Have a great day and to those who will be celebrating Eid this Monday, have fun preparing for Eid with your loved ones. And please always, always remember those who are less fortunate. and let's not forget to pray for them too. Selamat Hari Raya!

Let's Call This A Comeback

Hello my dear beloved blog (can I call you BB? No? Okay). I've missed you so much. Gosh I haven't uploaded anything here for two years! That is wayyy too long and trust me, I feel so awful about it. But fret not, I'm currently working on a new design for this blog's template. And insya Allah I'm planning to blog again, and this time I want to start being active in blogging. But let's not make any big promises yet! I'm currently practising the principle of "actions speak louder than words" in my life insya Allah; so I'm being careful not to talk too much about something before I actually do it.

So anyway, I had written something in my mockup blog (a blog where I test templates and designs before applying them here). This will do for now. See you again later insya Allah! So happy to be back! Gosh I've missed writing so muchhhhh. I've realized lately that I actually love writing. I need to start writing a new novel. Okay maybe not, I take that back. See ya later alligator! 

As copied from my mockup blog:

Hello hello testing one, two, three. Currently I'm using a template bought from Etsy (actually my sister bought it hehe). I love the design of this template so much, it's elegant, minimalistic and simple. So let's see how it works. I'm thinking of making some changes here and there, just to personalize it a little -- to make it more me. I have some things in mind, just need to do some designs on Photoshop first, anddddd this template will be done. 

But of course, not tonight though. Eid (a.k.a Hari Raya Aidilifitri a.k.a Hari Raya Puasa) is on Monday (gasp, 2 more days!), so I still have a lotttt of things to prepare for it. And tonight my to-do list includes doing laundry (some of them require hand-washing *cries a little inside*), grooming, packing clothes for balik kampung, andddd what else? Oh yeah, not to forget, mixing and matching clothes, tudungs and jewelry -- for Raya day one and Raya day two. 

You see, I don't have a proper baju raya this year (as in a complete set of baju kurung) because I think they're a complete waste of money -- at least for me. Because I don't wear baju kurungs that much, especially if they are fancy. You know how fancy baju kurungs for raya can be right? What's with the beadings and everything. And the only place / event that I would wear those baju kurungs again after raya would be wedding ceremonies; which don't happen everyday. That's why I decided that blouses matched with long skirts are the best option as baju raya for me. If Nurita Harith can do it elegantly, why can't I? :p

So anyway, before I forget, this is only a mockup blog -- where I test my HTML codes and template before I apply them onto my real blog. My real blog is www.myesarahhalim.blogspot.com . I've had that blog for years, since 2009 I think. But I haven't uploaded anything there since 2012. God. Two solid years. However, lately I've been thinking that I should be blogging again, and this time I want to be active at it. Insya Allah. Let's see how it goes.

Have a great few last days of Ramadan to you, and Selamat Hari Raya! 


Okay that's all for now. Panjangnya post omg.
