(*This was written on January 2021): I must say, I used to travel alone at night, out on the road. I’ve had jobs with odd or unusual working hours. For example, your 9-to-5 is actually my 12-to-8...


From the moment The Ex-Guardian saw The Mighty Queen sitting on the front porch, she’d known that she’d been dreaming. She was back in The Isolated Castle, instead of the rented room she was in. ...


As predicted, it’s not over yet. We’ve heard the new #Covid strain in the UK. Should we call that #Covid20, then? Nope, I’m not making a joke. That’s a serious question. You don’t need to answer ...


That’s right. There’s your bad news. You may not believe me, which is fine. After all, I’m still single and childless. What the hell do I know, right? Right?? You’re going to lose that kid. I’m n...

"AFTER THE SHOT..."

I dare say that nobody likes injections,  not even for their own good. The tough may claim that they can take any shots. However, that doesn’t mean they like them. There’s a difference. I remembe...


I’ve got the privilege to get to know another talented poet from my own country. I met Indah P. at Malam Puisi Jakarta (Jakarta’s Poetry Night). She was there to promote her poetry anthology – “B...

"NOT FOREVER"

There is no such thing as ‘forever’. Call me a cynic, but you know it’s true. We’re mortals and bound to change. What you may enjoy now, you may not be keen on later. You may also say you love th...


Alright, I admit it. I don’t always stay home during this pandemic era. Once in a while, when I have to, I still go out too. Okay, fine. Sometimes I do go out because I just want to, okay? Grocer...


“Life is short. Why hold grudges?” I’ve heard that from a lot of people, quite often already. My best friend Hazel Eyes is one of them who thinks so too. Don’t get me wrong, okay? I know what tha...


The title is ironic, because I’ve written an article about how to limit your child’s screen-time during a pandemic. The truth is, even before #Covid19, it’s already been challenging enough – espe...

"IT AIN'T OVER YET"

The year 2020 isn’t over yet. Neither is the Covid-19 pandemic. It depends on where you live and how effective the government’s policy is. No matter what so many people out there would like to be...

The year 2020 isn’t over yet. Neither is the Covid-19 pandemic. It depends on where you live and how effective the government’s policy is.

No matter what so many people out there would like to believe, the terror isn’t over yet. This phantom-like virus called Corona is still lurking around, ready to take more victims.

The sooner we come to terms with the whole situation, the better and quicker we cope with and adapt to it. No other choice.
