Anyway, it's all done now... Let's proceed to the next step.. GMAT Preparation ;p
This is the end of my report for September '07
Saturday, August 25, 2007
We'll see.. I'll got the result in 13 days..(really wonder why they have to say that the examinee should wait for exactly 13 days? why not saying 2 weeks or 10 working-days instead?) Is it a good or bad omen?? hehehehe...
In the nutshell, if you want to sit on IELTS or TOEFL here is some list that you might want to try or prepare:
- Allow yourself to have plenty time for preparation. Much better if you could join an intensive preparation class instead of crash course programme.
- Work on your weakest skill best.
- Do exercise on daily basis.
- Ask the IELTS conselour if you are in doubt about the test.
- Don't drink too much on the test day or you will come and front to the restrooms like I just did today!!
- May the LUCK be with you
I hope that my Listening and Speaking result are good enough to contribute a better total score or at least meet my wanted-score.

Speaking shouldn’t be a problem for me but I don’t know why, every time Maggie –The Teacher- asked me about a topic even familiar one, I just feel that I didn’t answered it well enough and gave lots of pause here and there. My my….
Writing is another threat since I just can’t stop myself checking all of the grammar and spelling before move on to the next paragraph and it’s really time consuming!! 20 minutes won’t be enough….
Hiksssss… I’ll try my best…I will…

It was a sunny day once
It was just about rainbow, blooms, and butterflies
Fresh green moss smell
A warm comforting air breeze
Remember so well when you took me down to the strawberry fieds
Picked the full ripe Sega Gegana strawberries
Tasted its sweet flavours
Now, no more strawberries
No more lullabies
No more sweet wines
No more rainbows
No more sunny days
Coz, I just woke up
Realized something that so hard to believe
"Entering the reality"
"Being alive in a hard & rude real world"
Let's dream again
Maybe tomorrow, hopefully
Looking forward to having another happy one
Bali, sometimes in July, 2007

Got home at 7.30pm, took a super-quick shower, warmed up the Cinnamon Buns and made a cuppa tea, precisely on 8pm I sit still opening The HP book page by page.
Finished it at 2.45am (the very next day) kinda slower reader huh...(607 pages in over 6 hours and 45 minutes :p).
The last chapter seems not in the right place. But, maybe Mrs. Rowling just want to make a good closing with a happy ending story. I'm pretty sad to know that this book is her last book of Harry Potter.
Hmmm...the big question is, whether there someone could beat her reputation as the Best children-story author in the following years? or Mrs. Rowling still keeping another cool stuff in her manor to surprise her fans?? We'll see...we'll see
- The page number of the 6th book and the 7th book is exactly the same. It has 607 pages each.
- Defence Against the Dark Art seems really jinxed. No DADA teachers would last till the end of the study term.
- Hmmmpphh....anyone would add my list? Please, feel free to do so... :)

Wow…wait a minute lady, you absolutely can’t do this to me… I told her that the class should go on no matter what since only them who have this IELTS prep-class (heeyyy….the other English foundation in Bali! Do you understand for what I am writing down here?? It’s a business opportunity for you!! Let’s make IELTS prep-class!) and I have no choice to go to prepare my upcoming IELTS test somewhere else. She mumbled something that I hardly understand then I came directly to the new campus of “the foundation”, spoke briefly about the situation and gave them an idea that if only they just managed to find less than 15 students, they just simply need to raise the tuition instead of cancel the class and disappointing people who are looking dearly for the class like, for instance, me.
The other effect is, I need to re-schedule my work plan in my office. I supposed to visit my clients in Timor Leste and with this event, I should change it like it or not. Deadlines are facing from up and front. Only God knows what my boss going to say about this. Been postponed this visit for the I-don’t-know-for-how-many times.
One thing that I couldn’t understand, how could a big foundation plus they also claimed themselves as the best one, run their business like that? Are they that smug to think as they are the one and only? I hate to admit this, but so far yes, they have no competitor that provides IELTS prep-class. I am so devastated. *Sighhhhh*
Be patient. That’s surely do
First of all, like other people do when they start their blog is giving some information about themselves. Let me start with a bit of me: born into this beautiful (or painful??) world about 27 years ago, feeling so lucky ever since that I have a great parents that raised me up, a brother that giving me a chance to become a sister (I hope I am a good one so far), attend to the best school and university that gave me “ability” to find a good JOB (hehehehe….It’s pathetic actually that people –read:employer- just look at our academical record then wasting it by replacing us to a department or doing a job that doesn’t suit for us at all. In return, the result could be poor). But, I am fully contented with what I am doing now honestly. Thanks GOD for it.
Currently, I am living in one little island in Indonesia, yet it’s famous worldwide. It calls The God&Goddess Island…Have that clue? I’ll give you a Lindt chocolate if you could guess ;p
Okie dokie, enough with me… Let’s start blogging!!
