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


Celebrating Life, Surviving Breast Cancer


October is almost gone and what a busy month!

I have been working on so many event campaigning Breast Cancer Awareness Month and I really appreciate the love, the attention and the support from many of you, dear friends. As a breast cancer survivor, I know how things can be super tough while fighting those cancer cells. Any love and support will certainly help us get through it.

I had and will have more sharing sessions in the fight against breast cancer. Some are conducted in IG Live, some through Google Meets with Google Local Guides across the world. I sincerely hope that this series of sharing session will bring benefits to those who need more information about how to early detect, avoid, recognize, and treat breast cancer.  If you are available, come and join us. Here's the information on the meet - up we will have. CLICK HERE.  

Meanwhile, the preparation for our Wellington assignment is getting more and more nerve-wrecking. I know I will be juggling with my time between taking care of my kids' school and all their needs, finishing the ongoing works in the office, cleaning up the house, packing, selling the car, advertising our house for rent and attending all those farewell parties. Hangin' there, Indah LOL. I am overwhelmed by the love and the support from everyone. I can't never thank you all enough. 

And now, it's time to PARTY! join us in

World Cancer Day and Lovepink Indonesia, Wonderful Community Supporting Breast Cancer Patients, Survivors and More

World Cancer Day 2021


World Cancer Day 2021 is here!

Every February 4th, the world commemorates the World Cancer Day. 

Cancer, has long been known as one of the scariest diseases. Up til now, statistic shows that approximately 9.6 million people passed away due to cancer each year. Four millions among them prematurely decease with the age ranging 30 - 69 years. We see more and younger victims affected by cancer. With this daunting phenomenon, we need to continue raising awareness about the danger of cancer and what we can do to fight it back and to prevent it. Moreover, we also need to support one another, as there are more and more cancer warriors, fighters, and survivors. And everyone can help of course... through your social media platforms, local communities, and your family.

I support World Cancer Day 2021!

Statistic shows that cancer kills more than AIDS, Malaria, and tuberculosis. Even when these three deadly diseases are combined. Sadly, 70% of those cancer patients reside in developing countries, including Indonesia. However, it is noted that 43% of cancer can be prevented, among others, by reducing alcohol and tobacco consumption, reducing the exposure to cancer triggers, joining vaccination programs and living a healthy life obviously. For sure, the numbers of cancer patients will increase if we don't take any preventive measures, including through awareness raising programs.

Back in 2019, I celebrated the World Cancer Day with so many survivors in Jakarta, parading in Bundaran HI, one of the landmarks of Jakarta ( Read  WW: World Cancer Day 2019 in Jakarta, Indonesia). But then 2020 and 2021 was marked with the pandemic and we didn't have our usual event to mark this important day for us. This is indeed the great opportunity to support the awareness raising campaign on the fights against all types of cancer.

Speaking of support, as a breast cancer survivor, I would love to introduce you to Lovepink Indonesia.

Have you heard of Lovepink Indonesia before?

Remember the Pink Virtual Walk which was held on October 4th, 2020? 

"Halo teman - teman, apa kabarnya? Tahu ngga kalau  Bulan Oktober diperingati sebagai Bulan  Peduli Kanker Payudara sedunia. Maka dari itu, Lovepink Indonesia ingin mengadakan acara Indonesia Goes Pink 2020 dengan menyelenggarakan Pink Virtual Walk untuk Breast Cancer Awareness. 

Beautiful face of Chelsea  E. Ihsan, Indonesian famous movie star, is smiling sweetly on the video I watched at Instagram. Chelsea, the ambassador of Lovepink Indonesia, has long been known as one of the Indonesian celebrities who is highly committed to the fight against breast cancer.  She has staunchly supported her mom in battling cancer and her mom is one of the founders of Lovepink Indonesia. I am so touched when she passionately showed here support to her mom, her mom's friends and all Lovepink Moms as well as breast cancer survivors across the nation.  She said " Your fight is my fight!" and I feel like 

As a breast cancer survivor myself, I am honoured to join this supportive and wonderful community. And let me introduce you to Lovepink Indonesia.

Lovepink indonesia (source: http://www.lovepinkindonesia.org/)

Lovepink Indonesia is a non-profit organisation which focusses on awareness raising activities on the early detection of breast cancer through breast self-exam, or in Bahasa Indonesia, SADARI (Periksa Payudara Sendiri), as well as clinical breast exam or SADANIS (Periksa Payudara Secara Klinis), as well as accompanying those fighting breast cancer. Lovepink is a community and survivor-based organization which focuses on all the supportive efforts to breast cancer patients and survivors.

Sebagai organisasi nirlaba yang berfokus pada kegiatan sosialisasi deteksi dini dengan cara SADARI (Periksa Payudara Sendiri), SADANIS (Periksa Payudara Secara Klinis), dan juga berbagai progam pendampingan bagi sesama perempuan yang menderita kanker payudara, Lovepink telah banyak melakukan berbagai kegiatan yang meningkatkan kesadaran kita semua tentang bahaya kanker payudara serta hal - hal penting yang perlu kita ketahui untuk menghindari maupun mengobatinya. Bukan hanya kepada perempuan, tapi juga kepada para pria dan anggota keluarga lainnya yang perlu memberikan dukungan kepada para penderita kanker payudara.

For sure, Lovepink Indonesia is a wonderful community supporting breast cancer patients, Survivors and more.

WW: My Journey of Fighting Breast Cancer

One of my biggest supporters, my dearest hubby


Recently I have been digging up my files and photos from my previous adventures and activities. I guess I keep saying that in my post during this pandemic LOL.

As October is celebrated as Pinktober as well in my house, I happen to see some photos taken during my 2-year treatment as breast cancer patient.

cheers from Obi and I .. one of my 6-hour-straight chemo episodes

It's amazing to see how photos brought back all the memories, nice and not-so-nice ones. I have to admit it was not always a rose-colored journey. There are times when I was not really myself and times when I got super tired, bored, and frustrated with everything I have to go through thanks to cancer.  


the blood bag I have to carry for 6 weeks :)


I remember vividly when the verdict came, one simple phone call from my GP that changed my life forever. I will never forget when I first walked in to the operating room for mastectomy, my first chemo, the radiation process and endless doctor's and hospital visit and so many more. I am so blessed and glad to be able to pass it all through with a big smile! Merci ya Rabb.

Here are a few photos from my journey of Fighting Breast Cancer and let's spread more awareness about breast cancer, in our own way. I want those fighting it, our Warriors, and those surviving it, will always support one another so that we all can finish the fight!

Never forget to do you self breast exam or SADARI, periksa payudara sendiri, as well as consulting your doctor for clinical breast exam regularly or SADANIS, periksa payudara secara klinis. Love yourself and your body, don't wait until it's all too late!

Join us on (almost) Wordless Wednesday and enjoy the 

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



Stick with me, October

October is leaving us and we have 2 month before 2020 is saying hello.
How time flies!
Even if we don't always have fun.

October has been lovely and crazily tiring for me.
I went to Geneve and New York City this month and the meetings were indeed back to back.
Needless to say we had a lot to cover but hey, I'm still alive and kicking :).

October is also special as I have participated in a seminar celebrating the Cancer month. Being a survivor, I shared my journey fighting breast cancer. And I was again so lucky to be able to join Making Strides against Breast Cancer in Central Park, New York City, flying far away from Jakarta, Indonesia.

Our warriors..
Moreover, my beautiful daughter, Nadine, participated in Tapak Suci national competition in Semarang, and we did have a blast. We had a road trip from Jakarta to Semarang. Will share more about it later for sure.

And now, let's have our weekly party with My Purple World, Oh My Heartsie Girls and Friends.
