The red city

P1050075

When Fai and I first arrived in Marrakech, we didn't have enough time to explore this unique red city. We were just busy setting up our base, our new home. And at the top (the rooftop, I mean) of our new home is a spectacular view of the city. This is Gueliz, the new city in … [Read more...]

What to pack: A Hijabi’s Guide to the Sahara

Sahara Guide_TB

During the long Eid al Adha weekend break, Fai and I had the opportunity to explore Morocco and we headed out to the Sahara. I wasn’t really sure what to bring for the desert so I overpacked especially since I heard that it will be extremely cold during the night. Mind you I was … [Read more...]

Should I get a Samsung Note 4?

Samsung_TB

I still remembered when the iPhone blew the world into a frenzy when it was first released in 2007. Everyone just had to get it. Long lines popped up everywhere. It wasn't a new idea rather a simple dream of having a computer that fits into your pocket. You can just ask any … [Read more...]

It is already October! Gasp! I need to pen type this down before Fai's BIG 3-0 as Fai will then be writing a reflection entry of his (right now he is savouring the last days of his 20s). Oh how fast time flies and how long have I been procrastinating this blog entry. So many … [Read more...]

Lunch at Amal Association

IMG_6792_TB

Ever since we came to Marrakech, Nur and I have been on an eating spree trying to find good food in this lovely city. So much so that my wife even thinks that I may have gained some extra weight from Singapore. It also helps that the food is affordable and there is a wide variety … [Read more...]

Gotham the Pilot review

The_Origin_Stories_Begin_in_Gotham_Poster via MTV_TB

Oh my God! IT finally came! I couldn't believe it when I first heard of a plan to cover Bruce Wayne's early childhood days. To show the more twisted, dark and cynical streets of Gotham before Batman. It reminded me of another series that I hold dear to my heart which also covered … [Read more...]

Has it been a month already?

IMG_0973_TB

It has been a whirlwind of a time this past month. It is amazing as I look back at how many things we had to settle before we arrived here in Marrakesh. There were times that we thought we would never have made it work and wanted to call the whole thing off. But I guess through … [Read more...]

Sephora Haul + Maybelline Mascara

P1000537_TB

For the last couple of months, I have been experiencing bouts of very bad breakouts. It is making me feel ugly (physically at least). I think it is due to all the hormonal injections I was having while on our IVF treatment. Funny thing was that while I was on the treatment, my … [Read more...]

Royal blue for our 4th

P1000456_TB

For our fourth wedding anniversary, I had in mind the perfect pairing for an outfit. A tutu skirt together with a vintage blazer. I thought I had found the perfect pairing but when I finally put two and two together, it looked so odd. So I spent two hours deciding what to pair … [Read more...]
