100 Days of Happiness – Day 89

This morning was a little tricky as Samudra woke up crying and didn’t really seem to want to settle down, but we had a birthday party to go to so I thought once he saw some other babies maybe that would make him calmer. We caught a taxi in the gorgeous morning sunshine to the […] Read more »

100 Days of Happiness – Day 88

Every year I have looked forward to attending Inacraft, and every year something has happened and I have missed out on attending, so this year I was determined to make it there for opening day, mid week, to avoid the crowds.  Of course I never quite made it to that either, and instead found my […] Read more »

100 Days of Happiness – Day 87

Once again I find myself writing with a backlog of days as I have been kept away from my computer by having fun so I am having trouble remembering what I actually did today but I definately remember what happened in the evening and it was pretty A.M.A.Z.I.N.G. It’s funny how the world works and […] Read more »

100 Days of Happiness – Day 86

Putra left super early to go filming again today so I played with Samudra until his nanny arrived and then got myself ready to battle the day!  I had a sudden craving for the french bread sticks and cheese from Hero Supermarket that Treen got me addicted to many years ago and I haven’t had […] Read more »

100 Days of Happiness – Day 85

Bless. Samudra was awake from 3.00am this morning screaming crying and seemed to be distraught about something but I couldn’t work out what, so I held him in my arms, trying not to fall asleep, while he slept for a couple of minutes, woke and cried, slept again, etc and the cycle continued until the […] Read more »

100 Days of Happiness – Day 84

Another early morning and another beautiful walk in the sunshine with my beautiful boy.  It was fairly quiet on the path I chose to take today, but we saw lots of chickens walking along the roads, cats and also some squirrels in a cage which made Samudra jump up and down in excitement. There was […] Read more »

100 Days of Happiness – Day 83

As soon as I woke this morning I decided it would be fun to take Samudra to visit the baby elephants at Ragunan Zoo to start our day. I googled opening times and it said 7.00am-5.00pm so I played with Samudra first and went to leave the house at 6.30am, planning to catch a taxi […] Read more »

100 Days of Happiness – Day 82

I had been planning to get up early today to visit Taman Suropati as it has been on my ‘to do’ list since having Samudra, and it’s been way too long since we were last there to watch Ages Biola and his students practising violin in the park. Remembering today was Easter Sunday I had […] Read more »

100 Days of Happiness – Day 81

Happy Easter Weekend to everyone! Tomorrow is Easter Sunday and still I haven’t seen a single chocolate egg for sale in Jakarta.. looks like the Easter Bunny will be missing our house, not that it matters as I have a chocolate fix everyday anyway. Today started with a lazy morning playing at home with Samudra, […] Read more »

100 Days of Happiness – Day 80

I planned to have a quick walk up the street this morning to go in search of bread as I woke up absolutely famished! As usual I left the house with Samudra on my hip and the camera slung over my shoulder, and we headed straight for the main road as I had no idea […] Read more »
