Assalamualaikum and Olla everyone!

How are you? Hope you are feeling great as we are about to enter 2017. Yeehaaa! Alhamdulilah we are given a chance to make the most out of another year. As new page is about to unveiled, I decided to do a recap post of what have been happening for the past one year. Life is so unpredictable, many things can happen.. sometime we win and sometime we learned lesson. 2016 have been an impactful year for me and my little family. This is going to be a bit of lenghty post (gosh many things happened in a year) but I will try to keep it as brief as possible. Let’s start shall we?

No automatic alt text available.

I kicked off 2016 with a broken ankle haha.. I was trying to paint my bathroom wall and it is not a secret that I could be clumsy at times. End up doing gymnastic move in the toilet and fall hard end up with a broken ankle. What a way to start a new year huh? hahaha You see, When you have a positive mind, you’re always in a state of being happy with reality no matter what shows up. This gives you a wonderful sense of inner calm and peace

Grab your #IWillBeOkay Bag and Be Part of Change!

Assalamualaikum and Olla everyone!

How are you today? Hope you are feeling awesome. Well, today I would like to share with you about #IWillBeOkay Bag and what derived the the existance of the beauty bag. #IWillBeOkay is an ongoing campaign that is initiated by by my blogger friend Fiona Loh. The main purpose of creating the bag is to fund a cause to 'Fight Against Depression' Awareness Campaign.

Fiona is very passionate about the cause as she herself have been trough the phase. Why do I say phase? Because I truly believe that nothing is permenant. That you have the power within you to change how you feel. It could be from happy to sad or it could also be the other way around. Yes, life itself is a roller-coaster right. We cant be 100% happy all the time and they same way we cant be sad and depress all the time. It could come in waves and by having this awareness campaign it could encourage those who are in the phase of battling depression to seek for help when ever needed.

The main thing is you have to decide and fight for your happiness. To be completely honest, just because I smile all the time and tried my best to look at the positive side, it does not mean that I do not have down moment. It is life,sometime it will make you felt so down and so defeated but you need to know that only you can change how you feel about what’s happening in your life. One tips that I could share with all of you today is that when you are feeling low, do talk to someone you trust and genuinely care for you. Those who truly love you want the best for you and they will try their very best to give you advices. Be around people who bring out the best in you as much you will bring out the best in them.  Will talk more aout this next time, there are plenty of ways to seek for info and help nowadays. I am not the best person to advice on depression as I am not a professional. However if you need someone to talk, I want each one of you to know you can always reach out to me.

Talking about the beauty bag, these are all the products that you can find in the bag. The bag valued RM611 and it can be yours at the cost of RM99. I have to also mention that 100% of the money will go into the fund. Meaning you will be part of the change. I always believe that it is not what you have that make you happy but it is more of what you give. The more you give out to the world the more of it will come back to you. Like a boomerang affect. I am not just talking about monetary, I am also talking about love, kindness and also the act of care. Not just to people you know but also strangers as everyone you currently know was once a stranger.

Sofea First Camera! NIKON COOLPIX W100

NIKON COOLPIX W100 | Review|

Assalamualaikum and Olla everyone!

How are you today? Hope you are feeling great. Today I would like to share with you about my daugther’s first ever gadget which is Nikon CoolPix W100. I still remember when I was a child my father have always been obsess about camera. Like seriously, lots of my memories with  him involving taking picture. Everyone in the family knows that  my dad love to capture moments. Every time we have family event like kenduri, raya and even birthday.. my dad is the camera man. Those were the days when camera were still pretty manual and not really a necessity. No such thing as digital screen. You have to snap and pray that the picture will turn out good. Each roll of film you have maximum 36 try out. Because they is no erase button hahaha.. I dont know if you can relate but ya those were the days.

Some of the pictures taken by my dad.

Normally, my sibling and I were his model. We were requested to stay beside flowers, statue, and even banner hahahaha.. It is safe to say we had good training to pose in front of camera ever since we were a child and none of my siblings were camera shy hahaha.. I dont know how many times we went to camera shop to accompany him to print out pictures. My dad love printing pictures and collect an album. Ever since I was a little girl, my dad never go out of the house without his camera.

Fast forward to current day, I would say my dad were the one that introduce me to photography and I am glad he did. It allow me to capture moment with my family and even help me in blogging. Even I am not a pro in picture taking but I honestly love the process. As it reminded me of my dad’s passion.

Okay now that I have a daughter, she seem to love taking picture and I think it is a good idea to introduce her to photography from young age. Since that we now live in a fast pace world they even had camera specially for kids!!

Check List Beg Hospital Untuk Ibu and Bayi

Assalamualaikum and Olla everyone!

Kali ini illy nak share  apa yang illy packing dalam beg hospital illy dan juga baby. Harap dapat membantu in the future kalau korang nak bersalin ke kan. Bear in mind, illy punya list ni berdasarkan keperluan illy dan kita semua ada keperluan berbeza. Ada yang lebih sempoi dan ada juga orang yang lebih detail. Illy buat post ni dengan harapan untuk membantu bagi idea apa yang korang nak pack. Hopefully it helps.

Dulu masa sofea illy tak pernah buat blogpost pasal hospital beg, so this round illy rasa mungkin a good idea to do so. Ada juga illy pernah buat blogpost list barang check list apa keperluan yang tu alhamdulilah 99% barang dah lengkap. Kalau korang nak baca, jap click kat sini , Kalau nak baca pengalaman illy bersalin pun boleh ada dari start illy pregnant anak first sampai lah bersalin. Yang tu boleh click sini Kali ini untuk adik sofea illy buat pregnancy update juga, nanti boleh search lah blog illy penat plak nak tampai link banyak – banyak hahaha..

Ni illy share pasal beg hospital jer tau, beg untuk berpantang lain. Sebab illy akan duduk kat confinement center 2 minggu (dorang sponsor 1 week pastu husband illy tambah 1 week lagi) pastu balik rumah lepas tu kami ambik confinement lady yang datang rumah tu.

Illy tak beli beg baru khas untuk beg hospital sebab rasa macam membazir. Illy pakai beg luggage yang kami biasa travel tu. Sebab ada 2 size. Yang size 20 inch yang boleh check in tu illy buat beg hospital then yang besar 30 inch illy pakai untuk pergi confinement center . Beg confinement center tu kena besar sebab 2 minggu nak duduk situ dan barang sofea and my husband sekali. Sebab kitorang semua duduk situ sepanjang 2 minggu. Beg Hospital pakai yang 20 inch tu cukup sebab paling lama pun 3 hari Insya Allah. Harap adik takda complication and dapat keluar hospital segera. Amin.

9 Questions To Unravel The Questions of To Rent or Buy

Buying a home is probably one of the few life goal and perhaps one of the biggest financial commitments in our lives. We can be stressed over the questions of buying or renting especially for those who have been trying to look for the myriad of house for sales in the market while continuing staying in a rental property.

To ease the anxiety, Business Insider has come out with the following flow chart that best unravel the questions that have perturbed most of us. While there’s no universal right answer, but these 9 questions will force you to think thoroughly and complete your decision process.

The 9 questions are:

1. Do you plan to be in this home for five or more years?

The general thumb is you might want to be sure you’ll be in the same location for at least five years. Otherwise, you’re probably going to take a hit financially when you have paid a steep interest in the first few years as well as having to go through the closing stage.

2. Do you have an emergency fund?

Never put all the eggs in one basket. If you are eligible of a mortgage loan and you have secure sufficient fund for the down payment, you might want to see if you will be able to survive for another 6 months to 1 year without any income coming in.

Do stay tune till the end of the post as two winners will get a chance to win 2D1N of 1 bedroom deluxe apartment valued at RM 480++ per night. So, you will get to enjoy it with your family too!!

Oakwood Hotel & Residence Kuala Lumpur is located at Jalan Ampang, if you know the famous Hock Choon sueprmarket, it is right in front of it. Also, a another landmark would be AmpWalk Mall. It is right beside AmpWalk Mall. Basically, it is located at such strategiclocation. If you travel with family and run out of diapers and things like that, just walk down the hotel and taaa daaaaaa.. solved! haha

For those who stay outside of Kuala Lumpur, this hotel is a great option becasue it is also a stone away from KLCC. If you are the the fit type, it is walkable distance. However, if you are not very fit (like me) you can always get a cab. Here is the full address of also the map to Oakwood Hotel & Residence Kuala Lumpur
