How we finally got pregnant

We’ve been married for about 1 and a half year now, and I’m not gonna lie I wanted to have a baby right after we got married. Although I wasn’t really putting my mind on it, I know if all of sudden I’m pregnant, I was ready and my husband would be happy too. Point is we did not plan to not have a baby, and were just letting it come naturally. First, we were living in Jakarta, then Singapore and now we’re settling in Dubai. It was only until we stay in Dubai that I start having these common question ” why am I still not pregnant yet?’ Although my husband has always been very optimistic reminding me that it will happen at the right time, I convinced my husband to see a doctor. So we went to a fertility centre to get both checked, short story we are both healthy and not showing any abnormality that will stop us from conceiving, but fertility center in Dubai was beyond expensive, that was the only down …

Best places to go in Ubud

Ubud is considered as Bali’s cultural art. It’s also home to many good restaurants and local crafts. Ubud is really known for their deep love for art. If Seminyak is known for it’s party crowds, Nusa dua is known for it’s beach, then expect ubud will be the total opposite of this, still in a very good way. Ubud is located in the cool mountains, surrounded by rice paddy fields. Most people come to Ubud to find peace, quietness and to take a break from the crowds in Seminyak. I’ve made a list on cool things you can visit while in Ubud, hope this will help : Campuhan Ridge Walk Expect a to go hiking for 2/3km in a beautiful scenery surrounded by paddy fields. Best time to go here is in the morning, if you’re an early riser, then take this opportunity as your 7pm morning workout in nature then you can have breakfast after the long walk. Don’t forget to take your camera and running shoes with you. Monkey Forest Ubud monkey forest …

We drink this poison Everyday!

Now who doesn’t know Coca-Cola? Most of us need to drink this after finishing our meal. Among all others soda drinks, Coca-Cola is everyone’s favorite for sure. Want to know what it actually does to our bodies? 10 minutes : Just in 10 minutes of drinking coke, we are putting 10 teaspoon of SUGAR. That is taking our maximum limit of daily sugar intake in just one drink, the only reason we don’t throw up after drinking that much sugar is because of phosphoric acid they put in the can that it allows you to keep the drink down. 20 minutes : After putting 10 teaspoon of sugar in you, your body starts to react to the overload sugar causing your insulin to burst and your liver has to work hard to convert the sugar to fat. 40 minutes : After 40 minutes, your liver hasn’t done working to process the can of coke you drank, in this time caffeine has reached through all parts of your body causing your pupil to enlarge, rise in …

Dubai Desert Safari Tour

Before I came to Dubai, Desert Safari was one of the most people suggest me to go , when you visit Dubai it seems like a must to do a safari tour. Personally, me cause I have never seen or been on a desert, I just have no idea what to expect, what to do, or how it’s going to be. The only image I have of a Desert is from movies, and in most of them desert seems like the last place you would want to be, cause they always picture desert as a dry, no life and you’ll die from severe dehydration if you walk in the desert hahahah, well? My husband had a chance to go before me, he went on a morning safari tour with his colleagues, and his feedback was really nice. So when he asked me when I would like to do it too, I said since you’ve just done it, let’s wait until we have guest visiting us in Dubai, then we will take them there, and he agreed …

For the stay at home wife

Growing up I’ve always known what I wanted to become. You know that time of school where teachers would ask you what your dreams are and what you want to be in the future, while most of other kids would think of being an astronaut, doctors, scientist, architects, etc, and when it’s my turn I’ve always answered it with a proud voice that i wanted to become a housewife, a great one. I know what most of people might be thinking when they hear my answer, “if you just want to be a housewife, why even bother going to school? Let alone finishing your university degree?” Thing is, when that question came up, I mean that dream job question, I could not think of anybody else who does a better job that my own mother. Who you guess it right, she is a housewife, a great one. Having such a good role model in my life, how could I not want to be like her? My mother works hard, every single day, when other workers …
