Heat+Fast= breezy outfit

Heat, hot, thirst. 31 degrees inside the house. Don't even ask me about how hot is it outside!

I went to Yokohama to run some errands and by the time I got home I was sweating like a pig (why do they say that, I never seen pigs sweat.Then again, I have never been close enough to a pig to check).
Thank GOD I wore something breezy.

Here is what I whore:

My son snapped this pic while I was giving him instructions

Scarf - Jerusalem Halal Meats
Oversized tee or top - H&M
Red orange pants - H&M
Sandals - Dollhouse via Ross
Bag - Some random shop in Seoul

I also liked what I wore yesterday, although I did not take pics. I went to Sakuragicho to meet with my friend Chrissy from Taiwan. She came to Japan with her parents and decide to rekindle with her friends from college. We were tight back then bonding over Sex and the City and clothes and boys. On that day we went shopping at Collete Mare and had fun checking stuff out. Then we went to the park next to my house to watch Fireworks joined by a Japanese former college mate. Japanese Summer equals Fireworks. Back when my hubby and I just married, we would go anywhere to check them out. But now with kids, it is so much work with the huge crowd, we do not attend them. How lucky that the park  next door provides a great view minus the crowd.
I wore my flower printed shirt from Thai and my white pants. It was a no fuss, no muss outfit.

With my friend Chrissy after the fireworks

These past weeks, that is all I have been wearing: easy to put on, breezy outfits. If I could, I would walk around wearing short shorts and barely there tees. But I can't so I stick to maxi dresses, maxi skirts, and tee shirts with not so heavy pants.
Summer is over for me. My son will start school next week which means that I will be busy taking him to school but also socialising with the mothers who will all be back to Japan. I had a great Summer, doing activities with the kiddies but also experimenting with my outfits and my blogs. I gained a lot of weight but that did not stop me from stepping out of my comfort zone (jeans and flats). Come to think of, I only wore my Mummy jeans (aka my blue skinny jeans) once. Every other time I was out, I wore maxi skirts, maxi dresses, bold prints and colors. I could not be prouder of myself. I just hope that by the time school starts again, I will not fall back into my mommy ways and wear the same variation of the same outfit.
Will see!

A la Camerounaise

Remember when I said that I was never going to change my style, because I like what I like (which is to be comfortable)?

Well I lied! My style is slowly changing. As my love life is in shambles at the moment ( I will get to that in a future post, I promise), I feel the need to go for a drastic change. I have contemplated the idea of cutting my hair (been there, done that!), dying it blond/ red or just forget this Hijabi thing all together. But as always, it is in the clothing department that I get to transform myself.

Truth be told, I am sure that even when things were perfectly normal at home, I would still go with a style change. The reason being that I am influenced at work. Women at my job are very simple and casual but they can turn the heat up from time to time. My favorite day is Friday when almost every one get to dress up in Traditional Attire. As someone who does not have many traditional attires, I am amazed at all the designs and styles out there. My eyes are feasting and …

When after work turns into a Fashion shoot

I went to my first "After work" the other day. For those who do not know what that is, "After work" is when colleagues get together for drinks or diner after work. Oups! I forgot to tell you! I started working for an international aid agency recently. I finally found myself a job that I also happen to like. Praise the Lord! I have been working for the last few months. It is challenging but I get to learn so many new things. And the best part are the people I get to work with particulalry the ladies. I enjoy them, every single one of them for they all have interesting personalities. They are also hilarious. I spend my days laughing. And I could not be more grateful to God for that!
Since two of my co workers were leaving (sad part of my job: people do not tend to work there for a long time), we decided to surprise them with an "After work"/ farewell party. We went to Marina Bay, which is a seaside hotel with a fabulous pool located in a hip area called …

Ramadan Lethargy

Hello dears.

How are you?

And for those fasting, how is your Ramadan so far?

We are in the last week of Ramadan and I am feeling great. I cannot complain.
However I could not help but notice a certain lethargy that has engulfed the town and the people living in it. since the beginning of Ramadan. For starters people go to work later than usual because they are still trying to catch some sleep between the time they eat and pray in the morning and the time they go to work. It is harder particularly for women who wake up early to cook something for their families. Even when you get organized and cook something the night before going to bed, you still have to get up earlier to heat it up. And most women I know are not content on cooking something simple, like ordinary breakfast. They want to make elaborate meals that would please their families. They feel the pressure more than anybody else, and they sleep also less.
This lack of sleep can have some serious consequences on the body and the m…
