An End of An Era, An Open Letter

No Mention-Transparent On Green Logo

It was fun at first, when you can do something sweet and only works in the movies like “You’ve Got Mail.” Yes, been doing it since 2010 with somebody, which inspires me to start a venture called Happinette. BTW, thank you Muse. Would like to discuss this with you someday, over coffee. It will be fun. xx :))

Things then developed from there to directions which was unpredictable. It has its ups and down. From the get go was planning to write my adventure in support of Happinette, the story behind the making. But it turned out that the story itself; as it was unfolding; had diverted me from focusing on actually developing the app.

People started to interact, observe, mock, gossip, steal ideas, got inspired, fall in love, hate, got inspired, seclude, sympathize, despise, taking advantages of, etc. I was in many position imaginable from vulnerable to offensive, but I have no regrets, for everything is a zeitgeist, life lesson and I had realize that such adventure was a journey for me to find more about me, to learn about myself, a pursuit of happiness. Take away this mortal body (to not be considered egomaniac or narcissist,) it’s a lesson about human’s life.

I am sorry if I made any mistakes during this adventure. I also forgives if anybody had hurt me in any way. For we are only humans, and humans make mistakes, from which we learn something about life.

People may deem me weird (or even crazy) but I am not responsible for their opinion. I intend; and never been more determined; to still write my life story down and finish what I had started. And also see that Happinette is launch in one fine day, for that is the purpose of the whole story, for which had happen for a purpose, to seek meaning of happiness, because it rings true in my personal life. In real time.

As in interaction, I will stop these #nomention act, and will interact in more direct manner. For those of you willing to open their hearts, I am also open heartedly interact and maybe get to know each other better. Also if you have experiences regarding this, I’d like to know more, we can create stories together. Some of you art workers, if you are inspired by this, let’s talk. Some of you I have already hinted, or even contacted, to express this in your art forms. All in one common universal theme. Happiness.

Our lives makes one story. #NoMention.

An Open Letter #NoMention

No Mention-Transparent On Green Logo

This is an open letter. This might be the end of #NoMention (maaf masih dalam bahasa Inggris, nanti akan diterjemahkan ke dalam bahasa Indonesia. Sementara ini bisa pakai Google Translate.)

As it was first started, the idea of #NoMention was conceived as a private communication between me and another Twitter user. And from that occurrence I had developed an idea for a startup company, whilst our communication developed and I had an idea to record my experience to be retold in other art form: a novel, later on a movie, and also other art forms. At first I thought it was a great (REAL) story about two people connecting via social media/internet (making it a great storyline base for Happinette,) unbeknownst to me that I opened the Pandora box of my own personal passion in my own pursuit of happiness. On the surface it seems to be about my hard work on my startup; and maybe in parallel looking for a spouse; while underneath I am in a hunt of finding the true meaning of happiness. It was all real life experiences: no gimmick nor PR thingy whatsoever. You can check with me directly about the reality of things. Continue reading “An Open Letter #NoMention”

Wake Up Young Man, Your Love Affair Has Got To Go

Benjamin Franklin on USD 100 Bill

Wake up young man, it’s time to wake up. Your love affair has got to go.

Wake Up
~ Mad Season, 1995

That was a snippet from song’s lyrics by Mad Season, a grunge supergroup in the 90s, and the first sentence rings true.

Sure it has been a wild ride for me and everybody’s involved; directly or indirectly; with me and what I have been experiencing in this last 2 years. Gosh, it’s been a long time ago since I started experiencing this wonderful phenomenon. Maybe you would like to be refreshed. Continue reading “Wake Up Young Man, Your Love Affair Has Got To Go”

I Am An Unhappy Man

Hi all. This is maybe my first blog post in years. So bear with me if my way of writing a little bit rusty.

I am an ordinary man. I live by myself. I come from a middle class family of 5 children. Actually my blood sibling is only 2. The rest is a step sister, and 1 comes from same father. My mom passed away when I was 8 from a breast cancer. My father remarried 2 years later (I think.)
