Eid Mubarak - Selamat Hari Raya

It will be end end of Ramadhan, end of fasting month end of this week. Back when i was still in Malaysia, Ramadhan was a month full of activities, where my crafting session goes full swing, when i would exhaused myself and had little sleep, where i can loose a few kilos, it is when i work my heart and soul out and give my outmost 200% effort. (i only have these pictures to share, the rest are back at home).

Ramadhan is still very special to me, eventhough i no longer go full swing doing my hampers. my priorities have now changed and my Ramadhan now has a different meaning. i miss it, of course, every bit of it. and i hope i can resume back to it one day.

I've made lots of friends during my past Ramadhans. presentations to major companies, buying my materials from the suppliers, meeting other competitors - most of them are meaningful people. one person who will remain close in my heart is K.Liza, of Lubis House, whom i share my passion with back then. and another is Toughcookie, whom i met in 2005, at her office, doing a presentation for my Raya Hampers and up till now, we still keep in touch (and thanks for compiling my recipes!).

We have had a good Ramadhan this year, yet again. no hampers, but lots of cooking in the kitchen. and besides, there's quite a number of birthdays this month! so i shall put my effort into those birthdays instead.


To you my friends, loyal readers of my blog, here's me (picture taken on Ramadhan 2005 just before moving to the netherlands, with my last batch of hampers going out) wishing you many thanks and hope you'll enjoy your Eid, wherever you are.

Selamat Hari Raya Aidilfitri

Maaf Zahir & Batin

Love your hampers! You're such a natural. :)

Anyhow, regarding K. Liza of Lubis House, I once went to her place in Bangsar, scouring for materials and ideas for my wedding. She's quite friendly and helpful...
