I always love Hong Kong—either for strolling around, shopping, writing and sketching, taking pictures, or simply lazying in an open-air coffee shop, reading a good book—the city never fails me. The people, the weather, the smell of seafood grilled over charcoal, the bustling sound of the crossings, the tramways, the light bulbs… somehow all feels magical and romantic. The city represents everything that’s new and everything that’s old: like the past, present and future, merged into one. It’s also for these reasons Hong Kong came up to be a city with great significance in my book #28Days. This is how Hong Kong looks like from the eyes of the girl character in the book:

    1. Episode yang signifikan terjadi di HongKong ๐Ÿ˜‰ Waktu mereka flashback tentang memori di The Peak, jalan-jalan di Tsim Sha Tsui, naik trem, terus ketemuan lagi di Sky Terrace ketika cowoknya launching buku foto, sampai memutuskan meninggalkan cowok itu ketika duudk di HongKong International Airport nunggu penerbangan ke Jakarta ๐Ÿ˜€

          1. Baik, Kakak….aku akan baca ulang lagi bukunya, dan (mungkin) tenggelam lagi dengan ceritanya. Bedanya mungkin, waktu pertama kali baca sewaktu pulang dari UWRF 2011 di pesawat jadi suasananya megang banget. Tapi tetap gak ngeh kalo ini di Hongkong! Maap ๐Ÿ˜€

If you made it this, far, please say 'hi'. It really means a lot to me! :)

We tend to shape our memories of them based on the limited time we spend with themโ€”and our memories of them, over time, will be replaced with one single word, one single interaction, or one single feeling.
Beradadisini Love Letter to Self
I took up a personal journaling project this week: writing a love letter to myself before bed. I work on a thin A6-size handmade paper journal I got from a paper artist, Els. The journal is thin and small enough, so it doesn't overwhelm me. It feels like I am only going to work on a small project.

Standing up for yourself does not have to look aggressive. It does not have to feel like a fight. It's not always about convincing others or explaining yourself and your decisions with the hope that everyone else understands or accepts your choice.

Hi. I'm HANNY
I am an Indonesian writer/artist/illustrator and stationery web shop owner (Cafe Analog) based in Amsterdam, the Netherlands. I love facilitating writing/creative workshops and retreats, especially when they are tied to self-exploration and self-expression. In Indonesian, 'beradadisini' means being here. So, here I am, documenting lifeโ€”one word at a time.
