SMILE THERAPY  一笑天下無難事

剛進入了新的一年,一個對自己充滿懷疑的女孩終於開始了她的人生新旅程。是的,這個女孩,就是我。我正準備離開我的舒適圈,讓自己獲得成長並能挑戰自我的機會。我向家人獻上我最燦爛的微笑,向他們保證我可以過得很棒。然後在2018年1月14日搭印尼最早的早班飛機到我從未去過的地方。飛行8個小時後,我終於抵達台灣。或許你們正在疑惑是什麼原因使我邁出我的步伐踏上了這個國家。我有很多想分享的事物,所以接下來的5週請持續追蹤我發布的訊息。在此我希望能夠分享在台北第一週我所做的“微笑療法”是什麼?尤其在雅德賽思幼兒園與兒童學社。

A girl who is having so much doubt in herself finally just started a new journey of her life as the new year has just started. That’s girl is me, I’m leaving my comfort zone to challenge myself to get the new experiences that could help me in developing myself. As I was giving my best smile to my family, so I could ensure them that I would be ok for all the way long. Then took the most earliest morning flight to the place that I’ve never been before in January 14, 2018. Having flight about 8 hours then I finally landed in Taiwan. Maybe you guys are wondering what is my thought that made me finally make the steps in this country. There are so many things that I would like to share, so just keep on the updates that I will post every week until the next 5 weeks. Here let me share something that hopefully you could get the sensation of “smile therapy” that I did for my first week in Taipei, especially in Art and Science Kids Society (ASKS).

從桃園國際機場和親切的EP夥伴Rachel搭乘捷運。而終於我到了捷運的最後一站,那兒將是我會見到我的寄宿家庭男主人大衛先生的地方。我吃了台灣人引以為傲的牛肉麵,作為我在這的第一餐, 這餐讓我感到特別溫暖。大衛先生帶我到他家並向我介紹其他家裡的成員,艾米女士,桑潔,方滕,狗狗和貓咪。我所能做就是笑容以報,不斷的說”謝謝”,謝謝這個家庭給我一個住宿的地方、國際志工計畫的機會等,還有更多的東西。當然,這就是我所謂的“微笑療法”,一笑天下無難事喔。

After riding the MRT from Taoyuan International Airport with my lovely EP buddy, Rachel. Finally I arrived in the last station, the place that I would meet my host family father, Mr. David. Then I was having my first meal which is beef noodle, the Taiwanese pride. Yaa sure it could made me feel warm. Then Mr. David took me to his house and meet other family members; Mrs. Amy, Sunjade, Fountain, Yuki, and chiao-miaw. All I can do was smiling and said “thank you” for giving me a place, opportunity, and so much more that I would get with this family. Sure, here’s “the smile therapy” that I did.

我休息了一整天,應該是因為時差吧,我猜。終於我去了我的工作地點,「雅德賽思幼兒園」(這是雅德賽思教育協會的相關教育體系),由大衛先生和艾米女士經營管理。從孩子們興奮地和我互動開始,儘管語言的隔閡仍然存在,但是我可以做的就是主動保持笑容。即使面對家長和陌生人。我可以想見印尼的微笑文化也是存在在台灣的生活中。台灣人是如此親切,他們也把最真誠的微笑回報給我,讓我在這裡感到賓至如歸。我可以在寄宿家庭及工作場所感受到這股正面的能量。我想,我已經準備好繼續下星期的歷程了。

After a day having full rest because I was really jetlag, I guess. Finally I went to my work place, Art and Science Kids Villa (ASKV, which is part of ASKS’s program) that is Mr. David and Mrs. Amy organized by themselves. Start from the excitement of the kids for having interaction with me, eventhough the langauge understanding still bordering us. But what I can do was automatically smiling. Even when I met the parents and other people around the street. Guess this Indonesian culture is also happening in here. Because the people are so friendly, they also giving back their true smile to me that made me feel comfort in here. I could feel the positive vibes in my host fam house and my work place. Guess I’m ready to continue my journey for the next week ahead.
