I must say, two years ago when we decided to move here to London, I was ecstatic. I often told myself, I wanted to live in this city one day. How vibrant, busy and welcoming it felt to any outsider. I think because, you are accepted for what you are. My interpretation of this may be … More This isn’t Goodbye..
Today is @worldhijabday. I grew up in 2 different environments where the cloth that I wore on my head was seen as being ‘weird’ or ‘different’ and sometimes a threat in one world. In the other, it was seen as a measuring instrument of one’s piety. It should be neither of those prejudiced thoughts. … More World Hijab Day & Winter Lights.
Ramblings: have ever been imprisoned with negative thoughts? Its the worst feeling ever. The trick is to look elsewhere for a mood booster, then it wont matter anymore ❤️. Happy weekend lovelies🌹 #londonphoto #preetylittlelondon #photography #photooftheday #takenwithaniphone #londontowerbridge I’ve been trapped in negative thoughts lately.

When these first came out back home in Malaysia, I was so desperate to make it work. Many of us were;we loved the idea of looking good in hijabs-instantly-without the hassle of pins.

Unlike humans, we need to make sense of each other. A few years back I found out that hubs had ‘selective hearing’ and later discovered that… I did too … More Instagram Reposts: Dashes of Colour
Today was a gloomy day . It was cloudy with spells of rain ☔️☁️. Hubs had to go to work early so I had to send and fetch the little ones from school plus also go to my doctor’s appointment. No sunshine can really dampen the mood. Ironically, this didn’t bother my son at all. … More Instagram Repost: red wellies

There may even be a twinge of resent thrown in there somewhere 😅. He was the quiet religious type … More Instagram Repost: the unlikely couple
“Home is where the heart is ❤️” Its one of those quotes that really makes sense to me, since I’ve never really stayed in one place for too long. I’ve only just moved here a few months, but because my “hearts” are here- I feel at home 🏡. But then, shouldn’t home be anywhere and … More Instagram Repost: home and heart ❤️🏡
Beautiful chaos. I love the sound of that. I think October’s beautiful chaos are the falling Autumn leaves. These are the colours that remind me of that. Another thing it reminds me of are the different skin tones. We all know that beauty isn’t skin deep. However, this was easier said than felt when I … More Instagram Repost: Beautiful Chaos and then some
