Are You Under or Over Insured? 

Hi you all!  It is me again writing for the blog.  grin

For the past few months my job had robbed me of my blogging time. Thus I was unable to post anything here. But I’m still around!

Then yesterday,  when Vita asked what should we post today,  I half intently browsed what this month is all about. I used the keyword “September is the month of what?”

Haha! Then I landed on this Wikipedia:


And guess what? With personal finance niche that I pick for my own blog,  I jokingly suggested to the admin what if the challenge for today is to ask the members of BEC tell us their opinion/experience regarding insurance?

Never thought that everyone would agree to use the topic. As it is a topic which not many of us familiar with.

Worth it vs Worthed

You really need to read this post from our mentor mbak Yo, about “Worthed vs Worth it”. You might need to take some time to get yourself used to ‘the right word’.. But this post is really *worth it*.🙂

Chez Lorraine

Infographic ini membahas Worth it vs Worthed dengan penjelasan lewat tata bahasa dan fonetis. Niat banget ya gw sampe bikin sendiri. Alasannya karena infographic lebih gampang dimengerti daripada tekst. Kalo ada yang mau tambah info, silahkan. Yang setelah lihat infographic ini tetep ngga ngerti, silahkan tulis pertanyaan dibagian komen. Yang mau share atau reblog, silahkan juga.

Worth it vs Worthed

Oh ya, gw juga pernah jelasin tentang boring, dateline dan gateway di 3 kata bahasa Inggris yang salah dieja.

About Holiday (EF 16.11 challenge submission recap)



Image from:

Wow, time flies! It’s already Friday again. As last Friday we already launched our EF16.12 challenge about “first time”, today it’s the time for reviewing the previous challenge, EF16.11: Holiday.

If you remember, we posted five pictures to select and write about. So let’s see… Nia chose the book picture, because it reminded her of her postponed holiday planning. So what does her post title “Otaru” mean, and how is it related to her holiday planning? Well..better read it by yourself🙂 You won’t regret it as there is another really nice picture Nia added to her post, which can tell you more about Otaru…

Uwi also picked the same picture, it’s that interesting isn’t it?!😀 She already have five books ready to spend the holiday with! Boy, but that’s only a thing among many things she wanted to do during the holiday: spending time with her family, blogging, and participating in blog competition (be aware that all these are nouns -as they are related to “things” from “many things”; they are gerunds! What is a gerund? Read here in our blog: Gerund, apakah itu? :D )

So? Let’s connect, learn, and have fun! We’re looking forward to see you there🙂


EF16.12 Challenge: Your First Time

Some said that first time is everything. It will last forever. Such as the first time we went to school, work, etc. Or even the first time you met your spouse – the one.

This week, we read news about first time to go to school. Some wrote that their children were very happy. And some not – they were afraid of the new environment.

I remembered my first time went abroad. It was scary. I never been abroad before, not even to Singapore. And at that time, I had to take flight to Malaysia then continued to Paris before landing at Monrovia, Liberia.

Can you imagine? My flight to Malaysia was delayed for about an hour. I had no clue whether I could catch the next flight. With zero experience, I was sitting down anxiously. I asked flight attendants several time – perhaps she felt annoyed by me.😀

As soon as the plane touched down KLIA, I rushed into the gate where my next flight waiting. And… you know what… Both flights were same airways. They waited for me and several others from Indonesia. Thank God.

Kenapa Baca Buku Berbahasa Inggris?

Buat teman-teman yang masih berpikiran: “Belajar Bahasa Inggris yang bener dulu deh baru ntar baca buku Bahasa Inggrisnya.”

Salah satu metode paling ampuh buat belajar Bahasa Inggris adalah dengan MEMBACA buku-buku berbahasa Inggris. Dengan membaca kita akan langsung berhadapan dengan pengaplikasian grammar, pemilihan kata dan bagaimana maksud sebuah cerita disampaikan.

Jadi masih mau nunda baca buku berbahasa Inggris?

Saya enggak pernah ikutan kursus, hanya belajar otodidak lewat baca manga dan nonton video (biasanya varshow Korea) dengan subtittle Bahasa Inggris. Lebih jauh, sejak mengenal komputer dan video game saat masih bocah dulu, saya berpikir kalau belajar Bahasa Inggris itu suatu keniscayaan. Untungnya iya. Jujur, saya pun sebenarnya enggak jago-jago amat, tapi kalau boleh songong, TOEFL bisalah di atas 500.

Dimulai dengan Metamorphosis-nya Franz Kafka dan The Book of Laughter and Forgetting-nya Milan Kundera, novella serta kumpulan cerpen hasil pinjaman dari Kineruku, dan keduanya hanya selesai kebaca setengah jalan, sejak setahun lalu, saya sudah membabat beragam buku berbahasa Inggris. Kebanyakan novel, kumcer, dan kumpulan esai. Baru berhasil mengkhatamkan Dubliners-nya James Joyce, itupun dengan terseok-seok, dan banyak enggak ngertinya karena bahasa Inggris-nya British banget (atau Irlandia?). Akhirnya mulai menikmati pas nyelesain novel Hard-Boiled Wonderland and the End of the World-nya Haruki Murakami. Untuk tips, membaca novel Inggris…
