Midnight Thoughts: Officially Leaving Yogyakarta

In less than two days, I will be flying to a city, a country I’ve never been to – which is exciting and scary at the same time. Hong Kong SAR.

There are some progress that I have made in the past week. First and the most important thing is that my visa and the Letter of Acceptance are both in my hands. I am so relieved about this because I am not that confidence in sending anything important through postal mail, especially if it is international one and as important as visa, but thankfully everything went fine.

Other than that, I have officially left Yogyakarta more or less a week ago. What happened a week ago was that my whole family came to Yogya and it was so fun. My mother & siblings went there to help me packing my stuffs up, two days after my father came and we had a road trip through three provinces from Yogyakarta to Bandung in order to bring my suitcases and bags – and also bring my car along. The moment of leaving my beloved room & having a road trip with my dad only was that memorable, thus I somehow made a lot of videos and I decided to vlog the whole trip. If you are curious, you can look at our trip here and see the room I used to live, the roads we took, the discussion we had, and especially the foods we ate! Because for us basically road trip is culinary tour HAHA no wonder our size is….hm…bigger than normal. But it was nice having a quality time with my dad as we didn’t get to spend many time together, since I entered college.

So, I moved out already from my dorm and it was a mixed feeling during the process because I can’t deny that Yogyakarta has been a beautiful home for two and a half years and the thought of leaving it although only for six months makes me sad a bit, and wonder will HK be a good home for me too. But at the same time, I am also thrilled to wander around in a new environment, to find new things, to eat new foods, to get lost, to meet new people, to learn new language. In two days from now.

I guess, this mixed feelings and thoughts are what keep me awake till this midnight.

Two more days, and countdown starts…..now
