if it's not edible ..

often in my place, we're used to bunga pahar (yeap, the one with lidi itu) as doorgift for VIPs (for my case just close relatives), additional to usual egg-giving. i am hoping to break off this tradition as pretty bunga pahar doesnt come cheap nowadays. for such cost, i'm expecting something useful to be kept by special guests rather than just a deco at the end of the day.

one of them i found during the trip to Jakarta - a hardcovered doa selawat with couple name printing, and they packaged in a nice box too. a little pricey tapi sangat2 bermanfaat, kan. i've seen similar idea locally, they give a plain Yaasin. nothing fancy tapi berguna esp di malam Jumaat :)


tasbih is my favourite of all non-edible doorgift. apart from being handy, again it's something useful. easier to keep too - gantung je :) but do consider cost of packaging too and please note both gifts only sesuai for Muslim guests.

somehow i know getting ibu's buy-in is nooot that easy. not that she doesn't like the stuffs. she's just not used to go against tradition, that's all.

sorry jasmin, i dont have any publisher to recommend. but u can try Wisma Yakin/ masjid india area as they're sought after for religious stuffs, i believe they can recommend a good one for u :)

for cheap printing, you can try jln pudu area.
