Crazy About Colors

here's my most recent posting on mombloggersplanet - my first for 2010! it's all about colors and what color you are as bloggers! click on the picture below to read the whole entry!

why colors?

i LOVE to color co-ordinate.

i'm really OCD when it comes to colors. obsessive-compulsive. i color co-ordinate my wardrobe. i color co-ordinate mr. khairul's shirts and t's when i hang them in his wardrobe. on the book case, i arrange my books according to colors - well, according to authors first, but color is definitely next. creams, blacks, blues, and greens - it soothes the eye!

heck, i even color co-ordinate when i hang the laundry to dry.

i mean, you're doing a reasonably boring perfunctory task anywayyyy - amik dari bakul, libas-libas, sidai. amik dari bakul, libas-libas, sidai. so might as well make it more interesting by making sure the reds are with the reds and pinks and oranges, while the blacks and blues go together.

it's NOT weird when you think about it - you're still getting the damp clothes hang, right? what's wrong with putting a little 'fun' to it? make it a little game you're playing while you're hanging up clothes - making sure everyone is in their right color group!

ok, why are you looking at me all funny?

azi pointed out to me the level of quirkiness one day - we're all ready to go out, and khaleef was already in his socks and shoes and out waiting at the elevator.

i then discovered something, and strongly insisted that khaleef comes back in, takes his shoes off, changes his socks - just because he was wearing a pair of green socks with red top, when he's supposed to wear the red socks with red top.

i just want things nicely matched, thanks very much!

shades of red!

and some people might like this, some may give lawak bodo basi like 'eii boria' - but i LOVE color co-ordinating my family's attire when we go out. i mean, gi kenduri or hari raya tu biase la. but even to the hypermart, the mall or just a weekend lunch at al-tawasol for our fav mandi rice, i'll definitely make sure everyone is wearing pretty much the same shade.

shades of black - brown - green - cream - white

bukan baju sebijik-bijik serupa - but colors of the same shade, or near each other in the color spectrum. yellow-orange-brown. or blue-purple-black. or black and white. or green-yellow-cream.

i even prefer the colors not to be too similar, and the clothes too - a variety of plaids, stripes or corak-corak - but still falls under the same color shade!

what can i say - i'm crazy about colors!

tak pernah terfikir pun sidai/sangkut baju ikut warna. no wonder la syigim ni kreatif ;). kalau sama warna (tema), is ok la syigim tp kalau smpai corak baju & kainnya sama sebijik2 (betul2 boria!) kite tak berkenan..ehe.

kite nk jgk pakai baju sama warna dgn hsbnd & anak tp takleh la sbb hsbnd tak nk. actually, bkn la tak nk tp sbb hsbnd suka warna biru je, most of his t's mmg biru, ajak beli warna lain dia takmo..pastu cmne la nk sama2 warna? :p

Syigim said...

yup nadiah, mmg kalo kain pun sebijik2 tu mmg over la tu! hihi..kaler pun xyah exactly the same.. cuma shades lebih kurang :)

ooo biruuuuu je. suma kena pakai biru la tu hihi. luckily my husband relakan je i jadik his fashion advisor haha :P

I like colour coordinate, sebab tu part of the grooming subject masa kat Poly. Memang make sure everything goes perfectly bile dressed up.
