what is home
I was born & raised in Jakarta, Indonesia, but work brought me to Bangkok, Thailand, where I’ve lived for the past 5 years.
Although Thailand is not far from Indonesia, a mere 3.5 hours flight, and people and places are pretty similar, I still find living in this country an exciting experience. Learning new language, new culture, making new acquaintances, trying local cuisine, exploring new places, it’s all enthralling
Despite the novelty though, there’re always things so familiar, that can’t help but make me feel I’m at home. The same thing, actually, when I travel and visit even more distant, more foreign places, some basic things about people will always make feel at home. In fact, I think I’ve always been at home, here, and just about anywhere. Lately I find that going places is just like wandering to the different corners of my house that is not my ‘usual’ corner, but still at home nonetheless. So now I’m just looking forward to go and stay to more new corners I’ve never been before….
