2 ‘BEAUTIES’ were used to be can’t live without & still do


Do you know what is that ‘thing’ above?

It is called
Celak Mekah. Works like an eyeliner.

I’m pretty sure that some of you do know that and probably has been using it. Anyone wants to confess that you have been using Celak Mekah too?

Believe it or not that Celak Mekah ‘has been’ with me since I think I was 11 years old. The content always refillable once it finished of course but the container up till today, roughly almost 20 years old! Ha,ha, now you know my age, huh? Nope. That is not exactly my age you’re guessing because I could’nt recall when I’m actually got it from my mom.

My mom actually obtained that from a friend whom went to Mecca (Mekah) to perform haj & as she got more than one, she gave one to me. When mom told me that applying Celak Mekah can brightened up eyes & cure ‘rabun’ (farsighted), I got all excited. Used to think that I can stop wearing my first and ugly spectacles back then.

Sigh…yeah, been using it every single day right after it became my possession till I learnt applying the commercial eyeliner after graduated from UiTM.

That long, huh? And my eyes? I’m still rabun okay. Ha!Ha!

It’s funny though how I could get away with the Celak Mekah during those school days but me, myself would caught few girls wearing ‘cutex’ (nail colours), jewelleries & make-up whenever we the school’s prefect did spot-check. Ha!Ha! I guess the possible explanation of my escapade, the Celak just ‘blend-in’ to my eyes!

Hemmm…such a nostalgic. Though, nowadays I wear my beloved celak once in a while when I ‘feel’ the longing & sometimes at home, it always be my favourite BEAUTIES.

Let’s move on to another BEAUTIES.

Guess…guess…guess!!

Still can’t figure it out what it is?

😛 It is….home-made face powder or famously known as BEDAK SEJUK.

The credit should goes to my mom. She is an expert making BEDAK SEJUK and me yet to learn how to make it from her. Planned to really learn it from her during the next long Raya holidays. That’s my wish. Not just observing but totally hands-on training. The process took some time, I mean up to one year, you know & the smell of half-finished production can be quiet nasty. Ah! What the heck. As long as I know how to make it before regretted not having the lesson.

You know, my 2 elder sisters never looked high on that BEDAK SEJUK but me as always think it is such a wonderful creation! It’s a very fine powder, smooth & silky to your skin plus the cooling effect. I stongly believe that over the years being a faithful user of it, it does help combat those nasty acne away. About being fairer? Yup. Strongly believe must be because of BEDAK SEJUK too.

Hemm….guess that the tradition never fades in me though how modernised I lead my life now. Some things remains special & true to my heart.

Raya Vogue (Is it?) Preps : Tudung Raya

Me tengah belek-belek, selak-selak majalah di atas tu. Majalah ni dah beli bertahun-tahun yang lepas tapi gaya tudung & jenis-jenis tudung masih tak outdated. Nak cari idea nak melaram raya nanti & lately terfikir nak ubah penampilan.

Semalam sepatutnya nak cari masker Mustika Ratu, ganti masker yang hilang, alih2 ter-‘jumpa’ baju raya. Oh, me dah bertahun tak tempah baju raya & kain ela pemberian orang dah membukit tapi tetap me tak pegi hantar tempah. So, kebiasannya me akan cari baju raya last-minute-lah.

Seronok sangat boleh maintan ‘frugalicious’ di pagi raya & my baju raya tak sampai pun RM 150, lengkap ngan tudung matching lagi! Siap dapat shawl as free gift ngan sampul duit raya. Tak sabar nak bergaya ngan kebaya ‘Perempuan Melayu Terakhir’ di pagi raya nanti..Voila! Oh, tak boleh snap pic itu baju raya skarang kena, tunggu raya, yer!

Di bawah ini adalah antara wajah-wajah me ngan stail pemakaian tudung atau selendang. Me rasa bosan dok menggayakan tudung cam gitu jer.

Nanti, nak buat makeover sikit. Ahaks!

Anda pula bagaimana gaya tudung menjadi pilihan hati?

What is Sanguine, Choleric & Melancholy?

Let’s Have Fun With Popular Sanguine

The lift of joy in times of trouble
The touch of innocence in a jaded era
The word of wit when we’re weighted down
The lift of humor when we’re heavyhearted
The ray of hope to blow away our black cluds
The enthusiasm and energy to start over and over again
The creativity and charm to color a drab day
The simplicity of a child in complex situations


Let’s Get Moving With Powerful Choleric

The firm control when others are losing theirs.
The cut of decision for foggy minds.
The grip of leadership to head us to the good
The willingness to take a chance in a doubtful situation.
The confidence to hold true in the face of ridicule.
The independence to stand alone and be counted.
The road map to life when we’re gone astray
The urge to ‘take arms against a sea of troubles and, by opposing, end them.’

Let’s Get Organized With Perfect Melancholy

The depth to see into the heart and soul of life.
The artistic nature to appreciate the beauty of the world.
The talent to create a masterpiece where nothing existed before.
The ability to analyze and arrive at the proper solution
The eye for detail while others do shoddy work.
The aim to finish what they start.
The pledge,”If it’s worth doing, it’s worth doing right.”
The desire to “do all things decently and in order.”

And…let’s not forget another personality trait…

Let’s Relax With Peaceful Phlegmatic

The stability to stay straight on course.
The patience to put up with provokers.
The ability to listen, while others have their say.
The gift of mediation, uniting opposite forces.
The purpose of peace at almost any price.
The compassion to comfort those hurting.
The determination to keep your head, while all around are losing theirs.
The will to live in such a way that even your enemies can’t find anything bad to say about you.

So..which one suits you most?

**Many thanks to Florence Littauer,”Personality Plus” (1983) & Kak Ruziah for this book.**
