My New Abaya (1)

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.



I'll be posting an updates about my other two abayas, just wait and see. If you'd like to get this abaya, I can help you to buy them but you have to cover the postage. anyone interested? They have 6 or 7 different design on the same abaya pattern.

Chik, sangat cantiklah. selalunya susah sungguh nak cari saiz, sbb tu akak suka beli jubah yg ada seluar...he he he. akk naklah. nnti akak emel ye.

kakchik said...

Asha said...

Salaam Kakchik,

Nice abaya masyaAllah! I like the designs on the sleeves and at the bottom. Is it for formal wear or just everyday wear?

Asha

kakchik said...

Wa'alaikumsalam Asha.

This abaya can be both. I wore it to work yesterday and I think it also can be wear to any formal function because of the designs.

Would you be interested?

Sasha said...

teringin nak satu! tp asal try je, size tak pernah betul2 fit-in nicely... nanti nak jahit sendirilah kalau dah pandai...

p/s: kecik molek je Kakchik ni... I'm sure u have a well-maintained body too...

siouxsiesweets said...

salaams ive just started getting back into niqab again alhumdullilah how do u do your niqabs?? the one that you are wearing in this photos is it just a big piece of material or a proper niqab, its such a lovley style masha Allah,

malizea said...

mashallah beautiful abayas and yes your niqab is amazing!! I love it

Champ said...

Cantik la kakchik.. Saya selalu susah nak cari jubah yg fit me nicely. Semua nya pendek.. Sigh..

kakchik said...

Sha, kalau nak Sha boleh bagi ukuran badan Sha, rasanya lebih senang KakChik ukur nanti. Biasanya Sha beli saiz apa? M ke?

Hehehe, KakChik memang kecik, 151cm je tingginya. Insya-Allah badan mesti nak kena jaga selalu kan, itupun berat naik 2kg lepas asyik dok masak pizza dah 43 kg skrg ni.

kakchik said...

wa'alaikumsalam siouxsiesweets,

i've visit your blog last night but not leaving any message as i just want to get to know you. thanks for stopping by and masha-Allah, i hope you'll be able to be committed with your niqab after this.

my niqab is pretty easy but i don't know how to explain how i wear it. it's actually one piece of big hijab, 60". i already have a request to show my style but haven't been able to fulfill it yet.

thank you sis. i'm glad that you asked. please come again.

kakchik said...

my dear malizea, you just know how to make me smile, thank you.

Asha said...

Salaam KakChik,

Not at the moment :( Sorry.. will let you know if I want one :D JazakAllah khair Sis!

Sasha said...

rasanya size M... ukuran tinggi, bahu ke bahu nnti sha ukur... selalu problem kalau baju labuh dia ok, tp oversize... bila size ok, baju pulak singkat..

siouxsiesweets said...

jazak Allah khairun yh insha Allah a tutorial would be good so its just one big hijab, i might just go to the material shop to try this, its nice and it would be good for summer right now im all in black as its easier to just put on, but you have very good style masha Allah salam

kakchik said...

Wa'alaikumsalam Asha,

It's ok, I'm just asking, hehehe.

kakchik said...

Sha,

kalau Sha nak betul-betul baru Sha bagitau ya.

kakchik tak keberatan nak tolong belikan sebab kedainya dekat je dengan ofis kakchik.

kakchik ingat org tinggi macam Sha senang nak beli baju siap, rupanya susah juga ya.

kecik macam kakchik ni memang susah benar nak beli baju siap, biasanya kena ubahsuai la.

kakchik said...

dear siouxsiesweets,

i'm still not ready to do the tutorial yet. oh, i wish i can draw then i can show you how.

i like black too and most of my hijab is black but with different colours of lining and i also have other colours like the one you've seen here.

thanks again, my style was inspired from many youtube's hijab videos that i've seen.

BARAN said...

kak chik...nak jugak..bleh ke hntar ke negara jauh ni..isk2

kakchik said...

baran, insya-allah boleh, cumanya kos penghantarannya tentu mahal, sanggup ke?

salam alaikum...

kak chik, sorry i hope you will not get offended. I just want to correct the language used in the phrase above. I understand what you were trying to say with the hemline. the correct word would be 'alteration' and not renovation. though, both carry similar meaning but the words come from 'verbs' of different situation and meanings. I hope you will take my comment constructively. you may correct the entry and delete my post if you like.

wassalam.

kakchik said...

Wa'alaikummussalam teachernur. Thanks for correcting me. It's okay. I really appreciate it. As this language is not my mother tongue and I'm writing in it is to help me practice my English. I'm always open to nasihah and correction. Sometimes I know the correct word but couldn't find it in my head. :) Thank you sis.
