My brother's engagement hantaran

Before I write further, let me take this opportunity to thank each and every one of you who still follows this blog. I appreciate that as time goes by there is still an increase in my followers list, which means that I owe you, my respected reader, more posts and updates.

My brother just got engaged last Saturday, and I was happy to make the hantarans for him. The colour, i shall say is the most challenging, as he wanted blue. I am not much of a blue fan anymore, especially when it comes to that turqoise and striking blue which made a hit last few years. I think its sooo yesterday (no pun intended :))

After I made some research, I suggested to my brother to have a more of an aquamarine blue. He agreed, and so here we are. I bought the artificial flowers from SSF, because personally I think that their flowers are more realistic. And the end results is a combination of aquamarine, green, white and silver. Not bad huh?

Well as usual, I hope this colour combination inspires you nonetheless. Please ignore the messy background of my makeshift "craft room". Heheh.

Mini muffin

I found this adorable mini muffin at Giant, in Megamall Kuantan. It was made by a bakeryin Shah Alam, and is neatly packaged inside a cute ziplocked bag. There is around 20 pieces inside.

Dont you think it would make a nice cute doorgift? Wrap it up inside a fancy pouch or sachet perhaps and its ready to go.

I would prefer food as doorgift these days, because it goes into the tummy and makes me happy, instead of some useless ornaments which will only collect dust in the end of the day.

Hope this inspires you today :)BlogBooster-The most productive way for mobile blogging. BlogBooster is a multi-service blog editor for iPhone, Android, WebOs and your desktop

Simple Centerpieces Ideas

Centerpieces could help set a nice vibe to a wedding, because of its presence. It does not mean that you have to splurge on fancy ones, simple but sweet ones will do. For our traditional weddings, having a simple ones could be really be a saviour, as we get to decorate all the guest tables with less budget but with high impact. Just make sure you have the time to DIY, and do not forget, its never wrong to delegate wisely.

These are some of my favourites :)

Hello again, and how about black on a bouquet?

Hey ladies (and gentlemen), I am back. I do not want to bore you with my excuses for absence again, so let this be the comeback for now.

I found this photo quite sometime ago, and because I am such a lover of creamy and pink hues, I adore this beautiful piece. Some of us do not like black for weddings, but to me, I think it looks gorgeous when paired with a sweet colour like this.

Too bad I forgot where I got this from, so to the owner or anyone, please let me know if you find out the source, so that I can give credits respectively.

Aaahh..i could stare at this bouquet for quite sometime :)

On another note, I have brought up my personal blog via Blogspot again (before it was Wordpress). So to those of you interested to know me more,drop by for a visit ;)

Until then ;)

90 Days For Mum Campaign

Help spread the word, and maybe sign off too :) Malaysian Mommy deserves more than 2months Maternity Leave, for the sake of them and especially for the baby.

Click here to sign the petition and be a part of the campaign. Collection of signatures in support of this petition will end on 6th June 2010.
Excerpt from the letter to our Prime Minister:

The National Union of Bank Employees (Nube) has launched a campaign on March 8 to collect one million signatures in support of its proposal to provide longer maternity leave for women employees in the country.

Its general secretary, J. Solomon, said the campaign, in conjunction with the International Women’s day celebration, was aimed at getting the government to amend the Employment Act 1955 to increase the maternity leave from 60 days to 90 days in line with the practice in other Asean countries.

He said Nube would also invite trade unionists, representatives from the International Labour Organisation (ILO) and womens’ organisations, medical professionals, academicians, relevant government agencies and the media for various programmes during the campaign period.

He said Nube believed that an increased entitlement would be the greatest gift to Malaysia’s 5.1 million women employees from Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak, who had been sympathetic to the weaker and underprivileged groups in promoting his 1Malaysia concept.
Statutory maternity leave in Southeast Asia:

Singapore – 112 days (16 weeks)Thailand – 90 days (3 months)Cambodia – 90 daysIndonesia – 90 daysMalaysia – 60 days

Some Southeast Asian countries even provide breastfeeding and child care protection. For example a mother in Singapore gets up to 12 months leave to breastfeed and care for her newborn. In Cambodia, companies are obliged to grant a new mother a 30-minute break twice daily to breastfeed her child. Those with more than 100 women workers have to provide nursing rooms and day care centers, with the cost of childcare borne by the company. Indonesian employers meanwhile are required to provide a suitable place for breastfeeding mothers to nurse their children during work hours.

These are but some of the instances of protection for women workers afforded under the ILO convention.

Malaysia, unfortunately, is lagging far behind and there is a pressing need to amend the relevant provision in the Employment Act 1955.

The 60-day paid maternity leave is simply not enough for most Malaysian women.
Why? A women who goes through the delivery of a child suffers not just physically but emotionally and mental too.
