Hippie Gone Mad Giveaway by Cindy Karmoko.

Hello lovelies...


It has been raining all day and night long. I love rainy days, but yeah... This weather has been blocking me from doing anything i want plus i don't like it when i've to run through it, trying to not get wet and then my feet usually get wet since i'm prone to stepping in big muddy puddles. But at the good side of it that they give me a reason to stay at home if i don't have to go anywhere, be alone, stare at the pouring rain and feel the coldness. I find it to be a very relaxing and calming and at the same time creates a fresh and invigorating air.


Since i'm at home without doing anything, except spending some bonding time together with the sisters. Well, i've finally decided to join Hippie Gone Mad Giveaway which is organized by an Indonesian blogger friend of mine named Cindy Karmoko. The giveaway is so excited that i seriously have intention to join for the first time this year. 


So what exactly Hippie Gone Mad Giveaway is about? Generally speaking, Hippie Gone Mad Giveaway is an awesome giveaway for bloggers to join together to grab a Veiled Beanie - DIY via Hippie Gone Mad and a pair of IngriDahl 3D Sunnies that are very highly demanded for younger generation at this very special celebration, Merry Christmas for you yourselves or as a gift for someone else. 


As far as i know, the veiled beanie is credited to German fashion designer, Jil Sander who designed these for her Spring 2012 runway (during Milan Fashion Week). When i first started seeing Cindy Karmoko rocking it out, i think what's not to love about it? In my opinion...


(1) This veiled beanie is cute, unusual and versatile, it's must-have perfect mix of urban streetwear hat, far more suitable for younger generation.

(2) It's quite different with other hats because it would make everyone (including me) look sophisticated but never over-dressed.

(3) It does suit my style (chic, casual and feminine) plus this attention-grabbing is easy to put on and still make a huge impact on my style.


What about the 3D Sunnies? I've always been a fan of sunglasses forever. I'm the kind of person who likes to buy a pair everywhere i go, especially a unique look. For me, this 3D Sunnies has such a cool design which i've rarely met before and it's completely useful and helpful for me, especially when i feel really annoyed with the public 3D Sunnies. By wearing it, I may look and feel fabulous when watching 3D movies in the cinema. So why not?


Here are two things of my favorite fashion stuffs i've been dreaming of recently. Perhaps, growing up in Fashion City makes it a bit more familiar, and it certainly makes it a little more approachable. I've loved fashion and just so you know, it has always been my childhood dream. But i don't take fashion too seriously and often try to have fun with it. It's no wonder i'd loved to join in this giveaway!


Xoxo

What an adorable, chic way to rock a veiled beanie with 3D Sunnies! I love this so much. So, so much.

Being a Grown-Up-Tween-Girl.

Hello lovelies...


The passage of time seems more real to me as the people in my life hit their milestones. It seems there's no remarkable difference between one age and the next. But celebrating the big days of the people i've known all of my or their lives make the difference clearer. I can even remember who we each were at the last milestone and how much we've changed since.


Last December 1st, my beautiful little sister, Abby celebrated her 10th birthday. Like, "woah". Weren't we just kids playing pink retro kitchen set every day (well, almost) our parents had buy for us? Pretending that the wind and rainfall ruined the sand castles at seaside to justify the utter chaos within? Eating cheezels off our pinkie fingers while watching TV?


Of course, at the same time, that feels like ages ago. Because it was, and because so much happens in life between childhood and the moments you reflect it on. For some, the path from youth to adulthood goes exactly as planned, fulfilling dreams every step of the way. For a lot of us, it's rare to end up where we thought we were going. Sometimes that diversion is filled with love and joy, sometimes it's filled with obstacles. But it's the path that teaches us the lesson that shape who we are.


Now Abby is a grown-up-tween-girl as well. Throughout her life, she has been Miss Sporty Girl, Miss Fashion Queen, Little Miss Perfectionist and a ton of others and she has worn different color of make-up even she's not a teen and not yet an adult. *make a surprised face* So what babyhhh?


Life of a tween isn't as easy as you might think. I was one not that long. I think the best things about being a tween is that your mom and dad take you way more seriously plus you get treated like an adult (more maturely) with some of the advantages of being grown up but still don't have as many responsibilities. Frankly speaking, it brings you to explore new things while you're young, and that's so good to be capable of learning at young age things that you like about yourselves!


BUT THE WORST THINGS IS PROBABLY FRIENDSHIP PROBLEMS, MORE DRAMAS AND RUMORS AT SCHOOL, HAVING TO DEAL WITH JEALOUSY (i speak from LOADS OF EXPERIENCE!), AND TWEENS FIRST EXPERIENCE P-U-B-E-R-T-Y! Yeah, it's a horrible, awkward phase to go through, but it's something all tweens go through with grace and lots of spunk.


Now that i'm a couple years out of my tweens, i can look back objectively and remember clearly all those feelings and worries that were on my mind before...

Eid Mubarak 1433H.

Hello lovelies...


I know i haven't posted anything for a while, but for good reason! As always, i'm really excited to finally come back to blog after spending such blissfully long Eid Mubarak school holidays in Kelantan, Malaysia a few months ago. It's hilarious how before school holidays started i was expecting to be able to make blog posts almost everyday, but that just didn't happen. :(


So, while i was in Kelantan i didn't actually go out much. Actually, the only thing i really did was  just join the Kelantanese Bloggers Gathering in the week before Eid which was organized by Ustaz Jiji Yu and attended by he himself, Hafizin Jamil, Syazwan Che Deraman, Ariff, Nik Fizri, Izatil Aqmar, Nuru Ashi A, Love Patzzi (Hazanis), Mastura, Anis Zahira, Yuyu Atiqa, Fifiey Lychee Maration and myself! It was nice to meet them because we got to know closer each other, and we really enjoyed exchanging of each others personal lives and blogging tips!


First of all, let me make it clear that there're so many things that make me feel good and happy making full Eid preparations, i don't even have the patience to list them all. One of my favourite things to do on the eve of Eid, however, is cook the traditional, delicious Eid dishes with my mom and my sisters. Besides, me and my seven family members also make sure that everything in the house is well kept, and as spotless as possible as planned when Eid comes.


Unlike last year, Eid celebration in this year was rather cheerful as my one and only brother and his beautiful wife came back to Kelantan for celebrating Eid here. As usual, some performed the Eid ul Fitr prayers together while the others was busy preparing dishes at home since many guests would be coming. These are some snapshots taken during the first day of Shawwal.


During the first day of Shawwal, i was wearing batik Pink Crepe Modern Kurung. It was pleasant to wear, soft, light and easy on the skin and elegant in its design that i loved as well, and what made even more adorable was this beautifully adorned with abstract digital printed patterns on the apparel (seriously)!


My little sister was giving away angpao lebaran to one of little boy who came to our house after finishing the Eid ul Fitr prayers. There were many kids who actually came, but only he allowed himself to be willingly captured.


These were all dishes straight from the heart and prepared with tasteful frugality early in the morning. -ketupat, rendang ayam, lontong with sambal tumis ikan bilis, chicken and beef satay, nasi impit kuah kacang and fried macaroni. There were also favored side dishes like mixed fruit pudding and swiss roll cake which filled with butter cream! Everyone would have guessed that satay was the most popular dish for the day. 


Additionally, we've had some of the popular and much-loved Indian sweets apart from the traditional Malay dish. -laddo, jalebi, mesoor and half of them i couldn't even remember exactly what were their names! But the only one i prefered to eat was jalebi (red-orange in color). For someone with a sweet tooth like me, it was worth a try and you'll not regret it!


There were Uncle Dharmadass and Aunt Kamala who came freely, willingly from Klang, Selangor to enliven the spirit of Eid at our house! They were both also brought us the Indian sweets that i mentioned earlier. Oh, how sweet it was to receive anything from them both. May Allah SWT always bless them above with peace, love and happiness.


My parents with the only son in the family and he was the older brother and only brother i ever had! Yeah, last year, my brother who got married first, and i think some of you might have known him already as i've introduced him once in my previous blog post!


Tadaaa!!! This might be our first perfect Eid family potrait together with my sister-in-law. Sure, we never missed out on a chance to do such mini potrait session, and this was also an opportunity where we would all be together in one place, doing our best to fix anything that went wrong last time.


P.s. I've noticed that i seem to be the last one left on the earth who wrote the Eid stories! I hope everyone enjoyed the traditional food, visiting friends and relatives and a few little snapshots in the last few months.
