2015




Oh, 2015. Where do I even begin ? If I could describe my year in just two words, it would definitely be : content & happy. Only Allah knows how grateful I am for everything ; 
For the people in my life, for the different things I got to experience, for the strength and patience He has given me to get through the year. 
"If you are grateful, I will surely increase you [in favour]" - 14:7 Al Quran

Those photos up there are a compilation of some of my favourite moments in 2015. From going to Paris, to meeting my idol (and then ultimately working for her haha), to being Irfan's co-hostess at his open house, to having a super laid back picnic buka puasa with my best friends, to seeing my cousin get married. All of them are really precious memories to me, and I really can't wait to create more in 2016. I'm turning 20 next year, which is craaaaazy. How do I become an adult ?! At 19, I could still get away with acting immature. I'm still a teenager anyway ; bound to make childish mistakes. But 20 ? Irfan told me that once I reach 20, my whole perspective of life would change. I still don't know what he means yet, but I hope I'd have things my life figured out by then (and hopefully have mastered the art of controlling my crazy ~emotions~ and what I say). 

This year wasn't perfect for me. It was good, yes. But not perfect. I have my bad days, and moody days, and downright b*tchy days. I must admit, some days I'm just not a fun person to be around with. Arguments with family members.. fights with the boyfriend that make me wanna strangle him.. why-am-I-never-good-enough moments.. and so on so forth. It happens. But I never let these things become permanent. I get over it and move on. Give my all once again, and get back up stronger. 

2016, I pray you'll be just as good as 2015 if not better. 

Happy New Year !

    1. I know but It's not my place to say, because it's her interview. So you should be asking her, not me :)

  2. hello izza. im 19 this year and im in college. ( matrikulasi to be exact ) i have never had a boyfriend before and sometimes, ok maybe most of the time it makes me really upset and brings my confidence to zero. Bukan nk perasan but i know im not ugly and i have a good sense of character. i feel like everyone, i literally mean everyone (family friends stangers) always assume i have a boyfriend when in fact ive never had one in my entire life before and it drives me crazy when they dont believe me. its like i have this big sign on my forehead that says dont date me i have a husband. help pls. this is serious because i soemtimes feel i would never end up getting married :(

    1. Hiii. Not having a boyfriend should never make you upset, nor should it bring your confidence down.. It's not about looks or character ke apa. But having a boyfriend really doesn't prove anything. Be okay with it and accept that when the time is right, you will find that special someone. You're 19, not 29 and it's really way too early to worry about whether or not you're gonna get married. Seriously. Me having a boyfriend now doesn't even guarantee that I'M going to get married, but there's really no point in worrying and this is not serious at all. You're making it serious for yourself because you keep thinking about it. Focus on the present and work on your studies, have fun with friends and family, adopt a pet. Worry about kahwin when you're actually ready to get married. Sorry if this seemed blunt, but I don't beat around the bush when I want to be honest haha. Take care !

    1. Happy new year to you too ! InsyaAllah, it will :) Oooh I'm so bad at deciding where to go for special occasions hahaha but maybe go out somewhere a little bit nicer for dinner ? 5 years is so long, congratulations ! Thirty8 Grand Hyatt is a super romantic place to have dinner, or even Victoria Station is a nice place to eat too. Or if you're more on the adventurous side, go hikingggg !

  8. Hye Izza! I've always loved reading your blog. You always make me feel content through your post that somehow even though we're at the same age, it surprises me a lot to feel that you inspire me to become a lot more better the next time around in some moments of my life :) Hope it's still not too late to wish you Happy New Year, Izza!

    1. Hii, I appreciate your concern for us ! If it's anyone yang tahu how much I love Irfan pun its you guys who read my blog, so I'm touched that you hope we're both okay. I did delete all of them (I terlupa one tho, the one with the izza + Irfan on the padlock haha), and I regret deleting them all ! We both weren't okay the other day and I let my emotions get the best of me sampai I delete everything. But we're okay now ! Our relationship is a lot stronger after what happened :)

    2. Another silent reader here! and I noticed that too and I'm worried (for not solid reason as I dont know you personally but I love reading your blog! tehee). So happy to hear that everything is okay now :) Stay strong Izza.

      p/s: I am lot older than you and tak malu nak bagitau I've been there and done that too when I bergaduh with my bf (now husband). Just wanna share something, everything you feel the urge to delete everything related to him because you really really wanna kill him but you actually can not (haha), just shut all the social media down. Delete the apps or hide your phone or something and then run away for a while, look at your cat, your mom, or anything. and then breath in breath out.. and then consider the decision again..hehe. Happy new year Izza!

    3. Hii ! Awww you guys are all too sweet to worry about me ! I'll stay strong, thank you <3

      Thank you for the advice too ! I'll definitely do that the next time I feel like making him disappear from everything hahaha. I wish you a happy marriage with your husband ! Hope Irfan and I will reach to that point someday (if we don't kill each other by then lolol). Happy new year to you too ! x

  10. Izza im sorry too i dont mean to be a busybody but how do u usually handle if u mad at irfan? Do u usually let him know straight away or ignore and let it go? -someone whos still learning^^-

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Oh no don't be sorry, I'm open to share about how I handle things. If I'm mad at Irfan, I let him know straight. I'm very impatient and when I'm not happy I just go ahead and say it. I can never ignore and let it go because I might hold a grudge on him and I don't want to bring it up in the future. So we usually talk it out and try to settle it there and then. We try to never bring the same issues up again unless it's necessary. Good luck with your relationship ! :)

  16. hi izza. i can see that u have quite a number of working experiences ya? well, i'm actually planning to work as well since I'm on my semester break now. and my hometown is in penang while my uni is uitm shah alam tho. the thing is, my semester break is only approx 6 weeks liddat. do u think i should just work or i just spend my time with my family tho? I'm quite in dilemma bcs my mom kinda refuse to let me work bcs she said i only have a few weeks to rest and then i'll be busy again in uni. but then I'm very desperate for money bcs i wanna start saving T.T pls give me wise words abt this. or.... do u think if i work like for only 10 days and that should be enough. well u know fr the time being. i hope u get my message! much love izza xx

    1. Hii, just a few ! Oh I see, 6 weeks hmm. Look for a job in penang, spend 4 weeks (a month) to work and another 2 weeks just to relax and spend time with your loved ones. That's what I would do. I'm not sure if there are any jobs that only accept 10 days of work.. it's usually a month but it depends on the job also. Just explain to your mum that you want to start earning and saving up money, she'll understand. xx
