May Favourites | 2020

I have to be honest, I thought by the time May ended, so is the RMO. Guys, I'm out of stuff to add in this monthly favourites but don't worry, I still have some to share here with you guys. So May went by so fast that I can't believe I was hoping that it won't end that quickly. Ramadan went by in a blink of an eyes and here we are celebrating Eid but doesn't really feel like Eid, more like normal days but I'm not complaining because even during normal Eid, I'd glued in front of my laptop doing my own stuff watching my favourite shows while my cousins busy entertaining their guests and look like a mess haha.

Anyway, I didn't bake as much as I did during April and March, my sister did most of the cooking and all I did was sleeping and play with my nephew. Sometimes I shop online too. Macam dah kaya sangat. So here's my May Favourites.


━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━

BROWNIES BY AINA

Every year, during open house my sister will always order a bunch of desserts and lucky for us, the person that my sister ordered our desserts from, live in our neighbourhood haha . So we got so much discount for 2 boxes of Nutella Brownies and a box of Mini Cheese Tarts. All of them are RM100 only. If you live in Puchong or Seri Kembangan area, you can order from Aina Syafikah.

AIRPODS PRO MUJI PAPER BAG CASE

I'm the type of person who always buy cases first before the actual device. I mean I bought the Airpods case before I bought the actual Airpods, and so was my phone and now my Airpods Pro. I ordered this case from Aliexpress because knowing the long shipping duration, I have to order this first before I even buy the Airpods Pro because Airpods Pro will arrive before this case does. I ordered this Muji case on March during the first phase of RMO and it arrived 2 months later. I really like this case because it's big and bulky, plus it's Muji, everything with the word Muji on it looks super cute, including this paper bag case.

EID OPEN HOUSE (EID MENU)

On the 3rd Eid, I know this is against the law but since we lived so close to each other, we invited some friends over for our small Eid Open House. Less than 20 people of course, we don't want to spend the rest of the month in jail. Yeah we thought that this year is not going to happen but we made it happen even though we only have close friends over, not even relatives but that was okay. I hope next year will come upon us (inshaAllah) so we can organised a bigger open house for all relatives and friends. I am glad everyone loves our Curry Mee, Kuey Teow and my sister's Chicken Rendang ⏤ and of course the brownies too. Thankfully we have 2 more boxes of brownies in the fridge so everyone can have a taste.

Despite the fact that we're under RMO, that doesn't stop a lot of people to enjoy Raya or Eid in their own ways. I helped my sister made Kuih Kacang (Peanut Gravy), Rendang Ayam, and Rendang Daging. My brother's friend gave us a couple of Lemang, my brother-in-law's mother send a couple containers of Serunding (Beef Floss). And we bought a few packets of instant Nasi Impit and Lemang. We used to make more but to be honest, this is more than enough for our small family.

NEW PRINTER

Printer is not really a crucial equipment for a bullet journalist, it's an optional device but you can't help but to agree that it comes very handy if you have one. You can create so many stuff because you can find tons of free printable stickers, inserts, planners and so many more. For me, the reason I bought it is because I really want to do (and hopefully finish) my Korea Autumn trip spread before 2020 ends because I did my 2016 spread halfway due to lack of resources aka photos. So this time I can print whatever photos I want to use it on my spread and on top of that, I use the printer to make my own stickers too.

DIY STICKERS

On my previous post and the paragraph above, I mentioned that I like making my own stickers. Even though the process is meticulous and tiring because I still couldn't squeeze some time to buy glossy paper for an easier sticker making process, I still find this activity very comforting. I get to enjoy my own time, sticking double tape and cutting it according to the shapes while watching movies or my favourite shows. It helps me relax and the results is satisfying too. I made enough to last a whole year. And above photo is my Malaysian and Singaporean Boba series that I found on Pinterest. Currently making my Seoul Street Food stickers for my own personal use.

MAY MOVIES (EID MOVIES)

1) Nostalgila

A story about 3 strangers carpooled together from South to North. Zett was looking forward to spend Eid with her family, Kid was running away from her family because she found out she was adopted and want to find her biological dad to spend Eid together with, while Haq just want to celebrate anywhere he can go to commence his secret Eid misison. But series of unfortunate events unfold upon them that makes their journey impossible to reach on time. This movie is so hilarious and fun to watch with your whole family.

2) 17 Puasa

About a group of married men cheating about fasting and eat in a broad daylight behind their wives' back until.. they get caught. This movie is so hilarious and my whole family enjoys it no matter how many times we watch it. Also, 16 Puasa is equally funny too. 17 Puasa is the sequel by the way.

3) I Know What You Did Last Raya

An old Eid movie that we still love to watch. About a group of adult childhood friends excited to go back to their hometown and along the way, they accidentally hit an old man with his goat and to make it worse, they just left him and his goat by the roadside just like that. Consequently, they were haunted and disturbed by blackmail notes and by the old man himself. The characters and plot twist of this movie what makes this movie so hilarious!

BULLET JOURNAL

I tried to keep May Monthly Plan a bit simpler than my previous one. Nothing too bright, too big and all of those stickers from my Seoul spread are from my own making. I also had fun doing my Seoul Autumn trip spread. I am currently doing Seoul spread for day 2 and 3 also doing my NCT 127's Punch and movie After spread. I'll keep it posted.

NCT 127 PUNCH (COMEBACK)

I have to include this one because I forgot to include NCT 127's Kick It and Neo Zone comeback in my last monthly favourite. So NCT 127 is back with their brand new single and new repackaged album called Punch, packed with old school video game themes, concept and music. Punch is a single with an urban soul touch like you can hear old school game vibe when you listen to it especially during the intro. My favourite part is during the bridge because I got my boys Johnny and Taeyong at the front centre which is a rare sight for JohnTae fan. Also, I'm working on a bujo spread for this comeback so.. look forward.

━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━


So that was my May. There were more but most of them are mainly food and more food and I don't want to flood this post with loads of baked goodness. My June so far is equally good. And ever since we celebrated Eid and gave the frontliner the break they deserves, I think I'm seeing some silver lining in Malaysia. I believe that we can heal completely but remain cautious as well as banned international flights in and out. The government allowed more sectors to be fully operated with stated SOP so people are starting to go out for work and hangout like normal days but with restricted rules. I still need to get use to our country's new norm. A little annoying but necessary.

So, have a blessing Eid to those who celebrating and thank you for reading.

    1. Alhamdulillah ada masa terluang sikit boleh lah nak buat journal. Untuk buat sticker pulak, sambil2 jaga anak buah, Tqa duduk kat meja sambil menggunting hahaha untuk design lain cerita pulak, tunggu anak buah tido baru cari material and compile everything before printing it out. Senang je sebenarnya.
      Hahaha Thank you, tengah sale, Tqa pun beli je lah sementara tunggu yang plain case sampai.

  10. DIY stickers to comelnya. I never knew boleh buat stickers sendiri. Why not Tqa jual kalau dah terbuat banyak tu since you find it relaxing kan. But nanti banyak sangat order, susah jugak. Dah tak jadi relaxing T_T

    1. Senang je kalau nak buat. Especially kalau ada glossy paper. Tinggal nak gunting je haha
      Tu lah, ada terfikir nak jual tapi kena beli kertas glossy dulu baru boleh jual.
      Sebab kalau jual kat orang yang guna double tape tu rasa inappropriate pulak hahaha
      But it's okay, dapat sibukkan diri. Bila dah siap semua baru open order hehe
      Thanks for the idea :)

      Me too! I can see that the blogging world is a little slow this month because everyone is back to their normal working days so it does feels refreshing to be able to read new blog posts from fellow bloggers too.
