|Fatin-the future doctor|
Actually, Fatin made it to UIA through SPC so this was our last get-together with her and we want it to be special and memorable. What better ways to spend time with your besties than to just roam around in the middle of the city, right? =) To make it short, we went to the bazaar to look for cheap cloths for aliah to wrap her notebooks. She's doing this small business of selling her own notebooks which she uses fancy cloths to wrap them up. Its RM 15 per book( promoting, hahaha!) Fatin was just surveying the baju kurung there for her to buy for UIA. As for me, i was just surprised to see a world i've never seen before for as long as i lived. the bazaar looked a lot like the one in Pengkalan Kubor, Kelantan. there were loads of shops selling all these fabrics and nice clothes.
Even though, they're not designer labels and highly branded stuff which sometimes have extremely preposterous prices that blow your minds ( like the ones i saw in Singapore) but are the ugliest you've ever seen, they're still nice to look at and btw, who cares if they have any brands at all?? at the end of the day, all those brands are attached to the back of your clothes and nobody is going to see it. Worse, if you're wearing and ugly red dress with a huge paste diamond on the clivage, people are still going to ask you with that cynical + sarcastic tone of voice that's going to make you cry to your mom ," who made that?seriously, it's that a table cloth?" and you just have to swallow everything up and say," i'm afraid it's Dolce and Gabbana" like this picture =)
Sorry, i got a litle carried away. Its just PMS.hahahahaha
Back to the story, after that, we met this humble little shop called the Sam's Batik House. This is where Fatin found her dream blouse which was heavenly! I tell you, its sooooooooooooo beautiful, and its white! but, wait till you hear the price. RM280!! for a blouse?! yeah! that's the same response the three of us gave the first time the price got out of that Bangladeshi man's mouth. Forget it! but looking at fatin's face when she saw that blouse, we( aliah and i) knew she wanted it so badly. so me and aliah gave each other The Wink ** behind fatin's back. We asked her to change and wear the blouse and style it out while aliah and i discussed on buying it the next time before fatin heads it for UIA. We smiled to the guy and headed out of the shop. =D
We decided to pray at Masjid Kapitan Keling for Zohor and Asar. Surprisingly, none of us had ever stepped in the mosque before! Shame2.......all we had seen was the outer part of the mosque which was beautiful and antique. We took a few pics after that which looked exactly like a vacation in India. hahaha! To top it off, while we were having fun posing for pics in front a mosque, there was this sufi guy(as labeled by aliah)...wearing a jubah and white serban and had eyeliner all over his eyes(over!) like a tabligh...watching us like we had bombs under our scarves..so we made a run for it..run!!phewww.........
