Thanks to popular media like ‘Confessions of a Shopaholic’, people often feel scared to own and use a credit card. When I was told I would need to use one, I feared for my savings.Read More
A very proud moment for the Brunei fashion scene this year, as Kava and Humaira braved the stage and showed their work on the KL Fashion Week Runway.
I’m sure this has taken a large amount of time in preparation for this competition, and to my eyes, they are winners, because they have SHOWN the world that Brunei has talent.
Kava by Siti Nazmah
Kava was expressing her vision of what modest street fashion is like. It takes skill to present an all-black collection, and she mastered it by adding sporty details, as well as mixing prints and textures into the loose-fitting design for an instant seasonal edgy update. And how could I not love the printing work at the back? Talk about #back-gasm!
Humaira's collection went for the deconstructed design, which is a huge trend this season. She also went for a preppy anime-esque vibe with her styling! Obsessed! It is also impressive how she was able to manipulate buttoned shirts and created a draping effect. I would want to take that bodice as part of my staple collection.
Congratulations to all of you, because this is a milestone not just for you, but for our humble abode. Keep on inspiring the youth of our nation with your creativity.

Serenity is not freedom from the storm, but peace amidst the storm. ~unknown
The holy month of Ramadhan is here! It is blessed month that serves as a golden opportunity for Muslims to cultivate ourselves with good manners and to strengthening our relationship with our Creator.
One of the effective ways for me is by reciting the Al-Quran and reflecting upon its meaning. Recently, I sought some serenity in my chaotic life, and why is it so important to me?
It is like finding peace and tranquility within us, so we don't only look at the circumstances and difficulties in life and despair.
As we build our relationship to Allah, we began to believe in His promises which make us persevere with patience when faced with the most unimaginable tests. I, for one, have slowly built genuine acceptance of everything in my life including my past, my present, my circumstances and my destiny.
When we act purely for Allah, we are free from longing for any recognition or approval from anyone else.
How do you observe your Ramadhan, my Muslim readers?
