Business and Achievement:

Start now! Simply with your BIG idea!


Quotation from Bukik.com while interviewing Aulia Halimatussadiah a.k.a. Ollie, the founder of NulisBuku.com, and the author of Salsabeela.com:

I want to live life to the fullest. Enjoy every moment. Be in the moment. 

“Saya adalah orang yang saya putuskan saat ini”. (My translation: "I am is what I decided to be").

Bahwa kehidupan
menawarkan beragam petualangan tapi pada akhirnya sikap dan keputusan
kita yang menentukan siapa diri kita. Setiap kejadian hidup akan
menawarkan pilihan, dan kitalah yang menentukan pilihan akhir cerita
hidup kita.


Because I am a mother of two boys, I always love reading about parenting issue. An article by Hanzky on MommiesDaily.com reminds us about one of the most important things we should do as a parent:

Have You Been Listening with Your Eyes?


little girl came home from school with a drawing she’d made in class.
She danced into the kitchen, where her mother was preparing dinner.

“Mom, guess what?”, she squealed, waving the drawing.

Her mother never looked up.

“What?”,  She said, tending to the pots.

“Guess what?” The child repeated, waving the drawing.

“What?” the mother said, tending to the plates.

“Mom, you’re not listening”

“Sweetie, yes I am”

“Mom”, the child said. “You’re not listening with your eyes”.

Don’t we hate it when we talk to someone and his/her eyes are not
looking at us? We hate it because makes us feel ignored and less

'Hiking' Look

Hijabi Fashion Week Nov 2011 - Day 2 

Theme: Hobby/Recreation

I love to hike... Hiking the hill, the wood, the sand dune...

I enjoy the scenery surrounds me while I am hiking. It's so refreshing and made me appreciate the nature and its beauty God creates.. and for that, I am so thankful.

This is one of the outfits I wore during my "hiking time".. ;)

Style Tips and Inspiration Weekly Roundup

Good Day, Lovelies!  How is your day?

This past week has been a hectic one for me. Busy with my two sick sons (but now they have fully recovered), busy with my relatives who visited our house, and busy with neighbours whom I gave a hand to in regards to the wedding event they held in their house (here in my area, after the Eid, usually many people got married).

And, it is a common thing or a tradition we do here, in my village, that when a neighbour held an event in their house, such as a wedding ceremony, an "aqiqah/qurban" for welcoming new-born baby, a funeral, "pengajian" (a Qur'an recitation), etc., all the surrounding neighbours must "give a hand" as long as they could to the 'event-holder'ed family/neighbour (the host) in preparing the event. It is called "rewang" in Javanese language, means "to help, or helpful to each other".

During all of these, I still could manage my time to visit my blog and search the web. So, these are what I found during the past week.. Not many, yet interesting and inspiring, thus I would love to share with you.

My favorite quotes of the day:

"The minute you stop making mistakes is the minute you stop learning." – Miley Cyrus

"You must do the thing which you think you cannot do." - Eleanor Roosevelt

All of these tips and quotes really inspired me and have made my day...

Just a little story from me:

Recently, finally I've been mastering a car-driving skill (hmm.. not really a real Master definitely.. hehe.. and pleeeeeaaaase... don't laugh at me, okay?). Yes, I just had a skill and a gut to drive a car. For my age, perhaps this is too late, and for that, I feel very embarrassed.

But, on the other hand, this is really a big achievement for me, and I'm proud of myself, because I thought I would never ever could drive a car.

Before, I was too scared and did not have a bravery to do that. I was hit by a motorcycle when I was a little girl, and my leg broke because of it. After that experience, even crossing the streets was so fearful for me. Now, it's different. It is amazing how we change...

So, when I found those two quotes, I realized how 'true' the quotes are.. That is exactly what I have been struggling on... to try to do things that I think I can not do and do my best to not become discouraged or dishearten if, during the learning process, I do mistakes.

Psst.. and here is another thing that I think I cannot do but I wish I can do it well... It's speaking in front of public.. haha :)

Okay then... Hope you enjoy all I shared with you as much as I do.

Have a wonderful days, Lovelies!
