Sakaw Tartan Hijab




Lately, saya berpikir harus segera 'melungsurkan' baju-baju jaman jadul saya
Lengan pendek, V neck, short dress and so on
Bukannya tanpa sebab, cuma sekedar ingin berpakaian lebih baik
Dan yang penting syar'i menutup aurat tanpa harus meninggalkan mode
Dalam quote "tetep modis" termasuk urusan jilbab atau hijab, bosen dengan paris, saya pun ingin berpaling ke lain gaya....
So, beberapa hari ini saya hunting kerudung yang lagi jadi pembicaraan paling happening
di http://www.fashionesedaily.com/, yaitu 2 side hijab
Dan yang buat saya makin panik adalah semuanya dalam motif Tartan !!!!
Yippiiii....Dan ini hasil rampokan saya di salah satu online shop yang provide si tartan ini

Dig Your Personal Style


I love read about fashion trend so much
But, im not such a fashionable person
I'm quite happy knowing the latest happening trend
The shoes, the bag and of course the clothes
Me?
I'm love being simple, wearing what i like
Usual just like "other mother" did...(But not that kind of mother) hehehe
Wearing hijab since last year didn't change my style so much
I'm still wearing jeans and boy's shirt or loose tee


Nowadays, after blogwalking to many hijab fashion blog everywhere, i met some conclusion
1. Wearing hijab doesn't mean you out of date
2. You still can follow the trend or YOU become the trend....

And i keep digging my personal style...

Looking for the latest trend which also comfy to me self...
Like today, i stolen hijab style from Dian Pelangi....
She is young talented fashion designer for hijabers
I like her hijab style a LOTTT!
It's simple, beautiful and still cover up your hair and neck and yet CHIC!
It's me today with DP style...hehehehe...I feel very beautiful a whole day!

Miracle happens on Friday and Prayers for my Jogya

I strongly believe my lovely Almighty GOD always listened to prayers
And this is my turn now....
Miracle happens on Friday
After several paintfull months, finally i can breath so easly (**lebay.com)
No more tears, i supposed
We're really happy and so do my other half, Cello
Allah made everything so easy, as He promised

Minggu ini agak bete karena my period is coming
So, di kereta on the way ke kantor gak bisa baca my tiny Qur'an
Bener juga orang bilang, sekali baca...lancar jaya jadi nagih
Seperti ketagihan sholat Dhuha setiap pagi...

Sedih karena melihat Jogya yang hampir tidak terlihat karena hujan debu
Duh Gusti, nyuwun ngapuro...
Minggu ini harus mengungsikan adikku dan the god maid a.ka Mince dari Purworejo
Karena disana hujan debu sudah sangat pekat
Bismillah...hanya berlindung pada kekuasaan Allah

It's Lebaran



It's Lebaran Time !


Dan belum pernah rasanya sebahagia dan setenang ini menyambut Lebaran
Walaupun rencana mudik GAGAL TOTAL karena ada kebutuhan lain yang tidak
bisa diganggu gugat...tapi saya dan keluarga tetap HAPPY...


Alhamdulillah, my other half, Cello selalu ada di samping saya untuk saling menguatkan
Begitupun para Krucil, dan para mbak yang tidak kecewa walau tidak jadi mudik bareng....
Semoga dan pasti ada hikmah nya...
Alhamdulillah, Cello selalu dikelilingi sama rejeki yang tak terduga
Allah selalu Maha Baik dan Pemurah!
Siapa tahu tahun depan masih bisa ketemu Ramadhan dan Lebaran
Ketemu Godmother buyut Darmi dengan piet goes-nya
Ketemu Mince - God mother dari para maid :p

Ketemu Jogya yang selalu ngageni....


So, Selamat Lebaran!

Hooooohhhhhhh !!

Tadi malam saya ngebut mengerjakan patchwork assignment saya since...
My patchwork teacher, Ria always checked in Friday for the progress
And then came this SMS:
" Mbak, pola nine patch nya dan bunga untuk hobo bag sudah jadikah?"
"Jangan lupa jahit silangnya di pertemuan 4 kain"

Hoooohhhh.....
Tadi malam dengan susah payah saya selesaikan 1 pola patchwork
Belum lagi alarm 2 unyil yang bawel karena jam tidur sudah tiba
Sambil menunggu Cello kembali ke rumah, akhirnya selesai juga 1 pola
Sedari siang saya mencari 1 pola lagi yang rasanya sudah saya selesaikan
Sampai tiba-tiba Mbak Risma datang, "Bu, aku tadi nyapu, rasanya sempet buang kain ini ke tong sampah, ini kerjaan patchwork ibu atau sisa kain ya???? "

Haaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa:((

Sibebo's Dollies



Last week, my order from Sibebo was arrived
Yes, they are ten dollies with so many sweet color
I will use these dollies for coaster
Thanks Nella

PS: wondering if i take crochet course also? sigh :(

Remembering My Eyang Kakung


Dimulai dengan kerinduan saya dengan almarhum eyang kakung saya hari ini....
Agak sulit mendeskripsikan tentangnya
1. Keras kepala (maklum bekas militer)
2. Keras kepala
3. Keras kepala
4. Galak
5. Gila bola
6. Takut dokter
7. Suka silahturahmi
8. Baik hati with his own way

See? rasanya susah sekali saya mendeskripsikan tentangnya
Saya belajar istilah bola dari beliau
Saya belajar setir mobil juga dari beliau
Saya suka baca juga akibat racun dari beliau
Saya banyak belajar so may things dari beliau

Ini yang saya sangat ingat
1. Sebulan sekali makan mie Godila di daerah cikini
2. Sebulan sekali menemani ambil pensiun di Bank (waktu itu Bank Umum Nasional)
3. Rutin beli kue jongkong di Monami (GOD, kl yg ini saya juga sukaaaaaaaaa)
4. Rutin mengunjungi dua adik putrinya di tebet timur dan di tebet barat
gantian mengunjungi mereka, krn kata eyang saya supaya ora meri...(bhs jawa: supaya gak ngiri)
5. Makan bakmie AA di tebet timur setelah itu, menu nya Mie ayam porsi besar dan segelas Fanta Merah (Huekkk...sampe bosen)
6. Kita sering kedatangan tamu setiap lebaran, semua keponakan dari eyang, which is (masih) om-om dan tante-tante saya
7. Masih banyak yang lainnya

Hhhmm, coba saya lis down keluarga2 ini: Ada om gendut (aslinya Budi, saya gak tau asal muasal nama ini), Om Jokky, Om Toti, Tante Lasma, Tante Sheilla, Tante Heny, Om Hengky dan beserta para anak2nya, Om Deny, Om Agus, Merry, Rini, Alm Om Ary. Then eyang itik tebet barat (skrg domisili di SBY for somekind a reason, i miss her risoles and lodeh ijo, eyang Hid, terakhir ketemu tahun 2008, sudah sepuh sekali...i miss her lebaran food)
Kemudian ada Alm Om Dodi beserta tante Endang, Gita, Nindy

Hoooohhh, everything are mingled....
Semua masih berkumpul sampai tahun 1996, sampai akhirnya eyang kakung saya berpulang di tahun 1997, padahal saya baru 2 tahun kuliah....
This is the saddest part: Dia ingin sekali melihat saya jadi sarjana
Hahahahhaa....cool joke at the time, tetapi pada saat jadi sarjana, saya baru sadar,
Ada yang kurang....but saya sempat tunjukkan toga saya di makam nya
Hehehehhe weird isn't ?

Next, sekarang semuanya sudah jarang bertemu (baca: tidak pernah)
Terakhir on my wed, i guess
Mungkin dulu yang masih muda sekarang sudah beruban
Yang perutnya rata udah mulai membuncit
Yang dulu masih pada SD sekarang udah pada kuliah

So i called this the lost memory....
Sometimes, either we're family, here in Jakarta
Sulit sekali menyempatkan waktu untuk bertemu keluarga
Ini menjadi pemakluman yang lumrah sekarang
Tapi jaman eyang saya? mana mungkin dianggap lumrah....
Yang ada dianggap kurang ajar : Hhehehehehhe....

Hey, mungkin setelah ini saya berencana mengunjungi makan eyang kakung saya
Just for say Hi and remembering sweet memories....

Something Lovely from Inacraft 2010





Inacraft is the largest international exhibition that presents many many variety of handicrafts from all over Indonesia. Surely, this is the holy exhibition and the most awaited by many crafter from all over Indonesia and off course me, as handy craft lover.

Last Friday, I intentionally went Inacraft with full preparation, bring enough beverages and lunches (because i don't want to waste time out for lunch, coz the venue is very crowd) and of course the camera always ready in hand.

I was very sure didn't bring any my credit cards, because we all ready knew what is the ending story:))
I made an appointment with Jane from miniquilt to pick up my wall hanging, then to nekatun to adopt some of them. The result were tablecloth for our entry console and dispenser cover.

Yesterday, i call Mbak Nunu Idris from nekatun for order another tablecloth and tissue cover.
Can't wait to see them ship to Jakarta.

Today my quilt hanger will be ready, i will post the picture soon...
And i can't wait also to wait my single pouf from dreamesh living
I think it will be suitable enough for accompany the sofas

Get back to you soon !
