6th month update...

since i'm in my 6th month alhamdulillah, I've decided to compile a hopefully complete list of things that is needed for the newborn baby base on a few list i went through online, and my sisters personal experience. Hopefully tak tinggal apa-apa...hehehe...hopefully i will update it in my next entry
Baby bump at 5 months, nanti hopefully i will update baby bump picture at 6 months pulak..hehe..inshaAllah....



Yes indeed, that is my bump at 5 months....ramai orang commented that is quite besar..but alhamdulillah baby is normal size, i guess it's my keturunan to have big tummmy, because my sister pun stomach big like me but baby keluar 2.8 kgs alhadmulillah.

weight pulak, i have gained so much...a few days ago i did my 6th month check up, i've gained about 11kgs total...but hari tu, masa 1st trimester i lost 5 kgs, so actually kalau ikut original weight i've only gained 6kgs. but still dalam 8 weeks to gain 6kgs is very fast..

ohh and guess what.....



The funny story is that, during my 4th month and 5th month check up, every time the doc check, the baby is in shy position, and somehow the Dr. could not see the "little birdie".  so he would say, ok, maybe you are having a girl, we will confirm again next month...but me being me, of course i dah tell my family all excited we are having a girl..hehhee....

but finally at our 6th month check up, ohh he was is a beautiful position where we saw the "little birdie" very clearly..hehehe...so the doc said, this time if wrong, doc will give me free labor/delivery...hehhee...but it was pretty clear though...so inshaAllah i hope we have a nice healthy and pleasant baby boy...

as for my pregnancy update...now slowly i cannot sit or stand too long, then my kaki will start bengkak sikit...if jalan-jalan the its ok.... but kalau duduk je lama2 mmg sakit...the other thing is now, cepat sgt i feel panas...its so funny sebab dulu i dont like aircond and sejuk-sejuk

also because my stomach is a bit besar, sleeping pun is getting a bit uncomfortable. i need pillows everywhere...kalau tak my skin feels so stretched and sakit...

i still have my nausea, esp when i drink something wrong. hari tu i wanted to start drinking soya bean, but somehow everytime i minum, i muntah, even after drinking Non-GMO organic soy bean also muntah. plain water pun somehow i still cannot drink. so now i'm just drinking zam zam..alhamdulillah nasib baik musim haji, so very easy to get zam zam...its a bit mahal to buy, but for my baby boy, inshaAllah its all worth it....

so i guess, mmg i'm just one of those mum-to-me yang nausea sambung throughout my pregnancy...my first sister stop at 7 months, and my 2nd sis pulak the whole 9 months pun still have nausea...but i can tell you all one thing, after 4 months the muntah is really not that bad, you just muntah after that can preceed and makan all over again... appetite mmg ada...not like in first trimester, muntah is so teruk that you just cannot eat or drink anything after that...

but other than all the typical small dugaan of pregnancy...i love my baby bump so much...everytime i will ask hubby did my tummy get bigger, i'm just so excited mashaAllah...i know i always pegang-pegang my stomach...hehehe...and my fav part is of course the baby kicking..now the baby kick so much (boys will be boys), I always put the remote control on my tummy, so my anak sedara can see the remote moving when the baby kicks..hehehe...they get so excited mashaAllah...

Emma k chocolates

One of the vendor that i belum mention regarding my wedding is Emma K.

we hired them to do our wedding favors for me and my sisters wedding reception..MashaAllah i can say i was very very happy with their service. Trust me girls, they were very professional. at first I went to their butique at Bangsar village 2 to inquire about the chocolates and quotation. and then they said come back 1 month before our wedding.

so 2 months(because i rasa 1 month last minute sgt) before the wedding, i went to bangsar village 2, tgk2 the kedai dah tutup...OMG we really panicked because i really didn't have plan B. we went home went straight to the website, and called them. and then the Kakak said, ohh we have moved to empire at subang jaya but their main office is still in damansara perdana. so we went to damansara perdana office, choose our design and within 10 mins they gave me a mock up design of the wrapper and the thank you tag that i wanted. yes, believe me when i say they are very professional mashaAllah. and balik showed my parents, they were happy, terus we paid booking fee. 

and true enough as they promised, 1 week before the wedding day, the chocolates dah siap.

now most of you must be worried about price right?? trust me it's not as mahal as everyone think it is.... they charge me RM 3.xx for one chocolate bar. Chocolate is by cadbury, + custom made thank you tag and emma k elegant wrapper design. 

sadly our photographer tak ambil the pictures of the wedding favors :( tsk tsk...and by 3pm all the chocolates dah habis, all the guests yang datang lambat semua tak dapat. we pun miscalculated, we expected 800 guests, but 1200 came (nasib baik the hotel had enough food), alhamdulillah.



The ones we ordered was something similar to this but it was in pink and pale gold ribbon

5 months

Alhamdulillah now dah 5 months already...

firstly i want to congratulate amy, hanie and nadiah...alhamdulillah semua dapat baby girl yang sihat and sgt comel....

ok pregnancy update....ramai orang advice for me to jot down somewhere, because after the baby is born, nanti lupa dah the preganancy experience...so hear goes...

muntah finally stop at 20 weeks...alhamdulillah so far since then tak muntah lagi..but last week i did muntah when i drank air kelapa...hmmm....so i've concluded that no matter what i still have to be carefull, because my body will reject certain things that i eat/drink....

well the best part of my pregnancy happened at week 17, alhamdulillah it was the first time i felt the baby kick...now dah macam everyday routine...when the baby kicks, i feel happy, then i know baby is ok...actually that is one part i miss about muntah2...because when i was nausea, i knew baby was ok..now doc says inshaAllah if the baby kicks then the baby is fine...when tak rasa fetal movement after a few days then i should be worried... InshaAllah i hope nothing will happen to the pregnancy, and May Allah swt gives all of us an easy and pleasant pregnancy.ameen...

also alhamdulillah because i'm feeling better, now can go holiday with hubby..in my first trimester hari tu we went holiday, i couldn't enjoy it because asyik muntah je...

The last 2 weeks, i went to penang 2 kali hehehe..the 2nd time, habibs aunty bawak us makan at teluk tempoyak...hmmm very very yummy...tapi because duduk dalam kereta lama sgt, i got my first edema attack...keluar kereta je, kaki terus bengkak..aiyohhh dah mula dah kaki bengkak2....inshaAllah if all goes well next week pergi langkawi pulak...


oh ya, today i went to fabulous mum, the clearence is ok, but the best part is they are selling BUMBO at a very cheap price RM 105, if with tray RM 125(original price around RM250) so girls anybody that is interested, please go tomorrow because that is the last day of the warehouse clearance.

also lastly now baby bump dah besar sikit dah...baju normal all dah tak boleh pakai, nasib baik i have very kind sisters alhamdulillah, yang gave me all their maternity clothes, so there is no need for me to buy alot...


p/s: after we all survey byk2 peg perego stroller, the cheapest is at "The first few years" at the curve...so surprising, its RM 200 lagi murah from all the online shop...bukan online shops should be cheaper because they don't have to pay rent ke???

hmmm it's time to survey baby stuff....

oh i realise it's been soooo long since my last entry.....hehehe....

well first of all, Alhamdulillah i'm in my 2nd trimester now...

first trimester...hmm was very challenging, somehow I was one of those unlucky ones...my morning sickness was rather bad...actually i was feeling sick, vomiting and nausea all day long...at one time it became so bad, i was sooo dehydrated sampai kena admitt to the hospital for drip....I started muntah from week 6, and sambung sampai week 16...only the last 3 weeks muntah dah reda...so far once a week je muntah...only if i betul2 eat something wrong....

but no surpirse actaully....my whole family from my grandmother to my sisters semua pun went through bad morning sickness, so Alhamdulillah i had a lot of support from my family....

Alhamdulillah now i'm feeling a lot better....so yes, now of course it's time to start surveying for baby things....

the other thing that i want to be thankful for is actually, on baby stuff...i have mashaAllah generous sisters that are willing to share with me so many things, that i can cancel half of the things that i need to prepare for the new born baby nanti ...inshaAllah.....

ok first survey that i would like to share on is baby stroller...for myself, because i have experience taking care of my anak-anak sedara, so my survey is more on my personal experience...

1) the stroller has to be light weight ; yes it's ok if our husbands are around all the time to help us carry the stroller, but in reality of course that is not the case....hehee...my maximum limit is 10kgs..anything heavier that that is a no no....and the weight has to be balance jugak..i have to make sure, when i carry the baby out, the stroller cannot topple, if i have my diaper bag at the handles...yes girls, some stroller ringan sgt sampai it can topple when you carry the baby out , if ada beg sangkut dekat the handle...

2) is has to be able to accommodate from new born to 3/4 years old ; For me it is very important that the stroller boleh recline full sampai baring position...while many assumes that full recline is only for newborn, but i can tell you now even when they are 3 years old, the full recline is useful for when they want to sleep while you are busy shopping or makan..hehehe...a happy sleeping baby/toddler = happy parents to shop with peace of mind...

3) it has to fold, umbrella fold ; the folding is very important so you have a lot of boot space in the car....sometimes me and my sisters all go out together..believe it or not, we will bring 3 strollers with us...nasib baik all the stollers folds very well & slim, so we can fit them comfortably in the car boot....

4) i have to be able to fold the stroller with 1 hand ; this criteria is actually very very tricky......byk stroller umbrella fold, but not many yang can fold with 1 hand...the rest all kena baringkan the stroller on the floor first, then carry it up....while some people don't mind this, but to me this folding method is very very very important....sebab mashaAllah senangnya when it folds with one hand, so you dont have to bongkok your back so much to carry the stroller to masuk the car boot...

5) it has to be a 4 wheeler ; while i  know its a trend now to have a 3 wheeler, but for myself i'm very old school...hehe..i like 4 wheelers..sebab  they fold smaller, and the most important thing, because it has 4 wheels, the lebar of the stroller is smaller then the 3 wheelers...3 wheelers kena lebar, to keep balance to the stroller...u see if the stroller is lebar, it is very hard to maneuver around the shopping malls, and grocery store, wedding halls and esp restaurants..leceh nanti langgar sana-langgar sini, kesian k.......and the most important thing is that, 4 wheelers are cheaper than 3 wheelers....

hehehe...so far, those are my top criteria in buying a stroller...and of course having said all these..i only have 1 brand in mind...heheh...and the winner is



During those years that i jaga babies full time...i manage to guna peg perego, Mclaren, bugaboo and maxi-cosy/quinny combo...my fav. is definitely the peg perego stroller....

here i've uploaded a youtube video, then you will know what i mean by 1 hand folding....




so yes inshaAllah this is the stroller that i want to get...but not now, i nak tunggu beli masa 6 months pregnant nanti inshaAllah sometime in December...hopefully there are some good year end sale so i can buy it with a good bargain....

till my next survey...hehehe....

A special Ramadhan post....

Salam everyone, 




I found this amazing book on Ramadhan written by Um Imtiaz( Mazalina K. Ghouse) distributed by Al-khadeem....I would love to share it here....some of the articles that i find is an absolutely amazing reminder for all of us on preparing for Ramadhan....

1) seek sincere repentance 
first- seek forgiveness from Allah swt and feel regret for all the sins committed.
second- ask the people whom we know to forgive our mistakes and foults.
third- free our hearts from negative attitudes and thoughts towards others...This will help our heart to be at peace and happy.


2) complete missed obligatory(wajib) fasts.
please make sure we have ganti ALL our fasts before Ramadhan comes.


3) seek knowledge on Ramadhan (very very important!!!!)
It is advisable to read books which are related to the rulings on fasting and it's virtues. This will develop better understanding of Ramadhan. Those who are head of family, it is their duty to educate the family about the acts of worship that should be performed during Ramadhan.


4) avoid activites which distracs acts of worship
Ramadhan is only 29-30days, therefore it is wise if we organise our work our work so that it does not distrac us from fulfilling our duties towards Allah swt.

Oh mashaAllah it may be only 4 things, but i can say, its a lot harder to do...I would like to share one of my past experience during Ramadhan.

 a few  years ago, before Ramadhan started, I went for a talk , to preparing for Ramdhan...And the scholar mashaAllah gave a detail explanation on ganjaran and dosa during Ramadhan....once of the things he mentioned was that some poeple yang puasa in ramadhan, mmg tak dapat pahala langsung, hanya sekadar haus and lapar sepanjang hari...base on the hadith sahih below....


Hadith - Al-Tirmidhi #1989, Narrated AbuHurayrah [Darimi transmitted it.]
Allah's Messenger  said, "Many a one who fasts obtains nothing from his fasting but thirst, and many a one who prays during the night obtains nothing from his night prayers but wakefulness."

Here are 8 very important things to do , to make Allah swt accept our puasa, inshaAllah for those that practise this will recieve the full reward of ramadhan...

1)Niat (intention): Remind yourself again and again that you are fasting in obedience to Allah. Be sincere in your intention. You want Allah to accept your fasting. The Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) said:

“Whosoever fasts in Ramadan with faith and seeking Allah’s reward, all his past sins are forgiven.”(Reported by Al-Bukhari)
2.Sunnah: Observe the sunnah in fasting. Take the sahur meal a little before dawn and end your fast at sunset. Observe all the rules of fasting. It is very important to fast according to the example of our Prophet Muhammad SAW.

3.
Wara`(Avoiding everything haram(forbidden) or makruh (disliked): Be conscious to have halal(lawful) food,halal income, halal relations. Avoid watching bad TV programs, videos, movies, etc. always but especially during this month. Keep your body and mind very clean. Avoid wasting your time in useless things and pursuits.

4.Qur’an: Spend more time with the Qur’an. Read Qur’an every day. Try to finish at least one time the whole Qur’an during this month in your own personal reading. Read some hadiths and the books of 
seerah(the Prophet’s biography).

5.
Salat, du`a’ and dhikr of Allah: Pray on time and observe all Prayers. Do not ignore the Tarawih Prayers. Perform more supererogatory Prayers. Do as much worship as you can. Make more dhikr (remembrance of Allah) and du`a’(supplication) for yourself and for others. Repent and ask Allah for forgiveness as much as you can. This is the best time for devotion and seeking Allah’s forgiveness. Seek Laylat Al-Qadr (the Night of Power) by special devotion during the last ten nights of this month.

6.
Zakah, sadaqahand generosity: Be very charitable and generous. Give more and more to help the poor and needy and to help good social and community projects. Also be good to your friends and neighbors. Let your non-Muslim neighbors and co-workers know that this is your blessed and sacred time.

7.
Husn As-Suluk(good relations with others): Try to be extra kind and courteous during this month. Forget your quarrels and disputes. Reconcile and forgive. Do not get involved in backbiting, lying, cheating, and anything that is wrong. Be very good to Muslims and to all human beings.

8.
Tafakkur(contemplation): Think, reflect, and plan to improve the moral and spiritual condition of your own self and your family. Think about any wrong things and sins you may have been doing and decide to correct yourself. Think about any deficiencies you have in your Islamic observances, and plan to change yourself. Think what you can do for the Ummah and for humanity to make this world a better place for everyone.


"O you who believe, fasting has been prescribed for you as it has been prescribed for those before you, so that you may attain taqwa." 

[Noble Quran 2:183]

on makeup artist...

salam everyone,

I know i haven't been the best at updating my blog,  alhamdulillah i just recovered from the worst food poisoning  I have ever gotten....tersuk sgt, sampai i had fever....

anyway also it donesn't help that my laptop still rosak, heish i haven't had the time to reformat my PC...

ok todays topic is on makeup artist...( sadly i have not receive any official pictures, so all pictures will only be uploaded once i dah dapat the gambar, i will update this post)

during our functions, we manage to work with 4 makeup artist, which is Sue cantik, Lova, Ayang kamel and A...ok...

now lets start with the good news,

MY untimate favourite makeup is def by faarrrr by LOVA...mmg me and my sis paling suka makeup by lova...she has this natural way of doing our face, just as how i want my makeup to be....so natural yet beautiful..lova's foundation is golden, so my skin macam had a glow, the whole day tak crack and the best part, it tak nampak putih on digital camera..i love it sooooo much, very simple but beautiful mashaAllah....so yes if anybody asks which makeup i love most, it has to be LOVA...i quote what habib said " from now on only Lova can makeup your face, no one else"..

sue cantik, was very nice, but my biggest issue is because sue is a man, and the foundation is tebal sikit, so my foundation cracked during the function, my face looked dry..tapi in the picture and video, mmg tak nampak...so i still love the makeup....

ok as for ayang and kak A....

ayang, mashaAllah is the nicest makeup artist among all...so lembut, while we were getting ready(imagine there was 4 orang kot tgh makeup sekali) ayang was very sweet to  let us pinjam his eyeliner....ohh he is so baik....tapi is not that I didn't like ayangs makeup,  i just feel that, it didn't suit our kind of face itu je...but i have to say, ayang is very very baik...

lastly ..kak A( i cannot name her sbb this is a bad review) was friendly, we were talking quite byk masa she buat makeup...so i explained to kak A, i only like 1 type of makeup...heavy eyes but nude lipstick and blusher...but sadly, she didn't give me that type of makeup..when i saw myself at the miror, my lipstick sgt merah, and blusher sgt merah..and when i said, terang sgt, she was a bit upset, and cakap, "tak dik nanti kat camera nampak natural"...you see itu yang buat a marah, sebab sue cantik and lova, did a very natural nude look, and takde pun nampak pudar on camera

sampai I open my pictures, to show how sue and lova mekup my face...stress sgt masa ni..lepas tu, i cakap nak light lagi colour dia....she pun sampai 3 kali tukar colour and sindir me and said, kalau colour macam ni, macam tak pakai lipstick and warna lagi pudar dari my own lips...but for me, that is what I want...

But masa i saw gmabr from the pictures he took,  daniel zain tunjuk sikit, the makeup ok masa malam tu, tapi gambar siang semua mmg nampak my blusher and lipstick terang....and my foundation colour macam grey sikit(takda glow). I'm also upset because i bayar RM 750 (lagi mahal dari lova and ayang kamel), and i saw some product makeup yang murah.....i feel cheated esp on the foundation that is why my foundation looks grey...i'm very particular about cheap makeup, sebab i have sensitive skin...cheap makeup product uses cheap chemicals...but the best part is after everything she sms me to minta maaf and said hoped i liked the makeup...walaupun ada problem sikit, all in all it was ok....it was my mistake jugak, I pun nak tukar her trademark style, of course she pun tak happy...

for lova and sue cantik, mmg i have seen bride lain and i suka the style...tapi the other 2 makeup artist tu, mmg i tak minat sgt, esp the colour of the foundation..I am very particular with the colour of the foundation....i paling tak suka when the foundation turns grey or white...tak nampak seri....
.
My advice to everyone, find a makeup artist yang u suka, from what you  see at other brides...


p/s: what is cantik and beautiful for me, might be too simple or tak cantik for others...please take note that this is a personal review of my personal taste...

henna for reception



I shall start my first entry with our lovely henna....oh this time henna was amazing, and i was VERY happy with the end results...if I had to recommend , i would def say this time henna is a lot better than my nikah hari tu...

amrina dear, thank you sooo much....btw, all this pictures were taken by amrina's hubby...so credits to him...hehehe...

 hubby helping me choose a design
amrina, getting ready the cone...
henna in the making
i did matching ones for my feet
the final results...its soooo kemas and fine kan...ohh i love it soo much
For my sister she choose something more grand of course, because this is her nikah...very very unique the design...mashaAllah...
matching set on the kaki...macam tak percaya kan, how neat it is...

trust me i have done henna in a loooot of places..this is one of the paling kemas i have ever gotten...

for my tandang amrina came over to the house again to top up, amrina wanted to come hari khamis, but on Thursday my henna was still terang and clear..so on Friday tu, i scrubbed the henna from my hand from reception on my side and last minute mintak tolong if she can come Saturday morning... but this time we had to use instant henna...the sayang part is because it was intant henna, it kembang on my skin, so it didn't look fine...but that was not amrina's fault, it was the henna yang kembang..

bottom line is, if in the future anybody asks me about henna...amrina, she is the girl to go to...inshaAllah...

Alright so total we paid for  6 days is RM 3k =THB 30k. It can be concluded that roughly is RM 500 for each day, and the best price includes everything in this package.

I had 2 options, between airasia package and this one, I picked this because, they had included extra spa and 2 candle light dinner at the same price air asia 5 nights package.

Also i secretly hoped, if I informed the Hotel that we were on our honeymoon, that they would upgrade us...Alhamdulillah which they did. Hotels will only upgrade you (if they want to) if you book with them directly, bookings done via travel agent, matta fair and website, usually they don't give that personal touch...

anyway all the best, for those interested with Krabi honeymoon...because being an Island lover, i have to say, I fully recommend this holiday.

 p/s: The best part of our Krabi honeymoon is Phi Phi island trip...Kalau pergi Krabi, tak pergi Phi Phi is such a waste. Snorkeling here is one of the most beautiful places i've ever seen, even if I want to compare if it with my previous experience snorkeling at Redang, Tioman, Perhentian and Sabah.

June & July updates


I have friends complaining, kenapa i don't upload my blog as often as i use to...

well  
no1)  i have finish uploading entries on my nikah..if anybody wants me to upload any specific entry regarding my nikah...do email me at sabsabby22@gmail.com

no 2) MOST IMPORTANT , in July, ialah bulan yang paling kami busy because we are planning for 4 major functions...

- nikah my sis
- our joined reception
- tandang on habibs side
- tandang on my sisters future hubby(inshaAllah)'s side... 

but its going to be so exciting...

some has said, wah you must love weddings so much, to have a blog, and write about it...well to tell you the truth, its not just weddings..i love any events that requires planning.. and we(+ my family) love planning from family holidays to family gatherings to raya, anniversaries and birthdays......hehhee...its not just planning a wedding that gives me that rush..is planning anything, that involves decorations + theme...

i love decorations ALOT...to me flowers are absolutely beautiful...esp fresh flowers...Allah swt gave us flowers for us to decorate, and i will make full use of it..ehehehe....and you know the best part about flowers, we MUST use it to decorate, because if we just leave it on the pokok, it will still die...

but the funniest part is, i hate receiving flowers as a gift...i don't allow my hubby to buy me a bouquet of flowers to give me...because its just soo mahal and most of the time its tak cantik, because to me flowers wrap in plastic like that mmg tak cantik, i can do better myself.....if he wants to give me flowers, either from cameron, floristika or petaling street..hehehe...and it must be loose flowers, coz the best part is to arrange it sendiri...

speaking of flowers, hari tu, i tolong one of my good friend for her hantaran...we went to floristika together to buy flowers, of course, the bride choose the flowers herself..like me she loves eustoma and carnations..i love these 2 flowers..mmg sgt cantik...i also helped buat the handbouquet.very uniqe yellow flowers..of course, choosen by the bride herself..hehhee...tapi i cannot find any picture of it...hmm must ask from her...

i did it at the last minute, 1 day before nikah baru nak sibuk arrange, padahal be bought the flowers 3 days before the nikah..hehhee..me the procrastinator...

wedding corsages

Salam,

Just wanted to share our idea for the corsages that we made during my nikah...we decided to add a little sense of humor, since yg datang is mostly family and my friends...so it was a very relaxed function for my parents...

being in a large family alhamdulillah, many gets confused with who is who.. esp us sisters, because some say we all look similar..hehee..

2 of my sisters, created this 2 days before my wedding...hehehe..i was a little upset because it was done at the very last minute, but alhamdulllah my sisters, they never disappoint...










well as for my update with the reception next week..its has been quite crazy...we just found out yesterday the hall we are doing it in, us undergoing a major renovation at the entrance..urgh..sedih nya..and they never informed us...so now, the hall is going to have a very messy and ugly entrance...all the hall people can do is, on the wedding day, they will clear a path for the guests to masuk...how uncomfortable...

mum says, we must be positive...at every wedding of course things will go wrong..and what will change it is our attitude towards it....I'm just worried, if the guests can't find the way in..or if they feel very uncomfortable because of the construction around...

other than that, alhamdulillah everything is ok...at first i thought having a reception after 4 months is like whatever lah...i've already had my wedding......but just 10 days before, now i feel that my excitement is building..hehehe...mashaAllah...i'm so excited being a bride all ever again (to the same guy)..hehehe...oh I'm so excited....

just make doa all the 4 functions goes pleasantly...ameen ya Rabbal A'lameen...

B.E.A.U.T.Y

its 2.45am now..i'm up ..yes because of nothing else but hubby wants to watch world cup...hehehe...

today i want to share on share on hair....i've gotten a few questions on where i cut my hair and stuff, and thought why not i upload an entry on it...

ok for  my hair, right now I only trust very specific places and people..hehhe...

I'm one who is very very particular with my hair..since a very young age, i always take care of my hair..because good beautiful hair can make one look really good...

disclaimer: this entry is only dedicatedf for women who wants to look beautiful for their husband and family(mahrams only)






For hair salon, my favorite right now is yes, Organic Hair Professional...in One utama, 1st floor, new wing...


why i go here??...well the biggest plus point its because all the products are organic, meaning they have less harmfull materials...since the last 10 years, my family has been practicing a healthier lifestyle, and one of the things we changed is our cosmetic/beauty product...

while i was doing my degree, i learn so many things on chemicals, and i can tell you all right now girls, there are too many unhealthy chemicals in our daily beauty products...

of course, organic product does not mean its 100% safe..but at least, they cut down the use of the main dangerous chemicals...and the shampoo smells great...so fruity...i love it...

a lot of people make fun of our lifestyle, but i truly believe in what we do...and since I've been using the proper hair care,mashaAllah, my hair & esp my scalp is feels soo much healthier..alhamdulillah...

the 2nd reason why i love going here is because, they have a private room..so yes, girls out there yang pakai tudung, they have a room here, yang they wont allow any men to enter, unless you allow them too..and mashaAllah i can say, they really respect our muslim believe...yes, of course ada extra charges, they charge extra 10%..so kalau haircut is RM 60 +10% total you have to pay is RM 66....

my fav hairstylist here is jesse...honestly i went first in early 2009..and i really wasn't that happy with jesse's cut...tapi a few months back, when i cut my hair, mashaAllah she has improved so much...now i looove it..hehehe....jesse is the only female hairstylist there...

for Man, i strongly suggest jimmy...but i have to say i'm biased, because hubby only goes to jimmy..so i havent really gotten to know any other male stylist..but jimmy has amazing memory, everytime we come , he remembers us...even though there was this one time, we din't go there for more than 6 months...and he still ingat...

on hair perming....

I would of course say organics is a better salon to go, but the price for organic perm is very mahal..but one of my friend did it..and my goodness its the most natural perm i've seen..and absolutely no chemical smell...imagine, the perming chemical smells fruity...and her hair didn't become dry at all..but the price..rougly around RM 400...but if you have the budget, please go here..its just so cantik...

for myself, clearly, RM 400 is too much...so i opted for a different perm..while many likes normail perm, i find that the curls are so unnatural looking, everyone will know, its a perm..esp those yg buat half the kepala only...

i suggest, go to thomas & guys and do the SPA PERM.....i'm not so sure the difference between spa perm and digital perm...but according to a hairstylist, the difference is on the  heating method...i have no idea actually..so i shall not elaborate...

i went to thomas and guys in shah alam Sacc mall..they are having a promotion spa perm for RM 198nett(all hair length)...the best hairstylist for perming is christine (sarawakian). She did the perm with full passion, and was so very friendly during the whole time....


this is a sample of how the spa perm curls is...spa perm is very loose, so it mainly big curls....which i love most...

and the best part about Thomas and Guys in Sacc mall..they too have a private VIP room...the cost is slightly more though sebab the VIP room here is very big comparing to hair organics is One utama......


its 3.20 am now..hmm really sleepy...

my current project......


I wanted to share, on what i've been up to lately...

we have 19 more days to the reception..meaning my sister has only 18 more days inshaAllah to her nikah..hehehe..

a lot of people asks on how i feel right now  excited tak?..i can say i'm A WHOLE load more relax now... compared when it was 19 days to my nikah(masa ni macam dah crazy)..hehhee....sebab our nikah pun dah lepas Alhamdulillah....

for my reception, i didn't want it to be like my nikah...i wanted it to be more meaning full than anything..so a lot of things this time,  I decided to do it myself...

my biggest project is...my wedding baju...remember this post

i gave a teaser on my outfits..but now my nikah baju dah jadi for my reception...(dah almost 4 bulan nikah, i feel like i'm a pengantin basi already) so my main intention is to give my sister full limelight..hehehe....

ok my baju lace putih tu, lace, came empty..sebab i wanted the designer to tambahkan the beads for me cantik2....but like i said, i wanted a more personal feel, so i decided to do it myself...



yup, myself, and yes FYI, i have No experience in beadings at all..memang tak pernah buat..

so far, its been 2 months dah sabby penat menjahit beads sini, menjahit beads sana..still tak habis2 lagi...everytime, buat, kalau salah i have to redo everything...

now its 90% siap, alhamdulllah...results...hmmm... well, all i can say is, its looks homemade...but the satisfaction i have, knowning that i did it myself, i think that is priceless..and now, this while lace baju has become my new favorite wedding attire......

The best caterer....


It been more than 3 days now, since my cousins passing....We are no longer allowed to mourn...


Hadith - Bukhari 2:369, Narrated Muhammad bin Sirin 
One of the sons of Um 'Atiyya died, and when it was the third day she asked for a yellow perfume and put it over her body, and said, "We were forbidden to mourn for more than three days except for our husbands."

Hadith - Bukhari 7:254, Narrated Um 'Atiyya  
We were forbidden to mourn for more than three days for a dead person, except for a husband, for whom a wife should mourn for four months and ten days (while in the mourning period) ......

Let's talk about my caterer during my wedding day....We we first introduce to them during a wedding of a family friend...oh Subhanallah...the food was soo sedap...My parents came back to the wedding just so they can eat the food again...I stayed sampai habis, so that we can tapau food home...

This was about 3 years ago.....and i had told myself, ok this is the caterer i want for my wedding...Sajian D Hidang....


Alhamdulillah, i got them, food was sedap...they were clean..and everything was as they promised...they were so easy to work with mashaAllah...i fully recommended...



the blueberry cheese tart, was one of my fav..and I'm so glad, all the food we ordered habis...we only had to bring back home, ada sikit samosa and popiah...the rest alhamdulillah habis...
