Super excited to welcome another brilliant Indonesian Fashion Designer to New York City, especially to NYFW 2018!
This time we have Vivi Zubedi, a famous hijab designer from Indonesia, joining those emerging designers for one of the world’s most-wanted-and-sought fashion show. Proudly presenting Urang Banua, Vivi is back with strong message: Women Empowerment! As Vivi traveled to the remote area in South Kalimantan, she met many strong, inspiring women producing the hand-woven Sasirangan and Tenun Pagatan, which became the main fabrics used in Vivi’s collections for NYFW 2018.
Untukmu, Banua! Vivi Zubedi for NYFW 2018

Wishing you nothing but the best for the coming future, Abang Booooo!
11 years old already! How time flew! And I remember vividly when we were so rejoiced in welcoming me you to this world! My tiny baby, born in Melbourne while we were studying, is now one big, healthy 6th grade boy who enjoys school and makes the most of it!
Blessed you always, honey! May Allah always shower you with His love, blessings, and protections!

December is certainly a great month for the Frakarsas :).
We are celebrating 3 birthday and 1 anniversary! How fun!
So now, to start this joyous month, we celebrated Obi’s 7th birthday. My baby girl who is no longer tiny nor baby :). May Allah SWT always protect you, love, wherever you are and in every step of your way. Bismillahirrahmanirrahim..

Gosh I don’t know how long I haven’t updated my page here in mamaboetobi.wordpress.com :).
It’s been too long indeed but better late than never, right
So, here’s to the purple power I have beautifully arranged on my desk this morning. Brighten up my day in this crazily cold Friday morning. The weather in NYC just dived down to subzero now. So, stay warm, folks.

I have never dreamed of running any race or tournament, let alone joining marathon. I guess I am going to need 10 years or more for practices before joining one hehehe. But since last year, I tried 5K and joined the UN Run or Abbott Dash to the Finish Line. I have to admit I enjoyed it! I never thought I have enough courage (and extra energy) to do so.
And this year, I also managed to volunteer at Marshall Zone 3 at the Finish Line for 2017 TCS NYC Marathon! It was truly an experience of a life time and there I was with Erma et Angie who also joined the volunteer.

We just went to New Jersey and deliberately looking for Carlo’s Bake Shop, the Cake Boss!
You know that, right?
I have my cousin and friend coming from Indonesia and they both are the fans of Buddy from Carlo’s Bake Shop and his famous reality show. For sure we all got sooo excited looking at those yummy cakes and cookies they have here!

It’s the first working day of 2016 and boy, I’m so excited 🙂
This morning, everything looks bright. Super sunny yaaaa kelihatan..
But don’t get fooled.
Yet it’s -3 C 😇😇
The whole week is gonna be freezing 🙂🙂🙂
Winter is surely here, I guess..
Better get ready…I just can’t wait to use all those colorful scarves, beanies and gloves to keep me warm. Let alone those tick socks and knee-up boots for my daily commuting. And..more session in the kitchen as well I suppose, as we will crave for more and more comfort food :).
Happy winter, y’all 😇😘😇😘
Stay warm, happy and healthy :)- with Rudi, Bo, and Obi at Queensboro Bridge Pedestrian & Bike Path
