One thing I've learnt from travelling is that there is no way things will all go according to plan. But that's when the fun starts, I've seen the most beautiful scenery. It was love at first sight! Santorini has been a life time dream and I can't stop thanking Allah for this opportunity.
And I love love love my people, my house mates in the UK. Soooo lucky to have travelled with awesome awesome friends. Love you girls!
More on this later :).
I remembered my list of "THINGS TO DO" that I made comfortably when I was at home in Malaysia and now that I'm in the UK, it serves me to remind that I have a few more to add to the list. Hehe.
And one of my wishlist is wearing trench coat on hari raya! So now, finally checked off my bucket list. Hiks. Walaupun mungkin dicerca dengan sangat hebat oleh mat salehs kat sana. Hahaha. Motif pakai baju macam ni menyeberangi lautan?
Ishhh loads and loads to blog about as usual, but when it boils down to this, nothing surfaces.
Well, life against all odds is surprisingly blissful. Till later :).
We've all seen the #followmeto series created by a Russian photographer Murad Osmann (@muradosmann), together with his girlfriend Nataly Zakxarova (@yourleo) which has gone viral with now almost 1.6 million followers on Instagram! And Instagram is hands down my favourite form of social media. It's pretty good option to manipulate a photo with various filters and publish it on the net. Hehe.
#Followmeto project was unique and sweet. The concepts are travelling with the love of your life, sharing experiences and memories for a life time. Sooo inspiring! Hence, here's one a "follow me to" kind of photo that was captured in Wicklow, Ireland. Tapi dengan Nini je lah yang mampu sekarang ni. Hahaha.
But, what if I meet someone who doesn't love to travel? Hehe. Anyway, I do hope a mutual love for travel will be one of the things that bring us together. We shall see :).
On a fun note, am just back from Dublin and most likely be sprawled on the bed resting today. Good night!
Anyways here's a bit of the very few words I can think of now (just to kill some time while waiting) with regards to our road trip to Seven Sisters on 3rd Syawal.
Lovely weather wasn't it? Honestly I didn't know the existence of Seven Sisters, so I hadn't done much research. Hehe.
Hahaha. Cuak ni sebenarnya. Kalau jatuh, sia-sia je uols! Ada orang tu siap merangkak hahahahaha. #anokkelatedibirminghae rasakan! Punyalah kau takut tapi gigih nak duduk kat tebing kan. Demi instagram material katanya. Kosser! Haaa keluar dah ayat percakapan seharian. Haha.
Oklah, back to Mr. Grey now. Hehe. And cuppa of coffee to keep me awake. Still, 5 hours to go.
Happy working peeps!
Will be going to Bristol later today to catch a flight to Dublin so have a nice day earthlings.
Selamat Hari Raya Aidilfitri
It's now half past three and I'm still up and about. Running on god-knows-what. Hehe. Haven't been able to update but I'm hoping to catch up before I'm going to Ireland this Wednesday. Initially it was the craziest and hectic preparation for my raya in Birmingham. Followed by a road trip to Mayfield Lavender field, Seven Sisters and Brighton. Then we were cleaning our new house for two consecutive days and yesterday was official recovery day, I totally collapsed hehe. Penat!
Raya di perantauan was, well, fun. Hehe. I will be writing about my raya celebration in Birmingham at some point soon, I promise! But first and foremost, thank you Mr. Mandagie for the feature! I never would have expected to be featured on your Instagram anyway. Hehe.
Love all your designs! Much love from Birmingham, UK.
And, I really really really want to wear winter coat with my kebaya on hari raya and walk 3 - 4 km in heels! Hehehe. Now that it's summer in Birmingham, so I'll be going somewhere up north in Ireland to put my winter coat on. Hahaha gigih kau kan. But I'm trying to not think too much about the fact that I don't actually have a new baju raya except that I just brought one from Malaysia which I bought last year from Jovian Mandagie RTW. Sobs.
Hiks. I love my black sequins! So anyway, how's your raya preparation going? I have never been so involved all this while for obvious reason; my mother did everything from the very beginning! Hehe. And now since I'm far away from Malaysia, I decided to join my friend Nini in Manchester to bake some kuih raya so we can feel 'that' vibe. Hehe. And I'm soooooo proud of the outcomes despite of lack of ingredients and baking tools! Hehe.
Macaron (tak berapa nak jadi hahaha)
Snowy suji cornflake
Anyway, selamat hari raya semua. Maaf zahir batin.
