Happy holiday, I say firsts for you all. Wish this long year end holiday will give you much chances to create story telling with your family or with ones you love. In Indonesia, this long year end holiday is along with mother's day, so I really get more impressions of it. My sweet girls all said I love You Mom, and even got their big hugs and kisses for night and day. They also give me gifts, that actually make me feel so deeply. How, they really love me.
"Mom, I can't give you nothing. Yet really I love you Mom." That's my daughter said.
It was different from my only one son, "I'd like to give you something you like, but I don't know. So what can I give you Mom?"
hahahahhh .... I just laugh in my heart. However I like all of their attention to me.
All of them would like to make me pleasant, and happy.
Actually, the presence of you all make me happy, and make my life lives lovely, colorful, and meaningful. All are miracle and amazing by your presence. How you all can present and fill my life.

It has been 16 years living together in the colorful marriage for me and my hubby, and this December 1st, 2012 is our 16th wedding anniversary. This happy day can be the sweet moment with our five kids and we have planned to spend our time together, because this moment comes in weekend. Therefore, it is so appropriate for my family to spend this weekend together in a lovely place. This can be the way to maintain healthy relationship for us. I just wish our marriage, family, and our kids always happy ever after, luck, and blessed by Allah Swt. For my hubby, thanks for being a part of my life, for all you do to make me smile, happy, and comfort in all moments. When we started the journey we were mere strangers but today we are the best friends who have shared many moments of life together.

Nana (5 years old) got assignment from her teacher to make a mosaic about the vehicle. And here are the mosaic car by Nana ....................and Mom :)
Hehehehhh.... Nana would like to color the car picture with rainbow color, red, yellow, and green. But she also would like to color the car with red and white, like the Indonesian Flag. So, the car window using red and white, like the flag. Besides, there also traffic light with three colors, red to stop, yellow to pay attention, and green to go ahead.
Yupps, this mosaic car assignment can be the tool for learning about color, car or vehicles (and its part, such as lamp, wheel, windows), and traffic light. Beside that, it also can be the tool for skill learning about how to cut and paste to appropriate to the picture, and of course she can learn the type of shapes, such as rectangle, circle, and triangle.
|The honey bee: original from Sumbawa|
Just few days ago I got a bottle of sweet honey bee from Sumbawa, Nusa Tenggara Barat. Someone brought it for me as a gift from his hometown. Not only that, he brought a brochure that explain about how to indicate the originality of the honey bee. So, my question about how to indicate the originality of honey bee can be answered now :). Here are the criteria of the original honey bee:
- Color: vary in color.
- Taste: sweet, rather sour or acid, sweet rather little bitter depend on nectars around the flowers that are smoked by bees.
- Aroma or flavor: specific flavor of honey.
- Ropiness or thickness: In the dry season, the honey bee will be thicker than rainy (yet, both are good).
Then how to know that the honey is original:
- The flavor is a pungent smell of honey.
- If it is mixed with yolk, and the yolk will be half-done, when we let it for about 2-3 minutes
- If we shake the bottle, then there will be bubble of honey foam.
- When we take in for about 5 spoon of honey in to a glass with water in it and the honey will not mix into the water in the glass.
Now, you can try it. But if you have a tips about how to know the originality of the honey bee, you can tell me :). By the way, for My friends, Samba aka Wawan, thanks a lot for the gift :). With this honey bee from Sumbawa, it will enourage my family to be naturally healthy with Indonesian Product. Proud of you, Indonesia.
|The Cave in the Village Corner: My five kids enjoys this original cave|
The village corner -- It is the photos of my kids when we were homecoming to my hometown in one small village in Lamongan, East Java, in Lebaran Day. Due to long time I did not go home to Lamongan, of course for this moment I would like to spend my times with my family there, and show more about what I know about my village. Therefore, instead of spending our time at my parent's home, relatives', and neighbors', I also asked my hubby to visit a place that I think it is still original, the cave in the village corner. The name of this cave is Gua Ngulaan, because it is located nearby the small hamlets, a part of my village that is named as Ngulaan. This cave is at Ngulaan Hill.
|In the Cave 'Lobby': Nana and my Hubby. Hehehe... as a Cave Man|
I thing this is still very original, because this cave haven't been managed well. In fact, this cave may be have a potential to be the tourism destination. In front of the Cave, there is a mosque, small fountain, bathing places, and typical tree, that is breadfruit trees (pohon Sukun).

|After Out from Maharani Cave|

A healthy relationship can be built to perpetuate marriage and build a happy family. Say something tenderly with love quotes is one of the way to preserve a healthy love relationship. So, what will you feel when your hubby said 'I can't live without my wife' for you and to others to show how importance of you for him. I think you will be so proud and get loving him more and more.
So, it is so easy to built a happy and healthy love relationship which will encourage your family in happiness forever. Just make a habit each other to express your love by sweet love quotes, and it will help you to grow and preserve your love and happy family. It also will help your kids to learn how to love and affection others, that in this life will be peaceful, pleasant, comfort, and joyful.
