Birthday Galore at the Frakarsas Family

Birthday galore at the Frakarsas

Happy happy birthday!

December is a triple special for me and my family. It’s all about birthdays, birthdays, and birthdays! Plus vacation LOL.

I believe I have been telling my dearest blog readers that I am surrounded by 3 Sagitarians. My hubby, my son and my daughter. Good thing I am a Leo ♌️ so I can handle them (if you know what I mean  😉).

So this time, in this super special 2020 thanks to the pandemic, we actually managed to do things differently. We celebrated 2 birthdays in Bali (yaaaaay) and 1 in Jakarta with the my big families.

We started the birthday galore with Obi, my daughter. Although I was in the middle of preparation for meetings, we still get a chance to celebrate it in our hotel bedroom in Nusa Dua, Bali. We even had the mini birthday cake with cherries and chocolate on top 🍒.

So Happiest birthday to my baby bunny, ma mija, the brightest girl in the house (after mama hahahahaha) 🥰♥️🥰. No .. I was kidding. I bet you will be even brighter, smarter, more fun and more soleha ya love. I can’t tell you enough how proud I am to see you grow this gracefully all these years. Have blessed days head, gorgeous! May Allah SWT bless us all. Always!

Then the second birthday is super duper special as we celebrate my hubby’s born day and our anniversary as well. 16 years and still so much in love, complete with everything in between! We were in Ubud, staying in one of our favorite private villas there, and had a blast!

When people ask me how I - or perhaps ‘we’ can survive our relationship this long (9 years dating & 16 years of marriage and counting 🥰.), I might say I don’t now. I just enjoy the journey, - no matter how absurd and horrible it may be 😬🤭 , complete with its ups and downs;  be true to myself and try to ensure respect is on our day-to-day menu. Obviously, it’s not always a rose-colored glasses world we have, but it sure is colorful enough to make you realize how blessed and lucky you are to have each other. You don’t always have the privilege to spend your life with someone that makes you feel super comfortable being yourself. With Udi, I have been through hell and heaven and he still stands by me until this very moment. I sincerely hope I can do the same! Here’s to 16 (or 25 from the scratch 😙🥰) years and counting ya love 🌺♥️. 

Finally, the finale for this year’s birthday galore in the Frakarsas family is abang Bo’s. My first born son.

I still remember vividly when I came to Monash medical Center in Melbourne twice before I delivered my first born. It was quite an experience and an adventure for me and my hubby @frakarsa because it was only the two of us at the time and we were far away from home. Alhamdulillaaaah all was well and we celebrated the joy of being new parents merrily. But Bo has been a lovely and understanding kid since the very beginning as I have no trouble at all in raising him until now when puberty hits LOL. And he’s been traveling around since a tender age of 7 days, accompanying me to the boxing day sale then flew back home to Jakarta when he was only 39 days old!  

Now, he is still a soft-hearted and loving boy who is not afraid to show his love to mama, yours truly, Bapak et Obi. He hugs me before going to bed and says I love you to us. He helps with household chores and cooks well! And he’s our cats’ favorite!

Thanks for being a unique and helpful you, Bang.. here’s to being 14 and more brilliant years to come 🎉♥️! Bismillahirrahmanirrahiiim ♥️♥️♥️

Before his birthday, we had photo session taken during our last visit to Bali and during our stay in Conrad Hotel, Bali. I love all the result and really thank Conrad for these wonderful shots and beautiful memories we share in there ♥️💜♥️.

So that’s our birthday galore this year. We are so grateful for all the beautiful things Allah SWT has bestowed us. May we all be blessed. Always.



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


I hope everyone is safe, happy, and healthy wherever one is!

I have been following the news and see the continued spiking numbers of COVID-19 cases in so many countries, including Indonesia. It's sad to hear the news and some happened to somebody we know. 

As I have shared before, I have been traveling for work and this week, my family and I explored Bali. It's good to be back on the road as we all love traveling. But at them same time, we cannot deny that we get anxious whenever we meet big group of people or traveling to a place packed with visitors. Of course we are trying our best to seriously implement new normal norms and health protocol. It becomes the new SOP and standard whenever we have to make contact with others or travel for work. Hopefully that will help us prevent the spread of the virus.

Happy happy birthday, mija

Amidst the pandemic, we are blessed to spend my daughter's 10th birthday in Bali. I had a meeting and my kids had their final exam but before we started anything, we managed to have a little celebration. Just the 4 of us, in our hotel room. Nothing fancy, but we have a little birthday cake and candle blowing session. Alhamdulillah Obi, or Nadine, has healthily grown. Tons of love, mija, and may Allah SWT bestow you with abundant blessings. Always.


Here comes the kisses LOL.. look at her face!

While in Bali, we decided to pay a visit to Nusa Penida Island. It's simply AMAZING!

Kelingking beach, Broken Beach, Angel's Billabong and Chrystal Bay are on our itinerary and through a private tour for a safe and healthy trip, we finally enjoyed this breathtaking beauty. Check out some photos at WW: The Amazing Kelingking Beach, Nusa Penida, Bali. More photos and stories are certainly coming!

Now, let's enjoy Wonderful Wednesday with My Purple World, Oh My Heartsie Girls and Friends.

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

 Hi, everyone!

How's you September?

We started the month by celebrating my Mom's birthday! 


Happy birthday nenek Lilis

Happy to see her safe, happy ad healthy. She is now in Jakarta, staying with me for a while. We love to have here around and the house is always merry, especially the kitchen LOL. But again, we always love to have her around and although we mostly stayed at home during this pandemic, we usually went out briefly to get some supplies and food.


I still have tons of works in the pipeline and meetings come continuously. Sometimes, we stayed int he hotel to ensure that we had no unnecessary distraction at the office. We went to Pullman Villa Ciawi Vimala Hill last week and it was lovely indeed. I guess we all miss the staycation we used to do before the pandemic.
