Weekend Happenings

I had a weird dream few daysssss ago (note the 's'-es). About having 5 siblings - the four of us, plus a baby sister. She was like a few months old. One day she died. I don't remember the rest but I was the one who cried paling teruk. And then suddenly I was awake bcoz I felt hot tears streaming down my cheeks sampai basah bantal. Only then I realized I was dreaming. And crying. Phew.. The dream was vivid, it felt so real. Tapi org kata mimpi tu slalunya maksud dia bertentangan. I dunno...

Later on in the afternoon, I received a phone call from my sis.

Hanis: Along, guess whattt...
Me: Ko pregnant?
Hanis: Ha'ahhhh!!!! Aaaaa...
Me: Ohmygoddd!

Heee.... Don't ask me how I knew it. My sisterly-instinct told me kot. Either that, or I am a psychic. Hecee... ;p (pronounce it as 'psy-chick' ok). I was over the moon when I heard the news. Hanis. Pregnant. Baby. Cute baby stuff. Wooohh! But then it occured to me - if she's gonna have a baby, that would soon make me a err... Mak Long? Ohhoo... Kak Long, more like! I mean, I'm not even married yet! ;p

We went on talking excitedly about babies, maternity wears (she complained about GUESS not having bajus for pregnant ladies- hohh gedix kay! Tapi kinda bersetuju gak coz hey, there are GUESS Kids. What about GUESS Moms?), shoes, baby bags, etc.

Anyway, I was supposed to keep it as a secret and berlakon seperti 'terkejut' when they announce it later on masa family get-together, and so I did tapi Tuhan jer la yg tahu betapa tempting nyer utk membuka mulut ini tauu. Especially to my other adiks. I mean, sister-get-preggy is not an everyday thing, ok! So instead of spilling out the secret, I made up a story. I told my bro that they (my BIL and sis) nak banje mkn nanti bcoz they are announcing about migrating to the States konon2 Rahz dpt keje sana. And my bro believed it bulat2, and told my dad about it (and then he told him not to tell mama; bagus la tuuu, dua2 kne tipu) and he too, believed it! haha. And I guess mereka2 lagi terpercaya sehingga la di saat2 terakhir before my BIL told about the preggy story, bcoz he announced about the promotion he got first, so jalan citer pindah ke US itu adalah seperti betul jer (heh Rahz, I think that's why la Abah kinda terkejut sbb he was expecting u mention pasal US lepas tu, instead of 'atuk & nenek' kot...hoho).

Oh btw, I had 5 slices of pizza ok!

Besides family get-together, Bloggers get-together dan meet-ups juga turut berlangsung. I think last week was the week paling ramai pemblog I met so far. Started with Kak Suz and Kak Anna on Friday (ohhh itu Irdina adalah sgt comel dannn tak takut org yer! Fyi, saya adalah agak malu2 kuceng juga dgn baby2. Mungkin kerana mak mereka ada bersama, kalau tak pasti bayi2 itu dah kne terkam lama dah..hihihi. Tapi kalau mereka nangis, saya adalah takut). Then on Saturday met Naya to pass some things and then went for lunch with Mrs. Imran, Alia, Ary and Nina together with Hanis at Chili's (please heskius pancaran kilauan mat kilau di dahi saya dlm gambau ni yer).

Makeup Rave

My favorite makeup look has always been the gigantic-eye-and-pale-lip look, despite what the current seasons and trends are. Black and white eye with thick liner and loud lashes (either with loads of mascara or even better, falsies!) are my current faves, replacing the ever-so-natural browns.

They say "eyes are the window to the soul", so emphasizing the eye area is a must-do for me when it comes to makeup. I don't mind not wearing other makeup essentials (eg: blusher, lipstick, foundation) to accentuate my feature and whatnots, except the eyes. Saya tak bole tinggal itu, even if it were just for eyeliner and mascara only bcoz they make your looks jadi cam alive - you know what I mean? Coz when your eyes are attractive no matter how big or small they are, your face will look attractive - with the right techniques, of course (ok ok, how u dress up or ur level of self-confidence, etc adalah tidak dikira ok. I'm talking about the face area now. The rupa). I don't have the guts to wear fake lashes just yet, although some makeup girls thought I do- so I replace 'em with lots and lots of good black mascara. My personal fave are Stila Lash Visor and Lancome Hypnose, btw. Trust me, they make ur lashes look amazing! Bcoz I wouldn't get compliments about my eyes if it weren't for those, would I? heh heh.

Now if you ask me what my currently desired makeup looks are right now, I would say these....

Pics courtesy from

I wonder how I would look like with that kind of makeup....

So what's your desired makeup look, ladies? (pls don't say natural beauty yer...)

The Sinful Bags and Shoes treat

Alrite, alrite. I know y'all are so excited to see my bags and shoes. Some even SMS-ed me beli bag brand apa! Heee.... I'm just as excited to show 'em to you! *wink*

So I went to pick 'em up last Saturday. The bags and shoes come in a box...

And when I opened the box, I was speechless. They're beyond my expectation!

Nah! Feast your eyes...

Bags and shoes cuppies! Aren't they cuteeeeee?

Pinkk... bags... shoes... oooohh! They're cupcakes. I did say "yummy bags and shoes" before, didn't I? ;p

Thanx Kak Yong and her sis, Sue for those scrumptious cupcakes. According to them, I'm the first to request such theme! So I am just as creative as Kak Yong too, ey? Heee...

France Vacation - Part 2

Alrite, where did I last stop?

Oh right, the Celine bag.

Since some of you wanted to see how it looks like, I'll show u the pic. But ain't gonna show u the whole bag though... Kasi mind-boggling sket! ;p

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

Mine is a monogram khaki shoulder bag, btw and Wani's a hobo - sama pattern jugak (monogram and khaki. We are true copycats, aren't we?).

Speaking of bags, look how klutzy I am. The inner zipped-pocket of my new Scribble Coach bag got stained, thanx to my Dior waterproof crayon eyeliner. Don't ask me how those stains bole terconteng kat situ (I forgot to screw the cap of my eyeliner ketat2)! Arhh...geram2. I've only worn it once ok. I've tried washing it under running water, but bcoz it's a Coach (read: of good material), the fabric didn't get wet - at all. It's waterproof! Which should be a good thing right, but in my case it's a complete con bcoz how on earth am I gonna take those stains off?? Eyeliner nyer waterproof, bag pon waterproof tsk. Is there any shops that specialize in cleaning designer bags? Or should I take this bag to Coach boutique??

Okay, back to Paris.

So besides few tops and the Celine bag, I also got this pair of black boots from a shop that sells lotsa shoesss directly from the factory. It is super cheap, converted to RM tak sampai 150. And they're of good material. The heels are sturdy and they are super comfy, much more comfy than Wani's Nike Cortes - no kidding! That's why Wani bought a pair too. Anyway I bought it bcoz the boots that I got from eBay before going to Paris is way too big. It's a size 39, which is err.. size 7/8 I think? I'm a size 5 foot, so imagine how I walked in those boots. It ain't made for walking - at least not for me.

The one with buckles is Wani's and mine is the slouchy one with stitching details

Anyway, I bought some stuff for my boyfriend too - a stripey blue Polo Ralph Lauren shirt, Planet Hollywood Disneyland Paris t-shirt (which happened to be a tad too small for him), some cute boxers, and this!

The World's Greatest Super Boyfriend trophy!

I think he loves the trophy the most. He got a few stuff for me from Phuket too. It's so nice to exchange pwesents!

I bought a floral babydoll top and Burberry Touch perfume set for my sister, and also some souvenirs from Paris for my friends and customers.

So that's it.

Wait for my next exciting entry on yummy bags and shoes that I just got! (yes, plural).
A sinful treat, I would say ;)

France Vacation - Part 1

Now, now. Shall I begin with my shopping or vacation stories first?
Hmm... I think I'll start with the latter one.

Ok, so we went to France last week. The flight went smoothly, Alhamdulillah. I didn't bring any liquid items on flight sbb takut kang kne rampas ke apa due to the Europe/US liquid bombing thingy. But it turned out mereka tak check langsung. After about 7 hours of exhausting but fun flight, we transited in Dubai for about 4 hours (I watched Devil Wears Prada on flight twice btw. Which makes altogether 6 times!). Then 8 hours after that, we arrived safely in France.

We stayed at Marriott's Village d'Ile-de-France, which is not situated in Paris. I thought duduk btul2 kat kota Paris. Anyway, the Marriot's Village is a really nice place to stay. The area surrounding it is so calm and peaceful, and very scenic - there's a duck pond (or izzit a lake) at the back or our townhouse. C'est magnifique! Plus, transportation is easy bcoz there's a free shuttle bus every few hours which took us to Marne La Valle-Chessy metro station that's only about 5km away. That's where Disneyland is located.

The gigantic chess!

So bcoz Disneyland is only like 10 minutes away from our place, that was the first place we went to. It took us 2 whole days nak habis jelajah both Disneyland Parc and Studio. Tu pon tak semua rides kitorang naik. Btw, this is my first time going to Disneyland (2nd time for my adiks2). I feel like a little kid once again!

Ok, I've done enough talking, so let's move on with the pictures.

We went to some famous places/monuments in Paris the next few days, including Eiffel Tower, Arc de Triomphe, Notre Dame, Opera Garnier, etc etc. I can't remember all the names of the buildings bcoz they're all tongue twisting ! Anyway, I think we did lots of sightseeing more than shopping (that's what happen when dad's around!).

Okay, let's get to the juicy shopping bits!

Of all the shopping malls that I listed down before going to France, we only managed to find 3 of 'em - Galeries Lafayette (there're 2 of 'em. And they're huge!), Bazar de l'Hotel de Ville and Printemps. Things are so expensive especially at Galeries Lafayette, we didn't buy anything. Hello, Lancome mascara when converted to RM is about 130! You can get the same one in Malaysia for less than RM90.

Just a day before going back to Malaysia, we found a mall at Val D'Europe which is waayyyy affordable. I managed to get a few tops, and most of them are brands that I have never heard of (except for Naf Naf).

And, that's not it. There's a designer outlet as well - La Valle Outlet Shopping Village. Yay! Val D'Europe is only one station from Marne La Valle so we went there twice that day sbb dah tak cukup masa nak shopping (balik rumah kejap utk solat).

Anyway, among the outlets yg ada kat situ are Ferragamo, Celine, Bally, Burberry, MaxMara, Lancel, Polo Ralph Lauren, Tommy Hilfiger, Kenzo, Armani, Calvin Klein, Agnes B, Christian Lacroix, Givenchy, Timberland and many many moree.. More than 75 prestigious brands! (too bad there ain't any LV outlet. I was aiming for LV bag) All the brands are 33% cheaper than normal boutiques' prices. And on top of that, we can claim 12% VAT (tax) for purchases over 170 euros. We'd be crazy not to shop!!

Mama bought herself a black leather Bally bag, a blue-ish purple Lancel shoulder bag and Burberry Brit perfume set. Dad bought a few Polo shirts for himself; my bro bought a pair of Timberland boots and a Polo shirt, annnndddddd both my sister and I got these for ourselves:
