Cee’s Black and White Photo Challenge – Liquid

This is the first time I tried a black and white version of food photographs…

🙂

Cakwe with chilli sauce.

Cakwe is one of Indonesian snacks, it is fried breadsticks, eaten with spicy chilli sauce. One of my favorites.

This snack originated from China, brought to this country by Chinese travelers a long time ago.

Fruit punch on a hot day.

Wedang ronde, glutinous rice balls with sweet ginger broth.

And wedang ronde is also one of my favorite dish, this is one of Indonesian traditional drink that originated from Java.

It is made from glutinous rice balls filled with sweet peanuts, and hot sweet ginger broth.

Tastes so good for a cold rainy day… 🙂

And of His signs is the creation of the heavens and the earth and the diversity of your languages and your colors. Indeed in that are signs for those of knowledge. (QS. Ar-Rum 30 verse 22).

Forces of Nature – Wind and Rain

One of my favorite season, is the rainy season.

Those drops of water are blessings from God for this earth. Although at some times, I question why does it have to rain now?

Those times are times when I travel with my family.

Yeah… Outdoor play got canceled because the rain.

🙂

Strong wind blows before the rain.

The leaves and grass are always greener after the rain. And the smell of wet earth is wonderful.

We were having fun playing when suddenly there are thunders and the clouds rolled in.

……

A greener world after the rain, is what I love most about the rainy season…

🙂

It is Allah Who sends the winds which stir up clouds which He spreads about the sky however He wills. He forms them into dark clumps and you see the rain come pouring out from the middle of them. When He makes it fall on those of His servants He wills, they rejoice. (Qur’an, 30:48)

Cee’s Photo Challenge: Girls In Pink

Being the only daughter made me realize how fortunate those who have sisters. However, I still think I am blessed, because God gave me a daughter. Even now, I always say that she’s not just my lovely daughter, but she’s also a sister and a best friend for me. 🙂

Although my daughter is the only child, but having two cousin sisters is just as lovely as having our own sisters.

Thankfully, my nieces don’t live far from where we stay. We often visit each other to play and travel.

Although they often fight over everything, when far away they always misses each other. I know they love one another.

Having a fun time is never as fun as when having your cousin sisters around.

I hope they’d be best friends forever.. 😀
