Caterpillar Buddy Go To Theatre

Image
I was introduced to Eric Carle and his works during my teaching years here and I'm falling in love with it! I think everyone does! In fact my very first class' name was based on the titles of Eric Carle's books! Mine was Little Cloud back then! Please please do google and check Eric Carle's works!!
When Janne told me she won a giveaway and asking us to come along, I didn't think twice to say yes!  I can't resist the offer to see The Very Hungry Caterpillar story become life and furthermore, it's going to be Gide's first experience watching a play in theater. The real one! Excited!!! Okay, mami lebih semangat sih! HOHOHO  



And you know what even cuter?! Jojo was giving Gide a handmade caterpillar made of ice cream stick and pom pom balls with the googly eyes! Thank you so much, Josephine! Though by now, the caterpillar was a lit bit here and there since Gide was way to excited playing with it. But again, the thought that really count! Thank you again …

From Jalan Besar to Little India to Orchard Library

.. and ended up at Marina Square eating the Kolomee before heading home with aching body for mommy! Faktor U, sodara - sodara! Nyaw!! Oh, we actually did go to Holland Village to pay a visit to our favorite waffle hut but apparently it was raining like cat and dog so we kinda stuck in the MRT station! Ikr! We're like traveling around Singapore in one day! But that's what you do when your loved ones in town! You bring them around! And we're more than happy to play tourist which allow you to explore this little red dot over and over, and I still can't get enough of it! I thank God for you, Singapore! 
Btw, the route I shared with you was our day two! Pantang pulang sebelom kaki pengkor semboyan kita! HAHAHA ...




We started our journey that day by visiting Chye Seng Huat to have a sip of their coffee and filling our tummy to start the long day! But it didn't work for me so I had my mixed rice at the hawker opposite the place! And now I'm redeeeehhh!!!!! HAHAHA ...



Let Them!

This sonshine of mine is already 27 months! Terus kemaren emaknya salah jawab donk pas ada yang nanya anaknya umur berapa, bilangnya 26 months! HAHAHA ... And if you ask me hows the twos going so far? I would say terrific and terrible at the same time! Yes! Terribly good!!! Terribly challenging!!! Terribly fun!! Kalo kata Bang Rhoma, "Terlalu!" ;)
I guess everybody has known that from 0 -3 is categorized as the golden age in of childhood. They seem not doing anything much and it's quite true because they're absorbing everything! Yes, they're absorbing their surroundings, the tone of our voice, the gesture we make, the value that we think they don't see or know, .. yes they're absorbing it all! 
It's amazing!!
And scary at the same time! For me! It just like feel like yesterday when I taught him to pronounce the word "mami" and look at him now, "Mami, Gide mau pergi jalan - jalan! Mau makan sushi!" Yes, that sentence were coming fr…

Short Bandventure with The Nananas

Image
"Gee, aku pengen ke Bandung!" "Heh?! Kapan mau kesana?" "Akhir bulang aja yuk!" "Seriusan?! Kan kita mau pegi lagi abis itu"
"Iya, bisa lah! Weekend doank!"

Bandung bisa dibilang rumah kedua buat Abang karena doi sempet menghabiskan masa kuliah di sana. Selaen Abang, ayah dan ibu mertua saya juga sempet sekolah di Bandung. Belom lagi waktu jaman pacaran dulu kita juga suka jalan - jalan di Bandung dan gongnya abis menikah kita short getaway ke Bandung setelah gagal ke Jogja gara - gara gunung meletus! Ga sampe di situ, sejak Gide pulang pertama kali ke Indonesia pas umur 6 bulan udah langsung kita ajak ke Bandung. Jadilah weekend kemaren kita ngacir ke Bandung karena ada yang kangen! 
"Gee, coba kamu liat ada apa yang baru di Bandung ya" "Emang kalo ada yang baru kamu mau nyobain? Ke Bandung kan justru maunya makan makanan yang itu lagi"  "Iya juga sih ya" "Ya iya lah, kan pasti pengen makan yang familiar, ya…

#39/52: A Quick Hello

Image
Can you see the rainbow?! Not so obvious but still so pretty! Always pretty!! Itu pelangi yang saya liat dua minggu lalu waktu main ke pantai sama Abang dan Gide! Orang bilang abis ujan suka ada pelangi tapi ini kebalikannya, pelanginya muncul duluan baru abis itu ujan. Calm before the storm might be the right phrase for it ... But again, doesn't matter when the storm come, after or before the rainbow, just remember God's love is always there to sustain us! :)
How are you people?!
HELLO !! HELLO !! HELLO !!
Hello from #MAMAYUKERO!! Been neglecting this blog for this and that reasons, mostly since the little cheeky boy is getting more and more active and decided to spend more time with him before school starts next year.  However, I'll be back to give you lots of stories, updates, and everything! I have everything jotted down in my notebook and looking forward to share it with you guys! Serasa ada yang nyariin aja ya?! HOHOHO ..  To be honest with all the snap and upload t…

4 Plates and 2 Bowls

Image
Ini bukan nama restoran atau tempat nongkrong baru tapi itu jumlah piring dan mangkok yang ada di lemari piring kami. Ciyus kakaknya?! Iya! Oh well, ada piring sama mangkok Gide juga sih dan beberapa mangkok kecil, ada beberapa piring besar yang masih dibungkus koran sejak pindahan, tapi basically those four plates and two bowls are the one that we use on our daily basis and it's more than enough since there are only three of us in the house ..
Udah hampir 4 bulanan sejak kita pindah ke rumah yang sekarang yang mana artinya udah sekitar 4 bulanan juga sejak kita melakukan prosesi buang buang buang! Yes, we're trying to minimizing our live, minimizing our stuff. Not to the extreme side but we're trying our best to keep whatever we need and use only dan dalam kasus saya itu termasuk urusan skin care dan make up! Dan baju, dan tas, dan sepatu! HAHAHA ...
Belakangan ini saya diingetin lagi untuk ngerasa cukup! Saya mah selalu kepengen ini itu tapi sekali lagi diingetin kalo …

When (you think) It's Over

Image
My birthday celebration continued! IKR!!! HAHAHA .. Macam anak ABG yang gagal move on gitu lah ceritanyaaaa!!! Iya tau koq ini udah tengah - tengah bulan september, saya sadar cuma ya gitu deh, good memories meant to be shared :)
Verdict: AKU SHIOK! SANGAT AMAT!! TAPI BAHAGIA LALALA ... Thank you people!!! Laff laff!!

It was a fine Sunday when we went to church in the morning and had lunch at Songfa (again) HAHAHA ... Decided to go home ealier coz Abang was having this idea to explore the east coast area and had dinner there. Okelah yuk!! Gide was sleeping on the way home and fortunately he still continued to sleep for quite sometimes and as you know when your toddler was sleeping its better for you to do the same thing also! Cus langsung ganti baju terus kita semua ngedeprok di kasur dan sofa! Berterbaran lah dimana - mana HAHAHA ...
Woke up with this hungry feeling and asked Abang what should we had for dinner but this guy wasn't giving me any responses at all! I was suggesting…

When Age Will Always Be A Number

Image
August may be over but there was some good memories left behind, especially that particular week when you turned 33! I hit the twin digits! Kaching!!! So yeah here we are again, the annual birthday post HOHOHO ;)

I remembered I was posting Gide's second birthday bash when the clock hit 12am! I didn't purposely stay awake on that day it just happened to be that the boys went sleep early and my fingers were busy dancing on the keyboard. Another thing, in your 30s you don't really expect somebody to come to your house at midnight, bring cake, and sing the birthday song ..  you might had been sleeping during that time HAHAHA ... A prayer thanking God for everything that I have now was a start to enter the new age! For the past, the present, and the future ahead! Thank you, Jesus!!!
And then I went straight to bed! Faktor U, sodara - sodara!!! HAHAHA
The next morning, woke up with greetings and kisses from husband and our bundle of joy too, Gide! "Hedei nyunyu, Mami!!&quo…

#34/52: A Week Full of Laugh

Image
... and love! And tumpeng! HOHOHO ;)

The past two weeks had been crazily tiring yet fun! In conjunction of celebrating our independence day, our youth group decided to throw a small celebration called "Jang Moeda" and me who always feel young at heart decided to join the dance troop (again) to do an opening number! It always feel good to be back at the dance floor though the practice sessions were quite challenging since Gide came along and always asking me to play with him but we made it at the end! High five, Gide!

The dress code on that day was 'indo banget' and decided to wear my one and only batik top that freshly handed to my hand on that day from MerryPipin, an online shop based in Bandung! Nuhun pisan, mami Pena! Ayaflu! Changed my dance outfit to this top and I was in love! So yes #OOTD ya lah! Pas hari itu berasa cakep! HAHAHA ...
That night we were spoiled by having nasi tumpeng, mpe - mpe, and martabak for the dessert! Bahagia lalala rasanya! Mpe - mpenya…
