breaking monsoon

our angels took an early leave at the end of last ramadan in order to regroup in Kota Baru on the second day of Eid Fitri for another exciting assignment. a client had requested for an English garden themed wedding in his beautifully planned private residence overlooking the Kelantan river. the focal point of the occasion would be the pelamin incased in a sunroom facing the client's well-manicured garden. of course, we breathe and live drama. so, in order not to take our client's request too literally (or bore our angels indiscriminately), we decided to interpret the theme quite differently. our inspiration for the pelamin came in the image of a giant crystal chandelier crashing down onto a garden, spewing shards of broken glass helter-skelter, raining glittering debris all over, resulting in a spectacular and memorable sight to behold. and judging from the reaction of our client and his guests when they saw the spectacle we created, we believe that we've succeeded in bringing our inspiration to life!

iftar in cyber space

last friday, we took time off to celebrate this year's ramadan in merriment at the Cyberview Resort & Spa in Cyberjaya. the verdant surround of the beautiful resort provided a rejuvenating reprieve to our angels as they lounged by the pool, savoring the fresh air and basking in the late afternoon sun. as the sun set, they retreated into the warm comfort of the Verandah restaurant for iftar. the savory treats provided by the restaurant proved to be extra special to several of our angels as they delight in being served by a well-known celebrity chef. 'twas yet another gathering to be cherished by all!

intricate affair

a lone tree leaned graciously over the entrance of the Royale Bintang the Curve ballroom, serenely awaiting the arrival of guests to Astro's iftar event with reps from the local media.  pendants hung from the murayya branches gave away the festive theme of the occasion.  the representative from Astro who discussed the event with two of our angels wanted to add traditional elements to the decor to reflect the festive mood of the occasion.  to evade triteness with the use of familiar elements such as the ketupat or pelita, our angels suggested using Astro's "Eratkan Jalinan" campaign logo as pendants (hanging ketupats) and table runners. the use of greens, whites and creams in the flowers and table overlays further heightened the festive feel and melded the decor seamlessly with the calm interior of the ballroom.
