Not Frumpy @ Bijou Bazaar

Meet Faridah Zulkiflie or better known as Baby, her trademark giggle is bound to put a smile on anyone's face. She owns an online boutique @

Baby was one of the willing models at Emi's pop up strobe class in Bijou Bazaar @ Jeumpa D'ramo last Sunday. Our official paparazzi, Enche Asman, produced this picture at the pop up workshop.

More sexy, show closeness!!!!! ... et voila!

We had her answer a few questions last weekend ...

Tell us a bit about yourself (name, location, affiliations, personal stuff).
My birth-name is Noor Faridah Zulkiflie but that is quite a mouthful a name to call every time you wanna talk to me, so just call me Baby. I live in the rustic Kg. Subang for 24 years now. I love shopping, sewing, reading, writing, dancing and I have this ridiculous obsession towards shoes.

Apart from, what do you do?
Apart from Not Frumpy, I am an event coordinator.

What first made you want to have an e-boutique?
Well, I love fashion. I love styling-up. I love clothes. And the fact that my friends love my clothes and style as well, it dawned on me, I could help girls by supplying affordable, stylish and trendy clothes.

Describe your style.
It depends on my mood actually. At times, I like it simple; jeans and simple top. Other times, I like it a little elaborated but still maintains the simpleness of the outfit; big-ass belts, high waisted-pants, crazy coloured shoes, crazy coloured opaques tights with sky-high heels.

How do you promote your work?
Online, words-of-mouth, bazaars.

In ten years I'd like to be...
A wife, a mother, a writer, a political analyst and a boutique owner.

Name your top five books, movies, songs/musical groups, and web sites.
1) Sputnik Sweetheart by Haruki Murakami
2) Snakes and Earrings by Kanehara Hitomi
3) Love Story by Erich Segal
4) Tuesdays With Morrie by Mitch Albom
5) Summer Sisters by Judy Blume

1) Pretty Woman
2) Blood Diamond
3) Across The Universe
4) Pulp Fiction
5) Billy Madison

Songs/Musical Groups:
1) Make This Go On Forever by Snow Patrol
2) Sigur Ros
3) Mogwai
4) Amiina
5) and so many more...

1) Oh, Joy! (
2) Last Night's Party (
3) Malaysia Today (
4) The Cool Hunter (
5) Paraphernalia Loves You! (

Thanks very much, Baby for your time. :o)

It's true!

Someone You Used to Know (Original Song) - Koko Kaina

Jeumpa D'ramo

Jeumpa D'ramo means 'berkumpul di serambi' in Acehnese. It is a boutique hotel, which is not yet commercialised situated on Jalan Maarof.

Jeumpa D'ramo is the white bungalow situated at the traffic light junction of Jalan Bangkung (leading to Sek Keb Bukit Bandaraya and The Attic). If you are from Mid Valley or Jalan Bangsar, Jeumpa D'ramo would be on your left and if you are from BSC, it is the bungalow on your right.

We will be decorating the fences with BIG rainbow wind wheels. Do look out for them. :o)

A peek at the venue ...

It would be advisable for all to park your cars along Jalan Bangkung.

Jeumpa D'ramo
102 - 104 Jalan Maarof

KL Freeze in Unison. 2.30pm. Sunday 13th April.

The Bijou Bazaar team is part of a movement called Improv Malaysia.

Improv Malaysia is collaborating with United Colours of Malaysia to pull of a big KL Freeze in Unison, this Sunday, 13th April at 2:30 pm.

Improv Everywhere agents did it in London

Also in New York City

And we’re doing it in the heart of Kuala Lumpur, in support of United Colours of Malaysia's fight!
2.30pm Sunday 13th April. (Freeze at 3pm)

Those participating will go to a certain location (Freeze Point) and 'freeze' for 5 minutes. Just like in the youtube videos. That is all you do.

If you don't understand that, then I hope you are not a registered voter.

We will meet at Gathering Point 2.30pm (a location near our Freeze Point) for time syncronization and a quick briefing. Because this rooted from an international movement, you have to be punctual. Seriously.

Location for Gathering Point will be revealed at 11pm on 11th April. It will be revealed on this event page, and private message only to those Attending and Maybe Attending on the Facebook group.

It HAS to remain a secret till then. HAS to. Or all will fail and the Ring won't make it to Mordor.

Don't worry. It will be a place conveniently accessible by public transport. Bus, train, taxi and penyapu terbang.
