About This Blog

Puty started writing this journal when she was a junior high school student (yes, a pretty geeky one as you can guess), in 2003. After years and years being written, you might find various subjects here, such as random deep thoughts, photos from her trips, lyrics of sad songs, traveling itineraries, or wedding preparation tips and trick. This journal, or you can say blog, is alternately written in Bahasa Indonesia and English usually depending on the subject.

Oh yes, you can also follow this blog via Facebook.
