Throwback to My Asian Engagament on 12.12.12 – Before I Was A Hijabi

I was cleaning the house and saw old photos of myself… During my engagement on 12.12.12.

Brought back good memories and the times when I was slimmer and watching my diet.

Goodness how times have changed and my size too hahaha.

These few days I have cut down on my food intake and am gonna invest on an exercise machine soon. Thank God fasting month is coming back soon.

The Most Naturale Immune Booster

When I took Grab, I encountered many people whom I think could be Doctors on the sidelines. HAHA

They suggested to me a mixture of the following to up my immune system:

1) Honey

2) Lemon

3) Warm Water

Have it every morning and evening.

I stored it in the fridge as such.

Because SG is soooo hot, I opted for the Iced version but warm is supposedly the best.


Well, thanks a million to the caring Grab drivers for their advices. I had bad case of flu and cough so will continuously consume this.

Furthermore lemons are also good for detoxing.


How I Discipline My Daughter


Rule Number 1 – Don’t have too many forms of disciplining a child.

These are the top 3 things that I do:

1) Naughty Corner. I don’t shout but if she starts shouting and hitting her things as a form of anger. I will first call her name. Next, I will ask her to stand at the naughty and explain why I asked her to go there. My daughter listens… After 5 minutes, I ask her are you ready to apologize for your actions? If she is not ready, she won’t come. If she does not come, I remind her that I don’t shout so why must she shout? After thinking, she will come to me and say ‘Sorry’. AWW my heart melts afterwards… And I give her a big hug.

2) I will put her body on top of my laps and ask her to look me in the eyes. I will remind her that I am the one who prepares her food, bathes her, gives her medication and love her. Afterwards, I will ask, why did you hit your mom then? I have loved you fully and taken care of you so why did you behave that way? And then, I will pretend to be sad and say that it hurts. After 5 minutes, she apologizes.

3) If the above does not work, I leave her alone. I let her shout all she wants and leave her in the room. 5 minutes after, I come back and she has stopped shouting. Then, I will make a remark and say, ‘See you get nothing from shouting my dear’.

Yes and it has worked so far for me. She can be cheeky but she listens to us, her parents. I hug and give her plenty of kisses everyday when she is a good girl. Love her fully so that when you are angry with her actions, she will notice the difference.


Qualifications VS Skills

I was pondering upon this… If you were the boss of a company, would you hire someone who has the skills and probably not the qualification? OR would you just take a degree holder who has never worked outside before?

Recently, there is someone who has been selected for a Manager position but I heard has not worked in a company before and is a newbie.

I, on the other hand, have no degree but is a diploma holder. I have had my fair share of work experiences and skills. I have worked part time ever since my polytechnic days.

I am just counting down the days till my contract ends. I don’t mind jumping on the wagon and exploring this opportunity if given.

So, as a boss, who would YOU pick?

I can’t afford a degree as family comes first but I can handle many tasks at hand and am a fast-learner.



Money is the Root of All Evil But Yet, It Is Needed In Our Everyday Lives

Hi, today I have accumulated in my head the experiences I hear from people I know or strangers I meet. Money is needed yes, but it can… bring out the evil in a person. Sigh…


Well, here’s just to list some:

1) Passing On

When a person pass away, they just want to rest in peace but wait a minute guys, the people who are living are fighting over the money. O m g, even though we are desperate for cash, please do remember it is the money belonging to the deceased. Yeah you might get the money but the consequence of not being the chosen one by the deceased can come in many forms. For me, money is tempting but it is not tempting enough to not care for the deceased. The deceased wants your prayers not you guys fighting the hell out for money!

2) Siblings

Hey, you pay for this! Hey, no you pay! All the married couples in the family starts pointing fingers. And the one who makes the most noise is the one who rarely visits. Wow, astonishing probably never even gave monthly cash! And the one who makes the most noise is also the one who earns a whole lot more. Interesting… How money brings out our true character? Oh come on let’s all share despite me being the one with more money, says the noisy one. Based on my friend’s experience…

3) The Stingiest Richest Person

The richer you are, the more of a stingy person you are. I know of people who are loaded but super duper stingy. No family commitment etc but are so calculative. No wonder you are rich… Your pay is probably 5k and above per month. Goodness! To buy food, they dig their piggy bank people… for coins!!!

4) Always Not Enough

I had a friend commented the other time on seeing $100,000. She was like WOW I wish. Probably one of the stingies who use only coins to pay. And probably has the smallest social circle. I tell you something those who save 100k probably wished they had million. It is always not enough…

But people always forget that you can’t bring money to your grave. You can pass on anytime and if you are loaded when you passed on, the person you got your money is probably spending the money off.


Aww… money angel.

Human WiFi

I find that the human connection is like a WiFi. You turn on the wireless to look for the best WiFi but sometimes, you do get free WiFi where people are open to have friendships or connections with you.


But, at times, you need a password to get the connection. In the human world, the password is the wall the person has set to not let people in easily. These kind of people takes time to get connected to but when you do get connected, the bond is stronger than those who are the free WiFi.

However, the best is still the home internet connection. It is the strongest and the most readily available.
