The not-so-Amazing Race

Thursday, June 27th 2013 will always be a date that I will remember.

That was the day we took off to Yogyakarta for a lil getaway. 

Our flight was a morning one. 9.45am to be exact. 

Stayed up late the night before to pack and to play Candy Crush -_____- 

Woke up late at 6.30am the next morning. And rushed like crazy, so we could leave the house to KL Sentral by 7am. 

Called for a taxi to come at 7am, went downstairs to our condo's lobby at 7am, and there was no taxi! 

Husband called the taxi company and was informed that the taxi had came and left!!!!! Husband was furious. Called for other cab companies and no taxis were available that morning. Great! 

So, we took our car and drove to my mom's (thank God we live so near each other!) so she could dropped us off in KL Sentral. 

Got to KL Sentral by 7.30-ish and waited in the blardy connecting bus to LCCT for 30 minutes before the bus finally moved at 8am! 

Reached LCCT at 9.15am! Ran like crazy with our two luggages to the baggage drop-off counter. We had checked in online the day before, so just need to check in one luggage. Reached the counter and was told that the baggage check-in had closed. Just.what.we.needed. 

Decided to leave our luggage at the airport and chuck everything into a Longchamp luggage tote. Thank God I always bring that bag along, just in case. Was irritated/furious/bummed that I had to leave my sister's luggage there! I felt so guilty, but she's cool. 

Then, we ran allllll the way through the custom, the baggage scanner and to the airplane. It didnt help that our aircraft was parked so far away!  Ran and made it just in the nick of time.

After we caught our breaths in the plane and as I was about to doze off, I suddenly hear my husband whispered,

"We didn't bring 100million Rupiah, right?" -_____-

I replied, "No Sayang, I didnt tukar 32,000 Ringgit for this trip." And laughed at his face.

And with that he ticked the NO box on the Customs Declaration Form.

The start of this trip taught us that;

1. I shouldn't laughed at people who had experienced missing/rushing for their flight (I did this just a few weeks ago to my colleagues, shaking my head at them, thinking that my husband and I will NEVER experience that. Guess who's laughing now?)

2. My husband and I can never be in The Amazing Race. We stink under pressure!

3. We need to always book the blardy taxi the night before even if there's a booking fee! (We actually called the night before but refused to booked since we had to pay an extra rm10. We're not usually the "berkira" type, but don't know what got into us this time!)

4. Husband and I can go through anything now. We laughed about our drama in the plane and promised each other NOT to do anything like that anymore.

5. And my husband, the lawyer, cannot do numbers.

Rest assured, there was no more drama for the rest of our trip. Hee.

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'…
