Salon Muslimah

I love getting my hair done regardless am wearing hijab n what not. But, finding a muslimah friendly salon is quiet a challenge. I have been sticking to my favourite salon since school days. A very old school, Chinese barber turns salon named K.K Loh in Kajang Town. 

Abang (yes, abang. ni kategori terdesak ) yang potong rambut tu always had a fancy hair cut. Zaman zaman muda dulu with half red, half purple, tattoos everywhere, he looks more like a neighbourhood tycoon rather than a hair dresser. He has AH-MAZING skills on cutting hairs and i never change my salon ever since.

Bayangkan balik dr UK tu gigih carik dia dekat tmpt lama kat kajang, lepastu dapat tahu they have moved. Gigih lagi carik tmpt baru diorg, and after almost 1 year being abroad, my hair is now smiling again. Potong rambut dekat UK je dah boleh kenyang seminggu, tak payah la berangan nak buat hair treatment bagai ye. Tapi setiap kali pergi salon, i always have this guilt triggering inside me, kita tahu kan dosa, tapiiiiiii…. frankly speaking, i tak percaya dengan servis melayu. Especially kedai kedai biasa tu sbb i had a very bad experience once and was so serik since then! Buat rebonding je 6 hours, lepastu my hair become brittle. Nangis ok!

So, when i was about to get engaged, rasa mcm horror sgt dah rambut. So i happily drove to Reko Sentral only to find out that my favourite salon has changed management. Dah masuk, takkan nak keluar. A something that very hard for me to do. Risik risik dengan pekerja situ, diorg pon xtahu sbb it seems that K.K.Loh has sell off the business to this new management. Sbb semua equipment dalam tu still sama, Orang je lain.

You can imagine how ugly, tangling everywhere, super long (berak confirm kene sanggul!) sampai masa dekat korea, dewi suka cakap, “dah mcm kak limah ah rambut u farihah”

Whatever!! Selagi tak jumpa salon best, selagi tu i wont let strangers touch my hair, kak limah or not! Tapi dah dah nak kawen ni kan, gigih la mencari jugak. And ntah mcm mana tetiba satu hari ter-come across this iklan in FB regarding salon muslimah, dekat kajang pulak tu!  Ewah, ini sudah bagus. Tapi nak percaya, belom. I read E.V.E.R.Y.T.H.I.N.G posted on the FB, clients review, wait one week, then i decided to contact them.

Azue is a very friendly person. I siap apology bg tahu the real conditions of my Kak Limah Hair and asked her what kind of treatment she has. Kalau nak buat rebonding ada ampoule tak, rebonding dia keras sekeping sekeping ke, ada treatment sekali tak, well, si cerewet kan. She offers me a package with wash, cut, rebonding, treatment with my super ugly long hair at the price of RM250 after discounted it from RM280. Boleh la labu, sama harga dengan abg K.K.Loh. Still, i said, nanti i dah decide nak dtg  i whatsapp.

2-3 hari ni kan kerenjatan kebuhsanan, so i give it a go lah, janji boleh keluar :p. My appointment is at 1030 in the morning. And the rest are history.

I AM SUPER LOVE WITH HER TOUCH! 

She is an ex stewardess and she loves doing her hair. Alaaa, kita pon tahu kan stewardess ni kan mmg semua suka cantik cantik. She resign from flying and currently working in Cyberjaya. She explained every single treatment yang dia buat to my hair, yang ni untuk apa yang tu untuk apa, kenapa wash tak boleh keruk kepala kuat kuat and she even asked me nak potong mcm mana. Ada style sendiri ke or ist ok if she decides.

Biasalah, si cerewet ni kan mesti nak test. he he he. So i said, “u lah buat. i bet u lagi terror”

Paling best!!!! ada service urut bahu n kepala ok, ya Allahhhhhh……. ini baru terbaik bisnes orang melayu! Tempat treatment rambut tu memang tertutup, dekat luar ada tempat menunggu siap TV lagi and currently she is handling the service on her own, so she can only take one client at a time. Tapi, kalau ini macam lah servis, i sanggup! Good bye abg K.K Loh, regardless where you are.

3-4 jam duduk kat salon, tak terasa ok. and i enjoy every single second kat situ. Banyak la cerita cerita mnegumpat paling best, rupanya kitorang graduat IMKK yang sama!!! he he he jodoh betul. Pusing kiri kanan semua alumni.

I love her skill, dia sgt pandai potong rambut and the best thing, she loves what she’s doing. Rebonding dia lembutttttttt, tak sekeping sekeping and tak patah/bengkok etc. Siap pakai serkop telinga to make sure telinga kita tak melecur kene asap steam dari ironing.  Dia tgk rambut kita tu mcm nak makan makan (contoh paling senang sbb tuan tanah suka makan) I mean, u can really see bila orang betul2 mencintai kerjaya dia kan. N when she managed to cut my hair according her imagination, she even celebrate it with a satisfactory yes!

You can like her page HERE, pegi lah call sana, i bet korang pon tgh carik salon muslimah yang best best kan. She is doing this as part time, she is still working. So kalau weekdays tu malam je bukak, public hols bukak, sabtu ahad bukak tapi sila cepat cepat buat appt cos her fon cant stop ringing from clients!

Wedding Invitation Card

Finding the right design that represent you, your parents and to take care of parents community can be really a pain in the arse.

Basically i wanted a lacey, rustic, vintage kinda wedding, hence i have decided the theme, how the card gonna be, everything since past years. (Yeap, that long!) Even up to my photographer, i even asked him the quotation while i was back in the UK. Saikosis ini perempuan kan?

So, when the wedding date has been decided, i get the next 50 of Nos for everything that i proposed, from theme, colour, design, to the card. Talk about hard parents here. And you guess, to whom did i pay my revenge to?

Of course my card designer! He he he

If you see the picture below, boleh agak la, sebenarnya what type of card yang i nak. Even there’s one design Lisa & yusry make it into their own wedding card. Nizam n I went to just 1 kedai card to have a look what’s the current in thing, get to snap the one that we like, bring it to our regular printing shop, and the drill starts.

I even make a mock of it sebab Pakji n Makji x leh nak imagine how the card would be. Talk about gigih.

For every little details, dari colour ribbon, sampai background, sampai kerawang dalam, kerawang luar, rerama ke, burung ke, I swear to God, it was such a painful experience for miss Adelin, my card designer. Belum cerita suruh tukar design 180 kali, i even asked her to send me every single gambar burung that they have for me to choose from. Dah pilih, boleh plak malam tu pikir pikir, sirih tukar plak. Esok suruh tukar lagi. Itu baru burung, boleh imagine benda benda lain? Border, fonts, etc. If they dont have the thing I want, I make them do it from scratch! I am scary liddat, no?

Tak cukup whatsapp, datang kedai siap duduk sebelah, Now you do it in front of me. ha ha ha OMG, Farihah! It took me almost 2 months, baru i puas hati. heeeeeeeeeeeeeeee ^_^

But in the end, i cant stop smiling. Sampai sanggup lah berkampung dekat kedai, n gotong royong settle kan finishing sbb nak ambik hari ni jugak!

So, for you who will be receiving the card, hopefully you’ll like it as much as i do. And to those yang masih nak bagi alamat, kindly PM me/email/whatsapp ye before this sunday.

Thank You!

Dealing with Death

Few days ago, i was taking my morning FB timeline -read. Yeap, a habit i develop thru times. Bangun pagi, capai hp, bukak IG n FB. So, back to the story, i came across one status from my usrah friend when i was in Newcastle. It was posted 30 minutes earlier.

I had to re-read the first sentence quite few times to digest what exactly happen. Open up her wedding invitation that i had just approved few days back just to confirm the spouse name, and slowly, i learnt that she has just lost her husband. Been married for 2 months, kenduri belah husband will be just a week before mine, next month, and who would have thought, he’s gone forever now.

Islamic Quotes (7)

 

I still dont have the courage to go n PM her personally in her fb but i have been quietly stalking her daily since then. Talking about coward. I’m just scared that whatever i might say/write would hurt her more, or of course everyone can feel sympathy, empathy but the one experience it…….. *sigh* there’s no word to describe it.

She is much younger than me, a bright girl, happy go lucky, study hard and excel, get married and as everyone, am pretty sure she has so many future plans lie in front of her and husband. I cannot imagine, how hurt she is now. We are not talking about patah kaki ke, cancer ke, this is your life partner yang baaaaru nak kenal n mula hidup bersama. And now, What?

Ada orang cakap, i pandai simpan nizam. 12 years, sekarang baru keluarkan.

Am not sure whether the right word would be “simpan” He is there, always, all the time. Cuma, entah ye. Sebenarnya ngeri juga nak kahwin ni. Sebab i cannot imagine being in the shoe that my friend’s in. I dont want to develop that clingy-wife mode or being dependant but who am I to actually confirm that I wont change? Bukannya ada husband tiap tiap bulan or tukar tukar husband tiap tiap tahun kan?

And knowing how short-tempered I am, am praying hard semoga Allah kurniakan kesabaran level tertinggi pada Nizam. Semoga segala kesabaran 12 tahun ni, bertambah tambah lepas kahwin. Things that scare me the most is because we bare has issues during these long period. Mana lah tahu tetiba je kawen, ada gf lain ke, tetiba kawen gaduh 24jam ke, tetiba kawen, meninggal ke? You know?

Memang lah semua org akan mati. Mati itu pasti. Tapi, untuk yang ditinggalkan ni, MasyaAllah. It is just so hard to imagine.

every-soul-2

To Hazira, if you come across this writings, setiap hari, akak takkan lupa sedekah Fatihah untuk suami Hazira dan juga Hazira. May Allah protect you and send her biggest strength for you to carry on till the day you both meet again in Jannah, InsyaAllah.
