TAGGED: 20 Facts About Me

Sorry for taking so long to post up a new update. However, '20 facts about me' tag has been trending on Instagram and I was tagged by one of my bestfriends. So, here are 20 facts about me:

  1. Behind the name: Nur means Light and Syahadah (or "Shahadah") is the Islamic Creed, one of the Five Pillars, which translated "There is no god but Allah SWT; Muhammad SAW is the Messenger of Allah SWT". The name was given by my beloved mum and she is Muallaf. I am the first generation Muslim on my mother's side.
  2. My downfalls are coffee and sweet things. Yes, I have sweet tooth and I am heavy coffee drinker.
  3. I am mixed race -Ibanese and Arab (Maternal) and Javanese (Paternal).
  4. I don't eat spicy food simply because I can't stand of spicy at all. Bummer.
  5. People always mistaken me for having a brother, but I don't have one. Also, most people thought I was the only child in the family. Nope, in fact, I have 8 siblings including me and all are girls.
  6. Born on July 20th. My mum told me that I was only 7 months and half when I was born.
  7. I suffered Jaundice when I was small. Then when I was 7 years old, I had to go to the hospital for ear surgery due to ear infection.
  8. People often think I look younger than my age. Asian perks, I guess.
  9. I LOVE CATS. They are adorable-looking creature with fluffy fur.
  10. My first job was a part-time barista when I was 18.
  11. I work better under pressure and yes, I procrastinate a lot. (I bet most people do the same)
  12. I wanted to be an architect in the first place because I love to draw and buildings at the same time. Somehow, I was led to a different course due to my SPM (Sijil Pelajaran Malaysia) result at the time.
  13. I bite nails whenever I type something or sitting in front of the computer. I don't know why.
  14. I enjoy watching documentaries about past civilization and fantasy creatures such as dragons, sea humanoids, etc especially mermaids. I do believe that they still exist somewhere in this world.
  15. I play certain games such as Diablo II and III, Heroes of Might and Magic III, V, and VI.
  16. I have a habit of keeping plastic and paper bags, price tags and receipts (plus, cinema tickets).
  17. My nickname is Syd. People often mistaken Syd as "Syed" and think I was a boy. My so-called-original nickname was (and still is) Syada and many of my friends can't pronounce my name properly or they say my name wrongy so I shorten my name to Syd.
  18. I am 5"3'. I wish I was taller.
  19. My signature colour is Black because I think Black suits with anything.
  20. I hate horror movies (and movies that have zombies in it). I never have the courage to watch these types of movies alone nor even with my friends and family around. I hate the suspense.
Thank you.

AUGUST: Makeup Haul


It has been awhile since I last posted my update. However, I decided to delete all the old posts about my past life and start off with a fresh one. Today, I would like to post up this month make up haul. I bought a few things from Sephora, which are three things, specifically, as follows:

1. SEPHORA Bronzer - RM65

I picked this one up as whenever I apply my foundation or BB cream on my face, my face tend to be flat. The shade that I picked is Medium (No.2) as I have warm undertone. I love it as the shade made my face really stands out, whenever I do contour under the cheekbone. It is very light-weight and most importantly, no shimmer! Plus, it is in compact and easier to use.

2. SEPHORA Pore Scrubs - RM22

I have large pores and whiteheads all over my face and I needed this holy grail pore scrubs --or the real name is Precision Pore Cleasing Pad, also, from Sephora. I use this almost every single day, well, once a day. I love this because first of all, this pad helps to minimize my (gigantic) pores and the bristles on the pad really helps to scrub out all makeup residue that clog my pores too. For whoever make this, thank you so much. The size of the pad is pretty much small but it has handle at the back for me to hold it while circling around the face.

3. SEPHORA Multicolour Lipgloss - FREE

As you can see from the package, it is a birthday gift from Sephora and I absolutely love it. I never actually see a stick of multicolour lipgloss before. The smell of this lipgloss reminds me of strawberry and love how the colour stays on my lips for a few hours. Thumbs up for this bad boy!
