Kronologi Lunch, Dinner Bawak ke Sahur di Taja Oleh Mumbay Tekstil

Seperti yang anda semua sedia maklum, #teamkawenmakesah telah pun menamatkan misi berkampung di Jakarta selama 5hari 4malam pada tarikh 09-Jun-2017 hingga 13-Jun-2017. Tapi boss lebey duk extra sehari, tajaan sepenuhnya oleh Air Asia yg gagal menyediakan penerbangan pulang ke tanah air malam 13-Jun-2017 tersebut. So Makesah extend sehari sampai 14hb, Air Asia bagi hotel free ☺. Yang tu nanti kite cerite.

So sepanjang 5hari di Kota Jakarta, berikut adalah senarai2 persiapan perkahwinan yang sempat di cover oleh #teamkawenmakesah dalam tempoh tersebut:

1. Material
    a. Mempelai
    b. Keluarga Mempelai (Both Side)
    c. Flower Girls/Boys
    d. Bride's Maids
    e. Pelamin (Tunang)
2. Kad Kawen
3. Baju Tunang (naseb je ni)

So Makesah sembang kisah sehari well spent di Pasar Mayestik saje dlm post kali ini. Memandangkan memang satu hari tu #teamkawenmakesah duk kat Mumbay Tekstil dr bukak kul 11 pagi sampai kul 4 ptg. Item 2 Makesah akan buat separate post utk review vendor kad kawen from Pasar Tebet, baju tunang tu kalau rajin hakak review la. Kalau tak sorry, tak dayo. Haha

Sementare tunggu Kerol nak tukar baju lah, Makesah nak iron tudung lah. So quarter passed 10 baru lah kluar and naik blue bird from Thamrin City to Pasar Mayestik. Accomodation kat Thamrin City juga adalah awesome, nanti ade mase hakak share. So approximately almost 11 mcm tu, sampai sane trus tuju Sanggar Tekstil sebab perasan mcm last year shopping bnyk plastik Sanggar. Tapi sebab susun atur mcm terlampau pack, susah nak tgk, lampu pun mcm tak berapa nak hado. So hakak terus lah, "Makasih yaaa, nanti kembali". Terus berlalu menuju ke Mumbay Tekstil tanpa berfikir panjang.

Bare with me, I have no intention of keeping my post simple. Haha. Kalau bole hakak nak korang dapat feel tu, turun naik level 2, level 1. Pegi ground floor, naik tingkat 2 balik. Turun bawah carik pak Bhim, naik atas balik. Dah turun kat ground floor, pastu pak Bhim paksa gi makan kat level 1 and so on. Hihi

As I walked into the 3 storey shop, Pak Bhim mcm dah bole smell bau bridezilla dalam diri Makesah. Trus assist the sales girl, mase tu baru start tgk2 lace kat bawah. Ingat nak sponser Prada lace utk bride's maids, apakan daya hajat tak sampai. Prada lace dekat Jakarta pun, mahal !!! They showed me a few kind of lace, since I have 2 kinds to look for. One for the ladies of bride's family, and another colour for the bride's maids.

Bride's maid tu memang ade clear idea la, nak beli ape. Tapi utk mak Makesah tu adalah tricky. Have you met the women who single handily created raised Makesah ?? Haha. No need details, but she's kind of opinionated ☺. Ni tak bole, tu tak lawa. Yang ni better, yg tu berkilat sangat. Haha. So all the fancy2 new design such ah reranting lah, debunga lah, mendaun ke adalah out of the picture. Something decent, but not understated. Kau rase ??

Since mcm dead end kat ground level sebab lace mahal2, so kami terus ke level 2 utk sambung lace hunting. Dorang tak panggil lace, die panggil brokat. So you name it, semi Perancis. Japang. By panel, by meter. Ikut la, budget anda. So di sini lah Makesah terpaksa tukar color palette for reception kerana warna asal adalah almost impossible to comply with. Reason been, nak carik tone blueish/purplish grey utk 3 material yg berbeza adalah kerja gila. Don't go out of your mind ckp, 'xpe, nanti lining bole carik kedai lain. Beli lace dgn tulle dulu'. Itu adalah cubaan bunuh diri. Last2 kau akan end up beli whole new tone dekat kedai lain.

Tips 1: My advice, be flexible. Jgn stuck to one idea. Especially those with difficult to find shades of color mcm mustard, hot pink, olive green, dusty purple and so on. Kalau design kain plain je, cavalli ke cotton then it's fine. But if u wanna match them with lace ke, chiffon ke. It's pretty much imposible, maybe ?? Kalau kau ade duit bole spend 5k beli lace memahal utk family/bride's maid, why not ?? Ade je yg memahal tu to match your unique colour palette.

Tips 2: Adalah sangat mudah utk plan/budget anda berubah berdasarkan komen penjual kain, penjahit baju. Tukang teman gi tempah baju, kazen seblah mak. Ni cerita small scale people who was informed about you getting married, just family and really close friends. Belum masuk former best friends, gepren exboipren dan sebagainya. I'm telling you, one word from people you admire the most can change your plan in 2 seconds.
Contoh: Memang Makesah dah excited level Yahudi about shopping kat Jakarta, dah allocate 1million per meter for the wedding dress. Tetibe designer ckp, "You biar I beli la". Lepas tu kau pun terus diam. Kau akan ambik mase dlm 2menet utk fight your self-denial, lepas tu baru kau bole move on and agree kau bayar designer tu mahal2 biar je lah die beli kain bagai lagi senang keje die & kau juga.
Since reception dress tak ada dlm program perkampungan Jakarta, dekat situ dah save 5mil. Sila lah convert sendiri, tak kuase hakak nak reveal budget baju kawen hakak yg sekian sekian.

That was the first part - the level 2, full of lace. Perancis, Japang bla bla bla I mean. Tips tak ada kene mengena dgn kronologi ini. Just nak insert my opinion while it's relevant. So since the blueish/purplish grey is difficult to find, sebab lace xde kaler tu. Tulle pun mcm tak berapa nak hado. So we start with new colour, try match dgn lining. Then pilih tone lining yg mengancam, then baru your sales assistant akan start potong. Bila dah potong ni, meaning dah final. Bukak bill, then sila lah bayar.

Tips 3: Senaraikan nama segala bride's maids, family member anda. Lepas tu indicate sorang2 nak pakai brape meter. Ade yg cukup 3.5 je, ade yg nak pakai sampai 4.5m. Mcm lace, nak jimat nyer pasal. Bride's maids yg masih single tu hakak bagi 1.5m je, mak2 org hakak bagi 2m kalau tak nanti laki dorang hempuk hakak pakai selipar nengok bini dorang pakai baju kurung moden singkat.
Kate lah bride's maid hakak ade 13, so by logik lining 13x4=52 & lace 13x2=26. Since mostly kain kat sane bnyk lerang 60, 3.5m dah cukup utk normal size Asian so instead just pay utk 46m lining & 21m lace. Paham ?? Kalau lace tu 75,000 rp. pun, kau dah bole save 375,000 rp. Over RM 100 dah, bole gi makan kepiting. Sapo nak bagi ??

Tips 4: Get the agreed price before dorang potong, sebab from the point potong-pack-bil there's no room for negotiation anymore. Kalau korang nak mintak kurang lagi pun, kene bargain on next material/deal. Let say kau rase kau beli bnyk dah ni, 50m. Xkan xbole kurang lagi. Jawapan nya memang tak. After 5mins baru kau nak perasan 100rb tu mahal, convert balik lebih kurang RM 30 gak satu meter. So mase kau beli cotton lagi 24m tu kau tawar lah lagi kaw2 sampai kau rase baloi utk kaver lost previous deal.

Lepas settle bride's maids, Makesah tinggal je minah tu kat level 2 bertungkus lumus potong kain. Lepas tu terjah level 1 sebab memang aim nak beli cotton for gent for both bride's & groom's family. Mase ni Pak Bhim kat level 2 lagi, sebab assist the sales girl. Since mase memilih tu memang ada lah stock kat situ. Tapi bila dah total jadik 46m tu, Pak Bhim kene lah call stor lah, call other branch bagi code semua check ade stock ke tak.

Bila kau jalan sesorang pegi different level, SA lain xkan layan kau. Sebab customer die pun ade je naik atas tadi, tengok2 lace. Who doesn't pegi pegang2 lace bila pegi kedai kain kan ?? So die dah nampak kau dgn Pak Bhim and the girl yg tgh potong kain tu. So die xkan sailang, SA lain akan entertain customer lain, die tak kan layan kau & suruh kau tunggu Pak Bhim.

So jalan2 kat level 1 on first round was useless, kene naik atas balik panggil Pak Bhim. Baru die turun level 1 explain cotton tu kaler lain ade tapi kene ambik kat stor. Referring to the colour cart je, terus agree utk gents side lelaki. Kalau bole nak cotton jugak utk gents side hakak, tapi mcm tak menarik sgt. So ambik cavalli utk all my family members (ladies dgn gents). Same thing I did for the bride's maids, Makesah applied utk family both sides - list kan bape meter nak potong2 bagi kat SA. Tu pun terlupa, kak ngah my future husband baru pregnant. So by the time reception dah 6-7 bulan, sure need extra.

Settle baju family my side, baru turun ground floor again. Ingat nak beli prada lace for my family, this time failed attempt jugak sebab kaler tak masuk. At this point, Pak Bhim je yg follow me. Sebab the SA tak sempat2 potong kain. Dr GF, naik balik pegi tgk semi French kat level 2. Korean/Japanese lace memang cheaper, tapi design xbole lawan French lace. French lace adelah lebih exclusive dan lembut. Since the most reasonable choice for my family was lace by panel, so dorang just pull out and pack.

Then boipren Makesah call, previously mase pilih material for my family. I tried to call him, tapi tak angkat. Sebab cotton dgn cavalli for ladies tu colour in different shades, tapi still in one tone. Tak paham kan ?? Haha. Senang citer baju laki gelap sikit, the ladies in lighter shades. So berlarian lah Makesah dr level 2 turun level 1 balik, semangat nak tunjuk kat boipren. Ok ke tak kalau camtu. Being a man, you know the answer most probably I will get - "bole je".

Don't need to get over dramatic, kind of expected pun. He will answer exactly as it is, but it gives some kind of secure. Relief. To hear that from him. So this next step is important, to me it is. So Makesah collect balik all the papers I wrote and passed dekat SA tu, so I can track back berapa bnyk kain dah potong. Should I remind you, whatever you agreed for them to cut you have to pay.

So I listed down, for bride's maids. Types of material, dgn harga. Then you will know how much you have spent. So lepas kira lace harga sekian, cavalli harga sekian. Cotton sekian ribu, total berapa. So I know how much I had left to spend, baru Makesah agreed pilih kain utk baju nikah. Automatically you can control your budget. So kalau dah tau budget tinggal 1juta, carik la lace dlm range 200rb. Lining lagi, lining plak nak kene matching dgn baju melayu. Nak full lace ke, half lace ke. Plan awal2. Mcm hakak, baju nikah/reception ade option nak hantar kat designer. That's why kain baju nikah jatuh last priority. Settle bride's maids dgn family dulu.

Tips 5: Beads in Indonesia is call payed. So nak carik within budget senang, bagitau je 'tanak payed'

Tips 6: Know your needs, prioritised what's important first. Mcm material utk baju nikah, and baju adik beradik dulu. Abang ipar ke, bakal adik ipar ke. Kalau tak cukup budget bole suruh dorang beli lain utk matching kan laki/bini dorang. Mcm hakak, kire adik-beradik/spouse dulu. Pastu baru consider anak2 buah. Naseb baik bakal anak buah kecik2 lagi.

We're only half way thru, haha. Lupe plak nak bagitau, lepas pilih kain bride's maids. The point when Makesah start pilih material for both sides' family, Makesah dah dismissed team bagi dorang free and easy super long lunch break. Sampai dorang dah bosan tak tahu nak buat ape, patah balik pegi Mumbay Tekstil pun Makesah tak siap2 lagi.

Disebabkan oleh perbezaan waktu (walaupun sebenarnya lebih kurang je) antara Jakarta & Johor Bahru, Makesah tak puase. :D Awal2 masa sampai tu memang pak Bhim suh bagi teh botol siap2. Mase pilih kain utk family tu die dah order kan lunch dah pun. Sebab #teamkawenmakesah tgh jejalan mase dorang ambik order lunch, so dorang nyer makanan lambat sikit. Tu yg xhabis makan, tapau bawak balik bole buat sahur. Hehe

Ok, so kain baju nikah ni Makesah rase baik hati plak hari ni nak share details. Hehe. Latest design memang ade yg sampai 1mil per meter. Lace 2017, you know. 3d, bunga timbul. Sequin, you do the research. Yg 600k pun dah lawa dah actually. Tepuk dada, tanya selera. Sebab hakak ni old pesen sikit, so yg terkenan di hati Makesah tu agak so 2000 late design nya. So it cost 450rb per meter. 450x5 adalah 2.25mil. Kan hakak dah ajar suh cap budget tadi kan ?? So budget adalah 2mil saja, walaupun bole je bayor 250rb tu. Tapi, negotiate. Ini harga lace sahaja, tak masuk lining.

Lining hakak another 80rb per meter, lining agak tebal sebab sekali utk baju melayu boipren I. Memang puas hati, sebab that kind of material hakak penah beli kat Jakel for RM68 per meter. Ni sebab nak kaler ivory punyer pasal. Ade je cheaper lining, ranging 30rb to 45rb. Tapi xdo kaler hakak nak. Haha.

FYI, bridal lace kat ground floor & naik balik level 2 carik lining.

Masa hakak full on bridezilla mood gigih pilih lining baju nikah ni lah pak Bhim paksa makan. So die biarkan lah kami menjamu selera kat level 1, tempat display border lace. Haha, we spend our own sweet time enjoying our lunch. Mase ni lah baru ingat nak reply whatsapp, update gambar pada pihak2 yg terlibat dan sebagainya.

My SA masih lagi sebok potong kain while we're having lunch. Sebab those baru sampai dr store then only she can cut and pack. About half an hour to 40 mins like that she came and check on us, tanya bil nak buat satu je ke nak separate. Even tho satu bil, die tak muat so tetap jadik 2 helai. Tak masuk satu lagi invois sebab Monday baru bole ambik stock kat outlet lain.

Sebab kan satin yg kene tunggu monday tu, so pak Bhim promised to send the materials to my room. So ape lagi, tinggal lah segala material kat kedai sampai Monday. Hiks. BTW, they delivered at zero cost. Yay to me, haha.

So paham tak ape yg cuba hakak sampaikan di sini ?? Haha. Kalau setakat beli kain baju nikah 1.2juta, baju bride's maid 3 pasang. Tu pun satin paling murah, jangan la buat naya kat SA/pak Bhim mintak mcm2. I have this super special treatment sebab the amount I spent. Be rational, beli 3 pasang. Nego mcm nak giler, pastu mintak free gift. Memang mintak kene sumpah k, please jangan buat pangai gitu.

Tips 7: Last but not least, hakak baik hati plak nak share harga pembelian by meter (reasonable pada sekitar June 2017):

Bride's Maid
Satin - 17k per meter
Tulle - 10k per meter
Semi Perancis/Prada - 100k per meter

Bride's Family (Ladies)
Cavalli - 28k per meter
Perancis (Panel - 2.5m) - 280k per panel

Bride's Family (Gents)
Cavalli - 28k per meter

Groom's Family (Ladies)
Cavalli - 28k per meter
Lace (Tanah Abang) - 100k per meter

Groom's Family (Gents)
Cotton - 38k per meter

Ingin hakak ingatkan sekali lagi, ini adalah price hakak utk sekian bnyk nyer org hakak beli kan kain. Over 200 meters of mixed material, last year pun hakak tak dapat harga cotton mcm tu. Last year hakak beli 2-3 org punya baju cotton was 50-60rb per meter. 

Tips 8: Orang tua2 selalu cakap, ukur baju di badan sendiri. Yg ni memang 100% betul, sebab yang kawen tu adalah kau dan bukan lah mak kau mahupun kawan sekolah mereka. Tak penah lagi la org ckp, ukur lebar mahupun tebal poket bawah baju melayu abah kau. Org bole ckp, beli lah chiffon. Cantik kain die, berat. Beza 10rb je, tapi beza 10rb tu bila dah 30 meter dah 100 ringgit okay. Tu baru satu material, lining lagi. Buat nyer kau budget2 20k, tapi kaler takde. Yg ade kaler cavalli je, pastu SA bagi kau price 30k tak nak turun dah. 

Hakak agree ambik lace bride's maids sampai 100k tu pun sebab total jadik still within budget. Originally allocate 50k je semeter utk lace bride's maids, 20k per meter for chiffon & 30k per meter for cavalli. Tulle to replace chiffon tu end up same amount 40k, instead of cavalli hakak ambik satin. So for 3.5 meter just cost 59.5k instead of 112k for 4 meter cavalli.

Yg paling penting skali ialah utk well planned your trip. Ketahui limit budget anda, jangan sampai gi Jakarta tapi memeruk duk dlm bilik makan pop mee sebab nak makan soto ayam pun budget tak cukup. Lepas tu kalau setakat nak beli 10 pasang tu, agak tak berbaloi nak gi Jakarta semata2. Or else, you can arrange a day trip kalau nak jimat. Subuh2 naik flight, landing je lincah gi Pasar Mayestik. Malam ambik flight balik. Total damaged 1k include flight ticket, dapat material much better than package rm1200 kat Jakel.

And last but not least, kene consider total luggage weight utk bawak balik barangan anda. Kalau tak nanti nangis lah dik, kotak kene tinggal kat Jakarta sebab dah tak bole nak check in. Hari tu hakak nyer kotak 20 kilo nyaris2 ditinggalkan begitu saje kat airport. Naseb critical thinking skill masih berfungsi dengan baik di saat terkejar2 buka puasa & boarding around 8 pm. Last2 tak jadik terbang, haha. Yang tu lain kali lah hakak cerita, masa sangat mencemburui ni.

Tips 9: Jangan turun KLIA opsss

Padang Trip - 'The' Shopping

As mentioned in my previous post, korang gi Padang carik kain sulam and telekung. Murah kate nyer, and please be aware that post ini adalah untuk kondem satu kedai made famous by a Malaysian blog. And that only one shop. Kalau korang Google 'kain sulam Bukittinggi Padang', this particular shop is most famous search result. And maybe because of that they are playing this price game, price semua displayed in RM okay. How bad it was ?? Enuf to made me made up my mind not to return to this city again.

Actually, my trip here to Padang is only for research. Nak survey harga, since my last trip to Jakarta they told me all those materials came in from Bukittinggi. I went to Pasar Atas first, but the price was ridiculous. Same shit, bukak harga 250k. When I said, ni kat Tanah Abang baru 200. Yg bukak harga 400k pun bole terus turun 200 lah. 

But this one guy dekat Pasar Atas offer a reasonable price. You should try check his booth. And this is definitely not the only shop I wanna condemn, this is the one I recommended.



So upon my failed hunting at Pasar Atas, I directly hire a cab to the most famous emboidery shop in Bukittinggi - Putri Minang. Determined to made my trip worth, I must go to these kind of individual shops. Since all the pasar's are too mainstream. 

So first I aim for kain sulam, and their price is beyond ridiculous. Lagi tak masuk akal dari Pasar Atas. Those old designs, aku dah beli dari 2011 they're selling for almost the same price I bought in Malaysia. Because of the ridiculous price, I just walk off the kain sulam area and went for telekung lah. And it was handled by 2 different girls both kain sulam and telekung, maybe you will know where I'm heading with this. 

When the kain sulam girl saw my selected items dah juta2, die bole dtg eh. Siap bawak contoh, 'kain sulam tak nak ke kak' ?? And again, I said NO NO NO. She tried to reduce the price. But still, lost my interest since the design was outdated. That's not the worst part.

So, during tawar menawar. The sales girl mcm biase la, 'akak ambik tiga saya bagi 280'. Aku bukan ambik 3 ok, aku ambik 5. Sampai kaunter, tokey tulis 330. Actually die nak kira in RM. I just say 'No, rupiah'. Then for another type, she said it's 39ringgit. He charged me 130k per piece, mintak 120 pun die tanak bagi. Actually it's not even 129k kalau convert, but that shop memang beyond limit. To that extend aku ckp kat mamat tulis receipt kat kaunter tu, 'just do whatever you want'. Argument was just waste of time at this point.

I was so mad, sampai aku campak lah duit tu. And you know what ?? Die bole nak bagi aku diskaun 50k. I seriously tell him this to his face, "No, I don't want your 50k. Take it". And I walked out. Sampai hotel driver taxi pun xberani nak paw because he saw me pissed earlier. This is not 'tabur pasir' dlm periuk nasik sesiapa, please. This is about 'customer always right', which in Putri Minang means 'customer have no rights'. 

So please, Putri Minang is not a best place to shop in Bukittinggi. I might be wrong, if you have a different experience please share your comment. So readers can justify. If you ask me ?? I will never retun back to this city. Seriously the price in Bandung is way cheaper. I requested the driver to take me back to the hotel, actually I wanted to go to Pasar Aur Kuning. But trust me, I had bad experience in 2 places. Why should I go to the third one.

Btw, the cab cost me 200k return. Siap tunggu la. That's why I advice you to take the private cab during the transfer from airport if you come in group. So you don't have to pay more for transportation because the individual shops are located half way from Padang Panjang to Bukittinggi. Jam Gadang & Pasar Atas is a walking distance within the Bukittinggi proximity. 

In my opinion, always compare the price they offered dgn range of price in Malaysia. Kalau kain sulam kat Malaysia bole beli RM80, buat ape susah2 pegi Padang for 250k ?? Same goes for the telekung, sampai 330k. Kat Malaysia pun bole dapat yg cantik RM180, tu harga Jalan TAR time raya kot.

And one more thing, they claimed the telekung 'Siti Khadijah'. I was imagining it was rejected batch of Siti Khadijah. Rupe nyer die copy Siti Khadijah punya head style so tak payah pakai anak tudung bagai, but with their design of embroidery and choice of material. 

Please share with me in the comment if you have a different experience. 


Padang Trip - Airport Transfer

Padang to Bukittinggi

Seperti yang digembar-gemburkan dalam internet & blog fashion, Bukittinggi Indonesia is sensational for their fine embroidery works particularly for kain pasang dan telekung. Makanya, berduyun2 lah umat Malaysia menyimpan angan dan impian untuk menjejakkan kaki ke bumi yg majoritinya Islam ini. Here's some travel tips for those who still living the dream, like the locals always said 'biar aman mbak'.

Upon arriving at the airport, just like other airports across Indonesia especially those already famous for tourist attraction just like Bali & Lombok. They are full of con men, wether the airport transfer of all kind - shared/private transfer or the boat transfer. They will be some local guys who will get commissions for getting customers for the drivers.

In my case, I was directed to the standard shared airport transfer and offered 60k for the transfer. Somehow the guy at the counter adviced me to go for a private taxi for 400k, reason being - "taksi nya langsung ke hotel mbak, kalau transfer nya lagi berhenti di bandar". So be firm, knows the option that serve best for your trip. Kalau pegi 3org tu, better ambik private cab je. Since they will bring you straight to shopping places, request pun bole. "Nanti nyinggah di kedai ini ya pak, kemudian ke sini". They will take you for lunch definitely, at your own cost of course 😆

When I said no to the private taxi, some other guy directly offered shared transfer for 75k and I immediately said yes. Kau ckp 'ok' je, they will grab your bag and tarik pegi kete which mostly will be couple hundreds meter away. So otw there, die ckp beg kau besar la. Bayar dua seat lah. Knowing these kind of things happened very often all around Indonesia, I strictly say "NO, 100k aja". And trust me, that is not rude at all. It was a negotiation 😆. 

Somehow, the driver buat muka. Suh tambah lagi 20k, jauh lah. Jem lah. So I was generous, since I just arrived at the airport. Bagi lah, 7ringgit je kot. So total damage for my airport transfer today is 120k, feeling dah worth it abis la tu. Sekali sampai hotel, I asked them to arrange for my transfer to the airport tomorrow afternoon and guess what ?? It will only cost me 80k.

Moral of the story: get to know roughly how much the airport tranfer will cost, it's better to book online or together with the hotel booking. And please, jangan nak berkira sangat beza 7ringgit.

Kbye

Another Weird Dream

Not that weird actually, I saw my so called very recent ex doing his other gf ... Slightly before that he was with me ... So the moment I woke up, bukak insta and saw something about forgiveness ... But I refused, because I think he's being so mean ... Almost cost me another job, cut down all my connections ... My friends, my activities was all in a controlled numbers the moment I start spending time with him ...

So I was looking for a title that will match the situation, A Weird Dream catch my attention ... Really huh ?? Reading it back made me mad at myself ... Just like 2 years ago, I let things interrupt my career ... The exact word - 'Even when I'm barely knew them, then they ended up messing my work' ... And as far as I'm concerned, my work is the only thing I cared about ... Besides my family, and I do keep my job/get a better one to make them happy ...

Boifren ?? That is somebody I toss away in every 6 weeks ... At average, haih ... Often when it happened, I'll play victim ... We broke up on Tuesday, I go chop of my hair on Thursday ... On Friday, I got the urge to buy 'Why Men Marry Bitches' ... The first chapter already upsets me, masuk second chapter I'm already became annoyed ... Motif ?? It describe women mcm powerless, too stupid and only thinks about getting married ...

Every single thing the writer wrote about things girls do wrong, is actually what my ex been doing for the past 6 weeks ... He talks about commitment, he talks about 'my' biological clock ... He even talks about marriage, while I'm just there enjoying my freedom from my previous relationship ... Which traumatized enough, even when it's over its still haunting me ... And darling, that 5th June I mentioned, was figured out before you were considered ... You're just there filling the spot ...

This might sound like a cocky post to boast up my ego, but to me it's just a post to muhasabah diri ... This is what I've been doing since day one, I put myself down to be at their level ... Make them feel even, while I always have more than everyone else ... Yes, maybe I'm not as rich ... But I'm lot better in so many ways ... Education level, family ties ... My family can accommodate me anytime needed ... I live in the heart of damansara, not because my family is rich ... I have a lovely aunt who gave me a room, so I don't have to rent a room in Kampung Baru ...

I got a car which I accidently bought in 2013, at least that what I've been telling people about my imported car all these while ... Truth is ?? The hell bitch, I can freaking afford that ... My loan got approved at 1st try, no guarantor ... So why do I have to low down myself for anybody else's satisfaction ?? You have problem with my achievement ?? You gotta work bitch ... And guys, please go deal with your ego somewhere else ...

I will never put down any of my previous post upon someone else's order, that's my memory ... So its up to me if I wanna put it down, in the case of Amirul Haqim - I left my insta account on his phone ... So I can't argue on the outcome ... For now, if you can't deal with it ... Just walk away ... But I bet this is not you league anyway ... Something might just be lost in translation 😊

As I mentioned in my instagram, 'it doesn't matter how far we can go, knowing you is a blessing' ... It is blessing, now that I can finally stand up for myself ... Eliminates all the negative influences, making my life better for no one but myself ... And I'm just not the type who trash my ex, address them jantan tak guna whatsoever ... If they do me wrong, I learn from that ... If I do them wrong ?? Yeah, it's my bad ?? Hehe ... No regrets, there's nothing to loose ...

So what's the point of saying things out publicly ?? To make myself feel better ?? Not really, I wanna stop being so mean ... It is all my game since day one, as I mentioned earlier - I play victim ... The power is all on me, he's the one needed my attention ... That's why I left him two weeks ago ... Took all my things out ... Because I have all the right to choose ... Then I choose to left him again on Tuesday ... Then I gave him a taste of what my life have been without him on Saturday,  then I crushed him again on Sunday ...

Why ?? I can handle everything well ... I can deal with the fact he's out with the other gf watching movie, and salam cium tangan before I left ... But the other gf ?? I crushed her in less than 2hrs with my public instagram profile ... Because the power is all in my hand, I know how powerful my personality are ... And I know how crazy she went over social media ... For that I'm sorry ... I'm truly sorry, for her ...

I can move on at any time, I can move on on Thursday ... I can be completely move on on Saturday ... But I choose to bully them, I do one thing ... And she follows thru as I planned ... So I'm going to stop now ... Stop being so mean, because my pain is nothing compares to hers ... I can find another him, I can find someone better from him ... Whatever we did was hurtful enough, so I'll end everything here ...

So I blocked them both from seeing my pictures ... I hope it helped her stop the pain ...

Journey of bakebyheart: Blood, Sweat & Tears

Most of you might already knew that I have a good hand in baking, cupcakes is my specialty ... An engineer by profession, baking is my hobby ... I'm passionate about both, construction makes me excited about the future ... How it's going to be in 10 years, thrilled about learning new things ... New construction methods & new development projects around the country ... Baking made me happy when I deliver good food to people around me ... Amirul will be doped whenever I send him a box of cupcakes, my little brother can finish 10 pieces from a batch I bake ... & of course my tray/tupperware licin bile bawak pegi office ... That will make me happy by end of the day walaupun xtido tunggu the batter to be finish baked ...

I got this idea when I first visit my friend's booth for KL Calling at Rasta TTDI one fine Sunday ... The concept was - extra activity on weekends, which is baking & start being rich ... So I spent 1k ++ of my salary on May on ingredients for hundreds of cupcakes ... That includes the fee I paid to join the weekend bazaar by sohobazaar ... Please do, follow them kalau anda mahu berjinak2 dgn dunia perniagaan ... Reason been - mostly kite bukan lah anak tan sri yg bole campak 20k over Sunday morning chit chat dgn pesanan, "Nah, gi buat modal meniaga ... Bisness elok2, xcukup bagitau" ...

I baked over 200 cupcakes excitedly for my 1st project ... 1st day, syahdu ... Tade org dtg, vendors lain ckp sebab cuti skolah ... Org tade kat KL ... 2nd day xputus harapan lagi, baked another 2batches of carrot cupcakes ... Result - lagi syahdu dr day 1 ... But adik cherry bagi support, quote "Try, try & try again" ... Then I joined another weekend bazaar in June, same jugak end result die ... Syahdu ... Tahap ape kesyahduan itu ?? Modal tapak pun xdpt balik - yes, that's true ... Base on true story, bukan fiction ...

Kalau korang tanye my opinion, I'll say buat research before you jump into anything ... Research the market place, research the organiser ... Do ask vendors ni, how was the crowd ... How much they're willing to spend, some vendors xkisah to share how much they can get over the weekend ... So just ask, you will never know unless u try ... Bukan lah nak kondem organiser, but masing2 jage periuk nasik masing2 ... Kalau awak rugi, that's totally ur problem ... So check ur organiser, bape banyak die punyer followers ... That's very important sebab nak tarik crowd, nak tau how powerful they are in making people come to their event ...

For example, biler dorang buat event carboot sale kat Istana Negara ... Ade Nora Danish bagai turun 'sendiri' jual karipap ... Itu prove organizer tu power bole convinced Nora Danish jual karipap kat event die ... Bukan acah2 promote artis ini dan itu will be there dekat ur event ... Tapi instagram clearly updet artis tersebut kat oversea, & hanya makcik die dtg tunggu booth ... Jgn tipu vendors dan ur followers begitu ... Xbaik ... Confusing people with insufficient information ...

I'm not saying that instagram followers xmembantu ape2, but work the math with me guys ... Example - awak nak beli baju ala2 padini inspired ni online ... Online rm40 + sepuluh ringgit delivery ... Awak duduk sungai buloh ... Tibe2 this weekend vendor tu join bazaar kat The Strand, Kota Damansara ... Sila pilih antara dua jawapan di bawah utk most likely conversation antara anda dan yg tersayang pagi2 buta hari sabtu itu:
A: "B, kite pegi the strand lah ... I nak beli baju yg I tunjuk kat u dlm insta smalam"
B: "Sayang kite pegi Curve je lah senang, I nak beli karipap ikea pastu kite gi tgk wayang" ... Dgn pantas anda jawap ok ...
*B seharus nya panggilan kepada c bf, & sayang itu adalah anda - perempuan literally ~

Paham tak ape yg cuba saya sampai kan ?? Or I lost you in the above paragraph ?? Hehe ... My point is - bazaar bukan lah pilihan ideal utk golongan muda remaja meluangkan masa bersama rakan sebaya di hujung minggu ... It's always cheer me up when I can put together a proper malay sentence dramatically, lol ... Sila relate kepada pesanan saya dlm paragraph ke-empat tadi ... Research your target market ... Location bazaar adalah crucial & credibility organiser anda penting utk draw people to your location xkesah ceruk mana pun ia ...

Penah satu hari ni, sebijik cupcakes pun xjual ... Itu sgt lah menduka cita kan, because it's not about the money ... Tapi anda akan down, sebab penat dtg setup bagai ... Like for me, frust wooo satu mlm tak tido godek cupcakes ... Sebab tu before pegi bazaar, pegi makan nasik lemak kat the village park ... So when I went back tired in the afternoon, ade one thing to cherish by the end of the day ...

I'm broke like hell now, but no regret ... I will never know if I never try, I won't be able to share this with you guys if I'm not willing to take the risk ... Rite now still have the courage to fight, lepas raye ni sambung berjuang ... Tapi expectation will be different, no more trays & boxes of cupcakes ... Each flavor will bake 1batch only ... I'll bait for bigger fish ... Go large on marketing & advertising, not expecting the crowd to buy boxes of cupcakes ... But to order later, bigger amount of course ...

This is my journey, even makan nasik dgn sayur & kentang everyday sebab takut tak cukup duit for chicken or ikan kicap ... Even kene jerit, "brape sen lah untung u buat cupcakes", even people call you riak for having dream ... This is my baby, yg rugi itu saya ... Yang sampai rumah 8pm sebab takde duit nak bayar toll itu saya ... Yg tak servis itu kereta saya, so be it ... I don't mind if u walk away from me now, kalau awak nak ludah muka saya sekali pun ... Saya harap kalau Tuhan mudah kan jalan saya satu hari nanti, & hopefully saya tak lupa dr mana semua tu dtg ...

I'll be sharing my experience from time to time, for you out there - if u're passionate about something, break a leg ... Take the risk, but don't forget to be smart ... A friend I know recently spent 30k on his business, maybe there have to be another 29 months suffering for me ... May Allah bless me thru the way, insyaAllah ...
