Majlis Pertunangan Ad & Syah 12/12/2009

Yes, I owe this entry! So here goes, it's a long one, dont say I didnt warn you!


We DIY-ed everything, but then again, it wasnt anything major pun. Just had to gubah the bouquets of flowers; we had one by my cleopatra chair where my sarung cincin was done and another just to create the right ambiance (eceh :p)

Check out the bouquet, done mostly by Mom and Aunt.

Sorry thats the best picture I can find. Nanti bila official photographer dah kasi gambar I'll upload again ok?

We cleared out everything from the house, except for that little black and white cleopatra chair. Dimana saya telah disarungkan cincin oleh bakal Aunty-in-law. My fiance's parents did not come because according to the Adat (mungkin adat orang Johor sahaja ye), only the wakil of the parents will come to the Upacara Pertunangan.

Next... Hantaran

We also DIY-ed the hantarans. Dulang hantaran disewa dengan Merisik Gallery . I took the white crystal dulangs, very chic. Hehe, sesuai la dengan my engagement theme, Modern Black & White. The decorations on the dulang was done again by family memebers. Mom, Aunts, Cousins and Uncles help out the night before. We used fresh flowers, mainly Pink, Yellow and White roses, White lilies, and Orange Reddish Gerberas. We bought all flowers from Floristika, Bangsar.

Pictures of the hantarans is here.

I balas 7 dulangs to my fiance; Sireh Junjung, Bunga Rampai, Al-Quran, Kain Baju Melayu, Kain Songket, Cake and Chocolate.

I want to talk a lil bit about my chocolate hantaran. It's gorgeous!! Both the look and the taste. I got it from Chocolate Chapters in Bangsar Shopping Centre (BSC). Mine is a box made out of chocolate with intricate chocolate roses design around the box, filled with chocolate balls inside the box! The best thing is everything about the box is made out of chocolate! And premium quality chocolate too!! They are quite efficient, I ordered my chocolate box just 2(!!) days before the engagement. Tapi, sila jangan contohi saya, orderla at least seminggu sebelum. They also can work with our budget, so that's always good news kan?

Check out some of their creations...


Ok, Baju Tunang pula! I tailor-made mine at Rouhe Collection, Ampang Park. Am very very satisfied with the baju. I absolutely love my layah!! Layah is basically a shorter-version of a veil, I think. I got that term from my tailor, I dont even know that's what it's called.

I'll let the pictures do all the talking :p

Ok, sudah perasan dengan baju sendiri :p So, on with the Make-up ! My aunts and friends love the make-up. BUT(!!) most importantly, my fiance, mom and sisters think its too tebal! I personally think its quite tebal too. But, overall I'm quite satisfied la. Sebab in pictures nampak cantik. However, ada la gambar2 yang diambil dengan quality flash(?) yang kurang baik yang telah menampakkan make-up tebal itu! Let's see the before and after then...

This is me on normal days...

and this is me on my E-day with my sistas...

Cantik kan I masa E-day? Hahaha, sila jangan tertipu, that's the magic of make-up!! :p Make-up was done by Lenny of Gorgeously Done. Overall, I give it a 3.5 out of 5. I would prefer a slightly more natural make-up kot.

Ok, last one! the Photographer! Mine was Fatini Zulnaidi of Marshamallow Art Photography . One word; GOOD!! She's very friendly, yet very professional. Senang kerja dengan dia, she fits in very well with the rest of the family. Tak kisah bila disuruh amik2 gambar banyak2 walaupun dah terlebih masa. I guess that is the benefit of an upcoming photog; since they are still new, they can focus on your event 100%. Fatini is a one-woman show, very fitting for a small ceremony like engagement or nikah. She also does take wedding reception jobs, but she will tell you straight up if she needs to hire an additional photog to help her out. I really like her and her work obviously. So I really dont mind having her as my photog for my ceremonies. I highly recommend Fatini, 5 out of 5 stars! Hehe. *no I dont get paid to say this nor do I get a discount ;)*

Oh I forgot, my Invitation! This is special :) It was made by one of my closest friends, Jid. She's really talented in designing and has just started in this business. So, if you're looking for engagement invis, save-the-dates, or any kind of invi, feel free to contact her at :) Words do not do justice to her design, so I will let the pictures do all the talking!

Gorgeous innit?

So there, a review of my E-day! I told you it's a long one.

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…

Hello Rizman Ruzaini, Bye Bye Syaiful Baharim!

Shocking kan? After my last post on Syaiful Baharim.

So what happened?

Ok, yesterday evening me and mom went to Jakel to get the lace. Sampai je Jakel, pegi la kat tingat kain exclusive tu, focus hanya untuk mencari lace. I wanted a simple, CHEAP, non-beaded lace. Any kind, asalkan cantik. The SA who helped us, who happens to be the owner and Mom's friend, mestilah tunjuk yang beaded Solstiss je. Without a doubt, Solstiss lace IS exquisite. Memang tengok muka automatically berseri-seri, bibir tersenyum-senyum. But, boy, the price! MasyaAllah..!

I was actually quite good; I actually said NO because the laces that she showed me are all very expensive, jenis ribu2 PER METRE! And I was looking to buy 4 metres of lace! So I said to Kak S (the owner), I prefer the simpler one, no beads, tak payah la Solstiss2 ni. So, she showed me some, plain, simple and sweet, I didnt have a problem getting just that.


Kak S: Who's your designer nanti?

Me: Syaiful Baharim..

Kak S: Oh, Syaiful. Di…


Inspired by my friend's wedding saree, I went searching for this beautiful material.

And look at what I found!

This one! It's white and heavily beaded, perfect for a simple baju kurung. I would probably use this for my akad nikah. That is if I had another chance of doing my wedding all over again :p

This light brown+gold-ish sheer saree screams GLAMOROUS! Imagine that for your reception dress, with some gold detailing, you can be one glamorous bride! *love*

I love this grey beaded saree as well. Very very chic! And the best thing about grey? It matches a lot of other colours to bring out different moods.

Like if you pair it with this pink saree for your bridemaids/entourage/family members, you'd achieve a very chic but sweet look.

Just look at that detailing at the bottom! That's just grand!! I would probably use this for my tunang. Oh, or baju raya also nice! Hmmmm...*thinking*

The last two sarees would be nice either for an engagement do'…
