My July lists [2018]

Untitled

July is half way through! I can't believe that the end of the year is approaching. I have been going through a few of life changing event this year that are pushing me to reevaluate my life and my goals. I would like to take this opportunity to make a list of a few things that are happening right now: 
Celebrating the new life that I am living right now. Being on my own for the first time is scary but exciting at the same time. I am happy living in my new house which is near to work. This mean I have less stress in the morning. I love the neighbourhood. Not many cars coming and going. I am finally able to be myself and explore all the things I wanted to explore.  
Loving my iPad Pro 10.5" which helps me to take notes and plan digitally so much fun. Sometimes I do missed paper planning but the convenience of digital planning is too good to pass. There are so many youtube videos about digital planning right now and I think people starting to notice the fun of digital planning especially with the Apple Pencil. I hope that this trend will be around for awhile. I love decorating my planner and doing so digitally helps to satisfied my need to create and make things pretty.
Feeling grateful every day for all the blessing and abundance in my life. I love making gratitude lists/journal every single day. It turns out that I have so many things to be thankful for. Making this type of lists makes you feel rich and abundance. This definitely help me to be happy with what I have and for what is coming to me.
Listening to The Happiness Equation by Neil Pasricha on audible. I have been listening to this book since yesterday and I can't put it down. A book about Happiness and has all the tools and tips that I needed to be Happy. I am having a hard time to stay happy. Having a book that help me to stay happy is a nice addition to my life. 
Watching The Librarians on Hulu from season one. I can't believe how much I missed watching stories about supernatural and magic. The Librarians is light, funny and fun to watch. I am also watching The Bold Type Season 2 on Hulu. I like watching the relationship Jane, Sutton and Kat have. Best friends that have each other's back no matter what.

Thinking about my plan for the future. I am a bit worry about where I am going to live after I retired which is not that far away. I have lost my home in the divorce. Finding a new home is not going to be easy. Do I want to stay with my children or do I stay alone. Being alone and retired is the scariest thing ever. As a social being we need to have a relationship, doing something and grow. Now that I am by myself I need to reevaluate my long term plans and goals. 

And that's what's going on in my life at the moment. So what's up with you right now?

Ramadan daily // the conclusion

Hello lovelies! It has been a really long time since the last time I post an entry on this blog. There were so many things happening from me moving to a new house , fasting in the month of Ramadan and Eid Mubarak celebration, left me with little energy to blog. 

Hopefully now that life has slowly fall into place, I can get back into my normal routine again which include blogging. I do miss writing in this blog and documenting a little bit of my life at the moment.

Before I moved on to the next chapter of my life, I do need to wrap up a few things. One of them is my #ramadandaily photos. I do captured my daily photos during Ramadan, I just didn't make the time to sit down and document them in blog. 

So here are the rest of photos from my #ramadandaily project for 2018

Day 13 - It's a public holiday in Malaysia. I spend most of the day cleaning up my new house. And for iftar, we went to Bazar Ramadan at Putrajaya and have a picnic.

Day 14:- Since the mobile internet was out for this week because the relocation date is approaching, I spend most of the night watching youtube channel on my ipad.

Day 15 - I took the day off to prepare for my official moving day tomorrow. I am excited that I got to spend it with this cute little girl.
#ramadandaily

Day 16- It's finally official. I have moved to our new house in Putrajaya. Life is finally looking good and amazing.
#ramadandaily

Day 17 - It's the first day we went shopping for groceries and other utilities in Putrajaya. I was still tired with all the unpacking and rearranging things but I was so happy with this move.
#ramadandaily


Day 18 - Continue shopping at IOI City Mall with my parents. All of the prices were cheaper because there's no GST.#ramadandaily

Day 19 - Second last Monday before Eid was usually the time to shop for makeup. I always love makeup by Mac but this year I am loving tarte and benefit. 
#ramadandaily

Day 20: - Time to buy "baju raya" for my kids. This year Hanif is loving green so, he choose this color for his baju raya
#ramadandaily

Day 21: I finally get a chance to take photo of my new home. I may not owned this house but this place feels more like home to me.#ramadandaily

Day 22: I got a new ipad pro casing and apple pencil casing from Amazon.com. This combination feels like I am having a digital notebook instead of an ipad.#ramadandaily

Day 23: Majlis Khatam Quran at the office. We have finished reciting the Quran as a team. Alhamdulillah, this Ramadan was filled with lots of Quran reciting and less food.#ramadandaily

Day 24: We went to Ikea Cheras to look for some furniture for my new home. I have looked for a few things I wanted to buy online, so I know what to expect. This was the first time I used theLorry.com services to deliver all of the item home. It cost about RM90 for 4x4 vehicle.
#ramadandaily

Day 25: Today we went to Ikea Damansara to buy a few things for my son which we did not get yesterday. Ikea Damansara has a lot more things compared to Ikea Cheras. I wish I could just ordered these furniture online and get them deliver right to my door.#ramadandaily

Day 26 - Monday was a little bit slow because people are already in the mood for Eid#ramadandaily

Day 27#ramadandaily

Day 28 - Today was the last day of fasting at Putrajaya before heading back to my hometown tomorrow. I bought this new tartelette toasted eyeshadow from Sephora for Eid. I am loving all of the colors in this pallets. Tonight we went to see Jurassic World at Alamanda.#ramadandaily

Day 29 - Travel home to Johor was calm and no heavy traffic. Alhamdulillah my eldest son can drive and I can count on him to drive us home safely. This was not the first raya that we celebrate without their father. Somehow this feels so familiar.#ramadandaily

Alhamdulillah, as always there's always something new happening in Ramadan. I am finding peace, joy and happiness. May I get the chance to meet Ramadan again next year. Ameen...
