“ 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. ”

My 2017 Self Review
Happy New Year! Lately it becomes so difficult for me to write down my blogpost. I feel writing on paper seems more effective and flowing instead jotting down my thought on computer. The 2017 is a year of personal growth in term of career and education. It is also a struggle and challenging year for love but a great one for friendship.Continue reading “My 2017 Self Review”
Café Rouge in Canterbury
This post is more likely for nostalgia. I do remember walking through this area at High Street in Canterbury and then have Latte or English Breakfast tea while working on my work at Café Rouge. Today I am back to my routines in Bogor, working from 9 to 5, and get back in touch with my family in Bandung for the last 3 weeks. Many people asked how it feels back home. My answer would be pretty much the same I reckon, “not too bad”. I guess it because I have been being a nomad for the last 5 years. Continue reading “Café Rouge in Canterbury”

The Northern Ireland (2): Belfast City
Belfast, the city with red bricks, terracota colour, titanic city, the troubles, old pubs around the corner and many more. Strolling across this city make you think is this England?
The Northern Island (1): Gleen Ariff Forest Park and surroundings
One thing about Northern Ireland, The Land of Game of Thrones. The East Coast, in particular, Gleen Ariff is surely beautiful and very refreshing. I was here during Chrismas break to visit my old friend, Dave Tosh, wandering around the hills, farmlands and abandoned castle.

Kunjungan ke salah satu pulau terbesar di Channel Islands ini adalah untuk menghadiri kuliah lapangan bertopik Integrated Species Conservation and Management di Durrell Conservation Academy. Tidak lupa pula kami mengunjungi Jersey Zoo Park yang mana merupakan bagian dari lokasi kami tinggal selama hampir seminggu penuh. Continue reading “Jersey Trip #1”
The Leeds Castle
This castle is dubbed as the Loveliest Castle in the world. However, don’t get it wrong as it is NOT located in Leeds. This castle is located at Maidstone of Kent County. I visited this beautiful castle as part of University of Kent’s welcome week event. Besides entering the castle, you could visit the nearest falconry, get lost with your friends at the maze and find your exit through the beautiful underworld grotto.

The Slimbridge Trip – Wildfowl & Wetlands Trust

Never thought before wetland areas can be so interesting and used for public education. The Wildfowl and Wetlands (WWT) has a tremendously important role in communicating the importance of wild birds and wetlands as part of ecosystem.
