you and me! Let’s talk about all the good things and the bad things that may be… and the rest of the song you probably will remember going through the memory lane, if it’s new to you, here’s the song! But this post isn’t about that song. This post is about something I read earlier. […]
I can be so terribly good at procrastinating. I even can scare myself with it! With the same amazement I can be amazed how much I can do in such little time as well. Sometimes I am feeling that I am living on the outer edges of these two extremes without being comfortable stable in […]
I am sure that every single human being is at least once in their lives: anxious, stressed, nervous, panicking, or simply said being in a state of distress. How wonderful does it then sound to be delighted! Being care free, relaxed, empowered and ready to take on the next challenge? There are many self-help books […]
But Hey!! That is simply amazing! How did that happen? I am amazed, humble, grateful that you are following me. I actually mean that! I started this blog somewhere in 2015. Then I initially wanted to have a place to collect environmental articles I posted on other blogs. But, I knew that I wouldn’t be […]
Don’t you have the same too once in a while? That there is a movie in your head? On repeat? Over and over again? This I have recently. The day my mother died. I realized that I never put it on paper, this day, this rather special day in a way. Not for me but […]
Facebook is a terrible invention. I am happy that I am out of there, though it is only a month or so. However, it is enough time to have ‘forgotten’ about it, how it is not part of my life anymore, or, how I’m no longer part of Facebook’s money making machine. But I also […]
So, fellow Malaysians (I know I know, I am not a Malaysian but I do love this country and here my home is) and the rest of the world. A quick demonstration of a matsaleh (white foreigner) who doesn’t want to join the fast food hype by cooking a very simple non-Malaysian, but delicious meal!
The brilliant and magical Sunday morning I wrote about couldn’t end better! Do you know those days? When there is a nice flow and energy that this flow continues throughout the whole day? That you meet unexpected things or that you are in unexpected situations you always will remember?
Such a day was this Sunday.
Suddenly, as if someone snapped me out of this world I found myself being in a movie or a character in a book. It felt I wasn’t grounded on earth anymore. All that seemed real a minute ago was now fiction.
I saw there was a new app suddenly on my phone. Google Assistant or something, which now is gone for some unknown reason. But! I like her, she’s cool and witty 😂😂😂😂 and a real Rebel Thanks Google Assistant…. Sigh….
Malaysia is an Islam/Muslim dominant country, which also has a multicultural society, has a democracy, and that we are living peacefully with each other. I would like to speak up against the rising Islamophobia in the West by giving my input in the debate in a positive way from my own experience trying to give […]
The finale of the 14th General Elections (GE14) in Malaysia are Epic. There simply is no other word than epic to describe the course of these elections. It teaches that voting matters. It teaches that your right to influence your country absolutely is possible. In Malaysia, after about a 60 year rule of the leading coalition, Malaysians voted the opposition in power.
And yes, sometimes you can say that to yourself! Right, Hadie?
“10-ish in the morning, then they are coming to service the air conditioning, remember?” “Yeah, I remember” “Okay” I couldn’t keep on chatting as the air conditioning service tried to call: “I’m mat saleh (whiteman/foreigner), I no speak Malay”. End. Whatsapp: “I’m mat saleh, I no speak Malay. What time are you coming?” “on our […]
My focus in this post is the obesity side of body shaming, while there also is the opposite site. Usually in form of anorexia or other severe forms of undernourishment, which often is life threatening. Also these patients, never. ever. shame them!
“You almost drove over it, she was just not under the bloody wheel” she replied as if I had lost my mind.
“It was a plastic bag, garbage, at least so it looked” I stuttered.
“Now we have a cat” she said with great content
I did not want to take that wiggling bridge again we took entering the docks I wrote about in Pt 3 of this series. In little boy’s excitement I did cross it once and that was more than enough! Still blown away of the ‘National Geographic’ walk we saw the main entrance and walked out, […]
Whenever you plan a travel, usually you plan with a certain expectation. Most of the time this expectation comes true and you have had a very nice travel but also, a couple of years later, you forget about it till you see the pictures back again. A more memorable travel is when the experience exceeds […]
Where your camera lenses are coming from? I’m just realising that Hadie is supervising quality control of glass products and perhaps a lens that you might have in your camera 😀 Either your real camera, like that thing not in your phone, or exactly that thing in your phone you just took a selfie with. […]
I was going there too taking some pictures and suddenly, as a little boy who sees the ocean for the very first time, stripping till my underwear and ran in the ocean!
