Ganti



Found this on Google and thought that it was so cute haha. 

I'm fasting today because I missed 8 days of puasa last year so I need to ganti all of them before this year's Ramadhan comes rolling around.  I'm usually one to replace my missed puasa days  at the very last minute like,  if it's a week before puasa, that's the week I'll start replacing hahaha which is so bad and I always regret it when I do so ! 
That's why this year I've made it a point to ganti them earlier. Fasting really does open my eyes to the nikmat that I've been given and it really increases my remembrance of Allah. 

Today, being my first day of ganti puasa, it was quite the challenge. My friends were talking about going to McDonald's for lunch today and my mouth was already watering at the thought of fries and a double cheeseburger, they invited me to come along but I told them I was fasting so Veena, Shamini and Jasmin were very considerate and sweet to go next week instead. After class, I walked back to my car just to find that a Proton Saga double parked in front of Kimberly. SIIIIIIIGH. I made a silent prayer to Allah for strength so I could push the car away. No one was near me to help so I had no choice but to do it on my own. The thing about MSU is that parking space is extremely limited, so a lot of people double park. The rule is they have to put their hand brake down and set their gear into neutral so other people could push the car. It was my first time having to do this (pushing double parked cars), so I didn't even know if I was strong enough hahaha. But I managed to push the car until it wasn't blocking mine so yay ! 

But, pause the yay for a second. 

I thought I could come out, but I still couldn't because the side of my car would still hit the Saga's back bumper. Great. I was already half way out of my parking spot btw. So I had to park my car in that position, (I was already creating a mini traffic jam because of this hahahahaha) went out of my car and pushed the Saga further. Phew !!! I made it out of my parking spot and did a little happy dance as I drove away. Note to self : Don't park there anymore. 

I decided to go get cat food after that, which was kind of a silly stupid decision because I didn't think of the weight of two giant bags of cat food I had to carry back to my car until I had already bought them.. so zzzzzzz. It's like I purposely wanted to tire myself out -_- Haih. Got home in the blistering heat, carried everything inside, put the cat food in the kitchen and for a second I forgot that I was fasting so I opened the fridge and I wanted to grab a strawberry to eat but then I was like.. wait no Izza puasa. Hahaha phew that was close. 

The whole day I couldn't stop thinking about food, and my ultimate craving right now is actually spicy fried chicken. Like the one you could get from Shihlin or 'Uncle Bob' stalls , they're usually everywhere during ramadhan bazaars or at pasar malams. Mmm. Juicy fried spicy chicken seasoned to perfection. MMMMMM. So sad I can't get any for buka tonight because I don't know where to look for them haha. 

Okay, so it's 7.15 now. About 5 more minutes to buka so I should go down and get ready. 1/8 days of ganti puasa, done ! 7 more days to go. Woooo. 

Don't wait til the very last minute to ganti puasa, girls ! x

It's not an official rule or anything, it's just that everyone does it in the parking lot and people get angry if some cars don't so yeah #onlyinMSU lol. Oh that's great ! Thank you xx

    2. Izza before this kan you said you guna mouisterizer garner yang which one? I also once saw yr comment that you wanna change yr concealer. You nak tukar to which brand? Isnt the revlon one works?

      Delete
    3. Yup I guna Garnier dulu but that was until end of last year ? I used the Garnier Light Complete. Now I'm using the Olay Natural White day cream. As for concealer, the Revlon Colorstay that I'm using now is okay but I dah guna since last year jugak so nak try something new haha. Next one I'm going to buy is called Collection 2000 Lasting Perfection Concealer, you can get it in Watson's I think.

      Delete
    4. Garnier light complete yang botol dia like cawan kuning tu? With spf kan? Ohh I went to watson tadi and I see yang revlon concealer tu around 40 so would like to know it is worth it or not. Thanks izza

      Delete
    5. Yup ! :) Haha okay je, but try and look for Collection 2000 tu, it's not more than 25 ringgit I think and I heard it's really good. No problem !

      Delete
    6. it is from revlon as well?

      Delete
    7. Nope, the brand is Collection 2000.

  12. izza material bamboo cotton macam mana eh?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. It's like very light cotton, and the material tak panas at all ! A bit stretchy and tak jarang (unless you beli light colours then nampak a little bit la). BUT I've read on @duckscarves punya comments section and a lot of people say that dia kedut senang gila.

      Delete
    2. oh okay is it keras? I've read someone said it is but since you went to bcs i thought I'd ask what you think of it. Peachskin licin eh?

      Delete
    3. Nope. tak keras at all, it's soft and to me, susah sikit nak bentuk cause I'm used to the chiffon kind of material. Yess peachskin very licin and light.

      Delete

  14. Hey izza! I know this isnt revelant to your post but I just wanted to let you know anyways. I know youve been wanting to get the selma bag from MK kan? Theres this insta shop where the owner kinda like goes to london/paris and US to buy branded bags in bulks and brings them back here to be sold at a much much much cheaper price. I tak ingat sangat the name of the shop, but maybe you could search under branded bags or something and I will try my level best to find that shop and tell you the name :)

    1. Hii ! Yup, I'm on the verge of desperate for the bag dah, I just want it really bad haha. Omg if you manage to find the account, please let me know !! It's so mahal here compared to the prices overseas T.T I think I pernah terjumpa one of those accounts but I was stupid enough to not screenshot or whatever so now I can't find it hahaha. Thank you so much for letting me know ! x

  17. Hai izza i know this may be a random question but i have a boyfriend and he loves me, but he pernah called this girl beautiful once long time ago before we were together and i still cant stop thinking about it. He loves me the way i am, he doesnt talk abt that girl anymore,just once that time, but sumtimes i open topic about her and he doesnt like it..and shes in my uni summore T.T. I mean its not that he dont like it he just doesnt seem to care anymore abt her,but idk i still feel insecure becoz back then he never calls me pretty or anything,but now he does call me beautiful but i always feel im not as beautiful as that girl he calls.it bugs me sumtimes am i stupid to feel that way? Because i dont think im pretty at all but im glad that he loves me the way i am, and we are together quite long and he is the best, but i dont want when i think abt this or if i accidentallu brought it up it will affect our relationship.what u think?? Am i too over to feel that way??so sorry..i read ur blog everyday and i love it..sorry for the random question :3

    ReplyDelete

    1. Hii. Okay I'm just gonna make a list for you.

      1. What he says about other girls or who he thinks is pretty before you guys were together should be insignificant and irrelevant to your relationship now. I don't get why you make such a big deal of that. He wasn't with you yet, it shouldn't matter at all. And you said it yourself, a long time ago. Shouldn't matter AT ALL.

      2. If he doesn't talk about the girl anymore, why do you open the topic and bring it up ? Of course he doesn't like it, and you don't like it too, so why do it ??? If she's in your uni pun, biar je. Tak payah kisah.

      3. Isn't it a good thing that he doesn't care about her ? Just let it be la. The more you bring her up, the more your boyfriend menyampah. Stop feeling insecure. You mention that he loves you and he loves the way you are and calls you beautiful. Accept that and move on. Don't waste your time comparing yourself with this girl or feeling insecure over a compliment that your boyfriend gave to her a long time ago BEFORE you two were even together.

      4. You guys have been together for quite some time, great. But if you don't stop acting this way and you keep putting your insecurities above your own relationship, you're bringing your relationship down. Stop overreacting and get over the situation.

      Sorry if I may seem blunt, but that was my honest opinion. Thanks for reading my blog tho ! x

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Hazelnut latte is a lot lighter, more to beige. Toffee pudding is darker, and brown-er. Ada colour comparisons on duckscarves punya instagram. Scroll down and cari, you can see the difference.
