"kebun" gathering 2009

Filed Under (), () by AstRid YuLisa^anGie^ on Monday, September 28, 2009

So this is another gathering of my big family. Actually, it has not been a plan at all. But, since my parents rarely go home *bogor*, then they decided to have family gathering at last saturday in my place. My father invited all his siblings. The place is not in our home, it's another place..we used to call it "kebun". My parents owned the place, a yard with house, ponds and plants *vegetables* surrounded. Nice place to run from the city's life. So many activities happened there, some were fishing, and other were cooking while the others ,playing card..hehehe, me? I just part of cheers team and baby sitter for my lil' nieces.

One of them is interested. Her name is Tias, but as you can see in the picture, she looks like a boy with that short hair. More over if she dress like a boy..you will notice her as a boy, believe me. She's so attractive, cant make her quite, she did this, did that..ran here, ran there..an make noises..huff..kiddo..but in the end, she was quite fun for me, coz she was different to another, the unique one... :)

Good moment of this gathering was when we ate together. Even we just ate an ordinary food but the food feels so delicious, I guess it's bout the togetherness of this family. Well even there were not all the member of this big family could attend this gathering, I still can feel it. I'm proud for being part of this family :)

Happy Lebaran 2009 !

For this year, it took the oldest sister places, and I called her Bou *it's a bataknish nickname*. Unfortunately, my parent had to missed this event, coz their job. So, Me and my bro were presenting in the name of our family. A lot food is always be my attention *besides those each family it self*..hehehe, this time we have nice salad and meat ball, yummy-yummy...hehehe. Of course, I was playing and hang out with cousins, aunts, and uncles too, I wont miss that moment anyway. Can't wait to have this event again, and next time, I hope my parents can join us. :)

Visit and Graveyards day!

Filed Under (), () by AstRid YuLisa^anGie^

I had a long journey today, with some check point spot...hehehe... Well check it out..

1st check point : the oldest sister of my
Pap family' house.

We went there..chit-chat, playing with my niece and nephew, and prayed together . You can see me and my niece on the picture. She is very cute right? her name is Cilla, taken from "Pricilla". She likes to write a story and of course playing somethin' pretty. Pink stuff is everywhere. We were writing together in her diary and she show me all her toys and her strawberry shortcake's dvd collection. Once, she and her brother asked me to join her game, which is I did not get it. It's like hmm... spy and shock..I guess...we spy someone and then shocks that person. I dont know..hehehe..but it seems so fun for them. :) Actually I want to have a picture with her brother, Nanda. But he's so shy, and it made me so difficult to have a picture with him. He's cute too, I can imagine how handsome he would be when he grow up. After that short time baby sitting..hehehe, my family is leaving to the next destination. From this visiting, my Mom got two plant *quite heavy* from my aunty *my mom likes gardening, read "Jemani"*, she's very glad about it.

2nd Check Point : "Kalibata", Jakarta , My " opa" graveyard

it's been a years I didnt come to this place. Two or three years ago..maybe, well it’s Indonesian hero’s grave, the biggest hero’s grave in Indonesia. My “opa” is one of them. Proud of him :) this place is very nice place for a graveyard..it has a stone that has all the name of those heros that buried in there. Try to find my opa's name on it..he died in 1972, his name is E. Sutomo, by the way, the atmosphere is so peacefull, I think those hero’s feels great about it too.

3rd Check point : Cipaku, Bogor, My “oma” graveyard

Well..it’s in bogor. So we came in and out for a toll road to get here. Thanks fully, we did stop for having late lunch *coz it’s afternoon already*. We choosed Rollies in Cibubur, and then gone rightaway to Cipaku, after it. You can see it, this graveyard is very different to Kalibata. Of course, it’s just a common graveyard for civilian. But It’s quite peace too.

4th Check point : Bogor, My “ompungs and uncle” graveyard

I’m a bataknish *although I can’t speak the language,hehehe”, so I called my grants with ompung. Both of them are buried in here. My uncle too, he is the the second siblings of my father family. They buried him in the same field. This graveyard is for civilian too, big one and it’s quite spooky, with those big banyan trees.

5th Check point : Home

Huff..we got stuck on the way we go home. Traffic Jam! Huuf….so long and tiring..but I try to enjoy it since I’m with my family, complete version : Mom, Pap , Bro and me. Oya, my talkative aunty for the extension..hehehe..So excited! well I almost a month in bogor, but I just *finally*meet my parent bout two days ago. Missed them so much…and it makes traffic jam nothing for me and us. We got home without knowing how much time we spent for it. That’s just because the jokes and the laughs. :)

It’s tiring but it’s very nice trip that rarely happened to me *coz we’re all busy person*. Hope it may happened again with another destination :)
