When in Bangkok……

A must visit is to Chatuchak weekends market. You can find array of different items for yourself and for around the house. The choice is endless but keep the day free as it may take hours before you are done shopping!!!




Artisan Spotlight: Hiffycakes

Have a read through an article featuring my hand made designs by handmadearoundtheglobe!

Handmade Around The Globe

First off, tell us about yourself! My name is Hifza Mohammed, I’m originally from London but moved to Kuala Lumpur in 2013 when my husband got a job here. I started attending leather workshop as a hobby and I fell in love with it. The craft allows me to be creative and think of new ways to put leather designs together.

imageHow did you start creating your artwork, and how long have you been doing it?

Only in recent months I have started making purses and wallets and giving them to friends as gifts. I’ve been asked many times if I make bags and when I say, ‘its only a hobby’ they convinced me otherwise.

In November I opened shop ‘Hiffycakes’ , handmade leather bags & accessories. All my collection is made in my studio in KL and each bag is designed & hand sewn using the best quality materials.

Happy New Year!!!

Firstly,  A very Happy New Year to everyone!! As you may know from my last post that I am in Sydney. So I spent the day meeting up with friends and heading to the park to watch the fire works. May I just add that I have never seen a queue as long as this one but to be fair it was well organised.

Once in you have to get your place quickly, as there are plenty of other people behind you who are trying to do the same thing. You can take food with you but there’s plenty of choice when your inside the park. Lots of food and drink vendors with good variety of selections.

After lounging and catching up with friends the count down begins and it’s a carnival vibe with music, singing and cheering!

Once the fore world start, its a magical scene. It’s so mesmerising and it takes you to your childhood.

Wonderful night and one to remember!!!
