.: Hayye Ala Al-falah :.


The azaan app.

Finally back on the blogging realm for a quick post. 

One of the things I had been busy with was doing the translations for the Hayye Ala Al-falah azaan app. Alhamdulillah, the app was finally released on 14 November 2017, on the App store, for IOS devices. 

Here are some screenshots:








If you happen to use an Apple product, or knows someone who does, it would be a great privilege to me if you or your close ones can download the app and provide honest feedback. This will greatly help the developers to make significant improvements, to make the app better for everyone.

Here's the download link:  Hayye Ala Al-falah azaan app

.: With practice :.


Comes great patience.



Started learning the art of folding jiuhe earlier this year. Never really got the hang of it until just recently. Sure took a a great deal of time, patience and perseverance in order for me to reach to the level where I am now. And I am thankful to have been given the opportunity to go through this path.

On another note, I have gathered a higher level of respect for those who make jiuhe as their main source of income. Even with the right skills, it still takes a lot of time and effort to create something that not only tastes good, but looks good too. 

Handmade food, are, and will always be, worth every bite. 

Off to the lab.

.: The update :.


Long overdue.

Finally found the time to update my details under 'The Writer' tab. 

For the past few months, I have been busy with our business over at Kaijia Muslim Food. From the initial stages of setting up the business, to creating the website and curating social media posts, I have to admit, it took a toll on me. 

But that is all in the past now. I have gotten the hang of things (I hope) and I figured it is time for me to resume with enhancing and diversifying my freelancing portfolio. To be honest, I still find it hard to believe that I actually miss writing financial and business articles. Given a choice, I would rather write about food, or eating, or anything that has to do with food and eating. What is there not to love about food? 

Anyway, I was informed that some clients had difficulties locating my contact information. To make it easy for future clients who happen to stumble upon my blog, I have included my email at the upper right-hand corner of this blog. I am not sure if it shows on your mobile, but if you happen to read this post, feel free to drop me an email at hajar.alwi@gmail.com. I will definitely get back to you the soonest possible.

Now that I have gotten these items off my chest, I have to go do some research on social media marketing, to further equip my knowledge about it. You can never know enough now, can you?

.: A test :.


Against fear.

She hesitated. 

Despite the nurse asking her to relax, the patient hesitated. 

 "You are 21. So am I. We must be brave. You can do this. I promise it will only hurt a little. Now close your eyes and trust me." 

And the nurse inserted the needle. 

She screamed. 

She cried. 

She was horrified. 

The nurse then said;

"We are done." 

She stopped crying. 

Baffled. 

The nurse repeated her words; 

"We are done. You made it."

Against the odds.

.: Final rites :.


Passing through.


When a dear one leaves this world...
One would usually say...
Now...
There is a void deep within our souls... 

Yet...
How can there be a void when the memories are still very much intact?
And the fact that...
The very person...
Lives on in each of our lives? 

I suppose... 
Death... is hardly the end of a single life... 

Death... in its truest essence...
Marks the beginning of the lives it has touched... 

To remember the person with a clean white slate... 
An emphasis on the good, the smiles and the laughter... 
The ups and downs...
As well as the tears of joy...  

At the end of it...
Death...
Helps to make us better people...  

Till we meet again...
In our final resting place...

In loving memory of my brother.
