Smocking Couture

Think its too late to shop for that breathtakingly intricate smocking couture dress for your baby princess? Check this out then. I know the designer personally, and I can assure you that she's not only great at smocking, but a wonderful artist and a great mom to one of my bestfriends, Han.

Selamat Berpuasa

One last word from me for the day...Sempena berpuasa ni...jangan bukak mulut masa mandi, jangan 'ter'telan air masa berwudhu', don't think naughty thoughts (huhu), and stop checking out that yummy guy with the cute ass (woohoo) You may do these however in 2 weeks time :p

Selamat Berpuasa loved ones...

Janda Baik

What more can you ask? Trickling cool water all over you, you live in a Kampung-style stilt house, beside the clear clean river, no traffic jams, fresh air, free local fruits...Is this heaven, you may ask? Well, maybe, but you don't have to wait that long to experience what I experienced at Zaini Guesthouse in Janda Baik. My huge family (including the aunts, cousins, the works) had a weekend getaway, a week after Bandung, and we had a lovely time there...The hosts were a newly-wed couple; Fred Suria (she's the beautiful French I was telling you about) and Zaini and a troop of his family as cooks (the best Kampung cooked food, using fresh ingredients from the surrounding area!) We're planning our next trip already..If you're into this kind of adventure (separate baths; but very clean and beautiful, bathing in the stream for countless hours, minimal electricity, cool air without fans and air-conditioning) jomm!

My verandah

The view from my window

Ada gaya rappers tak? huhu...Nita at hard work...feeding us all durian from the orchard

BBQ at nite...had lamb, fish, chicken with the best marinade I've ever tasted; secret recipe definitely

My stilt home from the river...Lawa kan?

My sisters

Olyn Missing?

Yup, she's been missing for a while...OKla...for a very long time...been up to the nose with work work and work! There shouldn't be any sort of excuses, she knows, but the little time she has, especially during Ramadhan, has made it impossible for her to not just lie back and read her new books...Olyn's reading...Eat Pray Love and Tuesdays with Morrie...2 books? Yeah...that's how she is...Too excited to read one book after another...So, peeps, bear with her OK, coz you know how crazy she is about writing (Oh yeah, by the way, when she's not typing up into her dearest blog, she's updating her Little Black Book) OKla..more stories after this..Promise!
