My very own business - get beautiful with Premium Beautiful!

Siapa la akan terfikir (eh, ada ke orang nak terfikir apa-apa tentang I selain encik Suami terchenta?) yang I akan join a business? I was not business-minded pun all this while! I am always this someone with the user mindset (ni payah ni kalau nak kerja jadi vendor..)

And what’s more, I joined Premium Beautiful business! The business for ladies - that was my impression. I bukan lady kah? Nama blog pun Lady Rora kan.. Memang la lady… Lady yang tak lady-like sangat. Hehe.

At first I thought I won’t have a reason to join this business. I did read a few blogs that sell Premium Beautiful. Quite a number of success stories from girls who are doing this business. But I never felt there is a need to do the same. To feel envious memang jauh sekali la. I tak pernah rasa jealous pun kat anyone for anything except if they beat me in studies. Tapi tu sampai zaman SPM je la.. Sebab kat Uni, title pelajar cemerlang tu orang lain dah ambil (and I pun tak kuasa nak kiasu2 lagi dah cuz my Uni life was a great one too..) 

And so.. this is my first post to tell the world about my business. Yeahh.. Online business. Dah lama terfikir nak buat. Tapi at that time, I was really clueless on what to sell. Nak dapat baju2 from China/ Korea tu I am not so interested. In the end, I choose to be a distributor for Premium Beautiful. Thanks to Naa and Hanis Haizi for that evening meet-up. I left the meeting with a heart with determination!

Meet-up with Hanis Haizi @ Aseana Cafe KLCC

So.. interested to get a hold of this wonderful corset? Contact me then.. at 0192787433. Email pun okay jer. ya :) Nak good price boleh.. :)

Have I tried the corset personally? Of cos laa..!! Nanti I upload gambar k. Tak sempat2 nak amik gambar sendiri lagi..

Mula-mula memang rasa mencabar jugak nak pakai. Tapi berkat tunjuk ajar my sponsor, Naa, dah pandai pakai sekejap je without any help. Naa kata boleh pakai in 2 minutes' time, so of cos la I can do it kan.
It's really different from the corset that I bought for myself masa time2 nak kahwin dulu.. Kalau pakai corset lama tu je, sure akan dapat kesan dawai tu. And worse, my skin macam melecet jugak la.. mana taknya, tangan ni kan gatal je nak garu kalau ada discomfort. Huhu.. sudahnya corset tu tersimpan dalam almari dengan jayanya lepas wedding. Ntah mana dah the full set.

PB ni, what's special about it is that the material is soft and comfy to be worn the entire day, apart from the fact that it has FIR (memang I dah tak yah nak singgah2 spa untuk pergi sauna FIR tu dah) Apatah lagi I'm currently exclusively breastfeeding my baby.  No, Premium Beautiful does not interfere with breastfeeding! I'm so glad. Apa2 benda yang interfere with my breastfeeding is my musuh you know! Ok2, not musuh la.. I anggap macam cabaran la.. and the best of all, Premium Beautiful is not one of them at all! And right now, I need the support, which I totally cannot get by wearing nursing bra. So far nursing bra yang ada underwire hanyalah Autumnz je, but itupun cannot provide support. Sangat menyedihkan.. Yeah.. the love-hate relationship between me and my nursing bras. Isk.

But I know, if those yang pakai PB ni aimnye nak kurus, kena la berdisiplin ye. Pakai PB in daily manner, and maintain a good diet too! Tak guna la pakai PB tapi hari2 bantai roti canai 4 keping kan.. Ntah2 exercise pun tak mampu nak habiskan kalori sebanyak 4 keping roti canai iteuuww..

Oklah, nanti ai mengarang lagi. Tomorrow will be a long day at work. Arrgghhh.. Working from home is always the best option forever! Tapi for now, itu mimpi yang belum menjadi kenyataan lagi laa..

Til then, loves from me, your Premium Beautiful agent!

* Siti Nurhaliza pun depend dengan PB..

Episod rumah baru: Garden Homes Bangi

1st October 2011. A fresh start for Papa, Mama and Zara. In our new home ;)

Finally.. after months of waiting, we have now moved to our own house in Garden Homes, Bangi!

The house was started to be renovated soon after Zara was delivered. We knew we shouldn't wait any longer since we already gotten the house key before Papa got back from the UK.

After like 2 months + of renovation, designing our own kitchen and TV cabinets (and getting them to be completed by the contractor pun lama jugak!) and a few weeks of scouting for furniture (believe me, we were sickeningly choosy..) we were ready to move in.. yay~! after all the hard work.. Sian Papa.. he was the planner, he was the designer of the bathrooms and cabinets (and I got to do the approving part je.. hehe.. was in confinement kan.. sure la tak larat) he was the project manager.. semualah. Really, kudos to you sayang :) Memang well-rounded habis.

Right now, the basic furniture are already in. Maybe if we have time to go to HomeDec exhibition this weekend, maybe we'll find more interesting things to buy. I just can't stop thinking about that Dyson fan... arrghhh..

So peeps, these are a few pics of the house that we took over the months.. and how it looks like now ;)

Renovation works ongoing. Everything was dumped at the car porch, huhu.. Belum scrub2 lagi lantai porch neh..

Air cond guy installing the mounting bracket. I think the guy in white was Acin, our plaster ceiling + wiring contractor. I call him Chuck Bass cuz he had the berlagakkss attitude.

I love the mosaic on the wall. The cabinet installation really took quite some time to be completed. Yeah, alright, impatient me.

So okay.. rumah dah siap.. So here's how it looks like presently..

The living room. Someone asked us if we bought the TV cabinet from Ikea. Haha, no we didn't. It was designed by Hubby and me, after doing a lot of googling on modern TV cabinets. The curtains were tailored by The Living Depot, Bangi. They measured, helped us with the curtain choices and installed them up. They have good discounts too. 

The dining room. Yeah, you must be thinking that we may have this 'white' fetish kan? Haha. not really anyway. Just suka dengan dining set ni. Tu je :)

The kitchen - my face place! While my Hubby was in the UK, I had lots of time to shop alone. So I did my share of scouting for choices of kitchen cabinet (especially!) among other things, and learned a lot from cabinet vendors. I was thoroughly educated on pressboards, solid surface top, granite top, concrete top, melamine door, acrylic door, 3G door, 4G door....etc. If you are a choosy lot, you'll find that there are many ways to minimize the cost (and many ways to increase the cost too, haha!). We chose to use quartz top, which costs more than granite top. Yeah, agak mahal la.. but it's worth it, because I know myself. I'm careless. Quartz top (and granite top) will not be stained by spills of turmeric powder or curry power. Ni pun dah a few times tersprinkle curry powder atas top. A lot of things I can write about cabinets. Tapi hm, malas la nak cerita lebih2. Just ask me (or pergi je la kedai cabinet kan :D) if you wanna know more.

The bedroom. The bed pun putih jugak. Ornamented divine bed and 11" Sweetdream mattress. Tilam memang sedap la kan.. Lesson learnt from the mattress in my room back in Sg Buloh.. asyik sakit pinggang je. The red background tu saja je. Nampak meriah sikit.

The main bathroom. We totally revamped this bathroom. The color was inspired by KL Convention Centre toilet (claimed by Hubby lah.. he usually has events going there.. and he actually snapped a few photos of the toilet there and bought the tiles to follow its color)

And my little darling Zara makin enjoy mandi in her Puj Tub. Got it soon after my boss told me I had to go outstation. It's like a mobile bath place for babies up to 6 months. Mandi kat sink je eh sayang.. kurang la sikit sakit pinggang mama.. :)

Housewarming? In the plan.. In the plan.. Hopefully before end of the year. Hubby says we might need to do it in batches, sebab kitaorg malas nak rearrange the furniture. Nape malas? Because we are the only 2 adults in the house.. and orang perempuan mana boleh angkat heavy things.. Especially after delivery. Lagi kena jaga tau. 
Hehe. Just wait for our invitation ya bebehs!
