Back to School

Bella started going to kindergarden again yesterday after three weeks holiday. She was so exciting unfortunately many children are still in their holiday. Only four children attended the class yesterday and today is even worse, only two including her. Luckily her favorite teacher, Ole Petter, is there, so she’s not too sad. She really likes him and he also cares for her. He always says that Bella is his best friend :). Actually he’s not her teacher anymore coz he has been rotated to another class but he sometimes comes over to visit her. And I do appreciate it. Isn’t he a good teacher?

White-dude Singing West Sumatran Song

Although I spent most of my life in Bandung and Jakarta, originally I'm from West Sumatra. The people from West Sumatra is called urang minang. Of course as a urang minang, I like to hear our traditional songs. This video is very special to me because the song was sung by an Australian who learnt this song while travelling in the Minangkabau region of West Sumatra.

Birthday Girl

Brenda had her second birthday on 24th June. I made a little party to celebrate her birthday and invited only my parents-in-law and few neighbours. Her height is 85 cm now. How fast time flies. Feels like yesterday when I introduced her into this world. And look at her now. She looks bigger than her age and beautiful of course :) Only Allah knows how much I love her. I wish her becoming a pious girl when she grows up.

Happy birthday my dearest Brenda
I love you
And for that I am happy
And for that you are happy.
