Just Do It!

After the procurement of those little pins on Monday, I had a few days to do a little bit more research and soul searching. I felt quite eager to initiate my plans earlier than expected simply because it gave me more peace of mind.

I went online to check the correlation of the new initiation/implementation date to see if there were any significant historical happenings. And it turns out that on that very day, our beloved Prophet Muhammad s.a.w's most beloved daughter was born. It was like "liiiightbulbbb...!"

It gave me something to relate to. Lots of times when you're about to embark on something you have control over you would choose a date with some kind of significance, i.e. your 21st birthday, first day of Ramadhan, New Year's Day, an anniversary. I reckon tonnes of people do that, right?

To be honest, it doesn't matter to me what date I choose to actually go ahead with my plans. It's as good a day as any. But knowing that the date I had chosen to do this correlates with such a joyous thing gives added meaning to me.

I do have that little voice inside my head that keeps saying, "Are you sure? Are you sure?", but even if I'm not sure the only way I would silence my doubts is to JUST DO IT! I have my mum's encouragement and support from friends. And no doubt I have Allah's hands guiding me and giving me this innate strength to proceed with my plans so honestly, I have nothing to fear. I have decided I will face the world as it comes and be proud to stand tall in the name of Allah, Insyaallah.

In the meantime, I will continue praying for the strength in my journey through my plans.

So watch this space. Revelations to ensue in due course... =)

The Time I was Flying Blue with KLM

About two months ago I came back from a magnificent travel experience to the UK and Paris. I fully intend to write all about it as it was my very first solo trip ever! But this post is not about that per se. I plan to break down the solo trip experience so that it will not be too heavy in one posting. 
Anyway, I just wanted to share a little bit about my experience travelling for the first time with KLM Royal Dutch Airlines as they were my chosen carrier to take me on this wonderful journey. 
From the get go, I would say it was not exactly all smooth flowing. My own unfamiliarity and inexperience with them probably contributed to the little bumps along the way but thankfully their customer service team is well trained and equipped to help iron out any hurdles or uncertainties that I faced. 
The booking was unique in its own right. The selection of flight dates, times and class was all standard. Then when it came to payment was when I discovered the first uniqueness, or rather the second …

Getting out of Blogging Retirement - Take 2

I've already had some food in my system, and while it's probably on its way to full digestion now, let's try putting in a half decent blog post.

Like I said, after a long, I believe 2-year hiatus from blogging, I had really thought I would let blogging die a natural death and stop just like that. But as things occur in my life, I find myself itching to write again.
Like today. 
First, during lunch time. 
One of my colleagues, let's call her Kay, told us that Hard Rock Cafe has a pretty good lunch set menu. It comes with a salad, main course and dessert, and a refillable drink for the price of a normal main course. So of course we jumped to it. The moment we got to HRC, it was almost a full house! We were lucky not to have to wait in a queue. Those people probably thought to take advantage of the lunch set too. 
Anyway, there were four main courses offered in the lunch set menu; Chicken Marinara, Chicken Pasta, Hamburger and Grilled Fish. I opted for the Chicken Marina…

Getting out of Blogging Retirement - Take 1

Hello Blogosphere!!
It is I, back from an unintended retirement from the blogging world. Actually, I never did intend to hang my blogging shoes as I did my dancing shoes. But after what seems like (a) lack of time due to work, and (b) lack of inspiration to write about things without sounding like I'm whining (phew... that was a long one), I decided that after a year of hiatus, it is high time to put some thoughts to ... what do you call this?... not paper... blank blog page? Well just type out some thoughts.
Yes.
So here we go. 
Starting now.
Right. Now.
Ok. Any moment now. .

. . . .
Maybe I need to eat first. Haha!
