Friends Reunited : Makan di Remboelan Indonesia Soul Resto, Plaza Senayan

Last Sunday I met my best friends that I haven't met since 1,5 year ago. They are Ajeng and Freshty. We were in the same Management Trainee program at one of the private banks in Indonesia on 2008.The thing I love the most about the program is how my eyes opened wide to see the business in another perspective, and of course, the friendships. We spent 6 months together on the program and after the program ended, we live in the same house until I got married on 2010. 
In the first three months of the program, Ajeng and I shared the same room. Ajeng and I used to asked for a white thick blanket because the weather is always cold in Puncak, Bogor. And we used to wrap ourselves in the blanket like a caterpillar. And so that's why we called it the caterpillar blanket. Hahaha..
Ajeng and Freshty were the only MT friends I had on my wedding day. I held my wedding at my hometown, Tasik, so that many friends couldn't come because it's quite far from Jakarta. But they did come. Tha…

Independence Day : Serunya Merayakan Hari Kemerdekaan


A few days ago we had some competitions and games held in our neighbourhood to celebrate the independence  day. There are ping pong games, eating kerupuk, volley ball, chess game, and so on. 
It was fun to have many friends from our block gathered in one place and enjoy the games. Unfortunately, I brought my camera only on Sunday morning, so I don't have the whole pictures of the event. Here are the pictures I took that day.

We had some cute spectators too :),

Wassalaamualaikum :).

Bloggers Meeting Up!

Assalaamualaikum, Hi Girls, how's your weekend? I had a fun week with friends. It's Monday already and I have many stories and photos to post! Hehehe... but I'll post it one at a time.
So last Wednesday I met up with three blogger friends at CITOS. I just love when bloggers meeting up. I met Yeye, Ayu, and Bu Pipit. Bu Pipit is actually lives at the same neighbourhood with me and we went to the same Islamic studies so I meet her every week at the very least. She was the one that I know Kumpulan Emak-Emak Blogger (KEB) from and we sometimes hang out together. 
I met Yeye and Ayu at the Road to ASEAN Blogger Festival 2013 at the Indonesia Foreign Affairs Ministry a few months ago. We have nearly the same age and we are all new moms.
It's funny when we were meeting up because we're all have little kiddos. We shared stories about parenting, blogging, instagrramming, and not to forget the diet. Hahaha... 

That day, Yeye shared how to make infused water from fruits that is so…


A few weeks ago I accompanied my sister looking for a dormitory house. She was accepted in PAAP Program Majoring Marketing Management Padjadjaran University and so she's officially a college student now. Congratulations neng! :D
Going around and about in Unpad Dipati Ukur and Jatinangor reminded me of my college life with my dear best friends: Nisa, Yogie, and Epoy. We were studying journalism and many times, we have to gather for the news for every project and assignment. Sometimes we're together, and sometimes there's just two or three of us. 
We all live in the same dormitory except nisa. But Nisa came to our place and sleepover very often so that really doesn't matter. Hehehe..And last but not least, we have Vetri too. On the third year she moved  to our dormitory and so we all became close with her. All of us love watching horror movies, especially the Japan horror movies. 
Nisa always says that horror movies is good because it has a catharsis function. It makes us e…

Inspirasi Hijab Outfit : O Is for Orange

Assalaamualaikum, It's Sunday night already and it's a little hard to gain more spirit after such a long holiday. Well, wherever we are I hope you and I will have extra energy to start the week in a good spirit :). Aamiin..
This is my OOTD for today. I'm combining pale colours, pale grey and white, with the orange scarf. I found the scarf about three or four moths ago and in love with the colour. Ever since I bought it, it seems that I'm trying to mix the scarf with as many as colours that I have in my closet. Hahaha... Just a splash of orange made my face look brighter so instantly.



Assalaamualaikum. Hi guys, how are you? It's 3.21 am now and I've been awake from 1 am to import some pictures and edit them. Hmm...I've been busy these last two months, and I miss blogging. I miss taking pictures with my camera and I miss blogwalking too. I miss everything I love and instagram was pretty good but I love my camera more. So happy that I can still awake right now to enjoy blogging. Because I usually fell asleep so easily. Hehehe..
Anyway, how was your Ramadhan? This year, Ramadhan felt different for me. I felt like I'm enjoying it and feel more peaceful. I hope I can make it through the next Ramadhan. And I hope I can keep the peaceful feeling from now on.
So, last Ramadhan we had an Iftar in our neighborhood. We always love iftar with our friends, don't we? We had an open tent set up near the kids playground and so we enjoy the air outdoor. We set our Maghrib prayer together in jamaah too and had a session about Ramadhan topics. I captured some moments…

Driving with Toddler : Bagaimana Mengemudi Saat Si Kecil Tantrum

It's been a pretty long time since I was thinking of writing this post. Well, finally I'm doing it. I've been driving my own car since February 2013. I have driving license since 2007 but I didn't have any guts to drive on the main streets. My parents encouraged me to learn to drive since I was in Junior High School, when I was about 13 years old. It didn't worked out. On 2007 I took a driving lesson again (that's how I got my first driving license). My Mom said I'm the biggest daughter and so I needed to be able to drive. Well, I still had no guts. I just didn't have that guts without my instructor sitting next to me. I once drove a car with my father at a narrow street and I think I drove too slowly. The cars behind me keep honking and I was panic. I stopped the car in the middle of the street and begging my father to drive  -_-". It was stupid. Hahaha...
So my mother had an idea to have another instructor to teach me to drive, and this time, usin…

Eid Mubarak!

Assalaamualaikum, I'd like to say Eid Mubarak to everyone of you who celebrate Eid Al-Fitr :). Selamat Idul Fitri, Teman-teman! Mohon maaf lahir batin ya :).
I know it's a little bit too late, but lately I used instagram more often rather than my DSLR camera. So I want to share some photos from my Eid day.
We celebrate the first day of Eid with my hubby's family in Bandung.On the Eid day I wore my old outfit, mermaid skirt and pink top to match my Bebe's new pink sarong and white kebaya :p

On the third day of Lebaran, we went to Tasik to visit my family. We stopped by at a cafe to buy some cappuccino and donuts. The beverage was buy one get one free from 6-10 am, Yeay! :D. 

We went on and there were some traffic jams but only in some spots.
Only about 30 minutes after we took the photos above, My Bebe asked me to rub her forehead gently and then she vomited :(. We stopped a while to clean her and change her clothes, and she fell asleep along the way.
We were arrived at Tasik…

Some Old Favorites

Assalaamualaikum.  Hi guys, how are you? I was just arrived at my home in Tasik. Yesterday we drove from Depok to Cimahi at 2 am and today we drove from Cimahi to Tasik at 3 am. Mudik (it's when people go back to their home to meet family and friends before Eid) is tiring, but it's always fun to have a longer holiday to spend time with our dearest families. There were traffic jams at some spots, but alhamdulillah we're arrived home savely. Are you going mudik? If you are, I hope you arrive home savely too :).
Yesterday I took some photos of my OOTD. This outfit is my old favorites. I got the scarf about 3 years ago from one of my office mate. I love the turquoise color and I mixed it with my Nabilia summer top (old).
