About Us

Indonesian Expatriates Forum is initiated by Anita Mckay who has a big dream of connecting Indonesians who have experiences of living overseas. The mission of this forum are mainly to share stories and to network globally. Later on, hopefully, this forum also can provide useful information and assist you personally to embark a big step leaving our beloved country.

At the moment this forum has two contributors, Anita Mckay, who has recently moved to Scotland, UK, and Andie Summerkiss, who is now residing at the Philippines. We both strongly encourage other Indonesians who have the similar experience to join us and share the stories to the world. Whether you are a student, a traveler, a partner, a husband, a wife, a parent, a professional, a seasoned or returned expat, you always have something to share. Let’s start now!

Please don’t hesitate to link my blog. Thank you for leaving a message on my shoutbox

4. mamanya Rui - April 1, 2008

Terima kasih sudah berkunjung di tempatku. Silahkan kalau blogku mau di-listing di sini.

5. yossy - April 1, 2008

kalo gak hub-nya ma ekspat, boleh ngelink juga gak?.. hehe

6. angryburger - April 3, 2008

this is a great & fun to read blog, ladies (found it by accident through bugilsnews). re: your last post, i’m actually an indonesian male blogger in Houston, TX but i’m not on either wordpress or blogspot, and mine is mostly just a compilation of funny stuff i found on the internet to share w/ my friends, so probably not the kind of typical expat/travel stories blog that deserves to be added to your list :-D. anyways, i’ll keep reading so keep up the good work!! πŸ™‚


7. finallywoken - April 3, 2008

@Angryburger: if it’s ok I will list your ‘compilation of funny stuff’ in our expat blog list. If you have stories to tell about living in Houston, please do share with us. πŸ™‚

8. finallywoken - April 3, 2008

@Angryburger again: I just went to check the Bugilsnews and found the link to this IEF. It’s very nice of them to put IEF link on their site. Guess I owe Bart a drink….

9. angryburger - April 3, 2008

heheh, alright, it’s at http://angryburger.livejournal.com/ . i do write about life in Houston (and before that, Michigan) every once in a while but most of that type of stuff are filtered for fellow lj users only. btw, is ‘finallywoken’ a jem reference or was that just a coincidence? πŸ™‚

10. finallywoken - April 3, 2008

@Angryburger: a bit of both, actually πŸ˜‰

11. teguhtimur - April 19, 2008

hei, blog yang menarik. boleh ikutan gak? kalau hanya jalan-jalan beberapa minggu untuk liputan jurnalistik bisa dianggap ekspatriat gak?

12. Irene - Mei 13, 2008

Terimakasih udah mampir di blog saya πŸ˜€ salam kenal

13. echa - Mei 17, 2008

Ide bagus nih…Kayaknya akan sangat bermanfaat nantinya
Tapi kenapa dalam bahasa Inggris ya?
Kalau informasi yang dibagi di sini untuk orang Indonesia, apakah semua orang Indonesia yang tinggal di LN bisa bahasa Inggris?
Atau ini informasinya untuk siapapun itu di seluruh dunia yang ngexpat?

14. SyL - Mei 19, 2008

monggo, link blog saya
salam dari hanoi, vietnam

15. aRdho - Mei 20, 2008

Jumpa lagi,

Saya datang dari Slovenia.
I am Borut, aged 30, and I came across your website while I am browsing for data about jobs for expats in Indonesia. I was in Jakarta in January. Namely, I am looking for a job in Indonesia because I want to move there to live.
My aim to write is to ask you, where can I get useful info about jobs for expats.

Thank you to whom sends me any useful information.
