Andante House: The Little Japanese Village in Hualien, Taiwan

Andante House and Restaurant is actually two separate buildings, the houses and the restaurant, located within a-zone Hualien cultural and creative industries park which was built about 100 years ago on 3.3 hectares land.

I can say that I am fortunate enough to be one of the billions of people that currently residing in Indonesia. For the last few years, I have been actively exploring my home country, however, I think I have not even seen 1/4 of whole Indonesia yet. There are still far more to explore – to see and to do in this country. Indonesia is a country with the largest archipelago in the world with more than 17000 islands and islets. According to this information by Good News from Indonesia, we need at least 37 years to explore all the islands in Indonesia. So, counting the years I have spent, it is no wonder I only have covered a very small part of the country.

Anugerah Pesona Indonesia #APIawards2020

There is an event named Anugerah Pesona Indonesia (API) which is held annually so far in Jakarta since 2016. I get to know about it probably only three years ago. ‘Anugerah’ means grace, while the most appropriate translation in English for ‘Pesona Indonesia‘ I think will be wonderful Indonesia. I haven’t figured out the proper name in English. Anyway, there is more important information to share rather than discussing the correct translation for the name itself.

Every year since 2016 when it was first held, there has been more than 115 destinations in 15 categories that made it to the nomination list. You may find out more about last year winners and previous years on Anugerah Pesona Indonesia website. I learn that one of the advantages which is also the purpose of this Anugerah Pesona Indonesia (API) Awards is to provide a platform for the locals, travellers or visitors to nominate places that they think it may have the potential. After that, all the submissions will be selected carefully by the committee before it goes to the nomination list for the audience to vote.

More information about this award event, please visit their Anugerah Pesona Indonesia website. It is in Indonesian, you will need Google to translate if you don’t understand Indonesian.

How to Vote in Anugerah Pesona Indonesia 2020

From the nomination lists, I become to know more about Indonesia. Be it about the local culinary, cultures, places and activities that I have never even heard before but it probably has been there all these times.

Every year or even maybe every few months, there are always new places around Indonesia to be discovered. Initially, maybe it is only known by the locals who stay around the area and little did they know that the place has the potential to be a tourism spot until someone intentionally or unintentionally shares the information out. After that, the place becomes known by the public and people from other places or provinces start visiting as well. The area gradually gets developed, more job opportunities become available for the locals and eventually the development of this area brings a positive impact on the tourism industry as a whole.

However, how much can one or a group of people do? Considering Indonesia comprises many big and small islands, the richness of the culture, and the beauty of nature – over the mountain, into the deep ocean, it is plenty to see, do, and tell. Unless we have a hundred over years to live on, maybe, we can discover the place one by one with the time we have. However, the reality is, it is impossible.

So, do you see your hometown in the nomination lists? Or perhaps any destination activities that you think it is well-deserved to be the winners in the respective category? Personally, I am proud of every individual and personnel that have gathered efforts to make this event happens. Because at the end of it, winning is just a bonus but the enthusiasm towards the whole process of promoting and contributing, those outweigh everything. So, Are you ready to do your part to vote?

I love nature and I wish to swim with whales one day. If I am not exploring and working in front of my laptop, most likely I will spend the day trying out new recipes or spending time with family or friends.
