10 on 10 January

Hello friends, we meet again in 2018! I am hoping that everyone is in good health and surrounded by your loved ones! It’s time for the first 10 on 10 of the year and I am very excited to see what the new year will bring! I am doing two projects for this year which are Project 365 and Project 52. Not going by any theme, I leave it open but who knows what I’ll decide later! If you like to follow along, you can find me on INSTAGRAM. Say hi or leave some love if you’re there!

Last weekend, we traveled to Ipoh, Perak to pick up my daughter who is on her semester break. At first, I wanted to stay in a hotel but find it very difficult since there were five of us. So then I decided to book a house from Airbnb instead and found this most COZY house with lovely or should I say GROOVY decorations! Go check out the house HERE! Or better still you can scroll through my photos and see it for yourself.

My 10 on 10 January..(or maybe more!)

Please continue the lovely blog circle to see what my friend, Charlotte who is living in Essex, UK is up to with her beautiful family this month.

My son said MA look cookie!

Inside Sekeping Kong Heng Ipoh…

I really love the pleasant smell of trees at each and every corner of this building, the sound of people coming in and out, the different textures on the wall and amazing lights piercing through the leafs. It’s a beautiful place to wander and get lost. I am hoping to come again but not on weekends where it can be too crowded.

At Yasmin @ Kong Heng..

The way to start writing isn’t by writing at all. But by living. It isn’t about creating something from thin air, but about documenting our personal feelings about the things that we see. Or to put it crudely, how are you going to be a storyteller if you have no story to tell? Perhaps, in the end, there are no such thing as creative people; they are only sharp observers with sensitive hearts”. – Yasmin Ahmad

I had always envy those who can write and tell their stories very effortlessly. I can never even write a simple sentence without pausing (at least for ten minutes) to really find the right words. It’s like I wanted to tell the whole world about what’s going on in my head but the words are jumbled up in my head and I can’t let it out. Or maybe I am too afraid that people will judge me when they read what I have written. But, the words by Yasmin Ahmad struck me like a million lighting!

I am a fan of all her beautiful work. May Allah blessed your soul Yasmin. Al-fatihah.

I am really grateful that I can spend my time with this man. We basically share the same interest and it’s also a blessing that he is into photography as well. The support and encouragement that I get from him ALWAYS gets me going when time are hard.

If you make it up to here, THANK YOU!

Sepuluh

‘Sepuluh’ means ten.

Love,

Hujung bulan lepas, kami tiga beranak pulang ke kampung suami yang terletak di belah selatan tanahair iaitu Johor Bahru. Kalau dah sampai ke Johor memang pening kepala nak atur jadual sebab terlalu banyak perkara yang nak dilakukan dan selalunya masa amat cemburu kepada kami. Itu belum lagi dengan nak mencuba makanan-makanan lazat yang ada di serata bandar Johor, selepas pulang mungkin kalau timbang naik 5 kilo rasanya!!

Alhamdulillah perjalanan kami selesa dan kereta pun tak meragam, mungkin sebab niat nak pulang jumpa mak suami aka mak mertuaku! hehehe.. Sesampainya kami di rumah mak, nasi jagung berserta ayam masak merah dengan jelata timun setia menunggu. Apa lagi, kami yang memang lapar makan macam tak cukup, air tangan mak memang selalunya sedap ya allah! Bukan sahaja mak masak yang itu tapi hari kemudiannya mak buatkan serawa durian, mee soto dan macam-macam lagi. Kasih mak sampai ke syurga! Terima kasih mak! (gambar tak sempat ambil sebab sibuk makan!)

Yang di bawah ini adalah pilihan 10 keping gambar saya untuk dikongsikan bersama (sebenarnya ada beratus! hahahaha).

We went back to my husband’s hometown in Johor Bahru last month, spent some time at my mother-in-law’s house and Khaled had a wonderful time with his grandmother. She cooked some of my husband’s favourite dishes and it was so yummy. Afterwards, we spent a few hours in town and I took the opportunity to shot some pictures. We stayed at a budget hotel that had great view of Johor city and also amazing light! My photographer’s heart was so happy when I saw it! I managed to capture some ‘magic dust’ too!”

Here are my the photos for my 10 on 10 blog circle that happens every 10th of the month! Enjoy! and please head on to Breanna’s page to see what she’s up to with her beautiful family in Kodiak, Alaska.

Love to photograph beautiful abandon alley when I found one!

I love OOF (Out-Of-Focus) image. Some kind of mystery when looking at them!

One of the beautiful grafiti I found in Jalan Dobi, Johor Bahru.
