A fruitful day

Started my day at 6am yesterday.

Registered at 9am. It was my first time attending ARS course, despite obtaining the cert 2 years back. Unfortunately, I couldn’t attend most of the courses as they were held during weekdays.

Alhamdulillah I gained a lot of knowledge from the course (which I will share about it in my future post, inshaAllah). I saw quite a number of familiar faces, of which some of them I managed to talk to.

Ended at 1pm. I rushed to my class which was located not far from the course venue. I had to meet my friends at 2pm, to finish writing our project which we had to present it on that same day. Alhamdulillah we managed to finish it just before the class started at 3pm. Lessons ran as usual but our minds were still unprepared for the presentation.

After maghrib, the first group began to present. Bear in mind, we were the last group to present, so we had about 3 groups ahead of us. Throughout all the presentations, we couldn’t really focus (I’m so sorry, classmates) as we were extremely nervous because firstly, we were not well prepared and we didn’t memorise anything and secondly, we didn’t know how was the teacher going to mark us.

15mins before class ended. Our turn to present to the class. Surprisingly and alhamdulillah, it was not as scary as what I expected it to be. Yup, there were time where I have to look at my notes to present but all in all, everything went smoothly alhmdulillah.

Before dismissal, our teacher commented by appreciating our hardwork and participation in this project. And yesterday was also his last day of teaching us, as we will be changing to different module next week.

Ma’as Salaamah, Ustaz. May Allah bless him and his family with blessings in both world, aamiin.


Sunday thoughts

Can I fast forward to Friday and Saturday again? Or instead can I attend school everyday again?

Ohh how I missed studying.

“اللَّهُمَّ إِنِّي أَسْأَلُكَ عِلْماً نَافِعاً، وَ رِزْقاً طَيِّباً، وَ عَمَلاً مُتَقَبَّلاً”

“O Allah, I ask You for knowledge that is of benefit, a good provision, and deeds that will be accepted.”


Alhamdulillah, I managed to get through today. It was a very busy day at work as we had to rush lots of last-minutes requests, bearing in mind that we got to clock out an hour ealier.

But that was not the highlight of today. Instead, what kept me feeling nervous was to attend my first ever formal religious class after 6 YEARS!

Initially, my parents were concerned about me having to cope both work and studies at the same time. And they were saying that they will ‘miss’ me, as I will not be at home most of the time. Hearing that, I felt reluctant to proceed with my decision at first.

But I ensured and convinced them that I will try my best, and I asked for their prayers. Just before going to the class, I asked my mum again whether to proceed. She told me to just follow my heart. So, I heeded the advice and I decided to challenge my limits, inshaAllah.

Alhamdulillah, first day done! It was a great restart despite the exhaustion. May Allah ease our affairs for the upcoming challenges.

Ps. Yay, I ended my day with a dark chocolate from my sweet parents! 😋

Sisters day out

Since yesterday was a holiday, my sisters and I decided to go out. We left home after Zuhur and headed to Changi Airport by train. No, we did not have any intention to go to Jewel because we knew it will be crowded with people since it was newly opened.

So, this was our main purpose of going there hehe. TP Tea is a Halal Certified Taiwanese bubble tea shop, which is located at T2, level 2 Departure Hall.

We stopped for a while to get our ID photo done. Initially, we wanted to eat at Jinjja Chicken which is located at T2, however we were not really hungry as we have eaten before going out.

Then, we took the skytrain to T3 to play the arcade games. But before that, we dropped at T1 first and stopped at the viewing mall. Soon after, we searched for a secluded space to perform our prayers.

At T3, we thought that there were not much of things to eat. After discussing, guess where did we eat? Yeah our final decision was shown in the pic below.

After eating, we headed to B2 for the arcade. It has been a long time since we played arcade, hence we were a bit fascinated.

After an hour or so, we shopped at one of our favourite outfit outlets. It sells outfits that are suitable for Muslimah to wear on daily basis.

That summed up our half day yesterday, and it was good to have this kind of break amidst our busy days. Alhamdulillah.

Husna turned 2

Another year has passed, you have turned 2. Alhamdulillah, you have learned and catch up on a lot of things. But my dearest niece, remember to learn the correct things as this world is full of deception.

You responsed well to our questions, you know what you like and what you dislike. I hope, in the future, you will stand your ground despite the pressure around you.

You enjoyed being around and playing with people. So be sure to have good company when you grow up, and treat them well.

You know how to show sympathy when others feel sad. I hope, in the future, you will have the empathy towards others and serve them well.

Dearest niece, may you grow up to be a good servant, a good daughter and a good person holistically, inshaAllah!
