Hantaran Tunang Ciah

Ciah is my sister-in-law. She recently got engaged. The ceremony was simple and traditional. Ciah does not like exaggeration in anything, she’s just a simple minded lady, hence her event and hantaran was so very simple.Her hantaran was done by Kak Nani of De Casa Flora. Khidmat Kak Nani ni memang digunakan sejak abang yang pertama lagi, and never change sampaila ke Ciah ni (the only girl and the last one to get married). Lets look at her hantaran. Gubahan was done by Kak Nani, while the bekas par anak par was my mom’s (pinjam), simply because Ciah wants it raw like that, no kain-kain, no lapik no nothing, which I find very authentic.  Every week she would shine the anak par herself (excited nak kasi kilat). She wanted peonies for her hantaran and succulent-like-leaves to go with it. Bunga Melur was to create some scent to the hantaran.The hantaranSome grapesPatchi chocolatesThe cake. The cake was S-E-D-A-P!… it was baked by my biras’s brother (Chef Faris – used to be the dessert chef …

Wall’s Scoops of Happiness – Stories you can taste

Towards the end of my pregnancy, I received an invitation from Wall’s to attend a bloggers’ event in Publika. I thought “ memang tak dapek la den nak pegi”….agak sedih sikit di situ sebab jarang dapat invitation (but lately asyik dapat invitation yang ice cream aje)…anyway, memang pikir tak pegi lah sebab takut terberanak la pulak kang…A day before the event, I was restless coz I thought I need to walk to exercise, plus, suddenly terpikir menarik jugak kalau pegi event ni, kira last before beranak kan.. ..hubby turutkan saja….hantar pegi Publika about 12 noon….(dahla jalan jam, so he was annoyed on whyyyyy I must go to the event)….I said I will come back with my sister in law..(nasib baik my SIL keje kat Sapura tu so memang boleh sangat la tumpang dia)..And so I arrived early, jalan-jalan kat Publika dulu (risau jugak kalau2 sakit ke…)…air ketuban ke apa, dah keluar tapi I rilek je sebab sikit sangat untuk dirisaukan….so, I sampai cafe Mad About Coco about 2:45 pm, took a file, snappe…

Lunch and Dinner at Jibby & Co

A new hangout and makan place situated in Empire Subang, this place is what I call the new age dining place. The foods are all tasty, desserts are to die for and the environment is cosy, the service is not bad too…We had a birthday dinner here for my brother, paid by my youngest brother, but I went there first with my friend (after looking at Fiena’s instagram about Jibby & Co’s soft shell crab burger)…Unfortunately the day I went with my friend, Jibby was experiencing shortage of water so no food and drinks can be prepared for patrons. I had a chit chat with the owner and ate a delicious piece of Beyonce!…and drank cola lime frost.Beyonce and cola lime frostLets look at the deco and the interior. Memang cun!

New Magnolia Gotcha Safari

Ice cream, ice cream we scream for ice cream!!!…wah beriya-iyanya nyanyi…My kids memang crazy about ice cream…it’s the first thing that they would want be it in any circumstances. But, who doesn’t kan? Ibunya pun sama. So, when F&N contacted me to give free ice cream, I wouldn’t miss it….straight away e-mailed back to try the new Magnolia Gotcha Safari ice creams.This was the pack that we received. A box with 6 lollies (2 Zebras, 2 Tigers and 2 Leopards). You must be wondering why they are named with animals names?….well, it’s because Magnolia Gotcha Safari wants to make learning fun with facts on each ice cream stick. How?  By reading reading the facts about the animal on the wrapper and then savouring the unique taste of the ice cream.The zebra variant comes with a blend of cola and lemon lime, the tiger has an interesting blend of chocolate and vanilla while the leopard has a blend of orange and grape flavours.Amir loves the chocolate vanilla flavour while I love the cola and l…

Birthday party Amir ni dah lama dah…baru ada masa nak update. At first, we didn’t plan pun nak buat birthday party, but the thought of having a pool party kat my brother’s apartment tu menarik sangat…so we just did a mini party for family members and the main agenda was swimming!!…sambil ibunya syok nak buat dessert buffet (saja-saja- untuk sweetalmiraz).First, we had the poster up and set the table with a black cloth.Plant vs Zombie posterThen, we just had small quantities of desserts.Salted caramel chocolate tarts from LavenderndcreamCupcakes from awinzidan, toppers from sweetalmiraz of course!Air hijau- kekonon brain juiceFancy cookies – tu ada terselit Hello Kitty tu sebab I yang nak…hahahahPremier Brain Juice – muahahahahNobody could make cake pops so I decided to use Ferrero Rocher instead – was quite disappointed with the outcomeInside a kid’s goodie bagPlant vs Zombie dessert table set up for Amir’s 7th birthday – simple jerThe VIP guests for Amir’s birthday were:Birthday boy …
