I Ramble: 10 March 2017

In the name of Allah, the All-Compassionate, the All-Merciful.

What’s up, guys?!

I’m…really sorry but it turns out I really am a person with no timetable. Well, actually, I can’t really be blamed because of circumstances I got caught in so eventually my timetable simply went crazy.

Anyway, yes, I couldn’t post anything musically related because my body decided to have menstrual period so while I was still trying to recover from stomach flu, I was having severe menstrual cramps as well. Yes, imagine my stress. Not to mention a whole lot of discomfort and pain in my abdominal region. Meow.

But anyway, despite not being able to achieve a lot of things I needed to get done, I still managed to practise some songs here and there but I have only done audio Smule recordings of Halo on Fire by Metallica, Forever by Kamelot, and The Ghost of You by My Chemical Romance.

I also realised I’m not the best audio engineer but it’s okay. I guess I have been out of touch with audio production.

Anyway, le fiance and I decided to skip the Awesome 3some event due to us being absolutely knackered by the Fun in the Sun challenge! Hehehe! We had a good time and in fact, yesterday has got to be one of the most memorable dates ever! Hahaha! Le fiance was sooooooooooooooooooo hyper! Hahahaha! It was like I brought a kid to the carnival! But it was nice to have him all excited and pumped and happy and laughing with me. It was like the real him was unleashed…even his competitive side! Hahaha! That scared me but in a good way. If there is anyone who is going to push me and make me cry but then comfort me and make me laugh at the end of everything, it’s gotta be him and only him. Hehe.

However, I won’t be doing the Fun in the Sun challenge as a Special Vlog because I couldn’t cover the event in its entirety due to me being extremely shy in public and well…we were joined by another Singaporean spontaneously so I had to accommodate her. Not everyone is comfortable with being filmed and I didn’t want to make a long explanation of what I intended to do so it was a no go for me in the end. BUT! I will make it into a vlog so no worries there, alright. Hehe.

I Ramble: 9 March 2017

In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful.

A couple of woes:

  1. I have been trying to get up at 4am for the past two days and I have failed. I have absolutely no motivation to get up at 4am tomorrow either. Maybe waking up at 4am is a bit of a stretch. In order to achieve that, I should really start with 5am first. It is my 2017 goal anyway.
  2. I couldn’t make a smule video recording because it was lagging so badly. By the time I wanted to have an audio one instead, it was time for me to get out of the house. Looks like it will have to be a double recording. Well, at least I’m already familiar with Paranoid.

Well, besides that, I’m still on schedule. So, sorry, guys but you will have to wait until Friday morning for any musical update from me.

And Allah is Ar-Rafi, the Exalter. – MM

The only things in life that are keeping me sane right now besides the Almighty, are le fiance, my family, and my friends.

So restless. I feel so restless.

I Ramble: 15 February 2017

In the name of Allah, the All-Compassionate, the All-Merciful.

Something not fun to announce: I have to postpone my wedding because I have family members who are stuck in a mindset that are not aligned with my principles in life but Beedin and I both wish to start our married life on a right note so this is the best solution we could come to.

😦

Booooooooooooooooooooooo.

Get your life. Hmph.

And Allah is Al-Basit, the Reliever. – MM

I Ramble: 13 February 2017

In the name of Allah, the All- Compassionate, the All-Merciful.

Hey, all!!!


I am now an engaged woman, someone’s fiancée!

The feeling is quite indescribable but let me try to put it into words anyway. I do feel different but at the same time it feels surreal. Like, wow, I’m engaged to le boyfriend (okay now Beedin has to be called le fiancé) but also how am I engaged to him? Did this engagement seriously happen? It hasn’t even been a year since we’ve known each other!

I remember when le fiancé sent me a pic of his family in the blue baju kurung. Now, I am part of his family…and they wore the same outfit!

I still can’t get over the highs of yesterday. Even le fiancé can’t. Upon reaching home at about midnight, we texted until past 3am. Of course, as usual, I fell asleep while texting. Hahaha!

Yup! He made our loveship called Black Lace, which carries my ring and tugs along a white wyvern carrying fruits and chocolates. Hehehe.

I also stalked le fiancé by taking photos of him in action — praying and watching TV. Hehehe.

Well, in turn, he took these photos of me.

Honestly, my makeup was terribly done by myself but in the above photo, it looks on point.

And damn, I look young.

Oh, well. Le fiancé said I looked drop dead gorgeous anway. 😉
