I am in Manokwari

I am writing from my room in Manokwari. I left Bandung last September 26th. There was a nice farewell with all the employees in my office in Bandung. I am sad to be parted from them. They’ve been very nice, warmhearted, and very kind to me. They left doulce mémoire to me. So did the city of Bandung. I put all the special things in my heart.

Then I headed home. I stayed home for a week. Then my flight at 3 AM took me here to my new city. Manokwari. 

I have fast adaptation in Manokwari. It doesn’t take much time to get along with the employees here. I have seven officemates here who come from the same program.

This small city has unique landscape. It’s surrounded by mountains. It’s got beach, which something I like very much. After first five days in the office, I and other five office rookies went to Bakaro beach, 13 km from our office. It’s beautiful. We wished we had stayed there all day. 

This is a quick update. There’re so many things I want to share. It’s great to be in Bandung for six months. I got many things to share about it. I have also been in Manokwari for eleven days now. There’re sure some photos narration coming up here.

At Home

It’s afternoon here. The sun shines trough the window, showering my brother’s room in orange luminescence. I have been at home in Makassar since last Tuesday (13/07). I wish this holiday will last. But it won’t for sure.

It’s past-midnight. 2 AM. And I am in this room again. Through the window, I can see the build-up outside, setting its surrounding alight. I can hear the constant chirping sound of crickets. I know I should sleep by now. I have a schedule to fit today. In the afternoon, I am going back to Bandung. 
By the time I arrive in Bandung, I will miss everything. This room, this house, this family...this home.
