About Me

Hi, there! I’m Lya.

I am a Freelance Writer focusing on lifestyle and entertainment. I realized my passion for writing when I joined Indonesian Film Festival Australia in September 2013. And Hello Asia, an Asian entertainment magazine later in October 2014.

I greatly enjoy exploring and trying new experiences. I spend a lot of time hanging out with friends over good food and coffee, and taking beautiful stylized photographs, too. You wouldn’t believe the amount of unpublished food and travel photos I have on my phone because of that. So, I started The City Walker with the intention of systematically documenting and organizing these visual stories of my food and travel experiences here as a diary.

Today, The City Walker is a food and travel blog dedicated to providing honest, detailed and trusted hyperlocal information on what to do in and out of various cities in Indonesia and Australia.

While I love blogging as a hobby, my ultimate dream is to work at a leading media advertising agency like Nuffnang and use my skills to make a difference, encourage fellow creatives to follow their passions, and help people be successful in life!
