with a focus on Indonesian Citizen
(updated: 1 November 2018)
The unfortunate thing about Indonesian studying in the UK is that it’s so very near to go to other countries (as cheap as £12 to go to France, for example), but you can’t because there’s a huge barrier…
What is that?
VISA, of course (still seething inside looking at Malaysian friends who can just impulse-buy flight/bus ticket)
The good thing about studying in the UK, is undoubtedly that everyone and the media speaks and write in English. Though it’s likely not a benefit if you’re into learning new languages, it’s definitely heaven for an avid reader with less budget like me, because all the books in the library and the bookstore are in English. As my lab’s based in Surrey, I applied to membership in Surrey Library, which is a big consortium of61 community libraries in the County of Surrey .
It seems that a few years journey of owning e-book readers, which in themselves pretty uncommon in my circle, made me quite the “expert” in the field. Though my expertise definitely amounts to nothing compared to countless others in mobileread, my knowledge is apparently enough to at least give some views to the confusing start on e-book reader world for some of my friends’ question of “which e-book reader shall I buy”. Disclaimer: This is only my view, however, may be different with other people.
I think other than horoscopes, personality tests are almost everyone’s guilty pleasure. Who doesn’t want to know about oneself? I have fun doing some of these tests, and apparently, not every one of them is famous enough? So, here comes a post so that I can just link a page and let everyone has fun for the next few hours.
