A Chapter of Eid Al Fitr in Taiwan

On the last day of Ramadhan, I still spend the night with my friend to discuss about research paper. Yes, my everyday always be filled by anything related to research. While usually other people (Indonesian.red) spend their last Ramadhan in their hometown and get together with their families. Yeah, it’s the fate of overseas students like me. 😅

No wonder, some people might think that study abroad is somehow very cool, interesting, and such an incredible experience, but some people might think otherwise. Some of those who think otherwise usually because they tend to “judge” the country (where is your study abroad destination? Europe? USA? Asia?). Whatsoever how good your university destination based on a “university world ranking”, all that matter is your destination country. Hence, somehow I deplore that way-of-thinking.
