Home. Due to Covid-19

Pantai Morib, Selangor. Early March 2020

Friends, can we all remember how different the world was just a month ago? As I’m writing this I am at home, on Day 7 from the 14-day Movement Control Order. That’s one week. It’s an order by the government of Malaysia as an attempt to contain, or at least slow down the infection of Coronavirus in this country.

I’m sure I am not the only one. I am sure, you who are reading this are also on MCO, or partial-lockdown, or total-lockdown, or curfew….. whatever they call it in your country. We are all in this together. For humanity’s sake.

But if you aren’t home because you got to go to work in essential services during this trying time; Thank You for your services and your sacrifice. May you be protected by God. đź’•

Sincerely,

Hanna

Negaraku

I sing and stand up to Negaraku almost on a weekly basis. The national anthem never fails to exude emotions from deep within me, no matter how much I’ve listened and sang along to it.

However, today was different.

Today.

This morning, right after Subuh and between my milk coffee, I had the urge to grab my earphones, my phone and searched for Negaraku video on Youtube.

It didn’t take long for my eyes to well-up and warm tears slowly fell down on my cheeks. My dry morning lips formed a smile as more tears fell.

Never have I felt this moved by Negaraku post General Election.

Happy Malaysia Day!


It’s 16th September today and that means, Malaysia Day! Us Malaysians folks know how important this day is to us. Coincidently this year Malaysia Day falls on Friday. So yay! Long weekends again! 
As mentioned in one of my earlier posts, I’ll be celebrating this special day with my family as there are two birthdays today and tomorrow. Fun time!

Enjoy the long weekend and for the rest of you all over the world, I wish you have a great Saturday & Sunday.

Triclosan: Why it’s a huge deal – Not Just Itchy Skin

Hey guys,

I just got an email from Andrea, the lady inventor of Scratch Me Not. The email shares the latest news: The FDA announced that triclosan is now banned. Gasp!

Apparently, triclosan is an ingredient usually found in antibactirial soaps and gels. I remember using a facial cleanser with triclosan as an active ingredient. How scary is that?! Smearing my face with this harsh pesticide!

Read more about it on Andrea’s blog here;

Triclosan: Why it is HUGE deal.

Hopefully this article helps us all in finding safer products for our family, while at same time not compromising the effectiveness of the products.

Keep making smart choices.
