Nasi Tumpeng

Hi... Hello... 

It's nice to be back again to this blog, after more than 2 months absence... Why? What happened? How are you? Where were you? Maybe you will ask me those questions... He he, I am really just fine, everything is okay and I am still here, in Semarang Indonesia, though not in my house...yup, last February I moved from my little home sweet home to a rent house. That's why I am so sorry I couldn't visit and update this blog. I was really busy cleaning, sorting, packing and rearranging all stuffs...so many things, I can't believe I have and keep all those things, big and small even tiny things in my house.

I remember we built that house when we were just a newlywed, only the two of us, me and my husband. A small house with only 2 bedrooms and 1 bathroom seemed really fit us. But, now, ten years later, our 4 little angels are already here with us, and they all grow up soooo quick ... we feel like we are all squashed ... We need more rooms, a wider space to stretch and run around ... So, we think it is the time to renovate our home...



It is not easy to leave the house, really. So many memories there, mostly happy of course. But the thought of having a more proper home reduced the sadness a bit. 

Before we started the renovation, we had a selametan with some of the builders. Again, I served nasi tumpeng and ayam ingkung. I chose nasi tumpeng kuning as my children love nasi kuning (yellow rice). That nasi tumpeng was designed for about 12 - 15 people with fried chicken, fried noodle, kering tempe, sambal goreng kentang dan ati ayam, perkedel kentang and telur rawis.  They were all served in a big bamboo platter. The ayam ingkung was served separately, in another smaller bamboo platter. Everybody liked them so much. They were so yummy. Unfortunately, just like my previous nasi tumpeng, they were all not made by me. I asked my friend to help me because I didn't have the time of course. 

At that time we prayed together, hope Allah SWT always bless us and the renovation process will run smoothly without any difficulties. Amien...
