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

The First 365 Days

Dearest husband,  Hari ini, 365 hari yang lalu, aku tak lagi tanggungjawab ayahku. Namun beralih ketanganmu, suamiku. Satu tahun pertama, membawa tantangan yang luar biasa edan. Kata orang, tahun pertama adalah tahun yang rawan. Bisa dibilang, tahun penyesuaian. Makin lama makin banyak sifat yang muncul. Banyak gesekan, banyak selisih paham, banyak perbedaan. Hingga terbesit pertanyaan, Apakah kita bisa bertahan? Memang benar apa kata orang, pernikahan ibarat kapal ditengah lautan. Kadang badai menerjang, kadang pula lautan tenang. Banyak berselisih paham bukan berarti tak sayang. Semakin lama semakin membuat kita paham. Apa dan bagaimana arti serta kemauan pasangan. Tak ringan tentu saja. Ibarat kata, ini nano-nano. Rame rasanya. Manis, pedes, asem, gurih, asin, tawa, canda, air mata, semuanya jadi satu. Kompromi menjadi satu hal penting dalam hal ini. Kadang dia yang mengalah, kadang pula aku yang mengalah. Aku bukanlah istri yang sempurna untukmu sayang. Aku tidak bis

Watch Your Mouth People!

  mungkin lebih cocok kalau ganti mouth dengan finger Now since we live in 'social media' life, everything can be exposed online whether you like it or not. We can't deny that social media take part in our lives. And most people love to 'share' their life on social media. Some people share even the detail of their lives but some are use it only for fun or limited. The thing is, when everything are exposed, it means indirectly you give 'permission' to them to criticize your life or let them leave comment on your life. And most problems coming from irresponsible people who doesn't even watch their mouth. Few months ago, a rubbish online media misused my picture with H for something that wasn't even our own story. They use it for unrelated picture and story. Apparently the story was about Indonesian girl (TKI) screwed a white guy, got pregnant, but married her Indonesian husband to cover it up. They blurred the picture, so it make us like the

Although I am not that close with tho who died, I can feel their lost. The other happy news was two best friends of mine are getting pregnant in same time. It's great to know it. The other one was having her second, and the other one was having her first since she got married last month. Great for them 😊

Unexpected Layover In Brunei

So, canceled our flight back from Bangkok to Denpasar with Thai Airways, then try to find other flight back with reasonable price. I remembered that I was browsing for Royal Brunei before I fly to Bangkok and the price is the cheapest one among other airlines. We can’t really say this is a budget airlines but also not as great as other airlines. It was ok, almost same like GA without movie screen. So it’s like in the middle. We found one flight (apparently they have their own flying schedule) from Bangkok to Denpasar on 9 January (we planned to get back on 8 Jan) with layover in Brunei for 4 hours. I read about layover in Brunei and it seems that we can see the city for 2 hours. So let me tell you, Brunei airport is small. I need less than 20 mins to get out from airplane until immigration. Literally get out to the taxi spot. The immigration staff was the friendliest for me. He asked me where to stay in Brunei because I didn’t write any and I told him that I just trans
