Sunday Morning


Woke up at 8am. Tried to sleep again at 10am. But couldn't since my brother was laughing hysterically watching 'Upin Ipin's Geng: The Adventure Begins'. First time dia tengok. Kesian.

Sunday morning is the best time to laze around. Too bad I have so many things to do today !

Say Bye-bye To Buttercream

"No more buttercream. No more pastel colors. Weird looking"

That's how Malyn descibed cakes nowadays after she saw the cake I made for her mummy's birthday. My Mak Uda.

It's true. Now the in thing is full fondant mini cake with whimsical designs. And striking colors...yeahhh !!

Happy Birthday, Mak Uda !!

Mak Uda : "Thank you for the lovely lovely lovely cake"
I am not exaggerating. Mak Uda did say 'lovely' three times.
Melted and proud.

Just want to show you the size.

Izzah : "Yah, kalau terjatuh nasib la ek"
Yayah :  T____T

               Family and close friends call me Yayah.
Except for Mama, my sister, and brother. They call me Naqiah.
And my Mr. calls me Ili.
Others just call me Ili.

Hai, my name is Ili Naquiah Johari. You can call me Ili, Yayah or Naqiah.

Almost Mini Cake


Not sure this entry can be categorized as 'mini cake' or just 'cake'. I don't think it has the full criteria of being a mini cake. Like a mini cake ter-overweight sikit.

A small photoshoot.

Model : Izzah Fathi
Location : Dinding tepi rumah
Time : Tengah tangkap-tangkap gambar cake, tiba-tiba Izzah datang. So jadi mangsa model.

Nurul Ili Izzah

She's not my sister.
She's not my twin.
She's my cousin.

But we're almost sisters.
We don't look alike but most of the time we think alike. (Sangat ramai cakap muka sama)
Especially the craziness side of our brain is totally alike.
Most of the time we like the same thing. That tudung she's wearing, I also have one.
She's not just a cousin. She's my BFF. We've been bestfriends from the day she was born. (Ye la tu. Tapi lebih kurang la)
She's annoying. I am too. Told you we're almost alike.

I made this cake for my other cousin, Amalyna Teja. But I know she won't take pictures with the cake. Lagi-lagi when we met that day, she just finished her full day class, wearing baju kurung, make up dah cair.

 I made this cake for her belated birthday (Her birthday is in November). And plus we did a photoshoot and she was the photographer. So it's like a 'thank you' cake.

Amalyna is my other 'almost sisters' too. My BFF too. And you guessed it, she's annoying too. But that's what we love about each other. Annoying makes it 'us'.

We're the three blind mice....! Hah ?????   It was on the top of my head. So not cool comparing to blind mice.

Ok tukar-tukar.

We're the three shopaholic-icecreamholic-lunatic-loveable-fun-musketeers.
Better than three blind mice.....what was I thinking...???

A song for them. How sweet am I. From Demi Lovato and Selena Gomez's song. Tapi ada potong-potong sikit.

You come from here, I come from there
We're more alike than anybody could ever tell
Friday we're cool, Monday we're freaks
Sometimes we rule, sometimes we can't even speak
But we can get up and let loose and LOL

It may seem cliché for me to wanna say
That you're not alone
And you can call me uncool but it's a simple fact
I got your back.

'Cause we're one and the same
We're anything but ordinary
One and the same
I think we're almost legendary

You and me, the perfect team
Chasing down the dream
We're one and the same!
I'm kinda like you, you're kinda like me
When we write the same song in a different key
It's got a rhythm you and me can get along

One and the same
We're so good, more than momentary!

Tiba-tiba rasa macam jiwang sangat la pula.

Turn Your Head 360 Degrees

You spin my head right round, right round, when ya go down when ya go down down.
(A song by Flo Rida. Kind of chatchy but annoying at the same time. I don't really listen to this kind of music. It's true. I'm not lying. Even though I remember all the words to this song.)

Ok remember that day I made cupcakes for my friend, Eireen Camelia on her birthday ? Just click if you haven't read it yet or if you forgot about the entry or if you want to read it again or even if you don't care......Just click it !!

I have more pictures that I took on that day. Just got it developed.

The 20 year old in the playground tunnel.

The cupcakes designer who is afftected by the showing-peace-sign disease from her sister.
 Awesome huh ?

The motive of taking this picture is to show the cupcakes. Can you see them ?

My legs look long and slim. Awesome ! My dream comes true !!

My face shows full of enthuasiasm.

My pretty friend...........Pffftttt. I'm so mean. But trust me, we're not the type that praise each other. We're the type that praise ourselves. Like a lot !

'Kanak-kanak ribena'. Eireen loves to sit far away so that it will make her looks small whereas I look like a giant. Aaaahhhhhhhh pandai la you woman !!!

I feel this picture is awesome. I told you we're the type that puji diri sendiri. Don't tell me I didn't warn you.

All the pictures were captured using Lomography Spinner. It's so freaking awesome.

Thanks again to my Mr. for lending me his Spinner. You're awesome too. Hee.

Can you count how many 'awesome' I used in this entry ?

Give A Clap To My 1st Wedding Cake

My first wedding cake was for my cousin. I did a single tier with big flowers. Huge..!

The original plan was two tier cake with fondant drapping and glittered flowers. But I was admitted in the hospital with Mama (katil sebelah-sebelah.) for dengue fever (bad nyamuk bad !!) a week before the wedding. So sad that I was admitted but even sadder I had to change the design.

I baked and decorated the cake only a day before the wedding. It turned out simple but yet I'm still proud of myself.

My cousin brother with his new wife.

Eeeeeikk the cake looks so small !!

Sorry to my cousins yang dah kahwin awal-awal. Tak dapat nak bagi cake as a wedding gift. Time dulu tak reti lagi nak decorate cake. Minat muncul lambat. ;p

Teddy Bear

Do you love to cuddle with your teddy bear ?

Do you go "awwwww he's so cute" when you see a teddy bear ?

Do you like to eat ?

Do you like something sweet ?

Do you like crunchy things ?

So why not get all this in just one

except you can't cuddle with this one..............or can you ?

One more question
Do you love me ?

When Staying at Home Gets Boring

Gedik. I know.

Don't play with your food.

Baru sedar gambar kat atas tu telah di edit sampai tak nampak color cookies. Sebab edit ikut color kulit so that saya tak nampak hitam sangat. Oh sangat jujur.

Hot pink..!!!

Inspired by henna designs


Ok. The last picture is not really henna designs. Just my usual swirl designs.

A million thanks to Arinah and family for the cookies. She ordered 300 cookies with assorted shapes and designs. Had fun decorating them. That's why I had a chance to explore henna designs. Love them..!!

Not relevant. Can't be eaten. I have no point. Thank you.
