About me

Welcome to my little corner of the internet world!

I am Ria.  I’m Indonesian by heart and Australian by choice.  I was born on a small island in Central Sulawesi. I spent three years of my childhood moving from one island to another due to my Father’s job, before we finally settled in Jakarta.

I grew up with my only brother playing kites, dirt, and read all the Famous Five series by Enid Blyton and Tintin.  I didn’t like Barbie dolls.

I met my husband through work, married and moved to Australia.  We had lived for almost 4 years in England when I became pregnant, threw up a lot and unbearably swollen during the pregnancy to the birth.

This blog has been on and off for quiet a while.  I’m not a professional blogger and English is not my mother tongue, so pardon me if there are a lot of mistakes in my posts.  I just like the idea that I could just sit in my pyjamas all day long ranting about usual bump and grind of life.  Things that I write mostly they are about opinions, my point of view, you won’t find anything too profound in this blog.  Just the rambling of my mind as a mother, wife, and its complicated life.

If I had to fill out a questionnaire about my hobbies it would probably look like this: I love dancing in the kitchen, chips and salsa, Sex and The City, and television that excels at being really awful.

I love plants, yoga, reading, healthy living and cooking.  I love fashion and all beautiful things that capture my eyes.

You are more than welcome to comment, but please don’t be rude/nasty.  If this turns you off, simply just please close the window and go away.  Otherwise, happy reading and thank you for visiting my site.
