About Me

I’m called Rhissa by some; Liana by others. Nobody believes me when I say I’m shy although I really am. I write to carry on the family legacy of creative output. My father is an essayist-novelist- poet-critic; my mother is a journalist with more than 30 years of experience tucked under belt; and my sister is a painter-illustrator.

Writing is a cathartic process that keeps the mind alert and the soul light.

    Hi Liana 🙂
    I’m Ivy. I just came to Indonesia a week ago. I’m from the Philippines like you are (I assume at least).

    I guess I will be based here for some time but I’m not quite sure. Right now I am tempting as a consultant for a up-and coming educational institution. I was searching for the address of Marche when I came across your blog.

    Can I ask you something? I was just wondering what you could be doing in Indonesia 🙂 And if you’re free and you feel like it, let’s go pig out at Marche!

    Yeah I like writing too but all I keep is this secret blog full of cigarette fiction/short shorts.

    Alright. Ta-ta!

    Ivy

      Hi, Ivy.

      Thanks for your note. Pigging out at Marche sounds like a good idea. How about we set it on the third week of April?
      Like you, am with an educational institution.

      Talk soon,
      Liana
