So my new obsession this holiday: bold colors. I would definitely bring these orange freshness for my next boarding! – Rassi Narika
Breathless started the embodiment of French movies’ new wave in 1961. Godard translated his idea that “a film should have a beginning, a middle and an end, but not necessarily in that order”. In all senses, he delivered it triumphantly.
Looking beyond the beauty of its intentionally-chaotic storyline, I was mesmerized by the natural yet dramatic view of each scene, close-up shots of Jean-Paul Belmondo and Jean Seberg, and the alluring feature of monochromatic pallet.
Our Residence Artist, Myra Bianda shared this movie as she created her own cinematic translation for her debut collection “Bawang Putih and the Night Sky”. The complete collection of Bawang Putih and the Night Sky will be available this Summer 2013. – Rassi Narika.
An apple a day keeps the doctor away, they say. It’s an old saying that has proven true all these years.
This tiny fruit features some of the best natural medicine: protecting heart, preventing constipation, improving lung capacity, and cushioning joints – just to name a few.
It is good to keep a steady pace despite to storming weather, so we are slicing some fresh apples to boost our days!
Growing up in a tropical country, I had moments when I took granted of the year-long sun that shines in between the tree branches and fall into shades. It was not until I lived through Maine’s winter that I understood why summer is so valuable.
As much as I love being tucked in during rainy days, having the sun rays on my skin is haven. It is time to go out and have some cool ice tea or lemonade and have the wind pass through your open fingers.
Now, let’s escape for lunch at the park and let the sun caresses your skin as you greet the carnations a good day. – Rassi Narika
I met with Chris Edwards, Honeycombers’ Founder and Managing Director, a couple of months ago when she came to Jakarta. We talked on the many layers of living in this buzzing city. There were so many things to be captured in from the vibrant bajaj to the refreshing lunch in style.
Melissa and Tulisan are among the first to be featured in Honeycombers Jakarta. I say, watch out for more Honeycombers’ burst of fun! – Rassi Narika
My love for books grew since a very young age. I remember how my parents took me to the bookstore every single weekend, and since they were not much of a traveler back then; my first traveling adventures happened inside of my head.
I remember waking up in a rainy Sunday morning and made my self a glass of hot chocolate and grab any book that Enid Blyton wrote. She took me traveling to the country side of England and introduced me to winter.
As I do actual travelings today, my mind continues to walk on the path yet to be known. But as long as I have Blyton, Dahl, and Verne along (but let’s not forget Orwell, Vonnegut and Neruda), I think the unknown might reveal the best in life.
The Mahabharata comic series by Raden Ahmad Kosasih was one of my first comic collection. I was only eight years old when my mother introduced me to the grand work of this maestro. She used to read it to me as bed time stories. My favorite hero in this epic is the immortal Bisma, and the most unforgettable illustrated scene is Bisma’s sacrifice in Kurusetra land during the war of Bharathayuda, between the Pandawas and Kurawas.
Born in West Java, on 4 April 1919, R.A. Kosasih was a writer and illustrator of traditional epic legends. He was known mostly for the following work: Sri Asih (the earliest Indonesian super hero story), Siti Gahara, Ramayana and Mahabharata.
He passed away on 24 July 2012, leaving us a legacy of his black and white ink sketches. I managed to get a hold of the second published edition of Mahabharata. It is a very rare collection and the pages are extremely fragile, so I try to keep it safe inside my cube organizer. Newly revised editions of his work are still available today in a few vintage comic stores. Of course, these are never the same as the originals.
Tripple kisses, Melissa
Bésame Mucho! Kiss me a lot indeed! We love how Bésame Mucho Pouch gives flare to our very basic needs of caring and loving. At times when tears flow because you laugh too hard or fears show out of uncertainties in life, a gentle wipe and kiss could make the difference.

I am a big fan of biography movies. I develop this weird interest of wanting to know why a person become the person they are, and not many can be as big as Bob Marley – making this movie on top of my list to watch.
Yet, even though none but ourselves can free our mind, having portraits of Marley in Tulisan’s studio surely help – Rassi Narika
