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.

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'…

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…

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!
