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.
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.
R finished work early yesterday and we had to go to a relative’s house in the afternoon. The house is located in Huntington Beach, approximately 15 minutes away from where we live. Though I’ve been to Huntington Beach many times, I actually have never been to the part where the house is located, near Huntington Harbour. It’s a nice area, full of nice houses and the sight of yachts.
My love for the beach started when I lived in Bournemouth. It was a small beach town and although I didn’t live by the beach, the beach is only a mere 15 minutes away from where I lived. Although it was cold at most times, I used to go to the beach after class or after I got off from work, just to enjoy the atmosphere while waiting for sunset.
Hey, it’s been over 100 days since I arrived here in the US. I guess it’s true what they say, time flies when you are having fun 🙂
Not sure if anyone is really interested but here’s what have happened so far:
Back in Jakarta, I was a heavy coffee drinker. Along with coffee shop boom there, I got myself more accustomed to drinking coffee and started to think that Starbucks coffee has no taste :p Going to coffee shops or roaster was almost a daily routine as it was easy and considerably cheap.
Since I’m currently being a full-time housewife, I’d like to keep myself busy in the kitchen. Being in the early days of our marriage, our living premises is not yet ideal but we try to make do with what we have. Meaning, I can’t turn into Martha Stewart with her glossy state-of-the-art kitchen yet :P.
