Salam Ladies (and may be Gents!) ๐Ÿ’๐Ÿง•๐Ÿป Inshallah hope everyone is doing great!
Alhamdulillah, I have 2 great news to tell you here.
First, I got new Job! Yaaaaaaaaaaaaay ๐Ÿ˜† It’s completely different to what I was doing before and this time I am going to commute by train… haha bit sad that I am not anymore working from home though.
My job is to web-coding and help to create corporate sites or manage EC sites. I never had experience to work as web coder, but its all exciting because I love to do something creative. ๐ŸŒบ
and 2nd news is BOOM! I am hosting a very first event!
๐ŸŽŠWoohooooooo๐ŸŽŠ
The event is held on 3rd of February and its called WORLD HIJAB DAY 2019 hosted by ME. lol


I am very excited to announce this really.
However, our concept is bit different to usual. Usual way, we would ask non-muslim to try out the Hijab and may be give some scarves away as present. I like this movement, because it makes awareness.
But I believe this is DONE already. Many people know wha…

[Final with present info!] What happened to SALAM SHOP?

Salam Ladies (and may be Gents!) ๐Ÿ’๐Ÿง•๐Ÿป
I know its late... but Happy New Year!! Inshallah wishing you all well for this year!
Hopefully this will be the last episode!
==================== The serious problem was, that the wave of HALAL BOOM was slowly declining at that moment.
We have started LATE to surf that wave..it was about to calm down.
It would have been different if started since 3 or 4 years ago, then by tsunami stage we get the hit and by now we were already established a strong business, but it was too late.
Nevertheless, when we had few stocks of nailpolish, it kind of made hit. And actually it was my boss’ dream to sell nailpolish, so it was great that his dream has in a way came true, but I will repeat, it was LATE... ๐Ÿ˜– We came to stage it was very nagative and kept in my mind that this would go nowhere better even if we tried harder.
We did publish the latest Halal Life to promote our business, but after publishing, sadly my boss had told me that Halal devision will b…

<Part 3> What happened to SALAM SHOP?

Salam Ladies (and may be Gents!) ๐Ÿ’๐Ÿง•๐Ÿป
Its middle of December now and Xmas is coming… I know I am muslim and some other muslim may get offensive if I congratulate christians, but my mother had taught me since I was child that I must respect other religion especially Christian and Judaism because we are the same people of the Book.
So Xmas is yet not my thing, but for all Christian people, Happy Xmas! ๐ŸŽ„๐ŸŽ‰
Let’s continue about HALAL LIFE story then!
==================== I started working with HALAL LIFE from May 2016.
My job was very simple, I just had to update at least once a week on facebook page, about our activity.
I felt bit awkward because I thought I will be interviewing people and decide layouts of magazine contents…but it was nothing like that at all, I was actually almost not allowed to be involved in creating magazine except helping in one article of introducing summer style in summer edition.



One time we had this chance of collaborating with an organization who were plann…

<Part 2> What happened to SALAM SHOP?

Salam Ladies (and may be Gents!) ๐Ÿ’
Here we are, already in December and again another late post! Sorry for being Lazy ๐Ÿ˜
I will just carry on writing about what happened after previous post. ==============================

After I said YES of being in article, two ladies visited me to my home. I was just so excited to be in Magazine, because I had this passion of encouraging other muslimahs to be themselves rather being what Japanese society expect them to be. And I have explained so to ladies about my passion.

The article was supposed to be released in autumn 2015, 
but it was delayed to release in the beginning of 2016. That was the very first HALAL LIFE was released. I think I have received for about 50 copies and added to all shipments for customers so that it will be widely known.
I thought that was it with HALAL LIFE.
But some time later, the lady who have interviewed me (from here we call her “M”) contacted me again whether we can discuss something serious.
I was not aware what she was think…

What happened to SALAM SHOP?

Salam Ladies (and may be Gents!) ๐Ÿ’
Oh my Allah! It's November already!
My last post was on August so it's been already 3 months! What had happened?! lol
Oh well, what happened was, that SALAM SHOP had CLOSED permanently.
Yep I know, it must be shocking for some people. It was such a short period of time running that online store. So some people are curious and had asked me why I have closed the shop.
Well let me tell you something.
SALAM SHOP has never been my shop. lol
Many people thought I own that shop, but thats not correct.
I was working for a company called Ace Dentsu Inc (following described as Ace), and that company had published HALAL LIFE magazine and thats how all started.
It was started by an employee of Ace who is Muslimah and one day just very random she approached to her boss (the founder of Ace) and came up with idea of SALAM SHOP, because Halal Products were totally booming at that time.
Ace is networking company and has nothing to do with Islam or Halal. But my boss got in…

Changing my object of Youtube Videos

Salam Ladies (and may be Gents!)
It was such a hectic Summer this year! Looking at my Schedule in August, just makes me WOW. I cannot believe I did all this! * I have hidden some parts for some confidentiality...
The biggest event in this month was that I co-hosted in a TV show "Chef in Hijab" by Amanda Saab who challenged in Master Chef before (and yes she is a great cook!).  My part was little bit in Tokyo area. It is planned to be aired in end of this year so I will let you know guys when I find out the date. (Although I think it will be in Singapore lol)
My very first debut in TV was in Indonesian TV, TRANS TV. If you would like to watch, and you understand either Japanese and/or Indonesian, please watch from the below Youtube link:

Currently there are so many tasks I have to complete and feels like endless. First and most importantly, I need to get a license for scooter. In Japan, it is kind of a status if you have a driving licnese because you are carrying a most vali…

English in "My Conversion"

Assalam Aleikom Ladies and Gents!
I have been receiving some inquiries via my Youtube Channel regarding Revert Story and I would like to answer here.
For the first video, some people been asking me to add english subtitle in the very first video, but unfortunately, I do not have the original file to edit and add.
If anyone would volunteer to download from youtube and add English on Japanese, I would be happy to ask, but I can not work on it from my end...I am so sorry.
If anyone would volunteer to translate and add English subtitle in my video, please let me know :)
Additionally I have to let you know guys that while I was editing the 3rd interview, I found that most of the video was interrupted badly by wind and caused hell of noise in the video, which is unable to hear and understand. I have contacted the interviewee again to re-arrange the interview, the person was very cooperative and accepted the request, so we are going to shoot the 3rd again.
Meantime, I will work on 4th inter…
