Hello, my name Intan Putri Rastini and I can say that I am half Balinese half Javanese. Both of my parents are Balinese but they live in Java island.
I was born and raised in a city called Surabaya, and I love it. Then when I was a toddler my family and I moved to a town named Sidoarjo. Sometimes me and my family had holidays in Bali, Bandung and Jakarta because we have families there.
I spent my study stages in primary schools at Sidoarjo, then I chose a university in Surabaya, ITS, and I dropped out. Later on I continue studying in a college, Surabaya Hotel School without an official graduation. I did freelance jobs at a few hotels or catering services in either Surabaya or Sidoarjo.
There was a time before I entered the university, I stayed in Jakarta for a while. And as I predicted, I always love big cities.
In my twenties, I moved to Bali for fulfilling a job offer. I quit my job and went back to my home in Java. In the next year afterwards, I was purposed and got married. Ever since, I live in Bali now with my new family.
We live in a quite remote village in Tabanan, Bali. It’s Banjar Dinas Angkah Gede. Way very different from big cities I ever live or visit, it is approximately 8 km to reach the nearest traditional market and shop complex.
In this blog archived my posts from 2011 to 2013. But there’s missing, no post in 2012 at all! Why? Because I did blogging in my tumblr blog instead. Really I lack of consistency! asgarden.tumblr.com contains my after-wedding life and about my first pregnancy. I think Tumblr is a more fun blog rather that WordPress and Blogspot, so I fill my tumblr blog with fun stuff and it is delivered in fun version.
When I was in junior high school, I also write blogs:
they contains not much. Only a few posts of my old thoughts and all about my interests at that age 😀
And then when I was in senior hi:
it contains mostly IT lesson requisitions. In senior hi I was asked to represent my school in a blog competition together with my IT teacher and two boys as a team, but we didn’t win it 😛
The man who first introduced me to IT: email, forum and blog is my father.
where I live now with my new family….
It is like in the jungle surrounded with many hills.
This time I work at a learning center next to my village, called “Yayasan Eka Chita Pradnyan” I teach English there as a lead teacher. I also have international volunteers as my co-teachers. If you want to know my full story about me related to my job, please click these links below:
