As title mentioned “time flies so fast”. I wrote this since i was asked by the department office explained that i have to submit my thesis proposal for my Master Degree. Actually, now i am a 3rd semester student in South Korea but i was asked to submit my thesis proposal. in addition, i didn’t realized that 1 year ago i was a newbie in master course. Time Flies so Fast isn’t it.
Wait a sec, before i continue writing this post, i need to recall my memory.
I started my first master course in South Korea majoring in Computer Engineering. (wait, whatt? First master ?) yes you right. i have a plan to take my master once again either in Europe or Japan. (what is the reason) the reason i feel that my current knowledge is not enough for me to continue to Phd, that’s why i decided to retake my master once again. even though for the first time i have many difficulties in learning the lecture, but i tried my best to understand it.
This is the first time i learn a Indonesian traditional martial art called “Silat”. Yes, i realized that Indonesia rich of cultures, natural resources, languages, and ethnic groups. I am proud to be Indonesian. Actually what i want to learn is traditional dance, but i couldn’t find a course for traditional dance in Bandung, Indonesia. Since the relationship between dance and martial art is similar, i tried to learn martial art. martial is very useful to protect self protection against bad people. Besides that, i want to have more friends, because at that time i have no friend in Bandung. Just for your information my hometown is in Bekasi, another city near the capital city of Indonesia, Jakarta.
I got a job as a full time freelancer in a software house company based in Singapore. I call this a freelance job, because it has no company name in Indonesia. but in Singapore this job has a name called “Lotus Partners“. My boss is an Australian who build his company in Singapore. we have only 4 employee in Singapore and 2 employee in Indonesia, including me. Mostly what we are doing is develop a website especially e-commerce. About the salary at that time i got 5.5 million rupiah per month, approximately 550 US dollars. Yes, that amount of salary is higher compare to the average salary of my friends.
This time, i started to be a freelancer who tries to find a job for himself. i was looking for a project in Odesk.Odesk is a website which connect between the freelancer and a company. the payment of the project is in dollar and can be transfered using wire transfer, payoneer or moneybookers . if you want to see my profile, you can see here
I started to be a backpacker. my first country that i visited is Singapore. Why? no visa required, nearly close to Indonesia, english as a native language. I travelled for 2 days only
i realized that my english is poor. i had been studying english since i was in elementary school. Can you imagined it’s over 15 years but my english is poor. I googled around the internet what is the best way to study english. then Google suggested that i take an english course in Pare. Pare is a city in central java. In that city there are many english course. the difference is in here(pare) the students force by his teacher to speak english every day. hahaha.. i like this.
For the first time i took an IELTS test. at that time the fee was $180
I moved to my new company. i was regret to work for this company. you know why ? because this company is kind of outsourcing company. the company send his/her employee to their clients to do the projects in clients. i hate this company. my contact for this company is 1 year, but i quit after 10 months. that means i have to pay my 2 months salary to that damn company. sigh…
