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.

Orly's Wudhu' Friendly and Halal Nail Polish!

"You can tell a lot from a person's nails. When life starts to unravel, they're among the first to go..."
 ~ Ian McEwan

Hello readers,

Since I have time I might as well share with you guys this nail polish that I am so excited about.

Previously, we the wudhu' conscious girls only had the option of Inglot breathable nail polish for nails. I found it to be tedious a bit when it comes to Inglot and having it applied at nail salons when I do my nails because  the salon will try to put on the base coat and the top coat, which is not wudhu' friendly, so in the end tak sah pun sembahyang sebab top coat and base coat lain dari nail polish tu.

Which is why I was super excited bila keluar Orly's nail polish ni sbb it is a 3 in 1. Includes base and top coat as well and is wudhu' friendly and halal too!


See? This is my colour of choice, Nude. Base coat and Top Coat is the treatment part la kan. 


I absolutely love how the colour looks on my nails! Please ignore uber ugly feet.

Now, for those who would like to read up on the nail polish, see links below. It's taken the west by storm!!!:-

4. http://www.huffingtonpost.ca/2017/06/07/halal-nail-polish_n_16987088.html

The cons? Well, the colour options are limited right now, unlike Inglot which has a whole variety of colours. 

Right now you can find these nail polishes at Sasa. They cost around RM69 I think, which I find uber expensive sbb on the orly website it costs like 9 USD only. Like seriously? So I am looking for online options jugak for orders. 

Give this a try girls! 

Much love from Airiel and I. 

Peace and love to everyone!
