But will post these pix quickly as i’m trying to blog about my regular day more.
Forced myself to run to Centro hair salon this week cos my roots were 2 inches terrible. Celine and her team were so accommodating as to wrap my feather hair extensions i got in Bali FOUR times just so i could keep it.
Should. Really. Adjust. Necklace. Before. Pictures.
My hair is blue now! I don’t think i’ve ever had my hair blue before… turquoise yes, but not blue.
Today’s work outfit was NOT keterlaluan colourful cos i had a meeting with Microsoft and tried to dress a bit more seriously :p
I worked through my time in the salon. Emails never end.
Celine promised me i’d be done in time for my appearance on BFM that night
and she kept to her word. I left Gardens at 6:50pm and managed to reach the studio at 7:40pm

I’m having the most insane two weeks coming up. Baby was shaking her head while copying my schedule down, “Crazy wei.” I’m trying not to freak out at all the things i’m scheduled to do… and force personal time for myself at night. Like now. I really want to blog about my birthday week before i never!
OH by the way i’m going on air on BFM 89.9 tomorrow night (Wed) at 8pm to talk about KinkyBlueFairy.
Ok announcement over. Back to my birthday week!
I had such a great week thanks to everyone who crossed my path to have all these meals with me and connect.
The day after my birthday (last Wednesday) i had a lunch meeting with Christine from Bodytone (who bought me birthday lunch thank you!), office, then went to Steph and Louis’ apartment for dinner.
Steph was to pass me a whole bunch of her organic handmade Slim Sabun soaps for an event (that Baby has been working on) and we decided to have dinner. Steph suggested a potluck and i planned to cheat and bring something over that i’d buy (cos i’m too busy with work on a weekday to cook!), and she ended up single-handedly making a 5-course dinner of apple and cheese salad, seared scallops with italian sausage, wagyu beef cooked tatsuya style, potatoes and dressing, chocolate pudding, AND a surprise ice cream cake that we had with cognac.
Louis helped by putting on the timer on his phone for the seared scallops.
I rarely eat steak nowadays, but when i do, it has to be this. Steph was telling me where they buy their meat (from some butcher that supplies to all the hotels in KL), and Louis was like, “Shhh don’t tell her!” -_-
One of their hedgehogs that i didn’t hold cos i’m not keen on prickliness, and my surprise birthday ice cream cake! I was like “AWWW YOU GUYSSSS” and Steph made me take the rest of it home (half of it). I was scrambling through the freezer over the weekend looking for something sweet, spotted it and thought, “Oh my god! I forgot about this! YES! Score! Steph you’re the best! Oh man i love my birthday!”
Yeah i’ve been craving for sweets and coffee ever since i stopped drinking so much -_-
Malaysian fashion designer Syomir Izwa has just released his Raya/Resort 2015 RTW Collection, which was “largely inspired by the glorious migration of the people of Ceylon to the beautiful land of Malaya, then being governed by the British, in the 19th Century.”
The pieces are modest and contemporary while setting off a fashionably defiant vibe. A display of festive shades via colour blocking is teamed with the use of a specially-commissioned oriental print and organza panelling seen throughout the collection. Syomir returned to using organic bamboo/cotton after receiving rave reviews from his previous collection created with the same material.
The Raya/Cruise 2015 RTW Collection comprises of nine sets including a men’s baju melayu available in seven colours, and a jacket. After much deliberation, i think my favourite is the Kaseh set! Which one’s yours?
Arjuna S.I Baju Melayu Set (S, M, L) – RM 420
Available in beige, grey, orange, green, turquoise, purple & black
*sets do not come with sampin
The collection celebrates contemporary coolness and elegance with a modern twist, and strongly reflects Scha’s fun sense of style.
Colour blocking with bold and pastel shades is evident throughout the 11 designs, with exposed zippers lending a touch of edginess to most. The use of interesting silhouettes will not escape your attention – watch out for cute bell sleeve cuffs, flared sleeve tops, a merging of skirts and pants, structured skirts, and asymmetrical shapes.
I got two pieces from the collection myself, and am really pleased with the fabric used and flattering cuts.
Scha: “I am thrilled to share my fashion sensibility with my fans and fashionistas everywhere. It was important to me for the collection to offer separates as I wanted FashionValet customers to have fun with fashion and experiment creating their own looks.”
I got the top above in pink because it’s sleeves look so fun and… it’s PINK.
My pink obsession continues…
