kulit si syra.

I almost had a heart attack yesterday afternoon after checking out SyraSkin’s calendar for 2014 and 2015! Most dates are already booked so I apa lagi, immediately emailed them to enquire on their availability and sepantas kilat dan petir transferred the $50 deposit to them.

Henna – settled!

My colleague shared with me that in North India, the husband’s name will be hidden in the intricate henna motifs and the husband will have to find where his name is hidden!

The Mehendi or henna motif is not only the adoration of the bride rather it epitomizes her transformation from a virgin girl to a temptress for her husband. As per Kama Sutra, henna is one of the sixty four arts of women. Popular motifs of the bridal mehendi are conchshell, flowers, Kalash, peacock, doli and baraat patterns. The intricate motifs of the bridal henna also hide the husband’s name. It is said that the husband’s name in the intricate henna motifs is made for the groom who has to find his name in his bride’s mehendi as an evidence of his sharp eyes and active brain to impress his girl.

Ish, the other half tk perlu la cari-cari nama ni semua. You’ve impressd me enough over the years, hiakhiakhiak (ketawa miang).

Anyway, this is the kind of design that appeal to me thus far:


Abstract with a tinge of simplicity, I guess? Because from the start I just wanted those seketul-seketul inai on my fingers but idea was immediately shot down by Mum on the pretext that kahwin cuma sekali so must make the best out of everything hahaha.

That’s why la she has 17 pasang baju on her wedding day -_-

  1. Lucky my mum nvr shot down the idea of wearing that seketul dua ketul inai. Hahaha
    I like this motif! Very lace like… Suka! Ouh I realise org dulu suka tukar baju 17 pasang (or more than 10 kind) even my mum pakai 17 pasang. I’m amazed dgn bride zaman dulu, sanggup salin hahah… If me dah malas agaknye

    • Hahahaha so lucky you! I ingat pakai seketul-seketul gitu macam traditional and vintage gitu kan… but apakan daya, si ibu tk setuju hahahaha.

      I know right! If i kena pakai 17 pasang, I rasa I give up and tknk naik pelamin cos dah kepenatan -.-

  2. hahaha, 17 pasang mcm norm for orang2 dulu, all sorts of baju they change, with all the baju all sorts of nationalities they became in one day, jepun la, india la! hehe

    • Hahah I think thats why my Mum suka! She was Korean, Japanese, Javanese and yang sewaktu dengannya – all in TWO DAYS!

      And her wedding as three days. taknak kalah betul!

  3. So kalau yang groom kes name Sivarajamuthujayandran s/o Rajagopalkumaran amacam mau selit kat tapak tangan geng? HAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHHAHAHA

  4. wah! lucky my mum kasi pakai inai seketul seketul tu. kalau tak, i go on a strike.

    and my future in laws tanya asal baju sikit sgt? asal pakai 3 baju aje? dorang pakai 12 baju. kalau pakai 12 baju, baik tak payah turun duduk kat pelamin kan. amik gambar dlm bilik aje. hahahaha. tukar baju sampai pengsan.
