One of my favourite exotic fruits

Hey it's rambutan season here in Indonesia. We can only have this food once or twice a year. It's seasonal fruit! With white transparant flesh, jelly like,very juicy, sweet and a bit sour in taste. This is my favourite food for long summer here. Slruuuup. Fresh!

Hillarious thing about the gorgeous Edward Cullen and common normal human Man.


A normal guy would say: “I love you Baby!”
Edward Cullen would say: “You are my life now.”

Normal Guy would say: “I think I am falling for you.”
Edward Cullen would say: “The Lion fell in Love with the Lamb”

Normal Guy would say: “You hair looks like a haystack; go brush it!”
Edward Cullen would say: “Your hair looks like a haystack but I like it.”

Normal Guy would pick a random song from a random artist and dedicate it to you.
Edward Cullen would sing you a song he wrote for you while playing the piano.

If you die, a Normal Guy would find another.
If you die, Edward would kill himself cause life without you isn’t worth living.

“Well, I wasn’t going to live without you..” He rolled his eyes as if that fact were childishly obvious.
“..but I wasn’t sure how to do it. I knew Emmet and Jasper would never help so I was thinking maybe I would go to Italy 
and do something to provoke the Volturi.”

As you leave the house, a Normal Guy would say: “Bye, see ya!”
As you leave the house Edward Cullen would say: “Come back to me, love.”

He smiled my favorite smile. “Hurry back to me.”

As you come back to the house, a Normal Guy would be watching TV and wouldn’t even notice.
As you come back to the house, Edward Cullen would be welcoming you by playing the piano with a song just for you.

“I heard the music before I was out of the car. Edward hadn’t touched his piano since the night Alice left. 
Now, as I shut the door, I heard the song morph through a bridge and change into my lullaby. Edward was welcoming me home.’

Normal Guy would wait for you to make him breakfast.
Edward Cullen would make you breakfast everyday.

While you are both out for dinner, a Normal Guy wouldn’t keep his eyes off the sexy waitress.
Edward Cullen wouldn’t even notice the waitress was a female.

A Normal Guy, while driving, would keep one hand on the wheel and one hand on the radio.
Edward Cullen, while driving, would keep one hand on the wheel and the other attached to yours.

While far apart in different places, a Normal Guy would say: “I miss you.”
While far apart in different places, Edward Cullen would say: “It’s like you’ve taken half myself with you”

A Normal Guy wouldn’t care or notice if you had nightmares.
Edward Cullen would sing until your nightmares went away.
“Do you want me to sing to you? I’ll sing all night if it will keep the bad dreams away.”

A Normal Guy does it with everyone.
Edward Cullen only does it with one.

A Normal Guy buys you flowers and chocolates.
Edward Cullen buys you a car - the most expensive car. (THE BEST PART! HAHA!)

My Craziness For Baron

He is absolutely a talented photo model! My ugly duckling finally shows his true self as a photogenic matter. Lol. My easiest photo session with animal is with my beloved daschund, Baron. He will sit if I ask him to sit, lay down, lay on his back, and I can manage in which direction his eyes should be. He has an aristocrate look that make him even cuter than ever (for me). Don't believe me? These pictures would tell you the truth...

Cooking for Idiot

I hate cooking! Ahahaha. I hate oily stuff, the heat and washing the dishes. But now i have a boy who should get a better food, better nutrition and *mom's love*. Despite all the things i hate about it, I start learning how to cook. My son cheers me all the time if I cook and that's surely makes me happy. Like today, the first thing he said when he woke me up in the morning (he always gets up earlier than me. Lazy mom!) is : "Mommy let's cook! Come on! Cook!" And he dragged me to the door (when my eyes was still closed). So... I climbed down the stairs (still with the closed eyes) and walked around with my boy behind me shouted "Cook! Mommy cook!" and pushed me to the kitchen.

Finally I gave up and opened my eyes and made pancakes (his favourite breakfast). Hope he doesn't do this every morning to me. One time is cute, but everyday is annoying.

Here is some idiot cooking session I had with my boy.

This is Chicken & Mushroom Pie. The first time I made a pie. My boy loveeees it (the important thing for me)

Piece of the pie

And I made an Apple Pie. My hubby and I love this apple pie, but my boy didn't want to eat it. Sigh.

And I made this cake. In Bahasa we call it Kue Sus. My hubby think they still need more improvement.

And today's menu is Curry Fried Tempe. Tempe is an Indonesian food made from fermented soy bean.

Dont' ask me why the foods look so weird. It's all my own idiot way to make edible food for my son. I cannot cook and even when I saw recipes I cannot follow the direction perfectly. So... All I can say to my boy is ENJOY!!!! LoL

What is this? What is that? - Part 2

The last photo session is about a grasshopper I found hugging a tree trunk. I'm afraid of insects but this grasshopper lost his both back legs (the leg for jumping around) so I knew it safe for me :P. 

Feel sorry for it, because I know the birds would catch it soon or later.... Huhuhuuuuuu. I don't like insects but I never wish they die too.

But with no legs, I can make a MACRO picture of the grasshopper and found some beautiful ornaments on his body. (Can I say ornaments? lol)

This is the handicapped tree hugger.

Lets take a closer look

And closer...

And it moved to my broom's stick

Do you notice his beautiful body is covered by textures more like emboss ornaments? Even so... I never ever want to touch it. So sorry but I have a terrible phobia to all insects

Overall It was an interesting day

What is this? What is that?

Today I went out from my nest with my toddler. I told him that we're gonna do some gardening. lol. He did the gardening for me of course (throwing out the stones from the garden, sweeping the leaves, and watering) and I had time to observe the other part of my house (which I never touch before *I hate gardening*)

I took my digicam and start to hunt every possible thing I could catch with the camera. And hey I felt a simple happiness I used to know before. For an anti-toddler like me, having a boy is not easy. And I also have a lot of family issue since I got married. I still can't get the way chinese thinking about relationship and way of life (I marry a chinese guy from a traditional chinese family, I am chinese myself but most my family live (or had been lived) in Europe and US). Aaaah forget about that. Anyway... I just want to share all the treasure-junk like that lay in front of my house - In MACRO so we can have another perspective from the ordinary world.

I've told you that I have gardening, haven't I? Ahahaha. And after few months wild grass and weeds fill my small garden. If you see them in MACRO mode like I did, they are not so bad actually. With the purple tiny flowers and some beautiful white buds...

And heyyyy I have clovers! Too bad they are not four leaves clovers (it consider lucky?). But I still love to see the clovers in my garden. They grow in a small groups between the rocks. Nice...

And some tiny plants that grow on the wall. If you look behind the camera, it looks like a tiny forest with different kind of leaves, flowers and branches.

And my neighbour's tree got sick (can I say that a tree get sick?) It has tiny black dots all over the leaves. Yaiks! Since I am not good at all with the plants, I don't know if it's ok or not. But The tree looks really ugly with all the black things all over it.

And this is the inside part of tree trunk MACRO. Fibers all the way... 

And I have a big junk in my garden. It is my very old bicycle. My dad bought it for me when I was in elementary school. Hoaaaaaaaaa. It's a long long long time ago. But this is my first bike and I beg it for a whole week. Hehehe. Now the beautiful bike looks only like a rusty junk in my garden, still a lot of people told me not to throw away that old bike. *Even one of my friend send me a short message on my cell to remind me not to throw it away. Ahahaha. The most loveable bike.

Here is my old bike... Can't you see it's old and beautiful? be continue
(My friend is calling me to chat). Byeeeee

New Desk New Wardrobe

Building a house for me is almost similar with falling in love for the first time. My heart's beating faster everytime I have a new stuff and can't wait to tell the world how much I love it. I know it's a crazy thing to do, because it doesn't look pretty at all but I simply love it. Just like falling in love rite?

Today the first time I saw my wardrobe and desk... And just like the other part of my house, I love them! Too bad I didn't bring any wide-lenses today. I couldn't take a good picture of the wardrobe since it is sooo big.

Here is the glimpse of my desk and wardrobe (it's on the other side of my bedroom)

The classic style of Louis Chair and cute desk by Pottery Barn (click here for the collection) and a modern look glass wardrobe. All in brown - blue shade (Currently I'm crazy with this colour combination).

Here is the real pic of the desk by Pottery Barn

I love the detail from the chair. It's in a rustic look...


And... the fabric is fabulous. It has a shabby soft feeling, not as glamour as the same type of chair I saw, but still has an elegance aura.

With different textures on it, the brown part is softer than the blue part. It feels 3D. lol. The brown part also a bit thicker than the blue.

The Evolution of My House

I repainted my home with some unusual colour. Most colour used in my country is white, beige, pale yellow, light blue, baby pink, and a lot of a very light leaf green. All in bright shade and I think I become so bored with the bright colour and choose darker shade. Strong colour.

It's rose colour for the front side.

(I got a lot of credits for choosing this red rose colour. Hehe)

I have medium shade brown for the first floor

(No good photos for this area now)

I change Carlson's bedroom colour. Now it's in a Grayish Blue mood.

And Olive Green for the stairway area

And I love green in my bathroom :D

Gustav The Baby

My baby Gustav is getting bigger now. He is a mommy boy, looks just like his mommy and act like her. Sigh. A rascal little puppy.

He loves when I hold him in my arms, but he runs away if you want to pet him. Just like his mother. Never allow human pet them on their head. Sob sob. Really want to pet him.

Vodka Mix Anyone???


This bottle has been on my shelf for years. Nobody drinks it or even touch it. One of the most common vodka mix in my country. Never know what it tastes like.

I Bought A Hamster!!!

Today I passed a petshop with my hubby and my little boy. It's not our destination but finally we stopped there and played with the pets there. Yesterday I opened the old files on my computer and I missed all my hamsters. I used to have hundreds of fat and happy hamsters when I was a teenager. All my hamsters were very special and had their own stories. Some hamsters missed one or two legs, the others were blind, and some rejected hamsters from petshops. These rejected hamsters were the best pets in the world to me. We all have special bond and even they had a very short life, I really enjoy all the fun and happiness. Miss them all...

In the petshop I saw a glass tank where they keep about 20 hamsters. They were 3 weeks hamsters except one. She was the biggest and oldest hamster in the tank. Hamster tend to attack other hamster which not belong in one group, especially older hamster. That's way I saw this hamster attack all the younger ones. Since I miss my hamster so much, I can't help myself to take this hamster home. And I bought her... Hehe.

She is an adorable female hamster. Very sweet and gentle. Even my 2 year old boy can bring her on his palm. This is the first time my boy can hold a hamster. I have a syrian, but it's too big for his hand and my syrian is a lil bit coward. He's scared to anything. Sigh. But not this little girl, Teru. Teru loves human friend! And it makes her very special...

Angel of Harmony

Few years ago I got a special gift from my friend who lives in Australia. It's a great collectible figure of an angel by Susan Lordi. You can see all her works at her willow tree website. I love the detail of this figure, with the unfinished and simple look. Seems like a perfect gift for me. I took some photos of my willow tree angel. Here it is.
