This is our 5th winter, and been an exceptional one compare to the previous years. One of the odd: the first snowfall occurred on October, the day after Halloween and one time during November (still autumn). After that, probably one or two times during December – even during Christmas week, all we got in our… Read More Winter Storm Juno
It’s hard to write something meaningful and positive when your mind is into something that is so daunting. I’ve meant to recap about this year’s highlights and plans in 2015, but my mind goes to AirAsia QZ8501 passengers and crew… (and other sad news that swirl around in the news). So I will just post some of… Read More The Bird, The Sky, and End of The Year

But this year I have more than two: I got to see my… Read More My Favorite Time of The Year is Now

I wish I could stop complaining about the continuous odd weather that… Read More Some Memories – Not To Be Forgotten Along Summertime
Terakhir kami pergi road trip berempat adalah dua tahun yang lalu – bersama Akiya dan Eni ke Niagara Falls. Ketika itu Khalif masih berusia 1.5 bulan (!). Setelah dipikir-pikir nekat juga ya bawa bocah masih merah – pergi jalan darat yang memakan waktu tempuh sekitar 14 jam (akibat nyasar dan banyak berhenti). But we made… Read More Maine Road Trip
Just had a spontaneous idea to make this lipstick stamped piece of “art”: because I got bored doing hand, feet, and potato stamped, why not lips-stamped?

Here are the list of happiness, lately… The day when (you are very tired and) your husband came home early Spending a beautiful springtime weather at the park And decided to bring our dinner outside at the picnic table And when you see above you, you could see the fluttering clouds of pink that came… Read More Happiness is….
