Selamat ulang tahun untukku!


This day started with a debate in my family group about whether it was already June 10 or not in the States. I read the discussion with a smile growing in my face.

One year has passed by after the last birthday that I celebrated with my loved ones back then in Jakarta, Indonesia.

And here I am in a completely different world and culture, studying and learning many new interesting things from the U.S. people and its environment.

One year that teaches me something about several things including the power of doing the talk, visioning things, letting go and believing magical things happen to those who have faith in it.

So here are the magical things happening in the U.S. for this one year:

1. Skiing in Eldora Mountain, Colorado and hiking in Boulder with Noor and Paulus

2. Watching the performance of Cirque du Soleil at San Francisco, California, which has been one of my dreams for a long time ago, with a Russian friend, Zamira

3. Going to New York City (Big Apple!) including staying at Queens, visiting Guggenheim and Museum of the Modern Arts, visiting New York Times and walking around Broadways blocks and eating tasty NY pizza with Tyas and Naura
