Bed Rest

Just feeling tired physically and mentally since my ex-boss wants to promote me. I am really thankful about it but doing something that you don't love just like lying yourself.

In last couple months, my boss send me and other colleagues the neighbor country to meet a client there. I was so exciting but not at all when I realize that the client is a difficult client. But the show must go on. Thank God, the project I handle has the most visitors. Unfortunately, the Client didn't think so.

"Please! Do something to make more visitors! Any cost will do! Any cost will do!"
shout the client.


...........

"What the hell you are talking about?" I said silently.
You want many visitors but you just give us short time and minimizing the budget all the time.
You even don't pay the company for our effort to held this exhibition!


*inhale*exhale*

After the exhibition finish, I continue my life a bit peacefully. 

I decided to resign from my job and planning to have some holiday.

Go to Oz, meet my lovely people and enjoy the views for 17 days (Wish that I could stay longer there!)
I went to ex-office to give some souvenir. My boss saw me and say, 'Why not you comeback here until you start your post-graduated program?'
At night I text my manager and said, 'I'd love too.' 

A day after I back home, I went to Bandung and stay there for three days.
I directly went to Jakarta and work in the next day I arrived in my dorm.
After three days I work, feeling like I am dying. 

I've got dizzy, fever, and finally bed rest.

I decided I will not continue go to office anymore for health purpose.

Work, have fun, travelling, is a must, but health is important too.

10 Best Things about vacation in Australia

Blessed are those who mourn, for they will be comforted
- Matthew 5:4

Remembering about last few post I wrote, I feel like God really wants to tell me something.
First, He wants to cheer me up and prove that He never create bad plan for me. I think God wants give me and my family a present that we never imagine before.
Second, He wants me to be a better person, in english, self-confidence, and in my services to others.
Third, Last but not least. He wants to draw me closer to Him.

Actually. there is a thing that He wants me to know - the purpose of my life. Well, I'm sure even now I am not sure what He wants me to be, the best part I can do is to do His way of life.

In this vocation, He lets me see His GREAT creations!!! Too long if I write in this blog, so I decided to make a list 10 best things that happen to me in Aussie.

1. Beach along the way
I really love beach and always want to come to beach. Since Jakarta is not a right place to find a calm beach, I thankful I can enjoy beach view from Melton to Heywood. Captured by Canon EOS 600D

Perfect time

Hi guys,
I am now posting from Australia. Tonight is very cold, about 9 degrees celsius.

I arrived in Melbourne Airport on Sunday, 1st of June. Actually I plan to go to this country with my friend, Irene, but when I tell my parents and also my siblings about this, they thought it will be very good if they come with me, remembering I have a cousin lives here.

So Irene decided to not join us and I feel sorry about this.

Anyway, the first day in Australia, my cousin named Immanuel, pick us in the airport about 1:30 am - not really cold at that time.

We hug each other and I can believe he was walking by my side in Melbourne.
It just like a dream comes true because he always ask us to come and our answer is always: one day we will come. So today is the one day :)

We went from the airport to Melton - his place. Stay for a night.

The next day, we go to his wife, Wendy, place in Heywood with his husky dog named Zoey. 

Zoey is a very pretty girl dog and wolf.

Bang Immanuel took us through the journey with the best view ever. Beach along the way!!

At some point we go outside from the can and took some picture.

Actually, you only need 4 hours travel from Melton to Heywood, but we took 8 hours.
Heywood is a small village with 1300 population, peaceful, and very beautiful.

I met Kak Wendy for the first time. She is very kind and friendly. I really love her! She cook very delicious supper for my family for three nights. 

Today, my family and bang Immanuel (without kak wendy and Zoey) go to Portland. We stop in a playground. I, my sister, and my brother play in the playground, my parents dance and sing below the big tree, bang Immanuel take pictures and video of us. That was the perfect moment I want to remember for all of my life.

Thank God for everything.

Tomorrow we will go back to Melton and stay there without internet access :(

Good night.

God bless you
