Om Swastiastu (it’s a Balinese welcome greeting, means: May the God Almighty Bless Us All),
Welcome to my blog! There is an Indonesian proverb, saying: tak kenal, maka tak sayang (literally means: to like something/ someone, you have to know it/ him/ her first), through this page I hope you will catch what this blog is about. Then, it is up to you either you will like it or not (who am I to force you to like my blog?).
I will blog everything related to culture, food, writings, nice photos, and many other things (including our struggle to cure my husband advanced prostate cancer that has spread to the bones). My blog has 6 categories: culture, husband’s cancer, life, snapshots, musings and uncategorized, because, frankly, it would be difficult for me to classify it.
Let’s say, this blog is about parts, when they are assembled, create thing I call life .
What’s more, blogging can excuse my egocentric side as it will be camouflaged in a productive way with a bonus that the bits and pieces of my life will not be forgotten.
I am living in Denpasar city (Bali Island), a place where tradition and modernity cramped together, but miraculously I survive. I work for the Government (OK. Don’t start thinking of things irritate your life and blame me for that), enjoy cooking but always try as much not to spend more than an hour in the kitchen, like to capture beautiful scene, using iPad-most of the time (eg. my daughters, blooming flowers, butterflies and bugs, nice scenery, or the dog while drinking right from the tub with his two paws dipping in). I do sport (granny-style, walk on treadmill) twice a week for 30 minutes (or less) depends to my emotional state.
Your visit/ nice comment/ like/ follow for my blog will make my day. I hope you will enjoy reading my blog.
Om Santih, Santih, Santih, Om (May Peace will always be with us)
