6 Reasons That Makes Me Love Your Blog

why i love your blog

There are a bunch of blogs over the internet. Ada yang aku suka dan ada yang aku tak suka nak jenguk atas sebab-sebab tertentu. I'm pretty sure you have read the blogging tips about things you shouldn't put in your blog. If there's something in the don't-list you insist on putting in your blog, then it might be one of the reasons why I or maybe another visitors refuse to visit your site. But no worries, though. There will always be a way to improve. 

Your blog is pretty and clean. How your blog looks like is really a big matter to me cause I am the visitor and the reader of your site. Ain't nobody gonna loves a messy, cluttered and less organised website. I know some bloggers dislike minimalist look and it's okay to me if you have a colorful or meriah theme as long as everything in your blog is arranged nicely! Barulah senang hati nak singgah kan? :D 

Your content is interesting. Honestly, I enjoy reading when someone writes about their lifestyle and share their thoughts about something. Some blogs are full of contests and sponsored review which I don't really fancy much. I mean, reviews are acceptable cause you share information and that's pretty good. But when it comes to contests, what else can I say other than "good luck"? I need some intriguing post so that I will read more or thought-provoking content so we can exchange opinions! 

Your site doesn't sing to me. When I do my blog-walking routine, I often have a bunch of tabs open at once. I would be glad if there's no sound coming out. But yeah, kalau tetiba ada lagu memang lah terus gelabah. Kalau setakat instumental boleh ampun lagi. But if not, it just gonna upset me to close all the tabs or to mute my laptop. I will enjoy reading your blog more without any songs! 

I can read your blog post well. I would say you have picked a good choice of font style and the colour scheme if I don't have to squint or rub my eyes when reading your blog post. Kasihanilah aku yang bermata empat ini hahah! Knowing how to divide your blog post into paragraphs and not centering all your text is also gonna make your website looks great and not messy. You have done a good job to your site by making it easy for the readers to read what's on your blog. 

Easy to navigate around your blog. The first thing I will do if I stumbled upon your blog is to look into your about me section. I want to know who's the webmaster of the blog. I want to know what you have in your blog. And only after that I will go through the blog post. If you know how to manage this, then you know you will succeed in fueling up the curiosity of your blog visitor.

Your site doesn't take forever to loading. A light blog is what makes us happy! Don't stuff your site with an unnecessary widget that makes it looks crowded. Plus less widget means less heavy. Put yourself in a reader's point of view and you will know what you will seek for in certain blogs. 

* * * * * * 

I hope this will explain few things about blogging! I apologise if any of my words makes you offended but this is just my own opinion. I know there might be some people who hate my site too but I will try to improve if there's something somewhere wrong with it. Plus I am trying to improve my writing too so that I will have interesting content for my readers! :) 

Well, in order to improve my site, I need you to point it out for me! Tell me if there's something I should add or what kind of content you want me to write or anything you have in mind. Let's build each other up! :)

Korean Dramas Addiction

korean dramas addiction


K-Drama is my only entertainment. Pertama kali terjebak dengan korean drama adalah bila aku tengok cerita Full House. Sejak dari tu tak pernah tak melekat bila tertengok apa-apa preview korean drama. Selalunya korean drama akan ada dalam 16 ke 20 episod. And trust me, bila dah tengok episod pertama tu memang aku akan sambung tengok episod seterusnya sampailah episod terakhir. It will only takes me one night or maybe one night and half day. Kalau korean drama yang still currently airing dekat tv tu, aku tengok dengan penuh kesabaran je bila terpaksa tunggu seminggu untuk episod seterusnya. Tak boleh nak buat apa kan. Now let me share what's my current korean drama watching list and to-be-watch list!

CURRENT WATCH LIST

Moon Lovers : Scarlet Heart Ryeo 

scarlet heart ryeo
I was never into any historical drama. Nampak macam boring. But this drama proves me wrong. Lepas tengok short video dalam facebook, aku terus terjebak nak tengok the rest of the episodes. Blame the curiosity. Video yang aku tengok tu menunjukkan Hae Soo (the main actress) kena transport balik ke zaman dulu-dulu lepas dia lemas. Then terjumpa prince kacak pulak. Dah tu adik-beradik prince pulak semua kacak. Hmm tu antara salah satu sebab kenapa aku melekat dengan drama ni. Hahah! Sekarang tinggal lagi dua final episod yang bakal ditayangkan hari ni dan esok. Tak sabar nak tengok!

Jealousy Incarnate

jealousy incarnate
Yang ni pun tejebak gara-gara video pendek yang dikongsi dalam facebook. Aku suka dengan main actress dia (Gong Hye Jin) sebab tu aku tengok. Hiks. Drama ni tentang Pyo Na Ri (Gong Hye Jin) yang suka gila dengan Lee Hwa Shin (Cho Jeung Seok) tapi cinta dia tak terbalas pun. 3 tahun dia suka kat lelaki tu tapi lelaki tu buat tak endah. Bila best friend Lee Hwa Shin mula rapat dengan Pyo Na Ri, barulah dia terhegeh-hegeh nak jugak dekat perempuan tu. But egois always on top of him. Memang sakit jiwa tengok drama ni. Geram! Tapi drama ni bukan sekadar berkisar tentang cinta tiga segi mereka. Ada jugak terselit kisah lain. I would say this drama is interesting! Trust me, kalau tengok mesti addicted terus! 

The K2 

the K2
Tak terlintas pun nak tengok drama K2 ni sebenarnya. Tengok poster yang dipaparkan dalam website tempat aku tengok korean drama online ni macam tak menarik je. But I give it a try sebab dah tak tahu nak layan cerita apa since masa tu aku baru je habis tengok drama Cinderella and The Four Knights. Surprisingly, this drama is daebak! I immediately fall in love with Ji Chang Wook okay! Comelnya aduii. Part berlawan tu yang buat aku dupdapdupdap hahah! Dalam drama ni dia jadi bodyguard yang paling terer among others. Kalau tengok tak sah tak jatuh cinta okay :P Sila google sinopsis cerita kalau nak tahu K2 ni tentang apa. Another one interesting drama I would say!

TO-BE-WATCH LIST

Healer 

hEALER
The only reason I want to watch this is because of Ji Chang Wook! 
.
Truth to be told, I can't get enough of watching korean dramas. Bagi pendapat aku scene mereka tak terlampau dan melampaui. They looks adorable no matter what they do. Takde nampak annoying, minta puji bagai hahah! Except bila watak jahat yang annoying gila memang aku menyampah lah. But all of them are all cute and adorable!! Nah, I know some of them might be plastic but who cares? Yang penting aku enjoy tengok drama dan watak yang dorang bawak!

Cuma nak selitkan disini, here are the list of korean dramas yang aku dah tengok! 
■ Full House
■ Boys Over Flower
■ You're Beautiful
■ Secret Garden
■ My Girlfriend Is A Gumiho
■ Playful Kiss
■ Personal Taste
■ Sungkyungkwan Scandal
■ My Girl
■ Bread, Loves and Dreams
■ Birth Of Beauty
■ Cheese In The Trap
■ My Sassy Girl
■ Baby-Faced Beauty
■ Mary Stayed Out All Night
■ Wild Romance
■ Sweden Laundry
■ Oh My Venus
■ She Was Pretty
■ Pinocchio
■ Descendant Of The Sun
■ Cinderella And The Four Knights
■ W -Two World
* * * * * *

Rasanya setakat ni tu je. There are more I want to watch! But tak boleh dilayankan sangat sebab its gonna take all my time then. I still need to other stuff jugak wuu. Tapi kalau ikutkan hati memang aku nak layan semua korean drama yang ada! :P

Which korean dramas are your favourite? And do you have any good dramas recommendation for me? :D

Finding The Passion

finding the passion


Dulu masa sekolah rendah kerap kali kena tanya apa cita-cita kita bila dah besar. Dalam report card siap tulis nak jadi doktor, cikgu, bomba dan kebanyakan semua pekerjaan yang ada uniform smart. Tapi bila dah besar, semua cita-cita tak kesampaian. Sekarang aku dah 23 tahun dan masih lagi terkontang-kanting mencuba untuk cari apa yang aku nak buat. Pening. Rasa nak menangis. Betul-betul rasa macam loser bila tak boleh nak recognize bakat dan passion sendiri. 

Lepas habis tingkatan lima, aku sambung belajar dalam bidang seni kulinari. Memang aku minat memasak. Tapi lepas habis tiga bulan praktikal, aku sedar yang aku tak berminat nak bekerja dalam bidang tu. Rupanya aku silap. Minat memasak adalah sekadar hobi. Bukan sesuatu yang aku nak buat sebagai pekerjaan. Plus I never get any support from anyone. Mostly kritikan yang aku dapat semua negatif dan tak membina langsung. Memang out terus. Orang cakap zaman sekarang tak boleh nak memilih kerja. Sekarang aku kerja sambil tolong parents di kedai. Dan sambil tu jugak aku cuba untuk cari apa yang aku betul-betul minat. 

Aku suka belajar banyak benda. Aku sentiasa curious dengan macam-macam dan sebab tu aku rasa sangat susah untuk cari apa passion aku. Lagi bertambah susah bila aku terperangkap kat sini tanpa apa-apa. Aku tahu yang aku perlu keluar dari sini dan cari sambil cuba benda baru yang aku tak pernah buat untuk kenal pasti apa hidden talent aku. Kalau terperuk kat sini tak buat apa memang sampai bila pun tak jumpa kan? I'm in that phase where I don't know what to do in my life!!!

Aku rasa dulu masa kecil kita sepatutnya didedahkan dengan benda ni which is more to talent, passion, ambition and all that related to our future. Bukan tengok siapa lagi pandai, siapa dapat 100 markah dalam ujian etc. Tsk. I'm so pissed off. Not hundred percent blaming that lah. But if I could turn back the time, I would definitely think wisely about this thing! Hari tu ada tengok video dalam Facebook where the kids are being exposed to this thing about pekerjaan for the sake of recognizing their talent and passion. We supposed to do that too!!

My advice to those whom it may concern, pursue your dreams once you know what you want to do in your life. Dan jangan sesekali konfius antara minat sekadar hobi dan minat untuk buat sesusatu benda sebagai pekerjaan. Bagi aku dua benda tu berbeza. There's a quote saying that we need to enjoy our life. It depends on you how you define the quotes. But as for me, it means I have to do something that makes me happy. So yeah, there's no way I'm going to do something I dislike. I don't like being force or forcing myself doing X when the fact that I want to do Z! I say it's okay to be rebellious in order to pursue your own happiness :D

Aku masih lagi perlu cari apa Z ni. Alahai. Korang ada mengalami benda ni ke? Ke aku sorang je yang terkontang-kanting tak tahu nak buat apa dalam hidup? Sobs. 

Inside each and every one of us is one true authentic swing... Somethin' we were born with... Somethin' that's ours and ours alone... Somethin' that can't be taught to ya or learned... Somethin' that got to be remembered. - Bagger Vance


When You Think You Know Everything

when you think you know everything


We tend to judge and make our impression on what we see in front of us. But we never bother to see  or to know about things beyond that. Bercakap tanpa tapisan, tanpa fikir perasaan orang lain memanglah kita yang paling hebat kan? Pernah tak fikir apa sebenarnya disebalik sesuatu tu? Ibarat orang yang penuh senyuman tak semestinya dia gembira. Mungkin dia tengah bersedih ke apa ke. Dan orang yang suka memberi tak semestinya kaya.  Kita ingat kita tahu semua pasal seseorang tapi sebenarnya kita langsung tak tahu apa-apa. Why still bother to say a word? 

That girl you called fat, she's starving herself.

Some people don't know the struggle. Yang mereka tahu cuma menghina dan melabel orang gemuk. Bila orang gemuk berdiet, cuba nak kurangkan berat badan, mulalah lempar kata-kata tak berguna. Bukan nak bagi sokongan. Sejujurnya kalau boleh aku rasa nak sepak je spesies manusia macam tu. Syukur masih ada kesabaran. Nak gemuk memang senang tapi nak kurangkan berat badan punyalah sadis. Being fat is not really a big deal actually as long as we are healthy. But sadly fat seems to be defined as something gross by the society. Kenapa eh? 

That girl you teased for her skin colour, she already had the pain of rejection for marriage.

Tak kisah lah kulit warna apa. Tapi yang aku pasti orang kita memang gilakan kulit putih gebu mulus whatever you name it. Orang putih rilek je berjemur bawah matahari sebab nak tanned skin. Kalau kita kena matahari sikit terus takut hitam. Kalau aku pulak takut matahari sebab tak nak kena migraine huhu. Memang tak dinafikan lah yang kulit putih gebu tu cantik. But do we really need to compare our skin tones with others? Perlu ke ada diskriminasi antara kulit cerah dan kulit gelap? Ah I bet some people have no idea that we are born differently and that we are unique in our own way. Hitam ke putih ke cokelat ke semua cantik. Yang tak cantik tu bila kau mengata orang.

Nampak tak yang kita suka sangat cakap sesukahati tanpa ambik tahu kisah sebenar dan perasaan orang lain? Dua isi penting dekat atas ni aku cilok dari Facebook. Aku sekadar elaborate sahaja. Sekarang nak selitkan kisah aku pulak. It really makes me upset when someone judge me and make fun of me about certain things without knowing the story behind it. Kadang orang memang suka main cakap je. Langsung tak fikir perasaan orang. Sedap je nak singgung perasaan orang. Aku sigong (read:siku) jugak kang!


Me Vs Escalator 

Mesti korang yang baca ni tertanya-tanya kenapa dengan eskalator. Yeah I know its weird. But I do admit that I have a problem with the escalator. Most of people around me, mereka akan ketawa bila tengok aku terkial-kial nak pijak benda alah ni kalau nak turun ke tingkat bawah. Siap cakap aku macam orang tua. Yang pasti mereka tak pernah nak tanya aku KENAPA aku takut nak turun guna escalator. Bukan aku suka-suka kira 1 2 3 bila nak turun. Bukan aku sengaja nak melambatkan dan menyebabkan trafik jam di belakang. Aku takut tinggilah. Tak pernah dengar pasal fobia ke? Berdiri dihujung benda tu rasa macam berdiri di cerun yang curam. Jantung aku memang akan automatik berdegup laju. Tapak tangan dan tapak kaki kalau tak berpeluh memang tak sah. Plus aku memang ada anxiety dan panic attack.  Phew. Its a real struggle ok. Tapi orang tak pernah faham pun. It pissed me off when they mistaken my fears as something stupid.

Me Vs The Scars

I have few visible scars on my wrist. Aku memang tak suka bila orang tegur. Aku lebih prefer mereka tak cakap apa-apa kalau tengok parut tu. But no, most of them will mock me. They know the reason yet they still make fun of it. Yes, I did harm myself before. I gotten myself into depression. Hanya orang yang pernah mengalami depresi je akan faham. And if you are good enough, you would understand even if you never encountered depression. Bukan buat sebab suka-suka. Bukan buat sebab putus cinta. Sorry but it's something personal that I can't write it here. Yang pasti orang tak pernah nak tanya tapi terus buat konklusi sendiri. Dahtu gelak. Beruntungnya hidup kau kalau kau tak pernah lalui benda macam ni. Every each of us has our own battle in life so it's not okay to make fun of others.

I wish I could stop people from judging or mocking or humiliating others. Tak semestinya apa yang kita cakap atau teka pasal seseorang tu adalah betul. Kita cuma nampak luaran. Yang tersimpan dalam hati kita langsung tak tahu. Entah-entah secara tak sengaja kita dah tambah beban dalam hati dia. Disebabkan mulut yang macam puaka tu kita hancurkan hidup seseorang. Tak rasa serba salah? Don't you think we should create an awareness such as #DiamKalauTakdeBendaBaikNakCakap? Lagi bagus daripada terus menerus menyakitkan hati orang kan? Cuba tengok dalam Facebook bahagian komen. Ramai je suka cakap itu ini tanpa hiraukan perasaan orang. Entah tahu atau tidak kisah sebenar pun tetap jugak sibuk nak jadi keyboard warrior. Hmm.

My Favorite Beauty Stuffs

my favourite beauty stuffs


I'm not really the kind of girl who is into beauty stuff. I don't know what's the latest best makeup product, I don't know how to do the makeup contouring and whatever that is related to that. I just suck at this topic for sure. Even 12 years old girl nowadays know how to turn themselves into a goddess! That's pretty much an impressive skill, though. I always struggling in choosing what colours or shades suits my skin best lol. Orang sekarang siap contour bahagian dada dan kaki sebab nak menyerlahkan sesetengah tempat tapi aku nak contour muka pun tak pass lagi. Jangankan contour, nak pasang eyeliner pun kepayahan. Apa pun tak bole hahahah! 

bio essence


It's been awhile I'm using Bio-Essence as my skincare product. I'm pretty sure you ever heard of bedak Tanaka yang pernah femes dulu but I refused to use that product. Cuma pernah guna sekali but then I switch to Bio-Essence which is more trustable. That was actually a reason why I'm using this skincare product hihi! I'm not sure what it does to my face but my sister once told me that my skin gets brighter and she has been wondering why do I have no pimples. It could be because of my hormone as the pimples will only grow when the menstrual days are coming. 

I would say this product does it jobs well and I love it. I super love the serum as it makes my skin softer! I don't have any problems or poor reaction when using this product but I am frustrated that the scar removing  process is slow. I only use cleanser and night cream before. Dan baru sebulan guna day cream and serum. Mungkin sebab tu result a bit slow kot. But whatever it is, this product is worth buying! As long as I have something to protect my skin and it's suitable for me, then it's fine for me! =D

beauty stuff favourite


Now for the makeup stuff, I don't have tons of them and these are so far my favourites and I use them daily. Since I work at the restaurants, I don't do heavy makeup. Yang sedang-sedang aja janji tak nampak pucat! 

Pixy Two Way Cake Compact Powder in Tropical Beige

To be honest, I don't really like using compact powder. Since I don't use foundation or BB cream whatever you name it, bila guna bedak memang kulit muka nampak kering. But this product gives you extra benefits. I will wet the sponge before applying it on my skin so it will be smoother than normal compact powder. Tapi benda ni memang jarang aku guna sebab kemalasan yang amat haha. 

Silkygirl Lash Prism Waterproof Mascara & Maybelline Lash Sensational Mascara 

I love to use them! Sebelum ni aku selalu cakap aku benci guna mascara sebab buat mata aku berat. But Maybelline Lash Sensational Mascara proves me wrong. Even if I put it on, it feels nothing but its there. Silkygirl Lash Prism pulak will increase the volume of the lash konon konon bulu mata kau lebat dan panjang. Cuma satu je aku menyampah bab guna maskara ni. Kalau tak comot tak ada cacat cela memang tak sah! 

Silkygirl Matte Fever Lipcolor Balm & IN2IT Lasting Lipstick Creamy Matte

lipstick
First and second lines are Silkygirl's in Vogue (01) and Classy (07) colour. My daily use is classy which I think is more suitable for my skin tone. Well, aku memang guna warna macam ni je sebab tak konfiden nak guna warna lain. Based on my observation, masa paling best bila guna lipstick ini adalah awal pagi lepas mandi sebelum makan apa-apa. Perfect yang amat lol. Kalau nak tacap lagi lepas makan, I will make sure I clean my lips from any oil residue dulu sebab buruk bila guna lipstick kalau bibir masih berminyak! 

Third and fourth lines are IN2IT'S shades. A bit glitterly kan? But I love the color as well! Bila dah selalu guna yang silkygirl punya, rasa macam tak konfiden nak guna yang berkilat-kilat nih hahah! But it still  my favourite though! 

Naked3 Palette & Silkygirl Perfect Stay Eyeliner

These two things are mandatory for me! I preferred pencil eyeliner compare to liquid eyeliner cause it's much easier. I don't like to do the wing style eyeliner but more to ulzzang style. Mata aku kecik so when I follow that style, it will help untuk menyerlahkan mata aku yang kecik dan sepet ini hahaks. And it's quite a real deal for me to do it walaupun senang je nak buat! Dan bila tengahari dah tak macam ulzzang lagi dah. Disebabkan suasana panas, maka jadilah comot dan macam mata panda huhu! Blh tgk video ni macam mana style yang aku maksudkan! :D



scrub, cream, lotion

Benda ni pulak untuk badan sahaja. I never intended to buy that fresh milk cream but the seller poisoned me with her words that I end up buying it! I will use Sumber Ayu masa mandi dan memang best sebab sambil tu boleh scrub badan. Dah nama pun lulur mandi. Bau pun wangi je. Lepas mandi terus guna jeju aloevera untuk sapu pada badan. I'm pretty sure you guys know the benefits of aloe vera. It has so many goodness and one of them is to moisturize your skin. Selain guna pada badan, aku pun tempek kat muka tiap kali lepas mandi. Buat ala-ala toner since dalam collection Bio Essence aku tak ada toner. Fungsi pun lebih kurang sama. Bila dah kering, aku akan sapu fresh milk cream pulak. Bau pun memang lembut dan tenang je ala-ala bau baby. Hiks. Memang suka lah guna 3 benda ni untuk harian. Kalau tak putih, tak wangi jugak tu memang tak taulah. Nak kena rendam dalam clorox agaknya hahaks! 

To wrap things up, even though I'm not into a beauty stuff, as a woman aku kena juga jaga kecantikan diri aku yedakkk? Walaupun setiap hari aku selekeh, tak bermaksud aku tak teringin nak cantik. I do. Cuma malas je. I'm not willing to spend my time more for makeup. But untuk self care, I will definitely do! Nanti kulit aku merajuk aku pulak yang payah huhuhu. So, benda-benda semua ni lah yang aku guna setiap hari. Tak banyak pun dan harga pun semua affordable! 

What about you? What is your favourite beauty stuffs and your daily skincare and bodycare routine?

7 Things I Want To Change About Myself

fix myself


Life ain't a bed of roses and I think if we want to be able to survive the adversity, we have to make a few change inside us. I believe it will help to lead to a much happier life when we fix our weaknesses. Some of them are too strong that it ruins our life and we supposed to get rid of all the negative vibes to make a clear path of where are we heading. I have figured out few things inside me that I need to change and I hope I could destroy them first before they destroying me and my mind. 

1. Stop Complaining And Be Grateful

I gotta admit that I tend to complain very much about everything around me rather than expressing my gratitude. I get upset when the foods are not tasty. I go crazy when the weather is scorching hot or when it rains. I wish for a bigger house that I could own a spacious bedroom for me alone cause I don't like sharing it with my sisters. I always want more and more that I forgot to be thankful. It finally hits me hard when I see people who're suffering from poverty, realising that they own nothing but a broken shelter, worn shirts and an empty stomach. When I am about to complain something, I shall remind myself that there are people who are less fortunate than me that don't even get a chance to have what I have in my palms.

2. Be Resilient And Bulletproof

I'm pretty sure you are aware of us living surrounded by judgmental society. You will be judged for what you wear, what you do for life, what you eat, what you looks like and everything.  And at the same time, you will be made fun for being yourself. It's funny, isn't it? No matter what we do, being ourselves or faking ourselves, we still gonna be judged by those people who think they are already perfect. I admit that I don't have a perfect figure and some people always body shaming me. I wear basic style tudung bawal almost every day and yeah, I've been labelled as an outdated person. I wonder what is wrong with that and is it a crime for having extra fats in our body and not wearing and up-to-date outfits? Honestly, it hurts to be humiliated. I know the best way is to ignore and I always try my best to not getting involve with those low-minded people. But I can't help myself and you know, words are the most powerful weapon than a knife and it will stab straight to your heart. Hence, I think its time to upgrade my shield and be bulletproof so their harsh words won't affect me anymore. It's a way to happier life, I suppose! 

3. Be Optimist and More Calm

I tend to expect things will be worst when I will probably be okay. I think too much about what's gonna happen next rather than taking the challenges. I spend lots of time imagining something could go wrong if I did this or that. I am a so-called defensive pessimist. To be short, I worried too much about something and it's all negative. I'm afraid I will fall down if I step on an escalator that goes downwards. I'm afraid to enter the elevator thinking that the door will squeeze me. I'm afraid to start a conversation or asking something to strangers thinking that they will ignore or getting upset of me. I'm not that coward but I was born this way and I know I need to change it. Trust me, it happens anytime, anywhere and under any circumstances no matter what. I have anxiety and that's it. It kills me and I have to fight and overcome that in order for me to do things without having any worry, doubt and fear, and just do it. Keep calm, they said! 

4. Stop Using Profanity

Cursing is not a ladylike! Well, don't get me wrong. I am not someone with a bad mouth who swear a lot. I will only curse when I lost my temper but as long as I still have the patience, I won't curse. And I'm not a hot tempered person, of course. It just when I feel agitated for not being able doing something I want to do. I will end up sobbing and cursing and have a mental breakdown lol. I sit quietly and ignore people when I am mad or pissed off, so there's no way I will be rude in front of others. And even if I don't do it in front of people, I still need to stop using profanity cause I feel like I'm being rude to myself and it's seriously a bad, bad habit! Fingers crossed!

5. Be Confident

Who else is having a low self-esteem? I used to be so shy, very shy that it's  hard for me to talk to people even saying one word. But ever since I work at my parents' restaurant, I am able to deal with many people. By that I mean, I'm not gonna hide or run if someone approaches me. I still need more of that. I need more confidence so I will make a good impression to people. I dislike it when someone thinks I'm not reliable and underestimate me. I always want to do my best when I do something! I want to prove to people that I can do anything without any fear! Do they sell confidence in a jar at a shop? I'd love to buy it! 

6. Get Organised, Be Responsible And Procrastinate Less

I have so many things to do but I keep procrastinating. I abandoned my task-to-do and mess up my own schedule. I keep a journal, I keep a to-do list yet I break my own words. Korean dramas or oppa Junki are not to be blamed cause I'm the one that supposed to be responsible for myself. I have to manage my time properly and get things done. If I were to live this way, I won't get anywhere. I will be in the same place and won't be able to reach my goals. I planned to go for hiking but until now, none of that is happening. I skip my online classes for weeks due to laziness. I don't know what has gotten into me but I need my spirit back and resume everything that has been cast away.

7. Work Hard Towards My Goals And Wishes

I believe everyone has their own goals and wishes. I'm still trying to figure out my passion; something that I will be happy doing and get paid for that. There's actually something I want to do and I will try my best to chase it. But read again the number 6, I procrastinate lots and it leads me to nothing. I get envy seeing people who work hard to build their career while I do nothing but keep watching KDramas and loitering around Google Park. I need a hard slap on my face so that I will wake up and realise that I still haven't achieved anything!! 

To wrap up this post, it takes time for me to realise and figure out that I have lots to be fixed in my life and myself. I would say that all that I listed above is things that hold me from being able to success. No one to be blamed except myself and I'm the one who should make the change of myself. 

What about you? Have you ever figured out about things to change about yourself? If yes, what would it be? 

I hope you enjoy reading. Toddles!

4 Things To Consider Before Buying A Notebook/Planner

bed, book, breakfast

I am always crazy over notebooks. The obsession started ever since I was in primary school. I really love to have a bunch of them in my collection. As long as it is cute, nothing else matter. But now that I really keeping a journal and use them daily, I realised that there are few factors that need to be considered before picking a notebook or planner or diary or whatever you want to call it. If you are trying to find a perfect planner for yourself, then this post is for you and I hope it's gonna help you in finding a planner peace!


1. Sizes Of The Planners! 

This is a real deal. I don't think you will fancy the idea of taking your large planner to everywhere. As for me, tiny or small size notebook ain't gonna satisfy me. I need a bigger space to write okay! And among all the sizes, I think medium is the very best that it won't be too heavy to carry it anywhere. And there's enough space to write comfortably too! Take a look at the photo below for the size comparison of certain notebooks. Take note that different brands have different size charts!

2. Coil, Ring Binder, Bound Notebook Style

Notebooks or planners come in different style. I used to really hate bound notebook where I can't tear down the paper or else I will ruin the book entirely. Since the paper is glued altogether, it won't be easy to deal when you hate your own handwriting or maybe when you write something stupid that can't be erased and tearing the paper is the only choice you have but sadly you can't lol. I am currently using bound style journal and I don't care about my handwriting or the mistakes I will make. I'm just enjoying my lovely planner! And bullet journal system is the best way to use in bound style notebook and you can check my post HERE to learn how to start bullet journaling. Below photos are my bullet journal notebook and Midori Travelers Notebook and how I use them.

While ring binder gives you more freedom. You can take out pages you don't like, add more papers and just do whatever you want to do in your planner. You can also put pretty dividers aka sections so you won't have a mess planner! I have my ring binder in A6 size (medium). I super love it but I have to accept the fact that the writing space is kinda crowded. But still, I'm loving it! Below photos are my Filofax in personal size and the way I use it. You can have any type of paper such as grid, dotted, line or plain paper all in one place and of course, thats the ultimate pros of using ring binder style notebook.

Coil or spiral-bound style notebook ultimate pros is that it lays flat on table surface and the comfortability when writing is beyond everything. But sadly you can't add any more pages just like the bound notebook. Sorry to say but that is sucks actually. 


3. Type Of Papers

Other than different sizes, some brand of the planner/notebook have different type of papers. There are four types which is grid, dotted, line and plain. My only favourite is always and always the grid one since it will be easy for me to write nicely on it. I can't write on plain paper. I need the guide aka the line ugh. If I wanted to buy a notebook but they only have the choice of line or dotted, I would choose dotted. If the only choice are plain and line, I would choose line. If they only have plain paper, then I won't buy it lol. If you want to have a pretty handwriting and wanted your journal to look neat, grid paper always the best choice! :P

4. The Purpose Of The Notebook

Well, of course this need to be included before picking a notebook. Once you know the reason why you need them, it will help you to decide the size of your notebook and how much space do you require for things you will write. If you want to combine a diary and daily task such as to do list, meals trackers etc, then you will probably need a medium or large size. If the purpose is only for to-do list, small or tiny notebook would be enough. Note taking or brainstorming would be perfect in medium size. And any styles of notebook is fine as long as you know how to manage them! 

Now that you have think about all these factors, I'm pretty sure you have decide something in your head. As for mine, the size of the notebook is really a big matter to me followed by the type of the papers.What about you? What is your preference in buying a notebook or journal or planner? Anyway, I hope this guide will help you to find your planner peace!! Toddles! x
