Why do you buy things online?

Assalammualaikum..Hello workday..

Woke up a bit late, trying to adapt to my old worklife schedule. Lucky the traffic was okay and arrived at the office within 40 minutes. psst..usually with heavy traffic, it could take as much as 1 hour and half :(

So, I've been selling my old stuff on the net, here. with lack of items uploaded, the biz runs quite good. A bit. Maybe a little. and it's a lie if I don't buy anything from friendly fashion. Stumble upon some good stuff, made me goes wild..there is a lot of thinking there, trust me. Sometimes I do wonder, how actually do you shop online? Do you guys have any rules to stick to?

What's really bugging me is.. How do you buy shoes online?
Face it, even in real life it's hard for me to buy one. From flat shoe to wedges. from brown to salmon pink..I'd test them all..imagine online? I believe in buying shoes, your feet have to make the decision. Maybe a picture with a person wearing it will be helpful.

Same goes as carpet right guys? I love touching the carpet with my feet.. bad bad habit :(

and this is funny :D

Assalammualaikum and hello everyone :)

Raya is coming and....there are tons of dates / kurma left. Hehehe..instead of worrying other things, my mind is on the dates. Though I'm a big fan of them, I'm a real fussy eater sometimes. It's too sweet, too ripe, too lembik..I don't eat lah. :) So that's the reason why so many boxes of dates left..

but worry no more, here some recipes..

Merry Marry Night

Hello everyone and Salam Ramadhan.

20-days of fasting has gone by..can you believe it? I still remember how was my first day of fasting.. preparing to break fast at my home, Taiping.. and the rest in between of the fasting day was a blurry images in my mind kan..

So, I'm still preoccupied with the wedding stuff in my head.. and no, I'm not getting married in a short time tau.. It's just like berangan, wishing to marry a young adorable prince..just like when we are a child :) but this time, it's berangan within the limit and trying to make it happens..

Experience has taught me a lot of things. Not all are useful, but some maybe.. All those wedding I've attended, made me thinking why wedding reception at night is not in the list.. It's really hot nowadays kan, even with all those fans, ceiling fans, kipas tangan, fans with water spraying all over..It's not enough. I just wish wedding are done during night..

Some day, my wedding maybe? hehehe... 

and would you guys come to night-time wedding? 
Selamat berpuasa, mari mencari malam lailatulqadar pada akhir 10 hari Ramadhan :)

DIY : Wedding Wonders

Assalammualaikum and Happy Sunday everyone..

Just finished cleaning up my room, doing laundry, doing a housewife..and all force me to think of wedding.. plus the 'apa artinya cinta' playing on tv :D

The love is in the air.. Numbers of my friends are getting married.. by I mean numbers, I got 3 wedding invitations on the same weekend. Guess what, all the venues is "too close"..kutub utara kutub selatan la kan..

and yes, it is the time that makes me feel like I'm getting older.. Older than when you get birthday wishes. but, it doesn't matter actually, I don't really care. What I'm really concern is the finance!

Base on my experience, I could claim that we tend to splurge on wedding..too much.. too lavish. and I really hate the fact that you have to save tons, just to get married. Marriage shouldn't be a burden.

Why not you just do it yourself? So here what I've been googling..




It's all there, just search and do it.. or ask someone to help kan..
Happy fasting and too bad I'm working tomorrow..

Wishing all muslims, have a great nuzul al-Quran :)

Update: links can be found from my pinterest :) sorry for any inconvenience causes.

Friendly Fashion: not just burning your calories

Salam and good morning..

I was browsing and googling for some excitement, insert 'vintage blogshop'. Hoping to buy some pre-loved things online at cheaper prices.. This is what I've found..

Friendly Fashion, top the chart of my guilty pleasure shopping website I've ever found. Even better than what I've hoped for actually. While burning the calories by clicking the mouse (do they? heh..) constantly and eagerly I suppose.. 

Friendly fashion offers what I've got in minds. A centre for fashion lovers, who can sell/swap/or even give away their no longer needed items. How cool is that kan?

Plus, I can say that Friendly Fashion gives you a chance to claim that you're absolutely a..
1. Smart consumer. pay less and get more items. or even swap items with others
2. Nature lover, buying used clothes to reduce use of natural resources
3. and a kind-hearted person, who's doing charity for good not for the money.

All in all, it's free.  No additional fee or cukai or something. Even celebrities are taking part in selling their unused clothes. Just sign up and feast your eyes..

p/s : don't forget to vote for me.. or just browsing my items, here.. Thank you sugar :)
