I know I have more than a million things to blog about, believe me, the guilt is eating me up inside. But oh wells.
As we all know and are excited about, the Malaysia’s First Charity Online Fashion Entrepreneurs’ Weekend is happening now! Like, over this weekend, now.
A couple of my friends, Soon Seng and Jan, told me about this months ago and invited me to join their initial meetings to see if I could help out in anyway but unfortunately I was up to my neck with final exams and patients and clinics so I had to sit this one out. But I am so very glad to see that they have created this monster of a blog shop bazaar!! Good job you guys! And your whole team as well!
With a few clever social media marketing strategies (mainly facebook), the MOFEW facebook page has managed to garner like 10,000 fans!! Very very clever. I am very impressed. 🙂
Months ago I thought I would not have time to set up a booth but when I knew I could, it was already too late. Spots were snapped up like hot cakes!
So I went there as a shopaholic. Mojo not there though, but I trudged on.
Having a little fun with the camera while waiting for our sushi. Some noms before blowing our wallets. If any of you are wondering, yes, there are real lens on these glasses. These are my casual glasses.
My little Shevie looking so sexy.. sigh. Can still remember the time when she was 2 years old and throwing her ball which was made of cloth at me and me throwing it back to her. 😐 They grow up so fast these days. I bet she’s hating me for cooing like that.
Soon Seng grew up so fast too wtf. Can remember him as the Interact president who politely shook my hand and engaged me in a very interactive and friendly conversation, surpassing his 16 years of age. Soon Seng took the day off to tend to his pet project and he was running around all business like with the suit on and all! Good job Soon Seng!
MOFEW! 😀 So there were about 100 booths there, apparently lah. But if didn’t feel like it. Maybe because it was well spaced out but who was counting anyway, I was shopping! More like..er.. booth shopping. Can you believe I only came out of it with like a passport holder (nice passport holder okay! Snakeskin!), a bag organizer and a looong bag hanger! So not me. 🙁 But my bank account is also not in its usual state now that my mother says I don’t need money to pay rent, electricity, my own meals and even petrol. Sigh. Han han yong. Oh yeah, I’m back in Subang now for those of you who don’t know me/have me on Facebook. I’m done with AIMST. I have graduated..yup… there should be a post about it……………there must be a post about it. *stands firm!*
Ahhh okay now we start looking at THINGS. Don’t you love the bags? I love Lush Serendipity’s newest collection of bags. All in patent candy! Yarghh!! She gave me a nice discount…(very nice of you, Grace!!) but as I just survived a big shopping trip recently, I had to decline. Her bags are just as beautiful as the new stocks I have seen around Sg. Wang, maybe nicer even! And cheaper than Sg. Wang too! Go go go!
I won’t be linking blogshops now, because it’s like..4am? So just head on over to the MOFEW website to look at the list of exhibitors!
Some gorgeous red shoes that Mun Teng was lusting after.
How can you get enough of the pretty bags?!?!
I can just look at these pictures all day and be happy and satisfied for the rest of..the.. er.. week. 😀 Till the next shopping trip!
Grace and her mum who always helps her whenever she has a stall at any bazaar!
So cute right the umbrella! Brenda, they remind me of you!
More deco the blogshops did for their booths. I think a good business plan would be to set up a service that conceptualizes a blogshop’s layout at a bazaar and then implement it for them. NAIS. I patent this idea first.
Can hang your bags high high also..
More candy coloured bags!!! It’s seriously the trend now lah I think. See it around a lot. I first saw it in Singapore and almost bought one. Luckily I managed to control myself!
Zoomed in! Sorry, couldn’t resist. 🙂
I like the tree concept! I noticed a lot of blog shops brought their own little lamps.
Eyelashes and clothes..
Big, chunky accessories! Not my type though.
So sweet!! I like the idea of hanging it like that and with a chalkboard as the backdrop!
If you like the designs, remember to check out Rose Handmade.
Yunique Paradise is synonymous with gorgeous, gorgeous, shoes. The only thing that has ever held me back from purchasing a pair is 1) the killer 4-5 inches heels 2) the price is out of my budget.. but if the lot of you can justify spending more than normal on a pair of gorgeous gorgeous shoes..then Yunique Paradise, you must must pay her site a visit. The designs are just like the name of the shop, unique. 🙂 Very very unique. Oh yeah and Yuni, the owner, is all the way from Penang. I have bought leggings from the blogshop before as well!
Love how the spotlight shines. Makes everything look so professional. I don’t think any bazaar has ever had booths like that! In a way I still prefer the old layout of bazaars where everything is at hips level or shoulders level at most. But if you are talking about spacing, MOFEW did a pretty good job with that. And don’t worry, you can’t sweat there at all. No one is pushing elbows to elbows. You can stop anywhere you want to try on shoes, browse items without worrying if you’re blocking traffic.
Almost all the blogshops have mannequins these days.
Ahhh so cute!!! I like!~ Shevie and I were browsing blogshops yesterday afternoon (in preparation for MOFEW wtf) and she was telling me that this Quirky Brown Cow is one of her favourite blogshops!
I bought my gorgeous snake skin passport holder from this girl. She’s really sweet and friendly! And sweetly shy too hahaha..:) But with gorgeous things! I wish she had more designs though. I think she has some laptop bags too!
At least I am pretty sure there were no one else at the bazaar who were selling passport holders or laptop bags even! I got my passport holder at RM24. Okay lah, can lah.
No, they are not Jibbitz but they are made of the same material as the Jibbitz! Hair clips in the cutest colours! Would get some if I wore them.
Enamel earrings which I have seen in Bangkok. 🙂 Loveee it still!
Don’t mess with this mannequin! Soak Republic always puts so much effort into their booth layout!
Here’s Mei who has her own blogshop yet helped out with Soak Republic’s booth as well. That’s Jeremy from myfavouritees!
Soak Republic is very very popular. I hear that the owners Tiffany and Pei Shan are even doing it full time now! Congratulations to the both of them! Nice name you got there, Pei Shan. I think I’ve told you that before. 😀
Quirky rings is love!
There’s a shop which had like dinner dresses. Was about RM80-RM100++ per piece.
If there was a competition for prettiest booth layout, I think Rara Black probably stand a chance at bagging the grand prize.
Bird cages are a very popular decoration for booths at bazaars.
Ahhhh hairband. I wanted to get some but forgot. Damn damn damn!
You can never have too many accessories.
Look at those lovely numbers.
Even lovelier numbers!!<3
Didn’t really stay long to understand the concept of the necklace…which is apparently convertible. Oh well, if you do drop by, check it out. 🙂
AHHh!! Been so long since I saw these at bazaars. 🙂 They brighten up any bazaar! Or maybe there’s a slight nostalgia to these pixels as they were quite a hit at the very first bazaar I attended.
Ahhhh more enamel earrings.
Gorgeous bib necklaces!
This girl was selling Bumpits! Been meaning to try some but I ended up with this contraption that can help keep my hair in a tight bun! Which is something I needed as well, so got that instead.
This guy was really really good at selling the bag organizers. I was just walking along and suddenly he comes up to me and says, “You look like a girl who would use a bag organizer!” LOL I couldn’t stop laughing because it was quite cheesy, like those 50s cars salesman kinda thing, but at the same time it was hard to say no. So that’s the story of how I ended up with a bag organizer.
And his bevy of female friends at the booth also convinced me to get a bags hanger. So I now have a bags hanger that can hold about 8 bags? I’d take a photo of it but I am too lazy now. It’s like a long belt with buttons and stuff to hold all your bags in a vertical fashion. The girls there told me that the bag hanger should be able to last five years! Promise ah!!
They were like choosing the colours for me based on my spectacles. “You sure like pink one!”
They weren’t the only ones. Every shop I went, girls were like, “How about this pink one?” Ahhh..the glasses are saying too much!
Dropping by Jeremy’s store! My Favourite Tees is doing quite well as Jeremy is really popular!
More of his shirts!
Some heels caught my eyes. Love the way they make the shoe hangers.
More bags, but these were slightly more normal than the amazing patent candy bags!
I like the embellishments on this one though!
Here is Sze May, who was from my school, who was taking care of her friend’s stall while her friend was at work! Shevie bought a skirt from her so while waiting for her to get back from the toilet, Sze May and I caught up! 🙂
Managed to grab Jeremy for a picture.
Mun Teng trying on cuteee clothes at Ugly Ducking Closet. If you like ribbons, pastels and the sweetest things, this shop has it!
Some very unique looking stuff!
Ahh so sweet!
I like the mannequin more than the dress. Eh wait, it’s a playsuit! Nicer!
Mun Teng actually found a shop selling black bling glasses. You can’t see it here, but it catches the light at certain angles, like any other self respecting blinged up glasses. Sisterhood of the bling bling glasses! <3
Made the both of them take this lovely photo together!
A nicer photo of myself and Soon Seng.
Mun Teng in the midst of shopping.
Shevie’s favourite shop – some charms bracelet shop.
More bird cage decoration!
Soon Seng took to the microphone to garner some attention from the oblivious shoppers, announcing Digi’s talk which was happening outside.
Bumped into Kimra!! My junior from uni!!
A blurry photo with Jan, who is the main organizer. The bazaar was his brainchild.
Mun Teng sayangs her new bag until very geram.
She loves her new bling bling glasses too.
I test drive and see. Okay, pass.
Mun Teng’s beard of whimsical painted top.
Polka dots apparently make her happy.
Some black shirt.
A Michael Jackson inspired jacket (you should have seen the buttons).
Something we found in the goodie bag.
Would make for good props for those auction days that colleges have.
With my dear Shevie, after she was done making her bracelet. I didn’t know my little cousin sister loved charm bracelets so much!
Another interesting layout.
Bowing to Shevie’s every whim and fancy.
What a huge selection to choose from!
I like the rose themed things!
My snakeskin passport holder.
Shev’s bracelet. Nice right!
She bought two. 😛 Head on over to her blog. She’ll probably blog about her spoils sooner or later.
So glad that my cousin is bonding with one of my besties. 🙂
Overall, I had a wonderful time browsing through the booths, enjoying the ample space and meeting familiar faces. 🙂 MOFEW Â opens at 11am to 9pm on Saturday but closes at 7pm on Sunday! So hurry up before the goodies sell out! 🙂 Â I had fun sharing the love!
