#100: Batik giveaway

I've been thinking about how I make something different in this 100th post. Inspired by a touching collage, I wanted to make one of 100 pictures of my kids. But 100 is a big number. You won't be able to see what's in each picture.
aku sudah berpikir bagaimana caranya bikin post #1oo ini beda. terinspirasi oleh sebuah kolase yang menyentuh, aku pengin bikin kolase 100 foto anak-anak. tapi 100 itu banyak... dan gambarnya gak akan kelihatan satu-satu.

Then I thought of telling 100 facts about me. But it's a hard thing to do. Many people have done it before, I know. Great jobs. But I'm afraid you'll get bored reading mine, finding that's it's not interesting.
lalu aku berpikir tentang 'telling 100 facts of me'. tapi susah. banyak sih yang sudah bikin, hebat. tapi aku khawatir nanti malah pada bosen baca punyaku.

And I thought of making a list of my favorite post. But all those 99 I've posted before are my favorites. You can just click on the archives list.
dan aku berpikir tentang bikin daftar post favoritku. tapi 99 postku itu semuanya favoritku, jadi tinggal diklik di archives aja.

So I decided to do something that many have done also, but I hope this one is interesting. I'm giving away a piece of batik material. Batik is a traditional material and very beautiful. You who sew can make many stuffs of it; and you who don't, can have some one to do it.
akhirnya kuputuskan untuk melakukan yang sebenarnya juga sudah banyak dilakukan orang, tapi aku harap ini cukup menarik. aku akan memberikan selembar kain batik. yang bisa jahit bisa bikin apa aja dari ini. yang tidak, bisa minta tolong yang bisa...

If you are interested, all you have to do is read my post as many as you want (or as you can stand...) Then give me a comment about this blog globally (not only on a post). I want to hear good thing to keep up and bad thing to fix up. I'll choose one of commenters as a winner and send this material to her/him. Check out who will that be on 25 this month.
kalau anda berminat, anda hanya perlu membaca post di blog ini sebanyak anda mau (atau sebanyak anda tahan...) lalu berikan komentar tentang blog ini secara umum (bukan tentang suatu post). aku ingin mendengar hal baik untuk dilanjutkan dan hal buruk untuk diperbaiki. aku akan pilih satu komenter untuk jadi pemenang dan kirim batiknya kepadanya. check out siapa pemenangnya nanti tanggal 25 bulan ini.
Go tell your friends about this, I'm waiting!
Kasih tahu semua orang ya.... aku tunggu!
Enjoy! And thanks before :)

Congratulations on hitting your 100th post. The material you have is beautiful, and I love that it is traditional. I think you are doing a wonderful job on your blog. Your blog is the only blog I visit (because of a language barrier) so far from me (well, besides New Zealand), and with such a different culture. I would love to read more about everyday things you experience as a working mom in Indonesia. I'd also love to hear more about how your religion is a part of your life....keep up the good work, and I'll spread the word about your giveaway!

♥ I agree with Angie! I'd also like to hear more about your daily lives.

Also maybe some of your favorite things!!! That would be fun too! :)

I'll be posting a link to your blog on mine! :)

I saw your give away on Angie's b log. I look forward to reading it more. I have no suggestions just yet as I just found you. I do know I would be very interested in life where you are, it is very different than here. What are your challenges as a mother there? I pretty much would love to have you do what Angie suggested too! Congrats on making it to 100! I look forward to reading and learning more from your blog.

Found you from Are you serious-

Cute blog and fun give away idea. I am coming up on my 100th post and I am trying to think of something fun to do too-

OK so I am a first time visitor. I saw a link on Serious' blog {eventually I will see Angie's too}. It is interesting to read about life in another country/culture. I think you should give us some facts about you and let us decided if you're boring! I think we all have that same belief -- that we are NOT interesting. Lay it on us! It looks like you have twins? I have 3yr old boy/girl twins. I read all three of the before commenters, because we have the twins thing in common! I would be very interesting to read more about your daily life, I for one am very ignorant of different cultures. I would love to learn. I have great desires to travel and see first hand, but a desire or wish it will probably remain! :) It is nice meeting you here in blogland! How small the world becomes with this connection!

I love how you post both languages. Great job on that. I would love to see more recipes so we can try them out on our family for say baltic dinner night? hehe. Great job. Would love to be the winner, beautiful fabric. Kelli

Hooray on 100! That's so exciting. I love reading your blog for just a little insight into life so far across the world! I realize that moms are so much more the same, then different, no matter where we live. I would love you to chronicle a day in your life. How do you get to work? What is your kids' school like? What does your husband do?

And keep up the very good work!

100th post! Awesome!

I've read 3-4 of your posts so far and I think your blog is wonderful. It is awesome that you translate all your posts.

Hooray for 100 posts. Your blog is fun to read just because of the cultural differences and insights you give to living in another country. Keep it up!

I'm a little late for the official celebration, but congrats on your 100 posts! I look forward to visiting and learning more about you!
