Anna’s Birthday: Content and Media Writing Workshop for Our Visual Impaired Friends at Yayasan Mitra Netra

Her name is Anna Karenina.

The first time I met her, I thought she would give me a hard time with her intimidating look. It was during a job interview in the previous company that I used to work for.

I didn’t have any experience as a sales person before, but despite everything, I finally landed the job in this company and she had become my direct supervisor. Never thought that I would find a soul sister in her. There was Om Frans, one of

There was Om Frans, one of our colleagues who actually saved our phone numbers under the name of Anna-Marya just because we were THAT attached with one and another.

On 6th March 2017, she has turned 30. And to welcome her 30s, she’s got a special project that you can participate in and we hope you can!

Hong Kong: Go Horse Racing in Happy Valley Clubhouse!

Recently, I visited Hong Kong for my birthday trip. I had planned the trip since last year and I chose Hong Kong for some reason.

Since my birthday falls in February, I know that it is going to be in the winter in some places. And being a woman with a cold heart with a hot body myself (lol), I chose Hong Kong because living in a tropical place, I just wanted to take a break from the usual humidity in Jakarta and be in somewhere cold to celebrate my birthday.

After Hong Kong, I was off to Thailand to meet my siblings there so we could celebrate it together. I didn’t need visa to get to Thailand, but if you happen to be in Hong Kong and plan to reroute your journey and get to Thailand, just know you can get your Thai visa easily in Hong Kong.

At first I thought it would be my first snow experience, but due to lack of research, it seems that snow doesn’t fall in Hong Kong. At least not on my birthday, obviously. :p

But no worries, I forgive the snow for not falling in Hong Kong since at least with the winter season there, I could get a chance to go out with my winter style. You know, coat, boots and stuff!

I mean, you know wearing those stuff can be a cause of mockery in Jakarta right?

Mersin Narenciye Festivali

This post is long overdue as I visited Mersin Narcenciye Festivali (English: Mersin Citrus Festival) in 2013. But I suppose it is worth to share as I am quite sure not so many of you have heard about Mersin, let alone the festival.

When it comes to travel in Turkey, people will automatically have Istanbul in mind. That’s for sure, Istanbul is so hard to miss and there are many things to do in Istanbul.

But then to say the least, Turkey has so much more to offer than Istanbul. In my list alone, I am still yet to get around Cappadocia in the hot air balloon, although I’ve been to Denizli to enjoy Pamukkale.

But this time, allow me to promote a city that is usually under the radar: Mersin.

According to Wikipedia, Mersin is a large city and a port on the Mediterranean coast of southern Turkey. This port is an important hub of Turkey’s economy as it has the largest seaport in the country.

Mersin is located in the Asian part of Turkey, which is not so far from Syria by distance. The last time I went there, there were so many Syrian people in the city that I found more people speaking in Arabic than Turkish.
