i read @ikanatassa's novel, Underground, during her early writer career.
i didn't have much expectation, didn't know her either. i picked her novel randomly from @ditjenanggaran library just because its unique cover.
the novel accompanied my 11 days southeast asia backpacking trip. i read it intensely particularly when i spent 22 hours in a sleeping bus from Laó to Viét Nam. the novel turned out unexpectedly good, entertaining, light to chew, and the story bout MTV's VJ brought so much fun memories from my mid-school era. (( poor you millennials to only know youtube and instagram!!! ))
another thing that surprised me was how much i addicted to read after i finished the novel. "damn it! why it finished," i cursed. my brain was pretty much on reading mode still. once we're landed in Viet Nam after a kind of hell road experience, i grabbed newspaper, magazine, road sign, store sign, anything that my eyes could read.
that taught me something, when i tried to focus my lyfe all at once, the will and power would be unstoppable.
thanks @ikanatassa for not keeping your writing skills to yourself, and rather sharing it to all of us, fakir thinking!
capturing a moment of you with your idol, bu @smindrawati, is a way of me thanking you.
much love and God bless Ü 💖
by the way, great event @djknmuda. congratulations!
