What Do You Dislike about Your Job?
To be dealing with spoiled volunteers who come to Bali with hidden agenda :)
What Do You Want to Show Us about Your (New) Home Country?
How amazing Bali really is, beyond its amazing beaches, tourist attractions, nightlife- there is so much more to appreciate from its culture, traditions to local wisdom. How exceptionally special Bali means to its people and those who live here for years.
How is Your Daily Life Going?
Waking up in the morning, getting ready to work, driving up to the office to work at 09.00 am, driving back down around 17.00, if I would be in project trip I would not be at my office, I would spend half day even one full day visiting project, introducing new volunteers, monitoring current volunteers, speaking to project managers et cetera. After work, going to the beach for sunsets is always an exciting thing to look forward to every day, going to the gym afterward and getting meals for dinner out at local food stalls or traditional food markets with my good friends.
What Do You Do at Home to Relax Your Mind?
Listening to good music while drinking fine coffee or green tea, reading classic poems, always relaxing.
Outdoor Activities You Love to Do?
Yes, jogging or beach batting by the beach before sunset. Best scene after a long day of work.
Any Personal Future Plans You Don't Mind Sharing?
I will finish my Master's degree in Cultural Studies.
