Interviewed as one of the fashion designers for Miss World 2013 contestants.

This year, Nancy & Warren Couture  gets the chance to dress three of the Miss World 2013 contestants. Today me with one of my assistants fly to Bali for dress fitting. We are so happy that everything went well. Not to mention Warren was so nervous last night she couldn’t sleep. Hahaha. It’s really by God’s grace, they fit them almost perfect. There ‘re only minor alterations for the length and the girls love the dress.
After the fitting, I was called to be interviewed to explain how we’re inspired when we created these dresses. Too bad my beloved partner’s not around. It must have been more fun if we can do it together.

The hotel, Bali Nirwana Resort ‘s so beautiful but I didn’t have the chance yo take pictures because I was so focused with the job. I forgot it was this nice when I stayed there long time ago. You should go there and enjoy the view.

Farmers Market (Perth)

It was a beautiful sunny day when we went to this farmers market at Manning Road. Every product there’s organic and all are produced in Western Australia. Everything looks healthy and fresh. As you see in my picture below, they sell organic and gluten free crepes. It’s as yummy as the ordinary crepe. It somehow motivates me to have a gluten free diet now. I feel healthier, leaner and more energized.

My testimony from Mandurah trip.

Hi all, I’m sorry it took me a while to post a new one due to the busy schedules after a long holiday.

We arrived in Perth on Friday and we made plans right away.Since Mandurah’s a bit far from Perth we chose to go there on Sunday so that our good friend, Michael and the whole family could come with us. It meant we had to skip church.

Then, you know what happen?
On Saturday afternoon, Joshua my oldest one got sick all of the sudden.  He had a fever and a bad headache even there were no symptoms of flu or sore throat. He cried in pain. The last time he was like this when he got dengue fever.  I was so worried.  I gave him pain reliever, it didn’t get better. It’s not funny if he got  sick for the rest of the holiday.

That night, when I was sitting alone on the couch wondering what has happened, the Holy Spirit told me that I should prioritize God by going to church on Sunday. I’ve taken it for granted. Then I asked God for forgiveness and told my husband about what I heard and cancel the Mandurah trip.

Surprisingly, the moment we took decision to go church, Joshua got better and he looked like someone who’s never been sick before. Praise God.

Then we went to a 10 o’clock service and finished at twelve o’clock and it was a beautiful day because the weather channel said it’s gonna be raining and windy. Finally, we could still make it to Mandurah. And we still could manage to rent a boat.

As you can see on the picture below, Joshua’s so fit and he even learnt to ride the boat. You know how exciting it is for a boy his age to ride a boat.

Long story short, it was a happy ending. Prioritize our God and He always works miraculously.

Matthew 6:33  But let your first care be for his kingdom and his righteousness; and all these other things will be given to you in addition.

By taking the boat, we could go to see nice houses with their private boats parking floating on the water.

Kesaksianku dari perjalanan ke Mandurah:

Hallo semuanya, aku minta maaf karena sudah agak lama nggak posting karenakan sibuk banget  setelah libur lebaran lama.

Kita nyampe di Perth hari jumat dan kita cepat-cepat buat rencana.Karena Mandurah agak jauh dari Perth, kita putuskan untuk ke sana hari Minggu biar teman baik kita si Michael dan sekeluarga bisa ikut kita ke Mandurah. Tapi itu berarti kita harus bolos ke gereja.

Lalu, tebak apa yang terjadi?
Sabtu siangnya, tiba-tiba anakku yang paling gedhe Joshua sakit. Badannya panas,kepalanya sakit padahal nggak ada tanda-tanda flu atau infeksi tenggorokan.

Josh kesakitan dan terakir kali dia kayak gini waktu dia kena demam berdarah. Aku kuatir banget karena aku sudah kasih obat tapi nggak mempan.

Nggak luculah kalau sampai dia sakit selama liburan.

Malam itu, waktu aku duduk sendirian di sofa mikir-mikir, Roh Kudus bilang kalau kita harus prioritaskan Tuhan dan harus ke gereja hari Minggu. Aku sudah remehkan hal penting ini.
Lalu aku minta ampun ke Tuhan dan kasih tahu suamiku apa yang aku dapat dan batalkan acara ke Mandurah.

Yang mengagetkan, waktu kita ambil keputusan untuk ke gereja. Joshua jadi membaik dan dia nggak kelihatan seperti orang yang habis sakit. Puji Tuhan.

Kemudian kita ke gereja kebaktian jam 10 pagi, selesai jam 12 dan cuaca bagus banget karena semestinya ramalan cuaca hari itu bakal hujan. Akhirnya kita masih keburu ke Mandurah dan bahkan sempat sewa kapal boat.

Seperti yang kita lihat di foto yang pertama, Joshua kelihatan  sehat dan malah sempat belajar nyetir kapal yang kita sewa itu. Tahu sendiri lah anak seumur dia pasti senang banget bisa pegang setir kapal.

Singkat cerita, ini happy ending. Utamakanlah Tuhan kita dan Dia akan bekerja dengan penuh mujizat.

Matius 6:33 Tetapi carilah dahulu Kerajaan Allah dan kebenarannya, maka semuanya itu akan ditambahkan kepadamu.

God bless you all. Xoxo

Big Bowl Noddle House

Big Bowl Noodle House has been there in Victoria Park for a long time but I just had the chance to go there this afternoon. It looks interesting what’s written below the sign. It says: natural ingredients, natural flavor, no preservative, healthy gourmet food.
But I’m not sure about the calories though, a lot I think. Hahahaah

The Aviator

I never thought of having the aviator sun-glasses because I personally like the over-size sun-glasses better. One day my husband asked me to buy a pair of aviator glasses. I tried so many brands and it’s indeed hard for me to find the right one. Sometimes the lenses made me dizzy (cos I have 20/20 vision)  and sometimes they’re too small hurting my temple due to a huge head of mine. Hahahaha. Then I found this Tom Ford brand which are comfortable to wear but I’m still not sure if look better wearing these compared to my oversized sunglasses.  What do you think? :)

Seafood Seafood Seafood (Cicerello’s)

Cicerello’s has been a favorite place/a must go place for my family when we go to Perth. It’s been 4 years since the last time we’re there. Still crowded, but we got a table right away cos the place’s pretty big.
