Too early farewell

“If you have good friends, no matter how much life is sucking , they can make you laugh.” – P.C. Cast

I knew these people only one semester and know they finished the study and will leave the lab soon, pretty soon :(. 이마로 (Lee Maro.. well he always wants to be Mahro >_<) and 최준혁 (Choi Jun Hyuk). They have been very kind and helpful people, especially for us as the alien in the lab. Lot of laughs were made with them despite of the unpredictable atmosphere in the lab. I should have known you guys longer than this, please just stay! Hehehe….

And Maro… thank you for being so helpful and patient while we were working together during the experiment (hope the paper published pretty soon^^), we should spend sometimes outside together (club? hahahha!). Eat healthy and be happy~

No… you guys will do better out there and I’ll meet you again with suit fit in and more laughs to make. Good luck guys!

Things I’m gonna miss from Korea

2,5 years stayed in Korea, and I’m goin to leave on August 30th, 2009.

This is the list of things that i’m gonna miss from Korea. Since i like 7 number, then i put only 7 things here, and number here doesn’t mean preferences.

1. Internet connection

of course! everyday dealing with internet. I can resist internet connection in Korea especially in KIST, it’s soo fast! I might get internet connection shock when i get back home in Jakarta..:D

2. Food and the size

Takalbi, nengmyeon, jimdak, and other korean food that i like except kimchi (yucks!). Also the size of the food when u order in the restaurant, it’s more than enough, so temptating…

3. Lab?

I think it’s hard to say that I’m gonna miss my lab, but it’s true! even though i had hard time there during my study and experiment, but for sure I’m gonna miss that life (especially when i become unemployed..:P).  Gonna miss the time i need to come at 9 in the morning and try to finish the work as soon as possible which was very hard to do, then end up at goin home after 9. I was lazy even until now, so after free dinner in cafeteria is enough for me to stay in lab.

4. Transportation

Geeee I’m gonna miss that convenient subway!! sangwolgok station! so easy, right on time, never late.. love it so much. I wish Jakarta had that one.

5. Safety

yeaa… i love sightseeing, and not less shopping!! taking pictures of course.. namdaemun, myeongdong, insadong, jongno, jonggak, samcheongdong, sinchon, hongdae, ide, and many more… and it’s safe.. everywhere, everytime even very late night. I could easily bring my camera anywhere, anytime… Woaaa.. again, i wish Jakarta were just like that.

6. Flickr in Seoul (FIS)

yes sureee I’m gonna miss being part of them. very nice people, friendly, lovely, as well as getting more knowledge of taking picture.. I’m gonna miss u guys, the meet-up.. the laugh, the dinner, the party… all!

7. Bryan

haha.. this one is kinda funny, I’m gonna miss him. Dr. Bryan was my supervisor. a young and handsome supervisor, with tremendous  knowledge. He was being so supportive, inspiring, and friendly….

There are more things I’m gonna miss… Here in Korea, so many new things I got, expanded my knowledge.

Bye Korea, by Seoul…

Hope I can come by again.
