Worth Your Time: Antologi Jiwa Kacau

Bila kali terakhir aku buat review novel eh? Lama jugak ke baru? Kesah pulak aku nak review apa. Tapi kalau review novel dari aku, lagi banyak novel thriller/seram lah berbanding novel cinta. Yes, I'm that keras person liddat. Sampaikan pakwe cakap: "Dear future kids, don't read thriller novels like your future mom do. It scares me, a lot." Aiceceh. Mengada lettew.

Okay sebelum aku meleret ke topik cinta yang tak sepatutnya. Tadaaaaa!


Nama dah antologi, so ada banyak lah cerita dalam ni. Ada 5 totalnya:

#1: Tragedi di Lampu Isyarat; Elle Mardiana.
Twist yang aku dapat dari cerita ni sangat power. Kesan yang mendalam yawww. Terutama part-part seram, ngeri. Tak usah kabo. Best =)

#2: Menari Dalam Duka; Attokz Dikulgai.
Mengajar aku erti kesabaran dalam menghabiskan cerita ni. Mula-mula aku fikir nak skip jugak. Tapi bila aku mendalami, oh I wish I know Arzam Domino (by the way watak dia suka makan Domino's Pizza) okay tu je nak cakap. Ada sinar-sinar keinsafan lepas baca cerita ni.

#3: Dendam Bunga Dahlia; Lyn Dayana.
Power, power. Dan buat watak dia hidup dalam ketakutan. Buat aku tak sabar nak habiskan. Banyak menghapuskan sisa-sisa dendam dalam hati aku. Dendam tu boleh buat kita membunuh. Dan membunuh ituuuuuuu....... *buat gaya cikgu* okay dah. 

#4: Buru Bayangan Luka; Dhiya Zafira.
Susah, kalau jadi pesakit mental dan berusaha bagitau semua orang yang kau percaya; yang ada orang nak bunuh kau! Sedangkan orang normal pun susah nak buat benda yang sama. Twisted story, awesome.

#5: Cinta Berdarah; Salina Salleh.
Kalau dah cinta, manusia sanggup buat apa saja. Tapi kalau yang dicinta itu sudah tiada, mengapa masih menekan diri hingga merana. Kesian dengan watak Helmi ni. Kesian jugak dengan Aisyah. Hmmm. Kesian.

Sebenarnya, adik aku yang berminat dengan novel ni, aku tak pandang sangat lah awal-awalnya. Tapi ada benda yang menarik pasal cover dia, macam memanggil-manggil. Dan aku sangat mudah jatuh cinta pada cover novel yang power-power ni.

A novel that worth your time. =)

Conversation: Mental Health and Self-care

We had a conversation in the car. 
About mental health in workplace. 
It was a very sensitive topic to me since I was diagnosed with bipolar disorder. Having bipolar means the depression is worst. The period is longer. Then BAMMMMMM mood swings, anger, eating disorder, grieve, anxiety came along. 

But we were talking about it because I was a high-functioning person with bipolar disorder. I didn't get medication for more than two months now, and believe me, everyday that pass by is just me throwing my body to the wall and breaks like a piece of ceramic and pick myself back again with bare hands. It's hard. 
I didn't get medication, I didn't get counselling, I didn't get psychotheraphy. I was struggling to do self-care, I was struggling to sleep or wake up. It was a battle everyday, and to think about it, I just started a career. I was marching in a battleground every morning. 
Mental health in workplace has been recently a raised topic in Malaysia, since there is s…

My Daily Skincare Routine

Invest in your skin. It is going to represent you for a very long time – Linden Tyler.
I believe in good skin care, makes you least need you make up and you can even have a better, brighter canvas to put on. Having a healthy skin also shows you're healthy and well-hydrated, so yes, drinking water is important. I usually put on 2L of water inside me, forcefully. It makes me visit the toilet often, but seeing my skin glow is just another set of happiness!
I just learned to take care of my skin because when I apply make up, my dry skin looks so flaky and tired. I have to spent more time to look better. I have oily-dry combination skin, which the T-zone is oily, but my sides and cheeks are dry. And very very dry. Drinking water helps me, but I need more than that. 
So every morning, I woke up with a cup of water. Usually ice-cold water. I am not a fan of hot drinks. 
And I wash my face with Garnier Pure Active Matcha Detox Pollution & Oil Deep Clean Facial Foam. It feels so rich …

Buku Tebal Challenge by @BookendsMY

Everyone who knows me know that I am a bibliophile - and I'm targetting myself to read 60 books this year (Follow my 2017 Reading Challenge on Goodreads!)
So on July, a reading community called BookendsMY had organised Buku Tebal Challenge, where we got to read a book, over 500 pages, and post our reviews about the book in any platform. I always loved Goodreads because it allows writer to read comments about their books and interact with them, too.
Follow me on Goodreads!
So my pick for the Buku Tebal Challenge was American Gods by Neil Gaiman.


Check out what I say about Gaiman's American Gods:

Phew. It was a roller coaster ride for two days I spent on this book, ignoring everything that happened in this world just for Shadow's adventure.

I can't find anything that I hate about this book, truly a read that brings the meaning of belief and religion and emotional attachment and detachment, value of life and death to a person, and to believe that something has bigger powe…
