Ok. So I wrote this awhile ago but it’s still (sort of) relevant!
Phew! So many plans for the future! So many past events and activities!
Loads have been done and we’ve had a blast with all of them! So much so, that we neglect our cameras because we’re so focussed on the task at hand. Or maybe I should just be speaking for myself. I’m not very good with capturing every single moment.
The Hari Raya season was especially busy for us because we know how important the celebration is to most of you. Everyday was exciting and we were all in high spirits. There were new arrivals of traditional wear almost every single day and being able to watch the garments roll in to our office was the best part of it all! The collection we had this year was gorgeous and most of them exclusive to us so we were all mega excited! And then the holidays came and it was the first time being apart for more than the duration of a weekend! I think we all had withdrawal symptoms!
Raya lasts a whole month and open houses are spread out within that time frame. Nani, our Operations Manager had one just for us, saying she was going to do the cooking herself so we all loaded ourselves into cars and drove all the way. I don’t even need to tell you how good the food was, but I will! It was a spread and I had two helpings of chicken rice! We all asked for recipes thinking we were going to attempt them ourselves. As if!
Fadza and Vivy had an open house too, inviting us to their new home. We went after work, tummies growling and in typical Fadza and Vivy fashion (uh, more Vivy really), they weren’t home when we arrived!
I managed to capture this moment though! Bored. Asma’ and I even decided to take pictures of our shoes! Yawn.
We didn’t have to wait long before Vivy came rushing to the door with plastic bags of food. Yeah, she tapau-ed. But of course.
It was so good to be able to relax together. Ex FV members like Afzan and Zaahira came as well so it was nice to catch up! Before the end we took “family photos”. Set the camera on timer mode and gathered at the couch. I don’t have the pictures with me (you’ll have to harass Vivy) but they are too funny! I think you’ll love them! We are such a good team and we know how to have fun and make each other laugh
The 3rd open house we went to was Fadza’s at his parents’ house. Food was in abundance as usual and it was delicious! There was apam balik and durian and something quite out of the ordinary… Deer meat! I had to try that.
Here are some photos:
Meanwhile in the office, photo shoots are conducted as normal. We still goof off on a regular basis, listening/watching YouTube videos and teasing each other in general. We know too much about each other I think! Sometimes it gets a little TMI! But I’m glad we’re like this. The working environment would be totally different otherwise!
Another moment I managed to capture was this one of the girls watching a YouTube video suggested by Kim. This was what we were watching – http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fNF4siu5vAo. Tell me what you think! We watch the weirdest stuff!
It’s late at night so that’s all for the moment. We promise to update more often. I’ve been chasing the team for blog posts, trust me! It’s just that we have so many plans. Promise. Hope you enjoyed this Signing out.
