SILENCE : the absence of sound

The best thing that I can do when I am angry, too angry is just to remain SILENCE. 

The best thing that I would do when I am having a fight with my love ones, is just to remain SILENCE.

I guess that's the best I can do. I do sometimes explode, which I really hate to be in that situation. I am afraid that I might say something that I later on will regret.

Passion-Based Business

I've started doing business (like earning my own pocket money) at the age of 10. My mom made nasi lemak and I brought to school to sell to my friends. It was of course not allowed at school but I did it sembunyi2. It was only last for a few days until I've been caught in red handed!

My late mom was a great cook. I guess because of that many of her friends always got her to cook for them. It started by helping them until she later got paid for all the foods that she cooked. I always helped her especially during Raya. That was the busiest month of the year. She made thousands and thousands of delicious cookies. Owh.. I miss those moment.

I made my own first cake to sell when I was 15years old. Sold it to my aunty and mom's friend with pride! Hahaha though it was only two "customers", I was still proud of it.

Since I am now not working and stay at home, I find a way to create business to fill up my 'extra' time beside earning additional income. Five years ago when I was in Malaysia, I sort of trial and error in selling cakes and kek lapis sarawak. Surprisingly it was quite a huge success especially during Raya sampai tak cukup tangan. People got to know my product from mouth to mouth and online. Yes.. at that time I did have a blog promoting my cakes. It was an exciting moment when strangers contacted you asking about your cakes!

Nowadays, an online business is not only a trend but it is like a must for everybody to make known their product thru online. Though you already have a physical store or shop, one good way of telling people is thru the internet. We can promote our product thru its own website, blog, fb or instagram.

I myself love to shop online! I find it very convenient. I can shop at anytime and anywhere. I have also seriously started venture business thru online. The first one is iwatchyourbag. This idea came from three of us (me, M and N) who are so crazy over handbags. We can just talk endlessly about handbags. One day, I told them.. since we have so much knowledge about all kind of designer handbags and always keep up to date with the new design/model, why not we transform our passion to money?

It has been six months now and I can say that it is not bad after all. We manage to sell quite number of handbags. It is very competitive market as there are many online seller out there but we are selling preloved vintage designer handbags. Maybe that's the different. Designer handbags are increasing their price crazily and we are here to fulfil the desire of those who can't earn the expensive brand-new but still can buy the good preloved with cheaper price!

A month ago I've started another online business - abayaoman. The idea started after a few times went back to Malaysia buying abaya for my friends. I venture this business with my sister in-law. She is handling all the enquiries from customers where as I am in charge of designing, purchasing and tailoring the abaya and also sharing the abaya in our fb and instagram. For a newbie, I would say that we are quite success.

One of the problems that we are having for the online seller like us is HOW TO LET PEOPLE KNOW THAT WE ARE EXIST?

I will continue this in my next post. Meanwhile please do visit my fb and ig of iwatchyourbag and abayaoman.

Alhamdullilah… Thank you Allah for allowing me to breath till now. Today I am 45 years old. Huih.. tak sangka dah tua kan..

There are of course ups and downs along the journey of my life to reach this age and if I were to list down here, there might be not enough pages.

Bila dulu2 orang tua cakap - "aku makan garam dulu dari kau" atau "aku ni orang tua.. hati sensitif" atau "eee.. tak lalu ah nak makan ni.. "

Ahah.. now I have that all sorts of feelings. Bila budak2 hingusan nak tunjuk terror atau anak2 nak tunjuk pandai maka keluarlah ayat "aku makan garam dulu dari kau"!

I am happy with my life now. Syukur sangat. Though I am not working, go to office but I still can earn money in my own way. Well.. beside pocket money given by hubby, I am now be able to create money thru my passion.

I've been staying at home as a homemaker for 12 years now. Huh.. that very long that I didn't even realise it. Luckily my brain is still smart and functioning. Hahahaha..

I always love to occupied myself with sorts of activities and hobbies. I always make myself busy to do this and that which sometimes I feel like I need more time to do more things.

I just love my life now and love what I am doing now. Thank you Allah. Thank you to my husband who has always support and encourage me in whatever I want to do though sometimes it is the nonsense things but he still go along with me!

I am also proud to see the achievement of all my children. They are such a smart and independent kids. They always make me and hubby proud of them.

Couldn't ask for more right?

My pray and wish for my 45th birthday are:
Allah will give me a healthy long life at least until I am be able to attend Nabila & Hakeem University Graduation Day.
I and my family will always be protected from any harms and major sickness.
My body is always healthy so that I can continue going to the gym, cycling and do my amal ibadah.
Allah memurahkan my rezeki and family.
To be loved by family and friends
Last but not least, to always look fabulous and good walaupun dah tua kerepot!

September… Kau Datang Lagi..

Among of all the months in the whole year, SEPTEMBER is my favourite month. If you ask me why, I don't really know how to answer it.

To me September is a sexy month. A month of feminine and love. Hahahhaa.. you would probably be thinking that I am crazy or some psycho woman who just escaped from the mental institute but hey.. that is what I feel.

September is also a month of my born day! A month that I always looking forward to be getting older a year.. to receive wishes from everybody and also presents or flowers (if i am lucky) from loved ones.

September also means, we have already passed the third quarter of the year. We are just a few months away before reaching the next new year. Once we reach September.. everything just go so fast that without realising we are already in December!

Well.. I am looking forward to be sexy and loved during this month!

Welcome September.
