Where to Find Print Shop in Kuala Lumpur

March 19, 2017 • English, Satu Ransel, Traveling

When you are on a trip in Kuala Lumpur or you are a digital nomad like me (not really), sometimes you would need to print out some documents because you need to submit some documents, be it for visa or banking purpose or something else, and for some reasons they are not as technology advanced […]

Backpack Upgrade

December 3, 2016 • Satu Ransel, Traveling

It’s been quite a long time since I’ve been waiting to upgrade my backpack. A 7 days trip to Yogyakarta I did a year ago proofed me that my 20L Kalibre backpack is just enough for lightweight traveling in tropical climate. But when I canceled my homey apartment rental in Jakarta, sold all my furnitures […]

Tooth Surgery (Part 2)

October 27, 2016 • Braces Life, English

This is the second time I was going for a tooth extraction surgery. After the right side of my mouth recovered I am ready for another surgery. It’s not really fully healed as it will take about 4 to 6 months, but at least now I can eat and chew fried chicken happily with my […]

Tooth Surgery (Part 1)

September 29, 2016 • Braces Life, English

“I want to take out all these four wisdom teeth, Mr. Fajar” said my dentist. After listening to the explanations I agreed that there are more benefits to take out these late popping teeth. Both for my health and also for allowing more spaces to push back my teeth when doing braces. Alright so we […]

Wisdom Tooth Extraction

September 6, 2016 • Braces Life, English

One of my goals while I am staying in KL is not only to work and make money as much as possible, but also to do everything I wanted to do that I either kept delaying or just didn’t have a good opportunity to do back there in Jakarta. And now since I will be […]

Can you see the sky?

July 31, 2016 • English, Self Reflection, Work Life

When talking about dreams, one popular quote I often hear in Indonesia is to hang your dreams as high as stars in the sky. “Gantungkanlah cita-citamu setinggi bintang di langit.” Followed by a question, “What is your dream?” Most often this topic is addressed to students, especially during freshmen years.  Then as we graduate and […]

Releasing PopMenu to Public

July 29, 2016 • English, Web Programming

While cleaning up my harddisk, I found a personal project I have made in 2014. This mini project which I named it PopMenu is a jQuery plugin that lets you add right-click context menu (popup menu) to any HTML element on your web page. The plugin is fully functional. So rather than having it buried […]

Parks Parks Parks! Around Kuala Lumpur

If I have to say what one thing I like the most in Kuala Lumpur, it is about its parks! Especially because I was coming from Jakarta–before I got to KL–where parks are rarity. Indeed, for the last few years there have been new parks built in Jakarta. Since they are relatively new, you can’t […]

Mie Instan Rasa Indonesia

July 2, 2016 • Bahasa Indonesia, Experiences

Ketika sedang melihat-lihat rak mie instan di pasar swalayan, aku menjumpai produk Mamee Mie Goreng Indonesia. Eh tunggu dulu, gak salah ini rasa Indonesia? Padahal di Indonesia sendiri mie goreng ada banyak macam. Ada mie tek-tek, mie dog-dog, Indomie goreng spesial dan lain-lain. Seperti apa ya rasanya mie ini? Mari kita buka. Tidak seperti kebanyakan […]

Harga KFC di Malaysia dan Indonesia

Sebuah tempat makan yang tak bisa dihindari entah di negara manapun kamu berada adalah fast food. Entah itu McDonalds, Burger King, atau KFC. Karena belum lama ini aku makan KFC di Jakarta, dan kemudian makan KFC di Kuala Lumpur, maka masih teringat seperti apa rasanya dan apa bedanya KFC di kedua tempat tersebut. Super Besar […]
