Oh my Garden!

My new favourite spot in the house is currently my balcony cum "garden".

Last two weeks, I dragged Mom to Sungai Buloh to get meself some plants.

A lil bit of history - I tried caring for flowers before, but all died because one, I didnt water them *facepalm* and two because my balcony gets direct sunlight during the day. So none of those "feminine" flowers could stand the scorching sun.

So, with all that in mind, I specifically wanted to get plants and flowers that are more "macho" against the sunlight. Went to the nursery and asked the abang to recommend me some "tahan panas" plants.

And so far, my lil garden is looking so green and good! Ahhh, the flowers are blooming and the green plants are healthy looking! I bought some lanterns and have tea at the balcony these days. That was just so serene. Life's small lil pleasures.

Oh, I also think that my talking to the flowers and plants help them grow. I think they love me talking to them, and c'mon if you know me, you'd know that I absolutely LOVE talking!

Here are some pictures of my favourite spot.

The view during the day.

And the view during the night. Sorry, you can't really see the plants at night, but I just wanted to show the mood the lanterns and candles exudes!

Since I took these pictures, I have added some more plants. Oh, I also have a rosemary and a basil! I want to get some chili plant next.

I also want to paint those garden furniture to a pale yellow colour. I think that would make my garden more lively and vibrant.

For now, I'm happy :)

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'…
