My First Ramadan in The US

Wow, where did the time go? Without I even realized it, it’s already the last week of Ramadan. This Ramadan marks my first Ramadan after I got married and moved to the US. It means it’s also our first Ramadan together, R and I 🙂 I was inspired by Deny’s blog post about her Ramadan experience in The Netherlands so I decided to share my story too.

The Library

Before I moved here, R told me that there’s a library nearby the house. Although he never been (He’s not much of a reader…), he said that the library seemed to be popular. After I moved, I didn’t visit the library until later, about two months ago. I made a library card (it’s free for residents!), and started to browse the collection.

Pasca Jakarta

Post Selasa Indonesia kali ini sebenernya sudah lama nangkring di draft saya tapi nggak selesai – selesai karena satu dan berbagai hal. Sampai suatu hari Aggy ninggalin komen di post saya yang ini dan nanya apa awalnya susah nggak hidup di kota kecil, karena dia tau kalau saya anak kota banget alias big city girl, hehehe. Jadi, tanpa panjang lebar, saya ceritain yah 🙂  Continue reading “Pasca Jakarta”

A Mini Holiday

My bridesmaid is visiting from Indonesia and I got to have a mini-holiday by staying in West LA for 5 days with her. It was fun! In case you are wondering, I’m not actually based in Los Angeles. Instead, I’m about 45 minutes away, in the suburbs area 🙂 Being the city girl that I am, I always love going to LA because I got to see many kinds of people, a contrast from my simple suburban life.

Sister Sister Sister

We were chilling at home when I received an email from an event tickets marketplace. The email basically saying that HAIM concert would be tonight and prompt me to check out ticket prices. It turned out that we were lucky (wait, let me rephrase – I was lucky because R doesn’t really listen to them), we managed to score 2 tickets for 50% off!

The concert was held in a small theatre about 45 minutes away from where we live, in Pomona. With a few clicks, we purchased the tickets, got ready, and left.

Our First Ever Road Trip!

The trip actually happened during last Christmas break but I haven’t had the chance to write about it until now.. so.. yeah :)))

Although we just got back from Indonesia, R suddenly realised that his office would be closed from Christmas until New Year so we decided to have a mini-vacation. We initially wanted to go to New York but obviously, it was not a good idea because we didn’t plan it in advance so flight ticket prices were skyrocketing!

We then decided to go on a road trip to nearby state and this time we chose to go to Utah. We had 4 days and the trip was super unplanned and I feel like we could’ve planned it better, but anyway it was a fun trip and memorable because it was our first one.
