DIY Wedding Ideas: 'Kaya' In A Jar Wedding Gift

Here is another wedding gift ideas from my wedding. 'Kaya' in a jar wedding gift. I did the jar decoration by my self and it took around 2 weeks to finish 800 jars. Here are the things you'll need to decorate the jar:

1) small jars - available at Qualitypacks, bandar kinrara - Rm0.85/jar
2) Ribbons as decorations.
3) Small pieces of cloth-  cut into square, to be tied up on top of the jar, 
4) Craft ribbon/small rope - to tie up pieces of cloth to the jar
5) Labels - printed and punch using craft puncher (refer to DIY Brown Paperbag)


The total cost for a jar was around RM1.50. Including 'kaya', that cost me 50 cents per jar.

Is it worth it to do it youself? what can i say is ........... Although the cost is not much different from what available in the market, but to me, every seconds of spending doing what i love most is so much valuable, especially when it comes to the gifts for my special day.

Happy D.I.Y.

McCafe' : The Fast Food Coffee Shop

One afterrnoon, we came across a bunting -  "McCafe' is now available @ McDonald MITC". Being a coffee fans, we drove into McDonalds drive through, just to find out that McCafe' only available for dine in... oooo. That was something different. So we went in. To our surprised, McCafe wasnt just a drink, it was a coffee shop in mcdonald. Hm... let just say, starbucks of McDonalds version. The taste? Wasnt that bad either. And the price was cheaper than starbucks of course. Other than high class coffee, theres also cheesecakes, muffins, and cookies ... perfect deserts to eat with coffee.
*McCafe' is available only in mcdonalds choosen outlets.

Wedding cakes: Fabulous vs Delicious

 




It was a very beautiful night. You could smell the scents of fresh roses all around the ballroom. A breathtaking chandelier lights, complete the touch of elegant. In one corner, stood a very beautiful and eye catching three tier wedding cake.

Romantic songs were played, and then came along the bride and groom, holding hands,  walking slowly towards the gorgeous 'pelamin' on stage. Eyes on them... "Beautiful bride!", "handsome groom!". "where did they met?" "Who did you say he work for...?"... The compliments and questions pop up one by on while the bride and groom enjoying their moments of happy ending, as a king and queen of the night.

Next, came the grand final for the reception, the wedding cakes. Both bride and groom smilingly hold hands and cut the beautiful cake. With that came the sound of applause from the guest. The moments was captured by numbers of cameras. 5 minutes later, the ceremony was all over.

.. The cake. It would be nice to have some, wont it?. Why don't they distribute the cake to the guest?  Its so big, that everyone could have a bite rite?

Somehow, at that moment, we went to have a good look at the 'fabulous' cake. Surprisingly, there was like NO CAKE at all. There's only a very small portion of real cake at the bottom of 3 tier cake, just enough for the bride and groom to have a bite. hm....... FAKE CAKE, haha.

Fake Cake

We left the ballroom with a big laugh. Fabulous cakes turn out to be just 'For Your Eye Only'. What more can u ask for a dream wedding cake with a low budget. Even more, it might just be the cake 'SPONSORED' or 'INCLUDED' by the hotel package.

Fabulous vs delicious cake? well..... i would go for a simple delicious wedding cake. At least, i could share it with my families and friends.
