When Did I Learn to Read?

Now that Noe is having full day activities at Carpe Diem, we noticed that they have already taught him basic alphabet recognition. Sometimes he would point at similar letters that appear in public domain and say "Same... same" (referring to the letters "N" that appear at different places).

What's next? Is he going to learn how to read at age 3? Is he going to start writing at age 4?

Osama Making Music for Obama

Who would have guessed that Osama contributed to a great piece of music for Obama? This Osama was playing the bass, setting the blues rhythm with Pearl Jam's drummer Matt Cameron, under the direction of Bergevin Brothers and along with many other volunteers, such as the Total Experience Gospel. The hair on the back of my neck stood up when the choir started singing!

My Ankle

I am pissed off by whoever did the paving along Labrador Park using limestone (or whatever material) that becomes slippery when wet. It was raining so I slipped and sprained my ankle this afternoon. I landed from my fall the wrong way because I was trying to protect my baby who is sitting in my baby bjorn carrier. And now I can only walk with turtle pace, and my ankle hurts, it is a bit swollen too. ARRGH!

Al Jazeera 101 East: A Legacy of A Dictator

Hosted by news anchor Teymoor Nabili, "Al Jazeera 101 East: A Legacy of A Dictator" was indeed a thought provoking episode.

It started with a brief flashback of what Suharto had done to Indonesia (and its people) since 1965 and was followed by conversations among Mugiyanto, Wimar Witoelar and Emil Salim.

Wimar, as always, spoke from his heart while Emil was all over the place, unable to defend his points clearly. Mugiyanto was very consistent as well in his views.

You can watch the episode using the following links:

Inspired - Around the World as a Family

Traveling around the world need not be limited to adults. Children, even the very young ones, don't need to be excluded from the experience.

These families are our inspiration! They share one thing in common: they are families of world travelers

  • The Fleming Family: They quit their day job and took the whole family for around the world trip for one year. They homeschool their children on the road
  • The Hacking Family: Around the world with their sailboat Ocelot over these past few years with their teenage son and daughter. They homeschool their children on water

Traveling with Toddler

Many people considered that our last one-month trip to Mexico and Cuba has been a hard-core one. Meaning that people think that it is such an impossible journey, that many people would think many many times before actually committing into it. But I suppose traveling is so much our passion that we're willing to take risks and plan such trip. If money is not an issue, we'd like to travel all over the world!

Travel Planning

Indi and I shared one common thing: We love to travel, to see and experience the world (*if money is not an issue). And with travel, we also share one common trait: we plan for it in detail.

Why do we plan? Easy answer: because that's our style. Some people likes to travel unplanned, arriving at the airport not knowing where to stay or where to go. But not us.

A more difficult answer would be: Because we want to minimize uncertainties and maximise our enjoyment. As much as possible we do not want to be bothered too much with logistical issue. Moreover, we lug our toddlers along with us, hence the need for proper planning. Here, we'd like to share with you our style of travel planning.

We did this for most of our trips, particularly the ones outside South-East Asia.
