Purple power

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.

Cheers from 2017 TCS NYC Marathon

Cheeeeers :p

Volunteering Time! at 2017 TCS NYC Marathon!

Yuuup..the famous Marathon in town!

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.

Welcome to Cake Boss!

Welcome to Cake Boss!

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!

Life is a journey….

Step aside…

I’m ready to start my adventure in this new year 🙂
Otw to my first chemo in 2015 ♥. Tidak terasa, dari 2 fase kemoterapi yang saya jalani, fase kedua yang mengharuskan saya menjalani 12 kali kemo dengan Taxol dan Herceptin sudah saya tuntaskan setengahnya. Masih ada 6 terapi lagi yang harus saya lewati tiap minggunya di tahun yang baru ini.
Semangaaaaaat… Sang Pemberi Kehidupan tidak pernah tidur dan selalu memberikan skenario hidup terindah untuk kita semua. Percayalah…

Banyak yang saya renungi sejak resmi menjadi penderita kanker payudara bulan Juli tahun 2014 lalu. Terutama segala kenikmatan yang telah dipercayakan oleh-Nya untukku dan keluargaku. Alhamdulillaaaaah…ujian kali ini justru membuat hidup kami lebih baik. Prioritas menjadi jelas, keluarga semakin dekat dan sekali lagi, Tuhan tidak pernah tidur. Segala kekuatan dan semangat yang dititipkan-Nya padaku membuat segalanya jadi lebih mudah dijalani. Tuhan memang sayang kita semua :).

Happy New Year everyone….
