“So many books, so little time.” ~ Frank Zappa 📚
This quote accurately sums up my life right now 😂 I have so many books I want/need to read and not enough time for it! I’m going to have to set aside time everyday from now on just for reading. Does anyone else feel this way right now? 📚
. #qotd : How many books are on your TBR list? 📚
I currently have about 50 on mine 😂 it grows daily.. 📚 happy Sunday everyone! Enjoy the rest of your weekend! ✨
Selamat datang kembali Senin! Kami, para ibu, kembali menjalankan rutinitas.
Saya, seorang ibu rumah tangga dengan satu anak balita dan satu anak bayi, tanpa asisten rumah tangga atau nanny, tanpa ada bantuan nenek atau anggota keluarga lainnya. Di rumah, hanya saya, suami, dan kedua anak kami. Jangan tanya kerepotannya! Karena, hmm.. sama saja kita semua para ibu ini, bagaimanapun sikonnya, pastilah repot. Namun, saya bersyukur dikasih suami yang pengertian dan mau membantu. Dia mengerti bahwa kadang saya ingin santai. Dia mengerti bahwa kadang rumah tak terurus lalu dia membantu membereskan. Saya jalani rutinitas menyiapkan sarapan keluarga, mengantar si anak balita ke PAUD, seterusnya melakukan pekerjaan rumah, mengurus kebutuhan anak-anak sampai malam menidurkan mereka.
Lalu, pada satu titik, saya jenuh. Saya merajuk pada suami minta ART. Ditambah, saya melihat medsos teman-teman perempuan sebaya yang berkarir di luar rumah. Mereka tetap menyiapkan sarapan anak dan suami, berangkat kerja, di kantor mereka berpakaian bagus, berfoto-foto dengan rekan-rekan kerja, makan siang dadakan dengan suami di tempat fancy, begitu pulang, mereka masih sempat berfoto dengan anak-anak yang sedang ditemani belajar. Saya mengeluh. Andaikan saya punya karir di luar rumah.
Kemudian, pada satu kesempatan, saya harus pergi seharian untuk sebuah urusan. Sekadar update ilmu manajemen keuangan. Lagi trend, kan?! Ibu rumah tangga juga harus melek finance! Pada hari itu, Sabtu, kebetulan pas libur kerja suami, saya pun bersimulasi jadi wanita karir. Bangun pagi sekali, saya memompa ASI dulu untuk si bayi, menyiapkan sarapan dan lauk seadanya buat makan siang suami dan anak, menyuap makan si bayi, memandikannya, lalu meninabobokannya kembali. Sementara, si anak pertama belum bangun. Pas sekali, pukul delapan pagi saya berangkat tanpa drama anak menangis ditinggal ibu bekerja.
On the way to the office, —cielah gaya! Haha..— saya senang sekali. Saya bersemangat dengan “simulasi” ini. Tiba di gedung perkantoran bilangan Sudirman, saya naik lift, masuk ke ruangan “kerja”, menimba ilmu, masuk jam makan siang, di pantry saja sehingga saya sempat memfoto gedung-gedung dari ketinggiaan.

Spent a day in Halong Bay, it was beautiful there and I went kayaking for the first time. The water was a really nice temperature but not many fish to see. So if you want to go diving this is not the spot. definitely good to go there during off season so there aren't too many tourist.
Wind of change 🌬 Besides my Eastern European (Belorussian) nationality I also have Georgian roots (explaining my brown eyes and nose ☺️). My grandma on my Dad’s side was from Ossetia. Back then the region was a part of Georgia.
As a child and a young adult I was always a little ashamed of my looks, especially my little bump on my nose 🙈
Now, I am super proud of my roots and proud of my looks that I inherited from my granny 💕 Wish I got a chance to meet her in person.

If you're happy and you know it clap your hands! @kavya_2112 Thanks for volunteering! 🥰
This remarkable photo spot checks off all the boxes. A beautiful fountain, fantastic roller coaster...and me if you decide to swipe left.
Stretching over 300 acres, the park is packed with options as it holds 200 attractions, two children’s areas and 17 roller coasters to choose from. They also have a 20-acre water park, Splash Works. Yea your Fitbit will have a field day counting your steps for sure.
For people wondering what the top rides are to visit - I wouldn’t want to spoil the fun here until you see the rides yourself and find the right comfort/adrenaline rush one for you.
What A Day! Being British I couldn’t help be a snob at the entrance of @canadaswonderland talking about Thorpe Park, Chessington and Alton Towers back home. Showing off how the Canadian rollercoasters will not give me an adrenaline rush but oh boy did I need to take my words back. 🎢Rollercoasters: Worth the queue and longer lasting so it’s not all over in a minute. There’s a hidden gem in Canadian rides that not all are visible so it’s a great surprise when the ride does unexpecting turns and twists. 🚽Amenities: A-mazing. Like England needs to step up their game. The washrooms were so clean, enough bins located everywhere and such a thoughtful area for parents to relax which looked like a Disney castle in itself. 🕰Availability of rides: kind of okay kind of not. Some rides were closed so was disappointed however many more were open with enough options for kids and adults. 🍽Drinks & Dining - EXPENSIVE. My advice; bring your moms biryani and pack your coke cans. I found it too costly in the theme park but definetly get the doughnuts, they were scrumptious. 🚗Parking - $22. Yea that’s still a shock to @wa7ab_mk6 am sure.

Alex and I had a paint-filled date night this week, and it totally reminded me of the scary armoire in my parents bedroom when I was a kid, and also about how much I love my grandma. Which was weird. So I wrote about it in my blog. The link is in my bio! 🎃🧡 #blogging#writing#amwriting#personalblog

Our visit to @canadaswonderland was a great experience that has left us with memorable moments at different locations. Without a doubt, Canada’s Wonderland has plenty of picture-worthy backdrops. In fact, it has earned a place on Canada’s Top 10 Most Instagrammed locations list! This is my top favourite where it made me feel as if am not in a theme park at all.
It was one of those mornings. You know, when you wake up late and then have to rush too get ready. Then rushing to get the kids dressed and out the door. Then as your leaving one kids whining about being hungry because you didn’t have time to make breakfast 😬. Luckily, I had some @nothinbutfoods granola bars on hand that I could grab and go. This granola is the only kind I’ll eat and it’s kind of my guilty pleasure. As a mom, I feel good sharing especially when I know the kids are getting real ingredients with their products. Now that I’m thinking about it, I’ve become aware they will probably be stealing my yummy treats for themselves. http://liketk.it/2F9t2 #firstname.lastname@example.org ✨ Shop my daily looks by following me on the LIKEtoKNOW.it shopping app
