Aidiladha 2017 - A blessing

"It is only with true love and compassion that we can begin to mend what is broken in the world. It is these two blessed things that can begin to heal all broken hearts" - Steve Maraboli

In the name of Allah, the Beneficient, the Most Merciful.

How was your Aidiladha? Mine was such a splendid, blessed affair.

Aracare had 1 cow and 1 sheep for qurban this year for its maiden Qurban initiative. Let's see the pictures shall we?

Overall it was a success, with 100 over packs distributed to the poor, refugees, single moms and low income families. 

Airiel followed me throughout the process and I must say I am just so overwhelmed with it. It made me realise the sacrifice another living being has to make so I can eat. Sesungguhnya sgt menginsafkan. So ajar Airiel utk berjimat, jgn membazir makanan. An animal had to die so we can eat. He seems to understand.

Follow aracare at its FB page or Instagram to see how we try to make a change, one life at a time! Just type in Aracare Ngo! 

Much love from Airiel and I.

Peace and love to everyone.

Until next time.

Fernweh 2017 - Bayou Lagoon Resort

"My personal hobbies are reading, listening to music, and silence" - Edith Sitwell

In the name of Allah, the Beneficient, the Most Merciful.

Hello everyone. Just some updates on a recent short vaccay with Airiel. I went to Bayou Lagoon Resort in Melaka. 

It was the cheapest on so I made a booking and off we went. Let me show you the pics:-

Nice spacious lobby with high ceilings

The room was nice and spacious. It has a kitchenette. Airiel and I bunked here.

The park was not bad and kept Airiel entertained. Of course Mama was forced to go up slides like 50 times. Huarghhh.

The breakfast was also not bad. Loved the porridge. 

Check out their deals. All deals include waterpark tickets and breakfast. There are 1,2,3 bedroom apartments too, so its perfect for families.

A worthwhile trip. Airiel is already pestering me for the next one. Hmmmnnn where should I take him? Any suggestions? Drop me a line. 

Much love from Airiel and I.

Peace and love to everyone.

"And forget not that the earth delights to feel your bare feet and the winds long to play with your hair..." - Khalil Gibran

In the name of Allah, the Beneficient, the Almighty.

Hello readers. What a crazy last week and this week has been for me. I am just excited to share with you guys this thing I have been using.

Yes this ellips thingy! Have been using it for a month now and my hair is just feels so much better! 

Less frizz, shiny and most importantly less hairfall which is a huge issue for scarf wearers like me.

Would recommed this to all you scarfies out the hehe (apa barang term hijabista hijabista ni? I use scarfies instead hahaha 🤣😂).

I am expecting to be able to blog more as I have managed to go get this nifty app on my phone which allows me to type posts straight from my phone. So be prepared to be bombarded selalu.

That's it for now as sleep is calling.

Much love from Airiel and I.

Peace and love to everyone.

The Calm in Chaos

"It's a cruel and random world, but the chaos is all beautiful..." ~ Hiromu Arakawa

In the name of Allah the Beneficent, the Almighty.

Hello readers. A reader was asking for updates in so far my activities are concerned.

Well, I have been busy. How does one recover from adversity? My advice? Keep yourself busy. Sadness will invade you, but only intermittently.

So what am I up to these days?

Nenda has retired and so the family has been supporting her in her Tempoyak Masak business. Follow the team and its journey on the FB page and IG. She has so many projects in store when it comes to food and traditional recipes which she hopes to share. I find it just so inspiring to see her so spirited at such an age!

Apart from that, I am also heavily involved in the family's NGO. AraCare. Follow us on FB and IG to find out what we are trying to do to help and make a change, no matter how small!

AraCare is now running its Kurban project. Come and support us and book a portion!

Cute la poster ni alahai hahaha.

Call the number for inquiries and booking.

So that is basically what I am up to these days. There is so much activity and it's chaos around the house but I would not have it any other way!

Much love from Airiel and I.

Peace and love to everyone.

Updates on Missha Time Revolution First Treatment Essence - 7 months on

"Beauty is only skin deep, but ugly goes clean to the bone..." - Dorothy Parker

In the name of Allah, the Beneficient, the Most Merciful.

Hi everyone. 

My last post on the start of my use of Missha and moving away from SKII was in December last year. You can read about it here.

7 months on and I still have about 1/10 of the bottle left. So i am thinking each bottle with optimum usage would last for about 9-10 months.

What do I think of it? An absolute cheaper and works just as well dupe for SKII essence!

I am actually on to my 2nd bottle. Tehee

Teheee selfie!!

There you go! Skin is supple, smooth, and the colour of my skin is simply more even toned. I.LOVE.IT

 What remains unbeatable is of course the price. I love the fact that it costs less than half of what a bottle of SKII essence would cost currently.

So for those who is looking for an SKII essence dupe, I highly recommend this!

Much love from Airiel and I.

Peace and love to everyone.

Hilton Hotel, Kuching

"I suspected that what happens in hotel rooms rarely lasts outside of them. I suspected that when something was a beginning and an ending at the same time, that meant it could only exist in the present..." ~ Rachel Cohn

In the name of Allah, the Beneficient, the Almighty.

Time for me to update you guys on my recent working trip to Kuching.

I stayed at the Hilton hotel. I bought some vouchers and became part of their luxury thingymajig programme for the year and so far it has been very useful.

So back to the room.

I was given a room with a view to the river and the opposite village. The room had a bathtub and the bed was super comfy!

Everything was top notch. 

If there was one complaint, it was that Hilton does not give complimentary wifi. You either become a member of their group for free (and then you get the wifi) or you have to buy for daily use. Baffling if you ask me in this day and age where complimentary wifi is an expected standard in all hotels. I mean even my fave budget hotel has free wifi in Sg Siput.

Anyway, I bought the vouchers which include hotel discounts, hotel buffet discounts etc and for those who travel often, it is worth it totally! Plus she arranges my bookings and all for me. So it's so convenient.

Email me or pm to get details of the person I bought it from okay? You can buy it from her.

Until the next update. 

Much love from Airiel and I.

Peace and love to everyone.
