Speaking

I become a cardiologist for four and a half years. Before that I was a resident. I like to go with my friends to have dinner and shopping. My father wants his daughter to be a doctor. When I was student, I was a girl so when my parents asked me to do something, I will do it. But now, I’m not. Now my father tells me, that he made a big mistake and this decision changed my life, not my life, my family’s life. My mother’s life is take care of me before I came to SH.

Maybe I’m too busy so I have less time to learn English. I have been to Bali last month. I had to communicate with Indonesians because I couldn’t find the directions. I went Bali with my friend, but she never go outside, she just stay at the resort. She didn’t want to in the sun so she stayed in the hotel for 7 days. I asked her out at night and then she told me your skin get black. She said I look like a Indonesian now so she told me not to go outside at the day time. She told me every day, you’re more look like an Indonesian than yesterday.

Revised: 

I became a cardiologist for four and a half years ago. Before that, I was a resident. I like to go/hang out with my friends to have dinner and go shopping. My father wanted his daughter to be a doctor. When I was student, I was obedient so when my parents asked me to do something, I would do it. But now, I’m not. Now, my father tells me that he made a big/huge mistake and that this decision changed my life, not only my life but also my family’s life. My mother’s life was to take care of me before I came to SH.

Because I am too busy so I have not enough time to learn English. I have been to Bali last month. I had to communicate with Indonesians because I got lost. I went to Bali with my friend, but she never went outside, she just stayed at the resort. She didn’t want to stay in the sun/get dark so she stayed in the hotel for 7 days. I asked her out at night and then she told me my skin got black. She said I look like an Indonesian now so she told me not to go outside at day time again . She told me this every day, you look much more like an Indonesian than before.
