Today we provide an internet connection for kids to work with their homework. At Jurasik, besides learning about teamwork, we also provide any help with the homework. Of course we teach the basic of knowledge and they do the rest.
This kiddo got lots of plastic balls to filled up her crib yesterday. She is enjoying this brand new toy. Usually she doesn't like to be put in her crib but this time she's really having fun :D
Raining season is finally came. After two days cloudy and raining, we got quite hot day today. Well...just enjoy the day... :)
Hope you all not get bored by this picture since I post a lot about this project. Still amazed that I finally able to finish it :)
I'm taking pictures whenever possible. Just like this picture taken this morning when I spent my day in a symposium about critical care. It kinda hard to take pictures daily. So when it possible I tried to take a lot of pictures just in case I don't have a chance to go out or do something interesting.
Few days ago I published a tutorial how to make cheap vacuum-sealer bag from grid seal bag on snapguide. This is my fifth tutorial published there. This inspiration came up when my sister and I packed rendang that will be delivered to our customer. Thanks to years of medical school :) But I still need to figure out how long this vacuum bag will last.
It's been a long time since I step in this place again. This is one of the hallways at the clinic for outpatient in RSCM. Now the hallway looked a lot nicer than years ago.
Since I'm learning how to cook 7 years ago, I always look for easy but delicious recipe. Although lately I also learn how to cook more complicated food. Still the easy things help the most. One of the simplest things is making this salad that contain of carrot and daikon.
I keep my recipe in application called Bento. It's a database application and can be used for all kind of database. This application can be connected between my phone, laptop and iPad. I just need to sync it. To bad this application discontinued from the market. I love to check out which recipe hasn't been tried before or has no pictures. From 173 recipes, I still hasn't try about 48 recipes.
Inspired by Sandra Juto on her blog, I'm starting to make my own granny square afghan project. Actually I start it around November 2013 but since I'm helping my sister to take care her daughter, Amira, I just couldn't find the time to continue it. On the 21st day of my 365 of 204 projects, I decided to make it as another project for 2014. Hopefully it will finish before this year turn into 2015 :)
After Amira turn 4 months, she starts using a baby sitter and I have more spare time to work on this project. Around mid July, I was able to finish 400 circles that will be joined into granny square afghan. I finally able to finish this project yesterday, just before the date turns into November 5th.
So here are my Granny Square Afghan Project. I'm using cotton yarn with 3 mm crochet hook. Combination of 11 colour for the circle and 1 colour to join all of them. Each square has a different colour combination. Weigh 1.35 kg and 145 cm x 135 cm in size, this afghan contain 400 granny squares.
Sandra Juto sell her blanket for €599 while mine is not for sale at the moment :)
Spend all day weaving and trimming the tail from granny squares. By 11.30 P.M., I finish my Granny Squares Afghan Project. I'm so happy <3<3<3
I wasn't able to finish my project by the end of the month and quite busy Saturday and Sunday. But today all the squares have been connected into a blanket and I finally able to finish up the edge too.
We are celebrating Amira's first birthday with family. We are having lunch at Riung Tenda and then had a birthday cake.
Spend all day at technical meeting. I love how this place provide us a glass and a jar of water instead of plastic bottled water.
Today I'm visiting a yarn store at Tebet. I always love to come to this store. So many yarn and I would like to buy them all :) I'm adding 8 new colour for my tumbler/bottle holder collection. I also found cotton yarn #10 for my barbie collection with reasonable price.
Jl. Tebet Barat Dalam no 87. Jakarta Selatan DKI Jakarta 12810.
I'm still working with my Granny Square Afghan project. Hope it will finish by the end of this month. I still have two more rows to work on and then final touch for the edge.
Today I work on two more tumbler holder, red and tuscan red. I also start cataloging the crafts. Now I'm working on purple small size tumbler holder.
This baby hit the road again after sometimes :) We went to see Jakarta Marathon and had breakfast at Bangi Kopitiam at Jalan Sabang and then back home. It was so hot that my water getting hot and I dehydrated badly. I feel like to leave the bike somewhere and go home by taxi. But in the end, I made it home. Two kilometre from home we run out of water. After drinking plenty of water my brain start to functioning again :D
So many people complaining about trash that produce during Pesta Rakyat on Monday. Hey you... your trash/waste is your own responsibility. How you manage your trash not only by throwing it into the trash bin but also how you manage the waste/trash that you produce. Avoid using single use plastic packaging, Styrofoam, or paper box. Bring your own reusable plastic container/tumbler/water bottle/spoon-fork-knife whenever possible. Ask the barista to use a glass or mug when you drink in a coffee shop or use your own tumbler to take away drink.
All my tumbler holder were sold out. So I start to make some new one to sell. I need to finished it before Wednesday. Work...work...and more work...
