I have a very high hope of my remaining 2 months holiday. I want to do so many things that I was forced to put behind for years. I have a long list of sweets to try making, the piano that has been waiting for me for years to attend to, and sewing which I have just started. So, going down with flu and fever for which for now has been 3 days, is so frustrating. Usually, drugs+antibiotics work well on me. But, for some reason, I have to refuse antibiotics and settle with a mild drugs for flu. It does not work! I did many things to make myself comfortable especially for the cough. I tried air asam jawa, honey with lemon, all tak jalan.. If it is just the hingus and kahak, I could still functioning. But, with all the body aching and the fever, I can't even solat properly.
Trust me, the caused is not the cold weather which had just started a few days ago. For some reason, I could not stand this thing..
The thing called danbou (heater). The more cassic the type, the more disasterous it is to me.
On this cold weather, of course danbou is the survival kit. You know, to prevent you from frostbite. But, I can't help it that I am in love-hate relationship with this thing. The highest temperature I can tolerate is apparently 25, and this is accompanied by the air purifier.
But, 4 days ago, husband was down with fever and he turned the heater to 28 for the whole night. The next day, I got sick and he is in the pink of health again. When I think back, it is usually like that. I can be among those who are demam, and get infected last and the worst! I am totally his guardian angel. I took away his sickness. If that's so, I am more than willing to do so ^_^

My skin for 28 years and 11 months, before it became...
Tompok-tompok macam baru lepas demam campak. I tell you, demam campak pun tak persist for months :/
The tompoks are so disturbing to me as well as other people masalahnya. haha...How do I know? When I meet my friends when I was in KL, that's the first thing they ASKED! yea..they are so sensitive like that -_-" Obviously it bothers them so much that they have to ask! "what's with your face??!" with facial expression very similar to when you just witness kemalangan jalan raya gitu -_-"
After I got questioned by so many people..about my face (!) , I think it's time for me to properly invest in skincare. I have been a loyal shiseido user since I was 20. So, I was thinking maybe it is time to change. I don't know other skincare yang trustworthy, except SKII. Don't you agree? The price for daily routine product also are no much difference with Shiseido (except of course the miracle water which I contemplated to buy).
So I went to the SKII counter for skin analysis at the MV. The result showed nothing wrong with my skin. They said in conclusion, my skin is healthy. I asked if they would recommend me anything to at least stop the arising of pimples. They said I would just have to deal with the change of hormone due to my skin is changing weather. Maybe it is true. But the problem started even before I arrived in KL. sigh..
I went to Shiseido and took skin analysis. The result was the same except oily at the T-zone (obviously, KL was so hot). But the pimples are nowhere near the T-zone -_-" I asked if I could use anything to prevent the problem from getting worse? They can't recommend anything because according to them my routine are fine. But I insist. haha. Finally they 'allowed' me to buy Ibuki. A range to improvise your pores. I bought the promotional pack. I must say that Ibuki work wonders in cleaning the pores, therefore it helps to reduce the pimples. Alhamdulillah.
The problem does not stop there. haha.
Now I'm in Japan. Ibuki is strictly a no-no in here. It is autumn. Your skin tend to get dry. Ibuki would just make it worse because it would eliminate all the oil needed that helps moisten your skin. Learned it by hard. So, I went to the Shiseido counter to get my skin analyzed. As the result, my skin is healthy, but dry. It has causes the pimple to come back again. I don't get it actually.haha...because isn't pimples are caused by blocked pores? that is by oil? hmm...my skin are so messed up due to pindah randah negara. Sabar jela..
So, she told me to stick with my old routine, plus, ubat jerawat. haha.
End up with Shiseido shopping spree ^_^
So, I have returned to old routine with a little twist here and there recommended by the salesperson. Let's see how it goes :)
I read a few blog by other doctorate graduates who were having similar pimple attack. They said the pimples weren't just for days, they will persist for months! -_-" Am I one of those who suffers the same aftermath? If that's so, the tips here will only be, patience.
Sebotol patience cream please!

I mentioned this a lot of time whenever I got stressed up life during PhD period; "I will so going to have 6 months holiday after graduation!"
Yes, people the period has now come to an end. Well, it was actually last September, the moment suddenly Wani came to hiatus, again! So, feel free to congratulate me :p ahaha
Unlike any other graduate student, I do not have contract. So, after finishing, I am free to determine the next 'life'. Well, the PhD itself was a kind of 'rezeki datang bergolek'. The kind of moment when you never plan about it, or even strive towards it. It just came knocking on my door, giving me the sign to say yes to the marriage proposal. At first, I really want to rush into starting working at my home university. But, a few days before my departure to KL, I received the most terrible news (to me at that time); husband has to extend his stay in Thailand. This situation has made every plan goes haywire, the only way to solve it is one of us has to give up working. It was not possible to have one half in Malaysia and another half in Japan. Marriage does not work that way. Trust me, I learned this by hard. 700km apart for 3 years was torturing enough! That time, I do not think I can carry any more than 700 for even a day.
But I did it for a month. I went back to KL and spent my October in Malaysia, where I tried so hard to spend quality time with both my families, and beloved friends (I tried. haha). I satisfied with all the time spent, although I owe so many other people time with them.

-It was my first time bersolat sunat Syawal while on the way to rumah Tok We (husband's grandmother). It was the first time too I really see Temerloh!
- We didn't make any baju raya. In fact we did not think about balik raya until a week before our departure. Yes of course meghoyan cari tiket T_T So, I tried so hard to wear anything that match. A bit lari, but overall, our photos turned out really awesome! :')
My favorite memory on the 1st Syawal was, looking at how extremely happy Tokwe is:)
Husband woke me up to show me houses that he had shortlisted from iProperty. I was like...what happen to you? Suddenly so crazy looking for a house to buy! haha..He made Ummi (his mother) called the agents, and the visiting times are set.
Then we left for Kuala Pilah, my uwan's (my grandmother) house. Following that, we left for Semenyih (my father's hometown) in the afternoon.
I think 2nd Syawal is an extraordinary day for hubby. It was fated, he got to meet and solat together with Yam Tuan Besar Negeri Sembilan. Kebetulan, that Friday the Yam Tuan went Friday Prayer at the mosque nearby uwan's house:) Husband was like just inches away! hihi.
Days after Syawal, the 3rd
Our visit to empty or strangers' houses started..unti the day our departure back to Japan. Did we finally found our dream house?I will reveal it later (subjected to loan approval.hahahaha)
A bit frustrated though to cancel meetings with friends. But I assure them, I will be back in KL for good this Oct.! So, there is nothing to be mad about! haha.
Oh, didn't I tell you? I'm coming home!!
That's why I was in hiatus! I was busy with thesis, raya, emotions, packings! yes, packings! weehuu!!
See you, KL!

The story started on the August 7th, 4am.
The night before, the husband went home very late at night. Around 1130pm and only got to break his fast then. Well of course it broke the wife's heart every single time>,<
Anyway, they had to leave the house for the Narita Airport the latest at 4am. Why? First, subuh would only started at 340am. Secondly, the husband is apparently married to kura-kura.
Nevertheless, they successfully left at 4am, the weather was lovely, so was the traffic. According to the GPS, we would arrive 3hrs before the departure time which was just lovely! It was somehow, too surreal, until..they were about to enter Tokyo, where they seemed like..they were static. Like not moving at all.
Japan's highway is equipped with so many electronic information board, updating the traffic flow all the time. They will show you which point along the way, there are accidents or congestions, and the additional time you might need to reach your destination as the consequences. It happened that, on the way to Narita Airport, there were two major accidents in the middle of the already congested road! As soon as they enter the Tokyo and got stuck, the GPS recalculate the journey time and according to it, they will only arrived just in time of departure, which meant, they wouldn't be able to even check in >,<
The wife started to palpitate, nauseous and immediately her excitement just a few hours before gone! Just a few hour before she was dancing and singing in the car to Demi Lovato's (lol xp). Actually, since got married, whenever there's problem involving both of them, the wife had never really care because she knows the husband must have ways to solve it. The husband never really saw things as problems! Or he was just so lucky that way. But this time she could see his husband was so different and he seemed to putus asa sangat. The wife had to tell their situation to the family whom expected their arrival in the evening. The possibility they managed to arrive by time was practically 0%! Yeah..that was how hopeless they were!
They had to tell their family to expect the cancellation. Also, they had their aunty online to standby in case they have to cancel the ticket since she works in MAS. They really feel like being in Mission Impossible! It was nearly impossible! The picture of them beraya was erased, and husband had starting discuss the alternative ways to spend raya >,<
Suddenly, hubby just follow his heart and diverted to the city road. He knew it was not a good idea. The fact that it was Tokyo on the working day, just made it worst! GPS also did not agree with the husband. The calculation showed additional 2hr journey! Brilliant. The wife was about to cry! The husband diverted back to the highway, when suddenly magic happened..
Apparently, when the husband diverted to the city road, they skipped the jammed part! They suddenly on the smooth journey to the airport and managed to arrived 2hr before departure time.
That was the story of us, Wani and Asyraff balik raya. duh-_-"
(click on the picture. it is a short video;))
I always always love roadtrip (provided only in Japan).
Only Allah knows how indescribable our feelings to finally safely arrived and got to beraya with our family in this beloved country, Malaysia.
No where can beat Malaysia in my heart:)
I think it is too late to wish all of you Selamat Hari Raya, but I think it is still okay to ask forgiveness from all of you in case I have offended you in any way:)
