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.
