Mommy’s Other Love

We have just found out (she is trying to keep it as a secret from us) that Mommy now has another love!!

Mommy always wanted a cat but she never got one (well, one when she was in her teen but only for a couple of months) because of her asthma.

Now…she gets her wish to have a cat..well, more like her brother’s family cat. So, for the past few months she had been loving that awful kitty every weekend. When she came home and left us all alone in her dorm, she was enjoying her time playing with her pet-nephew (not only her Hu-nephew now).

She has lots of his pics in her mobile which is unacceptable, it supposed to be only us in her mobile phone!

Anyway, this not so cute cat is called Gembul. He sometimes sleeps with Mommy (there’s one pic in her mobile showing him sleeping on her arm) and chases her for food.

I am going to share his pic, I think you all will agree with me that HE IS NOT AS CUTE AS US!

First of all…I am a bad Mommy :( I have forgotten my dearest baby’s Gotcha Day :(

I had a lot of things on my mind lately and somehow I forgot that on March 11, 2012 I had brought Papoe home. I looked at my calender just now and was shocked because today is March 15…I have forgotten the important March 11. I am so sorry Papoe.

Happy (late) Gotcha Day my Dearest Papoe…

13 Sea Turtle Pictures From Gili Trawangan

It’s Thursday, so it’s time to share Thursday Thirteen ;)

Do you still remember about my mom’s trip to Lombok to hike Mount Rinjani? (you can see it> Here), she didn’t only hike to the mountain, she also visit the famous island Gili Trawangan. It’s famous amongst foreigner tourist. My Mom even said she felt like a minority there as there are more westerners than Indonesian….I can’t say much about that, to know more you have to read her blog >Here


The Crowded Gili Trawangan Island

She is not a beach person so she got easily bored there till she saw a sea turtle conservation. She immediately took pictures of those babies. Sea turtle is Indonesia language is Penyu and the baby is called Tukik.

If I had a Tattoo

My religion doesn’t allow me to have tattoo because it will block the water when we had Wudhu (cleaning before praying), however we are allowed to have temporary tattoo using henna because henna doesn’t block our skin’s pores.

One of my students is really talented in drawing with henna (you can see some pictures using henna here> google). I asked her to draw a simple one…which is a turtle ;)


Too bad she draws it upside down, it is seen from her point of view when she draws it. But I like it anyway :)

When I get home, I immediately take picture of my turtles near my temporary tattoo ;) Continue reading

We Are Teachers

Last Friday (January 23), Mommy took us to her school to teach the little ones about Turtles :)

Mommy teaches junior and senior high school, but her school starts from pre-k till high school. One of the Kindergarten teachers asked Mommy to share about us. She immediately agreed…well, she always likes to brag about us ;)

The class was K-2 (Kindergarten level 2…or something like that). She prepared a simple presentation.

I am featured again!!!

I think we had mentioned that we have an instagram account (here), mommy mostly shares about us but sometimes also about her trip and students….but, again, mostly us ;)

There are two accounts that she likes so much, they are @_iliketurtles and @insta_turtle_addicts . She likes it because those accounts share beautiful turtles’ pics.

 I was lucky to be featured in I like turtles TWICE and recently I was shared in Insta Turtle Addicts. I was thrilled!
