My Winning Travel Essay: “Andalusia: That’s Life”

Maybe you remember that I won Traveling Essay Contest held by Books & Beyond last year. I posted about it here. The essay was then featured in printed edition of Jakarta Globe, November 20, 2013. I know it was late, but late is better than never, right? Advertisements

Beberapa Review Buku DestinASEAN

Berikut beberapa review dari The DestinASEAN :) …. Buku dengan tebal sebanyak vi + 246 halaman terbitan B first (PT Bentang Pustaka) ini sebenarnya lebih mengungkapkan pengalaman personal para penulisnya dibanding menceritakan objek-objek wisata di Asia Tengggara secara detil. Dengan pilihan destinasi yang berbeda, mereka mengisi perjalanan dengan cara masing-masing. Dengan gaya penulisan yang berbeda-beda dari setiap penulisnya, mereka mencoba mengungkapkan apa pandangan mereka mengenai budaya manusianya, kota, sejarah maupun alam dari destinasi 10 negara ASEAN tersebut. …. http://samleinad.wordpress.com/2013/08/26/resensi-the-destinasean-menjelajah-kisah-di-10-negara/ __________________________________

Winning Books & Beyond Traveling Essay Contest Pt.2

Alhamdulillah I won the Traveling Essay Contest held by Books & Beyond. This traveling contest was held for the second time and many many thanks to Riri for reminding me again after I skipped the first one (guess who won the first prize for the first one? Naya Moeda, hahaha *wink then toast*). I wrote my impression about Andalusia and how it kept the history and silently retold the story. In 500 characters and 7 photos pressed in 2 pages of A4, I described a bit about my history, a piece about Albayzin, and also a bit about Alhambra. Still the most important message was about the change in life. I’m not publishing it here and soon because Books & Beyond told me that it’s going to be published in some print media :’) The announcement was done last Saturday in Lippo Mall Kemang, Jakarta, during a talkshow by Miss Jinjing. Thanks Ayah, Bunda & Agun for coming and being the greatest support system :) I got huge parcel of Delfi chocolate, voucher from Books & Beyond …
