Under the weather & Preview of our Chocolate Hamper for Hari Raya
I’m not feeling so well. Ramadhan kali ini mmg sungguh mencabar, dengan nk menjaga anak, berniaga Usana dan Chocolate, dengan nk ambil gambar product, edit gambar, design works and not to forget my “scarf/hijab” for Nilam is also making progress. Last Saturday, we went to see tailor and I waited there with my husband until the tailor finished sewing the scarf. My husband slept on the floor, while me sat side by side with Kak Naimah to instruct on how to sew the scarf, she masa tu pon tk boleh nk imagine lagi my idea tu. I found that this is the best method to do R&D for fashion design.
So, for 4 hours we focusing on jahit, then kalau tk jadi, kene bukak balik and jahit lagi..sampai lah lastly dapat jadi mcm yg I imagine. Tinggal sket-sket nk touch up utk jadi elok betul. But roughly “scarf/hijab” tu memang dah jadi.
Thanks to Solleh (my ex-schoolmate) who introduced her sister to me. I have yet to try another tailor yg recommended by my readers, ada lagi 2 so far, kene try satu-satu , tengok workmanship as well as upah jahit. Hope I can finalize everything soon. Utk raya ni, ada harapan nk beraya dengan my scarf I showed my scarf to my mom and she said my scarf mcm scarf org arab . Hihi. I loike that.
One thing paling special with my scarf tu I rasa firstly sbb dia sesuai utk semua jenis muka, especially muka bulat and also scarf tu boleh jadi dress juga (aha!). The scarf was inspired by me, I mean the design was actually to suit my style. I need something that’s fast and less hassle to wear but still look stunning and stylish (because Imran doesn’t like to wait and sometimes my scarf doesn’t want to co-operate with me so I decided to invent something that’s easy to wear and no more bad scarf day) Other than that I also need a scarf that does not accentuate my round shape chubby face. So, siapa yg berminat scarf ala ladyimran ni, just stay tune ok. Skettttt jer lagi. Gimme some more time to finalize everything.
To me, I like lah scarf tu, tatau la org lain kan. Sbb I design pon utk myself pakai actually, idea nk jual the scarf tu datang kemudian. So, kalau u guys tak suka nnt, jgn marah ok. Haha. Sbb yg penting I suka!
On different note, my chocolate business is booming. Alhamdullilah. My sister and I worked so hard to prepare sample and completing orders. We never thought that the respond can be this good and fast too. Our Facebook group page has already exceeding 3000 members and we definitely need to open a new fan page soon since group page has limitation up to 5000 members only.
I need to sleep now, I don’t want to sleep too late anymore and fall sick often. Enjoy pictures of our Chocolate Hamper for Hari Raya. Details and pictures of the components for the hamper will be update later because now, I need to rest.
This is roughly how the hamper looks like. We are pretty amateur in making hamper, so tk sure ribbon yg macam mana sesuai. Kain alas tu won’t be that big kalau utk real hamper. We will cut it to fit the box nicely. Yg ni kami sajer tk cut sbb nk kasik nampak mcm harta karun. Haha.
The boxes and bottles. We use hard type material. No cardboard or soft plastic box for hamper.
I fall in love with the wooden tray. It’s so beautiful and suit Hari Raya theme. Thanks to Ain who introduced me to the wooden tray. However, it is pretty limited, so subject to availability. Saper nk wooden tray ni kene order sepantas kilat ok. You can buy 1 or bulk. Both also possible it just that price would bit cheaper lah kalau beli bulk. Price ranging from RM100 to RM120 kalau tk silap. We are pretty generous, there are lots of chocolates inside the box. Various type some more! Macam-macam ado!
The wrapper for the cbocolate bar was a bit oversize. Haha. Dah lama tk guna printer, kekok nk setting sizing masa print.
