Do Things That Make You Happy

Haiii *senyum*

"Omigosh omigosh cantiknyaaa dia pakai shawl. I should wear shawl too sebab rasa tak updated dengan fashion nowadays (gitew). Nak jadi hijabster jugek"

Lalu pergi membeli shawl(s) dan pashmina(s). Pulang ke rumah, melihat pula tutorial pakai shawl dan yang sewaktu dengannya. Dan bila dah pakai shawl, walaupun rasa panas rimas serabut, rasa bangga sebab orang cakap "cantiknya youuu, hot stuff lah sekarang. hijabster gitu".

The question is; do you happy? truly happy for making others impressed with you?

"Pergh, cool nya dia menyanyi. Famous pulak tu. Hmm nak try menyanyi jugak lah. Nak jugak jadi famous supaya dapat membeli famous amos. Asyik terperap je dalam bilik, macam mana orang nak kenal dan perasan kewujudan aku kat maktab/uni ni "

Lalu proses mempopularkan diri sendiri pun bermula dengan menyertai pertandingan nyanyian walaupun sudah terang lagi bersuluh suara tak berapa nak sedap, takpe, asalkan aku naik stage and then orang kenal aku then boleh upload kat Facebook. Gitew.

The question is: do you happy? :)

I asked several people about this topic and these are some respondents of my questions :-

"Do things that make you happy means just do the things that you like. I am happy with people who understand me and I don't have to pretend in front of them, like my family" -Dayang.

"Things that make me happy are spending my time shopping, watching kdramas and spend time with those that I love and cherish. I am happy just the way I am" -Cassandra

"I am happy when I accomplish my goal" -Sue Zhen

"I define 'do things that make you happy' as you do something based on your preferences and interest rather than 'I want to be accepted' feeling. Things that make me happy is when I devote myself to God and being His instrument in helping others" -Farhana

"Do things that make me able to be who I am without being someone else. Things that allow me to spread out my idea and my feelings." - Syafiqah

"I believe it means to always prefer doing things that you are passionate with, because doing something that we love is somewhat happiness. I am happy when sharing some beautiful moments with my family, my friends and my loved ones" -Syafiq Haiqal

The main point here is, do something to impress yourself, not others. Memang kita akan rasa orang lain sangat cool bila dia pandai berfesyen, bila dia update status facebook dapat banyak like, bila dia main gitar sangat hebat or bila dia berkata-kata dia sangat adorable. But I believe, by being yourself and do your passion, you can be happy.

I always remind myself to be satisfied with what I have eventhough kadang-kadang selalu fikir macamni;

"Coolnya Khadijah main tenis. Nak jugaklah turun petang-petang main tenis. Kalau tak, rasa left out. Classmates ramai yang main tenis"

"Nana and Hana selalu baca novel English. Nak jugaklah baca novel English. Kalau baca novel BM rasa tak cool ohhh".

"Dia ada S3 mini hmm nak bawak keluar duit blog ah nak beli S3 mini"

And I have to admit that I sometimes try to do what others are capable of. Tapi lama-lama this kind of habit sangat membosankan sebab hakikatnya I can't feel the true happiness.

Takpelah kalau awak seorang je yang minat puisi dalam kelompok awak.
Takpelah kalau  awak seorang je yang pandai main gitar dalam kelas awak.
Takpelah kalau awak seorang je yang minat P. Ramlee daripada geng-geng awak.
Bukannya forever alone pun.

By doing things that you like, love and have a passion with, you'll find the happiness and people who have the mutual interests with you. Believe me :)

I love sajak and puisi.
I love pink.
I love to spend my time alone with books (rather than people).
I love to listen to Coldplay.

So, what are yours? ;)

I Am Still Living With My Past (you)

The following character is either girl or boy, woman or man, female or male.
As long as it is story, just read :)

Now the sky could be blue, I don't mind.
Without you, it is a waste of time.

I am still living with my past (you).

I drown myself into photography. 
We both are bookworms, living in our book-maniac world. Read sirah novels by Abdul Latip Talib.
Listening Coldplay's songs, especially 'Strawberry Swing'. You were a part of orchestra team, while I am in Gamelan.
Before, I never thought of wearing high heels because you once said, "It's not you that shortie, it others are just too tall" :)
To add, I never wore shawl since I met you because you personally think that "woman who wears tudung bawal is more beautiful than others" and you already knew that 'Rabiatul' and 'make-up thingy' can't be put in one sentence because it's weird.
Do you still remember 'Plants vs Zombie' game? And how interested we were with the characters until you gave me the'Sunflower' doll and you own the 'Corn'.
Your Tipah (cat), yeah, I still remember her. And because you always told me about Tipah, I slowly began to love cats :)
We enjoyed sending letters to each other because it is not mainstream and it shows more sincerity I guess.
On the way going back to Terengganu, I can't avoid to think of you whenever i past Kerteh area, because your brother works there.
I thought I'll be okay in Kuala Terengganu until I saw a clinic named 'Klinik Najmie'. Oh, the name is almost similar like yours.
Suprisingly, I still wear the pink jubah you bought me from Indonesia last year and it is the last gift you gave me before we both decided not to contact anymore.

I don't listen to Coldplay's anymore because I find Austin Mahone is more to my style.
Now I sometimes wear high-heels because it is not others are too tall, it is just me that too short.
I love shawls, especially pashmina because I am lazy, I don't have that much time to iron my bawal.
I apply compact powder, lip gloss, lotion and sometimes eye-liner because now 'Adawiyah' and 'make-up thingy' are beautiful in one sentence.


I am still in love with photography.
I am still a bookworm, a Hlovate fan and forever Abdul Latip Talib's loyal reader.
I plays Sarun in Gamelan and I enjoys watching orchestra performance via Youtube.
I put the 'Sunflower' in a box together with your letters :)
And the jubah, I never put it in my wardrobe. It is always in a place that I can see clearly and obviously. Just because...

I never realized that all this while, I have decided to still live with my past (you) because my past (you) was the happiest moments i ever had. So far yet so close. so close yet so far.

It's such a perfect day... :)

p/s Final exam. Maafkan salah silap. Tahun depan dah naik degree inshaa Allah ^^
