The Three Ballerinas - Chapter 1 (Romance)
1 chapters   —   updated May 13, 2015 06:34PM
Description: The Three Ballerinas is the inspiring story of Arianna, an Indonesian living in the California winery, and the extraordinary depth of her love for her two autistic children, and the sacrifices she makes as a single mother to enable them to live independent, productive lives. Her first born, Nina, grows up in a solitary world, unable to interact with other children, and beset by baseless fears, typical of autism. Eventually, due to Arianna's hard work in securing medical help, while struggling against the intolerance and cruelty of people unaware of the manifestations of autism, Nina becomes independent and studies art in Italy. She creates a masterpiece based on her lonely youth, entitled "The Three Ballerinas." To complicate her already overwhelming life, Arianna unexpectedly met up with her teenage love, Yudi, who is now an important Indonesian politician, and she carries a secret that could destroy the life and career of her true love.
Naga Kuning - Bab 1 (Romance)
1 chapters   —   updated May 13, 2015 06:31PM
Description: Lily Kho adalah seorang wanita non-pribumi; puteri seorang konglomerat kaya raya yang hidupnya bagaikan seorang putri raja. Namun kebahagiaan masa mudanya terenggut saat ia menjadi salah satu korban tragedi Mei 1998 di Jakarta. Sejak saat itu ia mengalami berbagai siksaan fisik dan psikologis yang teramat memilukan. Lily harus mengumpulkan seluruh semangat dan kekuatan yang dimilikinya untuk mengatasi berbagai penderitaan berat yang dialaminya agar bisa kembali meneruskan hidupnya. Para tokoh novel ini berkelana keliling dunia, antara Jakarta, Singapura, Zurich, London, Boston, dan San Francisco, dalam usaha penyembuhan Lily dari trauma kejiwaan. Kemelut cinta, penghianatan, usaha pembunuhan, dan intrik-intrik bisnis juga harus dilalui Lily untuk mengibarkan kembali keberhasilan dinasti 'Naga Kuning'. Kisah Lily ini bisa memberikan inspirasi tentang pejuangan seorang wanita yang harus mengatasi krisis pribadi dan sekaligus persoalan bisnis di sekitarnya. Pergolakan politik Indonesia di akhir masa Orde Baru yang mengantarkan bangsa Indonesia ke era Reformasi menjadi latar belakang yang menarik dan menghidupkan kisah ini.
The Yellow Dragon (Romance)
1 chapters   —   updated May 13, 2015 06:30PM
Description: Lily Kho, a Chinese woman born in Indonesia, the daughter of a rich conglomerate owner, endures all manner of physical and psychological torment due to the tragedy she experienced in May 1998 when the political turbulence shook the country. As a Chinese woman, she struggles in racially biased Indonesia and experiences a gender discrimination. Lily is forced to use all of her strength and fortitude to overcome almost impossible obstacles to succeed her father’s global enterprise. This is an awe inspiring story of overcoming adversity, as the characters travel around the globe between Jakarta, Singapore, Zurich, London, Boston and San Francisco. A gripping, heart-wrenching love story entails family honor, betrayal, murder, and business intrigue, set against the Indonesian historical turmoil of the hideous political atrocities in late 20th century. Lily endeavors to continue her father’s legacy and achieve enduring love and inner peace.

Dalam dunianya yang kesepian, Nina berhasil menciptakan sebuah lukisan berdasarkan dunianya yang kesepian, berjudul "Tiga Balerina" Seolah belum cukup rumit kehidupannya, tanpa diduga Arianna bertemu kembali dengan cinta pertama masa remajanya, Yudi, yang sekarang menjadi seorang politikus penting di Indonesia. Rahasia apakah yang tersimpan di antara mereka berdua? Akankah suatu hari nanti Arianna bisa menemukan kebahagiaan tanpa harus melukai hati siapa pun?

Her arranged marriage, and followed by her husband’s adulterous betrayal, then subsequent lost of custody of her only child forced her to escape from Indonesia to New York with only a few hundred dollars in her pocket, determined to find a better life. She finds a job as a Balinese dancer. Through hardship, long and winding roads for years in work, courtship and motherhood, such as having an illegitimate son that is disgraceful according to Indonesian moral standard, and being expelled by Indonesian community in New York, she strives to become a distinguished fashion designer.

Yusiana Basuki Welcome Spring

If someone asks me what is your favorite season? No hesitant I'll answer Spring. This season is a symbol of hope after a long cold winter when trees were barren, flowers died, leaves fell down. It is a time of renewal of everything. The birds begin chirping, the flowers: daffodils, tulips, hyacinth sprout out from the ground. The colorful leaves start blooming.

       The sublime weather is refreshing. Our spirit of life and activity jolt from our heart. We plan our gardening what annual should we plan in the yard this year. People start jogging, running or walking along walking pavements. Is it coincidence that Easter happens at the beginning of spring? Or does it represent something deeper than Easter tradition of egg hunts and lamb/ham meals?

Yusiana Basuki Winda,
Salam kenal.

Selain dari kecil ingin jadi penulis, saya juga ingin berkeliling dunia. Dengan melihat dunia banyak memberi inspirasi ke kehidupan dan tulisan saya. Di dalam kedua novel saya, cukup banyak tempat-tempat di dunia yang dikunjungi oleh pelakunya dan saya bisa menceritakan seperti itu karena pernah berkunjung kesana.

Berdasarkan pengalaman hidup saya, Dream first, then work on it, maka kemungkinan itu akan tercapai.

Semoga Winda berkesempatan juga untuk berkeliling dunia. Amien.
