Alhamdulillah, with God's mercy and blessing we got to celebrate 1st Syawal after a month fasting on Ramadhan. Like the previous years after I got married, 1st Eid was celebrated with my in-laws, in Subang Jaya.
My husband is not the type of man who would make a new baju melayu on each Syawal. According to him, it will be a waste since he did not wear baju melayu for any other occasion, except on 1st Eid or during funerals. Itupun few hours je...usually by the noon of 1st Eid, he had already changed to jeans and shirt :P So far, he has a few baju melayu in the closet (4 to be exact) so on each Eid I will rotate between the 4 colors, with of course, the consent from him :P
We finally decided the royal blue again this year and since then I started to search the Eid outfit for the twins first. I had a tough time buying the twins kurung last year, as I only begun my shopping at the 3rd week of Ramadhan and most of the kurungs that I like left with only 1 final piece for each size. Finally I stumbled into a seller in FB that sell cute peplum kurung for kids, and co-incidentally one of the color available was a combination of royal blue & yellow mustard. Since the last time it was royal blue + purple, I thought why not choosing something cheerful this time...so color blocking it was! hihi :)
Royal blue + Purple in 2011
It was a week after my 44 days of confinement.
Berisi. Hihi :P

All looking and smiling at the camera.
Falisya & Faiqa with their ready made peplum kurung.
I just love the simple design. Cute!
To match with my girls, I opt for this blue Laluna Fishtail Peplum from BMyB and highlighted the yellow mustard trough my old Radiusite scarf.
Love the peplum so much!
Walau gamble beli online, bila pakai cantik terletak :)
Since obviously my husband will wear his royal blue baju melayu, I decided yellow mustard baju melayu instead for Faaz to coordinate our outfit.
Faaz's baju melayu was the only one I bought at a shop in Plaza Alam Sentral, Shah Alam and not via online. hihihi. :)
Hubby didn't commented much when all of us has dressed-up (he didn't know I added the yellow mustard as well, he thought it will be a plain royal blue theme). He only questioned me why Faaz's baju melayu is in yellow color, not royal blue when I was ironing our raya outfit. Hihi..
But I overheard his conversation with mama later on that day,
Mama: "Nicelah Jil your family theme this year"
Him: "Ha tulah, very nice. I didn't know it's gonna be blue and yellow. It's all Nadia's idea. Now even my baju melayu looks new, it compliment well with the rest."
and it made me smile with "hati yang berbunga-bunga"
Good to know, hubs, although from far...
