Personal story time!

     I was taken aback by this one dream I had this morning. I know it's just my brain doing her job by sorting out informations but still, I was shaken to my core. Who would've thought even after all these years it still hurts? (No, this is not a love story or anything cheesy) . Life has it's own way of reminding us about the previous encounters we have had in life. It comes unexpected and as soon as it hits, it reveals back all the pain that you thought you have left behind. You were so confident that it will not haunt you back and you could live a life, free from all the annoyance and all the unpleasant things. Wrong. You should never underestimate the influence of your experiences as it moulds you into the person you are now. Life's greatest experience doesn't necessarily comes with rainbows and unicorn. For all I know, it could be sent down in the form of thunder and bitterness. 
       When I was in highschool, I became a laughing stock for a group of people because of my appearance, because I am fat. To make matters worse, these people were my classmates when I was in Form 5. I wouldn't deny how I wish days to end faster because I am always at the brink of tears. I was not sad because they were making fun of me, I was sad because my friends whom I treat as my bestfriends couldn't even stand for me and that hurts so much back then. It hurts so much until it doesn't, so to speak. I learned to live and cope with it until it really doesn't hurt. How I managed to do so? It's simple. I keep on telling myself that these people are insignificant and that I wouldn't be seeing them again as soon as high school ends. One of my mantra back then was 'what doesn't kill you makes you stronger'. And I believe I did become stronger, at some point of my life I managed to eliminate all those insulting voice and keep it behind me. I often wondered why people enjoy inflicting pain on other people. I guess I have found the answer, maybe that's just a way for them to have fun; by hurting others.
         Back then, I could not see anything positive beneath this but now I do know that the people sent in your life is either a blessing or a lesson. I believe in my case I have earned one of life's greatest lesson which is to ignore what people have to say about you. There will always be someone who dislikes you for your attitude,appearance or sometimes even for no reasons. You have to know that satisfying every single person in this world is impossible. As long as you're pleasing Allah, your parents and your family then you don't owe anything to them. This has also taught me that in life, you will always be alone no matter how supportive you think your friends are. My friends are great, they really are. It's just that in some circumstances, it is better not to get involved especially in petty things such as this matter. So toughen up and treat your own wounds for you yourself is the only person that can help yourself.
         I also learned the value of forgiveness. I learned that it's not easy to forgive someone especially if they have been hurting you intentionally hahaha but nevertheless, I don't hold any grudge against any one of them now. Yes, I still couldn't treat them as a friend and I doubt if I ever will because apparently my doa of 'Ya Allah janganlah Engkau temukan aku dengan orang-orang yang menyakiti hati aku' was granted. I need more time and space to purify my heart so I could easily forgive people. Have I forgiven them? Yes. I don't see any reason not to, plus that was in the past. Since I don't live in the past I chose to let it go, by forgiving people and keep making doa that I will be granted strength to face any upcoming obstacles. Till then, Assalamualaikum (macamla ada reader hahaha)

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 😂.

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…
