About

HI!

Welcome to my blog 🙂  I used to blog at http://www.followingflo.blogspot.com.  However, I decided to change to wordpress and start over 🙂

I pin 🙂  Take a peek, you may find an idea or two :- ) 

Visit Flo, The Immigrant Mommy’s profile on Pinterest.

This blog is about my life journey in America.

I came to America as an exchange student 20 years ago. Then I went to college, went back home for few years until my husband asked me to marry him.  I came back and  a few years ago, my husband  and I became United States’ citizens. I founded a music studio over 10 years ago and continued to enjoy every child and family that came through the door.

In 2009, I decided to go back to school full time to become a speech language pathologist. I am currently a 3rd year Ph.D student. I don’t know how God trusted me with the honor to become the first Indonesian to hold such a degree. Read the story here

I enjoy cooking, baking, making crazy cakes for my children and friends, watching good movies and reading.

Life is never dull in our household.  We are blessed that God entrusted 3 precious little munchkins to us.  Juggling all these balls makes our life interesting, crazy and exciting… But above all it makes me realized how much I need God’s mercy and grace daily….

I hope to share our lives with you so we can learn from each other on how to live in America. Balancing our heritage and our new culture.

Raising our little American kiddos and equip them to be socially competent in America while maintaining our cultural heritage.

So welcome to our lives…. I hope that you can come and visit often…. so we can share our experiences and learn from each other….

  2. Looking forward to reading your blog. I am the definition of an immigrant…Born in the BVI moved to Canada at age 1 (baby immigrant). Moved to Bermuda where I met my husband and had a daughter (still an immigrant). Then moved to the US in 2013…got my green card on July 1st.

  3. I think your title is excellent. It tells the reader what you are blogging about. As a children’s writer,
    I’m always looking for children to give feedback on our stories.
    Blessings for 2014!
