Assalamu'alaikum. It's Fajr here in Malaysia, dear friends. A very good morning to you, then. Just a quick post at my end this time. Still on Ne Me Quitte Pass, though. The song itself is epic, of course, but wait till you understand the lyrics. Hands down, really. Whatever tragedy that moved a living soul to compose such powerful song and heart breaking lyrics must have been huge, man!
Assalamu'alaikum. Life is full with codes that you might hate but can't live without anyways, one of which is called (working) Dress Code. I don't hate my working dress code, don't get me wrong. It's just that monochrome can be so boring for those who prefer colorful outfits like I do. There are some points of time that I would choose either a white or black blouse to be paired with a black skirt. Sometimes I would rather wear a black and white baju kurung or plain black abaya/dress. So when I can put some colors on, I really do it with a blunt vengeance, if you know what I mean.
There's even a friend of mine who has got tired of wearing blouses and skirts that she has opted for one-piece black dress, be it plain or with prints. Can't blame her, for I truly know what she's suffered from in the first place. So together we splash some bright colors when it comes to handbags, purses or even handbag organizers. And she has gone a little further by ensuring that even the purse and handbag organizers would match the color of her handbag of the day! Heheh. As for me, I can't afford to do that coz I'm a forgetful freak that I keep losing this and that if I keep changing purse and handbag organizers. So, as of now I have maintained the inner accesories/essentials no matter which handbag I carry each day.
It's a matter of organizing your mood, simply put. Yeah, my word of the year - organizing. Thanks anyway for dropping by. Take care and Assalamu'alaikum.
Assalamu'alaikum. Dear friends, how's your weekend so far? I hope you guys are in the pink of health, Insya Allah. Today I'm gonna share with you my organizing project that has yet to be fully accomplished. It's like a non-stop and never ending marathon, really. It's all my own doings, so I can't complain to myself, now can I?
1- On The Top of The Closet
I mean, it's a good thing we have any available space to utilize, so why must we ignore our closet top then? I decided to store my clutches that I seldom use anyways inside a cute multi-purpose stool and some travel kits that my other half would always wanna grab for outstations inside another box next to it. Those two identical boxes are used to keep my monthly best friends for menstruation and the fact that they are transparent would gimme instant alarm when to refill should they show any shortage of supplies. While the clearer and bigger box at their back is used to keep my additional facial cottons.
Come to think of it, I would later laminate the not so smooth plywood with some pretty lace or anything I could think of. Meantime, I'd be just happy with how things look now and the fact that they are much higher than eye-level is an added bonus.
2- Declutter Those Bottles, please..
Do you notice that most available spaces in the kitchen cabinet are causing a big mess when we tend to throw everything at one place? Well, that's why we need to use baskets to declutter those endless bottles or things alike.
3- Stacking Things Up For Tiny Little Space
I guess everybody loves to see things before their eyes, literally in obvious display but often than not space does become a factor. Having this in mind, I decided to stack things up using a tray divider that I got from Daiso for better biscuits, instant noodles and 'keropok keping' storage. In case you don't know, Terengganuans can't live without 'keropok keping' more than 2 weeks. LOL.
4- Fridge Organization
When your fridge is in good ordeal, your life will become less stressful. Here's how I organize mine:
5- Portable Trolley In The Kitchen
I initially wanted to get myself a trolley from Ikea but decided to just redeem my points at Cosway and brought home a much cheaper portable trolley instead. This way those essential things won't go out of stock without me noticing.
6- Budget Toileteries Organization
All my organization by far is budget friendly, not just the toileteries actually. And again, the stacking game is obvious.
I feel so much relieved now that everything urgent has been duly organized. There are still rooms for improvement and I will keep upgrading my amateur skills from time to time. May you benefit from this post, Insya Allah. Take care and Assalamu'alaikum.
Assalamu'alaikum. I was early for hot latte at Starbucks today, even the workers there smiled at me knowingly. When asked, I simply said that I was expecting someone for a meeting. I actually fell asleep for a few seconds I guess, when my phone rang ever so loudly. Thank God I hadn't forgotten not to leave it silent, or else I would have just dozed off like there's no tomorrow.
Then after that person left, I still took my sweet time over the remainder of my lovely latte, which was cold already. When I was about to leave, there was one killer song on the surround sound system that kept me afloat. It was Ne Me Quitte Pas (Don't Leave Me) by Nina Simone. And I was well, carried away.
Yeah, who loves to be left by loved ones, huh?
Will always be around for you, though. Take care now.. Bye. Assalamu'alaikum.
Assalamu'alaikum. Last week I came across a post in the FB about using a half sliced lime with cloves on top to fight mosquitos at home but I didn't really get myself to dwell on it that much, though the thought was rather intriguing. But when my other half popped that out last night, I was all for it. I mean, why not? But since we didn't have limes left at home, I used lemon instead and call me lunatic, it worked instantly and I am not even exaggerating! For a house so madly full with mosquitos despite whatsoever repellents used all this while, the very fact that any method as simple as lemon-cloves thingy did actually work (instantly!) was quite a mouth gaping, really. I have yet to experiment as to how long a slice would give the same impact, so bear with me please. Meantime, how about giving it a shot some time soonest? You have nothing to lose and everything to gain, right? ^_^
That's it for now. Take care and enjoy your weekend ahead! Assalamu'alaikum.
