big day for my babycakes.

i know i haven't update my blog in a month plus, but a lot has been happening, so i couldn't actually find the time to do so. However, I dedicate this post for my beautiful good friend, Shura Shukor.

 
I suppose this occasion is a good excuse for me to blog about. One of my bestfriends, formerly Miss, Shura Shukor, just got hitched by his prince charming Zamir Yahya. I was there when their relationship started, and saw how the relationship grew. I love these two people very much, and safe to say, they were made for each other. Alhamdullilah.

We were trying to fix the "manisan hantaran". Thanks ira, shunit and phoebe!

Love u Shuzam, semoga bahagia ke anak cucu.

did you know?

March used to be the first month of the year, until Julius Ceaser reformed the calendar and it became the third month of the year.

Just a little fun fact.

Hi everyone sorry for being away, i was on a "business trip" last week, and since i came back i have been busy with work (finally!) and sorting my @$%# out..

Please watch out for my apparel line (collaboration with my good friend, Miss Athong), but still working on it. Never thought  thinking of a name for a company can be very stressful, my face is like a pimple plant now lol.

Cant wait to share it with you guys!!

Go Malaysia!!

365 things to do in Kuala Lumpur: No. 6, Shopping at Telawi Bangsar: Featuring NEVER FOLLOW SUIT.

For those of you who live in Kuala Lumpur and Klang Valley, Telawi Street Bangsar Shopping is not an unfamiliar shopping spot for girls (and boys). The area offers several independent brands/ boutiques and if you want to avoid the normal Topshop and Zara look,  then Bangsar is the way to go. Although i have to warn you, there will be a lot of climbing stairs to do... but on the bright side u might lose a few calories before trying on clothes, so a win-win situation. lol.

Number 6 for me is not all about going shopping at Bangsar Telawi, but i really want to share my experience at a shop that is potentially going to be my new favourite store, "Never Follow Suit". Kudos to Elizah Adam for introducing me to this awesome place.

Location: Never Follow Suit, Bangsar
$$$ Spent: I didn't actually spend today, but i reserved 2 items as they don't accept cards just yet.


Never Follow Suit is founded by Victor Goh, Calvin Cheong, David Shaw & Joe Chia.


I had the opportunity to meet one of the designer himself, Joe Chia, and i had a brief yet, informative chat with him about the store and general things about fashion retail. Never Follow Suit is only on their forth month since they opened the store.








At the moment their garments are themed into three sections: Coloured garments, Vintage & Pre-Loved, and achromatic tones.





Their Colored Garments




Never Follow Suit Vintage Garments




Achromatic Collection.


My favourite between the 3 was the Achromatic Collection, because from previous experience staying in Melbourne, i have always love to wear basic black, grey and white pieces. They reminded me of one of my favourite brands from Melbourne, Alpha 60. And what i love about Never Follow Suit is that you get a good designer piece, made of great fabric, and they're made locally so we know they are quality controlled. Their aim is to make designer apparel becomes something affordable for medium-to-high demographic. As a person who appreciate the quality of textiles, i am impressed with the fabrications that they used, especially the light cotton blends and viscose.  I didn't pay enough attention to the price but average pricing that i saw was approximately RM79 for tops, RM100ish for dresses, and RM299 for a jacket, all depending on the design and fabrications. Its too bad i didn't take enough pictures of their garments, but if u have the time, check out the store :).

365 things to do in Kuala Lumpur: No. 5, Mollydooker's Plaza Damansara, Damansara Height

Hi everyone, I am back with my 365 KL activities project. Hihi, i am only on my number 5, boy i have a long way to go. The past 2 weeks have been raya activities for me, so nothing much to include in this list. However, I just have to post about this place to give u guys an idea of where you can get good, quality coffee. And of course to give support to this 2-day-old coffee heaven.. Welcome to the new age of Malaysian's Warong Kopi, Mollydooker's.



Place: Mollydooker's, Plaza Damansara opposite Chef & Brew, Damansara Height
Amount $$$ Spent: RM8 (iced latte), RM 5 (Soft Cookie With Chunky Milk Choc Chip).But they have a promotion at the moment, so the bill came down to RM12.


Frankly I am not a coffee person, but in the spirit of "lepaking" in a coffee bar, i gave coffee a chance by trying their iced latte, and i can say that i'd definitely will have the same drink again. And if u are an ex-overseas student, an x-pat, or simply a person who appreciates non-commercial coffees like starbucks and coffee beans, then this is a place to go as they use fresh beans and not to forget, a special touch of "coffee art".

Mollydooker's opens from 8am till 8pm from Monday- Friday, and on occasional weekends. I recommend for those of u who are unemployed like me to avoid the "wee" hours and visit them between 3pm to 6pm if wanna have a more chill out session and sit around to enjoy their coffee, otherwise they are quite busy before and after these hours but hey, there's always the option of taking-away...

Btw i ended up spending two and half hours at the coffee shop...











Iced latte + Soft Cookie










Italian Sodas (flavoured with peach, strawberry and one more i cant remember) for non-coffee drinkers.

Congrats guys on the amazing coffee bar. Mak Cik, Pak Cik, datuk, nenek, and young peeps will love the place i reckon. So let's go Jolly at Molly!

Note.to.myself. I NEED A BETTER CAMERA THAN MY BLACKBERRY. lol.

i just want to..

i. have a stable job
ii. build my own family
iii. be a good person
iv. be happy.

So far, none of the checklist seems to be possible. Its either i am not ready, or I have not grow up. I wish I am a much simpler person, somehow i always choose the much complicated path. Ya Allah, i am thankful for my life, and I thank u for these tests, I will try and face everything in a positive way.
