[story] the rooftop dancer-part 1; crossroad


unforgettable moments with my student. never my “little” students were so excited.

This dream started when I got a chance to have cultural internship in Omsk, Russia. I went there alone to taste amazing adventure on my very first winter, imagine my excitement back then. Not all people was given a chance to teach English for Elementary, Junior and Senior high school students as well as became an youth ambassador and  guest speaker at Russian television, twice. Huge opportunity to do cultural awareness campaign and introduce Indonesian culture throughout Russia. Too bad I didn’t have chance to visit Indonesian embassy that time.

[hobby] The Alchemist; Introduction


“The mere possibility of getting what we want fills the soul of the ordinary person with guilt. We look around at all those who have failed to get what they want and feel that we do not deserve to get what we want either. We forget about all the obstacles we overcame, all the suffering we endured, all the things we had to give up in order to get this far.”

Years ago, I got this book as a present. It took me almost 4 years to finally I read it this afternoon. “i wish for some inspiration” I said. So I randomly picked a book to accompany my afternoon tea. Glad it’s The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho. If you wish for some wisdom and inspiration,this book worth to read for sure.  Here’s the introduction of the book as its 10th anniversary edition. I thought, I should share it to you, all.
