Hi all. Hope u are all doing well. Guess what, Ramadhan is just around the corner. I guess people are also starting to look into Hari Raya preparations, especially on Raya outfits. Well, same here! :) 


Since I've kicked start my sewing recently, hence a project for my princess is a MUST. hehe
To start off..... a very simple baju kurung. Here's a tutorial if u feel like sewing one for yourself. This is the first part, which is the top. The skirt will follow suit. 


Step 1: prepare the pattern; 
bodyx1, sleevesx2, kekekx2, pesakx4






Step 2: Sew the pieces together; pesak + kekek + sleeves







Step 3: prepare the neck interfacing 





Pin in on the centre of 'body' at the marked notch

Sew on the dotted red line


Remove the 'neckhole'

Step 4 : Finishing up 
Sew the 'body' & the pieces in step 2

TADA..!! Almost finish..


Ok, hope this is helpful & inspired u to do some DIY baju kurung.. :)

Tokyo: Faces & Fashion

Craving for Cosplay !

Well, as the title goes, i was really anxious to witness this unique Japan phenomena. However, only managed to catch glimpses of it coz erm.... basically wrong timing. Most of theses youngsters will normally be at Takeshita-Dori on Sunday morning/noon. But we went there in the evening, so i guess we only saw the saki baki of it. Hahaha.. ;p

Anyhow, Japanese people are indeed very interesting. They are very very very hardworking, dedicated, disciplined and systematic. Regardless of what their job entails, from top rank executives to security guards, you can really see how they put 200% effort in doing their work. And when it comes to fashions & trends, hmm i guess they apply the same thing too.  

Here are some of Tokyo street fashion that i can share with u. And also some faces & styles that intrigued me.  Hope u like it as much as i did! :)

I Love Henna Paste

Tube Henna

Salam. Hi all!

This is definitely one of my favourite past-time. DIY menicure/pedicure. I don't know about you guys, but i love wearing henna on my nails.

With the advance of time & technology, it is now readily available in paste form, sold in tubes. They come in a few brands though. You can get them from Mydin as well as many other local outlets.

Here are some of the samples and how the colour turned out to be. At first it can be a bit brownish, but give it a day or two and it'll turn to that original orangey henna colour.


Ps:/ I used two different brands here as demonstration. Notice one is not as bright as the other.
Have fun experimenting! :)
