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

Magical Places I Would Love To Come Back Again and Again

 

So far, there are three magical places that I would love to come back again and again. I thought they wouldn't be that special but I was wrong. They are :

Bromo


First time I went to Bromo was 5 years ago (I think) with my Korean friend and it was my birthday present lol. At that time Bromo look so stunning for me although it was a real hard work for me to reach the top of it. I know I am not a big fan of climbing the mountain (although Bromo has stairs there to reach the top, how lazy I am). Going to the top of mountain always tiring and was always give me feeling "Don't climb. You gonna be so tired". But it's all paid off when you reach the top. Waiting for the sunrise always challenging. It is always freezing cold, always crowded during a special ceremony, but again it will be paid off when you see the sun rising and see the villages down there. Whenever I met people who came from countries with 4 seasons, they said "It is cold Pris but not that cold". F*ck you dude! I cant feel my legs.

 
rindu bromo dan ingin mengunjunginya lagi

Ubud

 

Another magical place that I am in love with is Ubud. Definitely the land of the gods. A long time ago I wonder why people love to go back to Bali. Bali is a real mainstream island that I don't think I would come back because it is too mainstream. Oh well oh well I was wrong. I was there last time for a month and it was so great. And another month after that it always calls me back lol. Unfortunately, the seafood prices are still higher than Bangkok lol. But Ubud will always be my "home".

 

Istanbul

 

 
meskipun komposisi ga pas, pantat mereka kepotong, yasudahlah. kusuka tapi kecewa sama jepretan sendiri hmmm 

Istanbul is the real magic. Somehow, it dragged me back to thousand years ago where the byzantine conquers this city for so long. At first, I have no idea that it could be this magical. I went there to see my parents in law. I didn't expect it will be this magical for me. I was so excited to go there to see my parents in law but wasn't that excited about the city. At all. And especially after the airport mess (believe me this airport sucks), long line in immigration and mine took longer than other people (guess because so many Indonesians went to Syria from Istanbul), I wasn't really in the mood. But the moment I leave the airport, OMG! And when we stroll around the old city that evening to find some food for dinner, I knew that this city stole my heart. And so many cats, the nicest to the worse, the thin to the fat ones, the small to the big ones, they are all there. We spent almost 2 weeks there and I just love it. It is magical especially Hagia Sophia. Man this place is so 😍 A great building that witness the great time.



Those places always calling me to go back again and again. The list might goes on... but so far these three are magical. How about you?

  1. My magical places I'd like to always come back... My bed. Hahahhaah :D
    I like to travel but I don't travel much. Mostly because I'm too scared to travel alone. Haha. Tapi terakhir aku sempet kabur dari rumah ke Bali hahahah sampe di sana tengah malem.. oke abis itu bingung keluar dari airport gimana.

Ujian hari senin

Kejadian ini terjadi tepat senin minggu lalu. Baru kali itu aku merasa 'WOW.. ini senin yeay'. Karena biasanya 'haduhh udah senen lagi'. Kebayang kan kalo seneng begitu dihari senen menyambut pagi dan hari itu rasanya langka banget. Otomatis pengennya hari itu berlangsung indah. Jam setengah 9 pagi, seperti biasa ke pantry ambil minum bareng sama temen sebangku. Dia bikin teh, aku nyuci botol sekalian ngisi dong. Seperti biasa juga, kadang aku males sih nyuci botol dengan ritual lengkapnya, akhirnya cuman bilas pake air panas. Ya mungkin nggak sampe 50 ml juga. Dikit banget deh. Temen juga selalu bersihin gitu gelasnya pake air panas. Pic source is here Eh lakok lakok... si bapak pantry yang serem itu tiba-tiba bilang 'Gak bisa ya gak nyuci botol pake air panas? Tiap sore itu banyak komplain gara-gara airnya abis'. Yakaliii air abis tinggal isi aja, ibu yang dulu aja nggak pernah ada komplain. Ya aku bilang lah ini cuman dikit, lagian yang ngelakuin ini

Jumat ceria

Hari ini memang bukan hari jumat, tapi cuman mau bilang aja sih kalo hari yang paling aku tunggu-tunggu itu hari jumat. Why?   Karena jumat itu selalu ceria, kalopun ada meeting besar pasti di hari jumat dan banyak cemilan, orang-orang pada berangkat sholat jumat, yang nasrani juga mengikuti misa di kantor, bisa pake baju bebas dan bebas berekspresi sepuas-puasnya, dan..... bisa video call sepuasnyaaaaaa kapanpun karena dia libur kerja 😍😍 gambarnya lucu 😁  taken from internet

Sudah Vaksin Covid Lengkap

Sei sapi yang kucintai Yes, it's my biggest flex this year.  Setelah vaksin pertama akhir Mei kemarin, akhirnya gw udah dapet suntikan kedua tanggal 21 Agustus 2021. Cantik kan tanggalnya?  Masih di RS yang sama, Surya Husadha, kali ini gw berangkat pagi. Yaa... 15 menit lebih pagi daripada vaksin pertama 😬 Karena gw ketiduran, seperti biasa. Hari itu hari sabtu, memang sengaja milih akhir pekan waktu vaksin pertama. Kita nggak tau efeknya bakalan gimana kan.  Vaksin pertama gw bisa bilang hampir ga ada efek apapun sih. Cuma ke UGD aja hari ketiga karena asam lambung naik banget. Setelah gw inget-inget, gw emang nggak banyak makan setelah vaksin malah gegoleran dan kata dokternya "Kalau abis vaksin tuh makan mbak yang banyak, protein yang banyak, jangan malah ga makan. Jadinya asam lambung naik kan?" Yasudah abis disuntik ranitidin, sejam juga gw udah mendingan.  Jadi gw bertekad "Ok setelah vaksin kedua, gw harus makan yang banyak!!!" Setelah gw datang di RS,
