A calculator’s pretty simple right? So I decided to use my new-so-amazing calculator for some simple functions.
I was adding some figures – let’ say 1+1. So I hit 1 + 1, then pressed “Enter”. It showed 1. Huh. There’s something wrong. So I hit 1 + then it suddenly showed 2. Something’s really wrong.
I guess it it’s time to take out the guide…

Finally have my Japan student visa! Valid from day of application for a year and three months.
Apparently not all applications are gratis. So when you submit your application, ensure that you have the exact amount (written on your stub) due prepared.
Simply went in, surrendered my phone and laptop, got my ID, took my claim number (starts with 6), got inside the consular room (?), had my claim number called in less than five minutes, presented my claim stub and got my passport.
I then went out to change IDs, proceeded to the JICC library and picked up my letter for travel tax exemption.
Voila! Sent out the certificate via LBC and I’m almost all set. Almost!
On our way to the Munduk Valley’s tour, our best-driver-ever asked, “Do you want to pass through the temple on the lake?” Since we have time to kill, my friend and I answered “Sure, why not?” Good thing we did.
I’ve always loved Botanical Gardens. So when our driver asked us if we want to drop by Bali’s Botanical, I’m all for it.
I’m from the Philippines. So I look practically the same as any Thai, Khmer, Vietnamese and apparently, Indonesian. Locals usually treat me as a fellow national – until they talk to me.
I’ve noted in another article my fears and doubts about Jakarta. Here’s an update after a quick stay in Jakarta:
Heck, I can’t even type it in (Thank you, copy paste!) That’s the highlight of the performance in Uluwati.
We went expecting a Civet Farm and ended up with a plantation – with a free botany lesson and a dozen tea flavors. Who’d have thought I’ll have a botany lesson in Bali???
They said if you want to immerse yourself with the Balinese culture, leave the beach and stay at Ubud. They were right. I also realize that I have no “cultured” or artistic bone in my body.
