Book Review | The Language of Flowers by Vanessa Diffenbaugh

Image
I just finished reading another book by this month. It's the second one, guys! I admit that I am a slow reader. I keep buying the new books and just put them on the bookshelf; waiting to be read. Till one day I realised that I really need to read all of them before buying the new one. Ada ke yang macam aku? Beli tapi tak baca. It's a fact that I adore books more than everything! *sniff sniff*
It was hard for me to understand the stories because the author flips between 18 years old Victoria and her childhood. But it gets interesting once you have immersed yourself in the story. 
Victoria dibesarkan di rumah kebajikan sejak kecil. Mempunyai personaliti yang tidak sukakan orang dan lebih suka menyendiri. Tiap kali di hantar untuk tinggal bersama keluarga angkat, dia akan sengaja berperilaku nakal yang amat supaya keluarga angkat akan menghantarnya semula ke rumah kebajikan. Pada satu hari, dia di hantar untuk tinggal bersama Elizabeth; seorang yang sangat penyayang dan memang ik…

Test Your English Level

Image
I am trying hard to find something for my blog but end up taking an English test online. To be honest, my English skill sucks. Even though my mother is an English tutor, but the genius gene doesn't run in my blood. I am writing based on nothing but just following my instinct and with the help from Grammarly. But sometimes with Grammarly, you still have to make choices from the option that is given to you and it's all depend on what you are going to write. Trust me, its's really a great stuff and you can see the review HERE. Despite the difficulty of trying to learn and understand every single thing, I would still say that English is fun and interesting. So here's my result after taking the online exam.
This is from Cambridge English website. I got 19 out of 25 which is in Cambridge English: First (FCE) category. Taken from the website, here is the better explanation of FCE : A Cambridge English: First (FCE) qualification proves you have the language skills to live and…

Move On or Hold On?

Image
Pernah tak korang berada dalam situasi macam ni? Cuma ada dua pilihan, teruskan atau bertahan? Dilemma macam ni paling aku tak suka. Sumpah tak suka. Sebab aku memang tak boleh decide apa-apa. Aku terfikir, kalau aku move on, aku akan curious untuk tahu apa akan terjadi kalau aku follow the flow. Tapi kalau aku hold on pulak, aku takut yang aku akan kecewa. Alahai. Kenapalah susah sangat macam ni. Kalau korang, korang akan pilih mana? Teruskan atau bertahan? :/

8 National Parks in Sarawak

Image
This is definitely one of the reasons to love Sarawak, especially for a nature lover. Apart from the foods, Sarawak offers an incredible beauty of nature. We have the most extensive protected area networks in Malaysia. Based on Sarawak Forestry, the protected area network includes 30 national parks, 4 wildlife sanctuaries and 10 nature reserves. There are only 15 of them that is opened to public which includes national parks, nature reserves and wildlife centers. And in this post, I am going to list 8 of the national parks in Sarawak!

1. Gunung Mulu National Park is famous for its limestone karst formations. Features include enormous caves, vast cave networks, rock pinnacles, cliffs and gorges. The 52,864-ha park contains seventeen vegetation zones, exhibiting some 3,500 species of vascular plants. Its palm species are exceptionally rich, with 109 species in twenty genera noted. The park is dominated by Gunung Mulu, a 2,377 m-high sandstone pinnacle. At least 295 km of explored caves …

Nature-Inspired Color Palettes

Image
I do this just for fun! I was stumbled across one article this morning about a colour palette taken from famous movies and I simply love to see the colours, honestly. You can see it HERE. Another colour palette that I found is a nature-inspired and you can check it out HERE. It looks pretty beautiful is it? I decided to make them too with my own photographs. I don't really have much nature photos but here are my own nature-inspired colour palettes! 





The colours seems to be really soothing, though. I would love to make a colour palette from other photographs too. Please be alert that I don't own the idea. I just remake it on my own photos cause I find it's interesting and really cool actually :D I read somewhere that the numbers of colours that exist around the world is infinity. If you happens to live in a black and white world, it's time for you to bring some happiness in your life through colours!

Free Supercool Writing Tool

Image
Have you ever wanted to write in English but not confident enough with your words? I admit that I am not good in English either but since I love the language so much, I keep trying my best regardless how many grammar errors they are in my writing. I know that some people tend to lose their ideas or have a limitation of ideas when writing in English. That happens to me a lot. We tried to find words to describe something but as we realise that our knowledge in that second language ain't wide enough, we lost interest in using different language. 
But hey, I want to introduce this one writing tool that can help you with your English writing. It's a true grammar nazi! Well, not that grammar nazi that keeps bashing your typo in social media :P



I have been using this over the past weeks and I would say this is seriously a cool writing tool. It helps me to fix my spelling, check my grammar error, doing the proofreading, detect any plagiarism and even helps me to fix the confused word…

Review | Filofax Original Personal Organizer

Image
As someone who is really into a stationery stuff and a notebook, I am feeling extremely happy to get my new planner which I have long for all the time. I was actually in a long hiatus from planner world because I realised I had spent too much on stationery lol. I didn't follow any online shops that sell beautiful planners, pens, stickers and washi tapes etc anymore. But you exactly know what your heart wants don't you? It will keep bothering you until you get the thing you desire. That happened to me! After making a hard decision, I finally decide to buy a new planner and promise to myself that that will be a pretty last one. Hopefully! I am actually feeling guilty to myself cause I paid few amount just for planner/organiser lol. 
So this is my new planner! I have mentioned in my previous post here saying that I am waiting for my new Filofax and yes, it is finally with me. I am feeling overjoyed to finally own it yeay! This is a Filofax Original in Pillarbox Red. I would say …
