Home For Family & Friends (PART III)

I came all the way back to Medan to see my family and also attend my dearly friend wedding, Rosabella. She’s my classmate in high school and we’re 1 group. I’m so missing that moments when we acted ridiculous and crazy. Now she’s married with Neoh Soon Keong. I’m so happy for them.

The wedding reception will be held at Grand Aston Ballroom. I asked my mom to come along with me. I met my group friends there, Fifi Sofiah, Jennifer Octavianie, Dewi and Linda Fong, They’re all wonderful ladies with cute children, HOT MAMA!! Little bit awkward because we’ve separated for a long time with our own time, job and family. But later on we’re back to normal. Also I met other friends. It’s good to meet them all.

Back to wedding, the ballroom is big and nice. It’s quite different with the ordinary/usual wedding reception party. I can’t find her anywhere. Usually the bride and groom will greet us at the front door of the ballroom. The decoration is garden theme with a lot of purple color (I thought she loves green color).


This photo caught my eyes, so lovely and serene.

667 LOVE

We’re went inside and wait. Reunion with old friends with their children.


After passed 7.00 pm, finally I can see her in her wedding dress holding her love of  a lifetime. I’m so happy to see her. She looks like mermaid.


Age is just a number, as you can see the photo below, the HOT MAMA still act like a little girls. Cute!


Then we have dinner with live music. Medan wedding reception usually very merry and a lot of performances, this time really different, I love the concept, with speeches. I love when her little sister gave her speech for her beloved sister, so much love. Rosa gave her sister a big hug. Wonderful family.

She walked around and finally meet us. She’s surprise to see me and she’s so thankful for my presence. We’re taking pictures. I’m SHORTY! Her husband so TALL… I like like a hobbit.


Just a short time from 7.00 pm to 9.30 pm, but I feel so good to see everybody.

Me and my mom have to catch train to go back to Kisaran. I’ll spend 1 day at my hometown then go back again to Jakarta.

Home – July 2012 (Part I)

I’m going Home again.. The main purpose is attending Benny, my little brother’s Wedding with his wife, Dewi. I’m the big bro, have to come and congratulate them. Wedding date is July 12th, 2012 and the Wedding reception is July 14th, 2012. I’m so happy.

July 9th, 2012 – Monday

Just a short day, off from the office then take the flight at 5.50 PM with Citilink. Arrive to Medan, then picked up by my Mom and Min, my 2nd sister. Then we have a dinner at Asia Megamas (I’ve been here before and write it in my previous blog). Order some my favorite foods, such as Green Chilly Fried Pork and Grilled Stingray fish. Delicious!


July 10th, 2012 – Tuesday

Early morning go to the wet market with Mom and Wie (my big sister). I’ve read a blog with wet market photo, they seem great so I try to capture some photo too. My mom bought some pork, vegetables and eggs for dinner.

We have breakfast at Mie Pangsit A KHUN, It’s delicious.. I love it! There’s a lot of things to do for the wedding preparation. We went to SELECTA to register and reconfirm for the wedding reception hall and party, then go to SPOSA for my Mom, Wie and Min’s night gown fitting. The night gown is finally done and they seem nice. After that we’re going home with my aunties. On the journey, we’re having Satay for dinner.


July 11th, 2012 – Wednesday

Wake up and having breakfast. My mom seems busy preparing the food for family gathering tonight. I found out that my formal shirt is too dark and my mom asked me to buy the new one with brighter color. Benny also asked me to design Carwash voucher for the lucky prizes at the wedding reception. It’s all done. Just for ya, brother!

I always love the family gathering dinner. Delicious foods, chattering and laughters. Thank you Mom, for the spicy beef. (drool….!)

Home 2012 Part V

The last day in Medan. I’ll go back to Jakarta at 8.00 pm. My sisters were going to work, so I’ll spend my time with my mom. Meet Mr. Sarman again for the wedding organizer stuffs. Then the topic continued to the dress/night gown for the wedding reception. Mr. Sarman suggested it’s better to make the dress than rent it. Rent a dress is expensive and sometime it’s hard to find a good design and size that fit the body. Making or design a dress/gown can be more comfort, satisfying and own the dress itself.

I just remember I had a friend who works as Professional Fashion Designer. His name is Fonti Ferryza. I call him Ferry. He’s also a close friend of Mr. Sarman. So we’re going to see him. Just a short introduction, then Ferry starts to sketch a design for my mom. I think it’s a beautiful dress. I can see my mom loves the design. She asked to make 1 more design. She’ll look great with it.

After that, we’re just spending time meeting aunt and close friends. Go back to home and take a bath. Then buy some Bolu Meranti for my friends at Jakarta. Go to the airport.. And depart.

Go back to Jakarta. Go back to the routines… I’ll be back again in July 2012, for my Brother’s Wedding day. See you again..

Love you, Mom, Wie, Min, Ben..
