Recent Life

Dear Blogwalkers,

I'm sorry these days i'm too busy for blogging.
Since May, which is the last time i post something in this blog, I'm so busy to study for my mid-term exams and beside that, i also apply so many programs and competitions outside. The results & fruitions are in upcoming days. Recently, i'm too busy for my part-time job, i'm working as creative writer in one of the education company here in Jakarta. Few days ago, i also apply for some scholarships. Well, i did get some bad results, which is i'm not accepted to join the programs. but there are few programs which accept me as well..that's the thing i called "what goes around comes back around" ! I will still hold my motto of life "Never Give Up" and "Keep Learning" !! I have to reach my dreams whatever happens, i'm doin my best for my families and my princess in Japan as well..
Things seem to be impossible, but i believe the word itselves said "I'm possible" , and we never know if we never try it, so at least i have to try and keep my best to reach it :)
Anyway, i gonna post old things around in the future. When i exchange to Thailand, doing short course in the Philippines, and yeah travel around Singapore. I just need time to refresh for it, too many things keep me lazy doing these things. But promise is a promise, i'm going to keep my words for you !! I just have to find a right time :)

See you later, i'm gonna continue my work again ! :)

Best Regards,
Yos Steven

Short Trip to Singapore

Hello Buddies ^_^
I went to Singapore for 3 days, and i wanna share my experiences after the trip.
Actually, I have been to Singapore so many times since i were child.. maybe it's my tenth, or maybe more.. i don't count it already.. and it's quite rare for Indonesian to go that often, so i called myself really lucky.
For me, Singapore is really a beautiful country that was really liveable as well in ASEAN !! i mean, if you compare to any other capital city in ASEAN, maybe i'll choose Singapore, everywhere the Human Resources has professional quality, eventhough when they can't give you the best services ever they tried the best to keep their proffesionalism.
And for the Public Transportation, it's all depend your choices and budget, since they have so many choices starts from Bus,Taxi,MRT,etc..
The City is very clean and supporting GO GREEN as well, so many plants and trees everywhere in the town,city,places.. Skyscrapper is everywhere, start from the apartment for the societies, the Business tower for working places, until Hotel , where the Tourist stay in !!
Everybody were quite friendly, depend on who you met, and they are really pay attention to the country's regulations. Everything in Singapore can be reconsider Expensive if i compared it to my own country's things. I bought Merlion Chocolates for about 20S$ , so it's about 160.000 IDR, and that's truly expensive for Chocolate size.
Anyway, for the language.. Mainly, Peoples speak English but if they are Chinese, they prefer to speak Chinese,and when they see you are Chinese peoples as well, they will start to speak Chinese to you. Because, i have experienced that, Whenever, wherever i starts wanna buy something, the sellers will speak Mandarin to me, and I was like "I'm sorry, I only can speak English and they were like suprised".
Well, I'm from Indonesia but for sure i have chinese blood and i wanna learn Mandarin. :)
Maybe for this time trip, it gives me learning to love the Chinese language, it has been so interesting to practice it here in Singapore, and i'm going to Visit Singapore again in the future, often or not often, but surely yes !

Anyway, let me share you the picture with the caption within it !!! ENJOY ~! If you have any questions regarding my travel experiences, and wanna know me better just starts email me okay , yos_steven@yahoo.co.id. ^_^

Outing Program to Cinangneng, Ciampea, Bogor (INDONESIA)

OhaiyouGozaimasu , everybody..
It has been long time i did no blogging , so sad right ? but it's okay i'm going to continue my old hobby again ! it's fun actually, i was just lazy !
so Last Saturday, I went to Cinangneng town for the Ibuddy's outing program.

At The first time, i feel somehow sad, since i didn't know anyone much, okay let me tell you the story..hope it's not long
So, this Ibuddy program is a program where i'm the student of my University have to guide an international student who exchanged to my university for a semester or more ,so each person got one person to guide or maybe more. Fortunately,i only got one and his nationality is Dutch.
And the story is i didn't join the orientation , so i know nobody, but day by day it seems i just can't get out from the Internationalization. I met many international students and help them,after that i introduce myself to them and then they know me.
but what makes me afraid is there are still a lot of exchange students who didn't know me before, but it seems everything went well, i introduced myself to everybody and it's just GREAT !!
 Yeah ,the story weren't long right
so let's get into the core ! I'll upload the pictures and tell you everything just by adding the caption into it ! hope you gonna enjoy and amazed by the beautiful CINANGNENG~ :D

Farewell Victoria Joy Strube !

Hello Blogwalkers ,
Today i would like to share my story about my friend here, Victoria is her name,oh yes if you wanna know her full name, Victoria Joy Strube (I mentioned it on the topic). She is from California, United States.
I'm kinda happy and sad at the same time (i know it's kinda ambigue), she is leaving us today,just now on 13 : 20 (1:20 pm).

She's the best U.S friend i never had ! She is so different,but if you tell me to describe the differences,i just can't..yes that's why i'm saying she is so different,i just can't tell ! something is just too special about her,i also don't know what is that so special about her,i don't know how to describe it !! ah yes,the conclusion are she is just too special and different at the same time !
I'm happy because finally holiday is coming, final exams has ended,but i'm sad she is goin to leave us ! no,she leaved us (sarcastic) !!
I wanna cry but i can't !

She is studying Sociology in Seattle Pacific University at Seattle,U.S . And i think she really know how to socialize with peoples, she is such a good listener, sometimes sensitive feeling can comes out from her,especially when i tell her my story life (when i tortured Gilbert) also, she cared about the children and sex trafficking in the world.
Fantastic,she got the personality, she got the careness, she got attitudes !

Anyway,she is a great teacher as well. She teached me how to practices sarcasm in English, She teached me how to drink alcohol..And now I know what you are thinking right now, "What kind of teacher is that ? teach such a thing ?"
But you know,experience is the best when it comes to the case-solving ! and we need those experiences in the future to face the cruelness of the world ! we just need that ! and she teached me so patiently,she always say "Steven,come on you can do it !" , "you can do it !" it's simple but it's works !
Okay i think my heart is crying,i really miss her so badly now :'( i can't see her already ! but it's okay,we would meet in the future ! I really hope if i can go to U.S but the ticket is just too freaking expensive !! but it's okay,i knew i will visit it in the future ! I believe i can fly #ehh
But still,she also said coming back to Thailand in the future,she is thinking about teaching English also, and not to mention,she would travel to my homecity !!! MEDAN !! I would like to show her the Biggest Southeast Asia Lake if she really do that ! Cold Weather,Volcano Island,A Succulent Sea, Kind peoples ! Interesting,huh ?! Oh yeah,I'm sure she would love it !

In the end, i Would like to share our photo together here, i hope you guys can enjoy it ! and Victoria,if you read this; please respond this to my facebook post or my wall,anything will do !

Ohhh miss her badly

Misss heerrrr

This is she with her burger

Yuhuuu Alcohol
