It's Been A Year

I can't believe that it's been a year (and four days) ever since I left Canada for good. Time sure flies fast when it comes to anything Canada but not so much when living the reality eh? 😒 Alhamdulillah, I didn't have a hard time to readapt with Malaysia this time around, unlike the first time. I still struggle figuring out my life but it's manageable. However, I do wonder, sometimes, what would happen if I were to make a different decision. You know, those what if questions. I can't help to wonder about it especially after seeing updates from my friends in Canada. Honestly, coming back to Malaysia for good last year was a tough decision for me to make. Ever since my second year in university, all I wanted was to work and live in Canada (and come home someday). I was so close to my dream but decided to make a U-turn because my parents (my mum especially) kept insisting me to come home. Jasper was the place that ignited the Canadian dream in me

My Songs of May 2020

Image
My May was mainly about that warm feeling and fuzziness. I guess it was because we spent a good chunk of May celebrating Ramadan. Also, it was a month that the reality of having no income finally sunk in? I suddenly wanted to buy so many stuff despite having no income. So, I foolishly used my savings to fulfill my worldly desires and now I'm kinda broke γ… γ…  Hospital Playlist Cast - With My Tears (λ‚΄ 눈물 λͺ¨μ•„) The official OST for this song is sung by Whee In of Mamamoo but as always, I love the drama version more. I just love the rawness of Jo Jung Seok's voice. Brought me to tears when I first heard the drama version. Still make me want to cry whenever I listen to this rendition. A little bit TMI but this song actually reminds me of my struggle and hardships back in Canada. I remember that I was crying profusely at a certain point of my life and this song (Jung Seung Hwan's version) was playing in the background.

I'm starting a new segment on this blog; 5 Quotes A Book to force myself to start reading again. I was thinking to write book reviews initially but then I'm not good at writing reviews, So, 5 Quotes A Book , it is. Hopefully the segment will be here to stay because it will be nice to see and to know that I actually spend my valuable time to do other things than watching Korean dramas. lol πŸ˜› Devangel by Riha J Title: Devangel Author: Riha J Publisher: Peanutzin Number of Pages: 140 "Of this man I call Father, A person who is very much like home.

Kinder Bueno Ice Cream Cone

Kinder Bueno Ice Cream Cone March 12, 2020 6:30 PM Buying this Kinder Bueno Ice Cream Cone is definitely one of the hardest decisions that I have ever made ever since I came back to Malaysia. A MYR 9.90 ice cream cone?!! That's quite steep! But I guess I wanted to try it so bad because it carries Kinder Bueno name. The verdict? I'm obsessed with Kinder Bueno, so much so that the URL for my first blog has Kinder Bueno in it but I didn't feel the same with this Kinder Bueno Ice Cream Cone. It was just not up to my taste. Too chocolaty, if it makes sense to you? 

Kit Kat Bites White Chocolate

Kit Kat Bites White Chocolate March 12, 2020 6:30 PM I still remember how happy and delighted I was when I first saw this Kit Kat Bites White Chocolate at the Jaya Grocer, klia2. It brings back memories of when I decided to brace the cold winter and walked for about 40 minutes to the nearest convenience store at 5 AM in the middle of winter, just because I was craving something sweet (white chocolate, particularly). That decision was one of the best decisions that I made in that week because Nestle bars were on sale that day; 4 bars for CAD 5. More bang for my bucks eh :)

Hennaline Organic Hair Henna Paste Raya Rosey Edition

Hennaline Organic Hair Henna Paste Raya Rosey Edition  | That's quite a mouthful, no? I'll just call it Rasa Rosey from now on, okay? Short and sweet πŸ˜† I've been hennaing my hair quite consistently since the past 7 years. I started hennaing my hair due to few hair problems namely chronic hair fall, dry and damaged hair that I started to experience back in Canada. I still have no idea what made my hair experienced those problems. I believe major changes in weather contributed to those problems along with my inability to find the right hair products for my hair. A little bit TMI but I find it hard to find any products (hair care, skincare, body care) that are suitable with my hair, skin, and body when I was in Canada. Thank god, I'm now longer lived at the other end of the world? 😝 Anyway, I've been using this one henna product for the past 7 years (let's call it the L brand) but decided to give another brand (i.e Hennaline Raya Rosey) a chance to

Did I Make Money from My Blog?

Did I make money from my blog? | This is one of the frequently asked questions that I get whenever people know that I have a blog. Most of the times I leave the answer up to one's imagination. After all, it seems quite rude for someone to ask that question to me. But, I'll be honest and real, for once. I did not make money from my blog.  Or to be exact, I have yet to make real  money from my blog. I earned more money through tipping system than blogging 😏 As some of you may know, there are a lot of ways for bloggers to monetize their content and blog; namely Google Adsense; affiliate marketing; advertorials; sponsored posts; and paid reviews to name a few. I, however, only have/use Google Adsense on my blog. For a picisan blogger like me, earning money through Google Adsense is truly hard. My blog has a small readership and does not have much traffic to begin with. If I'm lucky, I earn about USD 1/day. If I'm not lucky, I earn USD
