My Raya preparation!

Alhamdulillah, dah 22 hari kita berpuasa kan? Tinggal lagi seminggu je. So far i dah tinggal 2 hari je puasa. Itupun sebab jatuh sakit itu hari.

Rasanya sekarang ni mesti dah ramai yang dah buat preparation untuk Raya. Itu sebab lah puasa2 pun Jalan TAR meriah je. Hehe. Tapi bagi i yang tak balik mana2 raya ni, i ingat nak juga lah pergi Jalan TAR tu masa nak dekat Raya nanti. Orang pun mesti dah tak ramai kan?

So far, Raya preparation i baru sikit je, Baju Raya rasanya dua pasang je lah kot tahun ni. Sepasang i tempah dari Hariz Zakwan, kebaya yang ada ropol2 tu. Entah la apa namanya. Ini first raya selama i dah besar ni berkesempatan dapat pakai baju tempah. Sebelum ni, beli dah siap je. Itupun, i approached Hariz masa first day puasa. Masa tu Hariz dah close tempahan,tapi rezeki i kan, dapat juga buat dengan dia sebab dia willing to open one slot for me. Hehe. Kain and upah semua husband belanja. Cuma yang sepasang lagi maybe i beli pakai duit sendiri.


Design kebaya raya i from Hariz& Team


Okaylah rasanya baju raya dua pasang. Kaftan nikah pun baru pakai sekali, so maybe boleh recycle lagi pergi raya. Baju bertandang pun boleh pakai lagi rasanya. (Berat badan pun dah turun 8kg tu masa puasa ni, tapi lepas raya tak tau lah macam mana) Kasut raya belum beli lagi. Maybe sepasang aje kot sebab dalam kereta campur dalam almari kasut punya banyakk kasut kerja and kasut jalan2. Yang tak pakai lagi pun ada! Actually berkenan dengan satu wedges hitam yang i tgk kat Time Square itu hari kat Esarli. Dahla ada sale. Tapi, wedges hitam dah banyakk sangat dah. Itu sebab tak nak beli dulu.. Mesti fikir dulu. Lagipun husband yang akan belikan, nanti mesti dia cakap " U kan dah banyak warna hitam?" Jadi baiklah pergi survey habis habisan dulu.

Baju Raya untuk husband belum beli lagi. Theme colour Raya tahun ni turquoise. Tak pernah ada baju kaler turquoise lagi. Asyik biru, purple, pink. Last year beli baju Raya husband (dulu tunang) kat Jakel. Pergi masa dah nak dekat2 Raya, sebelum dia balik Miri. Memang murah la. Sebab mark down price kan nak habis kan stock. Tahun ni tak tau lagi nak beli kat mana. Kadang2 baju raya lelaki macam membazir juga nak beli kan? Pakainya setahun sekali je.... Tapi nafsu nak sama theme colour la, tetap ada. It would be nice if we can discard the excitement untuk benda2 yang tak unnecessary ni kan? Huhu.

Kuih raya pula ada dalam a few jenis je. Itupun beli kat orang je. Apa orang panggil? Kuih tunjuk? Itupun i tak sure lah sape yang nak makan sebab tak tau lah sape yang nak datang beraya kat rumah kitorang tu. Tapi tgkla kan macam mana. Kot2 ada rezeki lebih nak buat open house. :)

Untuk rumah pula I just beli sheer curtain and carpet bulu2 untuk living room je. Semalam i baiki la kayu2 yang togel kat living room tu. Dulu kan i pernah buat entry yang ranting2 kayu hiasan tu dah togel sebab i selalu patah2 kan untuk buat itu ini. Boleh baca kat {sini}. Furnitures kat rumah semua masih baru. Nak tukar apa pun tak tahu. Tahun depan, inshaAllah lepas bulan 4 baru masuk rumah baru. Masa tu baru lah i plan nak tukar sofa and a few furnitures (kalau ada budget). Yang lama ni maybe nak tolak kedai second hand atau jual di mudah.my aja.

Itu saja lah kot preparation Raya I. Tahun ni raya kat KL je. Kemungkinan besar, Raya pertama je la ziarah menziarahi sesiapa yang ada kat KL. Raya kedua and Raya ketiga, i ingat nak ajak husband pergi Bukit Tinggi atau Legend Water Homes kat PD.

Tahun ni jugak Raya pertama as a wife. Excited? Excited lah jugak... Pagi2 cium tangan suami. Minta ampun minta maaf. Minta dihalalkan makan dan minum. (Mesti berdrama Raya lah i pagi tu - banyak dosa ni dengan suami.Huhu)

So guys, how's your Raya preparation? Hopefully kita semua akan menyambut Eidulfitri ni dengan penuh rasa syukur di atas segala nikmat dan kurniaan dari Allah Taala...InshaAllah.

Giveaway my blog sempena Raya!

Sempena Raya ni i nak bagi duit raya untuk readers blog i. Haha. Duit Raya celah mana tu? Gurau saje. Bukan duit raya tapi macam hadiah la. In one of my previous entries,  i pernah tanya "Siapa followers blog ni yang ke-146?" and minta my beloved follower tu drop email so that i can post the gift tapi, i tak dapat email. Tiba2, followers blog ni dah jadi 168 orang pula, makanya macam mana i nak trace balik follower yang ke-146 itu?

I pun tak tahu la whether it's me, or blogger ni function dia memang tak membenarkan kita tgk followers tu punya URL blog atau followers tu sendiri yang set to hide the URL. I memang buta blog. (Tu sebab bila blogwalking, mesti jealous tak pasal2 tengok bloggers lain headers diorang lawa2- HAHA) Atau ada siapa2 nak tolong buat header blog yang lawa2 untuk i? So tak perlulah i guna header blog yang sungguh vain di atas. *Oh my goddd la*

Okay, so straight to the point lah ye.

Reason being i nak buat giveaway ni actually i nak minta opinion you all semua (tak kira followers or silent reader pun boleh join), i nak tanya, is this blog berguna untuk you all? maksudnya, macam untuk brides to be, bila baca blog ni, ada tak perkara2 yang you all boleh belajar/information yang you all boleh dapat dari blog ni?Okay, just let me know that!

And one more thing, boleh let me know, apa lagi yang u all nak i blog about?Just anything, about my wedding ke, my life ke, how i meet my husband ke, my wedding preps ke... Just anything. With one condition, benda yang i tak pernah blog about la ye.. :)

Nak i reveal the gift ke? Nanti lah bagitau... Sebelum2 ni pun i ada buat giveaways tapi hadiah mesti rahsia. HAHA.

Contoh boleh baca entry entry berikut :

- Cadangan baju nikah giveaway
- Second giveaway, juga pasal kahwin2 dulu

Okay, to followers/readers yang ada blog- boleh comment kat bawah. Kalau silent reader can email to me. Okay?

The winner akan dipilih berdasarkan, the best topic untuk i blog about. Tapi jangan lah suruh i blog pasal "GDP growth in Malaysia" ke? atau pasal topik2 perbahasan politik ke, hukum2 agama ke, teknik berpantang ke * tak ada kena mengena yang ini. HAHA* Jangan yang berat2 lah... sebab i bukanlah knowledgable mana pun....

Thank you guys...

Updated notes : To be fair the comments will not be published, so that kalau ada dua tiga tajuk sama pun and i think tajuk tu menarik to blog about, i akn choose all to be the winners. :)

Review - My Dais Decorator (AnnieCraft and Rass Deco)

Hello lovelies.

Bila belek2 blog ni baru i sedar yang i tak buat review pasal my dais decorator lagi, kan?

Okay so today, i nak share dengan u all my personal opinions tentang kedua2 dais decorator i. One for Solemnisation and the other one for Reception.

I think some of you guys yang dah tahu, my dais decorator for Solemnisation was AnnieCraft and my Reception Dais was done beautifully by Rass Deco. I hope that this entry boleh jadi reference for any of you yang nak hire the abovementioned vendors or yang still searching for your big day dais decorator, x tau sangat nak ambil siapa, kan? So these two names boleh jadi antara reliable vendors la.

Rass Deco

Okay, i deal dengan Kak La,she's nice, willing to listen to my opinion. Execpt for that she is one super busy lady. You all kena rajin follow up dengan dia. But if i call her, she is willing to layan. Mula2 tu , i agak macam pelik jugak sebab lepas bayar deposit diorang senyap macam tu je, rupa2nya diorang ingat...It's just that kita kena rajin follow up... Dulu mula2 i segan nak call banyak2 kali nak tanya itu ini kan, but actually that's the way this thing works. Vendor yang well known macam ni memang they have such a huge number of  clientele kan? So memang kita sendiri kena ingatkan diorang our progress for the bookings and such sebab diorang memang banyak bookings... But dont worry Kak La ni sangat sporting...

Another one month to my wedding day, i went to Rass Deco's office in Rawang to see her and nak bayar another 50% deposit kan... So masa tu juga i discuss dengan Kak La, I nak pelamin tu macam mana..Warna apa, kerusi jenis apa...  Settle discuss kak La pun dah jot down apa2 yang penting, then i balik rumah. Tapi, Kak La, dia akan call lagi untuk double confirm... So, PR i guess i have no problem la dengan diorang. Semua ok!

Kerja diorang pun  sangat efficient, siapa yang baca review pasal my Reception {here}mesti tahu yang dewan i tu sebelah pagi ada wedding, majlis i malam pukul 8.30, pukul 4 petang nak dekat2 pukul 5 baru Rass Deco datang nak pasang pelamin.... Bayangkan lah betapa cuaknya i masa tu... Huhu... Tapi Alhamdulillah, Rass Deco buat kerja memang superbla.... Efficient, dalam pukul 7 lebih je dah siap semua....

Conclusion, hire lah Rass Deco okay... i x dapat apa2 pun tulis good review pasal diorang ni.... Tapi i recommend berdasarkan my own experience dealing with them.

Oh ye, if you guys want to know, i took the Fresh Flowers package which consist of :

1) Dais
2) Arch
3) Main table deco
4) 6 units Walkways
7) Free Handbouquet

and package masa tahun 2010 tu semua ni hanyalah RM3500.

Kalau sekarang, dont think dapat harga camtu kot... By the way you guys can refer to their website k

 Memang i jatuh chenta sama pelamin ni, simple tapi bagi i nampak sweet and elegan.. bagi i la... mata orang lain tak tahu lah yea. hehe


Nahh.. Terimalah... gambar bajet cun i.. Hahaha. I suka gambar nie sebab nampak vintage gitu.


Annie Craft


Untuk nikah pula, i hire Annie Craft for the dais. The Dais cost me RM750 with chair. Cantik sangat... Kak Annie ni memang sangat kreatif k... Kak Annie and her team datang pasang the dais the night before la... Dia memang cool je buat kerja... Like sangat2... Deal dengan dia pun senang je... Oh and for your info, bantal duduk untuk nikah yang ada beads cantik2 tuh pun i sewa from her je... Lepas tu, handbouquet untuk nikah pun dia bagi free saja... Suka sangat... Ramai cakap handbouquet tu cantik walaupun simple je..

Ni website Annie Craft kalau you all nak contact Kak Annie or nak tengok more portfolios, you guys can click the link.

Pelamin and Handbouquet from Annie Craft


That's all for now lovelies... Hope entry ni will be useful for some brides to be yang still in search for their dais decorator.

My to do list for today!

Haha. Nampak sangat dah tak tau apa nak berbelog,last2 blog pasal to do list je la. Inipun sebab dah sihat sikit selepas 4 hari demam dgn x lalu makan and lemah2 badan.

Sebab kan banyak sgt things to do dalam kepala ni, so senang tulis kat sini je la. Kalau dah buat nanti,i slash2 je la. Senang,kan?

So,here goes my to do list for today :

1. UTF Statistical return (jgn tanya apa nie,ni kerja ofis ni. Bawak balik umah. Hari tu kan demam. Deadline nya hari isnin ni.huhu)
2. Update The Craft Potion facebook with promotion banner and a few past artworks.
3. Send invoice to a few TCP's customer yang dah bayar deposit.
4. Follow up dengan giveaway winners. Jot down their date and update in blog and FB
5. Pay Streamyx - husband
6. Today rasa mcm nk masak. Tapi i makan apa semua tasteless. So if by evening kalau dah rasa mcm ok,perhaps buying groceries la kot.
7. Pick up Oreo Truffles from Puan Butterfly.
8. Hantar baju pergi dobi. (baju kat rumah ni dah out of control,x larat dah nak pakai machine)
9. Iron baju for next week office wear.

Okay those are all that i can remember for now. Kalau dah berjaya buat i should give a pat on my back la.. sebab so far buat to do list tak pernah dapat buat semua pun. Haha

Dugaan during Ramadhan for me.

Hi lovelies,

How is your Ramadhan so far? Hopefully everything goes well and all of you managed to successfully complete the ibadah in these four days.

I am still down with fever and this is already my second day feeling weak, headache, and body ache all over, I had to break fast during office hours last Tuesday because i was attacked with heavy flu and i keep on sneezing in the freezing office!I felt really uncomfortable and have to swallow the 'Clarinase' pill to kill the 'flu attack'.

Alhamdulillah, soon after i took the pill, i felt a bit OK for a few hours but the recovery didnt last long. I started to feel weak and had to sleep for an hour in the office's surau because i just couldnt stand to look at the PC.

And my condition had worsen during Tuesday's night and the fever has not go away until today.

I have been on MC for two days now, and i am feeling really guilty since somebody has to take over my job at the office. But, if i dont get enough rest, im afraid that my condition will become worst and probably will have to take leave for morrree days...

I am grateful to have such a wonderful husband who had helped bring me to the clinic and taking a good care of me in these two days.  He was the one who carry me all around the house to get this and that, he was the one who will 'lap-lap' my body since i cant take a proper bath, and he has done almost everything to make me feel better and healthy again.

Thank you abang, i love you so much.

i know some of you may have this big question mark in your head, Am i carrying a mini me inside my womb? Well let me leave you guys with the big question mark. if it's already time, worry not, i will spill the news here.

But yes or no. Seriously, me too have no idea! haha...

Till then guys .

Happy fasting!

hopefully i will be fit and healthy again to fulfill my ibadah and go to work tomorrow.

MAXI SKIRT!!

Maxi Skirt is sooo in nowadays, kan? I like the style very much. Some people match it with chiffon blouse and they are doing the color blocking thingy.. nampak cantik je kan? (Tapi kenapa i buat macam tah apa2 je, huhu)

I nak tanyalah how do you style the maxi skirt to work? i try cari website yang boleh ajar how to style the maxi skirt to work for petite frame ladies with heavy top, tapi hampa lah... (Heavy top sebab yes, upper part of my body is quite... emm well u know.. genetic kot... haha)

My company tak boleh pakai seluar for ladies, except for hari Jumaat je... We all kena pakai skirt, so normally i akan pakai short skirt with work shirt to work on normal days tapi sebab tak nak terlalu sexy i akan pakai black pantyhose la... Ramai juga yang pakai skirt labuh to office tapi i masih kurang pandai la style kan gaya tu... i need a fashion guru here.

I keep on buying maxi skirt tapi x pernah guna pun... i dont know how to wear,  with what and when to wear... Oh my godd... sekarang i rasa sangat membazir. I am such a cloth hoarder.. So sempena bulan Ramadhan yang mulia ni, i dah x nak pakai short skirt to work... I nak pakai long skirt...So trend yang terkini yang i discover is this maxi skirt la kan?

Ada tak siapa2 bermurah hati nak share dengan i link untuk style the maxi skirt? x kisah la style to work or for casual ke? And kalau boleh link online blogshop yang jual skirt2 ni sekali yea? i nak beli! Hehehe... i know the young designer&wedding planner, Hariz Zakwan ada buat custom made but i dont know whether he is still able to take some more orders for Maxi Skirt or not. huhu :)

source : Google

Cuba tgk celebrities ni style the maxi skirt.. They look oh so gojess kan?!

Yang ni pulak, i google2 terus pergi blog dia... ha.. maxi skirt yang tu i dah ada, baju mcm tu pon ada tapi colour lain.. tapii kan dia slimmm and cantik..tapi i ini, adalah the other way round... boleh ke i pakai macam tu? eh silap boleh ke i pakai jadi macam tu?? huhu

by the way, the blogger's name is MiaSuraya.. and she is so pretty! Like Like!and she was wearing this style to a meeting! okay! im inspired!

Well yeah, nanti nak try pakai and tepek gambar kat sini lah.. pastu disable comment sebab takut kena kutukk... haha... larikkkk!

Psst, eyh korang perasan tak? macam mana banyakkk pun baju kita dalam almari, mesti ada 2, 3 yang kita akan selalu pakai... alih2 yang tu je... pastu kita complain sebab tak banyak baju... Morale of the story is, belilah baju yang comfortable and compatible dengan kita despite the brand ke the style ke kan? haha... i tau lah.. sebab i pon macam tu jugak!

Till then guys... Happy fasting!
