Reunion with Vincent....

 Me, Vincent and my hubby
this pic was taken before we left back to Palembang
a said goodbye pic...

After about 4 days celebrated Eid in my mom's home  in Sumedang,  the west Java province, we're going away to Jogjakarta, the central of Java, sending Vincent to his boarding place where he recently stay for college.
Actually it's  the first time we  will see  Vincent's   new place.... I just wonder how he lived his life there... what kind of place he stayed in.... how about the circumstances surrounding him... many questions were  out  of my mind....

 Lunch on the way along Sumedang-Jogjakarta

Arriving at Jogjakarta at about 11.00 pm  we rent a hotel around Vincent's boarding place... Coincidently the hotel we rent was where Vincent  have been staying  alone there for 3 days last time when got  the entrance test to college where he in study now. 
We rent 2 rooms adjacent  where I slept accompanying with Icha and Ochi, and my hubby with Baim and Vincent. Vincent didn't wanna back and slept at his boarding place... he prefer with us... hehe...

You know... It's really surprising me when I see my son's boarding place...  I just wonder  my son  will comfortable stay in this place or not... I'm just a little weird with the situations...And Ochi, Icha and Baim had the same feeling  with me... Only my hubby who has the different feeling....hmm...  I'll tell you in my next post about the atmosphere which made me felt weird in my son's place...Insha Allah.

 In Vincent's room...
(Ochi who took this pic)

For about 5 days we stayed at Jogjakarta... We visited some popular place like Borobudur Temple, ParangTritis beach, Kali Urang, Malioboro... We've taken lots of pictures there... I promise I'll share with you in my another post..Insha Allah. 

Actually me and my hubby have been coming to Jogjakarta several times in the past, but my children Ochi, Icha and Baim had never been there... so I want them to know more about Jogja... You know, Jogjakarta was one of the city tourism which quite popular in Indonesia.. 
but unfortunately  we  spent most our time by shopping some tools to complement the needs of Vincent... I bought a small refrigator, TV, a radio, fan, bedsheets, blankets... and so on.....
However we still felt happy and enjoy along the time with my baby son...

 Baim posed in front of Vincent's new friend  aka his motorcycle which we bought from my hubby's friend at Jogjakarta...

And finaly the time for said goodbye to Vincent was coming... It's trully sad... Me, my hubby, Ochi, Icha and Baim hugged Vincent one by one... I saw his eyes  started watering ...I said to him... take care, my son...!! and dont forget to always pray and pray.. you'll do fine... Allah will always be with you!!
Bye my baby son....!!

Vincent's room...

This is Vincent's first creation on color pencil, which been  sent to me by email 
the theme is: 'MY  ROOM'
I just hope his lecturer will give him 'A'  for this painting...haha...


  1. Hi Nensa! Been quite a while since my last visit here. Nice to get updates on your blog. And yes, that painting of your son is kinda jaw-dropping! I thought all the while it was a photo but I'm amazed on how good his hands are on painting. Verrry impressive indeed! I won't be surprised if he gets to be a popular world class painter one day. Regards!

  2. He did an amazing job on his picture! What an artist! As for his room, it looks huge compared to the dorm rooms that my sons have had in college.

  3. Thanks for this fascinating view of your family life.

    All the best, Boonie

  4. So sorry that i haven't been able to stop by before now! I love these pictures and i'm happy that you were able to visit Vincent too:-)

  5. Hi Nensa, This post almost made me cry ---remembering the times when my sons all left home for college.... That was a hard time for me --as I'm sure it is for you. But--he looks great and I love his room and his motorcycle... He apparently is doing good so far.... I know you are proud of him.

    You asked about the little building in my blog. I think (since it is in front of the Visitor Center) that it is there just for tourists to see. I don't think it is used anymore... BUT--I'm sure it used to be used for something. However, as you know, it is small --so I'm not sure what it was used for.

    Have a fabulous day.

  14. Hi Nensa - oh, i understand you so well - it must be hard leaving your son in a far away place. But then the runion was so nice, and it seems to me, that you are a a family who is very close to each other, so, your love will always be with him - and his with you. Who knows, maybe one day, he'll live close by you again? Have a lovely weekend, dear one!

  26. Hi Nensa, I'm fascinated, Vincent has a lot of talent. I keep observing the correspondence seems to exist with the great painter Vincent Van Gogh. Not only their names but also match your Vincent painted his room as did the great artist in this painting so famous. I really like his paintings, please congratulate him and encourage him to continue painting, he is really good and promising so young.

    Glad you're back already, friend

    God bless you and your wonderful family

  27. Dear Carmen,
    Thank you so much for your valuable thoughts and views, my friend... It such a great meaning to me as you're a senior in fine art world ... Yeah I've been seeing 'Vincent's Room' by the great painter Vincent van Gogh...
    I hope my son will continue painting as he's the college student of fine art right now...
    Thanks so much again my dear Carmen... perhaps I still hope your support to Vincent.
    Blessing to you, my friend!

  28. You are privileged to have the opportunity to visit these beautiful places! Me and my family we send greetings and good health!
