Treen & Tri tie the knot!

OK.. so this technically didn’t happen ‘in’ Jakarta.. but it’s all thanks to Jakarta that December held an extra super special occasion for us… Treen and Tri got married – YIPPPPPEEEEEE!!

Who would have thought back when we started this blog in 2010, still struggling to find our way through this city and with the language barrier and hysterically funny daily interactions, that we would be here all these years later… with marriages and babies tying us to Indonesia forever!

I was so happy that Samudra and I were able to fly over to Melbourne for a super quick surprise visit to attend this awesome day as it was so lovely to see Treen so radiant and the two of them so happy together, and to see all our family too.

I wish Treen and Tri every happiness in the world in this new chapter of their togetherness and am so looking forward to expanding families here in Jakarta!

As always, Jakarta remains completely surprising so be careful what you wish for when you come here.. your dreams just may come true…

The Circus of Dreams

Last year I was fortunate to learn about and attend the 7th Annual Community Circus of the Red Nose Foundation, or Yayasan Hidung Merah, which is a fantastic non-profit arts and education outreach organisation based in Jakarta. All the students of the foundation reside in the slum areas of Cilincing, North Jakarta, or Jurangmangu Timur, South Tangerang.

The foundation aims to raise the children’s confidence to follow their dreams and feel that anything is possible, by not only conducting free circus classes for them, but also assisting them with maths, science, reading and English studies.

As I have had an article published about the event in Indonesia Expat Magazine (indonesiaexpat.biz/issue 131), I thought I would share an interview with Isabella here, a volunteer from Italy, temporarily training and teaching with the circus.

Juggling circus_red nose circus_Yayasan Hidung Merah_Red Nose Foundation_Indonesia_tasha may_we love jakarta_welovejakarta.com_Circus kids in Indonesia_

The lovely Isabella

1. How old are you and where in Italy do you come from?
I am 19 years old. I come from a small city near Venice called Padova.

2. Are you studying to perform/teach in Italy?
I actually now live in the United States. I perform and teach at a circus gym called MSA, which is where I also train. This past year I started training in more of the circus activities that are not main focus of training, which is acro (acrobatics). Now I am training in juggling, silks, and trapeze, as well as acro.

3. How did you first hear about the Hidung Merah group? What motivated you to travel to Jakarta to teach and perform with them?
I first heard about the Hidung Merah group when Whawhan was in Chicago last year for a month. He was training at my gym and with all the time we spent together either inside or outside of the gym, I got to know more about him and Hidung Merah. I saw short videos of Cilincing, one of the villages Hidung Merah, as well as some videos of Hidung Merah at its beginning. I travelled to Jakarta in November 2013, as a birthday gift, to visit Whawhan. While in Jakarta back in 2013, I spent a day in Cilincing and seeing the kids practicing and trying to communicate with me made me want to come back to help them. With this said, seeing the kids at work is what really motivated me to travel to Jakarta to teach and perform with them. They are a very talented group of kids that does not complain about messing up when they do. They keep working in order to make great acts for any shows they may have through out the year. Being involved with this way of working for even just a day is what really showed me that I, coming from a part of the world where there is a lot of complaining, should give back to a part of the world that is a bit different from where I live.

4. Why do you think it is so important to have this foundation in Indonesia?
I think it is so important to have this foundation in Indonesia because it helps the kids who are part of this organization to learn new activities. Not only does it help the kids learn new activities but it also helps them with school subjects like science, math, reading, and English. During classes they are involved in circus activities as well as science projects, and shows. At the same time, they have the opportunity to work on their English when there is a volunteer. At the same time, they have the chance to work with volunteers who come from other countries. When they perform, they inspire their communities, which is something that cannot be done if a foundation like this would not be around. It is always nice to see the smiles on everybody’s faces.

5. What is the most important lesson you have learnt by being a member of the group?
The most important lesson I have learned is to never give up because it is ok to mess up. You never get really good at something on the first try. I used to give up really easily but after spending 6 weeks here, I started being motivated to just keep practicing because that is what makes you get to being really good. This was an important lesson for me because I was used to giving up all the time without thinking about it. Now, I always think before giving up or complaining. I am thankful about this new lesson I have learned because it has turned me into a better person.

Keep your eyes out for events involving this foundation as they are great to watch, and better still, if you would like to donate towards the future of these children, you can find further information at http://rednosefoundation.org/

Zoe Turns 1!

This was a very special occasion that I couldn’t let slip by although it was quite some time ago now. As beautiful little Zoe was turning 1, her parents wanted to celebrate by giving back to those less fortunate, as Zoe has been blessed with good health and love since the day she arrived into the world. What better way to celebrate than to share her day with orphans at Panti Asuhan Tunas Bangsa in Cipayung.

I have only ever visited Lestari Sayang Anak Orphanage in Cipete since being in Jakarta, and this was a completely different experience for me. Instead of a small building with a family atmosphere, this orphanage was quite big and over several levels and there were so many children running around everywhere. Little Samudra was a little overwhelmed with all the noise of children on a sugar high blowing party horns and running around, trying to pick him up and push him around. There was a cake and treats for the children and also a meal of rice and soup for them too.

Thanks to the generosity of all those that donated for Zoe’s birthday, her gorgeous parents bought so many goods that were needed at the orphanage for all the kids and there were also donations of clothes and toys.

I was so happy that we were able to attend and my heart completely melted then broke watching all the little babies in a room which we were not allowed to enter, only view from the windows. I watched as they cried and the carers came and turned them over and put them down again and I just wanted to hug them all so they know they are loved. Of course all of the mum’s standing at the window walked away in tears. I can only hope they find someone to love them and take them home soon.

Thanks to Cara and Eli for giving your little girl such a selfless and happy birthday gift.

If anyone can help or is able to go and visit the children you should do it! Give a cuddle or anything you can, I’m sure it all makes a huge difference to all those beautiful little ones living there.

Last Yummy Mummy Play Date for 2014

I want to say a HUGE thank you to the lovely mum’s and babes in this group who helped to make 2014 so special for us… especially to Sarah for hosting at her house every week (so many toys! every kids dream…). Although we had to miss many of the Monday morning catch-up’s, those we could attend were always fun and it was lovely to start the week with so many smiling happy faces (and sometimes tears), singing, morning tea, playing, and mummy chats.

We look forward to making lots more memories in 2015 and to welcoming new friends along the way to sing and laugh with.

Thanks Yummy Mummy’s and your beautiful bubba’s. xox

Hello Jakarta 2015!

Happy New Year 2015_Jakarta_tasha may_we love jakarta_welovejakarta_kids in jakarta_holidays

Our beautiful little Santa

Hello Jakarta!

It’s now one week in at 7th January so I’m a little late with my message but here’s wishing everyone a HAPPY NEW YEAR! I hope for you all is that 2015 is filled with love, laughter, adventures, sprinkles of magic and all your dreams coming to fruition..

The last few months of last year were absolutely crazy busy and fun with unexpected and spontaneous travels (more on that in posts to come), a wedding and visit to family and so as usual this blog got neglected and I have a big backlog of photos but now it’s the new year I am thinking I will have to archive many stories so we can start afresh.. in saying that, I will sneak in some pics of a couple of last special occasions for 2014 before we get stuck into this one!

Looking back, last year seemed to go on forever and in mind was one of the longest years in memory as every year seems to fly by before my eyes the older I get.. It was an absolute joy walking the streets with Samudra in the pram earlier in the year and ending with him walking the streets with me.. It was a year filled with both tears and love looking after a little one but mostly incredibly special.

I hope everyone had a chance to have a break and is feeling refreshed and ready to take on this new year, and for those that have suffered, that this year sheds some healing light on you.

I look forward to more adventures and sharing our journeys with you, and also hearing what you all get up to.

Bring on 2015 in Jakarta!

A sunny Sunday morning…

Well this ended up being a spontaneous outing for me and little Samudra and we ended up having lots of fun together exploring the zoo and meeting people. I had been planning to go and cover The Color Run this morning as I had been given a media invitation, but after waiting 40 minutes for a taxi that never turned up and appeared to be lost when I checked the tracking on my taxi app, I decided to change my plan.

Time kept ticking on and I was torn whether to venture over to Taman Suropati for Samudra to play on the grass or just walk around the complex as it was already 8.00am and from this time onwards Jakarta sunshine starts getting too hot. I decided I was too lazy to go to Menteng so would just walk around the complex, but as I was walking I changed my mind (eeek!) and decided to go have some fun with my little ray of sunshine. We left the pram at the security entrance to the complex and walked out to find a taxi – it’s impossible to push a pram outside the gates as there is no footpath and too much traffic.. so we jumped in the first cab we saw and headed up to the zoo. It was so packed by the time we got there with huge groups of kids (scouts, athletics club kids, etc) and everyone wanted to take photos of the ‘bule baby’. Samudra was more interested in walking around looking at the animals or his shoes and making new little friends than stopping for so many photos. He got pecked by the peacock sticking his fingers in the wire and instead of crying, he started laughing and dancing around and wanted more!

We watched the baby elephants splashing around, the orangutans covering their heads with huge leaves and a black bear chasing a huge lizard with a dead mouse in its mouth (yuck!).

It was a fun mini adventure and great way to start a lazy Sunday.

I hope you had a fun weekend wherever in the world you are too.

Hellofest Anima Expo

It’s so difficult to find time for our little family to hang out these days as Putra is so busy with work 7 days a week, so it was a treat that we could spend yesterday together at Hellofest Anima Expo in Senayan.

I wasn’t sure what to expect, but as soon as we entered through the gates, I imagined this is what it must be like in Harajuku, Japan, with all the quirky characters posing for photos in crazy costumes. The place was swarming with cosplayers, cameras and lots of colour.. and boy was it steaming hot! Jakarta is always super sweltering before rain in this wet season. There were booths set up in tents selling costumes, comics, toys and novelty goods but it was far too hot to stop and browse while trying to push through the crowds. Who knew this scene was so huge in Jakarta? There was also another huge anime festival on this weekend so I imagine that would have been crowded also.

We watched people drawing cartoons and their favourite anime characters and posed for lots of photos with the young crowd, before the heat became unbearable and it was time to move on.

Fun days and so loved to hang out with my favourite two boys for family time.

Hope you had a fun Saturday too.

Back to Play Dates..

Yesterday was the first Monday in what feels like months, that I was actually free to catch up again with the Yummy Mummies Playgroup in Senayan. It’s been a little hectic for everyone the past few weeks and there’s always Whatsapp messages making and rescheduling plans and I feel sad every time we miss out on a gathering… so there was no way I was going to miss this Monday as it’s been ages that Samudra has seen his little friends and I have caught up with the beautiful mum’s.

It took just under two hours in the crazy traffic to get there, in which time Samudra was bored sitting in a taxi that wasn’t moving and proceeded to scream “mummmmmmaaaaaaaaaaa!” at the top of his lungs and laughing while tipping biscuits over the seat and floor and crushing them to pieces. Eeeeeeeek!. Since he has been able to walk he has become super cheeky. Very very funny. But cheeky. I love him to pieces.

So a few of our friends weren’t able to make it to playgroup but it was so lovely to see little Milady, Zoe, Leighton and Carlton again and see just how much each has grown since we last saw them. We sang songs, ate vegemite sandwiches and fruit salad, and then watched out the windows as the rain came pelting down just as we were about to finish up. I couldn’t help but laugh at Zoe’s affections towards Samudra and managed to capture her going in for one of her cuddles with him. They are so cute playing together but Samudra is not sure about the cuddling part! hahaha

Looking forward to the next instalment of play time and catching up with more of our little friends again next week.

Jakarta Fashion Week 2015 – Day 2 : Grazia Glitz & Glam

This was the show I was most looking forward to today and it was full of  high energy fun and collaborations between different Indonesian designers.  Iwet Ramadhan came jumping and dancing down the catwalk at the end of his collection and I thought he was about to burst with happiness!

Daniel Mananta and Nowela’s showcase was great, with drummers on the side of the catwalk, singing and ending with photos of all the photographers and then a big group selfie shot on the end of the runway before exiting. It was a great way to end my second day at Fashion Week as I had to leave after this show, and I definately left on a high note.

Here’s hoping I can make it to another show before it ends on Friday.. if not, I met some lovely people there and had a chance to catch up with old friends and had a nice break of ‘me’ time which I never have any more so it was all worth it.

Wishing all the designers success and thanks to Femina for another great event.

Jakarta Fashion Week 2015 – Day 2

Day 2 of JFW and Putra packed up Samudra and some bathers and headed to PIM for lunch and a swim with Samudra and all the family, and I packed my camera and caught a taxi back to Senayan City for more shows in the afternoon.

Again, I will only show a few photos to summarise my afternoon, as the process to sort and edit hundreds of photos when you have a small child is a very arduous process as you get interrupted so often for cuddles and play time.

These photos are from ‘Colour of The Year 2015 by Dulux’ and ‘Esmod Jakarta’ shows, which I really enjoyed.  It’s always great to see young creative talent getting noticed and there were so many pieces I am dreaming of owning!
