Best Posts Of 2017

Alhamdulillaah, we've reached the end of 2017. We'll soon see the year 2018, insha Allah. Many great things happened this year and so are my blog posts. Although this blog hasn't gained enough readers nor PV, but I believe it will be better next year. One of the ways to make it come true is by joining some blog collaborations.

This collaboration is about telling you my best posts of 2017. There should be 5 posts and I chose the posts I like so much because of the deep of experience I had through these posts. Okay, here they are:

Another Boy in My Life

This year's great things is started by the coming of my 3rd child. In February I was told that the baby to be was a boy. I have two sons already, so this baby completes the boy-series of my life. 

I was expecting a baby girl. I did. But when it turned out to be a boy, it is great. I know what Allah has given must be always something good, including the presence of this baby boy who looks like me. Finally, I have two sons who look like me. Haha...

Jaundice, After 7 Years

The euphoria of having another baby turned into a sad thing. The newborn had to stay in the hospital for 3 days suffering from jaundice. I was very, very shocked and sad. This is my 3rd baby and I raised him the wrong way? Masha Allah. What kind of mom am I?

My Sons' Ramadan

There's always a silver lining after the cloud. During last Ramadan, not only I have learnt something new to raise a baby, but also I enjoyed seeing my bigger sons learnt to do fasting. I couldn't believe they finally did it. Something that I wasn't expected too much.
The first day of Ramadan was hard and I worried a lot but it turned well. Thank God. And after Day One, it went up and down but still on the right track. After all, everything went easier than I had thought. I think I was very blessed.

Ginger, My Best Friend During Ramadan's Suhoor

Still talking about Ramadan, I shared something I did for these years during Ramadan. A healthy and simple way to give my family a good drink for suhoor. And what I really love about sharing it is that some people were influenced by this story and wanted to try. Alhamdulillah.

Well, those are my best posts of 2017. What about you? What are the greatest moments along 2017? Wanna share them with me?

Teaching Kids About Hajj, Not Only Fun But Also Surprising!

Early in this September, my sons, Mr. Inventor and The Professor went on a hajj teaching ritual class. It is an annual class conducted by the regional teaching department. There were more than one thousand students from15 different elementary schools. It took place at the local square.

This year is special for us because male students had to wear ihram, a clothing of male hajj pilgrims. I was imagining it would be great as kids would learn almost the real hajj would like. The last year class didn't obligate male students to wear ihram, just white clothing.

Surprisingly, Mr. Inventor refused to attend the class.

"I will not go," he said.

"Why not?" I asked.

"I just don't want to."

Okay...it became a problem for me. I needed to find out what caused him not to. Mr. Inventor is 9-year-old now, so I think it is common for such a boy to feel uncomfortable about something new. Perhaps he wanted to look good with the ihram.

I persuaded him to go. I told …

My Siblings And I

It's the three of us. Yes, we are siblings. I'm the middle child. I have an elder sister and a younger brother. Both of them live close to our mom in Jogja. My Sister
It's so funny to remember our childhood. We were, actually, not good siblings. I seemed to always had arguments and fights with my sister. I didn't like her and I think that she didn't like me either. It's understandable as she's only 2 years older than me. My sister and I shared the same room for years. We had a big table in our room for us to study. It was the only thing, I guess, that we agreed to share. The rest were things that we called 'mine' and 'yours'. The next funny thing is I missed my sister once after she left home for college. She had to stay in Solo for her bachelor degree. She returned home once a month or so and that made me felt lonely. Then I started to miss her. And the feeling got bigger when she got married. My sister is a tough person. She lives with…

Beautiful Hijabs From Hidden Pearls [A Review]

Last December I went home to Jogja for a holiday with my family. It was an end-of-semester holiday actually and I spent most of the days with my kids while my husband came later. We stayed at my mom's house which used to be the place I live through my younger years. Coming home and enjoy the atmosphere of romanticism of the past is always wonderful. I took my sons to places I'd like them to see so that they can learn something new. And they would be able to get to know their mom better. I showed them my high school, the local library I used to go, even my elementary school reports.

I put my pink batik dress and a Plain Deluxe Hijab from Hidden Pearls on. The hijab covered me beautifully. Even my mom asked me about it. Alhamdulillaah *smile* The hijab is soft, smooth, looks expensive and non see-th…
