our new addiction

Last week we went to Bandung and my mom took us to this noodle place in front of the Rainbow Outlet at Jl. Sukajadi No. 168-170. The noodle wasn't the best but their strawberry juice was sooooo yummy! So, mom's cousin who lives in Bandung told us that the recipe is very simple, strawberries, condensed milk and water. I've tried that recipe and tastes delicious...Em loves it :) so does Francis...here's what I use:

8-10 frozen strawberries (keep those fresh berries in freezer)

3-5 tbsp condensed milk (according to taste)

1 glass of cold water

blend everything together and it should make 2 glasses + 1 small glass for Emma :)

From there, we then go to Rumah Mode at Jl. Setiabudi No. 41F and I found some great maternity clothings and they have my size too! (I could not fit into Indonesian maternity clothing...even when I'm not pregnant! so go figure! hehehe)...tried finding some oilily brand, but I guess I wasn't as lucky as babyape :) Francis found some great A&F, Burberry and CK polo shirts and he kept asking me if the price is correctly labeled hahahaha. Found some skirts for Emma too :) so, overall very happy.

From there, I took home some Mie Rica (simply LOVE this noodle!!! they'll give you the oil and raw noodle so it will stay fresh), it's at:

Jl. Kejaksaan no. 7, they also have an outlet at:

Komp. Taman Kopo Indah III ruko F2 as well as another outlet at: Hyper Square Pasir Kaliki B-70

After that...we had dinner at Dunia Baru at Jl. Gardujati No. 39 and we ate this crab-like soup with noodle on the inside...simply beautiful :) but you have to eat it there, else it won't taste so good :)

After all that...am quite hungry now...

Nowadays, since I have so much materials I purchased from my father's friend (he owns a fabric factory), instead of using wrapping paper, I just sew these little bags (like what I did to Em's goodie bag).

goodie bags

The goodie bags were nightmares.  I asked for a specific design of Barney on it, but the store decided they knew better and added theseextra wordings! thus making the whole mug looked too crowded! so annoying! I didn't even ask them to do anything to the mug! I was too lazy to argue, though, so I just let it be.  And currently I am into making those little lunch box bags...they're so fun to make...I must say though, I did horribly at my sewing and I know people will notice...the heck...it was my first time and I managed to make these little bags...26 of them! then I put a thick yellow drawstring to finish them off...somehow I didn't take picture of the finished product...

a party for our little princess

I must say...I'm not a big fan of organizing any sorts of parties, though I like hosting small parties with close friends, I hate planning and organizing.  Nevertheless, I thought Emma should at least have a first birthday party.  I must say, though....parties nowadays are SO EXPENSIVE!!!  The clown...the game...the cake...the balloons!!I've kept everything to a minimum and hosted the party at the function hall of our apartment, not bad, actually.  Since the apartment has this new trampoline installment, I only added the fishing game for the little kids to enjoy.  In the end, thanks to my parents, aunties, and relatives, the party turned out ok :) though I must say I'm quite disappointed with the ugly barney clown and the scarry "godzilla" like mini barney cupcakes, in the end I just see past that and the kids were having so much fun and most importantly, Em was having thetime of her life...she was SO EXCITED and only get exhausted after it all ended and fell asleep when taken upstairs.  Thanks to our friends who came and celebrated it with us :)
