Semut's Singapore Trip Day 4

This is actually not our last day, but this will be the last post about Semut's trip in Singapore. Just because.

Day 4: October 6th, 2016

#1 Art Science Museum

I have posted the building pictures of Art Science Museum in the 1st Day blog post. It's in the evening and I love the photo. You should check it out here! (Self-esteem increased)

Art Science Museum is in the same area with Marina Bay Sands. We even entered the Marina Bay Sands to get to the Art Science Museum.

Semut's Singapore Trip Day 3

 Day 3: October 5th, 2016

#1 Urban Redevelopment Authority (URA)

It's amazing to be here. We could see the development of Singapore from the past and how it is developed to be a modern city in the present, and even the future plan of the city.

In URA, we could find a miniature/maquette of Singapore. Remember the Singapore National Stadium we visited on the 2nd day? The miniature was there too.

Semut's Singapore Trip Day 1

It's been almost 2 months since this trip with my college friends. What a 'real-time' blogger, huh? Hahaha. Anyway, Pals, this will be like a photo diary I recently like to post. And the pictures are purely what I got on my camera. Some are so cool that I can't believe I take them myself, lol.

As you see in the title, Semut is the name of my batch in college (ITS - Architecture 2013). We had our trip to Singapore for 5 days studying about this city (hopefully), held on October 3rd-7th, 2016. I'll write this in time sequence (only 4 days, unfortunately). So, I hope you enjoy the pictures!

Day 1: October 3rd, 2016

#1 Changi International Airport
Yeah, we went there by airplane. So, here we are in the coolest airport in the world. It's not that easy for me to pass the immigration because (maybe) I have only one name. I passed it, anyway.

By the way, if you're the first timer here, don't forget to take a map of Singapore! You could do your trip alone with the map as it shows the MRT routes and good places to visit. Well, basically, every corner is nice to visit (and to take a photo).

I took OOTD pictures here, but I already uploaded it on my IG, so yeah, no need it to be posted on the blog anymore. *Actually, there's a hidden reason hahaha.

5 Ways to Get Your Party Look for Hijabi

 "I believe there's actually 3 seasons in my country. The dry, the rainy and the wedding seasons." - @nuhevita 
Seeing that caption yesterday and like "OMG, it's so true!". So, in this lovely wedding season, I would like to give you some tips on how to get your party dress, especially for hijabi. It probably not only for a wedding party but also for a graduation ceremony or birthday party as well.

Everyone might know the types of clothes we should wear for a party, from lace gown, kaftan, abaya, or probably kebaya for Indonesian party. But, where could you find your perfect clothes for a party? These are the 5 ways you might find your perfect lovely clothes for a party.

Sew Your Own Dress
Everybody knows it. Your party dress should fit you very well. And the best way to get the dress that suits you well is to sew it. You may sew it to the nearest tailor to your home. Or it could be a portfolio if you can sew it yourself!

You can design the dress yourself or simply give a picture of your favorite dress design to the tailor. It's your luck if you have a designer friend. Designing and sewing your party clothes yourself will be so interesting, especially when it turns out very good and your friends compliments you on the party (try it!). Self-help equals self-pride, which is happiness!
Sewing Party Dress

Mix and Match
You have a sleeveless party gown you wore in your pre-hijab moments and don't know what to do? Pair it with suit or blazer, wear a turban. You're ready to get your androgyny party look.

Don't be afraid, old fashion trends do coming back. Open the wardrobes of your mother, your aunts, or even your grandmothers. Find something cool and pair it with the latest trend you have. Everything looks good with a good sense of mix and match!

Mix Match Party

Thrift Stores
Find the best second-hand shops in your city. Go there and you might find a dress that matches you, a dress that doesn't match the owner before and ready to be found by you. Not enough for a party look? You can give it to the tailor to custom it. You can buy pearls and apply them there. You get your party look, plus you can save more money!

Or, you could find a pair of elegant shoes or purse or any accessories for your perfect party look.
Thrift Shop Party

Local Boutiques
It could be a little bit pricey, but you'll be so happy with the well-designed clothes and well-chosen fabrics. Save more money earlier before the party. Buy clothes from local designers in their boutiques. Now, you already support local designers and it's very good.

Designer Party

Buy Online
You're so busy and don't have time to do the 4 things I mentioned before? Buy online! Local designers have reached the online market and thrift stores as well. Marketplaces are everywhere on the TV and on the sides of your facebook pages. Plus, online stores usually will give you discounts! I did my research (a.k.a. online window shopping) yesterday and found an online web ZALORA, selling good choices of party dresses for Muslimah with good prices. You too, should try online window shopping and could find a perfect mate that suits you to come to a party. Anyway, below is the dresses that caught my eyes, in case you're curious, hahaha.

Zalora Party

So girls, for you to find the perfect party dresses, it's practically everywhere! Good luck on finding a perfect dress!

Photo Diary: Skatepark & BMX Surabaya

After a super long hiatus because of no reason, I decided to make 'Photo Diary' posts. It's so embarrassing to say that I don't have any idea about what to post on the blog, but it's a reality. So, I think photo diary posts aren't bad, huh?

About a week ago, Surabaya has become a busy city. The 3rd PrepComm of UN Habitat III was held in the city, so there were many festivals took place in its various parks. Some schedules were also broadcasted via social media and messenger. I was sooo excited.

I decided to go to Skatepark & BMX near Kalimas, because they said there would be a watercraft competition on Kalimas river. But it's my fault to come there in the noon that the park was soooo quiet and I found nothing. I've brought my camera, so why not taking OOTD pictures?

I started sliding and can't resist laughing

Not stairs!

Surabaya Fashion Parade 2016 Moslem Runway:Alphiana Chandrajani, Nabeela Fashion, Jannah for Pasmira, Almara by Achmad Zaki

Finally! We're in the last part of my Surabaya Fashion Parade 2016 post series. This time, the shows were by Alphiana Chandrajani, Nabeela Fashion, Jannah for Pasmira, and Almara by Achmad Zaki.

Alphiana Chandrajani
Casual, masculine, a little bit ethnic. Dark colors dominated the collection of this moslem menswear.

K-lovers could be happy if they watched the show of Nabeela Fashion's "Catch & Match". The background musics were K-Pop songs and the styles were hip hop. Who says hijabi can't make a fast move?

And fyi, the designer was a girl kid. Unfortunately I didn't get the picture of her. Every body gave a big applause when she came into the runway.

Jannah for Pasmira
The long dresses were dark and simple.

Almara by Achmad Zaki
Honestly, this was not written on the invitation. So, when the show of Jannah for Pasmira ended, I thought it was the end of Moslem Runway. But a video about mother was played, and models were coming. The designs were varied, but I guess the emotion was about the nostalgic time with mothers or probably about the designer's mother.

Yeah, and the show ended! Moslem Runway was the only fashion show I came on Surabaya Fashion Parade 2016. Hope to come again to the next Surabaya Fashion Parade and being in the front row hopefully. Can anyone make this real, hahaha.



*I'm sorry. My camera was off in the middle of Jannah for Pasmira show, that's why the last show was taken with phone in bad quality.

Surabaya Fashion Parade 2016 Moslem Runway: Elmira, Maula, Juwita Heraris

Assalamualaikum, Pals...

Still from the Moslem Runway of Surabaya Fashion Parade 2016 that I attended last week, I'd like to share the next three collections I watched there. After sharing to you a glimpse about Ranti, Gemello, Elhijab, and Dwico in the last post, this is the time for Elmira by Saffana, Maula, and Juwita Heraris.

Elmira by Saffana
The words I say about this collection: feminine, bright, syar'i. You'll see layers of flowy fabrics, which is so girly I think. And the bright colorful colors comfort my eyes. The syar'i looks were such an Eid material.

In the beginning of the show, the audiences could see a video of 'Nemo' underwater. Then, a model wearing a bright pinky orange colors came. So eye-catchy! I thought I would be shown a collection full of bright pinky orange things, but no! The collection frankly represents the life underwater, from the 'Nemo' fish, seaweed, sea, shark, and even pearls. This is based on my perception, though. But really, I love the collection.

Juwita Heraris
After watching a collection of casual wears, we're provided the show of bridal collection. Themed "C'est Moi" (France: this is me), I could see beautiful gowns with the touch of 'European lady'. I really enjoyed the show because the background music was so 'Europe' too. And at that time, the girls probably imagined about their dream weddings, which gowns for reception and aqad suits them. I focused on taking pictures, though. Hahaha.

Okay, Pals. What do you think? Do you like the collection? Are you thinking about wearing them or, just like me, enjoying fashion in a fashion event? The review and explanation I wrote here and the last post and the next post about Surabaya Fashion Parade 2016 are purely my opinions and perceptions, guys. So, if you think of digging up about them, just google them and voila! You could find the true meaning of the designer. I'm trying to google them too anyway. So, see ya!



*Sorry for being late, but this is the last week of this semester and I have many tasks undone. Wish me luck! Thanks in advance, love you :*

Surabaya Fashion Parade 2016 Moslem Runway: Ranti, Gemello, Elhijab, Dwico

Assalamualaikum, Pals.

Do you know what May means in Surabaya? It is the month of celebration, big celebration. May is the birth month of Surabaya, so there are many interesting events like bazaars and parades held every May every year. I'm always excited with this big celebration, especially the Surabaya Fashion Parade.

Surabaya Fashion Parade is held every year, included in the series of Surabaya's big celebration. This year, Surabaya Fashion Parade held its 9th event in 2016, themed "Vismaya Navamika". Vismaya Navamika which in Sanskrit means nine glorious, SFP tried to photograph exotic batik and elegance of luxury fashion. And yes, we could see batik everywhere in the bazaar area.

Although, the runway was not just for batik. I got the chance to come this year and chose to come to the Moslem Runway on the 3rd day of this event. These are the glimpse of the designers' fashion show in the Moslem Runway. And yes, this will be in more than a post.

Seeing the collection, all I got was femininity. Pastel colors, organic form details, even with dark colors, I could see the feminine lady in the collection.

Bold, elegance, ethnicity. The ethnic fabrics combined with the bold of black shows the elegance in every piece of this collection. The fall of the fabrics on the models' body got my heart. Can't ignore every one of them.

Active woman is all I can see in this collection. The style varies but every piece of the collection is for active women's casual wear.

Unique, artistic, can't be understood (by me). My friend beside said, "when will they can be worn?". I can't answer.
