Tokyo Bay Skyline

Let’s just say, I was lucky that by chance, my husband and his team got rooms at Hilt0n Tokyo Odaiba for their three weeks stay in Tokyo. A bit surprised because initially I had thought he would stay somewhere in central with all the hustle and bustle that characterise Tokyo. As we always stayed in Shinjuku every time we had

N A R A & K O B E

[28 January, 2017] Second instalment of our Japan Trip series. I’ve decided to post one or two cities in a post instead of writing a usual travel journal. I know people getting tired with seeing everyone holidaying in Japan these past few years ūüėÄ , and for us, since it was our fourth Japan trip and we revisited a couple

on a race

I remember those days, not so long ago, where I¬†could miss obligatory prayers without much guilt. Countless dzuhur and maghrib prayers had been neglected, usually during weekend. Also, I remember at time where I used to shamefully approve my own self to do jama’ shalat ( combined two obligatory prayers in a time) very so often, and yes before you

THE SNOWY DAY

[ 24 January, 2017] First instalment of 2017 Japan Trip series. Let me start with telling you that this was my first time to experience this much of snow. And as any first experience is supposed to be, it was truly memorable. It was magical. Well, I was a bit worried at first because I went solo for a day

Have you ever felt your life was too good that you kept wondering what had you done to deserve such blessings? I have. And the feeling had been a trigger for what I call as a change of heart.  Last year, to me, my life was brilliant and good things kept being thrown on my lap and dreams kept coming

U P D A T E

I have been doing major cleaning on my social media accounts these past months. More precisely, deleting MANY photos and unfollowing some useless instagram accounts. The easiest is my Facebook account as it’s been so so many years I’ve¬†only used the platform to connect with groups of friends and to share useful articles. I had had it secured with maximum

Papa

Innalillahi wa inna ilaihi rojiun. Nine¬†days after he passed away, it still feels surreal. There’re still some moments when reality has hit me hard and I’ve realised he’s gone forever. He was 65. His health had been deteriorating for the last one year. Moreover after my brother’s wedding early this year. Did I mention on previous post that my brother

SHANGHAI

Shanghai. The city that had never been on my dream destination¬†list. Even though I am half chinese,¬†the idea of having a vacation on the land of the mainlanders had never crossed my mind. I’d thought if they could behave in such obnoxious manner in foreign lands, how would their attitude be in their homeland? Turned out, I had been quite¬†prejudice.
