  1. Bunga Pahar Songket In Purple And Gold

    February 27, 2013 by admin

    (Please click on the picture to view a larger version)

    I finally managed to complete the order for these bunga pahar songket during Chinese New Year holiday. I have been working non stop since Christmas to make all the necessary materials. The assembling part took more time that I usually do for bunga stokin maybe because each piece has many ribbons, crystals, purple pearls and gold leaves.

    I hope the client will be happy having this at the pelamin during her wedding reception.


  2. Bunga Pahar Stokin White & Gold

    October 28, 2011 by admin

    Finally, after long hours put out for these lovely flowers, they were completed on Deepavali eve. Usually I will take about 2-3 months to complete 100 pieces of bunga pahar.

    This year I decided to take custom made order for bunga pahar after being in hiatus for almost 2 years. For those who still wonder what is bunga pahar, it is flower creation on stick that Malays usually give away to guests who come to their wedding. Usually on the dais (pelamin) where the the bride and groom will sit for bersanding, there will be two pahar on the right and left side of the pelamin.

    For those interested to order, it is RM8 per piece. The one in the picture consists of 35 pieces of bunga pahar. If you have 50 for each pahar, it will look nicer.


  3. Bunga Pahar Daun Getah Pink Hitam

    August 27, 2011 by admin

    A prospective client contacted me asking whether I could make a sample of bunga pahar daun getah with pink and black as the wedding color theme.

    It has been a while since I got supply of daun getah. After looking high and low, I finally found a supplier who was willing to do raw bunga daun getah. It was a smooth transaction and I really hope she will be able to continue making such flowers.

    Since I have never done anything black, it was quite tedious for me to scout for materials. I went to the nearest SSF and bought quite a lot of ribbons and organza in dark pink and black.

    So here is the first sample I made. I think I will do a few more samples with different color combination like silver and pink, cream and pink and white and pink just to see how they look like.

  5. Bunga Dulang Dip

    February 15, 2010 by admin

    This is the demo set for bunga dulang mini I made for my February bunga dip class. Actually this is the second one I made after I lost the first set. I was not sure whether any of my students took the first demo bunga dulang but since I have to have one to show to upcoming students, I quickly made one the night before the last class.

  6. Bunga Songket

    August 10, 2007 by admin


    I have to Google to find a good explanation on what is songket. Songket is a type of hand-woven traditional Malay fabric with gold and silver threads and worn mainly during official functions and ceremonies. I am fortunate to know someone whose family business is songket weaving.

    She decided to go further and make use of the songket the business has and innovate it to something that more practical and widely used in Malay wedding business. We came out with this idea of bunga pahar using songket fabric crafted into the flower petals.

    If you read my previous entry, in Malay wedding, bunga pahar are given to guests as souvenirs. So there are actually many designs of bunga pahar flower, some made from nylon, dip solution, beads, ribbons, organza and satin, just as much one’s creativity can stretch to.

    So here is the songket bunga pahar recently made. Apart from this I also created corsages and bigger stalk of flowers to decorate hantaran using songket. Some of the samples were published in Vol.3 – Ratu Sehari – bridal magazine sold in Malaysia. Of course it doesn’t go under my brand since my friend is the one who pay for the advertisement..haha!


  7. The Gold Cream Nylon Flower

    April 15, 2007 by admin

    It’s very common in Malay wedding to see bunga pahar at the side of the dais where the bride and groom will sit for the merenjis ceremony.

    This one in gold and cream nylon bunga pahar is requested recently by a client for her sister’s wedding. In Malay community in Malaysia, it is very normal for the whole big family to get involved in one’s wedding.

    This bunga pahar will be fillled with boiled egg put in tulle and tied with ribbon. This bunga pahar will be put in a special vase, usually 50 sticks each side. During the merenjis ceremony, each special guest and family who takes part in the ceremony (a blessing for the couple) will be given this bunga pahar as a souvenir.

    Nowadays instead of boiled eggs certain people choose to change it with potpourri, chocolates or candies. It was believed that the eggs symbolize fertility and people who attend the wedding and are given the bunga pahar with eggs will pray and hope that the couple will be blessed with many children throughout the marriage.


  8. Completing The Rose

    March 29, 2007 by admin

    You have managed to make the middle part of the rose by following the steps in arranging the petals. Now we will proceed to complete the rose.

    Using the curvy shaped petals, put it on every side of the middle bud of the rose. One tips is to put in between two petals so that the new petal wouldn’t be overlapping the existing petals.

    rdiyzm21.jpg

    After you have put about 3 curvy petals around the middle part, tie them with wire no.28 and wrap using the brown floral tape. This is to make sure that your rose will look nice without the white wire no.28 visible once the whole rose has been completed.

    rdiyzm22.jpg

    Continue to put other curvy petals around the rose until you satisfied with the size and the look of your rose. Repeat the process of tying and wrapping with floral tape.

    rdiyzm23.jpg

    Usually a medium size rose will have about 11-13 petals inclusive the middle bud. You have to rearrange the petals once you have tied and wrapped them with floral tape to make sure you have a satisfactory looking nylon rose.

    You have made your first rose by learning and following all the steps online.

  9. Arranging The Petals

    March 29, 2007 by admin

    From the last section of shaping the flower petals, we have made two types of petals – one with the curvy shape and another one like a folded bud.

    rdiyz16.jpg

    Take the folded bud and put in the middle. Take the curvy shaped petal and hold at the right side of the folded bud.

    rdiyz17.jpg

    Take another curvy shaped petal and put on the left side. Hold those petals tightly because we are going to tie them up using the flower wire no. 28.

    rdiyz18.jpg

    This is how it will look like once you have tied the petals with flower wire.

    rdiyz19.jpg

    Wrap the part where you tied earlier with floral tape in brown color.

    You have made the middle part of a rose. Good job!


  10. Shaping The Flower Petals

    March 29, 2007 by admin

    This will show you how we shape the wire loop into flower petals.

    rdiyz11.jpg

    Using the round shape wire loop which has been wrapped with nylon material, we will proceed to the next step of shaping the petals. Using your fingernails, pinch a bit at the wire. Try to imagine how the petal curves look like.

    rdiyz12.jpg

    After you have pinched every right and left side of the wire loop, it will look like this.

    rdiyz13.jpg

    Take another wrapped wire, this time we will fold it inside.

    rdiyz14.jpg

    Fold the left side into the right side or the vice versa, as long as the petal looks like a middle bud of a rose.

    rdiyz15.jpg

    This is how the folded petal looks like.

    We will continue with arranging the petals to form a rose.
