Tasik Biru Ibam daytrip

Today my friends and I went to Bandar Muadzam Shah a town located about 100km from Kuantan. Awa came up with the idea on a mundane Monday morning while we were both beaten up by the freezing lecture hall and the Monday blues. We planned on visiting the so called "New Zealand" which gained its name due to the greenish scenery and the Tasik Biru Ibam. We're not really adventurous so knowing that it doesn't require much effort to reach the blue lake, is a huge relief (well at least for me).


The drive to Bandar Muadzam Shah took us around two and a half hour. Traffic was clear but the road itself is not in the best condition. From Bandar Muadzam Shah I think we drove for another 15 minutes before reaching Bukit Ibam, the exact location of Tasik Biru or the blue lake.The Blue Lake is actually an old mining site. It is said that the aesthetically pleasing blue colour is a result of copper sulphate sedimentation. No one knows the real depth or what makes the lake extremely blue.

When we arrived, we had to park our car on the road side. The place itself is very quiet with no nearby home on sight. We were wary of the surrounding at first but seeing the copper sulphate blue colour melts our worries away.
The lake is surrounded by grey mines deposits quarry walls and green trees. Along the lake, theres a medium sized walkway with a few good spot for pictures.


Though the view is very mesmerizing, nothing much can be done here (except taking pictures obviously!).The view is just so amazing and breathtakingly beautiful. Glad we went here for the super short getaway from the hectic life in Kuantan :)

These are some pictures taken by my friend Awa. Enjoy!

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 …

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…

#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…
