SSF Carpets

Yesterday I dragged my husband to SSF Curtain Bandar Sri Damansara to have a look at their carpet collections.

I know that they carry modern carpets since I got our existing one from there almost 3 years ago.

In the car, my husband said, "I think we're gonna find one here!"

Well, he was too optimistic. Because we left without a carpet. Sigh.

This time around, SSF had a lot of those shaggy ones. Not my cup of tea. But, I notice that they are of really good quality as well, feels soft and lush. So if you're looking for those shaggy ones, go on to SSF. They were priced from rm1000+. Didn't check the exact pricing since I'm not into those shaggy kinda carpets.

I found two designs that I like. And one that I was totally in love with. But they were all wrong. Sizing, colour, style - all does not fit into our home.

This one is really lush. You can't really see it from the picture, but the colour of the roses are a mix of black, beige and grey. I love that you can see the rose individually. It's such a unique piece and my husband really loves it. That guy doesn't easily like stuff, so this is like the highest of endorsement. Hehe. But, the size is a bit too small for our living. Hence, no go. This beautiful piece goes for rm4500+ if you're interested.

And this one, I like that it's not your normal rectangle or round carpets. The flower-y outline gives the carpet a unique shape. I imagine this piece in a black and white baroque-themed study. It's very Va-Va-Voom. Definitely doesn't fit in my cozy homey woody living. Oh this was selling for around rm899, if I remember correctly.

See that detailing? Beautiful. 

And this would fit perfectly in our living, 'cept for the colour. Sigh. I really LOVE this. It's the modern designed carpet that I have in mind. The size is like our current carpet, about 7ft by 5ft. Too small on its own, but two of them would be perfect. And there were two of this exact carpets!!! The universe was just not on my side on that day. There were none in duck egg blue. MAJOR bummed. Price for this was a reasonable rm900+.

If only this is in duck egg blue. :( 


And so, the search for the perfect carpet continues. Much to my husband's disappointment.

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

And look at what I found!

This one just.takes.my.breath.away.! 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.

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!
