The art of being a good listener

The art of being a good listener

Being a listener is an art that needs to be learned. Or is it an option? The title is a bit misleading. Those of you who know me best would doubt that sentence, for I am a lousy listener. All I do is cutting people’s speech and offering lots of words of affirmations or advices … Continue reading

Why we write

Why we write

To write is to create art. To write is to reflect on the past, to retell the present, and to recreate the future. To write is to experience, to imagine, to dream. To write is to fly, to let yourself consume you for a moment, to believe, and to fall in love once more. To … Continue reading

The youngest child syndrome

Published on Meld Magazine on Friday, 16 March 2012. THE sister of two very talented and successful women, Marcella Purnama tells us why being the youngest child isn’t always as fantastic as everyone says it is.

The Hunger Games (2012)

mp’s rating: 3.5/5 The Hunger Games: this is the movie that everyone talks about. Set up sometime in the future, the government, aka ‘the capitol’ rules over 12 districts. To make these districts tremble in fear and respect the capitol, each year two teenagers (a boy and a girl) aged between 12 to 18 must … Continue reading

Flying Swords of Dragon Gate 3D (2011)

mp’s rating: 2/5 As a fan of Chinese war movies, I have to say that I am disappointed. The movie was shot in 3D (which is a bit weird, Avatar in 3D was understandable, but a Chinese action movie in 3D? My first reaction was “it’s ridiculous”), and not being a fan of 3D (in … Continue reading

Watching at cinema alone. Yay or nay?

Watching at cinema alone. Yay or nay?

The world is filled with the socialist and the individualist. Tell me if you ever watch at the cinema alone, and I’ll tell you which one are you. A friend of mine said “WHAAAAAAAT” out loud to his computer screen when I told him I wanted to watch The Hunger Games alone. “It is just … Continue reading

Why customers are the best marketers

If you read my post on Tuesday about Simon Sinek’s talk on Ted, I AM the perfect example of buying a company’s belief, and not what they are offering. Man, I bought a brand new iPad 3 without even bother to look at the specifications! Apple will be very rich with people like me. I’m … Continue reading

one year

one year

People are usually crazy about anniversaries. Japan’s first memorial. 9/11′s tenth year remembrance. Birthdays. Wedding anniversaries. Having lived another year after that eventful date is yet another event, and the cycle goes on. For some people, anniversaries are used as an excuse to love their partners and do some gigantic things on that one day, … Continue reading
