Money talk and how I started saving

Hey everyone (perasan ada reader ),
 Since I am under caffeine, I've figured that I might not sleep the whole night so I decided to write something. Caffeine has a strong effect on me. My preference of coffee is either Nescafe or Starbucks. I tried coffee from The Coffee Bean once,it was a horrendous experience for me. My head felt like it would explode from the dizziness right after drinking a few sips. Any caffeinated drinks even tea could keep me awake at night. Low-caffeine-tolerance 

                                                              My savings so far for 2015

 One of my new year resolution is to save up money. I am a highly-ambitious person unfortunately everything I planned rarely gets executed. Somehow, I always found a reason to dismiss the "ambitious" thought. But 2015 is different, I promised myself this would be my year, Insha Allah.

Responsibility is a huge word and hold and even bigger meaning to me. As much as I would love to spend money on things that I barely need, a deeper part in myself despise this bad habit. I have to be responsible over my finance. Someone dear to me once said that youth should not be wasted doing silly things. Yes, you would have something great to tell your grandchildren for being "cool" but do you actually want them to repeat all the ridiculous  things you've done? Of course,the answer is no. Youth should be spent wisely by doing things that you will not regret once you get older. I am teaching myself to be responsible by saving money in hope that by nurturing this good habit it would grow into something beneficial.
        I was on Google to find out a few Biology terms that I don't understand when I came across an article about how to save money for dummies. The article piqued my interest so I clicked the link and read the whole article. The article literally is a lifesaver as I was trying to figure out ways so I could start my holy intention lol. It gave me the idea to save RM5 notes. I didn't do it willingly at first, but it eventually became a habit. Fake it until you make it, there's some truth in that. It feels weird when I first started keeping all the RM5 notes but as time goes by now it feels weird if I'm on my cheat day and use the RM5 notes. Yes, I have this cheat day thingy because sometimes , the kiosk do not have enough change so I have to use the RM5 notes to pay for something. That is one of the most annoying moments because in my opinion, when you're doing business you should prepare enough change. Surely you don't expect customers to run around places to get the change ready for you,right?
       Anyway, I hope you guys (if there's any human being reading this) try to save some money. We live in an era where RM50 wouldn't last for long. RM50 only lasts for 4 days or 5 if I am being strict on spending approximately RM10 per day for foods and drinks. Times like this makes me feel like being a high school kid again, just so I could eat free foods 5 times per day for free eventhough the amount of oil and salt is quite generous. I still need to study informations for tomorrow's discussion of Log B and fold my laundry ugh, till then goodnight and Assalamualaikum.

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…

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 ­čśé.

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…

Recap and resolutions

2017 recap!
• completed the remaining 3 blocks of pre-clinical phase which was stressful. My daily routine involves reading notes and asking what the hell am I doing with my life (I still do that).

• In July, I took my first professional exam and what made it memorable was the fact that the whole batch passed and no one is left behind in pre-clinical phase for yet another year. I cried a lot during this period because I was too scared of failing the exam, I was afraid of disappointing my parents, I was just a mess. Mind you, it was not the kind of cry where tears rolled down my cheek, it was the ugly sobbing kind till I found it hard to breathe.

• This was the first raya without my Inak (grandma). It felt so different, I ugly sobbed while reading Yassin after the Eid prayers.(yes I was such a huge emotional ball just waiting to erupt anywhere anytime lol).

• Started clinical year on August. Those were life-changing moment because it was something that I look forward to. Turns out, i…
