Farewell Ami Schaheera

Assalamualaikum and good day.

Dear families and friends.

The past twelve days have been the toughest time in my life.

Ami fell ill and was admitted to Hospital Ampang for five days with breathing difficulties.
On the fifth day, with her white blood cell count spiking up and her lungs slowly failing due to an infection, she laid a little uneasy in her bed,  surrounded by close family members.
On Wednesday, 24 Jamadil Awwal in the 1435th year of the Hijrah,   March 26th, 2014 at 01:30 in the morning, she was pronounced dead. She was 29 years old.

Her cause of death was Relapsed Acute Myeloid Leukemia.

Beloved Families, Friends, Boys and Girls.

For those who prayed and cared for her,
those who showed love and kindness,
those who called and came to visit,
those who supported and donated money,

I appreciate your sympathy, concern, wishes and prayers.
I can't thank you all enough. May God bless you and your families.
Let us pray for her and expect the best from God…

From the (earth) did We create you, and into it shall We return you, and from it shall We bring you out once again.
(Al-Quran 20:55)

The Prophet Muhammad  taught that three things continue to benefit a [believing] person even after death -
charity which he/she had given (which continues to benefit others),
beneficial knowledge which he/she had left behind (authored or taught),
and supplication on his/her behalf by a righteous child.
(Sahih Muslim)

May her soul rest in peace, and she find love in the arms of God.

Best Regards,

REVIEW: ADANIA, Be Glamorously Natural!

Last weekend I was fortunate enough to be part of Amaryllis Spa & Wellness launch of their brand new all natural products range named ADANIA. As you might know, anything all natural or organic holds a soft spot in my heart as I believe that our body's wellness does not only depends on the purity of the food we eat but also extends to the beauty products that we use on our skin every single day. 

What toxic chemicals is your body absorbing? We absorb up to 60% of what we put on our skin. Children’s bodies absorb 40% - 50% more than adults. They are at higher risks for diseases later in life when exposed to toxins. 

Although I have still not fully change to all natural products but I am trying slowly - reading ingredients is sometimes my favorite thing to do when I'm doing grocery shopping and if there's too much of the stuffs that you don't understand - that probably only means there's too much chemical. Be aware of the toxins listed above. Download SKIN DEEP app on your smartphone to check for beauty products toxicity, most major brands are listed in there.

As for Malaysia, I personally feel regretful and sorry that our country does not require for manufacturers to fully list every single items in their ingredients on products. To make things worse, the supply for all natural and organic products in our shore is rather scarce and most imported brands are sold at such high price that isn't really accessible for average and low income individuals. 

I am so happy to learn that ADANIA is a local brand that is totally dedicated to launching a full range of beauty products that contains no toxin and completely all natural. When they say ALL NATURAL, they mean ALL NATURAL:

I have personally chatted with the founder of ADANIA and I'm so glad that we share the same sentiment towards a healthier lifestyle, not only through foods and exercise but also through they way we think and treat our body. ADANIA products are researched in Australia and are hand-packed locally by disabled people. ADANIA not only has started a good thing with this brand but they are also giving back by creating a sustainable opportunities for the disabled people to earn a source of income. Such a wholesome brand ♥
