Short Story of My 9th, 10th, and my 11th July

July 9th, 2012

My cousins stayed at my 2nd uncle’s house. But, my mom insisted to go to my grandparents’ house first, of course because she want to see her sister.

We were there for about 3 hours (it means 3 hours alone!) and finally my aunt said that we should go to my 2nd uncle’s house (finally! >.<)

At my uncle’s house, my cousins were practicing music for the night. Few of them also played the computer, online games.

They decided, I would be the violist, my biggest cousin and his sister would be the pianist, 1 of my cousin from Jakarta who masters guitar would be the guitarist, his brother would be the one who plays recorder, my tallest cousin also from Jakarta will be the drummer, his brother would sing, and 1 left, my cousin who born on the same year as me but he’s 1 grade below me, would play bass. The thing that I don’t like about him, he acted like he already mastering the guitar (and the bass), but he actually doesn’t [his character is just like his father’s, oh my]! I play much better than him ==

In the evening, we ate again, at the same restaurant in June 4th :/ We also performed and received standing applause :3

July 10th, 2012

I didn’t meet my cousins until night :(. I stayed at my grandparents’ house. I wanted to go to my 2nd uncle’s house, but my mom didn’t want to.

I stayed there all night. My cousins said that they would come back to my grandparents’ house at night but they didn’t 😦

July 11th, 2012

My cousins came back to Jakarta today. I didn’t meet them, so July 9th was the last time I meet them in this holiday 😦 Bye bye cousins, and uncles and aunts. I hope we’ll meet again next year…

It’s the time to end this holiday series.. Starting tomorrow, I’ll start with my school stories, because holiday ends today, and school starts tomorrow ^^ I just hope for the 9th grade I’ll have a great time with everyone 🙂


Story of my July 7th and July 8th, 2012

July 7th, 2012

It’s July the 7th, and I must go to school (first day of school after the holiday!), but… I didn’t. Hehehehe. I think it’s.. not worth, compare to things I must do, for example, wake up in the morning 4.30AM. In the afternoon I asked my friend who came in, “What’re the activities in school today?” She replied, “Only looking at the class, wrote the lesson schedule and the teachers”. Then I asked her for the lesson schedule and she gave me without asking more 😀

I had a Chinese lesson near my home at the time when school ended.

After my Chinese lesson, as usual, I went to my grandparents’ house! 😀 But, unfortunately, my cousins weren’t there DX there were only my grandparents and my aunt.. 😦 I waited there, ate some things, played my phone, read book (but failed – I can’t concentrate ==)

Few hours passed (it feels like thousands of years), finally my cousins came. They were dropped by my biggest cousin, but then my biggest cousin went to meet his friends. Suddenly my grandparents’ house became very noisy. I was happy. We talked again, and, my cousins became radio announcers again! Well, there wasn’t any funny story again, my cousin refused to make another one and he ignored me when I was mentioning the funny story :/ The radio talked about girlfriends and boyfriends, soccer, with songs as the background sound. But there actually not consistent. The topic changed every 5 minutes 😛

The radio finished because my cousins received a phone call from my cousin (my 2nd uncle’s daughter). She asked my cousins to go to her house (again). So my cousins prepared for themselves, by taking a shower (me too XD)

I don’t know what happened, but my cousin (the one from Jakarta) angry to her mom because of money. Yeah, money. They argued, my cousin said that he needs more money etc, I didn’t pay attention to it because it’s a common thing. His mom gave him money, he accepted it at first, but after that he refused to take it. My grandma asked him to take the money again, and yah, he brought the money.

After that ‘medium-size-fight’, my cousins went to my 2nd uncle’s house. I stayed at my grandparents’ house, alone again DX

I thought I would spent the rest of the day there, alone in my grandparents’ house, but fortunately, my grandpa wanted to spend time with my cousins, so we went to my 2nd uncle’s house! XD My grandpa bought 70 satays too.

When we arrived at my 2nd uncle’s house, there weren’t anyone there. They went outside to eat in the restaurant. My grandparents, my aunt, my mom and I waited, prepared the satay, ate the satay. About 1 hour later, they finally came, also brought food, such as ‘terang bulan’and ‘martabak’. Yum! They also ate the satay, and opened the television. There were our favorite TV program, Indonesian idol. We ate and we watched 😀

It’s so late, the Indonesian idol hadn’t finished but we must go back. My cousins slept in my 2nd uncle for the day. My grandparents and my aunt were dropped at my grandparents’ house, and my mom and I went home..


July 8th, 2012

I didn’t meet my cousins on Sunday.

I went to church. During the devotion (? I’m sorry I don’t know what’s the English but in my language it’s called ‘kebaktian’), I received a phone call from my cousin. I forgot to turn my phone off so it was ringing loud. Ohhh >////<

After the devotion, my mom checked her phone. There were phone calls and text messages. Ah, the reason my cousin called me because my cousins and my 2nd uncle family wanted us to join their lunch together, but we refused.

My dad, mom, and I had soto as our lunch. I really love soto 😀 After that we went home.

I spent the time at home browsing the internet. At 8PM, my mom wanted me to change my clothes.

For dinner, we ate outside 😀 We went to one of the Korean restaurant in my city. We took a package for 4 people. We ate, and we were very full. Like the usual thing in Korean restaurant, before our main menu arrived, usually there were foods in small plates, for the appetizers maybe. And then, the main menu arrived. There were capjay (it’s a Korean noodle, I love it), and 4 plates of raw meat. The waitress (?) grilled them for us. Imagine, we’re only 3 but we took 4 person package. Imagine how full we were! XD

We brought the half capjay and a small plate of cooked meat home.

For the desserts, we had ice coffee (for my dad, it’s  bitter for me), warm cinnamon, vanilla, strawberry, and read beans ice cream. I love the vanilla ice cream the most 😀

The smell of the smoke of the grilled meat stayed on my hair, going to wash it this morning 😛

What’s your favorite TV program? Are there any of Korean restaurant in your city? What’s your favorite food there?

Short Story About July 5th and July 6th, 2012

July 5th, 2012

I arrived at my grandparent’s house in the afternoon. When we arrived there, my mom’s aunt, her daughter, and one of her grandson were in my grandparents’ house, chatted and joked with my aunts and uncles from Jakarta. And my mom also joined them. I was so awkward there >< They kept joking, I joined and yah, but I couldn’t really talk there :/

About 2.30PM, they stopped talking (finally XD Oh, I sounds like a mean girl DX). They went to their home, and my mom, my aunt (my mom’s sister), and I went to the mall. Before that, we said goodbye to my 3rd uncle and his wife because they wanted to go back to Jakarta. See you later, uncle and aunt ><

I arrived at the cinema on the top of the mall at 3PM. My biggest cousin said that the movie will started at 3.30PM. Then, my mom offered us to eat ice cream first. So, we went one floor below to eat it. I ate vanilla noodle ice cream (ice cream that shaped like noodles), 1 of my cousins ate fruit ice cream (vanilla ice cream with few fruits below), and 6 of my cousins ate macedonia (ice cream with quite-hard liquor in the middle) –> I’ve ever tried it but I don’t like it XD. We took +15 minutes to finished our ice creams.

We watched the Amazing Spiderman 4 in the cinema, with my cousins. Well, I like it, no comment about it, because I’m not good at giving comment :), sorry

After that, we went back to my grandparents’ house, and talked and chatted like usual..


July 6th, 2012

Well, today isn’t too fun 😦 2 of my cousins from Jakarta joined my 2nd uncle, my aunt, and my biggest cousin to Lumajang. But they won’t stay there for a night. But still, they will arrived in Surabaya very late midnight.

Finally, I GOT MY LETTERS!! YIHAAAAAAA XDDDDDDDD. This holiday I just got 1 letter on June and 2 letters on July (arrived today). It’s quite unusual for me, because usually I arrive lots of letter every week 😦

The quite fun thing happened in the evening. My 2 cousins (other cousins from Jakarta) acted like radio announcers. They were soooo funny. I couldn’t stop laughing. And one of them also made a funny story. It started about the chickens that my grandpa bought (the conversations and the way he told it made it funny) and ended about…. Oh, I forgot. There were no ending. The story just stopped. I’m going to ask him about the continuation tomorrow, I think XD


Have you watched the Amazing Spiderman 4? What do you think about it? And what’s the funniest story that you’ve ever made, with or without your family?

Eat Again, Very Full

July 3rd, 2012

Remember the 1 car that went to Malang previously? There aren’t any news until evening about them 2 days ago. My mom and I also didn’t go to my grandparents house because my mom was busy. Well, I’ll make it short, because I don’t know what’s happening there, and my life was at usual 😛


July 4th, 2012

I woke up late. So, in the afternoon, my mom and I went to the Chiropractic. There’s a new doctor there, from Jakarta (the old doctor passed away 😦 ) . He explained a lot about my mom’s scoliosis, with more details, not like the previous doctor. Then, he asked about my x-ray. I never done x-ray so I said I didn’t have it. He asked me to take an x-ray. Okay. And one more, the previous doctor said that swimming is good for healing the chiropractic. The new doctor said that swimming for chiropractic isn’t good and he suggested to walk in the water and do some exercises that he told my mom & I. Confusing, but I must do it. Maybe this doctor is more modern than the previous one..

When we had our ‘spinal adjustment’ done, my mom got a text from her little sister (my aunt) that her little sister’s husband already in the plane. Bye uncle :/ See you later…

After went to chiropractic, I went to my grandparent’s house, There were only my aunt (my mom little sister) and my grandma. We waited for a while, and my 3rd uncle with their family came from looking around Surabaya. My cousins brought 3 pizzas. Yumm… Not long after that, my grandpa with my other 2 cousins came. I asked to one of them how was his phone (that went into the swimming pool few days ago), he said his phone was okay, and he can use it now. Yay! Do you know how did he repair his phone? By putting it inside the rice (not the cooked one!) for 2 days (the recommended one is 3 days, but my cousin can’t stand without phone for a long time so he want to use it as fast as possible).

We stayed on my grandparents’ house for about 1 hour and after that we must prepare ourselves for going outside again, EAT. Oh my, too much eat DX

We ate at a Chinese restaurant that we like. My 2nd uncle ordered a lot >< All of us (including my cousins who eat much) felt full. We ate asparagus soup, white rice, fried pigeon, pochai (vegetable), fried noodle, boiled fish, prawn with mayonnaise. Very full. My youngest cousin (sorry) puke, but he didn’t admit it ==

After we finished our dinner, even our stomach were full, 5 of my cousins still wanted to buy ‘es campur’ and ‘es kacang hijau’. Only few of us went home.

My mom dropped my grandparents and one of my cousin at my grandparents’ house. My day finished XD


What did you eat for the big dinner with your big family? Were you very full too?

Family Time

I will continue my story of my holiday with my parents, grandparents, uncles, aunts, and cousins (big family from my mom’s side) 😀

June 29th, 2012

That day was my grandparents’ birthday (They born on the same date and month, but different year). Happy birthday Grandpa and Grandma! 🙂 In the afternoon I practiced music with my cousins. It was for the night, the gathering of my uncles, aunts, parents, and grandparents.

At night, we ate dinner together, at my grandparents’ house. There were too much food. My grandma ordered too much food. Oh my :/ even my 7 cousins who eat much and all my family couldn’t eat them all DX

June 30th, 2012

We went to Trawas on June 30th~

My 2 cousins were in my car. All of my big family stayed in a villa of my uncle’s friend. The cooking utensils are complete, but it’s a quite old villa so I think it isn’t really good (But my uncle’s family love it)

We arrived there in the evening, so we spent our time went around the villa surrounding area. When I arrived at the swimming pool, the villa employee took a long stick with net on it. He took the dead frog inside the swimming pool! OMG…. :/ I went back to the villa and asked my cousins not to swim there x___x

At night, we ate delicious meatballs, chicken satay, and ronde 🙂

July 1st, 2012

In the morning I and few of my big family member walked outside the villa. We looked another villas and took photo of the beautiful mountain.

When we walked back, few of my cousins still sleeping, how lazy XD just kidding. We who walked outside hurriedly eat the remaining meatballs. We took a shower, and prepared for check out.

In the afternoon, all of my cousins and I played the football. 3 of them very good at it, I’m not really good, but I also scored some goals XD One of my uncles played too. We were so tired after about half hour. Waaaa… We were racing back to the villa and took our lunch :p After that, we played music together again. In the middle of our play, one of my uncle asked us to go to the Dlundung waterfall. My father and I joined (My mom decided to chat in the villa). It was so crowded there T.T We didn’t enjoy the waterfall much, although it’s beautiful, because of the crowded condition :/

We checked out around 2PM. My dad drove the car and my mom sit beside him. My aunt, her husband, and one of her son sit with me on the middle seat. My uncle and my cousin’s body are big, so it’s so ‘crowded’ >< There were traffic jams on the way to ‘Batu’ 😦 We arrived at the villa in Batu in the evening.

My aunt and my mom decided the villa rooms. I was in a room with the only girl cousin I have ^^

At night, we played the firework. Yay~!


July 2nd, 2012

Euro 2012 final, right? My cousins and one of my uncle watched it 😛

I woke up at 7.20, looked at my cousin -she still asleep-, and went to sleep again. At 8.20, I woke up, looked at my cousin -she woke up, looked at me, and slept again-, I also slept. At 9, my father knocked at the door and asked us to wake up and prepare for breakfast. My cousin and I were shocked –‘

Didn’t take a shower and only brushed our teeth, we took breakfast. My cousin’s hair was messy XD

After took our breakfast, we swam on the private swimming pool. The water was soooo coooollldddd…. One of my cousin forgot to take out his handphone from his shorts. He realized it after 2 minutes, so it was wet. He dried his phone by using direct sunlight. His father mad when he knew it >< I hope my cousin’s phone is okay 😦

We had a great time there, and our skin got darker :/

In the afternoon we checked out. 1 of my cousin family went to Malang (1 car), and 2 cars went back to Surabaya.

It’s 9PM here but my mom asked me to sleep and she said that all of my aunts, uncles, my grandparents, and cousins already fell asleep.


Did you go somewhere with your family these months? Are there any of your family members or friends who have the same birthday date and month?

Hi Cousins!

 (June 27th, 2012)

2 days ago , my 4 cousins, 2 aunts and 2 uncles from Jakarta (Indonesia capital city) came to Surabaya (my city!) ^^

The first family to come was my mom’s little sister’s family. They arrived at 12 o’clock. I was shocked at my 2 cousins height [G & V], THEY ARE VERY TALL @.@ And I looked at myself, “Oh, why am I so small…”

I had a quite awkward time with G & V because we didn’t meet for a year, so I heard my aunt and my mom chatted about everything. Their story were interesting, between nostalgia and their life stories. And they also complained why were my other 2 cousins, my aunt, and my uncle (my mom’s 3rd brother, her 1st and 2nd brother + his family lives in Surabaya) hadn’t arrived.

Around 2PM, they finally arrived. Yay~ My other cousin (A) is very tall, he’s the tallest among us, cousins. And his little brother, (Jv) is taller than me too DX. Their mom (Ld) gave all of us eclairs that she had made. Very delicious~ :3

We had a quite awkward time with them too, because of the same problem :p

At 4PM, the awkward moment moved away. I talked with my cousins about National Geographic channel, and laughed, better than before ^^

In the evening, we prepared for dinner outside, to a yummy steak restaurant. Jv’s steak that he ordered before my mom’s 1st brother family came, taken by my mom’s 1st brother (D)! Poor Jv… He must waited for half an hour (until our steak already eaten, except D’s wife and son, and he felt very hungry)

After the dinner, we went home. All of the family member from Jakarta stay in my grandparents’ home


(June 28th, 2012)

I went to my grandparents’ home in the afternoon. My mom and I were very hungry, but no food left there. My grandma didn’t cook because in the morning they ate at the soto restaurant. So, my mom and I ordered a fried rice :/

After we ate our fried rice, I practiced music with G & V, and had the name “Son, Daughter, and Grandchildren’s Band” (It’s a band for our grandparents). I play the violin, G plays the electric guitar, V plays the recorder, my mom’s little sister’s husband, R, plays the guitar and arrange our play. My only female cousin, Lf, maybe will play the piano / keyboard (We haven’t practiced with Lf). We will performed June 29th and June 30th. After practicing, I looked at the clock, whoa.. We used hours for practicing our play XD

In the evening, my mom’s sister’s family, my grandparents, my mom and I went to Lf’s house. We talked a lot there~! I was kind of disturbed because my mom and grandma kept asking me and my cousins to speak Chinese. I’m bad at Chinese! DX and also English, English is okay, I’m quite good at it. But I answered their question using Indonesian because I’m not confident to talk in English in front of everyone 😦

7.30PM, Lf and his father (L) <note: Lf’s mom (S) and Lf’s big brother (H) went to a seminar== > asked us to eat ice cream. Of course we agreed!

At the ice cream place, it was so crowded! We couldn’t find tables and seats, so we waited. Lf and I acted like the guards, the table guards, to be exactly. I almost want to laugh whenever I think about it. A group of middle-age woman wanted to take the table that we guarded before (they came after us), of course we were angry, and we won, they didn’t take our table, hahahah 8D After a quite long time, finally we gathered 3 tables, with 10 chairs. Finally we ordered and ate our ice cream.

That’s my story about the 27th and the 28th of June ^^ The thing that I won’t forget is that my family always ask about the bandage above my eyebrows (where I had my mole removed) XD

So, what are your interesting activities these days? How many cousins do you have and do you meet them regularly? Have you ever had a big family reunion?

Unique Way of Washing My Hair

I think you know that I have a bandage above my right eyebrow, and I must keep that bandage dry, from water and sweat. I have problem with this. Why? I can’t wash my hair like the usual way :/ I hadn’t wash my hair for 3 days (iyuhh) and my hair was oily and dirty.

So, I think for another way. What did I do?

I found the unique way of washing my hair 😀 It’s similar to the way the hairdresser clean our hair 8D

First, I must prepare for plastic chair, few thick towel, shampoo (of course), and shower. I asked my mom to be the one who wash my hair.

Second, sit on the chair. Put one of the thick towel on the back of the chair, the one that touch the neck.

Third, put the other thick towel on my forehead.

Forth, my mom washed my hair.

Use the other thick towel to dry my hair.


Finish 😀

Do you know another unique way of washing the hair? Please tell me ^^ I want to try them too :3
