So last Monday I went..thank god I have Kim who's willingly to accompany me..After work terus cabut gi KLCC..Jalan punyelah jem nak ^&**&%$&..
Dari jauh dah nampak entrance Butik Anya Hindmarch KLCC sangatla meriahh..
They had such a great offer for those who came that day.
Additional 10% for all item and rebate of RM200!!Such a steal!!!!
Tapi too bad dah mcm x bnyak koleksi menarik yang tinggal..ecehh mcm la nk beli pun kan..
As usual yg menarik ialah the FOOD of course..they did serve sushi (my fabourite!),udon,velvet vake,lemon cheese cake,nasi lemak 50 sen (hehehe anda ingat skrip tu?),spagetti,and bnyak lagilah x ingat semue.Semuanye sedap gile especially the nasi lemak and the spagetti..Sushi pun sedap jugak hehehe.
Banyak kan makanan dorang serve.sesuaila ngn perut saya yg lapar tatkala baru blik keje
Time makan udon!
sedap kek ni tapi slack la dorang letak kelapa plak..ishhh
I also didnt know until recently saje je browse the internet psl wedding and stuff..tibe2 kluar berita dorang ni bercinta and dah nk kawen..Wahhhh...harusla kongsi kannn..
Their ceremony was held excusively secara "tertutup" dan majlis bersanding bakal berlangsung die Mandarion Oriental Grand Ballroom pada malam ni rasenye..
Yang kelessnyeee....Bagi acara akad nikah, Marion Caunter di’khabarkan memakai persalinan santun rekaan pereka fesyen terkenal, Rizalman Ibrahim (itu ok lg), manakala Vera Wang menjadi pilihan Marion Caunter ketika acara resepsi berlangsung nanti.Beberapa tetamu tertentu juga akan diterbangkan ke Kepulauan Maldives utk satu lg majlis...Waaaahhh..Makan hati lagiiiiiiiii dek oiiiii..Tapi biasela,dah name pun kawen ngn jutawan.
Tapi yg lawaknye,if u google nama "Marion Counter" a few days ago,and click to Wikipedia,adela biography si Marion ni,tapi kat bawah sekali dalam artikel tu ade la plak sorang hamba Allah mane yg pegi tambah " Marion Counter is a gold digger"..Can u imagine????Dalam Wikipedia tu beb!Satu dunia boleh baca...
Hahahah gile lawak..sapela yg dengki tu yeee?Well...i was lucky sempat baca because skrg ni dah dipadam ayat tu dari Wikipedia..bikin panasss ajee.
Anyway saya pun tgh menunggu more pics from their wedding..sapela gamaknye tukang buat pelaminnye?tukang mekap artisnye?tukang buat bajunye?(ehh Vera Wang la)..adakah Nas Great Idea?Pak Abu?Kak Sai?Sue Cantik?Nuruk Syukor?Atau nama2 baru dalam industri perkahwinan?
While Im busy preparing...planning and berangan-ing about my wedding..I can still recall some people quoting that the engagement preiod is one of the hardest part where all the bad things is going to come to the relationship.
Is this true?
I have been engaged for more than 1 month+ now and until last week I was so happily engaged until this week came. Something happened and I started to doubt myself about..
EVERYTHING..my own self,him,our relationship..is this a good and the right time to get married??
Can anyone tell if they are really2 ready to read the wedding vow and devote your self and your life to someone for the rest of their life(InsyaAllah)?
I never had a real relationship before...I never thought I would have one until I met him..But what if he's not the one?what if he turned out to be the guy that can never understands u?What if both of u keep having different opinions? Knowing myself as a VERY stubborn and KERAS hati so I know it s gonna cause us trouble.
But love is all about accepting and forgiving right?Or not right?
Uhhhhh..right now kalau ikutkan hati mcam-macam dah bisikan syaitan masuk dalam telinga ni..nak jadi solo blk la...nk tangguh weddingla..nak pg oversea la..aduhhh
Dear God, tlglah kuatkan hati hamba-Mu yg lemah ini.
Just a quick one di sekitar majlis perkahwinan Elyana dah suaminya Khairul. Antara yang terlibat termasuklah Kak Saidatulnisa, Ari Wedding Couture, Arma Wedding Couture, Hatta Dolmat, Zery Zamry.

[BEWARE.This is a long entry.Scroll down if you want to continue]
I love CHIFFON. So much that every now and then I started to buy chiffon only for my baju kurung..hihihihi.To me this material has it's own characteristic that can be worn with or without other accessories (lace,bead,embroidery..u name it lah).But of course it will look more beautiful with the touch of those accessories. That's why for my engagement I opted for CHIFFON...
So here the story goes..
So what makes me chose Kak Ina?(Just in case if you were wondering) her work is not that cheap also u know. But I saw a few of my frens did their baju with her when she was still with Dzull de Classique and I instantly felt in love. She is famous for her beadings (manik,labuci,jemeki bagai lah) Some said Dzull de Classique is not the same anymore after she left. I dont knowla whether it's true or not..only base on what people say..so I thought I wanted to try her out.
She runs her own boutique Dzihni in Bangi, which is quiet far from my house. So I decided to buy my material first and then show it to her. I remember Unaisah once told me Harisons have a type of chiffon which is cheap but still good quality. Went i went there,I found the chiffon that she was talking about..but unfortunately there were not so many colors to choose from. Lagi-lagi I myself was not very sure what type of pink I wanted. Soft Pink?Dusty Pink?Light Pink?Mauve?Dirty Pink?
I had a hard time sebenarnye to determine which one I want and which want is SUITABLE with my skin. That's the most important one. Pilih punya pilih I ended up buying this colour:
Sangat tak cantik kan? Even Kak Ina sendiri cakap tak cantik..hahahhaa
Menyesal yang teramat sangat on the other day I went to Jalan TAR and cari again.. This time I spend more time looking and browsing and scouting for the right one. Kesian Mr NAZ ikut aje..huhu.. so the search ended at MAYA Gallery. There's a lot of colors to choose from. Macam-macam PINK adaaa. Akhirnye berjumpalah dengan 2 kaler yg dah dishortliskan. One is dark pink and 1 more is a bit pale mcm mauve sket.. due2 cantik tak tau nak buat pilihan. So I took both colors out and letak atas meja. Sabo je SA tu layan aku.wahahahah. Mr NAZ pun pening.
But kebetulan in the kedai ade sorang designer (Masyallah I swear I knew him from some where) tapi sumpah tak ingat nama die.. ntah ke Michael Ong, Bill Keith or sape tah..but he looked so familiar.
The SA asked him which one is right for me. Instantly he said the dark pink, because it will enhance my skin color he said...He also said that the other color is sweet but at night it will become pale. So at the moment I know which one to choose. Since the other color is also nice i bought it also but its for my veil. That's why if you perasan my baju and my veil are from different color but its not that noticeable.
So setel bab kain. Nak hantar plak ke Butik Dzihni ke Bangi,blh tahan jauhnye campur sesat2 lagi. She is so soft spoken orangnya when we arrived. She is so experienced and tahu ape yg kite nak. Tak abis cakap lg die dah tau. But mind u, if u are the kind yang tahu ape u nak and susah nk terima pendapat orang so u will face a bit problem because Kak Ina tends to do it "her own way" mcm part lengan actually die strongly suggest mcm ni, but i nak mcm tu..kain nak mcm ni..die nak buat mcm tu..so u kene strong sket la..
The problem with me is..I have a LOT of inspirations..
tang kain je ek..heheheh
Saida in Rizman Ruzaini's

Anna Kendrick in Elie Saab's
I really love to have some laces patched on my baju so Kak Ina suggested border lace and I agreed. After design dah confirm, she said she would took a month to do it. So oklah.
Aku pun balik umah dengan suka hatinye.
A month passed by..
My baju tak siap lagi..Aku dah risauuuuuuuuuuuuu..my event is on the 5th Of Nov but 30 Oct baju pun x siap lg..aduhhh..i need at lest a few days more to alter sini sane kan..Ini bab aku paling takut sekali,kalau baju siap lambat pastu ade yg x kene nak alter x sempat.
Akhirnye 1hb Nov siap jugak baju tu. Hari Isnin. Satu problem plak dari tempat keje nak meredah jem semua nk ke Bangi..memang dugaan jugakla. Sampai dalam pukul 8 malam lebih jugakla. Kesian kak Ina tunggu dgn anak die.
Dari luar I can see my baju alreaady..berdebar gile ok! When I tried it...oopsssss..ketat kau! especially bab lengan..senteng plak tuh..xkan aku dah gain weight kot?Harusla alter kannnn..malangnye 2 kali alter still ketat..so I have to bear with it. dah start tensen dah mase tuh.. Aku beli kain sampai 6 meter sepatutnye its MORE than enough utk badan aku yang kecik ni.Takkan xde bajet lebih sket kot just in case kene alter kan? Time tu nasib baikla ada Mr NAZ yang asyik tried to calm me down and pujuk me saying that dari pandangan mata die,nampak takdela ketat sgt,in fact ok je. I was so menggelabah orediiii.
Lagi satu bab kain die. Aku takdela plak kata kene buat ape2 beading kt bahagian bawah..Die buat jugakk..And the lace part on my hem,lengan and leher is actually cantik but mcm terover sket kekerawangannya.
So after dah discuss and made payment,we all pun balik. To conclude,ade few things nak share kt sinila:
Tak puas hati sgt sebab lengan ketat dan senteng
Kain supposedly to be simple flowy je tapi dah jadi bermanik2 plak..so extra charge kat situ.
I specifically told her not to letak shoulder pad or kalau nk letakpun,letak yg NIPISSSS je.Tapi in the end die letak gak.Tebal plak tu.
So far itu ajela,tp overall dalam 70% la satisfied sbb sume kate cantik!hihihihi..Tapi kan...my total cost of baju actually is MORE that if I did with Unaisah. Why? (By the way Unaisah quoted around RM6xx-RM7xx but my baju now cost me RM8xx..
I used more expensive chiffon material than the one Unaisah initially suggested.
The border lace Kak Ina bought for me is more expensive.
Kak Ina charged for my veil and Unaisah doesn't.
Overall,eventho I was kinda puas hati with Kak Ina I would still hope that I did my baju with Unaisah instead. I dont know why but I know that she can pull it off! But its ok.Alhamdulillah la kan. Nothing bad happened. There's always another time.
For my wedding I already confirmed to do my baju nikah with Unaisah.YESSSS!!!Finally. Despite of her busy schedule,she still able to do my baju.Yahoooooo..Saya berbunga keriangan skrg.
Ok.This post is so long oredi.Got to go now. Kene pikir design utk baju nikah plak..hihihi..
Its really hard u know if u dont hv initial or rough idea of how u want your dress to be..
Remember this post? Actually this my inspiration..This is the pic that I showed to my designer-tak-jadik-for-baju-tunang ..Unaisah Azlan. She's the nicest I tell u! So kind she even told me where to get cheap but nice chiffon.
We were half way of discussing my engagement dress until she even drew me 2 sketches of my dress:
Errr..I dont know if its ok to show this sketches because I didnt end up doing my baju with her,if its not proper,some one pls tell me yaaa..
At first I told her that I want a simple baju kurung moden with laces and drapes (just like my inspirational dress)..hahaha DRAPES?I cant even imagine how la baju kurung moden nak letak drapes..but the sketches turn out to be without the drapes because I wasn't creative enough to tell her how i want the drapes to be on my dress. So..sketch itu pun terhasil lah. The pic of the lace is actually the one that she would use if I didnt opt for border lace.
Both sketches similiar design cuma lace lain and skirt slightly different. left skirt, is a gored mermaid skirt (potong panel) while right skirt straight full skirt with a simple drape.
I told her my budget and she was so kind enough to calculate the total cost including the kain and where to get it at a cheap price. The sketch no 1 cost a bit more that no 2 because it's using border lace around 5' kalau tak silap. Yg no 2 is using the lace like in this picture:
I just heart them both.To me sesuai sangat utk baju tunang. Boleh pakai banyak kali.
The discussion took place in August and we stopped for a while since masing2 busy and tlupa sekejap psl baju ni. Until one fine day in October I remembered and made a tough decision to change my designer since its a bit costly to do it with Unaisah eventho I love her design (and her!), her PR, her professionalism and all the review i've read about her is just so GOOD. Nothing bad at all.
Seeing all the dress she made in her blog just made me to want her more.. But unfortunately I decided with a very heavy heart to change from Unaisah to Kak Ina. I even text Unaisah to say Im sorry that couldnt make it and why cant i..To my suprised she was so kind to still reply me (after all the energy,time and idea that she has invested in me..heheh) and wish me the best. I then promised to have her for my nikah (InsyaAllah) to do my dress instead (and yap...I will). For those who still tercari-cari sape nak jadi designer for your hari bahagia,please consider her. But dengar2 she's already fully booked sampai Nov'11..fuhhh laku mcm goreng pisang panas! Well,but if u are really keen of having her,try to ask first,maybe who knows it might be your luck that she can still slot u in!
So berakhirlah cerita with Unaisah and bermula lah kisah dgn Kak Ina (previously from Dzull de Classique)
