Happy Independence Day, Indonesia

The campus orientation week started earlier this week. We had some meetings, games, barbeques, and today is another game called "Trondheim Games". We were given some challenges, questions, checkpoints, in which if we can answer the questions, challenges and find the check points we will get points for our team. It was really fun! But, the highlight of today was meeting with other Indonesian families here in Trondheim and celebrating our Independence Day. We went to Kristiansen Fort and then the famous Gamle Bybro and took family pictures!

Another extra highlight, congratulations for Indonesian Mixed Doubles Badminton in Rio Olympics for giving Indonesia first gold medal in the 2016 olympics just right at our Independence Day! Best gift!

Hello from Trondheim!

Checking in from Trondheim, Norway. I arrived a few days ago, and since then it has been cloudy and rainy and windy. But today (in a late summer) it's sunny all day. Me and my friends decided to stroll around campus and up to a nearby lake. On the walks, tt hits me on how lucky I am to be here. The sceneries are (well, so far) a feast to my eyes. It's really something that I thought I'd only see in books. Hoping for a great journey ahead!

Lately our new hangout includes bringing paper, pen, watercolor paints, brushes, and board games. Yesterday, we spent the afternoon drawing and me sort-of-teaching calligraphy. Haven't been a good teacher as I forgot the basic strokes and I really don't know how to teach. But well, it was a fruitful and fun hangout.

And today I manage to sketch out a couple things, that might follow up to something. C'mon strong-will and dedication, kinda need you. Ha!

The Remedies

It was quite not the ordinary day. Fluctuations. Mood swings. All because of fail plans. We, humans, should not make any plans at all, shouldn't we?

Then I remember this one song. Listening to it, I felt better. Then I remember another cure for my mood, calligraphy practice.

So to share a little bit of my happiness, and to know that you're not alone surviving in this world. I present you, this.

Pinch Me..

... Cause I might be dreaming. Pop Etc's soundcloud account just "loved" a cover of their song that I did probably a year ago. And why am I making such a big deal? Because, IT IS
Okay, getting back to a big grin for the day!

Trip to Denmark

First thing first, this is a long overdue post. The trip itself was from May 19 to June 12. I just finally made myself to spend the time to select pictures to post here. And it was quite a challenge, picking which pictures that could represent from thousands of pictures I took over the 3 weeks. The city was beautifully breathtaking. The cityscape, the people, the weather. Everything's just right. With a country that speaks very well english and also with very helpful people, it's really an ease for a foreigner like me to get around the city so easily.

The opportunity/ I was sent by the office to join a 3 week training course on Green Energy and Low Carbon Development Plan. Sounds pretty fancy, huh? It was a new thing and an interesting thing. The course itself was funded and organised by Danida and UNEP Riso Center. There are 16 people on the course, 8 from Indonesia, and the other 8 diverse from Pakistan, Egypt, Colombia, Kenya, and Burkina Faso. I get to meet these people from across the world, countries I can only imagine on maps.

Denmark/ My three week down there, I experienced all sort of weather. Even when it's approaching summer, it's still not yet real summer yet. There are days that are warm, chilly, windy, sunny, cloudy, foggy, almost everything (except snow, of course). The city is basically packed in the central Copenhagen. Getting around is very easy, with the Metro, Bus Line, Train line, and even pedestrian walk is nicely planned.
