My #OneWord of the Year: Thankful

A photo posted by Zuhkey | زوكي (@zuhkey) on

2015 was a tough year for me. I've witnessed people come and go, I didn't get a certain thing because it was not destined for me, and my family going through trials and tribulations which made me very anxious since I almost thought the family will be broken.

Last year I focused on PATIENCE and this year I'll be thankful for whatever I've been through,

Even though some days seem to be hard, God has helped me and my family through the tough days. I can no longer complain "Why me?" because I know, deep down inside, that I may not understand now why its happening but later everything will make sense.

When people left me, new people entered my life and I never knew I would get so fond about them. When I didn't get what I wanted and got what God wanted me to have instead, I could see why He wanted me to have it. When I thought my family will break, the troubles ACTUALLY made my family stronger and closer than before!

This year, I'm ready to welcome the 'bad news' with open arms, open mind, and a thankful heart.

Alhamdulillah. (All praise be to Allah).


While most of the world is freezing cold, the rest is having sunny hot summer days. Malaysia is one of them (Actually, the weather of Malaysia is tropical so it's always raining, sunny and humid). Me and my sisters LOVE Nutella, alot. We tried out making Nutella milkshake in our dorms and I thought of sharing it here.

An Update on my Whereabouts #2

We're in the middle of the Exam week and it's quite funny and usual for me to procrastinate more during the exam week. I'm not sure if that's a good thing too, I mean I've done other productive stuff other than studying. For instance, I suddenly have free time to blog!

I'm back to painting again, except I've been practising a little bit of calligraphy lately. Not to be a professional or anything, but for the fun of it. I went shopping for some basic art supplies since I left most of my art supplies back home.

Driving to the beach has become our thing now. We drove to the beach once at sunrise and had breakfast at Mcdonald's, because why not!

The Manhattan Fish Market serves amazing delicious dessert. We tried the sizzlinng brownie with ice-cream and the hot chocolate. Worth trying!

I'm always up-to-date on my Instagram. Follow me here.

Until next time, Salam!

Room Decor Inspiration | #Floral

Hey my awesome readers!

It’s been ages since I wrote a post about room décor (or DIY – which I promise I’ll get back to soon). As most of you know, I’m a university student. So I prefer my little space in the dorm to feel and look comfortable. So I thought of showing some part of my dorm décor which basically go with the theme, floral.

The first being my favourite piece on my vanity -- a flower vase.

The artificial flowers are from IKEA. The bouquet consists of two roses, two orchids, one lily and other flowers I unfortunately can’t remember their names. I tried to go for pastel shades, taking one magenta flower just to make the flower vase more exciting. Although its vase isn’t that pretty (It’s a mason jar) , it still gives life to the dorm room.
