In a Relationship with a Famous Indonesian Movie Star
For the purpose of protecting the real identity of the people involved in this story, the names used in this article are fictional. Until last week I was in a relationship with a famous Indonesian soap opera and movie star. Or at least this is how it looked like at one point… This is the story of how how I got deceived and what to do so it won’t happen again. It was just a usual Friday, on February the 1st, I think it was around noon, trying to finish some work and get ready for the week-end. When suddenly, I hear the pop-sound of a new message received on facebook. It said: “hiiiiii…salutari” and it was sent by someone called Lolita Zair. I said hello back and asked her if we have ever met. Then I checked her facebook profile and realized she was a lovely Indonesian girl. She told me we have never met, but went on to ask me questions like how old I was, where I was from and if I was married. I begun to feel like the old days, in the early beginnings of the internet when the only chat available was mIRC and when you could chat with total strangers – all you had to do is approach them with the term “a/s/l” (that comes from age/sex/location). I found out she was 23 year old and apparently she only recently joined facebook because she only had about 10 friends. But I simply couldn’t get my eyes off her profile pictures. Almost all of them seemed to have been taken by professional photographers, and she looked amazing in all of them. But hey, who can blame me when she looked like this: I wanted to make sure it’s not some cousin or sister in her pictures, so I asked, and she confirmed it was herself. I asked her a couple of times how she found me, but she always avoided the answer and changed the subject. But I didn’t care. That day was my lucky day! The next month or so we spent chatting on facebook, trying to get to know each other better. I even used Google Translate in an attempt to impress her with my allegedly Indonesian skills. We talked about everything, from what we do for a living, what are our dreams to even using Google Maps’ street view to walk around Bucharest and Jakarta and visit each others’ cities. Everything seemed to be getting better and better and pretty soon she ended chatting by telling me “I love you”. Then, one day she told me that before we continue she had to tell me a secret. And so she told me she is actually a single mother, taking care of her 5 year old son. It was pretty big news, and she thought I would chicken-out, like most men and give up on her because of this. But I told her this doesn’t make her less beautiful, and that I admire her sincerity. So everything went back to normal, until one day, when she sent me a message saying she was sick and she needs money to pay for her medical insurance. That’s when I begun to be a bit suspicious, but pretty soon I forgot about the incident and everything went...read more
Running Vienna City Marathon 2013 for Maia’s Smile
The article below is written by my friend, Emil Huzu. Maia is a cheerful 4 years little girl from Iasi, Romania. Very curious in her nature and eager to learn, obstinately determined and contagiously positive, she loves music and dance, and adores admiring herself in the mirror attempting some dance moves while murmuring a song J She’s very creative with her Legos and reading books in her own language and recently she’s fascinated with Mickey Mouse and his friends’ world. Maia suffered a cerebrovascular accident (CVA) before she was born, on the night when Marina, her mother, has suffered a preeclampsia while being 37 weeks pregnant (preeclampsia is when a pregnant woman develops high blood pressure and protein in the urine). When Maia was 6 months old, the neurologist diagnosed her with right spastic hemiparesis, namely: sequelae AVC ischemic perinatal territory ACM left, right spastic hemiparesis, symptomatic partial epilepsy. This is a muscle tone and voluntary motor control disorder causing muscular imbalance in her right hand, arm and leg, causing her difficulty walking and speaking. Maia began recovery at the Children’s Hospital in their hometown Iasi immediately after diagnosis. When she was 8 months old, she suffered the first epilepsy attack and began treatment in Bucharest with injectable Synacten (containing cortisone, a hormone of growth) and anticonvulsant drugs (Depakine). Following this treatment, Maia and her mother went to Sibiu (400km away from Iasi) to start a therapy with Vojta method (www.vojta.com). Progress was visible since early beginnings: when Maia was 13 months old, her motor development was significantly imbalanced compared to her ideal age-specific evolution, while after only few months of therapy she could walk on all fours and sit. She was 2 years old when she took her first steps, but her right foot could hardly touch the ground. Travelling to Sibiu for 2 weeks of therapy every 3 months, per hospital’s therapy scheme, was not sufficient for Maia’s steady recovery. For this reason, Marina rented a room and moved to Sibiu when Maia was 18 months, keen on Maia receiving daily therapy sessions for continued progress. In the autumn of 2012, together with the therapist, they also decided to get Maia wear orthotics to adjust movement of her right leg (a leg-brace that is worn on the lower leg and foot to support the ankle, hold the foot and ankle in the correct position). Now the orthotics require repalcement since her foot structure has changed, hence Marina will have to travel to Oradea (300km away from Sibiu – their temporary residence city) and invest aprox 450 Euro to replace Maia’s orthotics. Maia’s recovery is lenghty and costly and – just like running a marathon – it takes great determination and discipline, as well as a dedicated group of supporters. Maia’s therapy incures 500 Euros of monthly expenses including fees for daily recovery sessions following the Vojta method, regular medical examinations, medication and numerous expenses with travels around the country for examinations and regular medical visits. Marina’s wish is to see her daughter excel in whatever she will love doing, get as far as possible with her recovery and set an example for a Romanian society discriminating children with disability. “I confront daily discrimatory behaviours, but I keep positive and optimistic, focus on Maia’s theraphy and pray every...read more

What This Website Is All About
Aaaand it’s been launched! But before you start browsing let me tell you what this website is all about. Portfolio Website The main reason I wanted to create a website was to increase my online visibility (which before, was limited to my social media profiles like facebook, twitter, youtube and others). As a freelancer, I want to attract more clients, and the best way to do that is to present my portfolio. The testimonials section is also a great way to attract new clients. I will update my portfolio with new projects, as soon as a project is finished. You are more than welcome to comment on my work. Whether you like my work or are not very fond of it, I will make sure your voice will be heard. Blog Another purpose of this website is to inform. Thus, the blog section will contain articles on various topics, not necessarily related to design. The articles will reflect my own opinions, as well as my guests’ opinions, who will occasionally be invited to write on the blog. If you would like to write an article on my blog, just contact me and tell me about your idea. It can be about any topic: advertising, a tutorial, society, philosophy, social media, personal development, or simply your personal reflections. I don’t really care who you are or if we ever met, you are invited to write on my blog. My plan is to post an article every week, probably every Thursday – but I still have to think about it. We’ll see how it all works out. Thank you for reading this article and for being one of the first visitors on...read more
