Aren't they precious?

Assalamualaikum Everyone!

Happy National Day! I wish I was there. I miss the good ol' choir times. Its the only time of the year when being a hardcore patriotic isn't cuckoo~. Haha! Nadabah. Ofcourse sayang Brunei to pieces. Its the food that i miss the most.
Anyway, I found something online that might interest you! After asking for the owner's permission, ofcourse.
Lace & Bits started in december last year. You can get intricate lace from Indonesia IN BRUNEI! Very very beautiful. The average price is around 250 for 2 meters. so yeah...Siuk cuci mata. No harm getting some for those special days.
Incase you are wondering, these kain is only available as sample and viewing, for now. And whoever is interested in buying, the seller will order it. Just for you~
Just take a look at the laces and manik. Its awesome!!!
For more information just check the website out

The marroon one...to die for!

Enjoy the pictures. I can think of 1001 style designs with these laces... OMG!~~ Anyway, take care people.

What's coming: LONDON FASHION WEEKEND, bayybehh! Got the tickets!

Dropping By...I miss Sewing....

Assalamualaikum Everyone...

How is everyone?

I'm doing fine. Tonnes of essay and projects to do. Not to mention my dissertation. But hey, its all worth it. 9 more months and I will be back in Brunei and I am definitely going to continue sewing beads! or shall I say 'beading' (what a strange word- beading-).

Im interested in expanding my business but hey, i need to have a business plan and everything by september. Owh well...let's see. (Thats the plan for now, Insya Allah). I don't see a reason why I should not expand. Especially, when brunei culture is full of fancy beading! Wedding Occasions, Working, Dinner etc.

I miss sewing sooo sooo much. I miss the colourful shiny beads. I miss the kedai manik where I usually go. The manik here are ugly, in fact even if there are pretty ones, they are MASSIVELY OVERPRICED. (Defeats the purpose if I buy it).

It has been ages since this blog has been updated. Im trying to make it more 'updated' soon.

Insya-Allah I will post some materials that might interest you soon. You know, how beading is on the other side of the world.

Owh! It was snowing heavily yesterday. Pwettty! Love it! Apparently, the heaviest in 18 years!

C U Soon.

Love - Rai
