~design, anyone?~

Can someone help me design my blog? Don’t have the time (or the skill of course) to explore. I only wanna write (macamla best pun blog ni kan, but I don’t care  (-___-) ). I’d be willing to pay (for a good price). Simple gila kot my current blog ni. Guna template yang dah ready ja. Do leave me a message if you are willing to design my unglamorous blog J Will highly appreciate it, thanks.

~my niece~

Wah, can’t wait till the week ends. The clock is ticking like urghh. Don’t have the mood to do my work, oh I’m so demotivated right now.  Sadly, Mister Husband will be away for the whole week. He’ll be here on Thursday, then Friday we’re off to Singapore! Singapore is the decision after all the thinking and pondering. We’ve planned going to Beijing or Tokyo, but that was not possible since we’re bringing our niece along (with her parents of course). She’s at an age whereby she likes to walk, talk, sometimes tiring, cos sometimes we have to have a break right. Lepas jalan, rehat sat, barula tak letih sangat J Only the little one will still be active when others are already tired. Ye la, she can sleep in her pram when she wants to, pastu dah bangun, segar, lagi aktif la. But truly, being a mother is indeed the greatest thing anyone can ever be. And I hopefully praying to Allah to be one.....

~Mulberry, oh Mulberry~

Assalamualaikum J Wah, so happy today, cos I went shopping yesterday, and I found the skirt I’m looking for. Maybe not that thick as I’d imagined, it is more flowy and the colour’s purple! Kinda interesting don’t you think? I’m gonna give out just the clues now, I’ll show them once I wear them next weekend. I’m going to Singapore, which means.. more shopping! Ya Allah, memang tak terkejar dengan current fashion trends. But my husband and I said we’re going to take it easy in Singapore. Take a walk, eat, window shopping (hopefully I can manage), maybe get on rides at the Universal Studios in Sentosa Island?
Yesterday (my weekend here in Kedah, Friday and Saturday), I went to Penang (where I went shopping). Went to the night bazaar at Batu Feringghi, and got myself a Lacoste and Paul Frank’s inspired tshirt at RM 25 total. Ok la kan? I was attracted to a Mulberry inspired sling bag in brown (like cowboy brown). Cantik kot, tapi the first price he gave was RM250. Wah, seems illogical. I bargained for RM 80, but he can’t give me. So I left, feeling so disappointed (crushed L ). Cos I promise myself not to buy a bag if its price is over RM 100. Let it be. Let it be.
Unfortunately, no pix this time. Stay tuned~

~Hana vs Yuna~

Salam semua,
Haven't have the feel to post till now (still is). But I still read the blogs I followed. Really psyched to see (pix only) Yuna vs Hana's event, and all those gorgeous ladies. How I want to dress like all of them. Been thinking of buying myself a maxi skirt, preferably cotton. I haven't worn any long skirts since year 2000, at that moment gypsy skirts. I didn't look any good in them. I have decided not to wear skirts since then. Besides, there was a time girls like to wear ladylike skirts, material: chiffons, A lines. In my opinion, those skirts only suits petites,with slender figures. Not me. Haha.. But with this current trend, using a much thickier material than chiffon , is very eye-soothing (sejuk mata memandang) and comfortable (wear it lose). Do you think I would look short? Cos sometimes I overthink.. I seldomly wear heels (prefer flats), so this might make me look shorter. But hey, there is a guest to YunaHana's event wearing maxi skirts with flats!! (I imagined her in flats – sebab tak nampak pun). She looks so cute. Here's the photo.  
Credit to counthethread, amazing pix.
 Referring to my previous post, FYI, I’ve watched Harry Potter, and also Rapunzel in 3D. Harry Potter was less interesting than expected. Read the book, so kinda disappointed they left out important stuff. No spoilers here, kot2 ada more details in the second part, mana tau kan J I was reminded why I never want to watch 3D movies EVER. Rapunzel proves it all. 3D is quite dark (with or without the 3D glasses), no details can be seen. I have to strain my eyes to focus on the details of the CGI, but no, blurry gila kot. Not worth the money. This is my second time watching movies in 3D, and I’ll never ever want to watch it again.  But I don’t know. Maybe you guys like to watch in 3D? Tell me. I really really wanna know J

Hey, I’ve bought Vogue British with Emma Watson on the cover. I was attracted to her style, her model face, that’s why I bought it. Here’s a preview.
And this is me going out (nak jugak tunjuk sikit kan J )
polkadotted yellow shawl Arzu, gold top Topshop, grey cardigan Promod, bag LV
 Bye I

~Tribute to fellow blogger~

Assalamualaikum semua,
Know what? I’ve come across a blogger, Zafirah Hanis, which is also a Kedahan (ye kot); though maybe I don’t declare myself as total Kedahan cos almost 20 years of my life was spent in Perlis, since kindergarten till the end of my university. She’s a petite and uber cute and sweet looking. Well, I didn’t greet her face to face, just manage to glance at her (I recognize her straight away) as I was already going into the cinema hall. She was at the snack counter. I was with my husband, (besides me being so shy), is another reason I don’t greet her. Well, she doesn’t know me either. It would be rather weird if I go: “Hi, hmm, adik ni blogger kan? Akak dok follow blog adik. Comey la adik ni. Hik3. Nk tgkap gambar x?” Well, don’t know how it would have turned out J

Looking at how cute and fresh she was, I think maybe I’m too old (in this blogging thing). And I’m married. Married girls create blogs about their kids, but me.. no kids (yet.. pray for me), so the story would be about me. So, here are some of my weekend outfits. I’m not into quirky looks (it suited Zafirah Hanis so well though) but a little simpler looks, like these pics below. Enjoy!! (stripes, geometrical, flowers and leopard prints).
(Arzu shawl, Topshop stripe top, zara army green long sleeve tshirt, jeans from Bread&Butter, Loewe bag, shoes Sembonia)
(Sugarscarf cotton shawl, Roxy long sleeve top, Message long blouse, Esprit jeans)

(Sugarscarf gypsy shawl, F21 cardigan, vintage flower top, Zara jeans, and flats J )
(Arzu shawl, Zara blazer jacket, Promod leopard top, AX snake print jeans, LV bag)

Oh, did I mention I watched Rapunzel? Ahhh, I’m so in love with the movie, the characters, the sceneries, the 3D technologies, the details (oh how each strand of her hair is made in detail – incredible, Subhanallah - I was in awe throughout the movie, and laughing out loud of course).. I’m still in fantasy right now, even after like almost 24 hours since I watched the movie. I would HIGHLY recommend this movie. I don’t know how’s Harry Porter gonna turn out, but I’m sure this one will top it off undeniably. (though I really love Harry Porter – just don’t yet have the time to watch it – yang ada semalam tak sempat nak semayang asar lak). I read the book. Nice one J Can't wait to watch that next week (harap2 la).

~Shopping is the Best T H E R A P Y~

Hey, I would love to be in therapy for the rest of my life! (..if... it didn’t cost me that much. LOL. Like that can happen). I’ve been treating myself to a lot of shopping this month. A few shawls (yes, I’m beginning to wear them every weekend – throwing out the bawals – well, not literally). And now I’m buying more online! Urgh, I hate that I shop endlessly. Tp sayangla tak beli, kan2? J
I’m currently into animal prints. I’ve bought 2 pieces of textiles from Jakel Shah Alam, which combines a tiger print top and a toned skirt. That would be my new baju kurung, which I can’t wait to see how it turns out. Maybe I’ll show you guys once it’s ready from the tailor. I have also bought a leopard printed top from Zara. Another one I’m looking into is a leopard printed cotton shawl. I will buy it online later this evening. Wah, so nice, and I can’t resist from shopping online. Well, if you can, how’d you do it? Bagila tips J Bukan takmau shopping online lagi, tapi nak try to reduce. Here I am, saying this thing, and yet still doing online shopping nonstop *__* HELP.
There’s more; I’ve been longing to have this bag from Mulberry, with real leopard skin, and also MiuMiu’s leopard printed clogs. They’ll both complement all my other animal prints collections.  They’ll be in my wish list which will remain.. a WISH LIST. Haha..

Selalu cakap merapu kan? Orang Kedah cakap mereben. Haha. Straying off dunno exactly what to say. Anyways, thanks a bunch for reading this entry.
p.s: lynn-thegudigudigurl, you’re my first follower, gonna follow you too. Thanks a lot, terharu I tau *teary*

~Go paperless~

Assalamualaikum gorgeous folks. Just wanna share with all of you on what I get from Maybank's latest ad. A piece of ad on Going Paperless. This is how you can change for the nature (taken from the ad):

  1. RE-USE scrap paper
  2. TURN OFF the plug
  3. NO PLASTIC bag day
  4. LOOK for recycle bin
  5. CAR POOL today
  6. NO STYROFOAM food pack
  7. RECYCLE newspaper
  8. START RECYCLE today
  10. PRINT on both sides
  11. PLANT a tree today
  12. Use RECHARGEABLE battery

I think we can all apply this in our work. Be it printing out assignment papers, drafts, paperworks, and so on. So, good luck and make yourself proud! :)

Assalamualaikum gorgeous people :) I'm really happy to see a post by Sharifah Kirana, (a professional and renowned designer) on my wedding. Wah, it was a 2-years-ago post. Dah lama dah. But it reminds me of the beautiful wedding dress, and all the settings, likey likey :D

Really like what Sharifah Kirana has done to my dress, but I can't wear them now, I'm not as slim as during the wedding day (xsempat makan puas pun for that whole 2 days). Of course la badan naik like after a year of marriage. Dont know how other ladies out there can maintain even after having kids! Applause to them.

So, back to the topic, check out her design by clicking on her name above. You'll surely love her work :)

Here's a piece my sis bought, which I think is superb.  I'd get it if she hadnt seen it first. Haha.. Dont wanna post my wedding pix, just check out her blog *wink*

~Awareness on Environment~

I know we can’t help from ‘contributing’ to ozone depletion, i.e CFC’s like air-conditioners (don’t we all use it?), and aerosols (from pressured fragrance, deodorant sprays, paints and insecticides - which I think most of us use).

I know I’m not that perfect to talk about saving the world, but we can do something to help reduce the damage and protect the ozone layer. So here’s what I found out on in summary:
Don't use any aerosols with CFCs as propellant.
Make sure your fridge is as highly rated as it can be and is working properly.
Stop littering and REDUCE, RECYCLE, REUSE more often or always then the pollution in the air will decay and the holes in the ozone layer will patch.
Get rid of all the cars and ALL the ships that blow smoke (can we? – but nothing’s impossible ‘ite J )
Don’t use a lot of energy in your home. THAT speeds up Ozone Depletion
Ban CFCs globally.
Ban the burning of fossil fuels (for the slight reduction in oxygen, and the increase in hot water vapor).
Avoid cutting down trees, except to replace fossil fuels. Preen forests for rotting vegetation.
Reduce aircraft flights, and reduce the altitude that they fly at.
Don't use the car so much.
Turn of the lights and the faucet when not in use.
No heater / air conditioner:
>  Use blankets to stay warm in the winter.
> Wear thinner clothes in the summer to stay cool.

My view:
Go for recycled t-shirts and stationeries, paper bags.
Recycle all plastics and other materials which can be recycled (bottles - cleansers, detergents, shower gels - this alone on my opinion can be a huge contribution to reduce waste and save the planet)
Choose hybrids (I really like Toyota Prius FYI)
Do not burn your trash
And many other ways to show our appreciation to this world.

Surrounding of my future home..

So guys, make yourself aware of the environment that surrounds you J

~Hijab Wearer~

Assalamualaikum and hi all,

Hey, I think I pose like a nerd most of the times. Haha.. So, this is my style going out. Pakai ngan tudung bawal ja, boleh? LOL. Dont know how I'd wear a shawl, tried them, and been trying still, but I find it less suitable for my face (compared to a bawal or in a more correct word - voile).

So, here's a story bout me wearing hijab. I’ve just started wearing hijab since I got married. It’s been almost three years, and I think it’s not difficult to do so. Before, I didn’t think I can wear like non-hijabist wear when I become a hijabist (hijabi or hijabist? inform me if I'm wrong, thanks) - to wear short sleeved tops or knee length skirt. But now I know, cos hijabists are also as stylist as other non-hijabists out there, maybe more J  Besides, there is no such thing as a BAD HAIR DAY. LOL. I’m not that fashionable on choosing / wearing hijab, cos I tend to wear square hijab, avoiding shawls cos eventually my head would look so round, I feel bald. Tak pecaya? Believe it. But I always brave myself to put on shawls instead of a chiffon square scarf (which I need to starch to get the perfect awning. LOL). Been shopping cotton shawls online (three shipments in 2 weeks - crazy), from these people, do check them out cos they have great variety of muslimah stuff: Butik eDast, SugarScarf, and Butik Najjah.

Surah an-Nur ayat 31, a friendly reminder to myself and all Muslimah all around the world:

And say to the faithful women to lower their gazes, and to guard their private parts, and not to display their adornment except what is apparent of it, and to extend their headcoverings (khimars) to cover their bosoms (jaybs), and not to display their adornment except to their husbands, or their fathers, or their husband's fathers, or their sons, or their husband's sons, or their brothers, or their brothers' sons, or their sisters' sons, or their womenfolk, or what their right hands rule (slaves), or the followers from the men who do not feel sexual desire, or the small children to whom the nakedness of women is not apparent, and not to strike their feet (on the ground) so as to make known what they hide of their adornments. And turn in repentance to Allah together, O you the faithful, in order that you are successful.
 Enjoy  J
Thanks for reading this post *all grin - sengeh*

I have obsessions on accessories this moment of time. Been buying quite a few of them this few months. My first big ring (after like 4 years not buying one of that size) is my current favorite. There are a few more, I'll upload them later.

Bangles from Nose, gift from my mum from Mekah. Old beaded bracelet.
F21 green oversized ring. MiuMiu sling bag in powder pink.

I'm still figuring out how my blog would look like. Cos I've been going through other blogs, and they're all AWESOME! I don't know where to start, or what to tell. I've been editing a few pix, but still hesitated to put them up cos I'm afraid they don't appear good enough. Haha... I've asked my sis to design my blog's background, and she's still working on it. Hope it turns out well :D I've been blogging from my office, so I don't have the time to properly upload pix or edit my blog's design and what not (though I really REALLY want to). I need to get a broadband for myself and blog from home :)

~first humble entry~

My first entry is this. I have never imagined I would be writing in a blog, like ever. I'm pushing myself to just try it out. Can I, I mean try it out? I think bloggers should be committed to blogging, agree? :) My reason for blogging is that I've been surfing on great fashion bloggers for the last few months. I didn't think that blogging (reading or writing) would be so much fun! At first I came across international bloggers from Australia, USA and so on. But then I came across bloggers from Malaysia. Wow, they're much more related to me (their fashion sense, and their lifes). Applause to all Malaysian bloggers, and I hope to be part of them :) Thanks for reading this ever so boring entry of mine.
