Hubby's 23rd Bday Present :)

Feb 4th, 2010

We might not be the most romantic couple,

But I always feel the romance in our love growing bigger and bigger

as we share good or even bad times together…

We might not be the most handsome and pretty couple,

But I recognize the beauty of understanding and selfless care that I receive

Teach me about unconditional love

We might not be the most perfect couple

But your pure kindness and attention covers my weaknesses and complete me

Letting me to become a better me of me

What I am trying to say is that your presence brings a whole new world to me.

The world that has a new meaning that I never understand but it is magical

Happy 23rd Birthday to my lovely FiancĂ©e…

More years to go and we will fill our world with more magical stuff with our love

I love you and I am thankful for you in my life.

And I know I will cherish every single moment with you

Updates :)

Yes, this blog post is dedicated to pay off all the times that I've been missing for not updating this blog so often. tons of things happened between the last post and today. The major event was my engagement and now I am in Indo already.

Yes, I am getting married soon. It will be on Jan 23rd, 2011. Who thought that I will get married at 2011? Not even me. But when God opens the door, nobody can close it.

Deddy decided to go back to Indo for good last November. He felt that being in Indo is his calling so that he can stay close to his parents. I was a little bit shocked, didn't expect that it will happen that soon. I didn't have any plan to go back to indo for good any soon at that time. at least it will be for another year in Seattle. I was so worry for I was doubting myself in keeping up with long distance relationship.

I went back to Indo with Deddy last Nov with 2 purpose. first, is to have vacation in Indonesia ( we've been planned it even before he decided to go back for good) and second, is to take him to Indo safely :). We ended up spending almost 5 weeks in Indo.

We spent the first three weeks for culinary vacation, went to a lot of places in Jakarta to have the foods that we've been wanting for so long and met old friends. Then we spend our fourth week to have a holiday with our own family. I went to bali with my parents and youngest sister and he went to Palembang.

Suddenly I got a phone call from Deddy ( He was still at Palembang) that he was thinking for us to get married and his parents also support his decision. His parents tried to find a good marriage date and according to chinese tradition, we got 2 dates. Shortly, we tried to look for a hotel for our wedding ceremony and we found a hotel on Jan 23rd, 2011. Soon after that, on December 27th, 2009, Deddy's family decided to come to my house and officially proposed me to be Deddy's wife.

I still can believe, the vacation trip that I made ended with an engagement while in the first place i thought i am sending him off to Indo and never know when we will meet each other after I go back to Seattle.

so I went back to Seattle on Jan 1st, 2010 and surpriseeeeeee, I went back with Deddy. He still got couple things to take care in Seattle and we were planning to have a pre-wedding photoshoot in Seattle to catch the memories that we had there. I will share it later :)

Sorry for MIA for soooo looooonnnnnggg

So I know that I have been missing in action for soooooooo loooonnnnnggggg from my blog. I think it might be 4 or 5 months already. Of course a lot of things happened in my life within 5 months and and most of them are major keystones of my life. I'll try to run down each one of them clearly in this post, but sorry if it seems kinda rough. 5 months life in a post?? that is a very quick summary ^^

1. Graduation
So yeah finally I am graduated!!!!! With Cumma Cum Laude...Yeeaaayyyy!!! It was a lot of hard work. Tiredness, tears, sickness, boredom, everything I have been through (and of course everybody ever been through this kind of situation). But at least I got some pay off. But the most important thing that I accomplished was I made my dad really proud of me. He was crying during my commencement. When the announcer mentioned my name and I walked down my podium with my honor, I was crying but happy to have that moment. So here is a picture of my graduation!
So my dad came to me the night after the graduation to have some quality time with me. He is the best person that I ever had. He inspires me so much through all things that happens in my life. "People may have flaws in their life, but it is a matter how we handle every situation with wisdom and pray". I love you dad!! love you so much!! and also for you mom... You always there to listen to me.. Whenever I feel short of something, you always there to remind me that I have enough of everything to be shined. What can I say further about them, Thank you Lord for all the guidance in my family :)

Then 3 or 4 days after my graduation, we were off to New York for a week to have our famaly vacation :)

2. Working Life
Three weeks after my graduation, finally I got a job! After months of job searching, after tons of interview, finally I return back to my internship company. So grateful I am that I know I can hold on to God's promise that His children should not be worry of anything. The world can push you down, but with the glory of God, He will prove that we are blessed! So I am working in a small accounting company in Seattle area. I am trying to get the most out of it, so when the time for me to have my own business, I can take what I learn from this company and use it. We'll see more my working life prob in my next blogs :) not too much to say right now!

3. Youtube Channel :)
Check this out: www.youtube.com/limindah
This is my first debut in the cosmetics/beauty.make-up world. I am still learning and I will continue to learn. I am not an expert but hopefully what I did inspire another people :)
Please leave me feedback or comment so I can keep on improving my channel.

Well, I think that is all for now. It is literally 2am in the morning and I supposed already fallen asleep now.

See you guys soon!!!

Love ~ Indah :)

Las Vegas Trip

Last week, on the memorial day weekend, I got a chance to go to Las Vegas with my boyfriend and friends. I was so hot there and I was melting. We try as many buffet as we can and we end up ate one buffet restaurant each day. We were there for 4 days, from saturday to tuesday. the buffet that we went: Wynn, Paris, Treasure Island and Bellagio. They all were really nice, but I vote Wynn as the best buffet. well, if I want to compare it to other hotel, the food was totally amazing, however, the price is also twice of the other hotels.

We also tried to play casino. We collect our money for about $50. and we won $100! 200% return..hahaha..isn't that great. however, the second time we tried to play casino, we lose $50. so we only ended up won $50. However, it was still fun. A new experience of my life.

Vegas is always a place to have fun. 24 hour city that never sleep. It is a sin city. I am sure that I'll be back to Vegas next time.

Here are some pictures that we took during our trip:

Just quick update about myself, I am graduation in 2 weeks!! yeay!!!! and my parents are coming here exactly a week from now and they are going to stay here for a month!! Excited!

Thanks for reading <3

ODB: The Secret is...

1 Corinthians 2:6-16


If you believe Rhonda Byrne, author of the bestselling book The Secret, “The shortcut to anything you want in your life is to be and feel happy now!” According to Byrne, this has to do with something called the law of attraction. If you think only about things that make you happy, she says, happy things will be attracted to you.

Sounds easy enough.

However, the Bible says that “the secret” to life is something very different. It has to do with “the law of the Spirit of life” that sets us free from “the law of sin and death” (Rom. 8:2), not with the “law of attraction.”

According to the apostle Paul, the most important thing to know is “Jesus Christ and Him crucified” (1 Cor. 2:2). To those who are concerned with happiness now, this is indeed foolishness (v.14). They do not recognize the power of God in what appears to them as weakness.

The Lord created us with a desire to know what is secret. In His wisdom, He kept certain things hidden in mystery for a time (v.7). But now, through His Holy Spirit, He has made them known. And the secret He reveals has nothing to do with having happy thoughts in order to obtain happy things; it has to do with having the mind of Jesus Christ (v.16). — Julie Ackerman Link

There is a law that made us free—
In Romans 8 this truth is heard;
The secret is to walk with God
And daily lean upon His Word. —Hess

To know lasting happiness, we must get to know Jesus.


Again, I learn a lot from today's devotion. Hope it gives you more wisdom which comes from Father.

Making The Cut (from Our Daily Bread)

Matthew 4:18-22 (New International Version)

The Calling of the First Disciples
18As Jesus was walking beside the Sea of Galilee, he saw two brothers, Simon called Peter and his brother Andrew. They were casting a net into the lake, for they were fishermen. 19"Come, follow me," Jesus said, "and I will make you fishers of men." 20At once they left their nets and followed him.

21Going on from there, he saw two other brothers, James son of Zebedee and his brother John. They were in a boat with their father Zebedee, preparing their nets. Jesus called them, 22and immediately they left the boat and their father and followed him.


Every year, high-school seniors apply to their favorite universities and then watch the mailbox for the letter announcing their acceptance.

It was different for teens in New Testament times. Jewish boys would often attend rabbinical schools until age 13. Then only the best and brightest would be chosen to “follow” the local rabbi. This small, select group of disciples would go where he went and eat what he ate—modeling their lives after the rabbi. Those who didn’t make the cut would pick up a trade like carpentry, sheep-herding, or fishing.

Guys like Simon, Andrew, James, and John hadn’t made the cut. So instead of following the local rabbi, they were down by the docks, knee-deep in the family business. It’s interesting that Jesus sought out the men the local rabbi had rejected. Instead of targeting the best and brightest, Jesus offered His invitation, “Follow Me,” to ordinary run-of-the-mill fishermen. What an honor! They would become followers of the ultimate Rabbi.

Jesus extends the same honor to you and me—not because we are the best or brightest, but because He needs ordinary people like us to model His life and to lovingly rescue people on His behalf. So, follow Him and let Him make something of your life! — Joe Stowell

As followers of Jesus
Who love Him from the heart,
We may be ordinary,
But we’ve been set apart. —Sper

Even the ordinary and the outcast can make the cut to follow Jesus.


Hopefully this Daily Bread bless your life as it has blessed mine today!
