The first post for this year, I got accepted to pursue my degree in Journalism UiTM Shah Alam, being "incognito" for almost a year...I have lost myself recently...and where should I start?

Tree? A simple four letter word,
An illustration of a simple tree drawing would cross your mind, but my definition of tree is different.


There are just days when I feel like giving up, then I thought of why I even started…..
Why do we need  people in our life? Why do they even exist in our life in the first place? Friends? Families? Relatives? Special ones?

Everyone crossed our path for a reason,  some of them entered our lives to teach us lessons, leaving  us nothing but deep wounds and scars, just like the dried leaves falling off from branches of a tree.
Some people entered our life and bring us happiness…but just like the leaves…the happiness only last temporarily, soon flowers will fall too…leaving the twigs nothing but emptiness.

People come and go, we’ll meet new people, time heals and we accept it as a part of the life process. Everyone undergo the same thing over, and over again, leaving people and perhaps end up being left by  other people.

Perhaps I’m tired of holding on…..

The truth is, I miss my friend, the friend who has sacrificed a lot for me, the one who always there for me when I needed someone the most. Things change, we are separated thousands of miles apart….if someone asked me what is the definition of a best friend? There is no doubt to proudly claim that this particular friend who actually saved me when I was at my worst, nobody has taken good care of like this particular person did….but why Allah put this person so far away from me?

Perhaps I need to learn not to rely on people….

Perhaps I was meant to be alone….

I was looking at a dead tree, where the leaves and flowers had long gone, leaving itself nothing but branches and twigs with cracked marks on the bark, it amazed me how the tree can still stand alone even though there is no spark of its life left in that solid body. Its strong roots still clawed the ground firmly. A dead tree, which still held its branches up, standing strong no matter how hard the storm hits, no matter how heavy the rain is pouring and no matter how hot the sun has burnt the earth….that tree would still be there, proudly and courageously stand on its own.

I have to learn to live on my own without depending on people,


Maybe Allah wants me to be that tree, standing proudly on my own with my branches still up high as if I wanted to reach the sky, that tree which stands even though every single leaf and flower has fallen off on the ground just like the people come and go in my life. That tree will stand through rain and shine, because in life….you can’t rely on other people to be happy, it’s you who decide your own happiness. I believe, I’m that tree and I will work on my own happiness and not too depend on people who would just come and go in my life.

Dead tree can be beautiful

Have you seen Angelina Jolie in Maleficent? Gosh I totally have a girl crush on her since the movie, with her flawless make up and not to mention those killer cheekbones had me going "Ohh La La". Have you ever got a crush on female celebrities? Well I do! I always have a crush on Charlize Theron, Natalie Portman, Emily Ratajkowski and the gorgeous Angelina Jolie yes I know I already mentioned her earlier but her Maleficent looks keeps on "haunting" me.



Talking about beautiful faces, everyone wants to be beautiful,feel beautiful and feel good about themselves. Looking at the beautiful faces who walk on the runway, flickering the magazine pages of stunning and flawless looking babes, every girl might start making wishes like "Can I have her look?"

"Can I look like her?"


Nothing is really impossible to be exact, appearance always makes the first impression on how people see us, like they say "Beauty Lies On the Eyes Of The Beholder". We dont just simply dress to impress, it's because we want to look good for ourselves. The Eyes always play the important role to catch other eyes looking at you, Diamonds may be a woman's bestfriend but the real diamond that needs to be shine is the woman herself by making Sephora make up tools as a necessity,more like a life companion!



One of the well-known makeup brands women can find which offers a wide range of mascaras, lipsticks, foundations and more is Sephora. Tired of being a plain Jane? I admit, I get bored looking at my dull and colourless face sometimes, a little colour would be a great way to create a person's image and to start creating a great image is by focusing the eyes. Why? Eyes play a very important role in revealing a person’s true personality. Women who would like to be a little mysterious can attempt for a smokey eye appearance with a touch of Sephora’s long lasting Kohl eyeliner pencil and dash of colours of Sephora IT Smokey EyeShadow pallete will sure catch some eyes that wont even blink as you pass by. 





 
Next is the Angelina Jolie lips! There is a tip to get healthy looking lips is by drinking enough water before applying any lipstick on in order to avoid having chapped lips, beauty comes from the inside too remember? Applying a red colour lipstick would really set the fire alarm to Red Alert! CODE RED! Which could really turn heads into your direction like a magnet and not to mention the fire brigade would have to declare that red lips are just too hot to handle. 

I think her lips are insured, hahah



Each of us have different face features which make us unique and to make them stand out is by doing some face contouring. Everyone is beautiful, you just have to find the right angle to see it and it's easier for others to see your beautiful features by highlighting the best features of yours to be seen with Sephora bronzer or blusher collection. Bronzer or blushers enhances a woman’s cheek bone for a slimmer refined touch. Who says you can't have the look that you always wanted? Anything is possible with Sephora makeup! You have the power to choose on how you look , I bet Barbie would be just plain ordinary Barbara without any colour enhancements on her complexion. 

Charlize Theron sharp features are "sharpened" with bronzer and blusher


I even love to play with a little make up sometimes, I can have the "Bad Girl" look for today and maybe a "Sweet Girl Next Door" for tomorrow!



In the earlier days, movies were just made in black and white, then technicolor worked some magic to make movies livelier with colours. Need to boost up your confidence by improving your look? What do you say? Ready to make a change? Surprise yourself with Sephora!

Today,the last day for me to experience the 19 years of my life before the digit turns 2...and of course with the 0. The day that I never wished for, yes... I'm always afraid that this day would come and I probably wishing the same thing to happen on every 31st of December....that is.. "Can I stay this age forever....?"
Unfortunately time waits for no man, so I had to become like everyone else who undergoes the process that is widely known as GROWING UP.

It's an irreversible process (this is unlike The Life of Benjamin Button story) I'm telling you,hmm.. suddenly I remembered an anti-aging product use slogans "Let's reverse time with......" yea...yea...no matter how much collagen you put on, your age will keep increasing...but look at the bright side~ at least you can keep the"baby face" looks for a longer period :D

There's only few hours left for me to spend, gosh...sounds like I'm almost going to write a will or something. Okay, 2013 was a life changing year for me as I've been through too many incredible experiences like for the first time ever, I successfully fulfill my resolutions. Alhamdulillah, I manage to get good results for both semesters this year, I manage to lose weight ( I want my fit and skinny body back!) and I'm very grateful to achieve the biggest achievement that I ever received in my entire life :), Winning the Perdana Leadership Blogpost.

Ever since I was a kid, I always dream of doing something big, something that no one ever done to change the world and make people remember me....the best way to chase my dream is to WAKE UP and WORK for it. Don't just dare to dream, but dare to make them happen.

Although I successfully fulfill this year's resolution, there are things that I've lost at the battlefield.....like I wrote before, in order to achieve a great success, a great sacrifice must be made. I've lost few friends...., I rarely spend my time online and going out and about like I used to during my old days...I mean younger days (when I was a fool and I didn't take my life seriously). There are doors with a Welcome mat that keep people coming into our lives and there are also doors which lead them out, people come and go unless the ones who are willing to accept you for who you are. We make mistakes and do stupid stuff and screw up things, but that was yesterday,we can't change yesterday but we can make a better tomorrow.



I was devastated at first, but then I start building myself up. There's no use wasting my time being sad when people walked out from my life, I began to appreciate the people around me. I left the "party people" ,spending most of my time at the library and also studying late night at the classroom. Studying was never a passion of mine, but when I think about the life that I destroyed 2 years ago. I learnt my lesson and I meet a group of people who have the same goal as I am, to become successful people.Then something that I never thought of doing suddenly become a "hobby", studying is not that boring. You just have to make it interesting so you'll never get tired of it.

As a person who once believe that there's no such thing as happy endings like the end of every bedtime stories...I began to wonder....If God created Heaven for good people so they can have a happy life eternally, isn't that a happy ending? A perfect happily ever after.

I wasn't a friendly person before, I kept myself out of everyone's picture....I've been on my own for too long because I always find hard to fit in. I'm too afraid of getting hurt again so I keep my distance from people ..... thinking I don't need other people to make me a successful person, it's my own effort to make myself who I am but I forgot one thing, my mom always pray for my success...I still need her in my life, her blessings and her love. Orphans would do anything if they had the chance to hug their moms again....but I used to ran away when my mom wanted to hug me. I pushed people away when they want to get close to me. The word alone, means nothing to me....

Despite of having a worry-free life, I feel that something is still missing...I don't find my happiness. Studying, working out, avoiding eye contact with people are my daily routine...I got tired of doing the same thing everyday...I don't talk to people much...I want to change.

One day I decided to smile to every people I bumped into wherever I walk, and so I did. For the first time ever, I felt satisfied and happy. People smiled back at me and sooner  from smiling to Hi and then conversation begun, then I got new friends besides my classmates and my housemates. Surprisingly they accept me for who I am, I don't have trouble to fit in with people anymore and we become so close like we've known each other for a very long time. They treat me like a family, and make me feel it's like home again. I found my happiness with the ones who accept me for who I am and I don't want that happiness to be taken away from me.

If people walks away from your life, there's always a better replacement awaits. My new resolution for 2014 is just to be happy with the ones I love and get good grades :D
