    What kind of cool drink do you make? From fresh fruit or some of the Indonesian sweet drink with jelly?
    I wish you the best, if you can resign from your job for this business, that will be very good.

    Just be aware of the "excitement of a new product" even if it's not really new, for most of customer a new packaging is enough for they can consider it "new".
    But after a short time it fall down.

    My wife always offer "new recipe" every week or 2 for keep the "new product" excitement in our customer.

    good luck with your business
    i was trying to whatsapp your wife, asked for the cake, apparently she was busy, eventually i baked my own cake hahahah

Almost all tables are full, mostly by bules. The interior is old, wooden theme. Yeah I like this place, now I am so lazy to get back to work lol

    I have this small cool drink counter at one of a mall here, and a couple of weeks ago, someone from rather big company proposed and offered me to participate in their annual event, Family gathering and Jalan Sehat that took place just yesterday. They ordered 200 cups on a signed contract and we should be ready at subuh at the venue. The event itself started at about 5.30.

    Ever since we got there, its been a non stop production of our product. Buyers even queue in a very long line. And I was standing for about 5 hours working on their orders on 2 blenders. I was helped by 2 staffs, my sister in law and my 10 yo girl. 200 cups were gone in about 3 hours, and luckily I brought another 200 cups which also sold out in another hour.

    It was a blast, the company owner even came to my booth asking what is it that we sell, that made such a long queue. It was fantastic, and tiring ! If everyday is like that, I will need to resign from my day job !

    It's assumed that you use the same cooking utensils for your daily menu, in any process of baking.

    I hope you find more clients. Good luck for the business.

    Even once my mom was asked whether the cashew and peanut she made contained pork-oil or not. Like, how come? Or Why would we do so? -_-
    The reason was something like: the one who cook is not muslim so it's haram

    Their is a rule about animal who must be kill by a muslim... but it's all!
    And it's about the killing not the cooking!!!

    Like many already know me and my wife have a small (starting) food business.
    Ramadan have bring us some more customer and make us lose at least one that we know.

    She was not a direct contact, and they told us she don't buy anymore because because we are christian. My family in law are chinese and catholic, my and my wife are catholic as must as we don't have choice to be stamp by the gov with one of the approved religion.
    ... and you know, because we are "christian" our cake must not be Halal.

    ???? What the fuck??? Since when a cake can be haram???

    More I live in Indo, more I realize that most of people know very little about their own religion...
