I always describe myself as an autumn girl. Because I was born in November and I adore the pretty colors of trees in autumn, I like how we dress up, it is fluffy and not bulky like in the winter, I like its wetness because it rains a lot and the color of the autumn sun. I celebrated my 30th birthday a couple of weeks ago and I really had a blast. I love my new age, I love how it sounds and I am thankful that I am still alive in my 30th year of existence in this world. My heart is filled with joy and overloaded with love from my new family.
In the weekend we invited some of closest friends and my husband cooked his signature spicy tuna pie and chicken pie. I made some pecel (Indonesian vegetable salad with tasty peanut sauce) and tumpeng. My best friend D cooked yellow rice for us, then I cooked tempe dishes, tofu, Indonesian chicken dish…a lot of food and condiments . There was laughter, love, and warmth in our apartment…balloons, buntings, (hand-made) presents and ice creams. I love them to bits. Thank you dear Lord Almighty for giving me this wonderful life. I cannot describe my gratitude in words.
