Friday Inspiration

We forget that we have to take time to enjoy the little things in our life right now. No matter where we are in our life journey at this moment, there are a million things around us that we should be enjoying and celebrating.

This too shall pass....

Ever feel stuck; unable to get out of the circle you are in?  You are not alone. 

Four such simple words, but yet so full of meaning. 
..... for me when I am really feeling like I am ‘lost’ I know that those four words are 
technically true, but they’re still so hard to cling on to.
And in the meantime I hope that ‘this too will pass’ really helps.
 I keep wondering when I will stop saying “this too shall pass” There is some
 comfort in hearing “this too shall pass”, “something will turn up” or “one day it 
will all get sorted” but 
the questions are: “When?” and “For how long?

But yah............ – this too shall pass!

What's up?

"The best thing that happened today was getting a whole lot of chores done at home, some shopping, some cooking and some laundry. You feel happy when things are in place and nothing like a home cooked meal to make you feel warm and much appreciated from your loved ones."

Sleeping positions

The way you sleep can tell a lot about the person that you are:)

Source: BBC

Foetus(41%): Those who curl up in the foetus position are described 
as tough on the outside but sensitive at heart. They may be shy when they 
first meet somebody,
 but soon relax. This is the most common sleeping position, adopted by 
41% of the 1,000 people who took part in the survey. More than twice as many 
women as men tend to adopt this position.
Log (15%): Lying on your side with both arms down by your side. These 
sleepers are easy going, social people who like being part of the in-crowd,
 and who are trusting of strangers. However, they may be gullible.
Yearner (13%): People who sleep on their side with both arms out in front 
are said to have an open nature, but can be suspicious, cynical. They are slow to
 make up their minds, but once they have taken a decision, they are unlikely
 ever to change it.
Soldier (8%): Lying on your back with both arms pinned to your sides. 
People who sleep in this position are generally quiet and reserved. 
They don’t like a fuss, 
but set themselves and others high standards.
Freefall (7%): Lying on your front with your hands around the pillow,
 and your headturned to one side. Often gregarious and brash people,
 but can be nervy and
 thin-skinned underneath, and don’t like criticism, or extreme situations.
Starfish (5%): Lying on your back with both arms up around the pillow. 
These sleepers make good friends because they are always ready to
 listen to others, and offer help when needed. They generally don’t
 like to be the centre of attention.
My favourite sleeping position is foetus. How about yours? 
Happy weekend:)

Amazing story

I've read this many times but it seems just as beautiful as the first time I read it.

Eight Lies My Mother Told Me While I was Growing Up~via email

Source-Google image
This story begins when I was a child: I was born poor. Often we hadn't enough to eat. Whenever we had some food, Mother often gave me her portion of rice. While she was transferring her rice into my bowl, she would say, "Eat this rice, son, I'm not hungry." This was Mother's First Lie.

As I grew, Mother gave up her spare time to fish in a river near our house; she hoped that from the fish she caught, she could give me a little bit more nutritious food for my growth. Once she had caught just two fish, she would make fish soup. While I was eating the soup, mother would sit beside me and eat what was still left on the bone of the fish I had eaten; my heart was touched when I saw it. Once I gave the other fish to her on my chopstick but she immediately refused it and said, "Eat this fish son, I don't really like fish." This was Mother's Second Lie.

Then, in order to fund my education, Mother went to a Match Factory to bring home some used matchboxes, which she filled with fresh matchsticks. This helped her get some money to cover our needs. One wintry night I awoke to find Mother filling the matchboxes by candlelight. So I said, "Mother, go to sleep; it's late: you can continue working tomorrow morning." Mother smiled and said, "Go to sleep son, I'm not tired." This was Mother's Third Lie.

When I had to sit my Final Examination, Mother accompanied me. After dawn, Mother waited for me for hours in the heat of the sun. When the bell rang, I ran to meet her... Mother embraced me and poured me a glass of tea that she had prepared in a thermos. The tea was not as strong as my Mother's love. Seeing Mother covered with perspiration, I at once gave her my glass and asked her to drink too. Mother said, "Drink son, I'm not thirsty!" This was Mother's Fourth Lie.

After Father's death, Mother had to play the role of a single parent. She held on to her former job; she had to fund our needs alone. Our family's life was more complicated. We suffered from starvation. Seeing our family's condition worsening, my kind Uncle, who lived near my house, came to help us solve our problems big and small. Our other neighbors saw that we were poverty stricken so they often advised my mother to marry again. But Mother refused to remarry saying, "I don't need love." This was Mother's Fifth Lie.

After I had finished my studies and got a job, it was time for my old Mother to retire but she carried on going to the market every morning just to sell a few vegetables. I kept sending her money but she was steadfast and even sent the money back to me. She said, "I have enough money." That was Mother's Sixth Lie.

I continued my part-time studies for my Master's Degree. Funded by the American Corporation for which I worked, I succeeded in my studies. With a big jump in my salary, I decided to bring Mother to enjoy life in America but Mother didn't want to bother her son. She said to me, "I'm not used to high living." That was Mother's Seventh Lie.

In her dotage, Mother was attacked by cancer and had to be hospitalized. Now living far across the ocean, I went home to visit Mother who was bedridden after an operation. Mother tried to smile but I was heartbroken because she was so thin and feeble but Mother said, "Don't cry son, I'm not in pain." That was Mother's Eighth Lie.

Telling me this eighth lie, she died. Yes Mother was an Angel!

  • "M" is for the million things she gave me,
  • "O" means only that she's growing old,
  • "T" is for the tears she shed to save me,
  • "H" is for her heart of gold,
  • "E" is for her eyes with love-light shining in them,
  • "R" means right , and right she'll always be,

p/s~To my Amma: Thank you very much for your love:)
And to all the Mothers in the world~you are always great:)

Check it out:)

What's really important for you

Don't scroll down. Read the info given slowly and answer the question first before you scroll down for the answer. As that you would get more honest and accurate results.

Try this simple test to find out what's really important for you.

Cow, Sheep, Pig, Tiger, Horse

Arrange this 5 animals according to your preference. For example, Sheep will come first if it is your favourite animal.

Now here are the answers.

Cow --- Career
Horse ---Family
Pig --- Money
Sheep --- Love
Tiger --- Pride

And I was quite surprise to find out that money is actually the least important to me. But, love comes first. This is very accurate, as for me wanted to be showered with
 love always:))

Hope you enjoy this test. :P

Online shopping

Hi Readers,
I received my new top/blouse, cardigan and blazer few days ago.
 I'm so happy that all fits me well.
I seldom buy online stuffs. This was the third time. First and second time I bought 'mouse' costume and hat for my little darling, Tanneish
 through Facebook.
This mouse costume still fits my boy:)
This time I bought it from the Mosfashion.:)
And I am quite happy with the stuffs I received few days ago:)
Cotton Blazer
Net blouse~ I like this very much:)
The important things that you have to focus when you purchase online are size, material and payment/shipping.

There is nothing that beats the satisfaction of seeing your newly
purchased goods arrive at your doorstep waiting to be worn out.
I found great deals online. But with clothes, if it doesn't fit then you also have to pay ti have the item returned. Thus, measure your body size and check through the details like measurement, types of material 
and so on given. 

Happy (online) shopping!

Welcome NOVEMBER...

Hello November......
 It's the second last month of 2012, can you believe it? This year seems to be wrapping up pretty quickly and I am looking more excitement. This year has passed by so fast ~ feels as though life has been on a fast forward mode*_*
There are so many upcoming events. First, on 2nd Nov my school annual dinner will be held at Alson Klana Resort, our theme this year is quite complicated. Why?

Yup.................Arabian theme ^0^

Already decided what to wear for my school annual dinner. Will be sharing my annual dinner photos with you all, okay.

Next, My little darling, Tanneish's birthday on 11th Nov. Plan to celebrate on Diwali night with parents, siblings, SILs, BILs, nephews, nieces and our relatives at my parents's house in Segamat
 I am very sure will be the great party:)

After that, the great celebration for Hindus~Diwali~ which falls on 13th Nov. Hubby is not here yet:(  He is still at offshore in Miri. Hopefully he'll be here with me and children for this lovely and colourful day:)

Good news for teachers and students~ School holiday is going to start soon. 
Holidays mean jolly days:) Almost 7 weeks.  Yahoooo....
 It means no morning rush hours and my dear children: we can sleep late 
in the morning! The best part I'm going to be full time mother:)  

But wait, there will be one week course somewhere in Port Dickson for me as I am the library and media teacher. My dear children~no all going to spend time with your lovely grandparents during my course.  I am sure my dear children 
will enjoy their stay there.

Hope November brings abundance of  joy for me, my family and you too:)

I Love Shoes

"A woman never looks complete without good shoes. No matter what you do; wear good clothes, good accessories, make-up and hair-dos, shoes are an important part of you." 
I am very sure that you agreed with me too, right? 
 Shoe addict!!! That's me! I love shoes especially high heels and i can’t resist myself to buy whenever i go shopping.  But sometimes i tend to purchase the same style
 just different in colour :D. I always tend to buy shoes to match with my dress/clothes ^_^

Some of the shoes I bought recently while I went for Diwali shopping:)

Green rolls

Me with my working colleagues

Kuih Ketayap

This is a traditional kuih that you can find easily at roadside stalls in Malaysia. It's a rolled up pandan flavoured pancake with gula melaka and coconut filling. Pandan gives the pancake a lovely green colour and a wonderful fragrant flavour.

Today, my friend was teaching her form one students how to make 'kuih ketayap' during her 'home science class'.  I was in the next class. 
I love kuih ketayap but never try to make this at home. So, I with few teachers took the chance to learn today
 since we had free time:)

*Want to learn to make this 'kueh'. Here it goes.....


Coconut Filling

2 Cup Grated Coconut
60 – 80 g Gula Kabung / Melaka ( Palm Sugar ) or you can use normal sugar
¼ Cup Coconut Milk

Pandan Pancake

1 Cup All Purpose Flour
1 Large Egg
½ Cup Pandan Juice ( 2-4 pandan leaves blended with ½ cup water and strained )
1 Cup Coconut Milk
2 Tbs Vegetable Oil
2 Pandan Leaves, tied together to use as a brush
A pinch of Salt


Coconut Filling

1. Melt the sugar with coconut milk.
2. Once the sugar has melted, coat the grated coconut with the mixture and make sure it's not too dry.


1. In a mixing bowl, whisk flour, egg, pandan juice, coconut milk and salt together. 
2. Heat a non stick pan and brush it with oil using the pandan leaves brush.
3. Pour about a half cup of batter and move the pan around to spread the batter evenly. Use the same technique as making crepes.
4. Once cooked, remove from the pan and fill it with the coconut filling.
5. Roll the pancake like 'Popia'.
6. Repeat the steps until you've used up all the batter.

Don't forget to try yah:)

Stay Motivated Forever

Found this interesting reading "5 ways to stay motivated forever", thought it is worth sharing with you.  With the complications we have every day, it would be good to keep you motivated all the time.  Let have a look and understand on this list and hope it will make your life 
more meaningful and enjoyable!

1. Visualize your Goal 

It begins with the understanding of what you really want. Once that item is taken care of, it is important to visualize the ultimate goal that you are trying to achieve.

When you create a vision of the thing that you aim to achieve, it creates a powerful gravitating force that makes you want to strive for. This vision leads to an inspiration, which in turn propels you to keep yourself motivated.
For example, if weight loss is your goal, see a healthier, slimmer you in that outfit you always wanted to fit into.

No matter what your goal, this works like magic.

2. Postpone Laziness

Procrastination or laziness is a major inhibitor for motivation.
Every time you put something off for later, you move one step down from your goal. Therefore, it is important to stop making excuses and go for it.
If you are preparing for an examination that could change your life for better and you don’t feel like picking up that book to study, postpone that thought; and get started.
Every time that you think of postponing a task in hand that will help you achieve your goal, postpone your excuses/laziness instead of postponing the actual task.
The bottom line: The time is now!

3. Positive In, Negative Out

Negativity in any form hampers your approach towards goals.
The mind allows negativity to seep in quite often; it is important to eliminate these negative thoughts to keep yourself motivated.
Think of all the negative thoughts that cross your mind: some common ones are, “I never knew this task could be so tough, Oh I can’t do this, I don’t think I am cut out for this.”
Instead replace these thoughts with “I can do it, If he/she can, so can I, This is what I have wanted to do always, now is the time.”
Positive thoughts can significantly impact the way you deal with the task at hand, which eventually yields desirable results.
Always approach your goal/task with a “can do” attitude; this is a certain way to keep yourself motivated for tougher challenges.
Besides positive thoughts, it is also essential to avoid negative people who can do or say things to bring your motivation levels down.
Criticism and compliments are both important components of staying motivated.
However, with positive people you are sure to get less criticism and more support, which plays a pivotal role in keeping you even more motivated.

4. One Day at a Time

While a long-term vision to your goal is crucial, it is equally important to take small steps.
Set yourself small milestones that finally lead to your main goal.
By taking these baby steps, you enjoy small successes that help you stay motivated.
After a few days/months, you will start to notice that you have progressed well, and want to keep going for more.

5. Don’t Give Up

You can’t control all things about your life.
If you experience a little lull in your motivation levels, don’t give up.
You still have the big goal that still remains to be achieved.
If you experience a slowdown, don’t let it get to you.
It is probably just one of those days when you are really not up to it.
Take it easy; however, don’t lose sight of the long-term goal and how badly you need to achieve it.
Motivation, like learning, never ceases and is a lot of hard work.
With a little effort and a never-give-up-attitude, you are going to keep your motivation levels at an all-time high.

Happy Reading!!!

Let Go...

Let go all the troubles bothering you
Let go of those are unkind to you
Let go of those who betray you
Let go of the past to move forward
Let go of those who bring you down
Let go of those who hurt you
Let go all the stresses
Let go those who break your heart
Let go all the sorrows
Let go of those who utilize you for their own sake
Let go all the negative thoughts
Let go unwanted sweat and tears 
Let go of yesterday♥

Have a lovely Monday:)
