The first day of Ramadhan coincides with Elok and Endah’s birthday, so we have our first ‘bukber’ (fasting break) in Elok’s parents house for small celebration. Insya Allah 30 days from now, we’ll gather again here for Eid!
Here are some pictures from today:
Mosque suddenly lights up, full of prayers coming for sholat Isya and Tarawih. The parking place turns to market place selling your Ramadhan’s needs, from food to clothes. Coming to mosque become family’s event.
So here I am, taking advantage of my day’s leave, I and Rafif go to Masjid Raya Pondok Indah to join hundreds of other prayers to welcome the holy month of Ramadhan.
May all of us have a blessed Ramadhan. Insya Allah aamiin.
Apparently our new roof top at our house offer beautiful view of neighborhood. We can also see the MRT lane close to our complex from afar. Would be good to use it as BBQ place, although it’s a bit small, and most likely we’ll use it for dry area.

Elok’s big family (Ghozali family) meet up today at Bambu Apus to have silaturahim before Ramadhan, which Insya Allah will fall next Saturday. It’s always good to start the holy month through this way. May we all have a blessed Ramadhan. Aamin.
In few weeks time we should move back to our house, albeit there are still finishing activities here and there, not to mention the interior design works. Hopefully we’ll have our “new home” when Lebaran comes. That would be awesome.
2 years ago at this very day, we announced the start of strategic project to integrate the bank.
After 2 years of tiring, challenging yet exciting journey, we arrived at destination, only to pause, celebrate for a moment, and set sail for a bigger journey.
For me, I have fulfilled my mission. Let Allah be my guidence to where my future goes.
So here we are, publicly launching our integrated entity, PT Bank HSBC Indonesia, after a 2 years long journey to get here. After getting through sleepless nights, exhausting tasks, and yes, period of dramas, finally we can celebrate our achievement of marking history, not only for HSBC group, but for Indonesian banking industry.
The event was held at Ritz Carlton, Pacific Place. Featuring Raisa as entertainer, it was attended by hundreds of staff, clients, vendors, partners and government officials. It was a night of great celebration. Alhamdulillah.
