Tasik Biru Ibam daytrip

Today my friends and I went to Bandar Muadzam Shah a town located about 100km from Kuantan. Awa came up with the idea on a mundane Monday morning while we were both beaten up by the freezing lecture hall and the Monday blues. We planned on visiting the so called "New Zealand" which gained its name due to the greenish scenery and the Tasik Biru Ibam. We're not really adventurous so knowing that it doesn't require much effort to reach the blue lake, is a huge relief (well at least for me).

The drive to Bandar Muadzam Shah took us around two and a half hour. Traffic was clear but the road itself is not in the best condition. From Bandar Muadzam Shah I think we drove for another 15 minutes before reaching Bukit Ibam, the exact location of Tasik Biru or the blue lake.The Blue Lake is actually an old mining site. It is said that the aesthetically pleasing blue colour is a result of copper sulphate sedimentation. No one knows the real depth or what makes the lake e…

Two different world ;

"When your parents got married where were you, Nabilah?"
The 4 year old me without hesitation answered
"I was in front of the pelamin, watching. Didn't you notice I was there?".

Of course my answer did not make any sense. The adults love asking me that question over and over again. Younger me noticed that they love my quirky responses so I change the answer every now and then. Sometimes I would say I was handing the bunga telur, on some days I would say I was the flowergirl. The adults (mostly my mom's colleagues) would compliment me saying I'm smart. The younger me basked in compliments and doesn't even try hiding it.
I suck at a lot of things, especially writing intros so I hope that was interesting enough for you to not close this tab 😂.

I recently read Men are from Mars and Women are from Venus. I noticed that a lot of issues discussed in the book rings true in my parents' situation. Women and men are di…

Exponential growth;

Turning 18 and 21 is often used as the marker of adulthood. Having gone through both 18 and 21, I don't feel like I am becoming more of an adult. In fact as each year pass by, I feel like I stopped growing altogether and that each year is passing by without me making any significant changes.

Adulthood is a social construct but transition is expected as we age. With adulthood, the question of maturity comes along. It honestly bothers me so much. Am I mature enough for my age? Does my behaviour reflect my age? Am I choosing the appropriate outfit or does this adds up 10 years to my real age? Mature itself is very subjective as more often than not, we know someone who is younger but very mature in making decision etc. There are no specific measure to determine one's maturity. Writing this made me realize that maybe I am glorifying the idea of adulthood.

Physical development might have stopped for some of us but the psychological and intellectual …
