Craze Pop | Deliciously Designed

Cake Pop. Am sure you have heard of one or at least seen/ate one.
Well, I haven’t but I have been ogling Craze Pop Instagram account for quite awhile now, you won’t believe how thrilled I am when they have been selected to be part of KL Media Trip. Rain or shine, I will be there, me telling Della.

No no… you need to understand how long this was for me, how I want to try but have no reason to buy (am not a birthday/party sort of girl [so don’t bother throwing me a surprise birthday party, I probably get upset]). What I did a couple of months back was I placed an order and paid (curious punya pasal) but TERforgot to take it. Betullll... lupa ambek.

So here I am, meeting the Craze Pop owner, lotsa of questions to ask (but I need to mum cause I need to give way to other media and Shad to ask questions [internal joke] but 10 mins before we bid adieu, I got my ‘time’ to ask her questions. Muahahhaha….. ß evil laugh.

We were taught on how to make the cake pop and etc, knowing myslf, I should do what I do best – BUY! Hahhahahaa…. Leceh bebenor nak belajar buat bagai.

Anyway, lemme share abit about Kak Nur. She used to be in the work force, an experience designer. Then she decided to quit and focus on work that she can manage her own time and yet, still involve in designing (well, kinda). Not into baking, she began to search on baking that doesn’t require baking (oven type of baking). Cake pop was the easiest and closest she could find as she can buy a good delicious cake and start from there… however, she said now she has to take up baking as well as the order quantity increases. This is to ensure consistency in taste and availability.

Ass shown, the design varies upon request. Kak Nur will analyse the feasibility of creating the requested design before agreeing with the order. This is the part that requires creativity, artistic flare and stable hand. Go check-out her Instagram account and go oohh-aahh… over her food art.

For order and class enquiry : whatsapp +6019- 334 8010 or

With regards to my uncollected order. Kena order baliklah kan. Hahhahaa…

Bingka KL | Souvenir going lokal

I bumped into this brand at one of the art bazaar at GE Mall of Jalan Ampang.  I immediately feel this brand can go far, it has a good objective and focus just by looking at the concept and product. What Malaysia independent art souvenir scene is currently lacking (cakap macam real-real je, ahaks).

Joke aside, the concept is very good. Well thought thru in my opinion.
The product is pretty much normal but not common in Malaysia if one is looking for a gift/souvenir from souvenir. The usually stuff that we get tends to be the fridge magnets, keychain, fan, luggage tag and etc. But what Bingka KL did was on top and above, as they covered kitchen towel (you can get this easily in Europe), coasters, pouches and tote bag. What made Bingka stands out is in its concept, it features Malaysia culture and heritage, something that is so common but did not get enough visibility (I think so lah).

Instead of featuring the Melaka Stadhuys, the twin tower,  the orang utan, Batu Caves and etc, Bingka injected ‘design’ that is close to Malaysia heart, one that we wouldn’t mind buying for ourselves. Kuih Bingka, pulut tai tai, Malayan Tiger, Negaraku, sirap bandung, mooncake, mangkuk sia/tingkat, Penang shop façade, kaya… and many more. Something that any of us can buy and bring when traveling, exchange or as a gift to new friends. A great conversation starter, we can educate and promote Malaysia, our culture and heritage.

A nice touch to it is that at the back of the pouches, stated ‘With Love from Malaysia’. This makes it sound very personalized.

Pouches are my favourite as it is practical and one can use it for almost anything, next would be a tote bag. And the placemat is cool too, gosh…. I might be buying the whole design (facepalm).

The Bingka team were besties since standard one - Adrihana and Emmalyn, both were Mechanical Engineering and Digital Animation students, respectively. Adri leads the operations in Bingka and Emma, designs what we see today. In fact, Emma has worked on international blockbuster movies before.

When asked why Bingka, why not Lapis, Kasui, Putu Piring and etc. They said that they wanted a short, catchy and easy for people to pronounce, regardless of nationality. What better then Bingka, a traditional food where us Malaysia appreciate of/most.

Just like mom’s place at Dusun Bonda (ni lagi bosa kot)

Hahahhahhaha…. Glamping site in Selangor. And you don’t need to drive all the way to Pahang as the location is in Batang Kali. Near huh, approximately an hour drive from Batu Caves. Hidup Selangor! #eh

I don’t even know where there to start…. For those who have been to a glamping site would probably understand. For me, the only time I experienced this was when I went to Sabah recently, but the site was by the sea. It being in an orchard and by the river is refreshing. Everything was well design and the landscape was very next-door-nature-like, coupled with amenities (listed below)… I have to say, I wouldn’t mind recommending this to friends and family.
