About Me


My name is Monica. I live in Sydney, Australia. I write about many things that happen in my life. I am an Indonesian. Therefore you can find some articles were written in Bahasa Indonesia. I am a Catholic. You can find some faith related articles that inspire my life. I hope you can be inspired reading my blog!

I had a blog that has been written since 2008 but I stopped for awhile. This blog is my coming-back phase as a writer, taken place in the season of Corona Virus 2019-2020.




I name this website/blog almondbeing after putting a lengthy thought of its name. Almond- is basically the combination of my husband name and my name, Albert and Monica. -being simply means life. It’s about our life as Catholics, book eaters, health freaks and tech geeks.
