Taiwan: First Week


July 13th, 2012 was the exact day I took my flight on and departed at 23.45 (GMT +7) by Garuda Indonesia Airlines.  Not only me, another Exchange Participants Vera Kumalawati, Nadya Apriliany, and Leonard Rosser from Prasetiya Mulya (LC Prasmul - Expansion team of LC UI, Indonesia)  also flew to Taiwan with me -we are separated later and had our distinct projects and also location to live- Nanda and Leon checked in first then Vera and me follow suit. 

cute thing happened before I passed the Immigration. Someone called me a sudden and ... "Yo, wait for us. We are coming. See you. - Ricky" AAA! too touching to be true~ really. I've asked for leave for several times and kyaaa~ however it has been an extraordinary feeling to see all of you guys :') Have never had to go over long period before. Thanks a looooooot for coming and let's documented our concise-yet-converging-moments. 

Once more, I was so melted, thank you :'3

My phone rang and someone's rushed-voice said that they were really sorry to made me waiting for about 1,5 hours. It wasn't felt too long, they came to pick me up. And we were heading to Hualien via Taipei Train Station to attend the AIESEC Trainee Conference 2012.

July 20th, 2012

This day was our very first (after the previous simple kind of training 7 km way home) bike training day. We woke up so early because we have to departed for about 5 am in order to avoid getting sunburnt.

The first training was set at the mountain area (I didn't really know the exact mountain name). And actually, all of us ought to be arrived at the mountain (picture are shown below). It took about 2,5 hours-biking toward our final destination from Mike's home. 
Final Destination on our 1st Training - by: Hanah Jang

Facts:  4 of 8 Trainees could reach our planned-final-destination :') HOSH! I was counted in the other 4 who couldn't put an end to the planned target. I was sweating so profusely. Concerning the perspiration-process, I guess, what a great amount and active sweat glands was mine. Besides, have no energy to ride uphill.

Unfortunately, I got my first unforgettable accident on our first 'Biking Taiwan Wanderer' training day. ugh~

Thanks God, I'm still OK. :'3
Don't give up! And never ever give up! :')

Pain evidence after a day passed :')
Always be careful, teammates ♥ Hopefully, there's no other bad thing happened then :')
