Alhamdulillah wasyukurillah, I & A now have a home (and of course a mortgage LOL) near my parents’ home in Bekasi. Although Bekasi has been quite popular in social media recently for being alienated by distance and traffic jam (from Jakarta, which parts actually just alienate each other), we decided to get a house there because 1) To be close to my parents, 2) To be pretty close to A’s mom & house in Bandung. We consider some scenarios such as having baby and me not giving up my 9-5 job. You know, things like that.
Since A is still in UK and me in Balikpapan, I got really busy during moving in. The house itself was pre-loved but fortunately the what was left was more than just okay and it feels spacious. It’s got a little garden and even a patio on the balcony. Lucky us! :D Decorating house has always been my dream, especially since Diana Rikasari hit it with her #BidiBidiBongBong home (a trivia: we’re in the same housing complex ;)). I guess it comes from my Mom which is crazy about ‘home & living’ stuff although we have quite different taste. I couldn’t keep my excitement so I uploaded several photos in my Instagram accounts: @putyp & @byputy. I decided to call it “Usagi Casa”, which is combination of Japanese & Spanish word meaning ‘rabbit home’ :3 (hashtag: #usagicasa)
Last Sunday we just had a house warming party part 1 (with family, relatives & neighbors, without A) and today I & Bunda just finished cleaning up the whole mess. So here are some photos of the house and we surely can’t wait to have another house warming parties for besties & friends :D
