The blog hasn’t been updated for sometime… as its blogger has been ‘on leave’ (from typing;p). But this is the first day of 2012, so she comes back temporarily. Here is one blog post for the readers….
May you find the food yummier, the air cleaner, the environment less abused, the cost much cheaper, the neighborhood safer, the bed cozier, and your home homier than ever.

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.

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!

About a week ++ before the workshop I got ill and it got worse and worse where finally I spent most of my time sleeping and occasional Internet browsing. Sleeping did help. Just one day before the workshop I got a bit better and decided that whatever happened I’d not retreat from the workshop. However, I had no specific clue on what to deliver. I was expected to deliver something about reflexive research. I never talked about …
