Kuala Lumpur is a place where you can find or found anything that you want or desire. Never in my dictionary will step into this city after I heard many bad incidents from the local news and my friends. Still I need to love KL because there where fashion capital for Malaysia. Everything changed after I've been invited to WW Magazine Launching in Kuala Lumpur by Datin RahmahJan Sulaiman Khan (Owner of W Publication & RJ Couture-JKhan) & Wirda Adnan (Editor-in-Chief of WW Magazine). I, with big open hands said "Yes, I will come and support both of you my dear sisters". It is a happy moment for me been invited by two top powerful women in Malaysia's fashion industry. Silly me not one knows that it will be my first time to KL and honestly I do feel afraid if anything happen to me. Well, Kuala Lumpur is a big city and people didn't care what will be happening to you if you been robbed or maybe an accident. But I didn't said that KL is a horrible city. Every big cities in this world have their own story,right? Deep in my heart, I wish to stay and work here.
My mind and soul changed automatic after I saw how busy and unique KL city. My eyes pop and rolling like poping eye-balls when the minute the ride cruise entering KL city. There branded boutiques,chic restaurants and cafes not forget cool fashionable pedestrians. It was a great relief, away from my hectic daily life and concentrate with I passionate in. Here, I from Sabah with big hope "report for duty" following with my friend Mr.Nicky the photographer. I guess I getting more and more in love become a fashion and social observer. Observe,Experience it and WRITE! much better for me. I'm a working guy and work totally out from what I interested (Art & Fashion). While, What I doing now is to fulfill my soul desire. There was me day-dreaming what going be happen as soon I arrive at JW Marriott Hotel. Everything stop when the moment driver said "Okey, We finally arrived..Sir." I feel like I want to hop around because too happy! Then, JW Marriott's hotelier ushered us to the lobby area. There I saw Datin RJ and her sister Bey waiting for us. My friends and I was welcome with big smile and hugs by them. We do feel safe with Datin RJ and her family around.
My friends and I did followed Datin RJ cruising around to see Louis Vuitton and Christian Dior boutique at Starhill Gallery before all of us off to Pavillion for lunch at Madam Kwan. After taking our yummy lunch then off to Suria KLCC. Everything for me so fast and in my mind "I need to adapt with my sounding very fast if not jadi lah budak kebinggungan" but thank God I still okey and able to adapt. One thing I realized about KL shopping malls sememangnya wangi dan rasa segar jak. In one day I able to experience and do my observation more closer about branded things. Touch here touch there, feel the seam on the dresses, high quality material in each luxurious bags or dresses and amazing sexy shoes. Miu Miu, Prada to Chanel everything in one building. Even weekdays many people in and out buying their own dream handbag, shoes or maybe just shades. I quite amazed and makes me thinking. But, If I in their shoes I, myself will support and buying original bag or any collection. It is not we buying the brand. We actually buying the real quality; from material until to workmanship. I did few times watch how a beautiful branded handbag piece been made and I know why the price tag like OMG! Really?!
My alarm normally dang! my ears around 6 A.M, there was me with my eyes wide open. Ohhh..why still dark? Sekarang sudah jam 6 bah. There was me sitting down near to the window watch people off to work and some of them having their breakfast. Interesting. Nothing much different like morning atmosphere in KK City. I guess I starting to love KL City. Time passing by, I'm ready to walk, walk and window shop, shop. Again, all of us continue to explore and shop if get any luck find something nice to wear for the event. The whole Bukit Bintang my friend and I walk and search. Quite interesting to see many type of people passing by; totally international. From Pavillion to Fahrenheit 88 until Sungai Wang. My friend and I, shop and shop 'till dark. "God goshhh! It is 9:15 P.M" said I. "Last stop at Lot 10 to ZARA,okey" replied Nicky to me. Without think deep like helloooo your wallet my dear, control with your spending. I walk fast afraid the outlet will closing soon. There was me and Nicky walk straight to Men's departement. I found my size here deep in my heart. "Ohh uhhh..Fall Collection, I like!" I bought a beautiful cardigan & polo cap. What I can say that ZARA quality standard very good and suitable for modern-trendy fashionista & fashionisto. Okey! Me and Nicky back to our hotel around 9:50 P.M. I think that a break record, shopping the whole day. But I feel really blessed and happy. In one day I found beautiful rings in Pavillion, bought an elegant necklace for my mummy birthday present and something new for my wardrobe. Well, tomorrow is the big day! Everything need to look good and perfecto. Everyone still awake busy preparing what to wear tomorrow including me while waiting Marilyn & her hubby Andy to arrive. I decided to look modern mix classic for the event.

I step into the ballroom because I feel little tight at the ballroom lobby. The crowd too much for me, I decided to follow my friends and take our seats. The moment the door open. WOW! I love the setting. Simply my taste. Yes, although the space too big and little bit empty at the stage. But, that is real women all about. Sweet and simple. Not forget the event is not a fashion show. Well done WW team! Guest one by one walking through the ballroom door look very glamour and hansome. Most of them important people in Malaysia's Fashion Industry. From where I sit, I can see Sabah's Socialite Ms.Rozita, Wanita UMNO Sabah group, Azwan Ali, Natasha Hudson, Kem Salleh, Dynas, Bon Zainal, Faisol, Aishah Sinclair, Yasmin Hani, Datin Sharifah Ervinna, Sasha Bashir, Of course very friendly friends Mansor, Emran and the amazing Supermodel Marini and many more. I feel very happy to see many Datin RahmahJan & Wirda's play-mates come giving their best support to this two beautiful strong women. From what I observed, everyone at the event 100% support WW Magazine. I feel really happy and proud with my darling sisters. That really what inspired to move more forward be great among others. It is not wrong to be a failure in the first round, try again the next one for sure you will be better. I know how it feels and through it. From afar, I smiled and pray for the best to my friend also like a big sister to me : Datin RahmahJan & Wirda Adnan. The ceremony was launched by the graceful Datin Seri Tengku Marsilla. After the launch ceremony on the stage ended, jeng..jeng! the waiter and waiteress bringing out all the 2nd issue of WW Magazine. The moment I saw the magazine cover. Hah! there you go! I love the 2nd issue said it very loud. Straightly, I flip out the pages to see the content and of course I will read Kak Wirda's, Datin RJ's and Abang Mansor's article first. Silly me, even I didn't realized Kak Bey calling my name,photographer taking my picture or the TV3 camera-man around me..worst I didn't realized the cute Afgan singing on stage. Well, that is me if I start reading. Thank God, a beautiful Lawyer next to me asking about something if not I keep continue reading it.
