I'm supposed to work on my assignment that is due tomorrow right now but nah, guess I'm just gonna write something here. You know that feel when you just wanna give up on everything? Like you're on to something and halfway there, you just feel like giving up on everything with no particular reason. You just stop and just do nothing. Well that's me right now. I don't know why though. I have people around me in college saying I'm currently living this so-called "life goals". For me to have my own income, the so-called creative talent and basically just living life not like how a normal 18 years old should be living. I was kinda shocked though when I hear that haha. Well yeah, it may look nice and all but deep down, I'm not really feeling it though.

I have like this empty hole inside of me. I may have all that, but I've realized that I was too focused on my goals that I sometimes forget about the people around me. I get kinda lonely sometimes which kept me wondering, am I happy? Nope. I guess this is just a self-reflect post. I really want to balance both my goals and my relationship with the people around me including Allah SWT. It's true how people always say that money can't buy love. Well, they don't. Hopefully I could fill that empty hole inside of me by spending more time with the people I love and at the same time, work hard towards achieving my goals.

Watching my small store grew bigger day by day really motivates me to work harder towards achieving my goals; which is to open up a store and letting people know what and who is Wallflower Store. Alhamdulillah, Wallflower Store now has it's own independent website where people can easily buy them online without the Whatsapp hassle anymore.

Hello blog! I decided to write again since I feel the need to jot down these special memories and occasions so that I could read them again like a storybook written by me haha. So, starting off with the Istanbul trip I went with my family earlier this year around March. It was during my final semester. I wasn't supposed to go but my dad was too sad to leave me here without the rest of the family hehe. So I did! I can't remember when was the last time we had a proper vacation though but this trip was super memorable!

Moving along, the day finally came. My dad flew to Istanbul first as he had to deal with work and then the rest of the family would tag along 2 days later. Our flight was delayed for 7 freaking hours. I remembered when we had to sleep in the small praying room at the airport. But the fun part finally came when the finally got into our flight and started the journey to Istanbul.

We were lucky that the trip was during the end of winter season. So basically, the weather was just nice. Not too cold and not too hot. A nice chilly weather! 

During the Bosphorus Cruise, Istanbul.

The Blue Mosque interior.

Inside the Topkapi Palace.

Some random bread stall by the streets.

Tulips were literally EVERYWHERE!

The Grand Bazaar.

The famous Hajr Sophea. I was blown off by the beauty.

          I had the longest semester break and all I did was focusing on my instashop (@wallflowerstore) and taking care of the house chores. It's not that I'm complaining though. I just wish I could just take a time off and go somewhere and just chill. But sadly my semester break is about to end and hello there final semester. Can't wait to finish up my foundation! 

          So basically yesterday, I came across an Instagram post by Fashion Valet. Guess what? They are hosting a contest for bloggers to stand a chance on winning an ensemble from head-to-toe by Fashion Valet and also a 3 days and 2 nights in Phuket! To be more precise, in Paresa Phuket! A luxurious highly rated resort by The Luxe Nomad *gets excited* So here I am, giving my best shot :)

As soon as I saw the post, I went on a little research about the 
Paresa Phuket (http://paresaresorts.com/) - A link worth a click!

          You know how people say a picture is worth a thousand words? Just imagine seeing it live in action. Well, see for yourselves. I can't even describe how amazingly beautiful the resort is. Totally awed and I can totally see myself with my family enjoying the heavenly place just as prescribed on the website. Haha.

A little peek of the amazing Paresa Phuket *Jaw drops*

Here goes nothing :)

          I'd like to win a stay at Paresa Phuket on the Luxe Nomad because of several reasons. First and upmost reason is because I would like to win this for my parents. They have been my backbone and supporters from the very start especially in my on-growing business (@wallflowerstore) and for believing in my chosen course (going into graphical arts). I started the business right after SPM and it has been an incredible year as I watch it grew bigger. This year I'll turn 19 and looking back, I would have never made this far if it wasn't for my super supportive parents and family. In a way, this Paresa Phuket Getaway would be a great gift from me to them as a token of appreciation and to make them happy since the last time we had a proper vacation was in the year 2010. It's time to surprise them with this Paresa Phuket Getaway. Plus, I've always wanted to see the beauty of Phuket in my very own eyes and to be given the chance to stay in a luxurious resort like Paresa Phuket is a spot on bonus! Though my parents are into back-packing, I guess it's time to give them a break and let them enjoy a little bit of luxury once in awhile haha.

Now here comes the fun part! As for what I would wear from Fashion Valet while I'm there :)
(I've compiled into a collage to ease the eyes hehe)  All photo credits goes to FashionValet.com

          I would go for a minimalist Bohemian look. I love everything on the site but I have made up my mind for the trip! I'm going for the mint green Tassel Kimono top paired with the slouchy pants for the casual look. Not to forget the gorgeous Chocolate Cookie Dough scarf by dUCK! As for the shoes, I'd wear it with the casual espadrilles and the Mini Overnighter Bag in blue.

          I hope I could be one of the two lucky person to win this contest :) I've never won any online contest before and it would mean the world to me if I were to be given the chance of a lifetime to spend time with my family in Paresa Phuket! If you're also interested on joining this contest, click here!

Wish me luck! :)

          I finally did a room makeover! My room was pink, so I decided to go all minimalist and painted it white. I'd like to keep it simple and calm. So tell me what do you think?

             I realised I haven’t been updating on anything for a while now simply because there is just so much happening everyday I can’t keep up! Looking back to my last entry which was on the 25th of November 2012 really made me realised that I need to update something haha. This morning, I was just browsing back my Myspace accounts. Yes, I have two accounts. One was my personal account and another one was a Graphic Account. It was actually a fan account meant for my favorite artists or bands back then. Namely The Jonas Brothers, Miley Cyrus, Demi Lovato, Selena Gomez, The Twilight Saga and etc. Haha yes, I was a Disney freak once but that was ages ago, when I was only 10 years old.

A screen capture of what Myspace looks like right now. Horrible layout haha.
My Graphic account name was Blankshirt Graphics.

             Those days (Year 2006), technology was quite uncommon for us as kids. That was the first time I learned about the Internet. During those days, kids and teenagers are into “Myspace” accounts. I had one when I was 10. There was this phenomena where kids and teenagers those days are into editing photos using free software online (Photobucket, Picnik and etc) and I was one of them. So I asked myself, were there any software that you could actually do more instead of some boring limited choices of effects? With the power of Google, I knew Adobe Photoshop. It was a self-discovery and knowing that the price of the software is super expensive, I was totally despaired. My dad wouldn’t allow me to download anything from the Internet because of virus and stuffs. But I took the risk and downloaded the free trial of Adobe Photoshop. At the age of 10, what do I know about Photoshop? That was when Youtube came in handy.

I watched videos of tutorials starting from the very beginning and the basics. It was hard but as I experimented a few times, I did quite a good job as a first timer and a 10 years old child haha poyo. That was the moment when a spark of interest came in. Back then on Myspace, there was this trend of making accounts for your favorite artist (more like a fan page) and the account holders were actually among graphic students from all over the world. What they do was actually photo manipulating pictures of their favorite artists or bands and sharing them with one another. I took part in it and made another account for my graphic site. Nak tengok my progress through the years? Nah.

2006 - 10 years old 

2007 - 11 years old

2008 - 12 years old

Can you clearly see the progress? Haha, segan nak besarkan gambar-gambar tahun 2006 and 2007. Ok la tu kan for a 12 years old kid hehe. It took me 3 years to learn and master all the basics. But hey I did enjoyed all the process, haha and definitely gave me the advantage bila naik secondary school. Dapat join editorial board time form 4 (my biggest dream ever). So it's true when a saying goes, "When you know your passion, your whole world will change". I seriously don't mind sleeping late at night just to do the things that I love. Eyebags besar mana pun can't stop me from doing it haha. 

So yeah, this throwback session was really an eye opener for me as I see myself today, 18 years old and still going strong in what I do. I plan on continuing my studies in this field throughout the next few years as I endeavor to expand my business to a whole new level with my passion in this field ece poyo but hey it's true haha.
