Inspiration Board: Bohemian Charm

What we must live by



Selamat malam

Monday, March 26, 2012


Hari ini adalah hari jadi seseorang.
Sudah masuk empat tahun tak berjumpa.
Entah apa khabar dia.
Selamat harijadi, kamu.
Saya doakan kamu bahagia, gembira dan sudah jumpa apa yang kita pernah bincangkan suatu masa dahulu.
Take care.

Inspiration Board: Keep calm and light a bonfire

Burn mafakka! Heil bonfire!


In case of a tsunami and ice blizzard (a la The Day After Tomorrow), I think I won't be able to stay alive for long. You'd probably find me dead, surrounded by my books, instead of burning them for heat.

These blokes (who for some reason are never photographed in these kinda pics) would probably fare very well for weeks if they burn their books, but I have a feeling they wouldn't hesitate to protect rather than destroy, just as much as I (my thrillers, romances and penny fictions are just as valuable as the biographies and vintages!).

We'll do it for the future generation, we will die for them!

Inspiration Board : The Selby

I have been perusing websites and magazines for ideas and inspirations for the ePad when I stumbled upon a website with pictures after pictures of stunning houses with their quirky owners.

Without much word, The Selby offers a look into the den of various people of the creative kind, and although my creative streak is close to none compared to these wizards of the right brains, I can't get enough of their houses!

Perhaps I should show the website to my parents so they understand how I envision my house to be like; not the tastful new house of a bachelorette kinda setting, but; a comfortable organized mess where I live to my standards and comfort, not others.

(with the exception of presentable lah, a tamer space than the mess in my head, for sure haha)

Here are some gorgeous pictures of what my house would look like, if only it had a soul and goes through rebirth after rebirth:

(p/s: first picture is absolut j'adore! Add in ceiling to wall bookcases and I am happy for life!)
Oh, click on picture for a larger view :)

Don't leave me

Dont' leave me
You have to forget
Everything can be forgotten
That is flying away already
Forget the time
The misunderstandings
And the time that was lost
Trying to understand how
These hours can be forgotten
Those that are killing sometimes
With whys that hurt like punches
The heart of happiness

Don't leave me
Don't leave me
Don't leave me
Don't leave me

I will offer you
Pearls made of rain
Coming from countries
Where it never rains
I will work the earth
Until I die
To cover your body
With gold and light
I will create a kingdom for you
Where love will be the king
Where love will be the law
Where you will be the queen

Don't leave me
Don't leave me
Don't leave me
Don't leave me

I will invent for you
Meaningless words
That you will understand
I will speak to you
Of these lovers
That we've seen twice
Their hearts embracing each other
I will tell you
The story of this king
Who died of not being able
To get to know you

Don't leave me
Don't leave me
Don't leave me
Don't leave me

We have often seen
Fire flowing again
From an ancient vulcano
That we considered to be too old
It seems like
Burned earth
Produces more wheat
Than a warm month of april
And when the night comes
And the sky is on fire
The black and the red
Won't go together

Don't leave me
Don't leave me
Don't leave me
Don't leave me

Don't leave me
I won't cry anymore
I won't speak anymore
I will hide right there
To see you
Dancing ad smiling
And to listen to you
Sing and then laugh
Let me become
The shadow of yor shadow
The shadowof you hand
The shadow of your dog

Don't leave me
Don't leave me
Don't leave me
Don't leave me

Inspiration Board: The simple things in life

Tuesday, March 20, 2012

Here's me sharing some stuff I have seen and fell in love with. They're so simple, cluster free and just adorable! They're not necessarily fitting for my nest, but hey they're great!
I have a feeling I might try to DIY the vertical herb pallet garden. Now where do I find such shipping pallets for free...





Inspiration Board: Book and more books!

Have you ever seen Karl Lagerfeld's home?

He has a hugggeeee section cordoned into a 2 story library of sorts, and boy oh boy it's heavenly!

I wish I had the money to outfit my house with amazing ceiling to floor book racks. If I could, books will be in the living room, my room, the library, in the kitchen, well... everywhere!

(Yes, even in the toilet too, for light reading when the bowel movement ain't- ok ok you get it hehe)

Check out these wonderful houses with orgasmic bookcases (and collection of books. arrgghhhhh!)

























And this, ladies and gentlemen, is Monseur Lagerfeld's awesomepossum library:

My 5 top quick fix

Tuesday, March 13, 2012

Hello kids!
Been a while since I wrote anything down, eh? Sorry lah korang, bukan saja-saja tak nak menulis, tapi bila berdiam diri tu maknanya samada saya memang sibuk berkerja ataupun saya sibuk bermalasan (heheh!) Dunia berputar pada kadar yang amat pantas dan saya seolah telah sama-sam terheret dalam the rat race yang tak berpenghujung. Selain soal kerja, perkara-perkara lain sekadar touch and go saja. Everything needs to be on the fast lane. Tak boleh nak tembel-tembel sangat dah skang ni.

Cakap pasal fast lane ni, korang perasan tak kadang-kadang, bila dah tak ada masa lah benda-benda nak jadi? Atau bila dah suntuk sangat nak buat sesuatu, ada je masalah hinggap? Saya pun macam tu jugak, tapi mujur lah ada yang sudi bagi petua dan kebetulan saya rajin gak baca trivia dan artikel di internet. Boleh la cuba DIY apa yang patut. Jimat masa, jimat kos, dan yang paling penting, efektif!



So meh nak kongsi sikit ngan korang, my top 5 fast fixes:





1. Vitagen
Dulu masa kecik, selalu kumpul duit nak beli sebab sedap! Sekarang saya jarang minum sebab macam tak ekonomikal hahaha. Tapi ketahuilah, botol kecik cenonet ini adalah penyelesaian kepada masalah ceri beri yang cukup pantas! Minum sebotol, dalam masa 1-2 jam, perut dah takkan meragam and your stool will become slightly harder. Berkesan untuk ceri beri versi hamburan mahupun versi perairan Terusan Suez. Works on kids and adults.

Kos: singgit. Kalau pergi doktor nak ambik charcoal pills or garam cerber tu mau 30-40 ringgit.




2. Avene Thermal Spring Water Mist
Bagi yang rajin mekap, sure tau pasal makeup fixer, benda alah yang korang spray kat muka sebelum dan selepas mekap untuk bagi makeup stay kan. Daripada korang nak membazir cari kedai mekap untuk fixer ni, baik korang pegi je memana farmasi dan beli Thermal Spring Water Mist. Ada macam-macam jenama, paling popular Evian dan Avene.

Selain jadi fixer, kita boleh jugak guna sebagai refresher. Especially untuk orang yang asal kena panas, muka merah tahap grilled lobster tu, haaa spray je mende ni untuk cool kan muka. Ada macam-macam saiz tapi yang paling sesuai 100ml / 150ml lah pasal senang nak masuk dalam handbag.


Saya guna benda ni mainly untuk moisturize my face throughout the day. Muka saya jenis kering dalam (might be slightly oily on the surface tapi lack of moisture content inside) so this mist helps that as well!



Kos: 20 ringgit lebih kat Guardian, Watson atau mana-mana farmasi sama jenis untuk saiz 150ml. Makeup fix kat MAC dalam lingkungan 80 ringgit, jenama lain ada sampai RM150!



3. Pisang
Yes, pisang, uols! Banya gila kegunaan. Dah la sedap, versatile pulak tu!

Apa, esok ada dating tapi muka tetiba berjerawat macam cendawan Super Mario? Kopek pisang, pastu guna bahagian dalam kulit tu dan tenyeh pelan-pelan ke seluruh muka (tutup mata, kalau tak, mau pedih biji mata kome!). Ulang dalam seminggu dua kali. Gatal kena gigit nyamuk pun berkesan. Ni penyelesaian selamat untuk babies / anak kecik yang kena gigit nyamuk. Kulit pisang tu akan neutralkan rasa gatal.

Nak rambut hitam berkilau? Guna pisang yang dah dilenyek sebagai mask.

Kalau korang tengah diet, carry a banana with you. Kajian mendapati bau pisang boleh tolong supress hunger pangs. Dan kalau lapar sangat, makan sebiji pisang. kenyangnya sama macam makan nasi separuh pinggan. Fuh hebat!

Kos: sesikat RM2.50 untuk pisang emas yang comel lagi lazat.






4. Lip Balm / Pelembap bibir (tak berwarna)
Ni memang best. Selamat di bibir maknanya selamat di bahagian lain! Jadi:
Kengkadang ada kawasan muka mengelupas sikit kan, macam kat hidung ke... coles sikit lip balm dengan jari, pastu sapu kat kawasan mengelupas so tak nampak sangat kelupas tu.


Last minute presentation, baru perasan muka hauk? Sapu sikit lip balm dengan jari pada kening agar nampak kemas, kemudian sapu di tulang pipi agar nampak dewy. Kalau takde lipstick, sapu lipbalm lebih sikit kat bibir dan lepas tu, coles sikit blusher, sapu kat bibir dan adun. Jangan tebal sangat blusher tu, nanti jadi bibir opera cina pulak.



Kos: dari RM3.00 untuk yang tak berjenama, kalau kat farmasi dalam lingkungan RM6.90- 14.90. Nak guna lip balm berjenama tinggi pun boleh tapi rugi lah. Guna yang biasa-biasa sudeehhh




5. Double Sided Tape & Black Clip
Okay, technically ni dah 6 benda, tapi memandangkan dua benda alah ni dikira macam geng so kita anggap satu je lah eh, hehe.


Double sided memang penyelamat! Jahitan kat hujung seluar kan mudah terbukak, terutamanya seluar slack. Kena pulak time nak meeting dengan client. Dengan double sided tape, masalah itu tidak wujud lagiiiiiii! *muka smartshop*. saya dah pernah guna double sided untuk macam-macam: bingkai spek mata terpatah, bahagian duit syiling dompet terkoyak lah...


Satu lagi, kalau pakai baju berkolar luas / boatneck atau scoopneck, elakkan dari menampakkan lurah dengan menampal sikit double sided tape pada pangkal kolar di bahagian dalam, pastu tekan supaya melekat ke dada. Pastikan ni double sided yang nipis tu. Kalau yang tebal tu nanti nampak huduh pulak. Tadaaa... tunduk-tunduk pun takde masalah!


Klip hitam tu pulak boleh jadi pencangkuk kalau tali beg tangan putus, boleh buat cable holder (google cable holder clip).




Sebenarnya ada banyak lagi quick fix lain tapi kita man-man ah ye. Next time saya share lagi. Hope these quick fixes helps you as it has helped me a gazillion times :)

Something in the way he moves

Monday, March 05, 2012

I didn't see this coming.

Okay, that would be a lie.
I saw it coming.
I have always fallen for his type.
I just didn't expect it to last this long.

I shouldn't have flirted with him. I knew nothing could've come out of it, because hoping that it does become something it isn't would mean asking too much out of something that isn't there. I knew nothing could happen, especially knowing his situation.

Yet that small moxy of a voice in the deepest corner of my heart decided otherwise. You just had to get your paws on him, dincha? Came out and showed your moxy side and now that he has gone back to the state he was before, you crawl back up into that hole of yours, leaving me with my feelings and conscience, to reason things out.

Oh well, not like I was serious, anyway.
Oh well, he ain't that good a catch anyway.
Hey, we're friends and will stay friends. Besides, I've always been his 'listener', right? What's new?

Yeah, thanks, heart.

Almost 30 and still none the wiser about these kinda things.
You see, being a late bloomer ain't that trip in the fields.

Done and done!

Thursday, March 01, 2012

Alhamdulillah, the renovation of my soon to be crashing space is kinda done. The gastronomical delight area is done, its cupboards going ceiling to floor. Security is covered too. The yard has been given the sunglas treatment and all I need to do now is to plan my finances so I can purchase the needed 'accesories' fit for a kutu-turned-corporate slugger-turned-responsible for herself adult (finally!).

Alhamdulillah, I had my first substantial bonus from the company, and this, coupled with my savings will be used to pay for the seemingly little details yet actually costing a ridiculous amount of money kinda stuff.

Feels great to have done this from scratch, on my own. Mak and bapak has been a great source of support (and they sponsored 2 main stuff for me gastronomical area, yay!), and right now I feel blessed. Excited, uncertain and crazily hurried, but blessed all the same.

Will update more on things happening, but I guess the new nest wont be ready as fast as I desire it to be since I only have weekends to work on it, and evwen then, I am tied by my parent's schedules.

However,
by hook or by crook, I must must must settle in before I turn 30! Insyaallah!
