2014 Highlight

my 2014 highlight was:

wearing hijab

it was a big decision. since hijab is a religion identity which i will carry all the way til the day i die.

i have the intention since 2006, which is a year after become a freshman in college. that time, i was member of Badan Eksekutif Mahasiswa (executive student body) at my college. that made me befriends with many hijabers (term for girls who wearing hijab). to be honest, my worship activity were bad (i bet still am) but being surrounded with hijabers made me, at least, aware that my doing were wrong.

but with many considerations, i always put on hold the intention. but, Alhamdulillah, Allah SWT, The Almighty, grant me the chance i need. so, here i am. wearing hijab. but it doesn't mean, i am necessarily become a perfect person with no mistakes and sins.

wearing hijab doesn't mean i am perfect but i am learn to be perfect and it is a lifetime learning.

Boyfriend's Outfit

well, this is not actually his outfit post instead my outfit post wearing his outfit.
since i wearing hijab, i kinda sort my wardrobe, looking something loose and something that will hide my curves. and since his outfit definitely have bigger size than me, it will be loose if i wear one of them.

so, i got these outfit. the shirt and t-shirt. its not like he voluntarily gave those to me but, i borrow it but not intended to give them back :)

When You Treated Me Bad

its not a revenge, its just the way it is.
people do other people good when they have a great attitude towards others.

the same way goes with me. when i grieved for my brother-in-law death, unfortunately i got an upcoming event and i was the project manager but my friend took my place and told client's that i was in grieved and couldn't be bother. but she refuse that and told my friend, that at least i could answer her phone call.
How could i answer a phone call when i stand next to my brother-in-law body ready to be buried?! can you show a little sympathy to other human being that suffer a lost of their loves one?!

and this experience makes me wonder. what could've been lack of today society that make they forget how to sympathize to others?

Ride a Roller Coaster

i guess the expression "Life Is a Roller Coaster" is the right expression to be implemented on my life.

last week, i was happened to be have the best time of my life, since i got a chance to presented my thesis in front of six professors. even though, there are revision here and there on my thesis before i finally got to put on another title to my name.
it was on Monday, November 24th 2014.

and on Tuesday, November 25th 2014
i got a sad news. my brother-in-law has passed away in the age of 34. he lost his battle to meningitis. its a bacterial infection of the membranes covering the brain and spinal cord. he left behind my sister and 2 beautiful daughters, Aisha Zakia Cherelle and Alanna Chairunnisa Aimee.
for people around us, his death was a sudden but for us who watch and there the whole time, his death was the best way that Allah could gave, since its freeing my brother from the ultimate pain that he felt on his head.
it was a month since he started felt something wrong on his head and just 10 days since doctors sentenced that he got meningitis.

this was happened just within hours lapse. i was so exciting and happy even though i was worried about my revision on Monday night and got sad and feeling sorry for my sister and nieces on Tuesday at dawn.

Life Is a Roller Coaster. we wouldn't know what future hold for us. the best way that we can do is to be grateful for what today give for us.

Important Thing

always and will be think that education are the most important thing.

growing up in a home with million books within and live with father who work as an educator makes me thinks that education is the only weapon. and i feel lucky that both of my parents support me to take any level of education that i want. Inshaallah soon i will hold master degree but yet i still encouraged to pursue doctoral degree.

but there are many people weren't as lucky as me especially girls and women in conflicted area.

"In many parts of the world especially Pakistan and Afghanistan; terrorism, wars and conflicts stop children to go to their schools. We are really tired of these wars. Women and children are suffering in many parts of the world in many ways. In India, innocent and poor children are victims of child labour. Many schools have been destroyed in Nigeria. People in Afghanistan have been affected by the hurdles of extremism for decades. Young girls have to do domestic child labour and are forced to get married at early age. Poverty, ignorance, injustice, racism and the deprivation of basic rights are the main problems faced by both men and women." (Source: Malala Yousafzai speech)

one child, one teacher, one book, one pen can change the world.
