  7. Assalamu’alaykum Mbak Julie.
    Serius, saya baru pertama kali tau kalo ada penulis yang namanya Julie Nava. Mudah2an itu tidak membuat saya dicap “kuper”:mrgreen:
    I’ve planned to also have published writings too, but perhaps, need a lot more improvements. Wish someday I can receive tips and then be passionate for it.
