[Buzz Korea] Asian On Air Program

Well, annyeonghaseyo (hello in Korean)
My name is Latifah Yulia from Indonesia. I am an Indonesian who live in Indonesia *no wonder, right?* You know how I love writing and traveling. Is it not something correspond each other? Well think again!

This time I am joining (again) an event to win a (free) holiday in South Korea. Well, maybe I am so stubborn to joining this kinda event again and again. Actually, I am afraid to fail again in all essay competition I am joining. "Will I success this time? or will I fail?" I am asking myself. But a lot of a successful person that I read the biography, have went through a lot of failed life and rejection. Deep in my heart I always say, "why don't you try this time again? Maybe you'll win this time. Thomas Alfa Edison is also went through a thousand of failed research just to find a light bulb".
"yeah, if you want the world remember and recognize you, you have to stubborn and hard work more than any average people do" -me
One of my favorite author said, "With writing you can change the world and people will always remember you". After I went through consultation with my best friend, Oppy, and my sister, Dewi, I though why must I give up?

So here I am trying to reach my passion to travel around the world before I am die: writing an essay about things I want do in Korea as competition from "Asian On Air Program".

One thing that I want to do before I am die is to see the world, traveling around the world, learning another culture. So basically I want to have an experience the world. One part of world is Korea. Who don't know about Korea these days? No one! Uhm, well, except you live inland in the middle of nowhere without internet connection.

This little country (no offense, but being compared with China or US with a huge territory, Korea is small, right?) has become "it girl" recently. Something that will always in people conversation. Thanks to entertainment sector of this country for advertising the culture of Korea into the world. With Kpop and it's Kdrama who intensely introducing the culture, a lot of people become more curious about Korea. In the world of technology nowadays, it is so easy to searching information about almost everything.

When I want to learn something new about a lifestyle of a country, I'd prefer to stay in the native household. It is a good opportunity to experience traditional Korean lifestyle and culture.

When I stay there, I want to use a Hanbok as my daily uniform in there. Hanbok is atraditional clothes from Korea like Kimono in Japan or Kebaya in Indonesia.

And I want to try make a homemade kimchi and soju. Kimchi is a traditional fermented Korean dish made of vegetables with a variety of seasonings. Soju is a distilled beverage's native name for shōchū in Korea.

I want to enjoy the scenery of the so famous Nami Island and Jeju Island. Visiting Korea is not complete if you haven't come to this two iconic island right? Especially I want to visit Nami Island in winter or autumn! So the atmosphere would be great! As for Jeju Island, I think visiting it in summer or spring would be a great idea!

If I have to mentioning all I want to do in Korea I think it wouldn't be fit in the post. I love traveling and adventuring. I am very excited to learn something new for me. I am listing Korea as one of my holiday destination before I die. I wish Korea Tourism Organization and Korean Air can choose me.. :D
