A year ago, on this date 28th December, I said I do to one of my greatest friend and I now called him my husband. We spend our one year marriage life stuck at home for a few months due to the world's pandemic - Ms. Corona and another few months apart due to long distance. 

Marriage life, especially if you married your best friend is fun. Most of the time. Minus the misunderstanding and few small fights here and there. Now that we are no longer in long distance relationship, I could say that I enjoyed being married. 

My inner Nigella is very content and happy being able to clean and cook for her family. She sleep content every night ever since we moved. Although my other half have not yet stop complaining about the amount of hair fall he'd discover every single day. Opps!

So, cheers to being married for 365 days (make it 366 since 2020 is a leap year!) and I pray for many many blessings in our marriage life. Please keep us both in your prayers!

Happy Sunday loves! Just a few more days before Christmas and a new year 2021 approaching us. Little did we know that 2020 was a very unexpected year for most of us. Yet, I am thankful for even a smallest blessing in disguise that it has brought to me and my family and friends. This will be my last Sunday Favourites for 2020 and I will surely continue this series next year. 

Favourite Christmas Playlist

I have been blasting off Christmas songs non stop since early December. Christmas is one of my most favourite holiday. It is the time when everyone gathered up with family and friends and enjoy the feast and celebration. Both the mister and I have decided to not go back this year due to Sabah is still under CMCO until 31st Dec and we have to undergo two covid19 test and fork out huge amount of cash only for the test. Plus, the risk of travelling during these holiday season and bringing some viruses to our elderly is so scary. 😟 This is our first year being away during Christmas holiday. So, playing this Christmas playlist definitely help to kick the unhappy mood away.

New Cooking Utensils

The time has finally come for me to admit that I am such an aunty who currently enjoyed her new cooking utensils. We moved out last week and rent out another apartment for the sake of our little privacy and we went for homeware hunting and we bought a cooking pot and pan set. It was cheap, less than RM50 and we bought it from One Stop Superstore. If you are Malaysian; especially Sabahan, you will know how unreliable and flimsy cheap thing from the store is. So, I'm very surprised on the quality of the pot and pan and currently enjoy cooking dinner with it.

New Skincare and Makeup Routine

In case you did not read my latest bio, I am currently living on a small island called Labuan FT. Labuan is Federal Territory which previously was under Sabah but not anymore. It's hard to predict the island weather here but it is mostly humid and very hot. Trust me, I had a hard time adjusting with the weather. For the first few weeks since I arrived here, I did not even bothered to put on any makeup because everything melted in sweats less than 5 minutes. So, here is my new skincare routine and make up routine:


Not in the photo: my go-to daily cleanser from Althea's Bare Essential skincare line. Currently I'm using  both HadaLabo (Sensitive skincare range) for my lotion and moisturizer. I freaking love both of this product and will definitely going to repurchase it. As for my sunscreen, I am using Loreal UV Perfect Matte & Fresh. Despite the humidity, I still want to look presentable and I usually will smear on some cream and I'm using the IN2IT BB Aqua Makeup cream and then proceed to fill my eyebrow with an eyebrow pencil. Since we are still using face mask as part of our everyday accessories, I could not be bothered to put on lipstick and it will stain my mask. 😷 

I guess that is all for my recent favourites and I hope you guys enjoy reading this short sharing. Wishing everyone an early Christmas and New Year greeting. Please enjoy and stay safe wherever you are! x


Its took me 8 years and 6 month to finally tender my resignation. Is it scary? Of course. Both the hubs and I had a talk about me relocating near him. We have both discussed everything in full length; the pros and the cons. Earlier, we had decided to just go with the flow as we are still trying to fight and live with the ongoing pandemic. Then, a second wave hit us - very badly.


That's when I have decided to update my resume and started to change my LinkedIn profile to "Open for Opportunity/Work" and I have chosen the location as near as possible to the husband. Its was very intimidating at first. I was demotivated many times and keep on saying to hubs that I'm about to give up. Thankfully, hubs is very understanding and keep motivating me to continue job-hunting. His endless encouragement finally resulted in fruitful outcome. 

I think I have applied almost hundred if not more job's application. Few just directly ignored my emails and few did replied with rejection. The thought of just resigning without any stand-by job as a backup did come up to me. As long I no longer live far away from the husband. Fortunately, it doesn't need to come up to that point. As much as I need to be near with my other half, I also understand the burden and responsibility and how its going to affect us financially. 

Apart from moving closer to be with the husband, I also manage to secure a job that I love doing - marketing. This is something that I have been wanting to venture for quite awhile now. Here are some short vlog during my last week working. Hope you guys enjoy!


I'm currently under home quarantine until my RT-PCR and RTK-ag swab test results come out. The RTK-ag came out negative yesterday and I'm so thankful. Hopefully everything is well and I will be release soon. I will surely share my experience travelling while CMCO and how is the process and so on. Please stay tune!

Thanks for reading! Till then x
