to praise you

hiya luvs!

I can't get that fatboy slim song* out of my head! it all started when i surprised my good friend ina with tickets to the fatboy slim concert last week. to be honest, it was my second fatboy slim concert here in malaysia. i still enjoyed it like it was my first! it was such a last minute decision that i manage to get hold of someone selling the ticket the day before and had the actual physical tickets on the night of the concert outside the venue! where there's a will, there's a way - hah!

i was pleasantly surprised that another girl friend, farah, also decided to join us and later through the concert, mila and dewa also made it. we were early, about 9pm and the line up consists of local DJs - LAPSAP (Litterall show), Phil K Lee and Nick Haydez. fatboy slim came out at 1am! tired me out but certainly enjoyed myself. i'm happy to report that i came home sober lol well, sober-er than my friend ;)

the next day i joined ina (again) with her family to have a pre-birthday celebratory dinner in a more wholesome environment. we had amazing middle eastern food. i got so stuffed with bread, hummus, briyani, chicken, lamb.. and the list goes on!

on the theme of birthdays and such, i received my birthday present from my eldest niece qamra. it was a subscription to malaysia's first ever beauty box - fabulousfinds. the product samples in their inaugural box are:
beaubelle's clarity - brightening cleansing exfoliator
beaubelle's gorgeous - multi defence protection cream
burt's bees - cranberry & pomegranate scrub

burt's bees - sensitive daily moisturising cream
benefit cosmetics - the porefessional
crabtree & evelyn - iris ultra moisturising hand therapy
lunasol - skin finishing powder
shu uemera - ultimate8 sublime beauty cleansing oil
 i'm not much of a beauty reviewer but i'll give my two cents worth after i have tried the sample products for atleast about a week i suppose. fingers crossed!

quickfix at 36

hiya luvs!

i turned 36 yesterday. i got to have a lovely dinner with my girlfriends and karaoke'd (my most favourite past time!) it was one of those times when i just wanted to dress all girly and hang around with my girlfriends and be fabulous lol! i also wanted to have my favourite chocolate hazelnut tart for my birthday which was lovingly made by my darling neighbour ina. i told my girlfriends the theme was 'show some skin'.

my other girlfriend, weween, (who incidentally gave birth around 2 weeks ago) dug up one of her scooped-neckline dress and said now she can fill them nicely lol i.e. heaving boobies!

moon, my 'pillar of strength, drove all the way from johor which is about 4 hours away. tired and super busy she may be, she still managed to come looking the gorgeous minx she is!

thanks to all the lovely ladies who made my birthday extra special xx enjoy the pics!

luv, jijixx
