Day 14 to 22 ~ #100daysselflovejourney

It's been so many days I've been swarmed with busy schedules in both world, at home and office; between my loved ones and juggling ongoing agendas at my work place that I wasn't capable to spare a moment at blog land. The clock never stop tickling but this very minute allow me to spend a moment filling up my blog and share my journey into every day living. 

Let me continue with "Day 14 ~ Quotes"  

I have actually lost track of time as I have been extremely busy at work. I don't know whether I am racing against time or I am racing for time. I am taking a short break from lunch break to go through my hundreds of whatsapp messages and this phrase really caught my attention. Just want share it. This is from one of the senders so I don't really know the origin of this image.

Days 15-18 ~ Packing

This is what is actually making my life topsy turvy right now. Packing the library is no joke and getting manual help at unexpected moment means thousands of gratitude. These are to be sent for offsite storage. Since my life has been endless packing and unpacking, I no longer grieve. I shall miss only material items, not friends.

Day 19 ~ Korean Food

Day 19 - My daughter and I miss Korea, in a way. So, she decided for us to have Korean food at #Sweetree_restaurant. These are starters actually before our orders came our way. We had a really good dinner that night. As always, Kimchi is the child's favourite and between us, there is no competition. The aubergines was mine, but the fried mushrooms and french beans were highly competed between the three of us. 

Day 20 ~ Noodles

I gave myself two treats on Saturday, ie a really good facial and body treatment and Homemade Noodles at #Al_Barakah restaurant, a Chinese Muslim restaurant. The owners are from China and the noodles will only be made upon order. I have heard of this kind of noodles many times before and to be able to enjoy it first-hand is really something else. I took this photo yesterday to show to my sister @asmahzainalabidin because she loves noodles. When she comes to visit me, this is where we are going to take her and her family.

Day 21 ~ Happy Birthday Card

I am right on track now. Today, my friend celebrated his twin daughters' 5th birthday. I didn't have time to buy a card for them so creted this simple card this morning before we left for the party.

Day 22 ~ Mind Makes Words

I was going through one of my boxes of stash for another project when this little card fell of the box. I had collected this card from Kinokuniya a long time ago and forgot about it. I decided to create this CAS layout to see how many words I can create. I wonder if my mind can really makes words dance. 

Having said that, I say adios for now. Till I see you tomorrow.Take care.

Day 8 and Day 9 ~ Picture Perfect Moment and Chocolates

Hey there!
Today I'm sharing two things I love best.

Day 8 ~ Picture Perfect Moment

Day 8 fell yesterday when I was still on vacation after my getaway in Langkawi Island so I managed to get some things done around the house. In other words, I became the housekeeper all day. The finale was a cup of coffee and just relax with my tab.

Day 9 ~ Chocolates

Whenever I have cravings, I'd go for chocolates. To me, chocolates are very therapeutic. Then again, I am very selective of the kind of chocolates I eat.

That's it for today.

Day 5 to Day 7 ~ Getaway

Hello friends! 
It was lovely weekend getaway for the Child and her former Tahfiz classmates (some of them only). Her dad and I and Humaira's mum, joined the trip at Payar Island, Langkawi for 2 reasons - as Chaperons and to get away from it all. I did not make any preparations at all for the trip and allowed myself to follow the flow. For me, it was a nostalgic trip reminiscent of my Geology Days and another trip I made with my little sister. So many changes has taken place actually. Should I plan to make a comeback, I shall make a full-blown preparation and maybe stay for a week. Before registering at the Hotel or Chalet, I headed to the Duty Free shop for chocolates. 
All in all, I did have a good time and Payar Island really took my breathe away.

Day 5 on August 5, 2016 ~ Sunset

Getting of the Boat at Kuah Jetty and to be greeted by this beautiful sunset.
Marvelous beauty.

Day 6 on August 6, 2016 ~ An outing to Pulau Payar

This island is snorkelers heaven. Then again, swimming and snorkeling is within designated zone. To get a close-up with the fishes, feeding is allowed, at your own risk. It took us one hour of boat ride from Kuah Jetty to reach Pulau Payar. We each pay RM150 for the boat ride and I am not sure whether that is a justifiable price to pay. Anyway, as long as the Child and the father enjoy themselves in the sea, not a problem. I know the biggest challenge will be to haul the child out of the water.

Sunset at Chenang Beach

Day 7 on August 7, 2016 ~ Food for the Soul

Stepping off the ferry at Kuala Perlis around 2:30 pm, the first thing that caught our eyes was the mosque. It was such a welcoming sight. I chose the area by the window that look out to the sea. It was so calming to pray with the sound of waves breaking.

Day 4 ~ Cherish

This is my day 4 of #100dayselflovejourney.
Just a simple layout to showcase the Geology '84 Reunion.
After 31 years of being apart, it was good to meet with one another.
There were a lot of catching-up to do and most of all, the conversation was more geared towards our children.
Location: Geology Department, Universiti Malaya, Kuala Lumpur

Supplies: Cardstock, Kaisercraft pattern papers, Kaisercraft Die-cuts, Washi Tape

Day 1 ~ Forever Together

I was actually inspired by my Instagram friend, Claudia's 100dayselflovejourney. I decided to embark on this journey myself and I thought of creating a 170 mm x 210 mm mini album. I know this is going to be a real challenge in itself and most of all it is going to be a test of self-endurance, self-discipline and patience. I chose to start with a CAS layout showcasing my loved ones.

This is my Day 1 Self-love Journey. I have no idea where or how the journey will take me to, but I really am going to fit the journeys into this 170x210 mm size. I guess this is the hard part.
Location : Seoul, Korea, April 2015

Supplies: Recycled File for Base, Enogreen Pattern papers, Kaisercraft sentiment, Kaisercraft
Die-cut Border, Typo Wooden Flower, Momoyo Sentiment, Coredinations Cardstock,
Kaisercraft die-cut Butterfly

Thank you for stopping-by and for your lovely comments
