Projek Iqra’s Shopping Raya 2013

Last Saturday, my husband and I got the golden opportunity to become one of the volunteers for ‘Shopping Raya 2013′ for Baitul Ehsan orphaned kids. This program was organised by Projek Iqra.

iqra

The home is located in Taman Maluri, Kuala Lumpur. The program said to start at 8.am, but we arrived at 7.45am. Call us eager, and yes we were. After waiting for the rest of the volunteers to arrive, the program finally started at 9am. It started with the opening speech from the founder of the home, also the caretaker. He spent his own fortune to build this home, and this home rely on people’s donation money as it is not under any organisation.

He and his wife started with renting a house, (and they are still renting) and now they recently bought a new house next door and the renovation just finished, earlier than planned. It cost them almost RM600k to buy the house, and they renovated the house into a three-story house (the rest of the houses are two-story) for RM200k. All from donations money, MashaAllah! Now, they have about 63 kids and the boys had to be placed in another house Gombak due to the lack of space.

I had to hold back my tears as I listened to founder talking about the background of some of these kids. There are cases where the kids came knocking at 3am in the morning, traveled far to find shelter. Not all of them are orphans, some come from a single parent family who are unable to take care of their kids.

Some kids have been here for all their lives, they were sent here since they were as young as 10 days old. Baitul Ehsan do not actually take in babies, but sometimes when people asked, they just didn’t have the hearts to say no.

The kids here are so blessed. They are so smart and well-behaved. One kid already went to Jordan to further their studies and another kid is going to Indonesia, with help of sponsors. These kids here are being taught to recite Quran and memorize them. The aim is to give them Maahad Tahfiz education. Other than Quran and Islamic studies, they are also learning academic basics such as maths, science, English and Bahasa.  They don’t go to public schools, all of them are home schooled, and they have teachers coming in everyday to teach them.

Krabi Trip: Part 1

I have been neglecting this blog again. I meant to update it, I swear. But I’ve been slumped with work, which I will tell you about later. However, in the midst of setting up business, my husband and I managed to find a time to take a time out and flew to Krabi, Thailand.

Oh dear, this will be a long post with lotsa pictures. And food porn. Bear with me here.

Day 1

It was an early flight and we arrived at our hotel, Aree Tara in Ao Nang, Krabi approx 9 am. We weren’t able to check in yet so we rented a motorbike for 200baht (RM20) for 24hours.

We took a bus to the hotel. It was just 300baht for both of us, and they dropped us right in front of our hotel. Getting a taxi would cost 600baht, but whats the point if you have a lot of time at hand, hey?

That’s me. On the scooter. No, I didn’t drive. Just posing. But I did learn riding a bike on the third day. :p

With the motorbike, we went to the Ao Nang center, got some massage (200baht), lunch and bought data plan for just 109 baht (see Noktahhitam’s post for more info on this).

Finally, it was time to check in to our hotel. The room was exactly as advertised.

I stole this picture from my Noktahhitam’s blog. haha. On our way back to hotel, we bought sticky mango rice on the street.

Vlog: super fast hijab tutorial (not!)

Heyy, I was bored and lazy but I didn’t want to give in to the temptations of obsessively texting my husband, distracting him from work, so I pulled out my camera and started recording myself. With clothes on, of course.

 

Sorry, banyak merepek mostly. Pardon me, I haven’t gone out of the house for 4 days. I told myself to go out, get some air, EVERYDAY but the weather’s too cold. Plus, I don’t have any money, so..  =/

 

Right, should really get back to my essay. Zzzzzz

sweet casual look [video]

I was procrastinating my work by playing with my husband’s Canon 60D while he was out working. I’ve always been amazed by the HD video quality wanted to play with it and hopefully able to do some video editing. I also wanted to practice talking infront of camera because I always FAILLLLL big time at that.

However, still being me, I still don’t have the guts to speak right infront of camera so I did a makeup demo instead. haha. I still hope to be able to face that weakness of mine somewhere in the future. So, in the mean time, try to enjoy the video! haha :p

You know what, scrap all the BS above. This is my excuse to play “dress up” with myself (HA-HA!). Another option would be camwhoring cause I’ve got no real life friends and I’m cool like that. yeaaah…..

I need to go out with my girls T_T
