I'm In!

I’m participating in the Pay-it-Forward initiative.The first 5 people who comment on this status with “I’m in” will receive a surprise from me at some point in this calendar year – anything from a sweet dessert, a lovely CD, a ticket, a book or just absolutely any surprise I see fit!There will be no warning and it will happen when I find something that I believe would suit you and make you happy! These 5 people must make the same offer in their status (FB or Path or Twitter, etc.) and distribute their own joy. Simply copy this text onto your profile, (don’t share) so we can form a web of connection and kindness. Let’s do more nice and loving things for each other in 2014, without any reason other than to make each other smile and show that we think of each other. Here’s to a more enjoyable, more friendly and love-filled year! Pertama kali baca paragraf di atas dari blognya Mba Fitri, gegara si mbak @bagindaratu ini share di instagram. Dan setelah baca postingannya *sambil ngangguk-ngang…

From Indonesia Fashion Week (IFW) 2014: Revealing Innocence

Gambar
Assalaamualaikum, Hi, guys! You may remember from my last post that about two weeks ago I was very ill. Well, thank God I was recovered  just when Indonesia Fashion Week (IFW) 2014 was started ;)
Just like IFW 2013, Friday on fashion week means muslim brands and muslim designers on runway. I got two invitations for the 7.30 pm show. I drove from our house in Depok and picked up Hubby from his office at Sudirman area at 4 pm. There were some traffic jams but we managed to get to the venue by 5 pm.

Since we still have a few hours until the fashion show, I decided to come to Laiqa magazine and Hijup booth. My article was published on the newest edition of Laiqa and so it's just nice to drop by and with the hope that I could meet Mrs. Hanna Faridl or Mrs. Fifi Alvianto and say hi. 
They're not around when I got into the booth. Instead, I met the multi-talented designer Dian Pelangi with her bestfriend, Lulu Elhasbu of Zaura Models! Yeay! Big Yeay! 
Dian and Lulu were so humble and frie…

My Article on Laiqa

Gambar
On December, I wrote an article for Laiqa magazine. I love this magz because it's not just a magazine for muslimah. They have articles about styles, Islam, and many things. The other things I love about Laiqa is the beautiful photos, the wide shape, the lay-out and the not-so-mature but beautiful designs. 
As you may already know, I am a Communication Bachelor. I was studying journalism and there were times in my life when I wrote for national news papers and magazine. On the end of 2008 I decided to be a banker and took Management Trainee program in one of the  national private banks. I spent almost 4 years at banking industry and so there were some years I spent without writing. 
When I started this blog on September 2012, I already chose my path to be a stay at home mom. I never thought I would love writing again (and this much). So when my article was published, I'm so happy. Because I'm an independent blogger, not a journalist.
The 7th edition of Laiqa is featuring Hanum…

My Pink Chocolate

Seperti yang pernah gw ceritakan sebelumnya, sekitar 2 minggu lalu gw sakit. Sakitnya lama sampe semingguan. Udah banyak banget antrian postingan di draft yang minta ditulis tapi belum sempat.  Jadi bener ya ternyata, happy wife means happy family. Karena ketika istri/ibu sakit, keluarga pun jadi ga stabil. Rumah berantakan, makan pake katering, kulkas kosong, dan cucian menumpuk. 
Pengalaman sakit kemarin juga benar-benar ga enak. 2-3 hari nggak enak tidur. Lelah tapi ngga bisa istirahat, maklum yah gapake ART. Salah satu konsekuensi memilih gapunya ART ya begini, kalo pas sakit ga bisa benar-benar istirahat. Hehehe...
Hari itu tanggal 14 februari biasa aja dari pagi. Emang kita ga pernah ngerayain valentine juga, ga pernah mikir itu hari yang penting buat dirayakan. Lagipula gw lagi sakit parah-parahnya. 
Sore-sore sekitar jam setengah 6 biasanya Hubby udah sampe rumah. Tapi hari itu udah mau maghrib dia belum pulang padahal keretanya normal ga ada gangguan. Di wasap jam setengah 6 ga …

Quote for The Day

You do not need to know precisely what is happening,  or exactly where it is all going.  What you need is to recognize the possibilities and challenges offered by the present moment,  and to embrace them with courage, faith and hope.

Comfy

Comfy top, comfy pants, comfy shoes. 
When it comes to clothing, I always believe in the comfy feeling when I try them on. I believe in the comfy feeling because I believe that is the feeling that will make me want to wear that piece for the second times, third times, and maybe it will last for a year or two. Who knows?
I mean, how many times we bought some fashion pieces and end up not wearing them or wear them only once or twice?


Two Days in a Row with Yogie

Gambar
Assalaamualaikum,  Hi Guys! How are you doing? I'm very ill these past few days. Ga bisa keluar rumah itu cukup menyebalkan. Dari hari Minggu ga kemana-mana kecuali ke dokter. Dan dari Senin makannya pesen katering teh Nining. Ada yang kenal ga hayoo sama katering Teh Nining di Depok. Hehehe.. jadi promosi katering ini mah.

Tadi siang gw telpon ortu di Tasik dan ngeluh sakit.
Kata Papap, "Udah, kalo sakit yang sabar. Itu artinya diakuin jadi umat (Nabi Muhammad SAW)."
"Iya," kata gw.
"Fir'aun tu ga pernah sakit. Kalo kita mah sakit, masih diaku umat." Lanjutnya. 
"Mhahaha... tau dari mana?" 
Gw tepok jidat. Tau dari mana coba Bokap, mungkin kan emang ga pernah ditulis sejarah aja gitu kalo Fir'aun lagi kena pilek xD. Hahaha..

Okay, enough with my illness. Anggap saja gw lagi belajar ikhlas nih. Moga-moga cepet sembuh. Aamiin...

Nah, sekarang gw mau share tentang sobat gw yang baru Wisuda. Temen gw ini namanya Yogie, kita udah temenan dari jam…

Save The Date! Indonesia Fashion Week 2014

Hi, Guys!
A few weeks ago, Yogie, a reporter and a best friend of mine, remind me that Indonesia Fashion Week (IFW) 2014 is coming! Yeay!
We both did come to IFW 2013 last year, and I posted about it right here. Many things to see at the event. They've got fashion shows, seminars, book launching, and so on. Go to www.indonesiafashionweek.com to see the complete schedule and details.
Coming to this event, is not just about shopping or admiring the fashion and stuffs. Of course girls love shopping. But I always think that when we see fashion week, we see our culture, we see our own trends and what's going on, we see how fashion people see us. You know, we see ourselves. It's good to have our own local taste identity and be proud of it. And it's good to see how these fashion people show us how in their own way.

The trends of online shopping these 3 to 5 years alone shows us that people can create trends in local fashion and now we buy more products created by Small Medium Ent…

Main Sensory Play: Bermain-main dengan Play Doh, Yuk!

Gambar
Assalaamualaikum, Hi Guys! Today I want to share an activity my daughter I do together: Playing with Play-Doh!
It was started when I download Sophia The First songs on YouTube and I found some tutorials to make doll clothes by using play doh. The tutorials were soooo cute! My daughter loves them and so one night we went to the mall and bought several cans of Play Doh. 
My daughter loves playing dress up with her doll, and she like it even more when she found out she can make the dress out of play doh by herself! She loves rolling and flatten the doh, and wrap them on her dolls. She loves making them shoes too, and with my help, of course xD.
Here are some photos of our work,
