        Oh, you know the Korean word gongju? 🙂

        Yeah, we must go learn more languages and be a polyglot!

  7. Hi Akhlis,

    Just came across your blog, and like it much. Would love to read more, even though I sort of hate you for not gaining weight in spite of you being an emotional eater. That’s unfair to the rest of us!

    1. akhlisblog says:

      Hi !
      Thanks for dropping by. Haha. That looks unfair but maybe there’s reason behind that. Soon we’ll find out 🙂

    Did you really study at Diponegoro University? English Department? :O


    1. akhlisblog says:

      Hi there!
      Yeah I did. Hehe. How did you know?

  9. rmedina49 says:

    Even though I am a dancer, do you have any tips on how to become more flexible?

    I have a tight lower back, and hamstrings, which prevent me from being able to do more.. help? 🙂

    1. akhlisblog says:


      Tight lower back and hamstrings? I guess you should try uttanasana (standing forward bend pose). Here is hoping 🙂 http://www.yogajournal.com/poses/478/
      Hope it answers.

    Hi Akhlis. My name is Dawn Meier and I wrote the book A Bird Named Enza. I found a website with your entire Thesis you wrote about my book when you went to Diponegoro University in 2009. I had no idea you were doing this and wanted to find you online to tell you what a great job you did.
    Also, I assumed you passed the requirements for your degree. It is pretty crazy to pick this Thesis up from half way around the world. I am honored you picked my book for your work. No one here in the United States can believe that it really happened (including me).
    Good luck with your literature degree. I see from the internet that you are using your degree wisely. Good for you. Have a good life. Dawn

    1. akhlis says:

      Oh my goodness! Hi Dawn! So great to see you. Finally! Thank you for reaching me out. So flattered. Hope you are doing well. The current pandemic brings me back to scenes in the novel. Yes I always remember the novel. Would love to exchange some more stories with you via email akhlis@protonmail.com. so nice to see you, Dawn.
