Raudhatus Sakinah and Julaybib

Last weekend, Team Syuhada of Kindness Malaysia (Penang region) went to Rumah Raudhatus Sakinah (RS) in Sungai Bakap, Penang.

Raudhatus Sakinah was established as an institution that provides shelter and counselling to victims of teenage girls that are mostly the victims of social illness such as abuse, mistreatment, neglect, psychological stress, rape, incest and so on. RS tries to help teenagers who are involved to boost their self-confidence and their ability to become a useful person to society and religion.

RS has been in operation since August 1998 under the operation of the Wanita Pertubuhan Jamaah Islah Malaysia (WJIM). RS is an ongoing project to help people deal with social problems, especially among teenagers. RS has officially registered under the Care Centre Act 1993, the Social Welfare Department.

The RS home in Penang was opened in 2007. Besides Penang, RS shelters are also available in Sungai Buloh (HQ), Kelantan, Johor and Kuala Lumpur.

The kitchen cabinet project

My love for DIY stuff broadened from just making handmade card, simple handcraft, beading my own wedding dress or scrapbooking to home d├ęcor and furnishing. After the kononnya successful DIY projects at home, which I call Projek DIY AminJulia 1.0 and 2.0, I asked husband for more DIY projects. So we decided to do a makeover to our old cupboard to a simple kitchen cabinet to place our some still-in-the-box wedding gifts.

Yes, we did our projects including painting in the living room. -____-"

LG Pocket Photo Printer

I have not done any reviews since my Nokia N8 Maxis 10 entries. This post is specially dedicated to Paeh as he's the one asking for it – and yeah to tell you guys how cool my new gadget is. :p

I found my new LG pocket photo printer by chance. I was actually laptop-browsing with husband at a computer store in Penang. There was a big sale on the store so there the store was packed with people. I saw this gadget in a glance on our way out of the store and it caught my eyes, and heart since I was also thinking of buying a new Polaroid style instant camera. But I didn’t buy it on the spot, neither got the chance to really look at it with the crowd at that time.



I googled and read about the photo printer and started making comparison on the pros and cons if I buy the photo printer or an instant camera.

Lucky iPad Mini

The Camera Museum, Penang did a lucky draw contest on the Facebook fanpage and the winner would get an iPad mini. I saw the post on their FB page somewhere in October and totally forgot about it. A day before the closing date, they post a final reminder for those who wanted to join. It was as simple as post your photo in The Camera Museum, and get minimum 20 likes to be eligible for the lucky draw.

So I looked for my photo when I went there, post in on their FB page, and spammed my family & close friends asking them to like the photo before the closing time. I had only few hours left! I think by the time the contest was closed, I only got like 21 likes. Just nice! But I was thinking - Please la they don't choose the winner by the highest like the photo got, or else confirm lah I won't get it. Hahaha.

Days past after the closing date and I totally forgot about it, until a FB notification came in - a cousin just liked the photo of me (yeah after the closing date). Then I remember, eh, have they announce the winner? So I checked The Camera Museum FB page and need to scroll down and down and down (they post photos on their wall like 20 photos a day - nasib baik lah beautiful photos :p) and saw......
