Wedding Wedding and Wedding

Phew! 2 weddings in a day, skipped 2 more, two of which in Kuantan.
I have this thinking on quitting my 9-5 job and become a wedding planner, a profession I've always dream of (besides jadi cikgu music, pemilik bakery and cake house, pemilik butik baju, pengusaha rumah kebajikan kucing).
Don't you know that "Piscesans are dreamers"?

It was hella fun driving to the wedding with these 3 hot Mamas.
Hot Mama!

Donut Talk

Have you heard ? that... Krispy Kreme is coming to town!!
Few years back, we hadn't much choice except to adore the one and only Dunkin Donut but now days, we have Big Apple, JCo, donut-donut kat bakery, just to name a few. Whatever it is, I am so glad they have Big Apple Donut in Seremban, which is only 5 mins from my place. So when ever I am feeling blue, I know where can I go for cure. And I still love Tuna Wholemeal from Dunkin Donut though.
Sasa and I wish that KLCC would have at least one Big Apple/JCo/Krispy Kreme, a place for us to gossip and destress during lunch.

To zz,
When? - Next year, Where? - KL

The worldfamousKrispy Kreme Doughnut stores will soon be opening their doors in Malaysia.

This follows the signing of a development agreement between Berjaya Corporation Bhd (BCorporation) and Krispy Kreme Doughnuts Inc on Aug 8.

BCorporation through its 70% owned subsidiary Berjaya Krispy Kreme Doughnuts Sdn Bhd was granted the rights to develop and operate Krispy Kreme stores in Malaysia by Krispy Kreme Doughnut Corporation, a wholly owned subsidiary of Krispy Kreme Doughnuts Inc.

BKK plans to open 20 Krispy Kreme stores in Malaysia within the next five years. The first outlet is scheduled to be opened Kuala Lumpur early next year.

More outlets will be opened in the Klang Valley followed by other major cities and towns in Malaysia. BCorporation is well known for developing and operating famous international food and beverage brands. It currently holds the franchise for Starbucks Coffee, Kenny Rogers Roasters and Wendy’s.

In June this year, BCorporation acquired the Papa John’s pizza franchise.

BCorporation chairman and CEO Tan Sri Vincent Tan said the addition of Krispy Kreme will strategically complement and widen his company’s existing food and beverage operations.

“We are delighted to enter into a franchise relationship with Krispy Kreme and be part of its international expansion in Asia,” he said.

“Krispy Kreme is very popular in Japan, South Korea and the Philippines and we expect Krispy Kreme to do well in Malaysia as well,” he added..

Krispy Kreme doughnuts, made from a secret recipe since 1937, appeal to people from all walks of life. Its signature hot Original Glazed® doughnut allows one to have a “melt in the mouth” experience. There are approximately 490 Krispy Kreme stores in the United States, Australia, Canada, Hongkong, Indonesia, Japan, Kuwait, Mexico, the Philippines, South Korea, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, United Arab Emirates and the United Kingdom.

Meanwhile, Jeff Welch, the senior vice-president and general manager of Global Franchise Operations and Development for Krispy Kreme said it was an exciting opportunity to have a QSR franchisee like BCorporation introduce Krispy Kreme in Malaysia.

“BCorporation has significant franchise experience in Malaysia, and we look forward to working with them to share a one-of-a-kind Krispy Kreme experience with consumers in Malaysia there,” he said.

Happy Birthday Kak Ogy

She is the lucky 8 girl! This girl was born on 8 August 1978, memang banyak ong lah this year. Happy Birthday Kak Ogy. You are now 30 years old! (But she looks more like a 25 years old lady huh?
She visited us in Seremban last week so the three of us (Mama, Kak Ogy and myself) went out for our "girls-only" outing at Jusco S2. Mama and I treated her a birthday dinner at Secret Recipe. Where else to go in Seremban, if not Jusco S2?
H-Fibre Cheese Cake



As stomach is full and heart is happy, we headed to Mama's favourite pit stop every time we went to Jusco, none other than the MPH! This new Hajjah is so obsessed with "buku-buku agama" while I saw Kak Ogy browsing Lat's cartoon books at the bench and giggled to herself. I am no where to be seen near to Hajjah, I was at the entertainment section, browsing magazines for free thee hee hee.
I bumped into this book Eat, Pray and Love by Elizabeth Gilbert. Look interesting. Bf mentioned about the book too, he happens to knew it from the Oprah show. Man, I didn't know that he watch Oprah.

Awana Genting Highlands, Pahang

That workshop brings me to Genting, for the first time in my life, can you imagine? However due to tight workshop schedule, I don't even got the chance to smell the Theme Park. I guess I will have to come again somewhere later. I definitely will.
I only managed to snap few photos during our Hawaiian BBQ dinner. When the theme was announced, I kind of blank what to wear on that night. Suddenly that colorful and flowery Topshop tube came into my mind. I bought it few weeks ago. It was on 50% discount. Seronok juga the Hawaiian BBQ dinner. At the entrance, everyone was crowned with hula flower. Hula lula~
In the pictures are my partner in crime in the office. They rock! Without them, my life (in the office) would be empty, dull and boring.
As the organizing committee, we worked hard for making to happen. Am so glad everything went well, despite few glitches (biasalah) and deserve one day off today, but unfortunately, I still come to the office then left to SMK King George V, Seremban for Career and Sponsorship Talk. I feel like a zombie now. I need to ZZzzzZZ.

This is Miss Hikma
This is Afzan
This is Syed Saud, from Pakistan Office and Zaman

I sing happily as I my lasagna tastes how like lasagna should be, at only one attempt. Hurrah! I used 8 pieces of lasagna and in between the lasagna sheets lays the tomato + minced meat sauce and bechamel sauce. This is also my first time cooking bechamel sauce@white sauce, which is the mother sauce of French cuisine. My bf loves it so much as it was served with extra cheese, just like how he likes it.

Haniza and Hairul's Birthday and Wedding Anniversary

Restoran Dondang Sayang, Corrus Hotel
26 July 2008

Whenever there's luncheon or dinner gathering, we were never early, always 15-30mins late. Thank God the KL residents were very understanding to these two people from Seremban. But not on that day! We were way ahead them, managed to arrive 30 mins before the event starts.
"Mana korang ni? Lambat betul lah" I texted them. Bagi pressure sikit :P
Bored of waiting, we opted for cam whoring :p
Cam whoring part II
Sampai je terus diorang makan :p
Look familiar? I afraid you might have bumped into her in Wondermilk Cafe
Check out Intan's "in-a-relationship" haircut
Mango slurpee
Carnivorous dish
What you looking at?
Nadia, it has been my routine to bake every Saturday night. I saw a toaster oven beside the dessert area. Do you think it's ok for me to spend some time there and start experimenting?
"Z, that is ridiculous!" Nadia says.
So she passed me that Cake Decorating magazine by Whilton, hoping I will ease out and it works!
