Solat subuh jam 2 pagi

Assalammualaikum and Hi guys!

Okay, this morning something happened and I found it to be so funny.

It's just my typical clumsy day. I just start practicing to wake up at 5am. I'm not a morning person. So to wake up by 5am is a real struggle.

So, in order to ensure that I will wake up by 5am, I set my alarm clock and my phone alarm too. So, by the time my clock alarm rang, surprisingly I woke up immediately which rarely happened. So, without further delay, I straight away ambil wudhu and ready to solat subuh.

After finish my solat subuh, I wonder why my phone alarm didn't rang? when I checked my phone its just 2am in the morning gais, 2am! I forgot to change the time. and this is not the first time. I mean solat subuh at 2am.

When this thing happened for the first time, I stay and shared my room with my friend. She thought that I buat solat tahajjud because that time I tengah broken heart.

Do you think its funny? or it's just me.

Resepi spagetti carbonara murah jimat dan banyak


Hari ni saya mau share resepi spagetti carbonara. Beli bahan-bahan semua dalam RM30 tapi hasilnya dapat makan 6 orang dewasa. Ngam-ngam makan habis licin semua dapat semua kenyang. Alhamdulillah!

Tips untuk dapatkan kuah banyak, sedap dan berasa walaupun pakai 1 tin prego saiz kecil ialah tambah susu dan cooking cream. So, tekstur dia xkan cair. Susu tu untuk cairkan carbonara prego dalam tin. Pakai air boleh tapi tak sedap sangat dan kurang rasa.

Bahan-bahan seperti dalam gambar. Untuk memudahkan para pembaca, saya akan senaraikan satu per satu.

  • Spagetti 
  • Carbonara jenama Prego
  • Cooking cream
  • Susu low fat (kalau ambil full cream takut muak)
  • Sosej (saya tambah udang, tapi tiada dalam gambar, mau tambah ayam pun sedap)
  • Kiub ayam (tak letak ayam kan, so letak ni la untuk perasa)
  • Pasti sedap (da letak ni xpayah letak garam ajinamoto)
  • Bawang putih

Cara masak:

  • Rebus dahulu spageti sehingga lembut. Agak spagetti sudah masak, titiskan sedikit minyak. Sebatikan sebelum spagetti di toskan. Ini untuk mengelak spagetti melekat bila kering.
  • Bawang putih cincang halus.
  • Sosej potong kecil-kecil.
  • Masukkan carbonara prego, susu dan cooking cream. Kacau sebati.
  • Apabila mendidih masukkan bawang putih dan sosej.
  • Masukkan 1 kiub ayam maggie dan serbuk perasa pasti sedap.
  • Biarkan mendidih seketika.
  • Siap untuk dimakan! 

Insyaallah, sedap. Cuba la.

Tips menulis setiap hari untuk pelajar postgraduate


Some of the postgraduate students wait until the end of their studies to start writing their thesis. I start developing my daily writing habit when I was doing my master degree. Because my supervisor keeps on reminding me to write every day. I am still struggling to write every day. I am a slow reader so it takes me so much time to come up with an idea and write it down.

If you consistent to write every day, it will give you the motivation to write more the next day. Trust me. But of course, there will be some time when you have no idea what to write and how to start. When I'm super stuck to continue the writing, I will draw a flowchart, if it still not work, I ask my supervisor 😀

Usually, I spent a minimum of 1 hour and a maximum of 3 hours (of course I have at least a 30min break) every weekday.

I don't like and can't do last minute writing. My English so bad. So, I need some time to produce high-quality thesis writing. Usually, after finish writes, I will read again and again. So, my writing will go through a lot of amended until I satisfied enough. So, the whole week actually spent on writes-read-amend one task!

When I decide to write every day, my greatest challenge was to figure out how to start and what to do? Here are ten ways to do. It is not all about writing only.

  1. Decide what writing task need to do
  2. Prepare a cup of coffee (a must for me 😀)
  3. Write on a blank page
  4. Edit something you have already written
  5. Check references (my worst mistake during my master thesis, but thanks to Mendeley)
  6. Summarize journal you have read recently that might be relevant to your thesis
  7. Compile older documents you have written before
  8. Check the flow of your compiling document
  9. Check grammar
  10. Check format (spacing, margins, font size, table, figure, etc)
 Good luck uols!

Tips menghadiri temuduga biasiswa postgraduate

Assalammulaikum and how are you?

Its been a long hiatus. I had submitted my Ph.D. research proposal earlier this year and applied for both a scholarship and funding here at the Universiti Malaysia Sabah. 

Officially a Ph.D. student on 11 August 2018. 

I got the email to confirm an interview that took place on October 10th, 2018. The scholarship is open 2 weeks after registration (for a Ph.D. student). The two months following the application date were a bit nerve-wracking, to say the least, but that period of time confirmed my strong desire to do a Ph.D. 

Some of the questions I was asked during the scholarship interview:

  • Introduce yourself and family background
  • Could you please explain your research in simple words? 
  • Do you think you'll be able to graduate on time?
  • What is the obstacle that might prevent you from graduate on time?
  • What is your source of income for now?
  • How you manage your finances?
  • Did you receive any scholarship from UMS during your master study?
  • What is your plan after Ph.D.?

There are 3 panels and 3 interviewees. The interview session took almost 45 minutes. They want to know more about you, they want to ask as many questions as possible to gain evidence for their belief in you. whether you are qualified enough to receive the scholarship. Luckily I manage to answer all the question with confidence. Actually, this is my 2nd scholarship interview after MyBrain. My 1st interview did not go well, so I prepared enough for this interview. 

I think because of the panels so friendly and they conducted the interview in a relaxed situation that helps me to perform well. I still waiting for the result. Wish me luck. 

If you have an interview coming up – good luck! 

And if you are waiting to hear about an interview – hang in there!! 

Does anyone reading this have any other tips about interviewing or any questions? I’d love to hear from you.

Until next time 🙂

Waste in Ramadhan


Hi guys! I hope it is not too late to talk about overspending and waste in ramadhan. You know those months when it feels like you spending money every day? Yes, ramadhan and syawal.

Overspending during ramadhan (this obviously spent well for foods) and for raya preparation (baju, kasut, tudung, mekap, kuih raya, langsir and so on), its kind like that raya setahun sekali jak so why not to spent extra just to look more glamourous for 1 day. Baju cantik dan mahal tapi pakai 2-3 kali sahaja. Sebab too glamorous and hanya sesuai di pakai ke majlis-majlis tertentu. Berbaloi ka? the answer is up to you, Ukur baju di badan sendiri.

What is the real waste in Ramadhan? Ramadhan should be used wisely on ibadah instead of spending and shopping because the "rewards" for each ibadah on ramadhan is something that you cannot gain on normal days. So, in my opinion, rugi la kalau kita tidak gunakan bulan ramdhan ni sebaik-baiknya lebih-lebih lagi 10 puasa terakhir.

So, hopefully this ramadhan will make us better in term of ibadah and spending.
