A postcard from where I'd rather be. Well a retro Vogue snapshot. Take me to the books and the beach 📖

Currently working the 1pm to midnight shift at my clinic. Wishing I was curled up at home with a hot chocolate and a really good read ☕️ oooh maybe some popcorn too. Please everyone tell me how you’re spending your Friday night so I can live vicariously through you 😂 • • • • • • #bookstagram #bookstagrammer #bibliophile #bookworm #goodreads #bookish #yalit #bookphotography #booknerd #booklover #currentlyreading #bookaholic #yafiction #booklove #yabooks #tbr #instabooks #vscobooks #bookaddict #igreads #bookporn #vsco #bookstafeatures

The more I spend time alone and become better in befriending myself, I am finding that we, as humans, consist of so many Spaces underneath ourselves.. I could even imagine, there are, and will (always) be undiscovered parts of ourselves. I see that emerging by pushing myself harder every time, never stopping to challenge myself; inward and outwardly. And in between those spaces, we then have other spaces.. and it keeps going on just like that... an endless cycle of Spaces. And that is why I don't stop most of the time, always yearn to discover new experience and abilities. I get a lot of headache sometimes, but the satisfaction of being able to achieve it is priceless. I turn mostly into the art world; music, cinema, painting, writing, sewing books, crochét, cooking and baking.. But along with my passion for the scientific world, also makes me realize even more of how small our existence is in this vast Life. And it (really) doesn't matter what I do and cannot do, I am a speck of just Nothingness.. . . And that's where traveling comes in, to see "bigger things", to see a wider perspective, to find how even smaller I am, and everything that I do only matters and comes back to me, for me. It sounds selfish, but maybe that's one thing Humans are helpless of resisting. No matter how far I go, it only reminds me of how even smaller I am. And I like that feeling.. that I don't matter.. that I'm just here for the ride.. this long, ongoing ride of Life. And to be able to feel this open, and filling up this much space (and intentionally leaving some empty), thank You, Life :) . . _ Reading Richard Sylvester's "Non-Duality Questions Non-Duality Answers", this was taken on a train ride of my last trip, from Yogyakarta to Solo, a city of where my father's family originates, a city where I spend a lot of time at during my childhood, of which I found so many discoveries on the roots of who and what I am. So much nostalgia and pleasure ☺ . . #SwaraJiwa #forthesakeofsomeEmpiricalKnowledge

↡↡↡ ❝When people say impossible, they usually mean improbable❞ —————————————————————————— This is what I look like when I finished a beautiful and amazing book. 😍 . Amazing weekend everyone! I’m spending my rest day in the hospital for my spine check up. Ugh. Anyway, what are your plans for this weekend? 😍 ——————————————————————————

I miss autumn, dearly. I can’t wait for leaves to turn yellow or red. I can’t wait for autumn rain, cozy sweaters, blankets, and foggy days. I can’t wait for golden sunset, for pumpkin spice latte, for candles season. I can’t wait for it to arrive! Do you love autumn too? 🍂🍄 . Happy Pentecost Sunday to you who celebrate it ♥ May the grace and unending love of God fill your heart with peace and joy :) . . .

All the essay writing, and all the procrastinating. Also, thank you @theliteraryowl for the reading recommendation! I can’t wait to start this one. ☺️

What is your favorite city/country? I don’t have a clear favorite but my hometown, Penang (duh) and Taiwan are some of my favorites! 🌸 The adventure has begun! Between long train rides and flights I’ve started reading To Kill a Kingdom and several other books 😅 🌸 . . . . . tags | #bookstagram #books #bibliophile #booktography #bookworm #booknerd #booklover #bookstagrammer #bookaholic #bookaddict #reader #bookaesthetic #instabooks #instareads #mybookfeatures #vscobooks #vsco #vscophotography #bookadventures #traveling #booktravels #thediaryofladymurakami

Повествование в этом произведении идет о первого лица прямым потоком мыслей и событий, что происходят в жизни главного героя, молодого журналиста, кстати. Разделения на главы нет, сюжета как такового нет. Не так интересно, как прочитанные мной его другие книги - «Мулей» и «Наивно.Супер». Но силы и время не считается потраченными впустую, если и абсурдноавангардная книжка заставляется задуматься. В других нас раздражает то, что есть в нас самих. Конечно же, многие слышали о такой простой истине. Так ведь? Я верю в нее. Ведь, это, действительно так - то, что действует тебе на нервы в ком-то и есть твоя собственная проблема. Именно поэтому меня жутко бесил главный герой с его вечными причитаниями о воде, о потоке, о реках, океанах, обо всем, где есть вода. Ведь вода – это неуправляемый поток! Его нельзя взять под контроль! Это перемены! Всё должно быть устойчиво, согласно плану и никаких отклонений. Да. Да. Да. Боязнь перемен и стремление держать всё под контролем – неприятные моменты в моей жизни, с которыми я нередко вступаю в схватку и с каждым разом более успешно ) #bookstagram #book #ilovebooks #vscobooks #vscobook #vscobookgram #instabooks #booksworm #booksread #reading #readingtime #instadv #insta27 #instapic #instalike #vscokhv #vscocam #vscocamgram #loversbooks #loversbook #loversbooks #booklover #booklovers #bookslovers #instakhv_27 #instakhv_ #instakhv27 #vscokhv27 #vsco27

It’s done! I worked out Wordpress and created my blog (finally!) I thought I would write up an introduction about my reading experiences so that you can get to know me a little better. I’m currently adding the finishing touches on my first review but I’m hoping to have It finished soon 🌺 . . The link to my first post is in my bio! . . #QOTD - What are your first memories of reading?

Lailah's Lunchbox, written by Reem Faruqi and illustrated by Lea Lyon, is a fantastically adorable picture book about a young Muslim girl, Lailah, who is fasting for Ramadan for the first time. She is excited! Last year she wanted to fast, but her mother said she was too young. This year she is old enough, but because she has recently immigrated to the USA from the UAE, she is scared of what her classmates will think of her. She doesn't know how to explain fasting and Ramadan to them. During lunch, she hides in the library and confides in the school librarian. The school librarian encourages her to write down her feelings and share them with her teacher. Lailah writes a poem about Ramadan for her teacher. Her teacher loves her poem and asks Lailah if she would like to read her poem for the class. • I love this picture book! The story, which Reem Faruqi based on her own experiences immigrating to the USA as a young girl, is super cute! Lea Lyon's watercolor drawings are lovely and expressive. Lailah's Lunchbox is a solid picture book that will make a great addition to any library! • If you haven't already, you should definitely check out the Ramadan Readathon! The goal of the Ramadan Readathon is to read books written by Muslim authors during Ramadan. #ramadanreadathon @muslimreadathon • QOTP: What are some of your favorite books written by Muslim authors? • • • • • #bookstagram #bookgram #booktography #instabooks #kidlit #bibliophile #booknerd #bookphotography #booklove #book #amreading #books #diversebooks #weneeddiversebooks #nature #vsco #vscobooks #diversityreads #igreads #bookstagramfeature #picturebooks #picturebook #ramadan #representation #ownvoices #muslimshelfspace #lailahslunchbox #reemfaruqi

This is probably the most important work to be written in the twentieth century. Just as relevant today. Orwell once wrote “I do not wish to comment on the work, if it does not speak for itself then it is a failure.” This book was banned in my country but somehow we had a copy of it! And it is my all time favourite
