Oh, hello!


Ok fuck. I thought describing myself will be easy but I guess not. I’ve spent an hour staring at this page, thinking what I could say about myself. Obviously, it’s the nice things I want to say but then I realized, facts will be better than a fake-nice profile. Since we all know, no one is perfect.

So here I go.

I am Audrey Joanne. I have a weird last name that I used to be really conscious about. My last name have had a lot of people asking me questions like:

  1. Do you speak English?
  2. Hm, I am asking for your last name. Not your middle name.
  3. Could you spell that for me, please?

So when I was little, I really really wanted to add my family name to my name. But it never happened and I am glad that my full name is Audrey Joanne.

If you are wondering why I have such a strange full name, the only reason I can tell you is that I am Chinese Indonesian and back in Indonesia, you can really do a lot of crazy shit and somehow, my family name just did not appear in my birth cert. Either it got cut off because my name became way too long or the hospital simply didn’t care. Welcome to Indonesia, guys!

I love life. No idea how and what. At one point of my life, I used to hate my life. In my journal, I used to scribble how much I fucking hate my life. But a few years later, it was as though a light bulb lit up. I fell in love with life. I love every single shit that have happened in my life. Good or bad. I love how life has been to me all these time. So forgiving, so understanding, sometimes menacing but most of the time life is perfect. My love for life is one of the reasons why I am blogging. I want to share my joy with you. I want to spread this inexplicable happiness and inspire you, my beloved readers.

I have a passion for writing. I love writing. I love words. Most of all, I love inventing my own words. So if you see weird words you don’t understand, they probably only exist in Audrey’s Dictionary. Tyvm. My love for writing is the major reason why I blog. I’ve wanted to be a writer and until now, that dream hasn’t changed one bit. I am also a contributor at You can check out my writing here.

You can reach me at for collaboration opportunities or if you just want to say hello. I am very friendly. Hehe.
