Hunnymadu's Private Listening Party.

Last weekend the multi-talented Hunnymadu hosted a small listening party for a group of poeple including myself and a number of bloggers, since she will be releasing her very first solo album very soon. I was happy to have had the chance to hear and and give some input on what I thought about all the tracks in her album. I have to admit she is her own artist and has a distinctive sound and I disagree that some people say she sounds like Najwa. Her album is a mixture of jazz, funk, soul, hip hop and everything in between. Overall I think it's definitely an album that's worth your money! I mostly enjoyed tracks like 'Ting Ting' and also a song which featured a duet with Anuar Zain! How can you go wrong from there right? lol. So watch out everyone, she's coming out with a bang!

It's Not The End Of The World.

I know this is completely out of the blue, but I feel the need to let it out anyways. This entry goes out to all the ladies who have ever been heart-broken by a guy or currently dealing with a harsh break-up. I've gone through it before when I was in my first relationship so I think it's something that a lot of people can relate to. It's not easy going through a break up. It hurts I'm not gonna lie. But guess what? Everything happens for a reason. And usually it happens for the best. As some people might put it, 'After a hurricane comes a rainbow'. And thats exactly what happened to me:) Allah always knows what is best for us. I found someone who I can truly call my soulmate and that I believe has made me a better person. At one point in my life, I realized what an idiot I was thinking that I'll never find the 'right guy' again when I was with the wrong guy to begin with! So mark my words ladies, one day you will come to your senses and actually be thankful to the guy who broke your heart! Because if it wasn't for him, you would have never met 'THE ONE'!

So if he/she dumps you saying 'let's just be friends' or 'i'm not ready for a commitment yet', don't go crying your eyeballs out thinking that it's the end of the world or questioning was it something you did wrong and start blaming yourself or all that nonsense. There are tons of guys out there that might just be THE ONE for you! Trust me. Regardless of whatever reason that person left you, in the end it's actually his/her loss, not yours. Break-ups are supposed to make you more mature. Not the other way around. If there's one(or more) things I've learned from my own past experience is :

  • 1. Don't get involved in a relationship when you're in school(especially during important years like SPM year!) because puppy love never lasts(well some do, but very unlikely).
  • 2. Don't get into a relationship that your family(your mom especially!) does not approve of.
  • 3. Don't be in a relationship where you don't feel the freedom to be yourself, ie. making ugly faces or being silly around him. 
and most importantly,
  • 4. Love Allah, your family, and yourself first before anything else.

That's all for today folks! :) Have a great day! xx

A Family Affair.

It was a lovely weekend with my family since we were celebrating two birthdays, my mom's and my eldest brother Baem. So we went for some scrumptious Arab food at the Sahara Tent in Alamanda. It was my first time dining there and I have to say that I loved the food especially the 'Sahara Chicken' and 'Chicken Mandy'. It was a very special celebration this year since I'm working now and I finally got to buy my mom something a little more fancy than I used to as her birthday present:) So I bought her a little something from Habib Jewels. You know what they say, diamonds are a girls best friend! Anyways, I hope she liked the present as much as I enjoyed picking it out for her:)

New Phase.

I feel like I'm entering a new phase in my life, which is a good thing. I'm working, no longer staying with my parents, I just bought my very first car. Somehow I feel a sense of achievement and I'm a lot more mature+independant than I used to be. I've had certain goals in my life that I've wanted to achieve at certain ages and Alhamdulillah I feel that I'm really getting there. I'm praying that this will be the start of something great for my future, insyaAllah:) woh0o i feel empowered!
