The Reward of Teaching

Buku belajar Bahasa Indonesia dalam berbagai bahasa. I've become a teacher since semester 9. That being said, my teaching journey started in 2013. Took hiatus for 2 something years then I came back to these exam sheets, students, books, and social interactions. Didn't even want to become one but I fell in love right after I jumped in.  I guess I need to ask to apologize to my dad. I was mad at him a long time ago because he asked me to be one lol. Well, maybe I just didn't like the idea of being a teacher in a class where your students don't even care about you telling stuff in front of the class. That actually made me realize that I prefer to teach whoever wants to learn. Although sometimes I just need to teach without knowing what's their reasons to learn, and that is also fine. I do what I had to do. That is why I hate grading because I don't mind giving them a perfect score but what's the point if they know nothing after the course ended? I never teach a

Finding The Sun in Borobudur

 

We made plan to see the sunrise in Borobudur. Well.. Sunrise always good for making photos. Since we didn't stay in Manohara hotel which is FULLY BOOKED, we plan to join the sunrise borobudur next morning through this gate. Including ticket from this hotel.

The price for sunrise is quiet expensive than the normal one. I think it is always like that right?



We planned to wake up early, around 4 to get the Manohara entrance. Those guys are not morning people, but they have to wake up for the sunrise.

At 4 am in the morning, we met in front of our room and then we walked to Manohara hotel (about 10mins walk). Not so many people there (but the hotels are fully booked!), maybe because we came too early. Queue up to get the ticket, and the staff asked me 'Are you still Indonesian?, marrying foreigner doesn't mean make me automatically become foreigner huh!

So I paid Indonesian price for me, and he paid for foreigner price. We bought some snacks and tea/coffee to warm up the body, then we got the torch and then we go to climb the temple. After 15 mins on top of the temple, a lot of people coming.




tik tok tik tok tik tok..... at 6 am and the sun not coming yet. Where the hell the sun is???

Then HJ said that you have to wait at least till 6.30 or 7 to get some good photos because the mist will always be there. Okay we wait for awhile. Looking around the temple, try to digest what is the meaning of the relief there although for me it's like 'hmmm apa ya iniiii?', but still ok. I like it.

Flavio and his gf going down first to get the snacks and coffee that are provided from the hotel (ticket). Then his gf back to our hotel since she felt something wrong with her body. Well.. it can happen for pregnant women. And Flavio back to Borobudur while HJ and I tried to capture in some spots. We got some good photos and we walked down for the snacks. Flavio follow us after.





Well... for me, I love temples. Temples are always cute. Ok cute here on my own definition. The temples are magic, you know. Like Something magical that always make me think, 'how could they built something like this? how to put the stones here?', and many other questions.

But for Borobudur, it is good to come and see it at least once in your life. So stunning with the combination of stones and sun. But, this is always be the main destination for travelers, or for students who are on holiday. I remember, this also become our destination when I was at 6 grade. Like I said, after 7 am, this temple is gone. I mean, what will you see isn't the stones or the temple, but the students or little kids who try to take selfie in the top of temple haha!

Good to wake up early huh?

all photos are taken by me

Dapet Visa UAE (Dubai) Gampang Banget

Dubai creek Beberapa waktu yang lalu, kita pusing berat karena H dapet libur kali ini cuman 10 hari. 10 hari dari yang biasanya 14 hari. Akhrinya diputuskan untuk tetap mengambil libur tapi nggak ke Indonesia.  Ternyata, beberapa hari kemudian, dia bilang, kalau liburnya malah jadi 7-8 hari aja. Mau ga mau saya yang harus kesana. Maksudnya terbang mendekatinya. Udah milih-milih negara mana yang harganya rasional, yang ga banyak makan waktu buat terbangnya H, dan tentunya ga ribet urus visa buat pemegang paspor hijau yang ga sesakti paspornya H.  Btw warna paspor Indonesia jadi biru ya sekarang?? Pilihan jatuh ke Dubai. Pemegang paspor hijau harus bikin visa, ya pusing lagi deh cara bikin visa Dubai nih gimana. Apa iya sesusah bikin visa schengen, visa US, visa lainnya. dari persyaratan sih standar ya, termasuk  record  bank account selama 3 bulan. Emang nggak pernah bikin visa Dubai sebelumnya ya, apalagi H yang paspornya super sakti kemana-mana (hampir) ga perlu visa, dia ga pernah ad

Catatan Kuliah (6) : Masuk bareng, keluar bareng (?)

Sanur Sebagai mahasiswa yang masih belum mengenal kerasnya kehidupan kala itu, kita berikrar "Kita masuk bareng kita juga harus keluar bareng." Naif? Iya tentu. Maklumin aja namanya juga mahasiswa baru kan. Maunya yang  flawless  terus. Tapi apa salahnya sih berdoa baik kali aja malaikat mengamini lol.  Ternyata, kenyataannya, tentu saja tidak. Iya kalau semua  setting  nya  default  semua mahasiswa tidak ada kesulitan yang berarti, dosen nggak resek, mahasiswa juga nggak resek, data nggak resek, pasti lulus bareng kita. Kehidupan perkuliahan keras di akhir hahaha Gw dari awal masuk kampus ngerasa kalo gw nggak akan lulus tepat waktu. Aneh ya, harusnya orang mikir lulus tepat waktu tapi gw udah ada feeling. Dan gw berusaha keras buat nggak terlalu jatuh dalam angka. Ya maksudnyaaaa karena gw anak minor komputasi jadi gw udah bisa tebak lah data yang gw pake pasti agak makan waktu. Jadi  range  kelulusan adalah 7 semester, 8 semester, 9 semester, diatas 9 semester. Temen gw ya
