of gratitude and inspired

Finally, I feel like the world has smiled upon me. So far, 2012 has been the Renaissance for me. I am thankful, grateful and more happier than ever. InsyaAllah, i hope this will not end up in this part of my life.

Alhamdulillah, assimilation has been smooth sailing but i still have long way to go. Sometimes, i feel like i am a shapeshifter. A good one, i have to add. Hehee. Nevertheless, its good to get to know more people from different backgrounds. I just love it when people talk about their hope and aspirations. It is interesting to hear people's insights and their point of views. There are so much stuff to digest and absorb. Am I being too frank here? :P The passion that i felt makes me want to work hard (AND PLAY HARDER during holidays :P) and improve myself. In a way, it is also a gauge on one's future. Pedigree, without any doubt can push you to another level but in the end of the day, its you who are the determining factor. Otherwise, how can those stories from rags to riches came from :) 

People has always been the source of strength and inspiration. So does for style. Look good = feel good. Before this, I don't understand why my sister(s) are vain about their appearance (i just let them be! hahaha) and squinting their eyes at my choice of apparels sometimes (sisters! goshh... i am still young! hahaha) but now I get the whole concept. Dressing well is important because sometimes, you might bump into unexpected people at unexpected place. Plus, it is included in people assessment of your first impression. You definitely don't want to be on wrong foot (like meeting parents of your partner for the first time. hahahaha). I know there is a proverb on don't judge a book by its cover, but in reality people do judge a book by its cover. An ugly truth, yes. It is time to curate my wardrobe and see what I have first before running off shopping aimlessly :P

There is a lot to be thankful for. To be able to breathe, to have a roof over my head, not famished, sempurna  tubuh badan and the list goes on and on. Sometimes, we forget to be grateful over small things in life...

new passport, new adventure

old passport has served me well with full of stamps and every stamp has its own story. one thing that i am certain of, i will hardly see one particular stamp on my new passport :P kalau korang berhasrat nak travel within one day tapi baru sedar passport expired pun boleh because now imigresen siapkan passport within an hour. hehe

Alhamdulillah, God has given me chance to travel to different parts of the world and met new people along the way *background verse - its a small world after all (from disneyland rides)* i am looking forward to travel with my new passport :)

its an open secret that i am still a kid trap in an adult body. people wont take me seriously because i still dress like a kid most of the time. oh well, who wants to be old too fast, right? :P niece says i am her favorite aunt. i gotta tell you, it helps being a big baby. hehehe

niece in lego formula 1 car at legoland windsor
wanna go here because i am a kid by heart :D
takde geng la nak pergi sini. waaaaaa. if anyone plan nak pergi sini, please give me a holler. first legoland to be opened in asia and definitely lagi besar daripada universal studios singapore *kelebihan utama membina theme park di Malaysia disamping kos penyelenggaraan yang murah disebabkan oleh matawang*

another place i dream of going are disney world and universal studios florida. okaylah, disneylands concept are more or less the same with its other branches but you just can't help to visit all of them if possible. the last time i went there is when i was a kid. furthermore, florida is the main one. over betul aku menjustify diri sendiri again and again :P dah alang2 kat florida baik explore semua kan. hahahaha. actually, if i was given a choice between disneyland and universal studios, i will choose disneyland. we even skipped universal studios hollywood back then and no regrets. but i will not give florida a miss because of harry potter park. it gotta be cool seeing how they bring fiction into real life. i googled the harry potter park and it seems like nothing much. nevertheless, the experience seeing it first hand makes me wanna go there badly. i am a big baby through and through :D
