Peplum Perfect

Does the peplum trend look classic to you?  It was actually introduced in the 19th century.  A peplum or a peplos is a kind of short overskirt usually attached to a fitted jacket, blouse or dress.Peplum can be sewn on tops, dresses, skirts, or pants to create the illusion of curvy hips and a full waist. Originating from Greece many centuries ago, this fashion trend has made a flash-forward into the present era, and how!   This trend was hot in the 40s a 80s, and now its made a comeback on the designer runways for Spring and Fall.  Peplum is a fabulous embellishment that will add flair to your outfit, and doesn’t need a lot (if any) accessorizing.  Will it be an addition to your closet?

Tracks the trend of the waist ruffle and tells you why you should try it — ASAP!

On first look, it might seem like a severe and intimidating trend, also theatrical at times, but young designer Priyanka Khanna insists Indian women should embrace the trend. “a well-constructed peplum flatters voluptuous women (think Beyonce, Kim Kardashian and even Oprah Winfrey). It’s not true that this silhouette is only for twiggy thins. ” She lists some reasons why:

1.Indian women have the gift of curves and the peplum celebrates the waist-to-hip area. Women who are proud of their narrow waist but are conscious of their lower stomach bulge can seek solace in a peplum. It covers those flaws. On the other hand, a peplum also helps accentuate curves on a ‘straight boyish’ figure. It’s versatile.
2. The waist ruffle on a peplum skirt is something that creates proportion in a body. When styled with a slim-fit shirt or even a simple camisole, the look makes you stand out in a crowd. However, keep in mind that there are different types of peplum skirts that are suited to different body types. Remember, it is all about dressing according to one’s body structure.
3. Whether you are tall, average or short and sweet, the peplum works. Short peplum dresses give an appearance of longer legs. Peplum pencil skirts that reach the knee or the narrow part of your legs can be worn by tall or average-height women. Not all of us are gifted with 37-inch catwalk legs, hence no boots of any kind (booties or thigh-highs) should be worn with peplums. Opt for some fun pumps or peep-toes.
4. If you are not used to peplums, the easiest way to incorporate the trend into your wardrobe is to start with a peplum jacket or top. It gives your outfit a sudden oomph and geometric character. The peplum on a jacket or top is advisable for women with heavier hips (it has to be placed strategically). This can be teamed with trousers, jeans or fitted skirts. Note: The peplum is an elegant ‘waist ruffle’, hence should not be worn with loose, flowing maxi skirts or baggy jeans!

when one door closes, another one opens

As I look back on my life, I realize that every time I thought I was being rejected from something good, I was actually being redirected to something better.

Pray not only because you need something, but because you have a lot to thankful for.

Ya Allah
 Terima kasih atas Nikmat yang Engkau beri hari ini
 Setiap sisa nafas yang masih melewati hidung dan memberi kehidupan untukku
 Untuk setiap detak jantung yang masih terdengar dan kurasakan dalam nyataku
 Untuk Ribuan kasih sayang yang tak dapat ku sebut satu-persatu

Ya Allah
jiwa ini bagai lahan tandus tanpa penghuni
tubuh ini tak akan bergerak tanpa Engkau Redhai
 semuanya hanya untuk dan darimu ya Rabbi
 butakanlah mataku dari segala tindakan yang tak terpuji
 Sempurnakan Iman yang sering kuanggap “hanya” pelengkap diri
 kerana hidup ini Indah
 Itu semua Hanya kerana Redhamu semata

 I fall, I rise, I make mistakes, I live, I learn, I’ve been hurt but I’m alive. I’m human, I’m not perfect but I’m thankful.

tentang D H i A

Do you know how much you mean to me?
As you grow into what you will be.
You came from within, from just beneath my heart
it's there you'll always be though your own life will now start.
You're growing so fast it sends me a whirl,
With misty eyes I ask, Where's my little girl?
I know sometimes to you I seem harsh and so unfair,
But one day you will see, I taught you well because I care.
The next few years will so quickly fly,
With laughter and joy, mixed with a few tears to cry.
As you begin your growth to womanhood, this fact you must know,
You'll always be my source of pride, no matter where you go.
You must stand up tall and proud, within you feel no fear,
For all you dreams and goals, sit before you very near.
With god's love in your heart and the world by its tail,
You'll always be my winner, and victory will prevail.
Kakak Dhia, mama love you so much!

A Freedom fighter fighting for equality and rights to live in peace and harmony

menyanyilah anakku
meski mereka menutup telinga
tertawalah anakku. . .
meski mereka merendahkanmu
keluarkan candamu anakku. . .
meski mereka enggan menerima
berlarilah anakku. . .
meski mereka menyuruhmu berhenti
 hiduplah  anakku
seperti mereka yang merdeka
meski kau terbatas oleh benteng yang tak pasti
meski kau terkurung bersama nasib
meski kau terkunci di ruang pinggiran
namun satu yang tak mungkin terpasung
walau sang metropolitan menyisihkanmu
kamu tetap mempunyai ' hati yang merdeka'
untuk tentukan hidup dan penghidupanmu.

p/s:ini bukan iklan hari merdeka ;D

Selagi kita tidak dapat keluar dari gua hitam
Selagi itulah kita pengkhianat kemerdekaan
Tak siapa dan bukan siapa
Sesiapa sahaja yang melakukan.
Kemerdekaan di tanah air ini
Bukan pesta jembalang menari
Dan mengilai di pelabuhan retak, tapi
Landasan yang semestinya maruah dan keperibadian suci
Dan setiap pesongan jati diri yang unggul ini
Akan dicaci sehabis benci.

Selamat menyambut Kemerdekaan ke 55,Malaysia!

syawal 1433H

Selamat lebaran, semoga diterima amalan,

Bila masa sekarang
tidak menyilaukan
pandangan masa depan
Bila kesenangan sesaat
tidak membuat lupa
kebahagiaan jangka panjang
Pantaslah kita berbahagia atas jiwa
yang sehat dan dewasa
setelah sebulan dilatih
menahan diri dengan puasa.
Selamat Hari Lebaran
Mohon maaf segala kesalahan.
