So this implies that given a representative, well-sourced collection of facts and subjective observations, the reader is supplied with enough fuel to be intrigued, to read…

    ‘Aesthetics,’ a conversation salon

    A conversation in the virtual space for just a few of us to talk about… beauty. I can’t say too much here, as much as I love this topic and would expound for a lot of pages if left to. I think twenty years ago I would have. Happily. But now, I will not. Because…

    Designers Korner | ‘Generation X’

    This is a conversation salon for a maximum of 4. It’s for designers, especially those who are working remotely and in a nomadic way.

    Kurt Cobain

    Wikipedia: ‘In March 1994, he overdosed on a combination of champagne and Rohypnol, subsequently undergoing an intervention and detox program.

  • Motivational Video on “How to be successful in life”

    Motivational Video on “How to be successful in life”

    This video is one of those motivational ones that has a cheesy soundtrack and a really over-the-top voice-over. Somehow, I like it.   Conversational startpoints Wish I could embed it right here but for some reason unknown to me it is blocked, in Cambodia. So is the Cambodia Daily, for what it’s worth. Interesting how…
