Return Home...

 On the way to my hometown...

Alhamdulillah, thanks to Allah... finally we're back to our home in Palembang on last Monday morning on September, 20 2010... from our long trip to my hometown  in Sumedang...
I have lots of story and photos about  my trip... I promise I'll share with you  all my bloggies friends here...

As I told you in my previous post,  I've back to my hometown to celebrate Eid and also for visiting my beloved parents.
Eid this year was really special for us, coz  my eldest son Vincent was not with us in Palembang... but we  feel  happy  coz we got reunion with him in his grandma's home in Sumedang. He came alone from Jogjakarta by train...

It's make me felt  strange when we're at our car  in our trip to Sumedang... We're only five, without Vincent... only me, my hubby, Ochi, icha, and my little son Baim...  Hmmm... usually  we're back to our hometown always with my complete family.. just not like this time...

Here are some pictures  along my trip to my hometown, Sumedang... enjoy!

Me with Baim...

For about 4 days we're enjoyed  in Sumedang, reunion with my whole family...  After that we're going to Jogjakarta, sending Vincent to her new place where he stay for college... we're there for  about 5 days.. and then we're back to Palembang...

In my next post Insha Allah I'll  tell you about how we spent our time with Vincent in Jogjakarta... It's really excited, even though we felt sad in the end, because we must  return  home and left Vincent alone there...

  13. Hi Nensa,

    I am glad you and your family arrived home safe! I can imagine it must have been strange without your son. This summer we went on holiday without our eldest daughter for the first time. I really missed her, but that's the way life goes....I will simply have to get used to it. I enjoyed seeing pictures of you and your family. You all look very stylish!!

    Happy weekend!

    Lieve groet, Madelief

  14. Dear Madelief,
    Thank you for your lovely words...
    I also thanks to Allah, becoz of His blessing we can home safely...
    Yeah... it's really sad indeed traveling for the first time without the presence of one of our children..
    But this was life... as parents we must sincerely accept the situation like this..
    Happy weekend too to you, my dear friend.

  15. Dear Nensa,
    Those pictures are lovely. Family time is priceless. I was actually wondering about Vincent before I started reading your post. I remember your post from when he was accepted to college, and ready to relocate. As I said before, I can relate because I have a 21-year-old son, and I know how much we want to keep our children under our wings. Always.
    Thank you so much for stopping by and for your thoughtful comment. I appreciate it.

    Blessings to you and your family, dear Nensa.

  16. I enjoyed looking at the pictures on your other blog. Your family is so lovely and I can tell you had a good time. I bet Vincent misses his family too.

  17. Looks like a fun trip back to your hometown, I enjoyed the photos too, thank you for sharing.
