Couple’s Corner: We’re the Best of Friends

>> Apr 29, 2010

Can I call my hubby is my best friend? Hmmm, let’s see… Does he fulfill the criteria as a best friend?

No matter what I do, my hubby will always give me his support. Whatever you need, a best friend will have your back and he’ll stick through the tough times with you.

Best friend are one that can be trusted. You know that whatever you share with him – it is in good hands. There are no secrets between me and my
hubby; we can share stories about everything, including our past life…

When the time is right and I have news to share, he gives me his full attention. Advice from him does not come without first knowing what I’m asking for. He always hears, listens and understands what I’m asking.

Feeling down or blue, a
best friend will likely know how to lift your spirits and make your day. A best friend will have a way of helping you see through your stress and pain and discover the smiles waiting on the other side. Oh, yes, I can count on him to make me laugh and see the bright side of things.

There’s no doubt, my hubby is my best friend. As mentioned by Liz, marrying and loving our husbands and being their best friend is the greatest thing that can ever happen to us, married couples. I feel so grateful!

It’s my story, what about you? Visit CC to know other’s stories…

CC : Our Days at Work

>> Apr 22, 2010


According to Liz, the meaning of this topic is: When we are with our husbands, do we talk about what happened to our day? I’ m a stay at home wife and my husband works at a small restaurant that belongs to my brother in-law. His family is very close each other and they are running some businesses.

I don’t meet my husband every day. The restaurant is close at 11pm every night; and it takes about one hour on the way back home. It will be very exhausted if he has to do it every day; so he spends the night at the restaurant and comes home every three days.

I’m a kind of wife that doesn’t want to bother my husband with my domestic problems. When he is at his work place; I’ve just sent him messages -questioning his condition that day- by cell phone. We are talking by phone only if he calls me first; usually after midnight; before going to sleep. I’ve never told my problems; unless he asks me earlier. I know he’s already tired; so I don’t want to burden him.

The same thing happen when he goes back home. We’re just talking about our days if he starts it first. Actually, he always asks my opinion before making any decision or if he faces some trouble at work; even if they (my husband with my in-laws) are close, the conflicts are still possibly happen!

If the time is right; we can talk almost everything about our days. There’s no secret between us. Well, it’s my story. Don’t hesitate to visit CC if you want to read other’s stories.

Is Your Child Afraid to Sleep?

>> Apr 20, 2010

Dear parents, is your child facing problems to sleep? It can make you dizzy, right? Don’t worry, this time I’ll share the ways to handle your child’s problems. In her article, Teri Cettina wrote about seven problems that can occur to your child while going to bed. Hope it can give you more useful knowledge. Here they are:

1.Problem: Your child gets up repeatedly after you've put her/him to bed, calling, “Mom/Dad, I need a glass of water.”

Why it happens
: Kids make bedtime curtain calls for many reasons. Preschoolers may be asserting their independence: “You can't make me stay in bed!” Or they stall because they're afraid of the dark. The most common reason, though, is that you've slipped from a consistent routine you had when they were babies.



How to rest easy: Before-bed routines are important for children of all ages, says Lynn D'Andrea, M.D., director of the Pediatric Sleep Disorders Center at the Children's Hospital of Wisconsin, in Wauwatosa.

The evening ritual could be as simple as reading your child a story and wishing him a good night. Another tool is a bedtime pass, a card your child can turn in for one nighttime request. Preschoolers also benefit from rewards (like extra playground time) for staying put.

2. Problem: Your child is scared―of the monsters or even a house fire.
Why it happens: As kids wind down, it's normal for anxieties to surface. Your preschooler is easy to worry about what lurks in the shadows, while an older child may have relatively realistic fears―of robbers, for instance.

How to rest easy: A night-light to chase away dark and a few squirts of anti-monster spray (tap water in a specially marked bottle) are often enough to settle down a young one. Jodi Mindell, Ph.D., an associate director of the Children's Hospital of Philadelphia Sleep Center, said that imaginary fears can be handled well by imaginary solutions.

If an older child is a worrier, ban scary movies and books at night. If he/she worries about intruders or natural disasters, chat with him/her about these issues well before bedtime. For example, you can ask, “What would you do if we had a fire?” Having an escape plan for an emergency could also help your child relax.

3. Problem: Your child can’t fall asleep, and then it takes a marching band to wake him/her up in the morning (hahaha).

Why it happens: Kids can have insomnia for any number of reasons, from drinking caffeinated drinks at night to schoolwork anxiety.

How to rest easy: Revisit the basics. Make sure your child has a bedtime routine. If you notice that he/she can’t fall asleep until late (say, after midnight) and sleeps in when allowed to sleep on his/her own schedule, he/she may have delayed sleep-phase syndrome, which is more common in teens (stated by Judith Owens, M.D., director of the Pediatric Sleep Disorders Clinic).

This can be tough on both your child and family members who are on more traditional schedules, so ask your doctor for a referral to a sleep specialist. Professionals can help shift your child’s sleep time closer to normal.

Other tips:

  • Have your child avoid screen time (like the TV and the computer) for at least half an hour before bed.

  • Turn down the lights to help his/her body prepare for sleep. Come morning, open the drapes and turn on the lights.

  • Make sure he/she gets up at a consistent time (although an hour later on weekends is OK) so your child will be tired at the same time each night.
I still have four other problems. I’ll mention it in my next post. See you…

CC : When We Watch Movies Together

>> Apr 15, 2010


Watching movies together can become very enjoyable activities for couples. For me, it’s also a good way to ease stress. We seldom go to the cinema for watching movies together; the last movie that we saw was 2012. Most often we rent or buy DVD and watch it in our bed room; or just watch movies that shown on television.

We like watching movies; but we have different preference. I like animation, fantasy and sci-fi movies; but hubby less like it. When I saw Harry Potter or Star Wars, he said,”It’s too impossible!” Of course it’s impossible; but it’s very interesting…

I’m so glad that hubby doesn’t like bloody and horror movies (makes me can't sleep). That kind of movies that I avoid to watch! Movies that we can watch together are action, suspense, and comedy. He is a huge fan of Steven Seagal movies; but I’m not. I like his Aikido moves; but for me, he isn’t a good actor. His face looks always the same, whether he acts for sad, happy or angry scene. But we love Jet Li and Jacky Chan movies; we always watch all their movies together; so fun…

While watching movies; hubby often annoys me with questions. He can’t read the subtitle fast; so he misses it often. Sometimes I have to read aloud the subtitle for him….pheww….

Have you watched Prison Break the series? We are addicted to Prison Break! It’s the only one movie series that we adore together. I actually also want to collect Heroes the series; but he doesn’t like it. Perhaps I’ll buy it later and watch it alone.

Watching movies with our spouse should be a fun activity that makes you closer each other. My advice, pick only movies that you can enjoy together; unless you want to sacrifice, hahaha.

My Money or Our Money?

>> Apr 12, 2010

I guess every married couple has different way to handle finance. Whether they combine or separate their finance. They can do whatever; since they feel that it’s right and most suit for them.

I won’t mention here what experts said about this. But for me, since I got married, there’s no more ‘me’, there is only us. I think as a team now. So, there’s no such thing like ‘my money’ for us…

We prefer to combine our earnings; and then divide it into several posts, including posts of our personal needs. If we want to buy ‘fun’ stuff, it should be kept within reason and not hidden. What about you?

CC : Our Favorite Places

>> Apr 8, 2010


Dullness is a real marriage-buster. So, it’s still important for us, married couples, to go out once in a while and spend times together. Especially now I don’t meet my hubby everyday. Every time he’s at home, he always asks me going out, at least once in two weeks. We love to eat, when we’re going out, most of the times are going to eating places.

For Indonesian food, we often visit Ayam Geprek Restaurant, which located near with our home. All food’s taste are great, especially ayam geprek -its traditional fried chicken- is so tender and tasty. Yummy… Moreover, the prices are so affordable! Sometimes we have to wait for a while if the restaurant is too full…

Hoka Hoka Bento is our choice if we’re interested in Japanese food. Our favorite food is Beef/Chicken Yakiniku. I think Hoka Hoka Bento is a cozy place; I like its taste and price.

Waroeng Steak and Shake is the place we visit for eating affordable but still yummy steak. We have our favorite spot there, at its open area. We prefer to visit there at night. It’s so nice to have steak for dinner in romantic atmosphere.

Sometimes we just go to the park in our neighborhood and eat our also favorite food –chicken noodles- at a little canteen by the park. It’s enjoyable, too…


We seldom go to the cinema to watch movies; we prefer to buy and watch it at home, in our bedroom. The mall that we most often visit is Botani Square; at least once in a month; to buy monthly needs at Giant hypermarket and do window shopping.


There are our favorite places in my city, Bogor, Indonesia. Visit CC to read other couple’s stories. Have a nice day, every one…

Bogor Katulampa Dam

>> Apr 7, 2010


Katulampa Dam located in Bogor, West Java, Indonesia. Built in 1911; the dam becomes so crucial in rainy season; because it controls the flood (from Ciliwung River) that comes to Jakarta (capital city of Indonesia). The dam starts its alert condition since the water level is above normal height (80 cm). If the water level continues high, it can be predicted that the flood will arrive at Jakarta in eight hours ahead. For Watery Wednesday, I share pictures of Katulampa Dam that I captured weeks ago.
