Me the Writer vs Me the Business Owner


Wooosh... time does fly.
And how destiny dragged me to another path I've never imagined before.

Just last December I dared my sister Dila to set up our own business. That idea just haunt me like crazy until I decided: yep, it's time for action.

We rode the wave of fashion consciousness among hijabers around the worlds. They mixed the latest trend of fashion with hijab. This wave actually started in the 'west' countries when young muslim women need to be covered but don't want to wear their Mom's boring abayas ;) So they're forced to mix and match whatever available in mainstream fashion with hijab.

I'm inspired by these young girls (mostly in their twenties). No, actually I am consciously following the stream. So here you can see me from ignorant-drab-writer into self-proclaim hijabi fashionista (Oh, dear, that label!).

At Malabar beach, last week.

At Circular Quay Station, Nov 2010

Yes, finally the action. I threw my saving for Japan Holiday (okay, holiday can wait. this is gratification at its best) and set up the online business. Why go online? Because this is the start up business we can afford. We would need hundred millions Rupiahs to set up a conventional boutique. Not to mention the long preparation to look for the best location, the dedicated staffs etc. While we're so burning with this ideas to give you this "chic hijab inspiration." We are Dila, my lovely sista, her friend Zata and I.

Yep, going online, all we need is IDEA (the bright one, yes!).
