Misconception about MOROCCO

Facing street harassers in a daily basis in my own home country is really ironic. So far, I haven’t found any place that I’ve visited to compare with the emotional experience that I get for being harassed in Indonesia. Well, Philippines sort of comparable but it was not this bad, maybe because I didn’t understand […]

Misconception about SLOVENIA

Do you still remember an eye-opening story of Yessi about misconceptions proven wrong? By travelling, she got to prove that Malaysia is in fact a multi-cultural country that doesn’t judge the women by the way she dresses, well at least not as much as what we experience in our home country in a daily basis. […]

Misconception about MALAYSIA

Here in Indonesia, we have a proverb saying “tak kenal maka tak sayang”. That means, you can’t be sure about the good and the bad of something (or someone) before you really know it (her/him/them) in person. We had been introduced to this proverb since we were kids. Unfortunately, most of us did not embrace […]

There is a stereotype saying that Indonesians are blessed with the ability to swim considering the large water area that we occupy on the globe. Some say that swimming is our nature to survive from Tsunami. As a scientific person, I used to believe that I would never drown in the ocean because the average […]

Travel Diary Kuala Lumpur – Diversity in Harmony

Despite the routine conflict between Indonesia and Malaysia, Kuala Lumpur is my one of the favorite city destination in South East Asia. It is a budget friendly city with decent transportation system. Talking about budget, in Singapore, I spend minimum 10 SGD (around IDR 90,000) for a meal while in KL, I only spend half […]

Travel Diary The Analogy of Sunset in Firenze

I want to see the sunset from Piazzale Michelangelo! Right at noon in summer, I arrived in the capital city of Toscana. Had to spend the first 30 minutes in Stazione Santa Maria Novella trying to navigate to which direction the Hotel Panama was. There was no free-wifi and as far as I remember, the […]

Travel Diary Three Seasons in Paris

When most people have an American dream, I have un rêve Parisien. The main motivation for me to explore Europe was Paris and the reason why I targeted it to be in 2012 was simply because of the Mayan doomsday rumour. I didn’t want to die before stepping my feet in Paris. Early September, the […]
