My name is Geraldi Tellys Lie, but you can just call me Geraldi.
I am currently a second-year architecture student at the University
of Melbourne. I am originally from Indonesia, where most of
my high school years were spent. It turns out that my decision
to go to Melbourne is very rewarding. It is a city with a
vibrant life offering dozens of activities. Even though it
is still not a match for my hometown in terms of food, in
terms of social life, it is really colorful. It's always an
easy stroll out to find a cafe or a pub as they are literally
in every corner of the street. Clubbing here is also great,
I enjoy listening to the DJ's and watch the crowd dancing
the night away (of course I dance along too).
In summer, a 20-25 minute tram ride will take you to the nearest
beach, called St. Kilda. In winter, it's the turn of skiing
season in the nearby resorts. I personally think autumn is
the best season to enjoy Melbourne (it's around Feb to May),
because that's when the weather and the color are the nicest!
In my spare time, I also visit the local library to read some
magazines or call my friends for eating out. My other interests
include photography (amateur), games (who doesn't love games
anyway?) and watching movies. I uploaded some pictures of
me and my friends and Melbourne to give you a hint in how
it feels like to live here.
I've just been to Japan last December so my memories of your
country are still fresh. I visited Tokyo, Osaka and Nara,
and just as I had expected, the visits were worth my time.
I particularly love the food, takoyaki from Osaka! I am also
a big fan of Japanese anime and manga. I have a collection
of Gundams back in my hometown. Lately, I've got to know some
Japanese musics from Youtube. The rappers like M-flo and Zeebra
are simply awesome. Well, I think that's enough from me now.
I'd be pleased to get to know you!
