Malaysian-ised Summer Picnic

Back in the UK, we used to look forward to summer. One, because exams are usually over and you'd get to have all sorts of fun and two, because you get to wear summery clothes and go for picnics!

So, two weeks ago, the SATC gals had a summer "picnic" here in KL.

It was actually done in my condo. Because it's just too hot to be sitting out under the scorching sun! :p

It was a potluck thing - I made beef stew. Dido made the yummiest fruit smoothies, Iman the dessert queen made pavlova and trifle while Tasha and Amily cheated. Tasha, as usual, made her Mom cooked. Thanks Aunty, seperti biasa makanan Aunty memang sedap! And Amily BOUGHT mee kari, pfft. And this is one girl who can actually cook up fabulous meals! Well, she got lazy after she came back, hehe.

I cleared out the space in my living room and laid out my polka-dot tablecloth. Put flowers in small vases and scatter them around. It really felt like we're having a picnic in Cardiff especially with the cool air-cond breeze. ;p

The food was yummy! We had so much fun reminiscing and stuffing our tummies silly. We couldn't get up after, masing2 tersandar perut kekenyangan.



Some of the SATC gals. My closest friends. Ever.

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.

Then.....

Kak S: Who's your designer nanti?

Me: Syaiful Baharim..

Kak S: Oh, Syaiful. Di…

Be Prepared on Your Wedding Day!

So useful, this!

Print this and give a copy to your maid of honour/best friend/sister or whoever that will be close to you on your big day.

Often, brides forget the food and drink bit, but trust me, have some snack handy. Because you WILL be hungry. And don't forget straws! You don't want to ruin your lipstick :p

Okay, everything else is self explanatory.

You're welcome!
