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.

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.

Life on mars

Life on mars is my term to say live in somewhere i dont know. Its not that i dont know where i am now, it just i dont know what to do now. I am a lousy mother, a bad parent you might say i wont be offended because it’s kinda true. I am not earning anything, i just lean to my husband for life. 

I feel like a failure sometimes.

But i like to think i still have hope. Dont lose hope., thats all the people said right?

I want to believe that even on my age, i can still fight for my future. Is it okay?never late to learn and fight right? I have many wishes. I want to be a great mother, i want to be a good homecook, have a garden, great bussiness, great using sew machine, good in crocheting, at least able to speak on 5 languages, work in media or film, going to usa, going to mecca, understand microsoft project, have my own home and apartment, have spare car, can drive motorcycle, play the piano and guitar, study and work overseas, be happy. Could i accomplish all of them? So many of them. I can do everything right? Or am i just naive?

Rainbow Connection

I just listened to a song from bunheads series. I like the song.. And i searched the lyric and i didnt understand what it is.. But i cried.
