Skrill: Transfer Money Internationally From Indonesia, Hassle-Free!

In case you don’t know yet, not so long after I had a collaboration with Shi Hui for the post on Indonesian guys vs Singaporean guys, who knows that I end up dating the latter to prove the difference on my own?!

Well, if there’s any obvious difference between dating my current boyfriend and the previous ones, it’s actually the transparency about my vulnerability. The financial aspect, no matter how hard it is to admit it, is one of them.

I really want to act like I’m a strong, independent woman. But then there are times when I’m short on cash, especially a couple of months ago when my work was a little slower than usual. Last month, I had to borrow some money from my boyfriend.

If you don’t know me, you may think that shit like that occasionally happens in life. But if you know me personally, I suppose you know how embarrassing it could be for me. But hey, work has been quite busy again lately and I’ve paid back the money he loaned me. And it was my first time transferring money internationally from Indonesia. 🙂

I figured it might be helpful if I could write something about it. And how I’ve found a very helpful platform to help me transferring money overseas from Indonesia, hassle-free. And not just from Indonesia, as Skrill provides international money transfer services from many other countries too.

Review: Staycation at Best Western Premier The Hive, East Jakarta

Last month, I got the bad news about one of my friends getting terribly ill in Bogor. He was one of my ex-colleagues from the first airlines where I worked professionally. For that reason, my former colleagues and I arranged a surprise visit to his place on the 12th of this month.

The universe conspired as I got the invitation from Best Western Premier The Hive in East Jakarta to have a staycation the day before I got scheduled to go to Bogor. It was actually a perfect time, since I’m personally more familiar to get to Bogor from Jakarta instead of going there directly from Bandung.

So in this post, I’m gonna share with you the review of my staycation there. If some of you are currently planning to stop by Jakarta for a visit, you might as well want to take Best Western Premier The Hive for consideration to stay.

These days, more of us than ever before are booking flights to exotic distant locales, or strolling around ancient and world-famous cultural capitals, and are collecting the Instagram photos to prove it.
