Lately we are really slow in updating our website. My last entry was 2 months ago, while Indi’s was six months ago. Our main excuses are twofold: First our family goes through a series of change (both the kids and the parents), and secondly, we’re busy taking care our growing child. With one preschooler and one toddler, one can’t afford to sit down in front of the PC and concentrate on writing something.
I've been tracking my time for the past few months. I'm able to do this perhaps because I'm just a housewife with plenty of spare time(Yeah right, the truth is, being a mom is a 24hr job!). Let me share with you about it.
In the beginning...
Indi is very happy that our little website got into the top ten list of english-speaking indonesian bloggers, and the top 100 indonesian blogger in general according to Indonesia Matters. However, I think it is largely based on luck more than the quality of our writings.
PS: Rani did all the hard work around this "griya maya". I am just piggybacking :)
Thank you A. Fatih Syuhud for having selected us (Indi + Rani) as blogger(s) of the week! True enough to his review, we write out of passion of different topics that we encounter in our daily life. Why do we do it? No reason other than wanting to update our family and friends in Indonesia while we're stranded here in Singapore. That's why many have criticized our blog for lacking focused content. But we never really intend to be focused, and as such we will keep on writing whatever comes across our mind at any given moments.
As you might have known, three months ago Yahoo announced that it gave unlimited email storage, and they began to phase in the mailbox upgrade. In June, I became one of the lucky customer who gets unlimited storage.
I arrived in Jakarta on the evening of 4th of July, for my sister’s wedding and Anggi’s sister in law’s wedding. Somehow many people are getting married in July 2007, I think about three or four of my high school friends are getting married during the period, and at least two of my university friends. Interestingly, during this trip, I experience a few “culture shocks”, as I haven’t been home for more than one year. I’ll list down those “shocks” in a two parts: the first one is about internet connectivity, and the second one is about other stuff.
