To KB..

I’m writing this from a flying aeroplane, but probably posted this from my hotel room later. I’m currently flying to Kota Bharu for my exam. This year, USM is the host for our exam so all candidates from other universities will be in Kota Bharu USM campus.

I’m flying with Firefly now. Travelling alone… Haven’t done this is a long time!!! After I bought my tickets, Firefly offered me to buy the seat next to me for RM15 for extra space! Owh yay!! I don’t mind extra space. My bag needs a seat too😉


Managed to flatlay my seats. Hehe..One for me, one for my bag.. and that pink file is my notes. Didn’t check in, just in case I lose my luggage along my journey. Haha.. Paranoid.

Back to my extra seat story… So, I agreed but Firefly can only confirm the it only about 3 hours before my flight. I received an email earlier today saying that I got the extra seat (Yay!) and I hope I will get another extra seat when coming back to KL on Monday. Any Firefly people here, please gimme the extra seat that I booked, please pretty please😉

Exam is really around the corner.. this coming Sunday and Monday to be exact. Last few weeks have been crazy for me. Sitting for major exam when you have family and working at the same time is not easy. I could have taken this exam long time ago but I got too distracted enjoying my life in my twenties. Really living life to the fullest. Hahahah…

Again, there’s no right or wrong about deciding when do you want to further you study… and there’s nothing wrong about not continuing to study at all. It’s really up to your choice. I have friends who got married and plan for their family later after exam. In my case, the initial plan was to have a baby and then continue study after that… but I loved being a mommy so much so we decided for another one. Hahaha… Seriously.

 So here I am, juggling family, and career. I have to say I’m really lucky because my husband understand what I am doing. He better understand, right… he is a doctor, for God sake! But still, I feel like I didn’t give my 100% for this exam. I know I could have done a lot better in term of preparation, but to be honest, I prefer to play with my children more. I feel like my girls are growing up too fast. We registered B for her Primary 1 school last week! I can’t believe myself either!

 OK, landing Kota Bharu real soon. I probably spend whole day in my hotel room until exam is over. Flying back to KL the night after I finish my last paper on Monday.

 Wish me luck. I need it so bad. I wish you all a great weekend ahead.


Dry Shampoo

2 updates here..

#1 I’m officially hooked to Snapchat. Hahahah.. Been snapchatting like a 14-yr old girl. But it’s nice. Or maybe this is just my midlife crisis 😝

#2 Yup, the video… that was taken from my Snapchat. Of course it has to be less than 10 second. I finally found the solution to my problem when I work out twice a day.. Dry shampoo!! It is such hassle to wash hair after every time I work out and too time consuming.. wash, dry / blow-dry and possible damaging to my hair.. So, dry shampoo is the answer! Why didn’t I think about that before..

I did feel like a genius for a while.. Hehe..


A Present

Hubsy came back home early today..

First thing he said to me “I bought you a present!”

My eyes gleamed like the anime cartoon character. Suddenly I remember last night I told him about the bag that I really wanted…

I have palpitations..

“OMG S, you are the…..”

“Check this out..!” he said..


Kettelebells.. yeah.. great!

Not handbag 🙈 but it’s pink.. Hahahah..

To the gym H and S goes… and they live happily ever after..

*insert fireworks here*


My New Addiction…

Unbelievable… and I’m not talking about handbags!!

For the past few months, 4 months to be exact, I have started to exercise regularly.. When I say regularly, I mean everyday… Sometimes twice a day when I have the time!! The only days I don’t work out is when I’m on call or I had too much exposure to gas at work that made me too sleepy. Hahaha.. The rest of the days.. I’m on!

What makes me change?

I’m under a lot of stress lately and my body mechanism when I’m stressed up is to shop and eat!! Hahahaha.. Sounds familiar? 😝

I will shop for clothes (because they are generally not as expensive as handbags and shoes..) and I will eat.. and since I eat so much, I have to shop for clothes again because I cannot fit into the clothes that I bought.. and the fact that I can’t fit into my new clothes makes me depressed even more… and it’s a vicious cycle!! It never ends!! 😔

Last November, after gaining so much weight, stressed up and my miscarriage.. I decided to change. I know I’m leading a unhealthy lifestyle and by the time I reach fourty.. I probably wouldn’t recognise myself..

So, I decided to change.. It was hard initially.. I was on fire literally for the first two weeks then the spirit went down. My body took time to adapt to my new routine. When I feel like giving up, I still dragged myself to the gym and just go for a brisk walk on the treadmill. Nothing hardcore on my bad gym day but at least I keep myself moving..


After a while, I’m starting to see the results, the numbers on the scale is getting smaller and I can fit into most of my clothes 👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻 That what drives me!

Now after 4 months, it has become a routine for me to eat clean and exercise everyday, and I feel bad if I skipped a day! Never thought that day would come, eh? 😝

Check out my gym songs . No Beyonce, no sweat! Haha..

So, who has been a good girl sticking to your 2016 resolution so far?


I have lost 10 kg in total *insert big round applause here*

Who run the world? Girls!!!


New Work Station!

I’m maid-less right now!!

The kakak who stays with me is currently in Dublin. Yup, you got it right.. She is in Dublin, Ireland visiting my sister who gave birth about two weeks ago.. (We have a boy in the family… finally!! Hello Alfie!!)

So, here I am… like headless chicken running around. Haha… I just finished my Intensive Course which was … pretty intense! So much to catch up with work, study, house chores, family, hamsters…

Here’s my new work station.. No more proper table with book racks.. Hahahahah.. My new work station is at the laundry area near the kitchen.. I do laundry, fold, ironing, shop online, pay bills, read notes while folding clothes here!


A woman gotta do what a woman gotta do, right!

It’s the weekend and that was my first batch laundry. More to come, that means the pile is gonna grow.. Hehe… Wish me luck!

I need coffee now…


Hi all!!

Hopefully all of you are doing great beating Tuesday blues after a long weekend break! In my case, nothing new, I had to work over the weekend and coming back to work today.. oncall! By 9am today, I had 5 of my colleagues telling me that I look tired. Haha.. No worries, all fixed after my cup of coffee. Coffee is definitely my magic drug!

Anyway, that’s not my point.. I just wanna tell you what happened yesterday… Besides it was Merdeka day, I was post call. Had a bad ICU call the night before.. So when I came back home, finished some housechores, bathe my girls, did some Kumon worksheet with B,  feed them lunch, then my husband asked me to rest for a while. I must looked like a real zombie yesterday..  Haha..

My girls know they can play with ipad or phone only during the weekends. Tasha took my phone to watch her favourite kids story app. I was too tired to bother where did she went with the phone.

Guess where did she go?

She went to the bathroom, decided to flood the bathtub with water and the last thing my husband heard was Tasha screaming out loud because her diaper was burst filled up with water…. Kahkahkah!

OMG! I was glad nothing happened to her because she was alone in the bathroom and bathtub was almost full. I had a mini heart attack when I saw the water in the bathtub and thinking about when could have happened to her. Great great relief! Thanks to her burst diaper, she got scared. Hehe…

Owh.. and I forgot to mention, my phone was found next to the bathtub.. Wet!

I quickly googled “my iphone dropped into water, help”


So, the acute management for this kind of situation is..

#1 dry the iPhone with towel

#2 take out the sim card

#3 do NOT use hairdryer to blow dry the iPhone – almost.. almost did this! I was soo tempted!

#4 keep the iPhone is a ziplock bag full of rice. Apparently the rice will absorb the moisture from the phone.

#5 Check back after 3 days!

Hahahahaha.. yes, at least 3 days!

I don’t have 3 days! And I’m oncall today. I just can’t.. My husband called his Apple guy who somehow always have solutions to our Apple issues.. He opened up my phone, and tadaaaa.. it was full with water!

Currently my phone is still comatose and admitted to Apple ICU. I’m oncall today and I’m phoneless. I feel quite stressed up because I feel like I have no contact with the world.. you know, the instagram, whatsapp.. usual stuff :D I’m writing this from the hospital computer. and I have been writing emails to my husband too. Hahahaha..

The iPhone surgeon will update the condition of my phone this evening. Wish me luck. Whoever needs to post emergency orthopaedic case to me, please call OT straight.. Haha..

Have a nice day!


Answering Your SSWK Questions

Dear readers..

I received many emails regarding to this Secret Skin White Kawaii Collagen drink product. Here’s the answer to most of the questions. I’m answering this from my knowledge and experience. Hope this will answer your questions..

1) Is it safe for pregnancy?

From my professional opinion, try to avoid any extra supplement / medications during first trimester of pregnancy. This is because first trimester of pregnancy is where the organogenesis (development of the organ) of the embryo will be form. No strong study to support this supplement is safe to be consume. Please don’t take the risk. After completion of first trimester, it is fairly safe to consume because embryo’s organ formation is complete. InsyaAllah.

2) Is it safe for breastfeeding?


3) Should I not taking caffeine while consuming this product?

As of any anti-oxidant supplement, it is not advisable to take caffeine. Caffeine is a diuretics. Diuretics mean it makes you pee a lot more. Peeing a lot can cause your body to be dehydrated. When body is dehydrated, so does the skin!! Dehydrated skin will hasten your aging process.

On the other hands, you are drinking anti-oxidant and collagen at the same time to slow down your aging process.

In other words, you are actually contradicting the effect of anti-oxidant and collagen. Do you get what I mean? No point of taking supplements and counter act the action at the same time.

I’m a caffeine addict. Well, no so bad but I need my daily dose of caffeine. And I drink my caffeine in the morning to get me going. On top of my coffee, I drink a lot of water to make sure I stay hydrated. I don’t think I can function without caffeine. Hahaha.. So, to all coffee lovers, we still have hope ok!!

4) When is the best time to take the anti-oxidant / collagen supplement?

As far as I know, the best time to consume any anti-oxidant / collagen-containing product is at night. This is because the skin renewal activity is happening while we sleep. Just take it before you go to bed and leave it to your body to do the job. I don’t think to is wise to take it first thing in the morning for me because I’m taking my coffee during daytime and I want to make sure my body is well-hydrated while I’m on my mission to beautify myself. Haha.. So, before bed works for me!!

5) Is it halal?

Yes. It’s enclosed with the product leaflet when you buy it.

Have you seen the latest packaging.. It still comes in small sachets inside this jar. That makes this SSWK product better than others. The quality of the anti-oxidant content is guaranteed because the content will not be oxidised every time we open the jar. Previous, I wrote about why we need anti-oxidant in our daily life..

I hope I have answered all your questions.

Remember all coffee addicts, drink a lot of water. We still have hopes!! Hahaha..
