Selamat Hari Raya Maaf Zahir dan Batin. A blessed Eid Mubarak to all and may you have a blessed Eid.
As much as I am sad that Ramadhan has gone. And praying that I we will see next Ramadhan InsyAllah, ameen ameen Ya Rabb. This year Eid Mubarak I have had the chance to see, experience and feel the different aura and environment of how Eid (Hari Raya as we like to call it here in Brunei) is celebrated outside of Brunei. This year we managed to visit Kota Kinabalu. My husband’s relative is located in Papar and we had the chance to visit the neighbouring country. We witness on how Hari Raya was celebrated there. Despite the different culture and traditions, you can still sense the Hari Raya spirit in the air. With music of hari raya songs blazing in the shopping complexs, hari raya songs of new and old playing back to back on the Radio stations. And meeting old faces of long distance relative makes the heart warm. The food is oh so my…a mixture of sweet, spicy and tangy of different varities of home-cooked meals. What touched me the most the scene of when we returned from KK to return to my husband’s aunt place (as we were staying there overnight). Its was past 12am ish and the streets were dark (literally dark as there is no street lamps) and the brightest house on the very end welcomed us of cheer, children playing fireworks, bright & colorfull festive lights and relatives from each corner of the village welcomed us with such hospitality and kindness. The warmth of the moment melted my heart away as it had brought me to a flashback moment of my childhood in the 90s and how we celebrated Hari Raya.
Back in the 90s
When I was growing up, the joy and cheer of Hari Raya can be felt as the environment was filled with young children visited every home on the street and was invited in for a glass of cold beverages, cookies of all kinds and of course, green packs for each child. The cheer of lighting fireworks during the night, the spirit of spring-cleaning the homes and re-arranging the living rooms for family and friends to get comfortable during their visits. Sights if the males going to mosques to perform their prayers and giving Zakat.
Now in the 21st Century
Now inourEra, many things have changed. There are less visits by the children, as there are all grown-up now. And more into virtual games then fireworks. Huhu. And the tradition of what used to be our joy of walking to visit our neighbours have now slowly faded. But on the other hand the Traditional Family portraits are now made of selfies and wefies, which is hip and kinda fun. Capturing moments that you can store at the palm of your hand and you can see them whenever you like.
Traditional family portraits are now called Selfies or Wefies.
As the ages come and gone. There are much differance of Hari Raya then and now . Apart from aging each year, I feel that some traditions are slowly fading. Hoping that youth will still carry on the true meaning of Eid Mubarak (Hari Raya). That is asking for forgiveness, being thankful that we are still well and alive and not forgetting to give to those who have less.
Here The Deens would like to wish everyone a blessed Eid Mubarak.
Hey folks! Only 2 (two) more days left till we say goodbye to Ramadhan. Ramadhan this year has been so quick. And in 2 (two) more days we will be celebrating Hari Raya (Eid Mubarak). As we all know, when it comes to Hari Raya, the shops are crowded with people to shop till their drop for the latest fashion clothing, shoes and other accessories. Cars are shiny and new, tyres are fixed, fuel tank is filled full, shoes are shined, Baju Cara Melayu is freshly pressed. The environment at the shops are filled with festive cheer as the Hari Raya songs are blazing. The streets are jammed pack with cars (not to mention the amount of time we have to tawwaf (circle) just to find parking. And how many of us purchase the things that we need for our health. Wait what? Why do we need to get medicine when we are already healthy, you may ask.
Here, I will share with you a little bit of history of the ‘Female’ problem that I encountered. It started in 2013, when I started to notice that my bleeding was getting less and less by the month. My normal flow would usually take 10 to 12 days (yes, it because the dirty blood at the end would take longer than the normal bleeding). Then over the years, my flow would reduce month by month. And now my period flow would only last 4 to 5 days and maximum 6 to 7 days. Few months back when I had gone for my blood test and PAP Smear test, doctors reveal that there is nothing wrong with my PAP Smear Test and all tests came back as clear and normal. However I had high levels of uric acid was contributed as to my Gout. Doctors advise me to lose 5kg to 6kg before my next appointment. Back then I was 68kg to 69kg and now was able to reduce to 62.7kg. Here is a picture below as my very own testimonial:-
This is my testimonial of losing some weight after consuming Min Kaffe and Garlic Tablets. And at the same time-consuming Shaklee Lecithin, Alfalfa, OmegaGuard and DTX Complex.
Anyhoots, that one is another story to tell (but I did share my journey in the previous post on how I dropped down to 62.75kg). Back to the scene, I informed the doctor that I was concern that I might have early symptoms of PCOS. Coz my period flow is getting less and less and the am only getting my menstrual period only every 3 months. Till recently it increased from 3 months to 4 months and worse was when I was late for almost 6 months time. After acknowledging the differance of Bio Seleza Pantyliners with other panty liners that are found in the market. I switched to Bio Seleza Pantyliners and after using about 6 packets (180 pieces) of Bio Seleza Panty Liners. I had my period that started out as light spotting in early July this year (estimated on the 3rd July 2015) I had light spotting. Here’s is the break down for your easy reference:-
*By Mid March or Early April: First Trial using Bio Seleza. Feedback: Less vaginal discharge and feeling much drier unlike other panty liners that is available on the market,
*By Mid May till June: Using Bio Seleza Consistent. Feedback: Increased amount of energy even through out Ramadhan.
*First Week of July 2015: Noticed light spotting on and off that happens for several days. Feedback: Menstural Cycle began with dark brown discharge with light abdominal cramps. Usually would have experience severe menstrual cramps that includes back-pains and stomach pains.
* Second Week of July 2015: Spotting continues with mixture of dark brown and black coloured blood-flow. Blood flow discharge is more frequent and slightly heavy flow than before. Feedback: Light abdominal cramps, the cramps are the same feeling as the first day of your period, but much lighter than at times you don’t notice it. More energy levels during the days, but easily fatigue by the evening.
* Third Week of July 2015: Much heavy flow with more dark texture and blood flow discharge is more frequent. Estimated have to change panty liners 3 to 5 times a day. still encounter light abdominal cramps now and then, but the cramps usually accompany with fresh blood that is either dark red, dark brown or black in color.
To prove this statement is true to the best of my knowledge, here is the real-life testimonial picture (however users are to be advised that the image may be scary and gruesome):-
I know that this looks scary even I was shocked when I noticed the amount of dirty blood. However, upon using Bio-Seleza Panty Liner, the pads kills 99.9% of bacteria, and during those days when I am busy and unable to go to the loo, the panty liners prove to have no odor (even when you are sitting or standing from 8am to 5pm). And as I am blogging now, I had to change to a new liner and saw fresh dark red blood. An indication that the dirty blood has been removed from within. Imagine the amount of dirty blood that has been accumulated within for almost months or even years ever since I encountered irregular menstrual cycle.
THE STORY BEFORE THE LINERS:-
Before this, I was concern if I had PCOS. Doctors gave me these medications for my body to bleed, however this process is not natural as the prescribed medication forces the body to bleed. And I don’t want to be depended on the medication to bleed every month. And have tried other alternatives such consuming:-
1. Shaklee GLA
2. Bio Seleza Panty Liners
3. Alfalfa Concentrate
Before consuming the above, I consumed the medications that is prescribed by the doctors for a week and I had my mensural cycle but it went to back to square one, I did not get my period after that for another 5 months. Now alhamdulilah, after using Bio Seleza Panty Liners, now I have my menstrual cycle but at the same time, cleanzing and detox of the Miss V.
Through the hecticness of getting to tick all your items on your check-list. Ensure you put in health items such as Bio Seleza Pantyliners& Bio Seleze Day Safe Pads for those Oopsie moments. Pluuusss, don’t forget to get that natural glow with BB Plus Collagen, Detox with Alfalfa Concentreate and spice up your make-up with the best of nature with Cozuma CC Cream, Cozuma Lipsticks. Feel free to visit the other posts on our blog for more information. Hoping this post will help women and ladies on the importance of sanitary pads. The huge differance between safe and non-safe pads. Hoping to share more information in the near future. Will keep you posted lovelies.

Its been almost a week since I took up the free blogging course by The Blogging University : The Daily Post. For today’s post is to create a personalize blog by creating a fun, wicked header image.
If you have read through my blog, you will notice that only recently I took blogging serious. Previously I was blogging to share on my experience, self-experiments and sharing on products that I loved and enjoyed consuming on a daily basis. That is food & health supplements. This year I took the iniative to step-up the blogging game by focusing more in-depth on what I hope and wish for my blog to acheive by the end of this year. And one of the ways is by joining this free online course that is conducted by The Daily Post : Blogging University.
Now we at day 7. What I wanna share is how I created my Header Picture. Back in 2012, I named my blog ‘TwentyFirst Century Momma’ because my focus back then was to sell breastfeeding accessories and share motherhood journey and experiences. Only recently this year, I decided to purchase the Domain dot.com (.com) and changed my blog domain from wordpress.com to 21stcenturysarah.com. The roots and foundation of why I created this blog will still remained rooted which is Motherhood, Breastfeedings, being a Bookworm, Beauty, Energy, Health and Wellness will always stay close to my heart. By investing my time into how my blog layout, images, topics and content is very important to me. And I wanted to ensure the origins of my blog is pure and closet to its natural origin (real, honest and close to the truth). My header I chose a customize image from Canvas Image Editor where you can select FREE open source images.
My header tagline is ‘The Purest Of It’s Origin Is At It’s Core’. This statement I had as my MSN Status (yes back in the day when I used MSN to chit-chat). The story of how this favourite motto of mine came to mind was when I was looking for a unique phrase to express the self-discover I had back then in the year 2007. A self journey to wearing the Hijab full-time. Until now, this motto of mine has a special place in my heart.
Now this year, am hoping to keepin it real on my blog by personalizing my blog with bits and pieces that represents me (in someway). And at the same time hoping to get inspiration from others bloggers on how they conduct the placement of the logos, headers and headerlines and tagline. Can’t wait to surf the posts.
Hey Hey Hey Folks! If you read just my previous blog post with title: Let the Gout Go Out With A Bang you will read about my most recent discovery this year that I had high levels of uric acids (Gout) with symptoms of:-
1. Pins and needles sensations in both of my legs that start from the above the knees till my feet.
2. Joint pains
Doctors advise me to lose weight at least 5kg to 6kg in the next 6 months (before my next schedule appointment)
And here I would like to share my journey to recovery:-
Since two years ago, I had trouble of irregular menstrual cycle that would come only after 4 (four) to 6 (six) months. After losing a bit of weight and consuming food health supplements I have gotten my period without the need of taking prescribed medication (that forces your body to bleed every month). I was concern that I had symptoms of PCOS. Here I like to share what I Consumed:-
First 3 (three) months:-
1. Shaklee DTX Complex
2. Shaklee Lecithin
3. Shaklee Omega Guard
4. Shaklee Vitamin B-Com
5. Shaklee Vitamin C
6. Shaklee Vitalea
7. Shaklee Vitamin E Complex
Another 2 months:-
8. Min Kaffe Robust Mineral Coffee
9. Garlic Tablets
And here is the results folks! Drummmmmmmm-Rollllllllllssssssss Please ❤
My initial weight was 68kg to 69kg. Alhamdulilah with small yet consistent steps I am able to go down to 62.75kg within 5 months. Will upload a before and after picture for your soon. 😀 Stay Tuned folks.

We all have heard the term: “To be or not to be, that is the question”? In this case, to blog or not to blog, that is the question. These few months has been a wild roller coaster. To be honest, I have never found myself in a position where I have hit the backspace button more in my life. At times, I have had trouble writing as if a huge gigantic writer’s block that is stuck to the inside of my skull and working it’s way like a magnetic chip. After a while, I felted that there was something bothering me, coz I was distracted by many thoughts in my head. Then I decided to sit-down and have a little ‘ME’ time and wanted to sought-out the things that has been bothering me. And here is what I found:-
A few months back, I have decided to resign from my current workplace as my youngest daughter needs to go for Speech Therapy sessions and Early Development Programs sessions at least 3 (Three) times in a week at the local Child Development Centre. And these sessions will take 1 hour up to 3 hours in a day that will last for the next 6 (six) months. Both my girls were diagnose with Learning Difficulties and Speech Delay, with my youngest she had NASB (Negative Attention Seeking Behaviour) where she could have mild to severe tantrums at times when she felt frustrated if she could not express herself. As a concern parent, I decided to take a leap of faith and handed in my 2 (two) months resignation letter. And time flies by very fast and this month will be my last month titled as a ‘Working’ mum. Only did it hit me when some of my relatives were asking me ‘What am I going to do next’? And it occurred to me that, will my plan to run a full-time online business with a part-time income work for me? What happens if it has gone down the drain? How are we going to find an alternative income to pay the bills, to buy groceries, to buy school necessities for the little ones during back-to-school seasons, to purchase necessities during next Ramadhan and Raya (Eid Mubarak)? There was a voice inside my head that grows louder and louder by each and every day as the days on my calendar count-down. The voice was so loud that the tiny, little whisper of hope was almost gone. Then chills ran down my spine, as I realised that I feared of what the future will be.
2. LEAP OF FAITH
Now that I was able to identify the factors that created the writer’s block inside my head. I admitted to myself that I feared of something that was not certain and that it was all in my head, imagining and envisioning of things that could bring negative impact to me. I told myself and kept repeating to myself that I took ‘A Leap of Faith’ and why should I fear of something that is uncertain, when I have Allah. Only then it hit me. These 4 words meant something to me:-
“A LEAP OF FAITH”
Leap : to transition / transport one place to another.
Faith: To believe in your faith and that your faith will guide you.
When we believe, truly believe that everything happens for a reason.
Is prescribed upon you [the] fighting while it (is) hateful to you. But perhaps [that] you dislike a thing and it (is) good for you; and perhaps [that] you love a thing and it (is) bad for you. And Allah knows while you (do) not know. Ayat Al-Baqarah, 2:216
I told myself that if I kept on thinking of negative thoughts, my body will take me to that direction. Apa yang kitani fikirkan adalah doa (What we think is apart of our prayers). Think positive, have the right intentions, set a positive mind, plenty of Doas & Prayers, plenty of Usaha (Actions), Istiqamah (Consistency), Tawakal (Trusting in Allah’s Plan) and always and always tanamkan rasa Syukur (Appreciation and Thankfulness)
On the other side, Alhamdulilah that I am able to identify the bumps and curves that are affecting my girls development. And I know in my heart that this sacrifice will be an investment for them and their future. Now I end this post with a question:-
“To Blog or Not to Blog” It is a choice. And we all have a choice, a choice to fear or a choice to identify that fear and do something about it.
Blogging with new life breath into every post. I recently took up a FREE ‘Blogging 101’ course by The Daily Post (WordPress.com Official Team) and they launched this Blogging 101 series to help writers kick-start their blogging journey. Now I am on Assignment 4. The lessons learnt in these Assignments are very eye-opening as they train your mind to plan and assist with your time-management on blogging. What I like about these assignments is that it’s very flexible as you can do it on your own terms. However, you need to be consistent to gather up the momentum. Finding your own flow and ways of keeping up with that rhythm.
BLOGGING MIGHTIER THAN THE PEN?
When I first started blogging, the first thing I had in my mind was… “Who’s gonna read my Blog on Beauty, Energy, Health and Wellness”… Only when I started my very own journey towards Breastfeeding and Motherhood, when I needed to research on some reading materials, the first thing I would do is pick up my reading lists annndddd asked Mr Google. And since going through my very own journey towards Motherhood, I wanted to make a difference by sharing products and services that was closets to my heart, hoping to inspire young mothers to breastfeed and perhaps sharing with the Youth on the opportunities for them when they decide to venture into blogging. If you have read my previous blogs, you may ask What are the criteria to be called a blogger? Do you require to have a academic qualification? certain IT skills? Some experience with writing?
BLOGGING LIKE A SLICE OF LAMINGTONS
When you’ve decided to come out of your shell, take smalls steps towards setting-up your blog. I think of blogging like a slice of Lamingtons. Why Lamingtons I say? hihi. Lamingtons is one of my favourite desserts, when you love something you become passionate about it. Just like a baker, a baker will try to make the perfect batch of treats over and over again to make sure that the texture and taste of the dessert is up to perfection and that it makes the consumer want more and more. When you manage to obtained that level of energy, you will give your writings in yours blogs, if not 110% you will invest your 150% into your posts. I personally prefer Blogging then a website. My aim is to connect with my readers and hoping to hear from them and what aspires them to blogging everyday.
InsyAllah, this up-coming August, I will conduct a brief session for my 21st Century Dream Dolls, hoping to inspire youths of Brunei to venture into blogging and hopefully giving them a chance to kick-start their very own online business through blogging. We will see how the sessions goes in the future. I will upload some pictures from the up-coming sessions insyAllah. Stay tuned for more updates soon.

Hello Folks! Just recently I received a notification from WordPress.com that on 3rd July 2015 marked my 3rd Year Anniversary to the blogging world. My, my how time flies so quick. It felt only like yesterday when I first started to blog. You may have questions like why did I choose my medium of Blogging? In my post recent posts, I have shared that I used to love writing in my journals and diaries. I kept every scrap of paper, tickets, photos and even love letters. haha. Those were the days. As years gone by, I noticed that as my Journals aged with me so did my writings. My form of writing has changed more and more. During Primary and High School, my writings focused on my current surroundings such as home, school and going through the emotional roller-coaster of Teen-Life. And during the first few years of marriage (yes, I still kept a journal back then) and my form of writings has grown and evolved as my perspective of life changed too.
Why Blogging instead of keeping a journal? Since establishing my online business in 2012, I wanted to make a virtual presence, whereby my customers can find the products and services that I offer at the tips of their fingertips. Since the evolution of the Internet, when someone is looking for a product, services or even product reviews or testimonials, the first thing a customer would do is check online. My vision was to connect with my customers online and at the same time making my blog as a one-stop information for breastfeeding, beauty, energy, health and wellness. And hoping to inspire more youth to venture into blogging-entrepreneurship. Looking forward to target about 50,000 visitors to my blog by the end of this year and to establish a youth-network who has the passion for writings and blogging.
