          Wedding Movie Bunting

          Ell, who ordered the chandeliers-inspired wedding card, wanted a bunting similar to a wedding movie poster which she found at

          Their pre-wed photo album has so many beautiful shots. So I decided to combine at least two of them. "The Infinite Love Story of Mr. & Mrs.Fariz" is the title of her wedding blog. And no movie poster is complete without the credits, usually placed at the very bottom on a movie poster.

          "Itsy Bitsy Teenie Weenie Yellow Polka Dot Bikini"

          This entry has got nothing to do with any yellow bikini.

          But it's everything about polka dots. Saiful Amri & Ili Farhana tied the knot a month ago. They are in the midst of preparing for the 'Sambut Menantu', which will take place in the middle December.

          The bride loved polka dots and the groom lovingly obliged. 
          The groom wanted a clean & simple design and the bride happily agreed.

          I didn't expect the actual cards would look very 'sweet & tasty'. They somehow remind me of kuih lapis, a local delicacy.
          The artwork

          The actual card

          The title of this post is actually a title of 1960's song by Brian Hyland.

          I love tulip

          The tulip, originally grew wild in Persia, was first cultivated in Turki as early as 1000AD. According to the Persian legend, a boy named Farhad, fell in love with a beautiful girl, Shirin. Sadly one day, he heard that she had been killed. His life shattered to pieces and he was crushed by sorrow. He then mounted his favorite horse and galloped over a cliff to his death. And a tulip grew from each drop of his blood that trickled onto the ground, a symbol of his perfect love. Due to this, the red tulip became a symbol of passionate love in ancient Persia. 

          It was so often found in Persian poetry, songs and paintings that the tulips were considered the symbol of Ottoman Empire. The tulip was introduced in Western Europe & the Netherlands in 17th century and Holland has been the main breeder and supplier of hundreds of  tulip species for hundreds of years.

          Tulip is my favourite flower. To me, it personifies a lady of graceful charm and humble beauty. I'd gladly accept any opportunity to work on tulips inspired design. 

          Congratulations to Izrin & Khairul Anuar. 
          My best wishes for your wedding & future life together as a husband and a wife.

          I heard it from the birds.

          A bird does not sing because it has an answer. 
          It sings because it has a song.

          I heard the birds singing a song. 
          And it was a love song.

          Overall, the artwork doesn't resemble anything 'Malay'. 
          But it was a relief when the groom & his family gave their nods of approval.
          Thank you Fathee & family. My best wishes to you and your future Mrs.Fathee.

          Tiles of pink & blue

          Bonna's choice of colours & element are quite a challenge to me. Two strikingly different theme colours, and a filigree shape, to be incorporated into one concept. I decided to throw in elements of tiles together and here are the final artworks. Blue tiles on pink background for the bride & pink tiles on blue background for her groom.

          Congratulations to Bonna & Hailmi, who ordered these all the way from Sabah, the land below the wind. I wish you all the best and thank you.
