How i style up the snood shawl

I just introduced myself to the snood shawl. Its a shawl sewn at the end to make a one loop. (and yes it might look kinda like darth vader's hood). I've tried to wear them to work and i like it...esp the cotton snood.


This is cotton snood in mustard from de veil.


Here i'd like to share how i do it...this is one of the way i wear the snood.


First wear the neck covering inner. This is alexa inner from sugarscarf (very comfortable...i love it!!)


Then put on the snood. Adjust on your head and shoulder.


Then pull one side crossing over to the other shoulder.


I adjust the lenght that i want.


Then i put a pin on both shoulder.


Taraa and i'm done. This is cotton snood in dusty pink from de veil. U can find them in facebook.

Friends for ever

They were my roomates, my studiomates, my sisters, my friend for life. We have been together for 6 years, and still tll now,till today.

We are far from each other. I am here and the other are somewhere else in the city.

I thank the net,like seriously. And today, i thank whatsapp!! We are sticking like glue to each other! We talked to each other, nag,tell stories, and send off emosional vibes.

And today!! We even shop thru the phone!!!

I really hope the glue that bind us all wont wear off. Thru thick and thin they are the best people in my life. I love you

Foursquare

My foursquare is boring. I am at the same place every each other day

Shud be exploring more of the world???

Breastfeeding power

A month ago, me and mamashmontel had a bad day in KLCC.. bad like-kena halau with mak guard-because we wanna pump in the surau. Funny rite?? It was zohor i think and the surau was quite empty. Its a working day.

Later we learnt that there were others with such experience in KLCC..been chased away due to breastfeeding. So news spread. With the power of the net i guess, i wonder how many thousands knew this in one nite (boo you KLCC)

Guess what! Women in malaysia, mothers to be specific are very powerful in malaysia!! They've organize a protest which convey a message that nursing in public is not wrong,that there are proper ways they can cover up and its the baby right to be fed there and then.

So today,many turn up for this -they called it flash mob - to nurse in public-all together at one time!! This is so cool rite!! Even those who has wean off were there to support!! I am so proud of these ladies!!

By the way..its worlds breastfeeding week. Happy breadtfeeding mothers!! You've done a great job who no one else could do for your child..so special,both you and your baby. Husbands dearie...please support your wife to breastfeed your child ok

Gulai tempoyak


It is my favorite dish. My dad's best dish-he made superbbbb patin masak tempoyak (my dad was such a patin guy, even won GP joran by fishing the greatest patin)

But this is the first time i made this dish-which has become my husbands favorite too- as before this, there's no way i could find good patin here and i've got no tempoyak




Suddenly ada rezeki from kak aya who gave durians for us. So i made my own tempoyak,and find patin-ada la even i know its not the best. So here is how i made them

Bahan:
Bawang merah-about 5-6, jangan banyak sangat nanti berbuih
Bawang putih-3 ulas je
Kunyit hidup- serbuk pun boleh
Asam keping
Cili merah or cili padi
Tempoyak of course
Fish- u can use patin,baung or senangin
Daun kesum

Blend bawang merah, bawang putih and cili. Letak dalam periuk and pour water in. Put on stove and heat on. Letak serbuk kunyit sket for color. Kalau guna kunyit hidup blend sekali dengan cili tadi. Letak asam keping. Put in the fish. Adjust air ikut nak banyak mana kuah. Then put in tempoyak ikut citarasa. Kalau nak pekat put more tempoyak. Then put daun kesum in dir the aroma. Tu je. Senang kan?

Reminder. Asam keping tu depends on your tempoyak. Kalau tempoyak yg dah masak and masam,maybe tak perlu pun asam keping ni. Kalau tak, kena la bubuh for masamness.

This is the way my father taught me. There is no right n wrong i think,just the matter of taste and preferrence.

There you go!! Here is my pot of gulai tempoyak!!

Ramadhan ya mubarak


Its ramadhan again...mashallah.. The holy month is here again,our favorite month. Alhamdulillah we are given chance to meet again!

Its totally a different year for me. It is the first time fasting while
Breastfeeding!!

This year its kinda different. Sebab my dear husband is not eating rice for berbuka. So most that i cook is for sahur. There's 2 kida to care of this year,so i made a plan to make things easy. I cook earlier,as in advance. I cooked dishes for 2 or 3 portion and freeze them. So for some days u wont be that busy and can rest a bit

Well...we'll see how it goes for the first week.

Selamat berpuasa everybody. Semoga dapat beribadah dengan penuh taqwa
