Raya 2014 in Photos

Had a blast! Ate a lot! Drank a lot! Avoided "when are you getting preggy?" questions a lot!

First day raya with the hubs' family! 

#cheesyselfie for raya's #ootd

BFF came for second house raya. Which is rare because being a doctor, she is not always around during Raya. And to think next week she is being posted in Saratok! :( Gotta find someone else to go on a sushi binge. 

Couldn't decide what to wear so I wore a black maxi dress with a male kimono top tied with a gold obi-like waist ribbon.

Family photo shoot day with hubs's family! #celcomblue

Wore my instant shawl from for the first time. Have a love-hate relationship with it really. XD

Visited BFF's baby Mayya TWICE. And most probably will be visiting again 23847923479274 times. LULZ.

Weird faces for Raya. Bottom right is my favourite. Obviously. PFFTTT.

Went to visit pregnant EVA with sister in law with hopes that her pregnancy is contagious. Wish me luck guys! And lots of prayers for us too! :3

Mum turned 51 on 5th Syawal! Okay so it looks 15 in the photo. XD

With adorable Alisya who got excited seeing herself in the phone's front camera. 8D

Not so excited when my younger sister in law joined in the photo. "WAIT. WHO DAT?" D8

Visited Iyori-chan and bid farewell to our work colleague and my fellow Japanese Language Teacher, Mayu Sensei. Iyori-chan, Y U SO GRUMPY. Haha!

How was YOUR raya? (^_^)

TFIOS Special Early Screening




Basically, the tickets started selling on the 2nd of June, and immediately during Sahur, I purchased mine!

It was a full house show by the way, and you could feel the sense of excitedness in the hall since obviously everyone there had read the book beforehand. The special screening was only done on Saturday and Sunday. The actual release date will be around the next 2 weeks. Felt so happy being among the first in Kuching to watch it!

Fangirled a lot over the posters of course:

The movie was BEAUTIFUL. They managed to stay true to the book about 95% of the time and I loved EVERYTHING. I cried about every 15 minutes for every sad scene they shown. By the end, I can hear in the hall that I wasn't the only one sobbing into a tissue. I will not give away any spoilers in case you haven't read the book yet.

But please, do pick it up, it is a light read and you could probably finish it in about a day to 3 days. It is THAT good.

#waybetterlovestorythanTwilight duh.

Book Review - The Fault in Our Stars

After watching Teens React to The Fault in Our Stars Trailer, I just had to get the book and see what all the hype was about. The book is apparently the next big thing after the Divergent series. It is a teen story, so I jumped on the bandwagon since I like light reading materials.

So at the international terminal of KLIA, while waiting for my flight to Tokyo (which I really should blog about later! Fingers crossed, bahah) I stumbled upon the last copy of the book at the book store and immediately snagged it (along with a copy of March Cleo) to read on the trip.

Now, I am embarrassed to say that I didn't actually read it until the very last train ride to the airport on the last day of my trip. Because it was an hour plus journey from Asakusa station.

And wow.

I could not put the book down! I was smiling, giggling, frowning all my way through the book. It is a very awesome read! Different than the norms. I'd love to explain the story but I'll just quote from Wikipedia since it doesn't have any spoilers there.

"The Fault in Our Stars is the fourth novel by author John Green, published in January 2012. The story is narrated by a sixteen-year-old cancer patient named Hazel, who is forced by her parents to attend a support group, where she subsequently meets and falls in love with the seventeen-year-old Augustus Waters, an ex-basketball player andamputee.
The title is inspired by a famous line from Shakespeare's play Julius Caesar (Act 1, scene 2). The nobleman Cassius says to Brutus, 'The fault, dear Brutus, is not in our stars, / But in ourselves, that we are underlings.'"

The author is actually a YouTuber, one of the vlogbrothers. Oh and even more awesome news is that a movie on it will be out soon! *squeal*]

Check out the trailer:

I rarely would review a book, but this was just too good not to. I am looking forward to read other books by the same author, since reviews about them have been amazing! I just might have found a new author to be obsessed with! Next on my list:

The Divergent Series
The Hunger Game Series

Can you see my pattern here? Movie books make me happy because they help me visualize them more. Haha. And who says teen reads are only for teens? Pfffttt.

Okay? Okay. 

p/s: That's a quote from the book, btw. lol.

Last Saturday, the world was shocked by the news of the disappearance of Malaysia Airlines flight MH370 which disappeared from the radar at 2.40am en route from KL to Beijing.

Search parties are doing their very best to search for the plane and bring everyone home. Nothing is confirmed yet. STOP the rumours. STOP the speculations. And STOP the assumptions. And definitely STOP joking around about it. 

Miracles happen once in a while, when you BELIEVE. 



Stuff That You Ought to Know About Too... :p
