Event: Ngabuburit with Sushi Tei

Assalamu’alaikum gorgeous!

It’s show time!

These are the photos of the event that was posted earlier in HERE.

Overall, we had a pretty great day! Although we had to suffer on our way to the far far away Mall (Gandaria City): unknown route – got lost – broken TransJakarta on a flyover! – tired legs. But everything are worth it.. At the end. πŸ˜†

Have Fun at German Book Day

Assalamu’alaikum gorgeous!

These photos were taken around 2 weeks a go, when I was visiting German Book Exhibiton at Goethe Institut, Jakarta. The books were written by Baden-WΓΌrttemberg’s authors. I love to see those books, especially the children books. πŸ˜€ I love the illustration! So funny and unique. πŸ˜€

Fun Break Fasting Dinner with Pretty Hijabers

Assalamu’alaikum gorgeous!

Pfiuuuh, finally I could write about the break fasting event that held by HijabScarf on monday, 23rd August 2010 at Foood Kulture, Urban Kitchen, Plaza Indonesia. It was so much fun, and it could be as a lovely shock therapy for me because all of the participants was very well dressed! Bravo! I dunno that there are so many stylish hijabers out there.. πŸ˜† well, if I’m comparing with my university folks who are wearing conventional hijabs (you know, long 2 layer hijab, very loose abaya, A-line long skirt, etc), of course.. πŸ™‚

I went to that event with one of my best friend, Liza Ayu. When I first saw her at that day, I can’t stop giggling.. πŸ˜† She never wore anything like that! She was wearing stylish hijab!! πŸ˜† and also a pair of midi heels.. hahahahahaha, what a day! πŸ˜€

Before we went to the event, we still got a chance to take few pictures in the toyland.. I always love to see toyland in a mall, because it gives a different ambience to the area.. So cute! πŸ˜‰

It Was A Great Day!

Assalamu’alaikum gorgeous!

today is a great day for me.. Because I could spend my full day with my fiance.. mrgreen It Was A Great Day!
We go to Plaza Indonesia to see Indonesia Islamic Fashion Fair (IIFF) 2010. Unfortunately, there’s no fashion show today, but we could see many muslim designer’s booth that placed in several area of Plaza Indonesia. I just took very few photos of the clothes, because we’re busy watching the perform of Dik Doank and kids from Kandank Jurank Doank Community. πŸ˜€ They are very great! I’ve recorded some of their performances. I’ll upload it later on my YouTube channel as soon as I can.. πŸ˜‰

Another exciting thing is that I could be able to wear a different style of hijab today.. πŸ˜€ It was really weird, because before I met my fiance, I was taking a bus to take me to our meeting point, and the people was staring at me.. Especially at my hijab! πŸ˜† (FYI, I’m not fasting today during the period, so my fiance ask me to meet me in the middle area between our houses. i live in Bekasi, and he lives in Kebon Jeruk. So sometimes it’s okay for me to meet him in the middle area). Anyway, I know it’s unusual, but I don’t have any lack of confidence when I wear it.. πŸ˜€ Yeah that’s me, I was born with a huge self confidence.. πŸ˜† Lucky me.. 😎

By the way, I wanna show you my today’s edited photos using Picnik. I’ve been using this online photo editor for a year. It’s very handy, and easy may I say. I still use Adobe Photoshop sometimes, if I’m in a very good mood of creating something (e.g. my 1st scrapbook photo ). I could possibly say that I’m quite pro with picnik stuffs.. πŸ˜€

..Me and Picnik..
