Talking about some freaky stuff

Hey everyone, since the last post, there has not been much change. I am busy doing different kind of stuff (mostly baking & experimenting in the kitchen but also some independent projects), so I won't be updating that often. Don't worry, deep down I am still the very geek that can't bear to be away from her world wide web connection too long. If you are interested to find out what I have been up to or the stuff that I have been reading then just follow me on my twitter JuliaBanana. The ease of sharing is just too addictive for me ;-)

Now, I present you one of the wackiest and coolest video that I have watched in the last couple week: Muzorama. Muzorama is a short 3D animation film based on the universe of french illustrator Muzo. Produce in 2008 with a six weeks production time. Directed by Elsa Brehin, Raphaƫl Calamote, Mauro Carraro, Maxime Cazaux, Emilien Davaux, Laurent Monneron and Axel Tillement.

Ooo and I promised to share the result of some of my kitchen alchemy on the next post :-)

Headache and item not as described

Since the last couple weeks I have been contemplating to go back to Jakarta. Europe is still reeling from the economic crisis and it is quite obvious that the future is in Asia so I thought that may be it is time to return so I can catch up in time. However, this business of returning is so complicated, at least I don't have any mortgage obligation, but there are still enough headache. The problems range from mobile phone contract (that ends next year grrr), legalising all sorts of documents, last minute trips around Europe as well as selling my furnitures (and some wardrobe). eBay and Craiglist are of course on the top of my mind, but whee it is difficult and troublesome! Anyway, out of boredom I was browsing around and somehow I accidently found itemnotasdescribed. A website dedicated to share some terrific ads with offers that people can't refuse! You really need to check it out and here are some excerpts from the website.

My first North Korean commercial

Ever curious with what kind of commercial they have in one of the most mysterious country in the world? Well, now you get the chance to take a peek on how they do it. I used to think that they only have state broadcasts with no commercial, but I suppose this can be count as part of the propaganda. Kim Jong-il has authorised North Korea's first beer advertisement for the Taedonggang Beer Factory. The "Pride of Pyongyang" beer claims that it will help ease stress. It also promises: "It represents the new look of Pyongyang...It will be a familiar part of our lives." Enough said I guess, just enjoy ;-)
