Studies: What Happened and What's Next?

Hi, everyone! Can't believe we're talking about studies today. I've left my school for more than half a year now. Have to be honest, I miss my school so much! Especially my best friends. High school life is the best and I will never forget about it. What an amazing 5 years.

So, what happened? After the whole year of 2017 full of stress and struggles, and almost 4 months of waiting, the results day finally came. I can't even lie, it was the most thrilling moment in my freaking life. My heart was beating faster than ever. I've never been that nervous before. I was wishing it could just end faster but at the same time, I was really scared to know my SPM results, of course.

Whatever it is, kena hadap jugak kan. The moment came. Some of my friends have been called up the stage. DAMN GUYS, I couldn't even describe the feelings. I was literally dying, lol. After a long wait, my name was called and I went up. Ya Allah. I went down the stage looking for my dad, hugged him and cried so hard. My mum wasn't there because she was working outstation that time.

Couldn't even bear to show my whole face, it was freaking red. You can see how swollen my eyes were there. Sorry 😂

Alhamdulillah for everything. I couldn't ask for more. Couldn't believe that did it. I achieved my target. All those hard work and sacrifice were paid off. What I was looking forward too even more were my parents. Especially my mum. She had a really high hope for me, she believed in me too much that I was so scared of what will happen if I did not make it. Disappointing her was my biggest fear at that moment. But, I believe that all her hopes turned to doa. Doa seorang ibu, right?

I was quite sad that she wasn't there on the results day. Whatever it is, I'm still happy that I made her cried tears of joy! Hahahah. Also my dad, he didn't cry but his eyes were watering, and it was my first time ever seeing that. I've never seen my dad like that before. That feeling when you see how proud your parents were for you, I couldn't even describe it.


Hari Anugerah Cemerlang. This time my mum came! Hehe. But my dad didn't, he was on call.

I'm sure it's not too late yet, so congratulations to all my '00 batchmates! We all did it! No matter what your results were, it's not the end. We have a loooooong way to go, guys. Even for myself and other candidates out there who also got straight A's, it surely doesn't guarantee 100% of a bright future. There's a harder stage we're going to go through after this, which is the university life. To some of you guys who have started any pre-university programmes, I wish you a very good luck! I'm kind of excited but also not ready to start mine.

So, what's next? Well, I think I've talked about this before, how I don't have any specific ambitions yet. It's still confusing, but I'm slowly seeing the answer. I applied for scholarships, and I only got into one. It's under MARA. But the course that I got wasn't the ones I applied for. I got into an engineering course. After so long thinking about it and doing some researches about the course, I decided to reject the offer. I know, what a waste, Yana! Ugh, I don't know guys. I just feel like it's not my thing. After watching lots of videos and reading blogs about engineering, I don't think it's the right path for me. Wallahua'lam, only He knows.

I also got the matriculation programme but I decided to wait for UPU results which came out almost a month after matriculation results. I applied for a few foundation programmes and alhamdulillah I got into one. It's the one that I wanted the most. So, I decided to go for foundation instead of matriculation, and it will start soon after Raya. What course and where? I'll tell you later! Maybe after a week of orientation there, I'll update you guys on it! Stay tuned hehe.


Here's a little throwback. Graduation Day with all my awesome classmates, 5 Al Biruni 💓

Overall, I couldn't be more grateful for what I accomplished. I'm so going to miss my school life, and I'm very excited + afraid to go to the next stage of my life as a student. I read blog posts about foundation life and it sounds damn scary! Definitely, need to prepare myself mentally and physically for it.

I wish all of my '00 batchmates best of luck in the future! Whatever you're taking and wherever you are, please remember to study smart and not study hard, okay? Honestly, one of the best tips I can give to you is you need to set your nawaitu carefully. If you have the most sincere and proper niat from the beginning, insya'Allah everything will go well just as you want it to be. And of course, with Allah's will.

Till then, see you guys later!

Salam Ramadan, Everyone!


It has been a long time, right? Hello there! Damn, this is awkward. I haven't updated since forever. Lol. Well, all I can say is that I was super damn busy with work. Yes, I did get a part-time job, guys! Just as I planned in my previous post. I won't share too many details about it yet, I'll be making a separate post about my first every job experience. Hehe.

After a few months of getting paid, I finally spent some of my money for this blog! I've been waiting to do this for soooooooo long. Now, I finally got my own domain, www.liyanajasmi.com and also a Blogger template I've always wanted. I'm using a template by UnderlineDesigns. They sell beautiful templates at affordable prices. The domain service I'm using is by NetKL, which costs RM45 per year. Yay, my dreams came true!

Overall, I'm really happy with my blog now. After a few days of editing, I would say I'm 99% satisfied with how it looks. Alhamdulillah, rezeki bulan Ramadan gitu. Speaking of that, happy fasting to all Muslims! It's almost middle of Ramadan now. How time flies, right? May this honourable month full of blessings and forgiveness for everyone. I wish you guys a delightful Ramadan ahead!

Since my blog looks pretty fresh and new now, I feel very excited to continue updating! Lol, I know I always say this but this time, I will try to keep this blog updated since I have about 1 month left before continuing my studies. Cause I will be definitely even busier after that. I really miss this keyboard, ugh!

Please stay tuned! Salam Ramadan, peeps 💕

P.s; Really can't wait for Raya. I've been making kuih raya since before Ramadan! CORNFLAKES MADU IS LIFE. Fight me.

My Ultimate After-SPM Plans

It's been a week since SPM is over. Damn, that's fast. Anyways, hey there! Weeeee, I'm so excited to write this post! I don't even know why tho. I've been planning these things ever since SPM haven't even begin. Honestly, I can't wait for SPM to be done but I'm sad to leave school. My high school years are the best and I going to miss it.

I'm sorry for not updating as soon as possible. I'm quite sick lately, and I've been sneezing ALL day long, and it hurts. No worries, I'll try my best to write an excellent post.


Whoops, let's get back to the main topic. So here are my after-school plans that I'm pretty excited to share with you guys! (Sorry if I sound annoying)

Getting a driving license
I've always wanted to drive. I've been dreaming of driving since like, last year (lol that's early). This is the first main thing I want to do after school. I've already contacted a teacher from IMKEDA and will be having the first class (which is the talk) in 2 weeks. My parents are excited too. They want me to drive so that I can send my little brothers to school instead of them (seriously). Hihi. I really want to start as soon as possible, but I'm going with one of my friends but she's currently in her hometown, so I need to wait until she gets back. Yall, I'm still pretty excited!

Getting a job
I want to gain my own money, and of course, new experiences! I was a bit late. I went job-hunting with my friend last Friday and yesterday. We went to like 5 nearby malls, and most of the shops are already full! As in, there are already way too many SPM leavers applied for jobs there. We were quite disappointed and regretted not going earlier. Last Friday, I only got to ask for 3 jobs and still haven't received any calls from them.

So, I went job-hunting again yesterday on Tuesday, and I got to apply another 8 jobs (seriously). Overall, I applied at 2 TGV Cinemas outlets, 2 Baskin Robbins outlets, 2 Boost Juice Bars outlets, 1 Tealive outlet, 2 cafes, and 2 boutiques. Banyak kan?! I know. Just in case tho. Y'all see how bad I need money? Why? Read the next one! Please pray for me, guys.

Upgrade my blog to the next level
Hell yeah! I've been planning this since months ago. I feel like I've already talked about his way too much, but here it goes again. First, I will get a domain. Then, I'll change my template! I've been aiming for a few templates on Etsy and can't wait to buy one! I love going to the website and search for beautiful templates. Sadly, I still haven't found one that perfectly suite my taste yet, and I might need to buy a customisation package too. It's a package where the owner of the shop will edit and customise the template according to my taste! It's something like that la. Hehe.

Click here; it's a list of the templates I love and recommend if you guys want to buy any! You can also browse through Pipdig, which also sells fantastic templates but they're quite pricey. Anyway, I've also created a proper blog schedule and will be applying it right after the first two things are done. Yayyy, can't wait to make all of these happen!

Starting an online business
I actually already have one, guys. I've registered to be a topup agent months ago. I'm not sure if you guys know about this, but it's pretty famous too. Basically, people can buy this thing we call 'topup' directly from me, and I'll transfer it to you in just a few seconds! No need to walk or drive, waste your time and petrol to go to a physical store to buy one. Of course, you still have to pay me. And by the way, here is my online shop on Instagram! It is not active yet, I'm sorry. Please wait, I'll launch it very soon!

I can also register new agents under my name, and of course, there are some benefits for me. For example, I will even get some profits from the sales of the agents under me! Although the income is not that much, it's an easy and straightforward way to start. I'm also planning to do some dropships to generate more revenue! But I'm still not sure about that yet. I will also do this thing where we call, if I'm not mistaken, online surveys. It is when we do some simple reviews online, and we will be paid for it! Weehoo!

Cook and bake more
I've made a promise to my mom that I will learn how to cook and bake more after SPM. I love baking, and I've done it so many times already, but I rarely prepare dishes. I did, just a few times tho, cooking simple meals like nasi goreng. The best meal I've ever cooked was Butter Milk Chicken, and I've only done it like twice. So, I want to learn more. My mom can cook a thousand dishes, her cooking is amazingly delicious. I mean, who doesn't like mom's cook right? I really want to learn more from her.

I also want to bake more, especially French Macaroons. Only God knows how much I hate baking them because I've failed so many times before. I've tried baking these beautiful cookies more than just a few times before, and I failed each time. Bakers would know how hard it is to make them, you have to follow every single step correctly. One mistake? Everything's ruined. Although I hate making them, I've never given up. I will keep on trying to bake these French Macaroons until I succeed! Hihi. Plus, shout out to @nanajerkk on Twitter, who share lots of great recipes for baking! Follow the thread now!


A vacation with my cliques
Yayyy! If you guys have ever been on my Instagram page, you might know who are my cliques. I posted lots of pictures of them. Their faces are all over my page. Muka sama je semua. We are a total of 7 girls including me. We've been planning a trip to Langkawi next year, before the SPM Results day. Buy why next year? Because we don't have money. HAHAHA, seriously. This is one of the reasons why I'm searching for a part-time job. We need to work for a month or two for the trip! I'm seriously excited! In 2015, after we had our PT3 exam, we went to Port Dickson. Last year, we went to Sunway Lagoon. And this year, Langkawi here we go! Insya'Allah, hehe.



I feel like I have many other plans, but these are the main ones for know. I'm currently waiting for a call from any of the jobs that I've applied. I'm scared that I won't get any, haih. Please pray for me. I will also start my driving class soon, I hope that I'll pass with flying colours! Hehe.

During these free weeks, I've been on my bed all day. I watched many movies! I wanted to start watching Korean dramas again, but I have a list of movies I want to watch. I do have a K-dramas-to-watch list, but I'm trying to finish my movies list first! Hehe. If you guys have any good movies and dramas for suggestions, please comment down below!

I really hope I didn't sound annoying or something in this post. I'm just overexcited, I guess. Thank you so much for reading, and I hope you enjoy it! Will update more soon, stay tuned lovelies!

I'm Back! SPM is Over!

Hello everyone! Bet y'all don't remember me anymore.
Just kidding guys. It's me, Liyana. And I'm finally back! Weeehooooooo!

I can't believe my days of suffering is finally over. SPM has ended. Actually, it felt quite fast, I feel like the first day of the big exam was just yesterday tho. But seriously, time flies so quickly. I know I've said that too much, but I'm not kidding. I started the exam on Monday, 6th November 2017 and ended it on last Monday, 27th November 2017. Our first paper was Bahasa Melayu (obviously), and the last one was Chemistry.

Well, about the exam, overall I think it was okay. I'm happy with what I've done as I did my very best, but I'm quite worried about these two papers; English Paper 1 and Biology Paper 2.

English Paper 1; it's that paper where we have to write 2 essays. Have you guys ever had those days when you were so blurring? You feel like your brain was so slow? Basically, your mind was just, blank. Yeap and that hit me during that time when I was sitting for this paper. I hated myself so much. I couldn't think of any good ideas for my essays, my vocabulary skills were lacking that time. I was like "macam mana nak eja perkataan ni?" and like "apa perkataan ni in English doh?" for a few times. No, I'm not asking other candidates, I was asking myself.

This is also known as Writer's Block, and I had this during my English Paper 1. Overall, I'm not satisfied with what I've written. I feel like I've done way more better essays before, and this one wasn't the best that I've ever written. Ahhhh, I'm so sad. But for English Paper 2, where they test your grammar, comprehension, summary, novels, and others; alhamdulillah it was just fine. I hope that my answers for that paper could cover up the marks that I lost from the first paper. Lol. Aamiin, insya'Allah.

Biology Paper 2; this one, I can answer the questions, alhamdulillah. What I'm worried about is the way I've responded to them. We have section B, which are the essay questions. For these Science subjects, we can answer the essay questions in point form. My teachers always remind us, "mudahkanlah kerja pemeriksa tu, nanti korang pun mudah dapat markah". And by writing in point form, we are making the pemeriksa's work easier, by not having to read long-ass essays. I mean, it's not a language paper pun kan?

But for me, I rarely answer those essay questions in point form. For the previous exams, I've been answering those questions in the way of an essay, especially Biology. It's because this is a factual subject. For Chemistry and Physics, I've answered in point form once before, so it wasn't a new thing for me during SPM. But for Biology, my first time writing in point form / table form for the essay questions was during SPM. And that is why I'm worried. I'm afraid that I didn't write enough facts for certain questions. Whatever it was, I'm so scared because it was my first time answering Biology essay questions in point form. So yeah, I'm just praying for the best. 

For other subjects and papers, alhamdulillah everything went well, and I'm satisfied. I did my best. Now, it's time to just tawakkal. I'm hoping for the best, aamiin insya'Allah.

So, those are my rant about SPM, I guess? No worries, I've moved on. Dah tawakkal and reda. For all SPM 2017 leavers out there, don't ever stop praying although y'all have tawakkal. Pray for the pemeriksa, pray for their excellent health. Pray so that they mark our papers in peace, without any mistakes. Pray so that they would give us good marks. Just, don't ever stop praying for the best although the exam is already over, okay?

Congrats to all my batchmates out there who have successfully finished their SPM. We survived guys! Yay! FREEDOM! I've never been this happy, seriously. I have a list of things to do after SPM, and I will share them with you guys in my next post. So, stay tuned!

And of course, I'm so happy to be back here on the blog. I really, really miss my blog so much, and I can't wait to upgrade it to the next level. I've mentioned about this before too, right? So yeah, stay tuned for more updates and upgrades from me and my blog! Yay!

Ahh, it feels so good to be back. Actually, I finished my exams last Monday. But I only write a post now because I've been sleeping all day as I didn't get enough sleep at all during my suffering days. Just, trying to get rid of my eyebags, you know.

I will write more! In my next post, I'll talk about what I'm planning to do now since my high school life is over. I'm super-duper excited! Hehe. Till then, stay tuned!

Hiatus - Road to SPM!

Hey, long time no see?! Yes, it's me, Liyana. Finally, an update from me. I'm writing again, maybe for the last time in a few months. Anyone misses me? Bet no one did. Hehe. I miss blogging so much! Anyways, I'm really sorry for those who have been waiting for an update from me, well here's a post for all of you. I feel sorry for leaving without any words. So I decided to write this.


Before I start, let's talk about this beautiful month we called Ramadhan. Time flies very fast, it's already been two weeks of fasting, right? I just want to wish happy fasting for all Muslims out there. May we get to use all the incredible opportunities Allah SWT give to us in this month full of blessings. Let's gain more good deeds! Appreciate this Ramadhan as if it is the last Ramadhan for us. Salam Ramadhan! ✨

Alright so,
I know I've been gone again. Of course, I will state the same god damn reason, which is SPM. This is my busiest year ever yet. It's currently school holiday for 2 weeks, but trust me, these weeks doesn't even feel like school holiday. I have classes every single weekday. All my teachers and tutors held extra classes to finish the syllabus as SPM Trial is just around the corner. Even it is currently school holiday, I'm still super busy. Not mentioning all my homework that I'm still trying to finish. We even have an assignment for Additional Mathematics, which is crazy.

And obviously, I miss blogging. Not only blogging, I just miss my computer badly. Blogging, watching Korean Dramas, playing The Sims, and others. I rarely touch my computer now. Ahhh, even when I'm writing this post, I could feel my love for blogging and how I really miss it. One of my dreams is to be a successful blogger, I want to pour out my heart and soul for this blog. Oh, how I wish I have enough time for all or those. And of course, I miss reading you guys' blogs so much!

Let's get straight to the point. I'm here to officially announce that I will be on hiatus for a few months. As I said, I feel bad for leaving my blog just like that. So here it is, a goodbye post. Nah, just kidding. No worries everyone, I'm not leaving forever! I really love this blog. Blogging is a big part of my life. But for now, I feel like focusing on my studies first.

I will be gone for awhile. SPM is getting closer and closer, and I'm starting to feel more and more scared. I feel like crying every single time I think about this matter. So, I've created many schedules to prepare myself for the exam. And by that, I decided to be on hiatus for a few months until SPM is over. I have a dream, a big target for this exam. My parents and family members are hoping for me to pass with flying colours. And me, myself, want to score in this exam.

I will be back, guys. I promise, insya'Allah. For my stream, we will be starting on November 6th until November 27th, which is almost one month. So, I will be back around this December, okay? I have many plans to do after SPM is over, including renewing my blog. Insya'Allah, I will come back with my own domain, a new template, a new style of posting/writing, and others. Ahhhh, can't wait for that! Hehe.

Overall, that's that. To all my readers and other bloggers out there, who will be taking any kind of exams, I wish you all the best! Break a leg, okay? And guys, pray for me. Wish me best of luck for this upcoming SPM. May Nur Liyana binti Jasmi score straight, 9As in SPM 2017! Insya'Allah, aamin. Hehe, I'm trying my very best. May Allah ease everything.

Thank you for reading and supporting me and my blog. I hope everyone understands, and please wait for me guys! I will be back, okay? Insya'Allah 😊

Till then, see you guys in 6 months! 💓

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!
