Thank you for mentioning me and tagging me in your pictures and postings. But most of all, thank you for coming, watching, and listening to our stories and music. Yang indah berakar dari Allah Ta'ala, yang jelek berumbi dari diri saya sendiri. So much to learn. Hadza min fadhli rabbi.

HARINYA SUDAH TIBA! See you today at 4-6pm, Selut's booth 4009-4011, Dewan Tun Abdul Razak 4, KL International Book Fest, PWTC. RIPTA's latest publication 'IKHLAS: An Illustrated Memoir of Conversations' and its bestselling anthology 'Untuk Yang Telah Pergi' are waiting for you! My friends - Kullest Fafa, Mosyuki Borhan, Adi Wafi - will be there too. Jangan biar kami dan buku-buku kami tertunggu-tunggu ya?

April 28, 2017

Kita jumpa di booth Selut Books esok, okay? My books (Langit Vanilla, Mesin Cahaya Masa, Untuk Yang Telah Pergi, and latest, IKHLAS) will be there throughout the PBAKL 2017 week but my meet-and-greet session will be tomorrow 4 to 6 pm. See you!

The walls of Rumah Ipoh are filled with my poems, except this one. I decided to memorialise this unforgettable line at Rumah Ipoh's main hall because I first fell in love with Ipoh through Yasmin Ahmad's films. That poster was signed by her and given personally to me when I was a film student, as a reward for answering her questions / quizzes (regarding her work) correctly. Yesterday Yasmin Ahmad's mother, Mak Inom, passed away. I believe in my heart that they are both in a much better place and I believe Allah Ta'ala knows His servants more than anyone else. Do good and be kind.

Selain buku 'IKHLAS: An Illustrated Memoir of Conversations', buku antologi prosa & puisi 'Untuk Yang Telah Pergi' juga bakal berada di PBAKL 2017 melalui booth Selut Books. Insyaallah dua karya terbitan RIPTA ini menjadi pertaruhan saya. Kita jumpa Sabtu nanti jam 4-6 petang. Ok?

Apologies for being out of the country (read: internet-less) and for perhaps being the last person to announce the release of IKHLAS!

This illustrated memoir of conversations is published by Ripta, with drawings by Kullest Fafa and stories by yours truly. To be frank, without Fafa's doodlings, I think my writings would be nothing; just ramblings of an easily amused, easily annoyed, easily emotional young mommy. But maybe that's why this book is special to us. It is honest, simple, and real. Both of us, two ordinary people, trying to create something enjoyable (yet meaningful) and share it with the world. We hope you will like this book as much as we do! Insyaallah.

Preorders available NOW via Ripta at 017 318 3184 (Whatsapp/SMS only). First 50 preorders will receive a special gift! P.S. I'm sorry I am not the person who manages these online orders or the stock of the book, so please contact Ripta directly, ok? Thank you!

IKHLAS will also be sold at PBAKL 2017 (Selut Books's booth) where F...

Sebetulnya bukanlah "sembang lebat" sebagaimana yang di-hashtag oleh penganjur; sekadar perkongsian dari kami berdua yang masih belajar dan berjuang.

Fazleena mungkin akan kongsi tips tentang bagaimana hendak mula berkerja sendiri, "jual diri", urus masa/wang, bina nama, cari peluang, supaya tak mati kebuluran malah boleh jalan-jalan (ya!), sementara saya akan cuba kongsi tips atau pengalaman tentang peralihan kerjaya dan menangani "culture shock" setelah 10 tahun makan gaji tiba-tiba kau tak ada duit masuk akaun bulan-bulan sebab nak pursue passion secara full-time.

Survivability issue among young artists (karyawan) is real. Bila kereta ditarik, letrik dipotong, bila kau kena jual kamera kau, gitar kau, kedai kau, di-blacklist oleh PTPTN atau imigresen, benda tu dah tak berapa kelakar. TAPI, tak ada apa yang mustahil. If there is effort, there is a way. Insya-Allah.

Sesi jam 11 pagi.

Mock-up copy (hence the staples) of IKHLAS, fresh from the factory! Printing is still in process as we speak, and Rumah Ripta will be taking preorders beginning tonight - do wait for their announcement. First 50 online purchases will receive a special gift via postage, together with the book, then off we go to PBAKL 2017 insyaAllah. Semoga buku ini melukis senyuman di wajah para pembaca.

P.S. Perkataan "IKHLAS" dan "IPOH 30250" di kulit buku adalah tulisan Ikhlas sendiri. 

April 21, 2017

Now that my book 'Ikhlas' is in the printing phase, I can finally move on to my next (third!) project with Rumah Ripta: Hujan Bakawali di Rumah Tuhan. Antologi prosa dan puisi ini berjilid dua; bukunya sepasang, penulisnya lapan orang. Nanti saya cerita lagi, ya? Moga Tuhan suka dan memberkati.

Jurusunting,
Wani Ardy
