Muto Tomu: An Idol Who Changed My Life

Muto Tomu: An Idol Who Changed My Life

It is time for me to tell another story of mine from my 2 months journey in Tokyo. As I had mentioned before, I went to Japan for my graduation trip and luckily I got an internship opportunity which made my trip even better.

But I have to be honest that one of my main purposes for this graduation trip is idol. I am a big fan of AKB48 since 2012 and I really wanted to experience their event which I had never been to, handshake event. I had planned to go to AKB48’s handshake event since 2014. Read the rest of this entry

Dare For Challenges: 2 Months of Internship in ICA Japan

Please allow me to write an English post about my internship experience in Tokyo for 2 months.

However, this time I would like to write a simple yet amazing story of mine during my internship at The Institute of Cultural Affairs (ICA) Japan. This post will be in English because I hope it will be useful for Indonesians and foreigners. Read the rest of this entry

Lika-Liku Dapatkan Visa Jepang 90 Hari

Lika-Liku Dapatkan Visa Jepang 90 Hari

Sudah lama tidak menulis di blog ini, kali ini saya akan menuliskan tentang bagaimana lika-liku mendapatkan visa Jepang 90 hari. Singkat cerita saya memang berniat untuk ke Jepang dalam waktu lama, entah itu untuk berlibur atau magang. Alhasil ternyata saya mendapatkan magang selama dua bulan dan pastinya saya butuh visa 90 hari.

Magang di Jepang? Bagaimana caranya?

Untuk bagian ini saya akan ceritakan di postingan lainnya, kali ini saya akan berfokus pada cerita visa. Kenapa lika-liku? Karena saya baru dapat visa H-1 keberangkatan itu pun setelah mendatangi langsung kedutaan. Read the rest of this entry

MOS dan Kaderisasi: Sudah Siap Melepaskan Tradisi?

Posted on

Masa Orientasi Siswa atau yang dikenal sebagai MOS saat ini semakin santer dibicarakan di sosial media. Semasa di SMA saya sendiri tidak pernah benar-benar merasakan masa tersebut, tapi kalau tidak salah ingat saya pernah merasakan masa-masa “dibodohi” dengan segala atribut sewaktu SMP.

Tapi semasa SMA sendiri saya merasakan suatu hal yang lebih intens, yakni kaderisasi. Tulisan saya ini akan lebih memfokuskan bagaimana refleksi saya tentang MOS, kaderisasi, dan pandangan personal ketika sudah menjadi alumni dan melewati proses “kaderisasi” tersebut kembali.

Tulisan ini akan bersifat sangat personal karena saya pun berusaha mengobservasi secara pribadi dari tren siswa SMA baru per tahunnya. Read the rest of this entry

Frequently Asked Questions: Ilmu Hubungan Internasional Universitas Indonesia

Halo, sudah sekitar 3 tahun yang lalu saya membuat tulisan tentang impresi dan pengalaman yang  didapatkan setelah masuk ke HI UI. Kemudian setelah itu komen saya pun dipenuhi oleh banyak sekali adik-adik yang penasaran dengan HI, terutama HI UI.

Sayangnya saya tidak dapat membalas satu persatu komen yang masuk dikarenakan kesibukan dan juga mood membuka blog yang cukup naik turun. Tapi sekarang saya sudah memasuki semester terakhir dan sedang menunggu waktu sidang skripsi. Di sela waktu saya yang cukup senggang, rasanya saya ingin membuat sebuah tulisan khusus. Tulisan yang ditujukan untuk menjawab pertanyaan yang kerap kali muncul tentang HI UI. Mari disimak!

Experiencing Journo’s life as an Intern in HaloJepang

Final year in university has super small numbers of credit which I should take on. Because on the previous semesters I had taken a lot of credits, I only have to take 3 credits for this semester which is in equal with one course. Thus, I decided to take an internship program because I have bunch of free time in a week. I tried to apply to several companies and at last I was accepted in HaloJepang(Media about Japan and Indonesia relations in Bahasa Indonesia) which is in affiliation with Daily Jakarta Shimbun(The one and only media in Japanese language which is published in Jakarta). I knew about the internship program in HaloJepang from an alumnae in my organization called ISAFIS(Indonesian Student Association of International Studies).

I’ve been in love with journalism since I was in Junior High School, so I think this Internship program is a great thing to do and I had been learning a lot during the internship program in order to improve my writing skill.

Japan: when 48 beyonds Idol, but New Friends

Posted on

Besides JUEMUN, I decided to go to Japan because I really want to go to the place where my favorite idols “48 Groups” belong to. I actually won the ticket for 2 shot events which was scheduled on June 29th. I have 3 tickets which are 2 tickets for Kikuchi Ayaka and 1 ticket for Murashige Anna. I was really excited to go to the 2 shot event, especially to meet my favorite Ayarin(Kikuchi Ayaka) who had just graduated from AKB48. However, it couldn’t happened. The event was postponed until the time which I’m not sure when it will be. The event was postponed because of the slashing incident in which 3 people were injured, two of them are AKB48 members. I was extremely sad to know that I couldn’t attend the event and meet my favorite idol. However, I couldn’t do anything but to enjoy my entire trip in Japan. Thus, I tried my best to find out any 48 events which I could attend while I was in Japan. I couldn’t do anything if I didn’t meet such amazing friends of mine.
