May peace be upon you and Hello! I’m really glad you took the time to stop by.

At Lake Tekapo, New Zealand during our honeymoon.

I’m Siti Mardhiah Mahmood, the fun-sized writer behind this blog. I’m 28, a wife and mother of one (to an adorable little baby boy!). Officially, I’m trained in accounting and management, and spent some years working in that line. Unofficially, writing has always been something I enjoyed since childhood, which resulted in several part-time writing and editing gigs along the years.

Currently, I am a homemaker and my focus is on raising my family in the best ways possible as good human beings, pious Muslims insyaAllah. I’ve always loved to write and this blog is a space for my moments of introspection. My other interests include crafting, embroidery, traveling, baking and cooking, as well as healthy and natural living.

I can be contacted at [mardmood@gmail.com].

    1. Hi Wanderlust Gene! Thanks for your comment, I enjoy looking at the beautiful photos you capture in Another Paradise πŸ™‚ Thanks for stopping by!

  1. Hello newest Spikey! I know, a bit corny, eh, but that’s the term that has come to stick for those folk who are part of the clan known to be followers of Uncle Spike πŸ™‚

    Thank you… I really appreciate that as I for one, know how many interesting and entertaining blogs are out there.

    My aim is to deliver an eclectic offering of posts, from my β€˜point n shoot’ attempts at basic photography, to the sharing of my travel adventures over the decades, as well as day to day happenings here on the farm. Oh, plus a few observations on life as I see it, thrown in for good measure.

    My promise to you is not to be overbearing, just a couple of posts a day, maybe 3 at weekends if I have something special to share. But if you are at a loose end one day, maybe you’ll enjoy trawling through some of my older stuff too. I have added plenty of categories to help in said digging process.

    Thanks again and hope you have a great day…


      1. Hi Ade, well I’m a Malay by race so my first language is actually in Malay or Bahasa Melayu. It’s slightly different from Bahasa Indonesia though, but I do read novels in bahasa indonesia like Ketika Cinta Bertasbih and Ayat-ayat Cinta by Habiburrahman El Shirazy. πŸ™‚ I love to read both english and bahasa novels ❀

    1. Thanks for the nomination Naomi! I thought your blog was great btw, love the font and fashion illustrations. Now let me see if I can spare some time to post about this award, countless draft posts waiting to be completed, but I shall try…


      1. Hi Mardhiah, Thank you so much. I look forward to reading your post once completed. I must warn you that it took me 7 hours to do with the occasional breaks lol πŸ™‚

        – Naomi
