There wasn’t a “16for2016” (i.e., 16 countries in year 2016), which could have been the third following from my 14for2014 and 15for2015 projects in the last 2 years. Nonetheless, this year I managed to step on 4 continents (Phil did 5 though, because America!)—which is why I think 2016 is equally awesome as the previous years!
*Because it’s kind of gloomy around here today, I’m posting this somewhat dreary snapshot…*
One of the things that I used to love doing when I was younger was teaching. Seriously. Probably because my older sis and bro are both teachers, and I’m exposed to those lesson plans, test questions, and stuff like that. I remember I used to invite my childhood friends to play “eskwela eskwela” at home, wherein I played the role of a teacher, while they were my students! :D
One fine Saturday during the month of April in 2012, my housemate and I visited Kota Tua in Jakarta for a photowalk. [Bago kase camera nya, kaya excited gamitin! hahaha!]. Now this blogpost contains some of my snapshots during that photowalk. (As you may notice, my snapshots were more concentrated on people around Kota Tua, rather than the place itself! hahaha!)
Note: Forgive my errors on the dates–photos were all taken on April 14, 2012, and not April 13. :)
My first trip to Malaysia happened back in February 2010—‘twas just a spur-of-the-moment decision to go with some co-secondees for a backpack trip from Singapore to KL, Malaysia then to Bangkok, Thailand… Long-weekend kase, Chinese New Year that time… A little unprepared though but still we managed to get through it. :)
Hiyesss, my time’s up! I’ve foreseen it, but didn’t expect it to be that short hahaha! So, I didn’t have much time to conquer all the remarkable places in Indonesia, the world’s largest archipelago, but I was able to maximize my slack moments by visiting some of the famous places around the area of Java.
#1 – Out-of-Jakarta Trips! Of course, this comes first on my list! Gala-mode on! :D Pros: I get to see and photograph a lot of interesting places in the Indonesia archipelago The weekend trips deepen my understanding of the Indonesian culture (nux! ehehe!) I get to enhance/practice my Bahasa Indonesia skills! haha! :D Cons: Cash…
