"Ketupat" Chocolate for Aidilfitri

I got a plan for tomorrow morning, hence need to sleep early tonight and I guess I will just leave you guys with 2 photos of Lonia chocolates. Just realized that haven’t publish some of the pictures here as I only uploaded it in facebook and totally forgot to blog about it. Ahh me and my forgetfulness. …..

If you can’t get ketupat asli for hari raya, why not try our “Ketupat” chocolate? It is very tiny and not too sweet sbb kami combine 2 layers of chocolate. Top layer is white chocolate and bottom is milk, so that the sweet taste of white chocolate can be reduce a bit. You can also opt to single flavor if you don’t fancy double layer chocolate and green color ketupat chocolate also available. Yeah like a real ketupat!

It is also easy to be eaten with just one bite (u don’t even need to bite actually, letak jer atas lidah and kemam-kemam, but for me, kalau makan chocolate I always kene gigit la dulu hehe, sbb dah habit)

We are still open for orders for the chocolates for late buyer. But we are in alarm mode already though not alarm zone yet :) We are still capable to take orders with one condition, all orders must be place and send before 1/9. So, we are really sorry that we cannot entertain sapa-sapa yg nak pick up the orders last minute (except yang dah book earlier and dah buat payment). Mcm dah dekat nk raya nk pickup, because so far kami buat chocolate ni fresh..yes it is really a fresh homemade choc, tailor made to your order. So, kalau dah nk dekat2 nk raya baru nk pick up kami worried takut tk sempat  and afraid that unforeseen circumstances might happen. To be on the safe side, we gonna set the last delivery date on 1st of September (Wednesday) and we only take the orders seriously after full payment being made.

After that, if still ada orders coming in and we think we are capable to take the order, we will still accept it. So, don’t be shy to ask ok. Kalau kami relaks takder kerja nk buat, we will make the chocolate for you, but kalau big orders most probably tk sempat lah. Small-small one can :)

So, have fun all, shopping raya this weekend ok :) Selamat bershopping!

p.s: oh btw, orders for “the brand” (msg me if you wanna know what is “The Brand”, if you  have a very sharp eyes kindly observe, hint is everywhere on my blog) supplement and health care products sentiasa open bila-bila masa ok sebab memang takder time limit utk order . have you ready with new stock of your daily supplement and diet shake? nnt masa raya you will desperately need all that. trust me :)

p.p.s: Need a hint of what “The Brand” is? Ok here goes…am an independent distributor of what company?

Wishlist ~ Camera Bag

I can’t sleep and kinda boring too. I have no idea to blog and no movie to watch. So, just terkebil-kebil depan laptop with no direction at all. I try nk shoot gambar lollichoc yg my sis buat, since dah pending lama sangat. But then too bad setiap kali I ready nk amik ada jerlah barang yg kurang. I need the styrofoam lah to cucuk the lollichoc, I saw it on the fridge semalam, today dah hilang plak. Haihh. And I wasn’t that rajin to play McGyver tadi, so simply pack my gadget dalam bag balik.

Hmm speaking of bag, actually I don’t have a proper camera bag. I’m currently just using my nike sport bag to keep my camera. Thin material of the bag is  seriously lack of protection for the camera and lenses. So, I make sure I handle the camera with care since the bag doesn’t.

Roughly price for small (not that small lah, just nice for my humble camera and lenses) bag is ranging in between RM150-RM199 (tak tahu lah original ker tak, I saw it at Digital Mall PJ). There few brands such as Canon, Bagman and Crumpler. Oh no, am not talking about the boring black bulky and boxy camera bag. That one very unflattering. I’m looking for a camera bag that does not scream “this is a camera bag!”.

I can’t find any photo for Bagman camera bag (lazy to dig further ) but it does looks similar to Crumpler and Canon camera bag. Similar style.

However, am kinda attracted to this Caselogic SLRC-205 SLR Camera Sling . It’s sort of like a backpack, but it can be rotated to your side so you can unzip and remove the camera very quickly. Cool uh?

Boleh letak tripod, double cool!

Ok now, saper nk donate or chip in duit so I dpt beli camera bag ni? Hehe. Mana-mana readers I yg kaya-raya boleh lah kalau nk sponsor me the bag. Sangat dialu-alukan ok. Huhu. U know what I read in the newspaper today that bunch of beggars being arrested due to they are actually a blood sucking poser. They claimed being cheated by a con-man but later kinda liking the job after realizing they can actually make lots of money just by sitting and put up a sad pity face. I was pretty shocked when some them had claimed that the make thousands of ringgit up to RM8k in a month! hey, that’s a lottttt mannnn. Lagi banyak dari gaji I masa kerja as engineer dulu. Siot.

Hmm ok now saper nk donate? Hehe..Duit I dah habis beli baju raya. Wahahah. And since maybe (maybeeeeee ok, trip tk confirm lagi) I’ll follow my mother in law to Japan in October, so I really need to save up money, but at the same time I need the camera bag as well, so that I could jalan-jalan and take pictures nanti. Pastu nk beli boots lagi. Hmmm…duit duit alangkah best kalau dia mengalir cam air paip.

Is that a flower? No! It's a Chocolate!

Can’t wait to balik kampung this weekend. My mom surely dah start busy baking cookies sekarang. Tahun ni Lonia | the sweet tooth fairy sponsor my mom some chocoflakes . Hehe. Kalau habis cepat sangat, no worries we can make sepantas kilat on hari raya tu jugak. Haaa hebat tk hebat Lonia Choc? Hahaha. Tapi shhhh tk boleh buat depan orang, sbb top secret tu, so nnt pinjam markas kuih mak I..heeee (top secret la sangat kan, nk buat senang jer, rajin tk rajin jerlah isunya…tukang buat tk ramai, tukang beli memang ramai, tukang makan lagiiiiiii ramai <—termasuklah saya)

Do you know that we can actually eat rose?

My sister seems can’t stop making chocolate. Macam terkena sampukan. Hehe. Hari-hari ada jer chocolate baru dia buat, and saya adalah suffer sbb byk sangat gambar-gambar yang pending dalam my pc. Itu belum gambar-gambar chocolate yg pending belum diambil (tengah teringat lollichoc disney yg ada dalam peti sejuk, nk kene shoot gak tu, haihhh)

Ahhh sometimes I can be a lazy bum. Hurmm it’s not that I’m lazy to snap photo , in fact  you guys pon tahu that I love photography so much, but setting up the background, adjusting lighting and all tu yg buat haku jadi malas. Sbb nya buat sorang-sorang ok.

Can you imagine, there were many times when I need to snap the photo alone, no one around to help me (most of the time lah, sbb normally I shoot pukul 2-3 pagi masa Ichiro tido, if not semua gambar ada muka Ichiro jadi model nnt..hehe) and I need to kepit lampu with my jari kaki, one hand pegang kamera, the other hand pegang lagi satu study lamp, then badan kene melentik and bend ke belakang sket utk dapat good angle. Boleh imagine tak? How hard it is to photograph a product photo alone without proper prop and tools. Jadilah cacat begitu. But, bila gambar-gambar tu cun and cantik, sure tk terbayangkan betapa acrobaticnya I nk ambil all those pictures. Hihi. I should get someone to photograph me during one of the shooting session nnt. Hehe. Macam gaya ninja ok…ehe.

Lovey Dovey box made of chocolate

Gambar chocolate dah berselerak, I should start organizing all the pics lah. Sbb once Lonia website siap revamp nnt, I need to re-edit the photos and replace the watermark with Lonia watermark. Baru nampak proper. Tapi zaman bila tah nk organize tu? Kena ada anjakan paradigma baru boleh nk sit down and go through all the piccies. Berpinau!

Oh btw, to those yang wondering whether not the chocolate is safe for long journey especially yang duduk far from KL, here a photo of ice box that we used to pack one of our recent order and sent it to Langkawi. After 3 days journey (if I’m not mistaken), the chocolates safely arrived in good condition. Tkder cair-cair bagai. You can request us to provide ice box for better protection upon placing order. Price per ice box is RM10, however delivery charge for sending item in an ice box is slightly high, but affordable.

Our chocolate nicely packed in an ice box

Langkawi is by far the farthest destination our chocolate has reached

At the moment we have two types of courier method; one is registered post and another one is pos laju. Pos Laju bit expensive but fast ,while registered post is of course much cheaper but somewhat slower bit than pos laju. Tapi tak la slow sangat, kami pernah deliver to Negeri Sembilan in 3 days dah sampai by registered post (tapi bukan I jamin ok 3 days dah sampai, if you are lucky sampailah cepat..so disarankan berdoa banyak-banyak..ehe). Paling murah of course self-pickup lah. FOC. Ehe.

Nk tengok gallery chocolate kami, for the time being we just make use Facebook platform sehabis baik dulu, before migrating to our official domain and shopping portal.

Proton and Lonia

I was so excited to enter Proton 25 years contest few months back, but unfortunately since Imran is an employee of Proton, I came to know that we can’t enter the contest, whadda bummer! The prize was no doubt very tempting though, RM25k cash, sape tanak kan? Haha but too bad for us. Ada la jugak try nk masuk secara haram…hahaha tapi dah haram namanya so tuhan tk restu, so plan backfire at the end.

Few days later after the contest has been closed, suddenly Proton announced internal contest for all the staffs. Even though the prize can’t be compared to RM25,000 cash money lah, tapi with competition spirit yg masih berbaki dalam diri (ehe), I pon join jerlah. Lagipon all the gambar-gambar dah siap just nk submit jer.

But then lama-lama we totally forgot about it. Until Imran saw this on Proton official website (for an unknown reason, the website load extremely slow, I think Proton must do something. I tunggu loading petang tadi sampai tertido boleh? Seriously mmg I tertido sbb I was on my back atas katil masa tu)

Notice picture of a small boy with the steering wheel? Yessssss…that’s my son Ichiro! Apparently, photo of Ichiro has been chosen to be featured at Proton main page. Wah kembang sungguh rasa hati :) Menang ker tak menang dunno yet lah result belum announce, but dah jadi gambar hiasan utk main page pon dah cukup seronot ok! Tak sia-sia mommy terbalik-balik dalam kereta nk amik gambar si kicik ni.

Here the picture in larger size.

Muka pemandu berhemat dimasa hadapan. Heeee. Drive carefully ok sayang.

Another great news, logo design work for my chocolate is finally finished. I’m so excited and happy with the end results. After some amendments (of course..knowing me selagi tk perfect dimataku selagi tu kene edit..hehe), here the final look of the logo. I would say that am pretty happy with Miezam service and definitely would love to recommend him to all of you especially business owner yg perlukan logo or other business stationary, do head to Miezam’s blog and be prepared to awe. Hehe. He’s a dude tapi gifted with creative fingers. All the lovely craft works pon done by him. Perempuan-perempuan yg keras tangan (like yours truly :P) haruslah mengambil iktibar. Ehe.

Cute little fairy with gigi. Gigi saper tu ada cop bintang?

Actually, I ordered full package business stationary, will write about it in special entry once semua yg I order dah siap. I’m pretty impress with anak muda melayu bernama Miezam ni and harap-harap ramai lagi orang-orang melayu specifically youth yang can shine and of course rajin like him. And by the way, thanks to Emma who introduced him to me couple of weeks ago. Actually, I wasn’t looking for designer tapi masa tu  sajer-sajer asking around for designer to introduce to my friend. Tapi bila tengok mcm best Miezam punye design, so I pon try la for my choc biz. Hihi. Can’t wait for my other biz stationary like header/banner, gift tag, sticker, call card and the best part complimentary “Official Lonia Chocolate Bar Wrapper!” coooooooooollll!

Ni ada some of his craft work yg I minat. I tatau apa benda ni sebenarnya, tapi tengok mcm lawa :D

Those yg interested, here is Miezam’s contact number. And don’t forget to check his blog ok. Tolonglah tengok blog dia…comel sangat all his creations! rugi tak tengok okkkkk.

Busy weekend

Me with my uni frens (back in year 1999 till 2003). Picture courtesy of Teejay.

What a busy weekend!! Went to buka puasa with my uni friends on Saturday and then with my hubby’s frens on Sunday plak. Before that on Saturday morning we woke up unusual early just to shop at Jalan Tuanku Abdul Rahman or best known as Jalan TAR. Bought some fabrics for my scarf, new shoes and samping for Imran and some brooches. We rushed back home after that sbb tanak susahkan family to jaga Ichiro lama-lama sangat. Nnt susah pula kalau diaorg nk keluar. Lagipon, petang nk pergi Sunway to buka puasa with my frens so memang tk boleh lama-lama dekat Jalan TAR.

Meriah kt Jalan TAR lagu raya dah berkumandang, walaupon still too early lah kan, puasa pon tk sampai 2 minggu lagi, but those raya songs memang buat suasana lagi seronok dan meriah :) Imran sampai baik hati belanja entah pakcik mana beli butang baju melayu. Hahaha. Actually bukan lah nk belanja, both of them were actually plan nk share beli, mcm kalau beli 2 kotak dapat lagi murah compare to beli single box, so masa nk bayar he kinda tkder duit kecik, and we pon tkder duit kecik nk pulangkan baki, so since Ramadhan, lets us do something (bak kata Zleqha)…Imran just hadiahkan jer the button, so, the pakcik happily walked away with free butang baju melayu. Rezeki dia :)

I still belum beli kasut, thinking of buying something in “turquoise blue”, pakai turquoise shoes dengan golden+mustard dress?? Well…lets see nnt =) Furthermore, pagi tadi I went to Ampang Park with my mother in law, she belanja me kebaya sulam kerawang (ala kebaya nyonya ~ my fav!), so ada pertambahan baju raya disitu. Hihi. I mmg dah banyak similar type of kebaya so thinking nk stop buying kebaya for a while, but if it is for free…haha can’t say no lah kan. I chose Olive Green (my fav color also) kebaya, so matching la kot dgn kasut turquoise blue but I don have a matching kain and scarf. Hmmm. Tk sure sempat ker tak nk cari scarf and kain ni.

Ichiro kami nk cari samping for him, mesti cute pakai samping…hihi. Baju raya belum beli, but we don’t worry much lah, sbb baju Ichiro ni mmg hari-hari beli baju. Dah melimpah ruah dalam bilik, sampai I histeria bila Ichiro datang mood rajin dia tolong kemas baju-baju dia tu. Arghhhh mcm baru lepas turun hujan baju dari langit.

Hmm tadi buka puasa with Imran’s frens dekat Bagan Lalang (jauh kan?). But too bad I makan tk kenyang. We got to take turn utk makan and since Imran mmg suka sangat seafood, so I let him makan puas-puas while me jaga Ichiro or to be exact dukung him most of the time sbb he’ll be running everywhere and tempat tu mcm bahaya sket sbb bawah ada air laut, so I takut karang lari-lari terjatuh dalam laut. Ahhh sudahhh. The thought of it terrified me so much, so takper biar I penat dukung asalkan anak I selamat.

Balik sampai jer rumah, the first thing I said to my hubby…

“i lapar…”
