Salam Lebaran Syawal Mulia

Amboi Amboi Amboi... the mouth of Mr. Fashionista... Yess i love Saree.. but not that kind of Saree yer, I would not wear for Hari Raya anyway, however the pictures posted by Mr. fashionista was so damn exclusives.. i admiring the model instead the clothes ... imagining them without the outfit..(mmmmmm unbelievable )

For me, during festival season you always wanted to look glamorous and look fabulous. You need to go and shopping for it. Its time to spend money on this special occasions. I have tons of ideas what to wear;

1. This is GUCCI Kaftan... I will buy one eventually :-) different right.. asyik Baju Kurung jer.. Boring.....

2. aaahhh this is one.. very special, just for indoor party... later ( berpeluh-peluh)

3. mmmmm this one ( Korang Ada ) I will wear this at home and entertain my guests during Open House. I would recommend you to do the same.

4. ...or something like this.. but with legging ( black or white ) ... this is from Diane von Furstenberg.

5. This one is MINE. ...... fascinating.

6. this is GUCCI... I am sure Mr. Fashionista would like to turn it this outfit to male outfit. :-)

7. My favorite, Simple and Expensive. Go and get it Girls!!!!

8. If you want to loook different from others.... here you go :-) making it UNIQUE!

9. WOW .. this is one after long day of touring for RAYA day and if you live in tropical countries like Malaysia... this is much appropriate after long day :-)

10. If people said" Nak pergi Sembahyang" .. this would be the good one to wear.. right Mr. Fashionista?

These are the 10 fabulous items you gut should have. and for me I would want the best of the best.

Selamat Hari Raya. Maaf Zahir dan Batin.

Eid Mubarak Fashion Alternatives

In another 1 week we are going to celebrate Eid Mubarak which means victory to those who are able to hinder themselves from all the desire surround them in the month of Ramadhan..:) Now its the week that most of the Muslim prepare themselves by buying new clothes, new things for their house celebrate the victory..

Speaking of preparation, most of the Muslim will be busy buying new clothes like Baju Melayu for male muslim which is traditional Malay costume that is normally worn on the first day....

Since i'm into fashion, of course I will beg to be differ on that day! Furthermore, I am not used to wear the samping', which is kind of messy for me. As a replacement, I would go for a few 'replacement' clothing that still resemble traditional and style for the first day celebration.

Below are my top 3 fashion style for Eid Mubarak..

Nehru Jackets



Modern improvised sherwani..

I think, it is very nice to wear the sherwani's with skinny jeans...its flatters the top and still into the current fashion streams...:)

In overall, Indian fashions are a really nice alternatives to wear on Eid Mubarak, its polite, vibrant of colours, scream fashion and its fun to wear! However, the price for these garments are not cheap. It will be around min RM300 to RM2000!!!. This is all because of the details, linings and handmade craftsmanship. And, on top of that, Sherwani costume would require at least min 1 month booking as it is only handcrafted for you..

Hmmm....Raya will be in another 5 days....

Maybe I should skipped the Sherwani's and try these Indian's inspired John Galliano's SS 2010/11 fashion then.....

Not vibrant enough ya? How bout this?.......

I wonder what Ms Shopaholic will wear on Raya....

Maybe this?

Indian inspired as well yanno!!!!......weheehhe.....

Anyway...Happy Eid Mubarak everyone..wishing you the best festive seasons, loads of relax and nice celebration ever.......and kalau ada salah dan silap tolong maafkan...:)

Breaking Fast Rules for Fashionable People

Well, well, well... Those pictures posted by Mr. Fashionista are an amusing and expensive proposition for breaking fast during this holy month of Ramadhan. However, it is perfectly acceptable for people like us (PLU) to savor the joy of fine cuisine.

After being with friends for "Buka Puasa", I have experienced bad food, good food and great food. Of course good food and great food will make me happy and those restaurants providing good food will more frequently earn our business. This will make the world better for business owners and consumers alike.

Beside restaurants or hotel buffets, there is also places in KL known as Ramadhan bazaars that provide food for breaking the fast. While these bazaars may sound somehow glamorous or even exotic, these actually are "NOT PLACES FOR PLU". They are dirty, messy and the food is completely disastrous. Beside this, the people at these bazaars are hopelessly unfashionable!

See what I mean?

Just imagine us scurrying through these people everyday just to buy a good "Murtabak" with our PRADA bags... I can't imagine!!

There are a few very simple rules for having a wonderful buka puasa with friends or family:

  • 5-star hotel buffets.
  • Restaurants which accept Visa or Mastercard
  • Restaurants which provide tissues and napkins from IKEA.
  • Restaurants which have suitably expensive (RM50 or up per plate) menus :-)

Do NOT visit-
  • Any restaurant serving Sirap Bandung.
  • Restaurants serving drinks only in paper or plastic cups. It will ruin your day, trust me.
  • Restaurants which only feature ceiling fans for cooling. We constantly need air conditioning so that our make up or hair will not get ruined!
Please follow these rules, and you will have an happy "Buka Puasa". If you disregard this savvy advice, here is what may be in store for you!

..... if you want to be size "0", you can do this after Buka Puasa. heheheh

..... or you can do this

.. and if you can't stop eating all the time, you will end up being this HAPPY.

Breaking Fast, Foods and Fashion

Selamat berpuasa to all our Muslim friends out there!

Sorry as lately I havent got the time to blog as you know its fasting month, everything becoming very slow and very tiring....The only time that we felt energized is when we are nearing the buka puasa time and then looking for the best place to break our fast...

And since I am a fashionista, a breaking fast place would be a complicated task...:)

That place must be:-
1. Convenient and comfortable place to sit in and have dinner
2. Simple food, not too much but delicious, must aim for size 0
3. Warm lights, I refuse to eat at any white light environment, it'll kill the color
4. Smoking area, with ashtray, preferably 
5. A place to be seen
6. Close or inside a mall, while waiting for the breaking fast time, you can go shopping first..:)

So there you have it, my 6 must have for breaking fast place, or at least it provide minimum 4 out of that 6 criteria...

Currently our 5 favourite, most suitable place which matched the above criteria will be...

1.Thai Express Pavillion = average RM20.00 per person 

2. Redbox Ria = average RM40.00 per person

3.Muar Restaurant = average RM20.00 per person

4.Madam Kwan = average RM30.00 per person
5. Redbox Plus Pavilion = average RM80.00 per person

But actually..we missed our fav spot....

Hmmm....the first place to chill out after Raya would be here definitely!!
Ohhh wait, what about Fashionista sahur eateries?

I need my beauty sleep....but in the same time, i'll have these small little wonder of foods.....

Hopefully with all that high sugar Chanel foods I would fall back to sleep and dream of having my next 'buka puasa' at this place....

Gucci Cafe Tokyo......

Walking inside, inhale all the vibrant good positive Gucci energy.....

Flipping through my order  from the Guccissimo menu....

After a small portion of Fashuonista meals, a special desert of course.....

And after completed all those fine dining, of course heading to the counter...

and take out some magic card from my new bag...

And head straight to the hotel....eehh..i forgot something
...hey! wheres Ms Shopaholic?
