"Ya Allah, aku berlindung denganMu daripada kegelisahan dan kesedihan, dan aku berlindung dengan-Mu daripada sifat lemah dan malas, dan aku berlindung dengan-Mu dari sifat penakut dan bakhil, dan aku berlindung dengan-Mu daripada bebanan hutang dan penindasan manusia."
since the day i found out that i can actually adjust the length of zig zag stitch at my sewing machine,
i kept on trying to sew appliques to my products. so this is another creation of mine, i saw something like this but on table cloth, and i applied it on my bag.
i used linen for the body of the bag, and sew the heart shapes using zif zag stich. sangat la susahnya. especially at corners, kena slow down and pusing kain at the same time. as i was slow, benda tu tak pusing pun. haha. so kena la naikkan jarum dan pusing sendiri. so, jadilah heart shape yang tak berapa nak heart sangat tu. korang faham tak eh..?
but then, the bag is still cute. you can view more items kat sewfabby~*
pagi-pagi tadi on the way ke office, ralit dengar topic ni dibincangkan kat hot.fm. and , baru tahu yang sekarang ada ramai betul yang jadi host morning show hot fm tu, 4 orang kalau tak silap.
16th, tak la teruk sangat kan? :) and being a lady, memang sentiasa stress pun. tiap-tiap hari, ada je benda yang boleh jadi bahan penambah perisa untuk jadi stress. bangun pagi, tak tau nak pakai baju apa - stress dah. belum campur bangun lambat lagi tu. then, drive keluar rumah. ada pulak driver lain yang kurang asam, masuk lane tak kasi signal - stress seterusnya. lalu jalan shortcut, jalan tu pun jam. menyumbang lagi. sampai office, ada pulak yang menambah perisa - stress lagi.kalau sampai lambat, stress lagi bila fikir nanti gaji kena potong or apa nak jawab pada bos.
i think, ini stress yang biasa la tiap-tiap hari. then balik rumah, bila dah penat kerja mesti ada lagi yang menambah. tengok pinggan tak basuh ke, or cawan yang ada atas meja semalam hari ni pun still ada kat tempat yang sama. and.. dengar cerita kawan pun boleh jadi stress jugak, betul tak? kawan pompang pompang cerita pasal love life dia, kita pun jealous kenapa suami saya tak macam ni? or kawan cerita dia kena dera ke, partner main kayu tiga ke, kita pun tumpang stress, tumpang tension untuk dia. haha :)
so, memang stress lah aje setiap hari. lelaki pun ada je tertekan, cuma they don't show it. betul jugak kata usop wilcha tadi, lelaki tertekan sebab menekan mesin atm untuk keluarkan duit kasi isteri. kelakar, tapi betul kan. as the breadwinner, dia pun tertekan jugak untuk pastikan semua cukup untuk ahli rumah.
tapi, bersyukur dengan apa yang ada. buat la activity apa-apa untuk kurangkan stress. nyanyi dalam kereta ke, gosok baju awal sikit ke, menjahit ke, apa-apa la.. ok, bye!
initial plan was to go to the lake garden and eat sandwich or something (since no bbq is allowed)
then my sister suggested for us to go mandi sungaiii..!!
it's been ages, seriously ages since we last mandi sungai. so yes, semua pun quite excited. hehe
kids had fun, walaupun mula-mulanya semua takut nak masuk sungai. typical town kids, selalu mandi swimming pool je, mana ada arus n batu-batu macam kat sungai kan. my youngest niece, sampai sudah tak mahu jejak kaki kat dasar sungai. takut ikan. so we had to carry her, or she sat on one of us, on she stepped on our feet.
i finally finished writing and editing my assignments last night. yes, last night. actually, every semester my wish and promise is always the same. to finish all my assignments early. to ensure that i finished my revisions weeks before my final exams. this semester, assignment part is gone. wait for the revision part pulak.
one of the days when i was so pressured with the assignments, i tweeted about going home and sew something. aim & nils said just go ahead. and semangat pun kobar-kobar je to go home and sew something. but then, tak buat. so last night, midnight to be exact, i took out my sewing bag and started cutting some 'delicious' fabrics i bought from kak sue and made some buttons. yup, just buttons and that made me happy enough. :)
so tonight, gonna start on a project. if berjaya, i'll show u lovelies the outcome ya.
we stayed for three days at rome, as my mil reached rome on thursday, and my flight back to kl is on sunday. untuk memudahkan and most importantly to save time queuing, we bought Roma Pass (€25 each) for the whole three days. the pass covers transportation around rome, 2 museums or one archeological site, discounts for the next museums or archeological sites, and few other things. you can read it at their website. we bought the pass for the transportation & sebab malas nak beratur especially at colosseum. other option would be to buy the 3-days tourist ticket (metro) for €11. tapi lepas fikir-fikir, rasa macam rugi pun ada. cuma save masa je la kot.
first stop of the day, would be the colosseum.
took train from our hotel, to colosseo station. and the moment we stepped out from the station. this was what we saw.
stunned for a while. for me it was so so amazing. soalan ialah, besar gilanya, macam mana zaman dulu punya teknologi ni, siap terfikir ok zaman dulu punya arena pun tahan sikit punya lama and kita punya stadium baru buat tapi runtuh (okay jahat di situ)
next is palatine hill
tiba-tiba got no idea on what to write, enjoy the photos je la ya
of my besty's wedding last weekend. we both went to same primary school, same secondary school and continued being friends till now. same goes to all of us. mashe, dayang & munirah helped me a lot when i first started working at shah alam (all of them were at shah alam by then). i still remember we went around s.a like hell cari rumah.
we went through quite a journey together, there were times we hang out asyik nak jumpa saja, times when we prepared for interviews, times when we had 'cold war' (haha so stupid..) but we remained friends and i am so happy for her that she found a super nice guy to take care of her. and ajim. ajim happened to be husband's friend back in states so pusing-pusing tak ke mana. husband kept on repeating that he's the matchmaker. :p
the lovely bride, few minutes before turning to mrs. ajim
ajim, being interviewed by the kadhi. alhamdulillah everything went smooth, he brought all the documents, no tricky questions for ajim. sekali lafaz je dengan lajunya, ajim menjadi mr. mashe.
tidak ada tepuk tangan di situ, semua terus berdoa.
the next day was the kenduri day at ipoh town hall. gorgeous wedding, gorgeous pelamin by zaid again. you can view the pelamin photo at his blog. the rest of the clan were there, ada munirah & apaii the newlywed, sha & pali minus baby damia, indah & apis with aqeel, myself minus husband, dayang minus didi & ina.
well babe, i'm really really happy for you dear
i'm glad it's ajim & you
he seems like a nice guy and i hope & pray that i am right about that
no certain advice as i myself pun baru lagi.
but i wish both of you all the best, part bersabar especially.
we'd think that the wedding is over, so no more penings.
but actually moreeeee penings are coming and more patience needed.
attended a beautiful wedding of a beautiful friend today
what made it more special was that all of us were there
selamat pengantin baru mashe & ajim
i finally wore my kaftan dress, lepas berapa lama tak confident nak pakai baju ni. disebabkan takde baju, n tak sempat nak get a new baju for the wedding, pakai jugak. not bad la, ok je sebenarnya. it was just me, nak try benda baru, tapi takut nak cuba. jangan jadi macam makcik okay.
more details on the wedding tomorrow insha Allah.
saja je simpan dulu their photos, i know my friends are expecting for the photos to be uploaded tonight hehe.
