On life and future

Hello, there.

I went flowers-hunting with my family a couple of days ago and I bought a few of my favourites! As you can see from my previous posts, I love flowers so much and every week (or two) I'd buy a fresh bouquet for my room. Unfortunately, the prices of fresh flowers are expensive in Malaysia than in Australia which make it harder for me to continue this weekly routine here. But fret not, because this is where the artificial ones come to the rescue! Haha.

So what I bought was some roses, tulips and lilies from Kaison.
I'm glad it helps to bring more colours to my room!
The room feels more friendlier now.

A good news for me is I'll be starting my life as a student again soon! Insha'Allah.
With Allah's permission, I've been offered a place to continue my studies in the Universiti Malaysia Sabah. The program that was offered to me was Master in Counselling Psychology. Alhamdulillah. Somehow I think it's a good opportunity for me to gain new experiences too. Hopefully everything will run as smoothly as possible. Insha'Allah.

I wasn't expecting this offer and wasn't even looking forward to continue my studies (although I did mention that I wanted to pursue my studies in the UK). I changed my mind a few months ago and decided to find some jobs or start my own business to help me build a stable life. Unfortunately, I didn't receive any feedbacks from the places that I've been applying for jobs except a few. Then came this offer, I decided maybe I should give it a try. Insha'Allah Allah knows what's best for me. May Allah ease everything.

Another offer that I've received a few months earlier before this recent offer came to the mail was from one of the universities in Notthingham, UK. I was so excited and thrilled to receive the offer. The university offers me to do Master of Science in Psychology. However, I didn't accept the offer due to several reasons. Of course, I feel sad because it was one of my dreams but I had to give it up. Again, I believe that God knows best.

To be honest, I find it much better to study in Malaysia for now. With what is happening to the economy in Malaysia, at least furthering my studies here would help me save up some pennies.

Please make du'a for me.
Jazakumullah khayr.


  1. Assalamualaikum sis! I have been reading your blog for a few weeks now and I look up to you a lot as a Bruneian Muslimah who might In sha Allah be studying Psychology in Brisbane too! (discovering your blog was definitely an awesome coincidence! Haha) What was it like studying abroad as a hijabi? Was it hard? Anyways, I pray for your success and semoga Allah will guide you and help you in your ventures :)

    1. Waalaikumussalam. Hi there! Thank you for spending your time reading my blog hehe. I really appreciate that. First of all, congratulations for the offer and don't worry you'll have plenty of great time in Brisbane! Insha'Allah. Surprisingly, it wasn't that hard and I enjoyed every minute I've spent there. It was definitely the best experience in my life. Thank you for the du'a as well, jazakallah khayr. And I pray that may Allah ease everything for you while you're studying in Brisbane. Amin xx
