I will never forget how I celebrated my 21st birthday this year. I celebrated it 3 times this year, with Hans, family and friends. (I posted the activities on my Instagram)
I had my birthday celebration with Hans earlier, since it was impossible for us to celebrate it on due date because of the weather and seasons in Dubai.
We decided to do a skydiving in Dubai, we had been wanting to do it since last year. Also, a private desert tour, riding a camel for 45 minutes and etc. What could be better than that... I love it too much, I am still feeling the vibes until today. I love Dubai.
Thank you for being the best companion on the best birthday trip that I ever had, Hans. I never expected that I am going to have my 21st birthday this way, I am so grateful than I could ever adequately express how I feel about my birthday this year.
But things changed when I saw the Palm Jumeirah from the plane windows. It was so beautiful that I was so ready to jump off!! I was too excited! All of my thoughts and fear has gone! POOF!
While the others seems to getting more nervous, I was so energic that I get up a few times as if I was the first to jump off the plane, while I was the third!
I was so on fire! but when it came to my turn, and I was about to jump, I was a little bit nervous, and realize that there's no turning back, and I can't imagine I was about to jump! Like attempting suicide, regret it, but it's too late because you slipped and die! So, my tandem instructor jumped! It means I jumped! I screamed! But happily! I'm still alive!! so It's time to enjoy the moments on the air instead of worrying too much!
The free-fall was like 1 minute, and
I'M ALIVE AND THIS IS TOO BEAUTIFUL!! that was what I'm thinking on the air! AMAZING...
The views down there.... Heaven! My tandem instructor and I had a chit chat on the air, he showed me around, oh I can't describe all the things that happened on the sky. I saw everything! It was like 5 minutes or more, I'm not sure but it feels longer like 5 to 7 minutes before I touched down. So peaceful, so beautiful, I teared up a bit up there, because I felt euphoric!! I was filled with euphoria, and If there's a sad or classical music playing up there. I'm pretty sure that I will definitely cry like a baby! It's too beautiful.. This is the best way to enjoy the beauty of Dubai, Palm Jumeirah. You are not consider as coming to Dubai without doing a skydive! It is the best skydive place on the earth!
I saw everything...! I would definitely do this again! I was flying, I was on the air! I sawwwww everything!! Soooooo happy........ please do try the skydiving if you are going to visit Dubai. You will definitely know what I meant and how I felt. That moment will lasts forever.
Besides the skydiving, I had so many good times in Dubai. Like, everything is perfect. Something definitely new and uncommon things that I was experiencing. I was so happy, for the very first time, I was feeling full. I was filled with euphoria every-day that I spent there. I still have a lot of things that I wanted to do in Dubai, and I can't wait, while I should, to come back to Dubai!

This is my very first time celebrating my birthday trip, abroad. I was really excited about my birthday trip to Korea, both of us visited korea before. We both know and missed korea a lot, especially the foods there! But I was so worried about our travel itinerary because we didn't plan a lot. Annie suggested that we get lost and do an unexpected journey at Seoul.
At first, I worried a lot about her, I'm afraid that she will not enjoy the trip because we didn't plan much. But, things turned out to be fantastic! It was the funniest trip that we ever had! Everything happened unexpectedly, every day!
We really got lost in Seoul! We eat a lot everyday, we shop a lot, we played a lot! Annie is not a big fan of meat, she prefers vegetables but in Korea, she definitely eats more meat than I do.
We also met kind-hearted people who helped us a few times, and as not all korean people major in speaking English and Mandarin, There're a few times we tried to communicate with pointing and body language! for examples; I accidentally paid our restaurant's bill with Indonesian Rupiah, and we also saw two demonstrations that happened in Seoul and Busan.
The only thing that we regret the most on my Birthday trip is, we thought that not more than 2 weeks trip was enough! Definitely not enough! Sometimes I'm not sure whether the trip that was not enough or being together with her that was not enough because we're still in a long distance relationship.
We agreed that we will come back again, honestly all the places we had been so far, We planned on coming back again! We had the best times every where we go, and that's a good thing.
But this time a trip to Korea with her, was the best! I'm glad that she decided to get lost and didn't plan much. It turned out to be the best moment in my life, I had the best birthday trip!
