Who is the Author?
Hello, my name is Jun Jie Wong. I am 18 this year. I am a Malaysian boy currently in Germany for an exchange program. I came here not only to travel, meet new people and have fun, but also to experience new culture and also spread the word about Malaysia’s unique culture.
How long is your duration of the stay?
I arrived in the middle of March, and I will be leaving during January 2018. So it’s approximately 10 months long.
What to expect to see in this blog?
I will be writing about my adventures here in Germany, whether with fellow exchange students or the locals. On the other hand, I will also be sharing my thoughts that come to mind throughout the program. For example, various challenges, what’s different, what’s new, what’s my viewpoint on a certain topic that I face and so on.
Why did I start this blog?
I am not one to write blogs out of the blue. The reason why I started this blog is to be able to note down my thoughts and experiences in black and white so that it doesn’t fade away like most memories do, because a short pencil is better than a long memory. I will also be able to look back at what I’ve faced and how I confronted them, and this will help me be able to evaluate my mistakes and improve on them.
How will you be writing posts in this blog?
It will mainly be written in English. But if I do use words or phrases from other languages that I know, for example: Mandarin, Malay or even German, I will probably write down the definition of word together with the phrase.
If you have any questions you want to address to me, you can either contact me through any of my social media accounts or by e-mail, which will be available on the CONTACT page. I hope you enjoy reading up my blog posts! God bless.
