Short version: I’m an engineer working in a construction company. I love reading and listening to music. I live with my wife and we often spend our time traveling. I like learning new languages and floating these ideas that one day I’ll finally finish writing another novel.

Full version: my love for reading started when I was very young, reading comics from Donald Duck to Doraemon and Dragon Ball. But when I was about 12, my father came home one day carrying my first full-blown roman–Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets–and I became totally sold on novels.

Other than reading, I don’t know exactly why, but when I reached my teen years, I got this longing for adventures. I purposefully chose a high school out of town, travel to places I’ve never been before, stayed out of my comfort zones. In 2008, I got lucky and got chosen to go to Ukraine to present a paper in an international conference. I think it was there that I realised that this world is so huge, that I am so small, and that there are still lots of things that I don’t know and can learn.

Over the years afterwards, I got some friends, met great people, and finally, got myself a scholarship for a Master France. During that time I learned French, met even greater people, got some friends again and had awesome tutors I learned a lot from, and finally, it paved a way to where I am now: an engineer working in Europe.

This blog, originally called Nulis Hujan, has taught me a lot. But around 2017 I realised how much of a crap my writings here were, and I deleted most of them and vowed to start anew. This blog has introduced me to a world of writing, enabled me to meet many great writers and allowed me to publish a novel, short stories, and translated books. It has taught me a lot and I’ll be da***d if I don’t utilise it again for my future.

Obsessed with: fried rice, fried noodles, learning new languages (currently seriously learning ν•œκ΅­μ–΄, reading books, and exploring France and Europe in general, where I currently live with my wife.
