Gaufres



Rad looking shades aren't mine, they're his !

Gaufres is 'waffles' in French btw. This post is a little overdue, but I wanted to blog about it anyway because it was a good day, and good days need to be remembered haha. Irfan and I had lunch at The Daily Grind in Bangsar Village last Thursday, and we both had our favourite things. Me ; waffles, Irfan ; burgers. We're complete opposites when it comes to food, I'm more to the sweet stuff like cakes, waffles, pancakes, cookies and he's all burgers and wagyu beef. (Maybe that's why I'm the sweet one bahahahah kidding, he is). 

Anyway, I've only been to The Daily Grind twice (?) including last Thursday so I totally forgot how great their waffles are. They're a little too generous on the cream but everything else on the plate is perfection, and Irfan's burger tasted yummy too ! I had a bite of his patty and it was amazing. Sadly I didn't get any good photos of Irfan that day cause he was sitting against the light by the huge window. Lighting was beautiful on my side and I got to spare my shameless "Can you take a picture of me", because his "Baby, you want me to take your pictures or not, did you bring your camera ?" beat me to it. Hahahaha. Hashtag best boyfriend ever pls. 





We went to Dome at BSC for tea after that, well not exactly tea. I had a tall glass of chocolate milkshake and he had soda hahaha. 
It was raining really heavily outside when we were there and the jam was going to be horrible so we spent our time there talking until the rain stopped. 

Hi Olivia 

Such a typical girl thing to take selfies while waiting but oh well what to do haha 

His mum invited me for dinner with the family that night but my phone didn't ring when Irfan called me as I was driving away, but next time definitely. 

I'm gonna be attending the Being ME ; Love Aisha conference in Putrajaya this Saturday and I am stoked !! I seriously feel like I'm in need of more spiritual guidance right now, especially with the holy month of Ramadhan coming real soon. I'll be going to the conference with my mum and my aunty Nora, but I'll be meeting Irfan's sister Kak Imani there. Can't waaaaait ! Any of you going ? If yes, and you see me around, please say hi ! I have an RBF (resting bitch face) and I look like I'm unapproachable and moody when I'm not talking or smiling but I'm nice I promise hahaha. 


Oh and this is totally out of topic, but my best friends and I were talking about flowers in our group chat and Mel shared with us this link to an article about 12 unique florists in Malaysia and I am IN LOVE. I adore flowers, but I would never want anybody to spend hundreds on a bouquet of flowers for me because well, they're gonna die and they don't last that long (whyyyy must flowers be so expensive), but in this article : Modern Florists in Malaysia, one of the florists 'Happy Bunch' (http://www.happybunch.com.my/happybunch/) or @happybunchmy on Instagram, sell beautiful flowers in tumblr-esque bouquets for 39 ringgit including delivery around KL / Petaling Jaya. Like whaaaaaat, that's brilliant ! Go look at their Instagram, their bouquets are really nice. They change the flowers and arrangements every day but worry not, they will be beautiful. So, for your mother's birthdays or your best friends or the love of your lives or even if it's just to make someone's day, send them flowers from Happy Bunch !


Okay, that's it for this post. I need some sleep since it's almost 1AM and my shift starts at 7 tomorrow (yikes). 
Goodnight ! Have a good rest of the week. x

    1. Hi ! Nope, I'm on my semester break now. If you want to work and you think you can handle it then by all means continue working, but I worked part time last semester while I was studying and it got way too overwhelming that I had to stop a couple of weeks before finals just so I wouldn't feel so restless. Try continue working a couple of weeks and see if you're okay with it :) x

  2. Is it too late to get the tickets to the conference now? Do you have to pay to go?

    ReplyDelete

    1. I think you can still get them online on their website, just google search being ME Malaysia. And if the tickets don't sell out by Saturday there should be tickets selling on the day itself too (usually they'd sell these for cheaper). Yup it's a paid event unfortunately :(

    2. Ohh i see thanks Izza! How much is the standard price?

      Delete
    3. I got mine at an early bird price so it was 120. Normal price is 167 ! :( So mahal I know, but it's for knowledge, and islamic knowledge some more ! So I don't mind spending for Allah SWT's sake.

    4. Yeah you're right :) Ok last question! Aha sorry Izza. Event tu memang dengar talk je eh ada benda lain ke? Sebab I tengok website dia dia kata ada booths semua tu?

  4. Sorry if this quite personal to you but how do u handle fights with Irfan? And since u guys are not in the same college, how can bear with the distance?

    ReplyDelete

    1. It's okay, I think it's good to share these kinda things. We girls need to help each other out haha. For the first question, when we fight, we usually settle it there and then. We don't prolong the fight and not speak to each other at all for hours / days. In the relationship, I'm the egoistic, immature one and he's the sensible one. I'm really lucky. He would try his hardest to make things right again even when I'm clearly the one at fault, and we would talk about it and discuss the problem from A to Z. Fights get messy but if your love for each other is strong, then no fight could ever break the love apart in my opinion.

      For the second question, Irfan and I have a mutual trust and understanding for each other. When both of us are back in college, we understand that we're both committed to our studies and that we both have tight schedules with a million assignments / projects. So it's completely ok if we can't text or talk to each other 24/7. I miss him a lotttttt all the time, especially when he's away and we're both busy, but yknow we're both working hard for our future together anyway. We learn to adapt to the situation, no matter how hard it gets haha.

  5. Hi izza. I have a boyfriend but I've been paying for everything lately. I don't think that's the way it goes in a relationship because usually the guy should be a gentleman and pay instead. I swear I've spent a lot on him already but he always points out that he doesn't have money. If you don't mind sharing, how is it with you and irfan? When you guys go out who will usually pay? Please help me out I am totally broke!

    1. Hiii. I don't think a guy should ever have to pay for everything when going out for dates, especially at our age since none of us are really making that much money to spend on our other halves. However, it's always a nice gesture when guys offer to pay. I know it sucks that you have to pay for everything now, but does he say things like "I'll pay the next time" or anything like that ? It's really not fair to you if he doesn't.

      How it is for me and Irfan is, we usually spilt. Not like I pay for my meal, he pays for his when the bill comes, but more to like, he pays for our food and I pay for the movie tickets and things like that. It can go vice versa too. But I think being in love just makes you super generous cause you love them so some times I would pay for everything, and sometimes he would pay for everything, but most of the time we pay for each other. It's about balance, really. It's not good to be berkira but we're still young and we don't generate a lot of income so it's totally understandable if we have to become berkira sometimes. You should sit down with your boyfriend and talk to him, tell him that you can't keep paying for everything and think about alternatives that you could do that don't involve having to spend money, like picnics or things like that. He cannot simply get used to paying everything for you with the excuse that he's broke. It's not fair to you !

    2. Eh my last sentence didn't make sense haha what I meant was : He cannot simply get used to YOU paying for everything when you guys go out with the excuse that he's broke. It's not fair to you !

  9. you pernah tak rasa unease for no reason? how do you deal with that feeling sebab lately i've been feeling down for no reason and everything just rasa like it's wrong.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. I have. How I deal with them is I make lots of doa, and just talk to Allah, especially after solat. If He can put that emotion in us, He can also remove it. I also remind myself of positive things & surround myself with positive people, it really helps :) I hope you feel better soon. x

    1. Hii ! Oh did you choose via poslaju ? if yes, then they'll give you the tracking number soon and then you'll be able to track your parcel via PosLaju. It usually take around 1 - 3 working days, but PosLaju can be inefficient sometimes so it may take longer. If anything just track it or email the FV customer service, they'll get back to you as soon as possible. Salam ramadhan to you too !! x

    1. Mostly in the human resource department of companies, recruiting people, training, etc. It's okay to be unsure, I wasn't sure too and I didn't even pick my course. My family chose it for me but alhamdulillah I'm doing quite well. Just study what you like, or ask your family for opinions. They know you best :)

  19. Hey izza, sorry if this question bothers you but i just feel like ur the right person to ask. my boyfriend will be leaving for college tmr in melaka and i just dont know how will i survive, i mean we're so used to seeing each other. Im insecure all the time, what if he meet another girl? I rly dont know how to handle this. Do you always see irfan? If not, how do you communicate with him?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Hi ! It's okay, don't be sorry. Ah that must be hard for you. Don't feel insecure, he loves you !! No other girl can steal his heart if he loves you, so don't worry about that. Talk to him when both of you are free, and treat each other with love. The distance sucks and it may feel like its the end of the world cause he's so far away and you're used to seeing him, but if you guys keep making each other feel special, everything is going to be okay. Be positive about it, your boyfriend's getting an education and he's gonna use that to get a good job and take care of you in the future (thinking so far here but it helps you stay positive ! haha).

      I don't always see Irfan. I see him at most 4 times a month ? We've even gone through 2 months of not seeing each other at all ! But we Skype and we talk to each other whenever we're both free. I always remind him that I love him and he does the same, and even though we don't communicate 24/7, we try to make each other happy when we do talk. The fact that we both trust each other helps a lot. We cope better when we're both busy and stuff.

      Don't feel insecure okay ! You'll be fine :) x

  20. Would you call your boyfriend loyal? If so, how do you know? Do you just feel it in your gut?

    I have a boyfriend of close to two years and I feel like he isn't and hasn't been faithful to me. It's such a horrible feeling!

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Yup, I would ! But that doesn't mean I don't ever feel insecure / worried / paranoid about him going to other girls too. I think it's normal when you love someone too much and you just worry about not being good enough for them that they try to look for an alternative.

      One thing I've learned about how to get over these kind of feelings is to never expect the worst of him, if I ever feel uneasy about him or the relationship, I talk to him about it straight and then I feel so much better and relieved haha. If I'm curious about something, I'll just go ahead and ask bluntly rather than beat around the bush and make myself feel more crappy because I'm not getting answers. It's a horrible feeling, I know ! But just talk to him about it and focus on being the best partner for him rather than worry about how faithful he is. He's been with you for almost two years, I'm sure he loves you very much. Communication and honesty is key ! x
