Diving Into Social Media. Bali Indonesia 15

Going deeper into social media.  

I have never been one to enjoy being in front of a camera. I am not so fond of my voice either. But I am going to take this step into the great unknown of the TikTok world.  

All the interviews and photo’s I have taken as of late are also going to be available as TikTok and YouTube content. Yup, I am going to take a giant leap of faith and put myself out there. I feel that this is a big step for me. I would consider myself an introvert and while I am not shy, I would say I am reserved.  

Not for nothing, but when we played soccer, I had absolutely no reservations about getting changed at the side of the field. I guess that is a different type of shyness or lack thereof than appearing in front of a camera. 

Public speaking. 

This one is a hit and misses with me and sometimes I am fine with it and sometimes I am nervous as hell. When I gave a two-and-a-half-hour lecture to a class of college students at Humber Collage I loved it. Yet certain settings are more nerve-racking than others.  

So being on camera one on one with the locals seems to be alright for me for now. If I get into bigger settings who knows what will happen? For the time being, I am going to make my YouTube and TikTok links available here, and let’s see how things go in the future.  

It is informative and fun. 

Having locals like Arik, Kevien and Pak Nyoman on my channel has given me great insights into the locals and their lives. While we are all so similar, we are all so different with many commonalities that should make us appreciate each other.  

What I find is that when we look at the small picture, we are all so close…  

It is when we open up to bigger concepts and talk about things such as large-scale business or bigger conversations about the world, is when things change. They are less inclined to look at other parts of the world on social media and usually follow locals on the platforms.  


I am very unsure how my #countercontent movement will go. Most if not all social media in Bali is based on the wow factor. The beaches the sunset, the waterfalls, and the food.  

My focus will be locals and it will be the very opposite of what is currently out there. Most of the content revolves around tourists bragging about where they have been, how cheap things are, and complaining about the traffic.  

Let’s see if the local language, the content, and my delivery will get me any views. Bali is hot, so on some videos, I am clearly overheating. Not so much because of the heat but more because of the nerves. If you do follow up and watch some of my content, get ready to see a bald white man sweating on some of the videos.

Zsolt Zsemba has worn many different hats. He has been an entrepreneur, and businessman for over 30 years. Living abroad has given him many amazing experiences in life and also sparked his imagination for writing. After moving to Canada from Hungary at the age of 10 and working in a family business for a large part of his life. The switch from manufacturing to writing came surprisingly easily for him. His passion for writing began at age 12, mostly writing poetry and short stories. In 1999, the chance came to write scripts. Zsolt took some time off from his family business to write in Jakarta Indonesia for MD Entertainment. Having written dozens of soap operas and made for TV movies, in 2003 Zsolt returned to the family business once more. In 2018, he had the chance to head back to Asia once again. He took on the challenge to be the COO for MD Pictures and get back into the entertainment business. The entertainment business opened up the desire to write once more and the words began to flow onto the pages again. He decided to rewrite a book he began years ago. Organ House was reborn and is a fiction suspense novel while Scars is a young adult drama focused on life’s challenges. After the first two books, his desire to write not only became more challenging but enjoyable as well. After having several books completed he was convinced to publish them for your enjoyment. Zsolt does not tend to stay in one specific genre but tends to lean towards strong female leads and horror. Though he also has a few human interest books, he tends to write about whatever brews in his brain for a while.
