Transforming into a highly essential social media for 53 million of its constantly growing Indonesian users, Instagram has become a prominent powerhouse in visually emblazoning many exciting lives of its diverse must-follow personalities. Even with different intentions of the users, Instagram has established its own rights as a platform that can jumpstart many great aspects of digital exposure. This week, we will introduce five personalities who we think are worth to know and follow.


1. I Gede Satriya Gurnitha a.k.a Jimmy
Founder of Maika Collective and South Side Hustler

What are you doing lately?
All good homie! Keeping myself productive as I can, lately I’ve been hustling maintaining the studio, in the business perspective. Also, started a new baby called Mana Living. It’s a whole new discipline for me and of course I’m preparing a few new babies to be launched next year!

Who’s your all-time favorite Indonesian IG account(s) and why?
Jeeezuz, hm… @maikacollective, @neighbourlist (THANKS!), and especially @tamanhayat. Been hooked up with bizarre plants lately. Those plants give another kind of energy to my inner soul.

What’s your favorite place(s)?
Ey, should I answer this? It’s Pizza Place, homie. There’s always a place for pizza in my tummy. Happy tummy, happy life, you feel me?

What’s your favorite Indonesian local brand(s)?
Shit, I’m a basic street guy. I’ll go for WXG Limited, ABC Nice, and Fruit of the Loom white shirt. For caps, I got a bunch of ’em, but current fav is from Badger Invaders and Inksomnia. For kicks, Nike all the way, haven’t found a local fit for me.

Do you have a second account on your social media? If yes, what’s the use?
Fuck me! HAHAHAHAHA. I do have one! You gotta be ready when peeping that window. I go by the name @gsat_fleeks. It’s an alter ego account. Well, I post my stupid videos, where’s simply comes from a chat reply or when I found a momentum where my other side of creativity comes up, HAHA.

Who’s your all-time favorite Indonesian IG account(s) and why?

Nonstoppleasure and Ageless Galaxy. Respect the spirit and movement behind them.

Nope, but I’ve been thinking about it. LOL, for what reason? That’s a secret.


3. Michelle Tahalea
Model

What are you doing lately?
Juggling in between modelling and my small enterprise 😀

@npmalina (Nicoline Patricia Malina). It’s like a one stop account for traveling, fashion, and photography, which are my top three interests. Check her IG and you’ll know why.

What’s your favorite place(s)?
Currently 1/15 Coffee Menteng. They had this perfect vibe for brunch or afternoon coffee. Reminds me of my grandma’s house a bit.

Accessories have been my current obsession, hence MASSICOT and From Tiny Island are under my radar.

I just got back from Bali, currently catching up with exciting new stuffs.

This is a tough question, since I’m not quite an explorer on Instagram that much. But, I am constantly checking @doubledeermusic and @manualjakarta for their updates. Personally for me, they always have interesting contents.

What’s your favorite place(s)?
In Jakarta, I must say Kemang. From my favorite yoga spot, coffee shop, to pizza, they are all there. Not to mention, most of them are pet friendly.

What’s your favorite Indonesian local brand(s)?
Shop at Velvet is my go to site, but I always adore Duma, Lulu Lutfi Labibi, and Saptodjojokartiko. And Rollover Reaction, too!

Do you have a second account on your social media? If yes, what’s the use?
I do actually, @latte__ramen. It’s an account dedicated to my dogs because I am basically OBSESSED with them.


5. Takun Arrosid
Film Director & Creative Director of Dekraft Visual Studio

What are you doing lately?

Going back to the roots of reading books, listening music on a turn table, and capturing moments using analogue camera.

Kunstkring Tugu Paleis, it’s not only a restaurant. It’s about the Indonesian history and it is decorated with old Chinese influence era.
