HALLOWEEN OUTFIT | FAIRMONT HOTELS AND RESORTS @ WEST COAST, USA.

Monday, October 19, 2015
Assalamualaikum and hi lovelies.


The end of October is just around the corner. This means there would be millions of people in multiple countries, particularly in the USA and Canada carve the pumpkins into Jack O'Lanterns, don unique outfits and put different eccentric make-ups on their faces, children go door-to-door, set up for trick-or-treaters, college students bound to the downtown for a night of freaky and spooky festive and so on.


Unlike others, Halloween each year amazingly reminisces me over the moment when I must decide what I should wear in order to represent myself into Halloween character, especially during my participation in Best Halloween Outfit Day. Picking out your Halloween outfit is one thing, deciding what you are gonna dress up as on Halloween it is another thing. In this case, you would be triggered with various different feelings and emotions that you need to have little patience to pass by all these things.


Those of you who have been through this before might know how the process of picking out best Halloween outfit goes. What I really could say is, it makes you think for hours (maybe) as you have to choose either to do closet browsing, DIY or store-bought. Even the outfits would take you in just a few hours, but the confusion of picking out the very best ones is like beyond everything. Here, I am lucky enough that I have ability to hone in on many different types of fashion styles ever since I involved in the fashion industry for quite a few years. So when it comes this, I do not think it becomes my major problem. My concept is just wear what comforts you in and most importantly, it must be anything that goes well with any required theme.


So the day when I was being invited by a crew of the one and only world-renowned Fairmont Hotels & Resorts, specifically in the West Coast regarding my take on Halloween outfit, I felt so undeniably excited. MUCH MORE EXCITED!!!!! It is because I did not think their crew would have come across my simple blog that it sparked my utmost excitement. As this is gonna be my first time ever to come up with the topic that is related to Halloween outfit and some other things, I hope everything that I have been bringing up in myself could inspire others who want an idea of the minimal fashion style, but still want to look fashionably stunning. Now, let us go straight to the point!


1. OUTFIT.

Overall, this is what I finally came out with in this year. My whole look is done within twenty minutes only, no more no less. All were Hong Kong store-bought stuffs which are long kept in the wardrobe. :D I put all my efforts and thoughts into something that is all black except for my hair accessory. Because why? It is always interesting to me to know that how familiar black is in this kind of festive fashion style. If the Halloween colour palette you might see today is warm, bright and fun, I mostly tend to go for black instead.            



2. POSE.

I'm not an expert but it is important to strike a pose when you are about to be photographed. For Halloween theme itself, I just think to pose one that mimics of any creature you might think about during Halloween. When I look at this photo, I honestly feel like laughing out loud, but believe in me that you would have definite ideas about whatever scene you are creating alongside the outfit.



3. FACIAL EXPRESSION.

With the right make-up, hairstyle and pose, you have to challenge yourself to bring out interesting facial expressions of the characters you are dressed up as. This could be phenomenal if you do it right and live up the way you feel inside. 



Before I forget, all the photos' backgrounds are solely credited to here, the place where I ever wished to accommodate myself long before I write up this entry. The place not only reminds you of the luxurious accommodations with awe-inspiring views, but it has been host to a number of meetings, events, parties, weddings and personalized special occasions of the century. Its interior and architectural building design are lavish that it is no wonder the place has been choices to many people. This year, I heard the annual freaky and frightening Halloween party would be hosted there too! In conjunction with it, I am very sure there would be a lot of exclusive styles with a little west coast flare that would surely perfect for the night.


And now.....Last but not least!


fast food

KFC Fried Chicken.

Monday, October 12, 2015
Assalamualaikum and hi lovelies.


I might not be wrong that more than half of the world's populations in many asean countries consume rice as it has been a staple food source for thousands of years. Like me and family, rice would always be listed in our daily serving that is served together with other side dishes. Since mama is a great cook who loves cooking, not even a single day we miss out on taking rice to fill in our easily-get-hungry stomachs, unless there is any special celebration that the menu would be a bit special and might be kinda different with our daily menu.


Somehow, I believe there is time when you do not feel like eating rice in a day or more. It happens either because you are bored with rice or your food appetite changes for a little while. I am saying this because I have that feeling sometimes, but not too often. And yeah guys, I am sure you feel the same! When it comes to this situation, you must be thinking to have something you rarely eat (whether because they are not easily available or for whatever reason you have in your mind), something you cannot find the exact ones in your home, even if you try to cook they do not come up with the same result as you buy in the restaurant or anywhere else. 


So there it is... Fast food is what I am m currently talking about! It is a kind of food that people would always love to go for while their metabolism knows no boundaries! It has been the common thing to talk about among Malaysians and everyone all over the world for ages. As far as you might realize, we are encircled by a lot of fastest-growing fast food restaurant chains each year. These chains' sales have grown at a much faster pace than any other restaurant and remarkably shown their growth in the industry by getting high-demands day by day. 


Wonder where to get the fast food? Drive through the nearby towns or cities and you are bound to see so many kinds of fast food chains everywhere. If you feel lazy to go out, just order them direct from your home because some of fast food chains provide home delivery service as well. From McDonald's to KFC, Pizza Hut to Johnny Rockets, Nando's to Subway, Wendy's and many more that I think it would take more time just to list their names down and describe their meals one by one. But the best possible thing you can do all the time is you just name whatever fast food and our countries might have it all. That is just awesome right?


You must have heard the above mentioned fast food chains names earlier and it would be great to hear which have been your favourites since forever? I could say that I am not a loyal consumer to each and every fast food I consume but being a great tester is really me. Every first-time I go for different fast food, I would make sure that they suit my taste buds. Wait... Do not misjudge me, I am not fussy as you think. Hahaha. I just think it is such a waste if you spend some money for something you do not like and what you unsatisfied with. In case you like it, go ahead with it or if otherwise, find another, this is my opinion.

Among many fast food chains that have been established, there is one that I stick with over nineteen years of my life - KFC. For those who are less knowledgeable about this, it is the world's second largest fast food chain after McDonald's. Its original meal is the tastiest fried chicken pieces. Seasoned with its founder, Colonel Sanders's recipe of 11 secret herbs and spices which no one knows, a fact that it likes to remind people of. Not only that, other than chicken meals such as delicious double downs and wraps, it also offers salads, side dishes such as deep-fried french fries, cheesy wedges, creamy coleslaw, yummylicious desserts and last but not least, one of the most favourable drinks, soft drinks

Despite of all meals I consume at KFC, there is one particular meal which is my forever favourite and could be everyone's favourite too - the extra crispy, crunchy fried chicken pieces that you are ever more likely to eat in your lifetime. The crispiness and crunchiness of those fried chicken I could not resist every time I eat it. The chicken meat is so, very tender that could make you buy the ones in large buckets and you just could not get enough of it! Its form, taste, texture and flavour would linger longer and be there in your mind. Even elderly people like it too!


Those KFC meals are not only famous worldwide and something tons of people crave on a daily basis but they might be your selected picks when you are up for birthdays, small gatherings, little feasts or get-togethers with your families and friends. I do not deny that there are a lot of recipes taste exactly the same as KFC original recipes but so far, I have not tried any yet. Just imagine, if you do the homemade ones, you do not have to eat there, go through the drive-thru or take away but you can have that well-known KFC meals right in your home instead! Homemade meals take a bit more time to prepare but they are hundred thousands times tastier if you use the right recipes, slightly cheaper and you could feel you have done something good and worthwile for yourselves and your families. Nonetheless, just in case you would like to have the "original' taste of KFC, forget about the homemade ones and go for it because the taste is undeniably worth it.
