Caffeine is my shepherd; I shall not doze.
It maketh me wakeful through the day
It leadeth me beyond the snoozy land
It restoreth my psyche:

When I was 16 almost 17, I read Homi Bhabba for the first time. I couldn’t understand him but I thought it was cool to borrow his terms, such as ‘hybridization, mimicry, pseudo-scientific’. Being so young, I read books I couldn’t understand just so I could use some ‘new’ words. I remember using difficult words of Bhabba, Derrida, and alike in my undergrad and early grad years to sound smart and to impress my lecturers (I used Bhabba’s type of neologisms in Theory and Philosophy of Architecture to get A, …

I want to write about so many things. About the soon-to-be-formalized pornographic bill, about the US election, about the 3 dollar package that killed more than twenty people in Indonesia… ah about so many things. But, as always, not enough time/energy, and then last Sunday (yesterday) I squeezed my left hand between headboard and bedframe while fixing the bed set (ouch, that’s perhaps one of the most talented parts of my body) so now I have difficulties typing.

Perhaps it was the combination of the Dutch weather (it was raining like crazy), my lack of rest, my wild brain, and being with a partner in crime (who requested such crazy music) The result of such combination is the recording of some children songs — sung in a no-shame drunk mode :p
Unfortunately those who didn’t grow up in Indonesia wouldn’t understand the humor behind all of this craziness. But anyway…… please enjoy two of some …

…after finished writing my previous posting on “Changing” (hey, go read it before reading this one, yes, you… go!!) I was contemplating a bit about ‘change’… so here is my unorganized thoughts on it…. and yes, also showing my usual attempts to create not-so-inspiring quotes on “change”….. enjoy! or unenjoy!
Many people make changes because they want something better, something more meaningful. But the problem is life itself is constantly changing and might as well the meaning, purposes, and goals of life are changing too. So, in the end, “you have …
