Atiqah’s death sentence set aside!

Today we’ve received wonderful news: the Malaysian Court of Appeal has set aside Atiqah’s death sentence, replacing it with 12 years imprisonment.

We’re still waiting … Continue reading

I can’t really cook or bake or sew and the last time I did handicrafts I superglued my finger to an ice cream stick. I have thus decided that … Continue reading
