The Most Creative and Innovative Company

Leave a comment

I am Indonesian.

And what defines my nationality is what I eat…

therefore, I am really thankful to the innovation that was first initially begun by Mitsubishi Corp… For me, as an Indonesian, I do think that they deserve a noble for inventing the most-used appliances of our Indonesian life…

ALL HAIL THE MIGHTY RICE COOKER!!!

Okay. All people might just think this is stupid but I think this is highly innovative! Imagine what will happen to the world without rice cooker! Our precious time will be wasted just to make the rice manually.

With rice cooker, we can save up to 60 minutes of working per cooking rice. Once a day, we eat rice 3x. So we save almost 120 minutes of working time per day. oh. what a life!!!

So that’s why in my opinion, Mitsubishi is the most creative and innovative company. Because they invented rice cooker.

that’s all =P

Future of Communication

Leave a comment

By any means, communication technology is one of the fastest-changing and fastest-improving technology in the society.

(oh well this is just what I think will happen if the fairy godmother is a gadget-freak, she’d have given cinderella a pager, yeah right =P)

when I was given assignment on how to think about the future communication, I came up with an idea based on the difficulties of a long-distance couples.

Since long ago, long distance relationships has been a cause for severe, sad break-ups from couples around the world. True that things have become better because of the advanced communications technology, but to countries like Indonesia, where the cost of communications is still relatively high compared to the standard wage, long distance relationship might end up in mishaps like this:

1. misunderstanding because no text reply (no cell phone credit)

2. a fight because of Blackberry Messenger delay (bad infrastructure of our country. ugh)

3. suddenly cannot do any video call because the wi-fi connection is screwed up (once again, bad infrastructure of the country)

4. blackout in the house, and no internet connection. so no chat, no video call, just plain, short, and expensive text message if your significant other resides out of state.

5. a very bad situation of missing each others too much that your partner might even think an affair will drive away the loneliness (NOO!!!)

I hope in the future the world, yes the whole world is covered with wi-fi connection with one sole providers. It means that all our devices are connected and and intertwined with one network.

If you want to text, it will work in the mechanism of Instant Messaging

If you want to call, it will work in the mechanism of VOIP (Voice Over Internet Protocol)

So you don’t need to pay for other fees, just pay for the monthly internet, no cell phone credit needed, and of course it will be a lot cheaper. and cooler. use your device for texting, or video call, or e-mail. watch the same video with your partner together. awww ❤

Japan!!!

What is the most creative and innovative country? There is no exact measurement to be creative and innovative, and this result solely comes from my very own judgement, preference, and tendencies (you see, I have a tendency to like anything japanese due to my inner otaku that can never cease no matter how old I am).

And my answer is, yes obviously Japan.

So for those who are very curious about Japan, here is a brief explanation from our beloved trusty wikipedia:

Japan (日本 Nihon or Nippon), officially the State of Japan (日本国 About this sound Nippon-koku or Nihon-koku), is an island nation in East Asia. Located in the Pacific Ocean, it lies to the east of the Sea of Japan, China, North Korea, South Korea and Russia, stretching from the Sea of Okhotsk in the north to the East China Sea and Taiwan in the south. The characters that make up Japan’s name mean “sun-origin” (because it lies to the east of nearby countries), which is why Japan is sometimes referred to as the “Land of the Rising Sun“.

Japan is an archipelago of 6,852 islands. The four largest islands are Honshū, Hokkaidō, Kyūshū and Shikoku, together accounting for 97% of Japan’s land area. Most of the islands are mountainous, many volcanic; for example, Japan’s highest peak, Mount Fuji, is a volcano. Japan has the world’s tenth-largest population, with over 127 million people. The Greater Tokyo Area, which includes the de facto capital city of Tokyo and several surrounding prefectures, is the largest metropolitan area in the world, with over 30 million residents.

And which side does Japan convey it’s superiority on innovation?

Their tendency to rely on… Machines. Err. Well they are the first who invented robotic dogs, do they?

And they even merge it with their daily life, especially in food. That’s why cheap sushi nowadays are produced by these little fellows

They can even make the rolled sushi ones using other machine!!!

And for your information, Japan is the country with the most number of patents in the world. If you don’t believe it, check this out.

Note that Japan has a side of somewhat very wacky creativity.

When it comes to food, the japanese is known to be very sensitive about the appearance. They like their food to be presented in details and in “tiny” bits. sometimes the appearence can be a bit overwhelming for those whose in charge as the cook…

Pretty cool, huh? All are made using edible ingredients.

Another thing. The Japanese love their tofu and often, due to their activities, aren’t able to enjoy freshly made tofu (which they consider a delicacy). However they very creatively solve a problem using this…

This is a bottled soymilk, with a coagulating powder for tofu (notice the red packet there? Yes it is the magic powder that turns soymilk into tofu). To have it freshly made, simply pour the soymilk into a bowl, mix the powder into it and then pop it in the microwave for a few minutes and yeah! You’ll have a freshly made tofu, without the hassle.

They were pretty much creative and innovative for a nation, I guess.

beneath my name

Leave a comment

my name is nistria.

And if I asked my parents why I was named Nistria, their answer will be something like this:

“Nis” comes from the city where my mother and father live in france, Nice (you actualy read it like “nissss” not “naisss”)

“Tri” because it was the third year my parents lived in France.

and “A” just to make it sounds girly. hahahaha

and then my grandfather give me a chinese name, Zeng Mei Ying.

Zeng is our family name, Mei comes from Mei Gui, means roses, and Ying means heroism, something heroic and such.

Combined that, I like my name Nistria because it’s very unique (you can hardly find other person with the same name as mine!) and I like my name Mei Ying because it sounds good and it is easy to be written.

and i guess that’s all about my name…
