Chocolate Makes Everything a Little Better!


Oh. My. God. Who doesn't love chocolate??! Mmmm mmmm goood..

Sinful is how I have always described chocolates. It always feels so nice to have chocolates melted in your mouth, delivering its wonderful taste right through your tongue, doesn't it? Mmmmm.. Well, at least that's what I think! I've always been a fan of chocs. There's just something wonderful about eating chocolates. It just makes me feel a whole lot better when I'm feeling down...I mean, how weird is that? It's just...err.. a bar of some milk and cocoa? heh. But really, pleasuring myself with chocs just makes everything a little better even when I had the most unpleasant day!


Have you heard of Dove Chocolate yet?  Well in some countries (that is in the United Kingdom, Ireland and the Middle East), it is called as Galaxy.  I've tried some Galaxy chocs before. Did you like Galaxy? Cuz I do! It's verrry creamy! But this chocs called Dove, I haven't try it yet! Not even a single bite, though it's already in the market! hehe.. So I'm ought to try it!

And the other day.. I got these babies to try for the first time... Mmmm!

Hello, Dove Chocolate!

If there’s one thing that defines Dove chocolate, it’s their silkiness. The bars aren’t that large, but they pack a lot of chocolatey-ness into each little segment! And Dove chocs last and linger, it makes the me-time moments last longer too! Ahhh... 
Dove chocolate melts quickly on the tongue, giving a thick taste of chocolate instantly! ^_^

I like thissss, Chocolate with Crispy Rice! Yummmm! 

It's true what they claimed, "Dove Silky Smooth Chocolate".. 
Do try and take a bite of their Milk Chocolate to taste the real silkiness yourself... Mmmmm! 

These are the flavors that I tried:

1. Milk Chocolate (My fave!)
2. Chocolate with Crispy Rice
3. Dark Chocolate
4. Chocolate with Hazelnut, Almond and Raisin

I think it’s great Dove is offering variety in their chocolate choices, and I’m sure there are plenty of people who will enjoy these interesting flavors, but me, I think I’m going to stick with the original milk chocolate! Mmmmm!

Do try it guys!


A Fondness for This Style

Since I had my eyes on Rizman Ruzaini latest collection the other day, I fell in love with Kaftan Dress instantly! To be honest, the first time I heard and knew about this fashion, was about a few years ago (I was still in school)... And at that time I was surprised to find out that Coach made a dress called as 'kaftan'; a word which I thought came from my mother tongue language! So I was kinda feeling a little bit proud that time, cuz they commercialized our 'baju tidur'! hehe.. (But apparently, kaftan is not originally from our land, but Persian? haha. - I just found out about this! ;p)

Oh well..anyways, I never knew that all these while, the apparel that most of us, Malaysian, wear to bed could be worn to a party or dinner or something! hehee. Even though it was already in the market, but that was the very first time I knew about this trend and fashion! Heeee.. ;p

Hmm.. But yeah, to be honest, I never really like the fashion actually.. Only certain people can pull off this style.. Tall and slender people, that is! But some say, this style is universal...everyone can wear it.. Hmm.. I don't know, it's just not to my liking... Even to bed! I don't know.. I just find it very unflattering and unattractive lah, those batik kaftans! Or so they call it as 'baju kelawar'. Hmmm... (Yes, I am thatttt gedix. I like wearing nice clothes, even at home! ;p)

(I prefer sexy lingerie...or..just a simple (pink) t-shirt by Paul Frank with "I'm Awesome" printed on it, and match it up with my hot pink Victoria Secrets sweatpants or something! ;p
Ask my roommates while I was staying in hostel.. They hardly seen me in a kaftan! Heee ;p)

So yeah, I don't really like that style. But after seeing Rizman Ruzaini's collection the other day, all of a sudden, magic happened and I realized that I do like that fashion now! That's the power of Rizman Ruzaini's touch! hehehe.. It could change my liking instantly!

Hence, I bought one for myself.. Just thought of trying this fashion, and change my sense of style a bit..

This, is a light grey kaftan dress with embroidery at the front and a loooong bow at the back. I could wear this dress with my fave shoes in the world, and my Fendi Hologram Suede Clutch. Mmm-hmm..

This dress is super feminine. I like! I really love the embroidery detailing and the long bow at the back! SO cute! This kaftan dress is from a boutique called Femi9, which I bought while I was in Mecca last 3 months. (They do a lot of pretty long dresses, I tell you! And yes, all their designs really really do suit their name, which is so Feminine!)

I really wish they open one store in here..

And I also wish that this dress comes in other colors as well. Bright colors, that is! This color is pretty dull actually.. But that's alright, because we don't really have to shine all the time now, do we? hahaha. Okayyy... I am blabbering ;p
But yeah..this dress is not meant for a grand dinner or something.. I could use this on a nice dinner date or something, kan kan? heh, my mission is to find another kaftan dresses to stock up on my dress collection.. Really hope to find one that I like, with a fantastic price tag too, of course! ;)

Adik Rintik, Kakak Borek! :p

On one fine I was doing some work on the net, somebody knocked my door.. So I opened up the door, and saw my brother in front of my bedroom door, with his Macbook Pro in his hands, and with his black man's accent, he said, "Ey yaw..what's poppin'? Whatchu doin' sis?".

And I replied, "Work? Why? What you want n*gga?" 

"I'm bored. Let's borak borak, jom? Miss you lah"

"Hmm.. Borak? Sure. What's up? Any interesting stories to share?"

... and then he went up my bed, baring, guling guling and started Facebooking and showed me some of his friends' pictures and started telling me stories.. And then he told me this and that stories..and I shared mine too.. (Btw, he is more like a friend to me.. We are not like the typical brother-sister punya style..hehe ;p And plus, our age tak banyak beza. So, I guess that's why boleh ngam dengan dia ni.. He's 19 by the way..)

And then after that..he said, "Eh..I bought this one headgear in Istanbul the other kinda looks like a turban or something.. Jom ambik gambar dengan aku nak? I wanna wear that thing.."

"Hmm...malas lah. I got work. Plus, I am not in my best look. Malas nak make up-make up ni la adik.."

"Haa make up la then.. Jom laa kakakkk. Aku tunggu. Jom la... Make up larrr, tau? Make up lawa lawa. Macam ala ala arab ke.. With all those eyeliner of yours ke or whatever you call it! And I'm with this look. And then we make an album in FB called, "Fc*ked up Arabs". I'll wear my DKNY jacket with this turban. Hahahaha.. Nak tak?"

"Gedik ahhh.. Jap lagi.. jap lagiii.. Aku nak siapkan a few stuff ni.. You do your thang first"

....and about an hour later, I was in the mood already, and all dress up for the camwhoring session with my brother! hahaha

While waiting for me to get ready.. Haha..

Oh adikku yang poyo. hahahaha ;p

The Black-and-White team!

Sumpah, adik aku ni lawak. Dengan his black man accent lagi. Adoyai.. Aku layan kan jerrr..hehe ;p

...he wanted to kiss me and show some love towards his sister..

And then I said.. "Euw, no way".
Then he replied, "Oh c'mon man.. I'm your brother. I love you. And we're siblings. What's wrong with that?"

..and I said, "Okay.. Fineeeee. Whateverr". hahahahaha ;p

He's my buddy, he's my brother.

Do we look alike? Nahhhhh...

He's 19. And she's...erm.. 21. tskk. Oh crappp.. I'm old! ;p

"Wani, wani...buat muka mahal" 
"Huh? Muka mahal? Muka mahal macam mana?" 
Hahahaha.. Itu je la muka mahal yang dapat ku pamerkan disituu..Wahahaha! ;p

Gucci versus Chanel? Which one is much more glamourous? Mine, of course! hahaha ;p

Aviator versus Blingbling. 

What's with the face lahh bro?

Dia anak mak. Saya anak bapak. Sebab dia ikut muka mak saya yang berketurunan Cina dan saya ikut muka bapak saya yang berketurunan.... cuba teka? Heheh ;p 

Si machiow dan si gedix ;p

Sepia. Adding some 60's vibe. heh

"Oh, we're in Paris!"

"Hoyeahhh.. Paris! Paris! Wooohoo!" LOL ;p

The gedix sister. ;p

And the Arab mix with N*gga brother! (he always so perasan wanting to be a half n*gga! wahahaha ;p)

And then after camwhoring session, we recorded some videos pulak! hahaha. Oh, it's really cool to have a brother yang satu kepala dengan saya lar! hehe..

Adoyai. Korang mesti dah penat tengok kami menggedik depan camera kannn. hahaha. Well..what can I say... we, the Generation Y people dan orang orang muda seperti kami memang begini. Kami jakun nampak camera! LOL ;p

P/s: Bonding session with the brother is really really nicee especially if you have a brother that's cool like mine, kan?! hehe. So how do you usually spend time with your brother? =)

P/ss: I love you, my one and only brother =)

When She Had Nothing Else Better Things To Do! :p

Last night, me and my brother had a little fun in my room..goofing around, snapping some vain pics and.....err.. we (or should I say.. most of the time, me) did a little singing.. HAHAHA.

That's what happened when you have a cool brother to be vain with! hahaha.. Oh well, I'm still waiting for the other pictures from him.. This one, I curik from his Facebook.. (Adik, sila cepat kasi kakak tengok yang lain! hehe)

It's called... "The Arab Descendant" - HAHAHAHA. Gila poyo ;p

And then..when you get so damn bored in your room, we tried to hiburkan hati sendiri dengan menyanyi a couple of songs like a complete weirdo in front of the what Mac users called a "Photo Booth". Hahaha! ;p (Yes I knowwww, I'm so weird! ;p)

Oh well.. I myself, get bored looking at it and hearing it some moreee.. (I know, I don't have the best voice in the world - so this is more like...for fun actually..) so for now, I only gonna upload one song je lah ye! Nanti korang bosan, tengok saya karaoke sorang sorang! haha.

Okayy peeps.. Enjoy the (boring) video! Eh I mean...the song.. (Don't enjoy the video because it's boring! haha ;p)

Comeee, let's sing along with me! So I won't feel stupid, nyanyi sorang sorang! Heeee

Yuppp... Go ahead. Judge away... Laugh all you want, because I allowed you to! hehehe ;p

Ok lah.. Sekian.. I just realized I have some advertorials to submit.. Oh crapp! =/
So gotta go now! Bubbyee!

P/s: After half way of recording the video, only then I notice that I wore the same top as the first tutorial video that I made few months ago! hahaha ;p

My Perfect Sunday...

My perfect Sunday is......

Oh well.. If you think spending time the whole day at the mall would be my perfect day, then you definitely have to know more about me! hehe. Yes, the malls would be nice too (especially when dad handed me some cash to splurge on. heheheh ;p)....but on a lazy days, or should I say, in actual fact, I'm actually a homebody kind of person.. I prefer staying in rather than going out and about, and spending some money on some things that I don't quite need! ;p

I think it's much more relaxing and..err... quiet-er. So yup, I prefer to stay in and curl up on my awesome bed and spending some quality time with myself, in my room..the whole day! Now, isn't that niceee?! hehe..

Yup...Thatttt, would be my perfect Sunday! Mmmm...

So these are the things that I did today!

Woke up quite early, and went out to get these silky babies at the laundry shop..

And then had my breakfast at Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf in Bangsar. It was just a quick breakfast. I had a sandwich..and then bought some magazines at the newsstand nearby..and then, went home.. (Yes, I did not stop by at any boutiques! How awesome is that? hahaha)

Been doing a little reading. Bought the Twenties Girl by Sophie Kinsella a few weeks ago, but never got the chance to read it yet.. So today, I managed to read until Chapter 9.. And flip through my fave magazine, Glamour..

Spent the evening in my room watching my fave love movie, The Notebook on my Macbook (hey it rhymes la! hehe). Ahh...I never get bored with this movie.. Rachel McAdams is so pweety! And the lovers in that movie are really really sweet too.. Wish to be like Noah and Allie until I grow old..

After Maghrib and after showered, I started my weekend beauty regime! (I thought I wanted to make it a really simple tutorial, but that video above has some weird problems that I sort of given up! Hmph. Bummer!! >_<)

And when the video isn't working out, and I have stop playing and editing it and surrendered at last, I....

Played a bit of a dress-up in my room! Hahaha.. I tried on some black and pastel colors.. Oh, and I also played around with some blazers/jackets and some waist cinchers.. I tried to look professional..hahaha..
Yup..all these are some of my working attires! Heee ;p (That's what most (girly) girls love to do before they go to some place, ey? Now who's with me?! hehe)

And when the clock strikes 11 pm, and I got tired of changing into those clothes for hours, I went downstairs and make myself a cuppa hot cocoa with marshmallow, before hitting the sack.. Mmmm...

.....and tried to sleep! Tomorrow's Monday y'all! Have a good night!

P/s: So how was your weekend, girls? :)

I Just Realized Something...

......after Syawal has passed few weeks ago, now only I realized I haven't posted any Raya pics of mine in here! Hehehe.. Sorry for the delay..  ;p

Oh well..better late than never ey? hehe. So here's some of the belated Raya pics! =)

On Friday, the morning of 1st Syawal.. Before going to Shah Alam (tempat berkumpul for the whole family- my mom's side)

In my Mak Long's place.. With daddy and little Ayra

Oh..and this cute little white thing, she's adorable, I want her already!

With my cousin's adorable daughter, Emlyn Farischa. Comel sangat kan dia niiii??! Haihh..geram nya akuuu!

Even my dad likes her! She's toooo adorable, kan?! 

My family..

My siblings.. From left: First, third, last and second

..with my fave brother (cehh..macam I ada abang/adik yang lain! heheh)

Awwww and these two would be my fave nephews. Mereka sungguh comel!

Seeeee... Aren't they cutee? hehe

And this Haikal Razik is my most favourite one! Probably cuz he is so friendly towards me! (Read: Most babies will hate this scary looking, unfriendly-but-still-nice Aunty Wany, I swear! Sobs...) 

See thatt... We get along pretty well...heheh ;p 

Aunty loves youuu!

Probably cuz he is the most quiet baby I've ever seen, so it's kinda easy to be friend with him..hahaha.. Oh andddd... it could also be because we're Januarians. He's 10, and I'm 17. The gap is only 7 days. So, I guess..that's why he can accept even this scary-looking aunty to hold him and kiss those cute little cheeks! Mmmm..geram!!

P/s: Selamat Hari Raya everyone.. Oh's not the month of Syawwal anymoree.. It is now Zulkaedah la Wani! Okay fineee.. Happy Diwani Diwali then! ;p
