Welcome Note

img_5148Hi there,

Welcome to my site where I write everything and anything.

I’m a random thinker who is always passionate about writing, traveling, and taking picture. Those are, for me, some of the best ways to capture memories in life.

I share the memories here so they will remain and hopefully useful for those who read them. Feel free to click around and leave a comment. Any feedback from you will be much appreciated.

By the way, my name is Diyah Hayu Rahmitasari, better known as Hayu Hamemayu which is actually my pen name. I am the author of Circle Route and the co-author of Siklus Cinta and Jendela-jendela Aba (Laki-laki dalam Kereta short story) and the alpha female of the Unsettled Family. Back in Indonesia I was a scholar in media and communications (my academic portfolio can be found here) and a freelance contributor for Indonesian media. My work has appeared in The Jakarta Post, Media IndonesiaKompas, Majalah Kartini, Medium, The Newbie Guide to Sweden, and Indonesia Travel Magazine among others.

Currently, I live in Lund, Sweden, pursuing my never ending dream as a writer and a passionate traveler.

Happy reading,

  2. I am glad to hear that your new year resolution for 2012 is to again activate your blog. May be you have forgotten me, the guy searching for news of Retno Susanti and Chossy Pratama –Tersanjung.

    The last email I received from you was that you are doing your S3. You are not in Indonesia. Where are you now?

    Happy new year.


    1. Hi Andi,

      I do remember you. I’ve got your email and the song. I did reply your email didn’t I?

      Thanks a lot for that. Been so busy recently. I am doing a research for my master thesis. Btw, I’m in Perth now, doing my S2 (not S3 :)).

      Thanks for keeping in touch. I’m wishing a great year for you too.
