It was definitely an awesome experience.. Think about the recent flick a month back, Confessions of a Shopaholic, where the scene where all the women went berserk and crazy at a sale? It was exactly as crazy!

My self and 2 fellow Fashionistas were there at approximately 10:15 a.m 45 mins before the doors open! Yes… we are crazy and its a sale.. and we were not the only ones!

There was already 2 queues!

The queue 45 mins before Opening at 11 a.m

It started to get crowded and crowded until there was really no point in having a queue in the first place! People started to cut in is now like a stampede! Everyone was packed like a can of tuna, people pushing and shoving to try to get it first and basically… Grab the best first!!!!

Growing queue as Opening draws near!

People were so desperate to come in that they were getting more violent where while we were enjoying ourselves in the vacinity, people were screaming and shouting and trying to force themselves in until the sliding wall doors were vibrating and moving and one or two of the sliding doors came off! They even had to stick tape on to the glass so that it won’t shatter!

Crazy people! Gosh BE CIVILIZED! The bouncers outside had to scream at the screaming people outside and prevent a havoc accoring! Good job security! It’s only la people! … SALE… HAHAHAH!!! Too bad! you guys came later so too bad! All the nice clothes are mine! Muahahha!! …

When I got in… it felt weird and treasure hunt like… and my single and main mission was to find all the things that I want fast and quick before someone lays hands and eyes on my ‘precious’!

There was so much on dirt cheap and rediculous prices! Almost a give away!

Rm9.90 , Rm 29.90, Rm 39.90, RM 49.90, Rm 59.90… I was in awe! I mean.. ZARA! Pull & Bear! & Massimo!!!

Ok.. normally warehouse sale means really crappy dented and not 100% quality products or has faults in it! But no… it was freaking the really thing! I asked the saleswomen nearby and she said that the new season is arriving soon and strictly all of this season has to go before the season ends!

I was shocked i managed to capture pictures …. normally there would be like.. no cameras, no food and no bags signs… but there wasn’t any so i just clicked away! But they did tie up hand bags and totes to prevent theft obviously.

My fellow fashionistas got a pair of gorgeous suade Massimo Dutti heels for only Rm169.90 when the normal price is Rm500.oo! She got a few other tops as well. but all were in the range of Rm 19.90 to 39.90!

Myself? Hehe…

And you may ask.. only?? Well.. thing is the stuff there for guys (am not sure on the girls) there are more XXL than the regulars.. I heard one dude cursing that there were only sizes for big people and there was no S or M.. In my mind I was like… hehe … that’s why I am here.. HAHAHA!!!

On a normal day, I would be buying loads of stuff and don’t care how much as long as the quality was good and it was worth it and cheap! But.. I put a cap on myself today. I only brought RM 210 with me and no ATM cards! Had to limit and not be a shopaholic!

“I am Danny, I went to the Zara,  Pull & Bear, Massimo Dutti Warehouse Sale and I only spent Rm 119.70! And I am NOT a Shopaholic!”

Scarf ! the Fashion Veil of Today

The significance of how the scarf emerged as a fashion accessory as well as its religious significance in the cultures of the world, is little known. The scarf, adorned by a woman from different parts of the world in religion as well as a fashion garment is highlighted. A scarf is a delicate piece of cloth used for protection or as a religious veil or purely as fashion. The oldest evidence of the scarf dates as far back as 1000 B.C., where women in the Chinese sculptures are seen wearing scarves. Scarves known as ‘sudarium’ in ancient Rome, was a handkerchief used to wipe sweat off the face and neck. ater, the Romans modified the sudarium into a scarf. From then on, the scarf was knotted to the belt or worn around the neck by men. When women adopted the scarf, it became a fashion accessory.


Another myth of the scarf centers around the Duke of Krakow, a celebrated explorer. In 1783, the Duke wrapped a self knit woolen material around his neck to keep himself warm. However, he got strangled with his own scarf when it got entangled in his husky pulled sledge. Ironically, the cause of his death was the invention of a woolen scarf. Croation mercenaries have worn scarves since the 17th century. The French were attracted by this piece of clothing and adopted the scarf calling them cravats, from the Croatian word – kravata. By the 19th century the scarf, was a fashion accessory in every man and woman’s wardrobe.

In every religion the name or form of the scarf may be different but universally it symbolizes modesty, sanctity and character. Men and women wear scarves either as veils or turbans as part of their religious attire. Amongst the Muslims, the head scarf worn by women is known as the hijab. The Quran describes the hijab as a curtain that gives muslim women their privacy. The hijab in Quranic Arabic is known as the khimar. Jewish women wear a tichel – a head scarf worn to the Jewish synagogues. Amongst the Hindus, the dupatta is the Indian version of the scarf used to cover the forehead and head. Catholics wear veils to cover their heads, where scarves symbolize holiness.

In Tibet, katas are white scarves that are symbols of hope, prosperity and happiness. As a protective garment, scarves were used by aircraft pilots to avoid breathing in exhaust fumes. Tuareg tribes use a ‘cheche’ to protect themselves from the desert wind and sand. A cheche also known as a tagelmust is many layered covering the head and drapes down loosely to cover the neck.

In regions of Africa and West Indies, women wear scarves as turbans or head wraps to protect the head. Scarves soon entered the world of academic uniforms signifying merit, academic affiliation and distinction. Scouts wear scarves to indicate seniority and units to which they belong. In different parts of the world scarves are known by a variety of names- an ‘ascot’ in England, a ‘babushka’ in Russia, a ‘mantilla’ in Spain or the ‘bandana’ in Italy. Depending on their lengths and use, scarves are also known by names like jabot, ruana, hacking, muffler, do-rags or fichus.

Scarves were glamourized when actors like Grace Kelley and Greta Garbo, stylishly wore them on the silver screen. Made from different fabrics like wool, silk, cotton, rayons and synthetic nylons scarves must be light weight as they are draped around the head and neck. They are given a smooth textured finish so that they flow without sticking.

Scarves come in different shapes and dimensions – rectangular, squares or triangles as also in exotic colors and prints adorned with sequins or tassels. Tied around the neck in different knots or secured with a piece of jewellery, a scarf adds sudden color to a dull outfit. Covering the head with a scarf is traditional, but used as a belt, tied around the forehead or wrist is today’s scarf in fashion.
