"Oh guys, you are my besties. Now I know what to answer when someone asks who my best friends are..."- Michael Yuruzoomzoom
I will definitely miss those times we spend together. Those times when we walk home together, when we walk with our bicycles. When we all do those crazy stuffs such as casually picking persimmon fruits from the tree. When we heard great news of Fanny getting engaged or when Kia's boyfriend is coming to town. Those times of us insulting each other with embarrassing pictures that have always been kept in each others' phone. Times of fun outing, great parties. Times of us. I will definitely miss those by the end of this program.
Oh God, I surely do love these guys. I know we are a lot different. We all have different nationalities, religions, skin colors, races, backgrounds, almost everything. But suddenly, we were bonded together. We feel this invisible connection amid this whole diversities. Thank you God, for letting me know these lovely friends…

Morning (Self) Walk

Good Morning!
This morning I was planning to go on a jogging with my senior when suddenly she told me that she needed to cancel it. But well, since I had wanted to go on a morning walk since yesterday, I decided to go alone. Let me tell you one thing, it was a great morning walk. I went to places I've never been before and saw many things; since it was still early that the road was sort of empty until it was nearly the working hour that everyone seemed to rush in order to be able to catch the train on the station. Oh, life. Routines.

You know, sometimes you need time to walk around by yourself, to realize things you didn't before. At that kind of time, I usually contemplate, think about things I've done in my life and things I'd like to do in life. Somehow, it makes me feel peaceful and relaxed. I really love it.

Wajar Saja

Assalamualaikum wr. wb.
Om saya pernah bercerita tentang teman beliau yang dulu disekolahkan oleh pemerintah Indonesia ke Jerman. Sebut saja Pak X. Pak X dibiayai oleh pemerintah untuk bersekolah di Jerman, dengan jurusan teknik sayap pesawat. Setelah menyelesaikan studinya di Jerman dengan cemerlang, Pak X pun kembali ke Indonesia dengan harapan bisa membangun negerinya melalui ilmu yang sudah beliau dapatkan selama bersekolah di luar negeri. Ilmu yang sangat bermanfaat karena bisa menyokong industri pesawat terbang di Indonesia. Bisa jadi ilmu tersebut dapat memperbaiki produksi pesawat terbang lokal, sehingga Indonesia tidak perlu lagi mengimpor pesawat dari luar negeri. Akan tetapi, setelah menyelesaikan studi dan kembali ke Indonesia serta diterima untuk bekerja di badan usaha pesawat terbang negara, beliau justru diberi sebuah ruang kantor; berisi meja dan kursi. Mungkin beliau diminta mengerjakan masalah administrasi (?) karena dianggap karyawan baru (?).Tidak ada laboratorium…

Do Not Read This

Basically these are just several unimportant sentences that came up on my mind since I came to Japan.
However, I don't feel like posting them on Twitter nor Facebook although these might be suitable for those social sites. I'm just not that kind of person.

"That moment when you're so used to drinking tap water that when you're doing wudhu with tap water it feels like you're having wudhu with water for drinking."

"That moment when it's extremely cold that you want to take a shower only because the shower's water temprature could reach up to 40c or more."

"That monent when you slow down your bike even on flat roads not because you're tired but because it's freaking cold that you can not even bear the wind."

"Betapapun sebuah tulisan atau status atau tweet memiliki makna yang sangat baik dan bermanfaat, kalau disertai dengan kata-kata kasar, meski tujuannya for emphasizing things, bagi saya nilainya sangat buruk."…

What I've Been Doing After The Yosakoi Festival Long... Long Ago

Assalamualaikum wr. wb.

October 11th, 2012. I went to a small mochi store near my dorm. I was with Charlie and Mariko :D We ate several kind of mochi (red bean, shoyu, and sesame) and got a free Sendai-special zunda mochi! It was fun :)

October 14th, 2012. Zuihoden! It was one of several tourism spots in Sendai. Zuihoden is the place of Masamune Date's Mausoleum. I went with Intan, Mariko, Mio-san, Bin, and Hong. It was fun :) I even had a chance to hold a Japanese traditional instrument and watch the show! It was a special event held only on that day. Cool :')
