A pink-red chocolate gift basket, movie and a bit of Nilam
A lovely gift for Nurhani’s mother. Lollichocs are complimentary from Lonia
I’m not in the mood to write but I don’t have anything else good to do either. I just woke up from a nap and having difficulty to get back to sleep again. I’m trying to make it a habit to hit the sack at 11 pm and wake up at 3 or 4 am to do my work , with my new sleeping routine I feel less fatigue and sleepy during day time. So, I guess…it’s kinda working for me who doesn’t have the luxury to do my work at peace especially during day time hence I got to do all of it at night.
Oh btw, me and husband went to watch Season of the Witch last Saturday and we both agreed that the movie was so-so. Despite having Nicholas Cage as the main actor, the movie failed to impress me. But since we didn’t have much choice (Malay’s ghost movie is not an option) , therefore we were pretty thankful that Season of the Witch was still available for us. Hubby was bored masa tengok, he pretended that he was falling asleep on my shoulder. Hihi. But then continue watching half hearted sudah.
And then on Sunday morning, I woke up quite early and went to SSF store with hubby to get a basket and some materials for decorations. I was thinking to get it done fast so that I can shoot it and then keluar pergi jumpa tailor with Isma. But semua plan tk jadi because ada teknikal problem sikit dalam process menyediakan the basket for photography. Ended up, we were being dragged few hours to get it right. Selalu bila tengok bakul-bakul hadiah and hamper, mesti ada yg berkata..alaaa mcm tu jer? ikat2 riben dah charge that much?
Tahukah anda, proses utk “design” hiasan tidak lah semudah seperti yang ternampak di mata. Tengok benda yg dah siap memang senang. Tapi nk buat menitis keringat darah ok. Firstly nk kene fikir, mcm mana nk reka rekaan hiasan yang different from your previous creation, type of pattern for the ribbons yang nk diguna. Trust me it’s not that easy as it looks when it comes to combining ribbons and other material and then nak put it together nicely. I tried few combination and those managed to get its way to the bin. Huhu.

Same goes to Nilam scarf, I got to redo and redo again so many time. Till I lost count how many trips I’ve made to the tailor shop before I can really get what I want. Measurement definitely got to be correct, styling and sizing got to be perfect and not to forget wearable too! All these works require lots of patience and I’m quite happy that I’m pretty much there already
Alright will talk more about Nilam soon, am in the midst preparing Nilam’s blog. Dah ada 2 posts dah. Hehe. Nnt ada few more posts I open to public ok As for the gift basket, theme color is pink, but I don’t quite really like it if it is all pink, so I added some other colors like red and white as well to balance it up. This time around no sparkling juice since this will be delivered to Johor Bahru via Pos Laju tomorrow. Nurhani didn’t request for any gift tag, but I made one “happy birthday ibu” to make the basket looks more cheerful and attractive. I guess I wanna keep that as my signature in designing a gift basket (providing I got the time do it, because sometimes if the order being placed too last minute, afraid that we would not be able to do our magic )
p/s: I’m going back to my hometown this week. To those who wants to order my mom “famous amos” cookies “Chipoatmond” , do contact me for ordering. Price is RM38 per bottle and RM35 for 2 and above.
To all happy monday!
