"Wonderful" start

I am officially the greatest genius the world has ever witnessed because I travel all the way from cheras to desa pandan without bringing the keys to my apartment. Now I'm stuck here outside of my house waiting to be rescued by my brother whose bringing me the keys. Just great. Luckily I get the internet connection from my house and my hour won't just be wasted doing nothing. So to cheer myself up, I'm gonna share some pictures of my beautiful cakes that I am so proud of. I want all of you to know that I put so much effort in making your cakes and making sure its beautiful and just knowing that you guys love it and how it makes your special occassion even more meaningful is enough to make my day..

Oh along dah sampai! cepatnye! yay!

More cakes and new space part 2

Gooooood Morning! I'm up early today. Got lots of things to do. For those who have been waiting for my reply on quotations etc, sorry to keep you waiting but I will reply all of you today insyallah.. Here are some of our latest cake projects before I tell you guys more about the new space..

Took some pictures at Sofia's house. Cantik kan?
Sofia's engagement "mini" pelamin. very pretty.

So remember last week I told you about our home improvement project? We revamped our old vacant apartment so that we could use it as our new workspace. Let's look at the before and after pictures..

1)Living Room: The marble floors were polished and the walls are given a new coat of paint. I chose light yellow because I wanted the room to have a bright feel and also because I'm so bored of white walls. Also, we changed the old light fixtures. The dining area gets a slightly more fancy light and I actually had it lowered another 5 inches than in the picture. oh and also we painted all the doors white including the main door which was changed into a new solid wood door.


2) Bedroom 1: This is the room beside the master bedroom. All the rooms are given a fresh coat of paint and the parquet was changed to tiles. Also, the window frames were change to new metal frames and the light fixture is also new. This room will be the office/bedroom.
After (note the funky light and excuse the messy furniture)
3) Master Bedroom: Same thing was done with the master bedroom. new floors, new paint and new window frames.

4) Bedroom 2: Also the same thing for bedroom 2. new floors, new paint and new window frames.

5) Kitchen & bathroom: This has got to be the best makeover in the whole house. The kitchen was in the worst condition and now its pretty and sparkly and the layout is more practical. The kitchen used to have a door (you can't see it in any of the pictures,its on the left side.) which was actually beside the front door, but we had it closed to give more space.


The bathroom are given new plastic sliding doors so they don't eat up space and since they're plastic, they last longer and are easier to clean and maintained.

We added the shower head. Before this, the bathroom had a big water container (kolah air. heh.) which took up a lot of space. Now it feels bigger. We added simple, inexpensive bathroom accessories from Ikea.
After after.
We've now added more furnitures and decorations to the space and I've already started doing my cake deco work there. I'll update more pictures later.. =)

New cakes and New space part 1

Hey there folks! How u doinnn..

Sorry for the delay on updates. Been busy juggling cake orders and also filling up our new space. Yupp, that's right, our new workspace. Before I tell you more about that, let me just show you some of the cakes that we have done..

Love the deep purple colour

My mum has an old apartment somewhere in KL. We used to live there when I was small. I was still in kindy at that time. Then after we moved my aunt rented it from us and after she moved out, my cousin and her husband did. And after that, the house was empty for quite a long time, until just recently. I managed to convince my parents to fix up the place so that I could turn it into my office/workspace/humble abode (heh) rather than let the space go to waste. And boy did it need a lot of fixing..Please bear in mind that this is just a medium cost walk-up apartment unit, and not some fancy schmancy one. I still loved the place for one because its so near to shops and a lot of amenities and also because it's so near to the town center. These 'before' pics are a bit low res coz I took it with my handphone camera.

So, as you walk in this would be the first thing that you'll see, the living room. With some furnitures in it still. And they are the original furnitures from when we stayed here in the 90's..

Some are still in good condition, like those dining chairs. The table however, was not..

This is the master bedroom. Nothing fancy. Remember I told you this is a really old, medium cost apartment. So there isn't an attached bathroom..

 This is the second room. Back in the days, this was me and my brother's room..

And this is the smallest room. Its next to bathroom, so as you can see on the left wall, the water has seeped through..

The parquet flooring is old and dull and some have even come off..

The worst part of the house that needed the most fixing was the kitchen and the bathroom. For some reason, when I first came into the house after a long time, I saw that there was leakage in the kitchen..
