It’s more than just a word, it’s a feeling captured from time to time. Oh ya, please feel free to give me feedback for the English as well as the content.

[thought] limit and realization

Today I canceled my appointment that I made for a long time. To be honest, this unexpected situation made the reason was just liked a small thing, but actually at the last moment, It made me realize that it wasn’t the place I feel to belong with…

After few steps back, I sat in front of the IB (International Building) alone, not so much people there. There wasn’t crowd-puller or euphoria because of graduation anymore. It was just me and bizarre wind. The question was “why did I do this?”, Continue reading

[story] adventures in russia-Part 3: The journey to reach Omsk

4. Finding the Right Train

Waiting Room at Novosibirsk Railway Station

I realize the path I took to the Omsk was a bit dangerous, especially when you are not able to communicate with others, no sign in English you can follow, and rarely, you find someone who can help you.

3. Unpredictable situations, take a high risk

ruble

After I landed at Novosibirsk, Russia, the first thing pop up in my mind was I needed to change my money to ruble right away and took a bus into the Omsk rail station.

They only serve dollar or euro to be changed into rubble. Continue reading

Sedikit kembali ke masalalu, setelah saya merasakan kegagalan saat apply beasiswa INPEX 2010 saya pun mulai lebih jeli melihat peluang study abroad yang lainnya. Continue reading
