Unboxing A Mystery Box from Eyqa

Hey there! Alhamdulillah, I got to update again as it is currently Chinese New Year school holiday! Although I still have tonnes of homework to do and an upcoming English oral test next week, I feel like writing instead. The problems I've stated in my previous post are not done yet, but whatever it is, I'm not leaving my blog yet. So here I am, writing a post that I've procrastinated to do it for a very long time.

This is a post that I've promised someone to write one, which is Eyqa. Although she had changed her blog name, you might know her as DEWI. Without her, this post will not even exist. Before I start, I would like to give big thanks to Eyqa for giving me this amazing box! If you've ever been to my second blog, you might notice that I've joined a contest held by her at the end of last year, which is a Mystery Box Giveaway!

Alhamdulillah, I won the giveaway! Thank you so much for picking me as the winner, Eyqa. And I'm very sorry for being very late on posting this unboxing post. I had received the box weeks ago, and the pictures here were all taken on the day I got it. This post has been in my drafts for some time, so yayyy finally I got to publish it! So, without further do, let's see what's in the very mysterious box!

It is wrapped in this adorable polka-dot gift wrapper. The box inside is a shining silver box!
"Happy unboxing Liyana Jasmi! Sincerely, Eyqa of Dewi"
I'm already happy when I received the box, Yayyy, let's dig in!

There is a total of 6 items in the mystery box! I swear everything in it are amazing. Plus, Eyqa left a cute pinky note on each one of them! Let's got through them!

The first thing I grabbed from the mysterious box was this very cute strawberry keychain. I'm currently using this on my home keys!
"DEWI was originally named with ICHIGO. It's meant strawberry & I can't move on from the fruit."

The next thing in the box is this eye mask! I swear it is so cute. There's actually a little mouth between both of the eyes, behind the pink note. I have used this a few times already, hehe.
"For you to sleep well at night!"
Awwwwww, I did!

Next, a notebook! Fun fact, I love notebooks. I used to collect lots of notebooks because I love to write so much. I have a friend who gives notebooks as my birthday present every year!
"Do not limit your imagination."
Seems like Eyqa knows me well!

I couldn't find the pink note for this one but heyyy, a mask! I don't usually wear masks; I did only for a few times. But I must say that I'm pretty excited for this one! I haven't tried it out yet because I love it too much that I still want to keep it (feel me? lol). No worries, I will definitely use it as soon as possible! And if it's good then I'm so going to buy more of it hehe.

Omg, Eyqa gave me the first ever novel by Zoe Sugg aka Zoella entitled Girl Online! Gosh, I wish I could read this like right now, but my mum only lets me read SPM related book (seriously). She would be mad if she knew I still read novels because she knows that I might abandon my studies. Lol,  just kidding. But ayyy, I'm so freaking excited to read this!
"A book about blog! So you'll remember how we met! :D"
Awwwww, of course, I will!

Last but not least, a black and pink shirt by Manuk Tarabang! This shirt fits me perfectly. The words written on it are " Bebeh #SUMANDAKSABAH" with the brand logo. Another fun fact, I love to collect shirts too! Especially jerseys. So, yayyy for another shirt to add to my collection!
"Best selling cloth from one & only Manuk Tarabang."

Those are all 6 gifts Eyqa sent to me in the mystery box. Thank you so much for these prizes! I didn't expect to get these much items from you, hehe. Plus, they're all amazing! I love and appreciate every single one of the gifts, and I'm so excited to use them soon and more! It's very kind of you to give away these gifts to people, Eyqa. And not forgetting all the pink notes you've left for me! I still keep all of them, tho. Hehehe.

Now I feel like doing giveaways like this too, where I give mysterious prizes to random blogger! Isn't that awesome? Hehe, maybe after SPM? Insya'Allah.

It was a great unboxing experience as it was a mystery box. I was very curious to see what's inside! So, that's that for today. Now, I need to finish up my homework and get my oral test script done. I'll be back with more great post and stories!

My Current Blogging Problems

AHHHH, I can't believe I've left my blog again when it's only the fourth week of 2017. It's not even a month of school yet, and I've already felt the tiredness and how busy I am. This is going to be just a quick post, or maybe a ranting post. I'm trying my best to update as fast as I can as I'm currently writing this at 12 AM and I have school tomorrow.

I know I've been gone for a while and first of all, I'm truly sorry. I have a few reasons, and here I am, trying to explain to you guys one by one. I'm telling this so that if I ever went missing again, here's why, I guess? Gosh, I'm not even sure what's going to happen next but here are the reasons why;

Blogger stressed me out
Warning: This is a rant.
Please know that I was so freaking frustrated when I was writing this post. I didn't plan to write this one at first. But guess what happened? I was actually writing another post before this, and I thought it was saved as Blogger usually automatically save our the post throughout our writing process, right? After I've finished my last words, I saved and closed the editing post tab and went for a quick blog walk from my reading list.

When I came back to the editing section of the post I wrote previously, guess what? Everything was GONE. All the words and images in the post were NOT SAVED. I WAS SO HELLA FRUSTRATED. I've sacrificed a lot of my study time just to update my blog, and this freaking Blogger didn't save my content that I've written for hours! Believe me, I was so mad that I went into my room, shut the door and screamed. I was so stressed, guys. It has only been a few 18 days of school, and it already stressed me out, and Blogger just made everything became worst. I want to cry. This tragedy really made me lost my blogging mood for a whole week.

Tonnes of homework
Dude, seriously. Homework is slowly killing me. I mean, yes it's normal for us as SPM candidates to have lots of homework, but because of them and my tuition classes, I end up not having enough time to do things I like that I usually do. For instance, blogging. Again, I know it's totally normal, but this is one of the reasons why I've been gone for awhile. Just saying.

Tuition classes every day
I used to only have tuition classes 3 days a week, and all of them are after 8 PM. Well, sadly, this year I started to have tuition classes 5 goddamn days a week, and 3 of them are in the evening, after 4 PM. I've never thought I would have tuition classes in the evening, but honestly, it's my own decision. Of course, SPM purpose. I'm trying to find the best classes for me that I think could really help me for the upcoming big exam this year, so this is the result. 5 days of tuition classes a week? Yeap. #roadtospm2k17

So many activities
Other than tuition classes and homework, of course, I do have cocurricular activities too. I'm now in my senior year and other than focusing on curricular stuff, we also have to gain cocurricular marks too. Plus, I have a few positions in my clubs and uniforms, so I just have to attend. It's like a compulsory. Also, I still play a sport for my school which is softball. Which literally means I have training and practices to attend. I've been at school on Saturdays lately, too. There are just so many school activities that are making me a bit busy now.

No internet access
This is like, my current biggest problem ever. It has not been even a month yet that I've moved to a new house. And currently, we still have no Wifi. The UniFi team or something, or should I say, Telekom Malaysia, is having a few problems with our house area. They said something like "oh the port there is already full lah, you have to wait for another one" blah blah blah which I don't really understand, but basically we can't use UniFi anymore (or, yet) and we might have to take internet access from another service like Maxis, Streamyx, YES or others. But whatever it is, it's hard for me to go online especially on my computer because of this. For now, I'm using my mum's personal hotspot. Overall, it's very hard not to have internet access. Not only blogging, but I also can't even search for points for my upcoming oral test. AHHHH.

Tired as hell
Overall, I'm just tired. As you guys have read all of the above, you can tell how packed my schedule is and how tired I would be. It's not even February yet, and I'm already tired. Lol, I swear I need more motivations. But no worries, I'm still trying to cope with these things, and I believe that insya'Allah, I will be okay with this kind of schedule soon. Just need some time to bear with it, you know.

I really wish I could often update although many of you would like me to focus on SPM. Yes, of course, I'm focusing, but at the same time, I don't want to abandon my blog. I need to settle my biggest problem first which is the no internet problem. Once I have the internet access in my house, I will update more.

Mainly, my life as a student is kind of blocking a little bit of my blogging life. Please, wish me luck for this year. Again, I'm very sorry for not updating, but I will definitely come back whenever I get a chance like this again. Insya'Allah, hehe. Till then, I'll be back soon!

Hello 2017: New Years Resolutions

It's 2017! Yay or nay? I don't really feel anything. All I think about was my new room and my senior year in high school. As you know, I just moved in, and I finally got a new room! My theme is purplish pink with dark brown furniture. Once my room is 100% done, I'll do a room tour post. Insya'Allah, hehe.

How did you celebrate this New Year? Am I the only one who didn't do anything? The only thing I do was watching fireworks from my room's window. My family and I were too tired to even celebrate it. Even on this last day of school holiday, I believe that everyone else is busy preparing for school, and here I am, still unpacking my things. Pray for me.

I can't even believe that I'm a Form 5 student now. My heart aches every time I think about it. I still feel like I was just in Form 2 (Form 2 is the best for me), and now I'll be sitting for SPM in 10 months. Time is flying too freaking fast! And honestly, I'm not ready for school at all. I'm too busy to even prepare for it. I need help. Plus, I have tuition class tonight. Ahhh, I swear I'm not in the mood!

Okay, Liyana, stop it. I'm getting too far. Let's continue about 2017. Actually, I wanted to publish this post yesterday on the first day of this year, but I haven't got any time. Now, I finally get to sit in front of my computer and run my fingers on this keyboard. I've been thinking about my new year's resolutions, so I decided to share them with you guys!

Be extra hardworking
Of course, as an SPM candidate this year, I have to be more and more hardworking. Alhamdulillah, my Form 4 year results was more than enough and I'm very grateful. Now, I have to maintain and also improve my study skills to be better each day. My parents are hoping for me to get good results, and I want to make them proud. Study smart, dear self! #roadtospm2k17

Get organised
As I've mentioned before, I regretted not using a planner and wanted to start using one this year. I've bought one at Popular, it's a daily planner. I've already started using it and so far so good! I also have a Bullet Journal. I don't know how to explain this, but it's basically like a DIY planner + journal. I've been watching videos on YouTube about bujo, and I wanted to give it a try. I hope I'll be very organised now! Hehe.

Become tidier
I've finally had a new, own room, so I have to be tidier. I used to have a not-so-tidy room as it was also my dad's home office at first. It's not even an actual room. That's why I'm so damn happy when I got a new one. So, of course, I'm going to keep it clean and clear! I've designed the room, and I don't want to ruin it.

Facing my fears
I'm a scaredy cat. I don't like horror movies, haunted houses, and anything related to ghosts. I'm ashamed of myself, to be honest. When I went to Sunway Lagoon with my friends last year, I was the only one who was terrified to go into the haunted house. All my friends were excited about it except me. I hate myself for being like that. I want to overcome my fears this year!

Stop procrastinating
This is my same new year's resolution each year. I procrastinate a lot, and I know I have to change myself as this is also a part of keeping myself organised and hard working. I'm not going to talk much about this as I've already had a specific post about it, click here to read it!

Save money
I get pocket money for school every school day, so I did save some money last year. But it didn't work out that well as in the end, I'd always use them. I have so many things to buy and food to taste, even my mum always counsel me to stop being wasteful. So, this year, I'm really going to save some money. And I may create a bank account and asked my mum to keep the card for me. Lol, I don't know. Whatever it is, I'm saving extra money this year as I have things to buy for my blog too!

Read more
I have many books that I haven't finish or even start reading, so I have to read more. Not only novels but textbooks and revision books as well. It's sad to leave books unread, right? I feel bad every time I look at those unread books on my shelf, so I'll try to read more this year.

Reduce my time on TV, computer and social media
This is going to be hard as they're my source of entertainment, but I'll try my best to spend less time on the TV, computer and social media. To focus on my studies, I have to do this. I don't know how I'm going to achieve this but wish me luck! Goodbye, Korean dramas. Lol, just kidding. I'm still going to watch them, maybe one or two. Hehe.

Blog more and more
Although I'm avoiding to be too much on my computer, I still want to be active in blogging. Blogging is my passion, and I don't want to leave my blog again like what I did back then. I'm still going to update my blog at least once a week, insya'Allah. I'll try to stay active; I'm only going to be on hiatus for maybe 2 to 3 months before SPM.

Eat healthier and be more active
During this whole month of school holiday, I eat a lot. I don't have many things to do except for being in front of my computer this holiday. By that, I'd eat, be online, and sleep. Pretty much. I haven't weight myself yet, but I can feel my weight increasing. I'm so going to eat healthily and keep my body active by going for a jog or something. Lol.

Learn to bake and cook
I love baking so much. In my family, my mum would do the cooking, and I'd do the baking. This is one of my hobbies. It's not like I'll bake often or something, I know you guys will be like "focus on your SPM pls". Well, this is my activity after SPM! After my school life is over, I've planned with my mum to have fun in the kitchen. I'll learn to cook and bake more delicious food. Yay!

Teach myself to be grateful
This is also my every year new year's resolution. I'm very grateful for everything I went through in 2016. All the ups and downs, twist and turns, and thick and thin. I'm hoping for a better 2017, With more happiness and less stress. I'll teach myself to be more patience, grateful, and positive! Cheers for 2017!

I have so much more resolutions but here are all the ones that I'm very looking forward too. Overall, my primary goal is to study hard and study smart for SPM. This is my last year in highschool, and I'm so going to do my best. Wish me luck for SPM 2017, guys! Hehe, thank you.

I hope all of you had a great new year. Now, let's get ourselves together and accomplish our goals and resolutions this year! Let 2016 sink in and rock our 2017. Whatever you're doing, I wish you guys a year full of happiness and blessings!

What are your new year's resolutions?
Happy New Year, guys!
