Happy 2nd Birthday, Kid O

25 Mar

Another one year of learning as parents for mommy and daddy. Hopefully we did something right in taking care of Baby O, or letโ€™s promote him to be Kid O now ๐Ÿ‘ถ๐Ÿป๐ŸŽ‚๐Ÿ‘ฆ๐Ÿป

No, we didnโ€™t make a birthday party for Kid Oโ€™s 2nd birthday. We donโ€™t want him learn a wrong message, that birthday means party. Because Kid Oโ€™s birthday is about mommy and daddy being grateful, that Kid O came to our life 2 years ago. We are more than grateful to be chosen as a pair of Baby Oโ€™s parents โค๏ธ

Happy 2nd birthday, mommy and daddyโ€™s brightest kid. Hopefully you grow to be a bright kid that always lights anyoneโ€™s way even from a far, like the wish we put in your name. Mommy and daddy love you very much ๐Ÿ‘ชโค๏ธ

On a side note, Kid O loves his 2nd birthday cake very much โค๏ธโค๏ธโค๏ธ He loves every details of it, he wants to take and eat the 3d figures off the cake since he 1st laid his eyes on the cake ๐Ÿ‘ฆ๐Ÿป๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿšฒ

Kid O also loves the taste of the cake very much ๐Ÿ‘ฆ๐Ÿปโค๏ธ๐ŸŽ‚๐Ÿšฒ He only want to eat his birthday cake, doesnโ€™t want to eat anything else ๐Ÿ˜…

Mommy and daddy always satify when ordering custom 3D birthday cake for Kid O in The Harvest. Especially when this year request was Baby boyโ€™s 3D birthday cake with 4-wheels white bicycle (no, we donโ€™t fancy superheroes, they donโ€™t mean anything to Kid O, yet). The birthday cake turns out great (both in display and taste) ๐ŸŽ‚๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜‹ Thank you very much, The Harvest ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿป๐Ÿ™๐Ÿปโค๏ธ

Happy 29th Birthday, Dear Husband!

16 Sep

It was husband’s 2nd birthday with Baby O around, but just like last year (click here to read more), Baby O was soundly asleep when I gave surprise to husband. With the help of my sister and my mom to bought the birthday cake and wrap the birthday presents, happy 29th birthday, dearest husband! ๐Ÿ˜˜โค๏ธโค๏ธ


Has converted from loyal Holland Bakery customer to Dapur Cokelat’s since 2011, and converted again to The Harvest’s since 2014


It was a surely hectic day at the office for husband and I, we ended up really tired when going back home. Husband did not even want to open his eyes when he blew the candles. We went straight to bed after that, no taking pictures, no cutting cake ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚

Husband opened the presents from me and Baby O the night after. The cake still had not been sliced, because we were waiting until we had family picture with the birthday cake ๐Ÿ˜…๐Ÿ˜…๐Ÿ˜…

1st Present: Hm, it’s just like the other presents you gave to your big family

2nd Present: Meh! Same like 3 years ago present

3rd Present: Hahaha okaaayy ๐Ÿ™‚

4th Present: Yeaaayy! โค๏ธ

Happy birthday, dearest husband ๐ŸŽ‰๐ŸŽ‚๐ŸŽ I may not be the perfect wife, I may not be the perfect mother, but hopefully I am imperfectly the best for you and Baby O. May you have a long healthy life so we could always be together in merry and sorrow, aamiin ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿป. Love you always, dearest husband ๐Ÿ˜˜

We finally had the chance to take proper family photo for husband’s birthday picture on the evening of this saturday. Yeay! ๐Ÿ‘ช

Holiday in Puncak: Taman Bunga Nusantara

10 Jul

Taman Bunga Nusantara is also a good place for family holiday destination in Puncak, West Sumatra, Indonesia. It is like a huge amusement park but with flowers as attraction. Not only it has flowers, but also:

1๏ธโƒฃ Peacock Plant-Statue


The welcome plant-statue for visitors who enter the entrance. Can you the peacock’s tail beautifully design from flowers on the ground? ๐Ÿ™‚

2๏ธโƒฃ Water Garden


It is called Water Garden because there is a pond and swimming gooslings on the pond.

3๏ธโƒฃ Maze Garden


The maze is made of from plant. It is too big that we decided not to come into the maze, remembering we came with Baby O (no stroller and no carrier) and Baby O’s grandparents. So we just see the beautiful maze from the control tower. ๐Ÿ˜€

4๏ธโƒฃ Musical Fountain


This is not just ordinary fountain. This is a water-dancing fountain along with the musical music that play along in the area. Baby O had so much fun in here ๐Ÿ™‚

5๏ธโƒฃ Rose Garden


Can you see the arches? They make up the rose garden beautifully. I bet many couples took pre-wedding photos here. ๐Ÿ™‚

6๏ธโƒฃ Play Park

โ€‹โ€‹
Baby O’s first time experience riding a horse, unfortunately still accompanied by me. Because husband is afraid of horse ๐Ÿ˜… And Baby O liked it very much. He always rewatch the video of him riding the horse at home every night before bed ๐Ÿ˜‚

7๏ธโƒฃ And many more ๐Ÿ’š๐Ÿ’š๐Ÿ’š

If we google “Taman Bunga Nusantara” or open its official website (click here), the pictures are far more beautiful than pictures in this blog. The park is indeed beautiful, but somehow it is hard to take beautiful pictures there with using selfie stick. Perhaps we might need to use drone so we can capture the beauty from above. ๐Ÿ™‚

Oh, and it was crowded when we went there on eid fitr holiday this year. We thought it was because of the eid fitr holiday, turned out we went there at the exact same time and date with Mr. President and his family (Mrs. First Lady and Ms. First Daughter) visit. No wonder it was too crowded. Can you count how many guards that came along with him? ๐Ÿ˜‚

Holiday in Puncak: The Ranch Puncak

3 Jul

The Ranch Puncak in Mega mendung area, newest favorite place in puncak. It was just newly launched during eid fitr holiday this year. Visitors need to pay entrance fee, but we get free milk in return, or could be treated as food & drink coupon. Yeay! ๐Ÿ˜†


The Ranch Mega Mendung is a combination of restaurant and playground. The restaurant offers tasty Taste of Bandung food, yummy ๐Ÿ˜‹. While the playground in The Ranch Mega Mendung is rather a family playground than just kid playground because there are so many attractions that could be done as a family. Or at least parents and their kids. Such as:

1๏ธโƒฃ Horse riding


Only those who are 90cm tall may ride it, so Baby O was still not allowed to. Kids who are still afraid to ride alone can be accompanied by adult from below.

2๏ธโƒฃ Feeding the calves

Which Baby O was afraid of. It was his first time experience seeing any calves, let alone feeding them. ๐Ÿ˜€

3๏ธโƒฃ Feeding the rabbits in front of their holes


Which Baby O was still a little afraid too, eventhough he greeted the rabbits cheerly from afar. Let mommy works on this another time

4๏ธโƒฃ Feeding baby lambs on the field

Photo taken by Haikal Mahfuz Rize with iPhone 5s only


Unfortunately, it was Baby O’s breastfeeding time and we had been there for too long. So we didn’t check whether Baby O brave enough to fed the baby lambs or not

5๏ธโƒฃ And many other kid-friendly attractions ๐Ÿ™‚

There are also many attractive spots to take pictures to. It is totally a holiday destination for family ๐Ÿ‘ถ๐Ÿป๐Ÿด๐Ÿฎ๐Ÿฐ๐Ÿ‘โ›ฐ

Holiday in Singapore: Kill the Time in Changi Airport

29 May

Whenever going to an airport, some people choose to arrive near the departure time. Probably because they already web checked in their seat from home. Some other choose to arrive at least 2 hours before departure time, eventhough they already web checked in from home. Probably because they are afraid of sudden change in flight schedule and makes them late or left behind.

But Changi Airport is not just any airport. It is one the best airport in the world. And as a connecting airport of many flights from and to Asia Pacific, it has many attractions to entertain passengers while waiting for their next flight. On our back home to Indonesia, we purposedly arrive 4 hours before the departure time to be able to visit the attraction sites in Changi Airport. ๐Ÿ˜€

Here is the few list of many attractions that we visited in Changi:

Terminal 1: Cactus Garden

It is a rooftop garden with many kinds of cactus planted alive. We love it so much to be here, because it is rooftop garden (no explanation needed, ahem) with airplane runaway as background (so cool). We never imagined Singapore as a green country, especially its airport. Hats down ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป

Terminal 2: Koi Pond

For some people, looking at swimming koi fish can give some calm feeling. It is a beautiful view to see the fish swimming around. The fish are big and not afraid of humans. In this pond, kids may feed the fish at the feeding time. 

Terminal 3: Butterfly Garden

This place is more beautiful than the cactus garden ๐Ÿ˜. Not only alive plants that we can see here, but also the alive butterflies that fly all over the places. As a big city kid, this is where Baby O saw real life butterflies for the first time ๐Ÿ™ˆ. 

Terminal 3: Birds in Flight

It is a contemporary art of a flock of bird as symbol for traveling. The art which seen as beautiful for some people, and just cool for other people. ๐Ÿ™‚

Baby O with The helpful stroller that can be freely rented inside any terminal in the airport. There was also free rented wheelchair for those in need


There are so many attractive attractions in Changi Airport. If we happen to be strandred here for several hours, no need to worry. Make a lemonade out of it ๐Ÿ™‚
