Polcari’s Coffee di Little Italy, Boston yang tersohor Jika ditanya area favorite di Boston, maka jawaban saya tanpa ragu-ragu adalah: North End! Di sana banyak hal menarik yang bisa dilihat dan dipelajari, pun bisa dijelajahi berbekal jalan kaki saja (well, pada dasarnya seantero Boston memang sangat jalan-able sih). Tentunya, siapkan sepatu yang enak untuk diajak… Read More North End and Little Italy
Di perjalanan menuju Walt Disnet World (WDW), saya dan Tante Wina mengingatkan diri kami masing-masing agar tidak terlalu “histeris” dan “heboh” ketika sampai di Magic Kingdom. Dan (syukurlah) ternyata saya tidak terlalu heboh ketika sampai di sana; padahal jauh-jauh hari saya sudah heboh sendiri membayangkan betapa “magic”nya tempat itu. Entah kenapa (mungkin karena faktor usia,… Read More Orlando Part II: Magic Kingdom Park

Azka and Khalif had never watched the movie Cars until finished (they have not been able to watch one movie full version for straight two hours); but both of them are so in love with Lightning McQueen and Tow Mater – the main characters in that movie as I introduced them by the books that… Read More Orlando Part I: Disney’s Art of Animation and Downtown Disney
Pergi ke Walt Disney World di Orlando adalah impian saya sejak kecil (bagi pecinta film Disney, rasanya hampir semua orang pasti memiliki mimpi yang sama). Tapi semenjak pindah dan tinggal di Amerika, lambat laun saya melupakan mimpi saya itu; rasa-rasanya enggak mungkin bisa kesampaian bisa berlibur ke sana, at least dalam waktu dekat. Pertama, gak… Read More To Walt Disney World We Go!
A hundred times have I thought New York is a catastrophe, and fifty times: It is a beautiful catastrophe- Le Corbusier When you’re a stay at home mother, traveling all by yourself would be considered as a very big privilege. On my last 29th Bday, Papa Ara, Azka and Khalif gave me an unforgettable birthday present:… Read More The Beautiful Catastrophe
I have bunch of simple lists that I want to do at least once a year, i.e: watch the sunrise in South End of New Bedford ( I’m not a morning person, I woke up daily at 7 AM – with my dearest living alarm: Azka), have a morning walk at the nearest park, afternoon jogging near… Read More Go outside – Happiness is Maximized at 13.9°C
If you know me well enough, you would realize that most of my pictures are either taken in the playgrounds, parks, libraries, beaches, farms, or farmers’ market. I love the idea of visiting a place that doesn’t require money for us to enjoy. Even though when you go to malls or any department stores, you… Read More Pick Your Own Pumpkins….!
I want to spoiled the boys – and the best place to stay cool is to play indoor, so last week we visited three of the children’s museums nearby : Easton, Providence, and Boston….! We’ve been to Providence (January 2012) and Boston Children’s (December 2010) before, but it was the first time for Easton. Easton… Read More Children’s Museum Week
