Wedding Wish Tree: Hanging Hearts

I have done a love wish tree for my brothers' wedding! Yay!. My imagination came true. I love doing this! Would do more if I have the opportunity.Lets start with the wish cards. Since the theme for the wedding card was hanging hearts, so I thought it would be best if the wish cards are heart shaped rather than normal card shape. I worked way before the wedding, prepared the love cards from scratch (I used a picture frame as a shaper and trace it on A1 sized papers - silver, red and cream colour) and attached them with strings. I did it with Amir. He was so excited helping me with them. Wish tree cards: Hanging heartsFor the guest book, I bought 2 black books. It was easier than DIY-ing the books, I was short of time by the way. Initially I wanted to make an accordian book but I did not have time so just dealt with 2 empty black books in which I decorated them with ribbons and chip board letters. Easy peasy.The decoration for table was easy. I didn't want it to look too busy. I…

Wordless Wednesday v.10: Hantaran kahwin Tuwin & Shaza

Tuwin dah kawin (part 2): Reception in Dewan Persada Johor

The reception dinner was held in Dewan Persada Johor (just across our hotel). There were cocktail drinks (of course soft drinks ek, bukanla margarita ke apa) just outside the hall. Lepak sampai ramai orang tetiba there was an announcement just outside the entrance. The announcement was made by a 'hulubalang' (messenger) sort of like in the olden days during Hang Tuah time. So coool!!...Pengumuman dari hulubalangAnd so we went in and after a while, the Bride was carried by a 'tandu' (really don't know what's its called in English)...sampai ke pelamin, followed by the groom joining his bride at the dais. Really awesome!....We were entertained by professional dancers all the way and traditional Malay songs. Penari lelaki heeh..The atmosphere and the feeling was all like in the olden days. The food was great too.A view before the dinnerFinally, when the event was done, there was a joget Melayu session (something like dance - kalu ikut style omputih). Me and Amir jo…

My brother dah selamat bernikah dengan wife dia last week. Our whole family entourage telah turun ke JB for the nikah ceremony at the bride's house. The whole set up and hospitality were beyond words.

Lunch @TGI Friday’s Pavilion

Last week we had TGI. It has been quite sometime. Actually my hubby and I tak berapa minat sangat kat TGI ni sebab mahal pastu steak dia mesti keras (based on past experiences la)....anyway, since we didn't know what to eat, we just went to TGI for lunch.What we ordered:Bacon Cheese Burger RM22.90 New York Strip Steak RM50.90 Kid Banger RM11I think TGI should offer FREE kids meal with every purchase of a main course meal. I mean, isn't it logical to offer that deal? Ntahla, I just think they should, in order to be competitive.Anyway, ada story kat TGI Pavilion ni. Seronok kitorang satu family makan-makan sampai tertinggal set sudu Amar. Sampai dah 2 hari baru ingat bahawasanya I tetinggal sudu tu. I dah sedih-sedih sebab set sudu tu dah tak jual lagi kat sini. Tapi, nak jugak tangan ni gatal pi call TGI and just nak tanya ada ke set sudu baby. Rupa-rupanya diorang simpan sudu tu....yay!!! Yippie!!...punyalah happy...tak sangka pulak diorang simpan..so bersungguh-sungguh I kelu…

Johor Premium Outlet (JPO)

Finally an 'outlet' to release the inner desire of I-want-to-buy-but-its-very-expensive feeling. Malaysia's first outlet, Johor Premium Outlet (JPO) is to me ala-ala Cheshire Oaks in UK. It has just opened to public on 1 December 2011.We came from JB so bukak Googlemap and carik Kulaijaya. Ikut punya ikut rupanya map kasi jalan dalam. Should have just gone and followed my dad coz diorang guna highway and sampai dulu. For further instructions on how to get there, you can see here.When we arrived (at about 11 am), cars were starting to queue at the entrance and people just starting to swarm the shops.People swarming JPOStore guideOk, maybe, maybe the timing we went there was not good; with school holidays and what not in December. There was a sea of people, mostly Singaporeans....most of the time, I 'berlaga bontot' dengan orang bila dalam kedai. The queue to enter Coach and Burberry were jampacked with people, which I wasn't too hyped with (sebab even dah marked…

Site visit

I have worked a job that is so stressful, I didn't see my first son for 1 week, and mind you, it was not an outstation job. I just got to see him whenever he sleeps. Every single day of that week I came back home at 4 or 4.30 am and then to office at 9 the next day. I was so stressed and I thought 'that was it, I have to resign.However, sometimes, there is a bit of 'fun' in this industry of working in client's office. Not so much of fun, but I basically know the 'truth' or have the experience being in client's office so long that it enables me to assess whether I am fit or not in the organisation.When I say fit, I mean whether I like it or love it, whether the environment and people there are nice or I thought 'could this be my next employer?', 'office ni ada bilik menyusu ke tak?', 'surau dia best ke tak?' and a whole load of questions. However, most of the time, memang taklah kan...mesti ada je yang tak kena dengan company tu. …

Delectables Pavilion Kuala Lumpur

If you have been reading my blog, you will know that I don't quite like macarons (the one I had in Harrods, KLCC - you can read about it here). And you will know that I was dying to try the Delectables Treats by Su. Finally the day came, and I bought something from Delectables…yeehaw!Delectable Treats by SuThe stall is situated in level 6, a cute stall with cute deco. Some of the snaps I took:The selection of desserts on saleChristmas 2011 decoBlur sikit gambar ni…excited japI bought a giant macaron, a light pink giant macaron…heheheheh….Delectable Treats packagingGiant macaronThis is sooooooooooo nice if you compare it with the Harrods macarons. So nice. It has got a pinch taste of salt and the sweetness of chocolate and none of strawberry taste (although the colour is pink). Total yummyness of giant macaronI would definitely visit Delectables again. They have so many desserts and I plan to try them one by one.....
