Clothing Color Combinations Ideas




Starting Monday with a beneficial entry like this! Erm... I'm lovin' it!
  
Color coordinations & combinations is very important to me... Wearing the right outfits, with the right hijab, carrying the right handbag and then walk in the right shoes, it all matters to me! 
I don't want to be the centre of attractions with the wrong reason...

Oh one more thing, i don't prefer color blocking, but i would wear 'em once in a while...
My most favourite is pastel colors, and i would wear them often! 

Anyway, here's are some color combinations ideas i would like to share! 
I ranked them from my most favourite, to the least (but still favor)!

Pink to grayed jade

Pink & turquoise


Color layers



Rose brown to grayed jade


Blue + neutral


Layers of purple + beige/champagne


Purples & peach


Purple, pink &  peachy flamingo



Layers of green & turquoise



Yellow & neutral colors (eg:gray)



Green and beige




Blue + orange








Erm, i hate pairing yellow with green :pp

Rifqi's Birthday Celebration - Rifqi turns 1!

Maybe my sequences of entries update are quite miserable... Pardon me for that! So now, i would like to update on Rifqi's birthday party which were held on 23rd July, during raya this year!

My parents suggested that it best to have the celebration on Raya 'cause Rifqi's actual birthday falls one day before Ramadhan...

On the 23rd morning, my mom and i were so busy in the kitchen while Izzat & my brother busy hanging up the balloons outside the house, Rifqi just watched BabyTV by himself while waiting for his tokki to buy roti canai for our breakfast...
Time flies so fast and we didnt realize that it finally 1pm and we should go get ready!
(Rifqi was fast asleep with his papa already around 11am something, so that he'll be full of energy to blow the candle later!)

We finally ready at around 2pm++, where, the guests already arrived...
And the cutting cake ceremony is held around 3pm++!

Rifqi doesn't understand much, but he was happy when the candles were light up! 
And we got busy with the guests until, evening... Rifqi too!

The preparations 

Thinking and imagining things is hard, since i'm not creative kind of person...
So all i can think about is, what are we (me, husband & rifqi) going to wear; how to, a lil bit, decorate the house; and what to put on the desserts table...

We had several trips to Mr DIY & Kaison...
And these places are such great place for my search... I got almost everything from here! 


The theme

Not much of a theme...
I just stressed on red color baloons to represents Elmo... That's because Rifqi loves to watch Furchestor Hotel so much, and he loves the character Elmo...


The Decorations

Not much, just baloons, and some backdrop!
I decided to just hang the "Happy Birthday" wordings and place some of Rifqi's photos at the back... 
 My uncle helped a lot...He did all that for us!

As for the baloons, my brother, husband, and cousin lah bertungkus lumus memanjat, where the instructions came from my uncle :p


The Desserts Table

A few elements only on the table, the table is not much of a size, so i don't want it to look so crowded...

There is Rifqi's Elmo Birthday Cake, Secret Recipe's Choc Cheese Berries, eclairs & fruit puffs from Aneka Rasa Food; tiny bites in red & blue; bread butter pudding by my uncle; paper cups, plates & hats from MR DIY, and some snacks...

Cupcakes toppers are all by yours truly...


The Birthday Cake

I ordered the cake from an insta seller, Fleur Cakery... 
Gosh, i'm so satisfied with the cake...
The cake was chocolate & vanilla topped with butter cream, and it was unexpectedly delicious!
I kept on munching on that until the next morning...

And, the looks of the elmo, it was nicely done... 
Rifqi smiled at me when he saw the Elmo, he was excited...!

The blue and red tinybite are from this baker as well!
The red velvet tiny cupcakes are so delicious, and one of my uncle's friend which were also our guest, even asked where i ordered these cakes...!


The menu

All the foods from the table are homemade by my mama & me...
And my in laws brought some foods too! And my uncle did prepared some desserts!

Some of the foods are : Lodeh, rendang ayam, kuah kacang, chicken rice, laksa johor, karipap, agar-agar santan, triffles, sate, kek batik, nuggets etc...

I wrote it here so that when Rifqi grow up he will know how much he missed, cause he is still a baby masa ni :p


Conclusion

Thank you for coming everyone who came! U made our day! :)

To Rifqi Taqiuddin, we love u!

Melur & Thyme, KLCC

Melur and Thyme is my personal favourite restaurant... Ever since i tried the ramadhan menu last 2 years, i always wanted to dine in Melur & Thyme but hasn't got a chance(1st, because we seldom lepak at KLCC; 2nd, sometimes we forgot about Melur & Thyme when we lepak there)...


But ever since i followed their instagram, i always keep an eye on their posts, they never failed to make me feel hungry... 


Another reason that i love this restaurant so much is, the obtained their Halal status from the Malaysian government, despite of how hard nowadays to find a good restaurant with the halal status!


So on a Wednesday where my husband took a day leave, we took Rifqi to KLCC and i suggested Melur & Thyme for lunch! Hee! :p


My Mushroom Swiss Beef Burger, RM32



Husband's Grilled Herb Chicken Chop, RM29


Fries for Rifqi, RM10


 




We loves all the foods and so happy with it!!!

We have tried their western foods as well as their malay dishes, i am happy with the foods!
SOOOO gonna go back to try out their pasta!

Rifqi turns 1


Hello everyone...
This is a delayed entry actually... Sorry for that...

Rifqi's actual birthday was in May, right before Ramadhan month, and the three of us went out to have a small celebration, just us, since we knew we gonna throw a party later... 

It's a very simple celebration, to introduce cake and candle to Rifqi... Lol...
We bought a slice of cake, and had late lunch at Fish & Co., and Rifqi was happy when we sand the birthday song for him...
But he's still in the mid of trial period for blowing candle, failed misserably... So, his mama just blew 'em for him! :)

Happy birthday my beloved son, I couldn't tell how much i love u, but one day, sooner or later, u'll know... ♥
Mama & papa loves u so much, Muhammad Rifqi Taqiuddin Bin Mohammad Izzat...
Semoga anak mama sentiasa bahagia dunia akhirat... Mama will always love u...  
 (you'll open my blog and read this, one day... i know :p)

A birthday we-fie

A kiss for u on the day u turned 1 ;)




I don't know why but he seems malu-malu on that day :p


"Haih... Where la is my mashed potatoes..."



Myeongdong Topokki, One Utama


We went out on a weekend, and it was Mother's Day that day (just saying)...
And I, still having post vacation blues(agaknya)... Keep on craving for Korean food, wahahaha!

Found this one Korean eatery at One Utama(new wing), Myeongdong Topokki... It is a small kiosk (but with chairs and tables), and it is very near to the Cold Storage... And it is halal certified, by the government! 
I'm more than happy to dine there!


Menu

Serves various kind of Korean dishes such as Topokki, Ramyun(yang macam magi2 tu), rice etc.
And they served various side dishes as well...

I ordered Soondubu Jigae(beef), RM 17.80; while my husband ordered Bulogi, RM 17.80...


Prices

The main dishes prices ranging from RM 15 and above. But all the main dishes are served with 3 side dishes (like any other Korean eatery) which are Kimchi(for sure) and some veges/bilis...


I am more than happy about their foods... I've tried out two branches (One Utama & Paradigm branches)... I'm a satisfied customer!
Happy trying guys!

Seoul Beauty Hauls

Hi loves! 
So after a few pages of long posts about my trip to Seoul, Korea, now it is time for the exciting part, I am about to share the skincare and beauty products i've purchased throughout my days in Korea.
Well as we all know, Korea is well known for the beauty products... 

And i have to admit one thing, all the Korean ladies are all well groomed, tidy and so fashionable regardless of their age and jobs...
Salute for that!


 So my hotel were surrounded by so many shops of all brands, as well as drugstores...
So i've been eyeing on that since day one i'm in Seoul!

However, regarding the prices, if people are telling u it is cheaper to buy Korean products in Korea, they are wrong, as, due to currency rate, the difference between the prices in Malaysia & Korea might be only a few cents...

Not my syndrome, it my papa, tokki si Rifqi!
He craved for Korean foods, haha! And since the owner of Eid Restaurant in Itaewon told him that they have a branch in Bangi, my dad pun tak zabar2 nak pergi makan situ...
