Indonesian politics, satire, sex jokes, thoughts Show more
Fictional candidates Nurhadi and Aldo got into the Guardian, presented as a voice and consequence of dissatisfied and stressed young voters.
Reading it, I suppose it could also look like we want a liberal candidate -- someone who supports LGBT rights, marijuana, etc. But a candidate like that isn't only nonexistent, but also unthinkable in today's Indonesia.
So we created a fictional candidate instead.
Indonesian politics, swearing Show more
It's no longer a question of which presidential candidate is the lesser evil, but whether to abstain or not abstain.
Fuck this shit.
Indonesian politics (or lack of it) Show more
It's debate night.
I'm not watching. I'm just so exhausted from trying to keep up with both of the candidates while stuffing myself with Nurhadi-Aldo memes ... I'm not watching. I feel kind of guilty about that, like I'm not taking the democracy seriously or something.
I'll catch up later via YouTube or the newspaper or something I guess ... but not today. Just exhausted. Just sick of everything.

next experiment: find out whether you can actually create a whip cream lookalike with milk and agar.
cooking eggs Show more
Chocolate-flavored egg yolks cooked in a bain-marie taste surprisingly decent. Not too soft, rather chewy, and still retaining that egg-ey flavor.
I, however, have discovered that I'm not terribly fond of steamed meringue. (To be honest? Ew.)
Pronoia is a state of mind that is the opposite of paranoia. Show more
Whereas a person suffering from paranoia feels that persons or entities are conspiring against them, a person experiencing pronoia feels that the world around them conspires to do them good. -- Wikipedia
(-) Indonesian politics. Social mental burnout. Show more
Currently feeling pretty worn down with Indonesian politics postings in Facebook.
Still keeping with it because I believe in the current government and I do not see complete dismantling of liberal democracy as a viable near-term solution for Indonesia at this time, and I fear attempting so would just allow for either populist demagoguery or religious fascism to take firmer hold here. Or some combination thereof.
