Will talk about that in a separate post, but I’d say I’m glad the weather is finally getting warmer today..! And since Mba Esti, Mas Afif and their children (Abby and Shafwa) visited us from Newport, we… Read More Warmer Days Are (Finally) Here
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

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

It was the Easter weekend last week and followed with Patriot’s day today (also Boston Marathon 2014). Just wanna share some colors and happiness that the spring and chill-warm weather is finally here. Such a joyous moment just to see the blooming pink and white petals and yellow bushes. Even tough in Public Garden and Boston… Read More Hello Again, Spring…!
To be honest, I’m not a cat person. I don’t find them cute and I feel like to press ‘unshare’ button every single time I see someone over-posting about their cats in Path. But this one is the exception. I love these cats! I’m talking about this music video from Disney’s classic ‘The Aristocats’. This movie is under-appreciated… Read More Everybody Wants To Be A Cat
