16 March 2012 ~ Alhamdulillah.. Simply Chantique CupCakery was chosen to be part of this auspicious & grand event which was graced by Tuan Yang Terutama Tun Datuk Seri Panglima Haji Juhar Haji Mahiruddin, the Yang Dipertua Negeri Sabah, and wife, Yang Amat Berbahagia Toh Puan Datin Seri Panglima Hajah Norlidah Datuk R.M Jasni.
We would like to convey our utmost appreciation to Mr. Abdul Razak Egoh, the CEO of Ascot Academy, Kota Kinabalu, Sabah for trusting us with the task in preparing the door gifts for the guests as well as for the VVIPs.
A BIG hug & thanks for Mrs Abdul Razak Egoh, my dear friend Ana for recommending us, a humble small home-based CupCakery for such a big event. Muuuaaahhhhh! One sloppy wet kiss for you & for Yasmine hehehehe...
So we were commissioned to do 180pcs of cupcakes, 20pcs of which were for the VVIPs.. aha! I had to render the help & support of all the inspiration & creativity I could manage. Alhamdulillah, despite the hiccup on the stockists' part, we managed to find better replacements even though they were more pricey but mak senang hati gitewwww...
Macam nak meraung when the stockists informed that they didn't have enough of the glass stands that we had initially agreed upon. We settled for the bird's cages instead. The 20pcs of cupcakes for the VVIPs were safely 'caged' hopefully they all behaved.
As for the remaining 160pcs for the other guests, the cupcakes were individually boxed & dolled up in lilac ribbons & silver cupcake liners, the theme for the night.. gorgeously elegant.
Thank you so much for the lovely opportunity given. Hopefully there will be more in the future insyaAllah.
Emerald green & peach are in this year.. hehehe.. a very strong confident color as opposed to a more subdued one. Both are equally classic & romantic. What's with the sudden change of topic on colors here?? Will share with you my beloved readers on the countdown to our special day soon...
As for the time being, I leave you with a sneak peak. Cukup lah dulu kan... hehehe.. Til then.. hugs & kisses!

14 March 2012 ~ Another order by yet another regular customer of mine; Haniza of Taman Ria. Sadly, she had transferred back to West Malaysia recently. All the best Hani!
This time around she had ordered a kilo of carrot walnut cake frosted with cream cheese and 24pcs of chocolate moist cupcakes topped with edible images of the ever so angry birds.
Thank you so much dear Hani. I really appreciate your support all this while. Isk.. isk.. sedeyhhh la pulok. Do keep in touch ya.
Now for those who've been wondering, what happened to Tisya?? I received text messages & emails inquiring on why I haven't updated anything on my blog. Ini pun buat terharu jugak weyhhh...
Well.. as what I'd updated, I just lost my dear father recently. So it's only right to put some of the things on hold as my mark of respect. No speculations please! No no no... hehehehe..
Furthermore.. I'm in the midst of preparing for something very close to my heart.. A journey that has tested the best & the worst of me. The countdown has begun.. InsyaAllah I will update you my lovely readers on this. Chapter 1 ~ page 1.. come April.
Pray for nothing but the best.. for ourselves, for our loved ones and even for strangers. InsyaAllah, Allah listens. He works in a mysterious way. You may not be rewarded instantly but be patient. Be thankful with what we have, while we still have.
No. I'm not perfect. I've never once said I am. So are you. The mirror has two faces. There are definite reasons to every test by Allah. One thing for sure, it's either making us better.. or worse than before.
Okay am signing off now. I still miss all of you though. Will update more soon. Kesian my customers have to wait long for updates on their previous orders. For the silent readers, keep up the support! Hehehe...

14 March 2012 ~ Ana was one of my earliest customers when I first ventured into this wonderful Simply Chantique journey. She has been a regular ever since & most importantly a dear friend.
This 1.5kg of chocolate moist cake with chocolate ganache was meant for her adorable daughter; Yasmine's 3rd birthday. Isn't she a cutie pie??
Thank you so much Ana for your continuous support. I really appreciate it. In fact, I'm touched by the unexpected support that has been given by some of our customers turned friends. Came just at the right moment & time..
I've gone through so much recently.. and I'll have to say I've never experienced so much pain, frustration, anger & not forgetting joy, happiness, love, adoration & admiration. To sum it all up; MIRACLES do happen. Alhamdulillah.. praise to Allah.
What can I say.. for all the hardships and endless tests, nothing beats Allah's love. For the strength & perseverance that You've bestowed upon me.. upon us.. I thank You, Allah. The Most Merciful & Compassionate. I solemnly thank You.
Til then, take care love!
