lets read

I used to read novels back in high school. Be it in english or malay. For english novel, I found it really helpful in improving my language, vocab and whatnot. Of course communicating in that language also helps. Not a problem there because I studied in a school with a multiracial students. We use english in dialy basis.

Then comes university life where it is 100% malays and bumiputera. A place that make you look like an alien if you talk in english. People will look at you like you're from the Pluto. Sad but true. Day by day, I can feel that I'm losing the mojo in writing and practising the language. I can no longer construct a flowery sentence.

Now, I think it's time for me to start reading, again !! Yes you can see my determination with that exclamation mark. haha. Many people tell me that they love Sophia Kinsella's novel. She's the writer of Devil Wears Prada and Confession of a Shopaholic.

As a start, I chose "Can You Keep a Secret?" by the young writer. Read it until chapter 9 already. I love they way she writes and how she puts words into a sentence.

I'm sure I won't stop with only one book. Gonna get other collections later because MPH one utama is having a book fair now. Bought it at 30% off. Great deal.

I know I shouldn't be reading novel when the final exam is just in a week -.-'

books = boring?
lets talk fashion. hehe

It's bright and sun-shining here, Selangor particularly. No idea how it's like in other states. I find that top made with soft chiffon material is the the best choice as it is so comfortable and breezy. I don't sweat much in it.

I love the color combo of my outfit to class today. My dark black hair matches the cardigan. That skinny belt matches my handbag. And my trousers matches my pump heels(not in the picture).

top : Project Love
belt : Project Love
bag : Nine West
trousers : Zara

hair products

I have a natural straight and black colored hair. I straightened my hair when I was in form 2 although it's already straight, curled it up twice when I was in form 3 and 5. Then chopped it off and tried few styles from bob cut to bangs. Now I wanna keep it long and maintain it with once a month treatment.

My hair regime is simple. I don't use conditioner or serum to moisten it. Just shampoo. Very simple.

But my hair fall problem is getting worse as it grows longer! grrr.

I think it's about time to use conditioner and other hair products. Just bought few dove new line hair products. Intense Repair Shampoo, Intense Repair Conditioner, Intense Repair Overnight Treatment and Leave On Cream. Shall try these for few weeks and see the result.

my current obsession is headband

making it work

Through out this week, I'm amazed on how my brain had finally started to function normally. The next thing I knew, I was on my bed with piles of notes. I mean, on bed studying not sleeping, duhh. Maybe because my brain freaked out about progress test on friday(just now) and finals in 3 weeks time while my body is somewhere in heaven. hehe. It went well. Better that previous tests. I guess to choose between a true or false answer is harder than writing an essay.

Happy holidays to uitm students. In shah alam to be exact. I'm expecting less cars, no traffic jam in the campus, ample parking space so that I dont have to double-park my car or to push dirty cars that block mine, less students fighting over food at the cafe

2 more weeks of classes to go.

One reason why I love staying in this residential area is because of the people. 70% or the residents are foreigners from different countries who are working in Malaysia. Upstairs mat saleh, downstairs mat saleh, groups of mat salehs on your way to swimming pool, everywhere.

The best thing about them is their politeness toward strangers. Do you say a simple 'hye' or 'morning' to strangers? I bet you don't because we especially girls were raised with the mind set 'do not have any eye contact with strangers. just walk straight. potential flasher is everywhere' hehe.

Unlike them. Just imagine this. You are walking downstairs, and there's this mat saleh greets you 'good morning girl'. One simple greeting can turn your cranky morning mood to a better feeling and you will eventually start your day with a smile. Lovely isn't it?

It seems impossible to apply this within us. There must be hidden intention when a stranger guy smiles towards a girl or the other way round. Three possible scenes that are expected to happen.

1) That girl will spontaneously look behind just to make sure that the guy is smiling to her.
2) That guy will get 'do i know you' look from that girl as she squinches her eyes.
3) The next thing you know, you got smacked in your face by her bf.

This kind of mind set that need to be changed among us.
