So the secret project is.....

Hello everybody! Only one week left to Hari Raya. Everything ready for you guys? Holidays booked? Clothes prepared? And...how about your Kuih Raya?


Jeng..jeng..jeng.. I read in Malaysian paper (online) last week, and I want to be as rich as Nani Rostam by dong what I know best. Apparently, she earns a nett income of RM20k by just selling kuih raya. Hehehe...so this is my not-so-secret project. I've been dreaming to sell my cooking, but honestly, with three kids and no extra help it won't be possible to do it. Plus, I was jus too lazy and couldn't be bothered before this. And, to be honest, I barely make any cookies for Hari Raya anyway. I used to just buy my kuih raya. OK, that's not completely true. I did make one type of kuih raya when I was living in Malaysia but only chocolate chip cookies and thats all. It's not even a proper kuih raya to start off with!

So, this can technically be viewed as my first attempt at baking and selling kuih raya. Phew...after all the effort, fortunately everything came together and more importantly they all tasted quite good. Hehehe...

This time, I am determined. By that, I mean I actually got off my behind and did it. For instance, last week, I was so busy making samples to distribute to my close friends (and potential customers). I did it by myself.

Ok, with help from my kids, Ameera and espceially Husayn who surprisingly, was a very good little helper. He helped arrange the cup cases in the baking tray and Ameera helped by drawing designs on my Nana Carries. My beloved hubby, drove me around to buy all the stuff, looked after my baby boy and of course, contributed the capital for this project of mine. My cousin, Atiqah who was by chance, visiting us over the weeked was forced to roll the cookie dough. Owh.. not to forget my baby Hisham, who was most of the time so understading and patiently waited and just looked curiously at Mummy looking so busy making cookies. Thank you guys I love you all.


Only 5 types of cookies as as start

So, for this coming Raya for the first time ever I'll be making my own kuih raya and more importantly, they'll be on SALE!!

Kuih Raya Samples

Alhamdulillah.... thank you for all the orders that have been coming in to date. As I've mentioned a couple of times already, this is my first time at doing this so, if there are any mistakes or areas I can improve on, please, please, do let me know.

OK, I've taken up enough kuih raya time already. Better start baking...

Woah.. bangga you!!

Good for you!!! If ada kemahiran, tak salah make full use of it. Jual kuih raya ni memang duit masyuk. Dulu time i single dok with my makcik yg buat kuih raya for sale. Tak menang tangan nak settlekan order yg tak putus-putus tu.

salam nana...

Terkejut sungguh bila kak t singgah blog nana ni.
Kalau nana balik M'sia satu hari nanti..bukak kedai kek, kedai biskut atau apa2 kedai yg jual semua2 yg nana buat ni dekat rumah kak t ye.

Nana dah lulus & layak buka kedai sendiri.

Proud & Happy for you.

Kak t ambil kesempatan ni utk ucapkan selamat hari raya, maaf zahir batin buat nana dan family. Maaf sangat kalau ada salah silap masa lalu..
Nana jaga diri baik2 ok...

Take care..
