Raining is one of my favorite things in the world.

Naela Ali is a talented illustrator who has Japanese-ish touch in her works. She gorgeously created this book. Now I already mentioned two of my favorite things.
Stories for Rainy Days by Naela Ali is available in nearest book stores. You can also check her other adorable works in Asobi.

Seorang teman lainnya mengabarkan pembukaan POST Santa yang baru di hari Sabtu, 30 Juli 2016. Sayangnya walaupun dihadiri oleh beberapa penulis cukup ngehits, hari itu saya tidak melangkahkan kaki ke luar rumah sama sekali. Minggu 31 Juli 2016, agak mendadak, saya dan teman saya Azmi pergi ke sana. Continue reading
Sailormoon menginvasi negeri kita ketika saya SD. Prajurit cantik, baju yang cantik, Mamoru Chiba yang tampan, menyedot perhatian anak-anak di Indonesia, dan saya yakin di dunia.
