I'm fascinated by the remarkable stories every country has to offer. I wanna go to the others countries in the world and learning something new, and also practise my foreign languages as well.

Currently I am learning Korean and Thai. I do speak Indonesian, Madurese, Javanese, English and Mandarin Chinese. A little bit Cantonese and French. =)

comment Does anyone recognize the characters written on this home shrine?
@Stan: Thanks, but what does it means? I tried to Google Translate it but it's incomprehensible.. I tried to separate it into a single character to get the original meaning of each character but I can't construct the sentence.

comment What shoud I use to say “I love you”: “wa ai lo” or “wo ai ni”?
Agree! I think "Wa ai lo" is derived from Hokkien: "Gua ai lu". A lot of people outside the originated place where Hokkien being spoken usually pronounce it "Gua" as "Wa". :)
