Is It Sleep Paralysis?

It has been a few consecutive days of sleeping at 2am and waking up at 7.30am for classes, with no afternoon naps.

Around 68% of Malaysians are Malays, therefore the traffic on highways are crazy during Hari Raya as more than half of the population ‘balik kampung’ to celebrate this festive seasons with their loved ones. How about the other 32% then? Go on trips then!! To be clear,…
