On the 29th of February we celebrated Rahma’s Birthday. Rahma turned into 13 so we decided to throw a traditional Indonesian Birthday party for her unique day. In the Indonesian culture, it is common to eat Nasi Kuning (Yellow Rice) at a Birthday party, instead of a cake. Nasi Kuning turns yellow because of the spices it is being cooked with and it is usually served with chicken, tempe, spicy eggs etc. Enak!
All Rahma’s friends from school were invited to join us, at the IHF Jakarta.The children were listening to music and playing hide and seek, while the food was being prepared. After having our delicious lunch, we all gathered in the garden to enjoy the sunny day and talk about friendship and school. All in all, it was a great day celebrating a great young lady.
We wish Rahma to stay as beautiful and smiley as she is now, to get all she wishes for and succeed all her goals in her future and always be loved by all the people that surround her!
