Big Bad Wolf Book Sale 2016~!!

Assalam and hye everyone~!!

Well, it seems that I have not updated my blog for over a year, hihi.. Lots of stuff happening in my life, so I've left the blogging world for a (long) while.

So, on 17th December 2016, I went to the Big Bad Wolf Book Sale 2016 at MIECC @ The Mines. Hannah tagged along, it was her first time ever going to a book sale event. For those of you who do not know, Big Bad Wolf (or BBW, in short) is a book sale event held every year, usually in December. Books are on sale up until 95%!



This is an event that I look forward to every year. Besides being held in at the end of the year, BBW also has mini book sale events occasionally, especially the popular "box sale" - where you have to buy a box there and try to put in as many books as you can in the box.

At BBW 2016, Hannah and I met with a "real" Red Riding Hood. Here's a pic as proof :P

Me, Red Riding Hood, and Hannah


Besides that, we also found a huge Red Riding Hood book. So, of course, we had to take a selfie of it.



After maybe 3 hours, Hannah and I made our purchase of books, summing up to nearly RM150. I was on a tight budget, so not many books could be bought, huhuhu~... T^T Our book haul is as the following picture:

Our book haul :D

The best haul ever was getting the Barbie bookends along with 4 Barbie storybooks for only RM25.

Did any of you go to BBW 2016

Thanks for reading & happy blogging~!!

Bon Odori 2015 Festival @ Shah Alam~!!

Salam & hye everyone~!!

Ever known what a Bon Odori festival is? Bon odori is actually a Japanese dance festival which is usually celebrated on the 15th day of the seventh month of the lunar calendar. In Malaysia, bon odori is held annually in Penang & Shah Alam, Selangor.

Recently, on 5th September 2015, the 39th Bon Odori Festival was held as usual at the Panasonic Sports Complex in Shah Alam. Andddd.... even though I live in Shah Alam, this was the first time I had the opportunity to go to the event! (╯✧∇✧)╯





People attending bon usually wear yukata (casual kimono) and geta. I bought my very first own yukata from a yukata shop in Damansara Damai. They also have a Facebook page, Cosplay and Yukata Shop

The pink yukata that I bought for RM85

And since I'm a bit low in my financial budget, I decided to make my own obi (the belt worn around the yukata) and kinchaku bag (Japanese bag worn together with the yukata or kimono), besides a matching bow brooch for my hijab.

I went there with a friend of mine, who is also a Japan culture fan like myself, hihi.. Although it rained a bit for some time, the event still attracted hordes of people. Here are some pics taken at bon odori:

(btw, the ones wearing the blue yukata & yellow yukata (with pink hijab) are the owners of the yukata shop I mentioned earlier)

Yummy takoyaki!!! (ノ^∇^)ノ゚

For next year's bon, I'm planning on sewing my own yukata, if I can find the pattern, muehehehe... and maybe buy a pair of geta too! If you want to buy a yukata or kimono via online, why not try checking out Oh, Japan! or Tokyo Purple.

Did you attend Bon Odori 2015?  :3

Thanks for reading & happy blogging~!!

DIY Photo Booth, Candy Booth & Guestbook Corner for my brother's wedding~!!

Salam & hye everyone~!!

Yes, it's been a while since I last updated this blog, hoho.. Anyway, today I'd like to update about my brother, Ayep's wedding reception, which was held recently on 15th August 2015

He has given me the challenge of making a photo booth, candy booth and guestbook corner. This is my first time ever doing such a project for a wedding, therefore I admit that the end result is quite simple yet pleasing, hehehe...

Below are the pics of the craft project for his wedding:
