About Me

I am an Indonesian-Chinese female (not a girl, not yet a woman) who grew up in Singapore, and travelled around the world for my studies.

My educational trip alone had brought me to Singapore (obviously), Germany-France-Italy-Netherlands (Europe), Ningbo-Hangzhou-Guangzhou-Shanghai (China), Wollongong-Sydney-Canberra-Gold Coast (Australia).

My goals for 2018 is to travel to all major cities of Indonesia. So far I have only been to Bali, Bandung, Banjarmasin, Belitung, Jakarta (where i reside) Medan, Pontianak, Semarang, Solo, Surabaya, & Yogyakarta.

My favourite flowers are Peony/-ies and Tulips. Fave colours are Black-Pink together, or red by itself

I don't like snakes. Please don't send me pictures of realistic snakes. I don't mind abstract which is just a swiggly line or blured colours. I can withstand a cartoon snake. NO REAL SNAKES, please. 😨😢

My Pets

I have 2 RES (Red Eared Slider) and they love to escape their outdoor habitat to dip into my swimming pool, or the gutter right in front of my house.

Have been trying more ways to increase the "security" of their gated outdoor habitat, but every year, they find a loophole.

I have had them since they were a tiny little thing. I initially bought 5 of them, but only 2 survived after the first year or so. And now, they will be 5 years old this September 2018.

And my baby Peter (RIP), an applehead chihuahua

Profile Swap: Things that make you happy.

  1. Art – Art is almost (after family) everything to me. Art is expression, it is my freedom. You can always show feelings with your art or understand other’s feeling. I just love to go o the gallery and stare at a piece of art and wonder what the artist was thinking.
  2. Flower/Gardens – Taking care of flowers is my second passion. I just love when some of my balcony flowers have new seed, so I can replicate them. And when the new seed grow into a healthy flower I’m the happiest person in the world.
  3. Cats – I love cats with all my heart. I’ve heard a legend from Egypt where the cats have ruled the world and we were their slaves. Fun legend, but I love cats because they’re independent, they don’t annoy you for attention, and their meowing and paws are the cutest.
  4. Book – After creating art, comes book. I love books, for what is hidden inside of them. I can always get inspiration from a book and create anything new after that.
  5. Cooking – Mostly for myself but I love trying new recipes. It is a fun adventure, that I always go by myself so I can learn what is right and what is wrong.
  6. The sea – I go to the sea once or twice a year, and every time I go there it is like a new experience. Like I’ve never been on a sand or inside the salty sea. I love the smell in the air and all the laughter and happiness you can see around the beach
  7. Cosplaying – every time I start a cosplay I don’t finish it on time due need of money. But boy when I finish a cosplay I just go around and show my creation to everybody. I tell everyone and I’m so so so happy I did something new in this world with my two hands.
  8. Travelling – this is something I Loved even when I was a little girl. I always travelled with my parents, not because they don’t want to leave me alone at the house, but because I wanted to see everything. Nowadays I don’t have the time to travel with them on their exotic trips, but I still do some cheap budget trips with my boyfriend, and the minute I got inside the train I’m happy like a little kid
  9. Something inside my mailbox – this feeling Is a bit new for me, but after I got introduced to it, there isn’t a day that I don’t look over my mailbox and expect something inside. After I receive something I just stare at it happily for days.
  10. My friends – meeting with my friends or just talking to them makes me happy. I just love talking to them for everything and sharing always make me a little bit happier. Or when they need me

Have a wonderful day Rosi

Profile Swap: Things that make you happy.

1: Swap-bot: Without it I would have no outside contact as I do not socialize with my neighbours and my family is always busy

2: Roses: partially because my first husband called me Gypsy Rose and I think it describes me well but mainly because they were my dads passion

3: Reading: I read things that take me to other places and times, it appeals to my imagination

4: Yellow: It is the brightest and happiest colour I know and the sight of it always gives my spirit a lift.

5: Lilacs: When I see its purple and white flowers I know that winter is finally over.

6: My Computer: It is where I start and end my days, it holds images to trigger my creative juices and words to keep my brain active and sounds that can soothe or get me moving

7: My grandchildren: Their energy always rubs off on me and makes me more active than I would be otherwise and their laughter brightens any day

8: Creating something: It gives me a smile when I see something I've made and when someone says how much they liked it my heart soars

9: Sunshine after days of grey skies

10: A thunder storm: Actually the flashes of lightening that causes the thunder something about Mother Natures power always makes me laugh with awe.

A few things that make me happy but most of all sharing with someone else is the biggest happy ever.

Song Lyrics #3 Electronic

Kesha - Rainbow

I used to live in the darkness Dress in black, act so heartless But now I see that colors are everything Got kaleidoscopes in my hairdo Got back the stars in my eyes, too Yeah, now I see the magic inside of me

I really like the lyrics in this song. For me it means that she's coming from a bad place and finally sees the light in her life again.

Song Lyrics #3 Electronic swap:

Amy Winehouse - Like Smoke.

I never wanted you to be my man,
I just needed company.
Don't want to get dependant on,
Your time or who you spend it on
or lose it when you love me.
Like smoke I hung around
And be your balance.

Things That Make Me Happy Swap

Flowers

My father enjoyed planting flowers. When I see flowers they make me happy because I think about the fun memories of being outside with my Father.

2.Rainbows

Rainbows make me happy because, I feel a connection with my Father who is in heaven now. When I am unsure of something, I look up and see rainbows like the one above it makes me feel like my Father is telling me everything is going to be ok.

3.Music

Music is where I go to escape the stress of the hear and now. Music makes me happy no matter what kind of mood I am in.

4.Holding my great niece for the 1st time made me happy. I felt love like never before. It brought back memories of taking care of her Mother. My 1st niece had my first great niece. April 9, 2018. My birthday is April 7 and my 1st born niece was born April 3. The month of April is full of birthdays. Happy times with my family.

5.Spending time with my next to the youngest nieces makes me happy. The look on her face when I told her I was going to take her to Disney on Ice was priceless. The day of the event I did not want to leave the house. But it was worth it. To hear Ava tell me. Thank you Aunt Mare Mare. You are so sweet. Meant the world to me.

6.Going to my Grandmothers house. I find my Grandmother house a happy place. It is quite and peaceful. I enjoy listening to my Grandmothers stories from her childhood. It makes me happy to see my Grandmother interact with my daughter.

7.Watching my daughter grow. I always said I would never have children. But I have a 13 year old little lady. It is never a dull moment with her around. My daughter always know what to say to make me smile. The joys of being a Mother is never ending.

8.Sunflowers

Yellow is my happy color. Sunflowers bring back happy memories of my Mom and Dad planting sunflowers for me. Little things make me happy. And all of my happy thoughts revolve around my family.

9.Going for walks. I find it amazing go for walks and find things in nature that I have never seen before. It makes me stop and think about God and his beautiful world.

  1. Helping my Mother cook family dinners. Just being able to be with my Mom make me happy.

Hi Farah!
We are partners for Profile Swap: things that make you happy! Which I emailed because I am new and obviously not sure of what I am doing! :) Thank-you for being so kind and emailing me to tell me I did it wrong. I hope that I can give this a go and its correct!

Babies… all babies. I just love babies. I like the way they are able to look at things for the very first time, the wonder and excitement. The smallness of their features and how much they depend on their parent. I wouldn’t have had 5 if I didn’t love them!

Glitter. Yep, I said it. Those glitter bombs people send in the mail for torture would just be a small amount of amazing for me. Almost 40 and I still like glitter.

Flowers. It sounds cliché but I love a pretty bouquet of flowers, or a handmade dandelion crown. There is something so special about flowers, I just adore them.

My moms grilled sandwiches- As long as I can remember my mom has made amazing grilled sandwiches, that have a mix of mayo, mustard and garlic salt on them, along with cheese and usually ham. She adds lettuce and tomato to them and I can’t duplicate it to save my life. I am lucky because when I visit her still she makes them for me.

Travelling or even travelling vicariously through someone- I love hearing about customs and cultures, learning new facts, hearing the sounds and song of a different country. I love smelling the smells and absorbing as much as I can.

Traditions- I try to be the kind of mom who has “traditions” because I want my kids to be able to remember the things they did as children. Traditions like sitting with santa (my oldest is 13 and still will do it… just for me) We go for drives and look at Christmas lights, we take a yearly camping trip to a crazy destination and usually it ends up in chaos. We have so many little traditions that it makes me feel whole and happy.

Old Things- things with age, and things with a story… antiques. The smell of the old wood or the feel of the metal. I just like to breathe in the depth of antiques and think about who might have owned them or what they were used for.

Cake- I can never eat cake without a smile. Who doesn’t like some form of cake? Even a muffin is a cupcake without frosting. I would eat cake everyday if I could. 

Completing a project- I live in a old house and I have large plans for it. It has a ton of wallpaper which is screaming for removal. Bathrooms need remodeled, flooring, cabinets in the kitchen you name it, it could use a touch up. I love the feeling of accomplishment and a job well done. It truly makes me happy.

Coffee, a blanket, and Netflix- My husband and I don’t get a lot of time alone together (with the 5 kiddos), but when we do you can find us on our couch watching an episode of “Fixer Upper” or “Izombie” Maybe even Riverdale. With ice cream, or coffee and a blanket. The perfect end to a usually busy day.

Have a terrific day :)

Sorry. I was thinking that this swap is via email and hence hadn't posted anything on your profle earlier.

Song Lyrics #2 Electronic

I love the song, 'Try Everything ' from the movie Zootopia. This has been sung by Shakira and every word is so meaningful.

I messed up tonight I lost another fight I still mess up but I'll just start again I keep falling down I keep on hitting the ground I always get up now to see what's next Birds don't just fly They fall down and get up Nobody learns without getting it won I won't give up, no I won't give in Till I reach the end And then I'll start again Though I'm on the lead I wanna try everything I wanna try even though I could fail I won't give up, no I won't give in Till I reach the end And then I'll start again No I won't leave I wanna try everything I wanna try even though I could fail
