MyCSR!個人CSRが やった!

Although I enjoy my weekend routine evening walk, the garbage along the roadside is really sore to the eyes! So disappointed with Batu Gajah folks. Used face mask, water bottle, cigarette butt, just to name a few…😩A blogger friend of mine currently living in Kagawa posted about his rubbish collecting activity along the beach every week and it inspired me so much. So finally it’s ‘D-DAY!! 😁 I did it!! It’s not easy doing it alone I tell ya. Should have brought a bigger plastic bag though, but there’s always next time.

Brilliant! I'm currently obsessed with this cover by a Korean-German dude. On repeat while I'm working my butt off my MBA assignments.

This too, shall pass..

I came back to this sanctuary of mine with mixed feelings. I've always wanted this blog to be a cheerful & silly space, a bed of roses, a breath of fresh air, a medium of escapism, a place where anyone (or myself at least) to drop by when the days are bad. I've tried so hard to arrange my words over and over in advance, way in advance it took me weeks, months, and almost a year, yet I can't seem to narrate even a simple beautiful sentence, when my heart is so much in aching, hurting, and I'm still on a long journey to heal. But how do you really move on from a betrayal of a friend? To be Sabr (patience) and Redha (to accept whole-heartedly) is still a struggle for me. But life experiences, bad things happen, Don’t Let It Stop You From Living! I am far too precious & important for this world. And there are lots of people who needs me and values me, be it a stranger just passing by. Allah has a BIG BIG plan for me. Still a long way to go, but I'm heading there, to a peaceful and contented state of mind. I'm on my way. May Allah Ease.

Japan Life : Sending Food to Japan by post

Hello, I'm back! Just a quick post. My colleagues are moving to Japan soon, so I've prepared this simple list for them and I'm sharing it here too. I know it's not the most comprehensive or perfect list, but I hope it can benefit any one of you who stumble of this blog as well :)
Sending Food to Japan by post?
When it comes to sending food items abroad via courier, the rules are relatively simple: You cannot send any food items that are classed as perishables (things that can go off or that can spoil during transit). This is the most important rule of all, and as long as you stick to this rule, you will be just fine.

 What Store Bought Food Can be shipped?
 1. Foods must be in the original manufacturers packaging.
 2. Food packaging must be sealed and not tampered with in any way.
 3. Food label must list all ingredients.
 4. Foods must have a shelf life of longer than 6 months from the date of shipping.
 5. All foods that have a shelf life of less than 6 months will be classed as perishables, and cannot be sent via courier, even if store bought.

 How to Ship Food Items
 1. Don’t send food items that must be kept in a temperature controlled environment in transit (refrigerated, frozen or chilled) as they will spoil by the time they reach their destination.
2. Don’t expect your food parcel to be kept ‘this way up’ during transit.
3. Don’t send foods that are restricted for import into the destination country.
4. Always ensure your food items have a label clearly displaying all the ingredients and the ‘use by date’ because customs authorities may check these upon import.
5. Always package your food items so that they can withstand the parcel being placed upside down during transit, and always wrap individual items separately inside your parcel for optimum protection.
6. Always check the import restrictions in the country you are shipping to, to avoid sending foods that are prohibited at the destination.

My notes (based on my past experiences)

1. Basically, ALL TYPE OF DRY food is OK to post @ courier to Japan.
2. Kicap/Sos/Jem : better choose the plastic bottle type. It’s quite risky to post those is glass bottle but if you wrap them properly with bubble sheet it should be OK.
3. Hazardous item, flammable – NOT OK
4. Some cases of posting MILO drink is NOT OK. Confiscated by Custom Japan, I'm not sure why.
5. Medicine from Malaysia – Panadol, balm, cough syrup, etc is OK for personal use. (From my personal experience, please bring some with you because Japan Hospital medicine is generally mild compared to Malaysia dosage)
6. Homemade biscuits, cakes, kerepek, etc – Pack them properly in container & seal them. If you put label it will be better too.
7. List out clearly what you put inside each boxes in the post office declaration form.
8. Different country, different rules. Check with your local post office too.
9. More useful forum website:

To my beautiful stranger

So it's that phase again,
Where nights feels too short,
And days seems too long.

But this time it feels different,

This time is an exception,
For you are too precious,
Peculiar and bodacious.

Thank you for choosing to stick around,
Though you couldn't promise for how long,

So when it's time for our goodbye,
Let there be no regret, but only smile.
To my beautiful stranger;

That awakens my shielded emotion,
That captures my wounded heart,

Lets celebrate this union.
Lets celebrate us,

Before we return back this borrowed moments.

(27/03/18 - from FS to FK)            

...and before I knew it, it ended..THE END.
