November is my birthday month so I will start to do countdown start from 1 November until 30 November on Facebook by sharing each date everyday. This year, I want to make a little different, instead of sharing date everyday, I will share useful article everyday,start from getting to know me, something that I learn, my everyday life and etc. So, after this, you will get to know me well and I hope it can help you know yourself better too.Without further due, here is the first article. It's all about 30 things makes me happy.

26. Acting "crazy" in public
I think this one is my strength I guess. I love acting “crazy” in public especially if there’s my camera.

I went to any Putrajaya parks, not for exercise but taking my self-portrait. I am happy whenever do this and seeing the result on my blog but I’m not doing it anymore because everyone playing Pokemon go in the park.
28. Reading and reply my blog comments
I'm so thankful whenever you write comments on my blog because its make my day.
29. Worship God and fellowship with fellow believer.
I'm thankful for having wonderful God that I can rely on during the bad and good times.
30. Seeing my siblings/friends happy face because of my silly joke.
I love to make a silly joke to my siblings(even my co-workers) and they called it drama. I love to do that so I can see people around me smile even though its make me look stupid.But, their smile is worth it than look stupid.

When I write this article, I stuck at 28 because I feel like “Wow! I have many things that make me happy”. How blessed I am and some time I never realised it. Its not just 30 but there’s many things that make me happy without even realised it. Some time I feel like I have a very unhappy life because I don’t have enough money to achieve my dream, to support my family(my mum and my brother still need to do hard work), I feel bad for not able to support everyone so we can have a happy life. But, as I grow up, my definition of happy life changes. I used to think, more money can make you happy. Now, for me, a happy life is not just having more money, it's how you make the money work for you to have a good life. I want to have more money to buy people time and help people that need help especially the single mothers and needy person.
No matter how you feel about your life now, you can always have a choice to look at the bright side and if you believe in God, don't feel despair,God always be on time and never forget you.We just live once and don’t take this life for granted.We should always try to live for God and live to fulfil the two main commands " Love God with all your heart,soul,mind,energy and love others just like you love yourself".

Thanks for reading and I hope you feel inspired to write your or if you don’t feel like to write 30 things, you can share what thing make you happy on the comment below. I want to know about it because I already tell mine so let’s share ya!
Thank you and see you on next article.
