Okay, I have to admit that I'm so uncreative because I always use the same opening line each years. But still, I will start this post with such a cliche like, "times flies so fast!". Seems like it was only yesterday when I wrote a recap post for 2015 and now I have to write for 2016.
So, here's a summary of what I've been up to this past year.
January: Solo trip to Philippines and another scholarship hunting.
At the end of 2015 I was struck by such an impulsivity -- I always blame my impulsivity for everything, though. Long story short, I bought a return ticket to Philippines and decided to go for a solo trip. El Nido it was. A beautiful serene place, completely perfect for the one who's searching for serenity and to contemplate. Sunny days, clear beaches combined with picturesque karst hill (just like in Raja Ampat or Phi Phi island), seafoods galore, fresh mango smoothies that I drank near the beach while watching for the sunset, made me thank my impulsivity for giving me a nice solo trip experience. At the end of January I decided to make the second attempt for LPDP scholarship. 2016 was the 4th year of my scholarship hunting. I almost gave up but thank God I'm always surrounded by supportive people. Without them, I'll never make it.
