1. Saya anak bongsu dari 4 beradik. Perempuan kesemuanya dan kesemua adik-beradik saya bermula dengan nama ‘Su’. Mereka ialah Suzalina, Suhani, Suhaida dan saya sendiri, Suraya. Ayah saya berketurunan Jawa dan ibu saya berketurunan Bugis. Saya mempunyai darah keturunan Cina disebelah ayah, sebab itu mata saya sepet. Ibu dan Bapa saya berasal dari Johor, kemudian mereka berpindah ke Pahang. Tapi kalau orang tanya saya berasal dari mana, saya akan cakap saya orang Johor! Sekarang saya bekerja di Kuala Lumpur di sebuah syarikat Badan Berkanun sebagai Setiausaha dan tinggal di Ampang. Kakak ke-3 saya meninggal dalam satu kemalangan jalan raya pada tahun 1990, 2 hari selepas majlis perkahwinan beliau.

Gambar di ambil di kampung emak di Kampung Kuala Paya, Segamat Johor pada tahun 1982

2. Berkahwin pada Jun 2009 dan hanya mengandung selepas hampir 3 tahun menunggu. Berjaya hamil selepas berjumpa dengan Doktor Pakar dan melalui process ‘fertility assessment’. Mendapat ‘morning sickness’ yang sangat teruk sepanjang kehamilan. Anak saya Mohamad Shein Iskandar lahir pada 12/12/12 di Gleneagles Intan Medical Centre Kuala Lumpur. Cantik kan tarikh lahir anak saya? Semuanya secara kebetulan kerana saya boleh memilih tarikh untuk melahirkan anak saya kerana saya bersalin dengan kaedah caesarian. Saya menghadapi masalah ‘Placenta Previa Stage 2’. Anda boleh membaca pengalaman saya dibilik bedah disini. Satu pengalaman yang tidak mungkin akan saya lupakan sampai bila-bila.

Sempat menghadiri Majlis Perkahwinan salah seorang sahabat di Sime Darby Convention Center 5 hari sebelum melahirkan anak.

3. Saya suka bersukan. Saya pernah mewakili Syarikat untuk FELDA Futsal FAM peringkat Kebangsaan pada tahun 2009. Walaupun kalah dipusingan awal, tetapi pengalaman bermain futsal di peringkat kebangsaan tidak dapat saya lupakan. Selain dari Futsal, saya juga boleh bermain Bola Jaring, Bola Tampar, Badminton, Bola Sepak Wanita dan menyertai Marathon. Selain itu juga saya suka melakukan activity outdoor seperti paintball. Jika mempunyai peluang, saya teringin melakukan ‘bungee jumping’. Selain daripada itu, saya juga berkebolehan untuk menari tarian traditional dan sering melakukan persembahan setiap kali Majlis Makan Malam Syarikat.

4. Saya suka memasak. Saya belakar memasak dari emak dan kakak sulong saya. Saya boleh masak masakan Melayu dan Western. Peminat nombor satu masakan saya semestinya suami saya! Anda boleh membaca entry masakan saya disini.

Memasak ‘Sambal Tahun’ sejenis masakan Orang Jawa. Resepi dah cara memasak disini.

5. Saya pernah disahkan mempunya masalah Mild OCD (Obsessive Compulsive Disorder) selepas saya melahirkan anak saya. OCD banyak mempengaruhi kehidupan saya sehingga menjejaskan kesihatan saya. Tetapi selepas mendapat rawatan daripada doktor di Hospital, saya sekarang sudah bebas dari masalah Mild OCD dan menjalani hidup dengan lebih berkualiti, gembira dan sihat.

FIVE FACTS ABOUT STYLEBYSYA

  1. I’m a nomad. My dad is from Johor. My mum is from Negeri Sembilan. I was born in Kelantan. At two years old, my whole family lived in Liverpool where we were neighbours to Wayne Rooney. At six, we moved to Ipoh. Currently, as I am studying in KL, I live with my husband here. So if you ask me “Asal mana?” I swear I don’t know the answer. Although, I’m comfortable being called an Ipoh girl having spent majority of my lifetime there. 123
  2. I’m a high achiever. Compared to my family, I’m the worst student. I do not enjoy the stress of exams or the confinement of the classroom. However, I have managed to score straight A’s for all major exams: UPSR, PMR, SPM. Currently, I am an intern under 1MDB-Yayasan Sime Darby ‘Work Grant’ Program which has a 4 year contract. My position is the Personal Assistant to the Head of Research, Postgraduate, Kuliyyah of Engineering. I am also on full-scholarship for law school. Did I mention I’m also a debater?
    234 345
  3. I have been wearing the hijab fully for as long as I have been a hijab blogger. Before 2014, I’ve been wearing the hijab on and off since primary school.567
  4. I love the arts. I’m a grade 6 pianist and a certified traditional dancer. I was cheerleading back in my all-girl school. I’ve directed plays back in school. I also directed the Mocktrial ‘3 Kalam’ back in Centre for Foundation Studies, IIUM. Currently, I am with The Classroom Project, a minimalist theatre production in IIUM although I have stopped performing arts.678
  5. I am adventurous and I love sports. In cheerleading, I was the flyer. I am also an avid futsal player. Everytime there’s a tournament in college, I would be first in line to sign up. People didn’t think I could play because I look ‘girly’. But in the court, I have a totally different persona. I love skiing although it cannot be done here. The thrill and the adrenaline rush is something I crave for. Having toned muscles like the Victoria’s Secret angels is a plus!789 890
