Navigating Life

September 11, 2017 • English, Self Reflection, Uncategorized, Work Life

I know I have passed one quarter of a decade in this world already. I know I have grown up and matured living as an adult in an adult life. Still, often than not, I find it difficult to live the adult life like everyone else does. I feel like I don’t belong there. A […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]


June 28, 2016 • Experiences, Traveling

Waktu yang dinanti-nanti akhirnya tiba! Waktu di mana aku tak perlu lagi bergelut dengan kemacetan dan berbagai kegilaan Jakarta. Tak terasa sudah 8 tahun sejak beranjak dari Bandung dan diam di Jakarta. Padahal salah satu cita-cita aku adalah untuk mengelilingi Nusantara dan dunia. Cukup sudah. Kini saatnya aku berangkat meninggalkan kota Jakarta. Sampai jumpa lagi! […]

Purging Plurk Posts

June 20, 2016 • English, Online Life, Web Programming

After my last attempt to purge all my tweets at Twitter. This time I was removing all my plurks at Plurk, a less popular yet unique microblogging site. While there are apps for deleting entire tweets, I didn’t find one for Plurk, except a python script.¬†At first I was deleting it one by one using […]
