Selective Seminar for Hiroshima Peacebuilding Training

0 Responses
If you have been following my instagram, you'd probably wondered why the heaven am I in Davao. Well, I am here for the Selective Training for the Hiroshima Training on Peacebuilding and Public Administration. 

Let me tell a little story.

Last August, a Japanese came to our office. She was inviting people to apply for the HiPeC-BM programme. So, I applied. I didnt really expect anything. I just wanted to try my luck to go to Japan. :) Guess, I am extra blessed. I got into the 34 accepted applicants.

Then, Davao.

There were like gazillion mind-boggling quizzes, exams, and a workshop. Quizzes and exams were essays. The challenge is to write a very concise and brief answer. Why? Because Japanese are really direct to the point kind of people! It is really hard to do that, you know. On the workshop, we were asked to look for issues, criticize issues chosen by another participant, make resolution, enhance resolution of another participant. All of which, we will do in 1, 2 or 5 minutes. Difficult is an understatement.

Then the finale has come. The announcement of successful participants to go to Hiroshima, Japan next year.

#5 was called. It was written on the white board.

I AM GOING TO JAPAN!!!!!!

Ma sha Allaah.

I still can't believe everything. It's like everything just fell into right place.

Lastly, lemme put in here what I posted in my FB account:


"I realized that whenever I have full trust in myself and in the qadr of Allaah, I will always get what I fathom. Ma sha Allaah. I've always lived in my tiny cocoon ever since I started college. It prolly rooted from my frustrations (not being able to take interior designing). I have to start my metamorphosis now and be that free and beautiful butterfly. Guess I am working through it. Alhamdulillah, In a month time I would be able to experience Japanese design. Get a closer look of a japanese dojo (my dream home, with a touch of Tausug culture). Wear kimono. Eat sushi. Learn Niponggo.

All of these, I am soon to experience just because I started believing in myself again and just because I have put all of my trust and hopes in the Qadr of Allaah."



Toodles,

Many portable multimedia devices do not support certain video file formats. That is why you need videoconverter software for converting the unsupported format of a video file to a format supported by your device.

There are many such software available for free on the web but oftentimes they’re not adequately efficient and lacks some important functionalities that you may need.

Natural-looking Synthetic Wigs

0 Responses
Salam ladies.

Obviously, this post is for my non-hijabi readers, especially non-Muslims. Us, hijabis, already have our own crowning glory: hijab. For those who are looking for natural-looking wigs, well, read on.

I have friends who like wearing wigs, either to achieve the locks they wanted or to have a shiny long hair. If I were not a hijabi, I sure would try wigs and hair extensions. They are very helpful in achieving any look you would like to pull off. When you have an occasion to attend and your hair style is not what you wanted for the event, wigs are really of great help.

Lately, I've stumbled upon this wigs shop in the net. Well, I am one of a kind researcher. I could just research about anything - from fashion to house decors or history. I am a bookworm of a different genus - webworm that is. I browsed the site more just because the wigs looked so natural. I would not, for a second, doubt the authenticity of the hair of the wearer of the wigs from the shop. Really!



Anyway, this site that I was talking about sells wigs made from synthetic chemicals and those made from real human hair. Cool! And guess what? On 28th of November, they would be having their own Black Friday Sale. Discounts can be as high as 90%. Like, what a steal!!!!

So, if you happen to be looking for affordable yet quality wigs and hair extensions, you know where to go: http://shop.wigsbuy.com/s/black-friday-12



Have you worn wigs? If so, did you like the experience? Let me know in the comments. ^___^

Pretty Dresses for Bridesmaid Wear from WeddingShe

2 Responses
Salam ladies. 

You have normally been seeing a lot of wedding dresses and gowns in this blog. For now, let's move over to the bridesmaids. Aside from the bride, there are several girls who are really excited for the wedding And they are none other than her bridesmaids. They have to be second-prettiests on the wedding, you know. 

I've already told you that I am working with Weddingshe.com on bringing you some of my thumbs-up-worthy dresses from them. And I am gonna show you my top three again. You can see these dresses and many others on this link: http://www.weddingshe.com/list/Bridesmaid-Dresses-10069/

Since I am currently obsessed with pastel pink + peach, I've picked my top 3 Pretty Dresses for Bridesmaid Wear of the same colour. Bear with me. :D


At number 3 is this dress with peplum-ish lace top. The bridesmaid will look gorgeous with this dress.It also hides the belly part which most of us have enormous problems (keeping it flat). So yeah, this is definitely a thumbs up.



At number 2 is this very lovely dress with florals made from the same cloth. It will bring out the sweet and romantic look for the bridesmaids. I would love this in other colours as well such as tosca, cobalt blue and crimson. 


And my number one has to have laces and florals. haha. I know, I am bias! This would have to be the perfect wear for any wedding. Sweet, romantic, not really showing much. Just perfect. In my case, I would have to get myself a blazer, but I would still rock it. 

Weddingshe sure knows my tastes since they have these in their products. They are continuously been having sales and discounts. So you have to always check their site. 

Anyway, out of the three dresses, which is your personal fave? Lemme know.
