Lihit Lab Teffa Pen Case Review

pen case review

Semalam parcel dari Jepun sampai. Gembira bila benda yang ditunggu-tunggu akhirnya dah dalam genggaman. Memandangkan aku memang suka gila dengan pen, maka aku pun carilah tempat simpan pen yang lebih besar dan boleh simpan barang stationery yang lain. And yeah, to place everything in one place would be much better than carrying multiple items so I decided to get a brand new pen case for myself. 

Teffa pen case ni adalah pilihan hati aku. I was scrolling the @umbooba IG dan tertengok pen case yang dia guna. Terus jatuh cinta dan terus meroyan nak yang tu jugak lol. Proses mencari pun dimulakan tapi hampa sebab pen case ni tak ada jual di Malaysia. Nak cari yang lebih kurang sama pun tak ada. Final choice aku adalah mintak tolong @japaneasyshopper yang belikan. Walaupun postage mahal sebab nak ada tracking number, aku sanggup demi stationery hiks. For those who still don't know this one fact about me, let me tell you that I am a hardcore addict of stationery!

Ini adalah interior Teffa pen case. Saiz benda ni tak besar dan tak kecik. I would say the size is perfect and deserve to be called as portable stationery inventory. Both strap are very secure and tight and it will hold the pens properly. Dijamin tak akan ada pen yang terkeluar dari landasan! Bahagian sebelah kiri lebih sesuai untuk pen yang panjang dan bahagian sebelah kanan pulak sesuai untuk pen yang pendek. Walaupun boleh simpan banyak pen, tak bermaksud kau boleh sumbat semua kat dalam. If you prefer bulky pen case, go ahead then lol. Aku cuma letak pen yang aku guna selalu dan semestinya pen kesayangan.

This is the other side of Teffa pen case. Divider tu aka notebook style pen case lah yang buatkan aku jatuh cinta dengan benda ni. Bila flip terus ada dunia lain selain pen hiks. Bahagian ni pulak aku simpan stickers dan washi tapes. Kalau sebelum ni aku guna pen case jenis macam ni cuma tak ada divider. And it is specifically for pens only. Tak best sebab terpaksa simpan stickers and washi tapes tempat lain. Tapi dengan adanya magik si Teffa ni, aku boleh sumbat semua kat situ. Dan semestinya aku rasa best gila hihi. All the pockets are tight enough. Tiga poket yang sebelah kiri tu memang ketat yang amat. A bit difficult to put stuff inside but still worth using. As long as you know how to organise the stuffs, it's not a big deal then! It's stickers and washi...stickers and washi everywhere..

Double zipper memang smooth, Tak ada tersekat-sekat. Aku dapat rasakan yang benda ni akan bertahan lama. Maksudnya tak cepat rosak. Material pun boleh dikatakan superb. Dan kalau tengok balik gambar first, ada dua poket dimana kau boleh letak something kat dalam. But yeah, kertas kecik adalah paling sesuai. Contoh macam sticky notes or post notes tu. Or maybe your business card!

Overall, aku memang fall in love head over heels with this pen case. Gembira dengan Si Teffa ni sebab memenuhi citarasa aku hahaha. And it's portable stationery inventory! Highly reccomended to those who are looking for perfect pen case organiser! Harga satu RM40. Aku beli dua sebab maktiri aku nak jugak untuk dia simpan barang mekap lulz. And I am happy to say that this is the best pen case I ever had kahkahkah. Dulu masa sekolah penselkes tak best! Paling gempak pun guna kotak video tape then tampal macam-macam gambar x'D 

Hope you enjoy reading. Toddles! x

6 Helpful Things on My New Blogger Template

blogger template tutorial
I just changed my new blogger template today yeay! I would say it's a bit tough since I have to revert my current template to the original template and start again from scratch. It's all for the sake of this one add-on which is annoying to do yet useful to use for blogger template. I am a bit clueless when it comes to JavaScript and honestly, it's a real bummer! Struggling hard to tweak the codes, I finally managed to fix them all with the help of knowledge that I gathered from the fellow bloggers. Some of you might have these things on your blog, but for those who don't, it's your chance to optimise your blog to be a little bit SEO friendly!

1. Read More Link

I decided to use this function for the goodness it offers me. Rather than having one long post per page, wouldn't it be much better to have many of them per page? Don't worry about the weight of your web page cause this option will help your site to load faster. And as for my opinion, I am sure it will give a curiosity to readers and encourage them to click through your post easily.

2. Sitemap

I don't really know much about this. It's my first time putting this on my blog and I am quite amazed by the list that looks like a table of content to my blog. You can see it HERE. Based on what I read, it helps to tell Google and other search engines about the organisation of our blog content for easy crawlers and indexing experience. Dalam bahasa melayu pulak, dengan adanya file sitemap ini ia akan memudahkan Google untuk membaca dan meng-explore struktur blog kita untuk tujuan menyenaraikan link-link kita dalam indeks carian Google dengan lebih cepat.

3. Meta Tag Description

This is a snippet or a summary that we need to add on our site too! Search engine will show the summary in search results to let the visitor know a bit and pieces about the page before they click the link. Ada dua iaitu meta tag description untuk blog dan meta tag description for an individual post. I would say the description is the key to more traffic to our blog!

How I Use My Bullet Journal

bullet journal, bullet journal guide

I don't know what has gotten into me that I decide to purchase a new notebook and start a bullet journal. I have been on a super long hiatus from the planner world and I'm happy to say that I am back with a brand new best friend. I would say bullet journal is very effective to organise your life - depend on someone - and I want to show you how I use my bullet journal. Don't miss out the ultimate guide on how to start a bullet journaling too!

bullet journal, paperdorable

This to-die-for notebook is from Paperdorable. My first option is to use Leuchttrum1917 but sadly it is not available in Malaysia. I went high and low looking for something that looks perfect in my eyes and I end up falling head over heels with this Dreams Journal! There is two colours option which is Charcoal Black and Cherry Red - and it costs RM89 only with free shipping within Malaysia. The compact A5 size is just nice and I love everything about this notebook. Even the packaging looks very exclusive! (Beware cause I am actually poisoning you :P)

What is bullet journaling? 

Bullet journal is a very simple and customizable organisation system. There's no limit in bullet journaling as it can be your to-do list, diary, sketchbook, notebook or whatever you wish for - all in one place. It can be decorative or minimalist or just follow your creativity to have a beautiful and functional notebook.

1. Index 

The very first pages of the notebook are reserved for Index. It is mandatory and a must-have page in bullet journaling. Ini adalah untuk kesenangan di kemudian hari. Every time when you use a new page for something, this Index need to be updated! And don't forget to number every new page. It can be fancy as you wish but I make it simple for my own comfort. Make sure to leave 3 to 4 pages for Index writing.

2. Future Log

The second page will be the Future Log where you noted down all the upcoming events, holiday or important dates. It's basically a year at a glance. Since I started the bullet journal in this month, aku cuma letak bulan yang tinggal untuk tahun ni saja. It is not necessary to start from January even I know it's a bit itchy to start from scratch! Please don't follow my layout as I just realized that the space is quite small and will be too occupied if I wanted to add up more notes. Make sure to make it a bit spacey for your own good unless your handwriting is sekecil semut huhu.

3. Collections/Page Ideas

Here's the fun part. Collections are something like a bunch of list of whatever you want to have in your journal. It can be Places to Visit, Gratitude List, Books to Read, Life Goals, Wishlist, Habit Tracker or anything. It's literally all your favourite things! Do take a look at this huge list of collections/page ideas. HERE. 

habit tracker, bullet journal

This is my September habit tracker. I just love doing this so that I can track everything that I do in my daily life. I used to forget when did I start my period of the month, when did I have a migraine etc which is pretty important for me - and of course for you too. For instance, when I was being hospitalised last few days ago, the doctors kept asking me about when does my period occur last month but I was not able to answer them correctly since I couldn't remember the date. So yeah, this is mandatory in your bullet journal. There are many things you can track but that are the only things I come up with. 

weekly spread bullet journal

4.Weekly Spread

Well, this is the main reason to have a bullet journal in the first place. The weekly spread is a page where you will jot down notes or put your to-do list for every day. You can also use the daily spread for daily routine. My preference is weekly spread cause I like to have the overview for the week altogether. Be as decorative as you are when it comes to page layout! Pinterest has lots of ideas to get you inspired!! Minggu ni layout lain, next week layout lain, next next week layout lain. As long as you happy with what you see, then go for it. Rapid logging is the language in which the bullet journal is written. It consists of four components; topic, page numbers, short sentences and bullets/keys. Senang cakap, bila kau nak tulis nota, kau cuma letak ayat pendek dan mudah untuk kau faham saja. Don't make it complicated. 

signifiers, keys, bullet journal

5. Keys

People said the key is everything. Yes, the key is very important in bullet journaling. It is to signify different symbols that represent categories, tasks, events, notes, or etc. You can create something that works for you and is easy to understand. I have this flip-out key card that I stick on the last page of my notebook which is pretty helpful. Human tend to forget lol. 

Bullet journaling is easy when you understand how it works. Once you get it in mind, you won't be confused. Some people will put a Monthly Log after the Future Log but I decide to take them out and not putting it in my bullet journal as I think it works pretty similar to Future Log. Same goes to Keys and Signifier, I used to be confused between these two things. But it has the same function except that Signifier is to emphasise or enlighten certain tasks that are important.

Done reading? Grab your notebook and start bullet journaling now! I hope this post will help and guide you on how to start a bullet journal. I make it simple so it will be easy to understand. But I apologise if I am missing some points here. Toddles! 

Being Hospitalized For The First Time

non-specific abdominal pain

Hi. It's been awhile I didn't update my blog. I've been spending my time watching Korean dramas these past weeks and it's an absolute distraction. I am currently following Cinderella and Four Knights, Jealousy Incarnate, W-Two Worlds and Scarlet Heart Ryeo. Well, happy to say that I am officially being a KDrama addict for the second time :P 

If you happened to read my post HERE, I mentioned that I am on progress to a healthy life. Tapi hari tak selalunya indah. Ku sangkakan badan ku sihat, rupanya tidak. I've been admitted to hospital last Thursday and yes, it was my freaking first time staying overnight at the hospital. Sobs.

The sharp pain!  

It was all started as soon as I woke up on the Thursday morning. Macam biasa bangun pukul lima pagi. Selesai mandi tengah sibuk pakai baju, aku perasan bahagian perut aku sakit. Ingatkan senggugut jadi aku biarkan. I comforted myself telling it just a normal menstrual cramp. Lepas jemur baju, sekali lagi aku perasan yang kesakitan tu dah macam makin menaik. Dari skala 1 ke skala 5. Aku tahan selagi mampu. Dalam pukul enam pagi, tak sampai beberapa minit jejakkan kaki ke dalam kedai, aku cepat-cepat duduk dan terus menangis sebab tak tahan. I told my stepmom and she thought that I had a gastric attack. Dia suruh aku rehat dalam bilik. Here it goes... Another one hour of real torture. Kenapa satu jam? Sebab the only person we could rely to take me to the hospital that day was my only father. Dalam pukul 6 ke 7 pagi memang rutin dia ke pasar untuk beli barang kedai. So I had no option but to endure all the pain. Masa tu kesakitan dah di skala ke 8. It hurts so much that it made you feel like giving up on breathing. No jokes. 

Dalam pukul 7 suku ayah aku datang. We went to the hospital. Dalam perjalanan kena tunggu jammed. Bila dah sampai hospital, even dah pergi ke bahagian emergency, I still need to wait few minutes. Bayangkan 3 jam terpaksa menahan kesakitan. I don't know how to describe the pain but seriously, aku memang tak nak merasa benda tu lagi. Bila dah kena interview dengan doktor, ambil darah dan kena bagi painkiller, mereka suruh aku berehat kat katil yang disediakan which is probably bilik menunggu kot. And guess what, that painkiller didn't work at all. I had to endure the pain for another more hours. Sobs. Dalam 2 3 kali nurse bagi painkiller, the pain won't go. Degillah. Nurse nak bagi lagi takut overdose pulak. Terpaksalah aku follow up untuk xray dan ct scan dalam keadaan separuh mampus tapi acah-acah kuat sebab takut kena marah hahahaaha. 

Since kesakitan tu dekat bahagian abdomen, aku kena 'attend interview' dengan specialist pakar sakit puan dan buat abdominal ct scan. Mereka nak cek kalau sakit tu berpunca dari rahim, senggugut atau yang berkaitan. But syukur alhamdulillah tak ada. Dah settle semua, bermulalah kehidupan sementara aku sebagai pesakit di hospital. Kena puasa. Berbotol jugak IV drip kena masuk dalam badan. Nurse pun akan cek blood pressure, temperature etc around 2 to 3 hours kot. Tak pasti sebab aku banyak tidur daripada socialize dengan jiran sebelah or jiran depan katil. Huhuhu. 

appendix, abdominal pain

I used to feel curious about how would it feel to have the fluids going through the veins eh? Now betul-betul dah merasa. Sengsara. It hurts a lot. Bila nurse masukkan painkiller dalam tube tu, phew memang terasa beb. Part paling tak boleh blah bila terpaksa showoff perut dengan doktor sekalian hahhaha. Bukan doktor perempuan, doktor lelaki pun ada. Bukan sorang, tapi sekumpulan doktor. They usually will visit the patients one by one kan, and they will ask our keadaan macam mana. Malu tapi terpaksa. Phew. I had to stay overnight sebab I need to be under their observation. Tapi alhamdullilah, lepas pukul 2 petang hari Khamis tu jugak semua sakit tu hilang. Tiap kali doktor-doktor melawat katil dan tanya kalau aku ada rasa sakit atau tak, aku akan jawab tak sebab memang dah tak ada. Next morning pukul 4 pagi lagi nurse dah bagi painkiller. Then aku tertidur lagi. Dalam pukul 5 pagi kena gerak oleh doktor hensem. Rupanya nak ambik darah. I almost cursed to be honest. Orang baru bangun tidur terus kena ambik darah ahhaha. Awal lagi kot.... Huhuhu.. Pasrah jelah.. Nak marah tak dapat pulak :P 

Alhamdulillah sekali lagi, pukul 3 petang hari Jumaat (9/9) aku dah boleh balik. Hmm penyakit aku? Dalam medical report doctor stated as non-specific abdominal pain saja. Nak cakap apendiks tapi bukan. Mungkin radang biasa agaknya. But I really hope it is nothing worst. Tak sanggup rasanya nak duduk kat hospital lama-lama. Tapi memandangkan sekarang aku dah ada rekod masuk hospital, memang takut jugaklah if sakit tu datang balik. Dan sekarang bila rasa sakit perut sikit je aku dah paranoid. Macam traumatized pulak dengan rasa sakit tu. Seram.

I'm really happy with all the doctors and nurses yang jaga aku masa kat hospital. They were all kind! Yang nurse kebanyakkannya pelajar praktikal but they did a great job. <3 

What I learned from my own experience, sakit tu bila-bila boleh datang tak kiralah kau sihat atau tak, kau kurus atau gemuk etc. Ada seorang hamba allah ni cakap "eh gemuk pun boleh kena apendiks eh?" Whatthefuuuu. Belum rasa belum tau. Dah rasa jangan nangis pulak. Tsk. Teruk. Gurauan yang menyakitkan hati hahaha. Gemuk pun comel apa hahaha. Last but not least, I hope all of us will have a healthy life!!
