Wonderful Wednesday with My Purple World, Oh My Heartsie Girls and Friends

July is approaching its ends and how I feel like I was racing with time! 

For sure this is the race I will not win but I'm fine with that. I just go with the flow and although I have so many things to finish before October, but I am optimistic things will be settled on time. So, as I mentioned last week in my previous post, we have received notification of the next place that will be assigned to me and my family. I guess I still haven't revealed where exactly is my next post but for sure I am super excited. 

Now we are so rushed in packing things up. It is always the exciting yet tiring time but after moving around 3 times, I guess we can do it quicker now. Perhaps, we will not bring the big items to the new country and stick to air cargo. The biggest home work we have is ensuring our home in Jakarta is ready to be rented. We might need to sell some items and keep the rest. Well, hang in there! It will be tiring and crazy but I bet I can manage that. 

cheers from me as one of LG Connect Moderators

Meanwhile, I am so happy and also excited to be selected as ono of the Local Guide Connect Moderators!

Celebrating Pinktober - Sharing & Caring session with Google Local Guides 


Celebrating Pinktober - Sharing & Caring session with Google Local Guides 

Hi, everyone!

I hope all is well and we can stay safe, happy and healthy wherever you are.

October has been celebrated as Breast Cancer awareness month. 

Cancer. Cancer. Cancer.

Six-letter word that instigate fear to many of us. 

One single word that changes your life forever.

Cancer, particularly breast cancer, has touched people’s lives.  Many of us have seen or ben through life-changing moments due to cancer. Be it breast cancer or any type of cancer, those diagnosed with it, and people surrounding them, will see some major adjustments and 'pause' in life. And cancer knows no boundaries. You can be young or old, educated or not, rich or poor. It can simply be anyone. It can be you, it can be me. And Google  Local Guides are no exceptions.

Whether you or someone you love has cancer, knowing what to expect can help us cope with this challenge and life-changing moments. From sharing information and experience about breast cancer and the fight against it, including the importance of early detection, diagnosis, and treatment options, this session will serve as a ‘sharing & caring’ session for Google Local Guides whose lives have been touched by breast cancer.

Together we can provide support to those cancer warriors, as well as learn how to take care of ourselves and take necessary actions to prevent and ensure early detection. Furthermore, we can identify health facilities & institutions as well as communities that provide care for and support breast cancer. And more importantly, we can show our support to those who are still fighting it. 

That's why we invite Google Local Guides to Join us on Google Meet on Thursday, October 29th, 2020 at 8 PM UTC + 7 and let’s talk about breast cancer ๐Ÿ’–๐ŸŽ€

The Google Meet link for the meeting was also provided ( )

And we invited our friends to ๐Ÿ’–๐ŸŽ€๐ŸŒธ WEAR PINK ๐Ÿ’–๐ŸŽ€๐ŸŒธ. Or anything in PINK ๐ŸŽ€ during the meeting.

As a Google Local Guide, I  @indahnuria, a breast cancer survivor, became the host & shared my personal fight against breast cancer. While our dearest doctor LG @doc_dells shared some valuable insights from medical point of views about breast cancer and . Then our dearest friend  Google Local Guide from India @shreeya added to the voice of her own journey in accompanying her beloved mom battling cancer and gave some highlighting points to always remember.


Let’s fight breast cancer!

The meeting run well and we discussed a lot about breast cancer and many interesting aspects about it, starting from the symptoms, the treatments and medication, the psychological impacts and the support of the family as well as people around us.

Breast cancer has long been known as one of the silent killers

I shared stories, photos and video about my struggle  against breast cancer. The struggle from July 2014 as I was first diagnosed with breast cancer and continue fighting till now.

From one little lump that changed my life to the series of treatment I have got to do to eliminate cancer cells from my body. From the consultations to the joy of joining such supportive communities sharing the same passion about fighting breast cancer. From tons of pills I have to take to mind-blowing questions and contemplation I got to do.

Support is one of the immense helps we, cancer patients and survivors, always need. I am super lucky to have my hubby, two wonderful munchkins, family, friends, colleagues and even strangers.

❤️ Stay safe, happy and healthy, everyone ❤️

COLORFUL INDONESIA - 17AN (TUJUH BELASAN) – The Notes from the Celebration of Indonesia’s 75th Anniversary with Google Local Guides


Colorful Indonesia - the Celebration of Indonesia's 75th Anniversary

COLORFUL INDONESIA - 17AN (TUJUH BELASAN) – The Notes from the Celebration of Indonesia’s 75th Anniversary with Google Local Guides


Hello everyone...

Hope everyone is safe, happy and healthy amidst the pandemic that still run rampant around us.

August is almost gone and I have to admit that this month has been very colorful

 If you were asked, what you have done to your country, what would be your answer(s)?

That you have loved it with all you heart and soul?

That you have defended it in various occasions and platforms?

That you have tried to do your best to make your country proud?

That you have studied hard to ensure you can give the best to your country?

That you have contributed, in your own way, to the progress on the ground?

That you have promoted your country wherever you go?

That you have proudly speak your national language and teach it to your fellow foreign counterparts?

That you have loved its tremendous culture and be proud of it?

That you have always cooked your national or traditional food you love so much?

That you will continue to look for ways to improve your skills and share your passion about your beloved country to the world?

The list can go on and on and on obviously.

And that’s why, in the spirit of making the celebration of our Independence Day more meaningful, Jakarta Local Guides, together with Indonesia Local Guides, convened a special meet – up, COLORFUL INDONESIA17an (read: TUJUH BELASAN).

Welcoming the 75th anniversary of the Independence of the Republic of Indonesia, Local Guides throughout Indonesia proudly invited all Local Guides to participate in the Virtual meet up which was held on the August 17th 2020 at 07.00 PM Indonesia time.


We celebrated Indonesia’s 75th Anniversary or the Independence Day together with Local Guides from Indonesia as well as from different corner of the world. Friends from India, Thailand, Peru, Malaysia, Pakistan and others join our celebration. Some friends from Indonesia even joined the meet - up while they were in the middle of the road, heading back to Jakarta.

It was fun, hassle-free and joyous celebration, filled with interesting history, fun-fact about Indonesia and its struggles for independence, quizzes and songs, and endless photo sessions.

We started the meeting at 8 PM by singing our national anthem, Indonesia Raya. The music was played and the lyrics were provided so everyone who attended, including those who are not Indonesians, could follow and felt the vibe.


Nothing beats the feeling of patriotism and the love of your country while you are singing the national anthem! For sure, my dearest Indonesian colleagues sang the anthem with their hearts, I myself was choked with mixed feelings of pride and optimism.



It was super special as well as we invited Local Guides who participated to wear Indonesian traditional costumes. As the theme for this celebration is "Colorful Indonesia", we were very grateful and appreciative as the meet-up participants wore or showed traditional clothes during the meet-up. Of course it was not mandatory but I managed to wear Siger Lampung, the traditional headdress from Lampung, Indonesia (my beloved hometown) with its famous and elaborate Tapis Lampung, the hand-woven traditional fabric from Lampung, using golden threads and colorful patterns in purple, red and gold. 

Meanwhile my dearest co-host   Radja Sitanggang looked super cool with his Bataknese attire (from North Sumatra, his origin) in black and gold. Rahmat, our super talented and super helpful friend (to whom we owed his amazing works for presentations and videos) wore Udeng, a special headdress for male from Bali.   Jean looked beautiful in Balinese attire with that lovely frangipani on her hair. Mas Brian   from Malang was showcasing a special head scarf from Java I believe. Many wore Batik, our UNESCO-World-Oral and Intangible Heritage of Humanity like Pak  Budi and many others.

We had presentations from Munawar of Aceh and Jean as well.

Munawar eloquently talked about the beauty of Aceh and all its famous coffee, food and of course, the beauty of Acehnese ladies. I couldn’t wait to come and visit Aceh myself!

And Jean successfully made us crave to go to Bali and enjoy its endless beauty. Never get enough of it.


Together, we shared more of what independence means to us and how colourful Indonesia can stay united after its independence in 1945.

We walk through some highlights of beautiful Indonesia, particularly to historical places (mostly in Jakarta and the surrounding cities like Rengasdengklok) to see its amazing stories and landscapes. Some historical buildings in Jakarta are the witness of Indonesia’s struggles towards independence.

In addition to that, we celebrated the cultures, particularly the ones that become sort of traditions during the 17an or the celebration of Indonesia’s independence, like decorating the gate in your neighborhood with Red-and-white theme, fun traditional games with prizes, parade, flag-hoisting ceremony, and so much more. Although the pandemic is still rampant and in many cities these traditions were not done this year, but we still have vivid memories of how fun those games were during 17an. How it brings me back to my childhood with all those fun – yet – hilarious games. Not to mention culinary, traditions and friendly people, including Indonesian Local Guides :). For sure, these are wonderful aspects that Local Guides from all over the world will certainly enjoy and cherish! Again, Rahmat had done a brilliant job for preparing the presentation. 

Then we also had photo competition where Local Guides were invited to send their favorite photos showcasing Indonesia or following the theme of Indonesia’s Independence Day.

We had many cool entries and the winner is Nabhan Ahmad Ludihanto! Yaaaay...congratulations.

Of course, the meet-up won’t be complete without any quizzes. We had fun throwing trivia questions from the presentation, like how many islands Indonesia has, the names of Indonesian heroines from Aceh, the names of beaches in Bali, and so many more. For the prizes, they got tumblers, t-shirts, and packages of traditional food and coffee from Lampung! Then, we had Kahoot quiz as well, packed with Indonesian – related questions. Fun, fun, fun.

In addition to that, we actually had a challenge for non-Indonesia participants. You know what the challenge was? To sing any Indonesian songs or any songs related to Indonesia for us. Just like a gift to Indonesia. But perhaps the challenge was too hard LOL, none could finish it. Except @Ant_Bad_Yogi     who sang Happy Birthday to us, and I guess to me as well who celebrated my birthday on August 11. Thanks Ant for the fun! Then we had @gurupriya , my dear @anil and Ma @RosyKohli for joining us as well together with others.

We managed to sing together as well. Tanah Pusaka was the song we chose, as we were so moved by its deep lyrics. I almost cried singing it together with my fellow Indonesian Local Guides. It was indeed a great moment.

For us, our homeland will always stay in our heart. 

Borne in our soul.

And stay there till the end of time.

I personally have been traveling and residing in many parts of the world.

But my heart belongs to INDONESIA.



Seperti syair lagu cantik ini, Tanah Airku

Walaupun banyak negeri kujalani
Yang masyhur permai dikata orang
Tetapi kampung dan rumahku
Di sanalah ku rasa senang

Tanah ku tak kulupakan
Engkau kubanggakan

Tanah ku yang kucintai
Engkau kuhargai


And here's the free translation to the lyrics:

Even though I have traveled to many countries

The famous ones they said, beautiful and prosper

But my home, my village and my homeland

That's where I feel happy

My land I will not forget

I'm proud of you

My land that I always love

I will always appreciate you


Happy 75th Anniversary, Indonesia celebrating Indonesia's Independence in Switzerland

All in all, it was a great meet-up!

Thank you so very much for joining us, dear Local Guides and friends!

Hope we all can benefit from this meet-up and see you around on the next one!



Wonderful Wednesday with My Purple World, Oh My Heartsie Girls, and Friends

Indah Nuria Savitri Google Local Guide level 10

What a week!

Been coming to the office several times and joined endless webinars and virtual meetings.
I am tired!
But I know I have to get used to all this 'new normal' .

Back to the office is not that bad all but I have to say I am not a fan of 3-4 hours straight of webinars and virtual meetings. Not healthy at all. I hope we can come up with something about it and things will get better soon.

Meanwhile, the kids are finishing their final tests and soon will be having their break. Well, they have been enjoying their study from home sessions and I guess we will continue it until the end of the year. Perhaps. If things are not getting better earlier or even way later.

I have been busily enjoying Google Local Guide Connect and I have been joining some fun virtual meetings in this platform. Are you familiar about Google Local Guide? Do you see photos and reviews on Google Maps and actually consult it when you want to go somewhere? Well, those photos and reviews are coming from us, the Local Guides :). I have tons of photos taken here and there and I do share some to Google as well. 

I am now a Level 10 Local Guides with more than 19 thousands (19, 092 photos to be exact) photos shared with more than 73M views. Well, I never thought it was going to be like that :). So far. I do enjoy it and if you have some times or if you are also Google Local Guide, come and visit my page at Local Guide Connect. I guess I will write it down separately about it.
