Test Of Proficiency In Korean (TOPIK)

I was doing my TOPIK test on January 23, 2011.

My Beloved Grandma

Facebook status:
Jan 23 is the date when my beloved Grandma passed away. She still could say 'Hallelujah' in the midst of her suffering from illness. The memory of her reminds me to be a praying mother just like what she did for her children. I miss you, Grandma. Till we meet again.

There is a posting I wrote about Grandma few years ago. Click it here!

Susanto: my great chef

Facebook status:
day 3: This afternoon, I dreamt about Susanto joining a cooking competition and he asked me helping him to cook the rice. Strange but a funny dream ^^

I think I dreamt about San joining a cooking competition is because of since we moved to the new house (one month before Joshua was born) he practiced a lot of cooking. He was preparing himself to cook because I couldn't move freely with my pregnancy and I would be busy taking after the baby soon after he was born.

His progress is amazing for such an amateur like him. Two years ago he only can cook instant noodle (with his own preferance - he doesn't like to add the soy sauce and chili sauce), then my mom taught him how to cook egg. Now, he can follow what the recipe says and even make his own recipe.

So, I proudly introduce to you, My Superchef!

Sweetest Escape

Facebook status:
day 9:reminded that I have the sweetest escape - "Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest." Matthew 11:28

I was loaded with lots of works since the coming of Joshua Songmin. Not to mention that I don't like his presence, I do like to have him sooooo muchhhh. But, the idea of having a newborn baby, starting study at the same time and living far away from the family is not the best idea after all. I was so exhausted with the demand from the scholarship provider which requested me to pass certain level of exam while at the same time I have to manage my time between school and baby. I still have to do the houseworks although San has helped a lot to do it.

When Joshua Songmin was sick at the hospital, the burden became heavier and heavier. I really want to go back to Indonesia for a month or at least two weeks vacation right after the exam finished. I thought it would be the best escape, go to where my family is. Until one day when I sat in my desk, my eyes saw the writing on the free tissue pocket gift from a Church. It was not a new verse to me. I have read and heard it many times. But this time, the meaning is exactly what I need.

God has spoken to me in His way.

New year at the hospital

Facebook status:
29 des: appa gom, omma gom, agi gomi da appayo...otohke...TT TT TT...
(translation: father bear, mother bear, child bear are TT TT...)

Following my facebook status on Dec 29, on New Year's Eve Joshua was starting to get fever. I realized it nearly at midnight and quickly trying to low his body temperature. But his temperature was going up and down until 4.30am, then I decided to bring him to hospital.

We faced an unforgettable experience exactly at New Year 20110101 at the hospital. I cried and feel so sad to see him lying on the hospital bed. He was so cranky on the first day but he could smile on the next days. He cried and refused everytime we gave him the medicine.

Joshua Songmin, we pray that you will stay healthy. God, please hear our prayer.

PS. We heard that many friends prayed for Joshua Songmin. From the deep of our heart, we want to say thank you for keep Joshua in your prayers. Thank you for your care and love.
