Catching Adachi-Hanabi Before Another Trip to Indonesia


Summer is time for fireworks!
And if you ever happened to see fireworks in Japan (called “hanabi”), I tell you that it’s THE BEST!
Hanabi season usually starts at July when summer vacation for students is ongoing, then continues in a row during August in which obon yasumi (considered as summer holiday for the companies) also takes places. Being sponsored by the government across the country, it’s often said like a moment to show the prestige of each organizer (aka city holder) and an attempt to put the proud of the residents’ hearts since their taxes also contribute to this exhibition 😀

Okay, so because of our plan to visit Indonesia (aka “mudik”) in August, we looked for the chance to see hanabi beforehand. We finally went to this No.2 Famous Tokyo Fireworks last Saturday (2017/07/22) and captured almost full-time show either in videos and pictures while persuading a 2-years-old toddler who was getting scared to all those explosion sounds :))

Hallo, German!


Checked in another leading country in the world, my first European experience ever, and quickly firmed up that Japan is still no. 1 we can expect for convenience.. and might be also for all perfection in life only if they’re religious and not workaholic 😄😄😄. Alhamdulillah..

When the Library Made Us Upset..


#ea5512

My heart was breaking and I felt so sorry to Musa this morning. There was an interesting event in the library we’re used to go that’s only available this summer: Play and Learn for Age 1-3 with experts invited. Musa had found his toy and played with other kids for few minutes before we were told about signing up and not allowed to join them at all because we missed to register T_T. The coordinator said the program has been full for all weeks with no clue how many kids they want to keep and why we can’t ask to be waiting list. There was a participant leaving earlier yet we were not offered to go in -_-.

I was so upset. We are loyal participant of library’s story time every week and I looked forward to join this program since a month ago. Recent weeks I was so busy with trips plus events and didn’t pay attention to event details. However, I always kept in mind that I would have event on June, 3. See my second photo! That is the ONLY publication I know about this event. I put it on my working table and saw it every day, but the information “registration is required” was failed to catch my focus. It’s too little between long text, huh? Some other mommies looked misguide too.

Lesson learned:
– Read information carefully
– Don’t be a procastinator. If you have read an instruction, there’s usually a time limit to follow it, so just do immediately
– I wish I could design better advertisement than this so people don’t miss the important thing to do. Hahahaha

4th Anniversary Dinner


#ea5512 With the most precious gift from Allah #musaromas, 4th anniversary dinner last night wasn’t necessary to be either high budget or romantic.. 😜😝 Yet, the food was such a blast for us! That #ThaiFriedRice tasted very similar to street-food cart in Indonesia we miss aaaaall the time! Ohhh so touching 😂😂😂

A plate costed less than $12 was filling enough for two persons and we got a basket of crackers too. Yum! Lucky us to have this old restaurant as our neighbor 😁😭

P.S.: I do thinking to write about my feeling and sharing our experience so far in sailing this marriage boat. However, our attention is still on another event coming up this weekend. May is super duper BUSY and SPECIAL month. Thank you so much for those who have been participating in our survey on Facebook 🙂
