Unconditional

      Truth be told, I almost forgot about the existence of this blog because I am such a lazy writer. As of today, something happened and I think it's quite interesting to write something out of it.
       I called my dad on the afternoon, wanting to chat about random things that happened to me and it was mommy who picked his phone. She said she's waiting in the car while my dad transfers some money for me. I was quite shocked, because my dad has transferred some money on Tuesday ( which is just about three days ago). I asked my dad why do he have to send me more money when he just did it three days ago and his reply makes me tear up a bit.
  " I am insecure whenever the money in your account doesn't reach the amount that I think would be sufficient for you. I know how it feels to be away from home and without money to compensate for the distant love of family. I don't want you to starve yourself just because you don't have enough money to buy foods. I've been there, and it's not a pleasant experience."
     You see, 'I love you' comes in many form. And while it's good to hear the words 'I love you' in a direct and unfiltered way, it's always nice acknowledging that someone loves and care for you, through their actions.
      Reading articles/tweets about how the youth nowadays are drowned in love towards the opposite sex makes me cringe. I am not against all this lovey dovey relationship thingy, I just feel that it is becoming a trend to be more concerned about our future husband/wife rather than concerning about our parents well-being at home.
     We are on cloud nine when our potential boyfriend or boyfriend girlfriend and the like spends money to buy us food, shoes etc but have we not realise that our parents have been spending money eversince we were born in this world? We spend hours trying to write the perfect text for someone we like, yet have no decency to text or call our parents on daily basis. We spend so much money, given by our parents to buy things we don't need just to impress people who probably won't give a damn if our bag is a Louis Vuitton or a pasar malam one. We could spend hours talking with our friends and discussing the latest gadget yet we get mad and speak harsh words whenever our mom asked us to help her to use the computer.
      Life is not all about finding the right spouse or the love of our life ; it's more than that. And don't get me started on the ridiculous amount of relationship goals that is flooding the social media. Instead of focusing on finding Mr Right and Mrs. Perfect, why don't we channel some energy to love, to cherish, and to care more about our parents and family? I may not know anything about dating, but I can assure you that there's less drama and almost no headaches if you start caring for your parents/family. Afterall, our parents worked so hard on providing us a better life the least we could do is placing them on the first place in our priority list. Communication is the golden key to unlock the next stage upon developing a good and close relationship with others.
Parents are also human so they should be treated just like the way we treat our friends, only with a deeper sense of respect (and without 18+ jokes of course)! Till then, Assalamualaikum :D

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 …

#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…

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…
