Tough love; 2k15

       2015 has been one of those years that shifted very fast for me. Ending the particularly long period of foundation in CFS, starting life as a degree student with the UNGS phase, finally enrolling into medical school and keeping up with the motivations that often takes a wrong turn. Oh well, let's not go there.          Throughout this year I have learnt that when you're at the lowest point of your life, NOTHING will ever bring you out of it but God and should you ever turn your back to Him, there is no hope. So long as you rely on Him, there is hope and in the end it is hope that helps you to persevere. 
       I learnt that family is the most important institution in this world; that distance may separates physical but can't separate hearts. I am so thankful for being born in this family and I pray that our hearts will still be united even in Hereafter. 
       I learnt that friends are best kept when they are able to tolerate as much as you do to them. Friendship is a two way communication, it needs effort from two or more people. Remember to always reflect on the many good things they have done for you instead of rooting for that one mistake. Afterall, no humans are capable of being perfect. We will always err.
      I learnt that passion can go a long way even when your mind and body is exhausted. It reminds you why you're here in the first place, why you have to try your best and why matte lipstick makes your lips dry like Sahara desert (lol why am I writing that). 
       Whatever happens in 2015 stay there, we can only take lessons and hope that we become wiser with each year. Here's to taking more chances, making more decisions, buying more matte lipstick and passing exams and minitests ! Toodles ♥

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…
