We had a great value lunch today at HanSuki. Located in Tebet, the all-you-can eat buffet restaurant is offering similar dishes like Hanamasa, but at almost 40% lower price. The variety of food is good, and the taste is delicious, especially its mushroom soup and beef barbeque. Thanks to Mas Ugiek who recommended this place!
Eid marks the day when all moslems around the world gather with their loved ones to celebrate our succesful journey of becoming better moslems during Ramadhan. Similarly, our family spend our Eid festive days in Elok’s parents house, taking pictures and tasting variety of food in this most special day of the year. Eid Mubarak! Here are our photos during the day:
We came early this morning to reserve a nice spot inside the new mosque in neighborhood for our Eid prayer.
The new mosque, Masjid H Andi Muhammad Ghalib, is a beautiful one, with touch of Arabic ornament inside. And look at that dome!
Is that a word? Droning? Haha.
Anyway, I and Rafif continue to learn how to fly Pelican, our drone. Taking off from our roof top, it was much more delicate take off and landing procedures than in swimming pool area, given relatively narrow area (that yellow pad is the drone landing pad). But thankfully, we managed to complete the task safely.
Then I recorded the movie of my drone flying around complex. Geez, just realized how difficult it was to create a smooth, cinematic aerial video. As you can see in the video, the movement was very jaggy. I’m still not familiar with Mavic controller, let alone to focus on how to shot pro-like video. Many things to learn and practice, I guess 😉
You can see the video on this YouTube link
Under heavy tutelage from my brother, Oyi, I and Rafif was finally able to fly our drone for the very first time. Feeling cagey and awkward on the controller, and felt bit of scared for crashing our drone at the first flight, Alhamdulillah it was a non-eventful flight.
Taking off from our complex’s swimming pool area, we managed to make ‘Pelican’ (that’s the call sign of our Mavic anyway, taking name from Halo’s famous drop ship) hover, and fly around the complex. Here are the first pictures and videos from Pelican… and hopefully ones from many to come!
Today is the Moving On Ceremony, marking her graduation from SMA Cikal Amri. May Allah bless her and her friends to embrace brighter future for them. Aamiin.
Here are the story and pictures from the event:
It’s so good to be back in our own house. We spent whole day moving back our stuffs from our rented house (which luckily is located just across the road). By maghrib, we already had ifhtar at our own house, despite still surrounded with boxes of stuffs which we had no place to put. Sigh, but that needs few more months to complete the interior design works so our house will be looked beautiful inside as in the outside!
After 6 months of renovation, this weekend we will be moving back to our own house. Alhamdulillah, everything is almost set, the basic infrastructure – air condition, water supplies and window covers have been installed. However, the internet lines are not yet ready (how can we live without it? LOL)
Some of the rooms are new and refreshed. Aya and Rafif’s room have their new set of furnitures (yes, that IKEA confusing trip did give us something). And more excitingly, there are new library and music rooms for Elok and me, respectively.
Next will be the interior design works for the new living rooms which will take a bit sometime (and extra money too!).
To be continued…..
