#ModyarHood: Nge-Date Setelah Punya Anak

Hola! Kembali lagi berjumpa dengan saya di sesi #Modyarhood. Copy paste lagi yaaa kali-kali ada yang belum ngeh, #ModyarHood adalah program kecil-kecilan saya bersama Mamamolilo (a.k.a Okke Sepatumerah sebelum jadi ibu hahaha) dengan semangat ‘Walau kadang bikin mau modyar tapi tetap yahud’. Jadi #ModyarHood ini menginisiasi sebuah topik setiap bulannya (Insyaallah, doain. #terDilan) seputar motherhood yang kemudian akan dijadikan blogpost oleh kami berdua. Diharapkan para buibuk lainnya bisa ikutan menulis blogpost dengan topik tersebut. Tujuannya untuk menampilkan lebih banyak sudut pandang tentang motherhood itu sendiri sehingga kita bisa lebih arif dalam menyikapi perbedaan. Dua topik pertama kami adalah seputar buku parenting, dan GTM alias Gerakan Tutup Mulut. Nah, kali ini ceritanya mau menyesuaikan tema di bulan Februari yang identik dengan hari kasih sayang. Walaupun saya termasuk orang yang percaya bahwa Valentine’s Day adalah hari gimmick perusahaan cokelat sedunia, namun menarik juga kayanya untuk membahas soal waktu berduaan bersama pasangan. Ejie jieee :p Untuk topik kali ini kami sudah menyiapkan hadiah kheseus untuk buibu yang mau ikutan berpartisipasi! Caranya nanti baca di akhir postingan yaaa :3

It’s been a while…

Lately (or I should say, since mid 2013 when we started planning the wedding) I’ve been so busy with marriage and wedding related discussion. Some good and best friends got (or are getting) married this year and I’ve been talking a lot about wedding and marriage life. Without really realizing it, I’ve been giving advice to friends (especially those who’ve been in particular relationship for what I assume as enough duration to know each other) to start thinking about marriage. Last week I got a chance to hang out with a French trainee. He’s a non-pro-marriage, fear-of-commitment typical guy. It wasn’t my judgement; it was his statement. Although I’m a conventional type (stay-virgin-until-what-I-believe-would-be-my-everlasting-monogamous-marriage kind of girl), I’m open minded enough not to mind people’s choice or being nosy about it. So I kinda enjoyed when we (plus my unmarried besties) discussed about it. I’ve been always interested about what modern guys think about marriage and how they deal with their spouses and society. Chick lits aren’t enough because they are mostly written by female writers (whose blood …

Got Married!

Here we’ve come at the end of another June. June has always been important for me. It was the time to say goodbye to a phase while clumsily trying hard to greet a new one. From a year to another, back in high school; graduating from university and got a job; move from the rig to the office, and this year: from being single to married :) Alhamdulillah, finally me & Bang Anggun got married on June 15, 2014. We did it both religiously and officially on a Sunday morning, witnessed by family and friends. I couldn’t help my tears when I read my speech, asking for my father’s permission and blessing. After the speech, Ayah and Bang Anggun read the Ijab & Qabul without hesitation and there, we were married. It was one of the most amazing moments in my life and I believe every bride felt the same. It was the moment when you sit down beside the love of your life, in front of your father, surrounded by people you love very …
