story of hajar


kom apa, kombaaaat~~

sambung sendiri sampai pusing balik kat assalamualaikum ya. hehe!

so, today agak busy. i had to run some errands and then tadi i helped Hajar, syrian refugee yang buat Tudung Mutia by taking her to the UN centre in PJ because she wanted to buy insurance for her mother.

i never had the opportunity to really really talk to her.
the first time i met her, her english wasn't so good so we both kinda had trouble communicating and since she had very little vocab, we spoke little and watch the kids play when we had that awkward silence moments.

now alhamdulillah, after months of talking to her, and she also had talked to a lot of people, her english is way better and just now, i was able to understand her real story.
haha =p

rupanya, Hajar ni my age! and she has 3 kids already! masha Allah, all strong boys lak tu =)
the eldest is 9, and the youngest is 3. ke 4? lupa lak =p

i thought she's a syrian, turns out, she's from Iraq. she was born and raised in iraq.
she said, when saddam was there, it was peaceful. "everyone is like brothers" she said.
and when saddam was gone, the syiah wanted to take over the country, by annihilating the sunnis. sounds kasar kan? but it's the truth.

she said her brother was killed because his name was suffian (not sure the spelling though) and because his neighbours told the 'people' that he was a sunni. she said he was captured 5 times, but alhamdulillah he was released. they had to pay the 'people' to get him released..
but the last time, unfortunately, they did not want any money. they just want blood. Hajar and her family found his body in a river.

"alhamdulillah we found the body. some people don't find the body. so i pray to Allah, if they want to take his life, then fine, but let us find his body." she said.

it was kind of hard to share my feelings with her. to be honest, i felt like hugging her and tell her i'm really sorry for all the pain she and her family had to go through. but seeing her being composed, i had to hold back. she's so strong!

she kept saying "alhamdulillah", "subhanallah" as she was telling me her life story. eventhough i write a lot of subhanallah, alhamdulillah, mashaAllah and stuff, it sounds awkward saying it. i don't know why, but when i do want to say it, it'll come out as a whisper. like i'm saying it to myself.

"i saw the most beautiful flower in the garden just now! subhanallah *whisper*" <-- me.


so when iraq wasn't safe for them anymore, she said going out of the house could get them killed, they fled to syria.

she and her family stayed in syria for 3 years.
she said, at first, syria was the best. it's a nice place, people there are kind. and then, the syiah took over. she said syria became worse than iraq. the planes would come and drop bombs at houses.
she said they couldn't take it, so when they went to 'them' (not sure who), they told her that they'll be sending her and her family to malaysia.

since there was no internet in syria then, she only assumed what our country would be like. so they all packed their winter clothings, and came to malaysia. at this point, we were laughing =p

she said when they reached KL, it was raining. "in our country, it only rains in winter. so i thought i did not bring enough winter clothes!" she said.


she said in iraq and syria, when it's hot, it doesn't rain at all. only rains in winter. so subhanallah, we have hot and wet in one season!
=') it's a blessing really!

so when we reached UNHCR, ok, i was completely wrong. i thought the UN would be like a welcoming place. you know, with opened gates, sort of like a hospital, but caters to help refugees and stuff..

NOPE. completely NOPE.
it was like a prison! the gates were closed, people wait outside of the gates because they can't get in. because the security was kind of entahpape.
serious rasa nak sepuk je mamat tu. hmph!

Hajar called the person she called earlier to help her get in. and then the guy showed up and told the security guard to let us in.
we got in, and from the inside, it's like walking through imigresen yang scary. we got in some more, and there were offices left, right, front and center. hajar said they all have to pass all of the interviews in order to be able to stay here.
if you don't pass, you have to repeat.
until you have a UN card.
it takes a whole day, she said. so if they were called for an interview, they'd have to pack food for the kids, and bring drinks.
"oh, so you all have picnic inside here!" i said. awkward laughs..


turns out, the insurance guy went back already. on the door, it says that opening hours was from 9am to 4pm, and it wasn't even 4!
so all that effort to go there, wasted.
the guy who got us in told hajar to come in some other time. it was a good thing that he was very polite. kalau tak.. memang aku naik amok kat situ. haahaha! (yeah right.)

what to do..
we went back to her place. on the way there, we talked about her other work. other than sewing, she cooks really well! she can do cooking classes, and even catering.
kalau nak tau lebih lanjut, if you want to know more, check it out here:

she made this kuah hijau thing with almond, and i, who wasn't a fan of all this hummus kinda thing, fell in love with it. dapat 2 balang tadi! happy sangat!

i asked her how did she learn cooking.
"my mother was going blind, but slowly. so she tells me what to do in kitchen." she said. and she started since she was 12. i dulu pun tolong masak kat dapur, tapi sehapak pun tak ingat.. wahahaha boooo!

so that's what her insurance was for. her mother needs to do eye surgery coz the doctor said she's got cataract. they can't afford the surgery. so yeah.

"you are very strong" i told her.
"ah well. we refugees. our psychology is different because we are refugees. we run here and there." she said.
i think she meant that being a refugee, they have to be strong. they don't think about living lavishly, about clothes, or cars, any of that stuff. they just think of surviving.

she's hoping to get her turn to go to canada. just like this other family in shah alam. they're all looking forward to go there because they can really live there. they can go to school there, work properly, get a driver's license, etc.
being in malaysia is good and all for them, because it's a muslim country. everything is halal, people are nice, but there are restrictions for the refugees. so i pray too, that they'll be able to live a normal life soon, in sha Allah.

for now while they are here, i hope to be able to help them as much as i can.

ps: i might have gotten some info wrong. sorry, sebab kekadang tak terpaham dia kata apa heeee..

La Kayena in MODVIER!!


Alhamdulillah =')

last year, i approached kak sara and asked her how to be part of the Modvier family. back then, Modvier was full. they only open for weekend slots, and i thought, ok la tu. nak try la.
and then, i forgot about it. 

months later, i received an email from kak sara and she invited me to be a vendor in Modvier's new place!

at first i was hesitant.
should i? i was so used to handling things by myself, from production right up to administration, that i wasn't sure if i should be a vendor at any boutique. 
takut dengan online lagi, jadi double work pulak.
i didn't know why i was so worried. haha!
no reason pun actually. i was just nervous, that's all.
i prayed and prayed and alhamdulillah, i agreed and signed the contract.
this was waaayyyy before i joined Maleeqa in Kuantan.

tu la. Allah Maha Mengetahui. Dia punya Plan lagi best!

nadrah became very curious and started catching up to everything i do and say.
she imitates my actions and even try to imitate the things i say.
what was first a jibber jabber, now she can actually say the word.
we can even converse with her!
and i know she's trying to help me clean up the house.. but she still doesn't get it. 
"nadrah, you're supposed to throw the tissue after you 'lap'. not 'lap' your face after you 'lap' the floor, table, door, toys, etc!" -__-"
mashaAllah. hehe!

so with that said, i knew i had to share my responsibilities in La Kayena with someone. and Modvier was that.
they can do the shipping part, so all i have to focus on is the production and marketing.
in sha Allah, may this be the answer =)

my dear La Kayena sisters,
only Allah knows how to return your kindness and support for La Kayena.
many times i cried, forced myself to stay up, forced myself to stay strong while taking nadrah all over the place, trying to settle one problem after another and taking care of her, my husband and our home, and then trying to learn from mistakes while i keep making new ones and so much more.
it wasn't an easy ride.
i even had my studies, exams and project paper to complete.

but you all made it all worth it.
i've received emails from some of the customers and there were a few emails that made me cry of gratitude.
i know La Kayena offers not much of fashionable clothings. i'm really not a creative person since i was born. hehe!

but i like to dress up. and i intend to allow women to dress comfortably for practical purposes.
yes, housewives, students, working women, you all!
we are all busy trying to gain knowledge, running all over the place for our children's sake, we're making sure our husband and children can sleep comfortably through the night, we're busy helping others, we're all strong emotionally, spiritually, mentally and physically.

Do continue supporting La Kayena ya! =')
FYI, La Kayena is on full support for Shawlsuriy. Shawlsuriy consists of tailors who are Syrian refugees here in Malaysia. So, please know that every purchase from La Kayena and Shawlsuriy, a portion will be given to Syria/Palestine, in sha Allah.

Information on Modvier:
Modvier is now in Bangsar, at PT 392 Jalan Maarof (Right next to PETRON, main road of Jalan Maarof)
Follow Modvier on Instagram (@modvier) and you can order your items via whatsapp by using the number they provide! =D


Monday, March 2, 2015



It was a few days before chinese new year's holiday when mom, my aunt, nadrah and i went to Terengganu for a bit of a getaway.

My mom's got a friend who owns a B&B (bed and breakfast) inn at Kijal called Kijalena.
It has been so long since i've been to the beach, so i was so happy that my mom asked me if i wanted to join. OF COURSE MA, YES! AKU NAK TENANGKAN MATA SIKIT NI HA!
masa tu i was macam serabut sikit, sebab...

and i thought, it could be a good learning experience for nadrah. hehee =)

of course, a few hours of being in the car was boring for nadrah and the car seat was just crampin' her style. haha!

alhamdulillah we reached our destination and when i laid eyes on the view from the B&B, SUBAHANALLAH!

ok the picture wasn't doing the view any justice, and that fishing pole, well. perhiasan. haha!

seriously, it was so refreshing!
the air was calm, the water was beautiful - i could see the blue part and the green part, and it was in a kampung area, so it wasn't busy at all. it was just us and nature. =')

the moment we stepped out of the car, nadrah saw the swimming pool and immediately she wanted to swim.
she kept looking at the pool, and said "cim, cim" which means, swim, swim. -_-'

she got what she wanted. we went swimming.
the best thing about this B&B, is that the whole household is so unique. i pun tak reti nak explain. but the pool area, memang banyak tempat lepak. so while nadrah and i were swimming, my mom, aunty shikin (my aunt) and aunty nina (the owner of Kijalena) were chilling by the poolside. 

in case y'alls were wondering, this is where we stayed. this is the chalet, 3 rooms, each has its own toilet, there's wifi too. so donch worri. =)
the owners live in a house opposite of the chalet (in the same compound of course) with their family. they're all super nice!

so yeah! nice kan? =D
after swimming, nadrah and i went exploring.
oh ya, nadrah got a toy horse from aunty nina. because there was an actual horse in their compound.

jeng jengggg!
his name was something like cavalli? roberto cavalli? eh tu nama kain.
something like that la. hehe!

it's not their horse, but they're looking after it for a friend. 
so the orang kampung suka betul tengok the horse. they would stop their motorcycles and watch the horse eat or whatever secara berjemaah. hehe!
i would love to chill with the horse, but nadrah was between scared and amazed at it. she's like that with everything actually. wahaha!
she extends her hand to touch it, and the second i put her close enough to it, she withdraws her hand and lean back. takut.
ceit. there was a monkey too, and a guard dog (we didn't go near it. takut. haha!)

so now she knows what "hosh" and "angki" looks like in real life. good girl! 

then we went to the beach, and nadrah was so squirmish that i got so uncomfortable. her squirms made my tudung go everywhere. i was so worried my tudung would flip and fly or something. haha!
good thing there was a log, and we sat there. so nadrah can see the sand but they're not in contact. 
the sand was "geyi" to her! (geyi = geli)

good thing she didn't want to "cim" in the sea. gila apa?!
nadrah fefeeling kew tewwww~

baby, tak ponek lagi ke?
ummi dah pancit gilos ok...

memandangkan it's a B&B inn, not a hotel, so we had to look for dinner ourselves. not to worry! they have a pasar malam on monday nights, and mesra mall is just about 15minutes drive. it's all good!

that night was a monday night, and we all enjoyed eating our nasi kerabu and keropok lekor yang sedap gilos and tak berminyak. rindu pulak!

the next day, we went to kuala terengganu, which was seriously far than i thought, and got ourselves some keropok, keropok lekor and.. budu and all sorts la! we bought them all at the pasar payung.
after shopping, we went to the masjid terapung and that's where nadrah saw fishies chasing after food.
the fishes we're used to seeing are the ones in aquariam. so, no kejar-kejar la.
she got so excited everytime the fishes goes after the food she threw in.
kept repeating "pish, pish, pish, pish" sambil bagi ikan makan, sambil tengok my face, sambil tengok my mom's face. hahaha!

alhamdulillah =)
cantik masjid ni!

when we got back to Kijalena, of course nadrah wanted to swim.
but not after we chill at the beach jap ye sayang!
ololoooo~ so gadis melayu terakhir! hehehee!

tokmom, stopped taking pictures and get me a drink! - said nadrah.


we went swimming shortly after (since nadrah insisted), but we swam for like, less than 30minutes i think? 15 minutes like that coz nadrah got tired and she wanted the keropok the aunties were eating at the pool side.

that night, we went to mesra mall for dinner =)
mesra mall tu ok la gak, banyak kids. nadrah loves seeing kids so she was happy.
there was this girl around her age, and she was so sweet! kissing nadrah and smiling a lot. nadrah even played with a kakak who wasn't even playing with her! hahahaha! kelakar tengok!
and then there was this exercise machines display at the concourse, and the kids just took over the place. they were playing with the shake-lemak thingy and the treadmill. 

reminds me of my childhood. hehe!

we headed for home the next day after breakfast. 

my mom actually intended for me to get the writer's block out of me, but i got so tired coz nadrah.. was being like any other toddler yang 'nak kenal dunia'. 

i wasn't inspired to write after the trip, but i was inspired by the beauty of the sea. 
i felt so at peace when i look at the beach. 
all of my senses were remembering everything.
i've been holding on to too much of metal that i almost forgot what sand felt like. my eyes were used to looking at screens - tv screen, laptop, phone - that i almost forgot the colours of the sea water. my ears were so used to hearing noise, that i forgot what calm sounds like.
it was amazing.

i felt truly blessed that Allah allowed me to come here. it was a wake up call! 
i thought, Allah's creation is this beautiful, then Allah must be..Wow. the creation is nothing like the Creator, right?
subhanallah. subhanallah. glorified is Allah. glorified is Allah. =')

so, if you're interested to stay at this place, here's their contact number!

thank you ma =)
i love you so much.

thank you and all praise to Allah for this rezeki =)

Bijak Berinternet


tak jawab dosa, jawab sayang.
bahahahaha =p

since the internet has blossomed into a 'click and share' portal, every information we need is just a click away. sometimes, some things bukan kita cari pun, tapi sebab orang share kat media sosial kita, kita pun dari tak tau, jadi tau.

for example, i don't have plants at home (yet), and then my mom shared with me about how diapers can be used for gardening!

and then there are stuff people share online that are complete lies and scams.

i remember one time there was this news about how this insect can 'buat rumah' kat badan manusia. it turns out that it was photoshopped!! and the worst part was, ramai yang percaya benda tu!

kalau bab agama lagi la. ramai betul nak share hadith, sunnah atau ajaran agama tapi tak check kesahihan benda tu. yang kelakarnya, ada orang letak gambar syeikh mana entah pastu letak quote satu, pastu kata orang tu yang cakap quote tu, padahal tu rekaan semata mata.

so, while it is good, this 'click and share' habit, sebab boleh share banyak info yang berguna dan bermanfaat, tapi kalau kita tak berjaga jaga, info yang tak benar, palsu dan fitnah boleh membinasakan diri dan pembaca.

it's good then, that we all equip ourself with knowledge and practise caution on what we share online, and we need to know what our rights are as users of the internet (based on Malaysian Law) and what we need to stay out of.

ok, here's a site when you can get all your needed info!

here's where you'll find your info -->
video chat pun kena ada batasan y'alls! know your limits here mkaaay?

you'll find tips on what to do too if you encounter whatever online.

And not only that, MCMC wants to reach out to all of you out there in regards to online security and safety precautions through its Facebook page here -->

There are several topics and tips shared there, so it is always good to furnish ourselves with new info every now and then right?

Some interesting info like:

About what people think of 'learning' or believing the things they see on Facebook 

And a few other interesting tips from protecting your machines to malicious software to safeguarding your own digital presence.

so i encourage you all to read up and get educated on what you can and cannot do when you're in the internet. remember, internet is a world without obvious barrier, so you need to protect yourself, mkaaaay?

stay safe!

Featured in Anis Magazine!


Alhamdulillah ummi dan anak dijemput berceloteh kat Anis Magazine haritu.

tau tak, alkisahnya.

i borrowed mom's helper sorang sebab nak mintak dia tengokkan nadrah sekejap sementara ummi ni bertangkap gambo kat studio sedia ada dalam ofis magazine Anis ni.
Nadrah masa tu dah la baru dapat kaki, so she was sooooooooo active!

kat studio tu, ada backdrop kain yang panjang dari siling sampai ke lantai pastu stretched sampai ke hujung dinding. so nadrah, dengan slambe dia, pergi lari lari kat kain tu, pastu menghempas kan diri dia kat backdrop tu sebab macam best kot. ahhaha!!

she kept on tripping on herself too while running around, and semua orang kat dalam studio macam macam dah buat nak suruh dia careful sikit and duduk diam sekejap untuk amik gambar.

but, AS IF! thought nadrah. "IMMA RUN, I DON'T CARE" she thinks.

so several attempts to take pictures with her failed and she looked so annoyed at being held from her freedom to run. hahaha!

macam ni. hahaha!

but in all seriousness, do get your hands on this month's copy of Anis Magazine to read more on what i have to say about Keberkatan Rezeki =)

excuse my awkward pose =p

alololooo tiutnya nadrah ni. hahaha!

anyway, thank you Anis Magazine for having me!
moga apa yang saya share dalam magazine ni bermanfaat untuk semua orang yang ingin mencari rezeki yang berkat, tapi tak tau bagaimana =)
in sha Allah =)

Mix and Match tips


2015 just started and i need a new wardrobe T_T

bukan apa, i have outgrown some of my clothes. wuwuwuwu.. takpe la, membesar dengan nadrah kan. so bagus la tu kan? *ayat sedap hati tapi.. nasi lemak macam sedap je mmmmm...*

sebab 2015 just started, i don't plan on spending so much on clothes. and eventhough i sell clothes, i kinda..still..need..more. haha! =p

mana lagi kan nak dapat baju banyak tapi price murah pastu beli online je lak tu, pastu sampai within 24 hours lak tu. my sweeties. mana lagi.

even i'm amazed at their service. nak berguru ngan diorang la..

anyway, here akak nak share ngan akak akak adik adik sekalian, cara mix and match hantam taram sing a song!

Blue on Blue

di sini acik acik sekalian, ittew match kan warna pakaian dengan warna handbag. ampun la ye, baju tak sompek gosok =p
tapi point di sini ialah, kita match kan warna dominant pada pakaian, in this case, biru pada jubah, dan match kan nya dengan handbag biru.
simple and tak perlu sakit otak nak pikiaq matching camane. tul tak? hehee..

ni lagi satu contoh Blue on Blue

instead of matching dengan warna dominant, matchkan dengan warna yang sikit, tapi pops out! sebab bag pack ada tribal patterns yang penuh colours, so boleh go crazy with mixing and matching! i chose blue blouse camni and tudung floral ni sebab dekat bag pun nampak blue dan orange. so ok la kan? hehehe!

Brighten it up!

sometimes ye la, teringin pakai baju colour manis manisan gitu tapi tak reti nak match ngan tudung colour apa kan? ha, sini acik acik sekalian, match kan aja colour manisan dengan manisan yang lain. in this case, turquoise and pink. bag pape pun tak kisah, serious. tapi jangan la pakai bag galas ultraman ke sailormoon. tu mengundang namanya wahaha =p

Go Neutral

gold ialah antara warna yang sangat best nak match kan. sebab dia dalam group warna neutral (sekali dengan hitam, grey, etc), jadi pakai dengan tudung pink pun dah comel lotey. pastu nak pakai ngan handbag boleh, bag pack boleh, macam macam la! kalau students, pakai la ngan bag pack yang cute camni!

Sweet and Fresh

ni tips bagi acik acik yang suka warna pink. you don't need to wear all pink you know? pakai tudung pink, pastu match kan dengan baju putih dengan a subtle lace details dengan bag ala ala tribal tapi manis ni, haaa. dah cukup sweet! dan yang bestnya, nampak suci dan fresh!

When in doubt, wear BLACK
Blue Pouch (comes with the Blue Handbag)

macam yang telah dihabaq tadi, warna hitam tergolong dalam warna neutral, jadi kalau acik acik ada dah serabut tak tau nak pakai apa dah ni, pakai la black! tapi untuk nampak fresh sikit, pakai la bag berwarna ataupun tudung berwarna. sebab it's black, so you can mix and match to your heart's content!

Think POKOK!

this is perhaps my favourite tip. alam flora sangat cantik kot! jadi kita guna pokok ataupun kalau acik acik nak, guna bunga rose ke, lily ke, sebagai inspiration untuk match kan baju & tudung. macam kat sini, pakai shawl berbunga, pastu blouse hijau and done! untuk mengurangkan effect pokok tu, pakai bag funky sweet camni pun dah ok =)

kita bukan la fashionista sangat, tapi even i sometimes have problems nak mix and match. so kena go back to basic and think simple.

harap harap tips ni semua berguna la untuk acik acik sekalian =) tapi tip yang paling paling penting ialah: BE YOU. because you are Be-You-tiful =)

PS: Tudung Mutia (3 layered tudung in Pink) and Floral Shawl are courtesy of La Kayena! Available at Modvier and Maleeqa Exclusive =)

La Kayena in Kuantan!!

tak jawab dosa, jawab sayang~


those were the days. ahak!

anyway, haritu our little family went to Kuantan to attend the grand opening of Maleeqa Exclusive, a muslimah fashion house, right behind ECM, in Malay Town.
it was the weekend after we got back from Chiang Mai.
masa tu, nadrah dah sihat alhamdulillah.
tapi.. I PULAK YANG SAKIT! wahahaha best kan nadrah kasi tai chi sama itu penyakit kat ummi =p
kulit hidung masa tu dah terkupas kupas sebab asyik buang hingus, pastu telinga pekak sebab macam tersumbat, tekak pun sakit. sakit pun.. banyak gak bercakap. nyehehehe =p

i'm so surprised on how different Kuantan looks now! the last time i went there was in 2005, masa matrix kat gambang. my friends and i would go to kuantan parade by bus, and then if we're rajin, we walk all the way to kuantan megamall. masa matrix mende sangat la nak buat kan. dari gambang ke kuantan tu dah la jauh, so we all make up for it by hanging out at KFC and terminal bas sebab ada cendol pulut tapai yang best gila. entah ada lagi ke tak sekarang.. a few times gak dapat gi Teluk Cempedak dulu. tak swim pun. just lepak tepi pantai and watch people. good times =p

i thought nak revisit my old lepak places but husband macam penat and stuff (dia pun sakit) so kita hold for next time la kita visit kuantan. please share whatever good places to eat and visit! heheeee

back to butik!

tadaaaa~ ramai sangat masa opening tu! sebab kak Fynn Jamal pun datang. hehee..
cantik gilos interior butik ni, serious!
simple & classy. oh and comfy!

at first bila dapat proposal untuk jadi vendor kat butik ni, i was a bit hesitant because i don't know if i could afford it, lagi lagi sebab dah join Modvier. tapi sebab kak Nadia Bayu convinced me, saying that it's a good place, kak Nadia owner Maleeqa ni pun sangat baik, so i agreed in the end. 
and alhamdulillah, kak Nadia hosts usrah classes in the butik as well, so it made me feel so relieved knowing that a beautiful space like that is utilised fully =')
good job kak Nadia!

ni la kak Nadia! kecil molek tapi berjiwa besar dan sangat berdisiplin

alhamdulillah dapat opportunity to meet the super owners of super butiks!
Pija of Minaz and Kak Huda of Hijriahome.
they're both super humble and super hardworking, that's why la kot diorang super. 
nak super gaaaaaaakkkkk =p

kak Huda yang also berjiwa besar and seriously best sangat berborak dengan dia! rasa tak puas nak bersembang kencang. wahahaha!

Nadrah ni pulak dengan kurang sihatnya (hidung sok sek je), ya Allah, memang active sangat! main main with budak lain, and dia baring baring kat carpet ni, where kak Fynn Jamal tengah meet and greet fans dia. ish! talk about trying to steal the limelight! hahaha!
i'm glad i get to meet kak Fynn too. dulu first time jumpa dia, kat hotel kat muo masa raya. tapi kitorang tak borak sembang mende la. just tegur sikit sikit pastu bye!
touch n' go. huhu.

encik spidos suami tersayang, dengan anak muka copy paste bapak dia, dan suami kak Huda, who was husband's senior kat skolah dulu and UTP! 
kata husband, suami kak Huda ni penyabar sangat. cakap kat anak anak pun lembut lembut. patutlah anak dia melekat je kat dia. amazing!

so disebabkan kami se-family travelled long and far that day, kita pun balik awal sikit. tapi balik hotel kat kuantan. kak Nadia book kan hotel untuk kita to stay overnight. thank you kak!! =') moga Allah limpahkan rezeki kepada akak and family, in sha Allah~

dah rest kejap kat bilik hotel, kita pun nak cari tempat makan yang best. husband ada kawan yang nak datang jumpa dia. diorang nak sesi catch up la gitu. so we chose a place that's easy for everyone. we went to Malay Town again and went to eat at this nasi kukus restaurant. forgot the name -_-'
it was ok la. i was hoping the kuah tu pedas lagi. but the chicken was good. and i'm not a fan of chicken, so that's saying something!

bila nak makan tu, si Nadrah was so active that husband couldn't eat coz she kept wanting to walk around, and it wasn't a closed restaurant. he took the first shift of walking around with nadrah, and in the meantime, i was eating as fast as i could so i could take over the shift.

after his shift was done, i took nadrah back to Maleeqa (it was just down the road) and crashed in while they were busy closing the counter. haha! tak malu betul =p

kak Nadia sibuk. tapi serious cantik la the butik. can't get over it!

this is my lil' space =')
alhamdulillah the clothes were sold successfully! rasa nak nangis tengok. tapi sebab i malu, i didn't even step into my space. it's because i don't want to count my own stocks (i have a tendency to do that). tak manis la kira stock depan orang kan! hehee =p

Nadrah was so happy coz she had friends to play with. not that she knows what's happening. she was just running all over the place. and tripping all over the place!

kak Nadia's boys were so good-mannered, mashaAllah! they played with nadrah, and layan her everywhere she ran off to.
here, they were playing pretend. the adik was pretending to be a gorilla, the abang was the 'savior' while nadrah was the 'damsel in distress' (she was holding someone else's phone. ish nadrah nadrah -__-')

it was so funny watching the kids play! i was laughing and observing them play coz it looks so fun! padahal tak paham pun apa agenda diorang! hehehe 

we went back to kl the next day.
it was tiring because i wasn't feeling so well, but i'm satisfied that i got to meet people i admire and respect. and of course i was so happy that i was able to meet La Kayena supporters! alhamdulillah!

thank you so much kepada awak yang bershopping baju & tudung dari La Kayena, dan even datang untuk jumpa saya yang kulit hidung terkupas, mata sembap, telinga pekak ni =') terharu tau tau tauuuu! pastu thanks sangat sebab sudi buat saya ni macam best friend korang, berborak santai macam kenal lama. heheee =)

sesiapa kat kuantan atau berhampiran dengan kuantan, pergi la shopping atau berusrah kat Maleeqa Exclusive ni!
follow their instagram @maleeqa.exclusive to see their updates k?
in sha Allah, La Kayena pun akan restock barang sana soon! weeee~~
