On february 4th 2016, i went to the edu fair which is held by LPDP, a legal institution from indonesian governance that manage educational funding. This event has been held in Jakarta on Feb 2nd 2016.
No.. i'm not a scholarship hunter actually. I'm not ready yet become one of them, hehee. I just dreaming about it. Get scholarship for my master degree in holland, or at least a training or course for developing my experience. The reason why i came there because i want to feel the athmosphere. Eventhought im not (yet) a scholarship hunter, but when i came there i felt so excited. I asked many things from the campus representative, like groningen univ, australia award and nuffic nesso. I was interested much with short course programe which gave by nuffic nesso and australia award for their master programme. I have heard lil bit about nuffic nesso. And i wish next year i can be one of their awardee.
As schedule, this event should be opened at 9 am. So my husb and i decided to leave out from our house at 8.30 am. Yaah setelat2nya palingan gak sampe setengah 10.
Buutttt guess what?!?! Sampe disana antrian masuk ke tempat acara udah kaya antri sembako. padahal i was not that late. I was arrived at 9.15 am!! Oke sabar.. dari sini udah agak lemes karena peminat beasiswa banyak its means saingan juga banyak. yaeyaaalah siapa yang nggak mau sekolahnya dibayarin, keluar negeri pulak.. X_x
|Habis parkir langsung buru2 antri|
|Jiaaah ternyata antriannya panjang|
|Alhamdulillaah lumayan cepet antriannya jalan|

I have bought the ticket from end of January since they weren't sold the ticket on the spot. So, we just brought the digital printed ticket or showed the ticket which has been sent to our email.
Okey, now lets checked the situation inside the auditorium. Ohemjiiiii.. so crowded. There are so many collage student, approximately thousand i guess. Atmosfer 'scholarship hunter' begitu kerasa banget di sini. Senang rasanya liat mahasiswa mahasiswi S-1, bahkan kebanyakan mash kuliah begitu semangat berburu beasiswa master keluar negeri. Aaah.. suddenly i felt regret why I never dream about continue my study abroad since i was in college. And I never dream about looking for scholarship :'(
While the LPDP committee checked our ticket barcode, i saw the schedule which put near them. Ohlalaaa… honestly beside i want to know more about the scholarship, i was interested with the ielts simulation. Unfortunately, it has been done half hour before. hiiiks.. T_T
Kenapa ini jadwal engga dipasang di internet sekalian siiih, biar bisa prepare berangkat lebih pagi… huhuuuuhu
Dan woooow, di dalem ternyata udah rame buanget.. But alhamdulillaah masih ada kesempatan tanya-tanya ke stand Nuffic Neso, University of Groningen, dan Australia Award. And then, at 10.30 am i went to room D to see 'Study in Hollan' presentation. This is what i've been looking for..

Lumayanlah dapet gambaran sedikit. From all stand, most of them gave scholarship for master degree. Jadi yaaah kurang menarik minat saya, which is as planning, i came there looking for short course or summer course. Tapi gak apa-apa lha, it was gonna be my very first time experience attending scholarship fair..
And last, thanks to Allah for making me dream about it, even tough i (as a human) never know when will it gonna be happen but at least with this dream, forcing me to learn more and never stop dreaming. And to my husband who always be my best supporter, take a day leave from his office just to accompany me, suka dengerin aku ngoceh ngalur ngidul akhir-akhir ini tentang mimpi-mimpi yang entah kapan bisa terlaksana.. love youuu #smooch :*
