i had more fun of this than the kids!

getting older, i don’t buy clothes specially for lebaran. the crowded shopping malls turn me off and buying things for jingga is somehow more fun.

but when jingga is already asleep and i have time to browse online, i sometimes visit those online shops. i love online shops. i can save time with all the traffic jams and the parking trouble.

and now i found some clothes i want for lebaran. it’s something kaftan top or top with embroidery like these. all from zalora.

i’m sooo happy to find tegel kunci uses widely in public spaces. it’s such an eye candy wherever i go. and i can’t stop taking pictures of it.

somehow, it’s often applied on random pattern. but personally i like it in order better.

of course i wanted to watch the grand budapest hotel. budapest is one of the city i used to live.

but the movie has nothing to do with the city but it has the style. it’s quite interesting, with fictional setting and weird and magical things happening here and there. i didn’t regret watching this.

since a few weeks ago, jingga joined a ballet class. so far, she loves the class and every single day, she talks about it and can’t wait for the next class.

the class is called baby class. mostly it was fun things to do. some kids refused to follow the teacher’s instruction and play instead.

when i was in school, i remember there was a teacher who always had garlic bread all the time. i guess she loved it so much.

garlic bread is something super easy to made. then i found out i can add cheese to give a kick of more taste. i didn’t use specific french/italian bread. i just used some bread i had at home. and replace parsley with celery. the taste didn’t disappointed me…

did you grow up reading tintin? i did.

the drawing style and the characters are really memorable for me. these posters bring back of my childhood with tintin’s adventure. there are probably more of these to come.

we visited legoland in johor bahru, malaysia 2 weeks ago. our base was in singapore and spent 1 full day in legoland. it was raining in singapore when we arrived, luckily it was sunny for the next few days.

jingga was accompanied with her 2 cousins, so it was fun for her. she enjoyed the trip very much.
