Senik Event Catering
As I had mentioned previously, my parents sponsored for my catering, alhamdulillah. And also Because I knew choosing a catering vendor will forever be a sensitive issue, well to our parents, that is. When I first heard that mother wants to take Senik, I obviously had no idea and never heard of Senik before. Turns out, my aunt has been working for them for years doing their kuih-muih melayu. And mother have tasted their dishes couple of times, I think?
Their prices were quite affordable, maybe around $10-$13 per pax? Well anyway, people raved on how delicious the foods were that they went for their 2nd/3rd round, from the lauk-pauk to the kuihs. I was so, so upset I didn’t get the chance to taste their dishes on my wedding. Benci k! At least there were roti boyan leftovers! WOO! SEDAP!!!
But alhamdulillah, there weren’t any complaints from guests.
Remember when I mentioned that mother increased on the number of pax to 1,300? Mother told me that Cik-who-I-totally-forgot-her-name informed mother that all the lauk were almost finished. And the best part, it was only 4 in the afternoon. She was so kind to be able to top-up for another 100 pax. Bless her heart! Can you believe its a total of 1,400 pax already? By end of majlis, mother told me that there weren’t any wastage at all! The remaining lauk and kuihs were all packed and distributed to my families. Syukur Alhamdulillah! I wish there were pictures that I could show!
Sara & Dean (Ice Cream)
I came across Sara & Dean through my close friend, Yati, cos because this ice cream station were ran by her younger brother & his wife. Well initially, I wasn’t open to any ideas wanting to have any live station on my wedding.
I don’t know how/what/why it happened, made me tergerak hati to get them. Maybe because most of the weddings that I attended, have an ice cream live station. It’s more of a want than a need. Aku pon nak jugak lah! Thus, budak mentel ni, itchy hand, place a deposit with them. I wasn’t so sure on how many pax I should take since I had a total of 1300 pax. Yati advised that not everyone likes eating ice cream, which is true! Lagi-lagi orang tua cannot eat sweet things.
She suggested on just taking for 800 pax, which costs $900. Its quite expensive but its actually worth it because its a gourmet homemade ice cream, YES, homemade. She made it all from scratch! And true to Yati’s words, it was more than enough! Because by the end of the day, there were little ice cream left! I don’t know how many flavours were there on that day. But all I could remember were the salted gula melaka, horlicks, red velvet, salted caramel, bandung and cookies & cream.
Was so happy that the both of us managed to eat their ice cream because they served specially for us in a small bowl with all the flavours in it when we were sitting on the pelamin. SO GOOOOD I TELL YOU! I would have clean the whole bowl but people busy being a pengantin kan, else, kene marah ngan semua orang nanti. See la our happy faces! Haish, so sedap ya allah!

Part ni, the husband makan berkecah k! Ice cream kene kat baju dia. *Rolls eyes*
Yati was so nice to sponsor a 2 tier cake and cupcakes for me that was also baked by her sister in law. I asked for a naked cake, but I was so disappointed with how it turned out to be. I did show a sample picture of a naked cake.I mean, not tryna brag but I could bake 100 times better and make it more senonoh looking. So lucky to have Yati to help me out to cover certain areas of the cake with leftover flowers that I have.
Can you imagine while I was getting my hair done, Yati came in and told me this?! Hampa gila okay! Kalau tak, right at that moment jugak dengan rambut macam nenek kebayan, I go down and fix the cake myself. Bukan tak appreciate but lain kali buat kerje tu senonoh sikit boleh? Nasib cake sedap! Anyway, Lo and behold, my cake stand! So proud of it! Bahahaha! The 1st box is a wine box which Yati managed to kapok from our workplace while the 2nd box was created by my mother. She bought the wooden planks from daiso and put them together. So happyyyy!
