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.
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.
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.
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:
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.
I’ve lost my dad, both of my grandpas and one of my grandmas before I turned 21. So I really thought that I am used to losing someone. I was wrong. I can never get used to the feeling of losing someone that you care about.
