Best Eid Gifts


Ramadan is one of the five pillars of Islam, it may lasts between 29 and 30 days, based on when a new moon is sighted by local religious authorities. The sighting means Eid can begin.

At the end of the most holy month of Ramadan, all Muslims around the world will spend their time with their family and celebrate Eid Al-Fitr (Festival of Breaking the Fast), on this day Fasting is forbidden. Everyone shows the act of kindness and charity. One of the traditions that Muslim family do is by giving gifts or exchanging gifts with their love ones. For the obligatory act of charity, money is paid to the poor and needy before performing the Eid prayer.

For gifts ideas, I listed below some of my favorites. Please click the image to view the details.

I’m out for a long time and been so busy with a lot of stuff, work, family, household chores, errands and other activities.

It’s almost end of 2015 and reflecting what I’m thankful, well, here is the list:

  1. Thankful to our Almighty and great Creator for all the bountiful blessings everyday.
  2. Thankful to my husband who’s always there supporting me, for being a good partner, friend and colleague.
  3. Thankful to my friends, special mention to my friends Riah and Frances, these two girls always ready to respond whenever I need girl talk, understanding my dramas and flaws.
  4. Thankful to my supervisor, the team call him Kaush, for being very understanding, patient and supportive.
  5. Thankful to my colleague Liza, a new good colleague, for being supportive and cooperative. I’m thankful to the whole team. Good team work, everybody is always ready to support and help to solve problems.
  6. Thankful to the client for being understanding and patient. I love working with them.
  7. Thankful to my mother in law, for being patient and understanding. For all the help of taking care of Aisha.
  8. Thankful to my parents for all the love and always praying for me and helping me taking care of John Roy.
  9. Thankful to my brother and his family, for being there all the time when I need them.
  10. Just thankful to everything, to the universe, life is good.

All praises to Allah (Alhamdulillah).

Best advice I can share. Let’s always remember to be thankful and be grateful that everyday as long as we are alive, we always have the opportunity to change the bad stuff and make good decisions. Forget all the trashy part, negatives, and fears. Life is temporary, show must go on and have no fear, enjoy life and always be kind to everyone. Stop complaining, it doesn’t make sense at all to complain about life.

I pray for the whole world to have peace and healing to all people in pain.

Please add your comments and share your best advice.

Thank you and keep smiling. PEACE!

June Thoughts


junethoughts

Just random thoughts:

1. Your body is a kingdom, the heart is the king. Pure heart, follows pure thoughts and actions. You make sure you always take care of your heart. So reflect, what type of heart do you have?

2. Yes I believe in the saying ” your beliefs don’t make you a better person, your behavior does”. When people discriminate other people because of religion/race/color/education/status etc. because of certain beliefs or principles they follow. Why discriminate? that does make you a better person?

3. Marriage is a wonderful life experience if the couple will work together to make it a wonderful experience. It’s a team effort.  Open communication is the key to understands each other’s points or views. Be forgiving to one another, nobody’s perfect. Don’t expect too much, if one forgets the wedding anniversary then remind the other, it doesn’t mean that the he/she is not thoughtful or caring, it means he/she just forgets.

4. Allow children to express their opinions and not under estimate their ideas, they are minors but they have thoughts and own perception and understanding of things. Just listen, maybe you can add or maybe correct their ideas, but not stopping them of expressing themselves. It’s an information age, children acquire tons of ideas everyday, so as an adult let’s make sure to explain if there are things they don’t understand.

5. Let’s be caring to nature, all elements in the planet are essential for our growth. If we are good to universe then it will bounce back something good to us.

6. Don’t allow your body to be in a deep emotional or depression. It’s not good for your health.

7. Read books or watch something beneficial to your mind everyday. Be careful what you put to your mind, it can alter the way you think. Commercials or advertisements were design to program our minds to think always that we need the product and let’s consume and consume, spend and spend. But think first, is it something you want or something you need? is it something beneficial or not?

8. Let’s not criticize one another, sometimes what you saw from the outside is not the same what’s in the inside. Most of the time, when a person makes mistakes, it doesn’t mean that person understands his/her action, in most cases they are also confuse and have no control about it.

9. Let’s always pray, prayers can move mountains. Whatever your beliefs or religion, when you say your good wishes or think about your good wishes, that’s already a prayer.

10. Enjoy life. Life is an adventure, there will be ups and downs, obstacles or challenges. All these will help you to become a better person.

Thank you for your time and appreciate for dropping by…

Good day always!

Best advise project


best advice 1
best advise 1

First best advise I’d like to share is “Believe in your dreams”.  I learned this advise from my mother. It’s free to make dreams and it’s okay to believe that someday they will come true.

I always dream that someday I’ll be able to travel outside my native country. I even set a time that at the age of 25, it will happen. When I was 24, I applied to get a passport,  it was my first time to apply, and I have no definite destination, but my purpose was that I want to be ready when I reach 25 I’ll be traveling. Then opportunity came, a teaching job abroad, I was able to travel before my 26th birthday.

I realized that with strong faith and good intention, dreams do come true. So don’t limit your dream, have faith and keep believing that all your dreams and wishes will come true.

This “Best Advise” project is all about sharing best advise. I’ll be featuring some of my friends to share inspiring stories or reflections and share their best advise. Once a month, I’ll post one best advise.

Hope everyone will enjoy and will find this blog helpful.

Climbing up High


Hiking or Climbing the mountain is always one my favorite outdoor activities . It was a wonderful experience because I’m with my husband and daughter. When we reached to the top of the Stone Mountain, I felt so great, it’s like winning in an amazing race.

In my reflection, in our journey called life, we always wanted to aim high and when we do our best to go up, we don’t look back, even though it’s hard to go up, we should not give up.

I am thankful to Allah for always giving me the strength to endure the trials in life. Allah, the Exalted, stated in the Quran in Surah Baqarah:

“We will test you with something of fear, and hunger and loss of wealth, and souls and vegetation. And give glad tidings to those who have patience. Those who if in any difficulty or trial, or tribulation occurs to them or happens to them, they say: ‘Verily We are from Allah and to Allah we return.’ They are those who will receive prayers from their Lord and Mercy and it is those who are guided.”

Hope you’ll enjoy the view:
