Project Life 2013 ~ Title Page

Wednesday, March 27, 2013

Yes, I joined the wagon!!! I'm doing 2013 Project Life. I'm so very excited about this. 

I know that I'm way behind this year, but I promised myself that I will catch up and I really want to do this.
I also figure that since we started a new adventure in Indonesia...I need to capture all the details I can get.

However, there are some challenges I found at first.
1. Being away from the US means I have to adjust myself with the scrapbook supplies I have. There are not that many scrapbooking stores in town.
2. Printing the photos isn't as comfortable as it used to be. I MISS Walgreens online ordering!
But after weeks of learning and accepting the reality...I now can move on.

So without further ado, here's my 2013 Project Life Title Page.

I'm doing a hybrid Project Life system, half papers and half digital printable.

On this page, I decided to put the map of Indonesia, the photo of the house that we currently live in, and of course the newest family picture.

Now, some close up pictures of the 4x6 cards I made.

I'm loving this so far..and I really can't wait to finish up some more pages. 

Until then scrappers.

Finding A Home

Monday, March 25, 2013
Hi everyone,
Life has been busy, but I haven't forgotten this blog.
I'm going to share with you all my new journey and new life in Indonesia, and I will start today.

After we decided to go back to Indonesia, my husband and I had this conversation, about where we're going to live. We both agree that we should live in Bali.

Three weeks after we arrived in Indonesia, our family finally made a trip to Bali. We were so excited and couldnt wait to see what Bali has to offer.

Bali is BEAUTIFUL. Bali is crowded. Bali is just GORGEOUS!!!
We looked for houses that we could rent or possibly buy. We looked for jobs. We looked for business opportunity. We spent most days on the road, and most sunsets on the beach.

The kids had the greatest moment playing at the beach. They LOVE it!!!

After 5 days searching, we didn't find what we're looking for.
Bali is a bit expensive for our budget, and I, personally had a strange feeling about the place {silly me}.
Bali is also known as the Island of Gods {literally}, and I guess that's probably why I don't like it anymore.

We left Bali and went back to Surabaya, where my folks live.
They offered us to live with them for awhile {or until we figure out the housing issue}. We took the offer right away, because Surabaya is a metropolitan city and also the second largest city in Indonesia = More Opportunity.

So, now...we all live with my parents.

My parents live right in the heart of downtown Surabaya. We live in a shophouse {that's what they call it here}, it's a building for business and also a residency at the same time. Our home is close to malls, city hall, governor's office, traditional market, and other business places. It's so strategic but very noisy and busy.
But for now...we're enjoying it.

Although...we haven't yet found a house for ourselves, but we've already called this place as our {temporary} home, thanks to my parents.

Here's the picture of the building we live in now...

What a change our family has to experience...but we're enjoying the journey.

Well, that's all for now. I will be back again with the new adventure story.
Thanks for stopping by.
