other half, year by year

Just blogwalking to one of my friend's blog, seeing how she posted so much photos with her soulmate. Then realize, that I didnt write much about my other half. Since I crowned as a mother (of two!), my universe turned upside down. It doesn't mean I put him aside, but, we actually, I and him, put our concern to our lil ones. Well, it happens to everyone, I guess.

But, this post, doesn't mean I wanna show how is our romance life goes, but again, it is for me. To remind the path I chosed, how we danced trough the music of life, and how we still survive.

Hand in hand.

Then I found out, I love him even more


early 2005
I get involved in a band, girls band actualy. All the member of band wanted to join an music community at campus, I actually, wasn't interested. At all.  Because I already joined a campus radio, that took most of my time and energy. That night, with a very heavy step to campus, I attended the meeting. And I met him.

Lil convo that warmed us, I and him easily get closed. Days ahead,  we accidentally met up in other music event. Then I realised, He ALSO joined the same radio with me (!!!) but, I never knew for the first place. haha.

months went by, we got more close each other, I admired him even more, especially when I knew how he struggled along in his life. Life teached him alot.

May 2005, was a time, we never forget, How we decided to walk together.
The rest of the year, I accompanied and witnessed him to finish his study and gained bachelor degree, and also witnessing his first job.


2006
After he finished his study, my campus life became lousy. We just met on weekend, and how I always tried to meet him whenever I could. I finally finished my bachelor degree, and started to find my own job. I took parttime work as commercial announcer in my city, that took most of the time at weekend. But he, again, really patience to wait for me during on air time.


2007

Early 2007, I had my first full time job. My office not really close to him, but he tried to meet me once or twice a week, and always met up at weekend. Always!
He had new opportunity at pharmacy. We still managed to meet if we could during office hour. there was one time, when He badly sick, and had to stay at hospital for some days, it broke my heart, since I couldn't be there for him everyday. But I managed one whole day to look after him. I can't forget that day.

2008
He moved again to other company, a consumer good one. That year, our story was not good. At all. Too much fights, too much hates. Met other guy. He met other woman. It was almost, an end tunnel for us. But at the end, we got back on track. To our track. Phew...
End of year, we traveled together, with my whole family to central java.


2009

We got mor confirmed each other, put our dreams at same basket, and plan for higher level. Marriage!After all ups and downs, We decided, let's embrace, together! We plan for engagement in the same year, August 16th. The rest of the year, prepared for the wedding day. Ah yeach, he was offered a better opportunity at  Bank.

2010
We got married!  made our very first trip as husband and wife to Makassar and Toraja
Then got pregnant too, and had a baby. All the world turned upside down. Then the world no longer You and Me,
But You, and Me and Allena

2011
We traveled! To Phuket, Bali and Spore. End of year, we decided to live alone, seperately from my parents.

2012
We moved to our lil home. Had our very first car. And started building our castle. It was the time when first-car-euphoria happened. We traveled to many place by car. It was a year also full of tears, because so many things changed since we lived alone. Took lot of energy, tears, and moneyyyy. We also made a trip to Bali.


2013

We made more trips this year. To KL, Bali, Yogya and Bangkok. We became more solid each other. It was a year, we renovated our lil home to become more comfort for us. We felt complete! But, At the end, we decided to give Allena a sibling. Oh I forgot, there was a time when we had big argue and fight, that was become a turning point for both of us. We were sorry that for happened, but we learned a lot from that moment.


2014

We went to our gynecolog, and decided a second child. Surprisingly, on February, I found two straps on my test pack. A bundle of joy!
We made a trip to Penang and Padang. I think, those trips as highlight for our adventure by three. Ah we also sold our dearly car, regarding to welcome our new member, we need a bigger car :'(
Then, Sena come to complete our happiness.

Slow cooker, temanku..

Berhubung bukan ratu dapur...alias bener2 ga ngerti alat perang di dapur, saya bener2 terbantu dengan penemuan slowcooker utk memasak makanan allena

Buat saya yg kerja, waktunya ga banyak utk Allena, tapi pengen terlibat banyaaaaak dalam urusan yang masuk ke perut allena, jadilah alat ini sangat membantu. Klo digodok (ya itulah, bahasa emak2, artinya dimasak dalem rantang, tpi dikasih wadah air dibawahnya, trus dimasak agak lama di kompor, kira2 gtu), ga akan sempet utk saya yang berangkat subuh, pulang isya. Sebetulnya bisa aja, tp saya harus bangun jam 3 pagi, untuk berkutat dengan kentang, wortel, zukini dan teman-temannya. Duh rempong juga ya.. Secara roh saya jg masih wara wiri kali, hehehe.

Sebetulnya bisa juga saya titipkan urusan masak memasak ini dengan ibu saya, ato dengan ART di rumah, tapi kok ya rasanya saya ga mau. Cukup deh, saya ga bisa 24 hr/7 days di dekat Allena, jangan sampe masalah makannya, saya jg ga bisa handle. Sebetulnya ini untuk menghapus rasa bersalah aj…

10-baby-thingy must have item (11! i revised)

ini postingan sebetulnya udah lamaaa bgt pengen dibuat,  tapi ga sempet2. Baru sempet kepikiran, karena ini merupakan pengalaman pribadi saya sendiri, dan baru kerasa pas anak kedua, ada beberapa barang yang ternyata lumayan pricey, tapi worth to have, malahan must have karena sangat bermanfaat. oke, let's start..
1. Pompa ASI saya ingatkan yaah, ini memang berdasarkan pengalaman saya. Mungkin di ibu baru lainnya, item ini akan tidak diperlukan. Semuanya depends on her condition. Kondisi saya? saya ibu bekerja. Untuk saya pompa ASI sangat bermanfaat, untuk mensupport saya agar bisa ASI exclusif hingga 2 tahun. Pengalaman dengan Allena, saya pumping sampai H-1 Allena usia 2 tahun, dan berhasil disapih di usia 30 bulan. Saya pakai pompa ASI, merk Medela, mini electric. Pompa ini saya peroleh dari lungsuran kakak saya. Saya sempat pakai 2 type, Medela Harmony (manual), itu pun lungsuran kakak saya. Tetapi ternyata partnya gampang banget robek, apalagi type pemakaian seperti saya, yan…

staycation: The 101 hotel and resort bogor

Mendadak staycation jadi turis sehari di kota sendiri
November ini blass kita cuma menikmati kota Bogor. Rencana ultah anak-anak di pertengahan bulan, bikin ngerem (budget) dan juga nyicil persiapan (ini sebenernya ga jelas jg sik, hahahah).  Tapi yang jelas wiken, kdg abis waktu cm buat balikin nyawa aja buat persiapan weekdays berikutnya hiihihhi.
Trus tiba2 rezeki dateng, suami bilang, dia dapet voucher nginep di The 101 hotel Bogor. Ahhh asikkk, lgsg semangad packing bwt staycationan.
hari sabtu tiba, saya memastikan rumah beres dulu. Setelah masak, nyiapin anak2 (mandi makan) dan bibi kesayangan bantu beresin rumah, baru deh kita siap2 berangkat. Hari itu bertepatan pula dengan konser piano 2 sepupu Allena, jadi skedul kami adalah, pergi ke hotel, cek in dan langsung menuju tempat konser (yang dilaksanakan di sebuah hotel lain di bogor).
Saya udah penasaran bgt sama hotel ini, lebih kepada karena lokasinya, yang berada di sentra kuliner pecinan khas Bogor. Buat turis dari Jakarta,…
