fix you...

mom's birthday today, and I know she'll wish God to send her the only man she loved...
my daddy is mom's inspiration. yes, daddy is my inspiration too... but now, the topic is mom. She now lost her inspiration, no sophisticated dishes for lunch and dinner, no cookies and cakes for afternoon tea time too... and even no tea time now because she doesn't want to have it alone...
before, mom went to market almost everyday to buy fresh ingredients, she walked early in the morning before daddy's awaked, but then when she's done, my dad were always already there to pick her up home... now, mom goes to market infrequently, my auntie who lives nearby goes for her...
a lot of routines were gone along with daddy...  so what I want to give to mom is happiness and strenght to move on... wish you get your passion back one day... I love you mom! HAPPY BIRTHDAY! HUG!
When you try your best, but you don't succeed

When you get what you want, but not what you need
When you feel so tired, but you can't sleep
Stuck in reverse

And the tears come streaming down your face
When you lose something you can't replace
When you love someone, but it goes to waste
Could it be worse?

Lights will guide you home
And ignite your bones
And I will try to fix you

And high up above or down below
When you're too in love to let it go
But if you never try you'll never know
Just what you're worth

Lights will guide you home
And ignite your bones
And I will try to fix you

Tears stream down on your face
When you lose something you cannot replace
Tears stream down on your face
And I...

Tears stream down on your face
I promise you I will learn from my mistakes
Tears stream down on your face
And I...

Lights will guide you home
And ignite your bones
And I will try to fix you

(fix you, coldplay)

posies go abroad

they're happened in my maternity leave, made them one by one while looking after baby S:)
the posies are requested by a friend who is a friend of kikulu's founder. the kikulu foundation is a nonprofit foundation supporting education for women and children based in texas. kikulu partners with various fair trade organizations and individual artists around the world, read more here. My friend asked me if i want to participate for kikulu foundation by making posy medallion. of course i do!:) here they are.
posy medallion is a trash-accessory. it's made from upcyling unused caps.
-to be "all out" is not only about ourself, but also this earth-

RIP Daddy 2/4/1951-18/4/2012

Back when I was a child, before life removed all the innocence
My father would lift me high... and dance with my mother and me
And then... Spin me around 'till I fell asleep
Then up the stairs he would carry me
And I knew for sure... I was loved

If I could get another chance
Another walk... another dance with him
I'd play a song that would never ever end
How I'd love love love, to dance with my father again

When I and my mother would disagree
To get my way I would run from her to him
He'd make me laugh just to comfort me
Then finally make me do just what my mama said
Later that night when I was asleep
He left a dollar under my sheet
Never dreamed that he would be gone from me

If I could steal one final glance
One final step one final dance with him
I'd play a song that would never ever end
Cause I'd love love love to dance with my father again

Sometimes I'd listen outside her door
And I'd hear how mama would cry for him
I'd pray for her even more than me
I'd pray for her even more than me

I know I'm praying for much to much
But could you send her the only man she loved
I know you don't do it usually
But Dear Lord... She's dying to dance with my father again

Every night I fall asleep
And this is all I ever dream...

(dance with my father, luther vandross)
love you so much daddy, may you rest in peace, we miss you badly... promise you to take care of mommy...

it was 3 months ago when my office held the competition, and I didn't want to join at first because I think my blog is a craft blog, how could I compete with those journalist blog, but... hmm... why not??? then I sent the form:) I have to write on the form the reason why I deserve to be the winner, and I write a lot about passion.
the announcement happened last thursday, and still the same excitement everytime i remember the moment, I shouted loudly "it is toscaberries!" when I saw my blog on the screen while the host declare the best blog, I was holding my friend's hand, and almost jumping... hahaha, people there turning to me, and I was very sure my cheek blushing sooo much!:p
I still cant believe it... but I'm very excited with all the feelings inside!!! it is a very unforgetable moment for myself, and maybe will not happen for the second times, so let me feel deeply this euphoria:p

when i'm back to my cubicle that day, my lovely office mates welcome me with confetti, and they were dancing in their mask while yelling happily, thankyu sistas, you're all cute, wakakaka 'lol'
