Precious moments in Life

Little devil vs angel

Still fresh in my mind this little boy pertama kali datang ke rumah gue bulan May buat ngeles mandarin.. susahnya di suruh nulis.. dan nulisnya pun acak-acakan.. mesti disogok permen pula.. Tabiatnya jelek dan kalo lagi ga mau nulis, beneran ga mau.. my 1st impression was “oh my God..! This little devil yang susah diatur.. so wasting my time”

Trus ketabrak libur lama.. akhirnya bulan Juli kemarin nyokapnya minta les lagi, dan kali ini sesuai agreement gue yang ke rumah dia.

Still the same yaa.. the first week… the second week.. pas giliran dia les, pasti terulang drama yang sama which is crying and hysterical screaming “ga mau nulissss.. ” dan guling-guling di lantai.. 😬😩😰😱

Kalo kokonya sih no problem, masi bisa dihandle, tapi dedenya ini yang too much drama, ngebujukin aja bisa abis 1/2 jam.. lebih lama dari waktu ngelesnya.. fiuhhh.. 😅

After that, i used many ways to teach him mandarin without too much drama dan tangisan berdarah.. later on i found out he got problem in reading karena belum hapal alfabet.. pantes aja ngajarin pinyin mandarin dia ga bisa baca. Alhasil anaknya jadi stress dan ga mau belajar mandarin.

Luckily, the third week i found a solution. I use drawing and focus on Hanzi, no more pinyin. As long he can understand the meaning, can speak the correct pronunciation and get used to write step of hanzi, that’s it! that’s my goals!

Then miracle happened, the fourth week, nih anak jadi baik banget. Then i used another method which is read mandarin story book everytime start the lesson, let him play and study at the same time, sing a mandarin song, then draw many pictures for him to match with the chinese character. At the end of the lesson, i gave him sticker and homework.

Each of them have a wall of sticker. Koko di kanan, dede di kiri. Trus mereka compete sapa yg paling banyak.

Minggu-minggu berikutnya berlangsung damai, tentram and lots of fun. They like homework and nulis hanzinya makin rapi. Even the school teacher also write the progress in the weekly report. I am so happy. Mothernya jg kaget. Tapi syukurlah semua bisa terkendali.

Sangat disayangkan.. i am leaving soon, so today is my last day teaching them. He is my little angel now. So cute, funny and i’m gonna miss him, little Marvel and Kenzie. Hope we can meet again..

Love you,

3 in 1

3 places in 1 day..

Bermula dari tanggal 20 Aug jam 12 teng kita berangkat ke The Breeze BSD untuk ketemu mimi.. untuk late birthday celebration, mimi treat us Jitlada Thai food. As usual when girls met, they talk a lot from A to Z.. so do we! Dari Jitlada pindah ke Jco.. dari jam 1 sampe jam 5.. dan ga lupa sambil foto-foto juga.. it’s quite a good weather that day..

From breeze, kita lewatin scientia gading, jadi skalian mampir ke tempat mami. Dia baru balik dari Lampung. Trus kita ke pergi makan kuetiaw di xinmei dan ke sms foto untuk visa dan makan di kulinernya. Makan es potong nyonya.. that’s it! Soalnya uda too full.. kuliner itu sebenarnya enak karena sejauh mata memandang semua makanan.. tapi sejauh mata memandang juga semua orang.. so walaupun kepengen makan ini ono, ngeliat antrian aja uda bikin males, belum lg ngantri beli voucher.. and kalo bole dibandingkan, sebenarnya makanan di kuliner lebih mahal dari harga yang originalnya.. ada plus minus lah.. lebih baik kita foto-foto ajah deh.. 😅

Keluar dari sms pun uda jam 20.30 lewat. Tapi berhubung kata mami tadi dia dari airport ngelewatin maze market, so kita langsung lanjutin ke Lantern Festival yang di maze. Sampe sana uda hampir jam 21.15 an, harga tiket malam sih 35rb, tapi kita pikir uda kemaleman untuk ngiterin sampe ke dalam, it’s quite a big area. So, kita foto2 di luarnya aja.. hehehe..

Oke that’s our story for today.. cape but happy.. that we can spend time together with friend and family.

Unforgetable memories!

Also want to thank mimi for this beautiful necklace.

CNY 2017

Seems like I am very active to write blog these few days..

I am catching time to clear my “debts”. 😅

This story is about chinese new year 2017.

Mom came back for a month. If i haven’t told you before, we got fight and cold war for many months since May 2016 until end of year 2016. I stopped communicate with her. It’s because she treat me unjustly and wrongly blame me for something that i did not do. I try to explain but she won’t listen and keep cursing me, and told me that she won’t admit me as daughter anymore. Then what..!? After many months she found out the truth and she came to me. Although she didn’t say sorry (elder’s ego), but she started to call me.

I can forgive her, but need sometime to forget. I write on this blog just to remind myself if i become parent one day, please listen to children’s explanation before you judge. And say sorry to children is not a worst thing to do and i believe it won’t hurt the elder’s ego.

Ok, that’s already out of topic, we back to CNY story, so my mom came back for a month, we met up couple times, although still have feeling barrier, but we respect each other and things run well.

As usual ritual of CNY, we visited elders since we are the youngest in the family.

Also some CNY celebrations at SMB school and PCI. I have duties as MC, perform sanjuban and join the choir. This time CNY, the PCI lecturer made jiaozi (chinese dumpling) for students. In chinese tradition, eating jiaozi at new year is a must, means 吉利 (lucky, prosperous), because the shape of dumpling is looks like shoe-shaped gold (元宝 yuanbao).

Last post! This was our born day story on April 2017. As usual, we have some celebrations with family and best friends.

This year birthday, I really touched because my cousin prepared cake for me, my grandma & godmom gave me a big red pocket blessing, and friends precious present. I was touched not because of the gift, but the attention and caring that shower me. I really thank God for placing them next to me.

It was also a sad day for Suri, because her pap passed away. Deep condolences! She came back for a week, and the last day before she went back to oz, we had lunch together at red bean.

This life is not eternal, just a road that we need to go through. Cherish every moments! Live happily and die without regret..

Wish that my life can be a blessing for others 🙏

Keep humble..

Be wise..

Stay positive..

Amien.

Passed!

Every year I have my own studying target, and I push myself to reach that target.

This is how I keep my self on track. If not like that, I will slow down, relax and lost in the jungle.. hahaha.

You can say that I am too hard to myself. But this is what I learnt from experience. In the past, I am ‘too good’ to myself, always pamper myself and give up every time I feel the condition is not supporting. As the result, I can’t even finish my bachelor degree. So now, I must push myself very hard and keep moving forward although it’s a bit late. Better late then never, isn’t it?

Last June I took HSK 5 and i passed it with the score : 274 of 300. I am very proud of myself because within two years I can achieve it. Lucky is also playing a part, but studying with strategy and correct direction is the best way to reach your target.

Keep fighting! Next target is HSK 6!

Start counting days…

and i will keep counting the days until i come back..

Feeling campur aduk.. happy, excited, worry, ga tega ninggalin hubby and anak-anak murid.. tapi decided to be tough and the most important want to finish it as soon as possible. 9 months should be quite fast, right? 💪💪 加油!we sure still can keep in touch everyday, thanks to the advanced tech such as video call, internet, and all sosmed.

Kata hubby, don’t use too much feeling, because it’s hurt! Yeah bener juga sih, ini aja pas nulis kalo pikir bakal pisah for 9 months uda tears duluan.. 😭😢

But, we must be strong. I have started this road and i should complete it in order to make everything go smoothly in future, not go-round to zero again. I really appreciate the courage and continuous support that my hubby gives me. He knows me well. My passion for studying, my incomplete task that need to finish, our dreams, our family goals. Thank you honey! I’m sure will not let you down!

God, please keep us safe and altough we will be in different country, please protect our relationship so it’ll getting stronger and we can keep supporting each other and achieve our dreams together as a team!

There are some quotes that i wish can always remind us and make you out there that also face a same situation to have courages to sacrifice and support each other.

God be with us.. now and forever 🙏

Utang yang sempat terlupakan… story july-dec 2016!

Unbelievable, uda setaun berlalu.. pepatah China bilang:

光阴似箭 time flies like an arrow.

Jujur aja gue sendiri pun uda almost lupa apa aja yang terjadi taun 2016 2nd semester, untung aja ada foto-foto di facebook yang bisa remind.

Kita dapat 2 quite big project ngajar expat China & Taiwan untuk bulan juli-september sebanyak 3 kelas dan ada 1 kelas ngajar orang lokalnya mandarin. Tuhan selalu tau dan mencukupkan.. praise the Lord! Bersyukur bisa menambah jam terbang, nambah nominal di account dan juga nambahin temen-temen baru.

Bulan November 2016 uda anniversary kita yang ke 7. Whattt??!.. ga berasa banget.. hahaha.. rasanya masi kek pacaran, soalnya belum ada ekornya.. Dan ga ada perayaan khusus..hahaha.. ga romantis? Yeah, tiap hari kita juga makan-makan, jadi everyday have celebration deh 😂. Anyway, kita tetap bersyukur aja buat kesempatan yang dikasi, menikmati saat-saat berduaan.. Dan kita selalu meyakini “semua indah pada waktu Nya”

Last but not least, adalah waktu kebersamaan dengan keluarga dan ritual old and new bersama tetangga sekitar. Happy to be part of Ubud Kencana big family. Seperti taun-taun sebelumnya, old and new itu waktu kumpul-kumpul dengan neighbors. Di tengah kesibukan, mungkin biasanya cuma lempar senyum, skrg bisa ngobrol dan santai sejenak.

Tetap bersyukur walau langit tidak selalu biru..

Tetap bersyukur walau hujan dan badai menerpa..

Kuyakin selalu, Tuhan punya rencana indah buat setiap hamba-Nya.. aminn 🙏
