WW: Eid Al-Fitr Family Photos

Cheers from the Frakarsas and our big family!

One of the traditions during Eid Al-Fitr celebration is the family portraits. Well, under ideal and normal circumstances most of us will us this auspicious occasion to gather with the complete big family. That is why the family portrait is pack and parcel with this happy day. It wasn't really a fancy session as we only use our phones to take these pictures. These days we all want to be practical, right!
the feast!

So we took our phones and set it on the tripod. connecting the clicker, we have series of photos taken in seconds. 

We're missing Mrs. C and Kiki hereeee

As you can see, family pictures is fun! Here are some more photos we took during the victorious day, including our feline friends.

Hope you all have great, safe, and happy days ahead!

Join us on (almost) Wordless Wednesday and have fun with the link party.

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

Eid Mubarak, dear friends!

Eid Mubarak, dear friends!

The victorious day is here and my family and I were so blessed to be given the chance to celebrate it together in Jakarta. First time ever we have a complete formation of me and my family, my mom, my brothers' family (minus the youngest niece staying in Lampung) celebrating Eid al - Fitr in Jakarta. Usually we go back home to Lampung but this year we are not allowed to do so to curb the spread of the virus.

And at the same day, Wednesday, May 13th, 2021,  Ascension Day was celebrated, so happy Ascension Day to those celebrating it.

It has been an auspicious day filled with faith, love and joy for sure. May God bless us all! We all need all the peace, love and harmony among us all in this trying times. I am happy to see that in our daily life. Hopefully it will stay for as long as it is needed.

This year's lebaran day is still the same. We were not heading back to Lampung for mudik, as it is still forbidden. But my mom has been living with me in Jakarta since August last year and my brothers are in Jakarta as well. We didn't meet my husband's family because all of the are in Lampung but thanks to technology, video call is the new silahturahmi.

Well, I sincerely hope everyone gets the chance to celebrate Lebaran Day or Eid Al Fitr with their loved ones solemnly, peacefully and safely as well. Eid Mubarak!

Now, it's time for Wonderful Wednesday with My Purple World, Oh My Heartsie Girls and Friends!

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!

Mentai sushi and dimsum from friend..

pineapples... for our favorite Nastar cookies

the market was packed!

buying food for Ifthar...all ready-to-eat munchies

Salted fish in various form... sooo tempting

Virtual Eid Mubarak and Halal Bihalal

getting ready for virtual meet - up 
Thanks to coronavirus, we are now “forced“ to embrace the ‘new normal’.
This year‘s Eid is one of the examples.

Google Meet with my Google Local Guide Community

We are strongly urged not to go back home or do ‘mudik’ in order to curb the spread of the virus. Many of us stay at home, separated from the big family or their loved ones, and experience the first and special Eid Al-Fitr in the middle of the pandemic. And that includes us, the Frakarsas.

The link below is the video of our Eid Celebration last year.
You see.. we did it in traditional fashion. We had big gatherings, family and friends, lots of food, tons of fun! Making me missing everyone! As Lebaran day is happening only once a year and celebrated after a month-long fasting month, no wonder we won't nothing but the best during this victorious day. 

Yet, again, 2020 is super special.
There we are.. making so many adjustments in life, work and the way we conduct our activities. We are taking our Eid celebration to a new level and a new platform.

Virtual celebration.

I have several Eid celebration and ‘gathering’ going on this year. First with my mom and my brothers and our families through whatsapp group video call. Then with my aunties and big families, followed by Office colleagues, my childhood friends and families as well as my communities. Quite a busy and packed schedules that carries on till the end of the week after Eid Al-Fitr. Even on the third day (which used to be part of Eid long holidays before COVID-19), we already have meetings and webinars through zoom application as well.

our first meeting right after the Eid
 I even have back to back ‘halal bihalal’ virtual meetup with my junior high school friends and continued with my Jakarta Google Local Guides and then Women Local Guides. I ended up finish everything at 1 AM. Straight from 4 PM in the afternoon! It was crazily long but I really enjoyed it. I will share more detailed stories in another post. As you can see, we have no better option but enjoying it.

This halal bihalal continued until 11 PM 
This year, we are doing it differently as we stayed at home and did everything from home during Lebaran day. But of course, it does not mean it's not fun! You can see our lebaran celebration this year in my YouTube video as well.

So, many of us are familiar with teleconference applications such as Google Meet, Webex, Skype, Polycon, and Zoom application and therefore we use them a lot. It was fun to chat, laugh, share photos and slides with the others. Even some technical glitches can be funny during the meeting. Perhaps this is the new normal that we all have to get used to. I do have problems with the connection sometimes and from bad backache after long, straight time sitting in front of the computer. And I guess I have to check my sight again as the hours being spent in front of the computers have significantly multiplied. But out of these issues, I can say I enjoy my virtual Eid Mubarak and Halal Bihalal.

How about your Lebaran day? 
So do you have your virtual meetings with your loved one as well?
How do you like it?

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!
