Time sure flies. But you know when time doesn’t fly??

When you’re on a 13-hour flight with 2 active kids who refuse to sleep and you start to rethink your life decisions.


We were en route to London for our family holiday! It’s Mariam’s first time here. Well the last time, she was in my tummy so I guess it’s her second time here?

Daniel kept on going “Are we here yet?” “Mommy I’m so bored” and “Why is the plane not moving?” even though I’ve explained to him that the plane is indeed, moving. “I don’t think so, Mommy.” -___-“

I’m on a plane from Singapore back home to KL now. It was a productive trip that was really short; we sponsored Afgan’s concert, I had an interview with CNBC Asia and Suria Channel the next day, had a team meeting with FV Singapore team and then straight to the airport. Just a regular work day… NOT!!

Did you read that properly, guys?! We sponsored Afgan’s concert. We. FashionValet. And. Afgan. The. Afgan.

The Love, Vivy crew came as well because we have started shooting for Season 2 and during the interview session, the Director Faiz asked me, “So how do you feel now that FV is on an international level now?” That question caught me off guard because OMG we really are. We were featured on BBC, then New Yorker, then Forbes and today CNBC! And of course, that hottie Afgan. It’s just so surreal but because so many things happen on a daily basis and it’s always ok, on to the next thing, Dean and I don’t really get to sit down and truly appreciate all the cool things that’s happening with FashionValet. Did you know we launched FV Bridal last month? And we opened a store in Pavilion? And we are launching FV Men next month? Ughhhh I swear I always wanna blog about each one, but life is just so fast-paced now. This is a reminder for me to always be grateful for each achievement and try to blog about it, even if it’s a short post. I never want to lose these memories years from now, so I need to pen them down!


i’m allergic to…

I know I’m allergic to seafood but I was curious to know what else, just in case. So I took the allergy test.


They put a strip on you, marked the numbers and each number represents a different item like peanut, shrimp, egg and other things. They drop liquid next to each number and you have to wait 10-15 minutes with your arms out like this, and be bored to death because you can’t check your phone. Like you literally have to just watch your phone light blinking and not be able to check if that’s an urgent message or someone commented on your Instagram photo… #problems.

So I’m going into the big 3-0 in a couple of years and already getting many of those “Aiya you better make sure you take care of your skin ah later all sag down” comments from Aunties from the Wrinkles Haters club. Honestly, I do feel my body is a little sluggish now… is this what getting old feels like?!! *cries blood* If 30 feels like this, I’m going to be one really grumpy 40-year-old blogger, guys.

Anyway, so Dean and I were walking around a department store and I passed a La Mer counter. I’ve heard good things about the brand and saw mom and mil use it sometime ago too. Ooohh they also have a spoon for their moisturiser, that’s so cool. Ok sold! Come, let’s go there.


our first movie together

We bravely took the kids for a movie recently. Both the kids! This was Mariam’s first ever movie and Daniel’s second. We heard about the beanie bag cinema in One Utama from my silk so decided to try it out with them. It was so nice! All 4 of us on one big beanie cuddling while watching Trolls.

Umm excuse their faces… as long as Mommy and Daddy look ok. Haha.

Daniel was as usual, quiet and cautious, looking around and I think slightly uncomfortable being in the dark. Especially when scary moments play on the screen, he turns to me and says “Mommy I want to go home.” NO, DANIEL. You sit here and watch this scary monster and toughen yourself up, man. Now, hold Mommy’s hand. Cos Mommy is ummm, scared too.
