Made in Russia

Sanction, sanction, sanction… Living in alienation under a deluge of sanctions sometimes has a silver lining. It means you must be super creative to fulfill the needs of your citizens under millions of boycotts that limit your opportunity to import products. And, in a country like Russia, where the government controls almost every aspect of its citizens' lives, the condition is far more complicated. Although the Russian government doesn’t block all western sites, such as Google or Amazon, we still have a problem with delivery and shipment. Some sites don’t provide shipment to Russia as their packages often disappear out of the blue with “the super service”…

No Picture, Please! How good are the museums in Vienna?

Everybody loves Vienna, except the person who wrote this post. That is the truth I must deal with. No matter how picturesque its buildings are, no matter how majestic its history is, Vienna is still not able to lure me. To reduce the impression I have towards this city, I even wrote a novel whose main character is from Vienna – a charming guy who speaks German and behaves like a gentleman.

Proses Pengurusan Visa Turis

Seperti mayoritas negara pada umumnya, Rusia juga menyediakan berbagai jenis visa yang bisa kita ajukan, mulai dari visa turis, visa kerja, hingga visa undangan. Proses pengurusannya juga tidak sesulit negara-negara bervisa lainnya. Dokumen yang diperlukan juga tidak setebal disertasi untuk S3. Jadi, selain nggak bikin abang-abang tukang fotokopi kaya, proses pengurusan visa ke Rusia juga nggak bikin kita botak dalam seketika. Sebelum mengajukan visa ke kedutaan, agaknya kita perlu bahas lebih dulu jenis-jenis visa, yang ditawarkan Rusia. Visa Turis Durasi visa turis di Rusia umumnya sama seperti negara lain, yaitu 30 hari. Nggak lebih, nggak kurang, dan nggak boleh nawar. Tapi, ada satu perbedaan yang amat mencolok…
