A Celebration of Togetherness

Seperti yang sudah pernah kuceritakan, setelah menikah, aku tinggal bersama suamiku tercinta di Tangerang, lebih dari 600 kilometer dari tempat tinggal Mama dan keluarganya di Sleman. Sebelum kembali bekerja, aku menghabiskan masa liburan bersama keluargaku di Sleman.

As I told you before, after get married, I move to Tangerang to live with my beloved hubby. About 400 miles away from my family’s home in Sleman. Before going back to work, I want to have a vacation at my home in Sleman.

Welcome to My World!

Di rumah Oma, ada kebiasaan makan bersama. Mulai dari sarapan pagi, makan siang, hingga makan malam. Dan aku sempat mengabadikan salah satu momen makan bersama kami.

At Oma’s, there’s a habit of dining together. Either breakfast, lunch, also dinner time. And I’m lucky to have a chance documenting one of those dining moments.

3. Tambahkan daun pepaya, garam, lada putih bubuk dan gula pasir. Aduk rata.
