You see the changes in things that come
It's how you deal with it
Make a decision, a precondition
We got the choice if it all goes wrong
We walk, we walk, we walk, we walk

Another Way To Describe Indonesia

I've just checked out one of my favourite travel websites, Travelettes, and I found these very beautiful photos of our beloved country that taken by Hengki Koentjoro . You can see at the first glance that they certainly are a gorgeous way to see another breathtaking view of Indonesia. So, please can you tell me some words to describe it? Because I find it hard to describe the admiration one feels upon seeing these photographs.

You have to be your best friend. And I was lucky to become my very best friend. That gave me so much strength. No matter what happens - the ups, the downs, the this, the that - I'm always with me.

Worth The Wait :)

I kept this post as a draft for several months since I got the final approval on my postgraduate application in Bournemouth University. I decided not to post it until I get the good news on the scholarship application. Well, I'm one of those people who can't easily make a quick decision to study abroad with my own money. I make the visibility even more difficult when I choose UK, one of the top countries with the highest cost of living, as my study destination. Hence, my plan to study abroad this year pretty much depends on the scholarship.

I don't know if it just happens on me, but it takes a long time and requires a lot of patience to get to the finish line. Over the past six months I've been struggling to fill my days with only consisted of catching up on the plan to get a master's degree this year. It becomes harder with plenty of downfalls I've been through. If I didn't encourage myself to not throw a monkey wrench right into the middle of what I'm trying to accomplish, it's really easy to kill my focus and ruin all the plans.

Now I arrive at the finish line and prepare to make a fresh start in life. Alhamdulillah, I'm so grateful for all the sacrifices I've made. Somehow, it reminded me how every rain will eventually pass and I just gotta keep on going whenever my path gets complex. Bismillah for the new life ahead :)

It (Seems Like) The Hogwarts Express

Before you expect -and before you even begin trying to expect- to see a piece of Hogwarts Express in this post, I should tell you that I've never ridden it. But it doesn't mean either that I'm tricking you with the title. I did actually ride the train, the fancy one. It's named "kereta wisata Toraja". A quick glance around the aisle of the train will remind you a bit of the Hogwarts Express. At least, it was my sister's opinion and mine. The train was exclusively made for tourist or people who want to have a different way to enjoy the trip from Jakarta to Purwokerto.

The name of the train doesn't mean anything to Toraja except for the train's decoration that indicates Toraja's culture with its unique patterns hanging around the train. Because both train destination and service itself are not related to it. Despite the fact that it only has one room which is filled with a table and two comfortable couches (yeah, they should add more rooms), the rest of the things in Toraja Train like a mini bar, a television and 22 seats for other passangers, satisfy me. The five hours trip was great and everyone's all full of excitement about it.

Three More Months

Another month has passed and now we're nearly halfway through the year. I can say that June is one of the most important months for me because there are some meaningful announcements in this month. That's why now I'm filled with a mixture of anxiety and excitement. My excitement needs to learn how to not fly too high because sometimes things happen to people and they're not equipped to deal with them. Instead of worrying too much about those uncertain things, I try to see the brighter side of June. Hopefully it can give me more sunshine and colors.
