di int'l students dorm ini, seperti di tempat lainnya, banyak menyimpan cerita cinta.
love stories, crushes, or whatever it is, always intrigue people.
I found many lovers here.
and each of them has different story, background and style.
each of it has its own uniqueness, like the person itself.
let's call her A.
she is in the long distance relationship with her prince charming. a thousand miles away from each other, with thousand faith, smiles, struggles and tears. I can see how A loves him. because each month, A always prepare for the most breath-taking surprise and gift for her boyfriend far way there. no matter how hard it is to contact him. and do you know, she's the shiniest star here in this university, everybody proud of her; from the chairman of SIAS, until the unknown stranger. she's so beautiful and lovely, everybody loves her. ahh,, he should not make her cry. she is one of the most faithful girl I ever know.
and I know B.
again, long-distance relationship. but daily texts, calls, and internet chat cannot guarantee that everything's gonna be alright. there's a love, there's a problem. still I can see her with tears on her face because of him. who said long distance is easy?
let's move to another room, and there lives C.
this girl, fall in love with the boy-next-door, D.
C and D are from different countries. but love crosses boundaries. they know that sooner or later, they will go back to their own countries. maybe not going to see each other anymore. but still, they keep their love alive. "until time do us apart" ?
whatever love story you have right now, whether it's in pain, despair, struggle, blossom, or anything,, just make your heart stronger.
oktober kemarin, aku dan temen-temen sekamarku di dorm (Meerim-Kyrgistan, Rizkya-Indonesia, Diksha-Nepal), anak kamar sebelah (Fahri-Indonesia), serta satu orang "tumbal", anak cina yang berhati besar, sangat sabar, tapi asik banget diajak jalan-jalan, bernama Zheng.
total perjalanan 3 hari 4 malam, ini baru travelling yang benar-benar in a rush.
beijing is a totally huge city, man! and it has many many interesting places to travel as well as shopping. tapi berhubung time and cost constraint, maka perjalanan kit apun diselenggarakan dengan cara seksama dalam tempo yang sesingkat-singkatnya. merdeka!!
first step: nunggu bis dari kampus SIAS ke kota kota (Zhengzhou)
di kereta ke tujuan beijing, main UNO!
peta. buku lonely planet. mengatur strategi di atas kereta.
beijing hutong (gang kecil), salah satu beijing specialty.
turun dari kereta, langsung meluncur ke lapangan Tian An Men.
one of the best self-taken photo that I've ever seen. the angle and our smiles, checked!
dari Tian An Men, pegang peta, mau masuk ke Forbidden City. giddy!
Forbidden City, Kota Terlarang, Gugong. 3 names, one same great place.
seorang kakek tua yang menulis kaligrafi cina dengan kuas besar dan air, di atas lantai. cool!
family picture di Bei Hai Yuan. 3 persons, 3 personalities, 3 uniqueness.
off to Beijing Zoo! betah banget nongkrong di sini. :3
lagi-lagi, self-taken picture yang oke, nonton panda.
great friends, great picture, great fun, Great Wall!
saya & tembok besar cina.
pagi dingin yang berkabut, diam-diam kabur sendiri, pergi ke Olympic Area...
...cuma buat foto sama si Sangkar Burung ini!
di kereta pulang dari Great Wall, ke Beijing kota.
transportasi penting selama berkeliaran di beijing: kereta bawah tanah a.k.a metro a.k.a subway a.k.a di tie
di Summer Palace, atau Istana Musim Panas.
lihat pagoda tinggi de belakang itu? ikon Summer Palace. naik ke atas situ, yuk!
di gerbang dekat puncak menara pagoda Summer Palace. manjat tinggi pun nggak masalah.
lorong di halaman dalam Summer Palace, di depan danau. lihat itu di langit-langit nya, tiap lukisan menceritakan cerita rakyat cina.
another pose :D
melangkahkan kaki di dalam area istana musim panas, Summer Palace yang megah.
bye-bye, beijing.. terima kasih sudah memberi pengalaman yang tak terlupakan untuk kami berenam ;*
it's been 8 months I've spent all my days in china.
I never thought I'll be having this much of progress of myself - and differences.
many things I've learned, outside and inside of the class.
many persons I've met, and each of them teaches me different lessons.
many things I've passed, happy and sad, and also something in between.
I found my family here; the crazy-yet-sweet family of international students. the experience of live together under one roof with people from different country gives me real new things. the happiness, the jokes, the laughs, the life-problems, the fights.. I love them.
and another part of my family here is my amazingly talented skating friends.
the time I practice my motions, the laughs, the falls and pain, the music, the energy.. it's all irreplaceable.
I'm glad that I have a chance to meet all of them, including all the teachers and SIAS' chairman and leaders, to learn many things from them; learn how to study well, the beautiful motions of skating, the persistence and consistence, how to love and let go, and anything..
life is a journey.
indeed we supposed to be better and even better on each of our steps.
and if we fall into a failure, how deep it is, we know we can always find our own strength to get stronger than ever.
seems like it's just yesterday the first time I breath the air of china.
but when I look back, I realize that I only have less than 2 months to stay in this magical new land.
