Marhaban ya Ramadhan

Alhamdulillah, the holy Ramadhan, the best and blessed month better than 1000 months, has arrived.

Wishing you all, my dearest Moslem sisters and brothers,  a blessed and solemn Ramadhan


Happy Earth Day

Never forget that we only have one earth, that we need to take care of till the end of our lives.

Our home. Our planet. Our shared future!

I know there are many simple yet important things we can do to save our beloved earth. Joining the earth hour is one, while you can also stop littering, save the water, use energy wisely, stop using plastic, bring your environmental bag and tumbler everywhere, plant more trees dan reduce, reuse as well as recycle.

The pandemic has shown us how taking a break, a big break, is actually good for our earth. Cleaner sky, river, and air. It makes me wonder whether all the damages on earth are simply caused by us :(.

Here are some photos my hubby and I took along our journey here and there which should remind me,- and all of us – how beautiful mother nature is. And we have to keep here clean and beautiful.

Happy Earth Day

Let’s keep our earth clean, healthy and beautiful

Welcome to Tokyo Disney Sea 2

Let’s continue our journey to Tokyo Disney Sea, shall we?

So, have I mentioned to you why I choose Tokyo Disney Sea instead of Tokyo Disneyland?

Well, after consulting some friends who have been visiting this place before, they sort of suggested me to go visit the Disney Sea as I have visited other Disneyland before. I have come to the ones in Paris – my first Disneyland ever, and in Florida – the mother of it all :). I have to admit some parks and features on those two Disneyland are similar. But Disney Sea in only available in Tokyo, right? Please correct me if I’m wrong. So I finally decided to go here and hopefully I can come back to Tokyo for another episode of Disneyland mayhem with my kids :).

Welcome to Tokyo Disneyland .. before heading to Tokyo Disney Sea

So, on my way back to Jakarta after almost 5 year assignment in New York City, I chose ANA so that I can have a transit in Tokyo. I stopped at Narita at night, spent some time in the airport waiting for the next morning, and put my luggages at the luggage drop machine you can easily find in the airport. Then from there, I took the train to go to Disneyland, which is not that complicated at all. On the way back to the airport, I took the bus straight to Narita as I was already super exhausted.

Tokyo Disney Sea

There’s a perk of going there early in the morning, as I didn’t really have to wait for too long queueing for the entry ticket. But it was quite packed as it was still summer break. Kids, adults and everyone in between were flocking to this lovely theme park.

Well, let me share more photos from Tokyo Disney Sea. In short, I have tons of fun there and I want to go back there soon with Udi, Bo et Obi. Amen to that, please :).

Welcome to Tokyo DisneySea

Enjoying Work From Home and Stay at Home session?

I hope you do.. Because I’m entering the second week of our #SocialDistancing and #WorkFromHome episode.

While have a little more time at hands, I decided to dig up my photo album and voilaaa, I end up with thousands of them, particularly from my smartphone. I have to admit I haven’t really got time to transfer them and now I’m complaining as my phone’s memories are depleting.

So here we go.

A little photo album from my visit to Tokyo Seaworld back in August 2018. I know,’s almost 2 years ago but hey, better late than never! And I really, really enjoyed visiting this theme park! This is my 3rd Disney World I have ever visited after Disneyland in Paris and in Florida. Truly my happy place!

I can share more but I guess I will make it into two posts instead of one :).

Ready to see more? stick around and I will be back for sure!



IMG_4387Hi everyone,

I haven’t updated this blog for a long time indeed. Feels like ages! Until I received a gentle reminder and I decided to revisit this lovely blog of mine. At the same time, we are all facing the same fight now, Corona Virus or COVID – 19.

At the beginning of March, 2020, President Joko Widodo officially announced that Indonesia has the first two confirmed cases of Corona Virus infection. Although rather late compared to the surrounding countries, particularly, Singapore, immediately the first thing we were advised to do was to remain calm, to take care of our health and to protect others.


Easy to say, but not that easy to implement, I should say.  In the beginning, many were wondering what Corona Virus was and tended to take it for granted, despite the fact countries across the globe were experiencing the soaring numbers of confirmed cases. Even now, as the numbers of confirmed cases are soaring high steadily, there are some who think that they will not be affected by it.

Now, the world has witnessed the spread of Corona Virus, or officially named COVID – 19, at the alarming speed. Not only it is super contagious, but it is deadly to some people as well. Compared to Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrom (SARS) or Middle East Respiratory Syndrom (MERS) that occured before, COVID – 19 is something else, something more dangerous and unpredictable, as we do not know much about it. Up until now, experts and scientists are still working on finding the cure.

I am not going to say or give you all those statistics about the spread, the cases or even the death toll. You know exactly where you can get them accurately on daily basis.

I just want to add my voice to ensure everyone is on the same page on this battle.


And we have to do something to fight it back. All of us. Together!

There are two basic things that we can do, at personal basis, to help improve this situation. First, try not to get infected and second, do not infect others if you are affected already. It might sound very simple yet a lot is entailed.

There are many ways we can do to protect each other.  Some of them are very basic hygiene techniques such as, among others, washing our hands with soap and running water frequently; maintaining social distancing; avoiding touching eyes, nose and mouth, practicing respiratory hygiene; and seeking medical care early when you have fever, cough and difficulty breathing. Maintaining healthy life and reinforcing our immune system are compulsory as well. Social distancing is a must and do stay at home to ensure we cut the transmission chain, unless you have an urgent situation which requires you to go out.

Discipline and commitment are the keys.

And we all can do that!

Stay healthy and safe, everyone!
