This Weekend Will Be..


funfuckintastic.

Pardon the f-word. Can't help it. October has always been my 'do-not-disturb-me' month since 2007. Ubud Writers and Festival is the sole reason. This lit groupie has been going around the island in a rampant buying trip to get as many books as possible and have them signed later. I will be in Ubud on Saturday and Sunday, attending as many session as possible and jotting down the smart lines those authors throwing to the audience.

I'm especially super excited to meet and hear from these authors:

Trinity 'The Naked Traveler' (whose blog I've been reading for few years about her adventures or misadventures as the rare breed of Indonesian backpackers. Her writing has always been fun, inspiring, enjoyable and self-deprecating)

Agustinus Wibowo (another breed of Indonesian travel writer/photographer who has a deep love and interest in Middle East countries)

Junot Diaz (I've only read one book of his but it's enough to made me in love with his work)

Alberto Manguel (the Father of All Bookish People and Thing. I hope they will sell his books because it's been almost impossible to find those).

Andrea Hirata (the Indonesian literary wunderkind who one day just started to write and writing is what he has been doing since then. A musical show based on his book just recently performed in Singapore).

and the others.... talented writers, poets, musician, artists who comes from the farthest corner of this globe and made it to Bali. I will see you all later.

Hello! I’m Eve Tedja

I have been a professional writer for four years.


During that time, I have worked as a permanent contributor for Let’s eat! Magazine, Hello Bali, epicure, and published my articles in several other magazines like Venture, Panorama, Bravacasa, and Bali & Beyond.


Words, sentences, stories... these are my passion. I love to take new challenges in writing for various format and media. I create contents for websites, blogs, and communication materials. I’ve also worked as a copywriter, translator, coffee book editor, social media coordinator, media consultant, and even writing for a specialty coffee packaging.


Interior design, travel, environment, culinary, culture, history, and social issues are some of the themes that I have worked with in the past. I love getting involves with individuals, companies, organizations, and communities with stories to tell.
