Tempur is the name of a village at the hillside of Gunung Muria (Mount Muria), not too far from the city of Jepara. It boasts one of the most beautiful natural view I've ever seen!

I had fun playing with fresh cool water in it's mountain river :)

Eid Mubarak!

Taqabbalallâhu minnâ wa minkum
May Allah accept from us and you (our fasts and deeds)

I had a chance to visit the Great Demak Mosque (Masjid Agung Demak) on the way to my husband's hometown. It is one of the historical and oldest mosques in Indonesia, you could feel its rich culture.

Since it's forbidden to take pictures inside the mosque, I could only take some snapshots of the exterior.

for the teachers

I decided to make (very simple) bags for my kids' teachers. They're actually made from tea towel I bought at IKEA, I really love the colors and motives so I kinda hacked and used them as fabric material instead.

I didn't put any lining inside so the bag came out more like a foldable roomy shopping bag. I didn't put any embroidery or embellishments either since I couldn't find any that suit both my preference and my kids'. But I think it turned out nice - simple yet nice. Hopefully the teachers will have some good use to it :)
