Assalamualaikum everyone. I pray that all of you are in good health and experience wonderful things everyday. I'm currently a bit busy with my preparation for the coming exam but I still spare some time to blog and visit some of you. Just to share my story...
Yesterday, I stumbled upon an Islamic shop (but sadly, the girl at the counter wears skimpy clothing with a 'tudung' on) selling all kinds of hijabs, abayas, jilbabs, accessories and basically things that Muslim women would swoon to have. I was on my way to renew my shop's license at the ROC's office in the 3rd. floor of Seri Mutiara Complex and right after I get out of the lift on that floor, there's this shop, captivating my eyes. Well, the thing is, they hang some really gorgeous abayas in front of their shop. I couldn't resist, I need to stop and have a look.
Since my main intention going there is to renew the license, I leave the shop and force my feet to the ROC. Lucky day! There weren't many people so the process was really quick. I then hurry back to the shop. Wow! They have so many beautiful abayas. I couldn't even choose which one I wanted most. The price is RM99.00 each but the girl said that she'll give a lower price if I buy more. Well, I know... whatever, after an hour of trying and choosing, I grabbed 3 abayas, hehehe.
Alhamdulillah she kept her promise and I got quite a reasonable price for each. Here's one of the abaya that I bought and I'm wearing it today. Don't laugh but this abaya is size SX, that's the right size for me although I can also wear size S with a little renovation (correction: ALTERATION) at the hemline. Don't worry, they have up to size XXL.
When I showed them to my family and I have 5 sisters (currently 4 are at home), a mother who also love my abayas and also 2 'bibik' or maid, all of them wanted to buy my new 'babies'. Oh, NO! Sorry, I can't sell them but if they like I can help to buy for them and I already have a few orders. Hahaha.
Below are the close-up of the busts and the sleeves area and the other one is the hemline (click on image for a bigger shot). Gorgeous design using beads and sequines and the material is really soft and light. Don't ask, I really don't know the type of it. It's a bit difficult to wash though - hand wash is needed if you want the decoration to last longer.
