The wedding

The wedding decorations.

I got married on December 2010, was engaged on October and had to prepare everything in 2 months!!My husband is American citizen, he didnt have too much time to spend in Indonesia that time, so, we flew from Shanghai ( we met up online on 2004, met up for a first time in Shanghai-China on 2010..what a story!) and had a wedding set up in my hometown. The December wedding was pretty much private and only the holy matrimony ceremony. Small town, small crowd, private wedding. And Seafood party for 150 guests at the restaurant at night. Simple, chic and cheap!well, it was i ever wanted. A simple private wedding.
Hubby enjoyed the scene actually, he is pretty much a laid back person who doesnt really like the big city. He enjoy everything about my hometown, country side, beaches, mountains and small population. So, it was perfect!

Then, on January 15th, we had a dinner party for friends and family's friends. It was at the Hotel, Buffet kind of style party, laid back, no entertainment whatsoever , it was for the meet up and talk and celebration without any   big party scenes. Even though the invitations were delivered by messages and phone. No decorations, no fancy theme. Simple. Classic, vintage atmosphere and just go with it kind of party.

So, just imagine how i need to rush in everything, from the cake, book the venue, invitations, souvenirs, pictures, everything the wedding needs. I even had to decor the tables by even organizer or whatsoever, it was DIY wedding.

But, i'm glad it turned out pretty sweet.

Thought i would share it here!

Printed invitation. Royal Vintage theme, printed on recycld paper. Only for the decoration on the front table, we didnt use the invitation to spread the words.

Front table decorations.

I designed and ordered the cake less in two weeks before the event. Red-champagne  themed, vintage 40's to 50's decorated. It matched my dress that night. 

The cake topper. Roses and feathers.  oldies theme.

The cupcakes. 

The souvenirs. The customized towel with our initial on it.

I used the empty bottle for a center-piece on each table, wrapped with 'story of us'  , laces, ribbons and dried-flowers and pre-wedding pictures on it.


table tag on the top of the bottle.

The cakes and sweets table, decorated with our picture on it.

Fruits stand.

Thought of the day


" Believe Big. The size of your success is determined by the size of your belief. Think little goals and expect little achievements. Think big goals and win big success. Remember this, too! Big ideas and big plans are often easier - certainly no more difficult - than small ideas and small plans."

On Batik Indonesia

The motifs and the story.

I have been using lots of Indonesian Batik on my label GULA ( means Sugar in English). Thought i would love to share something about Batik. 
Even thought i have a wikipedia link about what is Batik all about, but this is would be something to read when you ended up visiting my blog. 

Batik is Indonesian traditional cloth. Well known as the treasure of Indonesian cultures, being recorded by UNESCO as a masterpiece of the cultures, i think it is something that i would be proud of. Therefore, using it in design and some of my projects are the best privilege for me to introduce it more to the world, where am i coming from.

The process of batik originally made by hand, hand-drawn, hand-painted by soak it into the colored water, hand-waxed , and air-dried. Back then, the colors process used the natural colorist, such as plants or fruits. Now, the process become modern, you can find a batik stamp for mass productions of Batik or printed ones. And the original ones which made by hand available in high price at the market.

Batik motifs are variable, but, some motifs called as forbidden motifs, thats mean, only the high status such as king or the royal family. But now, it becomes the famous motifs that could be worn by anybody.The infamous batik motif is Parang rusak , known as Broken swords, damaged reefs or damaged machete.

the sample of "parang rusak"

Parang Rusak motif

Inspiration actually come from the phenomenon of large waves that break up rock and ruin. In the Java language, the term with a machete near the reef. Parang broken means broken or damaged reefs.
Anyway, in Javanese language up to today, it just know parang means big traditional knife that illustrate courage. But, the truth about it actually is not about the swords or machetes or knife itself, There are hidden meaning behind the motifs. It actually took the meaning from the reef nearby the sea and the wave philosophy, never broken relationship between the king or royal family, the unbroken royalty lines that given from the king to his family. Also, the diagonal line represents the respect, honors, the truth and the loyalty.
This motif back then was often use as a presents for the king and the family as the 'good news' from the soldiers who came back from the war and won the battle.
There are couples of Parang rusak motifs out there, each with their own meanings and philosophy. 
There are also other motifs that inspired batik, such as flowers, animals or even the wayang or Indonesian traditional puppets.

For my project, i am using lots of modern parang rusak motifs. 
you can see on one of my necklace piece below that using parang rusak motifs
