… was given the name “Novriana Dewi” by my parents and I never actually asked until now what the meaning is. My guess is because I am 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. 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 soooo much time browsing the internet. Maybe I really should take “social network” major, just like my husband always suggests 😁
Confess that I’m a real procrastinator in almost everything, and might always be one.. *sigh*
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 in this blog as a remembrance, and 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.
Btw, 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. With this I hope it will help me to post more often 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 ada di sini 😀
