Look What I Found : Leather, Stitches and TRON.

I'm starting this new section in my blog to share things that I found (in this case, bought, heh.)

1. Meidina purse \ RM 70 ~ Amcorp
My husband bought this for me at a shop in Amcorp which sells handbags from Korea, forgot the shop name. I thought it looked cool, kinda like Tron because of the lining and the material which I don't know what.

2. "Hermes-leather wallet" \ RM60 ~ Plaza Shah Alam
 My husband bought this for me too, haha, I was looking for a new wallet to replace the one I've been using since 2005, a Samuel & Kevin denim wallet my Art Director from CTG gave me as a gift from Hong Kong. My husband says the wallet is in such a bad state that if I threw it in the lake I would definitely pollute it. Anyway, I have never been a sucker for brand names, I liked the design of this wallet because of the styling, and the clasp has a 'H' which when can be viewed as an 'I' from the side. Either way, it is my initial Irina Hariati, heh, yeah, I have the weirdest reason for buying things. Oh, its a fake, but it looks good.

3. Brandless lace up ankle boot \ RM80 ~ Amcorp Flea Market
I've been looking for a brown lace up boot for a while, the ones I found are either too expensive or too 'embellished'. This one was just perfect and it was lined with purple velvet on the inside. It didn't have any brand which is one of the best reasons why I like it.

4. "Gucci Handbag" \ RM40 ~ Amcorp Flea Market
Yes it is a fake. The guy who sold it held a ignited lighter to it, speaking in some foreign language pretending to be Malay, but I think he was trying to say that the material doesn't burn or something like that. I liked the simple shape, its cute size and the 'neatness' of the structure. Luckily the "Gucci" brand was slightly debossed on the 'leather' and so small so you could hardly see it.

So yeah, I've got more items that I want to share. I have always had a thing for leather and stitches but I can't afford real leather so yeah, fakes rule!!

Day of questions

Hot oil on the face
I'm all over the place

I put on 'bedak sejuk'
Do you think it'll work on my heart?

I left my duties
it has been a while
It's so hard to get back in rhythm
when you have strayed so far

Days go by
as does time
I am making a lot of waste

Lazyness is my desease
couple it with ignorance
or is it denial?
and this is what you get

Sometimes I do
Sometimes I don't
It is my Grid, yet I can't stick to it
so what is left is chaos
what is left is a lingering sadness of no source

I miss God
it seems I have deviated so far
I try to grasp
Inconsistencies are a bane
my efforts are menial

and it rushes over
dominoes through everything else

I need to pray
it is the only cure I know
my heart is dying

5 out of 5
it shouldn't be so hard
yet I hardly manage 2 per day

I need to find my way
I need to get there
To be among the 2 groups
The first group I think I have no chance
The 2nd group, it has less of people today
that means only a few of us can make it

But I really do not want to be from the third group
The ones the get the book from the left hand

Funny, it seems I'm doing everything to not get where I want to go

It will be any day now

That day of questions

I just want to go
underneath where rivers flow
and hear that Salam

am I worthy?
I know not
