Perspective



Perspective/pərˈspektiv ; noun
defined as:
a particular attitude toward or way of regarding something; a point of view.


At this age, I have encountered a few people who only see things from their point of view. They are strongly opiniated and always think that they are right. Some turns life into a competition, always wanting to emphasize that they had it worst than you.
When it comes to opinion,of course each individual would be inclined to believe that their own opinion is the truest of em all. I think its very crucial that one have the decency to consider things from another perspective.

As a social media addict(self-proclaimed) I have seen many status on Facebook and tweets that sounds condemning instead of educating. I admit I might be guilty of this too... I have to be honest, there are times when I wanted so badly to comment on certain issues but I stopped myself because I sound arrogant and condemning others for not knowing.
The doctors,medical students,pharmacists,and other professionals' effort in wiping off myths revolving in the society should be applauded. But in doing so, I think we need to articulate our thoughts and express it wisely. If our intention is to educate the society on why vaccination is important then explain how vaccine works instead of just telling that its important (thats me btw guilty of tweeting sarcastic remarks on vaccine). Looking back at it makes me question myself did I feel superior when I tweeted this? What was going in my head? Coz I definitely sounded arrogant.

Abdullah ibn Mas’ud reported: The Prophet, peace and blessings be upon him, said, “No one who has the weight of a seed of arrogance in his heart will enter Paradise.” Someone said, “But a man loves to have beautiful clothes and shoes.” The Prophet said, “Verily, Allah is beautiful and He loves beauty. Arrogance means rejecting the truth and looking down on people.”

May we all be protected against the tiniest bit of arrogance in our heart and become better at what we're doing now. 💞

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…
