Peraduan Lux Fabulous With Fazura!

Last week I was a bit busy. With work and all. Sedikit tak terkejar. Balik keje terus pengsan huhu..

Dapur pun x berasap.

I even had to turn down 1 invitation which is the George Calombaris one. Couldnt make it due to unforeseen circumstances.

Anyways, the good part is i am able to join this!

Peraduan Lux Fabulous With Fazura!

Rase sape yg x kenai Fazura dok? Abaikan gosip2 dan kontroversi yang pernah melanda dirinya dahulu, Sekarang die makin aktif dengan filem baru dan juga menjadi jurucakap bagi produk2 kecantikan. Yes she is a beauty I dont deny that.

That's why bile dapat invitation to attend this event, I jumped at it right away!

I still remember during late 80's i saw this commercial of Lux by Fauziah Ahmad Daud (Kak Ogy). She was one of the spokesperson for LUX soap and I really adore her. I saw the video on youtube but i guess not proper to put it here since she is already in hijab. Kalau nak tgk carik sendiri k. Hehe

Rasenye Fazura is a good strategy to introduce this contest by Lux. It is called "Lux Fabulous Contest". Senang sangat contestnya, cuma perlu menyusun 5 gaun Fazura yg kebanyakan direka oleh pereka terkenal Rizman Ruzaini mengikut turutan yang and rasa paling popular.

Jika anda dapat meneka dengan turutan paling hampir dengan padanan keseluruhan, anda berpeluang memenangi Perodua MyVi.





Miss Fazura sedang berucap.





Miss Gorgeous, ain't she?


Actaully hadiahnya bukan itu saje ye, yang menang MyVi tu hadiah UTAMA. Hadiah pertama plak berpeluang memenangi salah satu dari 5 Vespa. Tempat kedua berpeluang menonton tayangan filem "Manisnya Cinta" bersama Nur Fazura yang dijadualkan ditayang pada 11 Disember 2014. Dan akhir sekali 50 pemenang tempat ketiga blh memenangi bekalan produk Lux selama setahun. SETAHUN bak kaoooo.. 

To me,sangatla x rugi kalau nk join contest ni, Cara nye mudah. Samada daptkan borang penyertaan di kedai kedai terplih berhampiran anda, ataupun lawat saja laman Facebook Lux disini:


Tapi jangan lupe sertakan bukti pembelian minimum Lux sebanyak RM20 di dalam satu resit semasa anda ingin menyertai pertandingan ini.

My Turkey Trip Part 6

Ohhhh penyakit malas dah kembali.

Sebelum sume memori hilang dari ingatan,baik tulis je eventho simple je.

After Cappadocia kami menuju ke Pamukkale. Another region. Another 10++ hours in journey by bus.

Dekat Pamukkale ni kami nak tengok satu tempat je, Kota Hierapolis.

Sampai dalam pukul 4 atau 5 pagi mcm tula, serious mata dan muka dah rabak sebab penat yang amat dan mengantuk gile2. Disini kami x bermalam di mana2 hotel sebab tour mmg utk 1 hari saje tp kami diberi bilik hotel untuk mandi segarkan badan dan juga breakfast. Kemudian lepas tu, tour diteruskan under agensi yg sama juga.  Pamukkale ni kecik je tempatnye dan mcm bandar mati pun ada.

Kita layan gambar saje la ye. X larat nk tulis panjang2.





Ini ketika berada di Kota Hierapolis. Ada runtuhan yang mempunyai sejarah mcm kalau disini ada tinggalan makam yg dah berusia ratusan tahun.









Our tour guide for the day, Mr. Ali. Very funny man but very informative.





I really love seeing all the ruins but the rest of the group mcm x berminat so kami teruskan pg ke kolam air panas.








Kat sini namanye The Travertines of Pamukkale.

Tour guide mmberi arahan kami akan berjumpa kembali dalam masa 1 jam di tempat yg telah ditetapkan. Tapi nak ke tempat tu mmg kene meredah lauan air panas travertines tu. Kene tanggal kasut dan berkaki ayam.
Malangnya sampai disini ada salah seorang ahli rombongan xnak plak kerana sebab2 kesihatan katenye. Jadi x tercapaila impian nk merasa air panas sebalikny kami kene amek laluan teksi nk pg ke tempat perjumpaan. To be honest, i was a bit frustrated. Dah diberitahu pasal aktiviti ni awal2 lg tp bile dah smpai katenye tak tahu. Macam macam ragam. Sabo jela.









So sementara nak abiskan masa, kami bergamba gamba sajela. Abis tour ni agak awal dalam pukul 2 mcm tu. Sedangkan bas nak pulang ke Istanbul is at 8.30pm. Kene menunggu la jawapnya. To me normal la bende2 mcm ni, tunggu menunggu ni tp ada la yg dah bermasam muka. Sabo jela. Pegi ramai2 ni x dinafikan best dan meriah tp ragam nya pun meriah jugak. Bila badan dah penat sume bende tak kene. Lawak juga bila difikirkan. Tapi xpelah, move on!

Pukul 7.30pm shuttle bas dtg dan kami dibawa ke stesen bus utk pulang ke Istanbul. Another 12 hours journey. Cant wait to go back to Istanbul. Rasenye kalau x dtg Pamukkale ni pun xpe. Ini pun dah buang itinerary ke Ephesus. Hanya pg Istanbul, Cappadocia dan Pamukkale saje. Tapi ini pun dah mintak ampun penat ya amat. Next time pg mmg nk try amek flightla. 

Oklah bersambung di next entry. Babai.

XOXO

Sunsilk Lively Clean & Fresh- "Cerita Hijabku Bersama Sunsilk"

Recently when one of Malaysia celebrity made a sudden change on her appearance, it caused a bit of chaos and I have to admit it kinda shocked me too. But all in all it's for a good cause and somehow I am very grateful inside.

I myself is new with hijab. I only started late last year and even know I am still trying to get the hang of it. But if we observe closely, hijab among the celebrities is very common right now. More and more of them have started to don a hijab. It does not give any bad effect to their appearance in fact I think they look even prettier and more appropriate.

I know the issues when it comes to hijab and women is cleanliness or hygiene. How are you supposed to maintain it when it is sweaty and stuffy under your hijab. It is a challenge but there is always a solution. You see wearing a hijab is not only done because it's God's instruction to do so. But indirectly, the fact that you are covering your hair means you are covering it from other bad stuff too, like dust, smoke, and direct sun rays.

 I still remember one of shampoo tv commercial that potrays women in hijab. How cool is that? Advertising a shampoo that is obviously meant to be used on our hair but no hair is shown in the commercial. Wardina Safiyya acted in it and it became a phenomenon even long after because it is the first of it's kind and if I'm not mistaken in the world! Such a "out-of-the-box" kinda thinking.

When this shampoo brand called Sunsilk created this range Clean & Fresh, it really answers all doubt. And I was lucky enough to be invited to "Cerita Hijabku Bersama Sunsilk" a campaign held to also announce Heliza Helmi as its brand ambassador. This event was held at Westin Hotel followed by Majlis Berbuka Puasa. It's been a while since I last went to this kind of event therefore I was pretty excited.

Accompanied by my BFF from http://secretdiaryofaliayazid.blogspot.com Mrs. Alia we went straight from our office (luckily we work very near to each other) and Alhamdulillah managed to reach the venue not long after the media registration was opened.




When we arrived, the photoshoot was being conducted.



Not to let go this opportunity, I grabbed the ambassador Heliza Helmi to take her pic with me. She is such a cutie even in real life. Very friendly and down to earth.



Around 6pm we were invited to the Brand Ballroom where all these green settings and lighting really brought the mood.





While waiting, as usual we happily took a picture of ourselves. Or what people call it these days? S.E.L.F.I.E?? Hehehehe.





Not long after that, the emcee of the day, Teh Syuhada Sarip started the event with some introduction about Sunsilk and what the event is all about. I never met her in person but man, she is so funny and talkative too. (Daaaaa that's why she's an emcee Dila!)







Heliza Helmi, brand ambassador of Sunsilk Lively Clean & Fresh, takes the audience through her meaningful journey with Sunsilk, illustrating the support the brand has given her in pursuing her dreams.. Here's what she said during the Q&A session:


"Every hijabi experiences a unique set of hair care problems that comes with wearing a hijab. As a woman who wears hijab, I’ve always been concerned about the smell of my hair after a whole day out, and this affected how confident I felt about myself. Beyond the fact that Sunsilk had hair care range specifically for hijabis, this is also a brand I feel an affinity with, as I’ve grown with the brand, not only career-wise, but also in terms of my confidence. After all the opportunities from working with Sunsilk all these years, I am truly honoured that I am now the Lively Clean & Fresh brand ambassador".

It really interesting how she copes with all her duty not just as a singer, actress, image consultant, humanitarian, and this new role as Sunsilk ambassador and still look fresh all day.

I myself is a user of Sunsilk Clean & Fresh range. Even before i wear a hijab. However this range is specially created for women in hijab, Sunsilk Lively Clean & Fresh and was co-created with world-renowned scalp expert Francesca Fusco to give hijabis a clean and refreshed scalp. Enriched with Vitamin Citrus Complex, this variant was created to remove build-up excess scalp sebum, subsequently refreshing the scalp with just one wash. This give me a refreshing feeling throughout the day.


We were also entertained by Najwa Latif. I secretly adore her for her humbleness and her music.



Good news for you hijabis out there!

Sunsilk Menemanimu Sejak Tahun 2000 is Sunsilk’s digital campaign for this year, where women who have used Sunsilk are invited to share their untold stories and memories of using Sunsilk on the brand’s local Facebook page.

The grand prize winner will be awarded with a cash prize of RM20,000 to achieve her aspirations.

So Many Things, So Little Time

Assalamualaikum dan Hi!,

First thing, would like to express my deepest condolences to the family of Allahyarham Datuk Sharifah Aini, who passed away on 5th July 2014 (7th Ramadhan) due to lung complication. May her soul rest in Jannah. Amin.

And shortly after that i was shocked to hear another news on the passing of Linda Rafar's son, Rezaimen Keiflin due to chronic tumor.

Innalillahiwainnalillahirojiun.

From Allah we came and to Him we shall return.

Not to forget so many other sad and shocking news of rapes, murder and war around the world make me think, is my world a safe place anymore?
