Thanks for dropping by.
My name is Chrysant. I was born and raised in Manado, a nice little city located in north of Sulawesi, Indonesia. Although I love that city and have always lived there until I finished college, this blog is about my stories of living away from it – away from my nest, away from my hometown.
It started in 2005 when I was about to start one of the biggest adventures in my life: study in Holland. I got a scholarship from Nesso to study at ISS Den Haag for 16 months. Of course there were ups and downs, but Den Haag easily became my second home. I met my husband there, and together after we both graduated and moved back to Indonesia temporarily, we relocated to Albany New York and made it our home for 4 years. Now, we have returned to Indonesia and I am making Bali as my new home.
A friend of mine said that the problem about moving around a lot is that there are always going to be some places, some friends, some things that we’ll miss. I guess this is what this blog is all about; a blog of nice memories I gathered along the way; about new friendships, favorite places, interesting food, or even the beauty of things that we normally label as ‘routines’.
Maya Angelou said, you can never go home again, but the truth is you can never leave home, so it’s all right.
It’s all right.
