Terlanjur Kondang

We brought back a few packs of krupuk (fish crackers) from Indonesia. Later I realized that the brand of the particular fish cracker was quite funny. Take a look here.

Swim and Election

Last week's Labor Day holiday we went for a morning swim at Natasha's place. Luckily the water was really warm. We went to this shallow pool where the babies could roam around freely. Noe managed to master the skill of walking through water.

West Side Story

Indi and Noe and Yodhi gave me a ticket to the best seat for West Side Story in Esplanade. I was really excited about that!

Oh this photo below was taken by Indi during his turn to watch WSS. He got the cheapest ticket but with best balcony view too.

Noe Said

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.

Bimo's Wedding 1

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.

The groom arrived at the bride's "house" and ushered into the chamber. The groom stepped on an egg and the bride wiped the mess out.

Shower 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.

This is the prayer session.

Bandung Nostalgia

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.
