Salam and Hi. For those who have not known yet I affectionately call my hobonichi my Hobominci.
Yesterday I took the opportunity to declutter and rearrange the furniture and planner related stuff I have in my Minci Cave. As expected, there’s a lot of dust. I sneezed almost all the time but I managed to get the place in order about 70% I still have another 30% to go today. Naturally I got distracted looking into my washi tapes journalling cards and the thousand many things I have at my pretty table.
Later at night, I get to update my memory book in this particular floral book which was given by Zawaniz. I selected my photos from my archives in Google photos and that was when I realised that I don’t really have a lot of pictures with my husband. So it was very difficult to choose a photo of the both of us to go inside the book. In a way, this will remind me to snap more pictures of the both of us together.
I printed the photos on an A4 glossy paper using the Brother’s printer. I think I need to re adjust the printing settings to get the best quality photos.
Spend the best 2 hours in my Minci Cave. Today is another day of cleaning and sorting. What an awesome way to spend my Sunday.
This happened last weekend. Our first ever batch meeting regarding a reunion that will take place in Year 2020. The BACK TO SCHOOL 2020 programme.
When our Ms President for SK9600 called out for volunteers to be in the committee to help organize and run the show – I was a bit indecisive. First of all, I wasn’t so sure if people actually remember who I was. What my name was. And comparing myself to other batchmates – I am not really at the top of my game, if you know what I mean. In other words, my inferiority complex was kicking in. Thoughts like,
orang lain ada clothing line. orang lain dah jadi specialist. nak buat sub dah. orang lain dah publish buku. orang lain dah jadi celebrity kot. orang lain anak dia dah 4. bukan setakat 4, dah masuk darjah 4 dah. orang lain kerja kt France, kat US. orang lain serve in NGO. international plak tu..
I thought to myself – if these are the srikandi’s I knew back in school, I can just sell pau for a living or not make a million bucks or how and they wouldn’t probably mind at all. Because the ladies I knew, as were going through puberty and trials of being a teenager in SBP, which is batch SK9600 – Everyone Matters.
No one is too small. No one is dispensable. No one is not important. Everyone Matters. It may not look like that in school sometimes – but deep down in everyone’s hearts especially that now we are adults, yep, Everyone Matters. Everyone is worth something.
So I volunteered and turned up for the meeting. I was glad I did. The transformation physically and personality wise of all who came – was astonishing and WOW! I couldn’t help loving them more.
We divided ourselves into 3 different committees. I raised my hand to be in the Creative Group. I am not so sure if that is the right move but somehow I was very inclined to be part of it. Macam instinct gitu. Perhaps this was the path I needed to be in to get to where I want to be.
Hobonichi ambassador. LOL. I had my other vote of confidence from this video as well.
So the ball has started rolling. There is a lot to be done on top of our daily job and duties as a wife/mom. But it will be exciting and rewarding none the less. InsyaAllah.
I did a list of things to do. I accomplished less than half of it. I was having too much fun.
.. and this was what happened behind the scenes.
The layout of the pages in my HoboMinci is still experimental. I wanted it to be more like Amy Tangerine or Aina Kristina but I seemed to be quite frilly like Rainbowholic. Hahaha..
Reading just became cool again. Thanks to our education minister, Dr Maszlee malik. Netizens are sharing what they’re reading, only that the choice of books are mostly the same. Within my circle that is. Maybe it is because we borrow books from one another. Ha ha ha.
Almost all my friends has Paulo Coelho’s The Alchemist on their favourites list. It would be interesting to see other mind-opening books you know. But yeah, those who love Mr Coelho’s book – ain’t he great?
Because of the hashtag, I have picked up my momentum in reading again. This time using the Google Playbook platform as well. It makes me look less like a nerd when I read on my phone. Friends would think I’m scrolling on Instagram when in fact I have my nose in a digital book like a modern Belle of Beauty and the Beast.
So if you’re an avid reader, a bookworm as your alter ego – do drop me a comment down below regarding good books I should read. It can be fiction, parenting books, skills book , management stuff, psychology things, history even.. or language related. As long as its a title that makes you feel awesome, happy or enlightened when you recommend them to me.
Share your good book title.
