Jakel Sales Day

aaron aziz by jakel

Beli  baju melayu Aaron Aziz ni dapat butang free. Harga biasa RM220 tapi dia kata harga junam is RM180. Persoalannya junam ker harga tu? Haha. Apa2 pon saya bersyukur sbb dapat discount. Boleh hensem macam Aaron Aziz ke pakai baju ni? Nnt kita tengok Imran hensem ke tak ok.

Jakel sales dah habis dah. Last day hari Ahad hari tu. Tahun ni I’ve decided to make all the bajus super early. Sbb tahun lepas rasanya baju first raya pon tk berapa nak senonoh haha. Tak senonoh maknanya bukanlah baju tradisional melayu macam kurung ker, kurung moden ker. I think last year I simply bought few blouses and paired it with skirts. So much of being practical and savvy. Konon-konon selesa dan boleh pakai la baju2 tu walaupon bukan hari raya. Hmmm…partly it’s true, but the Raya spirit isn’t there. Deep inside my heart I felt something is missing. Jadinya Raya mesti pakai baju tradisional ok.

Tahun ni rekaan baju adalah berdasarkan “how to dress thinner and slimmer” Haha. Walaupun bila saya rekakan baju utk orang, pandai pula nak cari rekaan yang kurus2. Tapi bila baju sendiri, reka ikut suka hati boleh gitu? Memang bila siap pakai berupa tong drum la bergerak la jawabnya nnt. Jadi tahun ni muhasabah diri sikit, buat baju yang sedap pakai, nampak kurus dan boleh pakai berkali2. Huhu. Dan tudung pon nk kene design yang boleh nampak slim sket muka. Too bad I ni chubby from top to toe. Ehe. But dah turun sikit (sikit la tapinya, sbb tk berapa disiplin) berat sbb minum diet shake Cosway.

Pergi Jakel Ahad lepas punyalah ramai manusia dalam kedai jakel tu. Sebab hari last harga junam katanya. Takderlah junam benar pon harganya, utk kain yang saya beli tu, harga tk la murah benar, yg junam2 ni kain2 yang orang tk berapa nak beli. Haha. Tapi kain cotton yang lawa2 tu murah la kot rasanya sbb tgk ramai org beli. But since I can’t wear cotton so didn’t bother to check it at all. Cotton silk ok kot sebab dia tk tebal sangat tapi nnt bila pakai dia cam berkedut ataupun bergaris2 mengikut garisan lemak, jadi sekian terima kasih jer lah. Haha.

So I bought some plain and printed chiffon, then some lycra material for 2 my sons’ baju melayu (yaaa baju melayu diaorg tahun ni guna kain lycra , boleh pakai sampai tidur malam jadi pyjamas hehe), pastu songket utk samping budak2 ni sbb susah benar nk cari samping yg sama dan baju melayu Aaron Aziz for my husband. Hahaha akhirnya Imran ada baju Aaron Aziz setelah sekian lama asyik gelakkan gambar iklan baju melayu Aaron Aziz tu. Tak tahu la apasal nk gelak, saja2 suka nk gelak and make fun of the iklan.

Sabtu ini urusan penempahan, marilah berdoa supaya baju jadi (tapi saya buat baju biasa2 jer pon so should be ok) dan I can look kurus. Itu yang penting! Bila baju dah siap, boleh simpan elok2 dalam cupboard dan focus siapkan produk2 telekung untuk Ramadhan dan Syawal. Insyallah. Awal sangat ker planning saya ni? Sesungguhnya peredaraan masa di akhir zaman ni seperti kobaran api. Iaitu sangat pantas. Tahu2 dah akhir tahun 2014. Tengoklah nnt.

Selamat Tahun Baru & Tempahan Jahit Telekung Berwarna

telekung berwarna rabiah lavender pink laceAlhamdullilah selepas lama juga tutup tempahan disebabkan ada masalah dgn produksi, saya kembali semula menerima tempahan untuk menjahit telekung, terutama sekali telekung berwarna. Telekung putih pon ada juga. Design pula terhad kepada telekung RABIAH, mini telekung HERA dan tudung selendang segera LELASARI.

HERA tu baru lagi diperkenalkan, saya pon tk ada lagi gambar yg formal, ada gambar mak mertua saya sahaja yang saya sempat siapkan mini telekung Hera itu utk dia sebelum dia berlepas ke tanah haram utk mengerjakan umrah 2 minggu lepas. Yang mak mertua saya pakai tu adalah versi percubaan, jadi saya tak begitu berani nak bermain dgn warna kerana takut mama saya tk berapa suka, jadi saya buat yang simple sahaja dan mini telekung tu saya hiasi sedikit dgn batu2 rhinestone untuk nampak lebih menarik. Insyallah nnt kalau ada gambar yang lebih jelas saya akan masukkan ke blog segera ya.

mini telekung HERA mekah

mini telekung HERA mekah-3

LELASARI pula saya ingin ubah sedikit rekaannya, utk jadi lebih mudah dipakai tanpa menggunakan brooch di bawah dagu (kepada sesiapa yang tidak tahu, Lelasari ialah selendang chiffon segera dimana cara memakainya adalah mudah sekadar disarung tanpa perlu menggunakan pin) Insyallah nanti kita lihat hasil r&d ya. Tapi rekaan LELASARI yang sekarang ini pon dah cukup mudah utk dipakai sebenarnya, sekadar sarung dan sematkan satu brooch di kepala sudah memadai. Saya sangat gemarkan instant shawl lelasari (bukan kerana saya yg merekanya dan menjualnya, tetapi memang kerana ianya sangat sangat mudah utk dipakai) , sehinggakan saya sudah berhenti membeli tudung2 atau selendang2 lain, dan cuma memakai lelasari sahaja. Saya ada dalam 15 tudung lelasari rasanya. Tetapi saya kurang sedikit menjual lelasari kerana beberapa masalah , jadi oleh kerana ada permintaan dari pelanggan untuk menempah lelasari, jadi saya terfikir untuk menerima tempahan menjahit lelasari juga (sebelum ini, saya cuma menjual ready made stock sahaja)

Tudung Lelasari Instant Shawl Red Black ButterflyOk itu sahaja pengumuman berkenaan Nilam Boutique buat masa ini. Nanti saya umumkan tawaran pakej umrah dengan MR Travel & Services. Sesiapa yang beli pakej umrah Silver atau Gold dgn MR Travel & Services dan memberikan nama Nilam Boutique KL sebagai introducer, akan mendapat mini telekung HERA secara percuma utk setiap pakej yang dibeli (silver atau gold sahaja) Menarik tak? Ok nnt kita esok lusa kita bicara tentang itu ya.

Buat masa ini, cukup setakat ini sbb dah malam, Selamat Tahun Baru kepada semua. Harapan saya, di harap tahun ini tidaklah habis terlalu cepat sehingga tidak disedari oleh kita. Semoga kita semua mampu utk penuhi setiap detik waktu dengan perkara2 yang bermanfaat dan mendatangkan pahala, dengan itu insyallah masa tidak habis terlalu cepat dan disia-siakan oleh kita. Semoga beroleh kejayaan kepada semua. Insyallah.

Setting Up New Beauty & Household Store

Sarah, Rawang stockist

That’s Sarah, she never fails to put up her biggest and sweetest smile

I could never thank Allah enough for the blessing and protection that he granted to me. My Co***y downline Sarah has already passed all the necessary interview and training, and she has been awarded a store in Rawang (nearby her house in Rawang) Congratulations Sarah and hope that you will be a successful store owner in the future. Many thanks to my upline also for helping her with stock checking and store set up. Alhamdullilah our team has grown stronger each days with endless support from the upline and team members.

Many have asked me when will I get a shop? since my downline has already got one. Ok here are the answers to that question. I’ve been offered two stores previously, one in Giant Shah Alam and another one in Ikano. However, I wasn’t keen since I don’t really fancy store in a mall, and both locations are pretty a long way from my house. Ikano isn’t far but the traffic and parking can make me go real nuts.

Please click on image to enlarge it

There are 2 methods to get a shop in Co***y, the first one is to take over existing shop from the previous owner who wants to leave the shop. The second method is to provide a licensed pharmacist as a partner and send a request to HQ to open a pharmacy shop. So, since I’m still looking for a pharmacist to partner up with me, therefore I’m not qualified for a pharmacy shop, in brief I can only wait for an existing store that is vacant. Even so, that is not a problem to me since I’m pretty comfortable doing networking and sell products online. Thus, no rush for me, I can wait for my dream shop to become available. Plus in January Co***y new smart consumer plan will start to run , so there are many fresh great things to offer to my customer and potential business owner, I’ll get myself busier. Awesome!

Enjoy some photos of Sarah, upline and her team setting up her shop last few weeks. Oh by the way to those who are interested to apply for a beauty / pharmacy store like Sarah for FREE (well…almost free not 100% free) , you may contact me and I’ll pass you all the details that you need to know.

Chia Seed Benefits: 10 Reasons To Add Chia To Your Diet

Reblog this article about benefits of Chia Seed from this website http://www.huffingtonpost.ca/2013/06/03/chia-seed-benefits-_n_3379831.html It’s a good and easy to understand article about benefits of chia seed and at the end of the article I’ll let you know how you can get hold some supplies of Halal Chia Seed at a very good price. People who are struggling with diet and diabetic should pay attention as Chia Seed has been known as superfood and it can help you in your quest to lose weight or bring down your blood sugar level. Read on.

chia-seeds-on-wooden-spoon

Ch-ch-ch-chia! The fuzzy green novelty items may be the first thing you think of when you hear the word chia, but these tiny superfood seeds are the reason Chia Pets get their lush coating. Nowadays, chia is becoming better known as a great source of healthy omega-3 fats and fibre, and fortunately it’s an easy food to add to your diet.

Chia seeds come from a flowering plant in the mint family that’s native to Mexico and Guatemala, and history suggests it was a very important food crop for the Aztecs. It’s remained in regular use in its native countries, but was largely unknown in North America until researcher Wayne Coates began studying chia as an alternative crop for farmers in northern Argentina about 29 years ago.

Coates started his work on chia in 1991, and since then has become an advocate of the tiny seed’s health benefits. The human trials are limited —as is often the case with food research— but the anecdotal evidence of chia’s positive health effects include boosting energy, stabilizing blood sugar, aiding digestion, and lowering cholesterol.

The little seed — which comes in either white or a dark brown and black colour — also has a huge nutritional profile. It contains calcium, manganese, and phosphorus, and is a great source of healthy omega-3 fats. As an added benefit, chia seeds can be eaten whole or milled, while flax seeds have to be ground before consumption in order to access their health benefits for example.

When you’re buying chia, both the white and black seeds are good choices, but Coates warns to make sure you’re getting a good quality product by avoiding either red seeds (immature chia seeds), or black seeds that are smaller than regular chia seeds (weed seeds). Coates sells the seeds himself, but they are available from many different health food stores and supermarkets.

So once you’ve got your seeds, how to you add them to your diet? “The easiest way is to add it to everything and anything,” Coates says. The seeds are tasteless so they won’t affect the flavour profile of your food, which makes them easy to integrate into your meals. They can be sprinkled whole on top of salads or toast or added milled to smoothies, and Coates says that some of his customers even add them to ice cream. (And yes, you can even sprout it and eat it that way too!)

LOOK — 10 reasons to add chia seeds to your diet:

Combat Diabetes
Chia is being studied as a potential natural treatment for type-2 diabetes because of its ability to slow down digestion. The gelatinous coating chia seeds develops when exposed to liquids-can also prevent blood sugar spikes.

Get More Fibre
Just a 28-gram or one-ounce serving of chia has 11 grams of dietary fibre — about a third of the recommended daily intake for adults. Adding some chia to your diet is an easy way to make sure you’re getting a good amount of fibre, which is important for digestive health.

Stock Up On Omega-3
Chia seeds are packed with omega-3 fatty acids, with nearly five grams in a one-ounce serving. These fats are important for brain health. “There’s better conversion of omega 3s into the plasma or into the food than with flax seed,” said researcher Wayne Coates.

Stronger Teeth And Bones
A serving of chia seeds has 18 per cent of the recommended daily intake for calcium, which puts your well on your way to maintaining bone and oral health, and preventing osteoporosis.

Don’t Forget Manganese
Manganese isn’t a well-known nutrient, but it’s important for our health: it’s good for your bones and helps your body use other essential nutrients like biotin and thiamin. One serving of chia seeds, or 28 grams, has 30 per cent of your recommended intake of this mineral.

Plenty Of Phosphorus
With 27 per cent of your daily value for phosphorus, chia seeds also helps you maintain healthy bones and teeth. Phosphorus is also used by the body to synthesize protein for cell and tissue growth and repair.

Pack In The Protein
Chia seeds also make a great source of protein for vegetarians and don’t have any cholesterol. One 28-gram serving of these super seeds has 4.4 grams of protein, nearly 10 per cent of the daily value.

Fight Belly Fat
Chia’s stabilizing effect on blood sugar also fights insulin resistance which can be tied to an increase in belly fat, according to Live Strong. This type of resistance can also be harmful for your overall health.

Get Full. Faster
Tryptophan, an amino acid found in turkey, is also found in chia seeds. While tryptophan is responsible for that strong urge to nap after a big Thanksgiving dinner for example, it also helps regulate appetite, sleep and improve mood.

Improve Heart Health
According to the Cleveland Clinic, chia seeds have been shown to improve blood pressure in diabetics, and may also increase healthy cholesterol while lowering total, LDL, and triglyceride cholesterol. All good news for your ticker!
