Things Indonesian

After seeing how much I have written for my Indonesia Banget post, I decided to make a special page for it. I will only copy-paste the post and closed the comment section of that post. From now on, everything Indonesian related will be shared here 🙂

What is Indonesia Banget?

Indonesia Banget can be translated as So Indonesia which means that I’ll be writing about things that define Indonesia…and hopefully it is something that can only be found in Indonesia. I’m not going to write only on the good sides of Indonesia but also on the not so good side of Indonesia…basically literally all things related to Indonesia.

This is number 0 because I’m not going to start writing about Indonesia yet, I want to start the 1st post on August 17.

Why August 17?

Because it is our Independence Day. We gained our Independent from Dutch and Japan on August 17, 1945. And for that reason, every single post of Indonesia Banget will be posted on 17, every month.

Why is it written in English?

Because if I wrote this Indonesian Language (Bahasa), it will be useless, the main idea is to share a bit about Indonesia to the whole wide world and hoping that people will be eager to visit this beautiful archipelago country. Although I’m writing it in English, that doesn’t mean you can not leave a comment in Bahasa, feel free to drop your comment in Bahasa, English or even Japanese (^_^)v

I hope I can use pictures that I shoot by my self, however some things are just too difficult to find, so I will rely on google 😉

I will be using the image above in every Indonesia Banget post.
