Freebie Friday #02 - My Reading Log January 22 2016

Reading can be a daunting task for some kids. Let's make it enjoyable for them!

The first step is to allocate a reading corner/space that is conducive and comfortable enough for a good read. Decorate the space with colourful cushions and informative charts. We recommend our 'Good Reader' poster for your reading corner!

A Good Reader Poster can be purchased here. Available in English and Malay.

Once the space has been done up, keep track of your child's reading with this reading log. Download this FREE printable reading log and get them hooked on books! (Right-click on image and 'Save Target As...')

Available in English...

...and MALAY!

Reward your child's effort of completing this task with a small token.

We recommend our Super Reader reward cards set...

Super Reader reward cards set can be purchased here. Available in English and Malay.

Button badges are currently not available.

Hope these simple tips will ignite the love for reading in your children!

Balik Kampung! @ Sekolah Rendah Qifa August 30 2015

One of the more popular educational programmes Cak Cak Kuti conducts will be The Good Old Times. Appropriately launched in conjunction with Singapore's SG50 campaign this year, we take a journey to the past with our traditional games. This programme can be conducted in English or Malay and is suitable or people of all ages.

Qifa Primary School was our venue for this exciting programme where the children take part in games like Bola Tin, Lereng, Tapak Kuda and Guli. In addition to that, they were also in for a treat at The Mama Shop where they get to learn more and also purchase old school snacks and toys. Read on to know more about the experience!

***

22 July 2015 - Balik Kampung!

Gelanggang Qifa telah menjadi medan pertarungan kelmarin dalam pelbagai permainan tradisional. Bukanlah pertarungan yang berakhir dengan pertumpahan darah tetapi pertarungan sengit antara siapakah yang dapat membaling, menolak dan mengimbang dengan sebaiknya.

Murid-murid telah dibahagikan kepada kumpulan dan secara bergilir-gilir mengambil bahagian dalam pelbagai permainan tradisional Melayu.

Guli

Permainan guli adalah antara permainan yang digemari ramai kerana ianya murah dan mudah didapati sehingga kini. Kami menyediakan pangalaman yang autentik kepada murid-murid dan mengajarkan cara permainan sebelum murid-murid sendiri yang mencubanya.

Pemudah cara Cak Cak Kuti menunjukkan cara bermain guli sebelum murid-murid mencuba permainan ini.

Bola Tin
Permainan tradisional seperti Bola Tin ini menjana kemahiran membaling bola ke arah sasaran. Murid-murid juga diberi peluang untuk menyusun semula tin-tin kosong untuk pemain yang seterusnya. Ini dapat memupuk nilai kerjasama antara rakan-rakan sepasukan.

Seorang murid menyusun tin-tin kosong dengan bantuan pemudah cara.

Lereng

Lereng adalah antara permainan yang paling jarang dilihat dan dimainkan. Oleh sebab itulah Cak Cak Kuti mengambil kesempatan ini untuk memperkenalkan dan mengekalkan permainan ini kepada generasi akan datang supaya ianya tidak pupus begitu sahaja.

Permainan lereng yang memerlukan daya perhatian yang kuat supaya lerengnya tidak tersasar dari laluan yang ditetapkan.

Tapak Kuda

Permainan ini adalah antara permainan yang paling digemari murid-murid. Ramai yang tidak ketahui wujudnya permainan ini dan agak terperanjat apabila diberitahu bahawa hanya kelapa dan tali sahaja yang diperlukan. Konsep permainan ini juga agak baharu bagi mereka. Yang pasti, mereka kelihatan sangat seronok bermain permainan Tapak Kuda ini.

Untuk keselamatan murid dan harta benda sekolah, Cak Cak Kuti telah mengambil langkah berjaga-jaga dengan mengalas lantai dengan kain rentang dan menggantikan tempurung kelapa kepada perkakas yang lebih licin permukaannya dan tidak mudah retak.

Kedai Mama Cak Cak Kuti

Tidak sah kalau kami membawa murid Balik Kampung tanpa mengenalkan mereka dengan makanan ringan dan permainan yang digemari dahulu. Pemudah cara kami bersedia untuk menerangkan sedikit sebanyak mengenai barangan yang disediakan di Kedai Mama kami. Murid-murid juga boleh membeli barangan-barangan tersebut dengan harga yang sangat berpatutan!

Para pelanggan cilik kami yang terpegun dengan pelbagai makanan ringan dan permainan yang kami sediakan di Kedai Mama kami.

Secara kesluruhan, kami percaya pengalaman yang diraih murid-murid dalam berseronok sambil belajar ini tidak akan dapat dilupakan.

Ayuh bersama kami dalam mengekalkan tradisi lama Melayu dan memberikan generasi yang akan datang peluang untuk ketahui budaya kami yang kaya lagi relevan.

Cabaran X @ Sekolah Rendah Qifa August 23 2015

Recently, Cak Cak Kuti had the honour of conducting our first educational programme since the launch on Semester 2 2015 at Qifa Primary School. We were chosen to be a part of the school's Mother Tongue Language Fortnight. The Amazing Race program was conducted in the Malay Language for the Primary 5 Malay students. Judging from the testimonials and happy faces, we know that the program has reached its objective in inculcating the love of the language in a fun and engaging way.

Read more about the experience and view the pictures in the blog post below.

***

Cak Cak Kuti baru melancarkan program-program pendidikan pada penggal kedua 2015. Kami berbesar hati kerana telah dipilih pihak Jabatan Bahasa Melayu Qifa untuk mengendalikan program-program kami di sekolah tersebut baru-baru ini.

Sempena Dwi-minggu Bahasa Ibunda (MTL Fortnight), Cak Cak Kuti telah menjalankan dua program menarik bagi murid-murid darjah 3 dan 5. Ayuh lihat aksi murid-murid Qifa berseronok sambil belajar bersama Cak Cak Kuti!

20 July 2015 - Cabaran X

Permulaan permainan Cabaran X.

Murid-murid terbahagi kepada kumpulan dan setiap kumpulan dikehendaki menyelesaikan cabaran di setiap stesen. Cabaran X menguji kepintaran dan kepantasan murid-murid dalam menyelesaikan cabaran bahasa, budaya dan permainan Melayu.

Seorang murid mencuba kemahiran mancampakkan bola pada sasarannya dalam permainan Bola Tin di salah sebuah stesen Cabaran X.

Di stesen ini, murid-murid mempelajari cara membuat bunga rampai yang menjadi suatu kewajipan dalam acara-acara keramian kaum Melayu.

Tanpa daya penglihatan, dapatkah rakan-rakan murid ini bantu mencapai kantung misteri?

Apakah agaknya yang diisyaratkan murid ini ya?

Murid-murid Darjah 5 Qifa yang berjaya menyahut Cabaran X.

Melalui program pendidikan ini, murid-murid dapat memperkaya bahasa dan budaya Melayu sambil berseronok.

Terima kasih para guru dan murid Sekolah Rendah Qifa. Sehingga kita bertemu lagi!

Event - Flea Market @ Bukit Batok Civil Service Club June 26 2015

Cak Cak Kuti is proud to bring you our inaugural flea market, jointly organised with Civil Service Club @ Bukit Batok. Held on the weekend of 13-14 June 2015, we gathered 30 like-minded entrepreneurs who sold products from apparels to stationery, a myriad of cakes and desserts and also had talented vendors doing caricatures and henna services to our patrons!
A HUMONGOUS THANK YOU goes to the people who made it down to the flea come rain or shine. With families in tow, some even spanning three generations, from as far as Tampines and Pasir Ris... It really warms our hearts seeing the effort and support given to our entrepreneurs.

Your support is greatly appreciated and we hope to see you again in our next event.

Love love love everyone!

And of a MASSIVE THANK YOU to all 30 vendors for making the Flea Market at Bt Batok CSC a success. Without your support, none of this would've happen.
We hope that this event could be a platform for your business to reach out to a bigger market and achieve greater heights.

Thank you for the support given.
Thank you for the friendships forged.
Thank you for making it happen.

Till we meet again!

2014 Closing Speech November 26 2014

Cak Cak Kuti was founded in 2013 and was only officially established in January 2014. When I took the plunge to quit my stable full-time job to officially establish Cak Cak Kuti early this year, I got some people worried, myself included. Hehe! But being the risk taker that I am, I saw the opportunity and was not about to let it pass, even if it meant going into this alone.

Cak Cak Kuti was set up purely out of passion and fulfilling the needs of educators, with a dream so big it may seem impossible. But as they say, the word IMPOSSIBLE itself says I'M POSSIBLE.

In 1 year, Cak Cak Kuti boasts an array of educational products which includes:
52 stamps
34 posters
7 stickers set
6 reward cards set

Sold over:
3000 customised notebooks
150 customised stamps
100 fasting charts

Events which includes:
16 school visits
3 booth setups
2 charity events

And Cak Cak Kuti have no plans to stop there. Our unofficial motto would probably be "Either GO BIG or go home."

Sometimes you have to stop worrying, wondering, and doubting. Have faith that things will work out, maybe not how you planned, but just how it’s meant to be.

So before Cak Cak Kuti closes for the year to go for a well-deserved break and into 2015 planning (excited much!), I would like to extend my heartfelt thanks to those schools/organisations that had put in their trust and support in Cak Cak Kuti.

THANK YOU to...

Event - Cak Cak Kuti Goes Back to School! March 29 2014

Cak Cak Kuti had our inaugural event at the NIE Bazaar recently. The 3-day bazaar was held from 19th Feb 2014 at the National Institute of Education, my alma mater. Stepping back into that place after 8years was so surreal. That familiar feeling was met with a tinge of pride and joy for having gone through 2 memorable years there. I missed that place...
 
...and the food! Hehe!
  
So anyway, back to the bazaar.
 
Since it was our first ever meet-in-the-flesh kinda event, we didn't know what to expect or whether we had brought enough stocks. Turns out, some of our products were so popular they ran out on the first day! Even our biz cards ran out too! Haha! Lucky for us, our supplier agreed (with much nagging under his breath) to rush our orders and we managed to replenish our stocks on the third day of the event.
 
 
 
 
 
 
During that event, we met with an overwhelming crowd. Many friendly people and many familiar faces from IG and FB. It was such an awesome experience where we got to meet some of you ardent fans! Hehe..
From the bottom of heart, I would like to say a big THANK YOU to each and every one of you who made time to drop by and for all your purchases. I know there are those who really wanted to come down to NIE but couldn't, due to whatever reason (I know because you have been texting me on FB, IG, SMS, WA etc and sorry for any late response as we were kept so busy during that 3 days), I promise there will be more 'meet-and-greet' sessions to come. Hehe!
 
Thank you to my family who helped out at the booth. Because of your presence I got to set up the booth in a presentable manner and also managed to have lunch and toilet breaks in between. So thankful for that!
Thank you to friends who not only showed their support by dropping by, but who also made purchases, helped market Cak Cak Kuti's products and delivered ice-cold vanilla latte just for me!!! Such awesome friends I have!
We look forward to more events like this in the future and aim to provide the best products in the market!
 
See you again soon!
xoxo,
Liza

Hear Ye! Hear Ye! February 12 2014

Welcome to my humble blog at cakcakkuti.com!
I would like to say a big THANK YOU to each and every one of you who has given me your never ending support all this while. When I first started this business, it was mainly to cater to the Malay teachers who find it extremely hard to find Malay Language resources and materials for the students. Well, I would know because I was a teacher myself.
 
 
I remember having to go to JB to search for charts and decoratives in Malay. It was such a big hassle, having time to go only on a weekend and the perpetual jam at the causeway. Oh the horror!
 

So back to Cak Cak Kuti. From just posters and stickers in 2013, Cak Cak Kuti reopened with a big comeback in 2014 and quickly escalated to carrying a variety of products in both Malay and English language. All the products in Cak Cak Kuti are designed and produced by yours truly so be rest assured they are unique and fun, with students and teachers in mind.
 

The Good News
So, in appreciation of your support all this time, I would like YOU to be among the first to know this very exciting piece of news!
Cak Cak Kuti will be having a booth at the NIE bazaar next week!
YES!
We are gonna be in the flesh! We're going back to school! Wheee...!

At the booth, look forward to Cak Cak Kuti's vast range of products. I'm pretty sure there'll be something that'll tickle your fancy! Furthermore, I will also have new products that are yet to be launched online. So be among the first to grab them!

Wanna hear more good news?
When you purchase at the booth, not only will you save on postage fees, you are also entitled to more discounts! Simply save or print the coupon below, flash it during your purchase and we'll give you a 10% discount!
