thank you for signing up!


Welcome to the blog and thank you for subscribing to my newsletter. 

As a welcoming gift, here’s a free e-book for you, Behind the Pages, which contains my interviews with several Indonesian writers about their creative process and inspirations. 

From time to time, I will send you happy mails with some thoughts, musings, or updates about my life (that feels a bit too private to be shared via social media). This can be in the form of love letters, tiny poems, lists, life lessons, recommendations, journal excerpts, journaling prompts, or free downloads. 

If you want to reply to my happy mails, you can. I read incoming emails and even if it may take me a while to reply, I usually reply!

I promise not to spam your inbox (I usually send one or two newsletters per month) and I won’t share your data with anyone (because I hate it when people share my data without my permission).

I hope you’ll enjoy my happy mails in your inbox! If, at any time, you realized that you’re not interested in receiving any updates from me, feel free to unsubscribe! (I’m totally cool with that)

You can also add me to your address book so the mails won’t go into your Spam/Promotional folder by mistake. 

much love,

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 life—one word at a time.
