Gardening is my passion. I only started in 2007. The trigger was the sad passing of my friend to lupus. I was very sad and would like to remember her by planting roses in my back-yard. I also remember a favorite song of a friend who was also passed away to Alzheimer. The song is about a rose garden. Thus, I planted many roses in a small spot and called it as ‘My Secret Garden’. Then, I couldn’t stop and continue planting.

I write stories about my garden in Indonesian language with a hope that they can help people who are learning Indonesian language as their readers.
