An author, an avid reader, an occasional blogger, and an observant dreamer. While the idea of deconstructing ephemerality through writings fascinates her the most, she has to concur with the idea of writing just for fun. Sometimes you might find her sipping espresso at the nearest cafe, other times she would be haunting vacant seats in food courts while munching on her endless supply of chocolate bars.
okay, let's trying to write it in English since this poem all written in English, hehe.
first, about the cover. wow, my prediction was right, it was orange haha. I do love it, especially the title's font that looks so hand-written-ish yet still feels modern.
and about the book, hmmm these poems made me realised that my wording is still restricted hahaha. too many times I have to stop and just stare at the sentences, then decide to turn the next page haha. but the more I flip the paper, the more I found some of my favourites. some of them are: banana, tangerine & chocolate, fall in love with a man, grief, something about a balloon that I forgot the exact title, and many more you can find it by yourself.
but if I can sum up my favourites into a single chapter, I do love the last chapter so much, including the title of this book. it gives warmth that I don't know I needed before. thank you kak 🧡
First thing first, the covers. It reminiscing how beautiful the autumn season is (in case u wondering, this is written in covid seasons). And for all I know, she published this book by herself is W O W.. Now, the prompts inside, all with meaningful message inside it. My favorite is "Snowman", it slams us to the facts, the joy we had when we childhood, is a bittersweet to as we grow old.
It's my first book with such a concept. It's fascinating to see that a story can be formed from just a few key words. Alicia has done awesome job in doing it. I could related to a few stories so well that I relived those moments. Don't miss the last section ... It definitely uplifted me..
