welcoming 2015…

We haven’t take picture as family in front of our Christmas tree ever since it put on (Dec 5). So last Sunday before going to church I insist to have it because we will put it down soon. And I will regret if I miss the opportunity. I prepared my son black shirt to match my dress, my husband and daughter politely followed, so we all in black…..I love the taking pictures in this spot in the morning, the light is just perfect, made us look fresh and bright. Happy New Year!!!

back to library…

related to one of my resolution which is back to read
Today we decided to enrolled our family in a library
love the name Rimba Baca means Reading Jungle
is not far from my house and closed to my kids school
almost every week we past it on the way home from church
It’s open for more than a year but it’s our first time stop by
The place is nice, 2 story building full of air conditioner
As we come in the shelves with lots of book are so inviting
As I talk to the “librarian” my daughter started to roaming
She also loves to read so she’s just exciting as I was
My husband and son came in later and they also liked it
It has children books downstairs and adults books upstairs
The books are mostly English and some Indonesia and other language
So cozy with sofa, chairs and tables, even beanbag on the floor
They also have a room for craft activity with an assistant
and every Saturday they have story telling event
as an ex-librarian I go around check for the books and everything
even though it doesn’t use DDC and the common library system
but this is the concept of library I’ve been always dream of
So we pay the membership fee and borrow 5 books right away
I think this will be one of the place we will visit often this year.

green pancakes for christmas’ breakfast…

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

feel like made pancake this morning
after had some white toast yesterday
I saw a picture of christmas tree pancake at pinterest
and planning to make one like that
but is just take time to make different sizes
from big to small one to form a tree
so I just make all the same size
I use food coloring to get the green
but my mom usually make it from some leaves
put some cinnamon although my kids didn’t like it.
but they put some peanut butter on it
maybe to cover the taste of cinnamon
I made tea in the teapot and orange juice as well.
as you can see in the picture,
it was quite a nice and yummy breakfast.
What did you have for breakfast this morning???


Another summer day
Has come and gone away
In Paris and Rome
But I wanna go home

May be surrounded by
A million people I
Still feel all alone
I just wanna go home
Oh, I miss you, you know

And I’ve been keeping all the letters that I wrote to you
Each one a line or two
“I’m fine baby, how are you?”
Well I would send them but I know that it’s just not enough
My words were cold and flat
And you deserve more than that

Another aeroplane
Another sunny place
I’m lucky, I know
But I wanna go home
Mmmm, I’ve got to go home

Let me go home
I’m just too far from where you are
I wanna come home

And I feel just like I’m living someone else’s life
It’s like I just stepped outside
When everything was going right
And I know just why you could not
Come along with me
‘Cause this was not your dream
But you always believed in me

Another winter day has come
And gone away
In even Paris and Rome
And I wanna go home
Let me go home

And I’m surrounded by
A million people I
Still feel all alone
Oh, let me go home
Oh, I miss you, you know

Let me go home
I’ve had my run
Baby, I’m done
I gotta go home
Let me go home
It will all be all right
I’ll be home tonight
I’m coming back home

the cat…

this black cat show up on Sunday
didn’t really notice it til Monday
“keep it” said my friend Carly
when I wonder whether she should stay

feed her milk in the morning
feed her rice in the evening
Our dog Beyonce seem to jealous
she bark at her so ferocious

Once we had Zero, a marmalade cat
My son took from the market
he was smart and he was fast
But the stay with us isn’t last

don’t really know where she’s been
she follow us everywhere
she try to get in the house
worry when she’s not anywhere to be seen

The kids started to love her
I think my heart have fallen as well
Rihanna is the name we call her
Now it’s even harder to say farewell

just an idea…(2)

My husband is so sweet, last night when he came back from a meeting, brought me 3 stems of red flower. I took 3 empty Olive Oil bottles, clean them up, then fill them with water. Instead of putting the flowers in one vase all together, I put each flower into each bottle, and tied the bottles with a transparant little bow. Look nice right? Just an idea….
