Majlis Gunting Rambut Dg. Arissa Faizah Bt. Abdul Faisal

1st October 2011 ~ I'm living on a jet plane, don't know when I'll be back again.. lalalala.. My husband and I are on that familiar routine again of jumping on & off the plane for meetings, conferences & workshops. Sigh!

Just last week he left me for a week and come next week I'll be leaving him for another week to attend this meeting for validating the final exam questions in KL. So we only have this weekend for some couple time and how do we spend it?? With baking of course! Hahahaha and loving every second of it.

Customers have been enquiring for the updates on their previous orders.. alamak.. habislah I! Anyone interested in becoming my PA?? I'll pay you with cupcakes.. lots of 'em! Am 'guling-guling' now.. err.. HELP!

Ok Ren of KK had ordered 100pcs of our Vanilla Butter Fancy Cookies along with 10nos of our promo chocolate moist cake. All for baby Arissa, whose name was written on the cookies. She requested for flower & butterfly designs with pink and green as the main colors for the royal icing.

I need to membebel a bit on fancy cookies. Some of you out there may not understand why oh why are these cookies a bit on the pricey side. We are using butter for the cookies & most importantly, the piping for each cookie is very time consuming compared to doing a cupcake. But the result.. walla! ..and they taste delicious as well.

Wait for more updates on some of our latest orders for fancy cookies which I'll have to say are becoming more popular now as doorgifts for weddings, engagements or just any other occasions.

I need a vacation!

Happy Birthday to My Mak Tam!

"A little thought and a little kindness are often worth more than a great deal of money."
~John Ruskin

24th September 2012 ~ My Mak Tam is like my second mom. She's my mom's younger sister and she has always been there for me through thick & thin ever since I could remember.

We are a very close-knit family. I even stayed with my Mak Tam & my uncle daddy for almost a year when I first started working and still single hehehehe... all in the name of 'extra protection', or at least according to my parents.

So last September, last year on the 24th to be exact, I made a birthday cake for her. Her fave, chocolate moist with chocolate ganache. It was meant to surprise her actually but I wasn't there. Had to look after dad. So, my other aunts & uncles celebrated with her on behalf instead.

Nevertheless, I would like to take this opportunity to thank my Mak Tam & Uncle Daddy, for being two of the kindest people I've known all my life, for always being there for me & my family, for the abundance of love they have for everyone around them. Hanya Allah yang dapat membalas segala jasa-jasa dan budi baik Mak Tam & Uncle Daddy. Hugs & kisses!!

Happy 2nd Birthday Sara!

24th September 2012 ~ Sara's my ex uni-mate, Jee's darling daughter. This was her 2nd time ordering from me. The first was a cheesecake on their anniversary.

Jee had ordered 25pcs of chocolate moist cupcakes with chocolate ganache topping & fondant deco.

We went all the way to Kinarut, Papar to deliver the cupcakes and I ended up for hours at Jee's place chit-chatting with the lovely mommy of two. Hehehehe.. reminiscing old time & a lot of catching ups.

Had to go back though coz it was already late plus the long drive back home. Next time Jee. Anyway thank you so much for the order. I really appreciate your support laling!

We had a reunion dinner recently with IIUM Alumni of Sabah, at Lembah Impian Country Home Resort somewhere in Penampang area. I was the emcee for the night hehehe.. I think it's about time to appoint a manager I guess hahahaha! PERASAN!

It was a warmth and nice atmosphere meeting & catching up with friends whom I've not seen over the years. All are doing very well indeed yet humility & respects are maintained. Things changed but the friendship remains. Adios!

Oh ya by the way, you may check out this resort coz it's worth a vacation or two hehehe.. It offers a cozy and country-like ambience. Originally, it used to be a family residence sprawled over 8-acres of landscaped garden. Well, I won't say much anymore, visit their website and experience it yourself. Adios amigos againnn!!

Our Utmost Appreciation for All Raya 2011 Orders

30th August 2011 ~ I know.. I know.. it's almost another round of fasting month & Aidilfitri.. hehehehe but hey! It's never too late to say thank you either right??!

2011 was our 2nd raya at Simply Chantique CupCakery. We offered several different types of raya cookies along with our promo chocolate moist cakes and my oh my.. we thought the oven would burst!

Hehehehe.. the best seller was of course our Snowy Heart cookies, followed by the usual suspects Almond London, Makmur, Ulat Bulu, Pineapple tart, Suji Crystal, Choc Nutingales, Cheese Tart & Nestum Fruity. All of these were guilty as charged } of almost ruining our oven & almost making us crawl on four limbs for weeks as well as putting us to sleep the whole day after finishing up the orders. Hahahaha! You naughty cookies!

Thanks to all our customers, both new ones as well as our loyal ones. Errr... see you again this year during fasting month perhaps? With more innovative & delectable raya cookies. Chiow!
