Happy Mother’s day for you who celebrate it…! As for me, I didn’t get my me time, massage, flowers, or whatsoever, in fact it was a busy time that day since we had a little celebration for Azka and Khalif with our Indonesian friends. On Saturday, I cooked nearly 9 hours straight, without resting my legs… Read More Syukuran
We had our family spring “photo session” last week – the day before Azka’s birthday. We just randomly passing through some potential locations nearby. Fortunately, just a few blocks from our apartment, we found this house with a big magnolia tree. And at the back of that house was an empty house, so it’s a perfect… Read More Under The Magnolias

I always love to blend with the locals… Read More Thanksgiving

Yang ada… Read More Boston Common and Public Garden
Spent the evening before Ramadhan at the East beach. You can tell who’s having fun from the pics (hint: not the kids).
I must admit that I hate any “Hallmark” occasions like this (yesterday was Mother’s Day), because even for any good reason it won’t make any difference from any other days for me; sad but true. Even occasions like birthdays and anniversary are not that special too, because the only thing that make it special is just… Read More Mother’s Day
