hocus pocus, abracadabra.

I am really glad to be surrounded by business-minded friends who put their creativity to good use. One of such friend is Diyanah, a fellow NIE mate! I was quite blown away by the card designs that she and her team at Hocus Pocus have been uploading on their Instagram and Ili had also recommended that I approach them to design my card for me. So…. Why not kan?

Can I say that the card that they had designed for me is so spot-on? They really adhered to my requests – something teal, lacey and has a super bike in it! Not only that, the customized map they had inserted in was really pretty! They were accommodating to my feedback and would make changes accordingly 🙂

Here are some of their awesome card designs!

Amazing, right? Sometimes I really wish I was au fait in the use of Photoshop or Illustrator instead of only Paint!

Anyway, I have sent my cards for printing at Adam Hawa Kreatif (special thanks to Nazz for the heads-up!). They are very affordably-priced, but I will update more about their printing quality and service once I collect the cards end of this month, In Shaa Allah!


up, up and away.

After much deliberation on which villa to book for our honeymoon, we finally have decided on Dura Villas Bali, Seminyak! This was after countless of emails to various villas, enquiring on their shuttle services, whether they serve Halal food and also plenty of read-ups on their online reviews. We found our chosen villa to be the best among the short listed ones :p




We had our eyes and hearts set on their one-bedroom villa, considering the fact that we can’t wait to lounge by the pool while eating kacang cap tangan like orang kaya, hahaha. Furthermore, it’s going to be our honeymoon, so why not?

One plus point that I must share regarding this villa is their impeccable customer service thus far. I pm-ed them on their Facebook and they replied within the same day, requesting for my email address so that they will be able to communicate with me. The next day, they emailed me, asking for flight details as they will be arranging free airport pick-up! Alhamdulillah for the rezeki!

As I am an Agoda member, I was entitled to their insider deal. Hence, for 5 nights, including tax and service charge, their one-bedroom pool villa only costs $667. Within budget – checked!

Flight wise, we were initially bent on Jetstar as their flights to Bali were the cheapest among the other budget airlines. One fine night, I felt the sudden urge to check out Singapore Airlines and Garuda Airlines. To my surprise, flights to Bali cost $800 for the former and $700 for the latter! Jetstar, a budget airline, cost $704 -.-

Obviously, Jetstar out of the running.

The next day, felt the sudden urge again to check out Garuda’s special offers and chanced upon this:


I literally did the chicken dance in my room! Alerted K and we immediately booked it on the spot. Alhamdulillah for the rezeki once more, my awesome dad insisted that he pay for the flight tickets as a wedding gift for the both of us. So for us two, flight to Bali including taxes and fees cost $446. Within budget – checked!

Yay to insider deals, special offers and a loving dad 🙂
