Beggars are very common in our lives, especially in Indonesia. I don’t know what it is like in other countries, maybe it will be the same in other developing countries. Let's look at Depok, as one of the cities in West Java as it is actually very close to Jakarta. You can find beggars everywhere in the city I live. They beg in the streets, in front of the shops, and come house-to-house to get money. Beggars come in many forms of people. She or he can be a child, teenager, or...

As I have written in my previous post, Indonesia is experiencing some natural disasters; big floods, volcanic eruptions, landslides, and occasional storms. These disasters have caused so much loss to a lot of citizens in Indonesia. The victims may directly be affected, but other groups of people also feel the disadvantages of these disasters. It becomes harder to reach several places, the train cannot be used because its rail is covered by water from floods, trading activities are...

As a young man who is passionate about history and culture, I try to explore all Indonesian cultures. Although Indonesia has diverse cultures, I don’t stop my to understanding the details of some of the wonderful cultures. My unforgettable experience on watching Perang Obor or the war of the torch, I was impressed by how dangerous this culture is still allowed to be conducted. This tradition is from the Jepara Municipality, Central Java. It was very harmful because the war used a torch to dry...

Let's vote! That's the translation of the video's title. And yes! Yesterday was the general election peeps! I am so happy to share with you my first time ever involved in such a big event, on a national scale, which happens once every five years! Personally, celebrating the coming of a general election in 2014 was such a great honor. This is my first time I contributed to give my voting right. Although most people above my age said that the atmosphere during the time of thi...

I live in the Republic of Indonesia. As an Indonesian citizen, I love my country so much, but I really regret what happened to Indonesia today. Many state officials are supposed to represent the people in the government and not corrupt the country. They take a lot of state money that could be used to help people who are experiencing a shortage, especially in an economically deficient state. I also feel sad because here, they just sentenced several people to prison for several years...

This is such a perfect week for me, because I got a chance to join to the very 1st UNICEF Activate; Innovating for Children – Innovating for Equity by UNICEF Indonesia to celebrate the 25th Convention on the Rights of the Child. It was held on April 23rd, 2014 at Erasmus Huis, Jakarta, Indonesia. As a youngster, I feel really happy because there were many other youth that came to that place with the same purpose as me. We wanted to be inspired, to be involved and to be motivated...


Not only a great impact on revenue, job creation, and the value of exports, the creative economy is also important towards contributing to the welfare and sustainable development. It constitutes the result of a recent study of UNESCO and UNDP. About 16 years later, the term creative industries became a warm conversation in the realm of economics in Indonesia. It also indicates that Indonesia has missed more than 16 years in the development of creative industries. Some policy breakt...
