--> iMake International Friends

as-salam and say hi to my friends!

I really love making friends from overseas. There are so many reasons why I want to expand my social circle but it is mainly for my educational purpose. I am a teacher-to-be so I would probably use this means to sharpen my communication skill as well as learning people's  culture all around the globe. 

Perhaps, I can  use this medium to attract my future students and share with them so many things that I've learned from my overseas/international friends. Okay now, let me take you guys for an amazing tour of some of my friends from...

United States of America
William is from Monterey, Tennessee and Rebecca is from Washington. William is so funny that I couldn't stop laughing when I was on Skype with him. He talks fast and a lot. No wonder they call him Ramblin' Willy. Rebecca is a teacher-to-be as well. She is a converted Muslim, married and has two handsome sons! I met them on languages exchange sites called InterPals and The Mixxer.

Philippines
Maynard Agoncillo is my first Filipino and oversea friend. I've known him for more than 4 years. He's very friendly and he doesn't mind to share anything that I ask. We video chat sometimes. Charmae Tupas and Princess Camille are bestfriends. I met them on Twitter and they are freaking hilarious. I almost died talking to them via Skype. Joever is a great guy and a loyal friend. When I was first knew him, I didn't get many chances to talk to him and I went offline for so long. Surprisingly he still remember my existence...a guy from Malaysia!

Finland, Turkey, France & Columbia
Antti is a fun boy. He is 17 if I am mistaken and he knows how to speak a little bit of Malay Language. He will be studying abroad after finishing his high school. Yusuf is an intelligent Turkish boy who lives in Germany now. Despite at the young age, he is able to speak four languages (as far as I know) which are his mother tongue, English, Japanese and Germany. Noreen is such a sweet girl that I met on Facebook. She happens to be friend of my Malaysian friends who are currently pursuing their degrees in France. I take French class here in Universiti Putra Malaysia and she kinda my private tutor hehe. She teaches me French from time to time and I hope one day I'll be able to speak that language fluently. Andres is totally uproarious guy from Columbia. He is a singer and he settles in America at this moment to be a music teacher. Awesome ha? I love talking to him since he is super duper open-minded. I met him via The Mixxer as well. He loves Shakira because her hips don't lie.

Interested to make friends online? Kindly visit The Mixxer and InterPals or you can just search of Facebook and add them as friends. People said you'll understand the world better when you have friends from different cultural background. To prove this theory, just shut up and drive!

Hope you get it...till then, that is how

Wow! That was a shock for me. I've try to find friends online but most of the experience I got was not that good. I read about penpal and what so ever but still I never believe one actually do make it online (you are as the example). Interesting. Maybe I need to be more open minded person.

Anyway, great entry about foreigner (like what UPMnerian called them. =P)
