Allah Ada.

It just a random story. 


"Weyh, jom keluar makan," Sofia melangkah masuk ke dalam bilik kawannya itu. 

"Tamau," Mirah menarik hujung selimut, menutup kepalanya. 

"Yang asyik berkelubung dengan selimut ni kenapa?" Sofia cuba menarik selimut Mirah dari terus menyelimutinya. 

"Aku nak tidur," Mirah menggenggam erat selimutnya. 

"You have been sleeping for the whole day and it is almost dinner, bro!" Sofia dah menjerit di telinga Mirah. 

"You go ahead la. I don't feel like eating," Mirah menolak ajakan Sofia. 

"Kau kenapa? Boyfriend tinggal?" 

"Gila kau! Mana aku ada boyfriend," lekas Mirah bangun, melempar bantal peluknya kepada Sofia. Cepat-cepat dia kembali ke dalam selimut.

"Habis tu?" 

"I am dying."

"You should. You are not eating anything since last night and you are expecting to be alive?" 

"Get out," Mirah merengus dari dalam selimut. 

"I am here. Allah too."

Sofia meninggalkan Mirah sendirian. 

......

"Sofia..?"

Allah ada. Take care.

Nano White Skin Care Products (Omega Day Shield and Cell Moist Whitener)

Assalamualaikum everyone.. :)

Selamat Hari Raya.. Walaupun dah terlambat.. Hehe.. :D

Ok.. Hari ni, saya terasa nak buat review tentang satu produk penjagaan kulit wajah yang saya dah guna selama tiga minggu ni.

Walaupun terasa pelik bila buat review produk sebab sebelum ni tak pernah buat, saya rasa, ada baiknya jugak kalau saya buat review pasal benda ni. Just to those who might need some help in finding the right skin care product. :)

And yes..everything happens if Allah wills it. I am just suggesting you guys based on my experience. :)



On the first week before Raya, I purchased the Nano White Skin Care products. After a while not changing anything of my skin care products, I decided to try Nano White as my skin gets better after I tried the Omega Day Shield for my sunscreen.

My previous sunscreen, Biore Perfect Milk seems to irritate my skin as loads of things came up to my face after using it. So I stop using it and give it to Adik, who found the product quite good with her skin.

So, today, I would like to tell you guys whether the products work on me or not. :D

The trial set.
First of all, if you guys are up to try this product, I think it is better for you to purchase the trial set first. Some products are just good for the others but some just not. I heard loads of disappointments from the customers but still I guess, Nano White works well with my skin.

This pack lasts for almost more than two weeks. You can purchase two set of this once so that you an use it for the whole month. The regular set consists of big-packed products which can lasts for almost a year, for me. So I won't recommend the big-packed size item if you are just about to try it.

The trial set costs only RM16 (less than that, I think). The price is quite cheap this time. I bought it on a promotion in Watsons. I was thinking about buying the facial wash but to see this trial set on the rack, I gave myself a chance to try the whole set itself. Mama always said that a product will work much better with its own set.

But this is the skin color one, mine is just a regular almost invisible white cream.

This first product I tried was the Omega Day Shield. With SPF 50++.. To those who doesn't really wear the sunscreen, please watch this video and I hope it can change your mind. :)

It just sunscreen la.. Kalau pakai pun tak nampak sangat dekat muka.. So, its ok la. Bukannya pakai mekap tebal pun.

Omega Day Shield just improved my skin better. It protects my skin from UV, of course, what else the sunscreen for? Hehe..

Ok.. The product claims that it can help minimize stubborn pigmentation. I guess, it works. Tak banyak pun, sikit je but at least, it does what it say. Most of my scars seems to be faded away from my face.

My skin easily gets clogged and produce some whiteheads on my cheeks and some on my forehead while I was using the Biore sunscreen. But when I use this one, I can say that there is no new whitehead anymore. So yeah..it does not clog pores. :) #Alhamdulillah

I used this product whenever I am going out in the day. I get dark easily and of course, it is an uncomfortable thing for me to go outside without any sunscreen on.

But, the thing is, this product claims to have a noticeable result in just 3 days. And what can I say about it is, it just doesn't happen in my case. Maybe my skin is way too dark that the product can't work well in just three days but anyway, after 3 weeks (instead of 3 days, I can see my skin is improving).

Let's  move to another product of this set.




It is the Cell Moist Whitenor. The moisturizer. I have been looking for a new brand of moisturizer to rid away my old Hazeline moisturizer (which again, irritates my skin). It just not that good with my skin, maybe. Whiteheads keep coming out and the sunscreen doesn't give much help so I stop from using those old creepy products of mine.

But this is a good product. I have been using it for three weeks and it doesn't annoy my skin. It is a watery structure product and it feels so good when you apply it on your face. It gives me a moist skin after I apply it on my face. It will not leave you with an oily skin. Well, at least not for me when I used it in a correct proportion which means, I only spread a thin layer of it on my skin.

I have tried to spread a bit thick layer of it on my face and it sticks. When I woke up from my sleep, my face feels very sticky.

I used it twice everyday, once in the morning before I go out from the house with the Omega Day Shield and once in the night before I go to sleep. I always look my face in the mirror after I woke up from my sleep and I found my face gets prettier everyday. Hehe.. :D

If you asking for any whitening affect, sorry, this product doesn't have that. But Mama said that my skin gets a little blushing effect after using this product. "Muka Kakak nampak pink la hari ni." Although I am not using any blusher on my cheeks. :)

It doesn't cause any breakouts too. :)

Ok.. That's it for now. I have other things to do. I might continue my review on another post later on. :)
Again, I repeat, things happen if Allah wills it. And this is just one of the ikhtiar to take a better care of your skin. It is nothing wrong with taking care of you facial skin, instead, it even improves your self-esteem.

I met a lot of people who doesn't care about their face at all. They never apply anything on their face before go out from the house. They just let their face gets burn under the sunlight. They don't even care to moisturize or wash their face regularly.

And they end up to put on loads of make-up to cover their flaws. It is better if we take a good care of our facial skin starting from now on so that, later, it will not cause us bigger problems and we will never need tons of make-up item to cover up everything on our face.

Trust me.. I have been there, being the one who never cares about the skin care. I end up to be darker and my facial skin gets worst. Pimples and whiteheads almost everywhere. The scars are even more disappointing. Huhu..

So I am in the process to heal my skin and I hope you guys will join me soon..

May Allah ease you, guys.. :) 

Oh yeah.. Don't forget to pray for our brothers and sisters in Egypt. And may the truth wins. :)

English Essay for SPM : By Working On It

Assalamualaikum...

I had been weeks since my last update. #pergh!

I will not brag about how busy I was for the last few weeks and so on. I am here because I would like to write an essay for the SPM candidates. I had write an essay before which is the one I used in my SPM. Since that, there are lot of SPM candidates asked me to copy my essay for their homework, assignment and even for their revision.

#Alhamdulillah At least, the essay helps few of you out there. :)

This story here is a little bit mixed up of Kang Gary's (Leessang, a rap artist) and Michelle Phan's (professional make-up artist, maybe).

By Working On It

"Welcome to The Twin House Cafe, Miss. If you wish to meet the owner, for now, she is not around," the waitress uttered amiably. I was a little bit perplexed. Realizing what was happening, I smirked at this long-legged 18 years old waitress. She was wearing coral for her lips and peach for her blush. The colors were perfectly match.

I paced into the sunny colored coffee house, my favorite color. The same color I used when it comes to my make-up. The incident with the perfect look waitress made me realized how small I was. Almost the same happened to me a couple weeks ago.

"Can I see The Twin?" requested a young man to me in this warm coffee house. The question awed me for a moment. Just like the one had happened between me and the waitress.

The Twin is the name for a pop duo consists of two females, Hae Jin and Hyo Joo. Hae Jin is the vocalist while Hyo Joo is the rapper. A little bit difference between these two sisters was Hae Jin is the one who always look very stunning while Hyo Joo is just an intermediate person with no much lovely things about her. Even the long-leg waitress looks so much prettier than Hyo Joo.

I sat on my daily seat and table. The waitress came to me and dropped a cup of cafe au lait in front of me lightly just the way I asked her to. She curved an attentive smile with a welcoming look in her eyes. I nodded at her and took out my new Macbook Air. The air in the coffee house was filled with The Twin's songs.

Once I turn on my laptop, the screen displayed The Twin's wallpaper with both of the singers smiling ear to ear. I observed the wallpaper, no matter how similar The Twin look alike, everyone can see the obvious difference between both of them. One must be looking more alluring than the other one.

"Here is the bill, you can pay at the counter later," the long-leg waitress came up to me with the bill while I was browsing for some beauty tips. I gave her a plain look, raising one of my eyebrows.

"What are you doing?" Hae Jin emerged from nowhere with her bouncy blowout hair. She have a light warm color for her shade.

"I am giving her the bill, Miss," the waitress answered with a fearful tone in her voice.

Hae Jin delicate hand give a slap on the waitress' unblemished face. Automatically, my hand covered my mouth from making any sound. I glared around. Luckily, the nearest customer was the man with a cap and headphone on. No one was paying attention to us since my table was a little bit to the edge of the coffee house.

"She is Hyo Joo! How can you asked her to pay for her drink in her OWN coffee house?" my sister's voice was low but sincerely in forced tone. Her eyes glared at the waitress hatefully.

"I am sorry, Miss. I was wrong. I am new here, working part time. I have no chance to meet Miss Hyo Joo yet," surprising me, the waitress answered, trying to defense herself - although, it did not making any sense at all!

"Insane is the word and you are fired," Hae Jin pointed at the back of the coffee house, indirectly, asked her to take off the uniform and walk away from the coffee house.

I said nothing at all. Maybe I was a little bit wicked or feeling revengeful towards this girl who works in my coffee house without knowing me at the first place. Or maybe, I was envying her for her gorgeous look, just the way I felt towards Hae Jin sometimes. But as much as Hae Jin, this lovely looking waitress seems to be innocent, pure and lovable that I couldn't hate her in a long term.

"Do you have Sophie's number?" I asked Maria, one of the trainee in The Twin House Cafe, a week later.

She nodded and without any reluctance, write me down Sophie's number on an empty paper.

"Miss, I think it will be very nice of you if you can give her job back. She did not unrecognized you on purpose. She just 18 and really need a job to help her sick little sister. I bet she have no time to turn on the TV or radio or even read a magazine to get to know you," Maria told me, hopefully. Maybe she was hoping for me to give Sophie's her job back since I asked for her phone number.

"I won't give her the job back," I murmured to myself as I walked away from Maria.

"Yes, Miss Hyo Joo. I am so sorry about the incident earlier. Maybe I was too careless about my employer. I learnt the lesson. I am so sorry," she stated sorrowfully. Her eyes stared down to the table as if she was looking at her foot beneath the table.

Today, she was having tan color for her cheek and lighter for her eyes. Again, it was perfectly matched!

"Do you really need a job?" I asked her, wondering. The idea in my brain was just too excited to jump out.

"Yes, Miss."

"Can you be my personal beauty adviser?" and that was when her carrier started.

After a couple of years being my personal beauty adviser and succeed on regaining my confidence with a healthier facial skin, prettier make-ups and gorgeous looks, Sophie's hidden talent made me hired her as my personal makeup artist. Now, Sophie is working to build her name in the industry by creating her own beauty products with my co-operation. By two years to go, Sophie and I will have a brand on our own.

"You know, things can really work when you start working on it," Hae Jin whispered to my ear as we climbed the stage to take our trophy for The Special Twin Award.

Now, here I am, telling you a story how a waitress like Sophie turn into a professional make-up artist and a rap artist like me can turn into a businesswoman by working on it.

Mistakes, I Learnt from Them

Assalamualaikum. 

Semalam, agak lewat saya kembali ke rumah saya di Akasia. Bermula dengan pertemuan bersama seorang sahabat lama saya, menjadikan saya terleka berbual.

Saya, walaubagaimanapun, sebenarnya, agak senang dan lega dapat berbual dengan sahabat lama saya itu. Kebetulan pula, saya telah habis mengulangkaji pelajaran untuk kuiz keesokan harinya (which is today).
Banyak yang saya dengar dari beliau.



Bermula dari kisah sahabat kami yang baru sahaja pergi bertemuNya, sehinggalah ke cerita-cerita tentang masa silam saya yang seolah-olah masih kekal kukuh di sana.

Sungguh. Saya ingatkan dah habis tentang tu!

Sahabat saya mula bercerita. Bagaimana sesetengah pihak tak pernah melupakan kesalahan saya dulu.
#merepek

Everyone does mistakes.
Kehidupan saya, sejujurnya, full of mistakes!

Dari kehidupan saya di Islah, di SHAMS hinggalah habis SPM, akan ada sahaja drama-drama di mana saya melakukan kesalahan dan kesilapan besar dalam hidup.

But I am proud to admit that! Kerana tak ramai yang diberi peluang untuk membuat kesalahan dan belajar daripadanya seperti saya.

Setiap kesalahan yang dilakukan, adalah satu pengajaran yang membentuk saya hari ini. Dan lega saya katakan, pengalaman pahit itulah yang mengajar saya lebih lagi.



Kini, hari ni, saya mulakan perjalanan saya sebagai orang baru. Orang baru dalam medan masyarakat sebenar, orang baru dalam mencari tarbiyyah.

Tak sangka, masih ada lagi otak-otak cliché dan tipikal di luar sana yang seronok mengungkit kisah silam saya dan dijadikan bahan perbualan. #heh

Dare you guys to talk about me when you have the slightest idea of who I am!

Mengapa kisah lama diungkit sedangkan saya dah terlalu berbeza dengan diri saya yang dulu.

Kata orang, dulu saya sangat kasar. Bahasa yang saya gunakan sangat tak dapat diterima. Saya dengar smeua teguran tu tapi entah kenapa, saya tak boleh nak terima.

Tapi, sebaik sahaja saya keluar dari sana, saya terima teguran itu dan sejak itulah, saya didik diri saya agar perkataan-perkataan kasar dari mulut saya itu dicampak jauh.

Now, ask my friends, do I used ‘aku-hang’ frequently? No! Instead, saya sendiri dah lama tak guna the word of ‘aku’ and ‘hang’. Bila saya bercakap dengan kawan-kawan dari sekolah lama saya sekalipun, saya gunakan gelaran ‘ana-anti’ sepertimana yang saya gunakan dulu di sekolah.



Kata orang, dulu saya begini begitu.

Ya.. Memanglah begitu dulu.

Tapi, sekarang, saya dah  belajar. Banyak belajar dari benda yang saya sebut sebagai kesalahan.
Malahan saya rasa, pandangan serong sesetengah pihak terhadap saya adalah sejenis diskriminasi yang bermula daripada kesempitan pemikiran.

Maafkan saya andai kata ayat saya kali ini terdengar sedikit emosional dan agak marah. Memang pun! Saya tak faham kenapa mereka ini masih nak sangat menyebut cerita-cerita lama saya sedangkan saya sendiri, dah berbeza dari masa silam saya.


Saya harap sangat mereka-mereka yang masih bercerita dan masih menganggap saya ini sebagai orang yang sama itu membaca tulisan saya di sini. Biar mereka tahu saya tak rela pun terus diberi tanggapan yang sama.



Pesanan-pesanan yang diberi kepada saya kadangkala terdengar ridiculous. Pandangan-pandangan yang diberikan kepada saya juga terasa pedih. 

Mereka tidak tahu apa yang terjadi pada saya sebaik sahaja saya keluar dari 'sana'. Mereka tak follow-up cerita-cerita saya selepas saya tinggalkan tempat tu. Mereka tak tahu. 

Jadi, mereka sepatutnya sedar, mereka tiada hak untuk bercerita perkara-perkara yang kurang baik tentang saya! 

Kerana di dalam hati saya, hanya Dia yang tahu, sesungguhnya, Dialah yang Maha Mengetahui apa yang berada dalam hati setiap hamba. 

He listens to my prayers and change me from who I was. He give me the chance to prove that everyone deserves a better life. 


Buat mereka-mereka yang tidak pernah buat sebarang kesalahan dan hidup dalam penuh kesempurnaan, saya ucapkan tahniah! Tak ramai orang seperti anda. Dan, kekalkanlah kesempurnaan hidup anda sekalian. Moga-moga Allah memberikan yang terbaik untuk kalian. 

Buat mereka-mereka yang sentiasa membuat kesalahan. Pastikan anda tahu dan faham mengapa anda melakukan kesalahan-kesalahan itu. You can always blame everyone else. Tak ramai orang seperti anda. Moga-moga Allah memberikan kalian kefahaman yang lebih mendalam. Don't afraid to change to be a better person from what you had done in the past. 

Buat mereka-mereka yang masih di tahap yang sama, yang tidak mengalami sebarang kesempurnaan atau melakukan sebarang kesalahan sepanjang hidup, saya cadangkan, anda pergi, dan cari sesuatu untuk dibuat dengan hidup anda. Belajarlah untuk mengenali hidup dan jangan asyik menunding jari pada saya. 

:P 

May Allah bless us all.

:)
