Weekend Reading: 1984

Posted on Art, Red | No Comments


George Orwell’s 1984 is an ultimate classic that I have pend to read for way too long. I decided to take my vintage copy of the book and slipped into reverie.


When Orwell started writing the book, Europe had just ended its most futile war and was in the edge of Cold War. He predicted that within 39 years, this war on ideology would take over society and control human’s life.


I found it interesting to read Orwell’s vision now that the year 1984 has passed. I wonder how readers, in the years that lead to 1984, felt withf= the idea on this dystopic society where independent thought is a crime.

As surreal as it is for me, I could no longer tell if today’s news, how history is told, or even how our minds operate were results of our own thoughts or opinions we absorb because there were no choice – more or less resembling to Orwell’s prediction. In some parts of the world these matters come to an extreme.

WP_JOU_121128ORW_01The book’s political tone and opinion in seeing the course of society, humanity, and freedom aroused controversy yet remained relevant today. I guess, when ideology and politics becomes the only thing that matters, we no longer control them. – Rassi Narika

An Afternoon at Coffeebeerian

Posted on Life, Nero | No Comments

My writing session is an escapade in which I take my doodling/ note-taking sketchbook, a favorite Muji pen and a mind that endlessly wanders while watching the world operates.

To do this, I have been running to Coffeebeerian over the weekends. The place add up my other needs: subtle and laid back atmosphere, friends that would also wander in their own thoughts for hours as I do with mine, and a favorite poppapot – which reminds me to the an evening of coffee with sweet condensed milk in Hanoi.

The place is located at Panglima Polim road, right across to Convivium and  just a few blocks away from Tulisan’s Store in Darmawangsa.

Coffeebeerian offers a wide range of coffee – from the classic espresso or cappuccino to the more playful frappuccino and fused coffee. Along with that is a selection of beer in bottles or draught and the house’s specialty: Black Pony – a mix of espresso, mint, and stout; Cobe Brown with coffee, lemon, and draught; and the Milky Gut – where they top the coffee and beer mix with vanilla ice cream and cherry.

A glass of soothing coffee or refreshing beer with friends is a perfect follow up to an afternoon of jumbling words and observing world. I am forever tempted. – Rassi Narika
