English as Well


So, question of the day is, someone ask me at ask.fm about why I write my blog in English, since I'm Indonesian, it must be good if I write it on my mother language. Actually, it's hard for me to express my feelings in Indonesian way, since I cant speak Indonesian in 'formal' way. For example, In English you can simply put I but in Indonesia it's a bit confusing since a lot of words like saya/aku/gue/etc. It's one of a lot of such of matters. The second reasons is I want to people understand what I write. Since English is the global language that people should understand. I won't ask you to study English to understand well, but I guess, is it a must to study English in these day? No excuse then.

Am I good in English? Nope. My English also like a sucks, I have a very broken grammar and a lot of mistakes. If you only want to speak/write in English when you are cool enough, you won't success. Why? I believe you also understand that practice is the best answer of a lot of obstacle. At the first time, I also have same problem of mostly people here. I'm afraid to speak English. I'm afraid to spell English on the right way, I'm afraid of mistakes. Then I need a lot of practice. How? Your parents can't speak English well, your friends is same with you, and if you have a friend who can speak English well in Indonesia, I believe in the end you will speak your own language. It doesn't work. So, I suggest you (and I've done it before) to have an exchange program to US or Europe area. Why not Asia? Because they like us and you will meet a lot of Asian people (or maybe Indonesian) so it's hard to study when you meet a friend that have same mother language. Why US? their mother language is English, and why Europe? they can't speak English very well like you, so you can understand well since you also in the same level of them. In the end, people who attend the exchange program is people who eager to learn, esp English. 

One of the benefit of the exchange program is you gain a confidence in yourself to speak English. I suggest you to have min. 30 days of exchange program without your own nationality in your group. I believe you can do well. Tell me when you success! Good luck.

I'm wearing this fluffy sweater from Platform Store. They have their own store at ITC Mangga Dua, but I enjoy online shopping more than a visit in a store. I got the skirt from Stupkid at latest Infare Bazaar. The necklace is from Youniq Jewelry, I bought it trough localbrand.co.id. Anyway, I'm using a lipstick from 3CE Stylenanda. Is it match with my outfit? It's a bit pale and pinkish.

The highlight of this look is my bag! I got it from Sea World. Sea World located at Ancol, Jakarta, Indonesia, It's really lovely because it have a small shark doll with sky blue color, stitch on the bag. I feel like to visit a lot of place such as Dufan, Jungle Land, Sea World, Water Boom, etc. People in my age are trying to be a nostalgic, but come on! I'm not that old actually.
