Free Printable : Al-Fatihah (Verse 5)

Hello lovelies. It's October!

Guess what? I have been busy starting my own project, somethingseni. Which is doing great, not much but I'm glad I have started something. So as an apologies token for not updating a lot last month, I just wanna share something I made.

but first, have you ever heard how amazing, mind-blowing facts about al-Fatihah?

You should check out Nouman Ali Khan on his talk about al-Fatihah. I am no expertise to talk on his behalf tau..Please do check ok.

Ultimately important lesson I stumble upon was, the middle ayat, verse number 5. In English:

"You (alone) we worship and You (alone) we ask for help"

Why you should start doing your own biz, now?

Be your own boss, have flexible working time, decide your biz goals, live your dream life...who doesn't love that?

Everyone must have a dream to do something they love, right? I find that it is hectic, living a life that half of it are merely to just 8-5 work. Don't you think?

I used to work at an office that an hour far from my home, daily. Stuck in traffic, spend RM300 on gas and toll, late night working and I really don't have time to myself. I love working there. The problem is the time management. Imagine that.

So, isn't it great to have your own home office?

Here a few motivating quote to help you to take a leap.

Recipe : Ayam Masak Masin / Salted Egg Chicken

At first, it sounded bizarre to me. I saw it in a menu in Tupai-tupai - Ayam Masak Masin and I was like..masin? who would ever wanted a salty dish? Then I ask the waiter calmy la, and he told me that Masin came from the Telur Masin, the red one. He finally assured us to try it as it is their signature dish.

It was delicious!

I can't get enough of it, so making them myself! I have been making this dishes whenever I don't have time to prepare things. Same as my butter prawn recipe, it is just a simple dish, no hassle. Even you lil sister can make this. 

Here's the recipe I've change a bit to suit my ke-malasan.

Faith Friday : Sembah

I'm sure that everyone had gone through this kind of situation. 

"Ah...pakai tudung tapi baju sexy"
"Okay la.. She prays 5 times a day, though she's not covering her aurat "

Conflict sangat and it has wrongly be a norm these days. 

Instead of questioning about other people, we should ask ourselves first - Do you obey Allah? or do you obey Allah in certain times only? Like in masjid, while reciting the Quran or fasting in Ramadan. 

It is kinda confusing what our culture has made us, building up walls dividing custom and religion. I've seen people that perform Jumaat prayer, but not daily prayer. They think Jumaat prayer is just a custom/tradition. Same goes with wearing telekung to prayer (covering aurat) but still wearing tight clothes outside of prayer.

Here are my favourite:

Day 37 - Favorite TV shows

Firstly, I am a huge fan of tv series. Seriously.

and I think it is bad, very bad. I watch any sort of series. from, adventure, thriller, reality-tv, cooking, horror, crime, drama or even factory production. How it's made is my favourite okay. I am easily fascinated with all the process, seeing series of bottles in line, a machine cutting hundred of funny la rasa.

On top of that, I even re-watched them through net tau. Maybe you can already guess what series do I followed from my previous post such as..

25 Adorable B Nicknames

Calling someone you love with nicknames shows that you really love them right? Like naming your pets even they didn't even response to it. Sometimes the name sounds silly and not even a word. Still, the sillier it gets, the closest it shows the relationship.

I used to call my husband 'gugu-gaga' makes him laugh but question "whyyy.." as it sounds absurd to him.

Well, the truth is...back then he looked like a cute little baby! He used to shave off his facial hairs and not intended to grow any. Let's keep it a secret okay.

Friendly Fashion : Closing

friendly fashion iconIn this time of finding good quality and cheap price of clothes for hari raya, my mind is on friendly fashion website. I can browse at that site for hours without even knowing it. I don't mind buying and wearing used / pre-loved clothes. In fact I'm proud of it. (as well as jimat kan). As stated on my 2012 post about friendly fashion: not just burning your calories. Unfortunately, as you may already knew that friendly fashion was closed down effective from 1 July 2013. It has been a year since then!

Day 10 - Photos that makes you sad

gaza israel conflict
I am so sick with what is happening to humanity these days. You can't just simply go to someone's house and force them to get out from their own home and then claim that its yours. Motif ?

I saw a comment from this awesome Islamic comic, The Muslim Show. I shall share it here as it was beautifully explain :)

I love its vibrant orange colour (not healthy juga all those food colouring) and it turned out great as a carrot-look-alike too.
Carrot Favor

We even made a white carrot. Keropok roda as the filling.

It was so simple to make this cute favor. Maybe you don't even need any tutorial. but...I made a tutorial already. So here, Carrot Favor Tutorial!

Drawing Dreams | MARA Result

The result was out months ago but I don't have the courage to face the music. I failed to get the MARA loan and I have tried to appeal but it didn't work out.

What I've been through was like a massive water ripple effect. Everything, emotionally for instant has been tarnished.

It all started last year. I really wanted to finish my study and decided to take Master of Architecture. Unlike other courses, we are studio-based and technical course need to prepare extra documentation. I was so determined and put my best preparing portfolio, resume, personal statement and university application.

 I managed to get 3 offer letters, unconditional from University of Liverpool and Lincoln University and conditional offer from Liverpool John Moores University. Which I believe not so important to MARA as they didn't ask for offer letter (quote from MARA officer).

Small Home Ideas : IKEA Wishlist

It has been a year and half living in a new rented house, yet most parts of the house are not well decorated. Talking about decoration, first thing that come across is IKEA. Who doesn't love them right?

I love their simplicity and clean design. Minimalist equals to big YES!

I shall start small and here is my inspiration list.

Top on our list. KLIPPAN two-seat sofa price at RM599.

Faith Friday : Al-kahfi

Truthfully, I didn't know about the sunnah of reciting al-kahfi during Friday. During boading school, we recited Yassin every Friday. It's was like a weekly routine and I got used to it.

I hope everyone know about this fact, why we have to recite al-kahfi.

There are 4 trials that can be learned from al-kahfi and Subhanallah, solution on how do we survive can be found in surah al-kahfi too.

Day 24 - Don't take this for granted

Have you watched the video? I feel so sad to realize how badly technology has been affecting us. We spend too much time everyday looking down at our phone. It's kind of depressing to see it affecting not just grown-ups but kids. I mean, do we have to keep kids quiet by giving them those devices? There is a lot of ways to keep them entertained and quiet, right?

Born in late 80's, I am so grateful that I had a chance to play outside, enjoy the sun, climbing trees and got hurt and I don't care. Compared to kids nowadays, they always inside playing games, online. Some got addicted to it and just don't care what happened around them.

Disconnected. Which explain my current life. Oh well, talking about I am writing virtually. Using the net. 

The thing is, I had lost my samsung galaxy note last two months due to mainboard failure. In order to replace the mainboard it will cost me a fortune. RM300-450++. So my smartphone are not smart anymore. Dead. haha...

So now, I am lucky as my previous phone nokiaE72 is still functioning. Wait, it is consider as smartphone as I can still whatsapp and email.:D On positive side, it doesn't need charging frequently - the battery can last up to a week and making me less dependent on the phone. On the other hand however, I kind of missing my note :( Frankly, breaking up with your loyal companion is hard.

  • Common problems, lost all phone numbers that aren't attached to the sim phone book. Sorry people if I don't have your number. Besides, I also lost important dates such as birthday.
  • My E72 has no apps that could distract me all day long. No more games, candy crush, guess the emoji. I only has solitaire and block cascade installed, which is factory default setting.  Not to forget, instagram, facebook or twittter. I have to log in on computer to access social media and for sure I am malas to do so. I don't know if I should be happy or sad about this. 
  • In addittion to the apps, I lost count of my period calculation. I was counting from the apps and never ever note it down on paper. Talking about too dependent on technology. I should have wrote it somewhere or ask my husband to remember it for me. I also forgot how many days left to ganti puasa :(
  • I shall mention my dead note special function. It lets you taking notes easily, making to-do list, stylus pen, s planner, 8mp camera, huge screen and the list goes on. It a lie if I didn't think of getting those shiny-new-launched-golden note 3. Always a dream. 2k ++ seems out of my monetary budget at the moment.
  • Lastly but most important, I don't have the access to Al-Quran 24/7. I really missed it though. Really. It was convenient apps ever. I can just read it anywhere with just one click away. I love the translation, I love that we can scroll down and do search findings on surah. Bookmarking important ayat and access it instantly. Also I can learn proper recitation of ayat. I am so sad. This is the best part of having smartphone :( I am shame to admit that it is hard for me to bring the book of Al-Quran anywhere I go. Let not discuss the excuses. I shall start to do so though.

Can you live without your smartphone?

and kids, that's "How I Met Your Mother"

Just watched it and I am so SAD right now. It is just that I haven't thought an hour could feel like years. It was fast, packed with lots of big moments, kind of rushed a bit. well, what can you expect, it was the last episode. There was a lot of things going on there and all I can say.. what a Legendary Ending!

I really like the ending though. It was simple and sweet kan..*tears welling up* I know that some of the fans went outrage and mad over the ending and keep saying what a waste of nine years. Well, the beginning nor the ending should matter the most right? What I mean is the process for all of it. You got to know all 5 characters plus the mother in the last season. Not to forget every life lessons that we have learned. I think that should overcome all the negative comments.

Already missing HIMYM. It feels like all of them are real and out there somewhere. No more updates on their life. I'm so in need of those "high infinity!" Let it echoes. Maybe re-watched all of their episodes.


and this is my favourite scene of all. Nine years to know how exactly they met and it was so sweet. She's so beautiful. Ok. Sorry for the spoiler, if you haven't watched it.You should have watched them!

p/s: I love the twist at the end. So unexpected.  Everyone should move on. Letting  someone / something go is hard, somehow they really show that it is possible.

Drawing Dreams | MARA Interview Tips


The interview starts today and some of us still don't have the exact date. MARA only stated 1-3 April for the interview and I'm already nervous. So, to curb my anxiety problems, trust Allah and get prepared is the right solution.  Googled some of tips from various blogs; afterschoolmygabus, sophie (interview uitm), I would like to share what I found.

So, basically MARA stated these on their site and please prepare all the required documents. Put it in order will lessen your kelam-kabut if ask to find any.

Compare to last year and year before (2013 and 2012), base from my friends solely, there was no interviews for postgraduate. However, some said that they had a group and individual interviews since 2009 for MARA scholarship/loan. I can't verify if it was for postgraduate or undergraduate. More or less we shall be prepared la kan.

Briefly, the group session was like this:

“Calon perlu mendaftar di kaunter pendaftaran berdasarkan panel yang diberi. Jika tidak silap saya, ada 12 panel kesemuanya. Setiap panel mengandungi 8 calon dan 3 penemuduga. Calon akan diberi tugasan dan perlu membahagikan masing-masing kepada 2 atau 3 kumpulan. Temuduga keseluruhannya mengambil masa 1 jam. 40 minit akan diberi kepada calon untuk berbincang dan membuat perbentangan sesama sendiri. Penemuduga tidak mengambil bahagian dan sekadar memerhati sahaja. Setelah perbincangan dan perbentangan selesai, penemuduga akan bertanya tentang tugasan dan tentang ahli kumpulan yang lain (contohya ahli mana yang patut dilantik menjadi ketua ataupun jika ada peniru di kalangan mereka.) Setiap seorang calon akan ditanya satu soalan. Setelah itu, penemuduga akan bertanya tentang kursus yang diambil oleh calon. Sesi ini bersifat terbuka dan sesiapa sahaja dibenarkan menjawab soalan. 
(via: afterschool)

and more detailed example; rephrase from yaya,

  • Calon diminta duduk ikut turutan dari no 1 - 7 (meja mesyuarat), atas meja ada 1 task. 
  • Task: ada 8 orang di dalam hot air balloon : yb. dato seri najib tun abdul razak (Prime minister), rozita che wan (acteress), dr. fadzhillah kamsah (motivator), khairul fahmi che mat (goalkeeper), tony fernandes (bisnes leader), yb dato ibrahim bin mohamad (ketua pengarah MARA), zety (gabenor bank negara) and islamic minister. 
  • Select one character and discuss , debate, tolerate and defend our chosen character, kenapa character kita must be save from the hot air ballon.
  • kita kena menonjol sikit. cari peluang untuk bercakap.  group saya, okaylah semua dapat bercakap, (except dua org, sampai interviewer tu tegur kenapa tak bercakap )
  • at the end of the discussion, select only 4 characters to be save.  kitorang sepakat memilih: prime minister, ketua pengarah MARA, gabenor bank negara and islamic minister. 
  • then, habis discussion (40 minit) kitorang boleh tanya apa2 soalan kepada interviewers. ( 3 interviewers - 2 org lelaki, sorang perempuan).
  • apa lagi, peluang ni saya guna untuk bertanya tentang pinjaman ni.

I  can relate this to my previous interview in 2005, for Petronas scholarship. Basically there was 2 sessions, group and individual. First it started with group. Each group will be given a topic, my group topic was deforestation. You have to pick from a box randomly, a method to curb the problems. I got campaign as a method to halt deforestation. Others got authority rules, recyling, etc. From that you have to discuss among yourself to pick the right order for a solution. 

I believe the interviewers just wanted to know how will you work in a team, personal skills, contribution in a group, some sort mcmtu I think. Now I am even worried. Nowadays, we are as postgraduates, they will expect more as we have grown this far right.

Some Basic Rules
  1. be early - an hour before lg bagus, in case sesat jalan or no parking
  2. well-dressed - baju kurung with no more than 3 colours tau. serabut nanti. 
  3. knock the door and give salam - show respect to the interviewers
  4. sit still, smile - body language is important 

Common Interviews Questions
  1. Please introduce yourself
  2. Why do you choose to pursue study in  _______(the cost : architecture/medicine/...)
  3. Who is your favourite architect? Favourite building? (those applying architecture)
  4. Why oversea universities and not local universities?
  5. Instead of JPA, why do you choose MARA?
  6. How will you contribute to MARA in future time?
  7. Where do you see yourself 10 years from now?

- On introducing yourself, please don't be boring. Help the interviewer to remember you by giving some unique things about yourself. For instant, your hobbies or interest. This will grab their attention and help them to know you better. 

- Why do you choose architecture, please don't answer it because of "passion". Too many of us will give the same answer. I believe you should be detail and relate it to what you have learned. For example, relate it to your ambition, strength, challenges, hopes..or maybe environmental issue, current issue, pollution. 

- In terms of question on predicting future, I suppose the answer is somehow to know how commit yourself towards the study/industry. Convince the interviewer on how determine yourself to become successful in what you have chosen.  

Extra Tips

- keep update with current issue, in case they ask for opinion.
- do a research to know a bit about MARA.
- keep calm while answering the question.
- don't talk too fast or too slow that you can't be heard.
- be confidence
- don't forget to doa and tawakkal. Allah will ease everything, InsyaAllah.

Wish you all the best! Good luck. :D

Oh! Krabi, Thailand - 3rd Day

Third Day
Activity booked : Kayaking and Elephant Trekking
Ao Thalane - Krabi
Price : 950 Baht / person (because of the low season)

Kayaking is least favourite activities among tourist, as beaches and fishes sounds more appealing. Yet we opted to do kayaking as we haven't done it before and the mangrove forest is remarkably beautiful. 

Early in the morning at 8.00 am, if I'm not mistaken we already arrived at Ao Thalane. It was nerve wrecking thinking if I able to do it without getting drowning. While our tourist guide / kayaking trainer told 3 of us, which include one Thai woman, how to row, safety issue as well as our route, I can hear my heart pumping as I was looking at what in front of us, the wide open river.

I have never been so close to the water surface, it felt like we were going to sink. I remember feeling nauseated looking at the deep green water and it was too late to turn back as we were already in the kayak. I've sat at front and my husband at the back. I looked at him and he was smiling like a boy. He was really excited to begin with and I was nervous. Not a good combination. So, he willingly to do all the rowing and let me get busy with camera to calm down :D Sweet kan? 

The kayaking started from a river to a mangrove forest and then towards an open sea. Actually, there was a lot of species we saw. Mostly small animals, insects and fortunately, no crocodiles or snakes (but I believe I saw one)

Can you spot a group of monkey? Most of the monkey here,they eat mangrove tree crab instead of fruits. Makan besar hari-hari diorg ni.

It was our first time kayaking and Ya Allah..what a very good workout. Perasan sikit jadi wonder woman time tu. Later that day, I felt that I had lost my arms due to muscle soreness. Nevertheless, it was a really memorable memory that we shared together. 

I've only managed to snap this photo while at the open sea. It was terrifying! The current Kencang? Berombak la sikit2.. We have to row twice harder as we need to row opposite direction of the waves. We saw a couple of senior people got lost at the open sea and I was afraid if we are going to drown, again. 

We can't believe that total time spent to complete the route tour was 4 hours! Sweat? Big YES. Kurus tidak..hehehe... Oh, that time, the tide was high as it was a full moon. So anyone going kayaking at Ao Thalane? Please ensure it full moon or otherwise you'll be kayaking on sand and mud. 

I'm not going to review our second activity on Elephant Trekking as I am so regret that I did. I saw a video on how they abuse elephants for the sake of tourism after we went to Krabi. Poor elephants :(

As a tourist, say NO to elephant manipulation. Stop animal cruelty now. 

Thinking to ride the elephant? Please think of this video.

Drawing Dreams | MARA Psychometric Test


Just finished the test. *scream* I feel much more relief as it has been a while since I last sat for any exam. Actually, the best part of this year MARA test is it has to be taken online and anywhere that has net connection. Well, for me I was at home. TV was off, no music. Konon-konon nak fokus kan. 

So, today is the first day of the online test and there is no reference on how the test going to be. I have searched and asked few of my friends who had passed the exam last year but the format may not be the same. Found a blog, Let's Dream High that has the best explanation of the test for 2013. 

So, basically I'm not going to explain what was the test in detail. I just hope this brief post will help someone, at least to get better view of the test and get prepared, if any. 

As on MARA page as above, time given is 60 minutes to answer all 100 questions. There will be a counter on top of the page. The test consist of 3 sections; A, B and C. All questions are multiple answer questions. No essay, as last year. :D and no diagrams, just a schedule I think. Based on my test today solely, it was about 3 different aspects.

SECTION A : 32 q - Simple math, Logical thinking, Problem solving (in English)
SECTION B : 48 q - Personality (in English)
SECTION C : 20 q - General Knowledge of Malaysia and MARA (in Bahasa)

These are some type of questions that I've remember, roughly. Pardon if I'm wrong.

Simple math 
| Choose a number, add 11, subtract 13 out of it,...

Logical thinking
| There are 4 doors, which one is the door to freedom?
| A mother has 3 daughters, A and B, what her last daughter's name?

Problem solving 
| If an animal wanted to get across a river, what will it do?  

Personality test 
| Rate yourself from 1-5, ex: happy and cheerful person, always be on time, a good leader..

Malaysia & MARA 
| Penubuhan Malaysia, Perlembagaan, Mahkamah, Kementerian, Kesultanan, 

You might need 
- Sheets of paper
- Pen/Pencil
- Dictionary
- Calculator

I've answered all 100 questions in 56 minutes and don't have ample time to re-check all of my answers. Blame the counter as it was in red and making me panicked. haha..ok joking. Is it hard? Yes, part of it. You have to deal with time and be precise with the answer. Please bare in mind that lots of questions in part A is quite tricky. Some questions, had already stated the answer clearly, afraid you might misread the question. Plus, I find it hard as you have to click on everything and move from one page to page. 

Extra Tips
- I find it easier to read the answer first and then the question.
- Please read with careful the question. If you got confused, read it again.
- Some straight forward questions can be tricky. 
- I think it is better to be prepared for sections C.
- Read some info on Malaysia and MARA.
- Please be on time.
- Don't forget to doa and tawakkal.

Good luck everyone :)

p/s: I can't guaranteed if tomorrow's test going to be exactly the same as today. As well as, I believe the test is computer generated and might be different set of question for every applicants or at least for the day kan.

Day 45 - Pronounces someone's name right

It was year 2010, after my friends and I watched Prince of Persia : The Sands of Time. They were talking about how hot Jake Gylenhaal was in the movie. While they were falling in love with  how his long silky hair moves, his muscular arms and his eyes melting my friends' soul and everything, my mind was questioning how to pronounce his name.

So I asked them "what did you pronounce his last name again? "

Since then, I would address him as "Jake ji-len-hall" confidently. but guess what, it is WRONG! Please watch following video on how he pronounce his name. Well, no worries, actually there are lots of people get it wrong.

It is so hard to pronounce it right anyway. "E-len-hul-le". Nevermind, his acting is spectacular actually. I'm his fan since the movie. Pengaruh rakan sebaya.

Oh! Krabi, Thailand - 2nd Day

Second Day
Activitiy booked : Island Hopping
Bamboo Island - Viking Cave - Monkey Bay - Maya Beach - Phi Phi Island
Price : 100 Baht / person (because of the low season)

I should have wrote this a long time ago. So pardon my memories, everything seems hazy now. Might mixed up with angan-angan or exaggerated feelings. We were at Krabi from 22 May till 25 May 2013. So, I really wanted to go for snorkeling. Yes we did, but only once. The girl maybe had misinformed us that every island we will have lots of time to do our own activities and snorkel all day long. It was too good to be true, but we had booked it anyway and put our expectation too high. So just don't repeat my mistake ok ladies.

My camera didn't do justice to the scenery. It was quite a paradise back there! The water was so clear that you even can see your own feet.

Last stop was Phi-Phi Island. It is the most developed island. Overpopulated maybe. I was quite surprised as the island has a lot of things, hotels, restaurant, shops and tons of activities.
