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.

Who’s your all-time favorite Indonesian IG account(s) and why?
It has to be Indonesian? Hmm… @jokesreceh on IG (nice choice!)

My fav place in Indonesia gotta be Lombok Selatan and Gili Air, since the beaches are so much better than Bali in my opinion and less touristy too.

Handling bistro or cafe projects mostly, help ’em developing menus, setting up kitchens, and training their staffs. Being a dad at night and still maintaining @sunnyfatday sometimes.

Who’s your all-time favorite Indonesian IG account(s) and why?
@ernandaputra, I guess? His life seems so right on track. Beautiful home, beautiful wife, beautiful baby, do what he loves to do and get paid from it. His taste, his style, the way he sees the world, and the way he lives his life. It just looks cool.

What’s your favorite place(s)?
To be honest, I don’t have any. My life revolves at home and studio. Oh, probably in front of the TV because I like movies, so I watch Netflix or download some movies.

What’s your favorite Indonesian local brand(s)?
Haven’t exactly bought any local product recently, but I have this outer from Batu Dyed Goods that I used to wear it to death and now it doesn’t fit anymore. Bhisma, if you are reading this, please help me repair it.

Do you have a second account on your social media? If yes, what’s the use?
@sunnyfatday to showcase my delicacies.

Who’s your all-time favorite Indonesian IG account(s) and why?
I’m following several local media accounts, but when it comes to favorite is still some personal accounts of my talented friends or their brand such as @fromtinyislands or maybe just talented people just like @lianggono.

What’s your favorite place(s)?
Jogja and Bali. Well, you know these two places are far traditional than home (Jakarta), but show more modern or forward thinking, attitude and approach.

What’s your favorite Indonesian local brand(s)?
Toton The Label, The Balletcats, From Tiny Islands, and Petanghari. I really don’t think I need to state why, they’re just so good!

Do you have a second account on your social media? If yes, what’s the use?
Yes, but I’d always love to be private and I think I need it to connect with my closest friends. You know, If I didn’t go public we wouldn’t correspond 🙂
