I can’t ditch magazines from my journey in each life stages. I love them since I was learning to read by looking at the pictures, coloring them randomly, and as the time goes by, I made them as my source of information. I crave for magazines every month! But yes, I don’t always own them, though. Sometimes I read them in library or borrow from a friend. There are times when I have my own, too.
These days as the digital era play a big role in our daily, I have once thought that maybe I need to subscribe to the digital version to be more efficient. You know, having those stacks of magazines are quite a mess, especially when you live in a tiny place 😀
But to these days, I haven’t tried the digital subscription since I still prefer to read the paperback version to be sniffed 😛 Maybe one day I will try it.
So here are some magazines that has been accompanying me all this long:
Yes, this is the well-known Indonesian Kids’ Magazine. I learnt to read by the help of this magazine at the kindergarten back then. My favorite story is about Oki and Nirmala. I also love how Bona always helps Rong-Rong in every comic strips at the end of the magazines. My mom subcribed me this as long as I’m a toddler. The subscription stopped when I entered elementary school, if I’m not mistaken.
I also plan to subscribe this later when Cemplu turns 2 or 3, and I want to accompany her to make some artworks to be sent and be hopefully published in it. I wonder how happy she would be to find her name’s printed on it 😀 I hope this way could make her enjoy and love reading as time goes by.
Well, actually it’s a tabloid, not a magazine. I didn’t subcribe to this but I liked to buy it when there’s a special edition about my favourite kids superstars. I still remember that time when I looked for the Amigos (a title of telenovela series) edition which was sold out everywhere. It was so sad if I couldn’t get it. But fortunately, I found one near my school and asked mom to give me some money straightaway! hahaha 😀
This is my end of junior high-schooler’s magazine. The most famous thing about this, is the cover girls’ selection (Gadis Sampul). I registered once but didn’t make it. BAHAHAHAHA *aiblama*
4. Cosmo Girl! Indonesia
I read this before Gogirl! existed. In senior high school, I regularly buy this magazine by saving my pocket money everyday to be able to buy this magazine for the next month. Yes, my parents didn’t give me a special allocation for magazine. They said it is useless, cause I read them for just some hours and then it’ll be left abandoned. They preferred me to buy some snacks instead of magazine 😛
This is my all time favourite magazine!!! I love this soooo much! ❤ Gogirl! existed in the middle of my senior high school era. When I found this one, I started to buy this instead of the prior magazine. It was not because the last one was not good enough, but my best friend regularly bought them. So I thought if I bought this, we could exchanged ours. I love this magazine because everything is worth the price. The contents are fruitful and there are a lot of great articles inside. I love magazine with a big portion of the articles instead of fashion pictures 😛 And Gogirl! is the one.
By reading this magazine, I was one having a dream of working in a magazine company as a copywriter or editor. But I don't know, this just remains a dream 🙂 I had those stacks of this magazine back at home and loved to make a scrapbook from them. Aaahh the old days~~~
I stopped reading this magazine when I graduated from college. I feel like I'm out of its age range, knowing that this magz is mainly for 17 to 23 year-old-girls. By the content itself, I can't find it suitable for me anymore haha. But yes, this will always be my favorite magazine 🙂 *kisskiss*
6. Reader’s Digest Asia
I bought this every month after graduated from college. I prefer the Asia version because it’s in English and I wanted to improve my English skill at the same time. How I love this magz for it’s content of great kindness of mankind. This magazine made me bellieve that there are still good people around this world.
7. Parenting Indonesia and Ayahbunda
Yes, those are my today’s magazines 😎 Sometimes it amazes me how I eventually am on this life stage. Time Flies! Some years ago, I found this magazines boring and didn’t care anything about it. Unlike today, where I feel like it’s an encyclopedia 😀 These ones that make me consider the digital subscrpition, I kinda need them regularly.
So, what’s your magz, guys? 🙂
