whatwasithinking photoshoot

Isn't filling up form is a difficult task? due to lack of info .. susah tau isi borang kerja kalau tak aktif masa belajar T_T

While penning done, I found these photos from my whatwasithinking kind of photoshoot with a magazine..it was for brunei bridal so paham2 je la fesyen nye.. takpe gelak je..aku pon gelak2 juga ni, haha ada orang gila






It was two years back, I guess..hmm, I always like bridal-dress-fitting, tapi taknak la yang macam ni.. the dresses were nice sebenarnya, but minus the overdone accessories. And here's mine, Err took our pictures during my wedding day, I didn't hire a wedding planner so from top to toe was my own idea, or design =)


orang sabah mestilah pakai mutiara =D

p/s elok lagila muka tak makeup tebal2 ni

Layla and Majnun, and my self made white blouse!

Both Jejak Rasul and Syahadah are good programmes to watch. Obviously their similarities in Islamic documentary; Jejak Rasul is more on cruising through the history, whereas Syahadah is focusing on the achievement among Eurasian Muslim these days.

Eurasia is the crossroad of Western Asia and Eastern Europe; Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Uzbekistan, Azerbaijan (now showing)

I was cooking and watching Syahadah and as the city of Baku part, I missed the visual. But what makes the interesting narration was, it is told that the popular Arabic love story Layla and Majnun according to Azerbaijani adaptation became the Middle East's first opera and premiered in Baku on 1908, so I googled it (read : semangat! )


Baku is the capital city of Azerbaijan, an old city and some say it’s the ‘Paris of the east’ O_O nak pegi! nak pegi!

Among the popular place to visit is the Palace of the Shirvanshah - a memorial complex built as the sacred place for tomb of Sayyed Yahya (a sufi) and Layla and Majnun was performed in here.

Layla and Majnun ; based on the real story of Qays ibn al-Mulawwah who fell in love with Layla bint Mahdi, but was refused by Layla’s father. Qays then began wandering the surrounding desert seen reciting poetry to himself or writing in the sand with a stick - that was so very romantic ok!

I pass by these walls, the walls of Layla
And I kiss this wall and that wall
It’s not Love of the houses that has taken my heart
But of the One who dwells in those houses

Majnun Layla, which means "Driven mad by Layla" haaa I’m melting as I read several more lines of poems by Qays…what's more romantic than a dedicated poem?? huhu note to myself: tak suke tau semangat2 sgt macam ni ^_^

Ok ok back to reality.

I have this brownish motif long skirt. As I couldn’t find a perfect match for the skirt, this idea of sewing a blouse suddenly knocks me, see the result


Bought these – English white cotton, buttons, lace

A blouse as the measurement (bayang2 aku kah?)
and..

Taraaa!! What do you think??

teknik jahitan takde, so I call this baju as ' baju asal bole' =D =D

It's time to join the crowd

Starting your morning off right is the way to make sure you'll be in a good mood, all day long.

And the 8-10am class and unfinished assignments definitely not a reason to waking up. Ok, I'm in the mode of picking up the lost momentum. Susah la belajar T_T

I texted fizah to confirm again pasal Jalan TAR =D =D i'ts time to join the crowd! Punya la seksa nak tunggu pukul 10pagi kan..Habis kelas je, terus cabut.. park cun2, and yeah me and my shopping company, and the broken promise - konon tak nak exceed 2 jam..We were willingly packed in the crowd =D

So Jln Tar highlights this year- kurung siti, tudung siti, tudung ekin (mana tudung heliza menghilang?) 50% off last year baju kurung (haha), bunga2, kuih raya, home deco items, gajah duduk, crocs, ketupat palas, dodol ..etc..


fun in the sun, sweat goes on.. beli tudung je tapi penat! nasib baik boleh minum ( T_T ) terus beli ketupat dan daging dendeng..alang2 beraya awal.


sapa tak reti buat ketupat palas, angkat tangan!

adikku yang comel


Today is the last day for KC retail, but we still open online order with further discount. Check

meniaga demi seketul MAC =D

hari ini dalam sejarah 090909

extra picture from our last buka puasa


It's becoming all so clear in my mind, me and my fav cuz have been waiting today's special date ; 090909! It was exactly 10 years back when we (yayasan sabah students) had this so called 'perkampungan YS' somewhere at cheras, hmm..Sekolah Alam Shah kot

=D so yeah if only I'd started blogging years ago.. eh eh actually I did so by using the GeoCities website.. lalala I'm not telling you my link tho .. segan ok ntahapa2 cerita but the content basically about my routine practical work when I was in the third year of university..haa, lama tak lama dah aku memblog ni kan =D

my GeoCities blog =P I've not really told anyone about this before, kira macam blog syok sendiri la hmm..hmmm.. it's really a nice feeling and relaxation reading thru it again. I loved this song so much that I queued it in my own flash music player .. siap buat flash lagi, sekarang sumpah dah taktau nak buat flash2 ni =|

layan dulu





There's an opening job vacancy as a lecturer, macam menarik. But hubby doesn't think it's a good idea for me working a 9-5 schedule and a student-status in a time T_T. That signs he likes me to be at home je or doing things yang tak terikat dengan ofis. He's very supportive with me and my works. I know it's funny when I say the reason of me becoming a lecturer sebab nak pakai mic bling2 atau mic balut dengan scarf hebat..haha. L.A.M.E . Takpe, one day..



working somewhere nampak tak rebung kat belakang

akibat tidak 9-5; dah lama tak rasa jam =D


It's almost months that I'm not taking any iced and bicarbonate drinks, takut semput datang hahaha.. and such methodology resulted the scales to shows another 2kgs drop, I'm now 39 kg. Pengambilan nasi pula, mula2 ambil separuh pinggan, lepas tu turun suku pinggan. Taktau nak bangga ke sedih =| Ok la!

pakai mask - macam orang taknak datang beli je?


I've recently received a few comments about my underweight.. Ntah la terkurus pula sekarang ni.

5 mins sewing project : shawl

I left plenty of shawls hanging in my wardrobe, some that I just hate to part with - membazir! biasalah yang tersalah beli kaler kan.. and yup I found this one plain-boring and black shawl. So I came up with the idea to alter - itu pun setelah menelek2 cara jahitan kat kedai =D

I bought this, erm what shall I call this maybe a decorative stud diamonds for RM 14.90

iron on process

Bentuk memang kelakar sikit , yang kat kedai macam ni juga you know ; lipat buat macam ni or two-sided with a liner sewn in the middle

bangga memperagakan shawl 5 minit! senang sangat.. done this while cooking butter prawn lagi =) Menjahit dan memasak - sungguh perempuan!

ok ok nanti kite bagi gambar penuh, (kes tak sempat makeup kat rumah - no make up, hello eyebag! )


Friday, September 4, 2009

OMG I can't believe it myself..

.. that I'm repeating my sister's voice?? huhu

This tender sweet song by khairunie, I mean my sister and his good friend Richardo Tawith.. and I'm repeating this track and was thinking to publish it here, ever since the first time I heard it <-- she emailed us the mp3 hehe.. during YMing..sisters' talk.. =D Anyway, enjoy! lagu ni comel kan

jauh kah perjalanan kita?

When my gama (nenek) left us, I lost in misery. In deep despair I cried so strongly. Pedihnya hati Allah saja yang tahu.. Even talked about how much I missed her made me in teary..semua orang tahu kot masa tu..kesian semua orang kena dengar benda sama hari2 =( . The least thing I did was, lay in bed and hands held high as if I can reach her..macam tu sekali!

My gama's young sister- nenek saudara la kan, maybe she'd seen me in such melancholy and lends me a book, tajuknya 'alam kubur'. Frankly, Oh my Lord I'm going to embarrass myself this time, I never bother to read buku tauhid or buku agama unless those books yang cikgu2 suruh baca sebab nak exam! I finished it and I found the pain relief. Alhamdulillah. Ingat lagi buku tu dah usang sangat, buku kesayangan nenek ni.. I wrapped it. No words can adequately express, I feel like I owe her something..more than 'thank you'.

Since that I began to read such books.

Today I just know that her husband left her forever. Al fatihah.

I'm musing my mind, about this for some time now that, .. beranikah aku untuk 'perjalanan' itu?


Anyway, it's almost 3! I'm writing this and watching solat isyak live from Madinah..selalu live dari Mekah kan..ni Oasis tayang dari Madinah best juga..translation dia macam spanish je ni. Three places yang aku sangat nak pegi adalah Mekah dan sekitarnya, Jurusalem dan Granada untuk Alhambra! haih bestnya..

Kalau cakap Palestine je mesti terbayang yang takut2 kan..No! Hotel-hotel hebat juga..senang kata, the old city with gate to primeval and timeless treasure, with modern facilities. Best! haah berangan memang best.

siapa taktahu bangunan ni..no komen la.. Dome of Rock, btw

the muslim market, nampak tak Dome of Rock belakang sana tu

Masjid Al Aqsa

reminiscing about the Forbidden City

It's 10 minutes past 2 and I'm glued to the tv watching History channel, and I'm also on FB and now blogging..and the list goes to blog hopping pula. Don't I have better things to do, instead? - sleep!

I just wake up about 30 minutes ago, switch on tv and juicing green apples cicah garam..slurpp! Ok now, I'm watching this documentary about China's Forbidden City. Very nice documentary about China imperial palace. The architect was Ruan An.. I must jot down his name here, for me to goggle about him later.. berminat, you know I like history through architecture. hmm dia ni sida, aku tak boleh terima la why they allowed such life-custom.. I think it is such a humiliation to human, a male.

Been here before about last year (note: my very first blog entry), no doubt it is a magnificent palace complex but I never know about its profound record..hmm hebatlah.., what I can say about the palace complex is that, Forbidden City built as a bequest from one dynasty to another, or less literally, from ancient time to modern China. No wonder this place become a must visit in Beijing. And I highly recommend it! The mega construction is scheduled to finish on 2010..teringin nak pegi lagi..Kalaula duit bukan masalah kan =(

Anyway, the construction concept was similar to Pyramid or Taj Mahal (tak berapa yakin about pyramid, I haven't read deeply about it yet but I believe so) But as Taj Mahal, ianya dibina di titik terdekat dengan syurga..supaya those emperors hmm..duduk dekat dengan tuhan mereka..kot..toing!


But, it's good for us to know..just count it as a knowledge ya.. saya suka sejarah! Nak pegi semua tempat! ok Good nite

p/s I've changed my mind about Taylor Swift*. Dah tersuka sebab terpaksa dengar her tracks je kat rumah ni - hubby keeps repeating the same song ..pasrah. I think she looks good in brunette dan rambut kami sama

*faktor rambut brunette dan cardigan pink
