About Bubu, Cali and Timtam

It was hard when we first moved into this house.  I was emotionally distressed.  But there was this little thing that we feel grateful for.  It was these 3 feral kitties hanging around our house.  They made a habit of showing up in the morning and afternoon expecting leftover food.  They were young maybe not even a year old and we guessed they were siblings.  We called them Bubu (Abu-abu / white grey spots, male), Cali (calico, female), and Timtam (Hitam / white black spots, male). 

Their predictable presence everyday helped us create a familiar routines in the chaos of the big move.  They soften and warmed the strange new place we just moved into.  When I looked out my windows and see unfamiliar view, I always feel much better when I spotted these 3 kitties playing around in the front yard or napping among the bushes.  

Bubu found top of the car is a great spot for napping and watching his teritorry

They distrusted people and ran away if we got too close.  We never been able to touch them.  Bubu was the bravest and the one closest to us.  He would jump and hanging out on the kitchen window ledge and watching people in the house.  Sometimes he came inside the house checking things out and bolted out again.  More than one occassion he stole our chicken or fish from kitchen table!  We found that amusing and laughed.

The Story of Finding the Perfect House

Happy Holidays!  

Seems like everyone is going somewhere fun, since Jtown had no traffic at all this morning! Yaay :)

I'm sure malls and other favorite vacation destinations are jam-packed with people.  That's why BJ and I are spending some nice quiet time at home this holiday.

We might be having one or two parties until the New Year but that is all.  No out of town vacation is being planned at the moment.  Now that we have a flexible working time, we are able to plan our vacation some other time, whenever we like :)  And certainly not during peak seasons when the prices are high and it's crowded with tourists everywhere!

first holidays in the new home :)

What makes me excited this year is that we will be spending our first holiday in our new home.

The Essentials of Cool and Comfy Bedroom

Oh, is it end of September already? How time flies when we got so many things to do like.. how about house hunting and the big move!  For you guys up north it’s the end of summer and you probably start welcoming the fall.  But here’s always summer in Jtown :) sunshine all year! 

It has been a long dry months over here, though… We haven’t got any rain for many weeks and the temperature is rising.  My poor plants are drying up :’(  Thanks God for the aircon in my office, otherwise I wouldn’t get any job done because my brain refused to function in the heat and I’d rather took a nap in the bedroom with the cats!  LOL

Mell & Miu blissful afternoon nap <3

Sometimes a good night sleep is impossible as we struggle with heat and bugs.  Yes, those pesky little mosquitoes.  So, how do we create a nice comfy bedroom and get some sleep we need during these hot dry months?  Let me share you some of the things I did:

MONDAY LOVES: Chic & Pretty Workspace

Happy Monday :)
Everyone had a crazy night out with friends or lounging by the pool on the weekend?  Well, now it's time to go back to work!  What I need to get myself ready for a week full of activities is lots of black coffee and some organizing.  The sight of a tidy and pretty workspace in the morning makes me happy :) and I feel like I can do anything!
I always look for inspirations from Pinterest on how to create a chic, comfortable place I'd love to spend lots of time working.  Here are some of my faves:

Meet Mell & Miu, Our Resident Cats

I think it is time to introduce our cats in residence, caraMell & Miu <3
You may have seen them a few times on my posts, and there is a dedicated page of them here :)  

Mell & Miu were rescued kittens that had adopted us and changed our life.  There's an article about them on Catster.com, a US online cat magazine, you can read the complete story here

Back in summer 2010, BJ and I was visiting our family in our hometown.  We were a couple of years married, with no children.  I used to want a baby and could tear up whenever I heard a baby's crying.  Well, they say God works in a mysterious way.  I never knew a small event that morning would chance my life.
