Productive day

Halo

Today i decide just to stay at home with my lovely son. And i couldnt believe how productive i am today

First thing in the morning, i inflate rubber pool for me and my son


This is a gift from my lovely husband. Picture above show the pool that hasnt perfectly inflate. My son and i play there about an hour. Its so fun.

While playing at the pool, i manage to made choco cupcakes. Not good but not bad i think, my son seemed to enjoy it


And its so many i can make a cake. I add chocolate and sprinkle above the cake


After swim and cook, i saw my sewing machine. I checked pinterest to find something easy (easy to people is hard to me, my bar is very low hehe)

So i made a tote bag, actually i made 2 reversible totebags. I learn something new today, how to turn inside out the strap and how to sew the strap correctly. Check out my totebags. First totebag i use jeans and cotton, and the second i use cotton completely.


I feel very productive today. All my result is faaaaar from perfect but i still satisfied.

Miss Ninis Farewell

Halo

Today is quite unhappy day for me. Today is the last day i get to meet Miss Ninis. She is my son speech therapist. She is resigned from Hermina Ciputat hospital and get another opportunity somewhere else in Tangerang. In the last 5 months i just met here about 10 minutes top twice a week, but it sort of i feel connect with her. She obviously help me to teach my son to communicate better, since i guess i am not good enough mom who can teach her son to talk the right way. 

Last week she texted that today would gonna be her last day to teach Adam (my son), i took this news quite heavy. 

She is a pretty young therapist who is very friendly. 


She said she definetely would gonna miss my son, but definetly me the mother who is feeling like losing her. 

I always hate goodbye and farewell. But this time is for the greater good. I really hope she achieve her dreams. We’ll miss you Miss Ninis.

Starting next week, Adam will learn with miss Tya. I hope they could connect like he and miss ninis does. I really wish adam can talk and communicate soon, but it must be hard to give another goodbye. But if its for the greater good, so it think its the best. I cant imagine someday when adam’s time to leave the house. That wouldnt be easy, especially for a cryer like me. So i think i am gonna use my time. I’ll spend as many time with him. I love you son

Diy: sling bag

Halo

Hai my new lesson is making super simple sling bag. I made it from canvas fabric just like in the photo


The inner is usual cotton fabric. I used a 20 cm zipper, and webbing as the sling. 

First i sew the zipper into the fabric from the inside. I sew both side of the zipper of course. Turn it inside outside and put the webbing as the sling. I still learn to sew and write (obviously). But i quite satisfied with this project.

Diy: toddler pants

Halo

So i learn to sew a lot.. and most of the time i failed. But i get up again and again, sometimes i get up the next day, sometimes many months after hohoho

I made a toddler pants for my son


Its made of soft jeans (because my sewing machine is only portable one not the heavy duty)

I got the pattern from my mother, she is so talented. I love her but i dont have the courage to say it, sorry little segway.

I made those pants only from half meter of fabric, thread (i should have use the dark one though), and elastic rubber

The tools i need were sewing machine, the pattern, scissors, and patient! Very important for a sloppy like me.

I just put the pattern on the fabric cut it out, and sew the part. Last thing is to put the elastic rubber on it waist. And done. 

I realize the sewing are messy, the thread is crooked, i was impatient etc etc

But in my defense my goal now is just to keep doing something at least once a week and write it as a memory later. A memory to remind me someday, that i try to learn something. Sometimes i feel like a failure who cannot do anything, even i cant peel a mango the right way. But this is my way to accept myself that i try to learn.

Woman bag by Lucky

Halo

Today i learn to make a woman bag. Its very simple bag, but since i was impatient and sloppy its very challenging for me. 

Actually i just combine the inner and outer of the bag, fold the top of the bag, and sew the strap. The hardest part is to sew the strap, because it was too thick and my sewing machine cant handle it. So i finished it by hand sew. 

Even its very far from good or tidy, i am pretty happy because i did it. You know, sometimes we get the satisfaction after finish something, even the result is not as we expected. I just hope i dont stop to learn, write, love, and pray

Lucky does cook: failed arem arem

Halo

Today i learned how to make arem arem. And like you can see in the title, i failed.

Arem arem is mix of a very smooth rice and vegetables in a leaf. 

Its very delicious, so i attempted to make it. 

The ingredients are: rice, coconut milk, carrot, onion and garlic as the filling

Its actually very simple to make it: i just need to boiled the rice and coconut milk until it become rice. Than fry the onion, garlic, and carrot. Then combine those two on banana leaves. And steam about 15 minutes. And its done. 

I think my mistake is i didnt steam it in a right time, so the rice still looks like rice not like “lontong” (pardon, i dont know what lontong in english). 

I failed but thats okay, i can evaluate my mistake because i have try.

Cat cafe

Halo

Yesterday my son and i went to cat cafe in Bintaro. We can eat snacks and drinks while petting the cat! Its so fun, even my son refuse to go home. 

We went there on happy hour so its only cost 25k idr/hour/person for being there. Meal and beverage exclude those price. 

And its worth it!! Definetely going back there again soon i have the chance.

Here are the glimpse of the very beautiful cats there. 


Those cats have lovely names too, alfonso, piko, lilo. Those cat are fat because they have been sterilized for their own good. Also they already vaccinated so its safe for us. 

The place is very clean, i think the red velvet is delicious, the waiter (or is she the owner?) is very friendly. 

 We are so happy.

New lesson: gardening

Halo

Today i learn (not so) new lesson. Gardening!!

I plant chilli, carrot, sunflower, etc


Day 1

I really hope those plants grow as i expected. Last year i tried to grow some plants but i failed. The reason of my failure likely because i use too many seeds. I evaluate my mistake and try one more time. Finger crossed!!
