For the Love of Tunics

Have I told you about my fascination of tunics and shirt dresses? I probably said it a million times already. I like moving a lot these days. But, I usually wear skirt or maxi dresses for greater coverage; and, they're usually not that comfortable on an active day. This is one of the reasons why I love wearing tunics and shirt dresses. I can just pair them with jeans and I am good to go - covering everything and I can move freely too.

The only sad note to my love of tunics and shirt dresses is the less stocks for it in my vicinity (mostly, it isn't available for purchase). And I cannot be bothered to have them tailor-made for me. So, my only only redemption is to buy them online. Gladly, there is available dresses for women sold on online shops. Women clothing online saved me from extra work. I can choose the dresses that match my taste at my own time on online shops without having to step outside of the premises of my home or office.

Tunics and online shopping have one thing in common: convenience/comfort. <3 Have you purchased your tunic? You should definitely try wearing one! 

Attending #theZulTiqWedding

Last month, I had my Kuala Lumpur and Singapore travel. The highlight of my travel was finally meeting Shea Rasol, Lia Ardiatami, Syahira Zakaria, Nisah Farid and Tiq Zulkifli.

When I bought the tickets to Kuala Lumpur, I wasn't really planning on going to Singapore. But when I shared to our WA group that I am going to Malaysia on August 31, Tiq told us that her wedding will be on September. It was very convenient to go to her for me from KL. Lia also was ecstatic to share that she can come to KL from Indonesia and Nisah will be home (in KL) for her holidays, too. It was like a dream! Five of us will be converging on Tiq's special day!!!

You don't know how many chats Lia and I had prior to meeting of how amazing our online friendship has been! We've known each other since 2011 prior to all these style blogging thing. :) Back then, we were just personal blogging. Ma sha Allah. Truly, the technology creates wonderful friendships and bonds if you use it well.

We arrived at Changi Airport on 2nd of September, 2016. We took the taxi to the hotel and asked if we can at least put our things to one of our two rooms since it wasn't check-in time yet. Then we headed outside to eat lunch. Later that night, we met with Tiq for her pre-wedding dinner together with her beautiful bridesmaids. 

Tiq's beautifully-henna-designed hands!

We attended the solemnization and the afternoon reception. The nikah was so beautiful and emotional. Ma sha Allah, what a wonderful scenery it is to watch two beautiful souls tying the knot and made halal for each other. When Tiq cried, we all sobbed as well. <3

With the beautiful people from around Southeast Asia. <3

With the groom and bride for the afternoon reception.

For the afternoon part of the wedding day, we were tasked as the first "hadang" among three (bridesmaids and Tiq's family). Before Zul, the groom, can go to Tiq, he must be able to do the challenges we ask him. The first task we made him do was to moonwalk. He had to try two times! hahah. The next challenge was to shout as loudly as possible the words: "I LOVE YOU ATIQAH!" He did three times because we were not convinced that it was loud enough during the first and the second. hahaha It was really fun to make fun of him! :P

One with the most beautiful bride! 

The best part of the wedding reception are these juices! <3 I looooooove them all! 

Bloggers will be bloggers. :P

Tiq's gift to us. <3 Love these so much!

After the wedding, we slept for a while. Afterwards, we went to East Coast Park Beach to have our dinner and just chill. It was so hard to take good enough photos during the dark. hahaha. So, please, don't mind our haggard looks. We were so tired, nonetheless, we enjoyed each others' companies. <3 We talked about philosophies, religion, poverty, blogging and fashion. Ma sha Allah, these are very knowledgeable girls I was with.

I couldn't be any happier to meet the girls. It was one of the best highlights of my 2016. After a year of friendship online, we were able to finally meet. <3 Urgh, I truly love these girls. They didn't only add to my knowledge about fashion and style, but also immensely contributed to my faith and spirituality. 

OOTD: High-Low Tunic

Salams! Do you ever have that moment where your bloggable ideas are piling up and you end up being hiatus on the blog? I have been a tad lazy blogger lately. To tell you the truth, I have like gazillions of travel and style posts that I haven't posted. It's crazy how I don't have the time to even boot my Macbook. Everyone knows how my internet connection is one of the issues here, too. But, let's save the complaining for my Twitter. :D 

Anyway, this style post is 3 months late. I should have posted it in July. But, hello! It's October! hahaha. I promise to post more sensical things in my blog - from my weekly writing challenges to my usual travel and style posts. I haven't even blogged my travel with the awesome girls: Shea, SyahiraLia, Anisah, to Singapore for Tiq's wedding. I promise to blog it next. (fingers crossed!)

Lately, I've been crazy over tunics. They are so comfy and have great coverage. I have been wearing them a lot since I always move around. And I can't do so when I wear skirts. The high-low tunic from allows me to be active and be conservative at the same time. Plus, the material is just the right fabric. It isn't too thick and not too thin. It is airy and won't make you sweat as hell. Plus, the cut in front also isn't that short. I personally love it!

Be sure to check out They have so many kinds of tunics to choose from. Oooh! I wish I have them all in every color available, too! </3 #wishfulthinking

Tea Stories: The Door

My head is thumping. I thought to myself, “I need a medicine.” I reached for the bedside table with my eyes still close; I know I left my medicine and a glass of water there before I slept last night. I kept on reaching but I can only feel the cold breeze. I’ve never felt the wind like this from the aircon. It is different – way too different.

I opened my eyes to check if I was reaching in the right direction. Wait. Where am I? This isn’t my room. I immediately sat on the bed. The light is too bright. I had to close my eyes and open them slowly. I am alone in a field full of flowers – roses, dandelions, daisies, sunflower, tulips and more. Name them all. They’re there. I couldn’t keep my mouth shut from awe. How did I end up here?

For all I know, I slept with a headache last night. I took my medicine and slept. I pinched myself to check if I was dreaming. It hurts. I got up. I am still in my PJs. On my feet, I stepped into the damp grass. The flowers were so pretty; I’m stuck for a few minutes just adoring them.

I am still in awe when one object got my attention. Not far from where I was, there is a door. It looked nothing like my bedroom door. I wonder what is beyond that door. There are no walls – just the door. I thought someone might be out of his mind to leave a door in this wonderland.

I walked toward the direction of the door. It looks like a vintage door and probably was left here quite long ago. The white paint was peeling off already. On its sides, the flowers and the veins are stuck to it like they have been acquainted for months already. The pink, white and red roses made the door look more appealing to anybody who sees it. Then, a hint of fear hit me.

What if what is beyond this door is not as pretty as it looked outside? I have to check the other side first before opening it. At arms-length distance, the gold doorknob was inviting. The intricate details were a masterpiece. I still thought, “How can someone leave something so precious like this door here?”

I went to the other side of the door. There was nothing there – only flowers and grasses. Maybe this is a good-for-nothing joke! The sweet breeze blew. My hair simply loved it.  The temperature was just right.  

So, what will I do here? Will I walk further? Will I open the door? Am I really alone? Is there somebody else here?

I went to the door again. I inspected it. Wait! There is a peephole. Under the marble, there is a message.

“Only those who take risks are able to see wonders.”

Reading it gave me chills. I am the kind of person who never takes risks. If I did, I already calculated the risk of my actions. Otherwise, I’d rather stick to the familiar.

I tiptoed and reached my eyes to the peephole. Inside were numerous books arranged beautifully in vintage shelves. I thought to myself, is it a library? I was eager to see the books. Wait! There is someone there, but I could hardly see if it was a man or a woman. But the person was cleaning the shelves. I sat on the grass in front of the door and thought deeply.

This is one of those days that I have to decide on whether I should go inside and find out what’s in store for me or just be here – alone. I shivered and sweated like there is no tomorrow. I was holding my hands to my chest. I looked at my surroundings. The bed looked so comfortable. The flowers were amazing. The breeze was just the perfect company.

But, the books inside looked so promising. And there is a person there. Who knows? There might be more of them. It took me hours contemplating on what I should do, till I heard my stomach growling. It is already noontime, I presumed.

I stood. I cannot starve myself in this nothingness nor can I live alone for the rest of my life. Whatever there is behind this door, I will see what I can do when I reach there. I have to take the risk. If not, I will rot here forever.

I stood and reached for the doorknob. It is glistening. It is really beautiful. I tried to knock first. Nobody answered. I slowly twisted the knob. My heart is pounding rapidly. I could hardly breathe.

Click! - the sound of the door opening. I pushed the door to open it wider.  Then…

{This is a project where I try to write stories about simple things we see in our daily lives. I have challenged myself to delve more into writing prose and stories than just about my life.
