In March 2021, I am currently back in my hometown so I can take care of my mother in pandemic time. While I have been working remotely for more than three years, there is no big difference in my working habit. But I truly miss is the fact that no more travelling time both work and pleasure. Especially when there was no window opportunity to get a vaccine for people less than 60 years old. Back then and until these days, partial lockdown is applied everywhere within and outside the country.
2020 is undoubtedly the peculiar year for anyone around the world. For the first time in my life, it is excellent staying at home! The key is keeping your own space and a lot of green plants around you! I less travelled after March 2020, and the further I have gone would be coffee shops in downtown.
I haven’t been posting this topic for the last couple of years. Surely there were few changes on my Traveling Gears as I usually tried to get things handed to family or donated when I don’t feel happy to use it again. I have been fortunate to have an opportunity to work from home for two years, and these following products are used daily nowadays.
Lately, I tried to reorganise my blogpost which I left quite a while. In the process, I found how many blog posts that I have made following these years. Blogging becomes my hobby when compiling thoughts. I never realise until it built up although some are still unfinished after years.
After staying in Bogor for years and lots of travels finally I’m back for good to Bandung – my hometown – due to COVID 19. Yes, the reason is quite common as other people nowadays. Although I’m not sure whether it’s similar for other grown adults Indonesian nowadays as some of us most likely staying with our parents. Anyway, last time I posted something similar to this is about living in Indonesia after a year studying in the UK.
Studying the most cryptic and nocturnal species such as bat fauna probably can be done by launching un-manned aerial vehicles in the dark sky of the night. The technology has been known applied already in the survey project on mining and oil palm company usually provided by an expensive private company. In conservation related issue, drones have been used in monitoring orangutans and elephants in Sumatra and Nepal.
These are the best book that I recommend to read to everyone. I read less book in 2018 due to my work and traveling time. Most books are non fiction and more of my interest for self improvement and productivity.
I would say that 2018 is a year for personal growth and taking risk. I travelled quite a lot as well due to work and here are some highlights. Anyway I should make this post earlier but I only have time just recently.
This post is more likely my brief review of the traveling and surely daily stuff I loved for 2019. I do not think many things changes since I still have most of stuff from 2017 and 2018. However, I add my daily skin care products that I have used since end of 2017.
“ People look for retreats for themselves, in the country, by the coast, or in the hills . . . There is nowhere that a person can find a more peaceful and trouble-free retreat than in his own mind. . . . So constantly give yourself this retreat, and renew yourself. ”
Working in a consulting company focused on conservation and sustainability issues, I spent half of my time traveling to one to another city or country. Throughout these years, for me traveling alone (work or pleasure) is somewhat practical and sometimes even cheaper by taking flight compare taking other transportation mode.
