Tribal Braids

The Still Carvings Tribal Braids with different colour designs. These will be available at the MiaMia StyleStudio show tomorrow, Saturday 30 June, 2012 at the Airport Mall, Second Floor - 8PM. These are $4 and are adjustable so you don't need to worry about them not fitting or being too big. Anything is possible in the Still Carvings whimsical world! LOL!

I will be making more of these soon so if you're keen, you either head down to MMSS tomorrow night, or you can email me at to order your bracelets!

(Should I say "Be there or be square?")

Still Carvings Journey - KL


Another milestone in the Still Carvings journey.
My bracelets have reached Kuala Lumpur!!!
Will be collaborating with my friend in July for her new releases. InsyAllah, should be a great beginning for the both of us. Thanks for giving me this opportunity to grow and expand. Such a great blessing. Am leaning towards expanding in KL, with help from lovely Wani. I hope that this will be the start of something big. 

And also, presenting the new Still Carvings collections!! 
Enter the Still Carvings Tribal Braid (available as they are and I also have a collection with hexes); and the Still Hex Macrame. It was a special request by Wani, herself, but now I would like to include it in the official Still Hex collection!!  Thank you, Allah, for giving me the gift of time and strength to push myself forward.

I will be releasing more of the Tribal Braid ones in the next post! 
And more about Still Hex Macrame in the near future.

Such a great day amidst how busy I have been with le career *jumps in colourful joy*

Of any kind is still useful for the mind and the soul.

Hence obtaining knowledge of those who have the tendency to use you for their own benefit can be quite endearing. Sometimes I don't quite get why a person would have that lack of compassion for other people's feelings and just push things to go their way. And doing this without giving credit to those who has helped them so many times before. Why so cocky?

Just read a great quote from someone that reads: Champions aren't made in gyms. Champions are made from something they have deep inside them - a desire, a dream, a vision. They have to have the skill, and the will. But the will must be stronger than the skill. This was by Muhammad Ali, the boxer. And can definitely be applied by people from all walks of life.

When you desire for something, work hard for it. Do it on your own. Because that's the most rewarding.

Well this only teaches me the lesson of always treating others the correct way and not otherwise. The fruit of your own produce is much more tasty than the ones you may have pretended to help the other person to plant but the other has had to go through the sowing themselves.

Fierceness of Mia!

Miss Mia Suria of MiaMia StyleStudio seen wearing Still Carvings' creations - the Still Hex Bracelet, Still Carvings 'Mia Glam' taken after Mia's own robust personality and an unreleased Still Carvings Jungle Beads.

It is ALWAYS an honour to see faces strutting my creations, especially when they are as fierce as Mia!

Would also like to congratulate my darling, Mia, for the opening of her studio of style - MiaMia StyleStudio. Couldn't be happier looking at the success of someone who started from scratch. Now that's real hard work, ladies and gents. And on top of that, she is promoting modest fashion to the ladies of Brunei! How can you ever not be smitten?

Wishing Mia all the best and good luck for the future. May Allah bless you with abundance of rizq and may you be rewarded hugely for promoting modesty to others. Amin.

A little quiet time

Just a little quiet time with myself in the comfort of my room.

It's been quite an eventful long weekend. Life is definitely good. Alhamdulillah.

More bracelets coming out. I don't know how soon that'll be. Sometimes it's better to be late than sorry, hey? At least I like to think of it that way. Made a few bracelets today. Some will be sent out tomorrow and the rest Wednesday.

Oh, before I forget, the Weave&Chain Bracelets are still open for orders btw. You know how cool it is to discover that you actually have got a lot of those chains in your treasure box from when you first started and didn't know what to do with them (or you got over-ambitious but overlooked at the time you got to spare doing this thing) - and then you think oh, shucks, I ain't got no more chains to make, seems like I have to close orders - then upon that discovery, and seeing how many floss you've got left, you decide that hey, I can go completely nuts with these!!!

So yes, if you'd like to get some just email me as usual and/or FB inbox me. Those of you with my number, I am a Whatsapp away!

Why so melancholy?

I'm back to reality. My break is officially over *cries* Need more need more need more!

Outfit was worn last Friday whilst basking in the heat of the Sun. It is such a lush dress! Love it even more that it can double as an abaya. The bagginess of it all makes me want more of it! I am totally doing a free advertising here, but if you want the same shirt maxi you can get it HERE! And was totally going for minimalism which obviously failed coz I was excessively accessorising (when put into the "abaya"-ness context - not really when you've seen my skull bracelet - oh the confusion!)

But anyhoot, I is feeling refreshed-ish from the break. I can make do with more but I need to feed myself too. 9AM on Monday, one hour since I came to work and already I'm thinking about Israk Mi'raj holidays. Oh, mondieu.
