About

Hi there, welcome!

Thanks for leaving a trace here ūüôā

I’m Yessi Pratiwi Surya Budhi. You can call me Yessi or simply Echi, my nick name.

I’m Indonesian born in Balige (a small town) in North Sumatra, just near Lake Toba—the largest volcanic lake in the world.¬†I studied there till¬†Senior High graduation, and¬†moved to Jakarta in 2003¬†for college at University of Indonesia. Too bad I¬†was not happy¬†with the major, so I¬†withdrew¬†myself and waited for the coming year¬†University entry test. While waiting for the same,¬†I worked¬†at Planet Baso – Dunia Fantasi Ancol as a waiter. Yeah, it was¬†the very time i realized that i have strong selling power.

In 2004, I made it to the college I applied for! So I am ¬†an Industrial Engineer.¬†During college years, I also¬†blogged at many channels for Asia Blogging for 2.5 years.¬†It was¬†one of¬†my passions, and I hope to¬†blog more¬†in the future,¬†by marrying it both with my passion in marketing if possible¬†ūüôā

Got accepted to Unilever Asia¬†(Singapore based) in Unilever Future Leaders Programme¬†¬†in June 2009 but started later in Singapore¬†by Sept’2009. Been rotated¬†& relocated¬†to different functions and countries–Lux Skin Cleansing Global, Pepsodent Toothbrush Regional Asia,¬†Pepsodent Toothpaste SEA, Sales in Indonesia and currently¬†live in Vietnam for P/S Toothpaste (local brand name for Pepsodent).

This blog is about my ups and downs in life. I share most of personal thoughts about anything.

During¬†spare time, I enjoy myself most. Travel around, enjoying bits of lonesome when far from families, and do social life to get acquainted.¬†Part of myself is so passionate towards¬†travelling, books, and photography. And these are where I escape most, apart from my private time with Him ūüėČ

Do stay in touch with me at Gosip Pasar¬†, ¬†Pernik Ilmu,¬†as well as social network on¬†Twitter, Facebook,¬†or LinkedIn ūüôā

Be blessed!
