Welcome to my blog!
My name is Meta (Meta M on my You Tube channel) – Metina Rachmatika (on my Facebook Page and Instagram).
This blog is for me to share on my personal experiences with you in the way I put together an outfit be it casual, sportive or chic, sexy, elegant – but with that understated-ness where others do not feel threatened being in your company as to steal the limelight amongst us women that has this underlining insecurity whenever we get together right?
First of all, let me introduce myself of where I’m coming from.
I am Indonesian but have lived out of Indonesia for many years at a long stretch and intermittently in the past as my adolescent years were spent in London, England.
Then after over 4 years there, moved back to Jakarta, Indonesia, but not long after, moved to live in Singapore. once temporarily and the other time, six years.
Prior to 6 years in Singapore, I lived in Los Angeles or California for a year.
I have been blessed to have travelled and visited many places in various countries as well as staying for at least a year in the countries as follows.
Then moved to Milan, Italy, for good which is my home base to this day, and as mentioned above, I’d travelled and lived in countries like Malaysia, Thailand, South Korea, Saudi Arabia, North England, Russia, apart from travelling to the USA from New York, LA, San Francisco and Miami.
Over the past 5 years, I have been living alternately between Jakarta, Indonesia, and Milan, Italy, and still awaiting whether to continue with this life-style or to just live in one country or another. All subject to awaited development that can help me determine which country it is. Preferably, Italy, although I do not have any family here but some friends. And also to be close to my other friends in Europe as I do feel more at home here.
Most of all, to be near to my only child, a daughter, who lives and works in New York.
The climate helps very much as well as life style, food, and just the freedom to walk anywhere.
Sadly, I am a widow – who recently lost her husband in March 2014 and given that he was Italian and on his account that I find myself living here as without him, I wouldn’t have ever come to know Italy, let alone living here and knowing its language and culture only because we met in Jakarta, Indonesia, where within a month, he asked me to marry him. He left back to Italy after two months we were together, then came to Jakarta again but this time with the ticket in his hands (no Internet yet) he came himself for me so that we could come to Italy together and I didn’t have to come alone. That’s how gentleman he was and for this I am forever grateful.
Therefore, this blog is to share with you the knowledge that I have gained throughout my life here on various subjects although thus far, I’ve only written in regard to style in clothing.
I will write a miscellaneous of things that follow and I hope very much that the little bit of tips or experiences I have had so far could enlighten you somewhat in your perspectives of life in general.
