Hey everyone! I can't deny how excited I am to post about this new printable collection. I even edited this a few weeks right after I posted my first printable collection. Thank you for your positive comments, they really made my day.

For this collection, I bring the editing to the next level compared to the previous collection. I got the inspiration from Pinterest and Youtube. Most of the pictures in this collection are from google and I edited some of it by myself.

You can print it out on sticker paper or regular A4 paper. I really hope you like it. What do you think of this collection? Yay or nay?

Have a nice day ahead. Enjoy!

Assalamualaikum and hi! As you read the title above, yes I made a special printables for all of you. The reason behind this is that I'm going to further my studies this September, so I think why not I create free printables for my readers and also students out there. I'm just going to make a short post for this one since I still can't get rid of my writer's block yet.

I made three types of printables; general calendar which I didn't put a specific month for it so that it's easier for you to use and basically I just inserted the dates and notes space at the bottom. Next is a daily to-do list and another one is also based on a daily task.

To download, just simply click on the download bars below.






If you have any suggestions for upcoming printables from me (eg: bold colours, watercolour flowers theme etc.) feel free to tell me. More printables to come just for you. Thanks for reading, bye! x




In this post, I want to share with you how I took my flat lay photo in my previous blog post. I'll make it super simple and everyone can definitely do this. Before that, what is flat lay? Flat lay is a unique way to showcase what you own such as your personal items, beauty products, outfit of the day and many more. All of the items are placed and styled on a flat surface and the photo will be taken directly above the flat surface. It's an awesome way to shoot whatever items you want all in one photo. You just need some editings and props that will make your photo 'pop-out' and attractive.

Let's start off with what you need:
1. Phone/Camera
2. Good light source
3. Flat surface
4. Extra prop (flower petals, glitter, make up palette etc.)

Now that you have all of the items needed let's get started. First, you are going to place whatever stuff you want to shoot on a flat surface such as your table, bed or floor. As for me I placed my white bedsheet on the floor and used it as a background to my flat lay. Make sure you have a great light source. You can either use natural light just like I did or a ring light. I placed all of my stuff right in front of my sliding door where the natural was at its best.

Decorate your flat lay with extra props that are related to your main items. For instance, if your main items are stationery then your extra prop can be books, watercolor palette, pens and so on. If you're into makeup products you may use makeup brushes, lipstick or maybe flowers. It depends on your creativity but keep it simple and minimal at the same time, do not overload with props that will make your photo looks messy.

For shooting part, take a picture from directly above your flat lay. Try different angle that looks good depending on the position of your flat lay and your items. Not every item needs to be in the frame. Maybe some of the items can be taken half or quarter as long as your viewers are aware of what type of item you are showing them. Lighting is key, always bare that in your mind.

Next, I'm going to show you how to edit your photo.


EDIT IN SNAPSEED

1. Open your photo in the app. Choose "Tools" and select "Brush".

2. Select "Exposure" and increase it to +0.7. Brush the entire photo. Then lower the exposure to +0.3
    and brush over the items on your flat lay. This may take a while but you'll be satisfied with the
    result *wink

3. This is optional; if your background isn't bright enough you can go to "Selective" tool and tap on
    the area you want to brighten up. Then swipe up and choose saturation. You can increase the
    saturation to make the background brighter.



EDIT IN INSTAGRAM

Open the picture you have edited in Snapseed. Go to edit and choose brightness. Increase it to 24 and sharpen it to 4. You can also edit the contrast, warmth and saturation. For my picture, I just edited its brightness and sharpened it.



Not all pictures are the same, play around with the editing. It'll be very easy once you get the hang of it, believe me. I hope this post can help people out there especially bloggers and Instagrammers to wow your followers with beautiful flat lay on your story and post. Don't forget to tag me if you make one, I'd love to see it and smash that like button <3

Psst! Anyway, I want to do some free printables/freebies for all of you but I really, really need your suggestions. Comment down below what design/type you want. It can be a calendar, memo, header or anything you would like me to make. Thanks in advance!

Bye xoxo


Hi, I'm back again with a new topic. In this post, I will make a review on drugstore products together with my skincare routine. Fyi, I just changed my skincare to Clinelle because I just noticed I've been using the wrong type of skincare this whole time.

Let's start off with the Maybelline Dream Velvet Foundation. I've never purchased a foundation before not because I'm not into makeup but I was scared that when I wear it my whole face will appear cakey so basically I just wear BB cream instead. This is my first attempt at wearing it and it turned out well. I applied this foundation with a damped sponge and it gave such a velvet look on my face. I give this foundation 8/10. Well actually I don't really know how the texture of a foundation should be so I just rate it based on how it felt on my skin.

Next is Silkygirl Big Eye Mascara. This mascara works wonderfully. I really love how it makes my eye pop out just like its name. One thing I really love about this mascara is, it is waterproof yet easy to take off compared to the other mascaras I've tried before. Most of the waterproof mascara will leave you remnants that will stay up to one or two days but not this one. It is so easy to take off just by using your regular face cleanser or micellar water. I highly recommended this mascara to all of you. My rate for this is 10.5/10 haha!

The third product is IN2IT Liquid Matte. When I first saw it in the store, I thought the colour was brown but then when I purchased and applied it to my lips, the colour is actually pink. I was quite disappointed though I was really excited about it at first. However, I really love the matte texture and I also use it as a blusher on my cheeks. Other than that, it long lasts despite the countless time I ate throughout the day. As the person who isn't into the pinkish type of lipstick, I felt some sort of insecure and uncomfortable wearing it but I'll give a 7 out of 10. Lesson learned I should be more careful and aware of the lipstick colour when purchasing it in the future.

MY SKINCARE ROUTINE

1. Cleanser
    A cleanser is very important in order to make sure your face clean and fresh from oil, dust and to
    prevent from breakouts. Usually, I'll wash my face twice daily; in the morning and in the evening
    or before I go to bed. The Clinelle face cleanser makes my face feel very smooth and soft right
    after I used it. Another thing I like about this cleanser is that I just need to use a small amount of
    the product to wash and clean my whole face and I think it can last up to two months.

2. Face mist
    The face mist I'm currently using is the PureSWISS Thermal Spring Water from Clinelle. I use it as
    my toner before applying the moisturiser. Just to feed your basic knowledge, thermal spring water
    comes from a natural situation where water flows to the Earth's surface and minerals are dissolved
    into it as it passes through the underground rocks. This spring water can be used on your hair, skin,
    nail, face, as a makeup setting spray, relieves sunburns, prevents dandruff, razor burns, insects
    bites, cracked heels and many more. I really, really love it because it soothes my skin and leaves
    such a fresh and soft effect on my skin.

3. Moisturiser
    I have an oily skin mainly on the 'T' zone of my face. Before this I just use a normal moisturiser
    which contained oil and ingredients that made my face became more oily, greasy and shiny. Thank
    to those who shared a lot of information about the right type of mosturiser on Twitter, now I'm
    using Clinelle Gel Moisturiser as my daily moisturiser right after applying the face mist. This
    product won't make my face look greasy and I'm so in love with the dewy look this product gives
    me, especially on my nose and cheekbones.

4. Aloe Vera Gel
    When I don't feel like wearing moisturiser at home, I'll use aloe vera gel instead. It's good for your
    skin and it hydrates your skin without making it look greasy or oily. Also, I'll wear it at night
    before sleep. You can also apply it on your hair and nails. Thank me later *wink

5. Bio-oil
    Right after I applied aloe vera gel, I'll apply bio-oil on my scars or on the area where my skin will
    get dry. Bio-oil is not only good for your scars, it's also can be used on dry skin and stretch marks.

6. Fermented rice powder
    Last but not least, I'll apply fermented rice powder all over my face and sleep.

There you have it. In my initial plan I just wanted to do a review on drugstore products that I bought but since I got a question on my sarahah account about my skincare routine, so yeah I included it in this post. Hopefully, I've answered your question dear anonymous. Thank you for reading. Have a nice day. Bye!


Assalamualaikum, it's me again with another update on this blog. I'm going to try my best to tell in detail from the very beginning of the interview. I was struggling to look for blogs that tell
in detail how the interview went and other things that I need to know before attending the interview itself so here I am, writing an entry for those who seek for what kind of questions they might ask and the do's and don'ts during the interview. Since I'm in a very good mood right now while listening to Back To You by Selena Gomez, this might be quite a long entry. Without further ado let's get started!

I attended the interview on 30th May 2018 at 8 a.m sharp and I was the sixth person for the architecture course. I didn't tell the person in charge for the registration that I needed to be interviewed in interior design course because I wasn't really interested in that course so I just got one small paper instead of two and it was written there the number (mine was 6) and what panel you will be interviewed by. Then I was ushered to the lecture hall where we were divided into 3 sections for Quantity Surveyor, Architecture and Interior Design.

In that hall, they showed us the video of School of Housing, Building and Planning but they had to drag the time cause they were having some technical problems. Right after we finished watching the video bamm! the whole hall went into a total darkness. Then we moved to another hall and were given a talk by the Dean of that faculty, Prof. Dr. Aldrin Abdullah.

Oh before I forget, both for architecture and interior design there will be two sessions; drawing and individual interview. First, they brought us to a studio and we were given an eraser, 2B pencil, a piece of A3 paper and a question paper. We were asked to draw a house by a river with a dock for a personal boat for only 45 minutes. I noticed some of the candidates didn't manage to finish up the whole drawing but for me, I had more than enough time to draw the whole thing alhamdulillah.

Next, we were ushered to the waiting room where we will be interviewed individually. I wasn't prepared for the individual interview at all since most of the bloggers stated that they were interviewed in a group of four. "Dang, I'm gonna die shivering the life out of me" that was what I thought in the beginning but as I waited for my turn, they were seniors who came and talked to us about this course in detail and they were sooo nice. Thank god I've finally calmed myself down and entered the scary room.

I was so surprised that I wasn't nervous at all! And that's because all of my panels' faces were so welcoming and they had a big smile drawn on their faces. I had 5 panels altogether and these are their questions (I insert together my answer for each question):

1. Q: Tell me about yourself
    A: My full name is Farah Syazana Bt Wahab and I'm 19 years old. I just graduated from
         MARA College Kuala Nerang in and my secondary school was St George's Girls' School. I
         really like drawing and reading especially English books. One of the reasons I chose this
         course is because I know my main ability is to draw so I would like to pursue my studies in
         the course where I could use my talent. I'm very passionate about what I love. For
         example, I had a problem in understanding certain subjects back in my college, then I
         took the initiative to see my lecturers outside of class and alhamdulillah I managed to
         understand everything. Maybe that's also one of the reasons why I was chosen to participate
         in drawing competitions that were held in Johor and Perak.

2. Q: Why did you choose USM which is very near to your house out of the other universities?
    A: As we all know, USM is one of the best universities in Malaysia. It has top professors and is
         located in the middle of the hectic city and accessible to everything. I believe this kind of
         environment could help me study and practise healthy competition among my coursemates.

3. Q: You can speak English fluently, why don't you go for an English course?
    A: As I mentioned earlier, drawing is what I like to do the most so I want to do what I'm good at in
         the future and as my career. I think this is the right course for me to pursue my studies in.

4. Q: Describe your drawing in Bahasa Melayu (describe based on what you drew earlier)
         *keep on talking and describing your drawing until they stop you or ask another question

5. Q: What are your co-curricular activities in secondary school?
    A: I joined a young entrepreneur club since I was in form 2 and became a president when I was in form 5. I had a team which consisted of 5 head leaders. We then joined a competition in state level and won second place. I also joined JUDO club and I participated in a state level competition.

6. Q: What will you do if you are not accepted in this course?
    A: I will pursue my studies in banking and financial course as you know I have an accounting
         background and that's my strategy for now.

7. Q: Are there any famous architects and buildings that you know?
    A: *I talked about Frank Gehry and his famous building Guggenheim Museum Bilbao and other
           local building, TM Tower

There you go. The answers written were not exactly accurate but I tried my very best to remember every single word I told them. There were a few questions like where do I live, where's your father's workplace and so on.

Now I'm going to give you some tips:
1. For drawing test, do practise to draw a house/building that can suit in any situation. Draw at least
    3-4 types of houses and skyscrapers so that you wouldn't be blur during the drawing test itself.
2. Try to draw as much modern technology as you can and try not to use any ruler when you draw.
3. Do your research on questions they might ask. You can find them on other blogs and collect as
    much information as you can from the USM website.
4. During the interview session, please smile and answer with confidence. They can read you just by
    looking at your facial expression. Be yourself, be honest and do not lie, they can detect it.
5. Sometimes they will doubt your answer by saying "are you sure" or "oh I thought....no?" just stick
    to your initial answer and show your confident.

Wahh I didn't expect this post will be this long hahaha. I hope this might help you to sit for your interview. All the best!

Bye xoxo.



Assalamualaikum hey everyone! I'm finally back from a very long hiatus on this blog. I'm sorry for those who commented on my blog especially in this post, I'll try my best to reply to each one of you.  This post is going to be about everything haha.
Warning: this is a very long post with a lot of pictures, so get ready!

Where have I been? Am I not interested in blogging anymore?
Nope and nope. I am really interested in writing this blog and I'm glad I still do. I was on a hiatus just because of my studies. Basically, I just graduated from matriculation programme. Never have I ever thought of being a part of matriculation students. Well, as there are lots of rumors about how hectic and hard matriculation is and I could say that it wasn't that bad. I survived and that means that they are wrong, completely wrong. I had a lot of fun, made friends from different states, learn new slang and others. So for those who are still in dilemma either to choose matriculation or diploma, I suggest you to take matriculation as the shortcut path that you'll never regret.



That's me right after my last paper, Business Studies.

One of my favorite teachers



Here are some pictures that I wanted to share and there's actually a lot more but I don't wanna make this a super long post so here you go






 







I've learned a lot of things throughout my journey of being a matriculation student.
Lessons learned are:
1. Choose your friends wisely; either they guide you or destroy you.
2. Always make yourself as a priority cause nobody else will
3. Do not get too comfortable with the good grades you've gotten cause once you fall down, it's hard to get up.
4. Speak up what you are not satisfied with and dare to do what you want
5. If they sleep all the time doesn't mean they can't score
6. Never believe them when they said they didn't study
7. Be yourself, if they don't like you let them walk away
8. Some boys suck lol
9. Make as many friends as you can
10. Always think positive of others 

There are a lot of other things as in the lecturers, studies, environment and the society there in my matriculation college that I would like to share here but hmm maybe in the next post. I guess that's it about my lovely matriculation life and for those SPM leavers, if you have any questions about matriculation or anything just contact me through my social media or comment down below, I would love to help you :)

Let's move on to the highlight of this post which is vacatioooonn!

Oh before that shout out to our grab driver (I forgot his name), he brought us to many places before we head to Shahab Perdana. He offered to bring us to the beautiful Al-Bukhary mosque, Zahir mosque, Pahlawan plain and he even offered to bring us to the nearest shop so we can buy foods to eat on our way to Johor.

Pahlawan Plain

 Al-Bukhary Mosque

Zahir Mosque

 
Everyone loves it when it comes to vacation right? And so am I. We went to Tioman Island on the last day of our final examination. Yes, we sacrificed our homesickness to spend our time with friends and beloved lecturer, Mr. Haizan. Started our journey at 8.30 p.m from Shahab Perdana, Kedah to Mersing, Johor Bahru. It was tiring but more to tiring-but-exciting-so-it's-not-that-tiring kind of feeling. This is my first time to go on a vacation to an island other than Pulau Langkawi. This whole journey cost me nearly RM400. It was worth it because the foods served were delicious, the places there were beautiful and clean, the scenery and everything else I could say were perfect. I would love to go there again.


Right after we reached the Tioman Island jetty from Mersing, Johor, we went to our chalet which is 10 minutes away from the jetty and was served drinks by the owner. Later in the evening, my lecturer asked us to try out snorkeling since we were going to the 'real' snorkeling session the next day. He just wanted us to get used to it before going the next day. We literally spent around 3-4 hours in the water and had so much fun. There this one incident where my friend accidentally dropped her goggle in the water and it sunk. The boys and my lecturer tried their best to help her because she will need to pay RM80 if she lost it. Luckily one of the boys managed to dive in and get the goggles for her, fuh!

The next day, we were told to be at the jetty at 9 a.m for the snorkeling session. On my way to the jetty, I got the chance to buy the waterproof underwater phone bag. I told myself, whatever happens, I need to take at least a video of the fish and underwater scenery. Since it was my first time, I feel like taking pictures of every fish and the coral reef but I couldn't do so cause I cannot even press the snap button due to the water pressure *sigh


The boat guy (I forgot his name) brought us to Renggis Island and let us snorkel there for a few hours. The corals there were incredibly beautiful and no words in the dictionary could describe how wonderful God creatures are. They were colorful with different shapes and sizes. The fishes there were so beautiful and tamed. We were allowed to feed the fish with dry bread sold almost everywhere on the island. Once you throw the bread in the water, boom! the whole squad (lol) of fishes will surround you and it was kind of scary when the fishes touched my skin cause there were lots of them.


Next, we were brought to Tomok Island where the corals there were even more and more beautiful than at Renggis Island and the water itself was so crystal clear that you can see everything clearly with the help of goggles of course.


Unfortunately, when we reached there, the weather was quite bad and the waves brought me far away from where we should gather in the water. I tried to go nearer to our boat so that at least if anything happens I could just get into the boat quickly but that didn't happen.

I was left behind and was far away from everyone in the water. I couldn't go nearer as the waves keep pulling me to the opposite way which leads to the middle of the sea. I was starting to get panicked and tried my best to swim as fast as I can but I got tired and called my friend. Luckily, Qila and Syamim came to me and tried to bring me nearer to the boat.

Again, three of us couldn't even swim cause the waves kept pulling us back. I kept saying "pls don't let go of my hand" to my friend hahaha I was bloody scared. So we decided to blow the whistle attached to the life jacket and the boat guy came to the rescue. Weeiuww that was dramatic but scary as heck!

We also get to see the sunset in the evening while taking a lot of pictures. The scenery there was very very nice!




At night we walked around the village there and it reminded me of Malacca where some of the houses there were built traditionally and the hotels and chalet looked so classic. What made this village unique for me is they had their own kind of uber driver. Right after the elderly finished their prayer at the mosque nearby the 'uber' fetched them by riding a motorcycle and it wasn't the regular motorcycle. They upgraded it into a motorcycle that can bring up to 6 people at a time. For kids, they also had their own type of motorcycle with the help of the main motor of a lawn-mower. I don't think you can imagine it hehe sorry I'm bad at explaining.



Long story short, the last day at Tioman Island my friend and I were quite late and rushed to get on the ferry but we still had the time to take our last photo there. Right after we reached Mersing, we ate our lunch and walked to the bus station to say our last goodbye to our lecturer as his bus was earlier than us and we needed to go back on our own to TBS, KL.




We reached TBS around 11 p.m and were in rush to buy a ticket. All of my friends decided to stay in KL except for my friend and I. We decided to go back to Penang at 3 a.m. I was sad though I cannot spend the next day with my friends in KL.

This trip is by far the best trip I've ever joined. Thanks to all of my friends for the sweet and bitter memories together in our college and the trip. They accept me for who I am and I can get all crazy when they were around, that's why I love them so much. To my beloved roommate, thanks for understanding me with my inconceivable behavior, thanks for taking care of me when I was sick, and thank you for everything you have done for me I really appreciate it so much.

I've been through ups and downs throughout my journey in matriculation college and I learned a lot of things that I would never forget each one of them. And because of my friends who encouraged me to create an Instagram account well, I finally have one yay! Do follow me, just click on the icon at the sidebar on your right.

Pheewww what a long post. Thanks to you who are reading this right now, you managed to finish it hahaha. Bye!
