It's been 5 days since my birthday πŸŽ‚. A very low-key one this time around. . Thanks to my brother, my sister-in-law & nephews for celebrating πŸ₯³ #mausday! Thanks, Mothernature, for the birthday present too. My sunkissed face is blessed by Your Love. Haha. . Thanks, everyone who wished and prayed for me on the 10th December onwards. I'm still receiving your wonderful wishes and prayers. That, I'm eternally grateful for. . I usually celebrate 🎊 my birthday until 31st December. Just so you know. 🀣 . #birthdaybabe #birthdaypost #decemberbabe #decemberbabies #decemberbaby #sagittariusrocks #sagittariusseason #grateful #thankyou #appreciationpost #birthdaycake #birthdaycelebration #celebrationoflife #inthenameofbirthdaycake #mausday

Am I enough? Everyday I ask myself this. . I'm no Tengku or Tunku or anyone related to the Royal family. I'm not even beautiful or gorgeous. Standing at only 4' 10" with voluptuous behind, I'm often a subject of ridicule.... for the past 33 years. . But I learned not to take any of the jokes or demeaning comments to the heart. They hurt but I'm a pro now at taking them all in. I've embraced my imperfections. . Most importantly, I look past my flaws & fears nowadays as I prefer to count my blessings. I'm very blessed to be a 1985 baby as I get to experience both analog and digital world. I get to witness the greatest shift in the Malaysian government, knowing that change is sometimes a risk you gotta take and hope is all you have. . . I am only human. I have my moments of despair and at times, I just wanna lie down on the bathroom floor and look at the ceiling for hours as I cry. . . But why do I need to give in to such depressing thoughts? Just remind myself that Allah is Great. He's always giving His Best Soldiers the greatest challenges. . . Every hardship comes ease. Alhamdulillah, I've achieved and experienced a lot within a year. I'm writing and teaching. Doing two things that I'm very passionate about. I even spoke to a bunch of strangers in four separate events talking about #muslimtravel & #marketing. Also, a Year 1 English workbook with my name as the #author is coming out next year, 2019. . . . "Had to have high, high hopes for a living, Shooting for the stars when I couldn't make a killing, Didn't have a dime but I always had a vision, Always had high, high hopes" - High Hopes by Panic at the Disco. . "When the sharpest words wanna cut me down I'm gonna send a flood, gonna drown them out I am brave, I am bruised I am who I'm meant to be, this is me" - This Is Me, Keala Settle, The Greatest Showman . So, I am enough. Happy birthday πŸ₯³ to myself and all the 10 December-borns! @julesj_here @zherpeenut @mawaddahalias Datin Rosmah Raven Simone Emily Dickinson! . . . #empowerment #quotes #happybirthdaytome #decemberbabies #decemberbaby #blessed #sagittarius #sagittariansrock #thisisme #positivevibesonly #writer #hijabster #hope #lyrics

Feeling rather uninspired. I don't have the motivation or write about anything lately. I strongly believe it's due to lack of travelling out of Malaysia this year (Singapore trip .. was for work). Not even my 'annual' visit to Australia πŸ™or Thailand. Here's a throwback picture of Maus on El Garbi Mountain β›° , Valencia, Spain πŸ‡ͺπŸ‡Έ. Where shall I go next year? #positivevibesonly #wanderers #travel #travelphotography #itcyfeet #wanderlust #hike #hiking #ontopofamountain #mountain #spain #valencia #elgarbi #espana #missingtravel #misstravel #bfftrip #europe #europetravel #muslimtravel #hijabstertravel

It would've been his 84th birthday on 23rd October 2018. Of course, I may seem like I haven't "moved on" but how does one "done" mourning over someone they love wholeheartedly? I had always been a daddy's girl but now, I am slowly understanding my own journey. I may not be where I am now, if he was still around. I would've been too complacent with myself and life that I won't be "forced" to be independent and had the desire to look after myself. I remember one of my crazy ambitions when I was 15.... I wanted to get married by 20, have 10 kids and end up as a "soccer mum" who owns a cafe + book shop by 35! That didn't happen but I have so much to be grateful for. I may not be married yet but I have fantastic support system (family and friends) that keeps me going. I may not have 10 children but I have 15 adoring kids every Saturday looking up to me & let me be their fun Teacher πŸ‘©β€πŸ« Erica aka weekend Mum. I may not own a shop or cafe but I'm on my way to be an author/novelist πŸ˜‚, insyaallah. I'm slowly discovering what I'm good at.. what I enjoy doing and next step is to be better at it. Prolly following my late dad's footsteps in literature AND education. That being said, I am open for emcee & writing ✍🏼 job after working hours and on Sunday!

Alhamdulillah. Eternally grateful to @itbasia for approaching us, @tripfez and invited us to speak at ITB Asia in Singapore. On behalf of Tripfez, I had the chance to moderate a very insightful panel discussion on Muslim Travellers and their spending habits with three amazing panelists, Mr Ahmad Dzuhri from HW Lima (@mihas_malaysia), Ms Rosemarie (of Ranee Boutique Suites & The Marian) & Ms @hannahfpearson of Pear Anderson Awesome turnout too. Thanks for joining our discussion. Hope it was informative. . . #tripfez #panelist #itbasia2018 #muslimpavillion #muslimtravel #travel #startup #entreprenuer #moderator #speaker #panelist #paneldiscussion #panel #muslimindustry #halaltravel #halal #positivevibesonly #happymaus #moderatormaus #muslimtalk #singapore #marinabaysands #conference #traveltradeshow #networking

Alhamdulillah. . September. Always an 'eventful' month for me. The month I framed this picture of my graduation back in 2007. My niece, Ayin's birthday πŸŽ‚. She's more like a sister to me. And also.. the month of my late dad's passing. Definitely a month where I'll have mix feelings about.. every single year. . Late Dad, I miss you dearly. Thank you for educating me AND spoiling me as the youngest child should.πŸ€— I thank Allah for lending you to us. At least you got to see me doing pretty well in my career & was always supportive in whatever I decided to do at the time. I used to believe that I was a 'Jack of All Trades'.. Still am, hopefully πŸ˜› . 7 years since you're 'away' to be with the Creator. Slowly, I understand that everything does happen for a reason & Allah is the Best Author. . I know you'll be proud of me, old man, if you're still around. I'll be speaking & moderating a panel next month in Singapore, insyaAllah. And the book I wrote, will be printed by then too. Can't wait to see my name on a book cover! . I'm (co) championing a roadshow team & so thankful for this opportunity to work with awesome colleagues. Will be going to Penang tomorrow for Matta Fair at Setia Spice Arena this weekend. All penangites who love to travel, do drop by booth 44, yeah? πŸ™‚ . #positivevibesonly #happymaus #staystrong #imissmylatedad #septembermusings #septembertragedy #septembertravels #travel #tripfez #itchyfeet #jackofalltrades #multipotentialite #panelist #panelistwannabe #authortobe #author #writer #content #contentwriter #eventmanager #eventplanner #hijabster #talented #multitalent

A man I used to date exclusively once said this to me,"How is it someone who's an extrovert like you can be so into books?". Excuse me... I can still be an extrovert and love some time alone making love to books! To be honest, all this labelling "extrovert", "introvert" and "ambivert".. is kinda confusing. On a funny note.

Finally, I am willing to move on and I'm on a journey to heal. Initially, a dear friend of mine and I started an instagram account to join others in fighting against depression & wanted to create a platform for ppl to share with us their feelings and thoughts. A place to express ourselves. That didn't work out. What's more painful is that she decided to stay away from me & I had to let a wonderful soul go away from my life. I didn't want to be the reason of her pain. I shattered into million pieces inside but I refused to mourn for someone who had made up her mind and set her heart to push me away. Thanks to those who followed us and supported our initiative to fight depression. With this, I would like to revamp the instagram acount and will post my poems instead. To those who haven't followed the account.. do show your love for me πŸ’œ at @whenheartheals. . . . #healing #breakupsucks #moveon #movingon #whenheartspeaks #whenheartheals #healingheart #depressionnomore #goodbyemylover #goodbyemyfriend #farewell #friendship #throwback #lateupload #pain #qotd #igs #igrant #rant #penang #hijabi #hijabster #sorrybutnotsorry #heartbreak #brokenhearted #positivevibesonly #likeforfollowers #sabr #journeytohappiness #journey

Eid Mubarak to all. 😍 --------- A note to late Ayah, Annuar Ayub. Dear Ayah, I miss you 😘. If only you could see me now. I am still unmarried but I know you won't mind that at all. You were always so strict about education and raised me to be a strong and independent woman. You made sure that I had a good education and a happy childhood. In retrospect, you had been so supportive of my choices and decisions, even though you didn't quite agree with them. You bought me a guitar just because of that one time, I expressed my intention in writing songs. You had faith in my writing and poetic skills. Once, you told me,"You should write a book someday." When I was still unemployed after my graduation back in 2007, you asked me to consider becoming a teacher πŸ‘©β€πŸ« because you said to me,"You're really good with children and you have lots of patience and passion for people." Look at me now. Leading the Content team and teaching English. If all is well, there will be 'Author : Akmar Annuar' on a book cover. I've written an English workbook for Year 1 students. Insyaallah. Allah has written a beautiful journey for you and I, Ayah. So grateful to be raised by such a wonderful man like you. Happy Father's Day. May Allah repay your kindness and love for loving me as your daughter and ease His punishment in the grave. From the one who'll always miss and love you, Nor Akmar Maulad Annuar ------ #followers #instagood #instagrammers #fashion #anotetothegrave #fathersday #dadslove #anote #from #theheart #missyou #purple #favourite #michaelkors #newyork #eidmubarak #hijabi #modest #modestfashion #blackheels #author #teacher #contentcreator #writer #quotestoliveby #jackofalltrades #multipotentialite #multitalented

Don’t let anyone make you feel unworthy. If you’re feeling unworthy, it’s yourself making you feel that way. Love comes from within. -a wise man's advise. Some time three or four weeks ago, I was in the 'hot seat' again. But this time, the experience was more humbling. I was in a room full of university students & the other panelists were all business owners/entrepreneurs who are very passionate about what they do. They shared their success and failure stories.. and I was just a minion & the only female panelist for the session. However, despite me being the most 'junior' panelist for that session, I do hope the students did gather some good tips from Ms Maus. 😝 Are you a wanderer or a go-getter? #panelist #panel #mausatwork #happymaus #sharingsession #businessweek #intikl #entrepreneur #entrepeurship #paneldiscussion #universitystudents #talk #forum #contentmarketing #panelists #business101 #tripfez #startups #startuptips #tips #wanderer #gogetter #leadership #followers #quotestoliveby #womenempowerment #empoweringwomen #empowering

Still hopeful.....after 5 years this photo was taken in #bristol. I shall meet him someday, insyaAllah. Not because I deserve someone who loves me or finally having my own life partner but because the time is perfect for me. I have faith in His plans. He has given me the opportunities to meet amazing men for the past few years but He Knows best. This is a test for me. While I am not giving up in finding my soulmate, I have embraced my singlehood too. I'm learning each day to be kind to myself like how I'm being kind to others. I take this opportunity to further 'find' myself and stop searching happiness in others as the happiness begins with me. I'm learning what 'redha' means. On a light note, I'm looking for new friends who are good friends with Princes or multi billionaire entrepreneurs and willing to set me up fr a blind date with them. Please DM me. I'm very friendly and a fun person to be with. 😜 #single #singleandreadytomingle #promoteself #happymaus #blinddate #searchingforaprince #wheresmyprince #newfriends #fairytale #bristol #throwbackthursday #joke #redha
