thank you for blessing 2018

Two thousand eighteen is almost done and dusted.  It has been a good year for our family with good health and steady work for le hubby. So, thank you 2018. It has also been a busy year for the boys with all the sports and school activities.  Good reports at the end of the school [...]

this mama’s life

 It's been a few months since my last post on this blog.  And now it's already December and only less than  a week before Christmas!  My gosh this year is gone so fast, I can't believe it! Well, at the moment, in the middle of state swimming championship, I tried to sit back and take [...]

I used to think that gardening or plants are just for old people.  I mean, when you are 60 and above, then it's the kind of thing you would do to kill time.  I often admired my late mother in law's  garden and amused with all her colourful petunias.  I always love pretty garden though, [...]

BLUEBERRY PIE BARS

BLUEBERRY PIE BARS

I haven't blogged any recipe posts for such a long time!  Pardon moi!  I had lots of fresh blueberries (they are in season at the moment) so yesterday I decided to make this blueberry pie bars. It's so easy and quick, with no mixer or rolling pin needed.  If you know me well enough, I [...]

unplug for the better version…of me?

Sometimes life can be so frustrated. Or maybe more like, I myself that feel frustrated about life. Every little things that don't matter (and not important I suppose for people who have real life) just seems don't work well with me. And that drives me mad....and frustrated. I can't really tell you what it is [...]

In this part of the world where I live, spring is in the air.  Although some mornings and nights are still chill, but at least the sun shines and the flowers bloom.  I can say bye bye to turtle neck and thick jumpers, finally! I can't believe that more than half of the year has [...]

the copy cat: friend or foe

I used to get angry when someone drew the same thing as me in Kindergarten.  If you were grown up in Indonesia in 70s, you probably knew the standard kindy kids drawing back then; a mountain, with big smiley sun shines, clouds, trees along the road, a house....remember? 😛 When I was in my teenager era, [...]

bali baby!

bali baby!

Bali seemed like a good idea for this school holidays.  It just fitted our time frame perfectly. Since le hubby couldn't get much time off, so 8 days in the island of paradise was just what we needed.  We actually didn't really plan to go to Bali again, since our last visit was in February, [...]

fourteen

Today is 14 years ago, when I spent almost 24 hours on the labour bed waiting for both of you to enter the world. But all the pains and uncomfortable feelings I had during those long hours was transformed into excitement, joy, and happiness once I held you both in my arms. Fast forward 14 [...]

kale salad with strawberry and granola

Hi everyone, it's been a very long time since I post about my cooking/baking recipe.  Honestly, most of the time I can't be bothered to cook, write the recipe, take proper pictures, and blog it!  It's so time consuming, I'm not that good in multi-tasking you know!  Especially when I'm not the expert in the [...]
