Assalamu’alaikum, I want to introduce myself, my name is Fadilla Ulfah, I am from INDONESIA and I am from UNIVERSITAS NEGERI PADANG (UNP) collage. Economics and Economics Education Study Program, I studied in 2016, and now I am in sixth semester. Originally I am from Bukittinggi, and I am now 20 years old.
Following the SEA-Teacher program is a program that I dream when I was in junior high school because I want to exchange students abroad someday, and Ahamdulillah now , I have achieved my dream.
Exchange at Saint Mary’s University, here we are 7 people, 4 people from Indonesia and 3 people from Thailand. I booked a ticket to Manila on January 4 until February 4 with an AirAsia plane, I left with my friend who also came from UNP, Fakhri Irfan Hadi, he is at SEA- a Teacher that teaches sports. The ticket that we ordered was a PP ticket . On the 4th, we departed from Minang kabau International Airport to Malaysia. In Malaysia, we were not just transit, but we were on holiday for 4 days.
In Malaysia ,we stayed with our friends who also joined SEA-Tecaher. We lived in the apartment team that came from India. I went to Tower , only it that I visited while I was in Malaysia because I slept more than I played.
January, 7th-8th 2019 (DELAY)

At 8:20 AM at KLIA2 airport, I left with Fakhri to Nihoy Manila Airport, and Alhamdulillah I arrived at 6:20 AM, because at dawn prayer time, I prayed on the plane.
Nihoy Manila Airport, the Queue for Immigration was very long, at 09.00 AM, I finished doing an inspirational check and we were greeted by a group of Saint Marys University, namely Miss Liberty. I and Fakhri exchanged money to the money changer for Rp.2,000,000 or $ 137 and at P 6,666. I bought a GLOBE starter card at the airport, because of the difficulty of the wifi network, with the price of P 600, and only 4GB.
