I can assure you that one would be much smarter without smartphone.
One the second week of fasting, I lost my phone during baju raya shopping with the kids. Long story short, it happened due to my own carelessness. I did the police report and all but, well, it would very difficult to recover your stolen phone.
So anyway, I spent the rest of Ramadhan without a smartphone and relied to my husband’s whenever I needed to communicate with anyone.
Surprisingly, I kind of liking it. Time was well spent. I managed to spend up to 4 hours on Reza’s home tuition. And I actually bought 2 different newspapers every morning because reading news is exciting again – but I had no access to online news portal.
Ditching your smartphone won’t kill you. That’s for sure. I would strongly recommend any of you to try living without your smartphone for a week. It’s a mental detoxification. Time moves slowly and you will begin to see things you couldn’t before.
We celebrated Raya this year minimally. My mum just came back from Keningau and tending her is more vital than everything. My father in law too is still in his recovering stage.
We spent 1st day of Raya at my mum’s house and brought the kids jalan-jalan on the 2nd and 3rd day. But now I’m back my mum’s house again.
Cut my hair short recently. An old fashion school girl cut. Told the hairdresser that layering is not an option because I want to create some thick hair illusion. 1st time trying it as an adult. So lucky that it suits me well.
After literally 20 – 25 snapping, plus the power of Vivo V9 front camera. What a deception. But we all like sugar coated reality, don’t we?
