I’m A Buangkok Bitch; I Ramble: 15 June 2021

In the name of Allah, The Most Gracious, The Most Merciful.

And just like that we’re in the middle of the month already.

And just like that my pay has finished already. We spent a lot on our home project, which has absoulutely turned into a dream! My husband’s old room is not a beautiful studio where we can play and record music comfortably!

I’m too lazy to put together the before/after pictures so kindly help yourself by visiting my Instagram and checking out the development of our Studio in my Highlights there.

I have gained quite a bit of weight and I feel like I need to lose some pounds in order to stay within the healthy BMI range as well as just to feel healthier. It’s harder to be mobile when you feel heavy. So I intend to achieve some lightweightness in order to be more active and more energetic hopefully.

I have chanced upon The Conqueror Virtual Challenges on Instagram and I feel quite attracted to it. Right now, I’m having a dilemma. The pauper side of me is saying to not spend on the medals but to do those challenges and achieve the medals virtually instead. The pampered side of me is saying to spend on the medals because health is a good investment and also because the medals look really good.

So I don’t know, man. I really don’t know which to choose. Le sigh.

I mean, look at all the medals. My friend has tried one and she said the medal is weighted and nicely manufactured. She did the Mount Fuji one. I am so jelly now.

So how?

And Allah is Ar-Rahmaan, The Most Merciful. – MM

I Ramble: 8 June 2021

In the name of Allah, The Most Gracious, The Most Merciful.

It has been a very long work-in-progress and it still is. Can’t wait for the studio to be ready so A and I can have a space for ourselves to play and record music.

A big update is my new work schedule. I will be working from 10.30am to 9pm. That doesn’t exactly leave me much time at home because I need to leave the house at 9.30am and I will only reach home at 10pm. One thing for sure is that I need to adjust my diet and my lifestyle.

I feel knackered, absolutely. But no choice ka na. I decided to break down my time at home on working days as the following:

10pm-10.30pm: Wash up

10.30pm-11pm: Music (for now it’s working on the studio)

11pm-11.30pm: Smiling Greens

11.30pm-12pm: Street MOB Clothing

And Allah is All-Knowing. – MM

I Ramble: 24 May 2021

In the name of Allah, The Most Gracious, The Most Merciful.

Apologies for my absence on this blog. I have been kept rather busy working on my home project, which is being delayed due to my inefficiency and some laziness.

Anyway, you can follow the progress of my home project on my Instagram, http://instagram.com/MetropolitanMuslimah.

I will mostly be there for now until the project is completed.

And Allah is always fair. – MM

Many Days; I Ramble: 16 May 2021

In the name of Allah, The Most Gracious, The Most Merciful.

Many days, I do not know what being a wife is all about.

Some days, I do not know whether I am doing it right.

Certain days, I do not know what a marriage is.

Most days, I just do what I think I am able to do.

Nowadays, I just do my best and leave it all to Him.

Suffice to say, I always feel like an inadequate wife. Knowing that, I am still trying to sort myself out. But it is always hard when you have take on a little bit more than your traditional gender duties.

It is tiring. But then again, everything is tiring in this world.

And Allah knows best. – MM
