Selamat Hari Raya!

So I wanted to blog about it on the first day (19th Aug), which is also the day marked the end of Ramadan. In case you didn't know, Ramadan is a month-long period of fasting observed by Muslims. Although I'm not a Muslim, my country is happily multi-racial and so I know a little about the festival and religion.

But I was being a tech-idiot and I spent a few days figuring out how to upload photos onto my blog using Flickr when Blogger informed me that I had reached my limit on Picasa Web Albums. Which is why I'm only blogging today. Ok why am I boring you with these information. 

So here are some miniature pastries commissioned as a gift for the owner of Sift Desserts. Just a disclaimer that AiClay is not affiliated with Sift Desserts. But they do have beautiful desserts, I was practically salivating when I was browsing through their gallery. If you're in Hong Kong, you might want to pop by their cafe for a treat!

These miniature replicas are entirely handsculpted and modelled after Sift Desserts' creations, with permission from the commissioner as they are gifts for the owner. There are still a lot more to share in upcoming posts!

I was in the markets of Kampong Glam that day for a last minute checking out of Hari Raya goodies and soaking up of the atmosphere. There were swarms of people, mostly Malays getting in some hasty shopping for new clothes and goodies to serve for the next day. Me and Jack bought a Ramly burger to share, mmm it was good! If you ever spot one of these Ramly stalls, you have got to try their burgers. They are just full of kampung tastiness, though I wouldn't want to know what really goes into their wonderful mystery meat. :/

Yay, a photo of them in my hand. I love these photos most, though they're a pain to take. Try balancing a heavy DSLR in one hand and you'll know what I mean.

Finally, August Commissions are now open! 

Only 2 slots this time, because I have some other collaborations taking place. Like, the Mediacorp crew will be heading to my workplace to film and interview me for a segment on a new programme. - excited cheers inwardly. And I really want to gather some time to plan a few workshops. :)

As usual, all AiMail subscribers will receive this announcement at least half a day earlier than the rest, so get subscribing if you want to get first hand notice as well!

  1. These cupcakes look so real, it is hard to remember that they are miniatures when you are looking at the photos. The nice thing about miniature sweets is that they don't have any calories! Miniature candies and
