After we have a discussion again , all of us decided to use pink polka dot as our calender background .

Reason : 
Pink color is the most suitable color for dessert . Pink color represent sweet , women or young girls. When we talk about dessert , first sense is girly . Gals like to eat dessert , because the pink  polka dot background represent girly so we choose to use it . Besides , polka dots are so elegant which is suitable for dessert . The simple circles in the this picture make a wonderful background to our calender.  We want to make our calender simple , but not simply ~

Progress of Calendar Assignment

Click to enlarge.
Some points to note:
• On the left is the space for the images of our designated subject - desserts.
• Grids are used to provide users of the calendar some space to make notes on the day itself.
• Both Malaysian and international holidays will be included, and will be added to the bottom of the box of their respective dates.

Feel free to leave a comment or critique about the design! :)
