Karnival Susuibu @ Melaka

Alhamdulillah, NeezaNeedles joined another bazaar. This time around agak jauh di Melaka, dan juga agak special sbb saya telah diberi peluang untuk bercakap berkenaan dengan Babywearing, kebaikannya dan juga type of carriers yang digunakan.

Ok, kali ni persediaan agak tidak beria. Unlike my debut bazaar participation, I just made 6 carriers (half than those for GCDC event). Sebabnya, I sensed that the market is not huge like in KL and lagipun tengah bulan mcm ni and I was too a bit nervouse with my talk.



So we went to Melaka at dusk. Hari Sabtu, Mat ada kelas so have to wait for him finished class then baru make a move. We reached by 9, and sebab Melaka is not a familiar places, we decided to stay hotel yang dekat dengan Peringgit. We chose Hang Tuah Hotel, ok la untuk just tido semalam dan bersekejapan. If nak rehat leasuring, tak berapa nak suggest la.. hehee.. Lepas check in semua, we went to the Night Safari Zoo Melaka. Saja bawak anak2 and nak bagi diorang penat skit sebab both pun sleep all the way, so bila bangun both pun segar bugar. The Zoo was nice, we kinda like it very much. The tiger was active and awake so, kids was so enjoy. Dan balik dari Zoo, we makan asam pedas at the nearest place with the hotel. Sedap, I must say.

So, on the day, Mat drove me to the place, and then he and the kids went back to the hotel. We arrived a lil bit late. The crowd was huge amazingly, penuh dewan tu. And unlike the GCDC bazar, this time around I slot myself to meet and greet other sellers. Waktu GCDC bazaar, yang pertama nya memang tak sempat, and yang kedua, I admitted that I dont know how to mingle around .. hehee..

Event agak pantas, so instead of having to talk at 12noon, my slot was due at 11am. I dont prepare any slide. I just have this small paper, to guide me on what should I talk and Alhamdullillah, I can say that I've delivered. Orang dengar pun nampaknya tak bangun-bangun and mula2 I do the talk and demos kat bawah lantai, then the back crowd requested me to be on the stage sebab tak nampak. So I talk about half an hour and few supportive mama lend me their babies for the demos. Patung memang ada, but when I asked, ok, siapa nak anak dia jadik volunteer, some mamas very excited, so I just use their life-baby instead. :)




Itu adalah satu pengalaman yang paling berharga la, sepanjang setahun saya berkecimpung dengan babywearing dan penghasilan carriers. Thanks to Kelab Susuibu Melaka atas kepercayaan dan jemputan.

Berhubung dengan sales, unfortunately, I dont make any sales on that bazaar. Yang terjual pun adalah some of the clearance fabrics. But.. few customers did text me, kalo ada carrier tak terjual do lemme know ya, and as I was wrapping my booth, both sms masuk asking me ada extra carriers tak? And as for today, 5 out of the 6 carriers is now sold. Bercakap pasal rezeki, kalo Allah swt nk kasi tu dia akan kasi je: lambat, cepat, susah, senang.. itu kita kena usaha :)

Dan Alhamdullillah, dengan pengalaman mahal ini, I received an eml from one of my customer, inviting me to give another babywearing talk at her office. Subhanallah, masyaAllah.. Terasa macam, tak tahu mcmana nk berterima kasih lagi dengan Pencipta, Allah swt, di atas kemudahan rezeki ini.. ;`)

Semoga semua yang Kamu kurniakan kepada ku Ya Allah, masih menetapkan aku di jalan dan landasan yang betul (yelah, takut perkara-perkara ini akan melalaikan dan menjauhkan kita kepadaNya.. tak nak.. nauuzubillah..)

Ok, sekian sahaja. Thanks for reading :)

  4. Assalamualaikum. Tahniah kak,

    Allah nak bagi rezeki dalam cara yang kita tak terfikir kan. Alhamdulillah.

    Btw, boleh tak nak mintak tutorial jahit blouse atau jubah. Actually saya baru nak berubah kearahNYA dan mendekatkan diri dengan masjid. Dan pakaian yang menutup aurat amatlah limited.

    Mohon jasa baik akak. Semoga dipermudahkan jalan ini untuk kita semua. InsyaAllah.
