When a candy is more than just a candy & when your life, is more than just alive...

Awhile ago, i shared with reader what motivated me and why i started blogging. After reading it, i have friends who came down just to take a look at my lolly girl Izzati, but due to her many commitment (overseas trip to do opening of cafe, giving speech at camps, overseas visitation etc), a lot of my friends missed the chance to see her in person. Honestly, we being having a crazy and busy month during the school holiday with people buying the lollies off the shelves faster than our staff can pack and refill it on the shelf.... hence all of us at my little lolly shop miss Zati VERY MUCH too, since her presence always means the whole shop will be in proper order. period.
(You really have to read the previous blog to know how strong this girl is and what went thru with this little girl and her attitude towards life.... She was diagnosed with a terminal cancer which doctor says she have at most 2-3months of life during March this year... and still, she is pressing on... )

Nevertheless, life is moving on for her.. At the moment I writing this blog, she came back from an overseas commitment and having herself down with stomach pain and fever that never seems subsides, hence she is at A&E now. But don't worry... before she goes A&E, she is strong enough to drop by to say hi to us at my little lolly shop... strong girl indeed. And of course, she here to collect some of the Zati.Lolly to be given out free to those who bought her book "Izzati; My Amazing Journey"...

Still not too late to order from her if you are keen... email her personally at zati@lollytalk.com
She had her book launched few weeks ago with a press event...
And among the guests... Mr Teo Ser Luck and actress cum business lady Apple Hong was presence too. Of course, the launch will never be complete without her family around...
And Zati had a wonderful day signing all the books for her fans...
And if you happened to email her to buy her book, don't be shy... tell her what you want her to autograph for you on the book. Be it a motivational words or be it a  little note for your loved ones, according to her, she will be more than happy to do it.


And officially, at my little lolly shop (also known as LollyTalk), we started selling her lollies.. yes... HER lolly. The series is known as Zati.Lolly by LollyTalk in collaboration with Nur Izzati Bte Kamisan... in short... "Zati.Lolly".
The whole series is designed by her and plan by her from the choice of colours, design, flavours, message... even to the details of the packaging is under her direction. When asked... what is Zati.Lolly all about... she says "Is about cherishing your life, dreaming big, accomplish your dream and love yourself and love your life".... in short... "A Celebration of Life"...
So... "Zati.Lolly; A celebration fo Life"

This series consist of 6 design. 


Can't start introducing the 6 designs without mentioning this one...
The first one "Love Zati"...
The flavour chosen is Sugarcane Lemon. Yes... something new. Never try mixing this flavour before but I find it a very nice pleasant flavour.  I also find the flavour very appropriate since sugarcane is a very strong plant (yes, it is a strong plant hence whenever i hear people talking about "organic sugar", i can't help but feel that is too marketing gimmicky), just like Zati is a strong girl... and mixing with the lemon gives you a bit of tangy taste which just like Zati's character... out of her strong self, she is a bit witty and fun going. The flavour itself is also very localised, just like we love to drink sugarcane squeezing a slice of lemon in it (and that uncle charge S$0.50 extra just for that slice of lemon... opppss....wrong topic here).

Beside "Love Zati" lolly, we have "Love Life" lolly...
When asking Zati what flavour to use... she says she want something sweet because life is sweet. Hence we chosen Strawberry Peach. Partly because that flavour is what we used to make "Double Happiness" lolly (something used in wedding favors) in my little lolly shop... hence we associate that flavour to sweetness too. And yes... Zati still think life is sweet and never blame life.

We have one that says "BIG DREAM" or it can read "DREAM BIG"...

She wants the youth to cherish their life. Love themselves and at the same time dare to dream big and having big dreams. The lolly reads both ways intentionally. And the flavour she chosen is... Peppermint. She mentioned to us a few weeks ago how her classmates love the peppermint when brought to school LollyTalk's "COOL" lolly which happens to be peppermint flavour. In this little act of choosing flavour, you can tell how Zati always think about those around her too... a very considerate girl indeed.

And in the mix, we have "BELIEVE"... yes... big dream, dream big... and BELIEVE you can do it!

And "BELIEVE" lolly is in green!! Zati's favourite colour.

And in this mix, we have also the rainbow pillow and rainbow smiley...

Very appropriate to have the rainbow pillow and rainbow smiley since Zati is always so bright, so cheerful and so colourful in her life.

Even the packaging is following her original concept...with the personalised 32mm round sticker label adapted from her design... "Life is Beautiful"...

but of course, we added a little more information. And without say... the design was guided by Zati herself too...



Part of the proceeds will goes to Zati in her fight against cancer as well as her medical bills.
