Sometimes I wanna ask how she is

Words of worries long to slip from my lips

But I opted silence

and though I can sense her soundless cry

I stayed heedless

Not because I do not care

I do…I do

But the weaker me had the steering wheel

Had to follow the voice

The stronger actor that I used to play

Came to extinct

I can find her no more Read the full post »

DIY: Turn Stash Into Cash

  • image

Salam everyone! It’s a lovely evening around here and I just had a mug of coffee (yeah mug) to fuel me up. I hope everyone is as energized as I am right now Alhamdulillah. Well, this is an overdue post which I planned to post a couple of months back before graduate school took most of my precious time.

Well, tonight I made a timeline that I had to have this post published before I get into encoding my Statistics assignment. So here we are…are you ready?

Those who are following my Facebook page The Crafty Hijabi would notice my lack of posts and instead my business page Hijabella Shop – Handmade Hijab Accessories is teeming with photos and uploads. Last year I decided to sell my handmade crafts specifically hijab brooches and pins which I originally made for myself but after some friends start inquiring if  I am selling those, I got the idea and why not sell them online and that’s where I started to take it seriously.

You probably be sipping your cup of coffee right now while reading this post. Why not? After all there is no such “appropriate time” for a coffee affair. But really, how much of a coffee is too much? Coffee to many, well I’ll start with myself first is a maintenance fluid every time you need an energy boost, it could be an understatement but it works just like a maintenance drug for a chronic illness that only coffee drinkers can relate to. What is it in coffee that hypnotizes drinkers from all walks of life? Why are coffee shops mushrooming and booming in the business industry today more than it does in the past decades? Had the earlier generations trivialized coffee and missed a lot of adrenaline kick that the younger generations should make up for their loss? Read the full post »

Expectations vs. Reality


Reality vs. Expectations. Is it difficult to discern reality versus illusion? Maybe not really. I think the problem is not with identifying wether we’re living in realistic world or fantasies but rather it is our willingness to embrace reality because most of the time reality hurts when it doesn’t fit into our yardstick of success.

As human, we are dreamers. We dream big. Who doesn’t?

We plan. We want to design our life. We want to be the engineer of our future. We want to be the marketing strategist of what we want to offer.

We are so optimistic that no one we can stand in our way and we, with our strong determination would do everything within our capacity to turn all those dreams into reality. Sounds fair and it is. Who says there’s something wrong in pursuing our dreams? In fact, most life coaches, psychologists and other experts on personal matters would recommend the same. While it would always be commendable for us to follow our dreams, we should condition our mind and heart that not all roads are smooth. There will always be bumpy ones, dead ends and cliffs. We are to be emotionally prepared to meet failures along the way and those expectations of ours would not always turn the way we envisioned it to be. Read the full post »
