Fashion Styles: Blouse

If you have been following me on this blog, you’d probably know that I’m such a girly girl. I just love being a girl. Seriously, what’s not to love? We have the best in fashion. Fashion is dedicated to us, women! From hair bands and clips to shoes and stockings, and everything in between.
I had many fashion phases growing up. The “Clueless” inspired fashion; checkered pants, preppy blouses and small furry backpacks, short dresses with platforms ala Baby Spice and so much more. But, as I grow older, I stuck to a classic and simple style. My husband loves it when I’m dressed in a simple skinny jeans/pants and blouse. And that has been my staple since I got married. I admit – I would love to be more adventurous in my styles (like in my younger days) but I don’t think my husband can tolerate that. Lol.
Over the years of experimenting, I have learned what’s good on me and what’s not, what I like and what I dislike. I prefer blouses; smart casual mostly to cotton tshirts. After turning 3…

So, I've been tagged by Sherliza from ziggy zig ah  to do this fun but also time-wasting game. LOL.

And here goes.

I'm very manja. If you know me, you'd probably know that. I think I'm hilarious. Even I laugh at myself sometimes. Haha. I'm generally a positive person. I also have very high self confidence/self esteem. I genuinely think I'm pretty. (Another example is #2 :p) I never had and don't have any issue with me being short. Again this relates to #4. Most people would think that I do, but meh being short/petite is pretty awesome. I do have issues with me being fat. This generally happens once a month when I see a photo of a slim woman in skinny jeans. It also coincides with my time of the month. Hmmm. Although honestly, I don't think I'm thattt fat. #internalconflictI am obsessed with designer handbags, which I think is going to be my (or my husband's) downfall. I also have developed a love for diamonds after I got my first diamond ring dur…

Glitch

If you see that my blog is looking a bit wonky, that's because stupid me did it!

I deleted some of my photos on my Google drive which are on this blog and now it's all gone. Am working on fixing this glitch. Just bear with me, please. 
Thank you and see you with hopefully a new look!

#prayformh370

Tonight, we mourn for the loss of those on board MH370.

Tonight, we cry with the families.

We have been hopeful. We had prayed for a different ending.

But, Allah knows best. "It is He Who gives Life and Death; and when He decides upon an affair, He says to it, "Be", and it is." (40:68)

May God grants peace to those who perished and may God ease the burden of those carrying this terrible heartache.

Ameen ya Rabb.

Burned Out

Hi guys,

It's really getting more and more difficult to update this ol' blog of mine. I just wasn't in the mood to share anything in the past few months, but today ahhh the mood to write strikes. :)

I actually wanted to share with you guys about my Yogyakarta trip. I had all the posts written, in my head, when I was there. But, they remained in my head and now I've forgotten all about it. And since then, I've been to Japan for work, did some fun parties for PinkBrolly Events and more. -_____-

Today, as I was stuck in the massive jam (what is up, KL?!) I thought about what I want in my life. Yeap, deep thoughts to entertained in the evening.

Truthfully, I am feeling so blergh with my job. See, I'm a scholar and I'm currently serving my bond. I have two more years before this bond ends and I have been weighing in on my options. After 6 years in the investment world, I can safely say that I do not have any passion for it. Sometimes I like what I do, but increa…

Fairy Lights, Orchids & New Carpet

Hi guys, 
We're in the last three days of Ramadhan already. How time flies! I pray that our ibadah will be accepted by Allah and may we continue our ibadah even after Ramadhan ends. 
 ***
The past few weekends, I have been slowly prepping our home for Eid celebrations. 
I put up some fairy lights last two weekends and oh-my-God the ambience it created was just super awesome. I have always love the ambience and feeling that fairy lights exudes. It's just so magical and romantic. 
Whenever I walk by the hallway now, I feel like I'm in some enchanted forest somewhere. Haha. Ye, berangan lebih. 
That weekend too, we finally found our carpet! Hoooyeahhhhhhhh. I don't know who is more excited over this - myself for finally finding the carpet or my husband for the end to my constant whining. :p 
Anyways, we found our carpet at the least expected place; Jalan TAR! Yeap, the place famous for its Jakels and Gulatis has a whole stretch of carpet shops. 
And buying before Raya me…

Stay: Phoenix Hotel Yogyakarta, MGallery Collection

Salam my dear readers,
Sorry I've been slow in updating this month! I've been cooking every single day, making up for the rest of the months that I dont. Haha.
So, continuing with our Yogyakarta trip.
We stayed at one of the most awesome hotels in Yogyakarta. As you may recalled in this post, I was hoping that the hotel wouldn't just be indah khabar dari rupa (beautiful only in pictures but meh in real life!). And thank you God, we weren't disappointed.
As we stepped into the hotel, we were greeted by a floor-to-ceiling glass doors, which made the medium-sized lobby light and airy. Check-in was swift and the front desk staff were all very courteous and helpful. 
The reception desk was made out of wood, beautifully carved with typical Indonesian motifs. Behind it stood a large wooden sculpture, also carved intricately. 

As you move into the hotel, you would see these designs repeating itself. It's clear that the hotel's interior is one that marry history and …
