I want to tell you about my last weekend , 6 November 2011 which i spend for a Eid Adha . For you who doesn´t know what is Eid Adha , Eid Adha or Offerfeest in dutch is one of the biggest moeslim tradition for commemorate when our prophet Ibrahim was willing to sacrifice his son Ishmael to God .When Prophet Ibrahim was so sincere, Allah will replace Ishmael with a sheep. Usually in Offerfeest we do pray and sacrifice a sheep or a cow or a camel (usually in Saudi Arab) and give the meat for the poor people.
I went to PPI Groningen (thanks to pap Alberto who takes me to the City) which organize the Solat Eid (Pray Eid) , it´s a comunity for indonesian people who studying in Groningen for the Pray , and I met Kak Vica from http://viracanya.wordpress.com/ ! :D for the first time ! she is doing an exchange year too in here but in RUG.
After the pray , actually there is a Lunch with PPI groningen because tradition in Indonesia we have a lunch after solat Eid . We ate Sate , lamb sate and for them who dont like it there is Sate Ayam !
FOOD FOOD FOOD INDONESIA FOOOD !!
finally I ate indonesian Food !! (But before this I think My hostmom cooked me Sayur khas Indonesia with Rice , Kroepoek, And Uitjes Gebbaken a.k.a. Bawang Goreng)
Many people suspected me as a student who takes a bachelor in here , yea i know am small and looked like still in junior high school -.- , but they dont think that am an High School Student because some of them are taking master in here or they suspect that my parents are taking PhD in here (I hope this one become true :p ). And Suprissingly I met Kak Michelle ! An Indonesia AFS returnee from Belgie ! ik ben echt zo blij , now her hostparents are hosting my friend Asanilta :) Sucha Little world !!!
Me and Kak Michelle on the Right Side
and one more thing my friend Fatema sent me Eid Mubarak SMS :) sucha sweet thing from her ;D
So having a crucial day in the other country was really amazing , I still can meet indonesian , eat indonesian food , and have a eid mubarak text ! or maybe because am already feeling like a home in here !

Am posting in the middle of the proefwerk week , its kinda mid-test in indonesia but it more seriously because some of the test grade will be your grade to go to university.
I learn in here how to manage my time , because i have to learn language , the subject, and i have to adapt at the same time. I learn how they studying in here , they study really hard before the test and until now i never saw somebody cheating. It makes me realize nobody will help you in the test ;) I have a bad bad habit that am not studying for a test, so for this proefwerk week i have to study .
The type of the questions is an analysis question its very different from what we already learn becauae actually we have to open up your mind and combine it what you've learn , so it makes you think very hard!
Don't laugh at me because i bring a very big dictionary for this tests. Because the questions is in dutch and i have to answer it in english :B
I've done math, general science, english literature, physics, and today is chemistry test u,u wish me luccckkkk
