Is Chivalry Dead?

"Whatever happened to chivalry? Does it only exist in 80s movies? I want John Cusack holding a boombox outside my window. I wanna ride off on a lawnmower with Patrick Dempsey. I want Jake from Sixteen Candles waiting outside the church for me. I want Judd Nelson thrusting his fist into the air because he knows he got me. Just once I want my life to be like an 80s movie, preferably one with a really awesome musical number for no apparent reason. But no, no, John Hughes did not direct my life."
-Olive Penderghast, Easy A

That little monologue right there? Yeah. That pretty much sums it up.

Food Galore: Housewife Mode

As you probably know, I love food. I enjoy good food. I especially love cooking good food. All throughout last week, I've been cooking home-cooked meal like a storm.

Starting with Japanese fiesta (Beef Katsu Curry Rice)

Then on to Mexican Night (Fish Tacos complete with homemade guacamole and salsa)

Followed with the husband's Mickey Mouse shaped Pancake this morning

Oh yeah, Japanese Fiesta went on for two days straight! The second one I made Chicken Yakitori and Agedashi Tofu (no picture available because I haven't uploaded it). As you can see I really do enjoy cooking. It's therapeutic to me. Tonight I'll be cooking Beef Tacos. Yep, I guess Mexican Night shall continue..

Happiness are:

Seeing the baby boy happy with his (many) car collections.

And having a new headboard all set up! No more banging heads straight onto the wall, right baby A?

hello, surprise!

I finally got my hand on this baby! All I can say is alhamdulillah, praise the lord hallelujah, hip hip hurrah! Can you guess which one I got? Well, you'll just have to wait and see for the big reveal!

Lunch Date: Din Tai Fung

Yesterday I went on a lunch date with my friend, Ayu, who's 34 weeks pregnant. Its fun that more and more of my friends are starting to have kids of their own, meaning I can actually have a "mommy" friends get-togethers more often than not. A few of my very best friends are still living the single life, though sometimes I envy their freedom once in a while, I wouldn't change motherhood for anything.

Anyway. We had lunch at this delicious Chinese restaurant, Din Tai Fung. We had the chicken xiao long bao, fried chicken with chili, sauteed stringbeans with beef, and shared a plate of Shanghai Ice whatever it is, over a good mommy-talk and some juicy stories (aka The Gossip).

quotes of the day


Disney On Ice

Went to see Disney On Ice last Sunday with the husband, baby A and my parents. Baby A has been nagging (sort of) to see the show every time he saw the ads on TV.. so we made the time to go see the show. It was a lot of fun as I'm a Disney fanatic myself. So seeing all the Disney characters skating around dancing and singing brings back so many childhood memories.

ps: There might be another Disney visit for me in the near future. I'm really really crossing my fingers. Wish me luck!

Happy Easter Day

Went to celebrate Easter Day at my grandmother's house. We had lunch and play Easter Egg hunt! It was a fun day! Photos coming soon!

Afterwards, went to Brawijaya Women and Children Hospital to visit my best friend Mira, as she just gave birth (via c-sect) to a very handsome baby boy named Kenzo.
