  2017 was a bumpy ride. But I can say that it was also a fairly good year. I am going to honour it by celebrating the losses, joys, all ups & downs and smile for all the wonderful things. Yes, we all have drama in our lives but let’s enjoy the positive vibes more in 2018 and not dwell in the negatives of the past year.     Heartbreaks, hectic work life, best family moments, challenging friendships, excitement of trying new things (seriously, craziest shits I never imagined I would do) – they all defined my 2017.   Growing up you will realise that people you started the journey with, some of them might not with you now, walking in their own paths somewhere different than yours. That is life. Loosing a friend or someone you truly love can hurt a lot regardless what the reason is and you…

Give in. Give up.     These two very similar expressions have different meanings and at times they can be quite confusing, I must say.   But I just wonder whether is giving in equal to giving up?       I always believe that we should never give in. Or used to. You should never, never, never – in nothing, even great or small, large or petty – never ever give in, except to convictions of your own honour and good sense.   But remember, there are times when you just need to take a step back and protect yourself from getting hurt too deep. So deep that you can’t even feel the pain and take it by mistake that it is pleasure.   Stop getting yourself involved with friends that only see you when they need you and will be gone off whenever you need them.   Stop…

I used to believe that holding on and the will to hang in there can be viewed as one’s strength. Years passed, and after a few failed relationships (of my own and others’), I got to realise there are times when we need to let loose the rope binding us from being freed, when things have been so rocky you can’t see what lies ahead, when you finally come to your senses that it takes a lot more strength to finally stop, think about yourself and just let go. The hardest part is, to know when you need to do it.     They always bring up the same cliche childish mantra – if it is worth fighting for or if you really love someone, you should stay. But betul ke you guys can truly understand how hard it is to actually stay?   Sebab even if you can get…

I used to think that orang yang nyanyi dekat wedding sendiri somehow kinda tacky. Like really? Well I know it’s your big day and you might want to show off your love to your other half. But come one, duduk dendiam n upah je orang nyanyi. Tapi bila fikir-fikir balik TokTi kesayangan pun nyanyi dekat wedding sendiri. Hewhew Remember majlis perkahwinan Siti Nurhaliza or Siti Nurhaliza wedding yang pernah meletop dikatakan wedding of the century itu sampai kalahkan Putera William and of course rating lebih tinggi daripada kisah ermmm putus cinta or putus tunang Mawi-Ina Naim? Tapi itu dulu. Diulang, dulu. Somehow I find it sweet lah sekarang. Like awwwww so cute the bride pakai baju pengantin pastu nyanyi untuk si husband. Lagu Everytime We Touch ni originally a pop song by Cascada kalau tidak silap. Tapi pengantin ni nyanyi untuk suami dia dekat wedding dalam alunan ballad. Nak ikut…

Ahh danggg! Im so into this song for the past one week. Not really a big fan of Cakra, kot, as I prefer Afgan ;p But hey lagu ni has that kind of lyrics you would want to listen to specially when you need that meroyan time. Lol. Well, I believe some of you can relate this song to your relationship or life or whatever lah Ehermmm You can find the lyrics below, selamat meroyan! Hembusan angin meniup wajah alam Mataku tak berkedip menatap langit Terlalu luas tak bertepi pandang Bisakah aku menyentuh awan Berwaktu-waktu aku mengasuh rasa Mendengarkan jiwaku berkata-kata Tak mungkin aku abaikan kata hati Ku harus jujur pada hatiku Kau dan aku tak bisa bersama Bagai syair lagu tak berirama Selamat tinggal kenangan denganku Senyumku melepaskan kau pergi Engkau bukanlah sebuah kesalahan Tak pernah aku menyesal mengenalmu Tapi biarkanlah aku terbang bebas Mencari cinta sejati

Semua orang ada ego, bezanya tahap mana – cukup rendah boleh dijinak atau tinggi melangit. Sebab ego, tidak kira siapa yang salah, boleh jadi punca bermasam muka walau sedarah. Sebab ego dua sahabat boleh jadi musuh. Sebab ego kita boleh lupakan semua yang manis dan biarkan hubungan retak.     Jangan simpan dendam nanti rosak hati. Nyawa bukan selamanya mendiami badan. Forgive and forget though how hard it will be and surely it takes time. Move on. Lower your ego and be the bigger person. Sounds much better, kan? Ego. Take off the ‘E’ and let it GO!    

God saw you guys were getting tired and a cure was not meant to be. So He put his arms around you and whispered ‘Come with me.’ With tearful eyes we watched you, as we saw you pass away. Although we love you guys deeply, we couldnt make you stay. Your good soul and heart stopped beating. Hardworking hands at rest. Allah broke our hearts to prove to us – He only takes the best. Yang (like how we used to call each other, every single time) u were always be there when I needed u dan untuk semua orang. Minta maaf u were all alone when it happened – something we all regret most. We have known for years JR, back to the time when we both dekat Shah Alam. We got along so well. We laughed so hard over our own silly jokes and we fought a lot…

Come to think of it, a few months back a friend of mine came to me for an honest opinion. Mesti nak cakap pasal relationship. I’m not an expert at all lah, but I always wonder why these people will always come to me for this. Hermmm. Had a thought to write about this because last Monday I myself stumbled on some random posts related to this and diri sendiri sekarang macam kinda trapped with the same thing, kot. Ehhh ngantuk pulekkk. Well to cut it short, he was confused about the relationship he was in (or if jodoh masih panjang till now I dont know, im that type who has no interest at all pasal relationship orang hahaha (T.T) but if they come to me mintak pendapat it is a definitely yes I would always be there pinjamkan telinga mendengar dan bagi pendapat). After almost a year in an…

Personally I like sharing good stuff, well info je lah ;p , sebab ada satu perasaan yang sangat best bila apa yang kita suka tu n orang lain pun try akan rasa yang sama. Contohnya macam cookies ni. Someone gave me a jar of these beauties as biskut raya a day before I went back to JB balik kampung (oiii there, thanks for the cookies!). Tapi tidak bawak balik pun sebab banyak sangat dah kuih raya yang already packed nak bawak naik flight. This year’s biskut raya 2016 semua beli online. Uh-uh the old kuih tunjuk tidak ada sudah for me, beli online sebab cheq malaihh nak keluaq, me being a homie-boy type at best. So awal puasa lagi dah buat list nak beli kuih raya 2016 online dari siapa n all that. Masa dapat ni a night before balik kampung. Mula-mula terdetik juga dalam hati ‘Nak bawak ke tidak?…
