Akhirnya gue putuskan buat memulai nulis artikel.

I finally decided to start writing articles.

Okay, ini artikel pertama gue.

Here it is, my first article.

 

Gue memulai dari trip luar negeri terakhir gue di tahun lalu, Korea.

I Began to start my trip to foreign country last year, Korea.

 

Waktu itu gue berangkat ke Korea tanggal 26 Desember 2016 jam 23.50 dan balik ke Indonesia tanggal 01 Januari 2017 jam 16.55 waktu Korea, waktu Korea itu 2 jam lebih cepet dibandingkan Indonesia.

I went to there on 26 December 2016, 11.50 PM and went back to Indonesia on 1 January 2017, at 4.55 Korean time zone. Korean time zone is 2 hours earlier compared to Indonesia.

 

Gue pulang pergi naik Asiana Airlines, perjalanan selama kurang lebih 7 jam, Puji Tuhan dapet makan di pesawat, dapet bagasi 23 kg, pas pulang dapet extra bagasi 9 kg. Kan lumayan banget tuh!

For the accommodation, I chose Asiana Airlines. The journey took more or less 7 hours. Thank God, I got meal on plane, got 23 kilos of baggage, and the company also gave 9 kilos extra baggage during the home trip.

Begimana temen gue enggak nitip sampe 3 pensil alis coba?

Before I went to Korea, one of my office-mate asked me to buy her Ettude`s Eyebrow pencil. In Korea, the price of that item is just, 3300 Won, if it converted to Rupiah, it would only cost Rp35.000. If we buy it in Indonesia, we have to pay at least Rp100.000. So, you know why my friend beg me to buy that eyebrows, right?

Okay, Dongdaemun emang jadi pusat perbelanjaan yang wajib banget didatengin buat para pencari make up, baju, aksesoris lain kaya sepatu, celana, jaket sampai earmuff yang emang semua serba cute.

Okay, Dongdaemun is the shopping center that you have to visit, if you are looking for cosmetics, shirts, or another accessories.

 

Harga-harganya juga sangat bervariatif. Banyak penjual yang sering bilang “It’s made in Korea, not made in China!”. Itu bisa dipercaya guys karena kualitas barangnya memang lebih bagus dibanding barang produksi China.

The prices would be very variable. Many sellers there shouted “It’s made in Korea, not made in China!”. You can believe it because the item`s quality is better than Chinese-production items.
