November Challenge – IDR400K food budget for a family of 5Β 

This is how much I have to work on for food this month until the next paycheck (God knows when). IDR400k ($30) for a family of 5. 

Wanna follow my ‘magical’ journey? 

And yes, I didn’t buy any food from the 1st of November. We just eat what we have left in the fridge and today we only have 2 eggs left. 

What do I provide my family with this little money? 

Follow me on Instagram and hit the ‘follow’ button if you haven’t already. 

Jeez… I even get excited with this (weirdo) and my brain is like a roller coaster trying to figure this out. My head hurts from catching a cold, got my pill, and can’t even sleep coz my brain refuse to stop rolling. Oh… And I have no budget left for households items πŸ˜₯

Will I stay with the IDR400K budget or I’ll have extra money coming in? God knows. 

Shall we start?

Stop screwing your life!

I can’t tolerate people who are so stubborn in screwing their life. I just can’t. 

I wanted to yell at their faces “Grow Up!!!” 

Grown up people knows how to act like one. They know that life is not gonna wait for them to have ‘the motivation’ so they can have a life. 

To live is not only about breathing. Please! 

What do you want in life? To be a successful entrepreneurs? To be a writer? To be a singer? To travel the world? You can be whatever you want to be as long as you stop screwing with your life. 

Sleeping in until noon is screwing. Watching YouTube all day is screwing. Staying up all night doing bullshits is screwing. On social media all day is screwing. Sitting on your couch all day is screwing. Pitying yourself for not being skillful enough to do something actually useful for you is screwing. Thinking that everybody is at fault for your failure is screwing. Waiting for someone to help you get your life is screwing. I can go on and on for pages. 

Knock it off! Your life is what you decide to DO! DO is the keyword here. Do something. Make something. Be something. 

You can find millions of other people actually achieved their goals and dreams. ONLINE. You have the phone, the internet, find them, learn from them. Make use to what you have to make you achieve yours. 

Doing something that you don’t want to do is not easy. You have to FORCE yourself to do it. But if you want to be what you wanted, force yourself to do it. I can’t say enough. 

My kids won’t stop playing games unless I force them to stop. I need to prep my kids to school and I force myself to get up at 4.30am every day. I hate ironing, but I force myself coz my kids need their uniforms. 

We can not function what we’re supposedly do if we don’t force ourselves. Control yourself in a way that you make yourself do what you need to do. Coz it’s easy to do what you like rather than what you need to. 

You like chocolate but you can’t have them coz you have to control your sugar. You like to go to the movies every weekend but you can’t coz you don’t have a budget for it. Self control is what grownups do. 

Stop screwing your life! Grow up!

Al is wearing Zara Boys shirt, Carter pants, Precise shoes, Nike socks, and Adidas backpack.

I really need to have more skill on my photography 😁

Oh… This is Abe’s church drum class audition.

Monday, 1 May 2017

It’s May Day. No school today. We’re gonna stay at home all day 😁

Tuesday, 2 May 2017

Updated our entrance with a homemade bench. We got hats, shoes cabinets, jackets, umbrella, keys, watches, sunglasses, and bags in a bench.

It’s an entrance/mudroom/launch pad. I put the kid’s school bags and church bags inside the bench. It has a compartment inside with a sliding doors. Each kid has their own space. The kids will prepare their bags for school or church, so the next morning they can sit and put on their shoes, grab their bags, jackets, hats and go go go!

You know how chaotic school days will be when everything just spreading here and there. Where’s your launch pad?

7.14pm what’s this?

It flew in the kitchen and stay on the kitchen cabinet… Soooooooo big 😡

3.47pm thunderstorm is coming again 😭 Yesterday I got so scared coz thunders was storming for at least 30 minutes, non-stop, then the power was off. Now, it’s happening again 😫

Luckily, I’ve sent Abe to tutor. Now I’m gonna do what’s left in my to do list. Let me show you my lunch today.

Butter toast with peanut butter and granola, also a big glass of banana, strawberries, avocado, oats smoothies. Yum πŸ‘Œ

7.48am working on my planner. Some urgent matters needs to be handled soon πŸ€”

Oh… We found another snake last night 😡 Abe was calling, saying that he found a worm in the house, by the coffee corner. I grabbed my salt container, wanted to sprinkle some at it. Hubby said, it wasn’t a worm, it was a baby snake 😱

Oh my Lord! I’m so scared of snakes and we already found 3 in our house 😭 1 was at the backyard, 1 at the front yard, and now in the house 😭😭😭 How can I sleep??? 😡 Someone please tell me how to live in a village and not to worry about snakes at all 😨 Please tell me 😭

12.41am shut off my computer. Laying on bed. Trying to sleep.

I’m exhausted. Today was a circus. Let me tell you my route today.

School – home – school – home – school – home – school – home – tutor – home – tutor – home

All those while doing my chores 😌 Finished my housework around 8pm, had shower, sent the kids to bed, start working on my computer. Writing. Now better close my eyes 😫

4.30pm storm 😨

8.35pm had my shower and now on the bed. Today is my lazy day. You know… I noticed, when there’s a day that I was like wooz wooz wooz… The next day, I’ll be like lame lame lame…

Yesterday I was so on the go, checked 90% off my list… Today, I only did 10% πŸ€”

I sent the kids to school, I did a load of laundry, I folded, I ironed. That’s all I did. I didn’t even workout 😌 The boys ate leftovers.

I did take the kids for badminton

We spent an hour there. They get to play. I get to spend time with my friend. It’s a win win πŸ˜‰

So yesterday, Al wrote his exam schedule on my desk calendar

I didn’t know it until I was sitting on my desk and start planning my day. Then I saw it. It’s good that he started to acknowledge how important scheduling is. Writing down things really helps.

I’ve tried so many types of planning. Now, I’m quite happy with my own planner. I wrote down everything that I need to do that day, the week, the month, the year. I’ll do a post on it.

So… I write down literally everything. Coz often, I ran around like a lost sheep. Didn’t know what to do when there are definitely many things to do. I ended up doing nothing. So, my planner helps me a lot. Like a lot.

Well… There are times like today that I don’t do much. And I don’t push myself. I did so much, then when I feel like I want to slow down, I’ll slow down. What about the works? It’ll be there tomorrow. No one’s going to die when I don’t sweep the floor, right?

10.05am let’s plan but 1st… Coffee

Look who’s enjoying the weekend 😁

6.15pm waiting on my pizza dough

I have a whole post on it and my review on Kapal Api Grande White Coffee

I’m very slow today. I have cram 😨 It happens everytime I have my period. I tried to sleep on it, but always failed. At the end, I have to take Panadol, my pain killer. I know it’s not a good solution, but I have too. I don’t have any choice. It’s painful and I can’t bear pain 😭

8.51pm on the bed. The kids are still watching Ninja Turtles on HBO. Finished their dinner. Here is the pizza…

Now… I’m gonna sleep. I don’t feel very good today πŸ˜”

WITL #14 – Flashback

Sunday, 2 April 2017

5.13pm just finished ironing the clothes.

Those are from a week laundry. I don’t iron all of the clothes. I just iron the kid’s uniforms and some clothes that has certain fabric that are easily crumpled.

And let me show you what happen when you ask the boys to pickup and organize their Lego.

Lego madness! πŸ˜ͺ
I wanted to do rearrange and reorganize my kitchen.

But, it’s pretty late and I still haven’t sweep and dust the house 😌 Life isn’t always what you wanted it to be. You just need to keep rolling 😁

9.16pm just finished my shower. We were sitting and laughing with the kids till my stomach hurts πŸ˜‚

We were watching their videos. I realized, I did a lot of filming back then. It really is quite useful. We can watch it all together, laughing, cherishing the moments. We can’t turn back time, but we can watch them 😁 I should do more filming again. But they’re big now and very shy. Unlike back then when they’re younger. But this blogging also kinda redeemer to that πŸ˜†

12.40pm Things are a bit crazy today. I sent Abe to school, went to wet market. Bought 5kg of fish and 5kg of chicken. Then came back home and find Al was having a moment 😌

The thing is he gets up early and don’t switch off the AC. And when my mom switch it off, he’ll get upset and switch it on again 😀 I told him many many times that we should always… Always switch off the AC as soon as we got up. Electricity bill is expensive. Yet he did that again. Kids have all the privileges of being kids πŸ˜…

Tuesday, 4 April 2017

Stocking up on my freezer meals.

5kg of fish and 5kg of chicken. Some frozen chicken nuggets, meatballs, sausages, and chicken wings. Enough for 2-3 weeks of meals.

Wednesday, 5 April 2017

12.27pm I’m stuck at Suzuki Service Center, the car needs its maintenance. Thank God, we have the budget for it. But need to cut down on others. Momma needs to rewrite the budget 😌

20.43pm just got home took Abe looking for a pair of jeans for his test tomorrow. I picked him up from school at 9 am and he didn’t tell me anything about wearing a pair of long pants. It was about 7pm he told me 😀 The fact is… He doesn’t have a pair of​ long pants. Even though he had, he always ask me to cut the pants. He doesn’t like to wear long pants. And we have to search for a long pants his size and it wasn’t easy. Adult size is too big and kid size is too small 😌

Thursday, 6 April 2017

1.45pm I spent most of my time at the school coz Abe doesn’t know what he’ll be finished with the test. And I sent the boys to the barbershop. Finally got their haircut πŸ’‡

21.17pm I sweep, mop, and washed​ my comforters. Now, I’m gonna have my tea and start working on my computer.

Friday, 7 April 2017

1.47am I can finally crossed all of my to do list.

Feel soooooooo good πŸ˜†

8.17pm came back from the kid’s Easter at a church with the school. The boys are having a fun time.

And Abe kinda having his ‘moments’ with the sermon. He’s a sensitive boy and gets more sensitive when it comes to God’s words. Every night when we read our Bible, when it touch him, he’ll cry. It happened again last night at the church. My poor boy… I hope his friends don’t make fun of him. God bless you boy πŸ™πŸ˜‡

Saturday, 8 April 2017

8.16am had my Joel Osteen time and as soon as I finished and came out of the room, ‘reality’ hit me then there goes my – trying to be positive – day πŸ˜‘

2.41pm the kids are changing their bed sheets, I cooked, the kitchen is clean, laundry folded, waiting on the 2nd load of laundry, hubby is working on the kitchen (finally) and I’m sitting here blogging while having peanut butter sandwich and my 2nd cup of coffee.

Sometimes what you need is to have a 5 minutes of sitting down and have a good cup of coffee and you’ll have more energy to do the rest of the chores.
