Floral pant

I still have the obsession towards floral printed pant.

And I have spotted this

Beautiful! I almost fainted. The moment I grabbed this, I thought myself as a lady with a great luck, like God has chosen you to be in such perfect situation, He met you with such great invention. You were selected!

"Oh my, I have to have this", I run my hands on it with a broad smile.

I showed this pant to my friends, and they were like,

"Are really going to buy this?"

"Hm, it would be nice if it's in the other colour".

"Where are going to wear this to? School?"

My response was, "Why? I think it's beautiful, perfect!"


Fine! I was not buying this. 3 against 1, I lost!

Out of 4 people, only 1 agree with this pant, that's me, and if I wear this to school with the ratio of 1:3, only 1/3 of the students are going to love my pant and the other will just maybe laugh over it!


That's the reason why I haven't even own one floral printed pant.

This makes me miss Malaysia. Gosh!

So close

I am really sorry if this post comes as a complaint but I don't really mean that actually, yet, honestly I don't mind if this post looks a lil bit like a rebuke or a reprimand or something, but yes yes yes I'm about to admonish about this

.. which I, myself was a little bit speechless too. I found this harsh, like you went into the shop and found a bag which had the same exact pattern like a blouse that you wore? As a customer, I felt so offensive. I mean how on earth do people have ever think of making a bag out of cloth scraps? How awful.

Few things to clarify. First, this was a designer cloth. It's a world wide company. I was expecting something like a special edition of it, cloth will only be cloth. Same goes to trousers. Unless they are planning to make them as a pair. Well, of course, sport suits are excepted. There's no such thing like a floral blouse with a floral bag. Ahh how disappointing.

Second, of course, you wouldn't wanna be looked like a fool wearing a blouse and having another people bringing those bags and accidentally meet up by any chance. Or maybe someone comes and tells you, "I saw a bag, just like your blouse".

(I experienced this. One year ago, I was wearing ThePopLook dress, wandering around the mall and I saw a girl wore the dress too, exactly like mine, green colour. I knew she noticed mine but we were pretending to not seeing each other, but I saw her boyfriend laughing and whispering into her ears while looking to my dress. My aunt laughed so hard too, sigh. But this was forgiven. It's a dress).

Third, it's about satisfaction. You spent 200LE for a blouse and guess what, you're getting your blouse a resemble set of fabric-material-bag? Tell me, are you really going to wear them together? To the park enjoying the spring, maybe? Funny, not.


Well, of course, I'm not going to bring this up to their customer services (like I always do to Celcom, RHB Bank and some public transportation companies), it's not that I'd like to complain or something, but apparently we have a right. I believe every companies have their own targets in satisfying their customers. If they don't do their things right, I don't think it's a wrong to make some complaints or suggestions, so they will improve.

Trust me, good companies will take their customers seriously. Of course, customers are like money to them.

So yeah, I'm still wearing the blouse.

Scary leaf

I was taking a subject called Botany last semester, basically I learned about plants, just like its name. Boring, I know. But sometimes it could be exciting especially when we had a lab session. Fun! Very.

We had to study about every inch of the leaf, examined under the microscope about the parts of a leaf to the very core. Determined which one is xylem, phloem bla bla bla.

This was what I made.

Spirited leaf, Ha Ha Ha.  (This was a Senna leaf)

This was true. Of course, I won't make up any story haha. You can see there's something like a scary face in it. This was a transverse section of a leaf. Cut the leaf according to the right procedure, drop some chemicals and put it under a microscope - and you can see a scary face smiling at you. 

Those pink curves were the cells called collenchyma, I took forever to memorize this. And the eye-like things were the phloems, you learned it in Science. And the teeth are xylems. Amazing, right?
