Maaf lahir batin atas segala khilaf, alpa, dan kesalahan sepanjang tahun. Semoga Allah SWT menerima segala amal ibadah kita dan menjadi pribadi yang kembali pada fitrah-Nya.

WW: Eid AL-Fitr is Coming!

Eid AL-Fitr is Coming!
Eid AL-Fitr is Coming!

The end of Ramadhan is near and we are preparing for Eif Al-Fitr.

Just like last year, we are still observing Ramadhan and celebrating Eid AL-Fitr, the victory day, in COVID -19 environment. As many of us have been vaccinated and with strict health protocol being observed, this year we will be able to actually pray in the mosque with physical distancing and mask on.

This year, for the first time, insya Allah we will celebrate Eid Al-Fitr with my mom and my brothers in Jakarta. It was really a blessing as last year we celebrated it separately in Jakarta and Lampung, as we couldn't go home due to the extra restriction during the pandemic. This year is similar, but my brother manages to come to Jakarta and stays for a while.

Anyway, here's a little preparation we made before the Eid. We cleaned the house, rearranged things, cooked special food for Eid, and sent hampers to family and friends. It was always fun indeed!

Join us on (almost) Wordless Wednesday and have fun with the linky party!

Wonderful Wednesday with My Purple World, Oh My Heartsie Girls and Friends

Lebaran Day Eid Al FItr
Lebaran Day!

Lebaran Day is here!
How wonderful it is, and slightly somber for us since we are not going back home. We are happy that we have given the opportunity to forge ourselves into better beings during the holy month of Ramadhan and ended it up with Eid Al-Fitr. The festivities are in the air although we are mostly staying at home as Large Scale Social Restriction or PSBB is still in place. 

But as I wrote in Eid Mubarak, Eid Mubarak, we still enjoy Eid Al-Fitr. Even on the third day of Lebaran, which is usually still part of our annual leave, we are officially (and virtually) back to the office. Well, we are getting ready for the 'new normal.' Hope everything can be safely planned and done.

Meanwhile, our friends and families in the US is celebrating the Memorial Day. It's like the heroes' day in Indonesia, where we celebrated the lives and sacrifices our heroes, the fallen soldiers and others who have fought against the colonialization. May they all rest in peace.

And now, Wonderful Wednesday with My Purple World, Oh My Heartsie Girls and Friends is ready to welcome you all.

Memorial Day 2

I would like to take a moment to Thank and Remember all our fallen soldiers of Military, there have been countless lives lost in the pursuit of keeping America safe at home. God Rest their souls!

Eid Mubarak, Eid Mubarak


Wishing all my dearest family and friends a wonderful and joyful Eid Al-Fitr!
May Allah SWT continue bestowing us with endless blessings.
Aamiin Ya Rabbal Alamiiin

We all know, Ramadhan and Eid AL-Fitr this year is different due to Corona.
No congregation at the mosque, no buka bersama or having ifthar party, no open jamaah Eif Al-Fitr sholat (at least for many of us, since we saw many were still doing it :( ), no mudik or going back home, no salaman or hand-shaking asking for forgiveness.

Yet, we have new traditions as well.
Virtual tradition!
Virtual buka bersama or ifthar, virtual mudik, virtual family gathering, virtual saweran or giving bonus money to the kids due to their good behaviours during Ramadhan (to be followed by transfer LOL),  and many more. We shared and chatted through various platforms, - Whatsapp group, zoom, Google meet, name it! And again, as we learn to live side by side, make a peace with this new normal, we can actually enjoy it!

We still share the same joy and happiness although we are not together physically.
This is the new normal that we all have to learn and bear.
Walaupun kita tidak secara langsung berkumpul, tapi kita tetap bisa berbagi kebahagiaan dan kesenangan dengan keluarga tercinta.

Like it or not, we all have to restrain ourselves so that we can take care of our own safety as well as others. 
Ini bukan buat siapa - siapa, tapi buat kita dan orang - orang yang kita cintai. Kita tidak pernah tau bahwa di balik fisik kita yang sehat dan baik - baik saja ternyata kit bisa menjadi carrier yang mematikan untuk orang tua, anak, keluarga, teman, tetangga dan orang lain. Perang melawan virus yang kasat mata seperti ini memang membuat kita kerap menyepelekan kondisi dan situasi yang sesungguhnya. Semoga kita bisa tetap sadar dan disiplin melawan virus Corona ini.

We also prayed at home instead of going to mushola, mosque or other places of worships. 
We did it at home, just the 4 of us.
We really solemnly enjoyed all this process and thank God for the opportunity to actually celebrate Eid Al-Fitr in a different, yet beautiful way.

Getting ready to pray at home

cheers from duck-face Indah et Nadine :)

So again, allow me to say:


More stories, video and pictures will come from our celebration of Eid Al-Fitr this year. Meanwhile, wishing you all  happy, healthy and safe days ahead!

WW: Eid Al-Fitr Delicious Cuisines

Eid Al-Fitr will not be complete without its famous, extravaganza delish cuisines.
This year, since we do not mudik or go back to our hometown, many of us have to prepare the traditional Lebaran cuisine on their own. Well, we can obviously order it from many restaurants and food vendors that provide them, but for me, Eid Al - Fitr is so special I feel like I have to cook them myself!

The traditional menu on Lebaran day usually comprises of ketupat (rice cake wrapped in  specially-woven coconut leaves), rendang (the world wide famous spicy beef with coconut milk), opor ayam (chicken stew with coconut milk), sambal goreng ati (spicy potato and beef liver), semur daging (Indonesian sweet beef stew) and sayur ketupat (Indonesian spicy vegetable soup). Not to mention the cookies! My fave is always be the kaastengels or the cheese cookies and nastar, the one with pineapple jam. Well, even writing them down here is mouthwatering for me LOL. 

cookies, anyone? Kaastengel, nastar and putri salju or snow white

I have share a lot about Lebaran food, including some recipes. 
Check it out here:
This year, I was somehow too tired and lazy to cook for Lebaran Day at the end of Ramadhan. But I was so lucky as my little brother was cooking a lot and sent some food to my home, especially sayur godog for ketupat and sambal goreng ati. We bought ketupat from our neighbors so we only need the main courses.  Then on the second day of Eid Al Fitr, I decided to cook opor ayam and adding sambal goreng ati. Not too late as we are still celebrating the big day. Here's what I got.

Ketupat, everyone?
