wow March came and gone!

how are you guys? long time no see. i know its been a while i didnt update my blog. i blame it on the hot weather (haha) and like usual, the stress and all those activities at work.

but worry not, i am always with yarn and needle whenever i am free, wherever i am.

i took some yarns with me during my last trip to Sumatera too.. and yeap, i finished all my 31 squares for March. wanna see?

i started my pieces for April too, just two, today’s square is still on its way 🙂

so i am up to date, Alhamdulillah.

now i guess i could talk a little bit about Medan. as the trip was my fourth or fifth trip so far, i know i will not be able to say a lot of nice things about it. for me, Medan is the city of traffic, motorbikes and dust.

but amidst all those, i still love the warmth of the people. during the first day we were there, we took a walk early in the morning to buy some “lontong”for breakfast and everyone from each house that we passed will call and ask us to come have tea. of course we politely declined, but thats what happened for the rest of the days we were there.

teh manis (sweetened black tea) is their favorite drink and i just love to see how simple their lives are in the village.  how they all will wake up for fajr and didnt go back to bed, even small kids! i was a little ashamed when an aunt told me how her son is very lazy, saying he will only wakes up at 9am. gosh, i held my tongue from revealing what time i will wake up during my “lazy day”. hahaha

anyway, here are some photos i managed to snap. it was very warm, i was on vacation, so i was not very much in the mood of playing camera lady 🙂

right on. its very warm outside. lets cool down and continue to crochet. no little side projects on April. its the month to go study for my last paper for LOMA.

wish me luck!!

the journey
