Ramadhan is Coming & I Miss China So Bad!

Assalamualaikum and hello again guys,

Terawih starts tonight and I always get an epiphany when Ramadhan is coming. It's 30th Syaaban and it's raining today. I don't know, I kinda miss China very much.

My first snow experience, Alhamdulillah!

A throwback pix of Melati and I in Beijing. I totally forgot to puasa when I was in China. But I traveled everyday and it is almost impossible to fast.

I should text Melati and say hi.



Selamat berpuasa & berterawih!

My Kinabalu Story - Part III: Important Notes!

Hello again guys!

I don't know where to start. There's just so many things to share and I just want to clarify that all the things that I share here is my personal experience. Some of you may not agree, but if there's anything missing, you may add it to your list or leave a comments down below.

This time, I'd like to share the things that you might need to know before you hike.

1. Personal ID Tag
Before you pass the Timpohon Gate, it is extremely crucial for you to have the ID Tag. This is your permit and you have to display it all the time. The organizer will print your name and details of your trip on the tag. What happen if you lost it? You will not allowed to pass and you will not receive any climbing certificates. FYI, it is a CRIME for entering Mount Kinabalu without permit.

*On a very, very, very serious note: Make sure you have registered on the CERTIFIED team. Because they are so many Kinabalu scammers out there.

2. Mini Spray Water Bottle
Subuh (Fajr) at Sabah is slightly earlier than Peninsula Malaysia, approximately around 0430. So if you are a Muslim, I would advice you to carry a small spray water bottle From Laban Rata (Panalaban) to the Summit. You can do your subuh at the Sayat-sayat hut, but there are usually so many people take some time to rest before they continue their journey.

You can just stop somewhere flat and perform subuh there.


3. Sandals/ Slippers ARE NOT ALLOWED!
You have to wear shoes all the time! Some of the rocky surfaces are very slippery. Wearing shoes is the best way to protect your feet. Trail shoes aren't so bad too. High cut or low cut is up to your personal preferences, but if you have the waterproof shoes, that's good too. Just in case if it rains.

On my way to Laban Rata, I saw this one girl from Taiwan was injured badly and she didn't wear any shoes. A mountain guide carried her at his back from Laban Rata to Timpohon Gate. I talked to some of the mountain guide and they said she fell at Laban Rata and wearing slippers.

Plus, there are fireman guarding the whole place at all times up there. If they caught you wearing slippers, you'll be doomed.

One of the best reasons why you should wear shoes...


4. Medical Kit
Any painkiller would work. Most of my friends have Panadol Actifast and some AMS pills. You will never know what will happen when you are hiking. It's cold, windy and there is not much oxygen up there. Make sure you hydrate properly or else you'll faint.


5. Extra Drinking Water
Back in the days, you can actually refill your drinks at each hut. Unfortunately the last time I visited Kinabalu, the water tank is no longer there. There's only one water station which is at Sayat-sayat Hut. You can purchase it at Laban Rata but it is expensive.


5. Sunblock, Lip Balm and Moisturizer
It is really dry up there. Nuff' said.


6. RESPECT MOUNT KINABALU
This is EXTREMELY CRUCIAL. Please don't do anything stupid or crazy up there. I'm a Muslim, but I do believe every places has its own spirit or guardian and it is a sacred place. In 2015, one month after my Kinabalu trip, there's this one group of notorious hikers did something so stupid and extremely disrespectful on the mountain, you can read it here. And guess what, there's an earthquake right after the incident.

Call me superstitious or anything, but please.


7. KEEP OUR MOUNTAIN CLEAN :)
Last but not least, keep our mountain clean. Do not litter, do not vandalize the environment.

I guess that's all for now. If you are unsure, ask as much questions as you want before you hike. I hope my advice helps :)

My Kinabalu Story - Part II: Hiking Tips

Assalamualaikum & Hello again!

So this time, I would like to share some useful hiking tips and share my 2015 experience with mount Kinabalu.

Let's start with the things you should do before you start your Kinabalu journey. These are the five tips I can give you after I complete my Kinabalu mission.

1. Training
Training is extremely crucial. I've read some other people's experience, hiking without any proper preparation and they are so fortunate they reach the summit. Unlike me, I did not make it in 2015. No matter how fit you are, never ever underestimate Mount Kinabalu. Because you will never know what will happen when you are climbing. You could get AMS, light headed, fever etc.

Do a lot of stair climbing, squats and lunges.

Running/Hiking is not about your physical, it is about how well you know your body and how well you control your mind. When it comes to running, I've seen a lot of people, physically *fatter than me, finishes the race earlier and they are A LOT faster.

Same goes to hiking, my friend Zarith had asthma for such a long time and she managed to reach Laban Rata before sun set and reach the summit. When she comes back and do a checkup, doctor said that her lungs expanded and back to normal. Incredible right?

*Just a quick disclaimer, FAT is not a dirty word ok? I'm not being shady.


2. Invest
Personally, I'm a pure Malaysian and I can't stand cold weather. Layering helps, you can read it here. PLEASE INVEST! The right clothing, gears and food will get you there. Some people assume that hiking is once in a lifetime kinda thing and choose not to invest. If you are thrifty, you should borrow them from your friends.

For example water bladder. Water bladder is a lot more convenient because it weighs a lot lighter than regular water bottle. If you use normal water tumbler, it has mass and it is heavy.

Most of my clothing are from Uniqlo. From Timpohon to Laban Rata, I wear Uniqlo Airism underneath my TPR Orange shirt, Uniqlo Heat Tech underneath my Nike running tights. I use Karrimor bag and have Uniqlo Ultra Light Down in my bag (just in case if I need it). From Laban Rata to the Summit, I put on my Extra Warm Heat Tech shirt and pants underneath, I put on gloves, my winter jacket, snow cap and mafla. For shoes, I wear Hoka Challenger ATR. Heat pads helps too, you can purchase it from Daiso. God bless Japan hahahaha :D

Snacks, sweets, sugary drinks helps too. I brought my energy gels but didn't consume any through out this hiking journey. But I have my pre-workout drink. Nyums~


3. Smile
Trust me, smiling helps a lot. No matter how exhausted you are, never ever put on a tired face. Everyone is tired and you are not alone.


4. Positive Attitude
You have to be positive and believe in yourself. When you are on the verge of giving up, that's the best time not to give in. Not everyone will have the same pace as you, therefore, if you lost your friends along the way, talk to the person around you. Say hi, smile and ask them to be your moral support. Trust me, they need it too.


5. The Right Team
Funny isn't it? But hiking with the right people motivates and keeps you going. I'm so fortunate to have the right mountain guide and my friends along the way. I'm so lucky to have Omey as my mountain guide, she is so garang but very responsible. She's a great motivator! Listen to your guide and you will be fine.

Seems so close but yet so far away... This is just breathtaking :)

So yeah, Let's move on to the story why I did not make it to the top in 2015. Few weeks before the trip, I had Dengue fever and I was (kinda) at the lowest point of my life. I should not let the negativity gets to me. I was badly damaged but I just can't help it :(

Back in the days, most of the people on my team are serious professional hikers. They told me that Kinabalu is not that cold (tshirt weather katanya). I was so wrong, and I didn't bring the proper gears, I had a terrible AMS and I was really sick. I still remember vividly during the safety briefing at 3am. The guide keeps on telling us about a hiker from Germany fell from a cliff while taking selfies. And the story goes on and on and on. It was extremely demoralizing when you hear these stories first thing in the morning.

You have to at least reach Sayat-sayat at 5am. If you didn't, they will close the gate will not allow you to pass. Plus, you have to go back to Laban Rata before 10am. Because the cafeteria closes at 10am and if you are late, you will have no food, therefore no energy to reach the Timpohon gate. Also, you have to check out before 10am or else you have to pay. Time is money up there.

I reach the final Sayat-sayat gate at 5am and I cried so hard because I thought that I was going to die. Yeah, I reach Sayat-sayat within COT, but I did not make it. From Sayat-sayat to the summit, there are so many guide tells me to stop and quit. If I can turn back time, I should not listen to them. I did not even reach the St. John's peak (aka Puncak Seringgit). Because I let the negativity gets me and I choose not to complete it. It was depressing but I have no one else to blame.

The taste of failure is so bitter, but don't be sad, you just have to bounce back stronger and trust me, Mount Kinabalu will wait for you. Personally, sometimes you need to experience failures too. After Kinabalu in 2015, I comeback stronger and conquered Rinjani in 2016. I decided to focus more on running in 2017 and Alhamdulillah, I conquered Kinabalu in 2018.

I'm not shy to say that I'm a repeaters, hehe... If I can do it, you can do it too :)

Good luck!

My Kinabalu Story - Part I: The Beginning

Assalamualaikum & Hello everyone!

I just got back from my Sabah trip. I'm really exhausted, but deep down inside, I'm super happy! For those who know me, will know that this is not my first Kinabalu mission. I failed to reach the summit in 2015 for various reasons (will share this later). But this time, I won't let anything stop me. I have to get it done, reach the summit, and comeback home with 0 injury.

This time, I did not tell anyone about my Kinabalu mission except for my husband and Azie. Azie happens to know because I purchased her bib for HM Borneo Marathon. Not even my parents and my employer knows about this. I didn't tell my TPR team too, because they are professional runners and I'm not even close to that. But I did tell Kak Yanti about my Borneo Marathon mission, but not this. So there.

Kinabalu has changed after the earthquake. According to our guide, Kinabalu now has more stairs but the distance is slightly longer than usual, but a lot safer. FYI, the Mesilau route has closed after the earthquake. Omey said a huge boulder destroyed the bridge during the earthquake. For safety reasons, they have no plans to fix the bridge at the moment.

My Kinabalu team. I only know the LCP boys and Zarith. But we make friends with everyone along the way :)

Many have asked me about the cut off time to reach Laban Rata and frankly speaking, I really don't know how to answer that. To be perfectly honest, I just wanna reach Laban Rata before the sun sets and reach the summit before 7am - 7am is the cut off time.

My journey starts at 0937 from the Timpohon gate. The mountain guide will do a short brief, tell us what you should and should not do, safety and last but not least, doa. So here is my check-ins time for each hut.

0937 Timpohon
0957 Kandis
1013 Ubah
1137 Lowii
1223 Mempening
1223 Layang-layang (Pondok Lunch)
1347 Villosa
1425 Paka
1519 Panal Laban

From Timpohon to Laban Rata, you don't really have to rush. Because you will need more energy on the next day. So I take some time and enjoy the journey. Sometimes I stop just to play with the squirrels and take some pictures. The squirrels here are chubby (well fed kan) and they are not shy to come near you and asks for food.

This is my friend Amir with his new pet squirrel (>__<)

Hiking from Timpohon to Layang-layang is not that hard (at least in my opinion). From Layang-layang to Laban Rata is where the route starts to get rocky and challenging. Layang-layang hut is also known as the Pondok Lunch. This is because hiker usually stops here to have their lunch. I had my nasi campur packed for lunch. Some of my friend lose their appetite as they go up, but make sure you eat and fuel properly ok?

Laban Rata :)

I'm so happy to have Belle (my new friend). She has the same hiking pace as mine and we chat as we hike along. While waiting for dinner, we take pictures around Laban Rata and wait for other team mates.

That is my journey and I will continue soon! Here's a sneak peek at Laban Rata, before we start to hike.

After breakfast, or probably supper hahahaha :D

Wiwiwiwi~

Chinese Visa Application

Hello again fellow readers. How are you feeling today? I hope you are in a good mood while reading this. I actually just got back from the China Embassy in Malaysia. Feuh, what a day!

After 11 years, I finally had another chance to go to China again. I can't believe this. Alhamdulillah.

I still remember 11 years ago when I was still so young and naive, applying for my first visa to study in China. Back in the days (if I'm not mistaken) the office was in the same building with the Bank of China. But today, it is located on the 5th floor, Hampshire Place.

I drove to KLCC and park my car there and walk to the office. I'm used to walking so I don't mind much. From Suria KLCC to Hampshire Place is not that far (at least for me). It took me about 10 minutes to get there. Malaysia is hot and if you choose not to walk, you may skip this next paragraph. Heh~

Starting from Suria KLCC, look for Ampang Mall entrance and you will see the Avenue K exactly in front of you. The road in front of you is called Jalan Ampang. Turn right and walk straight until you see Bank of China and use the flyover to cross the road. Once you reach Bank of China, walk along Jalan Mayang Sari and you will see a lot of people, a lot of food stalls, food truck and you are on the right path. Once you see the Tokyo Marine building, and boom! The Hampshire place is in front of it.

At first, I thought applying visa would be difficult, but actually it is not.

The things that you need before going:
i. Passport (Duh!)
ii. 2 visa photos with white background
iii. 2 copy of the first page of your passport
iv. A filled form (You may download it here or if you feel like your handwriting is ugly and prefers the computer, you can fill it here)
v. Flight itinerary/booking details (If you are going for holiday or vacation)
vi. An offer letter (This is optional: If you are going for a training like me, or probably because of work, you must have a formal letter)

One good tips, you can make an appointment before you come, you can set it here. But please make sure you have all the documents prepared and be punctual.

Operating hours:
Submission & Application: 9:00 am - 3:00 pm
Payment and & Collection: 9:00 am - 4:00 pm

*By saying be punctual, I mean it. They are so strict with their office hour!

It takes four working days for them to process your visa. So please don't be a last minute person like me!

I'm sorry I don't have photos to share but I will on the next one.

I hope this is helpful.

Good luck!

Strava is Onz!

Hello and how are you guys?

Is there anyone really blog these days? I have no idea. It's 2018 and I can't believe I still write and run! I guess it it's true when Haruki Murakami said running and writing is related to one another.

I changed my layout back just because I discovered Strava has a widget for blog. Back into the early days of blogging, I love to explore widgets. My favorites are the daily quotes, reading book challenge and now, Strava is on the top 3.

To be honest, I've been thinking to quit running for so many times. I'm not sure about others out there, is this normal? But the more I think about it, I always come to a conclusion how running keeps me sane and how running helps with my depression.

I guess it is a lot easier to dump everything rather than maintaining it right? Anyone can start, but maintaining it is an art. I really hate myself for giving too much excuses. Lari pun nak drama. Allah dah bagi kaki & kesihatan tapi masih mengada-ngada. I have to scrap this bad habit off. It's childish and irritating. (Sorry for the internal monologue, I talk and bebel to myself a lot)

Whatever my negative thought would be, I choose to run. I always envy others who can run fast and have the time to run as much a they could. I look back on my Instagram today and realize that I have come so far to reach this level. I won't quit running.

Running is a very lonely sport. This is so true. Even so, you have no idea how fast and consistent you can be if you have friends to run with. Because I usually run faster during events than alone. I have some running and fitness objectives this year. I hope 2018 will be a great year. Let's run!

Changing My Diet

Hello and how are you? I hope you are well. Because I'm not feeling that great lately.

I just got back from a check up. I suffered from skin hive lately and it was really hard for me to take this in.

What is skin hive anyway?
In my own words, skin hive is the red bump (or swollen) appear on your skin. Pretty similar to mosquito bite, but in larger forms. And it is itchy and irritating :(

Just imagine these covering your whole body... Pic source from webmd

I have a fever few days back (since last Wednesday if I can recall), and I was really sick. The doctor gave me antibiotics for a week and like a normal antibiotics routine, you have to complete it. After I consume the capsules after breakfast, nothing really happened. But later that night, I started to scratch my feet until my epidermis turns to red and bleeds a little. It is really painful.

I texted my family and let them know my condition. My brother ask me to completely stop consuming the capsules. Mama got worried because I never had this in my life before. Trust me, I look terrible :(

Unfortunately for me now, I have to be very, very strict on my diet. After few food reaction experiment, it is safe to say, I should be vegetarian. Therefore, I have to change my diet entirely. So here is my lunch today.

Kailan Campur with Egg Tofu

My husband and I went to the pharmacy yesterday and the pharmacist said my hive is considered severe because it has flared up and it looks really bad. She gave me anti-histamine to stop the hives from spreading and asks me to completely stop consuming the antibiotics. I feel extremely helpless when it comes to science and health. Dear God help me...

I know that I'm not the only one who experienced this. I'm gonna keep track my with diet to see if there's any reaction.

Road to HSN2017

Alhamdulillah, another year with TPR. I'm really blessed to be part of this wonderful team.


I'm really proud of myself and to be completely honest, I don't run as much as I did last year. But I have some other achievements as well. Might document here later ;)

I will do my first ever evening HM run this year. I'm EXTREMELY terrified (see, I put my caps onZ) with evening run. Personally I think evening run is kinda exhausting. I did couple of 10km run in the evening, but 21.1km (plus the Bukit Tunku)? Ya Allah, what am I doing?

As I'm writing this, I can feel how difficult this is going to be. But let's be positive and just do it!

I is scared!


Unfortunately, I haven't run with my Nike babes for such a long time. I really missed them. Perhaps I should fly to Sarawak and run there.

Just a quick recap, here's what I've achieved this year:
þ Obstacle Run/Challenge
þ Back to Back Run
þ Successfully pace a runner (Without "tuang")
þ Run without music

There are some other great things and happy moments happened this year and I love every second of it. Perhaps I'll write those at the end of this year.

We're in the month of October now, I can't believe we only have less than 100 days to enter 2018! Let's take a moment to say Alhamdulillah and be grateful that we are still living and breathing to this day. Let me ask you one thing, if you know that you only have another 100 days to live, what would you do? Would you stay at home thinking about your death, or would you live your life to the fullest and give your best till your last breath? The choice is in your hands :)

Let's rock this!

SEA Games Opening Ceremony #kualalumpur2017

After having lunch at Akasia, Kak Yanti, Azie and I have to go back home and get ready for the SEA Games Opening Ceremony. Azie gave me two complimentary tickets few days back and it looks something like this...


The ticket is pretty. I'm keeping this as bookmark :)

Since my husband is busy with his animation training, I have to offer it to someone else who is available on that date. I asked Nana if she is free and she's excited too! We took MRT from TTDI and switch to LRT at Plaza Rakyat, and then straight to Bukit Jalil.

My first MRT experience! 

Hakok's family on their way...

When we arrive at Bukit Jalil, oh my... There are so many human beings here!!! (screams)

Insane right?

Us and Magik! Didn't know that he's a volunteer here :D

It's hot in here! It's not because they look fine... It really is hot...


Nana and I queued at the Entrance B line. The line is insanely long and if you are not comfortable standing, sweating and waiting, please don't come. Hahahahaha! Well, but I'm used to this so I have patience even though I'm a little exhausted after the 15km run earlier today.

Ellysha is going back because of the rain... Buhbye...


Around 630, suddenly it rains! Everyone panicked out and the line is gone. Luckily Nana and I brought our own umbrella and we immediately dashed to the entrance. We finally managed to get in and get a decent seat. Feuh! (Advice: It is ALWAYS a good idea to have a disposable raincoat or an umbrella)

This is the first time ever I enter the Bukit Jalil National Stadium. The stage is enormous (if you notice, it was actually the shape of the logo) and everything is white. I assume there will be a splendid light works projection on the white surface. This reminds me of Jennifer Lopez Feel the Light performance on American Idol.

 I feel so tiny here!

Lemme tell you something here... In the sea of human beings in the stadium, and you bumped into a familiar friend... This is what we call "jodoh" or you may call it miracle

Before the ceremony start, there are few hidden performances by the National Army and few Malaysian celebrities. Pak Nil is here to sing the happy Hoore Hoore song. The performance is fun, but it will be a lot better if the lyric is projected on screen. I think everyone is excited and wants to sing along too.

Just right after Maghrib, there is a light check and here comes the countdown for the ceremony. Woohoo!

Never have I ever felt so proud singing Negaraku in my life. The most symbolic Negaraku moment in my life is during convocation. But nothing can ever compare to this atmosphere. Probably because of the stadium, probably because of the crowd, maybe it's because of the lights, but overall, it's just amazing. Kudos to the National Army Brass Band team for such wonderful music.

One of the most anticipated performance, I think everyone wants to to see Dayang Nurfaizah on stage. Personally I think the music arrangement for Bangkit Bersama tonight sounds so much better than what I hear in Youtube. Love her voice, her outfit, and the headgear is EVERYTHING! Did anyone realize that the word "Bangkit" is the it word this millennia?

Then, here comes the dance with the cultural background, the colours and again, the lights are amazing. I live for this moment! Hmm what else I love about this... Oh, I'm super impressed with the torch passing ceremony, I did not expect that it would be that awesome! I almost cried (again) when they played the montage and the appearance of the legendary athletes.

For those who have missed the opening ceremony, you may watch in on Youtube. But it was not as great as the real event itself.

Wiwiwiwi!

I have a confession to make... The coolest thing I ever witnessed in my life so far is the World of Colours in Disney California Adventure Park. But tonight, I dare to say that Kuala Lumpur 2017 SEA Games has topped that off. If you want to know the man behind this whole historic event, you may click here.

To be perfectly honest, all in all, I'm blown away with everything. I'm very blessed to have the opportunity to experience this. Much thanks for the complementary tickets Azie. I'm in for the closing ceremony :)

Kuala Lumpur 2017 Sea Games: Marathon :)

I've been to concert, gigs, poetry reading, convocation, orchestra, etc. But sadly I never had a chance to attend any sports events. I couldn't feel luckier to have the opportunity to witness the Kuala Lumpur SEA Games 2017. Before the 15km flag off, Kak Yanti, Azie and I was so excited to see the marathon runners doing the loop around Putrajaya. Trust me, we almost decided not to run because we want to cheer for Malaysia so badly!


Thanks for sharing this moment with me Kak Yanti! Love you very strong mak! Hahahaha ;)

Let's just skip the details about the 15km run and focus on the SEA Games. Kak Yanti is A LOT faster than me, she waited at the finishing line, right in front of the stage. FYI, Kak Yanti is an athlete in school (and still is to this day). Sports is definitely one of her passion and she knows everything about current issues in Malaysian sports, specifically on running.

While waiting, there's a female marathoner walking towards the finishing line. Everyone cheered for her and as she's getting closer, she cried. I kid you not, I cried too when I saw her wiping off her tears. It's a mixed feelings. I have a huge feeling that she might be injured or something. Logically, NO ONE had an opportunity like this will ever let their country down for no reason.

Don't feel bad girl, you tried your best and we are proud of you :)

I don't think she reads my blog but I know exactly how it feels. I can imagine how hard she has been practicing, going through strenuous training and preparation to be qualified for SEA Games. Not everyone is going to have a happy ending in sports. But she tried her best and she should be proud of herself. Held your head up high girl and keep on running and improving :)

After the last runner arrived, they began to prepare for the victory ceremony. I love the choices of songs they played during this event. The best crowd ever and  the vibe is surreal. We sing our heart out while waiting for the ceremony to start. For some reason, everyone knows how to sing Roar by Katy Perry, Gemuruh by Faizal Tahir and Standing in the Eyes of The World by Ella. Surprisingly everyone remembers the lyric by heart. I love this moment :)


The Gold medal belongs to Singapore, Silver to Indonesia and Bronze to Malaysia. Woohoo! Congratulations to all!

When they raise the flags and played the Singapore national anthem "Majulah Singapura" and in all of a sudden my feelings go haywire and I cried (again). Sounds stupid, it's not even Malaysia kan? But to me, this is a historic moment. From the bottom of my heart, I'm really proud of them.

Our very own Malaysian runner, Muhaizar happily smiles and waving to his supporters! Wee!

With (some of the) Team Proton Runners! Yeay!

To be perfectly honest, being there and witness it right in front of you eyes is not even close as what you watch on television. Seeing this gives me chill. It makes me proud of being Malaysian. If had a chance (rezeki) to attend some other sporting events, I would definitely love to do this again. #NegarakuMalaysia #MalaysiaBoleh #KL2017 #RisingTogether #BangkitBersama #SEAGames2017 #TPR #TeamPROTONRunners #Proton #itsinthedrive

July Runners Birthday Illustration :)

Mr. Azlan personally called and invited me to come over to his house (again) before Syawal ends. It's going to be a small but special group of makan-makan gathering. We don't do pot luck this time, and no more special Sarawak cuisine, huhuhu...

But as always, the TPR Drama Queens planning to do a July birthday celebration. FYI, I'm very aware that none of the TPR is actually reading my blog, so I have the guts to spoil the birthday celebration here. Wiwiwiwi...

After inking... I love how Hanna turn out! And I love the meow (^__^)

Nett texted me and asked me to prepare the caricature of the July runners. They are Dayah, Zamir and Kak Yanti. I was thinking to draw Dayah with her daughter Ellysha, Kak Yanti with Hanna and Zamir with a cat. Meow :3

After marker. I love the colour! 

So here is the final illustration and I didn't really expect that it would look this cute. Hahahaha, sorry terpuji diri sendiri plak :p

I have to go to bed now, it's getting late. I hope they gonna love this. Goodnight everyone :)

Ramadhan is Coming & I Miss China So Bad!

Assalamualaikum and hello again guys, Terawih starts tonight and I always get an epiphany when Ramadhan is coming. It's 30th Syaaba...
