MISS X NIKAH: NIKAH FAVORS


Favors concept: Old English-Traditional Malay


Theme color: Yellow


For the guests: Mangkuk Tingkat with custom choc in organza pouch & homemade wajik :)


Mangkuk Tingkat by: The Wedding Heaven


Organza pouch by: The Wedding Heaven


Custom wrapper choc chunk by: Oh Mai Wedding


Homemade wajik: All the way from Perak






Walaupun pada mulanya i get the tak-pernah-dibuat-dek-orang from my mum, i still proceed after they both gave me greenlight to do as i wish. I want something unique, memorable and exclusive for my guests. Something different!



Alhamdulillah, everyone who attended my small nikah ceremony love the favors so much.


Mangkuk Tingkat simbolizes our orang dolu-dolu yang jadikannya sebagai bekal. juga dikenali sebagai Tiffin or Sia... :) And so does wajik... i added a pinch of English touch by putting in custom choc chunk in organza pouch. So tingkat atas letak choc in organza pouch, tingkat bawah letak wajik :))


Since i had a small nikah of 70pax, i don't mind spending a little more for the guests, as long as they're happy of what they'll bring home with them. :) As for nikah favors the whole combination costs me RM17 for each guests (Mangkuk Tingkat + Wajik + Choc Chunk + Organza Pouch + Ribbons & Tags) and Alhamdulillah everyone love it.




Even Sue Cantik told me, she likes the mangkuk tingkat idea so much, she washed it and keep it well....weeeeeeeeee :)


...Not to mention, the favors jadi bualan rombongan lelaki ye coz they love itas much as we do :)



suka! xx

Homemade wajik nun jauh from perak, mail me kalau ada b2b perak berminat. Or b2b KL yang sanggup pi amik kat Perak, mail me personally jugak. i bagi contact makcik tu :)


i swear sedap gila. lembut sangat sangat.... the best wajik ever!


Parents my hubby makan sampai licin!


erk.... My parents pun apa kurangnya, lama tak kena wajik. haha licin!!!






Till then!

OUR HOME :)

our little place we call home... :)

i always know what i want.
since back then, i am always The Planner.
from now on, 'I' work as 'We'.. so 'I' cannot be 'I' anymore...
hahaha

We went scouting for furniture since Spetember (2months before our wedding).
Listed down what we need and want for our mini home.

There are series of various aspects to contemplate when choosing our home furniture:

1) how comfy they are
- huggable cushions on a 3 seater couch.. :)
- two chairs with back and arm rests...
- couch is sooo important for us two so we can spend our weekends watching tv togetha comfortably (ada weekend ke aku ni? he-he)... so ya, we invested a little more on the couch.
(i pilih, he bayar haha)


2) the color
- white or grey
- we want our home to be clean,... or at least appear clean :)
so if u bring ur kids, pls make sure they don't doodle on our white furniture or wall ya? ;p

3) the size
- no bulky furniture
- our home is small, 1100sqft, i cannot buy furniture like mum. well, i cannot spend like mum.
we cannot stay in a home like mum's bcoz there's just us two
(hakikatnya belum mampu lagi uols! not there yet....)
Mula hidup as husband and wife, so we can't be lavish... no more biggie homie for me nymore.
i am miss independent! an small apartment for us two is more than enough.. alhamdulillah :)

++++++++++

the only problem i have now is choosing curtains. curtains give me headache!
we want diff types of curtains for every space.
not so dark at the hall -- sheer curtains probably.
sunshine can't go through at our personal space ;p haha

next, to choose a filler color, bagi naik seri hall ;p --- we have white and grey furniture.
so we're still disccussing whether to add purple or yellow .. what say u? :)

then, to buy home deco -- vases, flowers, paintings.

Alhamdulillah...

can't wait to officially move in! :))

TIPS:
1) Jangan rambang mata. Beli apa yang ada dalam list asal sahaja.
2) Furniture are not curtains, u don't change annually (unless banyak duit)... so since furniture are not curtains or bed sheets, we promised to ourselves furniture 5 tahun baru tukar :) so, why not invest a little more on the quality.
3) back to point one, stick to ur / our budget. ours-- mmg we both tetapkan no more than RM15k... strictly. no more than that. sentiasa ingatkan each other jangan rambang mata.... ini pecahan yang both of us buat:
- hall RM4k
- dining / kitchen RM2k
- room RM2k
- deco (curtains / carpets / vases/ flowers / rack/ etc... ) RM3k
- electrical goods ( TV/ Fridge/ Washer ) RM4k
== alhamdulillah byk electrical goods and barang dapur dapat hadiah dr families n friends. tq~==


Happy planning newly weds!!!

xx

MISS X NIKAH : HENNA REVIEW

**my lovely henna***



so this is the original deisng--- i got it from the internet:

the design of my likings-- i mailed a few henna artists to ask them the fee, availability and whether they can do my preferred design or not...





the henna session bermula!




look at my palm girls! (not my tired face ;p)




see how halus and details her henna drawing~~~

sama dengan the design yang i sent!! (scroll up!)

kak norish drew henna on my kaki by only refering to the printed version of the photo i mailed her! hebatttttttt~~~!





merah gila plsssss. RED!




(not to mention i love my wedding ring + engagement ring together) ;p


and sooo... my first nikah review on my henna which i love, love, love!


i called a few henna artists 2 months before my wedding.


i was shocked knowing how the service can be sooooo expensive.

one henna artist even quoted me RM360.... wuuuuu~~




so i keep on doing research and what not.


apparently price is not my major consent but whether they can draw the henna like how i wanted or not...


i even ask about the color--- i want a red henna


(not orange, nor marron. apatah lagi black.. haruslah tak mau kan?)







i am so lucky to have kak norish as my henna artist.


kak norish and husband reached carcosa seri negara at 3pm.


i walked em to my suite... and kak norish mula melukis.


Goodness.... gila amazed with her talent.


plus, she's so particular on choosing what type of henna.


lain bahagian lain brand ok...?


untuk fingers cap pakai henna lain jenis,


untuk lukis jenis lain....




the reason according to her, tapak tangan lebih cepat merah, so tak boleh pakai inai yang mmg cepat merah sbb by the time dia siap lukis takut inai warna gelap (amazing kan?)


she took 3hours to do the drawings.


serious penyabar sungguh orangnya.


very prompt in replying mails, cepat reply sms and phone calls, lukisan teliti dan halus, bakat semulajadi, inai yang sangat merah, orangnya ramah, all that come with a price....




a REASONABLE price!



trust me... untuk pakej tapak tangan-atas tangan- kaki- kuku tangan dan kaki, semualah----


it starts with RM100!! iyeeeeee


atau kalau nak over bagi design, menjalar sampai atas kaki (tutup parut) ;p --- RM200 only!


sangat reasonable kan? plus... dah masuk transportation fee!








Yahoo!!!

(tell her yuyu tv3 recommend. anyway, u can always email her ur favourite design-- she can draw accordingly. good luck all!)
