I must confess. I love journaling. It started when I was in the sixth form. Who would have thought   that a free calendar will lead me to this somewhat-creative path. I think, it was during my university years that I took journaling and creating planners to a higher level. Once I started it..I couldn’t stop! I would personalize it and make it look nice and fun to write in. I must say it took ta lot of time though. Slept pweeeetyyyy late just to ‘paste’ stuff. Anyway, here are some of my collections from 2004 till 2013. Enjoy! **nawal**

    Hi Nawal, Azlea here. I love, love, love how vibrant your journals are…. I guess what made it all the more special is how you personalized 'em. Showed my girls the pictures and they liked it too, esp #2 aka Arina who's very much into journals and notebooks (padahal still learning how to write and spell, lol!). can't wait for the girls to meet you! if you don't mind, bawak la the planners. sure diorang suke tengok…


  14. Nadewas

    Aww Hi Azlea! Thank you for reading my post 🙂 Can't wait to meet your girls! Thank you. I really love personalizing my planners especially at the beginning of the year. I'm glad that yoour girls love them! Insyallah..I'll bring some..although not all! BERAT! haha!
