A Quick One

The reason I have neglected this blog for the past few weeks is:
1. Academic assignments. This term has a crazy workload. Despite the journals that I read during vacation in Greece, I've still got tons to do. So when I have time and *inspiration* to write, I better use it to write those essays and reports.
2. Indonesian Cultural Night. The Indonesian Student Society in Greater Manchester is holding a fair tomorrow, in which I act as the project leader. Oh but let me stop a moment here and say that everybody in the committee have worked so hard and I'm very proud to be a part of this event. It's gonna be awesome.

In summary. Super swamped. Better utilize my writing juices for assignments.
Yeah pretty much like that.

I'll see you in three weeks.

Cheers.

Good Gracious, It's Greece! - #1 The Landmarks

A bunch of us, Indo gals and dudes, went to seek some real sun a week ago. By real sun, I mean the one that actually gives you warmth at your back. The one here in Manchester is fake, which only shows for decoration purpose. T____T
So we went and I love every bit of it!! I love it so much I'll break it down into three posts: The Landmark, The People, and the best part: The Food.

I am blessed to have the opportunity to visit these new places, deeply grateful for it. I'd like to share it here, hopefully you'd enjoy :)


Parthenon in The Acropolis of Greece

Oia, Santorini
The most romantic place. Praying for a return visit someday. Amin.






White basic and blue ornaments, typical Santorini color design.



We ran around in Oia to find the perfect spot to take sunset pictures and found a quiet one. We were the only ones there, watching the sun set. Magnificently serene.

Fruitless orange tree in the National Garden, Athens.
There are SO MANY orange trees in Athens! I love it, they make the street smell kinda sweet. We weren't sure if the fruits were edible, though, so we didn't eat it.
