2012 Journey ..

It's been a colorful 2012 year for me. Full of happiness, laughter, emotionally unstable and lead to sorrow..
Alhamdulillah, thank you Allah for what you have given us.  Please bless us every second of this precious life.

I wasn't really focus on work in 2012 , i just do what ever i think i can and able to do as was busy traveling from KL to Kuantan for the family especially my late mum until I decided to move in with mum and dad. Eventho i'm not able to focus at work but I was much happier to be with my mum till her last breath. And now I miss her every minute. Will never forget Friday 12 October 2012 the last day i spoke to my mum :( and I can't hear her voice anymore..May Allah grant the best for her and she'll be placed in Jannah, InsyaAllah. Al-Fatihah.

I'm still struggling to face the world without my mum. Alhamdulillah, I have the rest of other family members to give me full support to make sure MPC to grow well one day.
I've so much dream for MPC, and really hope for a smooth sailing. 

So, looking back 2012's journey..

Alhamdulillah participated in sharing ideas with local magazines readers..

With that, MPC welcoming 2013 which shall enter in a few hours time from now with high hope and full of success. InsyaAllah. Not forgetting a better me as a person, I have to see myself consistently penuhi tuntutan ibadah as a Muslim. 

Thanks to everyone out there , who's being there for Maya Puri Creations..especially to the family members, friends, followers, and not forgetting the print media journalist for the great exposure and write up. Thanks heaps !!! ..

Hantaran for my cousin brother and cousin sister

Been away from my blog for quite a while. Trying my best to get up again after great loss to the family.   Really wired feeling without my mum around. She's the reason I'm here.  May Allah grant the best for her soul and hope she knows that i missed her so much.

Tough time to pick up .. somehow i still got to do my cousins request. Only managed to get the engagement hantaran and the hand bouquet done as I was still in a sad phase at that point of time.  Pitty them got to get somebody else to do the dais.

And i don't really into taking pictures so here's only what i managed to get ...

Shall hear the good news next year ya ..

Thanks to all whom has given full support and came to visit.

Somehow, I'm still sad and shocked hope for speedy recovery. Really appreciate to extend your do a and fatihah for my late mother. Al-Fatihah.

Mak, I love and miss you so much :( . No one can ever replace you.

Mini Birthday Pack for Nail

Last weekend really a hectic weekend .. 3 chores to be done in a row.  Need to get 50 MINI tote bags done, to bake 50pcs sugar cookies for the birthday pack item ( I'm lucky to have my sister to bake for me hehehe ) and to make Tiramisu for my Tiramisu diehard fan hehehe...

Thanks a lot to my siblings willing to help .. with all the hick ups hahaha. And since need to get help from my dad to deliver the birthday pack to Kuantan, i guess my speed was 150km/hr ..nahhhh. but i felt i was really SLOW hahaha..20km/hr ???

Anyway, for this lovely birthday boy.. I've made him MINI tote bag with goodies inside for his friends.
Used Japanese cotton and muslin for the lining also cotton tape for the handle.

The alphabets does spice up the tote bag. Time consuming but pretty and i don't mind doing that.

Hope he loves them ...and hope the mother loves the idea too ..Happy 6th Birthday Nail.

Syawal Cuppies

Received call for an engagement cuppies .. Even it's raya, order is still an order :) . Since it's kind of last minute request, i had to offer for mixed flavor cup cakes instead of Red Velvet cuppies because all the baking shop still closed in Kuantan. Thus, I was not able to get my buttermilk ehhehe..

With all the hick ups .. was done with Pandan, Strawberry and Vanilla flavor cup cakes with butter cream frosting. Tq Zainah for the order :).

SOLD OUT sewing project

Just to share eventho 1st batch of passport holder named PASTICKET sold out during Ramadhan this year. Alhamdulillah.. great respond from followers.
