Flashback: One Step Closer 27.02.2010

A quickie post. I know some of you will consider this as cheating, but I've been wanting to blog about so many things but I really haven't had the time to. I've been wanting to share this video for a long time, so I guess I'll do it now before I put it off and forget to do so, again. Also because I'm pressed for time. I'm just taking a quick breather before I continue with my work.

I really love this video because my family members and almost all of my closest friends were there to celebrate the emotional and joyous occasion. I felt really loved. Do forgive my appearance towards the end of the video.. There was a hijab malfunction and no one told me. But all in all, it was a very happy day. Credits also to Beehunt Studios (on facebook). It was their first engagement shoot and I think they did a good job.

Baby Bump, Paris & Cranium

Towards the end of Ramadhan (27th August 2011), I had a get together at Penang Village with my cousins (and uncles and aunties). A few of them couldn't make it though, especially Zara and my other male cousins. Zara was in Kuantan for some last minute work. We all knew how bad she felt for not being able to join us, so we decided to rub it in by sending her pictures enclosing voice notes of everyone telling her exactly what she was missing via our BBM group! hehe.

The twins, Min & Cho as well as my aunt Enda Cho have been very busy recently to prepare and finish their designs for Pu3's fashion show in Paris this September. They left for Paris yesterday, although Cho did not tag along because she is FIVE MONTHS pregnant! We're so happy for her. Her baby bump is now visible and during dinner her baby was kicking her. Anyways, all the best Min & Enda Cho for your fashion show in Paris!

Look Post: Snakes' Teal

After reading a post by Ami Schaheera titled Fashion : Wrist wars, I rediscovered and was reminded of my love for bangles and bracelets. So, to compliment this look I took out and mix-matched a few bracelets and bangles. Coincidentally, I just realized that none of the bracelets that I wore that day were bought. They were all gifts. I didn't go all out, but I thought it was enough. I was already wearing one of my favourite, Miss Selfridges' knotted metallic belt and my studded head-scarf from Arzu and paired it with a grey frill woven cross body bag from Topshop. Oh yeah, both the teal top and grey chiffon skirt are from Poplook.
This is what I wore for the gathering during the last Saturday of the fasting month with some of my crazy-fun-loving cousins

Raya Quickie : Forgive and Forget

Eid Mubarak! Selamat Hari Raya to all of you, maaf zahir dan batin . In the spirit of Eid al-Fitr, if I have offended or hurt any of you in any way, I am truly sorry. Whoever reads this, I hope you'll forgive me for any wrongdoings that I've committed against you.

How many times have we said maaf zahir dan batin (I'm not really sure how to translate it other than to apologize for intentional and unintentional wrong doings). This had me thinking and as I was pondering about this, I had a chat with some of my colleagues and asked a random question to my twitter friends today.

"What if we have forgiven someone but
we just couldn't forget even when
we have tried our hardest to do so?
Does it still count?"
