Ramadan Tips.


Ramadan has started and two days are already over. Time flies so fast, doesn’t it? In a few hours, I’m gonna break my fast. Mom is preparing vegetable biryani for us today with prawns fry on the side. The fun thing in Ramadan is that every iftar is special and tummy-feeling.

I’m afraid that time is running too fast and that Ramadan will be over soon. It’s the best month of all the months together! I’m super excited for the remaining days and I hope we all make the best of it and not regret anything!

I know that most of you all might be new to fasting, or are just used to it but it won’t hurt to list a few tips that can help you maybe end your day tirelessly. I know, three days have already passed but no worries, there are still…27 days left! If you think this post won’t help you and that your days are going just fine, still read it and share because I’m working hard on it T-T! (Thank you in advance)

  • Plan In Advance. Your goal in Ramadan is to achieve taqwa. That’s why end your settlements in the day so that you can you get plenty of time at night to reach your goal. Remember, don’t let regret win at the end of the month.
  • Calculate How Much Ibaadah Time You Will Have.
  • Dedicate Time For Quran. Ramadan is the month of Quran so it is apparent that your time must be dedicated daily to the Quran. Recite properly, study Tafsir and reflect on its meanings.
  • Please Avoid Multitasking.
  • Try To Stay Away From Social Networking Sites. The more you keep your phone away from you, the better your Ramadan.
  • Avoid Saying Bad Words.
  • Help The Poor.
  • Help Your Family.
  • Don’t Waste Your Time On Worldly Things. Remember, it’s just temporary but the things in the hereafter are forever.
  • Learn New Surahs and Dua’s. It’s a great time to forget about posting a new photo on Instagram and opening your Quran to by heart it without any distractions.
  • Don’t Watch T.V Because It’s Just A Waste Of Time.
  • Try To Take Tiny Naps To Feel Refreshed Throughout The Day.
  • Try To Eat A healthy and Heavy Suhoor So That You Won’t Feel Fatigue The Entire Day.
  • Exercise For 20-30 Minutes To Stay Active and Physically and Mentally Fit.
  • And Last But Not The Least, Worship Your Creator With All Your Heart And Mind. Remember, You Are Fasting For Him, Not For Yourself Or To Show Off.

I hope these evident tips came in handy to you all. And I hope I will get my blessing for writing such an easy but important post. I just want all your people’s Ramadan to be guilt-free and I want you all to be happy by the end of the month because there is nothing greater than the joy of knowing that you did your best in gaining The Most Great’s attention.

Jazakallah Khaiyrun.

The Sister Bucket List!

Side by side or miles apart, sisters will always be connected by the heart.

We all have a big sister that hits us when we do something wrong and a small sister that annoys the heck outta us. But, no matter how overly caring or absolutely maddening they are, we love them and imagining life without them is in fact, impossible for us.

I have a big sister and like every sibling, we fight but we make up. We fangirl over things, we work out together, we do Karaoke when mom and dad are not home and we play Just Dance to our heart’s content! Oh, we also discuss important, heartfelt matters in the middle of the night. There’s nothing more gifted than having a sister who you can share your deepest secrets with. She will listen to you, she will give you hope, she will fight for you until the end and she will catch you when you fall.

What my point is, sisters are just damn amazing.

I know, what I said above was deep and all but in the end, after publishing this post, I’m gonna have a fight with my sister over something silly and probably after a few passing moments or when mom catches us fighting, we will get back together as if nothing happened.

Being on the same note, I have a tiny wish list of things that I want to do with my sister. Things like having an Asia tour or going on a road trip or going to our favorite band’s concert! Hopefully, one day we will be able to do all these but for now, let me give you a list of what you can do with your sister before you and she get separated or something…Just kidding…

Anyway, let’s get to listing~

  1. This one’s a must. Okay? A MUST! Go on a frickin road trip together cause that’s something where you can really create memories. Grab your car keys, grab your polaroid camera and just get the hell out of your house and out in the open road!

  2. Do you both love cooking or baking? If yes, then why don’t you try taking some cooking classes together or baking a cake or any sort of experimental desserts at home? That’s a fun way to pass time with your sister but don’t blame me if the kitchen gets messy.

  3. Call your sister right now and make an album of your favorite photos together! Decorate it with funny words and doodles and just laugh it off~ If you have already done it, then just strike this part away.

  4. You’re gonna like this one. Attend a weekend music festival. Yes, if you wanna go, don’t go with your best friend but go with your sister because best friends come and go but sisters stay for a lifetime! Sorry, that just came out of nowhere but the thing with going with your sister is that you’ll have her to talk about your favorite band mate for the rest of the days until you get tired of it yourself and trust me, she won’t even complain because she’ll be in it with you too~ *winks*

  5. Ooooo, this one’s pretty awesome. Dance a choreography together! Yaass! It’s just perfect and a mixed with fun and waves of laughter! At the end of your amazing routine, I’m sure you both will feel super proud to have done something together and that’s something you need to have


    a memory~

  6. Have a drama marathon together. Pop some popcorn, grab your


    and watch until dawn because that’s just how we have to roll.

  7. Don’t forget to take a great photo together, alright? Memories are everything.

  8. And last but not the least, treasure your awesome relationship every single of the day!

Sisters are our first friend and second mother.

10 things you probably don’t know about me.

Of course, you just stumble upon my blog and read this post and be like, “I don’t even know you so why do I need to know you deeper?”

Well, let me just say that ‘We all Start as Strangers.’

Did you see what I just did there? I used the tagline of my own Novel…

*Sigh* but also because it’s fun to read and get to know other people, right? Like, you start to get to know about me and yeah, it’s interesting but then suddenly, you begin to feel a strange connection. A connection that can make us friends.

What if by knowing about me you find your twin? What if we have things in common? What if we know each other but we don’t?

Yeah, that doesn’t make sense but as a matter of fact, there’s no harm in telling a little about myself.

So, here’ the ten things you probably don’t know or want to know about me!

  1. I’m the Author of The 13: We all Start as Strangers.
  2. I am a Cat lover and I have a cat named Ginger.
  3. I love playing games!
  4. And also have a passion for dancing.
  5. I am a good artist too, though, not that great…
  6. I live in India.
  7. I love watching Anime’s and am a total fan of Fairy Tail and Death Note!
  8. I’m 18 (well, just turned a few days ago)
  9. I became a blogger for fun.
  10. I love chocolate chip cookues and doughnuts. (Lol)

I know, I know…Ten things isn’t enough to get to know someone but hey, this is a good start, right?

Do you find something that you have in common with me? If you do, then what are you waiting for? Come on, talk to me! Let’s become friends for a lifetime! Hahaha

Don’t worry though, I plan on doing these more often so that my readers will get to know me a little deeper and in depth.

It was fun writing this post.

So long,

I’m your Writer Next Door~

Randomly promoting~

Sorry for not blogging much everyone. Let me be truthful and just say that I didn’t have any motivation to blog. And damn, being an awesome blogger and getting paid at the same time needs a little skill, don’t you think?
At the moment, I’m a bit low on my allowance to actually spend on blogging (which I think is a very important part if you wanna be a blogger) But, in any case, I would like to thank the very few of my readers who read my blog even though it’s superrrr random!
I think this post is a good time to promote my ‘stories’ that I’m currently writing on Wattpad. I’m sure many of you are Wattpadders but even if you’re not, then take my advice and make an account because I need you to follow me and vote on my stories and perhaps, might also give me your feedback whether or not it’s good or bad or at least at the brink of average.
I have started writing a new novel titled, Our Broken Paradise. It’s a Young Adult, Gore, Dystopian, Mystery, and Thriller novel. I’m sure many of you love blood and shit so I think this might be the book to pass your time.
Summary: “Sweetie, it’s our Broken Paradise.”
Oregon has turned into a deadly, abandoned city. A city so cursed and frightful, no one dares enter it or rather, are not allowed to by the guards that have closed the walls for people of Oregon to leave. Only those who survive roam the ruined paths and take shelter deep within where no soul can find them.
And as unfortunate as one can get, Lina Ling wakes up from her deep, long coma but only to find out that her memories have been broken and forgotten.
Will Lina be able to piece her life back together in such a dangerous world? Or will her fate take her to a completely different path?
“It’s all a matter of time before we become like one of them.”

And the other book which I’m writing is a Fanfiction based on our very own K-pop boy band, EXO!
Okay, who loves EXO? Raise your hand or scream or whatever! If you don’t know who EXO is, then I suggest you search it on Google right this minute, buddy.
It’s a cute, romantic, comedy and drama-ish fanfiction which I shall presume that only girls who love romance and idols will read. Lol.
Though, it won’t hurt if you give it a try, right?
SSummary: Can a writer fall in love with an Idol?
Well…it all started with a Coke.
Aaliyah, an eighteen-year novelist heads to New York for her debut book signing.
Not long after does she find out that EXO, the famous Kpop boy group was staying in the same hotel as her!
And as circumstances intertwine, each of the members gets to know a little about Aaliyah.
Slowly and then all at once.

So yeah, these two I have been simultaneously writing and I would really appreciate it if you guys would read my stories because I write them with so much love and inspiration from you guys.
You can find me on Wattpad here- https://www.wattpad.com/user/aaliyahchan
Happy Reading everyone!
