Assalamualaikum WRT WBT
Hey everyone :) How's everyone hanging? Hope everybody is fine and well. Yeah, yeah I havent been updating. No one knows better than me. Im sorry. Im way out of my schedule right now, but you know what, I need a break anyway. So here goes.
Previous posts have been pretty darn serious ey? So Im going to write something way waaaay different today.. tehee.. :P Oh come on, Muslimah are just the same as any other female. We have high ups and really low downs. We might have different ways in handling our problems, and accepting destiny, and ibadah, and aurat, and... oh ok ok.. There are some very marginal differences, but we are still similar in most areas.
So, what Im going to do today is.. I'm going to list down 10 guilty pleasures of mine.. Interested to know? Keep reading y'all.. Oh ye, they are NOT in order of preference ok. hehe. This is just a random and somewhat bizarre idea I had. Ah, I might need to warn you that this post is result from lots and lots of coffee. Ever seen the story The Robinson's? Remember the judge for the science fair? How hyper she was? Ahaaa.. which is why you see me writing in a way, so unlike me. Hehe.
Ok, so 10 of my guilty pleasures that you might not know about me.
1. Book reading while lying on the bed
And most of the time, if Im not that tired, I just read until I find myself nodding off. That's the only time I would just put the book down, and switch off the lights.
2. Finding a piece of paper and practice my cursive writing
So what I do is just write down whatever I am listening to, or watching. If it's a song, I'll write down the lyrics, if I'm re-watching a movie, I write down the dialog. And well, I'm hoping my cursive writing has improved. Hehehe..
3. Shoes! Shoes! And Boots!
But having feet my size, shoe hunting isn't really something I look forward to. And the money I have to spend on a decent pair of shoes.. oh my.. So I rarely do it, but I LOVE doing it.
I still remember bringing the boots trend to my campus. Who doesn't love a good boot. It makes you look smart with whatever attire you are wearing!
4. Baskin Robbin's Mint Ice Cream
I remember that mak was the only one who liked mint ice cream when we were small. We kept saying that Mak makan Colgate. Hehhe.. I guess, when u were little, the rainbowy colours are more attractive, and you tend to go for the sweet.
Now..? I do have a sweet tooth, but not as intense as before. Now, mild is so much better. So, anyone who wants to make my day, buy me some mint ice cream, preferably BR.. and preferably on Pink Day! 1/2 price!
5. Arnott's Shapes!
Shapes pizza is one of my favourite things of all time. I cannot get enough of it. Thank goodness it's hard to find in JB. Im sure in KL there are tons to go around. But in JB.. those who want to try.. go look around at Aeon Bukit Indah supermarket. In the biscuits section. Usually on the bottom shelf.
But again, they have limited stock. Don't be too disappointed if you don't find it. I have a hard time getting my hands on them too. But if there is no stock, maybe it's becoz I usually buy them all at once! hehhe..
6. Babies! hahahhha
I especially love the fact that they end up sleeping on me. Hehehhe.. Oh well, with cushions everywhere, it's irresistible I guess! hahha
I've been into small kids since I was also a kid. I tot maybe I'd grow out of it, but noooooo.. it's still there. Hehhe..
Thauban, siap la awk nanti time balik this weekend. Habis laaaa.. (that's my nephew by the way. The picture)
7. Belting out in the Car
I particularly like it when I'm on my own, just listening to favourite songs and just belting it out. Haha.
Never knew this about me? Oh well, now you do. You ask if I have a good voice? I seriously do not know. Hahha. But I won't be singing in front of anyone anytime soon. Hahahha..
8. Staying up to watch back-to-back series
I don't do this all the time, but sometimes, when excitement overpowers the tiredness, then you will end up just finishing the series.
This also happens when I get a good book! Hahha.. It's a good thing it doesn't happen that often. If I have a good movie or a series, but no time, I just leave it for another time.
You don't want to start something when ur schedule is full to the max. haha
9. Grocery Shopping!
I like making the list of things to buy, and finding them. I especially love the idea of thinking what to cook and buying the items for the dish! Hehe. I have no idea why.. but it calms me. MAYBE bcoz I actually like cooking. The rule of the thumb is, no rushing. If it's rushing, the joy just slips away and you become stressed out.
So to my neighbours and friends, if you see me at Jusco, that's bcoz I wanna be there, not becoz kene paksa. Hehhe..
10. A beautiful scenery
I used to love sketching. Although Im not very good at scenery sketching, I still loved to try. So anywhere beautiful and peaceful is just perfect. Somewhere calm where all you hear is the wind, and there is green everywhere with different kinds of tones.
I particularly love a scenery with mountains and from a high land where you can see below. Just lovely. I don't need artificial landscapes (I do enjoy them mind you, but nature will do wonders for me).
So ok, those are among my top 10 guilty pleasures. Hehehe. You want to judge, condemn, look at me from a negative point of view, go ahead. I don't mind.
I am but a human with many faults :)
But who wants to live like a robot? Islam is beautiful and never narrow minded. We as Muslims are allowed to do anything, appreciate and love anything, as long as it doesn't breach syara'. So if you are actually getting this judging feeling towards me, istighfar please. Rethink your understanding of Islam.
Peace everyone :) Wassalam
