Tudung Kak Mon

Today is a pretty mandom day for me. The rain holds me back from my gardening. The boys, can't have fun outside so they fight inside. But let's not use that as an excuse to just laze around, shall we. Plus, we need rain, should not complaint about it. No rain no water maa.

I decided to get into my 'organizing' mode today. Nothing big, just re-organising my tudung. I can't do much with the kids around since they'll 'help' me in so many ways.

Anyway, just some personal note - I first donned hijab when I was in pre-U. I was 18. I didn't know what prompted me, it just happended. Like, 'eh nak pakai tudung la' and so it began. When I was in secondary school, there was one ustazah who fiercely warned us (at that time, lots of us not wearing tudung) about not covering. Did I mention fierce? Yep she was. I know she meant well but not all things should be done in such way when she still have other ways to convince us all. Like, you'll be rewarded for something you do instead of you'll be punished for not doing. This is just my thinking k.

Here's are what were to be organized today. Some dated wayyyy back during the time I've just started working. That's more that 13 years oredi! The versatile bawal that is. (bawal as in voile yer, not bawal as in pomfret). The latest being some shawls and syria. And some inners to go with those.



So, folded, unfolded, tried on, pondered upon. Here's are those I am keeping. Some will be given away.

Left - Plain chiffon.
Middle - Plain bawal or voile. again, those are not pomfrets okay.
Right - Cottons for jogging, gardening. yes, I have dedicated tudungs for vigorous activities. soft yet strong cottons. the ones you wouldn't mind to lap peluh with.



Left - Combination of syria and their inners, and Tie-Racks scarves
Middle - Combination of satin 'jemputan' from Sumatera and Mortada.
Right - Donatella (they were famous once okay). 2 top most are given by my parents after coming back from Hajj.



Left - Plain instant hijab.
Middle - Patterned instant hijab.
Right - shawls. I have just started my collection. Expect them to grow.



The 'uncategorized' or rather under the label 'miscellaneous'. Note the blue and orange. FOC from the company I worked for. Opsie.. correction work not worked.



This is my very first satin inner. Now can the designer come forward and tell us all who the model was? Coz people with head such as mind find our ears all terkelepet and red at the end of the day. Not just that, we went 'whattt??? boleh cakap kuat sikit?? this inner really make our telinga pengappp!!'
