Rumah Lain untuk Badakku

Rumah Lain untuk Badakku
Memperingati Hari Badak Sedunia yang jatuh tanggal 22 September kemarin, saya mengikuti lomba menulis yang hadiahnya field trip ke Taman Nasional Ujung Kulon, sertifikat, dan uang tunai. Hadiahnya memang menggiurkan karena sudah lama saya ingin melihat badak secara langsung (kalau beruntung karena badak kan penyendiri dan nggak suka hidup dekat-dekat manusia).
Artikel yang saya tulis sudah dipublikasikan di laman pembaca Viva.co.id: http://ceritaanda.viva.co.id/news/read/677865-rumah-lain-untuk-sang-badak (bantu share atau sekadar like ya :p)

Positive Energy & Blessed Life

Positive Energy & Blessed Life
I just got back from Asian Women Empowerment 2015. I feel so empowered that seems I have limitless energy. I listened to inspiring women from scientist to financial planner. I met people whom now I call friends. They are so positive and surrounds myself with them makes me happy and productive, and dare to dream big, just like them who most left their bright career to pursue their dreams. Doing their passion. And get paid by doing it.
One of them is Lu Wee Tang. She wrote on her facebook profile: "People need to be reminded more often than t…

A Talk in Taxi

A Talk in Taxi
I took a taxi with Corrine, a participant in AWE to reach airport. We had light conversation for that 60 minutes trip. She has just married in August so one moment I asked her.
"How's your life after being married? Are there many differences?"
"Not much. I like travelling and going to conference like this. He never restricts me. He said, 'if that makes you happy, just do it.' So yeah there is no any difference before I married. Once I asked him to go back and work in Brunei and he said yes so I worked there for about o…

Edu Hostel: Review of My First Staying in Hostel

Edu Hostel: Review of My First Staying in Hostel
Staying in Edu Hostel was my first hostel experience. Edu Hostel is located at Jl. Let Jen Suprapto no. 17 Ngampilan, Yogyakarta 55261, Indonesia. How to get there? 1. From Adisucipto International Airport, use Trans Jogja Bus (it only costs you IDR 3600 and includes sight seeing of the city. I seriously recommend it!). First, go to bus shelter and take Trans Jogja Bus line 3A. Get off at Ngabean Station and walk 150 meters towards the traffic light intersection to the north.
Trans Jogja Bus operates from 05.30 am-09.30 pm.
If you prefer taxi…

Day 2: Exploring and Got Inspired

Day 2: Exploring and Got Inspired
September 11th was the first day of the event, Asian Women Empowerment 2015 *screaming*
I started the day in the morning by going to Beringharjo market alone. I didn't see it as a fancy place. Maybe it's because I don't like shopping while travelling. Besides, the market usually opens at 9.00 am so at that time, only few stores had just opened. I moved as I walked with no direction. I just walked straight and surprisingly arrived in front of Vredeburg Museum. Once it was a fort used by colonial government before Indonesia got its …

Jogja Day 1

Jogja Day 1
Wow! Itu kata pertama yang gua bilang dalam hati waktu akhirnya sampai di Jogja. Perjuangan banget sampai di kota ini setelah sebelumnya ngalamin beberapa kejadian nggak enakin. Mulai dari supir taksi yang jemput terlalu awal jadi minyak kayu putih nggak kebawa dan kamar belum dibereskan sebelum pergi, delay pula karena Bandung Airshow. Anyway finally I made it. Also I sticked to my plan, to not take taxi and use Trans Jogja instead. Seeing lively yet calm Jogja at night brought back some memories about three years ago, on how I spent some ni…

Always Be True and Original

Always Be True and Original
Beberapa hari ini saya dikejutkan dengan beberapa teman yang katanya mampir ke sini, ke pit stop saya ini. Lebih dari satu orang (yaiyalah kan uda disebut beberapa). Dan semenjak itu hampir takut menulis lagi karena esensi sebuah blog yang adalah diary untuk konsumsi publik terjadi pada saya. Tapi malam ini ketika duduk di meja belajar, saya memandangi sebuah quote yang sudah lama saya tulis. Saya menulis untuk diri sendiri. Bermain diksi yang berfungsi sebagai perenungan diri. Jadi buat apa takut-takut menulis? Di jaman yang kata orang banya…
