Snapshot Sharing 02: First Internship as Mandarin Teacher

Image
On month February last year, I went to Pekanbaru to complete my internship task as a Mandarin teacher in a private school. Yes you heard it right, I worked as a teacher or you might call me as "laoshi" (teacher in Chinese). This is my very first time teaching in a class. It was a fun weeks with the kids. They are so naughty but also adorable at the same time. I have one and two favorite kids actually. The one I remembered named Alice. She wears glasses (gosh, she's only 7 but wears glasses already!) and always sits nicely at the front row. She speaks Chinese fluently and her Mandarin test always a great score. I asked her why she's so good in Mandarin and she said, "Because I speak Mandarin at home with Mom and Dad, when I grow up, I want to be a Mandarin teacher just like you." See, every teacher loves this kind of kid hahaha
Another fun fact of my internship memory, me and Sastika went to same school together for internship. I stayed in her place for two…

Books Love: KOMA

Pertama kali lihat judul buku ini, yang terbesit di kepala ada dua: koma tanda baca atau koma dalam arti "mati suri". Aku beli buku ini di awal tahun dan sejauh ini, novel ini masih jadi favorit. Selain karena judul dan sinopsis yang menarik, aku kangen banget dengan tulisan Rachmania. Inget "Eiffel I'm in Love, kan? 

Ternyata bukan novelnya aja yang menarik perhatian, novel ini merupakan sebuah simbol dari sebuah fase kehidupan Nia yang katanya stagnan dan penuh renungan. No wonder, waktu baca buku ini, aku kayak "kebawa" dalam cerita. Rasanya dunia "koma" itu memang benar-benar ada dan sesungguhnya manusia bisa belajar untuk lebih "hidup" dalam dunia "koma". 
Hari ini aku mau share beberapa quotes yang sangat memikat hati dalam novel Koma. Kisah bagaimana seorang perempuan muda yang cukup naif dalam cerita cinta dan kehidupannya, Jani, bertemu dengan sosok yang merubah pandangan hidupnya di dunia "koma", Leo.

What's in My Working Bag

I usually take this bag with me for work or just for hang out. I bought this for my birthday present last October. I reallly love this bag! This bag contains lots of things but when you carry on your back, it doesn't feel too heavy.  Every night before sleep, I always pack my working essentials so in the next morning I don't need to be hurry. 

(1) Basic barista needs. Since I am a new green bean, I have to take the barista journal, basic barista module and the coffee passport everyday. The coffee passport is awesome. Every time you try a new coffee (we do "conduct coffee" every day, when you try coffee and learn about it), you have to write it down the details. So far, I have tried.. hmm.. five or six of Starbucks whole bean? I should check for it again. 
(2) Green apron. Of course this is a must! 
(3) Daily journal. I got this free from a local magazine. I feel little bit bad because I rarely to write my journal these days. I have to do this again.
(4) Kitty wallet. I a…
