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.

Welcoming winter :)


Haiii haiii…Happy New Year, everyone πŸ™‚

It’s the first working day of 2016 and boy, I’m so excited πŸ™‚

This morning, everything looks bright. Super sunny yaaaa kelihatan..

But don’t get fooled.
Yet it’s -3 C πŸ˜‡πŸ˜‡
The whole week is gonna be freezing πŸ™‚πŸ™‚πŸ™‚

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 πŸ˜‡πŸ˜˜πŸ˜‡πŸ˜˜

Stay warm, happy and healthy :)- with Rudi, Bo, and Obi at Queensboro Bridge Pedestrian & Bike Path

PS 122 in winter

Bo’s school this morning. …

Brrr…so cold and the snow was just hurdling down with the wind..
We didn’t get a chance to pose for our daily selfie today due to the cold and the heavy snow ❄❄❄. Well, it’s better getting him safe and warm inside quickly before the cold bites.
But for sure, he’s in high spirit for the gym today…Way to go Bang :).

Have fun at school ya bang.. – with Rudi, Bo, and Obi

❄❄❄❄ –

Sepertinya, hari ini adalah hari yang paling dingin..Minus 14 sajaaa saudara-saudaraaaa ;o. Untungnya kami semua sudah siap. Yuuup, suka tidak suka, winter is here to stay, so better get ready, people :).

Minggu sesudah natal kami sekeluarga sudah melengkapi winter gear yang ada. Mulai dari thermal underwear, insulated jacket, gloves and beanies, sampai kaos kaki extra hangat. Benar-benar membantu lhoooo.

And frankly, winter di NYC beda deeeh rasanya dengan winter di Jenewa. Walaupun Swiss notabene dikelilingi pegunungan salju juga, tapi winter di Jenewa jarang dihiasi dengan angin yang merontokkan tulang seperti di NYC. Mungkin karena NYC memang dikelilingi sumber air alias sungai yang besar-besar seperti Hudson and East river, sementara Jenewa hanya ada Lac leman (yang super besar juga sebenernya). Entahlah..yang pasti , kesimpulannya winter di Jenewa lebih hangat :).

Well,Β mari kita nikmatiΒ winterΒ pertama di NYC ini πŸ™‚

Enjoying winter at Deer Lake, Lake Wallenpaupack estate, Pennsylvania

Menikmati danau bekuuuuu. ..

The only thing Bo was asking was when he could play with his snow slide :)…

Well, he wanted to do so since the beginning of winter here in NY, but we haven’t really got a chance to go to the ski resort or the surrounding areas where snow is tick enough for the kids to play :). Until last weekend, when we decided to go to Pocono mountain area. Well, it’s the Lake Wallenpaupack area to be exact. It took 2.5 hour drive from New York City but it worth the efforts :0
Sooooo….Off you go, Bang…
Enjooooy the snow…
