New Year Resolution

>> Dec 30, 2009

This post is a tag that is given by Risma, the owner of lovely blogs : mommy mayonnaise, blog perempuan rumahan and cerita film. Thanks for tagging me, Risma…

Actually, I’ve never make any resolution on every New Year before, or just thinking at a glance about it. So, this is my first time. Well, there is always the first time for everything, right?

Of course, first, I should say that I feel so grateful for everything that I have had in this year. What is my resolution for next year? I realize that I still have to do some self improvements. I still have several bad habits that I should change and I also have to change my bad character, or at least decrease it. I’m a stubborn woman. My hubby has often complained about this, my stubbornness.

I think I’ll write down a list about things that I have to change. It seems that the list will be long enough, hehehe. It doesn’t matter at all, because I want to be a better person. One more thing, I’ll also rewrite my vision book. I wrote down all my wishes there. I hope things that I have wished for and it isn’t achieved this year, it will happen next year. Wish Allah answer my prayers

Dear all, this post is also my last post in this year. See you in 2010; hope all the goodness will always be with us. Happy New Year 2010, everyone

Should Parents Compromise with Their Children?

>> Dec 29, 2009

I’ve written previously a post about what you should do as parents if you make mistakes to your child. It said that as long as you does it in a proper way, no need to hesitate in asking for apologize to your child.

What about compromise then? Some parents still assume that compromise shows their weakness, giving in and it will begin their loosing control to their children. Some parents still prefer to stick to their original demand to handle their children, whereas, compromise means that parents appreciate and understand the thoughts, ideas and feelings of their children.

As I mentioned before,compromise actually is a process of giving and taking. It isn’t shown parents’ weakness at all, but more to an effort to achieve a win–win situation for everyone involved.


Is compromise similar with negotiation? No, it’s different with negotiation. Based on the definition, negotiation expresses the right to say no, to refuse the offer/deal or to walk away. Compromise involves giving and taking. It is assumed from the beginning that there will be an agreement. The only question is what form the agreement will take and who will give way on what.

Compromise involves looking at the separate and common interests of an issue and seeing if there is a way for both sides to get some or most of what they want.

Ok, to give you more clear comprehension, I give you an example of compromise situation here: you need to get the grocery shopping done that morning (nonnegotiable), but you don't mind whether you get it done early or late (area of compromise). Your child has two favorite morning TV programs they want to watch, one early and one late. They want to watch both but there isn't time between them to get the shopping done. The compromise is the fact that you are prepared to time your shopping so your child gets to pick one show to watch, the one they like best. Everyone gets something they want, and your child learns to determine what is really important to them and at the same time learns they can't always get everything they desire. Well, it’s clear enough, right?

I’ll divide this topic in two posts. In the next post of this topic, I’ll mention the difference between compromises with surrender, the proper way for parents to say a compromise and the limit of compromise that parents should know. See you…

Teach Your Children to Compromise

>> Dec 23, 2009

Compromise actually is a process of giving and taking, a sign of strength not weakness, and an avenue toward a win – win situation for everyone involved. By teaching your children to solve problem among them with compromise, you also train them to learn to discuss and to build their empathy feeling.

If you have child more than one, apply compromise method in your
family earlier. Start it from little things. Ex: when your children struggle each other to have your attention, tell them to ‘draw’ the order; to decide who will be the first, second… The other has to wait, listen and be patient waiting his/her turn.

An expert said that compromise can be taught to children since 4 or 5 years old. In this time period, your child still won’t be understood if you explain the meaning of compromise, negotiation, or diplomacy. So, the appropriate way to teach your child is by applying it in their games.

While your
children are playing, it can be often if then quarrel or ‘conflict’ happens. The cause usually is no one wants to wait his/her turn to play; every child wants to be the first. If between them there is none who wants to give way, as parents, you should involve solving the situation. It’s the right time for you teaching them compromise. You may give alternative solutions, but with your guidance, let your children have the solution together.

I’ll continue this compromise topic in my next post. In my opinion, compromise thing in a family is one of interesting topic to be discussed. You might have your own question, should parents compromise with their child? Well, we’ll discuss it later.

A Husband’s Confusion

To start the week, today I post my favorite comic, For Better or Worse by Lynn Johnston.

I post this comic to all husbands that always confuse in choosing what kind of present they will give to their beloved wife in any occasion like celebrating feast day, birthday or wedding anniversary. The lesson is: if you confuse, don’t make the decision by yourself, discuss it first with someone that you can trust. Maybe they will give you better ideas. Hahaha…

My Husband’s Food Creation

Hi, have a nice weekend to all of you…

Today post is about one of my hubby’s hobbies. My
hubby loves to cook. He’s good at the kitchen. Whenever he has spare times, he makes his favorite dish or experiment on making a new creation. Being compared with him, my cooking ability is just average; I’m a typical woman who has just cooked after becoming someone’s wife, hehehe. Before marriage, cooking isn’t one of my hobbies…

Though my husband is good at cooking things, every day meal is still my responsible. Thank God, he has never protested my home cooking; and moreover, I can learn a lot about cooking from him.

In this post, I’ll share some pictures of his noodle food creations. We have these pictures because we’ve ever joined them to a cooking contest several months ago. Yes, we don’t win the contest (though I wonder why, hahaha); but I think the food’s performance are good enough to share here. I don’t translate in detail each food’s name and I don’t mention the recipes; but if you are interested to know the recipe, please let me know, I’ll send it to you…


  • Mi Goreng Ceker - Fried Noodle with Crispy Fried Chicken Skin Legs.

  • Mi Kuah Wortel - Gravy Carrot Noodle. Look at the orange gravy, it's a smooth blended carrot...



  • Parodi (Panggang Roti Isi Mie) - Toast Wheat Bread with Fried Noodle inside.


  • Mie Goreng Torang (Tauco Jamur Merang) - Fried Noodle with Tauco Sauce and Mushroom.

Couple’s Corner: Shopping Experience

>> Dec 16, 2009


Rodliz’s Nest
I’m not a spontaneous buyer; I use to write a shopping list or at least make a plan in my mind before leaving home to go shopping. This habit doesn’t change much after I’ve become a wife. Before marriage, I really enjoy shopping alone at malls, or wandering around a mall to do window shopping… I love spend hours at a big book store for free reading the latest books. Just seeing displayed good stuffs can be so refreshing for me!

After marriage; there’s no more shopping alone at malls, my hubby
forbid me doing it. For buying daily household needs, I use to buy it at nearby stores. We only go to the mall to buy needed stuff that it isn’t available at little stores. We seldom buy things to fill our wardrobe, twice a year shopping for clothes is quite enough for us. Of course as a woman, I like wearing good clothes; but I’m not a fashionista who always wants to catch up the latest trend or every big sales. I’ve my own style. I’m also not crazy in branded things, it’s only because we still can’t afford it, hehehe.

My hubby like to shop in a flea market, he’s good in bargaining (not like me). We go to a flea market almost every week to buy fresh foods. When we’re at a flea market, I use to only follow him here and there; he’s totally in charge.

We avoid credit card, we always pay in cash or using our debit cards. I think it’s the safest way because we won’t get trapped in debt. Living debt free is so enjoyable, right?

My
hubby is more spontaneous than me in buying things. Our finance condition is tight now, so, I have to accompany him often to remind him whether he needs or just wants the stuff. We should think twice before paying expensive things…

Well, it’s a brief story of mine, how about you? If you want to know other
couple’s shopping experience, just click the badge above!

Don’t Be Late to Maximize Potency of Your Child’s Brain

>> Dec 15, 2009

I think most of parents have already known that the first four years age of a child is golden age times. Why? Child’s intelligence ability will develop fast as much as 50% in the first four years; 30% for 4-8 years old children and only 20% for 8-18 years old. So, based on this fact, the best times for parents’ role to maximize potency of their children’ brain is the first four years...

For several parents, giving lessons to under five years old
children is still taboo. They assumed that children are still plain; and it’s better to let them grow and develop by themselves. What a pity; because of their unawareness, these parents don’t make the best use of golden age of their children. The neglect of golden age times will result in children’ learning difficulty, especially at their primary school times.

Center of children’ growth and development is the brain. What can you do as parents to maximize the use of your child’s golden age times?


Give proper nutrient since early age.
There is much nutrient needed for brain development: protein and amino acid, AA-DHA, gangliosida, kolin, and micro nutrient (iron, zinc, iodium, folat, vitamin A). This entire important nutrient is available completely in breast milk. That’s why breastfeeding your baby is very important! To know more about giving proper meals for children, it’s better if you consult to a nutritionist.


Give enjoyable stimulation to train your child’s brain.If you noticed, there are several methods to maximize potency of child’s brain (floor times, Glenn Doman, biolearning, etc). In this post, I’ll mention a little about floor time method.

Floor time is a recently developed brain stimulation method. The aims of floor time method are: to develop child’s potency, to enhance emotional closeness between parents and child, to train communication and thinking ability; and to increase child’s self confidence. In short, you can say that floor time is a playing and interactive tool, as long as 20-30 minutes, between parents and child. To interact and play can be repeated several times per day.

Several points in floor time method that parents should understand are:
  • Parents and child play interactively every day for about 30 minutes.
  • Focus completely in your child’s wants. Turn off TV and radio.
  • Follow your child’s idea; initiate comes from your child.
  • Let your child to decide what she/he wants to play/tell and how to do it (of course, the game depends on your child’s age).
  • Don’t take over to lead the game, parents should play actively as your child wants and be her/his friend. You should build interactive communication here!
  • Stimulate your child to response spontaneously; it aims to increase your child’s creativity! Try to be a connector of his/her toys. Ex: when you’re playing a frog puppet; imitate and speak like a frog.
  • In floor time method, avoid playing game boards, because the purpose is to interact creatively and spontaneously. Game boards tend to build structured interaction, not creatively.
Well parents, whatever brain stimulation method that you choose, the most important is: don’t be late to do it!

Couple’s Corner: Jealousy

>> Dec 9, 2009


Rodliz’s Nest

This post is this Wednesday’s Couple's Corner. We can learn by sharing and reading other’s experience, right? Happy reading…

Jealousy is one of our differences. I’m not a jealous person, but my
hubby can be jealous easily. Thank God, his jealousy isn’t the blind one. I really understand that his jealousy shows how much his affection to me. I’ve never assumed it as a negative thing.
But I became confused when he asked,” Why you’ve never been jealous?” Yeah, why I’ve never been jealous to him? I think it’s only my personality; because I also love and don’t want to loose my hubby. I can feel his strong love; I believe in him 100% that he’ll always keep this trust. I think it’s the answer why I’ve never been yet jealous to him…

I know that he checks my hand phone and my face book account regularly; and it isn’t a problem at all, because I’ve never hidden anything or done ‘
stupid’ things behind his back. I know that he also believes me 100%. He said,” I believe in you; I just want to protect you from others that may annoy and tempt you”.

So, actually, until now, I can enjoy his jealousy; even though he forbids me going
shopping at the mall by myself. He always says,” I don’t like you’re leaving alone; I’m afraid someone will annoy you there. Let me accompany you”. Because now he’s very busy at the restaurant, I seldom go to the mall; just shopping at nearby little stores or factory outlets.

I realize that the aim of his jealousy is to protect me. Having written this jealousy thing makes me want to hear again the song “Jealousy” (Freddy Mercury –Queen). But the lyrics don’t describe us at all, just like the melody; because I love my hubby’s jealousy, he’s my truly body guard, ha ha ha….

Poisoned Relationship (3)

>> Dec 8, 2009

It’s the last post of poisoned relationship topic.


Third condition: “I want to rule you
It’s a message that stated by a person that categorized as a ‘bossy’. Different with the ‘difficult’ person, the ‘bossy’ person used to take over all responsibilities. If this person is in your team work; she/he will ask opinion to every team member; and then suddenly she/he steps forward and admits these opinions as her/his own opinion.

It is unpleasant situation for the victims who have original opinions/ideas. But, this ‘bossy’ person is so clever to manipulate others, so, the victims can’t be protest. This person usually has the ability to influence others; therefore, she/he often becomes a leader.

The ‘bossy’ persons don’t realize that what they do make others stressful. With their charm and cleverness, they continuously pull their manipulated victims to facilitate them in achieving their own wants. They can make others look bad or ‘stupid’; and she/he is the best.
How to face the ‘bossy’ person?
  • If she/he involve in the same team work; don’t answer the questions. If the ‘bossy’ is your superior, seek a way to keep your idea safe with you.

  • Don’t pay attention if she/he tells about rumor or someone’s badness.

  • Speak out your objection straightly. Convince yourself that you’ve done the right thing.

  • If your objection doesn’t have enough attention, and her/his behavior burdens you continuously; do the detox. Stop seeing her/him or take a distance. If the bossy person is your parents or your spouse; find a reason to stay away for awhile. You need a rest!

Couple's Corner : Kiss and Make Up / Reconcile

>> Dec 4, 2009


Rodliz’s Nest


It's my first Couple's Corner. In Couple's Corner, we're sharing our stories about things that may happen in a married couple's life. Happy reading...
If many couples have lots of similarities, we don’t. My hubby and I have many differences in habits and characters; and we’ve truly known it. Before we decided to unite in a marriage, we’ve already realized that our differences can become the cause of the misunderstandings in our future relationship.

Therefore, we made commitments to prepare at first our own kiss and make up ways from every miscommunication / conflict / misunderstanding that possibly happen. Here are our ways:

  • We have our reconcilement signs. If we’re in the middle of a misunderstanding and one of us is pointing forward the bended little finger, the other isn’t allowed to reject the reconcilement invitation. This funny way can always break the ice; and it becomes a good start to communicate heart by heart.
  • Before going to bed every night, we have a habit to
forgive one another to start a brand new day tomorrow. During our seven years marriage life, because of our big differences, we’ve experienced misunderstandings several times; but all are little ones that can be solved in a short time. We’ve never keeping quiet for days; because we must ask for apologize every night! So, this way really works for us…

Poisoned Relationship (2)

In the first post of this poisoned relationship topic, I’ve mentioned the first condition that can happen in an unhealthy relationship. Today I’ll step forward to the second condition. Remember again the big point: Stop Being a Victim! You must take the right step to get out of a poisoned relationship.

Second condition: “You all must be responsible for my happiness
It’s a message that stated by a person that categorized as a ‘complainer’. Though it doesn’t straightly stated, this negative thinker often blames others; but rejecting to be responsible and do the self-change. They tend to generalize all cases as negative things.

Consorting with the complainer is so tiring; they suck your positive energy! Little problems can become big ones that he/she feels need to be complained. You, who listen to all complaints will feel ought to make this person happy, as the time goes by, every
time you hear the complaint, you will feel the increasing burden that you must receive.

The complainer may look weak, but like the intimidator at the first condition, this person has the power to manipulate other’s feeling. They use ‘their weakness’ to force others to do what they want and need.

How to face the complainer? Here is the practical guidance for you:
  • If the complainer always annoys you; stop being a victim by ignoring all complaints. Tell the complainer that the problem will be solved if he/she has a will to change.
  • Tell the complainer that
happiness doesn’t depend on anybody. To be happy or not is her/his own choice.

  • Even though you feel sorry for him/her, ignore the complainer for awhile. Praise him/her if the complainer has tried to fix the condition by his/her own effort.

    Saving Money on Buying Baby Diapers and Training Pants

    >> Dec 3, 2009

    Having a baby is the most wonderful gift from God; but it can take lots of money to care a baby. New born baby basic needs including these three kinds: clothing and layette, diapers and bath items, bedding and feeding needs.

    For parents,
    baby diapers and training pants are large expenses; and the cost can still increase continuously. Before the baby has ready for potty training, most parents use disposable diapers. Disposable diapers are probably the easiest diapering method; that’s why it’s most popular parents’ choice. There is no washing or storing of used diapers and they are available in many stores.

    Like mentioned before, the problem in using disposable diapers are its high cost. Assuming that the average baby will use 8 disposable diapers per day for around 2.5 years, that's more than 7,000 disposable diapers used before your baby potty trains. Wow, imagine how much the total cost!

    Don’t worry parents; I have a proper solution here. It’s the smart buying that you can do: buy baby diapers and training pants online at Sam’s Club! You can get it at far less prices; and moreover, you can save lots of money by buying it in bulk. They provide the top brands of disposable diapers and training pants like
    Huggies and Pampers in a wide range of sizes and styles. They also deliver it to your home directly. Buying baby and infant needs at Sam’s Club will give you lots of benefit!

    Dunstan Baby Language : does It Work for Your Baby?

    Until now I’m still curious with Dunstan Baby Language. There’s a controversy over it, so, I want to prove it with my own baby. But since I still haven’t one, I just keep my curiosity. I knew Dunstan Baby Language for the first time in Oprah Winfrey Show several years ago; at that time Priscilla Dunstan stated her hypothesis. I remembered that she made a demonstration to some babies; and her system seemed working successfully. Everyone there were astonished, including Oprah (and me).


    Dunstan Baby Language products were sold well at that time. But then, it turned out that there were many complaints refered to Dunstan system. Many parents mentioned that Dunstan Baby Language didn’t work to their babies. Why was it still called hypothesis? Because Dunstan Baby Language hasn’t been scientifically validated (until now?).

    For you that has forgotten with or still hasn’t yet known this Dunstan hypothesis, I’ll mention here a brief of it that I quote from wikipedia.

    Dunstan's claims
    Between 0-3 months, infants make what Dunstan calls sound reflexes. According to Dunstan, the five universal words (or sound reflexes) used by infants are:

    1. Neh
    I'm hungry
    - An infant uses the sound reflex "Neh" to communicate its hunger. The sound is produced when the sucking reflex is triggered, and the tongue is pushed up on the roof of the mouth.

    2. Owh
    I'm sleepy -
    An infant uses the sound reflex "Owh" to communicate that they are tired. The sound is produced much like an audible yawn.

    3. Heh
    I'm experiencing discomfort
    - An infant uses the sound reflex "Heh" to communicate stress, discomfort, or perhaps that it needs a fresh diaper. The sound is produced by a response to a skin reflex, such as feeling sweat or itchiness in the bum.

    4. Eairh
    I have lower gas
    - An infant uses the sound reflex "Eairh" to communicate they have flatulence or an upset stomach. The sound is produced when trapped air from a belch that is unable to release and travels to the stomach where the muscles of the intestine tighten to force the air bubble out. Often, this sound will indicate that a bowel movement is in progress, and the infant will bend its knees, bringing the legs toward the torso. This leg movement assists in the ongoing process.

    5. Eh
    I have gas
    - An infant uses the sound reflex "Eh" to communicate that it needs to be burped. The sound is produced when a large bubble of trapped air is caught in the chest, and the reflex is trying to release this out of the mouth.

    It’s a natural way for every baby to express their physical needs. These are the baby’s first communications, which occur before actual crying develops. Ex : the sooner the ‘word’ for hunger is identified, the sooner a parent can respond by feeding. It’s resulting in less crying and less discomfort for the baby and the parents…

    If you’re still interested, I share the download link of Dunstan Baby Language DVD.
    The Dunstan System will teach you how to tune your ear to the 5 ‘words’. You will also view Priscilla Dunstan in a ‘live lesson’.

    To everyone that has ever experienced with Dunstan System; I hope you can help me to answer my question, “Does Dunstan Baby Language Work for Your Baby?”

    A Cute Tag (3)

    >> Dec 2, 2009

    Today I post a tag again. Imelda has given me this tag at November 20th. The tag is a quiz: What does Your Sleeping Position Say about You? Well, I’ve just tried the quiz; because I sleep on my back, here is the result:




    • Your Sleeping Position Says: You Need Adventure
    • You are confident and ready to tackle life.
    • You are pretty vain and happy with your physical appearance.
    • You are born to be the center of attention, and you're unhappy on the sidelines.
    • You're always up for trying something new - in and out of bed!
    • If you don't get enough sleep, you: Look like hell
    • It's hard to sleep next to you because: You toss and turn all night
    If you’re interested to try this quiz, please visit what does Your Sleeping Position Say about You?

    My comments about the result:
    Hhmm, it’s a pity that I have to say that the result doesn’t describe me.
    I think it’s only two statements that are right things about me. Well, a quiz like this is just for fun, right?
    My
    hubby said I sleep calmly like a baby; I don’t toss and turn all night.
    To be the center of attention? I don’t think so, I’m too shy for that!

    Sobat Muslim, posisi tidur yang paling benar dan paling sehat (menurut sains) tentunya adalah posisi tidur sesuai tuntunan Rasullah Muhammad SAW : posisi tidur berbaring di atas sisi tubuh sebelah kanan (rusuk kanan sebagai tumpuan) dan berbantal dengan tangan kanan. Usahakan agar dalam posisi tidur, kepala menghadap ke utara dan kaki mengarah ke selatan. Maksudnya supaya tubuh tidak menolak arus/medan magnet konstan yang mengaliri sekujur tubuh dari kutub magnetik utara menuju ke selatan, sehingga bisa terhubung lancar ke sistem saraf tubuh.

    Saya sudah berusaha merubah posisi tidur saya berulang kali (sekarang bertumpu pada punggung atau telentang), tetapi belum pernah berhasil. Belum sampai 15
    menit, tangan kanan saya sudah kesemutan… Ada yang bisa beri saran? Terima kasih sebelumnya!

    Child Can be Funny!

    Another short and light post here. I hope you can enjoy reading it; with a little smile, maybe?


    This is my true story. Hana, my nephew, is a smart young girl. She’s at her second year at primary school now. She likes playing riddle. It happened when I and my hubby visited her house two weeks ago.
    “Auntie, what’s the similarity between Pangeran Diponegoro and Jendral Sudirman?”
    Because both are Indonesia’s national patriots, I said,
    “Hana, the same thing with both of them is they are our national patriots…”
    “No, it’s wrong answer”
    After several other wrong answers, I gave up.
    And then she said calmly,” The right answer is, they are both don’t have facebook accounts, Auntie…”
    I was surprised by her answer. Child nowadays…

    My daughter, Shaqira, has just been 2.5 years old when I introduced her to children games at computer. At that time, I was downloading a new game from internet.
    “Mom, why hasn’t yet the game come out? Why is it so long?”
    “Be patient, dear. It’s still loading…” I said that while pointing my finger at loading sign at computer.
    Not long after that, Shaqira asked me to lead her to the toilet because she wanted to loosen the bowels.
    She sat down at the closet and I stood beside her.
    After several minutes passed away; she’s still quiet.
    I asked, “Shaq, why hasn’t yet it come out?”
    “Be patient, Mom. It’s still loading…”

    The Best Fashion and Fine Jewelry for You

    Most people, women and men, love wearing accessories to enhance their appearance. Having neat and excellent performance can boost someone’s self confidence, right? In this case, jewelry is still one of women’s favorite accessories. But nowadays, many men also wear it because there are already available various specially designed men jewelries.
    Wearing appropriate jewelry will make a woman look elegant and dazzling. To avoid looking like a walking jewelry store, follow these principles:”earring and bracelet” or “necklace and ring”. Don’t wear more than two rings at a time, it’s so excessive.


    I also love jewelry, but I prefer fashion jewelry to fine jewelry. What’s the difference between them? You can put on fashion jewelry with your latest dresses, go out in town wearing it, and you can also mix it with the most recent designer thing in your collection. Fine jewelry is that you reserve for formal occasions like weddings and fine dining occasions.

    Should you buy both fashion and fine jewelry? No, you shouldn’t (I was glad when I knew this). I share you a solution: buy silver jewelry! Silver jewelry is both fashion jewelry and fine jewelry. It sounds so good, right? It is one of the rare jewelry that will go with anything you wear and look good on any occasion and on any person.

    Are you already interested in buying silver jewelry now? I invite you to see all Links of London Jewelry collection. Why I mention Links of London is one of the best fashion and fine jewelry for you? Their men and women jewelries’ designs are awesome! They offer mix jewelry in sterling silver and 18 carat gold. I’m so sure that you’ll be amazed with all various gorgeous links of London designs like I do; and they always have something exciting and new to offer!

You can find and choose charms, bracelets, necklaces, chains, rings, earrings that you most like and you can get it at the possible lowest prices.
