From South to West


That day at Pavi

So how did this happen?

First it was an order requesting for a ringsling made for her. Then it’s the material that reaches my sewing studio over a week ago.. and another little material came all the way from outside the country just last week.. then I locked myself in the studio.. and brought life into something that’s been playing in my mind.

Next is a stretch of holiday during the Raya Haji, then not going back to KL since my parents are on Haji… then DH mentioning about abandoned places that he has been to.. located very close to my in-laws’ place.. then I find myself digging out my old handbags and accessories that I haven’t touched for YEARS!

After lunch, just when it’s about to rain, we drove there and started taking pictures. Hehehehe.. it was fun! Should do this more often! For this session, I decided to utilise my turban-ish head wrap style using the love at first sight shawl (I have said this too many times ;p)

Hanoi Trip d5: city stroll n chocolate buffet

you would think a 4 yr old would be more ecstatic at a choc buffet ;p

Hanoi Trip d4: Around the city


Hmm… I think there will be more pictures of me this time around.. It’s mostly bcoz DH hogs the camera during this trip. So.. Ya… There won’t be many photos of feet i gues (to many’s relief probably haha)


Arab Street

Shopping for some material.. Baju raya.. While wearing Salih with one of my latest favourite carrier.. And nursing too. Talking about convenience




I have always wanted a ringsling made from wrap… I think i’ve chopped at least 15 wraps to date without breaking a nervous sweat but this time I hesitated a bit. However i think it’s a right decision i utilize this more as a ringsling than i would a wrap.

Used own shoulder style for this one and alhamdulillah it turns out great. Myonly qualms is that the tapered tail makes the tail too pointy. I think am gonna trim the tapering a bit so that it’s less pointy.

If ur house looks vintage, pardon me running around with the camera


And another one for the road
