The first month of 2018 has been very kind to me and I was totally thrilled to have met this amazing girl I've been following for years! Yessss! Noor Tagouri
was here in Singapore for a couple of days before heading to Yuna's wedding in KL and I managed to do lunch with her at Arab street. So for those of you who don't know, I just gave birth 3 months ago and never really gone out with my little one alone. I decided to do a trial outing the day before I met Noor, just to be sure I can handle Iman on the stroller in and out of the cab and so on. Alhamdulillah the practice went great and I was super excited to see her the next day.
It was a rainy afternoon but that didn't stop me from leaving my place. Thank god for uber and my one hand stroller, I made it to Zam Zam in 1 piece with Iman. As the rain got heavier, we took our time with lunch, and talked about everything under the sun, travelling, wedding, Trump, fashion, food...

I honestly didn't know anything about Singapore before coming. I was definitely surprised to see how diverse it was, and didn't realize how young the country is.
7) A piece of advice for girls out there who wants to be you...
Whatever it is that you are "insecure" about --- whatever it is that makes you different, makes you, you, use it to your advantage. Make it a strength. Own it. That is what will make you relatable, and stronger at whatever you pursue.
