Kenapa harus bikin E-Paspor? Karena butuh.Ngaku aja, kalau harus urusan sama birokrasi di Indonesia, siapa yang ga males?

Udah dari tahun lalu juga pengen urus e-paspor tapi karena di Bali belum bisa (sampai hari ini baru bisa urus di Jakarta, Surabaya, dan Batam) jadilah tahun…

Where were we? Ah! So I was in Ubud to meet up dear old friend and we went to visit this concept store. When I took a picture of the shop front, a man asked me... -- "Where do you come from?" satu suara dari laki-laki yang duduk di meja persis di depan toko Kelana. Ditanya pake bahasa Inggris suka gatel pengen pura-pura jadi orang mana gitu. But I am in the mood to be me, I feel…

I have one reason to visit Ubud today, to meet David Hartono. He was my first contact to Indonesian students studying in the Netherlands, we trade emails; I asked questions about living in Holland and studying at Saxion, he answered them and later introduced me to Arasastra Darmawan. Meity, focus, one story at a time. Okay, back to my trip to Ubud. At the end of the day, I couldn't wait to…

About: Moving In to 2016 - Meity Fitriani

No, this is not my 2016 resolution. I gave up the burden of having a resolution, it's too heavy and I am too lazy. This is a story; one about little steps plus one important jump that I made.  Last year, I went on a long trip in search of (what I thought to be) solitude. I found out that instead of solitude, I was just looking for a way to be myself again in as many ways as possible.…

Have you ever heard, or read, the famous quote saying, "'And, when you want something, all the universe conspires in helping you to achieve it.'? I remember reading The Alchemist and thought about few experiences I've had throughout my entire life. A friend of mine actually said, "The universe is adapting to our state of mind, when you feel like you're in love,…

Setahun yang lalu, saya ingat berkunjung ke Jalan Kartini untuk mengambil kaos Homicide dengan ancaman kalau ga buru-buru diambil kaosnya bakalan dikasiin ke orang lain sama Mang Juni. Saya datang setelah jam buka puasa dan di sana ketemu sama penghuni Jalan Kartini 21 plus Iyo, sang manager Taring dan idola para remaja. Setelah ngobrol kesana-kemari, ngebahas tragedi Camden yang bikin rame di…

My Story Behind: Berdua Saja (Payung Teduh) - Meity Fitriani

Ada yang tak sempat tergambarkan oleh kata Hopes, no matter how real, are not. Plans, no matter how detailed, aren't your reality. Dreams, no matter how beautiful, will vanish once you wake up. And us, no matter how hard we fought, is no longer there.  Ketika kita berdua Hanya aku yang bisa bertanya Mungkinkah kau tahu jawabnya I am desperate enough to keep on asking what is wrong,…

My Story Behind : Ruins (Polyester Embassy) - Meity Fitriani

Wise one comes  It was dark yet so loud. It was intimate although it also seemed like I couldn’t really be sure what’s the reason behind all that sudden warmth. So I was left out with wonder, were there even other people inside that dark square room when the loudness suddenly silenced as if someone’s had come and put time on hold. She makes me dizzy away She killed with her sight And…
