… was given the name “Novriana Dewi” by my parents and I never actually asked what the meaning is. My guess is because I am a second child and was born in November though 😁 I spent my childhood in Pekanbaru, Riau, until I graduated senior high school (SMUN PLUS Provinsi Riau), and then went through more or less 4 years in Universitas Pelita Harapan, Lippo Karawaci, finishing bachelor degree in Physics!
I am currently
a scholarship-supported master student (just enrolled as Doctor student this October -updated 2012) at The University of Tokyo, Japan a housewife with a PhD degree and still continuing my part time job at NHK Radio Japan, as radio announcer. Not a hardworking type of person but can be so ngotot if I want something. I am so lazy working on my research but spending so much time browsing the internet 😁 Confess that I’m a real procrastinator in almost everything, and might always be one 😅
I love eating, but not really into cooking. I enjoy doing household chores but actually not a very neat person. Above all, I like traveling and taking pictures. Willing to write down notes about places that I’ve visited, as well as the story of my culinary quest, in this blog as a remembrance. Would love to browse and put down some information about other spots as motivation for me to visit those places I’ve been dreaming of (lebay banget ya pake dreaming of 😁)
An Indonesian who actually hasn’t traveled a lot within my own country, yet. I wish I will get the chance to explore more. Sorry that some
most of my post will be written in Indonesian. It’s just easier to write it that way 😁 As now I’m staying in Tokyo, most of the places I’ll write down here might be around Japan. We’ll see in few years if I can make it to Europe or not. Stories about some other countries will follow too.
This blog is named “tabibitodayo” -taken from the Japanese word 旅人(read たびびと/tabibito)- which means “a traveler”, and “dayo” -taken from だよ- which is some kind of auxiliary used in Japanese language at the end of a sentence to emphasize things, like “lho” in bahasa Indonesia (I hope I am not mistaken with the definition 😁)
Around beginning of 2016, I moved the content of my culinary blog previously managed
poorly here to this current blog you are reading now. I thought it might be easier to have just one blog for both my traveling and culinary stories. I hope it will help me to post more frequent with more options of topics. That if I’m not too lazy, as always 😅
Anyway, I hope any story or information in this blog will be useful. Enjoy!! ^_^
PS: klo ada yang niat baca blog geje saiya lainnya ada di sini 😁
