Finally, after 18.5 months after he's born, Noe had his first haircut. We had to form a special team at home to perform this act, consisting of three people. Indi as the chief haircutter, Rani as the cameralady (photography and video), and Yodhi as provider of the logistical matters and training (for using the electric hair trimmer). We grateful for Yodhi's electric hair trimmer which he uses everyday to trim his goatee and armpit hair. Luckily he didn't use it to trim his other hairy parts.
In doing this task, we used the following method: confining the toddler into high chair in front of computer monitor while screening Sesame Street sing along video. It had worked really well, Noe has not been protesting against the fact that he needed to sit down still for an extended period of time, due to Indi's inexperience in toddler hair cutting. We are glad to have saved $20 (equals to Rudy Hadisuwarno Kiddy Cut in PI) or more (other kiddy haircut place in Singapore). And the following is the photo documentation of the big event:
This is "BEFORE"
A few minutes ago, Noe had just picked his nose for the first time. He was using his index finger of his left hand. I hope he won't end up eating his booger instead.
Exactly one month ago Noe was down with series of illnesses and accidents. We were really worried. First, he fell and bumped his nose so hard that he cried inconsolably and the nose became swollen and blue. A few days later, he had a high fever and refused to eat or drink. At night, he couldn’t sleep because he felt really uncomfortable. After he fully recovered from the viral infection, he got food poisoning.
We haven't been posting new entries recently because we're in Indonesia right now and connectivity is very limited. But Noe just said something that surprised me that I couldn't resist to post to the blog right now.
Today is the big day for Bimo. We woke up very early in the morning, since we had to arrive at the venue at 5.30am to dress up. Eyang putri bought Noe a set of Javanese traditional outfit, while uncle Eko bought a blangkon for Noe.
After the religious wedding oath ceremony, the event continued with javanese traditional wedding ceremony.
It's Bimo's shower ceremony, a traditional Javanese purification rite held one day before the wedding ceremony. I would let the photo essay talks.
At 6am Ibu Wies picked us up for the Bandung trip. Noe was really enjoying the road trip. I was a bit freaked out because our driver Mr. Imam constantly took over from the left lane, including using the service lane.
Indi went for a game of golf with bapak Hindro early in the morning and went back home just before lunch. We decided to borrow a car from om Kono. We then drove to Pondok Indah Mall to have lunch with the Tobings at the Indonesian Restaurant at the third floor. I forgot the name, but this restaurant serves all kinds of Indonesian traditional food. When we arrived there we bought some dolls as gift for the Tobing babies. We also went to a CD store at the second storey, where we found Nial Djuliarso at Djulliard, er, I mean Julliard, for a fraction of a price compared to buying the CD in Singapore (from Marko).
