Lazy Sunday :)

Posted by zuliana_me |

What a lazy Sunday for me today. I'm even writing this while lying on my couch. Hehe..

Hey, at least I'm doing some readings today after feeling guilty of buying a lot of books and not actually read them.

A few days ago when a friend tagged us on fb about a book fair, Huda said, "it was as if we were bookworms". Haha... I do bookworming iaitu simpan buku sampai berulat. Lol..
Now being 37weeks pregnant, I hope it's not too late for me to start reading.

I almost finish reading the pregnancy book given by my mother-in-law. I already finished reading all the magazines i just bought yesterday and now left with only one more book to go...that is the 'Economix'. Haha.. It's a real fun reading as it's actually in comic form so it works well for lazy people like me.

My mom& lil sis are in Vietnam for holiday and they are coming back home tomorrow. Yeay! I hope they shop a lot of clothes so I can *steal some from them. Hehe... Poor dad has to stay at home to look after me as my hubby is away in Kemaman.

Ok, gotta continue reading my book now. Have a great day!

Pakej kahwin!

Posted by zuliana_me |

Assalamualaikum... Hi... Apa khabar? It's Saturday evening and even though I spent this whole morning sleeping, I'm really glad I've finished most of the tasks that I'd planned for today like fetched lil sister from school, did laundry, cleaned the house & cooking. So yeay! Hehe... :)

I'm getting married by the end of this year, Insyaallah...
My mom initially wanted to take Qareezma Design a.k.a Elwai (my big brother's wed consultant) as my wedding consultant but I said I wanted to do it all by myself. Tak sedar masa tak cukup semua. Haha...

So here's the story of my "estimated-two weeks-wedding journey" before I finally decided to take Qareezma Design. Why is it called Wedding Journey? That's because I actually dragged my legs to many bridal boutiques around KL, where my mom had to follow and helped me to decide. The results: NONE!

Mak ku bercita rasa tinggi yea... She wants Hatta Dolmat! She kept comparing all the dresses in the boutiques to Hatta Dolmat's. Haha... mana boleh macam tu.. Tak dapat la... I'd earlier called Hatta Dolmat and asked about the pricing and all. RM5000 harga untuk tempah jahit baju Nikah (tidak termasuk kain). Baju nikah yea tuan2 puan2...bukan wedding dress. Wow... kalau saya jutawan nak la jugak.. but maybe soon! By the way, Hatta Dolmat sounded really nice on the phone especially that I had his cute face pictured on my mind that time. Haha! ;p

 Please tell me how can I not like Hatta Dolmat's design? It's freaking GORGEOUS!
Finally, my mom and I found this one boutique in Ampang Park that had absolutely gorgeous wedding dresses! Really! I felt like wanna buy them right then and there! The prices were not so bad with that very good quality... RM2800 and above.

MURAH?? cakap macam orang kaya je kan... haha! But since I'm not that rich YET!, I decided to find another alternatives. I initially planned to make my own wedding dress and just send it to tailor but then again I'll have to deal with lotsa things when I don't have that much time. 

Baju kat Ampang Park tu lebih kurang macam ni.Cantik kan? rm2800...Harga pun cantik kan?Haha...

So that time, my check list was all a blank sheet!Except for photographer, I've booked Mazelensa which I think is Amazing!  Hehe... :)

By the end of the day, my mom already got tired with all the wedding dress and catering hunting so she told me that she's going to meet Lutfi from Qareezma Design. I was like Okay... So the next day, there we were in Qareezma Design office in Wangsa Maju, very near to my office. Boleh jalan kaki. huhu..

All I can say is Qareezma Design may just have evolved/ changed a lot since my brother's wedding 3years ago. What I like most about them is they will make a new wedding dress & according the design that I want! Kain nanti kitorg pilih sendiri kat Jakel. YEAY!!! Baju nikah pun nanti diorang jahitkan free! Lutfi pun sangat tak berkira okay... Sabar jela my mom mintak itu ini...haha!

 So here's the design that I would like to have for my wedding dress.
Di bawah adalah contoh-contoh Pelamin dan meja pengantin di Qareezma Design/ Elwai. Semua bunga hidup yea...yeay! However, I do have some ideas to be added on the Pelamin design so hopefully it'll look better. ;)

 Macam cantik pulak tema hitam putih kan? I LOVE!

Ok, thanks for reading! Next post I'm going show a make up tutorial. Take care!

Antara malu & hipokrit.

Posted by zuliana_me |

I think there should be an award for the word "hypocrite" as it seems to be the most frequently used word by Malays. As I'm a Malay, that's what I see. 

It was about 10years ago when I was fourteen had I encountered and familiarized myself  with the word "hypocrite". Magazines and newspapers would feature some celebrities or "randomly picked teenagers for some meaningless column just so to meet the number of pages required". Every single time had I read the columns, the featured personalities would then picked "hypocrite" as the most disgusted loathed trait. I just didn't really understand the word.

Since then, the word hypocrite has gained its popularity and even more now. 
In my little world, NO ONE wants to be a hypocrite. They would do anything not to be one. Their lives depend on it. Everyone's life is valued by that, at least that's what they think. They eat, talk, shit and sleep with anti-hypocrite ware switched ON. Like a detainee in their own kingdoms, they confused. They think they are free but a kingdom is just a kingdom, not the world. I'm not excluded.

Now I'm not fourteen anymore. I don't just swallow what ever people shove into my brain.
I dare to question. I dare to dare.
They have misused the word hypocrite!

They say:
If you are shy, you are either naive/ pretending!
If you don't curse you are not free.
If you be nice, please stop acting!
If you talk politely, damn you are hypocrite!

They think:
If you laugh and talk loudly, you rule!
If you proud of doing bad things, you're good.
If you go against the world, you are a free man. (erm..maybe.haha)
If you wear less, you are cooler.

This is what the word hypocrite means now. It means the exact opposite to shyness. It means you are bad, I'm good! Again, I'm not excluded.

Happy Ramadan. My Allah bless our souls.

What's funny in a weird way...

Posted by zuliana_me |

Hellios, everybody.. anybody... ECHO..!
Yeah, I'm damn bored. I've been wanting to write this post a few days ago but if I was not too busy, I was lazy; spending my time on the couch watching tv, changing channel and hating it. LOL...(sorry if it's not funny).
I was planning on writing something informative but since I didn't jot down my thoughts and with my brain only the size of peanuts, I could not remember. So, yeah honey pies...this will be another lame but I hope still-funny-post from me. 

I've been wondering over some issues that I thought were kinda ridiculous. Lemme tell you what are they.

1# Funny/ Weird:
Beyonce's alter ego is Sasha Fierce. I really don't understand why on earth would Beyonce need an alter ego that looks and acts exactly like her real self. Both like gold colored clothings, blings, fabulousity, and sky touching high confidence. I'm just thinking that if you wanna create an alter ego wouldn't it better when it is out of the world & totally the opposite of the real you? So that you will bring something new to the audiences.

Left: Sasha Fierce                                      Right: Beyonce Knowles
Or either way around.....

To compare this with Sacha Baron Cohen's alter egos, it'd be a laughing matter. Sacha's alter egos are all bout laugh anyway...

Ali G - An English "wannabe" (someone who wants to be something they are not) rapper.

2# Funny/ Weird:
I heard this one on the radio when Miley Cyrus said that her mom sang unbelievably terrible that should stop right away. Wow, I was about to say the same thing to Miley. LOL. So, I vote this one as funny!

3# Funny/ Weird:
Can someone tell me how can Cougar Town, Glee and Two and A Half Man be better than the super awesome How I Met Your Mother? I mean, seriously. Huda, I thought we were humour-soul mate-made in heaven! You betrayed me honeypie. I'll eat you now. Burrpp...

P/S: Glee: reminds me of myself back in school.
       Cougar town: reminds me of myself. Excitement &kelam kabut. Bukan bahagian gatal tu yea tuan-puan..
       HIMYM: reminds me of the kinda friendship that I'm longing for. I have one actually.

That's all babeh!~

Sleeping Beauty

Posted by zuliana_me |

Yeah, I definitely feel like a "just-woke up-sleeping-beauty". Just skip the word beauty if you disagree, not that I care...or do I? Hehe.. I haven't been updating this blog for almost two months now which is equivalent to two years in blogging world which explains the post title: "Sleeping Beauty"...You can see the connection, can't you?

So, I've been busy with works this couple of months. I had a two-weeks training in Bangkok which was AwEsOmE (please imitate jim carey's voice) coz I met some great & friendly people. Then we had a big client came to the lab so it was kinda busy and now we have tonnes of works still. I'm very grateful but I think I'm now living a routine life & for that, I only have myself to blame.

Today I'm not going to complain bout my routine life but I'm going to share a bit bout my AwEsOmE training in Bangkok. Basically, I'd made some new friends, the hotel room was very nice and I went to the town for shopping even though I initially reluctant to go due to the previous chaos erupted in Bangkok. 

I loved it in Bangkok. Thailand people were very nice and soft-spoken, my friends there were all funny especially Bob (He acted & sounded like Andrew Zimmerm! Seriously...) I laughed and smiled almost all the time, even during class coz the trainer, Nathan Hutchinson was really cute.

From the left: Bob, Nathan, Panot, myself, Nie, Wong, Anonymous, Chao & Bruce

Bob & Bruce were wondering why Asian girls (or guys in that case) tend to put up "peace" sign every time posing for the camera. I said it's simply because we didn't know how to pose like a model. Thus, here as seen in picture above is them trying to give us some tips on how to give creative poses.

Panot was being super nice to accompany the three of us to Bangkok's shopping malls and flee market. It was really fun! I also took some pics at the market.

Haha...sempat ambil gambar abang hensem berbaju hijau lagi...;) & I loved the pink taxis! Tuktuk (motorbike taxi) tak sempat nak naik.

I was lucky to have a happy-go-lucky girl classmate, Nie, during the training. She was a genius. Bob often said to me in the lab: "Mulan (Nie) is creating a Frankenstein" or  "She's a rocket engineer".

P/S: When you are an engineer, you complain bout how tiring and time-consuming your life is; you wish you were a doorman. If you were a doorman, you'd complain how boring & tiring your life is. 
Does this make any sense to you?
