2018 IN A POST


2018, a year of growth. The year when I learnt so much about life and every aspect of it. The year when I learnt how to evolve. 

Here are some of the best highlights that I will cherish forever.

CHRISTMAS 2018


This year, I was very lucky to able to spend Christmas with the most loving and beautiful family I've ever known in Australia. I'm forever grateful to be a part of this family for the past year. No matter where I am next year, they'll always be my family. 

Merry Christmas!

WEEKEND DIARY | PART 16



This has been an emotional week for me because I've finished my job as a language assistant. I had farewells at two schools where I worked, said goodbyes to the students and staffs. I wasn't ready. I'm not. I wish I had another year. 

However, this was a great week to celebrate the ending of my work here. Even better on the weekend because I've been caught up with some people that I really want to catch up with, went to places I've been meaning to visit and more than that, made me happy!

MENJADI BU VERA DI AUSTRALIA


Awal tahun 2018, aku terbang ke Australia dengan amanah menjadi seorang guru bantu atau language assistant di bawah pimpinan Department of Education and Training (DET) Victoria. Perasaan cemas akan memulai pekerjaan baru, tinggal dengan orang asing, dan bahkan, berbicara dalam bahasa asing. 

Namun, seluruh kecemasan dan kekhawatiran itu hanya ada di kepala. Ketika tiba di Ringwood tanggal 28 Januari, aku disambut oleh pelukan hangat Graham dan Donna Harris - yang kemudian menjadi orang tua Australia-ku. Sore itu aku di ajak berkeliling sekitar rumah, pergi ke taman, berjalan-jalan di pusat perbelanjaan, dan bahkan kami bertiga makan es krim bersama. Sejak hari itu, hari-hariku di Ringwood selalu luar biasa.

WEEKEND DIARY | PART 15

This weekend, I met up with the other language assistants at St. Kilda Beach. It was a great catch up to finally sat down and talked. I met with Diane quite often but with the others, we haven't been since March! 

It only took us 9 months to finally meet up again. I really wish we could have more time together. I couldn't be more grateful for this language assistants program to bring us, all around the world, to be able to have good times together in one place with one language. It's not goodbye, it's until we meet again. All the best luck guys!

WEEKEND DIARY | PART 14

Akhir pekan ini, aku dan beberapa teman language assistants dan IKAN berkunjung ke rumah Ibu Maria Obrowski di Greensborough. Beliau dengan berbaik hati mengundang kami untuk makan siang bersama sembari merayakan hubungan baik kami selama hampir setahun ini. 

Aku bertemu dengan Ibu Maria karena beliau adalah salah satu anggota VILTA. Pertama kali bertemu di konferensi internasional tahunan VILTA dan sejak itu beliau sudah seperti keluarga. Memang benar kata orang, ketika kita tinggal di luar negeri, kemudian bertemu dengan orang dari tanah air itu berbeda. Ini sudah kali kedua kami berkunjung ke rumahnya, pertama kali ketika kami makan malam di hari Idulfitri. 

Terima kasih, Bu Maria. Insya Allah ini bukan terakhir kalinya kita bertemu ya.
