Assalamu'alaikum. I was really quiet all the way to PJ court today unlike most days when I travelled with my staffs. Didn't even have the mood nor the mental strength to create small talks. Mondays seldom do that to me, or any other days for that matter. I had meant to re-do my hijab once arrived at the destination but decided against it anyways. I was more than tired. May be the water retention syndrom, yeah, may be so. However, thank God I didn't lose what mattered most in my work - sanity. I was composed just as much it was needed to get the application heard and granted, thanks to my cooperative opponent. And thanks to Allah fore and foremost!
I managed to smile afterwards, though. Could have been much happier looking, nonetheless. But heck, some days are just bad per se! ^_^
Would love to wear the same dress again tomorrow, actually. Let's see how my mood sets in tomorrow morning, shall we?
Assalamu'alaikum. I grew up seeing my late dad loving boss jackets so much that I have somewhat fallen into the same preference. The good thing is that I can waive the heat from actually wearing blazers to work, especially when the occasions require me to layer my outfits with a robe. And the monochrome world suddenly makes more sense to me. ^_^
Here's my intepretation of Muslimah Boss Jackets:
I however find it much more practical to mix and match the jackets with separate skirts, rather than coming up with one suit like my late dad used to do, thanks to my gender's privilege - not to say it was wrong, of course. I feel so cozy each time I wear this kind of style, you see, knowing fully well that he would love it so very dearly himself. Yeah, I missed him so much!
Assalamu'alaikum. Last night I went out for a private dinner at Jalan Yap Kwan Seng and proceeded to Bukit Bintang to kill time, so to speak. Having parked our car behind the Paparich restaurant, we joined the crowd to catch a group of night buskers in front of the YTL Building. The group was quite good, I must say. And the guitarists turned out to be one from a group called 'Laksamana' and another from 'Kris'. It broke my heart to see them there actually, but I was somewhat proud of their determination and humbleness at the same time. Yeah, mixed feeling it was. I wish I were rich to hand over some handsome cheque to them, you know what I mean? It's a hard life but hey, life is hard!
Seniman Menangis Siapa Yang Tahu...
What a good show it was, really. I couldn't stay long, though. The pain was too much to bear.
I wish them all the best in their future undertakings..
Assalamu'alaikum. Hi there, ladies (and gents, if any). Juma'ah Barakah to all of you. Pardon the caption, nothing more than a phrase that came across my mind while uploading some pictures in the IG beforehand.
You know, I'm a strong believer in good parenting knowledge if not skills. Here's a self-explanatory picture collage that's worth sharing. Nobody ever told me that I had a nice smile so I never ever smiled back then. All I got to know was how smart I was, yes but never anything positive about the way I looked. And to make it worse, I got this forever comparison and contrast thingy with my closest cousin, which was detrimental to both of us. Only to her was the lack of confidence in terms of brain-wise. I guess that explained my interest in joining peers counseling club the moment I set foot in the Uni. I wanted to understand myself and unwind the unexplainable sorrow deep in my soul, which turned out to be a wise decision of a young me.
I learned a great deal about the power of self acceptance and acknowlegment and the beauty of spreading them to those around me. I learned that I could be really happy to let others accept and acknowledge their own individual beauties within themselves. That had led me to pursuing into parenting knowledge and skills almost immediately, knowing that I wouldn't want not to give the best childhood within my means to my unborn children.
So, ladies, let us equip ourselves with great imaan and knowledge so that together we could raise great caliphs in the name of Allah swt.
