    Tokyo is a city of manners. My goodness, I thought of visiting schools there to put Daniel and Mariam so they can grow up here being polite. Literally, guys, Japanese people are nice to EVERYBODY. You matsalleh, you Muslim, you old, you young, they’ll treat you with a smile and utmost...

    I never told anyone this but a few years back, this happened to Dean and I. We were on a flight to Singapore, full of hope and excitement. We were about to pitch FashionValet to a Japanese VC there, our first international VC. We were confident, numbers looked good, spirits were high,...

    Rezeki just comes unexpectedly most of time, when you least expect it to. When Dean and I work, we really really don’t look for any recognition or to win awards or anything like that. It’s truly what we love doing, building a business together, and what’s best is that we get to help t...

    This is Mariam’s first time traveling so I had to take her to do her passport today because it was the only morning I had free. I decided to be brave and just take her alone, no nanny or Kak Siti or moms or anyone to help me out. So one hand carrying my bag (filled with wet wipes, bis...
